67 Comments on "Peter Strzok: ‘Staggering’ That Trump Admits To Preferring Dictators | The Last Word | MSNBC"

  1. “I believe president Putin. He was very powerful in his defense.”

    – Russian Puppet 45

    • Biggus Dickus that was one of his more stupid remarks. PUTIN is playing Trump, like putty is his hands, and Trump is to dumb to realize it.

    • That was the Helsinki moment every Military Veteran family member and their lifelong brotherhoods changed registration and Vowed on the Country they Honorably served, to vote for any opponent on either side of the Traitor that have desecrated, denigrated and shamed everything our Country represents. When he and the NRA bullied potential candidates that wanted to run on that ticket, We vowed to Vote for any Dem, who now is Biden. We will be Riden with Team Biden. There is a Russian Agent occupying the peoples house and we are all in danger. . VOTE 💙💙🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸.

    • @Karen Smith; Pay attention, he was “quoting” you missed the whole point, and 10 come by and agree with you? What is up with America, do people pay attention to anything?

    • @Linda PS; It seems so obvious, particularly with his behavior, and the cult is like “la ti da” “nothing to see here”!!!

    • @Doug Lowe I think the ‘pp tape’ was a distraction. Trump has borrowed 3 billion from Deutsche Bank over the years. And Russian oligarchs have laundered money through that bank. Trump lied to the american people, saying he had no business in Russia. meanwhile Trump has a signed letter of intent to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, on his desk. He can person vouch for Trump’s lies. So with this and other things. Trump owns Putin. Putin’s oligarchs could influence Deutsche Bank, to cut Trump off, and other such things.

  2. Putin knows what a moron trump is. He wouldn’t work with him directly. Too risky. He uses trump. Putin owns trump.

    • Keep telling yourself THAT!
      But ask yourself WHY Putin hasn’t taken the Ukraine after Russia’s initial push? You can’t tell me they don’t have the military strength to do it. OR, is it because Trump gave the Ukrainians the proper weaponry{Obama only gave them blankets} to defend themselves from invasion and a VERY public worldwide warning that there would be consequences for such aggression! I think you’ll find that it is Putin that is scared of Trump not the other way around!

    • Trump exhibits all of the following characteristics:
      1) Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
      2) Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
      3) Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
      4) Supremacy of the Military
      5) Rampant Sexism
      6) Controlled Mass Media
      7) Obsession with National Security
      8) Religion and Government are Intertwined
      9) Corporate Power is Protected
      10) Labor Power is Suppressed
      11) Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
      12) Obsession with Crime and Punishment
      13) Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
      14) Fraudulent Elections

      What are these characteristics? These are the 14 defining characteristics of fascism.

    • tanon so true! Most Americans realize that fact.

    • @Mr Jones This also describes MOST of the established politicians in the governors chairs, the House and the Senate! If YOU claim Trump is ALL of these things but DON’T see them on YOUR side of the isle than you are blind or ignorant or maybe both! And just speaking for myself there are several that he isn’t guilty of….numbers 2,3,,5,6{dem run msm},8,10,11,13,and 14. WOW actually that a lot wrong…..sorry dude I have to classify you as fake news! But EVERY ONE of those DOES describe the HOUSE of REPS demonrats over the last 4 years! GOOD JOB ON THAT!!!!!

    • Mr Jones 💙🗽💙ThankYou🗽Been studying fascism since childhood💙🗽💙its been here since day he was sworn in💙🗽ThankYouAgain💙😷

    Because like him, they’re all narcissistic psychopaths. Simple answer right there.

    • @John Monfette *_YOU_* are talking about Hillary. Nobody else was.

    • @Tony P I’ll chose to respond to both your posts with this: Faux did to ME what CNN and msnbc did to YOU! The difference from me and you is that of the two of us, I am the one watching ALL the news and filtering it. Where as you seem simply content with ONLY half a story. Do you ONLY read half a book!?!? How can you possibly get the whole truth with only ONE set of lies! DUDE, it really is 2020 and you are NOW realising that it is YOU that is way behind me! This is your “get woke” moment……….you are welcome!

