      @Delilah Weeks Oh I am 100 percent AMERICAN little girl. You just hate hearing the truth

    • Yes he going to destroy the United States the only good thing is Mitch and all the rest of the Republicans will go with the rest of us.

      @Toni Ortiz Wishful thinking LOL

      @Toni Ortiz It is not going to be about the politicians. This is going to be an issue the people will decide along with 25,000 reward project veritas is offering for tips in Pennsylvania. The narcs are about to spill the beans

  2. Trump is the classic conman. Don’t let the dust settle.

    • @Royce Gunner tRump is like the son of a “Las Vegas time-share” scam owner, good at the small room pitch, but not the worst.
      Stealing sales from other salesmen, getting them to do his paperwork and blaming them when sales slumped…all the other salesmen had to put up with him because of Dad…
      Then Dad died. And things got unimaginably worse.
      The republiCONS knew this and went with it. A LOT of “average” Americans did too

    • @TheBase1aransas This has been debunked, tRump has lost is going to jail is going bankrupt (again) so are his kids and the rest of his crime family…
      And more…
      Get over it. You republiCONS are living in the past.
      You still want to bring up your defeat in the election of last week…
      Biden won tRump lost. GET OVER IT.

    • TheBase1aransas | November 9, 2020 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      @J Barnhart Biden hasn’t been certified by ANY State so far. We’ve uncovered TONS of evidence of cheating. Where is your Confidence if you know everything was Legal? #NothiingCanStopWhatsComing

    • @TheBase1aransas I repeat:
      Get over it. You republiCONS are living in the past.
      You still want to bring up your defeat in the election of last week…
      Biden won tRump lost.
      GET OVER IT.

      @J Barnhart You and the #CCP controlled media have thrown every lie possible lie at Trump for 5 years. It all failed. The BIG STEAL will fail as well because there is OVERWHELMING evidence of Fraud and Cheating. The Esper firing today was because your planned Military Coup is not only going to FAIL, it’s going to take down the Deep State.
      1. To have a successful coup, a leader must control the military.
      2. Trump just fired DOD Secretary and installed a flunky.
      3. This is serious.
      4. Will Republicans speak up, or will they remain complicit?

      The *Stable Genius* is always 10 steps ahead. I suggest you begin preparations for the inevitable #EXPOSURE immediately.

  3. That is the only thing the Dump does well, firing people. America’s got news for him. “Donnie, you’re FIRED!”

  4. Trump’s vindictive, like that tenant that trashes their apartment before they are evicted.

  5. American Outside | November 9, 2020 at 2:50 PM | Reply

    Trump about to make a move. He’s lost the Presidency and he will burn it down one way or the other before he leaves. He can not be trusted.

  6. So he fired the guy who said you couldn’t use the military against US citizens. I wonder what happens next?

    • @Queen Of Wands

      Haven’t modern U.S. troops already been prepared for urban warfare? They’ve been fighting in urban areas for decades now.

      In any case and with all due respect, I don’t know you or your friend. So please excuse me if I can’t simply take your word for it that our troops have been trained to turn on us all.

      @Cynna1065 right I understand. I was just sharing with you what I was told. Take it with a grain of salt if you like, but based on what he told me it is possible, Unfortunately!

    • @IMPEACH BIDEN 😀 😅

    • Larinda Nomikos | November 9, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      Well, that’s what the Constitution says.

    • Exposing the incerection act. Then Turkey as been trying to take a tiny country with a lot of oil and minerals so he just went to the W.H so he as well quietly let the nuke security team go.he’ll probably nuke ARMENIA sending us into w as r with Russia. Because USA and Turkey belong to Turkey has trump towers in Turkey and he has proof Kushner okayed the death of mr k. So we in big trouble.

  7. He will burn down the government just to say he rules the ashes.

    • Clever!

    • 😄Mind blown

    • But the concept of destroying to save was not invented for Vietnam. In 1940, before the U.S. had entered World War II, a piece in the Atlanta Daily World used the metaphor to explain why the fight against fascism abroad was not an excuse for intolerance of dissent at home: “We won’t save democracy by killing it … and we won’t make American democracy worth saving by destroying it in the so-called attempt to save it.” Stephen L. Carter
      , Bloomberg Opinion, 10 February 2018.

