  1. Pres. Trump’s Handling Of The Transition Is ‘Innapropriate’ And ‘Reckless’….Same as the handling of the Pandemic….Basically, everything He does.

    • Trump’s handling of transition – innapropriate?
      First off, there will be no transition if the election results showing a Biden win are proven to be fraudulent.
      Second – Obamagate.
      While smiling to his adoring fans, Obama was busy behind the scenes scheming a soft coup against President-elect Trump. They concocted the Trump-Russia plan. Obama then moved a few miles down the road from the WH to set up shop, to undermine the Trump Presidency. Evil.

    • @Gymnastics101 😂😂😂

    • Yep, Kagan…#45✳ was… *’great’* for America. 🙄
      U.S. farmers *on welfare for the past TWO years* …
      “GM” *laid off* workers *last year* …
      “U.S. Steel Co.” *laid off* workers *last year* …
      *SEVEN* coal companies closed *in 2019* alone…and *MANY more* to follow.
      *520,000 FEWER jobs* than expected in 2019 and *so, SO much WORSE* this year – and the markets *warned #45✳* about his feckless financial games… *months ago:*
      #45✳ – *So* embarrassing for America, *cretinously inept* with America’s wallet… and now *’FATAL’ for 242,000+ Americans.*

    • ^Yes…all Trump’s fault 😂

    • The following is a brief summary of the many accomplishments of President Trump and his administration. This record was achieved in spite of four years of constant baseless attacks by the Democrats and their friends in the media.

      International recognition

      President Trump received three separate nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize

      Prior to the Covid 19 forced shutdown of the economy:

      Almost 4 million jobs created since 2016 election.
      More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history.
      Created more than 400,000 manufacturing jobs since 2016 election.
      Manufacturing jobs grew at the fastest rate in more than three decades.
      Economic growth has been as high as 4.2 percent.
      New unemployment claims hit a 49-year low.
      Median household income hit highest level ever recorded.
      The Wall Street Journal’s Eric Morath and Jeffrey Sparshott report: “Pay for the bottom 25% of wage earners rose 4.5% in November from a year earlier, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Wages for the top 25% of earners rose 2.9%. Similarly, the Atlanta Fed found wages for low-skilled workers have accelerated since early 2018, and last month matched the pace of high-skill workers for the first time since 2010.”
      African-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, women and youth unemployment were the lowest rates ever recorded.
      Lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma.
      Veterans’ unemployment recently reached its lowest rate in nearly 20 years.
      Since Covid 19 arrived from China, the economy is now recovering. The pace of the recovery is slowed by Democrat run states not opening their economies.

      Tax relief

      An Opportunity Zone is a designation and investment program created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 allowing for certain investments in lower income areas to have tax advantages.
      The biggest package of tax cuts and reforms in history. All economic classes benefited.
      Small businesses will have the lowest top marginal tax rate in more than 80 years.

      Providing more affordable healthcare options for Americans through association health plans and short-term duration plans. They will cover pre-existing conditions
      Preserving the 180M health plans provided by employers
      Many drug companies are freezing or reversing planned price increases.
      Reformed the Medicare program, saving seniors hundreds of millions of dollars this year alone.
      Signed Right-To-Try legislation.
      Secured $6 billion in new funding to fight the opioid epidemic.
      Reduced high-dose opioid prescriptions by 16 percent during first year in office.
      Signed VA Choice Act and VA Accountability Act, expanded VA telehealth services, walk-in-clinics, and same-day urgent primary and mental health care.

      In response to China’s efforts to spread COVID-19, not in China, but worldwide, China citizens were stopped from entering the USA. it is estimated that there would have been death numbers in the millions.

      Secured record military funding leading to a restoration of world-wide strength.
      Encouraged NATO allies to spend $69 billion more since 2016.

      Given the lack of judges left by Obama/Biden, more circuit court judges have been confirmed than any other new administration.
      Will have had three Supreme Court Justices confirmed by the end of October.
      Unlike Biden/Harris/Sanders/AOC, President Trump has no interest in packing the Supreme Court.

