87 Comments on "‘Has He Upheld His Oath Of Office?,’ Author Asks About Trump | Morning Joe | MSNBC"

  1. “Making America great” is not part of the oath of office.

  2. The following statement is a headline from the future. “Millions of good people died because of the stupidity of others!”

  3. Early voting results look good for Biden and Dems, but do not get complacent. Especially if you live in MI, PA, or WI, please return your mail-in ballots ASAP and follow instructions to the letter. If Biden wins the states Clinton won in 2016 (all reliably blue states) plus these three battleground states, he has 279 EC votes. Bye-bye tRump!

    • ​@White Candle wow you got a lot wrong here. First the debunked theory of the hidden Trump voter has been proven wrong. And the theory was not about embarrassed Democrat voters voting for Trump. That is not really a thing. The theory was some Trump voters were embarrassed to admit they were voting for Trump because they understood what an abomination he was/is. Not because they were registered as Democrats. Second the polls are not “useless” as you say but they can have problems. And polls are not meant to be concrete facts or predictions to be proven wrong or right. They are helpful snapshots of where voters most likely stand at the time they are taken based on a sample. It’s not an exact science but it is a science. Unlike you. Only you have the audacity to think you know the future and to know things you have no way of actually knowing. The polls were wrong in 2016 for two reasons. The pollsters missed some voters in swing states that were voting for Trump and because some voters after Comey’s misguided announcement two days before the election decided to vote not for Hillary. That gave Trump the final votes he needed to squeak out a win. That is not the same election dynamics as now. This time around it’s Biden the nice guy vs Trump the exposed liar and fool. That is why Biden is winning. You are living in the past when you still get your jollies poking fun at Hillary’s loss and think everything now is the same as before. That election was more about Hillary losing than Trump winning with his lies and deceit. Finally no one like you believes Trump is secretly way ahead because the polls as you claim are worthless. That’s just magical thinking coming from you. Someone who gets so many things wrong just to convince yourself of a fantasy. You have learned well from your master how to spin wishful thinking fairy tales.

      @White Candle Did you stop to think that the Democrats wouldn’t tell “pollsters” for fear that the “pollster” were really Trump thugs looking for someone to publicly assault to intimidate other democratic voters? Remember Trump is calling his base out to be “poll watchers” with the idea that them being there will intimidate voters who intend on voting for Biden.

      In 2016 Trump would have lost if not for the electoral college. Your Orange Alien God squeaked out a lead in 3 states that Hillery would have won without gerrymandering, and those states turned the electoral college to Trump. If the election was determined by the popular vote Hillery would have won by more than 3 million votes. Maybe one day you will have the popular vote, but the electoral college will give it to the Democrats. That isn’t too likely, the Republicans depend on gerrymandering and the electoral college to give them elections that they shouldn’t win.

      You may now go and plan out how you will try to steal some other election.

      As Glenn Kirschner often says: “Vote in numbers too big to rig, and too real to steal.”

      Devin James Stone Says: “A vote for trump is a vote that says the law doesn’t matter.”

      @Old Grizzly You tell them! However, they are likely not listening. On the other hand, the Trumpites that spread the virus to their friends and families because of Trump’s super spreader events just might have learned a lesson, and hopefully it wasn’t learned too late.

      @Nick Harvey In my reply to him I forgot to mention that in ’16 I would have broken from my life of voting solid blue because of Hillery. The only thing that preserved my all blue voting record is that Trump ended up being the Republican candidate. In that election Hillery was scary, but the Orange Alien scared me even more.

      CORRECTION: Especially if you live ANYWHERE in the United States.

  4. Trump took an oath to protect the American people. 225,000 dead from a pandemic he deliberately played down. He is a pathological liar and failure!

      @M R
      Future president BIDEN 🇺🇸 released 22 years of tax returns. NOTHING to hide. WHAT is donnie hiding?
      Donnie is a traitor and a SCOUNDREL. !

    • @Chad Simmons I’m a real American I don’t side with the rooskies

      @Aztec Warrior Not in those words… the “hoax” was that the Democrats were concerned about it and demanded swift and decisive actions and for all his blunder and willingness to call everything and their dog “a hoax”, TRUMP never repeated that lie himself. He left that to some of his spin doctors and minions like Mike Pompeo and the press mouthpieces of his administration (who seem to be in an eternal struggle to prove who can be the worse… McInanny, Grisham or Conway)

      We should not use false rhetorics just to “stick it to the GOP”. If they haven’t said it demonstrably, it is not a fair claim to say they did so.

