  1. Heilman is just brilliant !

  2. Yes. The republican party was rotten to the core anyway

  3. brilliantly said, ty mr heilemann and ms wallace. i can’t imagine that anyone really thought that he would suddenly accept the reality of his situation. of course he will continue, and he will get much worse. we are not dealing with a normal person. his personality disorders have guaranteed otherwise, that he will continue to escalate his words and deeds. he is a narcissistic sociopath with psychopathic tendencies.

    • They’re going to find it hard to cope with him in prison!

    • Jolene Plourde | December 30, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

      A malignant narcissist sociopath even worse

    • Finally somebody who is seeing the severity of the situation instead of just making jokes and laughing about it all as though Trump is not still a dangerous threat to the country.

    • @Sheila Boston If you really do think that he is going to prison then you should be very scared about what a psychopathic evil man like Trump will do if he believes he is going to end up in prison.

    If these traitors are not prosecuted, this will only magnify.

  5. Pelosi needs to refuse to seat any new members who went along with that whole Texas/SCOTUS debacle.

    Well put John, the GOP has gradually become bankrupt morally and intellectually over past many years.

    • Republicans are a minority party and after Trump is publicly tried and convicted in a court of law, there’ll be even fewer of them. Also, Republicans are an older party. There were a lot of 2016 Trump supporters who didn’t make it to vote in 2020.
      The GOP’s only way to stay in power involve the very undemocratic voter suppression of cutting polling places, purging voter rolls, and now, thanks to the unpatriotic Trump, throwing shade on elections they lose. In the last nine presidential elections, the GOP has won the popular vote once.

    • @Marvin Martian The democrats are the ones with no morals.

    • They morally went bankrupt in 2016

    • Stars InTheSky | December 31, 2020 at 3:04 AM | Reply

      Not so gradual. But the Republican party is certainly in it’s worst shape ever right now.

  7. And the phrase of the day is:
    “Crescendo of Crazy”

    • Yes just a novelty isn’t it, just something to laugh about because nothin will ever happen because a 78 year old geriatric is going to be the savior of your country.

    • @Thyalwaysseek The Crescendo of Crazy is more Don the Con saying he won the election when he lost the popular vote (again)and the electoral college, repeating the same lie over and over, saying that he won the Nobel Peace Prize (poor baby!) and getting more and more unhinged every day because he’s got no friends, no allies (even Pence doesn’t support him anymore! Even his wife hates him ! Well, the old man baby needs the straight jacket and to be brought to the asylum for mentally ill (just like his mom and dad in their last days).

    • @Folk47 Goulet No the Crescendo of Crazy is much more dangerous than just Trump claiming he won the election, it is quite obvious the interview went straight over your head and you just heard what you wanted to hear. Maybe you should go and read the David Ignatius article that Heilemann is referencing.

  8. Trump has exposed the rot of the G.O.P.

    • … and 50% of the country …

    • There was NO COUNTERINTELLIGENCE REPORT on the King in the White House by Mueller. “Billions Spent on U.S. Defenses Failed to Detect Giant Russian Hack.” I believe everything was given to Russia by the King in the White House & his Court (including big connections with Private Companies) in order to do the Hacking. Look at all the millions of people who voted for the Con King & also the number of high status Republicans who voted to End Democracy & the Constitution in the USA but was shot down by the USA Supreme Court just for a few examples. Not a surprise to me! (Michael Cohen said he may even try & start a war to Remain in Power & he knows his former boss) & I believe the King in the White House will now (as a Last & Final Act) go to a foreign power such as Russia (big financial friend of the King, Family, other Republicans, etc.) & stop the November Election (and section 230 – get out your shortwave radio) through his own private Defense Department (just changed with goons after Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was fired & I believe more people from strategic area’s like Generals, etc. will be on their way out) by now planning a Complete & Total Power Blackout of the USA including all Communication (internet, radio, TV, hacking of many online bank accounts, etc.) through Connections with his own private Defense Department & take it from there with COVID-19 running wild just what will happen to the USA. The King has already asked Russia for the emails of the old lady Clinton in the past, put a bounty on USA troops & did veto the current Defense Bill to fund the Military (for what ever reason), also take away the open skies treaty, discard observation USA planes and now put more goons in the Pentagon’s Defense Business Advisory Board just for starters & looking for more from the Justice Department also with a new AG goon, etc. Russia will promote the King in the White House from President to Dictator over the entire USA including the 30 USA billionaires who More than Gladly support him (because the fools think they won’t be Taxed at all like he was, etc.) but Wrong – now with future Big Huge Massive Private Taxes to the King & the Family to pay off Huge Massive Debts & from other Republicans, etc. & also take control of Unbelievable Private Wealth you can be quite sure the 30 billionaires will be stopped (by COVID-19 also) from leaving the USA. If the King does not get all the $ from his USA billionaires (for private wealth also) there will most likely be International Contracts (even by Russia) put on the King, the Family, other Republicans, etc. using the mob & others now inside the USA. The November Election will be no more except for Civil War & No More Aid (medical, transportation, etc.) to States going now into Bankruptcy. If this is not done, the King will be going to jail for most likely the rest of his life If he remains In the USA Outside of White House Power after the November Election is over with by past women who he did enjoy, obstruction of justice through the Mueller Report, City & State of New York Taxes, Debt, etc. The King Must Remain In White House Power but this time as their Dictator (he is not President anymore) under a Totalitarianism regime supporting Civil War & Destroying all Tax records of him & the Family in the IRS building, etc. I believe that the supposed over 70 million voters who did vote for the King in the White House will now support the King more than ever – Not the Constitution of the USA and some will be forced to also. Unfortunately I don’t believe Uncle Joe will be President when the law is saying he should be if Democracy fails due to Civil War, Economic Collapse (Only the Wealthy get More Wealthy), etc. like it did in Greece, etc.