      Facilitated fracking.
      Became energy independent.
      The United States is now a net exporter of cheap natural gas for the first time since 1957.
      From the Wall Street Journal: “Energy-related CO2 emissions in the U.S. fell 2.8% last year. The U.S. saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis due to a 15% reduction in the use of coal”

      Facilitated treaties between Israel and two Middle East countries.
      Moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
      A U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Deal to replace NAFTA.
      An agreement with the E.U. to increase U.S. exports.
      Imposed tariffs on China in response to China’s forced technology transfer, intellectual property theft, and their chronically abusive trade practices.
      The above, and more, was accomplished in four years.

  2. Republicans think that “Humping the Flag” is “Patriotic” but don’t think that it’s UNpatriotic to destroy the Republic.

      @Soylent_Majority 46 No thank you, but thank you. I have 32 horses in my barn that love me allot. They remind me that no matter how awful and terrible humans can be, there are things worth living for🐎

      @Alyson onOahu Why thank you, but don’t you think those prayers might be better served for those on the left who have truly lost their way?

      @Cameron Fraser When a party has to cheat in order to win an election, then it must be fully investigated and where there is one dead person voting, surely there will be two, five, 30, 100, perhaps a thousand. Such is the desperation of the Democrats. Malfeasance is their mantra. Evil controls their every move…..👈👈👈

    • Victoria Weston | November 11, 2020 at 8:41 PM | Reply

      @Cameron Fraser Claim(s) is a relative term. If the President of the United States feels he has been cheated or deprived by outside sources attempting to unseat him or deny him a second term, he has the absolute right to have such claims investigated. Even if every single claim turns up nothing, it is his duty, his responsibility to ensure our elections are not being tampered with or compromised. Which, thanks to the Democrats, they are. The level of dishonesty coming from Democrats is staggering and quite frankly speaking, appalling. Almost to a man or women, the Democrats have hated my President since before he came down that escalator. Lodging attack after attack after attack. With the lefts loyal terriers in the liberal left media, my President has been subjected to the most outlandish lies ever said about a sitting President.

      Its despicable.

      @Victoria Weston yeah okay so you’re also a lying POS as well

  3. Its proof positive that the American people were correct to pick Biden.

  4. Don’t y’all see the smuck faces of these trumpets??? These guys are just bullies so treat them like you would treat a bully.

    Trump’s a wounded gazelle limping on his hind leg in the jungle and the Southern District of New York are hungry lions lying in wait to pounce on him after January 20th 2021.

  6. Today here in America, Patriots are commemorating the sacrifice millions made to preserve our Republic , while the Un-American traitorous Republicans are defending a draft dodger who is trying to destroy our Republic.

  7. REpublicans have collectively lost their minds

    the only “interest” the current occupant of the WH cares about is his own now going down the drain into the sewer.

  9. The Magical Unicorn Limited | November 11, 2020 at 2:40 PM | Reply

    Trump hasn’t been to a covid briefing in months he needs to step aside so Mr Biden can deal with this.

  10. He is positioning himself as a dictator and must be removed!!!

  11. Georgia it is in your hands to save America by voting for the Democrats in the Runoff Senate races.

    • Absolutely! Ditch MOSCOW Mitch as majority leader!

    • @Pakababy I desire to move there so I can vote this demon out of there. He’s a dinosaur. Get him out !

    • We live in the center of Georgia and my hubby and I will definitely vote for Warnock and Ossoff just like we did on Nov. 3rd! We are sick to death of moscow mitch and his merry band of henchmen. They are in it for the money and the power trips…..and not for the good of the country. COUNTRY OVER PARTY ANY DAY!

    • @P. McG – 👏👏👏
      Same here!

    Trump as always doesn’t want the truth to come out. Biden will soon know all Trump’s WH dirty secrets.

