  1. We need vote him out

    As,”Individual One,” Trump has already been found guilty of a crime. The same crime that put his lawyer in jail. Calling himself a law and order president, is a joke.

    • Three weeks ago the Senate Intel Committee, led by Republicans, released a 1000+ page report which documented and confirmed every allegation and fact as presented in the Mueller Report. It is in the public domain and you can read it.

    • @Rob E Guilty… and should have been brought to court.

    • Not to mention being found guilty of fraud with his charity. Steve Bannon is facing possible jail time for the same thing.

    • Unindicted co conspirator in the cohen,illegal hush money campaign felony,currently under investigation by the nysd for bank n tax fraud,money laundering. Dumps the leader of the American taliban,nazi party,manson family

  3. The only thing left for trump to run on is hate.

      @AfroSamurai215 : Thank you. I am going to do that anyway. Please don’t stop reminding us.

      MeMaSan martin, I’m voting as soon as my ballot arrives, Trump just told his followers to vote twice. There is no depth to which he won’t sink. I’m already looking at houses in Italy because this country is too much. I’d rather start over in a new country with a New language at 68, that deal with the insanity and hate that exists here. Once Trump is gone, his followers will still exist, with their racism and bigotry and hate. Italy is welcoming New people, even retirees, to revitalize their country. Like America once did.

    • @Goolag Tube The only violence is being committed by QAnon MORONS like you.

    • @Michael Parrott-MacLeod Schitz never had any neurons, he’s a MORON putin puppet.

  5. And in other breaking news: water is wet. Afraid of Anti-facists… 🤣🤣🤣🤣 17 year olds with assault rifles are the problem… and their parents.

  6. If you’re not anti-fascist you’re a fascist end of story

  7. Did we not learn the lesson after Oklahoma City? It seems not!

  8. Biden and Harris 2020❤️❤️❤️

      Nah woman

    • More like Harris/Biden. She’s the only one doing any talking this election season while Dementia Joe hides in his basment.

      Trump call him Sleepy Joe Hiden and that’s what he is. Face it, your candidate is the biggest joke in history and Kamala is so bad she dropped out of the race after Tusli embarrassed her.

  9. I’m glad she’s come around, but remember she voted for, and worked for Trump.

    • For real…if we are ever going to get past this…we have to be willing and happy to accept those that have defected.

    • Stacy Usher I’m truly glad she realized something was wrong, but there are not 2 realities and facts are real.

    • @bladerunner27x Reality isn’t static, it evolves and changes.

    • Just another rat abandoning the sinking ship.

      Someone protecting the nation from threats should have been able to since long identify that Trump is a threat and a danger. A narcissist who works just likes hitler, who makes up his own reality and will attempt to bring the nation down with him. Obvious fascist behavior and severe acts that screams “racist” all about him. That she wasn’t able to identify Trump as such a dangerous individual long before 2016—and even voted for him—just makes her a joke as someone having such a responsible position. Incompetent at understanding quite basic things about the psychology behind tyrants.
      Sure… good she has “turned”, but a national security expert who voted for Trump is not an “expert”, but an embarrassment. She should have known what Trump was all about. It was obvious. She shouldn’t have had to “learn”.

      @Lamont Cranston INC. dummy again, read Mary trumps book… fact don and his dad were found guilty of racist in their housing!

      Her book is not evidence its a book. People like you call it being racist to hold persons of color to the same standard as us.. If not true why did libs attack ICE centers.. solely based on race of those in custody.. Had they been white you would not have attacked it or called enforcement racist.. The Klan was infiltrated in the 70s by the feds and swayed into a separatists movement.. To keep the white boogie man alive but keep him in control….I knew somebody in the CIA He said Duke worked for the government as a double agent.. You are the first person in 45 years I told this to..
      Again her book is not evidence.. Its a series of allegations.. Innocent till proven guilty… I think I also said There are pictures of Biden Hillary with Klan people.. Klan is not what it was.. You are more likely to be killed by a leftist rioter or a foreign terrorists than the aloof white supremacist.. Pretty sure the last 3 months of violence has not been by the klan lol

    So why did she ever vote for him? He’s absolutely the same person he was in the beginning. For those that voted for Trump and willingly worked for Trump, your hands are forever stained.

    • I am sorry she made a choice everyone does it. Agree to disagree that is a choice. Look at what he put in to replace her LOL. She step away now you have who LOL.

    • They made a mistake. They were fooled. They admitted it and thank goodness. But I’m sure you’ve never make a mistake or been taken in by a charismatic person. I am grateful when people take the blinders off and see him for what he is.

      @redponii That is the lamest excuse, Trump has been Race Baiting from the start. I wouldn’t of voted for Jesus with that garbage coming out of his mouth.

    • @redponii Do you know what LOL I always make mistakes part of life, can I ask you are you able to admit when you make a mistake can you say in a group of people at a party, are you as a person able to say, I am sorry and I was wrong and you were right. Just asking I would do it would you. See you were wrong. Can I ask have you ever heard the master say it either one, Sorry, I was wrong, I made a mistake LOL. good luck in life when you can’t use those words.

