  1. When the total size and scope of Trump’s criminality is finally revealed, he will go down in history as the biggest fraud and con-man the world has ever known. Even Bernie Madoff will have to gasp in disgust.

  2. t’rump: “I, Donald J t’rump hereby announce I’m running for president in 2024!”
    Cell mate: “Cool story. Give me your lunch.”
    t’rump: “Yes sir.”

      @Diane Hooper I have a huge fallout with my brother because of Trump…..the guy is a category 5 moron….he is just man enough to say things many GOP politicians think but couldn’t say…thats all….I knew it from the beginning…..didn’t you hear what Lindsey Graham said yesterday? Jesus‼️ painful to listen to him talk, but wait for another month…and he will sing different tone😂…coming months will be really really great‼️….for America I mean

    • @ARLENE WUK Did you get a free tin of beans with that article

    • I sure hope he has a black cell mate!

    • @Biden Virus Stupid Jonestown, go take your meds. You’re delusional.


  3. Trumps tax returns were the longest audited ever,now he’s a citizen and can’t hide behind being ” president “

    • @Wonder Wonderful This is a point of view I’ve been adding to YT videos for a while with one difference – you put it more eloquently than I do.

    • I wonder if he regrets running and becoming president. His taxes were being quietly audited before, however afterwards, it became a big deal and everybody gets to see what he’s hiding.

      You all do realize that President Trump was a billionaire before he became President. He never took the pay for being the president. Yet all these life long politicians go from making a 175,000.00 to becoming millionaires??? Now that’s a little more suspicious to me

    • @Tabitha bishop He didn’t take the pay, but he cost the US taxpayers more in one year than any 2 term president cost us, while paying them their full salaries.

      @Shasha0709 really cause I believe Biden did his first day in office when he stopped American from being energy independent and wiping out 11,000 plus jobs. Then the borders who going to pay for them??? Taxes payers that’s who. President Trump had it so if they came to our country they had family support them not taxes payers!!! So 35 in office that just the start. Hmmmm you do the math

  4. A major clean up of the toxic and hazardous waste is needed in aisle 45! Someone get mango Mussolini a jumpsuit.

    • @Ken Howard 🤣🤣🤣

    • Simple, I bet Katie Porter can easily untangle the whole mess!

    • @Randy Couch Miss informed people voted for Trump and mostly narcissistic psychopaths also voted for Trump, it is well documented that he is a madman and he has a corrupt following with many corrupt politicians. So, I have to beg to differ with you. NO REAL NORMAL PEOPLE VOTED FOR TRUMP.

      @Randy Couch I’m real & southern and cancelled my voters registration when the corrupt RNC ran this conman grifter. CONald..ny calls him. Re registered as a Democrat just to vote him out! He’s a toxic waste dump and high satanic priest who’s fooled a lot of foolish ppl willing to Give up freedom of choice to a malevolent dictator. That’s why you were targeted. Dumb.

    • @Source Fractal OOTB Good on you for seeing the light!

    His next excuse will be”I’m still waiting for my w2 from the White House”

  7. The rich never go to jail, unless they steal from the wrong wealthy people.

    Use his story for “American Greed”

    Let’s see Dum Dum Donald squirm his way out of this one. Can’t wait.

  10. Like any mob boss, trump was cooking the books.
    Now, we get to see how much.

  11. Man, Trump in an orange jumpsuit. He’s going to literally look like a fat, walking Cheeto.

  12. Trump accountants and lawyers must go to prison

  13. what I do not understand is, that this fraud has never ever been discovered earlier. I guess the rich do have another justice system…..

  14. Mom With a plan | February 23, 2021 at 6:40 AM | Reply

    I wonder if NY, will be going after the Lawyers and accountants for the “Loopholes” that kept his FRAUD going all these years?!

  15. Little wonder Trump made $ 1.6 bn in four years. The reason why he has to fight teeth and nail to go back to white house.

      Jasper Etale: DID Trump make $1.6 billion in four years? My impression of Trump is that for a long time now he has consistently LOST money in his real-estate operations, and will soon start missing payments to DeutscheBank, who will foreclose on the fillings in his teeth. That’s why he is running for President and will run for President forever (and lose forever, because if he ever wins he can’t run for a third term, would have to stop campaigning immediately, and knows he doesn’t have the numbers across all of the States to get the Constitution changed to give him a 3rd term). Trump’s income for the rest of his life is raising campaign-contributions and stealing them from his campaign. That’s his only path to solvency. Book-sales and speaking-fees won’t be enough money to bail him out.

      The way to steal from your own campaign-fund is you pay a consultant $10 million and he gives you back $9 million in untraceable cash. And since Trump owns hotels, his campaign-workers, when they have to travel, will stay in Trump-owned hotels. The campaign will be charged $10,000 per night for those room-rentals when on any other night that room will go to any other person for $1,000. Trump perfected these methods with his “non-profit” foundation in New York State before he was President and his children learned the methods with the Inauguration-event charity.

      The grift that Trump could make from being President a 2nd time, from charging foreign governments the moon to put their people and galas in his D.C. hotel (which the foreign government would know full well is actually a bribe to the President) would only last four years, but, you never know. There’s other gains he could leverage from four more years. BUT, some of that stuff isn’t going to show up on a tax-return.

  16. Remember of all the crimes Al Capone committed it was the IRS that put him prison.

    • Yes … the irs is the most powerful institution this country has. 🙂 … but unfortunately it seems it didnt care so far about what king donald was doing… maybe NYS will get to him this time. He cannot be inciting an overturn of an election and not have committed all sorts of frauds

  17. Spoiler alert”individual one” may finally be revealed as Donald Trump and may be put in prison

  18. Those communications would be interesting and likely very damaging to the orange Florida guy who doesn’t know when or how to keep his gob shut.

  19. CONald will never see a minute jail because our justice system is based on “How much justice can you afford?”
