  1. DeVos and Chao resigned so they don’t have to invoke the 25th Amendment.

    Resignation now is nothing more than rats leaving a sinking ship!

  3. Removed… Not Resigned!!

    • Removed before he can pardon every crook, thug and deviant, otherwise they will simply regroup and come at us again. F’ing Pelosi and Schumer have been beyond useless in their magical thinking that somehow the Republicans will act with honor and decency when they are just power grubbing thugs.

    • …nah he not try to rush to jail

    • @Mainely I want to make sure that psychopath or any other psycho ever runs OUR country again.

    • Katherine Raven | January 8, 2021 at 4:56 PM | Reply

      removed !!!

  4. Correct. Resigning now is simply taking the safe road out,

  5. He needs to be removed… should have been when he was impeached the first time.

    • Susan Collins has assured me that he has certainly learned his lesson. I told her the lesson he learned is that you lack the spine to do your job and he will become worse.

    • @Mainely Oh he learned something alright.. Learned that there were not consequences for his actions.

    • Unfortunately, too many voters in too many states didn’t care that their Senators, such as McConnell, Collins, Cronyn, etc., did not convict and remove Trump. Or they were happy Trump escaped removal. In the end, we can only blame the fools or the malevolent who continue to vote for Republicans!!

    • Imagine you’re a grandchild of this President and you’re learning in history class about all the horrible things your Grandpa did as president. God what a horrible thing to do to a child but nevertheless is a necessary examination of the facts in history. How do you as a kid look at your Grandpa again. I’m a mom and I can’t help thinking about stuff like this.

  6. I call on the President, RESIGN TODAY SIR!

      Dude…AFTER a woman was shot (who later died) and dozens of Capitol Police injured, some seriously (one ultimately fatally), he got in front of the cameras and railed about how he won by a landslide and the election was stolen from him. He declared his love for these rioters who caused all this mayhem, who carried and waved a confederate flag, the flag flown by those who fired on those who flew the U.S. flag, who killed those who bore the U.S. flag. He later tweeted that this is what happens when elections are stolen by massive fraud, as if to say oh well! This PoS will NEVER have the dignity or honor and respect enough to the office of POTUS to resign…he’ll sooner urinate all over the White House to mark his territory and claim it as his even as he’s carried out.

      why the SIR??
      Resign you CRIMINAL you should say!

    • Why csll him Sir..?? Does not deserve it…made his own evil choices..along with the blind followers..

    • @DevaDolly I’m not so positive of that now with how strained their relationship has become recently.

  7. Middle of next week! What’s wrong with the weekend?
    Get on with.

  8. They saw Trump’s actions over the past four years and they are shocked?

  9. He’s impaired,take the keys from him now,not after he wrecks every thing in his reach.Today may already be too late,why are we still waiting for Congress to act?Today not tomorrow or next week,Today….

    Stop sleeping on this guy😡. Remove him expeditiously!

  11. Margaret Nicol | January 8, 2021 at 9:59 AM | Reply

    Ooops – he’s done – I’m out of here before they catch me too!!!

  12. I DON’T THINK trump would have CARED if pence had been KILLED!!! He wouldn’t break the law for him!!!

  13. Trump should be charged with Treason and become ‘A man without a Country.’

    • Could actually happen.
      National security means he an’t just go to jail, at minimum we’re talking about a quonset hut in the middle of nowhere.
      tRump won’t be able to trade what he’s learned as Presid…what am I saying, if it didn’t have something to do with a temporary monetary gain…tRump won’t remember SFA…

    • @J Barnhart
      Protective Custody. He better get to like Ramen and a side of bug juice.

    • Steve Jakubowski | January 8, 2021 at 1:00 PM | Reply

      @inter modus nope his failures are his and those that voted for him

    • @Steve Jakubowski I totally disagree. The world did not suddenly begin in 2016. There have been generations of Americans with heads in the sand.
      The quest for positivity has cost us our soul as a country, and it happened long before you could vote for Donald (lame)Duck.
      The Desire to assign blame, and duck guilt, dodge “negativity” has led us here.

      In other words;
      *I Stand by My Original Statement.*

      I have been thinking about that event
      The problem I see is that is hard to effectively isolate anyone with all the media options out there
      And plenty of bad actors to hook him up or give him refuge. Technology is it great until it’s not
      I spent 22 years with a dedicated wonderful team making sure it worked.

  14. devos and chao too scared to vote either way on 25th, they are completely pathetic

    • Sickos … first thought comes to mind. It shows in their character.
      Burn the ship & stepped in the life boat of immense wealth.

      It’s disturbing. Then again most people will enjoy Netflix, bookface, or taking care of family this evening, giving care to a loved one.

      Again …. I know family members well of these two women who “resigned.”
      These two women have been gifted silver spoons, and they both know it down deep.

      The old saying shocked not surprised fits the situation

    • Totally agree. If any of the temporary appointments were to vote against him it would be easier them. Leaving the administration now is NOT taking the high ground.

    • I meant easier to fire them

    “doubly impeached donald trump” sounds like something that would get in his head. i like that holmes… i like that…

  16. He couldn’t shed a tear if he had to. He is empty inside.

    • You’re exactly right as he has no heart or compassion for anyone other than himself. To be understanding and have love you have to have a heart, Trump has no heart!

    • Ann Mullins
      Well said you…. a black hole.. incapable of being human…!🇺🇸

  17. resistance is futile | January 8, 2021 at 10:30 AM | Reply

    They lied and people died. Eternal shame on all of them.

    • Trump and all the people on Wednesday, (Trump Jr, Eric Trump, Giuliani), that told the people to march to the Capitol should be indicted. They caused the death of people that did not have to happen.

  18. Resigning in the last two weeks is cowardice.

  19. Paid vacation for the Republicans that quit I should’ve known

  20. All these people “resigning in protest” are not fooling anyone! They’re just trying to avoid possible legal charges and/or prison time!
