  1. Death To Ming! | October 9, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

    😂 after four years of protecting him from treason!? I don’t think so. Let them rot in the annals of History!

    • Obama had 7 or so Ebola deaths, and several dozen H1N1 iirc and Trump was calling for his head on a pike. Imagine if Obama spread COVID-19 throughout the entire WH…. Trump would have turned several shades of orange and red. Hypocrisy rules in Trumpland, it rules supreme.

    • @Altair IV 2 died of Ebola in America. 14 thousand of swine flu, pandemic offices helped saved lives.

  2. After Nixon got kicked out a lot of his most rabid supporters just shut their big mouths.

    • Suuuuuure, Biochemistry…sure they are. 🙄
      *Just like* Jim Comey’s arrest.
      *Just like* Andrew McCabe’s arrest.
      *Just like* John Podesta’s arrest.
      *Just like* Greg Craig’s conviction.
      *Meanwhile* (and allowing for ‘as-of-yet-announced indictments’)…
      #45✳’s *’accrued’ FOUR disbarred lawyers (and counting), SEVEN former employees who are INDICTED felons (SIX already CONVICTED), DOZENS of…’unplanned resignations’ AND, at last count, FIVE administration members with “Contempt Citations” NOW ON their resumes (Barr’s been cited TWICE 🤨).*
      And we won’t *EVEN mention* #45✳’s *numerous* ‘financial fiascos’… 💸
      But *we will* remind *everyone of THIS fact:*

      No they took major losses in the 70’s and then came roaring back in 1980 with Regan & Bush. Then After Clinton came Bush II and then Trump. The GOP has been full of crazies for years. There will be another probably in the 2030’s though

    • Kenneth Wright | October 9, 2020 at 10:13 PM | Reply

      CynAnne1 Wow, you pretty much laid it out. If you handed that resume in for a janitor, you probably wouldn’t get hired!

    • Carmen Perez and at my job. I was battling them constantly until recently…

    • They were biding their time and here we are.

  3. This guy is putting forward a lot of common sense. Russian bots are going to be working overtime in the comments, mark my words 😏

    • LOL!!! Randy couch RUSSIAN BOT!!

    • @Randy Couch no real americans like presidents who don’t support terrorists

      biden 2020

    • @Raging Monk – And, if *that’s* out of their ‘price range’, then there’s always…
      #CloroxtinisFor45sFans 🍸👋😏

    • @Chuck Anya Sure like every democrat supported President Barrack Obama too. Let’s not play games here, the left media opinion/ fake news is making it sound like most of the republican senate will break. Not even close to 3%.

    • @Shark Which Democrats didn’t align with Obama while he was in office.

  4. Trump Still didn’t Condemn the Planned Terror Attack on Michigan Governor……😏

  5. Edward Buckner | October 9, 2020 at 7:37 PM | Reply

    He is a very honest, smart insightful man, who understands history. My hat is off to you John. I’m always intrigued by your views.

  6. Donald Trump is more Dangerous than Covid 19
    VOTE HIM OUT!!!👉

    • Chester Jeffrey | October 9, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

      Is John Meachem saying that Trumps allies are instrumentalists ?

    • General Biochemistry I | October 9, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      @corgising As for racism. It does still exist but it is not as prevalent as the media and even the protests would have you believe. It is much like taking offense. Someone says they like the skirt you are wearing. In days past that would have just been a compliment but now many would describe it as being demeaning to women. What a black person considers a racist act today is in no way like the racist acts of the past. For something to be truly racist it must occur strictly because of the race of the person under attack and furthermore be something that would not happen to anyone else not of that race. George Floyd’s death is a good example. It was a horrible act but a white man died in almost the exact same manner a few months before the Floyd case so there is really no proof that race had anything to do with his death. But we have gotten to the point where if you disagree with a black person, you are a racist. If a black person gets pulled over it isn’t because of a broken tail light or their speeding it is because all the cops are racist. So what needs to happen is people need to stop being victims and take responsibility for their actions and their lives. This country is NOT racist. You can tell that by just turning on your TV. For a people that are only 13% of the population they are closer to 50% of the news anchors, 50% of the television shows, 80% of the athletes and a lot of our politicians. That does not happen without white support.