    • @G Guest Well….. you are……and so is everyone that responded to me! That is the beauty of outsmarting people. NOW, all her crimes come flooding back to the front of your mind and you need to have CNN and msnbc reprogram that much harder so you forget them again! Thank you for joining this “reality check” Mr. G Guest!

    • @Brad Gies As much as Killary is I guess. Don’t you agree? Or that terrorist lover O-bomba for that matter. OH, let us NOT forget china’s bed buddy Biden. He has been in office so long he remembers working with KKK members from the democratic party back in the 60s and 70s……Remember, they called HIM boy. His own words….

    • @Kelly Trump is no different in HIS business practices than say G. So-gross or the Clinton and their foundation practices. So, in short, not a big fan of ANY big- wig businessmans practices. As far as Trump’s role as POTUS however….. BIG FAN, YES!!!

  4. I don’t know how anybody that calls themselves a patriot can support a traitor like Donald J Trump

    • @YouTube Moderator Who was shot, where and when?
      Weren’t right extremists arrested in Minneapolis during the riots from out of state? Wasn’t the kid with the AR15 a para military trainee? Wasn’t the person killed in Portland one of the pro Trump people, that were driving through crowds launch projectiles, and chemical sprays? Wasn’t the confessed shooter after claiming self defense, extra judiciously shot while unarmed?

    • @YouTube Moderator Johnson’s famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. … With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit it is the first. Ambrose Bierce’s a civil war veteran.

    • Tip: Russian trolls never actually watch the video. That’s why they comment on the comments and don’t respond to the substance of the video. The more people respond to them, the more they are paid. Try not to feed the trolls. Thx.

    • @Wendy Anderson Point taken. Ambrose Bierce’s in his dictionary says the following:
      Johnson’s famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. … With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit it is the first.😉

    • @YouTube Moderator How do you justify Trump’s criminal admission to Negligent Homicide?

  5. When Chinese President Xi changed the country’s constitution to allow him to stay in power indefinitely. Trump it was a good idea, and dreams of doing the same thing.

    In remarks at Mar-a-Lago, Trump praised the Chinese president’s recent power grab and said he wouldn’t mind trying it himself.

    Trump: “He’s now president for life. President for life. No, he’s great,” Trump said. “And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday.”

    • The Republican Party is no longer a political party/movement. It’s a criminal organization

    • @BC stargazer

    • “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

    • @Kevin Lee Trump is good at turning a democracy into a fascist state. And that makes him goog for nothing in my opinion which l am expressing before Trump shuts down free speech with his fascism. Give me socialism like they have in Europe any day to the Hitler policies of Trump.

    • @Nancy M Ross…More:

      #8 – Religion and Government are Intertwined.
      Trump has TOTALLY used religion…intertwined it into his political message. “The godless left”…look at his rallies, they are closer to religious revival meetings than political rallies. You’re blind if you don’t see that.

      #9 – Corporate Power is Protected.
      Trump took office promising a business-friendly, deregulatory agenda. Shortly after taking office, he issued an executive order that for every new regulation put in place, two had to be eliminated. His deregulatory agenda extends into the rules that protect our nation’s air and water and address climate change. Corporate friendly…but not good for the health and well being of the people.

      #10 – Labor Power is Suppressed.
      Too much to cover here…read this if you really want to know the truth:

      #11 – Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts.
      For decades, the Republican Party has worn a “know-nothing” facade to appeal to ordinary Americans, but it’s no longer just talk — they have truly created a “know-nothing” president with Trump. Republicans going all the way back to Eisenhower have masqueraded by pretending to be dumber than they actually were by attacking elite intellectuals and snobs and so forth as a way to identify with the common man. With Trump it’s different.
      Those leaders were not themselves actually stupid or ignorant, If you think about Eisenhower or Nixon, they were actually incredibly worldly, sophisticated, and knowledgeable. The problem is that Donald Trump is every bit as ignorant in reality as his predecessors only pretended to be. In a way, the joke’s kind of on the Republican Party because after masquerading for decades, the Republican Party has actually become the ‘Stupid Party.”
      Trump thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room, when in reality he’s usually the dumbest guy in the room. He dismisses the opinions of medical experts for his ‘hunches’. Trump, in his first federal budget plan, proposed eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

