      @Llib Nos like biden? The same guy that said you ain’t black if you don’t vote for me, poor kids are just as smart as white kids, I don’t want my kids going to school in a racial jungle, the same guy that called Strom Thurman a known segregationist his mentor, the same guy that voted for the crime bill and the 3 strike law that incarcerated a historic number of African Americans, the same guy that attended the funeral of the grand wizard of the kkk, the same guy that is endorsed by Richard Spencer (a white supremacist) and I can go on and on if you would like?…I use to be as misguided as you and believed what the media told me about Trump but the truth is the true racist and fascist in this campaign is Joe Biden

    • @Bucky Blue Eyes also I dont see color whe it pertains to kids .when I’m coaching kids are never the problem .its parents they’re 99%of any problem

      Wa Ly. Poison. Just in case you are not making a joke, it refers to the cult led by JIM JOHNS. When his world started to crash down on him, he put poison in kook-aid and forced his followers to drink it. If they didn’t, his goon squad shot them. Google for the whole story.

  2. t’rump hasn’t had such wild mood swings between manic euphoria and soul-crushing desperation since that time he snuck into Ivanka’s room only to find a new lock on her underwear drawer. 😅😂🤣

    Why isn’t Trump worry about paying his fair share or any taxes to help contribute to the tax pot, to help make America great again.

    If the tax system is broken for the super rich (billionaires) and big corporations (billion dollars corporations) why didn’t he fix that using his executive powers and influence in a republican senate.

    Didn’t he campaign that he was gonna root out corruption,  fix the system and drain the swamp.

    Trump became President and had the power to fix the broken tax system, he been President for almost 4 years , why didn’t he fix it.

    He saids he is the greatest president of all time.

    Isn’t it a American and a Patriotic thing to do to actually pay your fair share in taxes help our city’s and state from going bankrupt.

    Help our city’s and state  Infrastructure from crumbling.

    Help to rebuild our beautiful and amazing country ,our motherland,help to repay for all the benefits we enjoy and
    Actually make America great ..

    How much more, can a person or entity want, how much greed before we lose it all .

    The bottom line is ..
    He took over a growing economy that the Obama administration was able to fix when the 2008 crash  happen (big corporate banks greed  broke the economy) now after 4 years of Trump doing “great business” we have now a economy that is worst than the 2008 recession / depression

    We try Trump , he had his chance, he blew it , time to give someone else a chance..


    • God we are desparate for Trump to be back in Business. We will have the biggest Bankruptcy the World has ever seen. Just ask #Greece #Rome #Egypt(Alexander the Great) Great Britain.

    • Any thing broken now is always blamed on the Democrats, when they actually have to fix what the repubs have broken. Hope trump had fun riding on Obama’s and Bidens economy cause now he fkd that up to.

    • TORCHED Dreadnought | October 12, 2020 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      @Just Me You mean the economy that had several government shutdowns (I watched military service members and GS civilians forced to go to work with out knowing when they were going to get paid)? Or the one that had some middle class citizen’s healthcare costs double (mine included)? Or are you talking about the one that had the highest average (across both terms) unemployment rate since WW2 (7.7%)? Or are you talking about the economy that was actively shoveling high-tech, industrial, and manufacturing jobs overseas because with trade agreements it was cheaper to outsource than build it in the states?

      I agree with everything you said except god.

      There is no God. Sorry, but I am not allowing Christians to spout their personal religious beliefs in the public space without pushback.

      Done pretending Christians are decent people.

    • How can he rail about Defunding Law Enforcement when he’s completely defrauded the Tax Base ? Who does he think pays for Civil Services in this country ?

      NOT HIM !!!

  4. Imagine. ‘Winning’ is worth killing people for. Psychopath.

      @David Hale because of Trump and the GOP and idiots who think a virus cares about a political bent.