      Great question. I saw this interview and hoped this segment showed the whole interview. The PBS journalist asked her this question. Her answer was sincere and illuminating relating to her christian background. She was fooled yes, but apparently realized this eventually. Hope i can find a link that shows the whole interview. I’m utterly low tech so maybe someone else can find it and help us out rather than make up reasons.
      Great show though, fantastic host, and knowledgeable guests with broad experiences with different backgrounds.

    *I don’t remember any widespread rioting during the Obama years. Gee, I wonder why. This is all on Trump.*

    • @P rotoin For the country I think Biden will be better. Personally I think Chump will ultimately chip away at the system as we know it and it will be brutal. For Africans and people of color neither will do anything but it will be worse under Chump.

      I think America has reached its tipping point and it is failing. Too many rich people and those that are comfortable don’t care about others. I am good, well I was good lol I work in the aerospace industry and my job will be closing soon so I am looking but nevertheless I happen to care about others whether I am or was good.

      Greed will be our downfall. As a black man or rather African yeah don’t want to be here as it falls. The non racist Trump supporters I actually get it now, this system is horrible. Talked to a few them about it and they think more like me than dems which is crazy.

      Wish the Trump and Bernie people teamed up instead of fighting over crumbs but I can’t see that happening. They control us especially those of us that are older. Reagan was the beginning of the end for this country and whether Dem or Rep they both followed Reganomics to Americas peril. Tik Tok, all you can do is sit back and watch it implode.

    • @P rotoin Do remember. President Obama sent out National Guard troops to the states who requested them. Those who are trained in crowd control with protesters. This year president and attorney general called on Homeland Security. The man Wolf, who trump appointed with no qualifications for the job. Didn’t even hold a security officer job in his life. He sent out Boarder Patrol Agents, and Prison Security Officers that had NO training in crowd control. Yes, I do remember.

      @P rotoin Nope, there were no WIDESPREAD riots during the Obama years. You’re citing a few specific, localized examples. That’s not WIDESPREAD. You people seem to have a serious problem with reading comprehension.

      @Sandra Wade by good, do you mean racial discrimination and medical malfeasance as a result of affirmation action and other “diversity” agendas? getting rid of SAT and ACT can only make it better, right?

    • @Sandra Wade LOL tell that to all the blacks who died in Chicago during the Obama years. Democrats have done nothing for Blacks except exploit them

  14. Why did you vote for trump in the first place?

  15. It’s interesting to finally hear someone admit the US is an exporter of this ideology and that their domestic problems have a habit of leaking out and helping to radicalise young, mostly men, in other countries.

  16. You are a little late coming to the truth. People like you who have given cover to Trump make me sick.

      @Nicholas Strong When lower-class whites are matched with lower-class blacks and other non-whites the degree of the non-white advantage becomes astronomical: lower-class Asian applicants are seven times as likely to be accepted to the competitive private institutions as similarly qualified whites, lower-class Hispanic applicants eight times as likely, and lower-class blacks ten times as likely. These are enormous differences and reflect the fact that lower-class whites were rarely accepted to the private institutions Espenshade and Radford surveyed. Their diversity-enhancement value was obviously rated very low.

      obviously banning ACT and SAT scores for use in admissions is not a deal breaker for you. what is? boiling children alive in bath tubs? or nothing..hmmmm

    • BidenHarris2020

    • M Reuter facts

    • @Eric Douglas How do you figure Biden is rich? I thought tRump was super rich? Biden has made a bunch of money on book deals and speaking engagements but is nowhere near as rich as your idol. tRump made his money from inheriting it and cheating the government from taxes he should have paid. What do you think with happen to him when he defaults on his loans from Xi and Vlad. tRump owes the COMMUNIST CHINESE BANK 211 million plus and untold amount to Vlad his maker. Putin is the real god of the GOP.

    Neumann is 100% correct. Truth is, aside from a few cases of opportunistic looting during a civil unrest, the majority of the violence and destruction happening is being instigated by right-wing extremest groups infiltrating peaceful protests and purposely sowing chaos in order to pin the blame on the left/liberals/Democrats/Antifa/whatever. These groups include:
    . fringe militia groups such as the Boogaloo, Patriot Prayer, OA9, etc
    . white supremacists/nationalists and neo-nazi groups like Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oathkeepers, etc
    . outside agitators and out-of-state alt-right anarchists and right-wing radicals

    Multiple FBI arrests have confirmed this to be true. Many of these people have been caught even before they were able to inflict damage. Some of these group members were intercepted driving in from out of state with carloads of Molotov cocktails, guns, ammo, and heavy grade fireworks to co-opt and wreak havoc within the peaceful protests. In at least one incident, an off-duty cop was going around and smashing business windows with a hammer, presumably so police could declare that protest to be a “riot”.

    There are literally hundreds of videos and deep journalistic articles supporting this. These are just a few references:

      MySecretMessages, Thank you, I have been saying this for weeks so people would wake up! However, I didn’t have these sources to show them. Again, thanks.