      Trump also proposed scrapping the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a key revenue source for PBS and National Public Radio stations, as well as the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

      #12 – Obsession with Crime and Punishment.
      I count dozens and dozens of Trump tweets since his inauguration that use the word “crime.” Some complain that he is being investigated for a “made up, phony crime” or charge Hillary Clinton with “many crimes.” But most seem to relate to a candidate: Dan Donovan is “strong on Borders & Crime.” Kevin Cramer of North Dakota is “strong on Crime & Borders.” Doug Jones is “WEAK on Crime.” Adam Laxalt is “tough on crime!” “Chuck and Nancy…are weak on Crime.” Ralph Northam is “weak on crime.” Also “VERY weak on crime!” “Keep our country out of the hands of High Tax, High Crime Nancy Pelosi.” And so on.
      Lately it’s Biden who will let the radical criminal left roam the streets and only Trump can stop it from happening. Trump claims Biden wants to defund the police…a total lie. Biden has said he would redirect some social-services responsibilities away from police departments and roll back investments in military gear, but he also wants to increase federal funding for community policing.

      #13 – Rampant cronyism and corruption.
      The fundamental purpose of government is rather simple: protect the citizenry. Any deliberate perversion of this priority is an exercise of corruption—especially when that basic aim is supplanted by the goal of personal gain. Trump’s slow, ineffectual, self-serving, and deadly response to the coronavirus has been the most consequential act of corruption in the history of American governance. It eclipses Watergate, Teapot Dome, Iran-Contra, you name it. It also happens to be the continuation—perhaps the culmination—of the corruption that Trump started spreading like a virus the moment he tramped into the White House.

      #14 – Fraudulent Elections.
      The Senate Intelligence Committee, a bi-partisan panel LED BY REPUBLICANS… has said there is no question that Donald Trump, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Julian Assange all coordinated with a Russian spy and GRU member, Konstantin Kilimnik…and a Putin ally, one Oleg Deripaska, to subvert the integrity of the 2016 election, and to undermine the American democratic process. The reports finding clearly state is Trump was a willing participant in a coordinated attempt by a hostile foreign power to undermine our election process.
      In 2020, Trump continues to cover for Russian election interference. He has directed his intelligence agencies to stop researching and reporting on Russian election interference, and instead to direct their efforts toward China and Iran. At least one DHS career official has resigned over this policy, and a Department of Homeland Security official, Brian Murphy, filed a whistleblower complaint filed a whistle-blower complaint on Sept. 8th alleging that the head of DHS, Chad Wolfe told him to stop reporting on the Russian threat to the U.S. election because it “made President Trump look bad.” Murphy refused to comply, stating that the presidents personal image wasn’t reason to discontinue reporting on matters of national security. Murphy was subsequently demoted and transferred.
      The White House and DHS denied the allegations.

      This is a good catalog of many of Trump’s crimes and atrocities:

  6. I prefer Presidents who aren’t Putin Patsies and side with America not Russia.

    Trump and his administration are fast becoming Putins greatest asset in destabilising Western democracies and alliances.

    How much more time are we going to allow this guy to destroy our country and put our security at risk? Donald Trump is an enemy of the state in his own words and in his own non actions and actions. Keeping him in power until the election is a huge mistake….He is a desperate and sick man!

