  1. What do people expect when a White Supremacist is occupying the White House.

    • Tim Daugherty | June 2, 2020 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      Sure they are an issue. To be handled by due process when the incident happens. Burning and looting the very businesses that are in our neighborhoods is an even greater issue.

    • @Tim Daugherty My ‘beliefs’ are that we shouldn’t have an incompetent sociopath as POTUS. Y’all are all ‘law and order’ until it doesn’t serve your needs. Bunch of entitled hypocrites. Let’s see what you have to say when Trump is voted out. Y’all have a history of conveniently ignoring the law when it cuts against your preferences. And you still haven’t explain why you think a citizen should be doing more than the POTUS to resolve multiple national crises?

    • @W McKinley or you could try to hear about whats going on in hillarys hearing today, or find out things like when pelosi is going to show up at work
      or where antifa will strike next
      or wonder what all of this is going to do to your precious covid #s . america #1 riiiight?

  2. When Trump talks about “being a jerk”; people should listen – he is the expert.

    • Pritzker is a fat jerk

    • Sad to watch , you guys have to stand up and vote , I feel so bad for your country bc. Sick narcissistic man is running your country. Looks like he is pushing for dictatorship. God bless people in US …. hope you vote him out otherwise he will keep having his reality show in a White House for another 4 years

    • @Hoan Nguyen Dude why are you even watching and commenting on this channel,go watch FOX NEWS and comment there..
      OH WAIT,they turned off their comment section

    • FBI and Twitter have traced some of the so-called Antics tweets about organising riots to the White Nationalists.

      @Allan Burns agree with you 👍I am proud to be anti facist. 😎

  3. He is 100% talking like a Dictator…

      @Arturo Garza A violation of the Impoundment Control Act is not a minor technicality. At the height of the Watergate scandal in 1974, Congress passed the law to prevent a rogue president like Richard Nixon from withholding lawfully appropriated funds. A president who seeks to put a hold on such funds for policy purposes must transmit to both the House and Senate “a special message” specifying “the amount of budget authority which he proposes to be rescinded or which is to be so reserved” and “the reasons why the budget authority should be rescinded or is to be so reserved

      @William H Music 2020 Well looks like they’re going to get it.

    • @Robert Malkin I think you need to do some research on dictators… also Trump has ALWAYS showed great admiration for dictators like Putin and Kim Jung Un… and disdain for democratic leaders (including US closest allies). This alone should have raised alarms.

    • @Deb C 1. Well he wants to use Military force (in a way that is actually illegal for him to), to deal with protesters that don’t need to be dealt with with such potentially deadly force. Again, its ILLEGAL for him to use the military this way, and something you only ever see Dictators do…
      2. This after tweeting ”when the looting starts the shooting starts”. Which is not only a dictatorial call to violence but also not a legal thing for him to encourage. Again, only dictators do this.
      3. He can do all these illegal things because he is now WELL above the law… which also only dictators can claim to be.
      4. He is now well above the law because he replaced everyone in the white house with people who are woefully incompetent at the job they were hired for (think Betsy Devos)… but will do anything Trump tells them to. Something which ALL Dictators do.
      5. He lies constantly about everything and anything he does is for his own financial benefit or that of his donors… absolutely nothing he does is for the American people (think tax cuts for the rich after tax cuts for the rich after tax cuts for the rich and on and on in only these past years…). `
      6. Meanwhile he calls the world pandemic a hoax and downplays it for months until hundreds of thousands of American drop like flies for no reason besides Trump admin did absolutely nothing to stop it. AND he calls for people to go back to work and everything to open again when you guys are now the world epicenter of the disease and are months behind all other 1st world countries in dealing with it. Asking for the people to ”die for the stock market”, after letting things go so wrong that hundreds of thousands (if not eventually millions) of people will die needlessly… is also a very dictatorial thing.
      Honestly I could go on and on, from his self-proclaimed LOVE of Kim Jung Un and him trusting Putin before his own (former) US security officials etc etc.

  4. He calls governors weak while hiding in his bunker..😂😂😂

    • He’s the one that’s hiding!Whos the weak one?What a pathetic president.

    • Bend Bend and calls himself a military man even if he refused to fight for his own country ! He is nothing short of a whoopy cushion : with NIL to offer the US!

    • Miguel Noches trump has No strength in his actions …. he is a liar, a fraud and will forever be known for the evil turd that he is … he will be remembered along with Hitler snd Xi! Trump is evil … get rid of him now!

    • nick woodward 😂😂 he is a whoopy cushion and right now – one of the most hated men on the planet! He has bought nothing but shame

    • tjampman 😂😂😂😂. Shame he didn’t stay inside – then one on the many honorable folk at the WH could of slipped the bolt across! The end

    As a former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau once said: “We are sleeping next to an elephant”

  6. “Put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again” that sound absolutely right. Put Trump and his sheep in jail for 10 years so we never see their ignorant racism again.

  7. We the People all know who needs to go to jail for ten years.

  8. Never heard “he doesn’t understand” so many times IN MY LIFE….geez

  10. One thing a narcissist does well is name call.

    The president knows exactly what he’s doing. The man wants a civil war.

    • Matthew McDermit | June 3, 2020 at 12:45 PM | Reply

      @Blue Moose, you are preaching to the choir. I understand this. In any case, it was refreshing to read a well written and informed comment.

    • @Matthew McDermit Thanks, back at you, you’re usually spot on. Upon closer consideration, my example was questionable, since it really depended on your viewpoint as to whether the Federal troops were being used in a state or invading a foreign nation (CSA.) I have always found it interesting that the Statue on the dome of The White House was selected by Jefferson Davis in the 1850’s.

      99% of Republicans own the guns and ammo would be bad idea for the left

    • How does he wants civil dimwit ?

    • TheFormalMooshroom | June 4, 2020 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      @Jerri Jenkins You are assuming that all Republicans back this buffoon and his bid to be a dictator which I would argue is not the case, not all of them at least.

    And meanwhile the banks continue to “loot”
    the people with no end in sight.

    The nation is in trouble I am praying for unity

    • We’ll be fine. As soon as people wake up and realize these events are being done deliberately to divide and conquer us.

  16. Let’s look at the police who inciting the violence.

  17. He’s angry because his enablers of 3 years are now conspicuous in their silence and the governors are not doing what he wants.

    • Hazel Em no better time for the 25th amendment ! Most dangerous resistive president ever ! He must go and he must go now !

    *Trump knows more than anyone about looking like a jerk.*

  19. Irene Zimmerman | June 2, 2020 at 4:11 PM | Reply

    😒 Trump’s just trying to be like his dictator friends, what a child.

  20. The governors are people just like the people who elected them. If there is a single person in any state, territory, or other place under the US jurisdiction… They should hold the same weight as being the governor of that area calling upon the President to deploy the military.
