    ANOTHER super spreader event!! Sad and pathetic!

  3. the temper tantrum coalition

  4. All the most uneducated people from the lowest educated states descending on the most educated state. Let them do their thing… idiots.

    It will cost an immense amount of police work. Trump should be held accountable for paying every single hour

  6. Trump’s clearly attempting to instigate some serious chaos in the hopes of getting what he wants.

      Trump can’t change the election. He is just trying to get as much as attention as he can for his “cause”. His cause? – Get as much money from a bunch of suckers as he can.

      Simgor2, In a February 2014 interview Trump said America wouldn’t get right until there were rioting in the streets. He’s been encouraging this since before the election. His supporters are so brainwashed that they can’t see how he’s trying to use them. I don’t understand how they can be so gullible.

    Hospitals are already overwhelmed so there won’t be any beds or ventilators for any of these people. Good luck with that.

      Yes I just seen where ambulances have been told not to transport anyone who the believe will die or who’s heart has already stopped not t even try and save them

  8. Honestly? I hope these yahoos DO start some sh*t, so the cops have an excuse to really take them to the ground.

      Friend or foe, melee, mayhem, disorder happening here CAN spread thoughout the country. All trump needs is for his ‘stains to create enough chaos to try to invoke.
      That’s why it is tomorrow instead of the 20th after his term expires
      The good news is this – That guy and the new guy don’t work for the President, they work for Congress. The current SaA has the same police power as the Chief of the USCP. They have jurisdiction over 200 square blocks surrounding Congress – the fly in the ointment is the DC Guard withh 14 days to expiration. I won’t go into details but the DC guard can’t just fall in behind the USCP with a sitting president and that means the 82nd Airborne won’t necessarily hang back to defend the DC Zone from invaders while the USCP and DC Guard mop up the melee. It’s going to spill over if it goes off and that’s not a coincidence

    • @jerry bangwaller Nothing this President does can change the fact that a new President will be sworn in at noon on the 20th. Trump doesn’t have to allow this to happen, nor can he prevent it from happening – he has no choice in the matter, “emergency” or no “emergency”.

    • “jerry bangwaller” is a suspiciously new and empty YouTube account – started December 14, 2020. Put on “ignore”.

  9. He must purchase an adult diaper

  10. An orange Nuremberg rally during a pandemic with maskless Karens crammed up together…yikes! A 10-foot pole with common sense wouldn’t attend that.

  11. Trump needs arresting for inciting violence cuff him.

  12. The ironic PB’s. They demand their Rights be protected, while tearing down others Rights.

  13. These guys wearing their tactical gear , and tarrio with his four stars, what could they be “compensating” for? HHMMMN? Something very tiny?

    • I think they look very sweet in their cosplay outfits. If they could sing, they could be the next Village People.

    • Yet they call those on the left radical. Don’t see the left running around with guns threatening people. If that what they think is radical? Trying to protect peacefully? I guess that would be radical to a bunch of ignorant, racist, Trump loving gun nuts.

  14. Just stay home let them have at it they are brain washed.

    It doesn’t matter what you are protesting, when destruction starts, or others are threatened, you are in the wrong.

  16. When they start using the military to point guns at you for disagreeing with them you know it’s only a matter of time before they start killing you for disagreeing with them.

  17. trump clearly wants his minions to wreck the town … after he’s safely tucked away in his bunker.

    • Maggie Hubbard | January 5, 2021 at 5:14 PM | Reply

      Yes exactly I have seen people saying if trump doesn’t win tomorrow then the what happened in Tennessee will happen there but even bigger and he much worse. It’s so disgusting and disturbing

    • Life is better when I do something. | January 5, 2021 at 6:50 PM | Reply

      @Maggie Hubbard Why we have cops and National Guard. Mayor will shut the town down.

    • Maggie Hubbard | January 5, 2021 at 6:55 PM | Reply

      @Life is better when I do something. yes they already announced it

    • Leon Armstrong | January 5, 2021 at 11:27 PM | Reply

      @Maggie Hubbard What the???

      Win tomorrow???

      Trump already lost the election! As for tomorrow it’s just a formality to count all the certified votes that Biden has already won. Simple as that!

  18. Trump will have fled abroad, his followers’ greenbacks in hand.
