  1. What happened to the so called “wartime president?”
    If Trump can’t even handle domestic problems, how can he handle foreign warfares.

      He’s to busy being a coward hiding hiding in a bunker the in the Waste house

    • He will be elected in a landslide. You think the Dems and their propaganda machine cares about people like Flyod? They had their orgs and paid agitators waiting for months even years in advance of his death to subvert and exploit it to use against Trump and our republic. Social justice is a business not a cause anymore. Nothing changes for the people except for losing more rights and their neighborhoods that they burned down. Americans need to stop going along with the propaganda machine’s narratives and start doing what’s best pragmatically for America. Economy, Education, healthcare, liberty, prosperity, enforcement of law running this nation constitutionally. This nation needs a constitutional reset and to clean out the corruption that is subverting, sabotaging, and laying siege over Americans denying us of our destiny ar Americans. Violence begets violence.

      @jpescool You need the military against U.S. citizens? Violence, murder, bloodshed that is all your kind advocate and it has the entire planet in peril of being extinct because of your anti- life mindset. Change you must or perish you will!!

    • X X foreign warfares? How about just foreign affairs

  2. I bet that Cantaloupe Caligula has the crowd that he’s been going on and on about – much bigger than inauguration day.

      That’s it, pour out the hatred your enslavement to the dark side is almost complete. No turning back now, release your soul to evil, let it control your destiny.

      @Donald Martin yes, I must USE MY FEEEELLLLLINGGSSS. I think nowadays we all must use more of our hatred. Its destiny. Its inevitable. You know, Star Wars spiritual philosophy actually teaches you a lot of things.

      catsintexas but now realize that no matter what , the courts will decide the issue and the rest of America should get on with their lives. Destroying your own life because you are angry is ludicrous .Destroying other people’s lives because you are angry is evil .

    Pretty sure more people showed up tonight, than on Trump’s inauguration.

    • @Al Bundy lmao, let’s not pretend you have a job, champ. The closest you’ve been to having a job is standing behind a hole in the wall giving hand “jobs” to strangers

    • @Al Bundy If you were telling the truth, which you never do, it’d be illegal to fire by skin colior. Just like it is illegal for me to baseball bat you for being a bigot. But I want to. BADLY.

    • @kmlckd hey twat….i own a company. what about you turd lover?

    At what point do these “demonstrations” become counter-productive? Nobody even thinks that the protestations are “pure” anymore. They are being hi-jacked by people whose agenda has got nothing to do with Police reform. T.V. station’s are trying to keep focused on the protesters, but the whole thing is drifting towards spectacle.

    • Thermography | June 1, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      It is now just about law and order due to the violent approach. Who died again?…hope you get my point, stay safe.

    The police should apologize and make a public video. Let’s bring our people in cities together and do the right thing. God bless America

    • Grover Baker | June 1, 2020 at 8:43 AM | Reply

      Amen brother! This must stop and truth exposed..the guilty should turn themselves in!! To do what’s right..God bless

    • like the Sheriff that took off his riot gear and joined a march for Mr. Floyd. that was even better than an apology.

    This situation escalated from level 1 to 100 in one week.

    • @Jina Ringhofer trump is one of the great american presidents you idiots have been infected with mass hysteria. You hate america and will not accept that you lost an election

    • Mrs Neanderthug My mistake thanks for correcting me

    • Maya L How does losing the popular vote by 3 million and still winning the presidency constitute a “free and fair” election? The electoral college is BS they do not represent the People and are subject to bribery and corruption.

    • @Kwelar the electoral college is the only thing that keeps the country together.

    • @Kwelar the economy represents the country as a whole not just major cities

  9. Wow! It is Hongkong once again!
    The protest virus has descended on the White House.
    Trump has brought back the Virus, just like Covid 19!

      The Country has been in debt for a long time. Long before Trump has been president. I would recommend reading a book sometime to get educated on economics. All the destruction of these buildings and police cars are just going to raise taxes even more. The rioters who damaged properties and are living on government welfare checks probably don’t care as much because they don’t pay taxes in the first place. But the middle class will be paying for all the damages in the form of taxes. Thank you, Violent rioters!

