    You don’t have to tell us how stupid trump is…we’ve been seeing it on a daily basis for 3 1/2 years now.

      @Shawn Corbin LMAO, Seth Rich is a debunked conspiracy theory. His parents even sued Fox News because the nut jobs wouldn’t stop spreading conspiracy theories. My God, are you honestly admitting you believed it? Let me guess, the Earth is Flat too, right?

    • @Shawn Corbin You write: Keep defending sexual predators,
      My response: I can show you a lawsuit against Epstein and Trump for tying down and raping a child..what you got on Biden..The Russian sympathizer did not work so now Trump supporters are having sick images going thru their head with him and children…fkn sick people..supporting a child molester by blaming others…just fkn sick

    • @Shawn Corbin those are all false statements

    • EVEN MORE STUPID: America continues to let him climb into the seat of power day after day!!
      UNBELIEVABLE!

      William H Music 2020 Oh well hey, I guess that’s that then. K folks, move along. Glory hole Bill says trump has been super successful. Guess we can just let him back in. Thanx Bill, that was close.

    They wouldn’t Gerry mander districts and close polling places otherwise

    • @Elmosweed trump has never had a “complete” thought.

    • @Elmosweed he’s already lost the senior vote bc of his inactions with corona..older ppl can very easily and legally mail in vote..esp if you are disabled..many older ppl are..or considered as such..a docs note is all u need if u don’t get ssdi..i didn’t but I’m on ssdi..my caregiver can mail in vote also..

    • @CherBear Thank you for voting…we must encourage everyone to vote anyway they can. You have pointed out some great options for those that cannot go to a polling place.

    • @MD P Not any thought. Can’t even take in information. He acts on impulse.

    • Michigan Democrat here and im voting by mail

  4. Vote Blue or our family and friends will be blue in the morgue😪😪

    • Football Nerd | July 3, 2020 at 12:05 PM | Reply

      Vote in advance or register to vote by mail. We must do everything we can to keep those lines short in November for those who are busy, we cannot allow Republican voter suppression tactics to defeat us. It’s literally life or death now.

    • @Football Nerd Agreed- Voter suppression and Trumps trademarked voting machines are his only chance at winning in 2020

    Everything we warned them about is happening and it is only the beginning.

  6. America knew Trunk was a narcissist before they elected him. Chaos surrounds the narcissist. How ya likin’ it now?

      Toward Treatise I heard it awhile back. It’s on pretty much any website except for maybe Fox I guess.

      Elmosweed idk democrats calling to pay for healthcare, student loans, and complete socialism is something to consider about the idea at least. And the history of the Obama administration spending, as the media silenced concerns over the swine flu from China as opposed to crashing the economy by at least the local representative authority of governors that the third world will suffer from.

    • Toward Treatise | July 3, 2020 at 3:54 PM | Reply

      Elmosweed wow I appreciate dems talking real, as the income of the poorest grew so well, and manufacturing, and the rich here in the USA, before a virus exploded from a city in China that creates viruses from bats, with a scientist and whistleblower that went missing, and as the rich can easily flee in globalism. Don’t forget globalism! Ask China about that for sure.

    • Toward Treatise | July 3, 2020 at 4:12 PM | Reply

      Elmosweed I mean all of us here in the US are the spoiled rich folk in the eyes of globalism.. nationalist freedom and personal driven legal reward for independence is what made that happen though. Anyone can do it… True story.

    • I’ve known Trump is a dirt bag since the late 70s, long before his so-called reality show really showed us what he is all about.

  7. America Go vote for blue 💙🙋‍♀️

    • Printagic Online | July 3, 2020 at 4:50 PM | Reply

      @Rod Putin put a price on the heads of our military heroes. Trump is owned by Putin so he won’t stand up for our troops. If your ok with a POTUS that will put his business interests over American soldiers than you shouldn’t call yourself an American patriot.

    • 😁🤷🏼‍♀️even life long republicans are voting blue

    • How are you going to vote when your Dead?

    • Montesa did you see the latest decree of the Supreme Court. They outright violated the 26th amendment of the constitution and every single conservative justice voted for it.

