  1. ….”end up spending more time with you family at Xmas”…. sound like a plus to me…….. Not working for Trump…… plus plus

  2. Isn’t sedition a crime?
    All 126 RINO’s who signed on to the Texas crap is guilty…and should be treated as such

    1. @Willy Bones you are correct that none did. Senators may not have needed to ride the Trump train and in need if Suoer PAC money as much as House members do. Senators are on a six year cycle and Representatives are on a two year cycle.

    2. @JazlDazl Attention to detail is important, especially when dealing with people who twist the truth & invent “facts” as they go..

    1. How does a relief package save lives? It helps out people financially yes..people like ilhan omars husband who received 600 thousand dollars because we all know they needed it..plus you might want to look at a few democratic gouverners who made a ton of small businesses close up while big box stores stayed open..

    2. @Mike Mason The final version of the first relief package was mainly driven by the republicans. The second one, where the Democrats tried to get *families* to receive enough money to pay rent and food and save the roofs over their heads didn’t suit McConnell’s agenda so he (with the senate republicans) first blocked it entirely for 3 months and then quibbled and niggled and whittled it down to a match-stick while he refused (calling this ‘negotiation’) to pass anything, and finally tried to pass a bill that gave families ZERO but created a situation where you can’t sue a business (like meat-packing) which puts you in danger and provides no PPE. *Then* McConnell had the gall to say that because Pelosi – who’s been working constantly since May for families to get the relief they need – is responsible for the McConnell ‘so-called relief’ bill not passing. He’s a liar. Simple as that. A liar.

    3. I think the left is equally to blame. We are all just running on hate. Its clouded our judgment. The pandemic was handled horribly because we were too concerned with removing Trump.

  3. Firing, firing, firing….his career is to fire people. He creates his own enemies and hatred. This is one of the reasons he lost the election.

    1. Yes, there are some reporters that just make you feel comfortable … Nichole, Bryan Tyler Cohen, Jake Tapper, Rachel Maddow…

  4. t’rump is also the most incompetent, most under-qualified, and thus most worst president in history.
    Looks like he got his wish to be a “historical” president! Sadly, for all the wrong reasons.

    1. @Mike Mason Obama created far more jobs in his terms. Considering what Trump was given his results were rather lackluster economically. Trump is also responsible for the largest rapid growth of national debt that accelerated far faster than it had under Bush or Obama. His tariff war that caused hundreds of thousands of farmers to declare bankruptcy. And all of that was before the pandemic started. Out of all of the developed nations, United States is suffering the worst because of Trumps incompetence.

    2. @Mike Mason Lowering tax mainly for the ultra wealthy is about his only achievement. And how’s that wall going?

    3. @Mike Mason mickey..ur always gonna need those Diaperdon kneepads sadly .
      What’s worse is you will probably never know what Trump hasn’t done for you …or how he profited from your sad loyalty…
      Diaperdon loves suckers
      Edit : eh..your prob nt even American

    1. Yes, I wish these people (and all) would be held accountable for their actions. It seems the govt response or lack of to the pandemic should be looked in to as well

  5. The Trump administration either indicted, infected, incarcerated, impeached, soon to be vaccinated then evicted! And 74 million Americans voted for this foolishness!

    1. Yes Sir, no more no less…74 million Americans were the stirrup holders of this “Conman” as the jester of the whole Nation…No “Rattenfaenger-syndrome”, more horrible, similar to the Germans after the lost war when they were sent to camps for “Denazification”…take care…

    2. Maybe 74 million voters just like a strong economy with lower taxes and low unemployment numbers. Maybe they were happy with the new imporved trade deals..and maybe they liked the last 4 years without fighting wars in countries we had no business still being in..call us crazy

    3. @Mike Mason Obama created far more jobs in his terms. Considering what Trump was given his results were rather lackluster economically. Trump is also responsible for the largest rapid growth of national debt that accelerated far faster than it had under Bush or Obama. His tariff war that caused hundreds of thousands of farmers to declare bankruptcy. And all of that was before the pandemic started. Out of all of the developed nations, United States is suffering the worst because of Trumps incompetence.

    1. @Dementia Joe How many times has your account been deleted? I see that you’re back to being a 1-week old troll.

    1. @e r maybe just anywhere USA.trump lost ,curl up with a box of kleenex or get off the cross we need the wood

    2. Like the whole evil Old Testament, there were a lot of evil towns. Jesus rebuked the old ways of that hateful time and taught all about peace love and understanding. The Pharisees hated him because he was so accepting of love and he always rejected hate at every chance. Why do people who refuse to love as Christ did even want to call themselves “Christian”.. do you guys ever read what he always talked about every single day!!!!!! If you really read and think about what JESUS said you may need to think twice or be born yet again.

    1. This is much worse than Watergate. Back then, Republicans had enough decency to ultimately forced Nixon from office. Today’s anti-American GOP is actively participating in Trump’s efforts to destroy democracy by undermining Americans who voted for the opposition.

    2. Oh come on, this surpassed anything Nixon could have dreamed of half way through President Trump’s term.. we’ve just all gotten numb to people moving goal posts..

    1. Yes, that’s true, but they also allow his worst impulses. None of those around him have shown a tiny bit of backbone and integrity to push back. They’re all his sycophants even though they’re better educated and more competent than 45. Strange how an inept pretend-potus could hold so much power on huge number of people. It says a lot about GOP.

    2. We will see on Jan 6. Several Legislatures already gearing up, some of those court cases are being decided now, Macnines 68% error, W can’t say everybody definitely confined, etc.

    1. @Lindsay Jennifer He found a new mob. They tend to be uneducated, lacking several teeth and wearing MAGA hats.

    1. Not too fast… we don’t know yet. He still has a month to do more illegal stuff and destroy the country more than he has already.

    2. @Carol Rapson Not on American soil or in any of the 50 states, his cronies can take a boat or spaceship somewhere else.

    1. Started sooner than I was expecting! Tried to warn you simps!. Do yourself a favor, get some food for the lock in coming you fux! IT HAS BEGUN, well lookee here! ITS COMING YOU MOTHERFUXERS – FBI, Texas Rangers and US Marshals Raid Solarwinds HQ in Austin – Do you CNN tit suckers know what Solarwinds is USED IN? Of course not because you dumb fux listen CIA CNN ! BOOM! WAR IS ON!

  6. Barr did all he’s dirt and now he’s backing out like he didn’t do anything wrong. And like we’re going to forget

    1. no, I believe his peers and others such as the incoming ‘independent’ DOJ if they observe any improprieties…
