    explain how trump picked pence? how trump picked tillerson? putin knew these guys better than trump. why would trump pick them?

    • Hint: Trump “picked” all of them at Putin’s command.

      – Energy = Rick Perry.
      – Education = Betsy DeVos.
      – Housing = Ben Carson.
      – Treasury = Steven Mnuchin
      – Commerce = Wilbur Ross.
      – AG = William Barr.
      – etc.

      See a pattern?

      Putin’s picks were meant to destroy (faith in) the U.S. government (corruption + incompetance) from within. Trump is just the most obvious iceberg.

    • That is exactly right.(!)

      Pence is worse than trump and pence is his non-impeachment insurance

    All roads lead to Putin! Everything Trump does benefit Putin! Why?

    • let us not forget putin’s close pal and oligarch deripaska. moscow mitch basically handed him the keys to kentucky thru that aluminum plant.

    • Money, money, money

      The one constant is the 1% Oligarchy in each country. They own all the corporations including the banks and media. They control who runs each country..who gets elected, which policies are passed, which war is going to cause mass migrations…because they have ALL the money to influence and buy those things. Trump’s their puppet to bring down America s Constitution. They already have a new one. Google it!

  4. Putin cashed out just before the impeachment hearings. Northern Syria belongs to Russia.

  5. What do you get when you have 18 grubby old white men, and only 1 powerful woman?

    • Lapin074, your name might be rabbit, you also act like it, well better prepare for a state funeral if you want this mummie for president…

    • @rob2508 Say that again, Rob, but this time in flawless Russian. Throw in a little goose stepping for our further entertainment!

    • Ted Thompson, haha that russia obsession is driving you lefties crazy, you can blame Hillary for that…

    • You are simply a royal fool rob, and a pathetic one to. There is so much more that could be said about how ridiculous you and others like you are when it comes to matters of government and politics but it would never come anywhere close to getting through your thick sculls and so I won’t bother. Just know that whether you’re ready to accept it or not (your not) the day of reckoning for this administration and the grand fool at its core is coming, and that will be a sweet day indeed.(!)

    • Dylan Macaya, i don’t get it you seem to be ‘educated’, but still fall for the bs of MSNBC and CNN….wrong school maybe?

  6. *Do the math…The worst night in America’s History was Sept. 21st 19145… It was the Friday night Fred failed to pull out of Mary Ann*

  7. GET ‘EM NANCY!!!

  8. Trump should put a ‘for sale’ sign outside of the white house . What a disgusting sellout.

    • @Maharajji NKB “the great majority support the president?” Really? Did you know that 51% favor impeachment and removal from office? How can you parse that into overwhelming support? You are incredibly misinformed, or you’re just a liar. Doesn’t matter to me, you’re simply wrong.

    • @tgbedini lmao and those polls said Clinton was going to win by a landslide

    • schadell connor | October 18, 2019 at 12:30 PM | Reply

      He already did

  9. Lewis Carroll might have invented his Mad Hatter character,
    but even he couldn’t have imagined MAGA-headed Trump!

    There’s your new photoshop assignment! “The MAD HATTER”

    Footnote for Rachel’s next book on the oil industry which illustrates her point of view: The Role of Royal Dutch Shell in Nigeria!

  11. No need to explain as of now, just observe how putin is winning in the middle east, courtesy of trump’s diplomacy by calamity.

    And if you need more, go back and scrutinize all of trump’s efforts to lift sanctions on russia.

    Or how dysfunctional and divided the US is thanks to trump and his trumpublican party.

    Its these things putin dreamed of, and his wildest dreams have manifested themselves in reality – and he has no intention to stop winning yet!

