      @Reinhard yes top secret co gress meetings yesterday showing proof this is true

    • @Reinhard Why are you so hellbent on living in denial? Thats a symptom of a serious brainwashing disease . I bet you haven’t even read the article. All kinds of evidence is RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE if you bothered to actually do your homework before leaping to denial. Also guess what. The sky is blue.

    • @Seablack66 What do you want to do with the rest of your life until you die? How do want to spent it?

      Could it be that Democrat leaders want Trump out of the White House to hide their own criminal activity? Yes, most definitely.

    • Mark Campbell | July 3, 2020 at 9:18 PM | Reply

      Anything Trump does is by god to his supporters. They love Donald J Trump, he does nothing wrong. This does not matter to his cult.

  2. Trump trust dictators like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong un and Xi Jinping, Trump doesn’t trust the u.s intelligence committee agencies.
    Trump is a traitor

  3. Anyone supporting the traitor in the WH is also a traitor.

  4. The President takes the same oath as our armed forces, to not abide by his sworn oath is nothing short of treasonous!

    • Still crocodile tears , Americans whining for same treatment they inflict up on to innocent civilians in other countries .
      How about start caring about those children USA bomb in Yemen … after USA has stopped that , then lets talk about this issue .

      @tinaxtony I take it you’re British since you say “in the UK”. People ARE on the streets in this country–but I’m afraid there’s a flaw in our constitution. It is too hard to remove a president. It’s functioned well enough for the last 200+ years, but we do not live in normal times. We are dealing with a cult of personality, around a head of state who has no respect for the rule of law and democratic norms, and his followers live an alternative reality bubble that seems impervious to verifiable facts. We are stuck with Trump until the November election.

      @ Madolina Degocelli what are your thoughts on the PROVEN ISSUE AT HAND involving TRUMP and Russian bounties being placed on soldiers? Your attempt at deflection and redirection is admirable, but this tactic has been well overused during this administration…

    • mark scott Marching on the WH not a good idea, the WH has a meaning more than the person inside and is itself an institution and is shameful to desecrate that place because it represents every American citizen. Mass sit downs on main streets in silence gets more attention and is peaceful. However I’m not encouraging you to do that I was only remarking that Boris would be swinging by his trossachs if he acted like that. The media would make his position untenable

    And we never had a President who won’t WILLFULLY show his Tax Return either.. The worst President EVER!!!!!!!

  8. Not only “faithless to his oath”, but also an irresponsible & immoral individual who has ever held the POTUS title

  9. Trump’s handler and benefactor Putin, has placed a price tag on the heads of our troops in Afghanistan. And Trump responds by doing absolutely nothing. Trump has never said one bad word about Putin. Not….one.

    • Pedro Correia | July 3, 2020 at 4:03 AM | Reply

      To be fair, he did nothing through his whole presidency, unless it made him some money.
      He is the best at doing nothing.

    • Charles L Jones | July 3, 2020 at 5:20 AM | Reply

      Sickening isn’t it. But he has vilified the handicapped minorities Muslims women the press our military heroes and even our allies. But he treats Putin like Jesus Christ. There’s no doubt Putin has something on Trump and our soldiers are just a pawn in his scheme. Be safe and have a nice holiday.

    • Miriam Flores | July 3, 2020 at 5:48 AM | Reply

      He only praises him and glows when Putin is around him. The whole world is watching. USA is not the most admire country nor the strongest. Is weak thanks to Trump. GOP loves him and his base are ignorant. Not paying attention to what is going on with this president or just don’t care.

      At some point, a man who DOES read intelligence reports looked over a KGB dossier and said to himself, “Hmmm. Crooked American businessman. Can’t get loans anymore. Lies unblushingly. Political ambitions. I can work with this.”

      Then to his subordinate he said, “Yuri Ivanovitch, reach out to this …Trump person. Ask if he needs a friend.”

    • @Wheatie Sweetie Ok clearly you are as intellectual as a brick wall.

    • Look let me explain it to you because honestly your clearly in a position mentally that needs something pointed to you.
      Not one comment i wrote was anything pro republican or pro democrat you inferred that through your own simple mind.
      I stated facts and facts alone why you would choose to isolate facts to one party or another tells me you don’t have the intelligence to argue your point

    Yes, the United States has had dumb Presidents, incompetent Presidents and immoral Presidents but never faithless Presidents. Donald Trump is all these encapsulated in one person: A traitor-in-chief.

    • We never had a traitor president. Until now. Hopefully never again!

    • @SunriseLAW Only traitors from team drump can count on votes from other traitors. GTFO, traitor.

    • He needs to resign and pence he allready impeached gop get him out…

      And a racist a narcissist an egomaniacal pathological liar whose lies never cross the path of logic. And those are his good points. Could we have done any worse than trump.the answer is an unequivocal resounding no. My pet dog would be an upgrade. And my pet cat would be a better vice president…..wishful thinking. Have a nice holiday.

      @ Madolina Degocelli so what it your opinion on this current proven issue of Russian bounties being placed on American soldiers involving Trump that is going on right now?

  12. Romanes eunt domus | July 3, 2020 at 1:03 AM | Reply

    Remember when republicans were outraged because president Obama asked a marine to hold an umbrella? Well, those same republicans are just looking the other way this time

    • Romanes eunt domus
      I remember. It was raining and Present Obama was giving an outdoor speech.
      I also remember that Congressman Wilson who yelled during Obama’s speech:”You lie!” who now is strangely quiet when Trump lies with each breath he takes.
      His utter disrespect he showed President Obama, which I believed had a lot to do with his race, while being silent during the tenure of the worst president in America’s history will be his disgusting legacy.

    • President of the Virgin Islands | July 3, 2020 at 1:49 PM | Reply

      Other presidents had soldiers hold umbrellas also.

    • @President of the Virgin Islands
      Had it been any other president, Democratic or Republican, it would not have been given a second thought, as your comment makes clear.
      So why did it elicit strong complaints when it was done by President Obama? What’s different between Obama and all the other presidents who have done the same?

    • President of the Virgin Islands | July 3, 2020 at 2:20 PM | Reply

      @Kicky Because Obama is black. They looked for any and everything to pick him apart.

    • @President of the Virgin Islands
      That’s the only difference I see also.

      At least Benedict Arnold was a COMPETENT general. tRump isn’t, at least, a COMPETENT business man.

      @IHCTerra I’m not talking about the removal, I’m pointing out the fact, that Crackhead Hunter got that job though his fathers influence, and that’s the same as Joe Biden taking a bribe, he used his position to obtain a lucrative job for his inexperienced son, that’s the same a excepting a payoff. That itself is corruption.

      @Matthew Lewis true but he was also executed for treason what’s trump’s excuse?

    • @john carioscia Trump’s kids didn’t get a job because of their father’s influence, he gave them jobs. Bidens son getting a job working for a corporation isn’t illegal. Hiring your kid in a government job is. Letting them use that job for personal gain is also. Using campaign funds to funnel money into your kids pockets by buying out his crappy book is a crime.

      You have to be blind stupid to complain about something legal while your guy is doing 10 times that and his actions are actually illegal. And he is committing treason on top of it.

  15. Lets exile Trump to Russia and not let him come back !!!!

  16. Trump was compromised by Russia way before running for president. With Russia’s interference in the election he became President Trump. Deep down he’s always been Comrade Trumpski.

    Force Protection is sacred. Trump is a failed human being.
