  1. President doesn’t care about anybody but himself it’s pathetic that he’s like letting the American people suffer like this I don’t even have money for food.

    • @Andrew Orahoske William h is also a homophobic

    • **TRUMP IS ONLY PRESIDENT,,, TO HELP HIS FRIENDS!!! HE’S NOT THE PRESIDENT,, FOR ALL AMERICANS,,, LIKE JOE BIDEN WILL BE!!!!**

    • **IT’S TIME TO VOTE ALL THE REPUBLICANS OUT OF OFFICE!!!! THEY ONLY TAKE CARE OF THE RICH!!! MAKE SURE YOU VOTE!!!! CONGRESS PASSED,, ANOTHER STIMULUS BILL, MONTHS AGO,,, BUT MITCH MCCONNELL IS REFUSING TO HELP US!!!! VOTE HIM OUT!!!!**

      @John Edward well said, and since we see all those CAPS, those of us sitting on the fence now know who to vote for tnx:
      mask_less-new_hair-let-them-eat-ice-cream-Nancie: ” we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does.” What that means is that Your Vote only counts if it is for the pres. that the house speaker likes. That is not the America I was born and raised and now vote in!
      truetrump lies 20000 times a day. dont believe me? just go to ht tps : / / w w w . MSNBC-cant-be-trusted . com /find_out_about / 20000_true_trump_lies User name: Kamala_believes_those_women_who_accuses_Biden_of_sexual_assault Password: Kamala_knows_a_predator_when_she_sees_one … Just ask Lucy Flores, Amy Lappos, Caitlyn Caruso, Tara Reade and D.J. Hill why does there seem to be a double standard? where is the double standard that supports truth? it is Biden who is the serial offender not Bret. so far more than five women – Lucy Flores, Amy Lappos, Caitlyn Caruso, Tara Reade and D.J. Hill – have accused Joe of sexual assault Something tells us that there will be many more accusations before Nov. 3 and the news media will NOT cover it! hashtag # walkaway “When you surrender you do not get freedom you get facism” DJT November 3 is only days away. Vote RED Remove Every double-standard-America-hating-Democrat!

  2. 20 GOP Senators (!) refuse to vote for ANY stimulus bill!

    They can’t spin this … the GOP isn’t fighting for average Americans.

    • @Travis Lamb Lamb dork??

    • @Ellen Laken so true and they should be ashamed the real problem is so many districts are gerrymandered so we need people to cross the isle n stop voting against their interest for party loyalty

    • This is a well planned action on trump’s part. exactly what you would expect of a sadist with power. Jerking around not only his enemies on wall street, but also his willing toadies. Got to see if they are still LOYAL to the mobster god they exalted.
      Any other set of republicans would ask him to resign.
      these guys are totally compromised, and reduced THEMSELVES to overpaid errand boys. they have to be voted out too.

    • tylerbrowne69 | October 7, 2020 at 7:03 PM | Reply

      Also, in the House, not a single republican congress members voted on the stimulus. It was all democrats bar one.

    • We all want our stimulus, so just pass the stimulus.

      I call it “Empire of the Criminal in Charge of Trump & Allies Special Administrative Region – TASAR (previously known as U.S.A.)”
      Trump stopped 2nd relief funds aimed for the common people, however, PLEASE READ my investigation report on this channel (“$3 Trillion US Stimulus Packages for COVID-19 – Who Profited & Who Lost?”) on how Trump distributed $3 TRILLION ($3,000,000,000,000) 1st Pandemic Relief Funds that his administration received to combat coronavirus [under CARES Act, Paycheck Act, and Coronavirus Preparedness Act]
      While majority of funds were transferred to big business owners, $100s of billions were paid against orders which were never filled for testing, PPE, contact tracing & virus spread containment, etc. That is why there are 215K deaths, 7.7M infected and 50M jobless!
      (PDF FORMAT of the report is liked in the comments section of the video report – there are more reports on the channel on Trump’s propaganda, conspiracy theories and financial corruption)

    The reason the President wants stand alone $1200 checks sent out, is so he can put his signature on them — so to the naive, it would appear that the money is coming from Donald Trump’s own generosity. It is another ploy to get votes.

