    You don’t care until it impacts your life.

  2. 3:22 That’s the pose you see in posters on the back of buses, trying to see if you need an accident attorney.

      Dude that’s spot on!

      CNN. The FAKEST of the fake “news.”
      If news could be sewage, this is it.

      thegrandfinale2 and yet here you are, ranting and raving because none of CNN’s journalists have the smell of Fat-Nixon’s taint on their noses. Go back to state-run media over on Faux ‘News’ to find your MAGAt safe space!

  3. The words social and media should never have been put together lol.

  4. “A young Republican with progressive ideas…”
    Think about that for a second.

    I’m glad I asked about this, i believe ideals need to be discussed without “too much” discourse.

      Yes I agree with you Kevin. I have never heard of a young Republican with progressive/commie ideas.

    • @DK x Mace You should leave your hole sometime and see the world as it is.

    • @Strangest Craze – ”To give credit where credit is due.” That’s the spirit.
      In these partisan times, unfortunately that spirit is gone, and compromise is a bad word.

      In climate marches, gen z is the driving force.

    • There is no such thing as a “progressive republican”. at least not anymore. Mr Trump enjoys 80% support from GOP voters. this means that an overwhelming majority of GOP voters support a racist, demagogic, populist who lacks a basic understanding of the US Constitution and demonstrated zero respect for the rule of law. This is not a thing conservatives would have ANYTHING to do with, t his is why those who support Mr Trump are called “pseudo-conservative” and “pseudo-conservatism” is a symptom of disordered psychology. This has been understood since the late 1950’s when true conservatives (like Barry Goldwater) relegated them to the margins they earned.

    • @Orlando Tourist Traps Oh my, you sure told CNN!
      What’s funny about that is that the Fox Noise model has so distorted your understanding of reality that you believe that sort of behavior is normal. It is not. It’s the same reason republicans are supporting a president who is so devoid or morals or respect for the law. You’ve been told for decades that Democrats have been committing crimes non-stop. It’s not true of course, but pseudo-conservatives aren’t big on evidence or reality.

    • James Smith what does CA have to do with this thread?

    • Andy C It’s not because of the taxes. It’s because housing prices are so high. The reason why housing prices are so high in California is because of the tech industry. The tech industry attracts the highest paying workers. They pay the highest in rent and mortgages. They’re driving housing costs up. It’s happening in Massachusetts Boston as well. State some facts not your dog,. The worst thing in the world is a stupid person

    • Eve Ning The taxes are a big part of it too. I work in the airline industry and talk to people all across the country


  6. Zucker told his plebes to push this narrative on the daily conference call.

  7. You shouldn’t be “loyal” to the Democratic or Republican party. They should be loyal to you, the people!

  8. Zuckerberg who doesn’t even let his family use Facebook, doesn’t care as long as he makes enough money to essentially be his own country!

  9. Ah, I see your young Republican with progressive ideas! Right next to the poptart cat farting a rainbow!

  10. A decent human being and a responsible citizen would vote with their conscience and the good for society, not for their desire to stay in the seat of power or money or self-interest.

    Coups are illegal and Carry severe penalties

  12. Doesn’t this prove that politics is more important than principles to many of these politicians?

    • It proves that politicians are too partisan. If you get 100 normal people in a room to vote on a good idea, it ends up 90 yes 10 no. Take that very same idea in Congress and you get a 51-49 vote. When one party is always siding with whatever goes against the other; then Houston We Have a Problem. Normal group of people would pass immigration loophole bill, USMCA bill, and lower medication costs bill in a heartbeat. Being those are not going to be brought to vote cause Dems have majority – is WRONG. And wrong never is right.

    • The impeachment is feature of desperation. The democrat rats are not interested in anything that does not remove Trump. Not a good look. The Ciamarella News Network is fake news.

    • The calif dems are perfect example of politics over principle. Look at calif.

    • Not necessarily. He for sure knew the vote to begin the impeachment inquiry would pass, so voting against to improve chances of keeping the seat could be argued as the more principled approach. I don’t feel that way, but there is a case there.

    • maybe. maybe not. would you rather have a hard-right guy in his place? sometimes being strategic (when you know vote will pass anyway) is a smart move.

      peterson is an odd political duck. but he mostly votes dem in what’s basically a reddish district. he’s voted “with trump” since 2019 (116th congress) 20% of the time – down from 67% for 115th congress (starting in 2017)

      and you can think 20% is bad but click on “senators” then “115th congress” and then click TWICE on header of “trump score”

      and look at all the senators ABOVE 20%

      he’s w/ dems for the big votes. that matters.

  13. Instead of spending 33mil on advertising, maybe we can use that money to help the American ppl? Priorities ppl

  14. Oh wow. Look journalism on CNN. that’s different. And then Brian comes on a ruins it. Nvm.

      Journalism and CNN should never appear in the same sentence or even the same universe. CNN is the fakest of the fake bull💩 FAKE “news”

  15. So what you are saying is that the congressman is representing his constituency? How could this be allowed to happen?

  16. 3:19 Damn that screen changed way too fast, almost had a heart attack, i thought it was Pennywise with that creepy smile!

  17. Why was Peterson not interviewed? Maybe he voted that way because his belief is Trump did nothing wrong. Does CNN only want to push one possible reason? More than likely.


  19. Republicans will never ever bend over for deleted TOP Secret e-mails. Bleach bit or Uranium One.

  20. Proof that all Congress folks only care about their seats. They’ll do anything to save their spot.
