  1. Trump is trying to bribe people for their votes by promising to eliminate payroll taxes.

  2. I have a ‘highway contract route,’ All the people I wok with have noticed it…
    Nothing all week long, then 4- days worth on Thursday…
    that was NEVER the case, for 12 years previous
    they are deliberately, with for thought, delaying the mail… the trump is enemy, not only to this nation, to all peoples of this earth

    • All the people you WOK with are in china. Bot.

    • @Matt Thompson nope. Just a bad typist.

    • Stand strong.

    • 35% of the country is a registered democrat. 24 % registered republican. Look it up. 40% swing vote and over 1/2 of those vote democrat. Nope, no one is leaving the Democrat party. I hear people say it a lot so I looked it up. Washington state 11 wins for the dems in the primary 2 wins for the republicans. I even know people who did not vote in the primary that say they will only vote in the presidential race. It is your civic duty to look up and fact check.

      If we get out of this mess I don’t want to see a Republican president for a very long time. They need to tear down that trump base. Go luck with that.

    • These Republicans has been doing this for a long time . The reason why you hearing the American people want to know

    Another imaginary phone call. Goes well with the executive order magic bean. Trump truly lives in a fairy tale lala land.

      @Doomsurfer – Are you trying to top the stupidity of your last post? The entire GOP is a mafia – EVERYTHING they do is a scam – without exception. That’s why they all got behind a lifelong swindler, grifter, and con artist – THE most corrupt president EVER. I scrape stuff off my shoes with more brainpower than you…

    • On Fox news around 10am EST they were commenting on how Trump is trying to get with the Democrats to negotiate but they won’t contact him back. In an attempt to prove this they played the clip where Schumer says “he didn’t call, Pelosi didn’t call”. Fox has no shame.

      You are a SCOUNDREL and a lying, unamerican POS.

  5. Everyone in this administration is in over his or her head by design. It’s the “what, who me” defense.

    • Democrats are trying to overwhelm the US Post Office with the 350+ million plus General Mail in Voting Scam. They know there will be lost and found ballots like what happened in NJ in May. They also know it would take weeks and months to get the votes counted. Democrats know they’re going to lose so they’re trying to corrupt the vote. They have nothing to lose because they were already caught in 2016 using the US Government Intelligence apparatus to spy on Americans and the Trump campaign which we call Obama Gate. Obama Gate will drop when the Democrats Summer of Love in Portland and Chicago is over just in time for the October surprise!

    • @Doomsurfer hook, line and sinker. How did it taste going down?

    • Doomsurfer I really think you should go back on your meds. And a laxative would be helpful as well because you are undeniably full of s—t!

    • you mean just like that POS admin that was in office from 2008 to 2016. Oh yea, it was the OH phuqin Bummber admin good ol days days of a communist but lover and the mighty feel the hair on my legs dude you all think is working for this country. Now that’s some really scary shyt.

    • middle line you are as comprehensible as Trump. Almost.

  6. Trump sues AMAZON Suit alleges they overcharged Trump for Melania’s shipping container

    • Hekat the Evil B-tch | August 10, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

      J Dawg What’s scary, is I know your comment is meant to be humorous & it is. But, when the possibility exists POTUS may accept demons & aliens as legitimate talking points because of a way off-kilter ‘doctor’ he believes in, nothing he does can be surprising. I wouldn’t be surprised if he initiated such a lawsuit because he happened upon your comment. He’s having his staff look for the box now…. Lol…

      “Be best”

      – Melania Trump 😂 🤣 🤣

  7. Been calling it for years, the moment oligarch Trump tries to interfere with the election while he’s in charge, the moment he attacks the post office his candidacy, his nomination is nullified. It is law, it’s called treason. He’s committed it more than once since he went down that escalator in 2015. Any vote for Donald Trump is a vote against America

      “Treason” defined: the crime of betraying one’s country.

      See you in November. 👍👍

    • @Phinneas Bluster Attention, anonymous ignoramus, your hero is a con man and a grifter who is guilty of treason. Go ahead, drink the coolaid. He’s going to jail.

      No, I’m quite sure Putin’s orders are direct and not up to interpretation. Trump is too stupid for subtlety. The one who is programming him and leading him by the nose is Steve Miller trying to institute his Fourth Reich.

    Trump is such a great leader, he can’t even get the post office in shape, even with his buddy running it,after more than 3 1/2 years of being in charge, he doesn’t belong in office if he can’t.

  10. because trump is surrounded by many yes men, he enjoys the attention just like a dictator, you can tell by his body language.

    • @Doomsurfer and your sycophantic friend. Whether you like it or not, whether you are so blind that you cannot see it for what it is, Trump is doing Putin’s bidding. He is turning our democracy into an autocracy. You can hold the flag all you want, but what are you doing to uphold the principles for which it stands? Nothing. Voting by mail is legal and safer during a pandemic. It also makes it harder for other countries to interfere in OUR election. We haven’t always had computers to give us instantaneous results. 100 years ago the people voted without them and probably with less fraud. So far, the only blatant instances of mail fraud were in North Carolina and perpetrated by the Republican party. You have bought the entire Trump line about this type of voting. Trump is a crook who will do everything he can to win, legal or not. If indeed you care about this country’s principles, democracy, and freedom, l suggest you rethink your standards. They are more in line with an autocracy than a democracy.