      Bonnie Bagley: Thank you! I was reading a book called “The Sociopath Next Door” that I found while “purging”; I have no idea why I had it, it was pub. In 2005, I think. But the list of criteria necessary to receive a Sociopathy diagnosis was astoundingly trumpian! So if trump wins, God Save America! We’ll have a Sociopathic dictator wannabe as the leader. Herr trump hasn’t been too shy about “I would like to be president for life.” quote by treasonous trump.

      @Cynthia O’Keefe It gets worse.
      There are people on Youtube telling their watchers that _they_ have the guns and training, and liberals have blue hair and panic attacks.
      And the comments sections are like extracts from the Rwanda era.
      Some is _locker room talk,_ some believe it, and it all goads on silent lurkers.
      Seeing it as a whole from over here in Britain, there is a lot of long term emotional and physcholgical pain on display in America, dulled by an all you can eat buffet of anti depressants , and worse.
      Emotional people and repeating firearms and 6 months of varying amounts of loss of routine, in an election year, with that Jekyl and Hyde in the biggest bully pulpit in the World?
      I am 2 years past what I thought was Trump exhaustion.
      I cannot imagine what it must be like to have him on your tv etc all day.
      He’s just another daft President to us, he makes the news most days, but in a jokey, _now, in other news, President Trump put his hand in a wasp nest._
      _Scientists are baffled._
      _When asked about the bandages on his hand, Donald pointed out that President Obama was a doodie head_
      Now, the weather…

  5. I’m looking forward to Attorney General Cuomo bringing charges against Trump and his entire Mafia capitalist crime syndicate.

    • AG Hillary Clinton

    • @The_Fearless_One No too political. We need an AG who knows the Justice Department in and out. Someone who has been inside and knows how it all works. Also, someone who knows how to try cases. There will not be time for someone who has never been in that environment to get up to speed. We need someone who can put together a team quickly and has thought about this a lot. I like Neal Kaytal, but think Glenn Kirschner would be better as he truly fits the bill. A lot of folks are lobbying for him and after watching him on MSNBC and his YouTube channel, I get it. He knows what justice looks like.

    • Yes!!!!

    • @William H Music 2020 lol
      HA Ha ha ha

    • Exactly what should he be charged with? Deleting emails from private server? Oops that was Hillary Clinton. Spying on a campaign? Oops that was Obama. Ballot harvesting? Oops that was Ilhan Omar. Grabbing the breasts of a secret service agents wife? Oops again that was Sloppy Joe Biden. Keeping an innocent man on death row? Nope, that was Copmala Harris. Plageurism ? Oops that was Sloppy Joe. Killing 7,000 nursing home patients after dumping Covid patients in nursing homes? Oops that was Dandy Cuomo.

  6. Trump using his election money to pay off his loans 400 million dollars worth that’s why he’s got no money for election

    • Arcturion Blade | October 12, 2020 at 8:43 PM | Reply

      Trump’s campaign finance manager also had a nervous mental breakdown after a standoff with police and beating his wife/gf. It was discovered he had personally embezzled millions of dollars from the Trump campaign fund. That’s why Trump and the GOP (they tied themselves financially to this fat, crooked anchor) are desperate because they don’t have any more money. Lindsey Graham was literally crying and whining on Fox News that he was broke, lol.

    • @Nessuno Dorme every time he went bankrupt he came out with money but everyone else involved got nothing

    • @Arcturion Blade yeah you’re right that follow drink a lot of the Kool-Aid

    • He still owes ~$250 million to Chinese banks. And Kushner owes $1 billion to the Saudis & UAE.

    • I was thinking that.

