    The fact that his approval rating isn’t in the 20s is very depressing. This country has far more than its fair share of stupid, unsympathetic people.

      peachion2 side note since you remember the 50s …. is it bizarre that I’m a 30 year old black man who would prob not have liked living in the 50s in America but has a weird obsession with old school Americana during that time? I guess I’m a vintage junkie lol

    • JusticeTV it didn’t need to be rebuilt. Trump has done nothing for the military. He considers them toy soldiers to use so he can appear tough.

    • N Allen Conservatives fail to fund education, the disparage college and have encouraged talking points on how teachers are overpaid. Liberals are tolerant and open minded. We are not the ones trying to push textbooks that ignore the contributions on African Americans. We are not trying to push creationism instead of science in education. I have never heard a liberal disparage higher education or call educated people “elitist”. Look into the textbooks being pushed in Texas and other Conservative school systems that are intentionally edited to reflect a conservative and more pro-American point of view. In Conservative states there is less school funding and the lowest teacher salaries in the nation.

    • James Blue Lightning only for some. That is the problem.

    • Mister Unknown sure, there was a lot of fun from those nostalgic times. I remember that my dad was one of the few people that hired a black man for construction. As a result he was tossed out of the union. That led to years of unemployment. The American dream was never for everyone.

    I never thought I would see a president who cared about his appearance more than American Heroes. He’s a disgrace

    • This is the guy who won’t wear a mask because he thinks it makes him look weak. He doesn’t realize that he is weak and will always look weak no matter what he does. Makeup and the world’s most expensive combover won’t change that.

      @Sierra Guru T-rump is worried about his looks when in fact he looks just like a demented circus clown.

  3. Remember he also told a dead soldier’s mother “he knew what he signed up for”

    I am a 100% disabled Army Veteran, and I’m no loser.

    • Murray Allinger | September 10, 2020 at 5:18 AM | Reply

      And know that President Trump never called any U.S. veteran a loser. This is all fake news media propaganda. Nobody respects and honors you more than the current President of the United States. And he is bringing the troops home, rather than sending them into more endless wars.

    • @Marianne Flambert u have no idea what u r talking about. That has nothing to do with the help he received.

    • Marianne Flambert | September 10, 2020 at 11:42 AM | Reply

      Kathy Ehrlich you are right I have no idea of what kind of help he received as you did not give any details. However base on the fact that you said your husband is a veteran, I took the liberty to assume that he received help from the VA, as he would be entitled, and lucky him received help from Trump according to you. So be happy. Have a wonderful life.

    • @Murray Allinger it was confirmed by the Atlantic, FOX, CNN, the Washington Post, New York Times and the Associated Press. He said it and got caught and calling it fake news won’t get him out of it.

    • Thank you for your service!

  5. I was injured serving in the Marines and I would do it again. I had a medical discharge. I guess I am a sucker and loser. My great uncle died in WW2. I hate Trump with a passion.

    • Sir, I thank you for your service and that of your family, but (with all due respect) don’t waste your energy on hating the man. Narcissists crave attention! VOTE HIM OUT and then ignore him.🗽🇺🇸

    • Thank you for your service Sir. We as Americans respect your sacrifice even if our psycho in chief does not.

  6. I’d like to just take a moment to thank every single one of our veterans for their service. Without you, we would not have the freedoms we have today. God Bless You All!!!

  7. All this From a Draft Dodger . He didn’t have a sack to serve.

  8. I saw tonight that Fox news has confirmed this story.

    Let’s vote him out of office along with his Republican enablers!!

    • @Kazayan Raawban
      I wondered why I hadn’t heard back from you after that last smart bomb campaign of undisputed facts that I dropped on you? Your about time response shows how gravely weakened you have become under the weight of facts. I already responded to your comments about “top brass” or career generals in my prior response. The top brass at the pentagon is exactly what Trump said they were, endless useless wars and funding! When a house is divided for the wrong reasons it needs to be torn down, rebuilt, and restructured for the better! That is why we elected Trump to do. I do not defend Trump I challenge misinformation and lies! I thought you were intellectually deeper in your thoughts but to resort to such platitudes like Trump “taking a crap on the resolute desk” or “cutting off his nose to spite his face” demonstrates your inability to adequately challenge or disprove anything I’ve said. My comments before this were a litany of facts about Trump’s impeccable military record and the good he’s done among many other facts. I responded and or addressed with facts every question or lie you put to me bout Trump which you clearly did not do with my last post?🤔You call Trump the divider n “thief” as though any president can bring america together? What has Trump stolen? Even under Obama the country was divided. The country is divided and will always be divided as long as people rule over other people. It is human nature to have division and chaos. Trump does not attack people that disagree with him he attacks people that attack him, omit his words, take his words out of context like the “very fine people on both sides comments” in Charlottesville or that he said to “inject yourself with bleach”? Both lies!

