  1. Both Shreks are important to Trump. They populate the swamp.

  2. Shrek to Trump: “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera! Heehaw! Nazdarovya!”

  3. They’re the 2 Ho’s from the President’s tinkle tape.
    We just thought they were women this whole time.


    • @SouthSide Chicago Still rooting for your fav team/tribe huh ? This in not a football game ok This is OUR Government & never in it’s history has it been drenched in endless slimy corruption ! Past Presidents , GOP or Democrat have never had secret meetings with thugs who infuse dirty mob$$ into a campaign or extorted conspiracy stories on opponents etc… None not 1. Nixon , Regan Bush , Clinton , Obama . They were all decent good hearted human beings Who served our country proudly the best they could.
      This guy was a sleazy con artist his whole life & now he behaves that way as OUR President. & You think this is a good thing ???

      @Randy Sanders Lmao
      Dumbfuck, you can cry about it as much as you want it changes no actual facts. The first amendment doesn’t cover your lies. But hey don’t let the law or anything get in the way of your opinion, Drumpf sure doesn’t.

      @Randy Sanders Here dumbfuck, educate yourself. Then know that the FBI will be watching your open treason.

    • …and they all need to be jailed until they face their trial.

    • ​@Mike Nunyabizness Please don’t tell me about the first amendment. Are you a Constitutional lawyer or just play one on YouTube? After all you socialist commies don’t care about the Constitution do you? The first amendment doesn’t revolve around what you think is right or not. It protects all speech. That’s why we put the right to keep and bare arms as the second amendment to protect it. We all know how you Democrat commies feel about the second amendment huh? Run along and go tattle on internet people like you like to do clown boy.

  5. If he say’s he doesn’t know them, that means he knows them.

  6. Trump is the product of corruption, greed and shamelessness. Yes, his father and grandfather were crooks, so, of course he is that now, he has always been a thief, and so are his children, his company and everything that he touches and revolves around him. The republican party can’t survive after this man, all of their members are part of treason and corruption as well.

    • @John P – And yet people in America are standing up to the corruption and greed. People are working every day to destroy the corruption. The SDNY is working overtime in their effort to dig up all of the corruption and greed of tRump.

      America is not the product of corruption, greed or shamelessness. It is the product of a group of men with a liberal attitude towards govt. and the people.

      But you are just another Russian hacker and I have reported you. BYE, COMRADE!!!

    • Great insight..💯✌️!!!!

    • @Honey Keeper Settle down fruity nuts.

    • @silky johnson LMAO 😂😂 😂😂 😂😂 😂😂 😂…. get your grip back..😱😱

    • @John P Trump is a product & result of 18yrs of Fox news & the rest of the alt.right media tapping into the most ilinformend & bigoted of Americans & turning them into an army . Propaganda has destroyed countries before , but I have to believe that the majority of us are not so easily brainwashed & we will get thru & past this nightmare.

  7. ‘I don’t know those guys. You’ll have to ask Rudy. I take pictures with everybody.’ – Trump


    Are we sure this guys name is Donald? I mean, he says it’s Donald. But is it? You can’t believe anything he says.

    😶 these people think they’re above the law and think they can ignore the justice system

    • @Nevyn of OZ 1973 – NO, they are not above the law but it will take TIME to prosecute them. Either Barr must be removed from office or tRump must be removed from office by impeachment or the election.

    • Well, Native L, you gotta admit he HAS gotten away with it so far. It doesn’t seem there’s any end to it looming on the horizon either. 😖

    • @Gayle Chamberlain We need to take to the streets to protest 1st!

    • @v blackwell – I guess that you have not heard of the impeachment investigation??

    • Vivian Stimpson | October 23, 2019 at 4:07 AM | Reply

      Donald Trump is about to be quashed. He’s the biggest fake the world has ever seen. The day he is gone from the political scene will be more than worth having a parade, ( the likes of which the world has never seen ). In his wake will be a bunch of political losers who will be noted for being the biggest suckers, and most unpatriotic and detrimental to democracy ever witnessed at the same time. There’s enough ignorance to fill volumes of history books already and it’s not over yet.

  9. Of course he doesn’t know them isn’t that funny a lot of pics with them for the whole Trump family.

    🍔 Republicans literally want us to ignore reality he’s on tape asking foreign powers to meddle in our elections

      @Kevin Mcneil but at the end of the day nobody if you are in power in this country rather your congressman senator president vice president and you cannot ask any foreign country for help in your re-election campaign and that goes for Republicans Democrats Independence that is considered an emolument clause something at valuet his guy been violating emoluments clause since day one

    • When the Republicans get to the point of defending the indefensable you know that Trump’s corruption leads far further than the White House

  11. The law firm of Dum Dummer and Giuliani.

  12. By now everyone should know that Trump is incapable of honesty. 🙄

    • @John Lyons – haven’t you been paying attention?? Do you know what ABUSE OF POWER means?? No, you probably have no idea what that means. Do you know what the HOBBS ACT is? No, you are probably TOO STUPID to know what that means.

      I am not going to give you are tutorial on the crimes that tRump has committed, if that is what you are after. Do you know ANYBODY smart enough to do a google search? If so, that person might be able to help you understand that your glorious leader is a criminal.

    • @Robert The Bruce said “Still voting Trump/Pence in the 2020 election here.” OK. One good thing about repeating your mistakes is knowing just when to flinch.

    • @Tomandtob Your dreaming ! They don’t wise up ok. They root for thier tribe Regardless ! It’s up to us in 2020 to show the world that these zombie turds are not the majority in America. Let’s all get out & Vote !!!

    • @Leo – I did not say ALL OF THEM.

    • DarthSailorMoon | October 23, 2019 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      @Tomandtob When Trump accidentally exposes himself on TV that is when I actually believe him.

  13. Doesn’t know them or what they do. I’m sure the liar in chief is telling the truth this time. NOT!

  14. So he has a photo with the 2 henchmen , his family has photos with the same henchmen, his lawyer has a photo with the 2 henchmen, but, but ,but , I never knew them.😅😂😉👈

    • Lawyers! Jay Sekulow was there as well. The same Jay Sekulow who just recently said he was not in the know with whatever mickey mulvaney admitted to last week – all these loose ends are somehow connected to all of trump’s stooges and lead to trump and Russia. Its amazing!

      The head of Trump’s super PAC knows them so well they gave him ove $300K!!

    Answer: Not as important as they are to his impeachment.

  16. Yes Trump has pictures with “everybody”, but like any picture, it’s the story the picture tells that sets these apart and are so damning.

  17. This is all about the rich getting their tax break everything else is collateral damage

    • Don’t forget all the judges they have confirmed no matter how biased and unqualified to get abortion over turned

    • That is very true but there is a deplorable segment of his base that is getting as screwed as everyone else but still defend Trump just to spite liberals. These are the serious morons. These are the reasons we can’t have nice things.

    Wait! What?
    The presidents and his personal attorneys are mixed up with Ukrainian thugs and corrupt oligarchs
    Who’s really surprised??

  19. Wouldn’t it be lovely if Giuliani brought Barr down with him when he goes.

    • The Shadow of Truth | October 22, 2019 at 7:01 PM | Reply

      Barr is to busy running around the world trying to strong arm governments trying to find the DNC server that is sitting in the FBI’s Basement.

  20. The Republicans are covering for him, if he’s so innocent why are they Hiding so much ???
