    It’s always about the people, but nothing gets pass for the people. Both sides playing politics.

  3. From the U.K. : Watching in horror as the hysteria in America continues ..

    • @Victor Mason Is that your answer Mr. Mason, and when things aren’t going your way just up and leave.🤔

    • Pray for us.

    • WIDE AWAKE too bad it didn’t work.

    • H S you are that stupid? He signed an order declaring Kkk and Antifa domestic terrorist organizations. Search YouTube for Trump condemns white supremacy. Wake the f up

    • B Prathe …. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 You ask for prayer, insult and swear in the same breath…You should be ashamed of yourself…. An elderly man with so much rage …I hope you’re not a member of John MacArthur’s church – he would be so disappointed to know that he has foul mouthed , arrogant members like you . You really need to read your bible more often and ask God to create a clean spirit in you . Or maybe I will send a prayer request to Grace To You Ministry . By the way , it’s you who needs to research what ANTIFA really is . If you knew anything about Trump you’d know that his Father was arrested at a KKK parade . America’s enemies are truly within its borders not foreign mate .. You a clearly one of them .. Bye Sire !!

  4. What a fantastic way to energize the conservative voting base to get out and vote. Is Nancy capable of making a competent decision or does she only listen to her San Francisco base?

  5. I will never ever , take England for granted again. We really have it good and better than Americans…

    • @H S cause I was hoping you weren’t this dumb.

    • @H S You first. And explain why it matters.

    • Nick Knittle …. Yeah ! Yeah ! Yeah! Yeah 😘😘😘😘😗😗

    • itsthe11 ….. Have you ever heard of NATO or allied forces? Go figure it out Do you know that England is the 2nd largest arms dealer , We are a wealthy developed country , are a world leader in biomedical research, financial technology, advanced manufacturing , aerospace . We are a capitalist nation . No use explaining because . What have you as an individual work ?Yet you can research for yourself or should I understand.

    • itsthe11 ….. if you are ashamed – No worries

    Nobody cares Nancy
    #StimulusNow

  7. Another waste of time😒

    • Non starter worries.
      This is a perfect example of how I as a non attorney have prevailed against attorneys in ‘scores’ of legal controversies Pro Se and in two cases teams of tree attorneys and have NEVER lost a case. The tendency of attorneys in their haste to win a case against a non attorney whom they have underestimated, have generally been ill prepared having read and taken out of context only a ‘section’ of an entire law as Pelosi has done here. Ms. Pelosi and her so called constitutional “authority” (who obviously needs to go back to law school), are sadly mistaken on what the purposes set forth in parts 1-4 and the intention f amendment 25 and these sections
      This is explained in detail at the following link to a discussion / presentation that any lay person should be able to understand (but read it ALL, top of page to end, not like these two have done and picked a section that cannot stand alone and be misused in the way they propose as te intent is to PREVENT exactly what they propose set forth and explained in detail, especially part 4:
      https://www.lawfareblog.com/what-25th-amendment-really

      These sections were certainly not to enable an external body, entity, committee, commission or what have you to remove a president permanently outside the impeachment process, and clearly were concerned that people like Pelosi would want to misuse this section as NOT intended and for nefarious purposes such as based on one’s personal dislike for the president for example. This section is for the president him / herself to use to transfer power to the vice president for temporary purposes such as a surgery where the president could be under anesthesia and unconscious, but would immediately resume power when back to being conscious. It isn’t be used to remove a president permanently for frivolous reasons, even abuse of power (that’s the purpose of the impeachment process). in this case the frivolous intended use evidenced by Pelosi simply having a dislike for the president, which this section seeks to make certain the amendment is not used / or rather misused for. ) Moreover, the Vice President and two thirds f the House and Senate and / majority of the president’s cabinet AND the Vice president would have to be in agreement that the president cannot perform his / her job the send a letter to the President Pro Tempore to initiate the process of transfer of presidency “temporarily” to the vice president. Non of this will EVER happen as much as Ms. Pelosi wishes it would or could. Spread that link around and make it go viral!

    Refining the 25th Amendment with a “Nuttier-Than-A-Fruitcake-O-Meter” is a great idea.

