    Trump does NOT HAVE the support of the Military……how would you feel if you were ordered to shoot your brother for exercising his legal right to protest????? SINCE WHEN HAS PROTESTING BECOME ILLEGAL?

      @White Jesus

      Tear gas deployed after Protestors refused to evacuate the area, threw frozen water bottles at park rangers, and secret service, also threw bricks.

      Attempted to take a shield away from a LEO, and reached for another LEO’s side arm.

      At that point they were no longer Protestors but instead classified as Insurgents.

      You need to get an education, instead of always relying on that Indoctrination to get you through life. It’s failed you thus far to teach you the basics.

      @White Jesus

      Using CNN as your source for facts, is as comical as using Der Stürmer to inform America about the war efforts in Europe during WWII.

    • Jeff Gibson | June 9, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

      @White Jesus Oh dear. Aussie reporters got knocked down and innocent protesters got teargassed and 15 people were murdered by rioters in the same week? There ought to be a law against that.

    • I always wonder if Trump gave the order to shoot the protesters if they would.

    • Cowboy Shane | June 9, 2020 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      @Bernie Com

      By that time those throwing bottles, bricks, and trying to obtain LEO’s weapons were rioting, they’re no longer Protestors, and have become Terroristic Insurgents.

      America doesn’t negotiate with Insurgent Terrorist.

      Just like what the Fed’s are about to do in Seattle, with those Insurgents taking and securing that police department using semi automatic weapons.

      I guess the left just doesn’t want Independent minded people, and the Conservative Right to have weapons, but it’s ok for themselves to be armed to the teeth, and using those weapons to chase the police out of their own building. I guess that’s just right as rain to _#GLPs__._

      @john Barry John if we wanna talk about fake let’s start with the fake Russian collusion, the fake impeachment, the fake Ukraine story. And let’s not forget how trump is racist but when you ask someone to tell you how they have no answer

      @Tammy Elizabeth “you still running with that debunked Trump is a Russian agent bs”
      you know maybe people would stop thinking that if trump didnt trust putin over his own intelligence.

      Rory Cannon you must not be paying attention nobody can trust our intelligence services they’ve been illegally spying on Americans for years people trust herpes more then our intelligence industrial complex

      @Tammy Elizabeth “you must not be paying attention nobody can trust our intelligence services”
      Wow, You really are brainwashed.

      Of course the side living in an alternate reality wouldnt trust their own intelligence.

      “they’ve been illegally spying on Americans for years”
      they havent. you just cant accept that trump and his cronies are criminals.

      Every step with the flynn conviction was 100% legal and without political agenda. I know your media doesnt want you to think that, but those are the facts.

      Anyone who supports Trump even the trolls and bots are a disgrace and traitor to America.. You are a joke and the whole planet is watching and condemns what he’s doing…

    • Thugsy DaClown | June 8, 2020 at 3:59 PM | Reply

      @ Arrow FAUX NEWS is well known for years of misinformation. YEARS.
      Look the truth is hard sometimes. And here in 2020 Everyone has the ability to record with video.
      tRump constantly says things and then denies it.
      He has pandered to racist, tweets and talks s__t about people who dont say YES to whatever he wants.
      He is a horrible leader.
      If you are on CBS NBC etc. (Not FOX) Standing up for the LIAR N CHIEF then you are only here to argue.
      The TROLLS come in many forms. Some are BOTS some are from other country’s and there are folks that live here in the US that have “conservative” values. But many are not here spreading facts, they would rather “debate” (really argue) with people about the president…
      Not changing any minds.
      So How do we proceed?

    • Oh, no, they’ve been paying attention.

      This is just what they want.

    • arrow sarikoski | June 9, 2020 at 5:33 AM | Reply

      @Thugsy I don’t know about the others but I come here to challenge people’s beliefs if I notice they’re misinformed on something. People go to the comment section to see what others have to say, that’s what comments are meant for and they should be beneficial or funny.

      As for Fox News, I agree it has spread disinformation, not as much as CNN imo but I would put it roughly on the same level in Bias and accuracy as MSNBC. Obviously comparing the two is a bit silly in that Fox News SHOWS are more like opinion videos.

      Fox is definitely not my favorite right-wing channel.

    • Morris Tang | June 9, 2020 at 9:26 AM | Reply

      No, not possible. He’ll use his last Presidential Executive Pardon privilege to pardon himself in the last minute.

    • He’ll claim the election a fraud – millions of illegal immigrants, right?. Then he’ll declare it void, and further declare a State of Emergency and martial law. You know he’s thought about it.

  10. Sad for a soilder to have to hear that now. Vote blue America and stay safe.

      Megadog defunding the police would be idiotic… chaos. It would bring the very thing you guys say that we need to get rid of(chaos), not bring peace. We need to put laws in that will speed up the chargers for cops who do these things. Racial injustice won’t be stopped, no rules can change that, but defunding the police is just stupid.(especially taking police departments out for good, that’s a whole new level of something that will never happen)

    • SouthSide Chicago | June 8, 2020 at 5:47 PM | Reply

      @Joelthelion 100% accurate. Thank God we have a President that will NEVER allow ANY defunding from our police.

    • Newton Arock | June 8, 2020 at 6:10 PM | Reply

      @Megadog Just get rid of PDs. Make the Sheriff earn his keep. All PDs do is OCCUPY neighborhoods, they police nothing.

    • @Joelthelion Clever Defunding would actually be helpful. Police is not there for community service, mentally ill and so on. Shifting money from treating symptoms to prevention has proven to work in several cities.

      Lustrivek You werent there,You just taking msnbc’s word for it. You have to have control of streets if you want a country.

    • @Charles Lewis you’re right i wasn’t there. But there are multiple videos of police using teargas and flashbangs to control the streets and all that for a photo op which the press secretary fully denied about. There is a time and place for everything. Trump holding up a bible does no good to improve the situation but rather escalate it. If you want a country maybe actually start leading and implement some changes to improve the lives of ALL Americans and not the select few.

    • Nothing

    That hurt me a bit — I’ve never before seen Mr. Powell show such emotion. He’s really feeling what’s been happening to American values and, frankly, I’m feeling it too.

      @A-Raw electoral college is an antiquated system originally set up to value black Americans as less than. It is time to abolish it. It makes no sense. 2 people in North Dakota shouldn’t have more representation that 2000 in NYC. #justsayin

    • @Lesly Weiner That’s a fair argument. What else should we abolish? ICE? Police? 1st ammendent? 2nd amendment?

    Everything he has ever done or said so far has been to establish his own power and dominion, that’s it. Doesn’t matter if his actions or rhetoric makes sense or not, helps anyone or not. He will flip the script on anyone, anything. It’s only about his power over the people. He divides the people into those that bow in worship or the rebels he threatens with certain punishment. The worshipers are the good people that bad things aren’t going to happen to. Simple fear tactics. Dangerous territory.