    • Please stop calling him a “president”. He’s a “semi”wealthy criminal, that conned his way into the White House. That does NOT make him a “president”!

    • @Dave Schultz
      Trump has half a brain and you have none. 🤯

    • @TamTam Vercher
      The tax laws were written “by the wealthy, for the wealthy”, and they will not be changed any time soon!
      The only people that can take advantage of the loopholes in the tax laws, are the people that can afford to hire a tax specialist/accountant to do their taxes. The rest of us are left paying for their “free ride”! For centuries, the poor have unwillingly subsidized the rich!

      @Herb Nichols keep telling yourself that… I am not wealthy, but I am smart and I know how to comprehend what I read. You definitely got that backwards, the smart wrote it in hopes to keep no one from figuring it out… your almost right through, it you wanna stay rich you gotta be smart😉

    • TamTam Vercher | October 7, 2020 at 5:52 PM | Reply

      @Herb Nichols He is the President and until his is not I will continue to proudly call him my President, one of bravest patriots I know, especially knowing he is trying to save up from total new world order that if happens you might as well call us China no.2

  7. Trump is trying to buy votes!

  8. Hallie, great episode. fascinating to hear Doug Jones. at least he has convictions, is direct, and seems honest.

      Memmor you mean he should be convicted

    • Mike McIntyre | October 7, 2020 at 3:47 PM | Reply

      @Alex Hamilton You obviously don’t know Doug Jones. He’s been a straight shooter the 40 years that I have known him.

      Alabama lucked out two years ago. At last they have a Senator who is not a Trump sycophant or a child molester. He is not a progressive or a radical conservative. He cares about people and especially Alabamians.

  9. Exactly sir. Why are we more concerned about corporations over the people?

    _NOTE! This is an old style broadside not a “Tweet”. As this is not Twitter. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you are deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, read on._

    👉 *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!* 👈
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    _A Broadside_

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon:*

    👉 *His* fluency of falsehoods,
    👉 *His* fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉 *His* insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉 *His* deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉 *His* incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉 *His* open threat to decline a peaceful transfer of power should he lose his bid for reelection,
    👉 *His* inability to maintain discretion on social media _and_
    👉 *His* increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that:
    *President Donald Trump has indisputably forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government confrères in his charge that procure sensitive and secret knowledge of matters affecting national security they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there come, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *THIS SITUATION* is unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID!* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be _OUR_ remedy!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER!*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has contracted the highly contagious and potentially deadly virus “COVID-19”, and has carelessly and defiantly erranded himself with spreading same,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    *FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!*

    *THEREFORE:*
    *IN ORDER TO RENDER THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT FAMILIAR AND PLEASANT TO THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN TERRIBLE AND UNRECOGNIZABLE*

    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing.

    *AND IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT* tolerate any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United States or abroad by design or effect that suppresses, deters, delays, denies, manipulates, interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE AND REPLACE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

      (2) Sign on to YouTube and pull up the Comment you want. Because my Comment is so long, you switch your browser to Full Screen mode.

      (3) Now, take a screenshot framing only the body of the Comment – not the entire screen.

    • @Dave Schultz Dave, herd immunity doesn’t mean what it appears you think it means. Yes, at this point everyone in the US will be exposed to it, doesn’t mean that you cannot do anything but hope for the best.( wear a mask, keep your distance… and when available get inoculations – sound familiar?). Even then, there will be 2 to 6 million deaths under a “herd immunity” scenario. (You will know or be related to some of them.) Getting it and having only light response only helps on the second and subsequent rounds of the virus. And if you do survive there is a 40% chance you will have lingering conditions. Making you an easier victim the next round. It means the herd will survive – not you.
