  1. “I know more about Isis than the generals do.” OCT 16, 2016. – President Shitstain –

    Bunker Boy has killed 114,000 Americans (with no war) and counting.

      The CIA invented ISIS to take out the Russians, no War exists where America isn’t involved for oil & the ongoing proxy Wars with Russia. ISIS are active in Kenya, they are based in Saudi – friends of America- the hypocrisy of America is legendary. Especially when America is a third world country who kills more of its own citizens than anywhere else. The paranoia about socialism & ISIS is distracting you from the internal chaos & lack of human rights best sort those out before ya come preaching democracy & freedom to others

      @Mainely I think you are absolutly correct! he is going to call on his armed followers and Faux News and Twitter will be his megaphones and i totally in favor of the first amendment but i think Twitter needs to ban Trump for his hateful antics and disinformation, and that way only Faux News and the people calling to overthrough the US govertnmment will be tried for TREASON!

  3. correct- there is no bottom- just one vicious vortex: a spinning black hole.

      @Luc Préfontaine Go on continue to teach us how Lincoln considered the confederacy a foreign nation.. You are Dunning Kruger in action

    • Luc Préfontaine | June 13, 2020 at 9:44 AM | Reply

      @Jacob Craven You know many countries that would recognize a secessionist region as a country by itself ?
      I don’t.
      To regain control of that territory there’s no other option than occupation.
      Or you believe in Peter Pan and the ticking croc.
      How do you disarm the opponent ?
      How do you restore some form of civilian life ?
      You compare things that can’t be compared.
      There was a war implicating two armies.
      Not soldiers facing civilians.
      How much dumber can you get ? 😬

      @Luc Préfontaine You seem to not even know the confederacy was never a foreign nation, Sherman’s army which burnt down Atlanta where US citizens lived would disagree about no civilians being involved. Now Let’s go very slow, the south was never recognized as being a foreign nation nor was it ever considered foreign soil, legally or otherwise. You are seriously a case study in The Dunning Kruger Effect, trying to patch something together from movies you have seen. LMAO

    • @Luc Préfontaine <-- Ignorant on almost every level. So dumb he does not even know it.

  5. The only message Americans want to hear from the orange fascist-in-chief is, ‘I resign!’

    • @Jim Hultenius that white supremacist police chief that white supremacist Republican mayor and that white supremacist Republican governor in Minnesota man. Yeah definitely this thing is on Trump.

    • You all want to know something funny? Democrat leadership fallows what Trump dose . He went to a church for a photo with a bible . Two days later democrat leadership is doing a photo with Africa clothing. Democrats are hypocrite racist. Fight for freedom against the democrats.

      Warm Violet like Trump said at the onset of the Coronavirus “We have it under control “ and “it’s only one case from China “ and “1 day it’s 15 cases and then it’s zero it’s like a miracle “= TRUMP BLATANTLY LIES TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE = Trumps 110000+ American death 💀 MIRACLE WTH! Trump also said “Stock Market is still strong “= use your brain 🧠 Trump tried to save the economy and Stock Market first and foremost instead of Americans health first and foremost instead of Americans health first and foremost = MONEY 💰 = Trump canceled the USA 🇺🇸 Pandemic Team in 2018= 2020 Pandemic = 110000+ American deaths = AMERICANS DESERVE TRUMP YES WE DO = It might be ok for you that the Evil President lies to us during a Pandemic BUT NOT TO ME! Trump spending Billions on a Wall but it’s ok for Trump to marry 2 yes 2 European wives and bring their families over to America = Evil chain immigration Hypocrites WTH= Trump said “Our country is full “ liar plenty of room in Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, Idaho and Alaska WTH please refer back to Trump’s European immigrants! Trump calls a True American war hero “Not a war hero because he was captured “ coming from a 5 time draft dodger “= Unpatriotic Bully Coward yes like any Trump would actually fight for America bless your heart ❤️ btw my brother, father and father in law all served in the USA 🇺🇸 military!
      Go MAGA
      America #1 Coronavirus cases and deaths world 🌎 leaders= Trump leadership = AMERICANS DESERVE TRUMP! Why Trump gives the super rich (himself) the largest and permanent tax breaks and some chump change to sucker people all the while driving up our National Deficit another 2trillion = Conservative and fiscally responsible NOT AND GUESS WHO’S MAKING MONEY OFF THE DEFICIT INTEREST YES THE SUPER RICH= IGNORANT AMERICANS DESERVE TRUMP! So fitting that America has a Pompous Arrogant Selfish Spoiled Rotten American Brat for President and proof that selfish ignorant people elect selfish ignorant leaders like Trump = DESERVES TRUMP!