      Bankrupt 6 times doesnt mean he’s bad at amking money. It means he’s ripping Americans off. He’s supposed to win by doing the right thing, Not cheating his whole way through. And we all have to follow the law why doesn’t he? He wasn’t really bankrupt. He’s a criminal. I want him cuffed.

      @Donald Martin a bunch of regular people and one American president worse than all. Its a shame he’s taken our whole country to new lows 😔

      To a hammer, every flat surface has a nail.

    • @El Cruzer55 no. Its media and crazy sjw culture pitting people agsinst eachother. Trump is just a sympton of that. I m dutch. Even in myown country ihave to hear daily that i amprivilige white. I m evil. I amracist. The medis iscreating this ideology.

      @joseph l
      If people are simple enough to form opinions basedon what the media says its because they want to. The airways can be a vast echo chamber for those that only want their beliefs validated. That seems to be 90% of the You Tube posters on both sides.

    • @El Cruzer55 cruzer..its 2020..i am now a racist by definition because i am white. I have” white privilige” in my own country. I am evil. And i am a man. Its the worst of the worsest nowadays.

    • @Jan Bracewell you are a special kind of stupid.

    This is about Justice never equal for citizens! Hold the Banks Responsible! Mr. Prez
    Speak to a destroyed Nation! Sthu about how great you are and Israel. Please just move there!!!!!!!

    • that’s the problem. These Israel religious fanatics who have overwhelming control in our GOVs and our private sector. They are playing both sides of our politics like a Fidel and it’s gotta be stopped. No one group of people should have this kind of power over America especially when its done strategically and decisively. They own FOX and CNN they run Hollywood and what is on our TVS and even our computer monitors. They run a bank they call federal but it’s privately owned. Thy use lawyers to subvert and upend our constitution. This is an occupation and it needs to be called out and routed out without violence and by all legal means. Our police are being trained like the military in Israel and Israel gets paid big tax dollars which defeats the whole purpose of Posse Comitatus..why put the military on our streets when they can consolidate and federally mandate under the color of law a militarized police state. Watch the video of Kelly Thomas a white vagrant .. We shouldn’t be talking about race in America that’s how they divide us. Ultimately Floyd and Thomas were Americans murdered by a brutal totalitarian form of an unconstitutional police apparatus which is now federalized through technology. That’s another issue of technology. smh! The system has weaponized and profits from Social justice issues to a point that it now is tearing our country apart. A nation infiltrated and run by an eneemy from within cannot survive for long. the NWO is treason wether HW Bush says it or Bill Clinton says it.

      Technically, Trump has been draining the swamp and untethering everything the Democratic Party has tried to establish to drive this country into the ground. The enemy is fighting back against Trump because they want to stay in their corruption.

      You are the enemy…. you’re the problem with this country. You’re the evil corrupting everything.

    • David Shaughnessy | June 1, 2020 at 6:19 PM | Reply

      @Kenny Hill The soldiers who side with their own people will have enough firepower to fight back, trust me. My state alone has enough manpower to do serious damage.

    • then it was immediately followed by a little thing called “reign of terror”. that’s the left’s idea of “justice”.

    • @u wot m8 – And tRumpf’s plan to, “Release the dogs and incredible military firepower”, on protesters exercising their First Amendment rights, is the rethugniCONS idea of justice, I suppose?

    • @Susan Kay burning down buildings, assaulting people and blocking traffic aren’t protected by the first amendment. did the television not explain that to you, couch zombie?

    When people were protesting for being locked in their homes y’all didn’t do anything but when they protest for police brutality you do this. it’s disappointing

      @Cathy Elliott I didn’t say you or white people though. People are always assuming. I commented on the video so I’m talking about the news reporters, Police, Trump and etc.

    • are you just ignoring the fact that looters are breaking into stores all over the country, beating their fellow citizens on the streets, and destroying small businesses? i guess the police should just sit back and let it happen? these protests arent about justice, they are about causing destruction and chaos. stay ignorant and biased.
