  1. The most corrupt president ever, who surrounds himself with equally-corrupt, power-hungry yes men…also is infatuated with the idea of getting away scot-free.
    Ya don’t say….🤔😃😄😆😅

  2. Not to be outdone by Boris Johnson, Trump suspends the US Parliament after a listening to a Queen CD

      @Le Nom Im sorry. I know the people deserve better, but IDK why they dont demand it for themselves directly to the cheating, lying, bribing politicans… maybe when that happens, there will be no other option but to give in to the peoples demands.

    • @Le Nom I’m sorry, but canada is the most admired country in the world, justin trudeau is doing a good job

    • @Level Z You’re right. I didn’t mean he’s the weird one. Some running for election are.

  5. The sad news is at least 35% of Americans still support him. We need a better education.

    • It’s called, Education by meme.

    • You can never educate supremacist/Nazi/idiots/the dingaling states/the GRU Kremlin/JEW WILL NOT REPLACE US. MAGA arrest paedophile trump aka individual one and vote out paedophile trump 2020.

      It’s NOT 35%, infact most people support him. And that’s cause he’s a great president. Heck I wish we had Trump as our leader.
      We need him in Australia 🇦🇺

  6. He admits he will Pardon his Crime Buddies.

    Does he really think a f##king wall is going to save his A##!

    • @David M soooooooo no answer?

    • @Mark Bodder Study the statistics…Donald inherited the low unemployment rate. The unemployment rate started dropping in late 2010…….

    • @Kilgore Trout You frame a lie into a question. Fake news has taught you well but if you want answers, you’re not going to find it here. What you want is to be told what you want to hear and that’s what these Liars at NBC are paid to do. You run from the truth because they programmed you to. Oh well, you won’t get it. We live it by the border, and you live in a fantasy world of fake news, while we laugh at how easily you people are fooled by tv. It’s not your fault though, you’re just too naive and gullible so they keep that carrot dangling but you never do get it. Have fun with your opinions based on lies. It’s funny for us to read.👍

    Sarah Sanders went on fox and talked about all the miles of new wall that had been built. This administration lies just to keep the truth tellers busy.

      Huckabeast is the only one who can out LIE TRUMP AND METH HEAD BARBIE !!!

    • Imustbecomfused | August 29, 2019 at 9:20 PM | Reply

      yea, they dont even get order out of chaos right. lmao.

    • Hate to tell you but the wall is being built.

    • Imustbecomfused | August 30, 2019 at 9:45 AM | Reply

      @Mark Bodder and like the other countries who tried this wall thing, the wall will come down after another civil war. way to plan ahead for your kids futures… lol you all are more concerned about winning the race, war, facing the enemy, you forgot you all became that war, enemy. sad really…

  9. Are the Democrats alarmed enough to “DO SOMETHING” about Trump conspiring to have others break the law!?

    • @Maga Phone So u are saying God has DEMENTIA. Wonderful! Roflmao. U stupid white trash! Roflmao

    • @Imustbecomfused you mean the rnc, ok we know they work with the russians and have admitted it several times.

      @rs ss yes, countries leaders, deal business, with other countries, this is nothing new to me at least. rememebr that lil so called russian hack? you know how we know it wasnt a hack? the speed of which the data was transfered at, try to find what speed the so called HACK occurred at. then you will have to look up the fastest internet infrastructure we have currently. HUMANS, do not have Internet capability that fast. it was a DIRECT data transfer. Remember Seth Rich. I think he has something to do with it yea? yea.. the dude that stuck the USB drive into that DNC computer and DL’d that materail. IT was never a russian hack… you have to stick with the facts and take things into context. the media cant tell this to the people cause it wont fit hte WH narrative. I personally dont like being lied to. its an insult and a huge disrespet. I really dont feel, that Rep or Dem, is doing the right thing, they are not serving hte peopel or the nation, the constititution… thye are serving themselves and the corporations that give them tons of money for clearing the legal path for em… corruption by definition. regardless. I cant expect either side to do the right thing. BOTH cheat and hack the Elections, both lie to the people of america. why do you believe a bunch of liars who have proven for the last several decades, that they are not patriots, they are traitors who sold out america for $. good luck!

  10. There will be no pardons for Trump when the SDNY is finished with him.

      Most Americans agree that AHOTUS is totally unfit for the Office, is a lier, a crook, and a malevolent influence on the world order.To even think of enduring another four years of torture by this despicable POS is beyond dwelling on.

