  1. Ordering companies on how to trade… imagine a Democrat doing that… pitchforks and torches!

      I will be first in line to watch.

    • @collab. rec There is a name for it – the 1977 ‘Emergency Economic
      Powers Act’.
      Ross Perot (I voted for him) warned us all,in 1992,that moving production operations overseas was a terrible idea – he was right.
      Trump is trying to correct this giant error and is being vilified in the process.
      It may cause a temporary economic downturn but in the long term our country will be better off.

      Dave Schultz lol i dont recall the word “agreement” anywhere in his tweets.

      Dave Schultz maybe you’re just acting stupid on purpose.

    Quote of the week: “Trust fund baby, casino-bankrupting, reality TV rodeo clown.”

  3. Trump is grossly out of control and should be taken down

  4. George Conway said it best “YOU ARE NUTS”

    The Trump-missile fired at the US is doing the damage Putin intended. They must be celebrating in Moscow.

    • @hkistreet Frontline did an interesting show ‘Putin’s revenge’. Basically Putin is beyond disgusted on how Russia was treated leading up to the collapse of the Soviet Union and, in particular, how the US gave no help to and even took advantage of a seriously hurting Russia after the collapse.

    • Neil Johnson Boris seems a million times smarter. And self aware which is nice

    • @JPR He isn’t hiding. We are being continuously gas lighted into believing he isn’t what everyone can see.

      Neil Johnson The only “investment” near or around his fat orange A$$ that is actually paying dividends.

    The Republicans might as well put a crown on trump…it’s the way they are treating him like. A King!

  7. That’s what happens when you’ve got a chosen madman to run a country. Total choas as you don’t know what to expect everyday.

  8. Those people who put Trump into office are too dumb to understand all these.

  9. You would think everyone would know by now, that anyone connected to Trump, will eventually find themselves beneath the cramped and overcrowded undercarriage of a bus.

      he can bring to heel. Those who came willingly to his circle thinking that he will elevate them, I have no sympathy for. They knew his history, walked into this mess. Their poor judgement will cling to them. Those that he tries to shame because he feels that he has the right can take comfort in that normal people see through the bullish-t.

    • Hildebeast Clinton | August 24, 2019 at 10:36 AM | Reply

      David J Breaking: Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, just confirmed that in 2015, the FBI directed him to rekindle a romantic relationship with Maria Butina, the Russian gun rights activist who admitted in December to conspiring with a senior Russian official to infiltrate conservative American political circles. Their goal was to take down Trump.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton You mean the raving lunatic who had to resign after his rant on Fox and cannot verify anything except that he had a sporadic relationship with Butina. Bwahaha. He was sent there by his ‘rabbi’ (his words) Warren Buffet.

    • Hildebeast Clinton the FBI thought Trump had a chance to win and needed to be taken down in 2015? I believe Byrne’s story when it comes to having FBI contacts, telling them about meeting Butina and her Kremlin connections and being encouraged to milk information on a Russian intelligence agent. What doesn’t make sense or click to me is that they caught Butina, she’s in jail now and her indictment had nothing to do with Trump except for him getting $30m campaign donation from the NRA who she was trying to build Russia’s connections with for political leverage and money laundering but how did following her foreign agent shenanigans to gain insight and then busting her take down Trump? The NRA donated almost as much to Clinton. Hypothetically, If the FBI wanted more info on Butina because they thought she was in on Russia’s effort to help Trump get elected (which I don’t thing they found, wasn’t she just infiltrating the NRA?) then isn’t that the kind of thing you’d want the FBI gaining as much inside intel on as possible? That’s not a coup as Byrne says, that’s they’re job

  10. This is the point that one would be looking into retirement homes if it were your grandpa

    • Andrew Bises… True but doubt whether Donny would know what that is. He is a hug-free zone. Even the flag didn’t reciprocate.

