    • @Lisa King we can’t help it it’s like watching a train wreck you want to avert your eyes but you can’t you got to see what happens next what lies they will spute

    • @johann supper wow I wonder how a Jewish veteran of World War II would think about that

      So many extreme view points here and very little common sense. Trump has condemned the KKK, racism and white supremacy multiple times. Trump has partnered with and invested in so many African and Hispanic entrepreneurs over the years so the facts wouldn’t lead one to believe he’s a racist. I’ve been watching video after video of African Americans supporting Trump and calling out the insane liberals for exploiting their community to push their agenda. I’m going with Trump and I’m not white.

      @johann supper insanely twisted. I suggest you actually go and live in a communist country and see how it truly feels. This coming from someone who knows. Shameful how ignorance twists realty.

    He’s using race to take attention away from the hit he and Putin out on the American Soldiers.

      This is fake news. Adam Schiff was told about this alleged bounty in February and yet took no action – why would that be?
      My suggestion would be because it’s fake or has no evidence to back it up but CNN will run with it because they have no integrity.

    Fun fact: Trump used to be a Democrat. 😂
    2015 Trump: Confederate flags should be retired to museums.
    2020 Trump: Confederate flags should be free to fly wherever because his base supports the flag. 🤣

      That time scale is reversed. He wanted the flag before. He doesn’t want it now. You are mistaken in saying otherwise. What’s to say he can’t change his mind?

      @abigale v it is true. I remember when he changed parties.

    • @Enoch DeMille Are you sure you don’t want to rephrase that in spite of the video and the recent twits from the buffoon in chief? You seem kind of deranged…

    • @abigale v this ain’t 2016 anymore,we’ve seen how Trump handle COVID-19 while he bashed his predecessor over Benghazi and Ebola.
      Wake up and smell the coffee,stop calling yourself patriotic pro life family values while you support Josh Duggar and Oliver North.

    Is ANYONE surprised that there’s a video of this gutless wonder saying the EXACT opposite of what he says NOW!

    • Enoch DeMille | July 7, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

      @Leon Anthony there are also people living in trailers thinking that progressive social programs are helping them. Neither side is correct. It comes down to the responsible individual. Who makes a responsible community. Which makes a responsible state. Which creates a responsible country. Government, no matter how it is set up, will never help me as much as I can help myself. And look at me, I definitely need it. But it’s never come from a social program or ideology of either side

  8. Vote Blue in november!! The gop swamp is a hate group

    • Hate Group? Like BLM (Burn Loot Murder)? “Kill Whitey” Like Antifa? Brown Shirts for the DemocRATS. KKK, DemocRATS created them. But you wouldn’t know that being the ignorant “useful Idiots” that you are your kind are, i.e. LOSERS.

      @EJ Damn, EJ. — Kenneth tried to bring some reason into the discussion and you turned everything he said around. All Republicans aren’t bad and neither are all Democrats.

      This country used to work together for the common good now we are at each others’ throats because neither side wants to back down and listen to the guy who might have something good to say about both sides.

      @Kenneth Wood “Conservatives” are only willing to let you live in peace when you’re not looking to have an abortion, or are a member of the LGBTQ+, or a minority/Dreamer, or are anything but a Christian. I’ve never seen more hated from News media than I have from Tucker Carlson, who people are already propping up as a Republican candidate in 2024. He would, quite plainly, be even worse than Trump. I’m not saying that both sides don’t express their share of hate but I’ve yet to see more hate than I have from the “rights”. Do I need to start sharing videos of all the fat whities and Karens that feel enabled by Trump’s presidency, telling random innocent people on the street to “get out of my country”? You people hate “libtards” so much that you refuse to wear a mask in public just to make a political statement. It’s because of those people that the world is laughing at or pitying America right now. The supposed greatest country in the world that can’t handle a pandemic.

    Wise move on the Pentagon to have confederate flags removed. Next rename some bases.

    His remarks about Nascar’s banning of the Confederate flag and kneeling during the national anthem are same same, he’s just scoring points with his base.

    Donald Trump: “It should probably be removed and put in a museum somewhere and left alone”.
    Now he’s campaigning on the exact opposite. This is only one of dozens of flip flop issues including the assault weapons ban, climate change, etc etc.

      Trump just doing what narcissists do. He’ll say anything to be loved, say anything to be forgiven, and throw a fit when anyone puts the two together and realize none of it adds up. Just another day in the life of a liar.

      @Kevin Sutherlin I didn’t vote when Trump became president. Many people didn’t vote when Trump became president. We will be voting this year, because nothing is more motivating than hatred. Hatred for a lolcow president who is turning our country into a laughing stock to the rest of the world. I’ve never voted in my life but this year I vote not in support for Biden, but out of hatred for Trump. I hope your so-called “silent majority” can stand up to the wave of non-voters who are kicked into gear by Trump’s inhumane treatment of Americans.

    The reason hes defending this is because he knows that the American people will never allow a statue of him or a his name on a street or school or library .

  19. Are we really surprised that Trump doesn’t denounce the “c”onfederate flag? If he denounced the flag he would lose the remaining votes he’s counting on.

      @Enoch DeMille I think Mr Trump probably doesn’t have his speeches written down, or maybe even written for him like some other potus’s have previously, which leads to him saying things that can stir the media into a frenzy, I also think he does this on purpose, but I know the history, and I know that democrats was the Confederates, I know they gave america a black president for the first time, who did nothing for blacks,
      And I know that when every Media outlet, Every influencer, celebrity, not just in the USA but world wide all have this agenda of knocking a president who has stopped american warfare, kept good to every promise he made (99.9%)
      Revitalised the american economy.
      Tells me the problem isn’t with the president,
      when I see the spike in child trafficking cases, where billionaires, princes, and music moguls alike are being indicted and questioned over historic child sex abuse and human trafficking, When I notice that that only happens now, under a Trump administration, when I see the media desperately try to cover for these people, when I see these things, I Think I have figured out why the above mentioned organisations and individuals are doing the very best to make the world hate President Trump. You asked for it buddy, this is what I think!

    • Enoch DeMille | July 7, 2020 at 8:21 PM | Reply

      @Brett Hurlstone Thank you for sharing your opinion, which is a pretty good one. i never said i was a trump supporter, and i fully agree with all that you have said, except for the part about Obama. yes, he did nothing for blacks, but he didn’t do much for anyone else either. now, he did have good intentions, but he never was able to keep the peace in the middle east, and Obama care failed the american people. besides this point, i fully agree with you. trump is a jack***. but that cannot be a reason to not give him any chance, even if he has failed before. i believe in forgiveness, and if trump is willing to change his beliefs and maybe do something good for a change, then maybe he can change other aspects in his life, and the government. that is the reason i support him taking down confederate flags and storing them in historical locations. he can definitely do better in other areas, but in this small one, he is correct