    • Montesa “Texas law permits voters over the age of 65 to request absentee ballots without difficulty. But most voters under the age of 65 are not allowed to vote absentee. During a pandemic election, that means that older voters — a demographic that has historically favored Republicans over Democrats — will have a fairly easy time participating in the November election. But younger voters will likely have to risk infection at an in-person polling site if they wish to cast a ballot.
      This arrangement is difficult to square with the 26th Amendment, which provides that “the right of citizens of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of age.”
      The Court’s order in Texas Democratic Party is subtle, but it most likely means that Texas will be able to deny or abridge the right to vote on account of age, at least during the November election.
      Last month, the conservative United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit blocked a trial judge’s order that would have allowed younger Texans to vote absentee. Although this Fifth Circuit order is not the appeals court’s last word on this case, it is quite unlikely that the plaintiffs in Texas Democratic Party will prevail before the Fifth Circuit, which is among the most conservative courts in the country.
      So those plaintiffs asked the Supreme Court to hear their case on an expedited basis. On Friday, the Supreme Court denied that request. As a practical matter, writes SCOTUSBlog’s Amy Howe, this refusal to expedite the Texas Democratic Party case “all but eliminated the prospect that the justices will weigh in on the merits of that dispute before the 2020 election in November.”
      Thus, even if the Supreme Court ultimately does decide that Texas’s age discrimination violates the 26th Amendment, that decision will almost certainly come too late to benefit anyone in November.”

  8. Of course he is played like a fool.
    He is very good at being a fool.

    • @Matt Thompson Posting from the basement in mommy’s house again?

    • Shawn Corbin | July 3, 2020 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      He’s even better at POSSUM. He will strike soon, so start screaming at the sky now. It’s coming! A glorious hammer is descending from the heavens, it’s going to be BIBLICAL.

    • @Shawn Corbin Lol!!!! Thats the dumbest comment I’ve seen all day. Congrats. Possum. LOLOLOL!!!!

    • @Don Nairn
      That is the only thing Trump is successful at, being played like a fool.

    • & you keep him as your foolish president?
      Now thats FOOLISH!!

  9. Worst president ever!!!😁🇺🇸

    • @Rob Ceriani I didn’t say there is no rise in crime anywhere, now you’re just starting to sound triggered. You seem to be wanting to equate some crimes that you see on television with ‘skyrocketing crime’ and getting really upset that I point out that a few instances aren’t indicative of the overall trend. And STILL you have not tried to present any ‘skyrocketing crime’ statistics. Did homicides in the US go up by a dramatic amount? No. Burglaries? No. Assault? No.

      I’m sitting here, looking at statistics of crime rates for various crimes in the US and not seeing anything going up dramatically while you tell me that a few protests getting out-of-hand equates to a high crime rate.

    • @d2.r76.421 all the rioting and assaults didn’t go up? All the looting and burgleries didn’t go up? Stop it. And it isn’t a few instances. Its hundreds! But one thing that IS definite. The ‘defund police’ angle of Democrats, will be their downfall. Because all people will need to see is 1 instance……then to hear Defund Police..lol. Trump is a lock

    • @Rob Ceriani Did assaults go up? You didn’t check, you wouldn’t know.
      Did murders go up? You didn’t check, you wouldn’t know.
      Did burglaries go up? Arson? White collar crimes? You didn’t check, *you don’t know*

    • @Rob Ceriani Interesting how you want to lay all the blame on local governments for any made-up increases you imagine, but think it will help trump. What is trump going to do? And if can do something, why didn’t he do it? That’s quite the catch-22, good luck.

    • yet you STILL let him lead your country?
      I see a PROBLEM!!!

  10. “GOP Wants As Few People To Vote As Possible” Why is this a revelation? It has been Republican policy since 1980. It’s just worse now.

      @Lynn Rolaf Newsflash! As much as you would like to believe that you are the majority you are not. Your news source that is decreasing day by day leads you blind sheep to think you represent America. Looks like another person shedding a lot of November tears. Wake up

    • Jeff Chrapcynski | July 3, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      @Rosalyn Jeffery If you truly believe that you are extremely uneducated and dumb. Admit it you are afraid. you want to manipulate the vote. Do you not have confidence in your candidate? Of course you do not. Who in their right mind would vote for Joe Biden.?

    • Jeff Chrapcynski | July 3, 2020 at 5:55 PM | Reply

      @Lynn Rolaf after reevaluating the situationI I came to the conclusion that after more Democrats voted than are registered it will take about two years to figure out. Donald Trump will still be president beyond 2022 and then we will have another election. I am all in favor of voting by mail

    • M. Cockcroft | July 3, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      @Mike w Voting should be mandatory for every American citizen of voting age.

