      @Tuesday Kim Lol you right wingers are so weird 😂. Remember when y’all said Obama would turn the country into a communist nation and that he’d “take your guns”? 😂😂 One thing the past has shown us is the right aren’t good at guessing what the next president will do at all 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️😂😂😂

    • @Collective Vision The left thought we’d be in world war 3 by now, yet trump accomplished multiple peace agreements. I didn’t like Obama, but id way rather have him over the new Biden. Biden is clearly gonna get pushed around by the far left.

    • @Travis Tarp — he’s going to get pushed around by the right as well.
      The presidency requires someone with alot of backbone, biden doesn’t have it.

    Respect and loyalty have two common traits.
    Neither can be commanded, they must be earned.
    And, once lost, both are nearly impossible to regain.

      @Jesse Lastname
      I didn’t really go over it in my head.
      I just write what I think and feel. It’s more honest that way.
      Tell me, how would you have worded it?

    • Jesse Lastname | November 23, 2020 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      @Richard Darlington How would I have worded it? I wouldn’t have made a post that pretentious and nonsensical in the first place…

      @Jesse Lastname
      I guess a sample of your literary eloquence is too much to ask for?
      Please, don’t bother.

    • @Richard Darlington Again, I wouldn’t have made your comment in the first place because yours is stupid. It’s not my job to humor your terrible arguments.

    • @Donald Smith What a garbage gish gallop.

      “Lowered our standing in the world.”

      Wahhhh, the US isn’t bending over backwards to Iran…

      ” More deaths than any other country”

      Fake news. The sheer death _count_ doesn’t matter because population sizes vary wildly. The death _rate_ matters, of which (1) we aren’t leading, and (2) are mostly the fault of Dem governors.

      “Made it known he wanted to destroy a free press and did his best to do that.”

      You’re listing this as if the media aren’t complacent hypersensationalized propagandists, and deserve our respect.

      “Lied relentlessly.”

      I’m actually going to stop here because this is just too sad and vapid on your part.

  3. SDNY… HE’S AAAALL YOURS NOW… 🇺🇸⚖️🇺🇸⚖️🇺🇸⚖️🇺🇸⚖️🇺🇸🤣😂🤣😂

  4. St. Augustine, not the best cite you can go for… He was a deadbeat dad, before he became a “wise man”.

    • CHARLES TIDWELL | November 23, 2020 at 11:32 PM | Reply

      Really??? Where did you come by that information? I would like to read that reference…Can you name it for me????

  5. That was a brilliant answer.

  6. People who couldn’t “move on” for four years, telling the rest of us how to move on. You can’t make this stuff up.

    • Better response: “People who’s only response to criticism for four years was “Hillary lost, get over it!” are now unable to “get over it” and can’t stop crying about how unfair everything is!”

    • @Corey funny how that works ain’t it? Gotta love when a well established precedent backfires.

    • @Corey …. let’s face it , if Covid 19 didn’t happen Trump would have won…. good luck with Biden.

    • @flip phone wizard Try using coherent sentences next time. Yes, I saw many people complain that “if you don’t support Trump, you’re against America”. The guy who said we don’t fill Supreme Court seats during an election year is Mitch McConnell. Look him up. He’s the same guy that put Amy up for a vote a month ago.

  8. meachem thinks he is the elite of the elite

  9. Remove All corrupt Politicians, then it moves forward!

  10. They mean, how the media can move on, what you got without him??

  11. Reasonable? Love things in common? (We’re in trouble!)

    Well this gives me so much hope……..but wait a minute, didn’t Obama give me hope…well he did for about four years, the next four was mostly hopelessness.

    “What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children–not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women–not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.

    I speak of peace because of the new face of war. Total war makes no sense in an age when great powers can maintain large and relatively invulnerable nuclear forces and refuse to surrender without resort to those forces. It makes no sense in an age when a single nuclear weapon contains almost ten times the explosive force delivered by all the allied air forces in the Second World War. It makes no sense in an age when the deadly poisons produced by a nuclear exchange would be carried by wind and water and soil and seed to the far corners of the globe and to generations yet unborn.

    Today the expenditure of billions of dollars every year on weapons acquired for the purpose of making sure we never need to use them is essential to keeping the peace. But surely the acquisition of such idle stockpiles–which can only destroy and never create–is not the only, much less the most efficient, means of assuring peace.

    I speak of peace, therefore, as the necessary rational end of rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war–and frequently the words of the pursuer fall on deaf ears. But we have no more urgent task.

    Some say that it is useless to speak of world peace or world law or world disarmament–and that it will be useless until the leaders of the Soviet Union adopt a more enlightened attitude. I hope they do. I believe we can help them do it. But I also believe that we must reexamine our own attitude–as individuals and as a Nation–for our attitude is as essential as theirs. And every graduate of this school, every thoughtful citizen who despairs of war and wishes to bring peace, should begin by looking inward–by examining his own attitude toward the possibilities of peace, toward the Soviet Union, toward the course of the cold war and toward freedom and peace here at home.

    *First: Let us examine our attitude toward peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable–that mankind is doomed–that we are gripped by forces we cannot control.*

    John F. Kennedy

    The premise of the host’s opening question actually said more than she probably intended, like taken directly from the pages of “1984”:

    ” Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    • Not sure why the left would want a Big Brother, Big Government, Nanny State taking over their lives, monitoring them, censoring them, using them – must be fake, failed promises of getting something like free money, being take of. It’s their pipe-dream – patriots will Never Allow it to happen.

    • @Kevin Bedard Did you miss the part where the left is trying to dismantle government spying? Or did you miss that the GOP has been the ones sponsoring all these intrusive and invasive bills allowing the government to spy on us?

    • @Sonata — lol the left trying to dismantle big government programs?
      That’ll be the day.

      Amen brother Stetson.

    • The quotatttionb is not applicable.. There are two ccmpeting reaitties, not one dominant one. We are in s dialogue not a monoiolog. One thing we sgree on is that we love the opposite of a 1984 totalitarian state or a 1776 tyranny: a consstitutiol republic

      Please talk sense.

  16. I see in Jon Meacham Thomas Jefferson spirit.

  17. This goes way over the head of the “Trump voter “

    • Goodbye $1.90 gas hello $6.00.. hope you can afford that $100,000 electric car

    • @Richard Barry Where do YOU live where you get $1.90 gas??? I sure don’t get it where I live and never have.
