    I call BS the idea that this is a hoax and I call BS on Trump saying that he was not briefed

  2. Trump is panicking like a pregnant evangelical schoolgirl

  3. Republicans are responsible for the worst things to happen to this country.

    Trump needs to publicly address this issue. Republicans cutting democrats out of intelligence briefings has got to stop. It’s another obstruction of Congress.

    • Laura Zaboraski They have long been dog-whistling it for sure

    • 7charlierox You are so right — Trump’s pathologies run so deep, and are so entrenched in his every thought and behavior, that he is literally incapable of not only speaking truth, but of even seeing reality. His internal defense system is so maxed out that reality has no way to break thru to puncture his fantasy.

    • @Crystal Giddens fake news. It’s his job to know

    • @ckendall67 You actually believe that!? Yikes!!!

    • @Claudette JYES. OK? Because Republicans are ALWAYS acting like Obstructionists. They did the same thing when Obama was in office. They obstruct & obstruct & obstruct & obstruct & obstruct! Because they want to protect themselves and their precious agenda.

    When the President of the US turns his back on the military in order to appease a foreign adversary, that is the definition of treason.

      article 25 may be in his future.

      @Edward MacLennan The GOP is scared shitless of a convention.

    • Edward MacLennan | June 30, 2020 at 3:49 PM | Reply

      @Wade Stanton No, not right now. When the balance of the Supreme Court is not 5/4 against and all branches of the Government are Dem, then they would be terrified. There are many GOP who have been planning on 86’ing the Constitution on the DL, for a while now. And they still have the Senate Majority and presidency*

      @Edward MacLennan The GOP likes the status quo, because it works for them. The GOP is scared of change and a convention’s outcome cannot be predicted. IMHO

      Aaron – Calling out our elected officials on their wrongdoing is not “trolling”. It’s holding them accountable and demanding justice for our servicemen. Some conservatives used to find merit in that.

  6. We can’t forget Helsinki, when Emperor Bunker-baby McBoneSpurs stood next to Putin and said I believe Putin over the US intelligence community.

    Trump doesn’t care about America, never did, only himself. He was programmed to USE America, for his own business affairs, after all, he is a businessman first with no heart. A lot of us saw this right from the start, but the Republicans played foolishly with fire and voted for him anyway.

    Trump is the most incompetent oligarch in the history of Russia.

  9. Clearly Trump knew. The questions now should be: What will congress or the senate do? Will republicans just remain silent as usual? 🧐🤔

    • @Andrew Mitchell Somebody should explain to Moscow Mitch that all those Russian dollars that go into bounties will not be invested in Kentucky to secure his re-election.

      Edit: misspelled Kentucky, thanks Rosalyn.

    • they will remain silent, because they know they will not be reelected, without the support of the trumpazee’s, Yes, some will lose seats to dems, but without the trumpanzee’s they have no chance of holding onto the POWER they crave

    • GhostHunterGirl | June 30, 2020 at 12:39 PM | Reply

      They will remain silent every single time. The Republicans in the senate, and the Trumpanzee’s are traitors to the US. They’ll defend Trump on this, as well as on anything he ever does, JUST to spite liberal Americans and keep them underfoot.

    • Rosalyn Jeffery | June 30, 2020 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      @Dozo G Kentucky. He’s from Kentucky…

    • @Rosalyn Jeffery That’s what I thought, then I looked it up and picked the first city listed on his Wikipedia page. He was born in Alabama. He represents Kentucky.
      You re absolutely right.

  10. Republican have sold this country out to the Russians to line their own pocket$$$$

    • moomoofish 1 | June 30, 2020 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      And to own the libs. They will shoot themselves in the head just to own the libs.

    • @moomoofish 1 No wonder you conservatives love the Confederate flag. It is the flag of treason. And you moomoofish are a traitor.

  11. Any veterans paying attention to this crap and your insides are boiling, me too.

    • Dirty Sanchez | June 30, 2020 at 12:12 PM | Reply

      Yes, my family is military. We are OVER TRUMP!!! It was first brought to attention by our troops over there! Trump is accusing our troops of lying???!!! He thinks it’s just intelligence, no, it was brought to attention by our troops. Now Trump is going to say the Military times is a fake like CNN or MSNBC OR EVEN FOX. Trump is absolutely a traitor!! Omfg!!

  12. Which is worse:
    That the President of the US was briefed and did nothing.
    Or that he wasn’t briefed at all.
    Both scenarios reek of treason and/or incompetence.

    Trump believes his master Putin than our 17 intelligence agency’s. That’s the definition of the word TRAITOR.

    The problem with lying is that sometimes the truth won’t cooperate.

    “Hoax” is Trumpspeak for “yes, I did that horrifying thing, but don’t believe your lying eyes”

  16. Trump is the most unpatriotic President in the history of America!

  17. History will not be kind to Trump and his cronies Gop

    • I just hope Trump can do *something* good so it won’t be so bad.

    • Any veteran who votes for Donald has forgotten why they served. Donnie could care less about you, your service to country or for your fallen comrades in arms.

    • @The Blade Trump has opened the eyes of so many people just this year. I hope people are finally able to see the truth.

      @The Blade — how could any veteran support a draft dodging cowardly POS like Trump in the first place

    Ones again Trump is lying to the American people.

  19. Andres Miguel Cervantes | June 30, 2020 at 11:35 AM | Reply

    Trump: “if it’s Intel on Russia I don’t want to hear it.”

    Trump is a Russian asset.

  20. All roads lead to Trump’s creditors in Russia, and Vladimir Putin.

      And an unreleased tape that he asked Comey about, and then repeatedly told Comey, didn’t exist.