    • @Doomsurfer My compliments, you are the first Russian troll that managed to post without
      grammatical mistakes, although the actual content is the usual rubbish of course.
      Those FSB/KGB instructors are getting better aren’t they, they should after trying for 60 years…

    • @Doomsurfer Yeh lets use Russia instead.

      FOZZ ROSS And I thought it was his comb-over that gave him away…

      But, you are probably right. I can’t begin to imagine how warped Tr*mp’s brain must be by now. What’s terrible is his ‘crazy’ is contagious… Tr*mp followers seem to believe being profoundly ignorant of facts is the making of the ‘new intellectual’…

    • What a stupid statement.

  11. I wonder how many t’rump supporters in rural areas would die if their medications sent through the mail stopped arriving? 🤔

    • Robert Shorthill | August 10, 2020 at 8:09 PM | Reply

      There won’t be hundreds of thousands of mail – ins overwhelming ” THE” post office. They are just like any other mail. They get sent to your county election office. They are varified, opened, and counted, county by county. Results are sent to the state, where they are also tabulated as to the winners of the voters choices. Now, the ELECTORAL COLLEGE is a different matter. It is an out of date system in this day and age and should be done away with, but that’s another topic for future discussion

    • @Birdy Watchin Excellent advice. I asked my postal carrier how early I should get my ballot in. “Yesterday” was his answer. And I haven’t even received one yet.

    • add to that these same supporters being unemployed without any health coverage.

    • @Doomsurfer Troll. I’ve seen copying and pasting these comments all over YouTube. TROLL.

    • Doomsurfer watch much fox? Listen much Rightwing radio?
      The only one afraid of losing is trump and the GOP which is why they’re trying to do everything to steal this election. Funny how before it was the GOP that loved mail voting because many were military service personnel but now that there’s more evidence that there’s a big blue wave that wants to vote trump and the gop out. Now it’s a concern for something bad. The only reason things will go wrong is because trump’s appointed puppet will make sure it’s riddled with intentional dysfunction to be one of the many other dirty tricks trump and the gop have plan to steal the election

  12. Another Trump appointee over his head ….they’re stacking up like chord wood. We are witnessing a President and an administration who are determined to do all they can to disrupt the November election. They don’t even hide it anymore. 😳

    • @Doomsurfer Go away TROLL

    • true

    • @Doomsurfer Flynn the guy who pleaded guilty twice or Russia who has now admitted to helping Trump get elected.
      You live in a conspiracy world that was created to detract from the truth and makes you feel important like you are in
      the know. It is a trick used on uneducated idiots. Yes, Obama spied but never used it to stop trump getting elected but
      allowed hilaries emails to come out affecting her chances at getting elected, yes you are gullible and crazy. So far all
      I have seen is heaps and heaps of republicans get indicted and quite a few go-to jail including trumps personal lawyer
      who is now testifying to trumps corruption, so wake up and see a doctor.

    • Look at Trump’s behavior towards the American people and the pandemic over the last six months. Think about this… He’s using the virus against the American people to suppress the vote. Let Covid-19 do the work. No mask, no leadership, no problem it will all go away. More infections, create more fear, fewer Democrat voters at the polls. Break the voter mail-in ballot process create more angry Republicans to go to the polls. Republican senate how could YOU allow this man to do this to us? WE TRUSTED YOU, SENATORS…

    As a disabled vet, I’m terrified this may be the last time Americans choose who is president. We will find troops when we go to vote. The president willl have millions of ballots seized and never be counted. This is becoming a dictatorship using fascist tactics.

    • ZQAN Trumps economic numbers are facts and they help everyone.

    • @Boston Guy Trump’s economic number are the worst in history at the moment, LOL. He inherited a booming economy
      with 74 months straight of growth and job creation from Obama. You know the guy who took us out of the great recession
      and left a booming economy. Trump just lies and destroys, you really should use fact-checking sites, the stock market did
      better under Obama too. I could keep going but you obviously don’t have a real clue.

    • ZQAN LMFAO!!! Bye.

      I call this, “America, Chapter 45, The Stupid Years

    • So postal workers who literally meet and enter more buildings than teachers are essential workers and there must be more of them? They go from home to home, pick up various covids, touching mailboxes, bring them back to their family, but kids who stay in the same classroom should not? Teachers who are the future of the education of the nation, schools who care for millions of kids who cannot afford to stay at home all day long, schools who allow adults to keep a job rather than sit home unemployed and babysit, teachers in schools who prevent the economy from being hurt — they’re not essential. Teachers are not essential. Let’s let post office mailmen and mailwomen run from home to home – because they are essential and they keep it clean. They won’t spread covid. They keep it clean. Teachers are dirty with all those kids around them. They keep it clean.Thanks.

    • And decades to recover from!

    • MilkCow go get an education and come back when you actually know what you are talking about.

  15. It will take generations to repair the damage to America caused by Trump.

  16. It’s what happens when ya get a president that only wants yes men around him.

    Trump is sabotaging the US ..If a civilian messes with the Post Office that’s a felony…If trump does it is business as usual….

  19. Trump is setting it up so that he later can say “I told you so.” Even if you’re a Republican through and through, this year you need to make an exception.
