    Don won’t call off the dogs because that’s not his “style.” Also, most of his dogs are “rabid mongrels.” Vote ByeDon!

  4. A desperate t’rump is truly a sad pathetic t’rump.

  5. Hate crimes increase in the US since Trump’s election


    July 22, 2019

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a prominent U.S. civil rights group said it has identified 900 incidents of harassment following Trump’s election to the presidency. SPLC outlines that Trump’s rhetoric and actions have affected U.S. society.

    The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to condemn President Trump’s racist tweets against 4 Democratic congresswomen.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib have been critical of Trump’s harsh immigration policies. Trump tweeted on Sunday that the four congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

    Before the vote, Representative John Lewis, a democrat and civil rights leader, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr in the 60s, called on members of Congress to do “the right thing” and condemn the president’s words.

    “The world is watching. They are shocked and dismayed because it seems we have lost our way as a proud and dignified people,” 79-year-old Lewis said.

    “I know racism when I see it. I know racism when I feel it. And it has no place in the highest levels of our government,” Lewis added.

    The measure, the first House rebuke of a president in more than 100 years, passed by 240 to 187, after one of the most polarizing disputes the floor has witnessed in recent times.

    Raucous crowds chanted “Send her back!” as Trump held his first campaign rally since announcing his 2020 re-election bid.

    “I am where I belong, at the people’s house and you’re just gonna have to deal!” Ilhan Omar tweeted, alongside a photo of her presiding over the House chamber.

    The US representative was welcomed by a crowd of people at the airport with cheers and support as she returns to Minnesota on Thursday.

    “We’ve heard it before throughout our history, but it has no place in America in 2019,” former Vice-President Joe Biden tweeted. “It’s clear that Donald Trump is trying to divide us by race and gender. It’s immortal.”

    He praised immigrants as an example of “what makes America great,” while adding: “Donald Trump thinks our nation’s great diversity makes us weak – because he has no idea what makes us great.”

  6. They shouldn’t have to wait for hours!’

    • I am in New Zealand , I early voted last week , took my ancient mother in her wheelchair . I parked on a P5 zone outside the polling booth , my brother and I helped mother into her chair , went in , all three of us voted and were back in the car before the 5 minutes had elapsed . The main polling day was , as always a Saturday .

    • Most don’t have to. I got my ballot in the mail, filled it out, signed it, and dropped it off at a local drop box. Got a text notification that it was received and counted.

    • It’s how the republican party has always won is they would remove ballot boxes from around poorer areas and put polling stations miles apart. Look at Texas the governor took away drop boxes and only left one per county. Knowing Texas what drop boxes were left they probably went through and tossed away a lot of Democratic ballots. Most of the cheating doesn’t work now because people are sick of this crooked administration and are willing to walk for miles and stand in line all day to vote.

    • @David Sk8er Ah that’s true. I guess it depends on where you’re at. I’m in Cali so it was easier. Although a few days later I found out that the GOP had been setting up fake drop boxes in my county and other counties, but luckily I dropped it off at an official one. But yeah, just goes to show how desperate they are.

  7. Comparing trump supporters to dogs is an insult to dogs…

  8. I’d rather be an American than a Trump supporter…..but you can’t be both

  9. vote for inclusion and unity…
    vote for integrity and civility…
    vote for common sense and medical science…
    vote for basic human decency…

  10. It’s NOT a good thing to see people “lined up for hours to vote”. It’s indicative of a big problem with the process,

  11. “A century and a half after Gettysburg, we should consider again what can happen when equal justice is denied and when anger and violence and division are left unchecked,” Biden@ Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

    • @Reg U you misspelled “acquitted” you’re welcome.

    • @Mel Gillham LMOA
      Say’s the ” Grammar Cop”.

    • @Reg U its LMAO there comrade… 😂🤣

    • @Mel Gillham if he’s elected to a second term which i highly doubt he’ll be doubleyl impeached and removed to rikers Island with his fellow pedos and rapists

    • @CmUrC 190 they got nothing but mouth, the first time didnt go well for them. And likely if they try again, they’ll end up in Leavenworth themselves. Heres a clue, they swore an oath, they can be held accountable to the ucmj for that oath. And it wont be simple civilian charges, itll be treason.

  12. It’s the darkest time in the US in decades. Vote them all out.

  13. Tom Ridge makes sense. I bet he’s voting for Joe Biden.

  14. Polls mean nothing absolutley nothing, it matters that you vote but even more important who you vote for.

      The people’s votes? Electoral votes is what will decide, I know it’s stupid, but that is the way it is. Remember HILLARY and Al?

    vote blue all the way to stop the madness

  16. Donnie isnt going to tell them to back off. Go Blue

    I don’t like presidents that encourages his cult to start a civil war if he loses!! BYEDON!!

  18. People with assault rifles at the voting sites should be arrested and sent to prison emediatly

  19. Why didn’t we get rid of the Electoral College? Democracy is one person, one vote. Governors need to ban guns at polling places and state houses. That intimidation is domestic terrorism.

  20. I don’t like a president that encourages the crazies to help suppress votes.
