  1. Donald J Trump is killing this country

    • @Eve Again you’re right gun wielding patriots out protecting businesses from leftist communists are definitely the problem. Your communist ideals will never thrive in my country.

    • Justin Wright | October 1, 2020 at 3:11 PM | Reply

      Dan Dan Rachel’s November 4 2020 show

    • Eve Again… exactly. We in the developed world are appalled at the America Donny has “created”.
      He is globally despised and ridiculed by allies.
      Russia treats him more like a play-thing (no doubt their hold on him will be uncovered soon but $’s are no doubt involved).
      The defence of such an individual is stunning. How can these people hope to pass on honesty, empathy, integrity… to their children? (Rhetorical).
      A view from afar

      @Eve Again
      “… Trump only cares for his own self serving interests”
      Got any proof of that sweetheart, or are you absorbing too much FAKE NEWS? Because of all the FAKE NEWS, suckers like you believe the propaganda and are no longer visiting his hotels.
      So Explain to me how then he is profiting from being President?
      I know most of you ladies don’t understand math or business so you may need a “Conservative” man to help with that.

      PS, The link below is what we call “proof”, which I’m using to validate my point.
      Are you learning anything?

  2. What we saw were the actions of a spoiled child. Trump is not worthy of being president.

      darena12 Right Professor and it was the Electoral that saved you then, and November 3 2020 from your own ignorance .

    • Justin Wright oh look. Moving the goal post. How typical. Over 200k Americans are dead and our president owes who knows who half a billion dollars. You conservatives are simply cultists at this point. Try using your brain for once in your life

    • Justin wright… you are delusional…probably sitting in a dark room in Russia.. praying the traitor who slimed into the White House will make your day… too bad ..but tRump is on his way out and you can go back to your ashes and sawdust dreams

    • Justin Wright | October 1, 2020 at 3:44 PM | Reply

      Marty Thomas I’m confident @Marty Thomas your scenario confirms just who is delusional from alcohol abuse. Get yourself in a program, you’re an embarrassment to your family and friends

    • As you Marxist scum are suing in every court in America to cheat! Just remember who OWNS the ONLY court that matters! WE HAVE EYES YOU EVIL DEMONS!
      Big news!

      A Maine court sided with the RNC and upheld the:

      *Ban on ballot harvesting
      *Voter ID requirements
      *Election Day deadline
      *Signature match requirements

      Clean sweep in a bogus Democrat lawsuit, and another victory in our fight to!

  3. A brilliant observation. Sad but true.

    • @Jeffrey Dahmer Oh this troll again. . . Meanwhile GOP claim to be the law & order party with family values decrying abortions while male Republicans encourage their partners to quietly have abortions and Republicans like Fioronia, Trump, Gingrich, Cheney embarrass their peers and deny basic rights to families. Christian values? When they know not even their own religious teachings refusing to remove the plank from their eye, let he without sin cast the first stone, love your enemies, whatever you do for the least of these you do unto me. Trump continues to act like a victim though he comes from much privilege which he squandered. He also acts out refusing to treat others with respect, and his party supports such behaviour. This is the Republican Party of today: chaotic evil.

      S Miller ….you’re right..Jeffrey is laughable and crude! I used to argue with another troll…Andy Garcia. He was a disgusting pig 🐷! He’s gone or changed his name…he was banned from the internet or he died from the virus! Notice they are not many Trump supporters commenting on this site….take care..🇨🇦💔💕🤥🦠💀

      Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden flatly denied at Tuesday night’s debate that his lawyer son took huge sums of money from corrupt oligarchs and Chinese communists during his vice presidency, but Treasury Department reports show that Hunter Biden did receive the money.
      President Trump chose to make an issue of Hunter Biden’s cash haul from Russia, Ukraine and China with the implication that unsavory figures were trying to buy Vice President Biden and the Obama administration.
      “When somebody gets 3½ million dollars from the mayor of Moscow,” Mr. Trump said..

    • America has a job. Time to take out the trash in the white house

  4. Trump was mad because we now know he is BROKE and not a real billionaire.

    • @Mike D Trump is a braggart if nothing else. If he were a billionaire who legitimately earned his money his taxes would be on a green screen behind him every time he appeared on TV.

    • u are wrong he i s a billionaire, but he just owes more than the billionaires he has

    • V B Not much of a fan of the right to financial privacy, eh?

