    1. @Leonard Ball I don’t know man, that sounds even weirder due to Trump being president.

      So how many innocent people need to die for Trump to stay president or the best question should be what is the total number of around 300,000 dead so far and counting?

    1. @Rob Liston Yes! Another four years of Trump’s glorious presidency!!! I would say that Trump’s likeness belongs on Mt. Rushmore, but more appropriately, his likeness should be carved into the side of El Capitan. Our greatest president, EVER!

    2. @Rob Liston According to the MSM? LOL! It ain’t official ’till it’s official. Biden will never be anything but a crooked politician, and Harris will only be a commie. But keep your hopes up, you never know, maybe Xi will give them honorary positions in the Chinese “government”.

    1. @batgurrl

      Yes,
      I forgot about Letita James.

      She’s ready and set to go on January 20th,2021.

      We’re definitely on the same page.

    2. @high voltage The government uses Tax Payer money..Handout’s is money given to other’s who the government determines what Tax payer’s should pay for.

    3. @Jay Singer as a native New Yorker and baby boomer I’m in that group of people who has hated him since the 1980s. And yes, Trump Tower in person is even more tacky and gauche than on TV

    4. @Jay Singer I think she will wait till the 21st as to not ruin
      Biden’s inauguration with the ‘breaking news’ all day but I could be wrong. Then again on the 20th he might have to dragged out kicking and screaming so that would be the perfect time to cuff him too

    5. @batgurrl

      I think she would wait until the inauguration is over.

      Then the next day,she will get the orange freak and his family.

      I can’t wait!!!!!!!

  1. Lock them up! Enough is enough! Nobody’s above the law! Stop letting these grifters fleece America/World!

    1. @Linda Campbell Pelosi will probably lose her position, she might just keel over, heaven forbid. Talk about a bittersweet event, her funeral, lol Nobody knows her true age, I think Moses may have. IDK that’s why we need to vote the Democrats out both houses.
      I have to vote again in the GA runoffs, I guess they didn’t manage to fix it as well as the presidential election.
      Thanks

    2. @CHOPPER GIRL It seems to me that Trump is causing as much chaos and damage on his way out as possible hence my comparison. You are absolutely correct that Trump/Mango Mussolini, is a right wing celebrity despot.

    3. @Gigi ..read something reliably enlightening..something
      that challenges your discerment skills ..you are boring us to distraction

    4. @C’est Moi so fair, free and transparent elections are “boring” to you? That is a wonderful attitude to take at a time when so many people are frustrated and angry. They are running out of food and money; like a powder keg waiting to ignite. Responsible and transparent government is in the best interest of Americans; regardless to what their beliefs are.

    1. @lilly pad
      I do not worry. The word of God is clear, God’s children are not to worry or be anxious. You are not a logical person, but I am. I see that you consistently make deductions that aren’t a logical conclusion from the premise. You are mixing up the pronouns speaking of Donald Trump’s and my understanding of forgiveness as The Bible teaches when they are widely different. I pray for Donald Trump’s salvation because it’s easy to see no one is teaching him the truth about Jesus Christ. As for you, I’m not going to debate with you. If you’re comfortable with what The Holy Spirit has revealed to you then so be it. Remain blessed and safe. Goodbye.

    1. @ra5928
      I think at first Trump thought if he held enough court cases that he might get lucky and find some voter fraud, but after the first ten or so court cases were dismissed because of lack of evidence he went into full metal jacket grift mode. So far his “Leaders fund” has amassed $200+ million that he can virtually do anything he likes with, including paying all his children exorbitant amounts of money to support him. He even bought lots of Don Jr’s books with the fund, presumably to be used to light fires or as toilet paper. Why would the grifter stop the court action and recounts, as so far they have only cost him $10 million and he has made a profit of $200 million in just one month?

    2. @Greg Exelby
      You sound a lot like a flat earther. They ignore 400+ years of scientific evidence that the earth is approximately spherical in shape and revolves around the sun … because 《add some nonsense statement here not supported by evidence》. This is pretty much what deluded Trump supporters are doing at present.

    3. @David Brisbane

      I think I heard him say, and certainly some of his followers have told me, that his plan is to get to the federal Supreme Court. They tell me that losing in the state courts is all part of the plan.

      I’m assuming that the stacking of the scotus is/was also part of that plan.

      I guess we’re going to see.