    • @Mind Freshener Sure just come up with a crime and facts, oh right the russian party called republicans don’t believe in facts.Courts do!

    • @max Rockatansky yes max we should have figured in the collusion aspect. russian help got him in.

    IT’s another impeachable offense. IT’s called abuse of power by a psychopath…. traitor-trump is openly corrupt, openly obstructive, and openly lawless…., a true full-blown psychopath.

  12. Trump voters insisit on trying to convince the rest of us of just how awesome the imbecile really is.

  13. I bet he seeks asylum in Russia after he gets outed either through impeachment, or losing. Honestly, i rather see him get out voted 112 to 1. That would be a more hilarious downfall. “Lets look at the vote count tonight guys, Trump is at 321 votes, and X Democrat is at 58 million three hundred and twenty four. Welp…. that wraps that up”.

  14. trump threatened to pardon himself. Law means nothing to him, now or ever

      Mark Bodder Whataboutism is just so 2017, Bodder. It means nothing to anyone unless, like you, they use their rear view mirror to navigate through life. What will happen to Rubes when Hillary, Bill, Obama, Soros, etc. die??? Rusty Hitler was installed by Putin and he’s momentarily at the top. He’s the conversation – not FDR or LBJ (do you know those initials?) so stop snowflakin’ and snifflin’ about Obama, find your balls and defend Chubbs like you’re at least 13 years old!

    • @Kevin Mcneil typical russian troll 1 post and gone.

    • @Mark Haddox trump has tried to destroy the intelligence organizations because he is guilty of many crimes. once he is gone and there is never a republican traitor as president again we will move forward. This is the silver lining Trump has destroyed the republican party !!!!

    • @Mark Bodder what about the sherriff who was a racist? Its ok we know you are just a piece of crap racist.

  15. It’s amazing how this psychotic criminal is running amok in our democracy like a bull in a china shop day in, day out, maliciously damaging our democratic process wherever and however he can. I’m amazed and disgusted that this charlatan isn’t in prison, a mental institution or a grave. I don’t expect anything out of his pathetic, sycophant Russian money-bought off GOP Senate, but, good Lord, surely there are enough responsible men and women in Congress who can get their heads together and rid our nation of this putrid curse on our nation.

    • Wado Waleli : Don’t forget Moscow Mitch, who made it his speciality to block any bill in Senate.

    • @John Flake We purposely warped immigration law decades ago to “allow” illegals in to work and turned away from the fact that employers who abided by the laws not to hire them were, in effect, penalized by the employers who did hire them and thus paid far less for their workers. That was patently unfair, but we allowed it to persist for three decades. I never said a border wall was okay or not okay under any President, but I do defer to the people who know what they’re talking about on the issue, and most of them say a continuous, full-length wall isn’t necessary, especially now when illegal crossings have dropped so much. In ares of high density, like at border towns, yes, I think walls serve a purpose, but I don’t think a continuous, coast-to-coast wall makes sense. Sorry if that coincide with your view.

    • @Myriam Ickx That’s true. It’s hard to know if it’s just McConnell’s natural inclination toward warping our democratic process to party priorities or the many millions of dollars he has received from Russian oligarchs that is motivating him. Hard to believe his blatant conflicts of interest haven’t been called out, especially in light of the fact that he is Senate leader. Corrupt as the day is long. Take care.

  16. It amazes me the amount of corruption the republicans have allowed Trump to get away with. And it’s been going on for 3 years now. If Obama would have done just one of the things Trump is guilty of there would be effigies of Obama hanging by his neck from trees all over the country.

    • Obama didn’t even need to do ONE of the things Trump has done for racists to burn hanged effigies of him anyway.

    • Obama turn the IRS into a political weapon.
      Obama sold guns to Mexican drug cartels.
      Obama meddled in the elections of Israel.
      Obama armed isis
      Obama is lying in the sand or you crossed it another New line in the Sand. No backbone
      Obama turn the FBI doj CIA all in the political weapons.
      Obama is responsible for Benghazi.
      Obama is responsible for all the refugees flooding into Europe.
      Obama is responsible for 9 trillion dollars of US debt.
      Should I go on????

    Trump’s a weirdo and so are his ignorant supporters. Sickos. Weirdo monster people. What a Godless mess they’ve made.

  18. Does the Buffoon ever work?
    The only thing he seems to be doing is complain, insult others and break the law time after time!

  19. I think all that orange make ups getting to his brain……Im not voting for trump.🇺🇸

    Trump has to go. Why doesn’t the US get rid of him? The World is watching. Do something to fix this.
