  1. As a US Veteran and a husband of a US Veteran, this is only a confirmation after watching Trumps actions for the last 4 years.
    It is perfectly inline with his character (or lack of). It is inline with his actions in Syria, in Ukraine, his actions concerning Russia, his actions on June 1st.
    The idea of service before self is foreign to him, to the detriment of our Nation.
    It is one more on the litany of evidence showing Trump’s utter failure as a leader and supports his being unfit for office.
    I am repulsed by Trump because of the Values taught to me in Service. I hold him to those standards, and they show him to be weak and lacking.

    • @Don Hardcastle Respectfully Sir, it was watching Trumps actions and listening to his speeches which lead to my conclusions.
      I’m not interested in parroting media outlets, I simply stated my own observations.
      After 4 year, I am only left with Trump and his utter failure in leadership and his abject ignorance of responsibility to this Nation

      @Dusk194 if you knew of the legislation he has passed, you wouldn’t be so reluctant kiddo…
      But to each their own!
      Stay lit friend!!!

    • Character! U said it. Even The Lord Jesus said, by their fruits u shall know them. And the Lord was not just talking about religious leaders either. Also note Mr Trump is kind of like the antichrist will be in the last 31/2 years of the tribulation period, he will magnify himself above all, Trump loves to brag on himself and to boost in his so called achievements.

    Bone Spurs, a five time draft dodger, who knows nothing about the military and was too scared to serve, now thinks he can denigrate the men and women of the armed forces because he is the commander in chief. This pathetic fool knows no bounds.

  3. And the next part of Donald’s brilliant campaign strategy is to call orphans losers for not having parents.

  4. Those people were and are still patriots not like Mr Bone spurs

  5. I Don’t Feel Safe In My Home and It’s Not Because of BLM or Covid.

    • @Kay Luv Well, he’s given the racists permission to come out of hiding. Once he received the electoral college vote, people went crazy with their racism. I read reports of them yelling at Latinx families to go back to Mexico. Little did the dummies know that the families they were trying to intimidate were American citizens.

      The man is the plague.

    • Beware of the extreme right wingers

    • Todd Daniel I’m holding my ground. In this country doesn’t have time for any bs. It needs to stop. Now! The Games Need to Stop.

    • @Kim BStrong agree these are scary times, stay safe and stay strong and let’s how this president doesn’t get us in a race or civil war, seems to be trying

    • Todd Daniel vote🇺🇸✌🏼🍀

  6. He insults Us Every Day When He Says Everything Is Great and It’s Gonna Be Great and We’re lined Up to Be Slaughtered.

    • Yes you’re right, he is the leader of a death cult.

    • Lee Anderson Well I Hope They are Proud because, I Don’t think They know what there signed up for but, they will find out when he no longer needs their vote.

    • You’re so right! People are right now pretending that everything is back to normal; that COVID-19 is no longer a threat. Yet, people are still contracting it and are still dying from it. Herman Cain’s death should have been a cautionary tale. But the anti-maskers are more prevalent than ever. People in public places have to be admonished to practice social distancing. College students still partied like it was 1999 when they returned to college campuses – resulting in the colleges and universities having to cancel in-person classes. As stupid as tRump has shown himself to be, people (some of whom are supposed to be smart or intelligent) still follow his lead. There is no accounting for the stupidity of tRump’s cult/herd!

    • Fancy Brooks All because no one wants to pay higher taxes. Well unfortunately we bear the burden of the national debt. It’s Greed.

  7. I used to hate, in my 20s and 30s, what I called “army guys”, because they always got the girl, where I didn’t. But I wised up. You know who my favorite member of our government is, any level? Tammy Duckworth. She’s my hero; she went above and beyond to serve our country–and so did everyone else who ever donned a uniform. I salute you. Welcome home.

  8. “He is clearly sick, he is clearly ill” and I like the last word “Mary Trump is right” and rightly so. Eyes are been opened to the traitor and the confederate president in the white house.

  9. I salute you as a fellow veteran.
    Biden/ Harris 2020

  10. Don’t be sad for 45 ; be sad for the people of america

  11. before you vote for Congress, ask if that person supported or was silent
    while Trump was destroying our Democracy. VOTE!!!

  12. There’s a traitor in The White House. All gave some. Some gave all. Trump gave nothing. To quote Gold Star Father Khizr Khan, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

    • Corey Ham Including Lindsey Graham, a military retiree.

