  1. I was hoping for a moral victory, but I’m disappointed. It shouldn’t be close. America is trump.

    • @Jayant “yes, the us deserve to go down now.” What is your nationality? Probably from a country that is under the USA’s protection.

    • @AwakeAmericanow. “How can it be otherwise?” Maybe you should actually learn some things, and answer your own question. For instance, republicans are notorious for vote suppression and extreme gerrymandering. BTW, the young people from your country that you heard, they are uneducated, gross and dumb, like you.

    • Anyone notice how many foreigners have been putting down _all_ of the USA, but don’t even have the guts to state their nationality? That is probably because they cannot admit that they are under the USA’s protection, and may not even have their current country if it was not for help from the USA.

    • A victory is a start. We can work on everything else once it’s gone

    • @Alfred Basurto
      Please! Only the racist and stupid voted him in. Yes there are a lot but already Biden has the most votes in History .

  2. Aristotle…. you get the Government you deserve!

    The world is watching, and looks aghast.

    America has truly fallen.

      For those of us who are not Americans, of course Donald Trump, and whoever you elect to be your new president is the one we have to accept best represents the voice and values of America. How can it be otherwise? It saddens me that when I was young all things American were admired and envied. Today I hear young people say “that’s so American” when referring to anything gross or dumb.

      No, the civilised world, the world of well-educated citizens and properly functioning democracies.

      How deranging that you think it’s that simple.

  4. Short answer. Yes. It’s utterly depressing – the amount of racism and the amount of people willing to support an autocrat hellbent on destroying US democracy.

  5. The fact that half the americans agree with everything that Trump has done and represents shows how the country really is.. yes the world is watching… As a Canadian I hope they keep our borders closed for another four years.. US is not going to change

    • It’s actually a little less, but the electoral college biases right for presidents.

    • @Oh Yes, Please! I’ll Have Another Bowl Of TDS! @Oh Yes, Please! I’ll Have Another Bowl Of TDS! The cities whose slicks are subsidizing you country hicks? THOSE “failures”?

      Go give yourselves carnal pleasure and yeehaw in your outhouses if you must. But leave the cities out of it. If it weren’t for you, they could afford better, as in Scandinavia.

      It’s a cinch since the senile one is also a bigot.

      Only 66 million have (currently) voted for Donald. That is about 1/5th of the population, NOT 1/2.

    I’m afraid Joy is right – this IS America.

  7. Definitely Americans thinks like him which is terribly horrific. Feel sorry for those who are normal humans in America.

    • @Random Person Show who you are, Mr. Person. Then we can talk. Stop hiding. Until cannot talk. This society became so childish when we elected a spoiled brat for president. And you didn’t say anything worth responding yes, I dismissed it.

    • There ARE decent people in America, but there are more gross, deplorable Trump supporters! Our great country is lost!

    • @Harree Biden has over two million more votes than trump. Yes, there are some messed up people..they are obviously brainwashed…but there are millions who voted against trump..and again, two million more, so far, than those who voted for him. It is our election process that is messed up. If trump wins, it is not the will of the people, anymore than it was when he won when he ran in 2016. Hillary received 3 million more votes. We really have to look at our election process. I tell you tho..I never realized how many dumb people there are in the U.S. It is very sad. They are voting against their own they always do. Unbelievable.

    • @Robin D I’m still confused as to why you’re doubling down on ad hoc attacks rather than actually debating your point of view.

      Honestly I’m blown away by this. If you don’t want to have a debate, why engage?

      Also if I said something not worth responding to, why respond to it? You did respond to it, saw you had a losing argument and decided to make this personal.

      Robin, if you’re left wing, right wing or center. It’s all irrelevant because you need to start acting like an adult first.

    • @Harree Interesting point of view. Everyone who shares my political views are decent and everyone who doesn’t is deplorable.

      I vaguely remember in history books the Nazi party using that same exactly line of thinking.

      It’s scary how polarized the country is.

  8. What America is – is lost. a shriveled up frightened little shell of its former self.

  9. Yes, America claims to be a Christian nation – but has twice chosen a man who is a liar, a racist and morally bankrupt to be their leader. People say that countries get the leader they deserve, and that is surely true of America in 2020. The Proud Boys must indeed be proud at the moment.

    Let’s admit it, America has a lot of people that would like to behave like trump if could get away with it. Disgraceful!

    Trump is the Pandora’s Box of everything bad about America… Voting him in 2016 opened it.

    • Fiona Anderson | November 4, 2020 at 8:28 AM | Reply

      People voted for him in 2016 because he had already opened the box. The problems have been lurking under a cracking veneer for much longer than that.

      OUCH…definitely…it’s everything a lot of people are…he’s the host and gut belly spoken by many ill willed folks…Devils

      And you people continuing to stay blind isn’t good either

    • Facts ! There no way this just happened these people were just waiting for someone like him so they could show who they really are .

    • @Nik Nat Patty Wack Even the people who so – called are not racist .

    Trump is just a reflection of the moral and ethical decline of American society, it’s sad that someone like him has become so acceptable to so many…if he’s re-elected, than we got what we deserved.

