    The “Grand Old Party” should be renamed DCP, “Disgraceful Cowardly Party.” Where is Republican outrage? I hear nothing but crickets.

      @Rich Kotarba Are you getting money from George Soros? Stupid liberal troll, why don’t you go back to your country?

    • GOP = Geriatric Ole Perverts. Think they changed their name in 2016, could have been earlier though.

    • @leminity splckits So… rioters who destroy stores = bad? Responding by gassing and attacking people using the 1st Amendment rights = good? That’s what those innocent people get, own the libs by committing war crimes, Trump, his base is all about it! The fact you’re okay with innocent people being hurt just because they don’t share your views, mirrors a lot of what’s going on in this situation. You won’t realize it though, and you’ll probably blindly vote for someone who stomped on your 1st amendment rights, too. I’d say it’s funny that you’re that dumb, but at this point it’s reaching dangerous levels.

    • Ryan Christy Wrong.. it was the Democrats that cost your friend life. Get your facts straight.

    • Ryan Christy | June 4, 2020 at 5:32 PM | Reply

      @Xerdar36 What do you know about my friend? You weren’t there when he called me from his death bed having his final talk about resenting Trump. You don’t have to live with the fact that he died because he listened to the president. How would YOU feel if the president you voted for put someone you care about in harms way?

    • Ryan Christy | June 4, 2020 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      @Xerdar36 In April my friend read Trump’s tweets about encouraging protests against the stay at home orders in Michigan and he went to protest. Later on he caught Covid 19 from one of the protests because he told me he didn’t wear a mask and was close to other protestors. I had to spend our final conversation on my phone listening to him resent Trump and made me promise to not vote for him again.

    • Context …. prove your point… your friend died because he listened to the president, I call baloney. your friends first name.. you’re just making up a story…

      Ryan. Harms way you say… Really. if he was defending his country and he died and what he believed in.. I would honor your friend and support his president. If your friend gave up his life for the president you should feel honored. But I guess we’ll never know since you didn’t State his or her name.

      Sounds like you’re suffering from TDS…. I still stand by my statement it was probably the Democrats that cost your friends life…

    • Ryan Christy | June 4, 2020 at 7:02 PM | Reply

      @Xerdar36 His name was Isaac and you expext me to honor a president that put hundreds of his own supporters at risk of catching Covid 19? Do you really think Trump cares about his dead supporters? You don’t know what its like to admire someone then realize that person doesn’t care about you and tosses you aside like a broken tool.

    • Yeah, big man huh attacking an unarmed unsuspecting journalist while the little creep had back up. That little creep should be fired!

    • @judy weeks trust me he’s gotten a promotion just for that .. only way that getting fired is if trump uses him as a scapegoat

    He doesn’t deserve another day in office.

    I hope they find out who the police officer’s were who attack the Australian reporter’s. That was disgusting on all levels.

    • Really hope we find out who ordered all that to happen. Once we find him, we should probably put him in jail for a pretty long period of time. Possibly life. Looks a lot like a war crime to me to say he’ll dominate the battle space, then gas everyone for a photo.

      He makes mockery of church , bible and Humanity.
      I have no other word to describe him apart from “Devil ”
      And i wouldn’t change my mind even if they pay me to do so .
      I have seen enough with is behaviour which make me come to my conclusion that is only aim is distruction
      And Evil towards most of Humanity and other countries and Race .
      Everyone is entitled to his and her opinions my opinion is that he his Lucifer in a human body.

      The pastor at the church was teargased and she had to run away from the oncoming line of police along with thousands of other peaceful protesters.
      It’s hard to believe that it’s happening in the US by a US PRESIDENT who wants the general public to vote him into office a second time.

    Insanity has overcome this man’s ability to cope with our constitution. Are their any sane medical people near him? Test him and treat him. For America.

    • Exactly! I mean how bizarre does he have to act before someone stands up and gets him sectioned to a mental home, the guy is ill and he is flushing your country down the toilet.

    • December Agents | June 4, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      Remember, he never became president because he wanted to uphold the Constitution. He may have never even thought about it if it didn’t keep coming up (to his bafflement). He became president because that seemed like a good hustle for his real estate interests, and he figured he’d be good at it because he was a star on TV.

    • He is almost in his 80s.theres no hope in treating him.

  13. Wanda Garner | June 3, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

    I’m in disbelief that he can’t be removed immediately.

    • @Michael Andersson Maybe you go a little further and just shut up letting us deal with our own problems. I’m sure, Europe has none (sarc)

      Michael Andersson thanks for not disappointing and your welcome for the free world you live in.I noticed you left out your country of origin that is the utopia you describe. Americans are sick and tired of politicians who tippytoe around every new group in order to be politically correct. People have confused political correctness with what is correct. Democrats in this country promise everything to everybody, only to get an office . Their policies have completely destroyed this country making promises they can’t keep and another thing Americans could care less what the rest of the world thinks.

    When Hitler recruited his Brownshirts in the 1920s to, among other things, harass voters at polling stations, as the GOP has plans to do in November, many of the members were ex-cops.

      Be grateful he hasn’t. He would just go to the Old Testament genocidal sections where the Israelites killed other tribes as they marched through the desert to their “Promised Land” which was already fully populated at the time. Trump would see this as the path to empire.

    • The only real surprise was the did not erupt into spontaneous combustion at his very touch. The Donald is far closer to “the anti-Christ”, than a Christian. The fact Donald ordered his photo op should not not shock anyone.