    • @General Biochemistry I O.k. , I could be wrong, Do you have have any documentation to support these things you’re saying ? As far as I’m aware antifa is just an ideology without any leadership or organization. As to the agitators, all reports I’ve seen point to far right groups & militias.

    • General Biochemistry I | October 9, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @Mad Rabbit Here is exactly why you don’t hear the truth about what is going on:
      The FBI did put out a report that said that right wing militia groups are the greatest threat. BUT that is because they tend to be more organized and well armed, not because they are actually running around lighting things on fire. While there have been plenty of peaceful protests since George Floyd, there has also been about 2 Billion in damages caused by Antifa and BLM radicals burning, looting and attacking people. They have also killed a lot of people this Summer. The media has been keeping it quiet but you can find the truth if you look for it. I sincerely doubt these attackers are white supremacists unless they are wearing black face paint. Here is a video that shows what I mean:

    • @Randy Couch Hey Dummy… BLM are peaceful protesters using the right under the 1st amendment… the rioters are criminals and opportunist from all walks of life… only fools can’t separate them.


  8. they will…like rats leaving a sinking ship!

    The Donald Trump presidency is the culmination of decades of the Conservative media selling fear, conspiracy theories and victimization to anti-science Christian extremists who believe that they alone have a divine right to control American society.

    • Trumpturd is the gift that keep giving , if you are Putin, you couldn’t be happier to see what the USA have become under Trump.

    • Blanca Blanco | October 9, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      It’s all about control. Fools! When God itself gave us free will. Their petty arrogance has made them blind. Tragic! For Karma Is Inevitable.

    • @jackson342002
      … that is quite a good way of describing the Trump Presidency in 36 words.
      I’ve been trying to say the same thing for a while now but have not been able to say it so succinctly.
      May I borrow your words and help spread them…?

  10. Hope Jon is correct in his assessment, but eligible voters, we can’t let up until Trump is voted out … think how good that is going to feel, not as a form of vengeance (karma, maybe), but because it will feel as it does when a disaster has finally been mitigated to the point you can relax. I think most Americans, both sides and in between, are F’n tired. I am.

    Nixon people were loyal also, until they weren’t. The closer to Election Day more will leave. 😷

  12. It doesn’t matter. They could have, should have been loyal to the Constitution. At this point, they’re moving decks chairs around on the Titanic.

  13. *Getting Trump’s COVID-19 test results before the 2nd Debate is like getting Kim Jong-Un’s medical records.*

  14. In other words ….. the rats are jumping ship .

    Just to reiterate joe McCarthy s lawyer was roy Cohn lawyer to the mob and Trump’s mentor.

    • @Armandhammer yeah, you really need a high IQ to use a friggin’ dictionary!

    • I’m gonna go out on a limb and say everyone who focused on me typing the word for the moisture that accumulates on a cold surface in a hotter environment instead of the word that means thinking you’re better, is under 25 and a no experience punk.

    • @simon kenton I know what affirmative action is.

    • @Armandhammer hahahaha! i love the smell of humiliated trumpturd in the morning!

    • @simon kenton You humiliated me? Funny cause here I was thinking you prove my theory.

    • Chester Jeffrey I think a Nicole worked directly for George Bush as White House Communications Director. Many people on regular news channels are Republicans or now former Republicans.

    Women you have the most important roll ever played in American history and that is to vote Donald Trump out of office and save democracy. We must rise to the occasion.

    • Thats right, women out number men ,we need to stand together and protect you’re right to decide about your body ! If we allow repugnants to win ,men will tell us how we should act and decide ,haven’t they done that long enough ?

  18. Make them Pay by VOTING OUT HIS ENABLERS… moving on is NOT GOOD ENOUGH

  19. Do not forget their names and what they allowed.

    Moving on is not in the cards. This vile president and others like him must never be given power again.

    • All of them need to be investigated, arrested, convicted and jailed.

    • I would support “public executions” to be added to the General Election ballot. I support public executions for this entire administration.

    • Christine King | October 9, 2020 at 11:08 PM | Reply

      We do need reform, starting with the Electoral College and voting rights. Next up is lessening the influence of dark money, then on to reestablishing checks and balances. As much grief as Pelosi has been getting, it does seem incongruent that the 25th Amendment is invoked by the Vice President and Cabinet in situations such as these and not a bipartisan committee. Our Founders never envisioned a Trump presidency.