    • Wil the pill Orshal | October 26, 2020 at 8:49 PM | Reply

      @Shawn Corbin <~ ignorant Most of those deaths could have been avoided if donnie hadn't publicly denied it was a threat. Disbanded the pandemic response team. Called it a hoax. Stroked his ego with super spreader events. Donnie IS A TRAITOR.

    • @Aztec Warrior The democrats running my city are doing a decent job, but thinking 1-party should control everything, is a communist political view, not (American)!

  5. There is only one way to remove Trump from the presidency: Come and vote for the Democrats! The blue wave must be big! 🌊🌊🌊

    • @Shawn Corbin You should really seek help.👍

    • @White Candle only if you believe in fake news, fascism, communism, and are an airhead ever Trumper who believe everything Trump says is true.

    • @Shawn Corbin l don’t support evil. That is why l would never support Trump. I consider 225,000 too important to support the evil man who called the virus a hoax and fake news, knew it was spread airborne in early February and then advised against wearing masks. That was evil and intentional, and is described at best as negligent homicide.

    • @Julia Dixon Thank you.

    • AGREED TOTALLY!!

  6. That author is just savage, what a hero. But I think Donald Trump is not just traitor but also dictator.

    • he may ACT like a dictator, but he isn’t actually a dictator.

    • A wannabe dictator

    • Dictatorship IS what trump wants. Potus is his best SCAM ever. He is fully aware. He wants power and endless money for life.
      Rallies are MEANT to spread covid to suppress the people. No stimulus is MEANT to suppress. He cares NOT about votes cuz the plan is a fraudulent takeover of government. A TSUNAMI LOSS would show the Court and Military the will of the people. He won 2016 with ONLY 25 % of the eligible votes. NON VOTERS get off your butts and don’t help him win this time.

    • He’s not smart enough, he’s a want-a-be.

    • @Nancy Douglas My thought exactly! 👍💙🕊️

  7. It is time to bring down the big oompa loompa. VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!!

  8. A President cannot defend a nation if he’s not held accountable its laws😡.

  9. The only way to get Trumps cult to acknowledge the severity of the outbreak is that they contracting the disease & suffering from it.

    • @M Reuter
      I’m good with that

      Trump’s death rallies are starting to negatively impact his followers physically, but whether that’s enough to jolt a sizable amount of magas awake from their brainwashing still remains to be seen.

    • Even if they have, they won’t admit it.

    • imao – Biden’s covid plan is almost exactly the same as Trump except for the national mask mandate which is probably not constitutional.

    • ByeDon Twenty20 | October 26, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      @esj8341
      Masks probably aren’t constitutional, what like the laws making people wear seat belts or not smoking in public places aren’t constitutional? If a law is passed in behalf of public safety and health, like the aforementioned seat belt and smoking laws, then a law requiring people to wear masks in public will be legal and enforceable too.

    They have to make an example of Trump or else the next nut job President that comes along is going to be worse.

    The Whitehouse has become a safe house hideaway for criminals, because a person CAN be above the law there. Not only that, but have an AG that will attack whomever you wish.

    Remove “Citizens United” and get Corporate Money out of Politics.
    Require that all News, Social Media and Pundits TELL the TRUTH.

  13. 4:30 Trump CANNOT be pardoned by himself or by the next president, because the NY State prosecutors are going to charge Trump with STATE crimes.

  14. Exactly… Trump broke the oath he took at the inauguration. He has completely messed the whole American government and democracy systems, to the point that there are an increased number of people saying that there is no longer a democracy.
    Trump keeps siding with Putin all the time, meanwhile he keeps eliminating many government watchdogs and other officials without “legitimate reasons” and replacing them with totally corrupt and incompetent “Trump-donors”..
    Literally Trump has hijacked all the government agencies and even Congress with his buddies-corrupt Republicans. And now with MAGA, which grew with violence and cult.

  15. At least Nixon found a small piece of goodness in himself to resign. trump doesn’t even that small amount of decency.

    The people that enabled and allowed this to happen – the republican senate – must be held accountable. If they had any shred of integrity, we would not be in this precarious situation. NO president is above the law, and the Justice Department is OUR Justice Department, not the president’s.

  17. Trump and his family do need to be held accountable, and so does his GOP!

  18. Everyone should be held accountable for their actions. This should not be complicated, guys.

  19. These Republican senators are just as guilty as Trump covering up for him and not speaking up when he committed these dirty deeds especially when he proved them to be true.

    When Trump took the oath of office, he was lying as usual. Just like all his marriage vows to Ivana, Marla & Melania.
