      @David M But he told us he knew more than the generals also what happend to the best healthcare for a fraction of the price as the ACA didn’t he say Mexico was going to pay for the wall

    • @Muddy Water
      while we are at it
      lets blame Christianity for the KKK
      white nationalists, etc
      why not? same logic applies

  3. He’s making us weaker, people do not realize how much he is pandering to Russia, and to China and N Korea by default. This guy is the biggest and most powerful foreign agent in history.

    But Trump said ISIS is wiped out so that’s what Republicans believe. Remember they only periodically back the military, cops, schools, healthcare and so on…..they cant back everyone all the time how would they make that lobbyists cash.

  5. I’m sure the fact that t’rump watches 5 hours of cable news per day, is on Twitter 24/7, and has driven out all the qualified people in his administration has nothing to do with the fact that he’s utterly incompetent at his job. 🤔😆😝😂

    • I’m kinda glad he’s so incompetent sometimes lol that might sound ridiculous, but imagine how much damage a President Donald Trump who ISN’T completely inept could do!!

      Most of the people he’s fired thus far are gone because they dared disagree with this man-child who currently occupies our White House. And I certainly don’t mean Barron Trump… Now that the Mueller report is finished and Epstein has seemingly done himself in, Trump has decided to up the ante and play White House Monopoly, the Trump Version. Instead of hotels and whatever, players use pieces that look like little white houses and maps of the world and go around the board buying countries. That’s how Trump got the idea for the Greenland purchase. Hey, with no money for soap and cheap toothpaste for the migrant children, where’s Trump going to find the funds to buy Greenland? Well, he could always cut a few more corners — starve all the prisoners all over the country, rob deserving citizens of their social security checks, and stop paying the salaries of every federal employee. Then he could buy bloody Greenland, right? (I can’t stand hearing myself think these words, much less say them aloud!). Of course we won’t let him deprive his grown kids of their special security details. No way! We also will keep forking out lots of money for his many side trips to his golf clubs, etc. We’ll starve Americans and deprive innocent children of basic health items so he can buy Greenland… Geez! For someone who’s baffled us and the world with his stupidity and so much BS, I didn’t know that Trump had even worse stuff to dish out.

      We all know Pence is running the country, right? 🤔😄😆

  6. i$i$ and trumPutin have two things in common, they are the enemy of our democracy and they belong to RUSSIA

    I thought Trump knew more about defeating ISIS than his generals.

  8. Just send in trump with an AK-27…that’s the child’s version of the AK-47.
    Sorry donny, no Cappuccino machines in the fox holes. 😄

  9. Standby, Trump is now going to try and fire the entire US military via tweet for being mean to him. So unfair.

  10. Congress do your job! Remove trump now. Don’t wait for 2020. He will CHEAT AGAIN like he did in 2016.

    • Oh! I’ll show my taxes. Here we are almost 3 years later, NOTHING. All the Democrats have turned over theirs, so for him to be on ballot he should show this time for lying and showing nothing last time.

      The Democratic Congress or doing something about it what your getting is Flack from the president and Republican Party because they protect him! also the Republicans are in control of the Senate and the Republican will never impeach this president! That why you got Moscow Mich protecting the president and he’s the one that’s in charge of the Senate! But the Congress has the power to put the brakes on this president! sometimes I don’t think they know how to execute that power!

      Most people don’t realize how complex the impeachment of a president really is. To be kicked out of office, Trump would have to receive 2/3 of the 100 senatorial votes in favour of impeachment. Proceedings would be presided by the vice-prez. Not good news, especially with a Republican-majority Senate. Yikes! Talk about getting a bucket of ice cold water dumped on your exhausted and aching head… 🤪🤯😱😓🤬😵

    • Lucid Dreamer | August 21, 2019 at 7:14 AM | Reply

      Yes! Please! Listen to Truth91! Proceed with impeachment! Zoom in, even further, on the Left’s insanity! Trump is already guaranteed 2020, thanks to the Left/Progressives.

    Crushing ISIS and winning trade wars are both easy, oh wait…

    • Michael Blodgett | August 20, 2019 at 6:18 PM | Reply

      I’m happy to see all the hard work he’s doing is lowering the national debt! He’s doing exactly as he said he would.

      Yes, that is sarcasm!

