    If you support Trump in this you do not support the US.

      Margaret Nicol That’s not what I said at all! She’s not a doctor! Your making up false titles. This is something else.

      @NeoGeographer Wolf ultimately returned to Oxford, completing her Doctor of Philosophy degree, She’s a doctor! Now unless you are lonely because no-one else is talking to you – please go away. I have no patience with deliberate ignorance or stupidity.

      Margaret Nicol Wow must be a pretty worthless degree that she spent thousands of dollars on. I tried my best to inform you, an absolute moron when it comes to history, but your a hard nut to crack, and won’t listen to simple logic and facts. Hope you find your brain.

      @MR DEW Yes if the option is a Crazy man, whose been in politics 3 years and had done everything WRONG.

    • Get Trump* out of our White House! | August 1, 2020 at 10:10 PM | Reply

      @MR DEW Dewd!!!! I am still waiting for your defense of Trump’s predatory nature towards young girls that I factually pointed out to you…….why have you gone back to your bunker, boy?

    The Republican party has turned into spineless jellyfish.

      this coming from a party whose Governors and Mayors allow rioters to take over city streets LOL

    • Mr. Precedent | July 30, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

      Alex Hamilton – What’s your solution Alex? Got a plan for how cities should have sent cops in riot gear in to “liberate” their streets, after George Floyd was murdered on camera for us all to see? Would you have preferred civilian and police casualties over property damage?

    • Mr. Precedent | July 30, 2020 at 7:37 PM | Reply

      Alex Hamilton – Did you see any of this chaos and madness under Obama? Do you need to be reminded that this is all happening on Trump’s watch, and that he has proven himself to be equally as inept at dealing with a racial crisis as he has been at dealing with a pandemic? Instead of trying to heal the wounds, and bring Americans together – he has continually thrown gasoline on the fire, and ground salt into the wounds.

    • Tomas Coppinger | July 30, 2020 at 7:42 PM | Reply

      Yeah they have been spinless for years…inbreeding result in you having no spine and a deep mental illness. They are like starving puppies now…whining for food off the table….let them starve.

    • @Alex Hamilton So now if you protest you are called a terrorist, by the act of protest we won our independence, why then do we celebrate the 4th of July? were our forefathers terrorists? What are we to make of armed men who have no identification, no badge or insignia, that can lift a citizen off the street without cause? Does that not seem like something we hear that happens in North Korea, China or Russia ? Forget about party politics my friend, when was it ever ok to do these things in the USA ? If you endorse these actions today, what will you do when they come for you and your family tomorrow?

  3. the republican party has become overrun with scam artists. That’s why they want to run for re-election.

  4. Biden predicted this a couple of months ago. He actually wants to rig an election in the US. This is not Russia mister, we will defend our electoral integrity this time, your Putin tactics won’t work, we are voting you out

  5. Things will get worse as Trump becomes increasingly desperate to secure a second term.

    • From what we have Witnessed so far and from what we have been Warned of by those that know the true depth of his bottomles Pit of Evil and darkness the though of Worst should frighten us all all beyond the Imagination of Normalcy. . Voting is the only weapon we have left to defeat this Monster. 💙.

      Trump has always been evil but the GOP were voted in based on their sound principles to protect the people. It was a lie

  6. Why do Republicans want to get reelected? Follow the money. It’s that simple.

  7. Trump wants to delay the election because of the virus but won’t delay school openings.

    • Real Talk76 That psychopath doesn’t care about harming kids or families.

    • Real Talk76 Kids can’t vote.Canada.

    • Justin Miller Do you always believe this morons noise?Canada.

    • @Rich Greene kids can spread the virus and make a deadly situation even deadlier. Trump is allegedly worried about voters being safe and willing to postpone a constitutionally mandated election date to secure more favorable results but not willing to protect kids and their communities in the same context. You don’t need a license to diagnose his pathology.

    • Go figure . . . . .

  8. GOP is full of hate for American people.

    • @Ralph Boyd Democrat Mayors are in charge of policing their cities,Goober.

    • Fake news is melting your poor brain. Most Republicans love our country. Did you watch the full Barr hearings? Wanna see what kind of traitors Dems are go watch the hearings.

    • @jeck jeck Federal law enforcement officers you meant to say.

    • @Mox Avenger
      Terrorist by any other name is still a terrorist. Things were calming down before they arrived. Yet another GOP move to destroy United States.

    • @David Eby
      Trump is President it’s his failure.

    Kids can go to school, but we can’t vote? Find the mistake…

  11. Republican Party was trap the day they endorse Trump.

    • Wonder Wonderful | July 31, 2020 at 9:33 PM | Reply

      That’s no excuse they had the opportunity to impeach Trump and wouldn’t, bc they are greedy too!

    “this is a moral test”==does not apply to the gop, they have abandoned morality and honor in favor of cultism

    • william carter | July 30, 2020 at 9:32 PM | Reply

      Lincoln had morals they are not the party of Lincoln and they never were 🖕🏿🖕🏿🤮🤮🤮

    • What morals? The GOP gave their souls to the devil a long time ago. The only thing donnie did was manifest that which was already a part of the conservative mantra. Trump’s singular example of buffoonery will last decades. There’s no coming back from this. The joke will be IF Anyone tries to compare any candidate NOT a Republican is: Remember Trump. Over and out!!

    • Athena Kebano | July 31, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

      This GOP NEVER had morality! They’re only hiding behind those who have it; while secretly manipulating the voting process with all sorts of voters suppression! We’re just seeing it more clearly now because of crazy Trump!

    Trump is not there for the people he is there for himself because he knows once he’s out he is going to jail.

  14. Peter Cousins | July 30, 2020 at 7:55 PM | Reply

    So you can have a campaign rally but you cannot vote? Total hypocrisy.

    • That is Trump logic . . . gotta love it, or hate it, or despise it, or fear it, or run from it as fast as you can. Dump Trump in November. Dump Trump.

  15. It’s beyond outrageous. He will force children and adults back to a fake normal by withholding aid, even for our schools, while a deadly pandemic is raging but say maybe it’s so bad we have to postpone the election.

    The Ghost of Impeachment Past has arrived to haunt the Repugnant Party.

  17. “You lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” They all did this to themselves. Poor, poor Republican sycophants.

  18. Barbara Roberts | July 30, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

    The trump conservatives should just start calling themselves “The National Enquirer party” because that is exactly how they behave and the things they say…like constant made up conspiracy theories, lies, hearsay and gossip galore! Fake facts!

  19. *Everything Trump says is a danger to US. Let’s end this nightmare on November 3rd. Wear a Mask and VOTE HIM OUT.*

    “Donald Trump is a moral test for the Republican Congressmen.”
