  1. “OUR house, not his.” Time to evict him just like Jared is evicting his tenants

  2. The craven Republicans are just openly weighing whether they should go all-in on Trump’s fascist minority rule coup yet.

    • @Kathleen Beauchemin But jump they will to save their own a$$.

    • They’ve been fascist for a while, but I’m glad you’re finally catching up with the rest of the world. Americans can be so oblivious lol

      The hypocrosy is unbelievable they did,nt accept Trump won last time they fought it all the way for 4 years hassling republicans out with their children maxine waters saying get in their faces the phoney Russia dossier now just because the dems have won now they want a united America lol

    • Joaldavid Sutton | November 6, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      Democrats are so awful in defeat like last time and now so full of hypocrosy wanting to sound so reasonable in victory while crying for 4 years it any wonder Fascism seems so inviting to some people?why not try to be a bit more likable?Maybe people would come over to your side,Screaming racist and fascist at anyone not of your liberal stripe is hardly going to make America a better place to live in,The left are now even arguing with the words of MLK for decades they were used as wisdom yet this generation of the left seems to think its above everyone and everything forcing their ideology on to people.

    • Unbelievable that they’re still at it.

  3. If this was ANY OTHER incumbent………Biden would have already been deemed the winner

    The GOP got everything they wanted out of Trump, now he’s going to find out how his ex-wives felt.

    • @Michele Kett But it was equal, he’s a Con man so he used the GOP as well. Now those ‘roosters are coming home to roost!’

      Wow..some people are so extremely perfect and yet they cannot legitimately walk on water. People don’t need to attack someone for being divorced, having children or have a religious view- as some have in these comments.

    • MR. ALL IT KNOW | November 6, 2020 at 7:41 PM | Reply

      That’s an excellent point.

    • Insignificant360 | November 6, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      @homesteader fifty w/ ricky & martha You do when a party flaunts those values and use their power to try and legislate morality onto others on top of being shamelessly hypocritical.

    • Insignificant360 | November 6, 2020 at 8:43 PM | Reply

      @Chris Aldrich That’s not what Stormy Daniels said, and she knows these things…

  5. They aren’t split they’re just done with trump. They got re-elected, McConnell has his judges what do they need trump for? he’s exhausting.

  6. GOP = American neo-fascist evangelical Christian party.

  7. Is Trump the first One Term Impeached President in History. If so he’s finally best at something.

  8. Hector Latorre | November 6, 2020 at 2:47 PM | Reply

    Easy to tell the ignorant and racists now. Just look for the ones missing a nose. The nose they bit off to spite their own face.

  9. They probably realize that putting doubt on our voting system also makes their wins questionable. Anyone can come up and claim fraud. But our system was set up to prevent such. If the people choose the wrong person than they have to deal with the consequences, but to try to take that right away is not how our democracy works.

  10. Where is Jared the minister of everything????

  11. The GOP is the Un-American party, Trump cultists are fools.

    • @Nier Automata agreed, hopefully checks and balances won’t fail us.

      Holy motherboard!! Takes me back to the horrors of star Ocean: the second story, 80 endings!
      The game sounds fun though, I don’t remember any of that being advertised.

    • @Nier Automata 5 times? With 15 different playthroughs in Mass effect, child’s play

    • @genorem lol playing the game again is child’s play but the philosophy behind each playthrough plays a major role in the story. The game’s story is very heavily focused in it’s philosophy but it’s subtle and if you didn’t focus on it then it’s just “another game” so to speak. It’s like Bloodborne with it’s story on how there’s more than just what you see in the game. However, to witness the true ending, the player themselves must make a sacrifice. No joke lol.

      they can’t leave here no other country wants them.

    • @Ghost2u People You are obviously in the dark about this.

  12. Many people are saying that the only way Trump makes it to 270, is if he loses 80 pounds.

  13. I love the smell of MAGA tears in the morning…it smells like Victory…

      @Trent Bonebrake sure remember when trump supporters were chanting “the Jews will not replace us” or when they killed a women in that same weekend or when they tried to kidnap Michigan’s governor or all the rioting and voter suppression they’re doing as we speak.

    • VelvetLens Films | November 6, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      @Trent Bonebrake you know what the left was protesting? Police killing unarmed black people. But you’re too busy burning crosses to see that.

    • ​@Joaldavid Sutton
      Senate select committee on intelligence report #5, page 137
      Trump campaign coordination with russian military intelligence.. I’ll leave 4 years of boring rusher rusher rusher at that

      Yeah, hush hush, keep the secret evidence secret like Guiulliani did with the ‘hunter emails’ when NBC tried for over 2 weeks to get them – nnope, we’ll provide them to dimestore tabloids tho!

      Yeah. Lincoln was a racist, so? His statue ws removed on Indigeonous People’s Day. Dakota 38 ws painted on the base.
      *On December 26, 1862, 38 Dakota men were hanged at Mankato*

      They tore it down right after Roosevelt’s here’s what rosi said, “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe 9 out of 10 are”

      But but but, still waiting for all those riots four years ago – oh that’s right, never happened, neither did KellyAnne’s bowling green massacre –

    • Joaldavid Sutton | November 6, 2020 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      @Lars Jones Maybe all that is true but i find the left so condesending so smug so arrogant so superior in its attitude its so dislikable,Try disagreeing with a left wing student they get louder and louder until they are almost screaming a leftist woman spat in a policemans face in new york then was outraged when she got arrested its this arrogance that infuriates me,

    • @Joaldavid Sutton Yeah, that attitude would put me off too. Hey if Biden won, and it looks like he did, it’s up to the left to be gracious and remember when the contest is over we’re one America. America wins every election, not the GOP or Dem contestant.