    • @Kazayan Raawban You have a slave mentality meaning even when you see something else is clearly better you still wanna stay with the same old democrat dependent of government mentality. They open the cage at the zoo and the animal stays in the cage. Free your mind from the cage brother! Even a Nobel Peace Prize member was able to free his mind from the caged mentality by nominatingTrump for the Nobel Peace Prize based on the very facts I pointed out to you on his stellar military accomplishments and why not following the top brass at the pentagon isn’t always the right thing to do!

      @M J
      You keep making the same mistake of assuming I’m a Democrat. I am not aligned with or loyal to any political party. Since you used the term slave, the best explanation I can give you is that, for black people, arguing in favor of a party is like arguing in favor of one master over another…regardless of who you choose, you will not be free. Trump is a snake oil salesmen, and you’re promoting him like a medicine that can cure what ails us, when all he’s done is make our belly’s ache.

      Time to wake up brother…it’s getting late..

      @M J
      Its clear why I hadn’t heard from you after that last reality rocket campaign I dropped on you…the kool-aid you drink is much sweeter than the bitter truth I’m offering. That Nobel Peace prize nomination is just like all of his other unearned accolades, a sham powered by a payoff. Donald Trump has done 1 thing that is invaluable: he has revealed that 35% of this country are racists, idiots, and/or sycophants…God is not mocked…

    • @Kazayan Raawban
      I am not assumming I am going by your words. You are caught up in rhetoric and emotions because you have a problem with Trump’s words rather than seeing the good in his actions which I have pointed out extensively ? You’ve said nothing negative about joe or harris even after I layed out a litany of facts on their horrible records? It is not about dem or rep it is about what’s best for the structure of the country. If the structure is strong it helps the people in making a better life for themselves. No matter who’s at 1600 penn ave it won’t stop me from thriving to be Christ like which is ultimately what gets me through. My second response to your last comments are below:

      We have to at least agree on basic fundamentals? Trump has only done one invaluable thing? Prison reform, pardoning Alice Johnson, Opportunity Zones, destroying ISIS caliphate, not going to war, increasing and permanently funding HBCU’s, passing the Johnson Amendment etc?🤔 What payoff does he get for legitimately being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize? For one of his many accolades of breaking a 39 year norm of presidents going to war? One moment you say it’s good to have a intellectual conversation with me? The next minute you are calling me racist, stupid, and or a sycophant? Racist I am not because me and the 8% of other blacks that voted for Trump don’t have the power to be racist. I won’t even elaborate on stupid. Sycophant well I may be close to that in some fashion however don’t think it was the appropriate word to use? You need to leave the cage the gate is open!

  9. McCain was a POW for over 5 years and when it was time for him to be released, he let other captured soldiers go ahead of him. Even after being captured for 5 years. Trump is disgusting.

  10. He has a deep dark empty bottomless hole in his soul that will never be fulfilled .

  11. He’s always HATED, I mean absolutely hated the attention veterans get. Dead, alive, wounded
    whatever. He so wants that attention. That attention he never got from his father.

  12. Gold-Star families—this is as if your son, daughter, husband, father, or wife has just been shot on Fifth Avenue. By a draft-dodger.

  13. Orange face, yellow belly, black heart.

    The real suckers are the people who voted for him

  15. Defend confederate statues but insult US fallen soldiers. Keeping it classy, Donald.

  16. Jeanne Proteau | September 5, 2020 at 4:49 AM | Reply

    Biden/Harris…not perfect, but not fascist.

  17. 74 years old and still telling nonsense. It has been proven again: IQ Trump = zero

  18. The only thing more disgusting, more deplorable, more denigrating are those people who will vote for Trump again in 2020.

    • @NJG26 Gustav Please provide citations that support your statement, “he has done more for the military than the last 4 administrations combined..”. What, EXACTLY, has Trump done for the military that is more than the last 4 administrations combined??

    • How dare you call our soldiers losers I hope that none of them defend you
      you are a coward

    • That’s your parties fault ~ it always gives voters a horrible other option.

      Besides, you should know by now that the establishment (delegates, super delegates, electoral college, even the Supreme Court) selects the potus team, not the voters, elections are rigged from the beginning to the end…
      Wakeup Sheeple 😴

    • @NJG26 Gustav
      They said even FOX news confirmed the story, do you doubt that?
      This is the first I’ve heard this story.

    • @NJG26 Gustav
      Your a big sucker if you believe that. Trump hasn’t done one thing for America he says he’s going to do unless it’s for the elites like himself (like the tax cuts, the elites got most of the tax cuts) ~ it’s all for show so ppl will vote for him.

      Do some research on what he says, you’ll find out as I have, that he hasn’t kept his word. He’s the one who shutdown the peoples economy over a pretend FLU turns out isn’t so deadly. A Patriot would not have done that.

      Headlines With A Voice is a good non-lefty source for the facts…

  19. People act shocked. No different than what he said about McCain. Not surprising at all.

  20. Trump is genuinely confused about what it means to be a decent human being!
