  1. If Republicans had a winning message they wouldn’t have to steal your vote. Your vote is your power, use it wisely.

    • Repubs have NO message, except maybe “screw you.”

      You are wrong. It seems there are a lot of rogue, racist , fascist cops who think they have a license to murder with impunity.
      You may not understand the meaning of the word racist , but you should since you are one.

  2. Exactly right. History, in fact, Republican history is not on the side of the Republicans!

    • @Wil the pill Orshal thats the man that keeps beating down the lawless dems..

    • @Wil the pill Orshal what crime.. lol.. the lawless dems cant even find just 1 crime..or collusion..

      Tax fraud , bank fraud , insurance fraud , obstruction of Congress , obstruction of justice, money laundering , Emoluments clause violations. Misappropriation of public funds , extortion .
      SDNY is going to be real busy when donnie loses and barr is removed.
      They DID find collusion but the cowardly Republicans in the Senate refused to remove him after he was impeached.

  3. The Amount of Disrespect and Contempt for American Voters amongst GOP Senators is Worrisome……😤😠

    Guess the reps actually think the Democrats, & the majority of the American people, are going to let them screw over the nation.
    Looking forward to the week after November 3rd. I wonder how many repubs will be infected by then? Any bets they’ll try to blame: Hillary, Obama, Santa Claus, ET, the Easter Bunny, or Jyna?🙄🙄🙄🙄

      BIDEN/ HARRIS 2020 🇺🇸

    • @James Elliott if you have nothing to add to the conversation just be silent little 🐈🐈🐈.

    • @Alexandros Theodorou
      If the Repuglikkkan Party reps were true patriots.
      Trump and his buddy in Crime Pence could be Impeached and removed before the end of next week!
      But that will Never happen will it?
      Because the Repuglikkkan party would need to get President Putin’s permission FIRST!
      Because the Repuglikkkan party is the party of PUTIN!

  5. Biden has the experience that trump doesnt.justice Ruth made her wishes & trump stomped allOverIt.sad.#biden2020

  7. let it be forever known…the GOP took away your healthcare … while giving away tax breaks to their buddies…

    • @Alexandros Theodorou And?

      @Bucky Pinata Daddy Donny gives tax rebates to Millionaires and Billionaires while barely doing anything for the middle class and the poor, and the poor conservative claps. Truly… the poor and middle-class conservatives are domesticated dogs of the rich and it’s sad.

    • @Shaurya Raikkonen I got tax breaks, and I’m middle class. Business got tax breaks and were able to give bonuses and raises and increase hiring. Point? Besides moot….

    • @Bucky Pinata Rubbish. Businesses did not on the whole increase wages or increase hire. The increase was slipped into the recipient’s piggy bank for the wee piggies. But the real question is this:
      Where is the GOP health care plan after 10 years?
      The answer is: There is no GOP healthcare plan after ten years if kvetching and lying

    The proceedings should be shut down until they all come safely .

  9. Just because you “tick the boxes” does not mean you get “The Right” to do “whatever you please”.

    Especially, when it hurts REAL PEOPLE.

    • Psalm 23

      Btw, plastic plants are TOILET!

      Use real ones. There’s nothing lower than “faking nature”.. it loses “the magic”. I call it: LIFE!

    • At “the highest level”: Judge Barrett just refused to do the job she “applied for”.

      She has REFUSED to “interpret The Law AND/OR The Constitution of The United States”!

      An “interesting strategy”!

      I wonder what she does for “an Encore”?

      Pulls out a lighter and crack-pipe. Takes “a quick toke” before jumping the barrier to “dance a jig” on the chairman’s desk swirling his gavel in the air as she “giyrates her junk”, maybe?🤔


    • *Shoulda been: “…gyrates her junk in The Chairman’s face!”.

      Author’s note: given how 2020 is “diddling”, I’m not going to “rule it out”!😜👍

    It will do nothing, she has been chosen to overturn Roe v Wade and repeal the ACA. She will do it, make no mistake.

      @James Elliott So you religitards want to bring in babies to suffer , you are evil.

    • I pray you’re correct. Roe and ACA are both immoral.

    • Diane O'Donovan | October 13, 2020 at 6:49 PM | Reply

      That’s not the worst of it, either. They want to destroy the role of the people in justice and in protecting their world.

    • Diane O'Donovan | October 13, 2020 at 6:51 PM | Reply

      @James Elliott If you hope for it, you’re endorsing corruption and the destruction of the American people’s place in the constitution. It won’t be “we the people” any more. Your role will be to slave for millionaires to become ever richer while you lose your rights, your safeguards and even your voting power, thanks to gerrymandering. Didn’t you hear what Senator Whitehouse had to say?

  12. Let us VOTE for BIDEN/HARRIS in GREAT NUMBERS so there is NO QUESTION as
    to who is the clear WINNER! We have a chance to save our DEMOCRACY!
    Let’s DO IT!

  13. Republicans simply don’t care about history, honor, legacy or hypocrisy.

    I don’t trust anyone who believes that the planet is only 6000 years old.

    • Being 4.5 billion years off is still closer to correct than anyone who says socialism is a good idea. Move to Venezuela and be a starving slave down there. Stupid.

    • @Iblis König Should I believe that some of you crawled out of the sea? Okay. I can buy that ♥

    • @Truth Finder Thank your mom for not getting rid of you–how kind and loving of her.

    • @ChannelSurfer 2020 You support the use of ice picks during an abortion.

    • @Ellen Peba lmao “Hey, I have trouble wrapping my head around complex science so I guess this ancient game of madlibs made by goatherders who didn’t know where the sun went at night will do! It’s gotta have all the answers in it!” How childish.

  14. Donald Trump and his administrations are cheaters liars and they’ll do anything to stay in power so they don’t wind up in jail like they’re going to

  15. America knows this hearing is a Republican sham !!! GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE A STRAIGHT BLUE TICKET IN NUMBERS TO BIG TO RIG !

  16. GOP NOT of President Lincoln
    Now just a bunch selfish 😒 millionaires
    We need to clean out these self serving
    useless characters

    • Judith Benoit The ‘Democratic-Republican Party’ of the 1850s and 1860s diverged and actually became the current day Democratic Party. In terms of humanity and compassion and policies, Lincoln and his administration were actually in-line with the current Democratic stance.

  17. The GOP is no more. The Party of Trump is devoid of leadership and decency.

  18. Gop assault on healthcare, womens rights, the environment, workers, etc etc continues. Vote Blue!!

  19. There is a new disinfectant called VOTE. It is specifically designed to remove contagious and deadly ORANGE viruses…It is most effective if used by November 3, 2020.

  20. This woman is there only to clear Trump for another term…wonder how much she is getting for that.

    • @cynthia van rens recite that to yourself…is there something wrong with that sentence?

    • @cynthia van rens I already heard booker say trump hasn’t denounced white supremacy when he’s done so over 5 times.. no one really listens to the liberal left/socialist/communist/racists/fascist say anymore…it’s all propaganda to fit into their unworkable narrative they make up. How’s that Russian collusion going. Back fired huh? Useful idiots…
