  1. Our choice this election isn’t R or D, it’s being an authoritarian state or a democracy. Trump is blatantly trying to marshal government resources to attack his opponents – asking Pompeo to release e-mails, asking Barr to arrest Biden, having McConnell keep election security at bay, etc………..VOTE BLUE SAVE DEMOCRACY

    • Not just that…Trump is thinking of and will be working on a third term in office if he wins..If he wins he will have all that it takes in the congress to start tampering with the constitution to that end and to earn him a third term and turning the country into another Saudi Arabia

    • Skedward boby – I disagree, heโ€™s old and not a healthy person.

    • Honestly?? You must be thinking of the Obama-Biden administration that weaponized the intelligence agency to thwart an election using the fake Dossier dreamt up by the Clintons!! They also perverted the FISA courts and illegally unmasked American citizens!! Learn politics and stop making a fool of yourself on here!

    • so u have a problem with hillary having the fbi and cia have a lie told about trump so she could deflect from her emails…ur tds is showing..u should get help..and obama knew about the russia hoax…

    • @Joni M.L. I don’t click on links from unknown sources. Any differences are going to center around semantics. The foundational principles are the same. The people vote for their representatives. You want to use nuance in order to minimize the power the people are supposed to have in governance. That’s just a modest form of feudalism.

  2. Trump starts his get well tour with hits like I GOT YOUR CURE to STAND BY ME from the militia to LOCK THEM UP from the dictators DONT MISS IT tickets on sale

  3. Impeach the justice 1-21-20 and cofirm Merrit Garland !

      I agree, though the prospect of achieving the 66 seat Democratic super majority required to do so is practically non-existent in this election. It may be achievable in 2022 when the Senate election map will once again favor the Democrats. Since I view Trump’s entire presidency as illegitimate (he did lose the popular vote by 2.8 million) I would argue that if the required super majority came to pass the Senate remove Gorsuch and replace with Garland, and remove Kavanaugh’s seat to Obama, and remove Coney Barret to be replaced by a woman who will honor RGB’s legacy. There are several talented women on the left coasts supreme courts, Justice Kruger of California, Justice Nelson of Oregon, Justice Whitener of Washington state. If you prefer justices with federal experience there is Justice Wright of the US district court for Minnesota, Justice Pillard of the DC court of appeals, Justice Kelly of the Eight Circuit, Justice Jackson from the DC district court.

  4. If at first you don’t succeed , impeach impeach again.

  5. I applaud the dicipline of the Dems, but let’s see how effective that is against a group of people who have no shame and keep changing the rules back and forth to benefit themselves.

    • Keep changing the rules. LMMFAO
      Biden will try packing the Supreme Court. Biden will try to give DC and PR electoral votes or get rid of electoral collage all together.
      Whos changing rules to suit a party??

    • ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  6. BIDEN/HARRIS 2020!

    • Bidens familt history has been exposed. Not only is slave ownership prevalent in Harris family history but Biden’s as well.
      The cancel culture will ignore i guarentee. They always do for Progressive leftist. But again it shows the hyprocrocy of the left.

  7. It’s all about the gop holding power they care about nothing else.

  8. It doesnโ€™t really matter though. Dems need to fight dirty, just like Republicans do, otherwise status quo.

    • @Anne Marie and the link i provided was newsworthy. You can dispute but do it with a link not gibberish.

    • You can’t claim Republicans are bad if your gonna do the same thing this as they are.

    • Are you trying to say that Democrats don’t fight dirty?? Are you 12 years old? The Democrats are the epitome of “dirty”.. trying to thwart the 2016 election, trying to destroy Kavanaugh, the unconstitutional impeachment, Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas ring any bells? You are an uneducated puke that watches too much propaganda spewed by the Democrat election committee ie; the MSM! Get an education!

    • K. McKee That is a valid point but you donโ€™t stand a chance to win when you bring a knife to a gunfight. The republicans all need to be voted out.

    • @J Els really? Give me a reason all Republicans need to be voted out? Here are some reasons to get rid of the Democrat party all together: the party of the Confederacy, slavery, the KKK, Jim Crowe, LBJ, Hugo Black, Woodrow Wilson, Robert Byrd (a KKK kleagle eulogized by all the Dems in 2014) Bull Conner George Wallace, and the segregationist ole Joe Biden! Today it’s the party of anti-American, anti-Semitic, marxists such as Ilan Omar, Rashida Talib, Alexandria Cortez, and Bernie Sanders. And the list goes on with all the full throated racists in the Democrat party! Should have been destroyed after the civil war. The same old party of hate and division is the same now as in the past, just different actors! The party has been a disgrace since it’s inception!!

    ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ BIDEN/HARRIS ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  10. True, let’s admit we Can’t control this but after Jan 2021 we can
    Add Judges to the Supreme court
    DC + Puerto Ricoย become states
    End of filibuster
    Universal healthcare

    Has the virus ever disappeared during its spread in America? Has the virus infection stumped or flattened ever since February/March? Has the death toll not risen ever? Is the virus still believed to be a hoax after 215,000 dead? We have a vaccine for the common flu, so is this virus just like the flu as Trump claimed in his televised speeches. When have we ever let the virus dominate our lives, it comes in (uninvited) & it takes over, we never let it relent or dominate our lives. We have to fear it because it kills, and shows us that it can. It is far more deadly than the flu. It is airborne and we can ingest it into our bodies just by breathing in a sneeze from someone nearby or someone spewing droplets as they talk.

  12. Don the Con wants Amy to help him steal the election! Don’t focus on Obamacare

    • You = Potato

    • I believe he wants her to represent his interests on both issues as well as his returning financial hearings. Heโ€™s shown us continuously heโ€™s transactional and throughout that heโ€™s always attempting to strategically subvert anything or anyone that exposes him.

      MSNBC are frauds! They are activists for the Democrat party. FRAUDS!

  13. Except for Trump’s* plan to have the Supreme Court make him president

    #TOOBIGTORIG. Biden/Harris 2020

    • Ah the Supreme Court does not elect our President.

    • Make that popping sound.

    • Correct. Except in the case of Al Gore when, for some reason I can’t remember anymore, who the winner was was under question. It was taken to the Supreme Court and they decided Bush won.

      So, if Trump* loses, and he can’t manipulate the Electoral College, then he might take the matter to the Supreme Court where, with this last judge they are pushing through, he along with Moscow Mitch have been packing the court. So, theoretically, with three Trump* appointed judges and a majority of conservatives, they should vote in favor of Donny Do Nothing all Day* no matter what the evidence shows

      Ain’t life grand?

    If they are going to ban a woman’s right to choose and birth control, Men especially old Dudes should be banned from using Viagra and getting a vasectomy.

    • Randall McCollum | October 12, 2020 at 6:40 PM | Reply

      @Alex Hamilton Ban it all. Sperm contains single cell organisms with chromosomes. Birth control has to go then Condoms and Vasectomy should go to. Viagra has nothing to do with health. Its for old guys who can’t get it up. Ban that too

    • @Randall McCollum with 6 Catholics on the Supreme Court it could happen. Which is why we need to open the court to people of more diverse backgrounds. Maybe more protestants and people that attend public universities.

    • Randall McCollum | October 12, 2020 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      @Alex Hamilton Let’s increase taxes so all those babies that are born can be taken care of

    • Randall McCollum | October 12, 2020 at 6:54 PM | Reply

      @Alex Hamilton In fact. All those babies will need a place to go so there should be mandated foster care. Sort of like the Draft

    • How about they are only allowed to have girls as children, how about that! Let them be ruled. No boys for you!!

  17. Why is it always the republicans who love talking about personal freedom and liberty, seem to also be the people trying to impose their own religious beliefs on the rest of us? ๐Ÿค”
    Seems a bit hypocritical, no? ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  18. GOP Senators: โ€˜โ€™Those mean democrats are attacking Barrett on her faith.โ€™โ€™

    GOP Democrats: โ€˜โ€™Letโ€™s talk about the ACAโ€™โ€™.

    • @Sun dial All of the judges picked by the Republicans belong to a club called the Federalist Society. That is bias. There are many brilliant judges who do not belong to that club. We shouldn’t have any more catholics on the Supreme Court.

    • @KataGan
      All the Judges picked by Democrats are activists and some are Socialists
      But i don’t have a problem as they can pick who they want..just as GOP can also pick who they want…Scotus should NEVER be subject to tokenism…….๐Ÿ˜Ž

    • @Sun dial Socialistsโ€ฆLOL.

    • miamirocks2010 | October 12, 2020 at 7:29 PM | Reply

      This media network (MSNBC) is a fraud! Bunch of corrupt activists for the Democrat party. They are frauds.

    • @miamirocks2010 You just dismiss the fact that so many on MSNBC have been Republicans and will probably return when the current regime implodes.

  19. Numbers do not lie!
    Trumpโ€™s โ€˜ Badge of Honor; (American Carnage):
    – Over 214,000 Americans killed, and going. ( Over 7.6 million infected)
    – 0ver 62 million claims for Unemployment benefits

    Trump’s Trade War Will Cost Average Family $1,277 This Year, Budget Office Reveals

  20. There is no reason for the Democrats too get upset in the hearings. They can’t stop it!
    But in November Trump and some of his Trumpsters are gone!! Vote them out! Also Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham!!!
