      I think you mean Harris Biden because Biden is not going to be president and no one really likes Kamala anywaybecause if you did you would have been endorsed her to be president a long time ago when she ran the first time! you people are something

      @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH
      I ❤️ the idea of Harris presidency.

    • @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH with that username and your comment history, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess you’re not even a citizen of this country. What’s the weather like in Moscow?

    • @Lewis Fraser You are right there is this disinformation war going on. Naive Americans will fall victims to the false narratives. Outcome of American elections will be decided by disinformation. Can you believe the times we are living. Disinformation has made Trump into a Savior Cult.

  2. Donald Trump is the most prolific liar in the history of mankind. I’ve never seen anything like it and I defy anyone to provide a single example that even comes close!

    • REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH lol. DT has had more free hand outs than any normal citizen will see in their lifetime! 143 million on golf trips, massive tax evasion!? Yet you see him as a Demi god for some reason.

    • @marilyn mills No, he actually doesn’t. Donald Trump is a textbook narcissist. That means he is profoundly insecure. His lies, his bluster, and his arrogance are all a facade to mask the frightened little boy hiding in the shadows. He must pathologically pretend to be what he desperately wants to be because he knows he isn’t and can’t be. He is, perhaps, one of the most miserable people on the planet. He is broken, shattered into a million pieces, like Humpty Dumpty. He hates himself – and, as a result, he hates everyone else, too. We can know this by his actions – constantly sabotaging himself in every conceivable way, while trying to damage and destroy everyone and everything around him.

    • @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH the only job you should worry about….on never mind….You BLOW!

      @Anthony Poe that’s your problem you’re so busy being politically correct you can’t even make a decent insult work on that ☝️🤓

    • I’ve met a couple of people that could compete with him but they’re not available for comment because they are serving life sentences. True statement. He is a classic criminal personality.

  3. Trump is one of the most uninteresting men you’ll ever come across –
    – there is no struggle of good and evil inside him.

  4. Trump doesn’t even understand the concept of “fair and honest.”
    In her new book, Trump’s niece Mary describes Donald as a “toxic” bully who practices “cheating as a way of life,” and someone who values money above anything.

    Trump’s sister also explained how she tried to help Trump academically, noting that “he was a brat,” and that, “I did his homework for him” and “drove him around NYC to try to get him into college.” She said she didn’t know of anything Donald had ever accomplished on his own, but noted that “he has five bankruptcies” which he achieved all by himself.”  “You CAN’T trust him,” she added.

    In the forward to his new book entitled “Disloyal, A Memoir,”  Michael Cohen writes: “Trump had cheated in the election, with Russian connivance, as you will discover in these pages, because doing anything — and I mean anything — to ‘win’ has always been his business model and way of life.”

    Trump will definitely try to cheat in order to win reelection. Trump is a natural born loser, therefore he has no other choice but to lie, cheat, and steal in order to achieve anything.

  5. It’s not Trump’s lying that’s undermining confidence in the system; it’s the Republican party going along with it.

    • Notorious Punk | November 3, 2020 at 2:10 AM | Reply

      @Dave Ah yes, freedom is gonna lead us out of this pandemic right? 🙄

    • Very good point! But can you call it a Republican Party if many of its former members have gone and are voting Democratic?

    • @Karin Schultz Well, of course the party names are just words, chosen to evoke some warm feeling in potential voters; nobody’s bound to exhibit some particular behavior because of them.

      For example, Thomas Jefferson, frequently regarded as the founding Democrat, called himself a “Republican.” For another, and as we know, Trump’s “Party of Lincoln” is nothing Lincoln would have recognized.

    • Colleen Reilly | November 3, 2020 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      George: Right on. But in reverse: Trump is a mere pawn, compared to the likes of master crafter/grafters Mitch McConnell. (Just compare how the two of speak to disguise deception. And not to be mean to my fellow Women, but compare the wives…Melania can be forgiven for her lack of a …while Elaine Chao who used her connection well, eh? cannot, for her willingness to swim in the swamp) Gosh I hope Kentuckians will finally send him packing.

    • Cynthia Placido | November 4, 2020 at 10:00 AM | Reply

      It’s actually both.

  6. Space Force Commander, General ‘Spanky Bonespurs' : | November 3, 2020 at 1:24 AM | Reply

    Don’t tip toe around it, call it for what it is. LYING is his legacy, but his biggest legacy is the Trump Pandemic (231,000 DEATHS so far, but it will keep rising as long as he’s the president).

  7. Trump has been a dark ominous cloud over this country for four straight years now. And the American people are ready to put the nonstop chaos and darkness of the last 4 years behind us, and in the rear view mirror where it belongs. But in order to do that, we have to leave the most toxic and corrupt president in American history behind. Trump, along with all of the chaos, corruption, lies, death, and malevolence that comes with him, cannot come with us in 2021.

    Biden/Harris!!!!💙

      That’s not good enough. We have to oust *all* the Republicans, since Trump has so ruined the Party.

