  1. Where’s Trump?..Hiding in his Bunker 🤔

    • @John Lightfoot so lightfoot is here too. Lightfoot is in the audience criticizing. We can give 0 facks of what a foreigner thinks. All they do is sneak there way in America for a better life. Lmao

    • your approval of terrorists makes u way worse than trump or the cop who killed Floyd ever could be.

    • @Eagle Eyes yea, its easy to sit down on the couch and criticize. The crooked politicians are trying to hang trump with the rope they created. F your politicians

    • @Maria Vasquez 22 Vasquez he’d never fit..
      Hey, maybe he’s stuck!

    • He must be peeing in his pants right now. I hope Ivanka is there to change his diaper.

  2. Makes one wonder if a civil war is part of trump’s “death star” re-election strategy..

      Who are they protesting. I dont think its about Republicans. Since when did this become about Republicans? I dont see any Red hats.

      @Billy Anderson Antifa hides behind masks and all black, not the proud boys you troll.

    • @Bovine One get real. MAGA ARE IN ALL TOWNS. The last time there was an investigation it turned out WHITE Supremists turned Peaceful demonstrations violent. It’s a verified tactic of Right Wing Hired Chaos Thugs. Do some homework.

      @John Lightfoot TRUMP is a CURSE on us.
      We MUST do an ATONEMENT to get things right with OUR GODS again.
      The only way to appease the GODS is to send TRUMP away.

    Trump said he was going to make America great again. Are we there yet?

    • Tessmage Tessera | May 31, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      Yup, this is Trump’s America. Isn’t it great..? The burning police cars look so pretty at night.

    • Robert The Bruce | May 31, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera I hope Beto O’Rourke didn’t come confiscate your gun yet. If you get in a bind the police can’t help. You’ll have to defend yourself

    • @Mike Boate
      I am tired of his whining.

    • If you think things are bad now. When Trump is out of office and the communists are in complete control you’ll wish you only had Trumps tweets to complain about instead of bread lines and having your money taken and having limited freedoms.

  5. please take your young folks home….Its just 2 dangerous 4 kids at a certain point.

    • Jeffrey Haines | May 31, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      Shush. There’s little danger. Don’t believe this sensational negative narration by media. Push for change and justice!

    • @Jeffrey Haines Don’t be dishonest. The threat and danger is certainly real. Many may and will consider it risks worth taking, but no one should be ignorant or naive here. Make educated choices.

  6. Gary Witherspoon | May 31, 2020 at 8:38 PM | Reply

    Police in America beware your allegiance to a right wing authoritarian fascist regime of the Trump Administration.

    • Gary Witherspoon – Says the rioting, looting, violent left. LOL! You guys are becoming the very thing you warned us about.

    • Nadia Silvershine | May 31, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      @Mike Dunigan Not Trump’s fault, but Trump ALWAYS is guaranteed to make things worse.

    • Nater's Taters | May 31, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

      Yeah because there are absolutely no liberal cops, right? 🙄🤦‍♂️

    • Mike Dunigan | May 31, 2020 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      @Bovine One Your inability to understand complex problems means you should stop talking about them.

    • Mike Dunigan – That’s hilarious. You idiots think it’s okay to target innocent people and burn down cities. I hate to break it to you but NO problem is too complex to understand that that’s WRONG! That cop deserves prison for life. Innocent people don’t deserve to be hurt and have their property destroyed.

    I don’t understand why people like to live in cities. This **** is crazy.

      @Margaret Nicol that’s the way life goes get with the program they’re f****** needy one

    • NYC125street | May 31, 2020 at 10:54 PM | Reply

      @81FireFlights I think it’s pretty smart if you look at the long term picture. These people destroy and burn down the businesses. The businesses get their insurance to rebuild. Then the construction companies hire the guys who looted and burned the businesses down in the first place.
      Welcome to AMERICA!! 😛😏

      @Margaret Nicol no it’s not there protesting because they can’t even pay their rent because their gas is so big dummy

      Australia is fine, we have one like trump personality here ‘pauline hanson’ but we ignore her cos she is just a bigot. If you pay attention to them they will deliver more stupidity that might confuse you.

