  2. I can understand why a Nationalist or White Supremacist would vote for Trump, … because Trump himself is a racist, just like his father. And I can _(almost)_ understand why someone like a Coal Miner would vote for Trump if he promised them the dignity of a job, even though they know it’s a false promise. And I can _(almost)_ understand how the ‘Double-Haters’ might vote for Trump as the perceived lesser of two evils. I don’t agree, but at least I can fathom why.

    But I cannot fathom how someone would vote for Trump out of perceived financial self-interest and sell your country for a red hat; nor Evangelicals who would vote for a man who uses the Bible as a prop, attacks women, and rapes a 13yr-old girl; nor the Active Military or Veterans after Helsinki, Kurds, Germany (McCain, McMaster, Comey, McCabe, Mattis, Vindman, Yovanovitch, multiple Inspectors General’s, et al) and The Bounties – who took an oath to _‘defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic’;_ *_Nor_* how anyone could vote for a person who sees the Pandemic through a pair of Red and Blue colored glasses; who gives praise to criminals and traitors; who subverts our right to free and fair elections that are without interference from foreign governments; who seeks the council of television personalities; who sells canned goods from the Oval Office; who publicly bullies members of his own Medical Team, and instead believes Witch Doctors. But finally, I cannot understand how anyone could vote for a person who does not love our county; who loves only himself. And this does not even speak to the +20,000 lies and misrepresentations.

    • @Verruca Well said.

    • @Verruca they are sick minded morons with no understanding of what it means to be human
      and feel sorry for the people who have died or lost everything because of the pandemic.

      @John Godleywe as a nation can’t agree on what’s fact. With 2 main stream corporate bias media sources, you get a nation with 2 realities. Also, those are bots & trolls not actual people. Look for repetitive talking points usually just worded differently from account to account

    • @tom t well said!

    Who`s going to interfere in this year`s election? Trump, Barr and the new Post Master General. Ask me something hard.

    You can already see the disinformation campaign at work.

  5. Vittoria Natale | August 5, 2020 at 3:45 PM | Reply

    You’re questioning today was great Senator Durban. It’s a distraction from the GOP.

  6. Trump has been denying election interference for years. of course we’re not ready for it.

  7. If it was so easy for china to stop it why can’t he stop it so easily

  8. The ONLY election interference is from the Trumpers.

      @Emsley Wyatt Already happened didn’t it? Didn’t they catch a mail stuffing Trumpster Federal Post employee? If they can spot an incompetent shitster like that, don’t you think that however skewed politically the GOP can attempt it, it will not be discovered? Shame is that the new PMG has paid hundreds of thousands to get his foetid claws into a potentially ripe privatisation, and a total disfiguration of a Constitutional buttress that ensures ‘one person one vote’.

    • and Trump.

      Whether running for track and field or for the world record frankfurter eater, declaration of intent to cheat or history of cheating is automatically disqualifying. Americans are not desperate enough yet to realize they’re not powerless. Gonna take 300,000 dead? That’s where were going.

  9. So Trump think that China could have easily stopped the pandemic, while he himself is totally incapable of stopping it.
    Trump: “it is what it is”.

      @Jock Young Trump’s fans are bereft of original thinking. Every talking point they have, they stole from liberals (‘fake news’ etc’). It’s the same with book writing or songs. Right wingers just don’t have the gene for originality.

      I’m looking forward to the debates!!

    • @David Gainey At least the liberals are thinking. Get your head out of your a**.

    • Trump cut funding to CDC sites in China a month before the outbreak. He did that on purpose and considering he’s got a bunch of Davos mercenaries plying his methodology it wouldn’t be a surprise that they made sure there was an outbreak. These fascists are doomed. If they escape the US we are waiting for them.

    • @Fitness first CPT Do not give them an inch for they will take your lives.

  10. Yeah donald dump is working on it now.
    Sabotaging the U.S postal service.
    The safest way to vote.
    He is attacking the mail.

      @John Edward How do I find mine? I need some guidance if you can…

    • @Franchesca ONeal I assume you have a computer since you posted here. Look up where your COUNTY COURTHOUSE IS. Find their website. They should have a whole section on voting, request an absentee or mail in ballot. There are a lot of RED STATES that are purposely making it hard to get a ballot, CALL THEM IF YOU CAN…….THE GOP PLAINLY DOES NOT WANT A FAIR ELECTION……they know the will lose. THEY HAVE ALWAYS COUNTED ON KEEPING MINORITIES FROM THE POLLS……

  11. Putin: “I can’t help you win if mail in voting has a paper trail.”
    t’rump: “What do I need to do?”
    Putin: “Stop America from voting by mail.”
    t’rump: “I’ll do it. Thanks boss!”

    • @Ro G It’s fine with his supporters because they are getting “socialist” payouts/bailouts from the trade wars Bunker Boy started. Farmers are making more $ than when they were farmers. They should get back to work 😉

    • @Maria Yniguez Nyet comrade!

    • @TheInternet0987 Grey Run the country into the ground? Looks like you are already there!

      @Sharon Brown Why because of the riots? That happens all the time.

    • @Jock Young They have and they will try again because Trump hasn’t paid off the Ukraine deal he signed with Vlad yet. And the only way Don can pay it off is by taking up another 4 years of federal decision making.

  12. McConnell: “i’ve got nothing to contribute. my gops in the senate are in disarray. when the adults come up with a plan and trump signals he’ll sign, i’ll hop on board.”

    Durbin nailed it: “We don’t have the leadership in this country to deal with a serious problem.”

    • I’ve noticed that so many times, like when teachers were striking a couple years ago. As in, better hope no one in Washington gets involved because no one there seems to know how to do anything anymore.

    • He is talking about himself

    • You will when Bidden, an Rice turn up.

    • @cc 1k That’s quite informative. The Doncon and the venal part of his family have been making little strikes on democracy for a long time. Some say he didn’t really want the presidency but that is an unfortunate but divisively placed distraction. He is evil incarnate and thus desperate to get his throne.

  15. Agree with Sen Drubin that we need to solve the problems at home first, and we need a real leader to effectively deal with China.

    Hey China, if your listening – could you find Donald Trump’s tax returns….

    “They” should have stopped it” but when it comes to tRump stopping it, “it is what it is” wtf?

    • According to trump, China should have stopped it. Why can’t the US stop it now? Does that mean trump thinks China is superior to the US in their ability to stop the virus?

    • theWZZA must be because China is doing much better then the USA, actually several countries are doing much better then the USA, even when there is a shared border.

    • @Teresa S Yes and we’re terrified they’ll open it and stupid will pour in.

    Barr is interfering in the election……………….WHO WILL HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE?

  20. The only solution to this problem, is by throwing Donald Trump out of office…
