    The funny part is Trump doomed himself he demanded all votes counted he basically screwed himself LOL.

      He will start to realize that if he walks away he can milk this and make money of his wining
      If he ask for a recount he will prove that he lost beyond any doubt
      Trump wants doubt

    • AbuHamid al-Ghazali | November 5, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

      That’s right. When all the late votes are counted he’ll lose.

    • Trump is being hung on his own petard.

    • Lotta Sunshine | November 5, 2020 at 5:19 PM | Reply

      @philosophicalreason – Actually, he said to stop the vote in one state and count it in another. He also wants a recount in 2 or 3 states. There’s no logic in Trumpworld.

    • Anyone listening to a word Trump says about any state’s election law is wasting their time. The only thing that matters us what the election officials is each state say.

  2. Stop testing for alcohol, it might lead to more drunk driving arrests. Stop testing for the virus, in might lead to more sick people. Stop counting the votes, it might lead to TRUMP going to JAIL..

  3. Listen to James, he is as knowledgeable as they come when it comes to political contests.

    • AmericanGiant100 | November 5, 2020 at 1:31 PM | Reply

      Yup. What makes James so good is even though he is no doubt “Pro Dems”, he can analyze national political trends in America as good as anyone over the past 25-30 years or so. His gift is that he talks in language almost anyone can understand. Whether they are Political ” Lifers” in DC to almost all Truck Drivers in Middle America.

    • @AmericanGiant100 Yes! And that is the most important thing to many Americans. Talk to us with understanding, open to questions, ….don’t talk at us. 💩 It is the electoral college that makes the President, not necessarily us Americans. We put the faith in the electors that they vote the way the popular vote goes

      I love James Carville! He’s not your typical White Southerner that follows everyone else because just because they are White and Republican.

      @Beverly Huttinger There are “dumb” and “smart” guys among all Americans.

    Joe Biden will win the electoral college AND the popular vote.
    He will be a more legitimate president on his first day than Trump has ever been in 4 years.

  5. Batman is Mexican | November 5, 2020 at 1:15 PM | Reply

    🤔 vote for the guy who doesn’t have over 200 Russian connections

  6. It’s funny how Trump wants to win when he has dumped so much hate division and lies and still can’t believe people believe his lies

    • @lee Harvey you meant Hunter Biden whom got thrown out of military and the guy got a smoking pipes in one of his photo

    • Trump is so Paranoid ,he doesn’t watch Football Games . Because every time they go into a Huddle , he thinks they are talking about him .

    • Is the same as you believe joe Biden always lie.

    • Socially Disconnected | November 5, 2020 at 8:33 PM | Reply

      Yes you’re right because he burned all of those cities… I’m an independent and even I know that your statement is stupid

    • @Derek Toqbie say what happened to the 600 Mexicans kids evacuated from the advancing 4000 santa ana troops besides gathering houstons troops wiping them out in 14 minutes,? News reports said zip in NYC because Mexicans. Still .?

  7. I like the part where t’rump is suing some states to stop the count but is suing others to keep the count going. 🤔😅😂

    • @marti-grecia Odalyz the founding farther’s didn’t want fraudulent elections. Count the LEGAL and AUTHENTIC votes. If Biden gets away with this theft then he will always be known as a fake president who stole the election.

    • @Proctor’s Gamble right, Democrats are never hypocritical😂

    • @Terrier Queen There is no “c” in Bush, lol. Man you people are dumb😂😂😂 Busch is the beer and the amusement park. Bush was the president and he was a great one.

    • President Busch, lmao😂 omg.

    • marti-grecia Odalyz | November 5, 2020 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      @Danimal wait-how can you say that Biden is getting away with theft, when even if that were to true, Trump has done more thievery tenfold? are you blind? what’s missing here?

  8. The only guy in the country I can trust calling an election!

  9. Mister Sarajevo | November 5, 2020 at 1:31 PM | Reply

    Carville knows what he’s talking about, people.

    He’s not being cocky!

  10. “What about the Trump voters when he loses?” They didn’t give AF about us when they won, so who cares?

    • @High Vibrations Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have been saying this for a while now. This kind of sentiment is how we ended up here in the first place. We have to be fighters from now on.

    • @Jason Boyce you could not have said it better. This ain’t candyland

    • @Michael Robinson There is still a flag and a country and a constitution to love and fight for. And the rule of law and our 4th amendment protections. And the world, which we had previously taken under our mantle of conscience and dignity.
      I voted for Joe Biden! And 🙂

      @High Vibrations this black american agrees.. break them MAGAs back if you can.. they dont givea fizzzuck. They laughed with the amy barrett confirmation and blocking merrick. i wouldnt give them an inch.

      @Laura Sanchez

      The white supremacists — backed by Drumpf — instigated violence everywhere they went.


      So … you might want to dig a bit deeper, Sunshine.

    James from your mouth to God’s ears.

  12. When I think that near to 50% of US citizens think that Trump is a good choice is just baffling.

    • Steven Griffin | November 5, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Yeah – call it what want , looks and sounds very cult .

    • That man is a dem hack. I read all these comments and you call republicans uneducated, but you love the vote from the black comunity that you have kept uneducated for a hundred year’s with your Democrat policy, this is far from over.