      The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
      The “genius” who hides his college grades.
      The “self-made man” who tax dodged a $413M “gift” from daddy’s real estate empire.
      The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 yrs.
      The “playboy” who pays for $ех.
      The “Christian”, twice-divorced philanderer, who never asks God for forgiveness.
      The “man of the Bible” who declined to name even one of his favorite Bible verses.
      The “gentleman and champion for all women” who ordered his golf club managers to fire every woman who was not young enough and attractive enough.
      The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
      The “patriot” who dodged the draft; family tradition: grandfather was kicked out of Bavaria for draft-dodging, father bribed a doctor tenant to exempt Donald from military service.
      The “paragon of honesty” whose new immigration rules would have kept his and his senior anti-immigration adviser Stephen Miller’s grandparents out.
      The “steadfast defender of our nation’s borders” who married an alleged undocumented immigrant and illegal worker who sponsored her parents into the country by “chain migration”.
      The “staunch Republican” who donated to Democrats at all gov’t levels: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer.
      The “innocent man” who refuses to testify.
      The “President” who takes no responsibility.
      The “tough, strong man“ who wears makeup and hairspray but never a mask.
      The “deal maker” who has yet to close a deal.

      If America reelects this guy, it deserves the dystopian future that follows.

  8. Like virtually everything Trump has touched in his life, he’s broken America…

    • Yes, and as a Canadian with American relatives, I feel so sad at how low America has sunk in the eyes of the world.

    • @Ash Roskell I just wish, people argued Trump propaganda with logic and reasoning. You can break apart false narratives of these cult followers very easily.

      Just look at Trump’s past and present and you will know what his motives are. To be honest if Mitt Romney or John McCain were the president right now, we won’t have such deep rooted division in the USA. You may not like them but at least they weren’t a cult.

    • @Karin Schultz Our crack-smoking mayor of Toronto made it into the White House.

    • @Ash Roskell He will get over himself pretty quick in prison.

    • @Lez Charisma Doesn’t always work, they often just reappear when you refresh. When the trolls and trumpsters become blatantly offensive there should be some recourse that actually works!

  9. Trump wanted this chaos. And its treasonous to US democracy.

  10. President Death, wanton destruction, fear, lying and loathing what a legacy

  11. Trump is like a steaming 🇹🇺🇷🇩 in the middle of a room – you have to pay some attention, however uninterested – hopefully, not beyond 2020.

  12. Vote for Biden for the future of the United States. Don’t vote for Trump, who has driven our country towards the abyss and division. Only for the United States.

      “Q: What were your other impressions of the Soviet Union?
      A: I was very unimpressed. Their system is a disaster. What you will see there soon is a revolution; the signs are all there with the demonstrations and picketing. Russia is out of control and the leadership knows it. That’s my problem with Gorbachev. Not a firm enough hand.
      Q: You mean firm hand as in China?
      A: When the students poured into Tiananmen Square [in 1989], the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak… as being spit on by the rest of the world.”

      The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
      The “genius” who hides his college grades.
      The “self-made man” who tax dodged a $413M “gift” from daddy’s real estate empire.
      The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 yrs.
      The “playboy” who pays for $ех.
      The “Christian”, twice-divorced philanderer, who never asks God for forgiveness.
      The “man of the Bible” who declined to name even one of his favorite Bible verses.
      The “gentleman and champion for all women” who ordered his golf club managers to fire every woman who was not young enough and attractive enough.
      The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
      The “patriot” who dodged the draft; family tradition: grandfather was kicked out of Bavaria for draft-dodging, father bribed a doctor tenant to exempt Donald from military service.
      The “paragon of honesty” whose new immigration rules would have kept his and his senior anti-immigration adviser Stephen Miller’s grandparents out.
      The “steadfast defender of our nation’s borders” who married an alleged undocumented immigrant and illegal worker who sponsored her parents into the country by “chain migration”.
      The “staunch Republican” who donated to Democrats at all gov’t levels: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer.
      The “innocent man” who refuses to testify.
      The “President” who takes no responsibility.
      The “tough, strong man“ who wears makeup and hairspray but never a mask.
      The “deal maker” who has yet to close a deal.

      If America reelects this guy, it deserves the dystopian future that follows.

    I just can’t get over his lack of paying taxes as a woman who is single and only makes $20,000 a year I paid more taxes than him FM

    • This is a man who has repeatedly defrauded workers and subcontractors of wages every time he declared bankruptcy, driving some family owned businesses out of business forever. People were defrauded of their savings, including elderly people, through “Trump University.” The Trump Foundation was shut down by the courts as a charitable organization due to his appropriation of these funds for his personal use. The IRS has gone after him repeatedly over the years. Notice that as of Election Day, he still hasn’t released his taxes; what we do know had to be dug out. He has been a ruthless white collar criminal his entire life.

  20. Trump is bad in so many ways….but his lying is the core of his dark soul.
