    Vote, vote, vote November 2020

    • @Jason Hunt: Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; Woe to those who put darkness for light and light for darkness…
      Tell Trump that those of us with a soul said, GET BEHIND ME SATAN!! GET BEHIND ME!!

      (Amen to that)

    • El Chingon Your comment made me laugh. Thanks for that. I’ll be laughing again in November when I see all the Liberal tears.

    • Jason Hunt the tears you will see will be those of JOY!!! JOY, JOY, JOY!!!

      (Amen to that)

    • El Chingon Keep dreaming

    • Jason Hunt keep crying on the inside while you laugh on the outside. Soon you won’t know the difference between the two. Defending the indefensible must be exhausting.

  2. Looks like someone finally “read the room”.

  3. Really? Gen. Milley resign? No way!! Your better than that. Heck 99% of people dont know some Army bases after Confederate figures.

  4. I say, stand your ground and stay in position. Because Trump will replace him with someone who favors him.

    • Lo On : Trump’s got a problem there, though. With politicians it’s easy, just find someone who’ll lick Donny’s boots. But, you can’t have a commander of the joint chiefs who isn’t four stars or higher. These are men and women who have served, faced their fears and put their country first. Trump will be VERY hard pushed to find someone of that quality, willing to lay down for him. And, I expect, while Donny’s being silent, that’s because his staff are desperately trying to explain these facts to him, in a way that doesn’t, “trigger,” his bunker baby feelings? He’d be better off just leaving well alone, and accepting that the military will not back his Coup? But, that’s just my opinion? ✌️

    • Ash Roskell
      I have a question.
      Which is more influential on and have power to direct soldiers, Esper or Milley?

      By the way, have you seen Esper these days?

      @Ash Roskell – there’s _always_ a bootlicker somewhere. That’s how fascists consolidate power.

      Not a chance he have done the job as president carrying on lies on and on he is not well at all keeping change all the time from sradha

      Lo On
      And Miley didn’t favor the president?

  5. Maribel Perez | June 12, 2020 at 2:17 AM | Reply

    The pandemic leave people little bit intolerance. So bad. pray.

    Why, exactly, was he there in BDUs if he didn’t know?

  7. When are you going to stop being surprised? These are white supremacist. This is what they do. And those that support them are white supremacists, too.

      Ironically enough, the other fear of many blue-collar right wingers, in addition to Fear Of A Black Planet is the Federal Government suppressing the civilian population using the military. So now we have the bizarre sight of people like Boogaloo Boys actually protesting alongside BLM. Not enough to significantly impact the extreme right, to be sure, but it amuses me to think about the mental contortions they’ll have to engage in to swallow that!

    • Consciousness Reborn | June 13, 2020 at 3:48 PM | Reply

      Ahh, so all the black people that support Trump are white supremacist too? Ok ok. And i geus “u aint black if u don’t vote for Biden” Bidens own words. People are so being played by the media. It is hilarious!

    Majority of America agrees

    “Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker,” Durkan wrote, referring to Trump being moved to the White House bunker for nearly an hour amid intense protests last month.
    “A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington state’s business. ‘Stoop’ tweeting,” Inslee wrote.

  9. trump says he loves the flag, but hates when Americans exercise what it actually stands for.
    The only America trump likes, are the parts he can manipulate
    If trump loved America & for which it stands, he would celebrate our FREEDOM to disagree with him, not see us as the “Enemy of America”

  10. Anyone who works with Trump risks their own integrity

      Even when it’s in direct opposition to the constitution?


    • @Broadway Sam yes. They don’t have a choice. Unfortunately the President, in this case Chump is their boss.

    • NoneOfYour Beeswax | June 13, 2020 at 2:37 PM | Reply

      @Broadway Sam Being subject to the President is in no way unconstitutional, neither is walking beside the President.

    • Miggie Gomie | June 13, 2020 at 4:35 PM | Reply

      @NoneOfYour Beeswax sadly thats a rock and a hard place that our military has to deal. And even more important why we shouldnt elect a horrible person like the one we have.

      So Trump is right then. The president outranks the US Constitution.

  11. He’s a racist. That’s all there is too it. And now the hood is off and he’s not trying to hide it any more.

    The general walking with trump in combat uniform during a civil protest is an act of war against it’s citizens. This kind of acts only happens in dictatorship countries.

    • Diana Hulstine | June 13, 2020 at 7:39 PM | Reply

      @RG why because trump and his stokges are all going to prison

    • Mario Tofiek | June 13, 2020 at 7:50 PM | Reply

      @Rick Williams u trump cults will say all kind of excuses to fit ur narratives so u won’t have to admit u guy’s messed up by voting for a pathological liar bigot con two face devil. The US has laws in long before ur cult & ur willy wonka so called president wannabe dictator. If it’s not for the check & balances in US laws, constitutions & democracy ur so called king would have turned us to north Korea which he happens to admire so much. Idiots trump is a traitor his in it for himself & his elite buddies.

    • Rick Williams | June 13, 2020 at 8:06 PM | Reply

      Mario Tofiek Name some of his elite buddies? The elite doesn’t like Trump either…Trump interferes with their global agenda. People don’t like Trump because he doesn’t play the political games that has been played for decades. There will be a day when America will lose her sovereignty and independence, but not under Trump! Now the vaccine program is worrisome! I’ll be watching very closely.

      @Rick Williams u need others to give u names of trump’s elite friends. U have just showed how blind u guy’s follow the willy wonka wannabe dictator. Here are some of trump’s elite friends running trump’s government, Carl Icahm , Steve Schwarzman , Stephen Feinberg , Richard Lefrak , Steven Roth & don’t forget the Koch brothers with their paid spin doctor of deception Steve Bannan another two face devil. Steve Bannan works for elite billionaires ask ur friends on foxy propaganda news. U think does taxe cuts were for u & the working.

  13. Why did you not think a General appointed during Trump would not do stupid.

  14. Kathy DeAtley | June 12, 2020 at 9:20 AM | Reply

    So in other words Trump wants him gone because he disagrees with trumps ignorance. Thats what happens to everyone that does not agree with Trump.

  15. If one of the top generals has such poor judgement, we’re in big trouble.

  16. Don’t think for one minute the heads of the military WILL blindly follow trump.

  17. Resignation only helps Trump.
    Speaking up at all about the current commander in Chief in any negative light is a RARITY. Be grateful he did point out he knew it was a wrong thing to do.

    Is anyone else worried that if he resigns, his predecessor will be EverTrumper?

  19. Miggie Gomie | June 12, 2020 at 7:25 PM | Reply

    I would under Trump. There is no leadership in this admin just illusions.

    Trump is committing war crimes in yemen and Afghanistan
