  1. Get out & vote & put an end to the dystopian nightmare that is Trumpism.

      @vote red Trump 2020 melanin tramp has his fingers and is putin in donna trump stinky fingered trump
      PRISON FOR TREASON TRAITOR trump 2020 ✊🏿

      Wait! You think Trump made his money by working hard?! You haven’t heard about all the contractors he screwed over and never paid? You haven’t heard about how he defrauded his own charity for kids with cancer and military vets? You haven’t heard about how he scammed the “students” at Trump “University?” Real billionaires don’t hawk steaks and vodkas.

    • @Decker Wonders
      You sound like an arrogant, juvenile teenager.

    • @Ben O. Verbich
      You do realize that “liberalism” is the support for laissez-faire free market economic practices, right? You know, the free market ideology espoused by conservatives every day? No? Thought not.

    This is what America is this country has no soul and its being exposed but there is hope let the voices of everyone be heard and a winner we be declared

  3. America’s democracy is under siege by our own president.

      @Asher’s Tribe Assimilate to who’s values? The Proud boys? The KKK? Trump’s? I lived in the US from 1965 to 2017. I have lived through parts of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam war, Nixon, Iraq x2 wars and Trump was the straw that broke the camels back. I would have proudly applied for US citizenship, had Bernie Sanders become President. Oh, and I also was in the Oregon Army National Guard for over six years.
      I now live in the Philippines. When I go out for a drive, there isn’t a cop on every other street corner hoping to catch me doing something wrong.
      Our list of freedoms (though different) is longer than that of the US. Home of the brave? Our people are just as brave or actually braver than most Americans. Bravery is not measured by the size of your gun.
      Racism? I’m the only Caucasian in a radius of several miles, and feel perfectly at home and very well respected.
      Spare me the bs, please.

    • Asher’s Tribe | October 21, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      @Walter Lichtenberg American values. I don’t know where you people live that there are just racists and cops sitting on every corner beating people. That is such a made up nonsense lie. Enjoy Asia dude, America is the greatest country on Earth no questions asked. I’m proud to live here and I want to see a better country left to my children. You’re obviously better off not being here because you’re some how jaded or weren’t able to amount to anything and you’re angry at everyone else for it. That’s why you’re clambering for a socialist moron like Bernie? Good grief, that’s as unAmerican as you can get. Enjoy the Philippines creep.

    • @Dave
      Aww! Bullcrap.

    • @Asher’s Tribe
      I wish America was the “greatest country on earth.” We’re way down the scale on multiple measures; education, healthcare, child mortality, longevity, quality of life. Blind patriotism is no substitute for reality. We haven’t been the “greatest country on earth” for a long time.

    • Asher’s Tribe | October 21, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @keir farnum I understand where you’re coming from, yes there is a lot to improve on. However we are the most free country on the planet, able to pursue any venture in life. The greatest technology and science still largely comes from the United States. I think there is a serious downfall of parenting and holding children to standards. There is also a horrible problem with terrible schools. Schools should compete just the same as any corporation and children should be allowed to attend any school they like. Competition feeds quality. Again policies this administration is pushing.

    He is working for a civil war, but wants a nobel peace prize.

    • Walter Lichtenberg | October 21, 2020 at 8:23 PM | Reply

      Who nominated him? The Proud boys? KKK? No normal intelligent person or group would nominate him.

    • Walter Lichtenberg | October 21, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

      @Bruce Smith Okay, I take the bait. Explain exactly how.

    • @Blue Dog wrong on both points. Why are you lying? Ratcliffe stated and it was confirmed that new york post and guiliani were not using data supplied by Russia.

    • Walter Lichtenberg | October 21, 2020 at 8:38 PM | Reply

      @Chris Kaufmqn Let’s set something straight once and for all.
      What I listen to is my business and not yours. That’s the short version.
      When I listen, or watch the news, from whatever source, I compare it with other sources where possible. When I listen to opinions, including yours, I make up my own mind.
      I have listened to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Donald Trump, and now you. So, f#*k off. Got it?
      You are a cult member, and part of the problem.

    • @Bruce Smith Ratcliffe is Trump’s political dog
      “Intelligence Experts Suspicious of DNI Ratcliffe On Laptop Story” “Obviously, Ratcliffe isn’t a credible voice, and it seems pretty clear he’s just playing the political role he was appointed for in the first place.” https://www.defenseone.com/threats/2020/10/intelligence-experts-suspicious-dni-ratcliffe-laptop-story/169378/

    Q weirdos got it right… Lots of arrests are coming! They just didn’t think it was them 😂😂

  7. Where is the FBI in this? I hope they are tracking and ARRESTING those intimidating voters.

  8. Self praise is no praise.

    • I’m old enough where me teachers would say ‘self praise is no recommendation’ apparently lacking his father’s praise but giving himself one is something he’s used to😔😔😔🤬

    • @Sandra E.
      No excuses smh. He’s a textbook MALIGNANT Narcissist with Sociopathy & dangerous! This is what they do & has zero to do with childhood!

