  1. He’s been a liar for a lot longer than that!

    Some lessons need to be learned the hard way.
    But, letting Trump into our White House is a bridge too far!
    Biden/Harris 2020

  3. Our country was doing all right before Donald Trump get in to the White House

    • Dan Dan Well, no it wasn’t – inadequate basic wage, inadequate housing, children going without meals, inadequate funding to schools, homelessness, run-down infrastructure. And that’s just the beginning….

    • I knew what was coming before he was elected! He was a cheating, lying con with no morals, empathy or concern
      for anyone but himself. I think quite a few of us could see what was coming and amazed at how stupid people
      are! It is unbelievable how ignorance is so rampant in this country!

    • @S A So how’s trump working out for ya? He fixed all that yet? Lol

    • @S A If any of that’s true, then Trumps had 4 years to fix all of that, no? Yeah,,,thought so. In effect hes done NOTHING for this country and it’s people except incite hate, racism, division, murder, violence, embarressment, and break law after law after law without any consequence. Other countries are asking HOW is this man still running the country and WHY isnt he in prison?

    • @S A USA had the best economic growth amongst it’s peers during the previous administration. GDP growth hasn’t achieved what Trump claimed it would, nor Romney before him. Arguably, deregulation had a large impact on economic growth, but the costs of that won’t be known for years. The younger folks will be paying. Regulations are put in place as a result of some detrimental action on people’s lives, property or the environment. They are not put in place to stifle or restrict business as the right would have me believe.

    • @Dave Schultz He’s all yours. Posted by Lil’ Tronny Dump, July 31, 2020

      The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns. 

      The “genius” who hides his college grades. 

      The “self-made man” who tax dodged a $413M “gift” from daddy’s real estate empire. 

      The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 yrs. 

      The “playboy” who pays for $ех. 

      The “Christian”, twice-divorced philanderer, who never asks God for forgiveness. 

      The “man of the Bible” who declined to name even one of his favorite Bible verses. 

      The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity. 

      The “patriot” who dodged the draft; family tradition: grandfather was kicked out of Bavaria for draft-dodging, father bribed a doctor tenant to exempt Donald from military service. 

      The “paragon of honesty” whose new immigration rules would have kept his and his senior anti-immigration adviser Stephen Miller’s grandparents out. 

      The “steadfast defender of our nation’s borders” who married an alleged undocumented immigrant and illegal worker who sponsored her parents into the country by “chain migration”. 

      The “staunch Republican” who donated to Democrats at all gov’t levels: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer.

      The “innocent man” who refuses to testify. 

      The “President” who takes no responsibility. 

      The “tough, strong man“ who wears makeup and hairspray but almost never a mask. If America reelects this guy, it deserves the dystopian future that follows. 

      Trump Translations “Many People have told me” = Voices in my head and fictional people have complimented me 

      “A lot of people don’t know” = I just learned something most people already knew 

      “Believe me” = I just lied “In fact” = I’m about to lie “He’s a great guy” = I will deny ever knowing this person after they begin to tell the truth about me 

      “MAGA” = Making my pockets fatter off the American tax payers 

      “Nobody knew” = Everyone knew except me 

      “Huge” = moderate to below average in size 

      “Loser” = someone who makes me feel inferior due to their talent or accomplishments 

      “Policy Briefing” = Turning on Fox News 

      “Liar” = Someone telling the truth about me 

      “Fake News” = Real news “If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. I mean, it’s no good. So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better.” ― 

      The Donald @ Larry King Live, October 1999 

      “A friend of mine was in Scotland recently. He got very, very sick. They took him by ambulance and he was there for four days. He was really in trouble, and they released him and he said, ‘Where do I pay?’ And they said, ‘There’s no charge.’ Not only that, he said it was like great doctors, great care. I mean we could have a great system in this country.” ― The Donald @ The David Letterman Show, January 2015 

      “We’re going to have insurance for everybody. We’re going to have a healthcare that is far less expensive and far better.” ― The Donald @ interview with The Washington Post, January 2017 

      “Hillary’s always surrounded herself with very good people, I think Hillary would do a good job [as president].” [praising Hillary Clinton as a Democratic presidential candidate who could make a good deal with Iran.] ― The Donald @ interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, September 2007 

      “I know [Hillary Clinton] and she’d make a good president or good vice president.” [speaking of the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries] ― The Donald @ “Trumped!”, a syndicated radio feature, 2008 “

      Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman. I am biased because I have known her for years. I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard. And I think, again, she’s given an agenda, it is not all of her, but I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job [since joining the Obama administration as Secretary of State]. I like her.” ― The Donald @ interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, March 2012 

      “I know [Hillary Clinton] very well, and I know her husband very well, and I like them both. They are just really terrific people. I like them both very much. But I think you’ll be looking at the record of Hillary Clinton. And how did she do as secretary of state? Probably above and beyond everybody else and everything else.” [speaking after the 2012 Benghazi attack] ― The Donald @ interview with NBC News, August 2013 

      “I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy right. I mean, what’s going on [in that party] is just nuts.” ― The Donald @ interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press”, October 1999