  12. Pelosi = Patriot

    • @LBF522 lBF522= TDS

    • Nah, it’s more like this:
      Pelosi = narcotic long time sleeper
      If she wouldn’t all the time stand full brake on the impeachment process it could’ve been over long ago…
      And no, she’s not even good at playing one-dimensional chess, let alone two- or three-dimensional chess.
      I’m just surprised that no one is investigating her because her more than obvious reluctance to even make a single step forward until there is no other way but to do so should have been raising some serious suspicious thoughts by now…

    • @Gary Campbell Farce? This entire impeachment thing is on trump…..if obama withheld aid to a country dependent on the foreign country go after rhomney in 2012 prez election…republicans would have impeached him.. 100 percent for sure there would be an investigation. and there is ZERO requirement to have a vote in the house with regards to an investigation…which is what is happening right now…they are investigating…the trial is in senate.

    • 🇺🇸

    • Pelosi – If this capitol crumbles, the one think we will do —– support Israel? Patriot?

    Haha I wish we could clone her. One in the military, one for political action, one for my little sister.

  14. That photo of Nancy Pelosi will become an all time classic.

    • @Flabby Bum Funny how you trolls want to try and babble on other’s threads instead of just creating and tending your own. No one here buying your repuke flipit BS. djt is a traitor and lying conman, the world now knows it so get over it.

    • Indeed. Speaker Pelosi scolding the biggest toddler, donnie booboo trump👶🍼🍼

    • @Andrew Garcia Who put dumpy tRump is his place like he was a 3 year old! Way to go Madam Speaker, the only one in the room with some balls! She owned the ENTIRE room!

    • Still she persisted.

    • @Starman Dx You don’t know any of that. You’re building a narrative around a photo with many different possible interpretations, the more prosaic ones being the more likely. All we do know, is that this photo contradicts Pelosi’s initial version of events, which she later altered when she was told she had been photographed.

  15. Trump is Putin’s putain. Pardon my French.

  16. “Dinosaur juice” in the voice of Brian Williams is exactly what I needed in my life.

  17. Those dudes look like they’re praying for the sweet release of death.

    • They are feeling the knife trump is putting in their backs and hope for the end of this “meeting” so they can head for the emergency room…their lawyers.

    • Patchwork Girl | October 18, 2019 at 10:12 AM | Reply

      I have zero sympathy for that shamefaced lot. Esper lied to the American public and stonewalled Congressional subpoenas after promising to comply. Milley “personal friend of Trump” (according to Trump) promised in his Senate confirmation hearing to “speak truth to power”…obviously didn’t. He’s also known for being willfully blind to politics, and is paying the price for his naivete. I could go on. Those men are complicit. They are Trump’s goons just as much as Barr and Pompeo. They need to answer for the mess they put us in.

  18. Her intellect just blows me away.

  19. Just watched a true patriot General Mattis give a speech at the Al Smith Dinner. Bonespurs is going to have a twitter meltdown when he finds out.

    • @Crystal Giddens As a military man Mattis was reticent to criticize trump when he first resigned, but so much illegal and despicable sh** has occurred since then (Kurd betrayal probably was the straw ) that he found a venue in which to protect 🇺🇸.

      @Bildgesmythe i didn’t think so.

    • Crystal Giddens | October 18, 2019 at 12:06 PM | Reply

      @tin pan alley 1619 Broadway TDS destroys the brain. it is simple, you like that he was Trump bashing. That makes your idea of a “great speech” very shallow. Besides he read the entire thing hardly looking up ever.

    • @Crystal Giddens that’s fine, don’t watch it twice then. No one said you had to like it.☺

  20. Rachel nails it again. Why can’t the USA elect more people like her to positions of responsibility?

    • Source Fractal OOTB | October 18, 2019 at 9:42 AM | Reply

      Terncote …..because the corporations ( Oligarchy) control who runs in the final election.

    • I don’t know if you’re being sarcastic or serious, she can barely keep that joke of a show from getting yanked off.

    • Because the American political sytem is ALL about money. Those days of black and white movies in which poor but honest folk capture the good heart of the people – become president and bring out the best in America – are but a dream long past.