      ” Nobody knew healthcare waould b so complicated”.. Donald Trump

  12. The pentagon has become a pentagram under orange Hitler. Meanwhile, Over at trump Fox News they are busy calling our security people liars and traitors while they lick trumps butt hole. Since when did treachery become freedom of speech? Lock up Murdoch.

      The Pentagon pentagram — very witty and a propos! Orange Bonespurs is making sure the little foxes at Fox News keep this particular news item in the Murdoch foxhole. Besides, he doesn’t want to confuse his lame-brained minions with anything that might resemble a fact. As far as Trump goes, facts are for losers and Democrats; and he’s neither. Yet, poor Trumpy has to put up with these generals and military bigwigs who think they know more about ISIS than he does. Hm… He needs to show them who’s boss in the US army and in this country. If he says he’s defeated ISIS and sent them all running for the hills, well, that’s what happened. These Pentagon goons don’t know what they’re talking about. They must all be Democrats. That’s why he needs to set things straight for Tucker Carlson, Hannity and the rest of the fox squad. Hey, they’ll go on TV and say what he tells them to say, because they know he’s smarter than everyone put together and knows how to deal with this terrorist business. Hey, he’s not the best New York real estate business man for nothing, ya know… LOL!!! 😃🤩😁🤑
      The day we awake to Trump making sense about anything and telling the truth about whatever is the day the Earth will do summersaults all over the Milky Way.

    Donald Trump is working against our National Security Interests and to the benefit of a foreign adversary. If this isn’t treason, what is?

  14. lol…I doubt if FOX will be reporting this.

      Nah! If the headlines don’t make Trump look good, Fox makes sure they don’t make the cut. And that’s how that particular fox hunts, folks!

    • Jeremy Backup | August 20, 2019 at 2:54 PM | Reply

      I’m certain they won’t. And if anyone on a live segment brings it up, they will cut to commercial like they always do.

      There is a reason why Fox News is banned in half the countries around the Globe.

    • They might, but they will spin it to deflect from trump and blame someone else.

      Google “Timber Sycamore” and check out who armed and trained ISIS

  15. John Swofford | August 20, 2019 at 1:53 PM | Reply

    If you believed Trump when he proclaimed ISIS was defeated, you are not paying close attention. Trump will lie even though he knows he will be caught in the lie. His rabidly, blind supporters could care less about Trump’s lies. In fact, most of them love being lied to.

    …But Trump said ISIS was significantly weakened by him and would soon be eliminated entirely. Does that mean someone is lying? Who do we believe? Should we believe the military officials or a known liar that is wantonly trying to destroy our country??

      ISIS will be gone from Syria and Iraq when the Sahara Desert starts melting into a nice pool of cool water… Why would anyone believe Donald Trump in matters that army officers are 100% knowledgeable about? Who do we believe? Geez, there’s no contest: we believe the generals, the people who know what’s happening in the areas where the American armed forces are stationed. We don’t believe the generally incompetent individual disguised as the US president. We don’t believe Trump because he makes unsubstantiated statements. He either lies or provides confusing and incomplete information. In this case, Trump has always wanted to be the president who would eradicate ISIS from its strongholds. Hey, that’s a great thing to aim towards, but it doesn’t happen overnight. And who gives the enemy a heads-up about leaving an area? Trump’s damned ego prevented him from seeing the potential harm — now a reality as per the Pentagon report — that his false claims would bring. By removing US troops from the area and telling everyone about it, Trump gave ISIS permission to return and get re-established in Syria and Iraq — and elsewhere, I am sure. Dumb! Dumb, irresponsible and dangerous.

  17. And another dump bonus is we are back in an arms race with russia. Yeah, at this point I’m tired of ” winning “. Exhausted actually.

      Theres alot more “winning” comin your way before 2020. I just hope we all dont win our way into a nuclear “win”

  18. Patrick Mitchell | August 20, 2019 at 3:26 PM | Reply

    Trump withdrew because Putin told him to do so. He obeys.

  19. But…but…I thought Trump destroyed Isis all by himself?

  20. Ivan McBleedy | August 20, 2019 at 3:54 PM | Reply

    Well, that’s 2 groups of people Donald Trump has helped:
    The top wealthiest 1%
    and now ISIS
