    Russian money laundering.
    And you wonder why t’rump can’t say a single bad word against Putin. 🤔😆😅😂🤣

      @Eleanor Dixon trump is afraid of putin. He gives him a very gentle handshake , bows his head and never says anything bad about russia.

    • I am dumbfounded that the American political and legal system is so weak to allow such a Buffon to prevail over their country and he will most likely walk away with the whole cookie jar under melanias arms.

      Fox is barely dipping in their toe…. they don’t have the stones to question anything Mein Fücküp does. Interviewing Mary, they would be admitting her validity. I thought Fox was pretty bad when Obama was in office, them sticking up for and excusing everything Trump does is sickening. 😩

      @jaymtl79 She is explaining why he was horrible to her father. She said her aunt was dismissed from the bench because of tax related issues and how it affected her. She spoke a lot about the grandfather. She says her grandmother had very little to do with her sons upbringing. She spoke of her own experience as well.

  12. Michael Cohen said, in 2016, that Trump was “a racist, a cheat, and a conman”. It was quite clear at the time if you looked.

  13. Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton said, “When they go low, we go high”. We just were unaware how low the Trump family could go. Now we see.

      Nobody was prepared for how super low trump can go. We are people of a certain standard of moral values not aware how criminals think and act. Now when it’s on display we are gobsmacked and up to a certain point helpless. Hard to believe that a person is so without empathy having such a lack of social responsibility like trump. And this man shall be a leader whom we trust??? No way!!!

    I want to see Donald Trump homeless, and struggling to survive in the gutter. That’s what he deserves.

  17. The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 yrs.
    The “self-made man” who tax dodged a $413M “gift” from daddy’s real estate empire.
    The “genius” who hides his college grades.
    The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
    The “playboy” who pays for $ех.
    The “Christian”, twice-divorced philanderer, who never asks God for forgiveness.
    The “man of the Bible” who declined to name even one of his favorite Bible verses.
    The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
    The “patriot” who dodged the draft; family tradition: grandfather was kicked out of Bavaria for draft-dodging, father bribed a doctor tenant to exempt Donald from military service.
    The “paragon of honesty” whose new immigration rules would have kept his and his senior anti-immigration adviser Stephen Miller’s grandparents out.
    The “steadfast defender of our nation’s borders” who married an alleged undocumented immigrant and illegal worker who sponsored her parents into the country by “chain migration”.
    The “staunch Republican” who donated to Democrats at all gov’t levels: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer.
    The “innocent man” who refuses to testify.
    The “President” who takes no responsibility.
    The “tough, strong man“ who wears makeup and hairspray but never a mask.
    The “deal maker” who has yet to close a deal.

    If America reelects this guy, it deserves the dystopian future that follows.

I mean we could have a great system in this country.”

  18. Trump was the first guy in the history of organized crime to get the Justice Department to work for him. So he has that going for him.

    • @Ginger Nightmare Yes, I have heard that and I certainly hope that is the case. But you never know in politics We shall have to wait and see. As James Carville has pointed out, he thinks Chump will resign after Nov/20 and let Dense take over and engineer pardons for Chump, his family, and many political cronies. If such happens we may well get into an extended legal and political free for all that will last for a considerable time. Noted legal scholar and retired prosecutor, Glen Kirschner, has opined that presidential pardons can be voided and nullified because such is not mentioned or prohibited in the constitution. And as such pardon nullification may well be done for the first time in history and litigated to the Supreme Court to establish new legal and constitutional precedent. I personally expect a very very nasty and prolonged legal and political fight somewhat along these lines after Nov/20. Chump will stop at nothing to attempt to protect himself and his cronies, so I do expect the worst from him. But the real question is whether or not Biden has the courage and political will to follow through and stay the course against Chump in the future. Only time will tell, but I certainly hope that he does. I am just not that confident that he actually will. But the saving grace may well be the SDNY and their criminal investigation of Chump. They will proceed against Chump with their state investigation and potential criminal charges regardless of what happens with Biden, pardons, or anything else at the national/federal level. Chump is in grave danger with SDNY and so may many of his cronies as well.

    • @Ginger NightmareReally? Thanks for clearing up who Don Corleone was. Al Capone had a few corrupt judges working for him. Trump has the whole Justice Department. Let’s not tarnish Capone’s name by comparing him to Trump.

    • Ginger Nightmare | July 18, 2020 at 10:07 PM | Reply

      @Corey HamCool. I want to trust Biden on this, even though.. back in Feb. Everyone was wondering why Trump attacked Biden so. The reason is Biden can get rich Republicans to vote for him. Taxes for the rich will not go up. there will be no college debt forgiveness.. and still not a proper Medicare for all. Biden has committed to appointing young progressives. So you are saying Trump will resign, right before the election, and set up Pence. It is interesting. Trump is too much of a sociopath to even consider stepping down. I think the Trump criminal family will be the first ever to not attend.. The Inauguration. Like the Bin Laden’s .. off to Saudi Arabia. Already got the Trump hotel built there.

      @hvymettle Trump was the first guy in the history of organized crime to get the Justice Department to work for him. You do remember Bill Barr shooting off the hip for Reagan in the Iran/Contra.

    • @Ginger Nightmare It is all speculation as to how this will play out after Biden gets elected. I just read a lot about it and report and comment on what i hear and read. Nobody really knows how this will all play out, and certainly not me. But I am pretty confident that Chump will use any means he can to cause chaos and attempt to protect himself and his cronies. He has done that his whole life and his whole term in office, so I doubt he will change now. And secondly, the democrats have always appointed professional and competent people when they were in office. And I would expect they would do the same again. What is very uncertain is whether or not they will actually be able to make any substantive change. Personally I doubt it, since i do not see them proposing “visionary” changes that deal with the major structural issues facing the country. Rather they are nibbling around the edges with minor proposals. But that is the political system in modern politics due to many factors … primarily big money and vested interests. I want a FDR type visionary who will tackle visionary and major structural issues. Unfortunately there is no politician I am aware of anywhere close to that. So Biden or anyone else for that matter will be a huge improvement over Chump and at least a step in the right direction.

    *For everything Trump has done to our nation as President, most definitely he should be prosecuted, and lose everything he has from decades of wrong doing, and made an example, so that We can restore the rule of Law, and go forward as a Nation, and end all this criminality on both sides of the aisle, and have a Just nation for the People !*