  13. The rest of the world gave you the benefit of the doubt for four years, that is over now. As of this election your country deserves what will follow.

  14. If People like Purdue and Lindsey are getting reelected again and again, that tells lot about American society. It’s just not good

  15. Of course America is “more like Trump” than you want to admit. Have you been there lately? Trump didn’t create the American divide, he simply fed off it.

    • Spot on

    • Woody Wood. I’ve been saying that for years. Trump is the poster board of America’s sexism, racism, xenophobia, and homophobia. He and his supporters feed from one another and willfully trade democracy to indulge themselves on their perceived fear of anyone that disagrees with their rancid narrative about who is an American and what America is.

    • He MAGNIFIED and EMBRACED and CELEBRATED ALL of the WORST TRAITS of the White Supremacists who were Emboldened when Obama was elected! THEY ARE ALL SCUM!

    • @Starshine
      You forgot insecure misogyny

    • @John Deegan You’re right, sexism and misogyny aren’t the same thing!

    The rest of the world is saying RIP America

    • Beverley Price | November 4, 2020 at 3:42 PM | Reply

      @Nis Num looks like you want someone to fight with please go away I don’t have anything to prove to you nor do I have to be quiet because you don’t want to hear what I am saying

    • @Beverley Price Again, you’re hypocritical, and worse. You made a post, I replied. That’s what happens in forums. The exchange went from there. Now, take the time to comprehend your own posts/words, then possibly, you can comprehend my responses. And now, look at your arrogance: “go away”. You dictate who can post, or not? Also, why are you now lying? No where have I even implied for you to, “be quit”. – – Heck, I have even agreed with you, partially. – – You talk about the USA, but don’t have the guts to state something so simple as your nationality. – Obviously, my initial assessment of you was correct. Thank you for proving that. Have the last word. I know you have to. Then, we will be done.

      It won’t be very peaceful

    • Why, we’re getting a great new president who knows our laws, constitution , history and democracy! He can finish sentences and pronounce all the words correctly, not like ole trumpty dumptey! Made so many mistakes! Wont even get daily briefings from his own staff! No wonder he fails at everything! He goes golfing and no working! That will do it over and over did has failed at every business he has tried! He’s the fakest thing out there!

  17. I’m honestly and deeply embarrassed to be an American. Knowing so many people not only support, but admire and love him and his ways completely disgusts me to my very heart and soul.

    • I heard Mexico is nice this time of year, check it out.

    • @Ricky Spanish you should do standup comedy. But it would require intelligence. Whoops, looks like you’re out of luck

    • @Mike Wigs 100% A cold one on me Mike 🍺✌

    • @Sir Scribe Yes kid because only the super intelligent believe in 76 genders, racist trees, and worry about the minimum wage because they are broke, right? Don’t worry, if you work hard you might get out of the drive-thru someday.

    • Biden I arguably a more evil human than Trump.. so how would it be better if more people voted for him? Honestly he is far worse when it come to impressing black and has a much larger mountain of corpses under his feet..

  18. Gerhard Rinkens | November 4, 2020 at 5:07 AM | Reply

    Yes, that is exactly right: America is more like Trump than Americans like to admit… but that is nothing new…. it’s been like that since a very long time….

    • @Kevin Since when did you end famine? You are showing your ignorance.

    • @Raygo Have Americans out Hitlered Hitler?
      “The overall conclusion reached is that the United States most likely has been responsible since WWII for the deaths of between 20 and 30 million innocent people (babies, children, the handicapped, grandparents, etc.) in wars and conflicts scattered over the world. To the families and friends of these victims it makes little difference whether the causes were U.S. military action, proxy military forces, the provision of U.S. military supplies or advisors, or other ways, such as economic pressures applied by our nation. They had to make decisions about other things such as finding lost loved ones, whether to become refugees, and how to survive. And the pain and anger is spread even further. Some authorities estimate that there are as many as 10 wounded for each person who dies in wars. Their visible, continued suffering is a continuing reminder to their fellow countrymen. It is essential that Americans learn more about this topic so that they can begin to understand the pain that others feel. Someone once observed that the Germans during WWII “chose not to know.” We cannot allow history to say this about our country. The question posed above was “How many September 11ths has the United States caused in other nations since WWII?” The answer is: possibly 10,000. ” source: James A. Lucas

      @Queen Nefertiti YOU ARE 100% CORRECT. When they show you who they are believe them…

    • The Trump Cult has allowed America to be much like Vomit!!

  19. America is the Roman Empire on the brink of it’s demise!

    • Please do not insult the Roman Empire. It lasted more than a 1000 years. America’s empire will be a wink in history.

    • As a gentler response to the gentleman’s comment on Rome; the empire didn’t massively crash or collapse but faded from significance. Our only advantage is to be cognizant of this so we can manage the transition; keep services active; maintain some semblance of trade. We have to keep several hundred million people from starving to death when the Midwest goes completely militant.

  20. Is America More Like Trump Than We’d Like To Admit? Yep.