      “In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat. I’ve been around a long time. And it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn’t be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats. …we’ve had some pretty bad disaster[s] under the Republicans.” ― The Donald @ interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, March 2004 

      “I don’t want to pivot… If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.” ― The Donald @ interview with Wisconsin television station WKBT, August 2016 

      “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s, like, incredible.” ― The Donald @ campaign rally in Iowa, January 2016 

      “I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular [i.e. cabinet] positions I just don’t want a poor person.” ― The Donald @ rally in Iowa, June 2017 

      “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.” ― The Donald @ Playboy, March 1990 “Let our politicians give back our police department’s power to keep us safe. Unshackle them from the constant chant of ‘police brutality’…” ― The Donald @ “Bring Back the Death Penalty. Bring Back Our Police!”, a newspaper ad, May 1989 

      “The point is that you can’t be too greedy.” ― The Donald @ “The Art of the Deal”, 1987 “It’s amazing, I can’t even believe it. I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world, it is a dangerous world out there. It’s like Vietnam, sort of. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” [speaking of having $ex and referring to women’s geпitals as “potential landmines”.] ― The Donald @ interview on The Howard Stern Show, November 1997 

      “Vagiпa is expensive.” ― The Donald @ his second wedding, as retold on The Howard Stern Show, 1997 “Wow! Just think — in a couple of years I’ll be dating you.” [to two 14-year-old girls in 1992, after asking the girls how old they were. The girls were part of a youth choir performing a carol concert outside Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel.] ― The Donald @ Chicago Tribune, 

      December 1992 “Leadership: Whatever happens, you’re responsible. If it doesn’t happen, you’re responsible.” ― The Donald @ Twitter, November 2013 “You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.” ― The Donald @ “The Art of the Deal”, 1987

    • @Doobie Jones , I dont like McLame, never did. You could say anything about him at anytime and I would either agree with you or just ignore you. Im really that way when it comes to him, he didn’t fool me.

      Trump is so far ahead of these leftist Marxist democrats its just hilarious to watch it play out. You can say he is worthless all you like but the fact is he has been very effective in turning a system of the 1 world order put in play by G. Bush Sr. & then advanced by every other President their after. Your a fool if you actually believe that a Virus with a less than .026% morbidity rate is cause to shut down the Worlds Economy. A population approaching 8 Billion people and the ones the virus is killing off are those who are already at deaths bed! And it hasn’t hit 1 million deaths to date!
      What makes the world go round? MONEY! Who shut the world down? The ones in charge of all the Money! The World Banking Organization & The Central Bank. Why are Democrat Governed States the ones that are opposed to Reopening up the economy?
      Why does the msm bash Trump for trying to restart the economy and save thousands of small business’s in doing it?
      Why does the msm want to report that thousands of people are out of work because of Trump & refuse to say its the VIRUS that was the cause?
      What president signed executive order 4310 that made political Propaganda legal for news agencies to publish? = B. H. Obama is your man.

      Toothless, once he goes to prison and becomes someone’s b1tch

  7. Bill barr must not love America or just loves trump more than the country’s laws

  8. Why doesn’t the constant corruption disqualify Trump for reelection?

    • @Jim P I did and I saw Biden.

    • @Kelly Owens Calm down.Rump in the White House will not harm his “brand” in the least.BUT,You right wing lunatics better get a fund going

    • Nikki Arko EXACTAS! How is it that He breaks the law with no reprimand???

    • Kelly Owens A SO CALLED billionaire

    • @johnnyd63 + Losing $500,000,000 per 4 year term is a foregone conclusion. Being in the real estate-hospitality business & eliminating 1/2 the market is a hard dollar to make. To prove this simple fact . . . simply ask yourself if you’d ever purchase a condo, spend the night in a hotel, or play a round of golf at a Trump branded property? It’s simple supply & demand. The $Billion President Trump will lose by serving 2 full terms, as looks likely, is a conservative figure for the financial loses he will suffer had he never entered the fractious waters of national electoral politics. Facts don’t care about idiotic opinions.

    I’m extremely curious to find out what Putin has on trump!?

  10. the chant goes…
    “trump lies, while people die”

  11. Only a broken country allows a con artist with a broken mind to gain power.

    If Mango Mussolini wins, HE will start poisoning his enemies and gaslighting about it with the approval of his criminal admin.

  13. “Law & Order” President t commits a felony crime to destroy the integrity of elections in broad daylight.
    AG Barr: I got your back, bro
    GOP response: 🦗 🦗

  14. The US is the only wealthy country in the world where the life expectancy is declining.

    The man has no respect for you. History will remember this period as a mistake voting for a wannabee tv personality. Remove this dictator.

  16. Send someone in to take those S.O.B’s out of The People’s House. Don’t wait for election day. Just grab a few boxes of cuffs and GO!


  18. The scary part is his base doesn’t care he’s a liar – they love everything about him.

  19. In 2016 Trump said, “Real power is — fear.” So remember… “When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

  20. Trump had been lying his whole life, why would he be any different because he’s president?