  12. Jean Bergeron | July 3, 2020 at 12:06 PM | Reply

    À humer is right…Trump is the weakest president ever..even worst than Nixon. Just like Nixon, this president is dangerous to Americans.

    • Clayton Gunter | July 3, 2020 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      That’s absolutely right! So what are you going to do about it? Either vote in person, or walk your mail out to the postal carrier in person! YES! It’s just that important now! But do more than just vote! Find other people, get together in groups (masked, of course!) Follow guides and simple common sense to being around others. Help those who cannot get to the polls to make sure everyone votes! America cannot and will not tolerate attacks on our democracy from Putin/trump! Do wear a mask anytime you leave home, and have plenty to wear just like any other article of clothing. Do wash your hands as often as needed or when in doubt? Wash! Save yourself and this great country of ours or much worse will happen!

    • Jean Bergeron Trump is much worse than Nixon. Also he quit, something Trump will never do. He’ll just try to lie his way through it . He’ll never admit he made a mistake. He needs to be a man and quit. But he’s just a little man child.

    • ​@MP Thingy I admire your candor a great deal and the courage of honorable conservatives to stand against Trump. That being said, and I do understand . . . but your taking an adversarial stance with Ken White on this page is out of line and not productive, and I do see why you are offended but you are not allowing for the frustration that affects us all.

      I submit these are extreme and unique times. Look at yourself. I am confident you remain a patriotic conservative unlike Trump, and we all know who and what he is and isn’t. But you are a conservative working to elect a Democrat. How weird is that? Ken’s ire as you well know is directed at Trump supporters, and yes he is offensive and arguably out of line by attacking the entire GOP but HE IS MOSTLY CORRECT and you know it.

      So you two kids just settle down and don’t make me come up there . . . kidding of course, but dividing us is Trump’s goal and he succeeded with you two. I am addressing you and not him for a reason I will not state that might offend Ken, who I hope reads this. So quit your snowflake behavior and do what you are trying to do.  We are all screwed if we do not unite against this real and present danger to our democracy.

      We are all a little thin skinned right about now. I am not defending Mr White, merely challanging you to take the lead and take the high road, and my criticism is meant to be respectful. It takes a man of ethics and honor to know when to leave the pack as you have done. That shows integrity sadly lacking in most of the GOP and I applaud you and extend you my sincere condolences for the loss of your once honorable party.  

      Please take no offense, because I am not inclined to argue the point. Do what you will but if you can do the right thing about Trump, perhaps you can forgive a brother who means well but perhaps has crossed a line out of frustration and unfocused passion.  

      Namaste.

    • @MP Thingy less than 10% of canada would vote for the republican party

    • yet America STILL lets him lead their country?
      I would call that DANGEROUS!!

    Trump himself in a recent interview said “If all Americans are able to vote, you will never see another Republican voted into office, ever again”.

  14. Vote on Nov 3,2020! If you want this to END Vote them Out! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 Let your vote be heard.

  15. Putin knows something about trump we don’t know, it’s time that we see trumps tax report.

      @Badgersj I live in Belgium. 200 cultures. no racisme on the streets. A whilte European.

    • @barcelonnette Exactly. We all have our own problems at different times, but they can be overcome or worked round until they’re no longer important.

    • barcelonnette | July 3, 2020 at 4:48 PM | Reply

      @Badgersj Yes because they are divided with political leaders. Let’s pray for them. AMEN. Or something else.

    • @barcelonnette It’s just completely ridiculous, because compared with what we’ve got to deal with (I’m British), there’s nothing much between their political parties. It’s just really a case of which lot can produce the most capable leadership team. Well, we know now (if we didn’t before!) that that’s not whoever chose Trump!

    • Most of America will be Dead by November!

  18. I will vote ,don’t care how are were I have to go. I’m sick of the clown show that lives in WH. Once a independent,now all blue.

  19. He was more articulate and coherent in 8 minutes than Trump could hope to be in 10 years.

    Why is Trump supporting Putin?
    Here’s why: Because he knows if he loses the election, he’s definitely going to jail. So by supporting Russia, he’s hoping Putin will give him safe passage into Russia and protect him.