    • Looks like the Republican Party believe’s COVID-19 will become much stronger especially in deaths for the Fall & Winter months in the USA . But the King called COVID-19 a Hoax that will “miraculously” disappear. Here is what I’m thinking concerning manipulation of COVID-19 & reelection of the King. I still believe Russia (big financial friend of the King & his Family especially huge loans not being paid, etc.) will enter the USA (with the help of the King & his Court) before the 2020 Election & Stop it – promote the King from President to Dictator over the entire USA – even more of a big surprise than COVID-19. The King wants more than just on term in office – I believe he wants a lot of office terms with extreme power & wealth (from the 30 billionaires & wealthy Republicans, etc. who Did support him & the Family). You can be quite sure they will be Stopped from leaving the USA). The Democratic Party still does not get it & dreams he will be gone like all the rest & Uncle Joe will be the new President but the King has support from other countries that probably go back to the wealthy Father in New York – who knows how many military bases were built by him (by contractors from other countries like say Israel, etc.) in Russia? When Russia does take over most of Congress – many of the important Republicans will be put in jail right away like say the Postmaster General, AG, top official in the Department of Health & Human Services, individual Republican State people etc. Do you think for one minute Russia will support these people? They might do the same thing to them what they did to the USA. If Russia does enter the USA – I believe there will first be a complete & total power blackout of the USA including all internet & hacking of many online bank accounts & take it from there with COVID-19 running wild just what will happen to the USA after that before the 2020 Election – This is the best time for all this to happen – not after he gets reelected again for many reason’s like for example more time (the right time) for the King & the Family to get bumped off by others from this corrupt Republican Party like say VP Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, etc. – will see.

      @Maharajji NKB Trump lovers watch fox, not msnbc. I think your lost.

    • @Maharajji NKB Where do you get your KOOLAID from? I would suggest that you contact a 12 step group, so that you can stop the brain damage, as your critical analysis subroutine has become completely inoperable. Once the withdrawal has passed, it will be like returning to the light, maybe try reading Woodward’s Book, it could kick-start your non functional subroutine, it may save your life.

  8. Trump’s presidency is a crap reality show.
    “The Dictator’s Apprentice” We’ve been watching as Donald Trump learns from his favorite evil leaders; MBS, Kim Jong-un, and of course, Trump’s idol, Vladimir Putin.

    *There is a rumor that it will be canceled after it’s first season, due to such terrible ratings.🤞

  9. “The president has an authoritarian streak.”

    • And delusional, pathological lying streak:)

    • Linda Taylor that’s true but it’s an understatement. HE CRAVES POWER. AND he wants to be a Dictator in the worst way…emphasis on WORST

    • @Karen Smith I was just quoting the man in the video. But you’re probably right. You would think he’d flee from leadership and responsibility after doing such a poor job for 4 years.

    He gets worse everyday.

    • Karen Smith – When the election is certified and the inauguration day comes along Trump will no longer be president and he will be marched out by Biden. Biden needs to be tougher and call this guy a laughing stock worldwide, he is killing people, he has no knowledge of science. I hope he destroys this orange clown at the debates.

    • Siobhan Shavonne | September 15, 2020 at 12:11 PM | Reply

      The entire media needs to say what it is. We have a person with mental health issues who exhibits criminal behavior along with authoritarian tendencies running the country. And something needs to be done about it.

    • @Karen Smith Worry not. If Trump loses the election, on January 20th at noon, he is no longer president, and the White House Secret Service will march him out the door, physically if necessary. That’s part of their job. To remove trespassers. —- And in case you are not aware about how the actual furniture moving works. It ALL happens on inauguration day, when the new president and the old president are BOTH out of the White House going to the inauguration and then all the subsequent events and parties. Here’s an article from 2017 that explains it. — I find the ONE day moving concept really interesting. 😊

    • And we still have nearly 50 day before the voting ends.

    • Karen Smith – If Biden win then, on 21st of January 2021, Trump will no longer be president – it does not matter what he wants then. Trump is a bully and like all bullies, he will back down when challenged.

  11. Trump has nothing to offer except being a cheerleader. No health care plan, no infrastructure and no foreign policy.

  12. clear and present danger.

  13. Trump likes the way Kim runs N Korea. Is that where he wants to take America?

  14. Its good to know that the CLOWN is useful to someone.
    Too bad it’s not to his own country !

  15. Dictators tend to have a low IQ…Leaders are smart. Trump is a dictator

  16. “We have a backup plan if Trump gets elected.”

    – Peter Strzok


    • I love it, I find Peter to be an incredible guy, and he truly is a patriot. (He reminds me of myself, I too would have sent such emails to a friend, but still done my job properly).

  17. Scared little traitor. Orange jump suit is in his future.


  19. Everybody has overlooked its comment on systemic racism in America.

    “Authoritarian streak” is an understatement about Trump Cluster B personality disorder psychopath