    As opposition to Trump’s pandemic approach grows, most voters want Senate to pass stimulus before considering Amy Coney Barrett

    • you are fired! | October 12, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

      But it won’t happen under the republican senate that’s for sure. They will confirm barrett first before anything else, sad but true

    • You are so correct and the REPUBS do not care about anyone else. First they get us evicted, take off the food from our tables and shut our electricity off! Now he’s our spreading the virus while rushing to put a Judge on supreme Court to take away our health care. Do his supporters realize that are feeling the brunt of his policies, I am not taking about his welfare for corporations and millionaires. Hate is that powerful,

    • Barbara Carpenter | October 12, 2020 at 10:01 PM | Reply

      Ain’t gonna happen. republicans want to pack the supreme court so when trump loses he can sue and Cavanaugh, barrett and his other lackey will vote for him to be potus again. After all they were placed there for that purpose..that and to get rid of the affordable health care. trump has done so much damage to this country and Americans that it take decades to straighten it out. Some of the damage may be permanent

    Biden For President And Harris For VP. Vote Blue Wave All the way


    • @David Hale lies but if that’s what you believe how sad is that. The American people would rather have him than trump. Says so much more about him than byedon

    • William Wilhite | October 12, 2020 at 9:46 PM | Reply

      @Javier Medina he’s a conman. You’ve been conned. If he ever gets the wall built don’t stand on it with your back to him, he’ll push you back home. He has no use for anyone, children in cages. What a sap you are.

    • @William Wilhite NOW SAY IT WITHOUT 😭 CRYING 😭 CRY 👶

    • @David Hale tim Apple. And let’s not forget George Washington storming the airports.

    Of course he is desperate. A defeat will guarantee jail time, and most likely the collapse of his business empire. I would love to see Donald jr. and Eric file for unemployment.

      @American Patriot … In addition to this I stand with half of all republicans today who don’t support Trump with the Lincoln project and the Republicans against trump movement who are joining the Democratic party in the aspect of voting against Trump. You just have no idea how bad Trump’s one and only term is coming to a swift end.

      Magicwizard…what empire??? 🤷🏾‍♂️ That too, is fraudulent. 💯

    • Hopefully they get an additional $600.00/week

    • @Support your Troops & Athletes Why did the founders write… no taxation without representation….. But Trump is the highest representative n a tax dodger…..
      Your pitiful constitution sucks n impeachment process is a stageshow….

    • Yolande Robinson | October 12, 2020 at 11:10 PM | Reply

      magicwizard196 I hope you’re right. But I do think he and his grifter offspring will get away with it if the past is any predictor of the future. I’m afraid the US does not have the world’s confidence to do the right thing and put him and his administration behind bars.

  10. he’s lucky he’s got Air Force One to carry them around couldn’t afford a bus

      Paul Wiley they ALL should be held accountable for that fraud,corruption and negligence

    • Paul Wiley we are paying for all of these campaign rally’s. The rally at the WH and all these rally’s. He uses tax payer funds to take Air Force one. Just imagine what else we pay for

  11. The word you’re looking for is “reeks.” And yes, it does.

  12. He’s inciting makeshift militia in swing/red states to intimidate voters with the GOP senators cheering it all. These fascists really have no limits to what they’ll do. People need to vote and vote fast and securely as early as possible. Drop boxes, in person or by mail but mail is riskier given the GOP sabotage to sorting machines.

  13. Who does Trump owe 420 million dollars too? America people need to know more important then his negative test!!😊

    • TORCHED Dreadnought | October 12, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      I would sure like to know, I think its probably BS until I see it.

      When yrump last tested negative to Covid-19 is important for contact tracing. Personally, I don’t believe him. He lies. All the time. About everything. Why would this be any different??

  14. Trump wreaks havoc because he reeks of desperation.

    • @American Patriot “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!” — Donald Trump, January 24

    • @American Patriot Oh, he’s a xenophobe. That’s was settled a long time ago. He can’t even lead himself to safety.

      @American Patriot Fake news!

    • That quote should be a Biden ad. No need to say anything else.

    • @American Patriot ~ he is a xenophobe. Don’t get it twisted. If you think he did this to protect Americans you are delusional. This was the perfect opportunity to flex his racist muscles. BTW he didn’t completely stop folks from coming in from China/Europe which is why it infiltrated the US to begin with. So he failed either way and continues to do so. He sucks!

  20. Trump will never stop lying.. He believes that idiots will not stop believing a liar.. And he believes that there’s many out there…
