  1. So republicans are cowards, whatโ€™s new?

  2. The GOP must decide to be Trump Lemmings and follow him over the cliff or just quit politics before they get sucked into a big vortex of political corruption and scandal. GOP, time to mutiny your crazy skipper or jump ship altogether. Trump is giving the Dems truck loads of political ammunition for them to defeat GOP candidates everytime he or Rudy open their mouths! #GOPTrumpLemmings

  3. will followers rise up against the sociopath

  4. I thought there were men in the Republicans Senate, but what these Nancy’s need secret votes to turn on trump, if you don’t have the spines to tell trump to his face that he cannot destroy our constitution, then you have no business in the people’s Government

    • @Miles North it is simple so I’ll keep it simple, we either have a democracy or a monarchy, maybe you don’t respect the men and woman who gave their lives defending our constitution but I do…simple!!!!

    • @frank salo the Democrats don’t want to control anybody and they don’t want your guns, but we do want common sense laws to stop people without any sense from killing innocent people…Trump’s acting like he’s a king, he has no respect for our laws, open your eyes.

    • @Miles North classy, you must be a republican or related to trump..

    • @irish “lady” – Get out of the echo chamber of the msm bubble and get some original thought, “monarchy.” Also, educate yourself: we’re a constitutional republic, โ‚ฌunt.

      You speak as if politicians had morals or spines lmao

  5. Pretty sad that all the Republicans are terrified to stand up to the big bad trump.

    • @T Electronix The disloyal Amaricans!!!!

    • @PianoMan 2018 If you look at thier beliefs they have a good govermental concept; the problem is; if one got in… would they adhere to the difinition of the parties ways?!! beliefs???ยฐยฐ

    • Aaron E Yes, if they could do everything they say WITHOUT growing the government and WITHOUT robbing the successful, then, yes, they have a few good ideas. ๐Ÿ’ก

    • D L Yes, DONโ€™T TREAD ON ME.

    • @D L No.
      Unless you were suggesting an extreme right-wing party that would only appeal to existing Rep voters then a hypothetical third/indep party would draw from undecideds or middle-ground voters (both of which are groups that the Dem party needs to win next year).
      Or even, if this third option was squarely in ‘Democrat territory’ taking voters who would otherwise actually vote for a Dem candidate.

      And aaalllll of those possible options with the exception of ‘extreme right’ mean less chance of a Dem win…..and more chance of a Rep candidate win.

      This not a game.

    Looks like it’s time for the RNC to rethink its decision to cancel Republican primaries!๐Ÿ˜†

    • @Marilyn Simmons

      It’s not uncommon when there is no real opposition to an incumbent President. Some primaries were cancelled on the Democrat side during the 2012 election cycle. However, the cancellation of THESE primaries when there are 3, viable competitors for the nomination IS a bit dictatorial.

    • Bob leroy
      And let the democrats destroy this country ? No thanks. I support Trump.

    • @tar baby ; alternate reality is one way.

    • Prophecy & Revelations | September 27, 2019 at 9:32 AM | Reply

      Just cancel the Republican party. Next Democratic president needs to round em all up and send to Gitmo

  7. They are corrupt and gutless fools!

  8. There has barely been a Republican with a spine since John McCain died, they are a pathetic unpatriotic bunch, I donโ€™t expect the cultists to change as they are too heavily invested in this orange piece of corruption…they will probably stay in denial until he passes away just as Hitler followers were then deny they ever supported him or were conned

    The GOP are too late. This Independent csnt find one reason to vote GOP. They have abandoned party values, American values…

    This time in history is really dark times in American history, I can not believed we are witnessing this White House is conducting these crimes in full daylight.

    • Biden did the same thing only worse. For every attorney who says a crime was committed, there is another one saying not so. Go figure.

    • @Gerald Odom ; isn’t it interesting that no one has even said that “non exonerated” really means “guilty until proven innocent,” like the president has to prove his innocence of some crime that he hasn’t been charged with yet. With all the lawyers elected to congress, I would have thought someone would have mentioned this fact, where one is supposed to be considered “innocent until proven guilty.”

    • @Nunya Business I’m not a demorat and I’m not a trump supporter.
      I’ve just seen how corrupt he really is, since the 1980’s.
      Kinda proves your non-thinking minds theory wrong.
      Then again it’s not even your own theory or words. You’re not showing yourself to be clever enough for that. You’re just repeating words of others.

    • @Emiliano Jimenez exactly

    • Wow. Reading this thread the level of idiocy is incredible

  11. So what he’s saying is that they are not prepared to defend America against its enemies both foreign and domestic ๐Ÿคฌ

  12. EVERYTHING the Republican Party has said and done for the past two decades (starting with the shamelessly hypocritical impeachment of Clinton) has been perpetrated in BAD FAITH. They are not just after as much wealth and power as they can get away with, they want total IMPUNITY.

    • @john doe – LOL, a blatant sockpuppet tries to change the topic. Not this time, comrade.

    • @Lish Lash Look whose changing topics comrade. Is it not true that both parties recieve funds from private donors and lobby organizations? Is it not true that politicians on both sides have their pockets filled by Big Buisness. So from one Comrade to another, lets be real. ๐Ÿ˜

      Citizens United, which allowed unlimited political donations from big business & the ultra rich to drown out the donations of average people, was a right wing baby. So if you disagree with all the (bribe) money in political donations, you’ll know who backed the idea that unlimited donations is “free speach” & corporations are “people”. There is not an equivalence. The left was against these issues.

  13. Everybody beware…these Trump lunatics are gonna have a fit the worse it gets for him…he already has blood on his hands

  14. I never voted for or supported John McCain, but I wish he were still alive and in the Senate. At least he had the guts to stand up to Trump.

  15. William Crowley | September 26, 2019 at 2:34 AM | Reply

    I have to agree, stay focused on this event. Let the courts deal with more of his criminality when he is out of office.

  16. Thing is, if republicans don’t vote TO impeach, then ALL of America will know that republicans do NOT stand for the truth, and they can never be trusted again

    • Didn’t the election and breathless defense of Trump these last 3 years already accomplish that?

    • That doesn’t matter ,they only vote party. If their party is in charge that is all that matters. The GOP knows how to spin the story, to make them believe, black is white.

  17. Dems need to keep it simple so Republicans can follow along.

    Impeach him for the one bad thing and indict him as a private person for all the other crimes.

    Susan Collins is wiping sweat off both her faces as we speak…

  20. Republicans will be forced to decide , Is it Party before country? Or is it Country?
