  1. It would be best for the Republican Party if Trump were no longer President.

      “Die Hard” we’re counting on, Chipsey. But Die the GOP will.

    • @Chip Diamond You poor deluded sole ask the night nurse to give you some aspirin and Valium you will feel better in the morning after a good sleep the doctor will come see you After your suppository and bowel care

  2. There are no cracks in the current republican party.
    Their base has its conspiracy theories, anti-minority ideals, and a blinding love for guns that clouds voting for their best self-interests. And their leaders can keep pandering to corporations and be corrupt without any accountability.
    Same old GOP. 😄😆😅😂

  3. I say the more the merrier! #25’4’45 will drive himself NUTS, or STROKE OUT,or drop dead of HEART ATTACK. Any of the above I’m fine with👍

    Good Republicans don’t support Evil Trump.

    Folks ignore the 🤡trolls 🐒💩,Please Register and Vote Blue! Thank you 😊.

  6. We cannot afford another Republican and they are never good for the economy. If they were fiscal geniuses then most welfare states wouldn’t be red.
    “According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the U.S. has experienced 10 recessions since 1950. All but one of them started during a Republican administration.”

      I’ve been saying it for decades: repubs break economy, dems fix it. populace becomes complacent with good economy, dems don’t show up enough to vote, minority of voters vote repubs back in. repubs break economy again, cycle repeats. been that way since at least reagan.

      ​@Datoneredneck S The one key issue that 45* has been clinging to for two years is his argument that the economy is booming. Set aside for the moment the fact that that isn’t true: many critical indicators such as wage growth and job creation are lagging (and trailing Obama’s record).

      But 45* has been using the stock market as his evidence of a strong economy. That, of course, demonstrates his ignorance of economics. The stock market only reflects the value of equities that are mainly traded by giant financial institutions. It is only one gauge of the economy’s health.

      Also, we have the 2nd longest Bull market in history…that Obama helped create in 2009, and the stock market performed better in Obama’s last year than in 45*’s reign as it has steadily declined, so even if the stock market performance was the sole indicator of the health of the economy, it has been negatively effected by 45*, due to his tariff war, tax cut/welfare for the rich, and instability.

    • @Datoneredneck S Claiming that it is the best economy just shows your stupidity. Best economy for who? I guess you are not the top 1% so most likely you got a huge taxcut of 60 dollar per year. Of course you got zero bonus from big companies because you are living on wealth fare in your mothers basement. Just shut up before you embarrass your self more. All memes are already done, your champion is suggesting to nuke hurricanes and you see no problem …

  7. Trump wants to nuke hurricanes, and his Republican supporters think everyone else is deranged

    Trump isn’t going to lose in the primaries. But these challengers will certainly do some damage to Trump’s re-election prospects before the general election. These primary challengers will likely help the Democratic nominee in November.

      If the Dems run Biden and the Repubs run Weld, I am voting for Weld. My candidate is Warren. I will only vote for Biden if I must to keep Trump out. And I am a lifelong Dem.

      Trump could lose the primaries if someone with actual republican values runs against him. The repugs I know, for all their faults, are really not raving racists who believe Donnie was sent by God to rapture them.

      @U.S.S. Scambalam I must agree. I miss real Conservatives.

      @Cherry the Tart I don’t miss them, but they were a lot easier to live with than these trumpsucking maniacs.

  9. MSNBC helps the environment: where else can irrelevant, impotent Republicans with dead careers go to be recycled?

    GOP : Greedy Old Plutocrats. They lost their moral status way back with reagan; actually back in the Civil Rights era when they decided to become a Far Right White Supremacist/Nationalist party. 45* is nothing new; he’s just the logical end point of decades of the unAmerican GOP ideology.

      @shav12 Until they grew up and learned from their mistakes. Once they knew better, they evolved. But you don’t believe in evolution, do you, right-wing troll? That is why your ilk has devolved into what Dems use to be a long, long time ago! Congrats on your regression! You wear it well.

    • @shav12 2018…..8 PROUD WHITE RACIST ran on GOP tickets…..some FACTS for you. You were saying?

      Game Boiz are the party of incelibate notsee trolls.

    • Robert Cartier They grew up and realized that instead of being openly racist that they would keep it in secret. They would then enslave the minorities with their votes. Continuing to give empty promises while making them fear republicans for being “racist”. So they continue to vote for the Dems even though they make their lives worse every single year. The top ten worst cities in the country are all run by Democrats. Coincidence?

      You trolls are hilarious. Absolutely no one but the stupidest conservatives and your fellow alt white game boiz believes the crap you spew.

  11. A tiger can’t change its stripes. Don’t trust him.

  12. Reporter calls out Trump to his face for lying at G7 summit, asked why was him inviting Russia to G7, and if he wasn’t worried about that hurt him politically.
    Trump’s answer should worry GOP … “I don’t care Politically” ….. Yes, we all know that, I am wonder what if the GOP just don’t care, or they are so blind to lose (anything they have left) because this fool

  13. When will the Republican primary debates start? I want to see Dementia Donald Debate, but he will just throw a temper tantrum.

    I remember when Ted Kennedy ran against Jimmy Carter lost to Ronald Reagan. When Pat Buchanan ran against George Bush, Bush lost to Clinton, so anything is possible

    • Robert Cartier | August 27, 2019 at 2:09 AM | Reply

      His only usefulness, as I see it, is to show their base who trump really is… Other than that, he is almost as bad for lying about Birtherism. Don’t trust him, but he may be of use.

    Yeah, where were these guys when Comrade abducted the first 3,000 children and babies??? 2017, 2018 and now most of 2019 and now they want to object. Bull$hit. They knew Comrade Trump was unfit before he was elected.

    I totally agree with Mr Walsh
    That Donald Trump is is sexual predator that is 100% the truth about Donald Trump

  19. Mark Sanford has a real chance. White Trash male voters LOVE rich men that cheat on their wife and then get caught lying about it
