    sooooooo when do we start draining the swamp? The RepubliCONS are swamp monsters!

  2. When a couple of your core tenants are suppression and division of the masses and keeping yourself in power and wealth above all else, do you really think the Republican party cares too much that they’re being labeled as corrupt? They want and need a kingship. They need 8 years of twisting and corrupting the system beyond repair so they can turn the presidency into a kingship so nobody can challenge or unseat them, and by doing so if Trump gets his way, it’ll be a dictatorship.

    • Moscow Mitch will love this

      Exactly why they are stacking the courts for when they eventually rip up the constitution and start arresting those who are against them and payong off those who are willing. And enact their full on right wing fascist coup of our constitutional republic

    • Speak out and keep telling it! It’s the people’s freedom and self-determination that is on the line.

    • All the more reason to worry less about converting the right-wing people in your life and focusing on converting the nonvoters. Democracy only thrives if the people want it.

    *Well, we can now see who in The Swamp needs a good draining…*

  4. Senator Johnson should be recalled, immediately.

      @Bruce DaBuc i’m honestly not trying to be funny about it. its just an observation that’s worth looking at.

    • @Hitatchi Trucking Witch hunt? Those are words used by indoctrinated trump supporters? None are witch hunts!!! The orange man is really good at saying things more than three times and weak people actually began to believe the lies. It’s like listening to a song on the radio several times a day that you actually hate but by the end of the month you find yourself singing it. You may even download it. My dead mother used to always say,no matter how intelligent many may seem, how many college degrees no matter what positions that they hold,no matter how much of a fortune that they have people are still Basically dumb! They allow themselves to be controlled by fear and complacency.

    • Dispicable person.

  5. GOP are scared their sponsors will leave if they dump the trump. money talks too much to their ears for them to do the right thing. SHAME!!

    • miqoto they only have 26%. they don’t care about having a base when they are getting away with it already with Russia’s help

      I’m not hyping this fact. I received a copy of a letter today written to their Democrat Senator from a dedicated registered Democrat explaining why they switched to President Trump. If this letter represents those who nervously voted Hillary then the Democrats really do have something to worry about. The core of this letter was to do with the Democrats witch hunt while neglecting their oath of office. Democrat senators and congressman reached out to their constituents explaining why they support impeachment. That was a big mistake. This particular Democrat Senator won by a narrow margin. I predict they will lose their seat.

  6. The GOP is fill of cowards and pathetic selfcentred individuals. If there was any moral or patriotic heart of the GOP it died with John McCain. Sad.

    • Progressive Humanist | October 8, 2019 at 3:21 AM | Reply

      McCain voted with 45* 80%+ of the time. He was no “courageous maverick”, just another GOP lackey. The GOP died with reagan.

    • agreed, but corporate Democrats are not better…
      that’s why money needs to get out of politics

  7. It’s so sad to see GOP Members Soulless, with No Heart, No Integrity and to place A Man like Trump b4 Country, b4 the Rule of Law is something I never thought I’d ever see in this party..?! It’s truly so sad to witness this..!!!

      Hug Ice        ……………    They’re spineless cultists . Idolators . They can’t think straight due to this fanatic, worship-like awe of trump . They lost their souls and their reason to a shameless and pathetic con-man and criminal .   We have often wondered how a modern and intelligent nation like Germany could fall for a comic opera mass murderer like Hitler and the Nazis . Now we know .

    • @Tracy Alan I am one of those Veterans! ( An Independent Voting Democrat). Trump supposedly helped the VA, but I see it as having gotten worse. I am now a nurse at a VA Emergency room and see Veterans dropping daily from the ‘trump train’.

      @RAW ETERNITY Actually, what it is going to take is for We the People to join in the ongoing work to eliminate the poison intrusion of Big $ upon our elections/govt. This is the causative factor in all our most difficult challenges. Overturning Citizens United, restoring properly drawn district maps to end the widespread gerrymandering, an un-American impediment to our votes and the Will of the People, Campaign Finance and Election Reforms. We are the only large nation remaining that has not outlawed voting machines due to their frequent malfunctioning and ease of hacking. Turns out, hand marked, not hole punched, paper ballots are the most accurate, most tamper resistant and least costly method. We can each choose something to work on, and ask our friends and families to do the same. Such civilized, civic action does not require vast amounts of time, or even any $. We must reclaim our rightful place in our govt.of, for and by the People.

    • @RAW ETERNITY However Trump is still able to maintain his base and they are getting more and more radical. Last week I went to a fox news page on you tube and I voiced my opinion and I was told that Democrats were,socialists,commies and marxists. One told me to drop dead! So this is what it has come too!!!!. No more civility among my own fellow americans?The man is a cancer. He needs to go!

    • GOP members soulless, no heart, ALSO NO SPINE…

  8. I’m beginning to believe some senators could be Russian assets.

  9. “How does this happen to people (Republicans)”. Simple, they are cowards.

  10. This man is trying to change the subject and chuck Todd caught him and held him to answer the question, good for him.

  11. *GOP:* With fingers In their ears, singing ♪♬♩♫♪ “La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La, La!” The real “Trump derangement syndrome” *into the mind of madness.*

  12. Nothing is happening on ANYTHING because of Moscow Mitch. He’s being a useless whatever he calls himself and he is very proud of it. Everyone just sits there and allow it because that makes their job easier. And Trump says that the Democrates are the do nothing’s. Yeah right!!!

  13. Wow! Johnson sold his soul.

    I think the Republicans believing they have to remain loyal to trump to hang onto their jobs have flawed thinking. We the people will remember THEM for throwing us under the bus to support a president who cares nothing about his country or its people. They will ultimately lose their jobs AND their self respect. Decency counts and they will have to live with out our respect.

    • Unfortunately, it’s not our respect that they care about. Look at their behavior and their leader. This is all about greed.

  15. OK People of America… the Republicans refuse to defend the constitution…remember when it’s time to vote

  16. Stronger point, Velshi:
    Since when did the Oath of Office state “Support and Defend My Re-Election Campaign”?
    Since never.

  17. Politics are rotten! They’ve enable this evil to spread like this!

    • With Republicans, it’s the money that drives the politics. And it’s all about greed. Who better to represent them than the king of greed, lies and corruption?

  19. Trump: “China should start an investigation into the Biden’s”
    Republicans: “That’s not a bad thing, I think they should”
    Me: “Isn’t it against the constitution for the president to ask for aid from foreign leaders?”
    Republicans: “Well……Trump 2020”


  20. i watched the whole Ron Johnson interview yesterday. He so reminded me of that scary man i watched as a small child. His fellow Wisconsinite Joe McCarthy was also a lunatic. I have the most sincere desire that Mr. Johnson makes a full recovery and returns to sanity.