    • Richard Shelton | November 5, 2020 at 10:17 PM | Reply

      It helps him to have an official propaganda channel in Faux “News”. Ask anyone trained in disseminating propaganda. Faux News is textbook propaganda.

    • @Maryella why do you assume that I don’t know how that feels. You are very quick to make judgements. All I originally stated was trumps core supporters and you went on this rant accusing me of first being hateful and now insensitive. Where are you getting this warped perspective from?

    • @Little Orphan Annie wow and you say Republicans are hateful!
      I am not a Trump fan, never have been so don’t expect me to defend anything he does.
      So here is the opposite end of your spectrum–half of the country embraces ripping babies apart.

      *Half the country is fine with the destruction of the African American family by giving financial incentives.*

      *Half the country embraces Dozens of shooting deaths in Chicago every weekend with a shoulder shrug.*

      *Half the country is fine with literally ruining a person’s life if they DARE to have an opinion that is not “woke” enough.”

      Sorry darling, the left does not take a back seat here. Have a nice night now.

  13. MAGA: Morons Are Going Away !!!

    • @Robert Martyr trump is going away what will u sell your soul for next when he’s gone js

      So you agree you’re a moron?

      @Robert Martyr

      So here’s another twerp proud to be a moron.

      Only a Republican can take a devastating insult and turn it into a badge of honor.


      1/ deserving strong condemnation.
      2/ shockingly bad in quality.


      1/ very stupid person
      2/ dated, now offensive : a person affected with mild intellectual disability

      I’m wondering if the American experiment really *is* a failure — because the Founding Fathers anticipated *deplorable morons* and wondered if they were capable of voting responsibly.


      “The mob begin to think and reason, poor reptiles . . . They bask in the sun, and ere noon they will bite, depend on it.”
      – Governeur Morris

      “[The American people] …must learn to distinguish between oppression, and the necessary exercise of lawful authority.”
      – George Washington

    • Damm thats a good line 👏

  14. This man’s confident is very strong.

  15. Pennsylvania = Stop the Vote! Arizona = Count the Vote = Wisconsin = Recount the Vote! Hypocrisy = Pricelessssss…

    • @Laura Sanchez But the ballots have to be postmarked on Nov. 3rd. The mail may be slow. That’s why they’re allowing extra days.

    • @Mauda 3133 Funny you bring up Hillary. Last I recall Hillary stopped the recounts because they were heavily favoring Trump (something like an extra 200k votes into Trump’s favor). So thanks for proving Trump’s case right. It’s all a repeat (except even worse) of 2016. Even if Trump somehow loses Arizona which should be impossible based off of the current numbers given for Maricope, he still wins after the Wisconsin recount. Precincts reporting over 100% voter turnout to registered voters, some cities having 90+% voter turnout (which is impossible). Huge vote dumps that 100% favor Biden in the middle of the night when both states said they were stopping voting and kicked out poll watchers?

      Yep 100% not rigged guys… too bad the Attorney General (which was elected by Obama just so everyone knows) is talking about investigating these major cases of voter fraud in multiple states.

      I’m not a fan of either party, but the republicans know they didn’t lose the election. This is the most rigged election of my lifetime.

      @Laura Sanchez do you have any proof that dogs signs a ballot, dead people vote etc? the problem with you is you make something up and believe it as fact. Im waiting for you url links to prove what you are saying

    • @Laura Sanchez Source?

    • @Tysons Accosta love it!

  16. Hearing from Mr Carville at election time is a tradition-an institution! He always cuts right thru the &@$@ Thank you my friend and stay safe!

  17. I love James Carville. I’ve been watching him for 30 years. I hope he is correct. I pray he is correct.

  18. I’M CALLING IT: James Carville is a national treasure

  19. To the people counting votes no matter who they are , They deserve plenty of credit! Please take care of them !

    • Exactly

    • I know! Can you imagine the size of the workload they are processing?! Big thanks for their hard work!

    • They deserve a beer and maybe more !!

    • Thank You for saying that….one of my friends worked at the polls and one of the scanners broke After about 8Thousand votes were placed in it, so they had to rescan them All Over…I’m in NY and all our votes have been counted, but still can you imagine the pressure these wkrs are under, then to question their accuracy on top of that is Terrible….there were wkrs in PA who worked All Night & was Still there well into this afternoon, and you know there’s some ”overseer” somewhere walking back & fourth asking them every few minutes ”how many have the counting, Hurry Up, how many more are left etc”…so ppl Need to just have some GD patience…Whoever wins, DT is Still(sadly)the President for a few More months…

      @toya adams Yes, a shout out to the poll workers and the county elections folks who went far beyond their pay grade. They are real patriots, no matter their political affiliations.

  20. I don’t want Trump to win, but whether he wins or loses it’s been revealed that 49% of Americans are fine with the circus.

    • I just said that to my girlfriend earlier. That’s the startling reality of it all. It’s sad

    • Caesar recognized the uneducated populous as a crude dangerous mob. His quote was: “Give them their bread and their circuses.”
      In modern terms: (Let them earn enough to have a six-pack and a TV. They will be lulled into a stupor and be more manageable.)

    • Thats disturbing