    1. No they shouldn’t, nor will there be a need to. 
      M anufactured 
      S tories to
      N umb
      B rainwash
      C ontrol

      so useful idiots don’t find out about Massive Election Fraud.

    2. @lilly pad : In Nixon’s case it was covering up for the spooks that broke into the DNC offices in the Watergate hotel.

  2. The only reason a family would ever need a nondisclosure would be if you were committing crimes and other family members knew about those crimes.

    1. “It is time to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C. This is why I’m proposing a package of ethics reforms to make our government honest once again.”

      “[Goldman Sachs] is a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.”
      ― The Donald @ election campaign ad, October 2016

      “I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular [i.e. cabinet] positions I just don’t want a poor person.”
      [Three of his top advisers — Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and chief strategist Steve Bannon — have worked at investment bank Goldman Sachs.]
      ― The Donald @ rally in Iowa, June 2017

      “This thing is a killer if it gets you. If you’re the wrong person, you don’t have a chance.”
      “So this rips you apart. It is the plague.”
      [Trump made the comments three days after he tweeted that the virus “will soon be in full retreat!”]
      ― The Donald @ phone call with journalist Bob Woodward , April 2020

      “I don’t want to pivot… If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.”
      ― The Donald @ interview with Wisconsin television station WKBT, August 2016

    2. Trump Jr.: Let’s loot the White House.
      Eric & Ivanka: We’re in!
      Jared: Wait Dad hadn’t signed the pardons yet.

    3. Yup- Trump’s bid for a Casino in Sydney, Australia was rejected by the Australian Government because their background check came up with DTs mob connections- pretty much tells the whole story…….

    1. Patrick Kingfisher Kennedy
      – So did you accept a Pardon from the King of all Kings?? or are you still guilty???

    2. I was wondering how long it’d take for folks to remember that getting a pardon is based on accepting guilt for a conviction. I remember it when the racist Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio (sorry if I buggered spelling his name) was asked on camera when Donald pardoned him if Joe understood that his acceptance of Donald’s pardon required Joe to admit his guilt. The look on his face was hilarious especially when he denied any guilt whatsoever and the reporter asked if he was turning down Donald’s pardon. I didn’t know middle age racist white cops could turn soooooo many shades of red so quickly.

    1. Just think if Trump had another 4 years?

      Trump will do plenty of harm with the time he has left in office. No doubt!

    1. @Andrew Wang it’s the same thing. What they want is *immunity against prosecution.*

      And no, what presidents do is (generally) not criminal. In fact, quite the opposite, as per Article 2 of the Constitution. They have ENORMOUS freedom to act, and an ENORMOUS _obligation_ to do so, on behalf of the country. So, for example ordering a drone strike that hits a hospital because it contains a terrorist cell (or because of bad Intel) is not criminal.

      If that strike was done to assassinate a political rival… well, that’s completely different.

      I dislike Bush Junior immensely, but I’ve seen no evidence that he wasn’t acting with what he thought was the country’s best interests at heart (even if other interests also existed at the same time, because, of course they do), even when he was lying to the public about WMDs.

      Trump is no George W. Bush. The world should be so lucky.

    2. @Blargleman The Skeptic Nixon was too stupid. He never used his presidential immunity. President Trump uses his immunity almost everyday.

    3. @Andrew Wang Nixon never had “presidential immunity” against corrupt acts, and neither does Trump.

    4. @Andrew Wang They’re only half right it’s both. A republic is defined as a political system in which the supreme power is vested upon the citizenry that is entitled to vote for its representatives and officers responsible to them, while a democracy is defined as a government of the people and by the people exercised through elected or direct representative. It can be difficult to distinguish between a democracy and a republic, and therefore it would be rational to conclude that the United States is both a democracy and a republic.

  3. anybody honestly believes that the crook cares if a pardon is an admission of guilt???? come on guys…as long as he goes scot free anything will work.

    1. Rere Simone anybody honestly believe there wasn’t mass voter fraud is an imbecile. If you really cared about ‘democracy’ you would wouldn’t pretend the election was rigged. Joe Biden will not become president!

    2. His own sister and niece said he would lie, cheat and steal to get what he wants… his conscience was damaged decades ago.

  4. …Its lucky for Trump that the election was rigged otherwise he would have ended up without any votes at all…

    1. Just watched Trump rally, Rock star quality performance, nothing but truth power punches to the left, where’s sleepy Biden, hiden? Kamals basement? HA HA Ha!!!
