    This is disturbing but not unexpected dealing with a clearly unstable Putin-compromised POTUS

  2. I bet Trump is going to do something impeachable again after he is impeached. He won’t be able to help it

    • Jode G Thats why I said,DIVIDE his Charges and Prepare to do Multiple Impeachment hearings

      he is the type to do just that, the more he get away with the more corrupt he becomes,

    • @Jack Parker Jack, I don’t know who you’re replying to, but if you’re trying to get them to vote for President Trump, you probably didn’t make that happen. Flies/honey. lol Anyway, you’re not going to get me to vote for him, but we don’t have to be evil to each other. Seems to me it just makes things worse.

      @Forrest Trump watching this from outside your country is hilarious. It’s actually true about the ‘UNEDUCATED AMERICAN’.
      Don’t get me wrong. Idiots here voted for a blackface. Which your democrats call racist but for some reason liberal/socialists here don’t think so.
      Liberal/democrats/socialists are all mentally disturbed.
      Screaming and yelling to make a point in lunacy.

    • ihave35cents.  you mean cheats again! WAKE up!

    What a time to be alive. Americans have a president in office who they cannot trust. That’s why Macron used reverse sociology to get him to voice his support for NATO and it worked.

      Russian troll alert👀🚨🚨🚨!!!

    • @ihave35cents Ok that whole BS story of a Jaguar for your supposed wife yea it’s delusional but semi amusing. What’s not amusing is claiming to be AN AMERICAN COMBAT VETERAN with a PURPLE HEART. We WERE NOT AT WAR WITH IRAQ IN 1987!!!!!

    • @ihave35cents there’s nothing wrong with having dreams and fantasies

    • @ihave35cents If you want To in 2020, move to Russia immediately because that’s what yo will get: corruption, oppression, poverty.

  4. Why give one sick person that much power? The power to destroy so much good. Get him impeached and removed whilst there are still choices.

  5. Trump is trying to destroy america, removing us from NATO and isolating us is the way to do it

    • @Ronnie Baker Dictator wants to be, the correct term. Already installed an authoritarian style, from that it takes not long to become a dictator. Cult, well the MAGA followers remind me of the followers from Jim Jones. By that, a lot. And Jim Jones and his cult were deadly.

    • @Stone Men you prove that it is with actual facts other then you just saying it is. People who actually use their own brain dont need to rely on the media to put the puzzle together.

    • @deamonomic I already did you fool.

    • Eamon O'Connell | December 12, 2019 at 8:40 PM | Reply

      NATO. What are they needed for?

  6. Must be why a Russian was just in the WH during this time. Vlad is giving his puppet instructions before next election. They really were on the nose about destroying America from within.

    • @Bono Budju Go to the mental hospital, go directly to the mental hospital, do not collect socialist support services, go to the mental hospital…

    • @J Batson Blah blah blah. Bad enough there’s a traitor in the White House without having to put up with the Trump terminally stupid squad members.

    • @Bono Budju Directly to the mental hospital with you too! If he’s a traitor it’s to you and I I Hope he’s done the absolute most damage to your life as possible.. That’s what he was voted in to do by me and the state of Texas.. So Hope you wake up in a mental health facility half way through Barron Trump’s second term!! The more we see people like you and how you act the more we like the president.

  7. Can you imagine 4 more years of Trump’s destruction, America, as we know it will be over.

  8. Trump is a full blown traitor to America, the only people who don’t get that are the moronic Dixie peckerwoods who go to his rallies

    • Lets not forget that Trump lost the popular vote by around 3 million votes. He unfortunately won the electoral collage vote.

      @Judith Aldridge wow. You haven’t a clue about anything. You state your personal fact, gets debunked, and you still ramble on about the exact same think.
      That’s could stupid.
      You don’t care about facts when your hatred is more.

    • tetapunui
      Actually REPUBLICANS who are complicit/allowing/enabling this damage to continue are traitors!

    • James Dunn He didn’t get the MAJORITY of the votes!

  9. So…. there is bipartisan support to protect the country from Ttump. But, R’s continue to support him *despite knowing it is necessary to protect the country from his actions.*

  10. All roads lead to tRump’s lenders at Deutsch Bank

  11. He will not go to Congress just like every other time he was supposed to before. He does what he wants when he wants and Republicans allow him to break the law.

    • @Jeremy Backup dude put your crack pipe down quit watching CNN highly highly funded buy AT&T

    • @Penny Munger The Republicans are using Trump as a test to see just how much one of them can pretend to be King to seal the minority agenda.

    • George Washington | December 12, 2019 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      Penny, as the POTUS, he doesn’t have to abide by Congressional subpoena. He is not subject, as the executive branch, to the legislative branch. Follow me, if Congress wants to have the POTUS under oath they can do so in the Senate trial which will allow them that. The Congressional subpoena is a trap but if it’s a trial in the Senate mediated by the SC then no, your Dem Congress cannot use parlor tricks. I am quite surprised that so many of you dems, that claim to be patriots, would want any elected official to have political tricks used against them. You are for the country over party…yes?

  12. How is it not blatantly obvious that Trump is a Russian asset and he’s just doing everything in his power to destroy America you got to be blind deaf and dumb not the sea and realizes this.

    • Because there is no evidence, that’s why. See how that works? Evidence is facts, not your feelings, not your hatred, not your assumptions. It’s 3+ years of investigating and no evidence and still you loons fume and froth and claim that it’s “obvious”. You’re a sad bunch. Clearly you’ve all been ravaged by TDS, but don’t worry…you only have to hold out until Trump finishes that 2nd term. What will be left of you?

    • @W Peters There are always the emoluments violations. X amount of dollars due to diverted flights and the many etcetera..

    • @W Peters It’s you who is delirious thinking trump is mr. goody two shoes. The evidence of Trumps wrong doings have been known for his entire adult life. He’s a cheater, a liar and a crook. Wake up!

    • John Bouchard He is working in his own interests, yes. A lot of what he does is impulsive and then stubborn. He really wants to run the country as if it is a reality show.

  13. Putin has a “to do ” list for Trump. Leaving NATO and allowing Russia to take Ukraine are high on that list.

    • @Sheik Yo Booty ~ Dump never really embraced that pesky constitution which is all about his duties to every American. He treats the powers as his right to rule Americans. He has an employer, the american people, and his job is to improve their lives.

      @Mike C
      This is a putin installed criminal enterprise folks, brought to you by the fans of duck dynasty and honey boo boo 👎

      The global security threat is a pussygrabber!

    Said this for 2 years…he is endangering NATO,G7, Europe, betraying allies and following Putins agenda

  16. Shango Sankofa | December 12, 2019 at 5:50 AM | Reply

    Wow! Just wow! A president that’s a clear and present danger to the nation and the world and he STILL has American supporters?!?! WOW!!! This is madness!!

    Trump is the most Destructive Commander this Country has Ever Seen.

  18. This is PROOF that the GOP knows about Trump’s stupidity.

  19. Our lawmakers are basically saying that they have to defend America from Trump. Let that sink in for a moment.

    • George Washington | December 12, 2019 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      Hmmm there was a time in history were a group of men sounded the same chant against one man…then lead him into the Senate house, drew knives and stabbed him 27 times. It appears our lawmakers want to do the same.

    • Except the Republican Party which is complicit by enabling this harm/danger to continue!
