  1. The Taliban meeting was so secret even the Taliban didn’t know about it, someone told me.

  2. But. But…. Those Trump supporters who evacuated Alabama still waiting for Trump to declare its safe to come back, pray for them. Bless

  3. Every day this country is sliding on an extremely slippery slope…..

    Lord have mercy.

  4. Stop saying 12000 false or misstatements and call them what they are: ‘LIES’!

    • They are deplorable mindless scum.

    • @espltd1000 never read muellers mandate, did you?
      the word “collusion” was never used
      it never was about “collusion”
      yet that’s all you fuckers ever talk about, ’cause that’s what Donnie talked about
      youre so fucking slow

    • “Trumpanzies” 👍🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

    • @espltd1000 – You say “You mean like all the Russia collusion evidence….” Absolutely! JUST LIKE THAT.
      Despite claims by both President Trump and his Attorney General, the Special Counsel’s report did NOT exonerate the President. You only believe the President because you never bothered to read the report itself. Part 1 of the report lists numerous PROVEN instances of collusion between Trump’s Election Campaign and Russian entities close to or part of Putin’s regime.
      What the report did not do is specifically claim the collusion amounted to a CRIMINAL conspiracy.
      Collusion is not a legal definition of a crime. Conspiracy is. The Trump Campaign DEFINITELY colluded with Russian entities. But the investigation could not prove that any of the collusion incidents amounted to evidence of actual criminal conspiracy.
      Why not? Because proving criminal conspiracy sets a VERY high bar. Evidence of simple collusion is not enough. Criminal conspiracy, in these particular circumstances, would constitute actual treason. A crime that still carries the death penalty in the US.
      If Mueller had found evidence criminal conspiracy, that would have resulted in the President and many on his campaign staff being put on trial for treason.
      That’s why Mueller tried to transfer the results of his inquiry to Congress. Congress is the proper venue to charge collusion, because it comes under the definition of ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors’ as outlined in the Constitution itself.
      The Attorney General of the United States, together with the President and his administration, are attempting to thwart that basic Constitutional system by refusing to allow Congress access to the necessary documents and witnesses required to complete the investigations.
      You may agree with that strategy. But it sets a dangerous precedent. Future presidents (Republican AND Democrat) will almost certainly continue this behavior and expand on it further, which undermines the whole system (the checks and balances, the proper separation of powers) that the Founding Fathers worked so hard to build.
      A system that has proved robust for well over two hundred years is now under serious threat. But I guess you don’t care about that kind of thing.

      Read through Part I and count for yourself how many proven instances of Russia-Trump campaign collusion it contains.

  10. Wilbur Ross is even more pathetic than it’s SNL depiction.

      I still say that Ross looks just like Jeff Dunham’s puppet Walter and who wouldn’t want to see McConnell on a Stick

  11. Only trump could turn one moment of idiocy into a full blown gov scandal.

    Trump and his swamp creatures have no shame.

  13. What do you expect… *WE TOLD YOU IN 2016 IT’S GOING TO BE LIKE THE MAFIA YOU DIDN’T BELIEVE US.*

  14. Conclusion: don’t contradict the chosen one. This applies to facts, truth and free speech effectively becoming Blasphemy.

    • How do propose Pelosi gets by do-nothing Moscow Mitch and his cohorts? She knows getting Senate approval is virtually impossible, so why bother. Americans voted #45 in, so let them bear the burdens of whatever #45 brings to the Presidential office.
