  1. This is what Trump have done his entire life, among scores of other crimes !

      @UCzLhJeYNoxuBIeorhCPx7MA You need to back up your accusations with some solid proof. So far all we have is an investigation into Hunter Biden that Trump insisted take place before he left office. Just like the Durham investigation into the “Origins” of the 2016 Russia investigation. It’s been nearly 3 years now and nobody even knows what or who Durham is even investigating nor how much tax money he’s spent so far. All I know is Trump Supporters are real quick to make accusations and NEVER supply any evidence. In a Trump supporters eyes we have to prove that their lies are actually lies.

    • @Anita Bruton Unfortunately Dump cult clansmen will never believe that Dump is a proven liar, over 30,000 lies and still counting. They refuse to believe because they bought into these stupid lies and now do not wish to look like the idiots they are. It takes moral honesty to admit that you are wrong.

      As well as Grifting!!!!!

      I’m giving 5000 to 1 odds that not a single penny will be returned to even one person who wants their money back.

    • @Mimzy Jinx Except the fact that he isn’t rich and his net worth is only by the properties him and his wife owns but still has pending mortgages for. So, your comment is moot. Biden has the least net worth of any president.

    When you support a grifter, you get grifted!

    • Yep, as the saying goes “a leopard never changes its spots”.

      I wouldn’t go that far, but he WAS a saint compared to the self-proclaimed ruler of America.

    • Bootie Shaker | April 5, 2021 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      @Aggressive Attitude Era somehow I doubt a saint would have needlessly let 400k people die on his watch. How do you explain that? Not to mention all the other corruption he caused. He is the devil in disguise.

    • @JD Russell That was then – This is now.

    • @Bootie Shaker I think “Aggressive Attitude Era” was referring to a previous comment about McCain by JD Russel.

  3. The irony of Donald Trump supporters saying “stop the Steal”…. When Donald Trump was literally stealing their money! hilarious

    • @N 827 Oh and I guess that’s why Trump was sued for defrauding students, why he’s under multiple investigations, why he hid his taxes. Because Trump’s a CRIMINAL!!! Oh and you want to talk about racism, corruption and cheating? That’s Trump, PERIOD!!! And I can prove it. Where’s your proof?

    • And called Georgia literally trying to commit election fraud.

    • @N 827 Oh and I have compiled a list of 37 reasons why Trump didn’t deserve a second term. All VERIFIABLE facts.

      Why Trump doesn’t deserve a second term

      1. Committed human rights violations, (taking babies and toddlers away from their parents)
      2. Told Bob Woodward how dangerous the virus was, that it was 5 times deadlier than the flu and was easily passed thru the air.
      3. Lied to the country for almost a year about the dangers of the virus, resulting in the deaths of over 400,000 Americans
      4. When asked by a journalist to address the country to offer words of encouragement, Trump attacked the journalist who asked the question
      5. Took Putins side against his own intelligence agencies in Helsinki, thereby making him a traitor
      6. Called veterans “losers and suckers”
      7. Refused to investigate allegations of bounties put on our troops
      8. Has attacked the leaders of every one of our allies, but never once said anything negative about Putin.
      9. Defended the Saudi crown prince after it was proven he had a Washington Post journalist murdered
      10. Called white supremacists and Neo Nazis “fine people”, even after one of them murdered a protester
      11. Applauded a politician who assaulted a journalist
      12. Was the inspiration behind the El Paso shotting, the mail bomber and the Tree Of Life shootings
      13. Had private meetings with Putin where no one in his cabinet was allowed to know what was said.
      14. Told 4 congresswomen to “go back to the countries they came from and fix things there” before criticizing him. Of those 4 women, 3 are American born citizens and one is naturlized, two are black, one is Latino and the 4th, a Muslim
      15. Turned the DOJ into his personal law firm to prosecute his political enemies and protect his political allies.
      16. Hired Bill Barr as his Attorney General to be his Roy Cohn, to do his political dirty work
      17. When asked to condemn terrorist groups, Trump refused, telling the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by”
      18. Told people in his administration to break the law and he’d pardon them.
      19. Said he was the “chosen one”
      20. Pressured the CDC to change it’s guidelines to suit HIS agenda, at the risk of harm to the American pubic
      21. Recommended using disinfectant and UV light internally to fight covid
      22. Took Covid advice from game show hosts
      23. Hired a radiologist, who takes pictures of peoples bodies, to lead the Covid team
      24. Was fine with mass casualties to achieve “herd immunity”
      25. Had his DOJ cover up crimes committed by members of his administration.
      26. Used the DOJ to free his criminal allies and prosecute his political rivals
      27. Demanded the arrest of Biden, Obama and Clinton
      28. Lied for months about the election being stolen, leading to the storming and attack on the Capitol Building
      29. Incited an attack on his own country
      30. Praised his people for attacking the Capitol building on his behalf
      31. When Trump went on overseas visit to England, he was greeted by protests from the citizens of England
      32. When Trump appeared at a baseball game, he was greeted by chants of “Lock Him Up”
      33. The Mueller report documented 10 instances of Obstruction of Justice.
      34. Refused to get the Federal Government involved in the fight against Covid, instead, let the states fight over ventilators and PPE.
      35. When Trump spoke in front of the UN general assembly, he was laughed at. Trump has made the USA the laughing stock of the world.
      36. Altered an outdated Hurricane map with a sharpie, trying to prove that he was right about where it was supposed to go.
      37. Remarked about the continental Army in the Revolutionary War captured the airports.

    • @N 827 Oh, and I forgot this.

      38. Had Louis DeJoy, who NEVER worked in or for the post office, installed as Postmaster General to sabotage the post office so that it couldn’t handle the expected volume of mail in ballots.

    • @N 827 Yeah, Trump is such a great president he got impeached twice and oversaw the deaths of over 400,000 Americans on his watch and couldn’t care less and said and DID so. The mass rallies in the middle of a pandemic when he KNEW how dangerous it was. Trump deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison. Trump’s a TRAITOR, PERIOD!!!

    He got a no interest loan from his donors without their permission. We used to call this stealing. Always read the fine print! He was crying about voter fraud as he was perpetuating wire fraud. Fraud guarantee!😂🤣😂

    • You voted for men in the girls room !! You voted to ruin woman’s sports by letting men play ,you voted for higher taxes ,higher gas prices ,more than 2 sexes, you voted for the commies and your talking crap about uneducated !!! LOL,LOL,LOL,!!!!!!!!

      The quote is actually “I love the poorly educated”

    • “I am sick and tired of smart people” Biden

      You have to remember Trump was a D sudent and his dad payed his way into school and trump payed people to do his work ..

    • @Patrick Swezey Trump was an A student from 1-10th grade then became a B student.

      PT Barnum is looking down, or up, and saying, “Man, this Trump fella is a no-good dirty crook!”.

    I guess “Owning The Libs” got a little too expensive for some of those people.

  9. That’s the business man they voted for.

    It’s becoming an never ending criminal story. Even today new crimes still to be discovered.

    • Yup. Trump’s presidency was a crime spree

    • Turning Point | April 5, 2021 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      And this is what’s becoming public knowledge. Anyone naive enough to think the biggest still hasn’t been discovered yet? 10 minutes with a Google search about Drumph and his family’s legal history shouldn’t make this latest story surprising at all.

    • René Olguín | April 6, 2021 at 11:45 AM | Reply

      @biz man i sincerely believe it was a Putin attack… a very successful one thanks to his puppet

  20. The irony of this; you can’t even trust the “stop the steal”-guy 😄🤣😜😆👍
