  1. Trump is making America bankrupt.

    • Yup. He’s had plenty of experience with making businesses bankrupt. So no surprises there.

    • Macdonald Maurice | August 5, 2020 at 4:10 AM | Reply

      That’s the one thing he’s really good at!

    • Yes, and it’s odd that his rich cronies don’t worry about this. The deficit is through the roof and is probably the most pressing economic issue that Trump doesn’t address as he goes on and on about how great he is for the economy. Really?!!

    As a matter of fact, he’s messed up America ever since he took office in WH, we believe it will get worse in the months to come. SHAME

    • @Bryan Mayer It was never the best economy ever.Thats just a false statement.Why are trump supporters so ignorant and gullible? Stop believing trumps lies!

    • james mack I would love to hear your stats on that. And for the record, this is not from Trump. It is from economists and job reports. By far the best economy in the past 50 years. Do you believe reality correlates to your feelings?? Is that why you do not think the economy was so great??

    • @Bryan Mayer OH now its in the last 50 yrs? Because you said best ever before.

    • james mack Its both moron. The metrics to compare only exist in the past 50 years or so. You cannot compare 1800’s statistics like unemployment because those statistics didn’t exist.

      vicuong dangdingdong – The American left has traditionally prided itself on being on the right side of history, but today their efforts 🐽 to make sure that everyone stays in one racial or cultural lane puts them in the position of standing athwart history shouting “Stop!” ‼️ Their opposition to an America in which cultures blend ❤️ to create a national identity runs counter not only to our nation’s traditions but also to the cold reality of cultural and racial mixing. In the long run, this is a fight they can’t win, but that doesn’t mean they can’t cause a good deal of 👹 harm and discord in the short term. The sooner they desist with these futile efforts, the healthier and more equal our society will be.

  3. Where Trump is concerned; countries, people, and life only exist to be exploited in order to benefit Trump.

    • Wdym, Trump refused to receive his paycheck and instead, loosing more money when he became president since no one wants to visit the trump tower to avoid the left media label them as racist, bigot, xenophobic and much more. Stop believing anything they said 100%. Maybe you should watch Fox news for a few times so you can know what’s really going on. I suggest that you watch both CNN and Fox news at the same time since both media are biased. Or watch foreign media like WION or Sky Australia news since they bash both Trump and Biden.

      @Rudolph Simmonds …. You haven’t bothered to address NYC health commissioner encouraging people to party. Not only her. Bill DeBlasio in February told people to go attend Broadway plays. Not only those two. Nancy Pelosi told San Francisans to party in China Town. Trump never asked anyone ever to party or go to plays or do any group activity. Instead he literally shut down the country for 45 days. Now I will let you express your anger on those three government officials who told Americans to party on in February. I know you won’t. Because you are a weasel.

      @Rudolph Simmonds ….. Look who is talking. This conversation is about Mary Trump not being qualified to talk about President Trump. You are the one who took this conversation all over the place. When I challenged you and you have no balls to address your double standards you want deflect within your multiple deflections. What a funny ball-less wonder you are!

    • Rudolph Simmonds | August 7, 2020 at 2:18 PM | Reply

      @Tingle Matthews no one needs to hear from Mary Trump to define what a incapable, incompetent president looks like. Nor do we need to look at other politicians or presidents to judge THIS president. You choose to look at everything and everyone on the planet to grade your role model on a curve. HE IS THE PRESIDENT TODAY! ALL PROBLEMS AND BENEFITS DURING HIS PRESIDENCY ARE HIS AND HIS ALONE.
      This isn’t debatable. He is trash!

      MSNBC producer Ariana Pekary publicly announced her resignation from the notoriously xtreme left-wing network in a soul-searching and passionate blog. Pekary became increasingly appalled by the way MSNBC, and all corporate fakenews, have sacrificed journalism for whatever overtly political content will garner the best ratings‼️“The model blocks🐽diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentives to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings,” she writes.
      Pekary revealed that “behind closed doors, industry leaders will admit the damage 🙈 that’s being done” to journalism, and a senior MSNBC producer confessed, “Our viewers don’t really consider us the news. They come to us for comfort.”

      @Downright Dutch This stuff happens. By the way…what you jokers conveniently leave out in your rants about this is that she still thinks Trump is a bumbler…and she clearly emphasized that her personal complaints concerning journalism at the moment were with ALL the commercial networks…yes, including those with a more to the right bias.

      Anyway, a few folks checking out of a massive industry isn’t exactly some kinda ‘see, told ya’ moment. *chuckle* Maybe in a potatoes imaginings. I hear y’all are in your glee with the right’s truncated story on this. Anyway, keep scrabbling in the ditch for better ammo baby. Keep in mind, there’s only 89 days left for you and your crutch.

  7. Trump doesn’t care or love America, he only love putin and money for himself.

    • Dave Ponsford he doesn’t take the president salary from the government duh, of course his business pays him

    • Dave Ponsford | August 7, 2020 at 5:11 AM | Reply

      @Justin Page First his business shouldn’t pay him, that’s illegal. Second I’m talking about taxpayer money he gets from golfing at his own courses. Now offer him a salary, but take away his income he pays himself from the taxpayer.

    • Dave Ponsford what kind of taxes does he get for that?

