      @The Micky … so you’re willing to use PROJECT VERITAS as your source? Pffft…that CORRUPT, previously DEBUNKED pro-Republican partisan garbage group? Nice try, LOSER…
      you really should do some due diligence on that hack, James O’Keefe. He’s truly lucky he’s not behind bars for perpetrating blatantly criminal FRAUD against Planned Parenthood.

    • “BIDEN ADMITS TO VOTER FRAUD! Joe Biden brags about having the ‘most extensive VOTER FRAUD organization’ in history!!”

    • SHE IS FASCIST who seeks to destroy the greatest country in the world. The same goes for anybody else who votes democrat.

      @C•0•2 Designs are you allowed phones in the Asylum?

      @Rachel Miller I believe she’s a Democrat but that’s not the issue. She’s highly qualified. 🇪🇺🇮🇪

  2. I give this woman a 10+ Straight to the point No sugar cones no BS.

  3. Trumps paranoia, “OMG, another Woman wearing Leather”! Jarad, help me to the Bunker! Hurry!

    • Eva Braun (Ivanka Trump) will be the one helping him to the bunker and holding his tiny hands while he sip from the poisoned chalice.

  4. Now that’s a women of steel! she doesn’t seem bullied a bit by Mr Mac and cheese! she has more balls than Lindsay Graham!

    • she knows she has the support of wisconsin nevada pennsylvania and possibly arizona too maybe even georgia and n. carolina…why should she fear trump?…who may have been destroyed in this election

    • She doesn’t have balls.. She’s a brave and strong woman who doesn’t need balls to prove it.. Because balls have never been a source of bravery..

    • ” she has more balls than Lindsay Graham!”

      All it takes is one.

    • @Asmosis Jones so you’re saying that this is a group effort…. all the Democrats were doing this in the major cities?

    • Women never are bullied that’s men under TRUMP

    It’s embarrassing…to lose gracefully is the sign of a real man’s character.

  6. She seems very eloquent and professional, unlike another man….

  7. Trump: “COVID cases are up because we test.”

    Also Trump: “Biden votes are up because they keep counting ballots.”

  8. Her confidence communicates, “I know my work, and it’s excellent.”

    Trump’s authoritarianism and bluster communicates, “My work is unethical slop, so I hide it with bravado and bullying.”

    Trump only path to victory is through a Sharpie.

  10. This man said he Claims Michigan lmao. You cannot make this stuff up.

    The term ‘sore loser’ just came to mind. I can’t imagine why.

  12. Isn’t Iran still looking for Trump? If so, he’s available now! ;0)

    • b.boi has a bounty and we shall look other way. snickering in the background

    • RFLMAO!!! While they’re at it, they can have his family and friends and supporters, too!

    • @Gerhard Leykauf Iran put a bounty on him so no way he’s going their them that bank he owes over 400 million dollars to gonna take all his property if he don’t pay up soon…..so right now the only home safe home for trump is the coronavirus white house

    Stop calling them claims. Start calling them lies.

  14. I understand now. Reality TV President Donald Trump is trying to ‘edit’ the vote count…

  15. Wow she is strong straight talker not influenced by Donnie’s bullying tactics.

    • TexanforTruth TossTrump | November 5, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      Yep just like Gretchen Witmer.
      Trump hates women that stand up to him. Hope she has some security as she could become the next target unfortunately.

  16. Is this Trumps “optimism” Kayleigh and Tomi claimed Trump has regarding his actions around Covid

  17. Watch what happens when an educated, competent, powerful woman like Jocelyn Benson tells Trump, “nope” !

    • Jeremie Jackson | November 5, 2020 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      @Gina so there saying that the virus isn’t real. And the whole world with Biden or against trump and his trumpets? Haha

    • Prepare for “nasty”. It’s the go-to when women, whatever their qualifications, say “no” to Trump and he can’t get them alone in a dressing room.

    • @J P Paranoia can be treated , seek therapy .

    • @J P Ah! So that’s it. You’re a QAnon cultist. Sorry for you. Everything you have said is nonsense. Interesting you used the word ‘brainwashed’ against others. Projecting much?

    • TexanforTruth TossTrump | November 5, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @Gabo0n VIP3R she’s white so she gets “nasty or that woman” were she black I suspect it would be “monster” that he called Kamala. Such a vile individual with his petty name calling.

  18. Trump thinks everytime he uses”Hereby”, he gets an extra vote for using a fancy schmancy word.

  19. The world is laughing at us. The man child wants his way and he is not going to get it.

    • jana videmannova | November 5, 2020 at 10:03 PM | Reply

      The world is laughing at you. You are right. Democrats more dangerous than communist! Nobody believes you!!!!!!!

    • The world is not laughing, we are horrified that the Dems have the bare faced effrontery to pull this stunt. We are also dismayed that so many people are going along with it even though they will share the pain, along with the republicans, when the rights of the people are removed.

  20. Always good times when a president Sues one of his states.
