    1. @Senator Joseph McCarthy What I wrote is the financial crime Trump has committed all his life and people are too dumb to see it.

    2. @david clark
      DrUMPf’s brand is leveraged.
      Whoever is leveraging the brand is using it to launder vice profits.

    3. @Senator Joseph McCarthy

      Tell what you know of the relationship between Ivank Trump, Jared Kushner, Wendi Deng Murdock, and Vladimir Putin.
      Some arrangement?
      This arrangement may explain the cozy relationship between Trump inc Panama and oligarch friends of Putin.
      How many bankruptcies and fly by night failed businesses?

    4. mr weissmann says the ny atty general’s office doesn’t have the authority to investigate or prosecute CRIMES? that’s the stupidest thing i ever heard. ALL 51 attys general have not only the authority but the damned obligation to investigate and prosecute crimes. THAT’S THEIR DAMNED JOB! my god our country is becoming more absurd, ludicrous and crazy by the minute. trump has 50 years OF CRIMES to arrest him on. the statute of limitations doesn’t apply when it protects the predatory actions of life-long criminals. ANY JUDGE can extend those limitations AT WILL!
      is trump EVER going to face responsibility for any of the 1000’s of crimes his committed over the last 40 years? why hasn’t he been arrested for the treason, fraud and profiteering he conducted while in the white house. why haven’t ANY of the GOP been arrested yet for their treason.
      here’s the reality of the law, NO congressman that voted to overturn the election or who has come out to downplay and cover-up the GOP crimes of 1-6 CANNOT participate in the decisions to investigate and prosecute the insurrection. they don’t have the authority to abuse their positions to cover-up their OWN CRIMES! they must recuse themselves or be FORCIBLY recused. THIS IS INSANE! the criminals are being allowed to decide whether or not they should be investigated! THAT’S ILLEGAL!
      OUR COUNTRY SUX! the rich and connected are EXEMPT from the law! WE LIVE in a LAWLESS NATION where we’re ruled by RICH predators for the benefit of predators. its in our corporations, our businesses, our govt, our politicians and our “law” enforcement.

    5. Trump HATE, Trump HATE, Trump HATE!!!

    1. @PabluchoViision Major falling out? Could it be that both were doing the same underage gal at the same time and got limp and fell out?

    2. @PabluchoViision I want to know why NO ONE said anything when Rudy predicted that dirt would appear about Hillary Clinton- and it did the next day! Russian hacks and Assange made it happen. Rudy backtracked, but he said it.

    1. @Jagger Lux ” continue pretending that you’re some sort of leftwing super agent of YouTube comments”

      lol, look what you are pretending to be…

    2. @BitBuhkit Eww, don’t call me a leftist. How dare you insult me so?! I however, cannot confirm or deny being some sort of “super agent of YouTube”. I do appreciate the attempted compliment though.

    3. I agree. It’s allways someone else not the evil Democrats. Someone that votes on lies/hearsay NO Evidence to try and impeach a president they hated them people cannot be trusted to do the right thing.

    2. @Jonathan Sterling – Michael Avenatti was never the crown prince of ANYTHING. The GOP just wishes he was.

    4. ​@Wayne-O 5169
      A simple search of this channel for Michael Avenatti shows how wrong you are. You never disagreed with anything your Crown Prince, your Trump Slayer said…

    5. ​@S Jeffries
      Most of the America hating subscribers to this channel are non-Americans. Never assume the America-hater is a fellow American, most are not. These are worldwide forums and lots of America-hating non-Americans love to stick their filthy noses into our business.

  4. Although I want to see Former Guy in a jail cell, I really want to see Princess Show Pony doing time because she needs taking down several hundred pegs from her ‘perfect’ life.

    1. @anon ymous The one the whole world watched live. America is not the only country that shows news you know. Which is your problem is it not. Like Trump you may lie and lie and lie. However, that was covered by world press. Not just Fox.

    2. @kathleen gallagher I’ve always figured that Fred and his wife were part of the German American Bund before WW2 regrettably the membership records were destroyed the minute Hitler declared war on America.

    3. @tom wool I am sure it is drunk. Why else would a Trump fan be on MSNBC Youtube page? Dunk or getting paid to troll.

    2. @Eve Again You conveniently stopped responding when I posted just ONE fact about Biden’s feckless existence. You cant keep the charade going anymore.

    3. @c. j. macq Settle down, Francis. I saw your dissertation when I clicked on it. No way I’m reading all that on YouTube. lol. Seek counseling if this is your therapy.

  6. May Donny be blessed with nightly colonoscopies from the boys at Rikers Island ‘Welcoming Committee.’

    1. @Hans van Dijk I actually think if he drops the soap there’s going to be several people who run to pick it up so he doesn’t have to bend over. But I appreciate the sentiment