  8. Military strength should never be flexed against the American people.

      Give it up, loser! Your racist ways are over. BLM protests are now supported by 3/4 of America! Instead of starting a race war, you united all of America against turds like you!

      blas4me50, after Obama’s election the racists and bigots came out from under their rocks. Trump used the “birther” hoax and his initial public announcement calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists, and calling for a Muslim ban, to build a following of racism and bigotry into a cult of hate. Truth, facts, logic and reason mean nothing compared to the pronouncements of Trump. Don’t believe your own eyes and ears, just what I say.

      Mr. Stone, Trump stiffed contractors, workers, suppliers and investors. I know people who dealt with Trump, he was sued 4,200 times for nonpayment. His business philosophy was agree to a price, and then refuse to pay at the end of the job, if they sued he got months of extra time, if they settled, he pocketed the difference, if they went bankrupt he didn’t pay and kept the money. Most of his money came from stealing from investors, stuffing contractors and suppliers and working people, and laundering money for the Russians. So your admiration is for someone who robbed working people.

    • John DiGiacomo – so did he Stiff you? NY is full of ripoff contractors that do shoddy work. Would you pay for poor service or work? The mop in NY is a bunch of thugs that control the unions they belong in jail. Have a nice weekend I will for sure 😀 Trump will be re-elected in 2020 👍🇺🇸

    • John DiGiacomo | June 13, 2020 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      No Mr. Stone, I didn’t “stiff” me, he attempted to stiff a very good friend, whose lawyers were a LOT better than his. The topic came up in my shop one day with a young man who almost lost his job approving a loan for Trump. His supervisor quashed the loan. My friend then told the story and explained Trump’s philosophy. The difference is my friend owned the three largest companies in his field, and his lawyers out together the legal work for the World Trade Center. Regarding “shoddy work” you obviously don’t work in New York, because their standards for tradesmen are the highest in the country. I also met an acquaintance who had worked for Trump in an associate’s shop, he described Trump as having the attention down of a give year old with ADD. I have other friends who have stories, but these are the ones that are pertinent. As a qualifier, my friend’s companies had contracts with every level of government, from local municipalities to federal research labs, saving pennies weren’t worth it.

    • John DiGiacomo – well if you want to vote for senile Joe Biden and get four more years of Obama /Biden have add it. The eight years of Obama Biden were a disaster for most people. The past three plus years have been great under President Trump. His economic policies have been great for the country. As a conservative Democrat I plan to vote for him again so do most of my Democratic friends.

    trump calls Mattis “the most over-rated general in the world”. This is an outrageous unremarkable assessment from a cowardly draft dodger who through brazen grift avoided serving in the Vietnam war not once but five separate times now posturing as Commander in Chief imposing military force on american protesters and playing golf on Memorial Day while those in the front line of ‘combat’ against the pandemic crisis bravely forge on risking their lives.

      He has senile dementia…

    • @William Wilson IMO.
      He knows exactly what he’s been doing for a long time now.
      He suffers from virulent racism, remember the central park 5, countless rental bias lawsuits, birtherism, fine people on both sides, ok sign throwing, shithole countries, vilifying immigrants and so many other white supremacy ‘whistles’ that it is hard to keep track of it all.
      This is the defining character trait of our president and what appeals to his base and why he won’t condemn racism.
      2 days ago he said Lincoln’s legacy was questionable, what do you think that meant?
      The only thing that rivals his racism is his greed and corruption.
      It’s not a trait we want to see in our president, we can not be blind to it or acquiesce.
      Elections have consequences, VOTE!
