    Trumps words from his 2016 acceptance speech… “there is American carnage coming from this White House and spreading across America” Just goes to show he hated our country in his first day in office. Hypocrite….. send him back to Florida

      You think is all you need to say, this country has to change fundamentally because it’s not perfect and that’s called progress.

    45* has said that: the US is a “hellhole”, WH is a “dump”, “The American dream is dead”, “We’re dying. We’re dying. … We’ve got nothing”…but apparently it’s only patriotic when he criticizes the US.

    • So trump is betting that you, and the majority of voters, are racists too. Hope you are not because as a democratic republic country we are over.

    *This is not a new strategy for Republicans.* Under Clinton to criticizes/question/speak out against the administration meant you loved America and wanted to insure it stayed on the right path to succeed. Then W. Bush was elected and to criticizes/question/speak out against the administration meant you hated America and wanted it to fail. Then Obama was elected and to push back made you a patriot. Then Donald was elected and to push back made you a traitor. Rinse and repeat.

      They never came to the conclusion that half the country hates the other half. It’s a wash…. welcome to the Divided State of America

      The irony is, nobody has bashed America more than Trump. In fact, his very slogan “Make America Great Again” implies he doesn’t think the country is great.

  6. The more the rich and powerful are not held accountable for their misdeeds; the more THE PEOPLE thirst for their blood: it is history’s simple mathematical equation. Do not underestimate mob psychology: throughout history at threshold levels of social tension [i.e., cognitive dissonance] people have snapped enmasse. The lone wolf mass shootings and ambushes and rising incivility in social media, etc., indicate society approaches potentially explosive levels of tension requiring expression. The more intense the underlying tension; the greater will be the explosion. Often this results in widespread war in which we exhaust ourselves physically and psychologically; after which exhaustion we start the cycle all over again: but often too we turn on ourselves. Be very afraid. Trump is a clear and present danger to the world in its entirety. Trump is a cancer that needs to be excised, my friends. Which begs the question: Who… who will rid us of this menace?

    The irony and tragedy is that we are the universe, conscious of itself, many of us seeing the patterns of historical behavior repeated over and over again — and almost always unable to do anything about it. We are subject to rules of behavior over which we have little or no control. Our DNA is a product of survival in the context of group behavior. We are not just individuals; we are a group entity: with a group identity that exerts itself over the individuals of the group. No doubt you have heard how individuals in a group — or in a mob — will participate in behavior that by themselves as individuals never would they behave that way. There are patterns to our behavior governed by forces beyond our conscious control that drive us toward certain ends. Only very few of us can be masters of our nature. More often our nature is master of us; and we do what our nature wills, regardless we see of that which we do, ill consequences resulting. In other words, humankind still remains subject to the human condition for which we have yet to find a solution.

    This channel has so few comments. Perhaps because they lie?

  8. Can’t imagine Trump’s life will be nice after his presidency is over.

    Don’t say we have freedom of speech in USA when social media continuously suspends our accounts, when the user doesn’t harass or bully other users, doesn’t communicate threats or bodily harm to anyone.
    The user is suspended every 2 months for NOTHING !

  10. Why don’t you ask Johnson about his support for the way trump is handling the crisis at the border? BTW.
    Reported today border deaths in trumps 2 yrs in office are way below ovomits and bushes.
    MSDNC 💩 PROPOGANDA.

    The Democrats can’t fall for this distraction tactic. Trump doesn’t want them talking about the fact there is no wall, no healthcare plan, no infrastructure plan, no lower prescription drugs and no return of coal jobs. He loses if the Dems keep the focus on issues and Trump’s lack of tangible accomplishments for the American people.

    After we kick dRUMP out of office, we need to paint the “White House” purple!

    Maybe they’ll leave after all the republicans do, him first.

  14. He’s the self admitted leader of the Republican party

      It has been Trump’s GOP since November 2016. The new GOP where there is no decent whatsoever. The new GOP where Trump’s word is axiomatic. The new GOP where Whiteness is celebrated.

    Listening to Jeh Johnson is such a relief after so many months of Trump’s “best people” who he never bothers to get beyond an “acting” certification. Trump and his whole administration have been obscene and will ultimately spend time in prison. It seems that the most dangerous men in America are not currently in our prisons, but are attacking our families either for sexual favors or because they disagree with the professional conclusions of our government employees. Americans really need a rational leader again.
