  1. Odd how republicans have always claimed to be the “real patriots” yet here they are in outright hatred for our democracy. 🤔

    *Stop lumping **#JoeBiden** with **#BarakObama** together. Both men will lead with different styles as POTUS and **#RealPresidents** and **#CommanderInChiefs**, unlike the **#FakePresident** and **#DisasterInChief** in between their adminstrations.*

      BOTH BIDEN AND OBONGO ARE FRAUDS.

      @The Truth Is Out 777
      How’s the trolling going ? A one week account & you can’t find more than two comments to constantly repeat ?
      Oh by the way, it’s rude to shout 😈😈

  3. Ever heard Republicans “hem & haw” about how they need to reach out to Democrats the way Democrats “hem & haw” about how they need to reach out to Republicans? Me neither.

  4. Exactly why those Georgia senate races are so important.

    • Democrat’s control all 3 branches we can get things done instead of sitting on McConnell’s desk collecting dust & cob webs

    • Andre Williams | December 15, 2020 at 8:15 PM | Reply

      The republicans have already cheated in that race they have purged over 200thousand democrats off the roles already before the run off election.

    • GETTING ANY NEWS IN COMMIE LAND❓ 🤣🤣🤣
      WORD IS HARVARD GRADUATES MORE COMMIES THAN ANY OTHER, IS THAT TRUE❓

  5. The Republicans and the GOP must have lost their minds!
    If you thought Mitch and co were obstructive and nay-sayers with Obama
    look out for the next 4 years

  6. The republican “Lucy” has pulled the ball on democratic “Charlie Brown” enough times to know how this is gonna go.

  7. You want to be optimistic we the people need to remove this currupted trump administration out we DEMAND JUSTICE this America needs to get rid of these criminals crooks in office that are trying to throw our DEMOCRACY

      If you don’t, you’ll lose all credibility as a nation. You’ve obviously lost a lot during his “presidency” and as a onlooker I know that the American people deserve better. You deserve a proper education and not getting a proper education is the main reason Trump became president.

      Good luck.. you all have a lot of work ahead of you.

    It’s going to be hardER if GA doesn’t come out and vote the two Democrats into the Senate…

    • You know it must be beyond humiliating and shameful supporting the pathetic Democrats 😳

      @William H GOP cowards have shown they don’t know the meaning of shame.

    • @Stewart MacLean
      I love it how you guys cant’ decide whether Biden is too tough on crime or not enough. Apparently both give you excuses to hate.

    • @William H Kind of funny how most of Trump’s term the Republicans have been the ones charged with the most crimes. Then Trump hires the best people and then they either resign or get fired. He says now Barr is corrupt. Yep, another Republican.

  9. They aren’t republicans. They’re retrumplicans, except for very few, that want to be both.

    • You don’t speak for us.

    • Cheetah Dolcini | December 15, 2020 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      No one was speaking for you, they were stating their opinion of you. An opinion that is widely, & sadly justifiably, held by a tremendous number of Americans who are appalled by the absolute betrayal of our long held American values. If you don’t want to be viewed that way by mainstream society, you might want to affiliate with a less autocratic & more constitutional democracy leaning organization. Something far more centrist-conservative in it’s political views. The GOP truly has moved so far right that they are embracing fascism.

    • They’re republicunts!

  10. Hard?
    Yeah…
    Let’s Roll!

  11. If we get a fair chance with the senate there’s nothing we can’t do.

  12. I wholeheartedly agree. It can take years to deprogram cult followers and haters.

    • @SMS
      The thing about “unity” is that each party has to agree to come to the table. The point MrPhilbert was making is that the current GOP first needs to find it within themselves to break away from their image of what they believe donny trump is. Once they realize what donny is NOT, the building of “unity” can finally begin.😃

      Oh, wujy, you so silly! “Is that true?”🤣
      For you to question the validity of your own statement says a LOT about how you envision yourself …and it doesn’t look good. 😔

    Ya it’s the point. He needs to get a grip and win the Georgia and push through his agenda.

  14. Thomas kirschbaum | December 15, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

    There are trump supporters who hate “Obama care”. But they want to keep the ACA.
    Synonyms can be very challenging.

    • Stupidity kills, and not always just those who possess the lamentable trait.

      That’s a really good point. And it holds true across a number of policy areas. Unfortunately one party is better at campaigning and winning elections and one party is better at actual governance.

    • @Michael Wuj I’ve heard you haven’t got clue what a “COMMIE” is, is that true?.

  15. The reason Biden won was because his name wasn’t spelled TRUMP. And that is totally fine with me by the way…

  16. REPUBLICANS:
    Inmates are now running the asylum!
    Dems taking the Senate, Jan 5, 2021 they will be fine.
    (Presidency, Senate and House)

    Georgia is a must win, this is not your father’s GOP.

  18. Heilmann is a realist. It’s going to continue to be ugly as we work through this

    That’s why Georgia needs to get out and vote 💙💙💙 🇺🇸😊

  20. If Georgia goes blue then Biden has a chance. Otherwise ….

    • Tessmage Tessera | December 15, 2020 at 8:37 PM | Reply

      …otherwise he can do what Trump did. Do everything by executive order and appoint a bunch of “acting” members to his cabinet. Fair is fair.
