    He really hasn’t addressed much of anything EXCEPT how to Give the Rich BIG tax breaks!

      Bono Budju Biden is pro segregation
      Biden wrote that crime bill that targets people in inner cities
      Quid pro Joe actually did a Quid Pro Quo !
      Biden and his son made a few million in China and Ukraine ! ( but Trump is impeached and Biden can still run ?)
      All those are FACTS and they don’t care about your feelings !

      Bono Budju you’re just killing me with more fake bs. BBC ?
      They’re worse than CNN.
      Oh and PS. I saw it already !
      So now could you please overwhelm me with some facts ? Instead of acting like a politician and avoiding it ?

      @Eli Dicken yeah just like Trump!

  2. Trump went all the way to Dallas to hold an event/discussion on race issues and policing, but doesn’t invite the 3 black law enforcement officials who are responsible for law enforcement in that city.  Just think about that for a moment.

    Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is a devout racist. Racist to the point of pathological obsession.
    Trump is a man without a conscience. So there will be no guilt, no apologies, no shame, and certainly no sense of remorse coming from a racist narcissistic sociopath like Trump.

      @Pete Lind Democrats said preventing the coronavirus is racist! While Trump was making travel bans!

      REVELATION1:12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters.

    Trump knows exactly what he’s doing. I wish MSM wouldn’t talk about him for a week. Narcissist crave attention starve him of that.

      @RG Yes mister RG – Russian troll, whatever you say, whatever you say.

      Hard to say. The corona briefings seem to have cost him votes. The MAGA rallies also seem to have lost some steam. You’d think that the public would eventually get tired of his reality TV shtick.

    • Bridget Chineze-Asindi | June 14, 2020 at 7:31 AM | Reply

      Please stop talking about Trump and he will start talking about your show…..believe me, his such a character

    • @Kermit T. Frog the Corona briefing cost him votes.. his photo op cost him votes.. he losses votes very day and it’s not like he gains any new votes.. people are sick of him

    • Karen Schumer | June 14, 2020 at 6:37 PM | Reply

      But the MSM is showing us the truth about donald trump!!!!!

  6. Rev, sometimes silence speaks louder than words… What I mean is, Trump has made his position perfectly clear by his inaction.

      @Randy Couch George Floyd was no felon! It was later said that by his reaction when confronted about it, he probably did not know that the $20 bill was fake.

      @Mr. Kazu Premium Fantasy But it was federal mandated racist republicon policies that started the ball rolling for their failures!

    • @Karen Schumer he held up a pregnant woman at gunpoint! The police are doing thier jobs!

      @Karen Schumer you people always have an excuse in your back pocket. Is a republican running Atlanta right now!? I know you are aware of what just recently happened. Racism has nothing to do with it.

    Why bother, he doesn’t care, he never will, expect nothing……

      trump wants a riot so the attention is on him. He wants to say, “See, I told you they were violent.” pig for dominance.

    • ​@JoAnn Holmes That’s silly. You have TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome. Did you know there is a Wikipedia page about it?

    • Why bother? Evil persists when good men stand around and do nothing. Grow a pair.

    • @Mox Avenger Lol. I think I’ve spotted maybe two pro-Trump books on Amazon among the 20 or more anti-Trump books, with more sales and higher ratings. You are under Trump’s mind control. But don’t believe me. Watch this:

      Also read this:

      Trump is a Narcissistic Psychopath. I know. I spent 18 months with one, up close and personal. Total damages to me around $100K and PTSD, resulting in a rapid decline in my physical health. Trump is a dangerous man. He is a predator. Psychopathy is called “the disorder of social hiding” by Robert Hare, Ph.D., the developer of the PCL-R, a checklist – the international standard used in the assessment of Psychopathy. In other words, Psychopaths “hide in plain sight.” Read his two books, WITHOUT CONSCIENCE -THE PSYCHOPATHS AMONG US and SNAKES IN SUITS – WHEN PSYCHOPATHS GO TO WORK. Available at Amazon.

    • @Bliss I think you were looking for the former news media called CNN. It’s on the left.

  8. If trump said the sky is blue I would have to go out and check first.

    Until white men and women decide racism is a problem they need to fix it will never be fixed by anyone else!

    • phillip Morrison BS. Black people are their own worst enemy. If racism didn’t exist what excuse would they use for being the rejects of society. Until they accept responsibility for the wrongs they do there is no hope for them. They’ve had at least since the 60s to get it together and at this point a one way ticket back to the mother land might be in order.

      White people like being racist and do not care that it is a problem. That is the problem.

    • Karen Schumer You should be gagged! Shame Shame!!!!!

    • It’s not a white problem alone!!!! Whites are not killing their own kind with rapid succession! We don’t stand on the street corners and sell drugs!! Whites are not the ones in the highest unemployment rates in the country, or have the highest incarceration rate of any race!!! Stop making excuses and start making choices! It’s not what the white race is doing, it’s what the black race isn’t doing! Look at the successful black men and women. They are where they are today because they made a decision. You are today what yesterdays choices have made you.

    Who’s going to protect this president, after he’s “cast out” of the White House, and into the midst of America’s throng of righteous indignation? How will he feel when he is snubbed and ostracized – to a far greater degree than O.J. – everywhere he goes? What will happen to all of his hotels, casinos, and golf courses, when they are boycotted? Will he be faced with bankruptcy or, possibly, even imprisonment, when he can no longer hide behind the DOJ’s policy of not prosecuting a sitting president? One thing’s for sure – if he doesn’t flee the U.S., he will be erecting a wall – much bigger than the one temporarily put up around the White House – around Mar-A-Largo.

      You are deluding yourself if you believe it is going to be as easy to get rid of a corrupted person like Trump by just voting him out, what you need to understand is that the worst is yet to come, America is just at the beginning of it’s downfall.

    Donald J. Trump is the second President of the Confederacy. That’s who he is. Trump wants resurrect the Old South.

    • @Marcos Juarez I’m no democrat, don’t blame their failures on me. If blacks have the freedom to not do drugs, to work hard in school, to avoid gangs, to not steal, to be responsible, to not have illegitimate children that they can’t afford to raise, then they have the very same freedoms I do, and if they choose to squander their freedom and make bad choices that’s their problem not mine, and they’re not going to guilt me into thinking it is. They can stick their white privilege blame game nonsense up their racist behinds! People like you are the real racists in society.

      @Folk Aart Just look at how ignorant you are because you are perceived to believe from these far-right buffoons who they say about their racist beliefs.

      @Alexander Mutune Race divide, As far as I can tell he has all the traits of a racist.

  12. beautifully said, ty rev sharpton and ms wallace.

  13. Bunker Boy’s father isn’t around anymore to clean up his mess, we can’t expect him now to do anything but lie, spin conspiracy and distract.

  14. you are expecting a five year old to respect you? don’t be so stupid. you are not dealing with an adult, or even a human.

  15. He dislikes ppl who aren’t rich, his low IQ racist supporters are just pawns to him, he hates minorities in general but has profound contempt for blacks in particular.

  16. When did anyone make sense of ANYTHING Trump says???

  17. Trump has done nothing for anybody except his greedy Wall street friends

  18. Here’s an idea: stop relying on the party of that only cares about power and start relying on your strengths.

    Defund Donald Trump for the betterment of all humankind.

  20. Very nice that the host asked Rev. Al about his well being and how he is really doing.