    • Remember Helsinki. They mercilessly hammered Hillary Clinton about Benghazi, but yet gave tRump a pass for his treachery at Helsinki. And now we know his true feelings about our war dead! Disgraceful!

    • @Fancy Brooks There are those of us who’ve known for some time, from just listening AND watching.
      ‘See, the “walk” has to match the “talk”, and his hasn’t matched since even before his daddy’s money and deferments from Vietnam.
      There are people in Atlantic City who worked in his casino, still waiting for owed salaries that he “stiffed” them on.
      This incident is just more proof for those who will open their eyes.

    • endofthetrail for sure

    • @Karen Smith Copy that.

  13. My Dad foughtWW2 so I could have freedom,He’s my HERO.Gone back to be with the Lord now. God bless our soldier.Thank you, you are all hero’s.

  14. Honestly, if you just realized he’s a man of no character, I guess I can say ‘welcome to the club’ but… He’s been a red flag since the days in that God awful reality TV show he hosted. To me, the fact that so many Americans really thought a reality TV star could be a commander-in-chief, tells about the actual state of mind our country is in. We are losers. Losers for choosing that ball of fat to run our great country, and he’s running it straight into the ground.

    • This is what racism gets you! Those racists thought that if a Black man (or half Black, anyway) could do it, then anybody could do it. Now, we all see (or at least we all SHOULD see)! Racism is based on a false premise. To dismiss all people of a certain race based on skin color alone as being “less than” is insanity personified!

    • Here is the thing, the loser of the popular vote in 2016. He is way worse than I ever could have dreamed. Trump is far worse than Nixon. A lot of our fellow Americans got conned. Our education system is a failure.

    • You may call yourself a looser I voted for HILLARY CLINTON, NOT 45 THE LOOSERS ARE THOSE WHO VOTED FOR HIM ONCE and are planning to do it again.

    • Mr. Gold – The people at “Unkind T.V.” know the true story……

  15. The same man who said McCain is a looser because he got captured.?.

  16. I still can’t get my head around the fact that we elected a draft dodger as president. As a Vietnam veteran myself, I’m disgusted.

    • Harry Wehrman it’s disheartening for a draft dodger to be president, that’s for sure. PLUS. All his other faults, like doing a rotten job on the Pandemic. People are in fear of losing their homes all over the USA, due to joblessness. And who knows if children are safe if they go back to school. I would not let my kids go to school under these conditions.

    • 8alot4t do you mean Truman?

    • So vote him out, Harry.

    • Harry Wehrman it’s very disconcerting. I agree with you, and Trump has so many other faults, not protecting people from the virus. And the CONSTANT lying 🤥. Please vote blue. Thanks 🙏🏻

    • What is beyond comprehension is how so many of our military .. knowing what This VILE piece of garbage is saying about them, STILL support him !.. WHY ??? !!!

  17. the suckers, are the senators who chose not to impeach the orange man

    Just tired of the drama queen president.

  19. The entire GOP needs to pay a heavy political price for allowing Trump to remain unchecked.

      He is checked, but there has been no action taken.

    • kristabella222 | September 4, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      Yes, they should all be voted out of office. That they would let this lying pos take over their party is proof of the worse kind of corruption. They will literally follow anyone, no matter how dangerous to the country, if it means they get what they want.

    • And the left wing and progressives need to be publicly flogged and shamed in the town square. Losers, ALL!!

      @Dan Chanquin Explain for what the Democrats “will pay the price”! Don´t you know the Republicans are the majority in Congress? The Democrats have put forward 400 bills to congress, all of them with the purpose of making the life for all people better, protection of the environment, universal health care and much, much more. All these bills have been rejected by the ultra conservative, the reminiscent of the medieval, mean, greedy Mitch McConnel, who is the leader of the Republicans in the Senate. What, according to you, should the democrats have done and that you are missing? They have tried, but have been rejected. So once again I ask you: Explain your accusation against the Democrats. Do you read news, watch any other media than Fox and the lying clowns there and other far right media that are a propaganda machine for fascism, hate, racism, name-callings, conspiracies, corruption, treason, accusations and lies which are on Donald´s agenda. He has nothing but that on his agenda. Waiting with eager for your response.Your malicious joy is disgusting, vulgar and primitive.

  20. So let me get this straight: Trump is disrespecting American troops living today, but defending statutes of long dead Confederate generals?
