  6. VOTE in numbers #TooBigToRig

    Republicans have won the popular vote (narrowly) just ONCE in the last 32 years. The American people overwhelmingly favor democratic policies. Republicans win by gerrymandering, voter suppression and new to Trump – Foreign interference.

    OMG! Let’s kick out this absolute madness from the white house ❗

  9. The best thing to use to “contain” the entire trump gang is a cage.

  10. A nightmare to have US Pres. Like Trump

    He’s the biggest disaster to hit america since WWII. The death toll may just surpass that too.

    • Brendan Brogren | September 1, 2020 at 10:48 AM | Reply

      @Stephanie Logan could be. I’m just counting covid-19 but who truly knows what the true count is. Then adding the other deaths because of his policy changes and the right wing extremists he cultivated the count is unknown

    • Only if he gets a second term. Biden will surely listen to the experts and get the thing under control like the rest of the free world.

    • Possibly, just possibly, this entire years long drama will have shaken everybody in the country up so badly, by testing every facet of government which has been found to be horrendously inadequate, that statutes will be rewritten. Where honour systems existed, all be entered into law including and especially presidents and their vices. This should be done to fortify safeguards to stop even the offchance of such events recurring.

    • More Americans have died so far from Covid19 than in WW l,and are about half way to WW ll totals.The problem is a virus can’t be shot and killed by a gun,only by medical knowledge and cooperation by the American people.Trump doesn’t care about medical experts and he has not led by example to encourage people to follow guidelines.The virus is receding in most other countries,but increasing in the US.The results of an incompetent President and his response.

    Politicians should play no part in selecting judges for the supreme court. The court is meant to be impartial, not filled with religious thinking zealots.

      @Kathryn Shaw lol now every time I look at trump all I will see is one of those wee bobble heads bouncing around 🤣🤣🤣🤣 thats brilliant, a bobble head 🤣🤣🤣

    • USA is a joke

    • @muadhib001 – Your statement that the “USA is a joke” is precisely why citizens must take their right to vote very seriously. No building is any better than it’s foundation. The foundation of America is the character, expertise and experience of the people that we elect to lead us. Too much sand in the mix and the foundation will crumble. People elected who have proven that they do not have the best interests of America or of Americans should not be given a second chance. These are about important issues. This is not about frivolous matters like the color of your suit or the location of your haircut. This is about did you make decisions or statements that ultimately led to the deaths of others? Why did you take such an action? Were your actions an effort to protect and preserve the USA, or was your intent driven by self-interest or even foreign interest? Americans have demanded self-auditing in every sector of our society for almost 50 years now. Do these politicians welcome or resist these efforts at quality control. We all know that Donald Trump has resisted every effort by the House Oversight Committee to the extent of taking every single question to court. Right now, the USA is a very deadly place to be, especially for those who consider themselves “friends” of the president. I hope that this next election brings out citizens determined to vote for the well-being and longevity of America. Make your vote count. Vote Blue. .

    • Wishful thinking. Trump was not the 1st president to engage in court packing.

    • @Silky – Presidents have attempted court packing before. However, we currently have a Senator that has “gone rogue”. He has usurped many of the powers and duties of the President of the United States of America when in reality he is simply one of two elected Senators from a very poor State. He has chosen to get rich through bribes, graft and other forms of corruption. He and the Federalist Society, not Trump, have been packing the courts. It would be one thing if these people were noteworthy for their legal expertise, but they are not. This political fringe group is willing to put rapists, murderers, thieves or any other piece of scum on the Federal bench for a lifetime paycheck just as long as they agree to roll over on command. Trump has provided the distraction, while McConnell has actually been running the country or not. The only bills that the Senate has been allowed to work on during this presidency are the ones that personally help McConnell. He has been an unforgivable bottleneck in our Legislative Branch. When it became clear that Trump’s actions were jeopardizing the reelection plans of Republican Senators, McConnell put a halt on the second Stimulus Package. McConnell made it clear to Trump who was really in charge.

  13. Enough of these books! Just EVERYBODY go and vote for Biden!

    You cannot contain a fart and you can’t control trump.. Who is a big fart!

  15. We are in very dark times, when the President of the 🇺🇸 is the biggest threat to democracy.

  16. They elected a clown & surprised that a circus showed up. 💕💯

  17. You know who else demanded personal loyalty instead of loyalty to their country? Hitler…

    name one dictator in history that was “contained” The real scary thing is the USA is showing how people like Hitler got a foothold.

      Last year I wrote: “He is going to do something” is the headline of one chapter of the last published book “A Warning” of the so called Anonymous, a certainly entertaining instalment in a row of many already published and expected yet to come… The so called “adults in the room” underestimated his (Trump) ability to disrupt and overestimated their ability to contain it.”

      Skip to the end. Many committed suicide others were murdered

    • Ttrruuee

    • and you have to see that he will do a “Stalin” to his enablers when he doesn’t need them anymore.

    • That is a true statement and because they thought Hitler was joking but now we know how that turned out. In this instance the same thing is happening and saddest thing is, most want it too happen while the rest does nothing to stop it. Sort of like having you’re head in the sand…hoping it goes away

  19. Make America Dignified Again (MADA) Biden – Harris 2020

  20. How depressing to find out that everyone in the white house has a personal agenda and it’s never for the American people.

    • Susanne Härtl | September 1, 2020 at 1:04 PM | Reply

      Last year I wrote: “The three years of his tenure appeared to be even worse I could have imaged, for I had no idea how far his mental decline was forgone. In the end it led me to the conclusion, that he was merely a figurehead for all the multiple fractions who enabled him. I do not buy it for one second that they had thought he himself will make good policy in general, merely his enablers try to manipulate him to serve their own agenda as he is so easily impressible. Their contradicting agendas are clearly reflecting his erratic conduct. The so called “adults in the room” underestimated his ability to disrupt and overestimated their ability to contain it.”

    • These people are puppets for the Draco-reptilians. Supposedly, the bloodline families and the Freemasons are getting killed off around the 1st of the year. They will not relinquish their satanic power. I hear 22 Rothshilds are broke and in China trying to start WWIII. The White Dragon Society is broke. The PM of Japan resigned. A powerful Jesuit died. This all means the powerful Cabal are not so much these days. The end is near.