    • Grandma 3pets | May 31, 2020 at 10:05 PM | Reply

      Canada here…we’re comfortable and fairly safe. We have health care for all, and our government treated the pandemic as a human problem and all parties got together to help us out with $2K per month, plus another $500 for each child, so we can eat while we stay home. They agreed to pay everyone who applied, on the understanding that they would repay it when they file this year’s income tax, if they aren’t entitled. Government is paying danger pay to top up salaries for essential workers and providing free emergency day care centres for their children. We already felt sorry for you people during this trouble, and now that your cities are in flames, we are literally weeping for you. Stay home. Stay safe. Remember, this, too, shall pass.

    Trump is the most deplorable excuse for a human being. He’s no leader. He’s not even a president!

    • @Jennifer Jones Jenn, I want you to think hard for a minute. Where do you come off saying Trump is a white supremacist supporter? As in a “supporter”? That is so far from reality. May be a CNN spin you watched that stuck or something, but nevertheless honey – very odd & false. And I don’t see him caring only about himself if he gave up $7.3M of his yearly money to do this job. An ego? Yes – we know that. Forget your feelings – the guy is the only thing saving us from crooked backroom politicians trading favors without care to what happens out here.

      Why does joe McFish fingers Biden cry after intercourse? The mace

    • Jennifer Jones | May 31, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      @Mueller Time you’re kidding me, right? The first thing he did when the news broke was point his finger at another mayor in his own country who was dealing with a crisis. Instead of being a leader he chose to be a bully..calling him a leftist etc. Give me a break. Do you not see how divisive and destructive his behavior and comments are. This isn’t what we used to do before Trump in this country. We used to have compassion for one another. Trump doesn’t, that’s not what Americans are about.

      @Jennifer Jones standing down and letting violent liberal inbreeding cultist mayonnaise gargling socialists burn down cities while holding back the police, isn’t”handling” the crisis. Lol. You morons sure are liberal

    lol those are flashbangs. The sound is pretty distinct.

  13. ty mr melvin, stay safe everyone, and btw, that didn’t sound like fireworks.

    • Mike Dunigan | May 31, 2020 at 9:15 PM | Reply

      Fireworks and flash bangs. Fireworks have a sharp crack, flash bangs have a impact full bang. Gunshots are rapid pops.

  14. Some US politician said “Hong Kong is a beautiful sight to behold”…

    • At the beginning of the pandemic Trump’s government, was also very keen on exploiting China’s problems but Europe said no.

    • Steven Lopez Rios | May 31, 2020 at 9:18 PM | Reply

      Hello Chinese shill. 25 cent army are ya?

    • It is. People protesting is their right, even if it gets violent. Governments don’t act unless people make it an issue.

    • Mueller Time | May 31, 2020 at 10:10 PM | Reply

      Remember when CNN headquarters was almost burned to the ground? That would have been sweet to see the employee jumping out of the upper floors on fire

    • Δεν έχω γνώση των τατουάζ, είμαι εκατομμυριούχος.

  15. Actually, it’s best that he stays away! He just makes the situation worse! I agree with the mayor of Minneapolis. When the media asked for her opinion regarding Ftrump tweets she said, “ He needs to stop, he just needs to stop!” One can only hope!! Telling a bigoted racist narcissist to stop!! 🤬

  19. I just read on CNN covering the protest in Washington. His security has him in the White House bunker! But who knows if that is true! Maybe they can keep him there forever!! 😂

      Ask the AON chick standing in the back of the press room. U know the one who dsnt have a seat cause they have absolutly no credibility. Same one Trump wants there cause if Fox argument one of his 18 000 missleading comment he will tell you to watch AON.