    • He’ll try but one way or another he will be leaving the White House weather temperature on record or with a rifle pointed to his back that’s up with Donald Trump!

  8. The logic is that Espy refused to use the military police against citizens. He will install a Trump yes man and soon we’ll see military police pointing guns at us. Trump will continue to try and turn this country into Nazi Germany.

  9. It looks like Mark Esper said “No Sir, You can’t do this!”

    • @sharon nagle If I were a betting man Id say Trump was asking for Marital Law and Mark Esper said, “Sir respectfully… you can’t do that!”

    • @Peter Marchi it isn’t impossible to believe.

    • @sharon nagle no it’s not impossible to believe but no amount of lawsuits and no amount of recounts can overcome the numbers.

    • My guess as I said before Trump gave them lawful order and he refused to comply, unfortunately we’re witnessing our president have a nervous breakdown on live TV what we’re dealing with is a man who never lost at anything he ever did, and now he has!

    • @Peter Marchi pitiful, isn’t it?

  10. “It makes no logical sense whatsoever”. This is Trump, and there’s nothing logical about him. He’s lashing out because he’s a brat, and brats do things like that.

      @Noni Yea So he just lost the election and to ease his lost soul he wants to exact revenge on the people who work for him NOW, yes now, when he only has over 2 months left as president. Same story, he is playing the blame game now to his Defense Secretary and he tweets it like a revengeful girlfriend. At this point now, Frump needs to suffer slowly for his crimes after January 20. And nobody, the military, Republicans, police, have ANY authority to STOP HIM. This is insane what is happening to America. His children are also complicit and as dumb as a lightbulb for letting this happen. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE for the love of God make him stop whatever he is about to do.

    • @Paolo Facciolo Amen! 💙🕊️

  11. Ok Esper, time to tell everything! No reason to cover up anymore

  12. When will Trump’s enablers FINALLY stand up to him?!! He needs to have checks and balances in this lame duck session.

  13. Trump: I’m firing all the 75 million voters, including Melania, who voted for Biden.

  14. It makes logical sense if you’re planning a coup and Esper won’t go along with it.

  15. Because he himself was fired by the American people and instead of being a man about it, he’s acting like a spoiled baby.

    • @Amplify Before you start using those big words you don’t understand, you should finish your GED so you can learn how to spell and punctuate.

    • José Hunter's EW&F Remixes | November 9, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      Or maybe he’s putting a Defense Secretary in place who’ll back him when he commits treason and tries a coup on Jan 21st

    • José Hunter's EW&F Remixes | November 9, 2020 at 7:20 PM | Reply

      @Amplify You’re incoherent.
      Before Moby Trump ran, I barely knew who the fat orange slob was; probably because I don’t waste my time watching TV

    • José Hunter's EW&F Remixes | November 9, 2020 at 7:21 PM | Reply

      @WokePatriot AmusedandAmazed WTF is voter frood? Your Google Translate isn’t working, comrade

    • @Amplify Your ramblings are extremely hard to follow! Wake up, Trump is unstable!


    • I was hoping that he’d start with Guiliani. Giuliani’s Quid pro quo attempt to blackmail the Ukrainian government by withholding allocated funds until they manufactured fake evidence against the Bidens led to his impeachment. Giuliani’s promised October surprises with fake emails and the laptop was a dud. So why’s he not blaming Crazy Rudy for sabotaging his reelection? Wonder what dirt Rudy has on One-and-Done Donnie?

    • He should be blaming idiots like HIS KIDS! Coked out Jr and his pal GarGoyle help bring him down! So perfect!!!!

    • At this point, Trump has lapsed into self-pity.

    *Trump’s taking down as many people as he can with him*

  18. Ah, the lashing out begins and he will take it out on anyone and everyone, even his most loyal backers.

  20. Trump: is a bad boyfriend. ” If I can’t have you, nobody will.”
