  1. With what she just said it’s starting to make sense to me as to why on the last census, we were asked for our personal phone numbers of which I did not put a real phone number down but it’s scary to think about how many people actually did.

    1. Like the US Government couldn’t find your number if it wanted to. Besides, just about anyone else, especially private companies and scammers, can find it.

    2. correct@GoGreen1977 … I feel it was an intimidation tactic to discourage participation & , thereby , representation.

  2. The adults always have to clean up the messes unstable, recalcitrant, temper tantrum throwing children leave behind.

    1. I agree except they weren’t children they were profiteering grifters who were willing to sell out their oath of office and American DEMOCRACY and American people just to get tax breaks for the wealthy and then expect a campaign contributions in return. And the endorsement of their supreme leader the insurection kid.

    1. There was a crime there was illegal leaks coming from career Washington they were trying to find the source of the leaks nothing wrong with that is there

    2. @Todd Smith
      You mean like when the FBI was Investigating Trump’s Campaign because of their treasonous acts ?

    3. @Todd Smith yes, it’s an abuse of power. The journalist wasn’t the leak, so they were spying on not just him, but everyone who contacted him, illegally.
      But then again, thanks to the “patriot” act, I’m sure there’s a loophole he can slither through.

    4. @Todd Smith actually a substantial proportion we now know were coming from Kellyanne Conway, but don’t let that worry you.

    1. @Guy North Well, you’re completely wrong, it’s very appropriate because it is a bit gross. That’s what happens when you have incontinent elephants around. Get a bigger diaper!

    2. @David Arango Even though the fascist of “45” was flushed in January, the stench lingers in no small part because of its willfully ignorant followers.

    3. @David Arango how ridiculous. With that backwards logic you would have to say donnie brought us covid-19.

  3. Well after 4 years of swamp infestation, it’s going to take a while to clean up the corruption!!

    1. Because Americans don’t know it understand history on any level. The irony, Teddy Roosevelt saved these idiots great grandparents basically from slavery and yes I mean the White People, only to ask to be Enslaved by a would be Monopoly seeking sociopath.

    1. They will be shouting lock him up all over the world. The world celebrated when Trump lost, fireworks everywhere

    2. He’d get home confinement if it got that far. Though it would be great if he and Rudy shared a prison cell. Both are reputed to have very stinky emissions.

  4. Rudy said he didn’t need a pardon because he claimed, “I am not a crook.”!!!
    Where have I heard that before?

    1. @KLR KLR Well my vote did not actually count since they are finding duplicate ballots in ARIZONA and GEORGIA Now .. Enjoy your Full Government control power trip , Georgia is about to throw a monkey wrench in 2 Democrat Senate Seats .. And… Give The electoral points to Trump ..

    2. The *best part* of #45’s Georgia *LIE…?*
      That it was *SO ‘bigly’ debunked* …and *by Fox ‘News’ reporter “Griff Jenkins”,* no less.

    3. @CynAnne1 The Georgia Lie? Well were going to find out who was lying in Georgia, Aproved FORENSIC AUDIT in Georgia, Breaking news right now.

    4. @Roger Jones He made money from foreign entities while Serving as Trump’s bag man. Rudy did not file a FARA REPORT AND MAY ALSO OWE THE US GOV SOME IN RETURN.

  5. Never good to have the Justice Department under Barr running smear campaign’s and head hunting the Presidents opposition and press. Deep

  6. Half of Congress hasn’t bothered to transition to a new president. The guy we voted to go away forever is still running the show even after all that has happened.

    1. Democracies are fragile entities. Corruption and fear will erode the principles if not vigilantly guarded.

    2. Well someone needs to be …. Bidens only interest is who is or isn’t wearing masks …. give me a break … Russia , China and Iran are all planning their attacks they realize that NO ONE is in charge … its just a matter if time

    3. @Sally Arey and they call CNN fake news. Lolz. To offer you the most famous and most intellectually advanced quote our former president left us…
      “you’re fake news”.

    4. Whereas #45 *fawned for communists and dictators* throughout his ‘presidency’, Arey.
      In fact, let us ‘count the ways’:
      1. #45 smiled, *saluted* and shook hands…with the men *who murdered* American collegiate Otto Warmbier.
      2. #45 smiled, danced and dined…with the men *who murdered* American journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
      3. #45 posed, preened and puled…with the former *KGB agent who attacked our country* in 2016.
      *’Three strikes’* …and *now #45’s ‘out’.*
      It’s *BEYOND* shameful…and yet *utterly* unsurprising, considering #45’s proven affinity *FOR* our nations adversaries.

  7. Imagine actually having to be qualified to hold the position applied for . If only that was the case for us regular citizens.

    1. Diversity hiring has destroyed many businesses and most of our government. Lori Lightfoot is the poster child for the effects of a diversity hire. 600% increase in crime/

    2. @Deanna Maria if that! Most likely cleaning toilets somewhere like a coal mine, his pet project….

  8. Obama had to clean up Bush’s economy failure, Biden has to clean up Trump’s pandemic failure, the Republicans came into power and create a big mess, then the Democrats came in and clean up. Somehow the American people never learned.

    1. For as long as I have been alive, that has been the case!!! We’re talking about almost 42 years. You talk about Reagan, Bush 41, Bush 43, and Trump. Clinton had to clean up behind 12 years of Reagan and Bush 41, Obama behind Bush 43, and now Biden behind Trump.

    2. The Republicans are better at messaging and communicating with the voters than the Democrats. The Republicans blame all of America’s problems on the Democrats and the voters tend to believe them. Then there’s all the gerrymandering, voter suppression and the running of anonymous third party candidates with names eerily similar to the Democratic candidates like in Florida

    3. Don’t forget about Clinton after Bush Sr. And Clinton had us in the last and probably only surplus economic history.

    4. @Matt Jackson Because Democrats appeal to the intellect, while the right’s appeal is tribal and visceral. They are fighting a war.

  9. … very surprised at this report… I recall that swampy has assured us multiple times, that he had “the best people” around him… it is a revelation…

    1. … this is a first for me, reply to my own comment, but I had to… it is obvious that so many people do not understand irony nor sarcasm

  10. I have to believe that T***p left this mess on purpose just to make it difficult for this current administration.

    1. Maybe.. but I don’t think he sees that far ahead most of the time. He had investigations started on people who are staunch loyalists. .. Gaetz, Guliani., etc. Why? People like Dj like to make examples of people at opportune times to keep the other followers in line. Who better to throw under the bus than someone you would expect to be safe from retribution?

  11. Imagine being so thin skinned you need to get your corrupt pal to unmask the person mocking you daily and he’s from my state.

    1. Well he’s the Prim Queen…too good to be mocked. Special, so he needs kid gloves, so he thinks.

  12. So, does this mean Merrick Garland will also be firing the DOJ staff who were complicit in all these acts commited by Barr and Voldermoron?? And, should they also have criminal charges against them too? Perhaps if this happened, there may be less chance of criminal behaviour like this happening again?

  13. I am so anxious to see all these people to answer to all this corruption!! We keep hearing about it but when will it happen!! Sooner the better!!

    1. No War, Best employment ever. No Border Crisis. Best Economy In 50 yrs,We were doing Great and there is more I could have listed. So I ask, who’s mess? Someone is going to leave a mess behind and it’s not Trump.
