    Nominee: Writes a “mean tweet”

    Republicans: Now this is an avengers level threat.

  3. America’s reputation will remain in tatters until Trump and his enablers are brought to justice

  4. *Ahhhhhhh…sweet sweet MAGAloser tears. It’s just like fine wine.*

    • @Pam Johnson You can be as nice and sweet and accommodating as you want, but that will NEVER promote unity with MAGAlosers.
      Grow up.

    • @Jesus Says Nor will being cruel promote unity. Until they are ready to unite, there will still be division. That doesn’t excuse your bad behavior.

    • @Pam Johnson George Carlin said it best…… the problem is the public . Garbage in Garbage out…….. and our gullible public that is laugh at around the world that we can not think on our own…… and playing the blame game

    • @Pam Johnson You are in love with Trump?

    • @Peter Morris I’ve never been in love with any malignant narcissist, and certainly not with that one in particular. Why do you ask?

  5. Only criminals abuse the justice system!!!! Lol

  6. It’s illogical to me, that a sweeping pardon, could be issued without an actual stated crime. Nixon was pardoned for a specific crime, and the reason given by then president Ford was unification after Watergate.

    • What they need is immunity but don’t tell anyone.

    • And Ford was WRONG to pardon Nixon.

    • I agree 100% with you point, but in fact Nixon was pardoned for “…all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974.”
      It was at the time, and remains, un-tested whether a total, broad, unspecified pardon was valid under the Constitution.

    • Actually Nixon was not pardoned for a specific crime, he was given a blanket or “absolute” pardon for his entire term of office. This is what Ford’s order stated: “Now, THEREFORE, I, GERALD R. FORD, President of the United States, pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto Richard Nixon for all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from January 20, 1969 through August 9, 1974.”
      The Republicans got away with it then, why wouldn’t they try again? No accountability is why.

      SAME. It’s essentially saying it doesn’t matter what you’ve done, you’re excused from it.

  7. Trump uses the justice system to serve his purposes. Potential to give pardons like stay out of jail cards.

      @Dr No ah but your comment is completely without context or semblance of cognition.
      “Of the acts of clemency, 1715 were commutations (including 504 life sentences) and 212 were pardons. Most individuals granted executive clemency by Obama had been convicted on drug charges, and had received lengthy and sometimes mandatory sentences at the height of the war on drugs.”
      Are you really trying to equate someone getting a pardon from life sentences for sometimes even minor posession charges to pardoning self-admitted felons guilty of treason, tax-evasion, money-laundering and fraud because they’re personal acquaintances if not family members of Trump himself.
      You completely disregard Trump taking bribes for pardons and all the crimes trump has committed and paid great amounts in fines for.

      Buh “OBAMA”

    • @mad-baby IMPOTUS ok now that you added context tell me how my statement was wrong handed them out like candy, what they did is a different discussion, like candy

    • @mad-baby IMPOTUS ca ca comparison is what your brain does to help draw co co conclusions

    • Keshonda Baldwin | December 3, 2020 at 1:07 AM | Reply

      @The Real Donald Trump he pardoned those who were non violent with drug charges who were given harsh time that a murderer doesn’t even get. Those were people Obama didn’t even know unlike Trump who was in cahoots with those he are trying to pardon, so it’s really not the same.

    • Keshonda Baldwin | December 3, 2020 at 1:10 AM | Reply

      @El R. no… he granted it to those who the judicial system over sentenced people such as petty hustling drug dealers who had no violent criminal history. I don’t see how they can compare Obama and Trumps pardons cause Trump pardon people he hired to cover and help to do his dirty works.

  8. Trump has slapped down the Justice System with his outrageous contempt and left the norms reeling.

    There’s the thing… republicons don’t want “Honest” and hypocricy IS the republicons party

  10. Waaah Neera posts mean tweets. She hurt their widdle feewings 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣

    We don’t care if Trump attends or doesn’t attend the inauguration.

  12. My sentiments exactly…good riddance, and don’t let the door hit you on your way out!

  13. I like the part where t’rump is going to pardon himself and his family, which will just make the states more determined to send them all to prison.

  14. A strange thing for a law and order president

    • The length of his term has been one never ending series of unmitigated disasters. Covid topped it!

    • You people need to start watching some real news. Unbelievable how much you have been brainwashed.

    • @Sweetbriar Real news? You mean the way Trump handled Covid is wrong? There aren’t 275,000 lives that have been lost? FYI, I don’t live in the US & watch mostly global news so I am probably in possession of a far wider range of news than what would ever exist in your little mind. No brainwashing here, sunshine, not like you.

    • Sweetbriar Yea we should watch Carlson tucker and Hannity for the truth. Yes 👍 whatever

    • @Pete Pav Thank-you!

  15. This man is a predator. But he knows the end is near. Gitmo SQQN

    • Get in the popcorn. Military tribunals are on the way

    • Due really never going to happen wake up. You can wish and I wouldn’t hold it against you but it will never happen. Wake up and work for real solutions

      Trump has justice on his side he has sworn testimony and written affidavits.

    This is a case of the kettle calling the pot black.

    • yep. These people are corrupt to the core, and Trump has exposed it by how much they hate him and played all their cards and got caught. Kinda funny the orange man got to them so bad
