  1. All Trump’s lies will be documented by historians, and his “legacy” will be that he was a lying, cheating, self-serving, noxious sociopath.

      @Imp Slayer <-- Russian troll farm colleagues refer to him as "Comrade Runnystools" behind his back

    • Historians are lyers- Trump supporters.

    • ” lying, cheating, self-serving, noxious sociopath.” that is the left but we have to add lazy, stupid, entitled and thieving for you guys also

      @Imp Slayer You mean Trump’s lie he told everybody that Russia didn’t help him when thy really did, and they still are. Putin is his master and trump is the puppet.

    It’s always someone else’s fault

    • @brian gardner 🖕🙄🖕

    • @Brawndo CEO wtf are you talking about? Dems picked Trump?? 🤨

    • @Jason m Democratic strategists are currently developing opposition research on Republican primary candidates, hoping to manufacture outrage among the media and voters by exploiting the most extreme voices on the right.

      Of course, this strategy backfired miserably on Democrats in 2016. A leaked memo sent from the Clinton campaign to the DNC in April 2015 outlined the “pied-piper” strategy as elevating Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz in the Republican presidential primaries. Hillary Clinton fared much better in polls against these candidates than she did mainstream Republicans. The memo read, “We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously,” the memo read. The Clinton campaign deduced that Trump’s unpopularity would benefit Hillary Clinton in the general election. In October 2016, several pundits in the mainstream media even thought Clinton could win Texas, a Republican stronghold. Because of this strategy, the Clinton campaign underestimated Trump, which helped him win the presidency. Sadly, Democrats have learned nothing from this painful experience.

    • He sounds just like every spoiled little brat everywhere

    • @Trace 23 mass Human population reduction is good for the environment

  3. The Economy is already in recession, the retail and manufacturing sectors are in free fall. The Fed is pumping billions into the markets to keep it afloat, have been doing this for months.
    10year yeild at record lows along with the 30year. Trump has created a huge bubble with his tax cuts that is about to explode.

      I find what you have offered very interesting although will ask you this. Killing off the masses seems to me to be just as detrimental for the powers that be, in terms of the entire established system collapsing. Forgive me if I am not able to understand or wrap my head around it all, what is to be gained by the authors of this continuing fall?

      Thank you telling our true problem. It is another bubble and will burst in front of our eyes again. I think FRB needs to be reformed. But by who?

      @Imp Slayer Trump cultists like to type insanely in all caps…

    • @Jeremy Backup Where did you get that stat, Paul (Trump will cause an endless recession) Krugman? Google U.S. GDP and then come back and apologize.

  4. When the stock market goes up Trump scream its all because of him but when it tank all of a sudden its Obama, Hilary or the Democrat fault. Everytime I hear Trump it make me want to vomit.

  5. But, didn’t the market start tanking before the Democratic debate? 🤔
    I guess the little details aren’t t’rump’s thing! 😄😆

      If the economy was really as strong as Trump says it is, the deficit wouldn’t be spiralling out of control.

    • Yes that is the true facts it did go down before the debate. Trump’s latest lie is there for the whole world to see but yes the Republican’s base is to blind to call him on it . Wake up people. Stop the lies .

  6. Its always the same with Trump, stock market rises are down to him alone, falls down to anyone but him.

  7. He is incapable of dealing with a crisis .and this proof he is unfit to run this country.he is way in over his head

    An “alternate reality?” Stop putting lipstick on a pig. Just say “he’s lying as usual or again…” Call it what it is. If my kid lies to me he’s not giving me an alternative reality, he’s lying, just like this president*.

    • This is his crisis and he has no choice on ownership, that comes with the job. I almost sure there will be a world recession from now till the election and a very high possibility there will be thousands of cases her considering millions in the US travel to and from foreign countries each month. In fact if people see low levels in this country they may decide to vacation here to get away from a bad situation in their country. If the cases stay below 100 for a few weeks assume Trump is holding back new figures, it has come to the point you can’t trust information coming out of government agencies.

      @myko freder No the dems have been saying for 3 years that this is Obamas economy ok i agree

    • I was wondering how long even the tRump Humper cult members could put up with this BS crap from this mental midget #CrookedDonald. I was also wondering how long it would take for the next REPUBLICAN Recession to happen. It’s been 12 years after all since the last one.

      @Mike Lewis “MSNBC hires known liars.”
      And republiCONS elect them to be our president. Which is worse and more stupid? Hiring them or electing them?

      @andrew chambers if you don’t care if trump lies, than I don’t want to hear you cry when we don’t give him a second term because of all his pathological lying. Because remember you don’t care.

  9. Trump knows a lot about defaulting on bank loans, filing for bankruptcy, and lying……and that’s about it.

  10. 3:03 Please dont do not refer to your leader as the leader of the free world. The free would laughs at him and his efforts to undermine the free world. POTUS leads nothing but chaos.

    The incompetence of this Administration is spooking the markets plus the fact that no one can believe a word the president or his lackeys say.

  12. What interest does he have in a stock market when his life is based on defaulted loans based on inflated figures to acquire them?


    • @andrew chambers You guys said the economy was terrible until the second trump became president then all of a sudden in 1 day everything turned around.

    • @andrew chambers don’t be such a cliche Trumpist. 3 yrs in and he takes all credit, he gets the blame too.

    • andrew chambers | February 27, 2020 at 5:32 PM | Reply

      @Pntngbrn What you gonna do if he wins again?Seriously do you think CNN MNSBC will have the energy to do it all again this none stop badgering and name calling?For anoth 4 years after this next year?Will it tell you anything if he wins again?

    No healthcare, what does that say? Total disaster with an epidemic.

  14. So when it’s up it is all him, when it’s down it’s the Democrats or someone else’s fault. It’s the leaders fault. He said it years ago. Own it *45!

  15. He knows allot about everything! “A stable genius! “ Who clearly knows very little about anything!

    Dumpsterfire Donny says Dumpsterfire Donny always deserves credit when things go well and somebody else is always to blame and has to fix them when they don’t go well.
    “The outstanding negative quality of the totalitarian elite is that it never stops to think about the world as it really is and never compares the lies with reality.”
    Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

  17. “The stock market is something I know a lot about. It goes up and it goes down just like my bankruptcies, I will bankrupt America”.

  18. Trump knows a lot about the stock market??? – he doesn’t own nor has he ever owned any stocks…… according to himself.
    Nothing this guy says is true….nothing. He is a pathological liar and fraud.

  19. “I’m in charge!”

    (problem occurs. WH can’t hide it or pretend it isn’t there)

    “It’s their fault! Boo! Bad Dems!”

    How presidential.

    • That’s why he put Pence in charge. If the coronavirus blows up, he will blame it on Pence and state Pence didn’t do anything. Of course, no one will because DJT won’t give them permission to do so.

    His way of dealing with a crisis basically boils down to: “Who cares, I’m rich enough to not worry.”