    • Exactly right. It used to be that the sinister fanatics of the GOP were kept on the sidelines of their party. Now they are front and center and most are afraid to stand up to them. They focus on fear of losing jobs they don’t deserve rather than on protecting Americans and our country. 🇺🇸

    Donald Trump is what he is because…………. the Republican Party to a man and woman, enabled him, remember that fact.

  10. The penalty for treason is death.

    • @seamus McManus Yes, because No One Is Above The Law! Trump is a TRAITOR, same as the 17 Republican AG’s and 126 Republicans in Congress who Attempted a COUP!

    • @Tina Palmer For doing what? You are delusional beyond help. You actually want to bulldoze our democracy?

    • @Mark Gibson Have heard that all over YouTube, sedition. Do think it might be a huge blemish on country to go about charging him. Tax evasion, laundered money, and endangering the lives of countless millions by spreading harmful propaganda is another matter. Also misuse of campaign funds. There’s a massive Pandora’s box!

    • @TJ Agree 100%

    • Yes it’s more like sedition by Trump and his enablers.
      Treason is you you collude with foreign forces to undermine your own country like the HK rioters advocating independence.
      Imagine red states advocating independence from blue states.

  11. no worries: trump is ensuring 8 years of kamala following four of biden

    Why is nobody screaming in their faces….”YOU WROUGHT SARAH PALIN UPON US!” Enablers…..the whole party needs to be destroyed.

    • Exactly! That was the one that got me. Dan Quayle was pathetic. But Sarah? No one ‘trumps’ Trump for being BOTH corrupt AND stupid.

    • Heartland Light | December 30, 2020 at 11:33 PM | Reply

      Interesting that the man behind getting Sarah Palin on the ticket was Steve Schmidt, founder of the Lincoln Project.

    • @Heartland Light That IS interesting. In interviews, he admits the errors of his ways, of past behaviors and past judgment, further proving that mental illness is often semi-permanent, or temporary.

    “The Republican Party was a hollow, bankrupt, principle-less husk of what was formerly a great party when Donald Trump came along.” Yup. That’s about the size of it.

    • @New Blue 2 Eisenhower and ford are the last true republican presidents we have had. All scence then have been neofacists. They despise democracy. Notice how they have claimed every election from 2000 until now is illegitimate.

    • @lennie bostone Absolutely true, but Republicans have been stealing elections way before 2000. On recorded tape in 1968, LBJ had evidence of Richard Nixon committing treason by sabotaging the Vietnam Peace talks he was presiding over. If those peace talks weren’t sabotage, tens of thousands of people’s lives could’ve been saved from that war that lasted another 6 years (April 30, 1975).

    • “Formerly great party”? GTFO here

  14. The “rot” goes all the way to the roots. ssTupid didnt create his moonies, he cunningly seduced them.

    • And, those roots go back before Reagan, but Ronnie really put a face on “trickle down”.

    • Except he’s not that cunning [the man squandered a billion dollars, his career is littered with failures and bankruptcies, he’s in hock to who knows how many international criminals and he can barely read.]

      His advantages are a complete lack of moral scruples and a fantasy of his own greatness bordering on their psychotic.

    • @George Dunn You forgot–friends in very high places.

    • As a malignant narcissist, he has emotionally castrated men. Look at Pence he has been torpid for 4 years. Also, there are recent pics of Trump golfing with a diaper bulge.

  15. Dear Georgia/Georgians Please🙏🙏🙏
    Vote Blue💙💙💙and end this Republican nightmare👻once for all☕️

  16. Neither should McConnel be let off the hook for his Obama obstructionist years.

    • @New Blue 2 Actually, I thought about that, tRump sealed it by not participating in stimulus discussions. Is that why he scuttled the military and funding bills, to get back at Moscow Mitch? I’m one of those who does not believe tRump is smart enough to tie his shoes, who whispers in his ear? The two Steves, Bannon and Miller? Putin? Will we ever know?

    • @Christine King Yep, the main reason he didn’t want to sign the NDAA and Omnibus bills was because of McConnell not only acknowledging Biden’s win, but to not contest the results on Jan 6th. The main reason he finally signed the Omnibus/Covid relief bill was because Sen. David Perdue beg and pleaded with him (and probably told him he would contest the results on Jan 6th).

      Trump is a complete moron. He spent so much time going after Hunter Biden and creating conspiracy theories around COVID-19 believing that would win him the election, yet those 2 things are the reason why he lost the election.

      If he would have put pressure on McConnell to pass the HERO’s Act back in June, he likely would have won re-election, sad to say. McConnell had gotten everything he wanted from Trump (3 Justices and many federal judges); there was no reason to keep him around anymore. Trump was so incompetent to see that his greatest enemy was right in front of him.
      The Republican Party is a corrupt, sociopathic organization regardless of who the leader is (McConnell or Trump)—both are bad for the American people.

    • @New Blue 2 Yes, yes and yes to your response. Now the tRump replacements are scurrying out like cockroaches: Rubio, Haley and Hawley, they are going to out-obnoxious (to put it mildly) each other in order to scavenge the cult. It’s not even 2021!

    • Years from now? Look at the state of your nation, you really think you have a years from now? You’ll be lucky to make it through to the end of 2021 without a complete collapse.

  20. ‘Moscow’ Mitch should be his epithet forever firstly because he’s earned it and secondly, because he hates it SO MUCH!
