  1. I love how he denies a systemic problem, but then asks why these bad apples are still on the force. Its almost as if the system is rigged in favor of police.

    • You’re the same person who bitches and moans that the police didn’t respond fast enough in Vegas.

  2. “we’ve got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard”. Martin Luther King.

      He may have said that but that doesn’t mean that he was for rioting. Stop repeating the same phrase like everyone else without context.

    • @Steven Lopez Rios it’s irrelevant if he was for it or not, if someone who was against rioting acknowledges that riots are the only thing that “leaders” and politicians can understand then it’s important to continue them now more than ever. Peaceful protests are overlooked, Stonewall, the suffragettes both brought about tremendous change through riots! Why are they celebrated but rioting for black people’s rights is looked down on?!

    O’Brien is a perfect example of why we are where we are at this present moment.

    • If I know I’m gonna get pardoned by Trump beyond 2020, whats there to be afraid of?

    • @Richard Danache So what if he’s white? We can stand for our black brothers and sisters if we want to.

      @Richard Danache calm down,we need more than us to speak out,we need our fellow humans to speak on our behalf as well,why are you against that? Or are you ashamed of the “white” people being willing to see us as humans? Because they’re my brothers and sisters regardless if they are full of hatred or love for me.

    I’ve never heard the phrase “bad apples” so often in such a short time. By saying it’s “bad apples”, they don’t have to admit there’s a real problem and have to do something about it.

  10. O’Brien lost me when he called Trump “eloquent.”

  11. How exactly can you do your job as the national security advisor when you’re denying a major source of weakness in the country?

    Stop giving voice to the criminals in this government.

    No it’s just antifa. “So what about the far right groups” oh no not them

      Every one of these riots are sanctioned by democrats. All these looters and vandals are antifa and democrats. That’s a fact. No right wing anything is involved in this.

      Danny Watson  Good luck with that, lol.

    • the EXTREMISTS on BOTH sides need to be rejected…right now it is antifa who are using this one bad incident in Minnesota to fuel their anger and destroy America….it is NOT “far right groups” who are currently destroying and looting our cities!!!

    • @Danny Watson How about the racist cops who continue to murder unarmed black men? These riots are disgusting but wouldn’t be occurring if those cops weren’t committing murder.

    “We want peaceful protesters” Taking a knee during a football game though is unpatriotic and deserves treason punishment according to toddler in chief.

  17. Way to side step the “loot and shoot” comment. Shame on Jake for letting him.

  18. He said “What we don’t want to see is armed protesters …”. Hmmm, … they didn’t seem to have a problem with the lethally-armed protesters in the Michigan State House.

    Robert O’Brian pushed AG Barr’s trope “Antifa-like tactics.” Misinfo/paranoia/ops is a CIA tactic.

    He just admitted systemic racism when he inquired as to why the officer was still employed 🙄

      His white privilege makes him blind

      It’s the Democrats that protect the racist, that’s why the cop was still on the job. Follow the evidence.

      I don’t think he admitted systemic racism when he asked why this officer still had a job with a record of this behavior, he admitted that there are a lot more bad apples than good. Cops have always put themselves and other cops above others, even though they are suppose to be Civil servants.