    • I am thankful the NY Times article came out before the debate. So we can view his obnoxious behavior through that lens, that he is a failed businessman/taxcheater. Otherwise, his strategy to bully and appear strong might have been overlooked as his personal style.

      But he is the president making you libs cry…my God your party lost to a broke game show host…makes your party look like special needs kids riding the short bus

      @Vivian Cathcart Ok.

    • @Vivian Cathcart the only viruses being spewed is that from the Democrat election committee ie; the MSM!! Richard Madcow is a disgusting left wing hack pretending to be a journalist!!

    • Brian nave.. you sick’s about someone doing what you suggest to you.. maybe we could experiment on you to see how it works… don’t suggest something you wouldn’t want to experience yourself

    • You guys are screwed!
      A majority of those attending President Trump’s rally in Duluth, Minnesota, were not Republicans 60% democrats, and over 17 percent of those in attendance did not vote in the last presidential election cycle, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced on Thursday, citing data gleaned from the event.

      The Trump campaign is adding more voters than Democrat Joe Biden in three key battleground states heading into the election.

      NBC News reported that in Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, voter registration numbers are trending right.

      Four years ago, Trump won those three states, along with Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin, by less than 5 percentage points.

      According to NBC, the numbers show that:

      Republicans in Florida added a net 195,652 registered voters from the March primary through the end of August, while Democrats added 98,362.
      Republicans in Pennsylvania added a net 135,619 voters from the GOP primary in June through September, compared to the 57,985 voters Democrats added.
      Republicans in North Carolina added a net 83,785 voters from the March primary through September, compared to the 38,137 voters Democrats added.
      Arizona Republicans are trailing Democrats in net voter registration, 31,139 to 29,667, but the GOP’s registration numbers there and in Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina are increasing at a higher pace than they were ahead of the 2016 election.

      Your pain and tears will be fuel for our souls. Your Marxist revolution is going down. And when this election is over we are coming for you. I mean that in a good way!

    Trump revels in chaos and destruction. He’s pure evil.

    • @Monaco Athlete, you are absolutely right. Trump is twisted and vile.

      The most disgusting and sick con artist. All he want is to tar all Americans with same brush. His world of chaos, corruption and demeaning others. Should be put to an end with a definitive defeat in November. Period.

      President Trump holds rallies. Nobody gets hurt and no damage.

      Sounds like you people have rocks for brains.

      Trump 2020… Yeah!!!

    • @Tamatik Canada Sources? Oh right, you don’t have any. Stop drinking the cool-aid loser!

  9. Trump never had any intentions of having a legitimate debate. Mainly because he’s mentally, intellectually, temperamentally, and emotionally incapable of such adult things. Trump’s intentions were to go into the debate like a T€rrorist, and blow the entire thing up with his outrageous behavior. And that’s exactly what he did.

    Trump is an abuser trying to convince America she is not able to get him out of her life. Free yourselves! Vote him out!

      Janine Daniell ….very true! Thanks!

    • Close, but I have three children, and I nipped that behavior in the bud, by the time they were 18 months old.

    • I respectfully disagree. He didn’t throw a tantrum, he launched a cold-blooded, all-out, attack designed to bring out Biden’s stutter.

    • he can only understand ‘Fight’. A Debate is a presentation and defense of ideas.

      Memmor ..trump never follows the rules! He comports himself like a child…Hope Hicks ,a close friend of his, has been tested positive for COVID and is at home and sick. The President was at a fund raiser yesterday where people were close together,indoors not wearing masks. An entourage of people,including Trump and Melania, left the WH on The Air Force One helicopter ! I don’t know what’s happening, but I hope everybody is fine. If Trump is positive and gets sick it’s a real worry. Some people never learn! 🇨🇦🇺🇸🌊💙🌊💙😱

    “Donald Trump is assassinating the presidency”

  14. OMG, never thought about it this way Rachel.

  15. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together would realize that to save the country would be to vote tRump out of office, not run away and say, let him have it.

    • Kelly Willis : It’s beyond my understanding that after that debacle of a debate, there are still undecided voters? Didn’t they see or understand what was playing on their TVs?

  16. People vote! If everyone, convince one person to vote, we will let all politicians know who calls the.shots.

  17. It’s a safe bet that he’s going to get worse. He’s desperate and he’s stupid enough to try anything.

    • LOL…who is gaslighting except you idiots? You literally fabricate quotes, you literally pretend that he has not answered the same question over and over again, you actually pretend that it isn’t left wing lunatics rioting all over the country.