      I’ve suffered plenty of abuse on here from trump supporters over the years and I’ve dished out plenty too.

      I don’t know how we’ll ever get back to ‘normal’ with all the crack head media out there – you’ve got garbage like infowars and Punch on the right and cesspool dwellers like the palmer report and wonkette on the left (no offense, but yeah, damaging stuff to civility) and very few people who visit mid-range sites like this or newsmax actually follwo the unbiased 99.9999% truthful media like Reuters, forbes, Assoc Press etc.

      Be well, give Biden a chance? (mcconnell probably won’t) we’ve got him for 4 years and see if you might like the new deal.

    ‘Why can’t Trump go to the White House anymore?’
    ANSWER: Because it is forBiden (forbidden).

    Imagine being in a party where COUNTING ALL THE VOTES IS CONTROVERSIAL. Couldn’t be me.

  16. Just spewing conspiracy theories don’t make them true.

    • Amadeo komnenus | November 6, 2020 at 5:53 PM | Reply

      @mike james That allegation was fact checked as false

    • A court order a lawyer had to watch counting going on. He was denied access and that’s not a conspiracy.
      Making fun of people snd saying it’s a conspiracy is easy to say.
      If someone’s got nothing to hide they would let everyone watch right ?

    • יוסי מיינר | November 6, 2020 at 6:09 PM | Reply

      @mike james so saying trump’s birth certificate is fake and he was actually born in Canada or that he is a reptilian aren’t necessarily “not true”? There isn’t any hard evidence that trump was born in Canada or that he is a reptilian, but people are saying that.

    • יוסי מיינר | November 6, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      @Jim Jones a conspiracy is easy to say. If there was some legitimate case with evidence and not just vague hearsay then that is valid grounds for investigation and should be investigated. Jumping to the conclusion that they’re hiding something and stealing an election while not having any in depth knowledge of that state’s election laws or any context of the event is a conspiracy theory.

    • @Jim Jones “A court order a lawyer had to watch counting going on. He was denied access and that’s not a conspiracy. ”
      both democrats and republicans got to watch the recounts. the republicans wanted to watch CLOSER, or use binoculars.
      THAT was what was denied.
      what YOU said shows how conspiracy fantasies grow.

  17. Quit calling him the president. He showed us last night that he doesn’t deserve that title.

  18. “We can’t determine the results of an election until all legal votes have been counted—and every frivolous lawsuit has been filed and dismissed.”

  19. YT “tyt Trump goes down.” it’s called. it’s over. John Lewis’ district ended up getting Biden majority in Georgia.

    • Trent Bonebrake | November 6, 2020 at 6:48 PM | Reply

      Wait for the recounts

    • @True Justice Unfortunately not. They’re just see it all as evidence of some big conspiracy to turn uneducated whites into slaves that serve the intellectual elite (i.e. graduated High School). Part of our plan to keep them all down like when we made cigarettes dangerous by putting warning labels on them and when we made more car accidents happen by requiring seat belts.

    • @True Justice

      Seconded. When your bald like myself just shave or trim and be proud of your skull.

      Even Stephen Miller gets that.

    • @True Justice PLEASE proof your response and edit out the mistakes? It’s otherwise hilarious.

    • @Trent Bonebrake Never. It ain’t gonna happen.

  20. dude we haven’t seen any fraud but just out of trumps mouth.

    • unless you count DeJoy mucking up the USPS.

    • @Timothy Burton Who are your sources? Because I have been watching a variety of news sources and have not heard any of what you wrote from any of them.
      In fact, many news channels have been debunking such lies because there is no evidence.
      I have even listened to a few of the conspiracy theory channels, out of curiosity, just to hear what they have to say about the elections, and they are the ones who say much of what you have said here plus more; not based on factual evidence, just lies.
      There may be a few people-5 or 10 who try to pull something dumb, but it is certainly not the Democrats “knowingly and intentionally” messing with the voting system, that is the Republican way of doing things-trump specifically, as he messed with the US Postal system by hiring Louis De-Joy as the Postmaster General, a longtime Repub megadonor, shortly before the elections started up, which has slowed the mail down! -for one.

      And, trump saying the mail-in ballots should stop being counted when Biden started picking up more votes- ridiculous!
      And, in the locations where the news reports Biden will probably receive more votes, because the areas are more Dem votes as in past voting trend, trump starts talking about taking legal action, just because HE is afraid of losing votes.

      Basically, when trump sees anything that is not going his way-it must therefore, be illegal, fixed or whatever else he can come up with to discredit the people/system-he has been doing it for the past 4 years-nothing new.

    • @Timothy Burton Lies, lies and more lies. From Trumpflakes no less. Y A W N

    • Timothy Burton | November 6, 2020 at 8:08 PM | Reply

      @Anna Of course you haven’t heard about these things. They never want you to know these things. I get news from left and right wing sources consistently, not just during election season and not just during this president’s administration. But since Trump’s election, the country has become so polarized, it has become more necessary than ever. Here are a few of my sources:

      I try to get news from both sides (I’m on here aren’t I?)
      My point in posting these irregularities in this election is that MSNBC and the MSM will not tell you about them. We should all be concerned about this activity no matter who we’re voting for. But we’re so polarized, people are okay with it as long as it helps their side…”Orange man bad!!!” Are these the kind of elections we want??

    • Timothy Burton | November 6, 2020 at 8:50 PM | Reply

      @Debra Jones Yes, I know. That’s a very easy way to deal with things in life. Anything you hear that you don’t like, just label it a lie. Anyone you disagree with politically is a Russian bot. Move on.