    • I think its both ways, biden has secrets too and I think Kamala does too

    • @Itzgreytonic you think isn’t fact, the fact is votes counting will finish. If he loses, he goes.. simple.

      Go cry on Michael Avenatti and Robert Mueller’s shoulder LIAR!!!

      Its totally appropriate you laughably irrelevant frauds.

      You are going to learn the HARD WAY.

      “God Has Already Declared The End From The Beginning – President Trump Will Be Re-Elected”

    • Biden is the winner and TrDump is the loser. That’s all that matters 👌👌👌
      Don’t mind any clowns 🤡 making any dumb statements. They don’t count 🤡 People chose Biden and he’s the winner and TrDump is the loser.

    • Biden will soon be thrown out of his basement.

  13. Well said. The GOP are not interested in democracy.

    • Throughout the Trump Presidency we have been told over and over and over #notmypresident, that he did not win and to RESIST!!! So the shoe is now on the other foot, STFU!! ANYONE who has a problem is someone who is afraid of letting the system work the way it is supposed to!! I wonder why?? What are they trying to hide? Al Gore!!

    • Spam-posting S is spam-posting… 👎

    • oh

  14. He’s been publicly spanked & ran off to eat his feelings. Now he’s just avoiding the walk of shame.

    • In 2016, *Hillary warned America* that #45✳ *would, inevitably* treat our nation *just like* his ‘Foundation’…or one of his *failed* marriages.
      She was 💯% *correct…* 🤨

    • Trump suffers from a severe form of narcissism and a hubris-nemesis complex. This is a definition of narcissistic personality disorder: one of several types of personality disorders — a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. Narcissists destroy those they cannot control.

    • @CynAnne1 The Clinton Foundation was a fake charity. The Clintons were using it as part of their influence peddling schemes when Hillary was Secretary of State.
      Ask the people in Haiti what they think of the Clintons. Almost all of the donations for Haiti natural disaster relief were re-directed to the Clintons and their buddies. Notice that donations to the Clinton Foundation all but completely dried up after Hillary lost the election. That should tell you something.

    • @Keith C BS

    • @Maharajji NKB= Russian Bot. NO channel. no info.

  15. America Democracy is under siege. The enemy is no longer at the gate, they’re in our Whitehouse.

    • NOT MY PRESIDENT take 2. Only this time it is for real. Google thinks they can stop the movement by censoring online content, but the masks are going to come off and we are going to be in the street. They can’t stop the people.

    • @CynAnne1 not for long……Drag him out of the Whitehouse by his goofy comb over on national television.

    • @Bart Bart they are too stupid to understand that concept

    • the enemy was in the white house from 2016

    • @Julie Sprik How will we get through this dark winter with covid? How will USA survive after another shutdown? What is the People’s plan? Not politicians but us regular people that aren’t rich; like Tom or Ellen, who can’t afford security?

    I wonder which documents the Trump Administration is destroying or trying to hide.

    • Right now nothing
      Because that would be admitting defeat
      Donald Trump will not allow it
      Which means on January 20th a lot of information will be in the hands of the new attorney general

  17. The United States doesn’t negotiate with Terrorists, . . . especially if they’re the president.

    He is trying to make this a dictatorship. Everyone answers to him and only him.


    • @Keith C amen 🙏

    • That’s BS and you don’t know what you’re talking about. God doesn’t like liars.

    • @Sam McCormack *absolutely he doesn’t and Trump is a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR*

    • ​@Rebecca A couple of other thoughts. I believe Trump demonstrates a severe form or narcissism and a hubris – nemesis complex. People with Narcissistic Personality Disorder have an exaggerated sense of self-importance, have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration, and expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it. They are capable of destroying those who disagree with them. Noted on the web; Narcissists feed heavily on the admiration of others (large and frequent rallies for example). Without other people, they are nothing. That’s why one of the biggest fears for narcissists is the complete lack of admiration from others.

    • @Keith C amen 🙏 that’s facts.
