    Trump: “The whistleblower should be WHACKED!”

    • Keith Pieterse Lol what he wants to say.

      @E M. : He wants the whistleblower to be dumped in the East River wrapped in a concrete blanket! What a [t]Rump! A bison’s rear end is cleaner and more sanitized than his brain! Enough!

    • @E M. – In none-too-thinly-veiled terms, #45 *already has said, just that* regarding the whistleblower…and those that assisted him/her.
      #45 – *So* embarrassing for America…and pretty d*mn ‘unpatriotic’, really. 🤔

      Keith you are 100% right. That is the only reason the whistleblower is protected from crazies that would whack them. The troubling fact that the whistleblower and their sources were all Republicans in the White House. It would seem a few Republicans still believe in the Constitution and not in the illegal activities of Trump. They are all well known to the President, and have been close to him, and were working inside the White House and State Department. All of the hundreds of other White House leaks were from Republicans as well, Keith. They are the only ones that have access to such information….. Republican support for Trump seems to be on the decline as well as all those Republican White House employees that have left in the last few years.

    • Keith Pieterse Pauly Walnuts should do it.

    It’s none of Trump’s business how credible this Whistle Blower is.
    That is for OTHER PEOPLE to worry about.

  3. He can say my AG, but he can’t say my IG

    His transcript says the same thing the whistleblower said

    Let’s remember the president of Finland is sitting right next to him in this video.

    There is no “IF” it’s basically a fact you were stupid enough to release that memo!

  9. I spoke like him once at an executive meeting, and was quickly demoted to Junior Analyst….

    The “perfect” storm is coming

  11. He said “The whistleblower should be protected if “legitimate”, BUT….”

    So basically, he just doubled-down on his earlier threats & is still going after the whistleblower since his usage of the word “but” contradicts everything said before it, in addition to him questioning the proven validity of the whistleblower. 🤷‍♀️
    Maybe his lawyers asked him to modify his prior threats towards this person’s wellbeing. 🤷‍♀️

    He’s just a complete lying clown show !!! Enough is enough lock this fool up !!!

    “Rick Scott is a really smart man” – said no sane person ever.

  15. He is the KING of all reversal speak.
    You can decipher everything he actually means by switching “them“ to “I“

  16. He sounds like a 6 grader making excuses when caught cheating on a test…

    • northerniltree | October 2, 2019 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      A 6th grader isn’t a corrupt, insane narcissist. And, is smarter and more honest. Bad comparison.

    • @northerniltree agreed that a 6 grader not insane and corrupted compared to this guy… so should we call him crazy old man? Lol

    He’s falling apart. He’s an actual babbling fool. There’s an obvious lag time between his mouth and his brain.

    • stanley oleyte | October 3, 2019 at 1:18 AM | Reply

      Brian Thompson right! First he says whistleblower is a TRAITOR now he wants to protek lmao what a revolving door

  18. “What happened in 2016 is a disgrace to this country”. We know. We all know. The democrats are trying to fix that now.

    Talking out of both sides of his lyin’ liver lips….

    He’s incapable of ever finishing a sentence on the same point that he starts it on.