  9. Like “Bones” telling Kirk “Jim, I am relieving you of command”.

  10. Nancy has no right to complain about anyone not wearing a mask when she wears hers completely wrong and if she was infected would literally be spewing out clouds of Coronavirus for those around her. also talking about becoming “incapacitated” she seems to be so, does she even know what she says anymore?

  11. Her mask is supposed to cover her nose!!

    EMBARRASSING

  13. Funny how she bring up the 25th amendment and then Trump changed his mind about relief talks right after! LOL SMH

      Regardless the 25th amendment needs to be addressed even if Biden wins it doesn’t matter because she’s saying that if incomplete. I don’t understand why people cannot streamline the garbage and really look at the context of what she’s saying . The only reason why she’s addressing it now is because of the current situation that we are in currently is really easy I don’t know how people can’t comprehend that.

    • @A M what ever! It worked on Trump to get him back on stimulus!

    • corey strickland | October 9, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      @A M I agree with the information that you sent and is an agreement about the 25th amendment however what I don’t agree with is you switching all the blame Pelosi. We have to be realistic and be a little bit more and transparent that’s our problem we look at one thing and we focus on that . It looks that we may not get Trump as a president however Biden he’s of age and there is a possibility of anything can happen to him or any of us considering I am . But let’s stay on the president this is a concern in general yes it may have stimulated because of our current issues with the president no different than black lives matters and white people jumping up and said but all lives matter but whites currently are not the ones getting shot or being mistreated unfairly. 90% of what you sent I agree with the 10% of how you feel baby feelings ain’t facts and feelings that get you in a lot of trouble. The fact of the matter is the 25th amendment wouldn’t been thought of unless something or someone in office it’s doing something that’s not normal of other presidents and it’s having a negative result on the American people now if you don’t want to swallow that pill hey I don’t know what to tell you.

  14. It is fair to say that Pelosi and Trump REALLY don’t like each other.

    • ylangylang26 luckily you and I are few who understand and see the truth. Trump is a danger to this country and it just keeps getting worse and worse with him as our leader. A country is always a reflection of their leader and I’ve never seen so much hate and division and chaos. That should tell people he is a horrible leader. Also, he sets a bad example by never wearing a mask and mocking those who do. Which is why he and his administration are one by one catching Covid and falling like flies! It’s called karma! Lol. Nancy is doing her job of protecting the American people yet ppl give her a hard time for it. I just don’t understand ppl in America today. How are ppl not awake to what’s really going on. It’s quite terrifying!

    • They probably secretly hook up

    • James Collier | October 9, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      re: original comment. It’s more like Trump has her so gaslit that she’s galacticly freaking out. She’s not easy to look at and creates more republicans as the party goes left. He’s really playing her and the media.

    • He can’t be bought like her.

    • Looney Nancy seems to like looking foolish!!!!! She loks dumber and dumber.

  15. Can we apply this to speakers as well…

  16. William Clark | October 9, 2020 at 4:03 PM | Reply

    Translation is I am the only one who is allowed to be a fruitcake.

  17. Pelosi won’t say it, but introducing this 30 days in front of an election is ALL ABOUT paving the way for Kamala Harris with Joe Biden’s removal.

    Kamala Harris Said She Was ‘Absolutely’ Open to Court Packing in 2019

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), during a 2019 interview with the New York Times, said she was “absolutely” open to expanding the size of the Supreme Court.

    When asked, “Are you open to expanding the size of the Supreme Court?” in a 2019 interview with the New York Times, Harris, stated that she remained “absolutely” open to it.

    “Senator Harris told me in an interview, actually, that she was absolutely open to doing that,” New York Times reporter Alexander Burns said during Thursday’s episode of the Times’ podcast.

    “But we’ve not heard her reiterate that recently so I think for them there is this balancing act of they don’t want to alienate moderate voters,” he added. “They also don’t want to send a demoralizing signal to their own party”:

  19. She’s doing this just in case Biden wins they will say he’s to old and mentally ill and can’t be president making disgusting Harris president!! This can’t happen!

  20. She must’ve been crying a lot because I don’t see her with makeup on.
