      Putins man brought and paid for. Putin knows he can’t shame trump, he also knows that Trump is very greedy.

    • Cori MacNaughton | September 7, 2020 at 10:50 AM | Reply

      #traitortrump will also have a rude awakening if he loses and tries to escape prosecution by turning to Putin: Putin has a long history of disappearing those who are no longer “useful,” and I doubt that he’d think twice about dispatching this criminally negligent Grifter-in-Chief.

  7. Trump is corruption on steroids. Nixon’s ghost can finally rest in peace, for Nixon is no longer the most corrupt president in American history. Trump’s face belongs on the Mt Rushmore of corruption….all by itself. We have an overt criminal in the Oval Office, operating in the open for the world to see. At this point, they should just surround the entire White House with yellow police tape, and declare the whole thing a crime scene.

    Save America!! Decision 2020!!💙

    Trump vs America, who’s side are you on?

  8. And you Bunker Boy will go down in history as the worst President ever.

      j welsh Typical Trump stooge trying to ignore the inconvenient facts, that the orange man is a psychopath destroying America.

    • To save America name and face. Its good to wipe up the president title and have the history documentad as the criminer White House hijacking incident during 2016-2020.

    • Cori MacNaughton | September 7, 2020 at 10:48 AM | Reply

      William Barr has gone from being a highly respected attorney to throwing out his oath of office and, instead of acting as the top attorney for the people of America, to being #traitortrump’s personal attorney, protector, and lapdog.

      He deserves life in prison right alongside #traitortrump and the rest of his criminally complicit enablers.

      I don’t even want to believe a 2nd term of Jim Jones 2.0 is a possibility. It’s too scary to try and imagine what 2024 America will be like as a FAILED STATE and the newest pariah nation.

  9. There’s no way Barr’s going down as the greatest anything after working for Trump.

  10. Get your ballot on time, complete it on time, sign your ballot, take a picture of your completed ballot and mail your ballot on time.
    Biden-Harris are not perfect. However, they would not bankrupt our democracy and bury more of our citizens. Vote blue on November 3rd, 2020.

    • @C 55 Good for you. There are citizens in the US who don’t live your luxurious life. Some may be neighbors you scorn so readily for their limitations and choices.
      There are a dozen or more ways to skin the voting cat and protect one’s franchise with simple methods. Yours works for you. How nice. Your method is a method but it is not the only method. Get some humility. You missed that character trait as a child.

      @C 55 And I will wear my anti rumpo shirt when I do in my very republican area.

  11. A vote for Trump is a vote for Putin.

    • More like a VOTE FOR the grave

      Those cult-like blind fools that STILL support imbecile Trumputin are whistling past the graveyard – probably one where a few COVID casualties are buried thanks to bungling buffoon Jim Jones 2.0. I can’t even believe we are dealing w this Twilight Zone nightmare of a WH!

  12. The most corrupt president EVER.

  13. Barr will go down as the greatest sycophant in history

  14. William Barr’s extremism is worthy of Nazi Germany.

      And unworthy of America, just like his boss.

    • @meanderer121 Trust me, I am terrified. I read he started a youth training camp too. It’s gotten pretty far, very quickly. He’s taken control of, or made irrelevant, almost everything in govt, including congress, the cdc, the postal service, the media…too many to name. He foments hatred at particular groups, causing division just like in Germany. Hopefully, he hasn’t completely destroyed elections. And I can’t help thinking those that still support him are going to be the neighbors turning us in one day. So yeah, I’m with you, and I am terrified.

      @Cheshire Kitten Precisely.
      #traitortrump, Barr, McConnell, Graham, and ALL the rest of these criminally complicit enablers, as well as Kushner and #traitortrump’s three eldest grifter progeny, deserve and HAVE EARNED life in prison, without possibility of parole.
      Crimes against humanity is just the tip of the iceberg for this criminally negligent Grifter-in-Chief and his sycophants.

    • Cori MacNaughton | September 7, 2020 at 11:09 AM | Reply

      @meanderer121 Right there with you. I’m 61, and though I’ve been warning since my teen years that yes, it CAN happen here, I had NO earthly idea how truly fragile our democratic republic is, nor how remarkably FAST it could be taken down by a sociopathic president, especially if an entire party tosses out their oaths of office to back him, as the Republicans so willingly have.

      I could also never have predicted that Mitt Romney, of all people, would turn out to be the sole Republican senator with honor, morals, and a functioning spine.

      We are truly living the Chinese curse, as these are VERY interesting times, not to mention scary and perilous.

      But Glenn Kirchner has succeeded in giving me back my hope that justive WILL be served. Check out his YouTube videos and his podcast, “Justice Matters,” if unfamiliar.

      I think Kirchner would be the best choice for Attorney General to replace the criminal Barr. He and Kamala would be a formidable team in reinvigorating the Justice Department; not to mention indicting, arresting, and prosecuting this entire band of American traitors.

  15. These guys need to be brought up on charges of Treason

  16. This whole administration is a joke and they’re playing with all of our lives

  17. This president IS the argument for Democrats to at least double the budget for education!!

  19. When Laura Igraham has to help you color inside the lines… you know you’ve lost what was left of your mind.

    • AWESOME Comment! BRAVO!

    • As Racist as Ingraham is,
      Even She, KNOWS HOW FKED UP TRUMP IS, and I’m sure after that Revealing Interview, Driving home, she was Thinking about it.
      So busy with Putting out Multiple Brush fires 🔥 while Trump is Just Yakking away 🙄

      Is Nancy Pelosi at the salon any better. You Americans and your politics

    • that was hilarious…shadow men? OMG…and his repeating a facebook fake thing from June 1st that supposedly happened last week? OMG… But he did NOT have mini strokes in November (though no on had said he did, so…?)

    • @Todd Toure she was interviewing for press secretary. she said so.

    Glad he’s saying “followers,” which is more accurate than “supporters,” as it is an authoritarian cult.

      Where is sen.Lindsey Graham?it’s surprising that he’s not defending this Dictator that he and Moscow Mitch helped created. Lindsey,Americans know you very well and they know you are silent because you want to be re-elected for the senate but unfortunately you are going to be kicked out next November.

    • they are so deeply brainwashed that is impossible for them to reach the right conclusion, but one thing they understand and he is absolutely right about that 4:29 “… and the only thing they understand is defeat…”. they’ll follow the insane clown until the end. No doubt the insane clown and his followers will cause alot of damage, before they go down. it’s unavoidable. it is heartbreaking (tragedy) that they are so many, but on positive side there are enough decent people in this country, so they can be defeated. The decent people in this country can not stand on the sidelines in this moment, simply because we care about the next generations.

    • Truthfully speaking, so very accurate!!!

      More than a few of us have been calling comrade Trumputin ‘Jim Jones 2.0’ for a long time, and his brainwashed morons AKA ‘cult 45’ even longer.
