  1. The president is preparing for life outside the White House in exactly the way one would expect- by initiating new grifts.

  2. The GOP is splitting into 2 groups: those that believe in objective reality and those that support Trump.

  3. The republican party is the party of traitors.

    its a great time to be a crook if you know the president

    • Trump continues to rely on dubious handouts. First from his father. Now from his supporters.

    • GOP is now 18 U.S. Code § 2384.Seditious conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

      (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, § 1, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

    • If you were a 1/2 smart criminal you wouldn’t be in the same town as trump.

    • @Don Quixote WTF did you get “Smart” and “Trump” in the same sentence?? He is just vicious and rich to throw money at anyone to scare them from attorney fees? The only thing he knows Libetards are scared of action

  5. Trump hasn’t transformed the Republican party, he’s just revealed who they’ve been for years.

    Party? The GOP isn’t a party; it’s a cult.

  7. From Canada this looks like a treasonous coup attempt, no doubt aided by Putin.

  8. People are fools who follow Trump because he destroys EVERYTHING he touches.

  9. Fbi is going after trump n his partners n ATTY someone is gonna get hurt with all TRUMPS LIES!!

  10. You know who else demanded a loyalty test?
    Jim Jones.

    Say hello to your republican party, ladies and gents! 😅😂🤣

    • Maybe they’re planning on baracading themselves in the White House on Jan 20nd then offing themselves when the military breaks in to remove them. I wonder if they’re running mock drills involving a cup of kool-aid.
      Didn’t Jim Jones claim they were going to take a plane to Russia that never came?

    • They fight the law and the law wins

      Also something that doesn’t get mentioned often, the fact that almost everyone left in Jonestown at the end was injected with poison at gunpoint when they realized the “kool-aid” was poisoned. When they tried to finally say no it was too late.

  11. Pelosi: “I’m counting down the hours ‘til he’s gone. I plan to pull him out of there by his hair, his little hands and his feet.” 😂

    • Do you have a source for that quote?

    • But Republicans are the violent ones.

    • Republicans do not want violence they want peace. If they wanted violence you would see it all over the news.

    • @Matt Wolf you seem like the type that would call the Republicans a “Pro-life” party, but then you would agree with the 3 executions that Trump had scheduled to take place before he leaves office. Did you know cops in the 60s used to say similar stuff about black people? Were the cops doing it because they were arguing from facts like you, I think not. Also I could point out the Republicans have started many wars while in power or created other forms of international conflict, do you not think wars are violent? What you are doing is called argumentum ad populum.

  12. From claiming voter fraud to openly stealing and now using martial law ! Is he the president we really want !?!

  13. right now he is trying to avoid all the court time he is racking up

    “The presidency doesn’t enhance who you are it reveals who you are.” Michelle Obama. Mary Trump said “Donald has never been in a situation that someone else couldn’t get him out of until now.”

    Trump has created a new litmus test for crazy. These people are Trumpublicans.

  16. Conald J Swamp is turning America back to year zero.: no democracy, no constitution, absolute loyalty, Mass deaths of Americans…

  17. trump was never president he just play’s one on tv

  18. We haven’t had a president since Obama left office.

  19. The only thing Rump could create is dirty underwear for himself.

  20. The Litmus Test is for cowardice and submissiveness.
