  2. The Republicans are protecting a criminal and conman. Vote them all out in 2020. 👣💙

    • @Wes Bernard Which Busch? August or Adolphus?

    • @Wes Bernard ,👈The Multi Trillion dollar deficit he’s racked up begs to differ. America is just now becoming wise to it. The biggest recession in American history is about to happen and you can thank republicans for another one.

      @Wes Bernard There is an extremely good reason why “any positive things Trump really has done” weren’t reflected: relevance.
      It’s not a question of ‘does the bad outweigh the good?’ It’s a question of ‘did he do the bad thing?’ And so far, it looks overwhelmingly and undeniably as though he did.

  3. When you know who it is by reading the title. xD Don’t change, Ari.

  4. Imagine selling out your legacy for a creature like trump. There are 1000 other better lowlifes more worthy. But trump? Hes a fool in any time in any place.

  5. “They are free to say that’s not an impeachable offense, but they are not free to say it didn’t happen, because the evidence that it happened is overwhelming,” – Andrew Napolitano, on Trumps crimes of bribery and asking for campaign aide from a foreign national

    • @Oslo Vega: Did you read the posts on that upload? I don’t think his argument penetrated; perhaps it was too complex for those particular Fox viewers. But since most of the posts were merely attacks on the judge, they weren’t listening terribly carefully.

  6. Traitorous Trump always was and always will be a two bit fraud and a lowlife con man.

    • BobLoblaw
      and yet 40% still support him,something is wrong with your country,the rich support him because of tax cut and the poor is still poor

      @John Ho its not just USA…. Australia has a conservative government who got in by pin point target ing jof ust a few voters. The Australian government is owned by fossil fuel corps and climate change flat earthers.

    • @Bob Loblaw well put. Its astonishing. Surely Republicans aren’t so stupid that they don’t see the peril he’s putting the nation in?

  7. Boo boo boo lock him up he is a traitor who needs someone like that in the white house all republicans are just like him gym jordan needs to be investigated also nunez blue all the way🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸🌊💙👣put all this goons in jail….

  8. “Excuse me while I abuse power, to block your investigation into my abuse of power” – Trump

    All GOP enablers should be locked up too.

    Trump and the cult members minds- Muller report witch hunt…Impeachment hearing witch hunt….Wikileaks and Russian hackers heros🤦‍♂️

    Lock the orange clown up!!!!!

  12. $400 million in the freezer is too much yes TRUMP already got his Jail Room waiting for him and his all team ****

    • it’s only fitting when you think about it, that donald “deadbeat” trump didn’t even use his OWN money to commit bribery, he used YOURS!

  13. Who’s gonna be next to get embarrassed by
    President McCheese ???

    • Light Loafers Lindsey ?

    • Acinonyx Jubatus | December 2, 2019 at 10:15 PM | Reply

      Perhaps Mitch McTurtle?

    • Acinonyx Jubatus | December 2, 2019 at 10:16 PM | Reply

      Ooh! I got it! Devin Nonutz!

    • I am embarrassed by him on a daily basis, particularly when he’s let loose on foreign soil. What havoc is he going to wreak on NATO? Even taking group photos, he seems incapable of behaving like a normal human being. I cannot imagine what he’s like in a substantive meeting with his inability to read or retain information, to sit still and listen, his penchant for bloviating.

      And if there’s a formal event, they better have found a matching set of waistcoat and tails by now. He looked like Danny Devito’s Penguin at Buckingham Palace. That was embarrassing.

  14. Remember when Obama’s campaign manager, personal lawyer, long-time political adviser, “coffee boy,” and hand-picked NSA all went to jail within 3 years of joining his election campaign? 🤔
    Yeah, neither do I. 😆😅

  15. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party (Trump) is always right.”
    — George Orwell, 1984

    In George Orwell’s novel 1984, a Thoughtcrime is the criminal act of holding beliefs that oppose or question the Party. Thoughtcrime is thinking of anything that the Thought Police and the Party deem is illegal. Doubting the party line, or thinking anything contrary to the Party’s message.

    Within Trump’s cult, he has a name for those who commit “Thoughtcrimes” against him, like questioning his actions, and calling out his lies, Trump refers to these people as “Never Trumpers.”

    • The really scary thing about this quote is that it doesn’t shock me. This is today’s reality. Back, in the day, when I first read it, it gave me nightmares. Now? I just shrug.

    • @Tom Devlin: I think that’s because he brought the temperature up so slowly, starting with the birth certificate nonsense. We’re the frogs in the boiling water.

  16. I just figured out why I’m so poor.

    I’m gonna run for congress!

  17. Heros and Zeros | December 2, 2019 at 9:30 PM | Reply

    Hard time sounds like the right amount…

  18. People have died for Freedom in America, and now people want Russia controlling America, because of Trump greed.

    • I find it very disturbing when I see the asshats wearing tee shirts that say I’d rather be russian than be a democrat.

  19. Indiana matthew | December 2, 2019 at 9:51 PM | Reply

    and The POTUS is still running his mouth like a Fool.

    How did we go from Obama to this? I feel like I’m living in an extended episode of The Twilight Zone!
