  1. vote early or November 3rd…
    vote for integrity…
    common sense…
    and basic human decency…

  2. #45 – more delusional than King George.

  3. Great generals know who to pick as US President.

  4. After Biden wins I hope they remove Trump with extreme prejudice and in such a manner that no other president will ever be stupid enough to pull this crap again.

      We will all just forget till a new Trump like con man comes along. Look at Nixon, everyone peacefully forgot about his reign of terror till Trump came along.

  5. The thought of Trump getting dragged out of the White House by the secret service that guards him everyday… just puts a big smile on my face.

    • @Ryan Gennaro Gee, imagine being “butt hurt” about a President who consistently self-deals, takes bribes from foreign governments, violates the human rights and human dignity of those fleeing violence in their own country and asking for refuge, commits tax fraud, bank fraud, money laundering, endangers the health of EVERY American, and is PERSONALLY responsible for the DEATHS of over 220,000 American Citizens. I can’t imagine why people want him gone, really.

    • Would put a smile in theirs to going by comments some have made anonymously.
      That he regularly puts them in danger of the virus which many have caught .
      Due to his coronavirus rallies and joy rides .

    • Me too! I think that would be right up there with having my first baby! I can imagine finding out, getting into my vehicle, and honking the horn while driving all around the city, maybe even having banners and streamers on the vehicle!!!!!! I may even be playing parade music as loudly as I can! 😁😀😷🙌🙆👍👍👏👏👏

      @Ryan Gennaro It’s not being “butt hurt about who is president”. Under him we’ve had 215,000 Americans die of COVID. We’ve had civil unrest unlike anything for decades. We’ve had the worst economic quarter since the Great Depression. Remember when Republicans used to blame Obama for the price of gas? Why don’t you want to hold this president accountable for what has happened under his administration?

    • @Ryan Gennaro
      His incompetence has costs many thousands of lives .
      Caused many families grief.

  6. Trump is spooked because people are voting now & they are not voting for him.

  7. The Army will step in; trump will be arrested, tried, and sent to prison for a long time.

  8. Putin is having a great time waiting for Trump to hand him all of America’s secrets!!!

  9. Trump won’t be getting special treatment. If he loses, he will be shown the door. There’s nothing he can do about that.

    • @UCcdVuorLUU5MnsDtwwIWKeg Did you make your acct just for this video?

    • 100%. The GOP will TURN ON HIM. Guaranteed. Regardless of identity politics, both Reps & Dems want a peaceful transition of power. I guarantee his GOP Senators will accept the results before he does! They know dam well they want to keep this country in tact. Again this is all hypothetical. If and only if Trump loses.

    • rose d

      That’s so cute. Unfortunately it’s not up to you. By law he has to leave office in January next year, if he loses the election. It is what it is.

      Well actually there is a lot of things he can do.

  10. My God a POW for 7 years I can’t imagine the resolve needed not to break. That General is a soldier’s soldier! When the call came he dodged it in order not to serve his country!

    Texas early voting starts tomorrow morning!
    Biden Harris 2020!!!!

  12. I find it strange that the general public need to be convinced that trump is plain dangerous is so many ways

  13. The GOP has enabled these crazy responses of an insane man. America has been betrayed by the GOP!

    _NOTE! This is an old style broadside not a “Tweet”. As this is not Twitter. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you are deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, read on._

    *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!*
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon:*

    👉 *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    👉 *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉 *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉 *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉 *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉 *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    👉 *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    👉 *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER*

    *The case against the President is prima facie inasmuch as:*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    *FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!*

    *THEREFORE:*
    *IN ORDER TO RENDER THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN TERRIBLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE*

    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing.

    *AND IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United States or abroad by design or effect that suppresses, deters, delays, denies, manipulates, interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE AND REPLACE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

  15. I like POTUS that don’t get the virus. Trump’s Karma virus.

  16. Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🎂

    When will Americans learn ?

  17. Trump endorsements: Taliban and Osama Bin Laden’s family…Biden endorsements: 4 star republican general and POW war hero John McCain’s family. Who do you trust more?

  18. Trump only believes in “law & order” when it’s applied to you and me, but NOT  for him and his henchmen like Roger Stone, and Mike Flynn. This is commonly known as a dictatorship.

    But I want to see Trump  keep that same positive attitude about law & order when law & order finally comes for him.
    I suspect that on that day, Trump will be wearing an NWA t-shirt (Narcissists With Attitudes) that says “f—- the police!!!” 😄

  19. And that bone spur traitor will attack this general just like he did with John McCain and fallen soldiers. Disgusting.

  20. What Trump needs to understand, is that there WILL be a transfer of power. This transfer of power will either take place the easy way, the normal way, the decent way, the democratic way, OR, if Trump is so inclined, it will take place the hard way, the Old Testament way. But make no mistake, there will be a transfer of power.
