  1. Riot? He doesn’t want a riot
    He wants a civilian war. Say it!!
    Stop being cute. This man is seriously dangerous

    • Wendell Ellis Edwards sorry no such thing as souls, fairies, demons witches, leprechauns, God’s, angels. If you believe that fairytale we don’t need your comments here.

      This is NOT just about a ‘virus’…this is ALL about an attempt to reconstruct the western nations into GLOBALIST nightmare NWO, by copying the China blueprint of totalitarian government.
      B.Gates bought unprecedented influence in the >>WHO with huge donations, becoming both spokesperson and adviser on pandemics/vaccinations [having NO medical background]. He suddenly runs the show, instructing governments to go into lockdown/economic meltdown…then he unveils his pet-project ID2020 mass bio-microchipping with planned injected IMMUNITY PASSPORTS and vaccinations – to be produced in HIS pharma-Labs. Now we’re being told that our ONLY way out of imminent economic recession and lockdown, is to have IMMUNITY PASSPORTS and vaccinations [how convenient]. Oddly, also in 2020 >> G5 is activated, a tech-grid that uses facial-recognition cameras and digital-tracking, currently used in China as a big-brother surveillance-system to track/monitor the population. China has integrated the G5 network into its oppressive internal security police-state. There are facial-recognition cameras on streets, buildings, stations, public transport, food-take-aways [I kid you not] and the state tracks all travel/movement of citizens via G5. Also, G5 has replaced cash there and uses ‘digital currency’ so the state can control/restrict/stop your ability to financially function in society, governments can punish any dissent by cutting-off their digital money by simply pressing a button. We in the west are being conditioned to comply with this China-model >> digital currency and a bio-chipped [immunity passport] and vaccinated population, which will be tracked by G5. This Covid-crisis is the big-bad-wolf that’s being used to scare the sheep and we are being herded into the ‘Elites’ dystopian New world Order.
      ..A PRISON-SOCIETY . Does any critically thinking person believe the introduction of ID2020 /G5 and these almost martial-law scale lockdowns are all coincidental? Just check out this information and prepare for a freedom-less future >> bio-chipped/mandatory vaccinations and all tracked by G5, being total dependent on the states digital currency system.

    • ERNEST MARTEL all thanks to trump …..

    • Mario Lopez there are militia groups all over this country that would love it if a civil war was started, and they have said it over and over again. Oath Keepers are one. Do your research.

    • Do you mean like the Antifa Soros backed scum that actually do riot? No didn’t think so.

    • Agree 💯😎

      Cuomo is his favorite punching bag… and ironically enough, he has done the most testing. Both in total tests and in testing per capita.

    • Jason McElholum | April 18, 2020 at 12:29 PM | Reply

      A very valid observation. Logical thinking and coherent, deliberate speech patterns upset him. There is no question that, if he were able to, he would have fired the vast majority of Governors by now because they were ‘never trumpers and frankly did a terrible job’.

    • Jim Truscott | April 21, 2020 at 9:43 PM | Reply

      John Traylor Definitely one of the most stupidly arrogant statements I’ve ever heard. What’s scary is that there are millions of individuals who everyday act with exactly the same condescension and they are always liberals who think they are Oh ,so smart ! I called you out and I showed that your various statements are, to be blunt, risibly dumb, dumb, dumb. Not a thing you said makes any sense… for example,your use of “ anarchy” shows that you don’t even know what the word means,politically or otherwise. And then at one point you say”Ofcourse inciting anarchy is a crime”. If you knew ,simply what the word means , you would never say”Of course…”. There is no “ of course “ about anything you say. It’s all senseless… literally, without sense. Explain what you mean by” Inciting anarchy “… I guarantee you can’t say what those words mean.

  6. Trump needs to be charged with Sedition. He is a clear and present danger to this country.

    • @Chelle Chelle hey I respect that , I just don’t think the whole one world , liberal thing is not going to go over very well anymore .

    • @MAXX4955 not for Trump but I have no fear of anything he says , I don’t feel threatened by him or his policies .

    • @violentauntieI’m not for Trump but I am against liberals .

      @Steven Katz A liberal means anyone who is for freedom… it is literally what the word means, anyone not a liberal in the Western world is a fascist, not being a liberal is against the constitution of the USA, not being a liberal means you are a traitor to all the ideals of America.

  7. Vote him out. If people follow him, we will lose our love ones

  8. Why doesn’t Trump go out and protest? Oh that’s right he’s got bone spurs.

      @Jim Truscott Antifa is a real serious threat for the us democracy and for all us citizens! LOL! Ur kiddin me, don´t u? If not: Stop puffing a small group of left-wing political activists to a national danger! btw let me ask you one question i want to ask for a while: what´s wrong with “liberals”? im german, so i do not know what americans mean when they talking about “liberals”. Everybody wants to have freedom, everybody wants less state governance, less bureaucracy and more resident-friendly
      establishments, etc. thats what the social political term “liberal” stands for in europe.briefly summarized. Whats so bad about this issue being or thinking liberal? can u explain, plz.

    • optimat prime I can’t figure out what you’re talking about.

    Personally, if those people want to be liberated, they should sign an agreement that if they get sick they won’t seek medical help – they will just take care of themselves!

  12. Only one word can describe Trump: DISGUSTING.

    • Trevlind Ramquez Yes I have, but lately she has not been pulling away from his hand. I read something that was meant to be funny that he has threatened her with deportation, but knowing that twisted little self absorbed mind of his, I really have to wonder now. LOL!

      By tweeting LIBERATE in all caps, as a message to his zombie Kool-aid drinking kkkult followers, Trump sends for the first time a clear message: that “liberation” means certain death during the Global Pandemic. After all he doesn’t need them voting for him to hack democracy again. He has total autocracy now. “Sad, baby” as Fred Trump used to say to his failed son!

    • Wayne Brady 2 agreed, he reminds me of a child who has never been taught how to act right

  17. Trump— “They seem to be protesters who like me”. This sums up the thought process of a 6 year old.

    • @Soapandwater6 Did you like Hillary who allowed our ambassador die because of politics? Did it matter to you that she lied for 6 weeks even to the family of the ambassador? Did it matter to you that she accepted the questions that she would be asked in her debate with Bernie?

      @alan wolcik Are you trying to say that 2 wrongs make a right? Whatever Hillary has done doesn’t justify #45’s flaws and immoral actions. And Hillary is a SANE person.