    • @Roger Wagner look at some of his press releases, he hugs himself when he has to read a statement he doesn’t like

    • Andrew Bises… you’re so right. He does exhibit some value, if only for body language or psychology classes

    • @Roger Wagner I agree, but as a stark warning like the pictures on cigarette packs

  11. Yes, “Trust fund baby, casino-bankrupting, reality TV rodeo clown.” Exactly!

    • Bernard Barnett | August 24, 2019 at 10:32 AM | Reply

      That’s a great 👍 statement.

    • Don’t forget – draft dodging

    • Vizzini: You fell victim to one of the classic blunders—the most famous of which is, “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”—but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line”! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha…[thunk].

    • No jail as the TRAITORS they brought RUSSIA in here and trump and Republican are the only ones that are criminal s with Russia and China. Wecthe people are BETRAYED because trump gave russia are SECRETS. TRAITORS that work against AMERICA FOR RUSSIA is a TRAITOR to AMERICA.

  12. It’s time to 25th the 45th! Enough is enough…

    Remember that it’s Moscow Mitch and the GOP who have kept him in office….

    • @Eric Pratt Moscow Mitch McKremlin. lol!

    • @Tessmage Tessera I sincerely fear that the GOP will NOT really suffer for their role in aiding and abetting Trump.

    • Tessmage Tessera | August 24, 2019 at 11:38 AM | Reply

      @MNTribeFan Of course they’ll suffer. Just keep voting against every Republican, in every single election, for the rest of your life. If everyone else does the same thing, then the Republican party goes extinct within 12 years.

    • @Tessmage Tessera I can see the 2020 election going towards the Dems, but
      1) Republicans will still have the whole conservative media backed by conservative billionaires https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_media_(U.S._political_right)
      2) Conservative media is actually more effective when they are attacking Democrats in power
      3) Trump has appointed fully one quarter of the lifetime federal judgeships including two Supreme Court justices
      4) Historically, Democrats have been weak and Republicans strong. Democrats have struggled to hold on to power since Reagan.
      I *hope* you are right…

    • Derek Mitchell | August 24, 2019 at 12:30 PM | Reply

      @MNTribeFan Nah Trump is probably going to win again in 2020. The economy is doing good rural areas where I live are building on, that haven’t in decades. I’m working more hours. I got more tax money back than I did in years before despite not making more money. And I’m dirt poor.

  14. Vote all Republicans in the Senate out in 2020 especially Moscow Mitch.

    • @Jimmy T Smith have you ever heard of a battery? The point is that there are ways of storing energy so you can watch tv at night.

    • @Terry Daktyl and even if solar power “didn’t work at night” you could use it (and wind power) for the entire daytime power and shift to old fashioned electrical at night
      There are lots of ways to make it “work” contrary to what Donald Trump would tell you. It’s on his best interest to work with existing
      Billionaires while China invents new things that will take over the market. If it was up to trump we’d all live under a heavy blanket of cole polluted air.

    • @Jimmy T Smith Never had a problem as much as the Republikkkans

  15. nichole Roberts | August 24, 2019 at 4:11 AM | Reply

    We all knew trump was unstable. And we all knew he was unfit to be president.

  16. Trump is probably acting demented to avoid going to prison.

  17. Banruptcy Trump clown telling CEOs what to do Stalin stlye agahahaha!!!

    Hats off to Putin. Making trump the president to weaken US really works.

      Kean-Leong Ang You can almost hear his laughter all the way from Moscow…

    • Yup and it was CHEAP attacking a country electronically is cheap. He coming back for 2020 you guys better be ready.

    • @Doom2exe I have no doubt..

      I think is working after all these years…….”We will take americans without firing a shot. We don’t have to invade the US. We will destroy you from within” Nikita Kruschchev 11-18-56

  19. Trump’s presidency represents an existential threat to us all.

    • Claus Tindbæk | August 24, 2019 at 11:24 AM | Reply

      Trump is absolutely the worst president ever ….. racist – mental sick – liar – corrupt – moron

    Trump runs your country like his businesses. Into the ground.