    • Dave Ponsford | August 7, 2020 at 5:44 AM | Reply

      @Justin Page Are you that dumb? All the costs to protect him and cater to him, goes from taxpayers, straight into Trump’s pockets. As does Republicans holding events at his properties, at an increased rate. Diverting military to his properties. All emolument violations and that’s without including lobbyists and foreign countries. Put all presidents in history together and its less than Trump earned in 1 year.

    • Dave Ponsford 😂😂 okay man just keep watching mainstream news🍷

    Should Trump loose in November, the headlines following the results in all newspapers ; “it is what it is”

  9. Trump: “You know, there are those that say, you can test too much. You do know that?”

    Axios reporter: “Who says that?!”

    Trump: “Just read the manuals.”

    Axios reporter: “What manuals?!?!”

    Trump: “Read the books.”

    Axios reporter: “WHAT BOOKS?!?!”
    😂😆😂😄😂

    That portion of the Axios interview had me in tears.😂

  10. That is why I am Voting President Joe Biden on November 3, 2020. It is what it is.

    • What makes you think that Joe Biden care for his people? He literally insult his own supporters such as lairs, too old to vote for him and much more.
      Proof: https://youtu.be/bccEJJS56-w

    • I honestly would rather to pick Bernie Sanders but people rather to vote for Biden than Bernie just because he’s Obama’s former vice president which is ridiculous.

  11. “He didn’t even care when Russia put a bounty on the lives of American troops.”
    Neither did any elected Republican.
    Because, that’s what Republicans truly are, underneath all the lies, cheating and stealing.
    They’re all cowards.

    • @Ambria Ashley just war mongering profiteers ,who cares if a few murderers in green die. more the better.

    • Thats why I now refer to them as Repubelicans, or just pubes for short lmao 🤣

      MSNBC Producer Quits, Says Her Channel Is A ‘Cancer’ That ‘Stokes National Division’
      BY JOHN HANSON
      AUGUST 4, 2020 AT 2:10PM

      Share Tweet Share Share Flip It Comment Email
      On Monday, a former MSNBC producer wrote an open letter explaining why she left the leftist cable outlet last week, slamming them as a “cancer” that is “stoking national division” by amplifying “fringe voices” and forcing “journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.”

      The letter’s author, Ariana Pekary, described herself as an “integral member” of MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”

      ‘We are a cancer and there is no cure’
      “July 24th was my last day at MSNBC,” Pekary wrote. “I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore.”

      Mediavine
      “My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions,” she said. “The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.”

      Pekary claimed that it was “practically baked in to the editorial process” at MSNBC that content decisions were almost exclusively what might get the most ratings and that privately “industry leaders will admit the damage that’s being done.”

      She says a high profile TV veteran told her, “We are a cancer and there is no cure. But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

      Pekary said a senior producer told her ‘Our viewers don’t really consider us the news. They come to us for comfort’
      “As it is, this cancer stokes national division, even in the middle of a civil rights crisis,” Pekary said. “The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings.”

      Mediavine
      “Context and factual data are often considered too cumbersome for the audience,” Pekary added. “There may be some truth to that (our education system really should improve the critical thinking skills of Americans) – but another hard truth is that it is the job of journalists to teach and inform, which means they might need to figure out a better way to do that.”

      “They could contemplate more creative methods for captivating an audience. Just about anything would improve the current process, which can be pretty rudimentary (think basing today’s content on whatever rated well yesterday, or look to see what’s trending online today),” she wrote.

      Pekary said that she has heard her co-workers “deny their role as journalists,” and said that a “senior producer” told her, “Our viewers don’t really consider us the news. They come to us for comfort.”

      Pekary says she craves a ‘full and civil discourse’
      “Through this pandemic and the surreal, alienating lockdown, I’ve witnessed many people question their lives and what they’re doing with their time on this planet,” Pekary wrote. “I reckon I’m one of those people, looking for greater meaning and truth.”

      Mediavine
      “As much as I love my life in New York City and really don’t want to leave, I feel fortunate to be able to return to Virginia in the near term to reconnect with family, friends, and a community of independent journalists,” she said. “I’m both nervous and excited about this change. Thanks to COVID-19, I’m learning to live with uncertainty.”

      “More than ever, I’m craving a full and civil discourse,” Pekary concluded.

He’s not as rich as he wants us to think, he’s a joke. Crook, pervert and adulterer? Lol just the kind of guy his ignorant voters love.

  15. Trump never planned to be president. It was all a marketing stunt and a monetary transaction. And it still is.

    • @Randy Cleveland in the UK its innocent until proven guilty, probably the same in the US.
      Im no Trump fan, don’t like him one bit, but until they check for evidence, then have a fair unbiased trial, no crime can be assumed to have taken place. We can all have our opinions and gut instincts. The truth will come out in the end.

    • @Randy Cleveland It’s not a crime but withholding tax returns means you’re hiding a crime otherwise who cares right?

    • Randy Cleveland | August 6, 2020 at 11:14 AM | Reply

      @Light23K You are correct, it’s not a crime to withhold taxes. Can you imagine the tangent the media would be on in trying to decipher corporate tax returns? Just another distraction we dont need.
      There is no requirement for any politician to produce their personal tax returns.