    • @elc I would say it had an absolutely amazing amount to do with his childhood. Most mental emotional disorders can be linked back to learnt behaviour at a very young age. Obviously someone like Trump doesn’t even think or consider his behaviour in any way different to the way others think. He doesn’t know how others think and he believes his thoughts and actions are normal, as he will have surrounded himself with people who think like him. People surround themselves with others that think the same as them at the deepest level. The narcissist will shake his head and not understand the person who does charity work for instance so they won’t want to be around that sort of person as they are not in their tribe etc.

    • This monster trumpo is going to start a civil war. Thank you Republican senators for your cowardness b.s. all of u should go straight to salutary confinement

    Does he know he didn’t actually win a noble peace prize

    • @thenspeakonit other presidents would mention it.

    • Spelled N-o-b-e-l.

    • Exactly! Furthermore, for a nomination alone, the barrier to entry is low: all nominations from heads of state or politicians serving at a national level are accepted and require no invitation. Frankly speaking, all past US presidents have been eligible for nomination. This by no means, mean that Trump is at all worthy for the prize or any type of attention media or not! Huge difference! Lol.

    • With 222,221 deaths (as shown in this news report)
      Trump is a shoe-in to receive this year’s
      — Nobel ‘Rest In Peace’ Prize —

    • @thenspeakonit
      Are you talking about Trump’s “peace deal” between two countries that weren’t even at war with each other? The one that completely ignored the main issue in the Middle East; the Palestinians? You mean that bogus “peace deal?”

  10. Russell Berwick | October 21, 2020 at 1:27 PM | Reply

    Did Trump make peace when he deserted the Kurds and left them to die? When everyone ran from ISIS but they stood, and this is how we repay them?

  11. Unless there is a Nobel prize for BS he won’t be getting one.

    • @Greg Coogan Then why is Trump giving his nominations so much gravitas? Let it go.

    • HarleyHilderson | October 21, 2020 at 2:06 PM | Reply

      LOL good one!

    • Only beats chest and brags about
      how “great” he is. No plan for nation. The bullsh*t potus.

    • Daren Halfpenny | October 21, 2020 at 2:23 PM | Reply

      Being nominated for a Nobel Prize is no more difficult than getting a Doctor’s letter! Winning it, on the other hand…

    • @Daren Halfpenny Exactly! For a nomination alone, the barrier to entry is low: all nominations from heads of state or politicians serving at a national level are accepted and require no invitation. Frankly speaking, all past US presidents have been eligible for nomination. This by no means, mean that Trump is at all worthy for the prize. Huge difference. Lol.

  12. He sounds so stupid, I can’t even stand it.

    Stay in line no matter how long it takes your vote matters.

    • @p k thanks haha

      Do me a favor, if Biden wins, at least be open to looking into Hunter stuff. My life doesn’t end if either candidate gets elected but nobody has denied the authenticity of the emails or laptop.

    • @thenspeakonit people keep saying proven to be authentic but haven’t seen anything. You have info? I wont criticize your source, just curious

    • You are soooooooo right. I voted in Texas on the 13th. We have got to get Trump out of office. Proud Boys are not they only one with a gun and I don’t look at my emails. Weat your madk, social distance and use yiu hand sanitizer; take a chair, a book, and something to eat. This is ridiculous that people have to stand in line for more than 30 minutes to vote. I made sure my voice was heard though. The Democrats should be able to do something about this. We cannot let them win though! This is voter suppression at its best! Keep the faith! God will prevail! God hear our prayers!🙏🏽🙏🏽

    • *If there’s voter intimidation:*
      You have the right to vote in peace!

      How come they don’t put out chairs?

  14. He just told his followers how he was more concerned about his nomination than the floods and yet they support him.

  15. “I am nominated for three different Nobel Peace Prices.” – Jesus Christ, this is a stupid people.
    In truth, of course, Mr. Trump was only nominated for one Nobel Peace Prize, but the Norwegians told him that in Bokmål, Nynorsk and Høgnorsk, and he just mixed it up.

    • Also it doesn’t take a lot to be nominated. The conditions of qualified nominators isn’t exactly an exclusive club — pretty much any sympathetic university professor or national government official will do. They go through hundreds of nominations a year, and most of them are just high-ranking randos trying to spotlight their policy by nominating someone who embodies that rather than, you know, actual peace.

    • Thank you. I thought it was 1.

    he is in Iowa, telling the people of Iowa that their misery is nothing compared to his undeserved Ego

    • His taint-licking followers just eat it up!

      That’s the president of our country
      The United States of America
      I’m sorry for everything I know you’re all suffering to get through
      We need to vote them OUT
      It’s not supposed to be like this
      We are all citizens of the same country
      We should all understand when others are suffering

    • I hope the USA gets universal healthcare like most advanced countries in South Africa they have universal healthcare and if you can afford private healthcare you get private healthcare a private ward etc

  17. Those who Cage Little Kids want
    Nobel Prizes……😂

    I could care less if the hunter Biden story is true. There’s a pandemic that’s still going on and this is his top priority?? A big distraction

  19. Why aren’t there “proud boys” being arrested — oh yeah … Barr is too busy acting as T rump’s personal attorney.

    • Who are proud boys??? Can they stand back and stand by for America since he thinks we will need them in the future? For, you know, the peace?

  20. He wants Biden investigated but yet he hasn’t even showed his tax returns.
