  1. Some of these Senate Republicans need to go….for all the obvious reasons.

  2. The faces of the so called GOP are all running for the hills now that the widespread corruption is being exposed! LOL

    • @David Rodgers Dude you haven’t been watching enough of it are you all afraid of the truth? Face it this president is completely destroying this country and the so called Right Wing sits by and does nothing to check this corrupt administration, open your eyes! Or is it that you don’t want to admit the truth

    • Anyone who does not realize (R) leaders only stand upright for the 1% must be living a Trumpster fantasy that truth has no meaning zero!

    • John Paul … why? Why vote for a party that fabricated and planted evidence (the Steel dossier) on a sitting president, and is now trying to impeach that president for investigating a crime (which, ironically, is exactly what the democrats say is a crime: Biden called _and bragged about_ blackmailing the president of Ukraine to STOP an investigation of his son Hunter or all aid would be pulled)

      The democrats have literally become Orwellian: they consider it a crime to investigate a crime

    • Guess they’re sick of sucking ACDJT off.

    He heard the KKK was looking for a new grand dragon.

    • @Dark Knight Ok Chuck Schumer good democrat repeat something gone viral don’t think for yourself!

    • Marcellino Sananto, Congressman King has done more for Civil rights and the African American community than you could ever dream of doing. It is disrespectful to tarnish the people who actually fights for people’s rights. Just like how Senator Harris created a false narrative that Biden was a racist when Biden was one of the leading people at the time fighting for the African American community. Just because you disagree with someone does not mean they are racist.

    Since the Democrats control Congress King knows he has lost power and is useless. Buh, bye! Good riddance.

    • 🤣

      @David Rodgers Not much chance of that. Not in NY and not at this time.

    • @BonerMaroner I spent one year in Iraq (operation Iraqi freedom). I decided we don’t need that low IQ chauvinistic ideology here. I shot radical Muslims over there. I’m beginning to think I see some here in Congress.

    • @David Rodgers I don’t know what to tell you other than you made a lot of profit for the fossil fuel industry and I am sure they are grateful for your contribution.

  5. Thwy should ALL RETIRE! CROOKS

  6. Good riddance, another old and decrepit swamp creature is leaving the cesspool. No one needs to stay in Congress more than 12 years – TERM LIMITS anyone?!?

  7. He’s a coward

  8. The rats are jumping ship.

  9. The whole point of spending all that money and effort to stay in the House is _power._ Knowing he will be in the minority if re-elected kind of takes away the desire to take the gig. He sees nothing ahead but a series of votes he doesn’t want to publicly take, and a reputation tainted by supporting an obviously unfit President.

  10. Iron Maiden… run to the hills, run for your lives! Ahhh memories coming back to life!

    Thank goodness, this guy should have never been there in the first place.

  12. yeah, they already know the truth is going to come out and they see the wave coming for them!

  13. Yea, there’s higher paying jobs out there, and with my connections I can probably double the going rate; or I can just write a book.

  14. Having to spend four days a week commuting, how did he ever survive? Poor guy.

  15. Of course 😁, it’s not because they know that they’re going to loose thanx to Trump 😁

    • Tessmage Tessera | November 11, 2019 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      Fact is, the Republicans have lost every important election since Trump took office. Allegiance to Trump is killing the Republican party.

  16. That’s the best news in years. King was awful.

  17. “At an end your rule is, and not short enough it was!”
    – Yoda

  18. Glad to hear he’s retiring. Another Gangster rides off into the sunset with the best Benefits for LIFE my money can buy ? POS !

  19. they are getting out so when the house of cards come crashing down they can say ” we had nothing to do with it”

  20. He heard the KKK needs a new Grandmaster…
