  1. Trump running this country is like giving a kid the keys to a Corvette and hearing him say “this is the fastest this car has ever gone” right before he drives the car off a cliff. Then blaming the crash on the previous owner of the car.

      vIolent America? YOU ANTIFA HAVENT SEEN ANY VIOLENCE. YET. just rig that election and then you are going to live under truck bombs, and snipers preying on your kids. JUST WAIT

      @mike boultinghouse Yawn. Trump will declare any election rigged that he does not win, & any election honest that he does, even if he has to baselessly claim vote-by-mail is corrupt (even though he & his admin do it) & get foreign interfer-ence to “win”. Same as he loves to call everything “fake news” that doesn’t flatter him, even when it’s video of him saying or doing that very thing.

      The images he is using in the ads of rioters breaking windows, fires, tear gassing, etc, are from HIS OWN administration. If those are bad, then he did not protect us from them. And “antifa” is just a short form of “anti-fascist”. Are you that fond of fascism that you need to rail against anyone who fights it? Then you are railing against the US soldiers who fought Nazis and fascists in WWII. Nice.

      @R Thomas President Obama left us with a military that didn’t have enough pilots to fly their airplanes and a trade deficit that was soon to bankrupt our country. Obama did not do us any favors, he moved our industry overseas and we still don’t manufactures in our country as a result. Trump brought back most industry to our country.

    • Jeffrey Dyrek plus Obama is a black man which is the real reason you hate him now leave me alone

      @mike boultinghouse and your plan will fail. Democracy will prevail. Authoritarianism (what Trump praises, he is obedient to Vladimir Putin , didnt reprimand him AT ALL for the bounties on OUR TROOPS and called Kim Jung Un a “good guy” even though he slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocents….) ^^^^^^^^^^^will not be tolerated. I, along with hundreds of thousands, nay millions of other firearm bearing people in the USA, will protect the constitution of the United States at all costs. No fascists or Nazis or anyone of the sort will ever be recognized, nor will racists. The military is already strategizing a plan to remove the fool from office if he overstays his term! The election is going to happen no matter what! Only the democrat controlled Congress is able to change that! aha aha ahahahahhahahahahahaha!!!!

    America is

    23 in education.
    37 in healthcare.
    52 in gender equality.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together……

  3. Hope you don’t have a landlord who’s read Art of the Deal

    • Kennedy Suggs i agree , that is what i said . I am a landlord and needs the money to eat and pay the bank.

    • Tessmage Tessera | August 3, 2020 at 12:31 AM | Reply

      @mt The bank should waive your mortgage payments until after the crisis is over. Note that I didn’t say they would — I said they _should._

    • Kennedy Suggs | August 3, 2020 at 2:13 AM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera Bur what about the money landlords need to get by day by day? Some people are using rental houses to pay for their retirement, it become a issue. The government won’t be able to pay for everyone’s rent from March/April till whenever COVID-19 is dealt with. The governments hold on rental payments even meant people who could pay rent didn’t have too. All over the wealthily parts of New York there and people squatting in rentals in those areas. My question is if the government can’t pay for it, will the people renting the houses be responsible for past due payments? Or will the landlords be told tough luck and have to take it to court? It’s a hardship for both landlords and the people renting.

      Trump’s *Exact* statement:
      Transcript From NBC News:

      “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do *something like that* by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

      SCIENCE had already been Working on *Internal Virus Cleanser* to include UV light when he asked this.

    I’ve just been made aware of the effect on Voters! No address-No vote!!

      I didn’t stutter.
      “Five states currently conduct all elections entirely by mail: Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Utah.”

      @Kathleen R cannot read her own link….

      “…this *does not preclude in-person voting* opportunities on and/or before Election Day.”

      She also st…st…stutters

    • @BLM MARXISTS SUKASS doesn’t understand the meaning of the word ENTIRELY. —- If you want to take your mail-in ballot down to the elections office and deliver it to them my hand you’re welcome to do it.

    • BLM MARXISTS SUKASS | August 4, 2020 at 12:52 AM | Reply

      @Kathleen R doesn’t understand the word *Preclude.*
      For that matter… Neither does Wendy Underhill, the author of the provided NCSL link.
      An action CANNOT BE both *Entire* as well as *Not Precluded.*
      DEFINITION: Preclude = *Prevent* from happening.
      DEFINITION: Entirely = Completely / Solely (as in: nothing else exists)

      Mail-in voting *Does NOT Preclude* in-person ballot box voting. THEREFORE: Vote-by-mail *IS NOT “ENTIRE.”*

      Kathleen should write for the NCSL. With her lack of knowledge, (i.e. stupidity) she will fit right in.

  9. Velshi and Pressley have the same hair dresser.

  11. Aaron Peters | August 2, 2020 at 5:20 PM | Reply

    Someone has said: NO ADDRESS-NO VOTE. is that true?

    • I don’t think that is possible. Very few places in the u.s. allow very little mail in voting. Only if mail in voting became mandatory(not going to happen soon), then there could be a conflict. There would have to be mailboxes given to homeless people (which there should already be,btw). You can’t do anything hardly without an address, including filing for disability insurance. That’s just another battle for these people.

    • @lily boone 👄It is possible and does happen!! Again, check with your local registrar of voters!!!

    • @lily boone It’s the law that all citizens be afforded the opportunity to vote, should they so desire (not followed in so many ways). Again, the problem is logistics. Most homeless people aren’t the ones that you >>see<< under bridges or on corners.

    • @John T I agree. I think I might have been mistaken? Idk

    • @lily boone Happens to us all. What’s unique and exceptional is being able to admit it.

  12. Sounds like an impasse and more riots into the election unless something is done soon.

  13. Ayanna is so beautiful and confident. She has such an important voice. I love her.

  14. There is a wealth of smart, talented women for Joe Biden to choose from. We will make history with the first woman V.P. and 8 years from now the first woman president. It is a matter of fairness and taking advantage of all our talent available.

      C’mon pal, do not go that far. Firstly the US must get rid of orange moron. It won’t be easy.

      @Adam Świtlak – Im a psychologist in Europe and you are all underestimating Trump. Not underestimating his intelligence, but his ability to commit atrocities. The ONLY thing stopping him have his supporters release poison gas in Democrat neighborhoods on election day to stop you voting is OTHER PEOPLE in his administration that wont go along with it… Do you trust those people are there..???

    • Serendipity Shop | August 3, 2020 at 6:40 AM | Reply

      Maybe 4 years from now. Biden’s pretty old.

    • DATING HARLEY QUINN are psychology diplomas in “Europe” complementary with every box of cereal? I live in Europe btw. There are different countries here. Which one are you from? And at what university did you graduate?

    • John Deininger | August 3, 2020 at 2:58 PM | Reply

      @DATING HARLEY QUINN I don’t know that people are underestimating his “will to power”. They are questioning his strategy and tactics, however, which continue to fail miserably and his approval ratings show it.

      “If he can, he will” is the consensus amongst those not lost to the cult of Trump.

  15. We need more people like Ali Velshi in the media and less of the never trump republicans. Ali Velshi is way more in line with the American people than Steve Schmidt.

  17. Republican want people to be homeless so they can’t vote, then die from covid because there are too many eaters

    Voter suppression by eviction. USA be aware what GOP are actually up too. Poorer families mostly people of colour are been disenfranchised. This is deliberate tactic by GOP.

    Gorgeous, brilliant woman. She looks like one of the Dora Milaje female warriors from the movie “Black Panther,” fierce.

  20. Trump and his business partners wants to evict Americans and reclaim their homes.
