    *”If everyone voted, republicans would never win an election.” –Donald Trump*

    • Doug Butler why haven’t they had these to begin with….they’ve been having fires for years.NOT DOING THEIR JOB….VOTE THEM OUT

    • Dead Fan 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    • @Higgs Boson – Doug hasn’t been ‘paying attention’. 😏
      So far (and allowing for ‘as-of-yet-announced indictments’)…
      #45✳’s *’accrued’ FOUR disbarred lawyers (and ‘counting’), SIX former employees who are CONVICTED felons, DOZENS of…’unplanned resignations’ AND, at last count, FIVE administration members with “Contempt Citations” NOW ON their resumes.*
      And we won’t *EVEN mention* #45✳’s *numerous* ‘financial fiascos’… 💸😏💸
      But *we will* remind *everyone of THIS fact:*

      a conga line of CLOWNS.

  4. It would be good if there was a representative from Nevada there to argue for the other side.

  5. Election fraud has been proven, and the fraudsters were Republicans.

      You ever been to a caucus?…No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.

      – Joe Biden
      To young female voter.

    • @Allex Gibbs :). On this, I must say. I really don’t see any conservative values in Trump, in any form what so ever. Nor do I see a strongman. He strawman’s everything and everyone. So my friend…I guess we can agree to disagree respectfully, eh. :).
      Thanks for sharing your perspective.

    • @J H first ever president to attend a pro life rally/meeting. Moved the US embassy in Palestine to jerusalem after the last 5 presidents promised to do so. First president in my life to make 4 or 5 promises and literally do every single one of them within the first 2 years of his first term. Secured the border and started building the wall. Tax cuts. Overhauled trade deals with china canada and mexico. Again the Palestine embassy. Strengthened our military while at the same time not getting us into war and even bring troops home.

    • @J H to me trump is an inner city democrat from the 80s. And his ideals never changed. But like I said. Republicans have been forced to chang and move more towards the left as a whole while Democrats move even further left. Like reagan said “I didnt leave the democratic party, the democratic party left me”

  6. Damn rethugs get on my every nerve. The only fraud that’s ever been committed was committed by the rethuglikklan party.

  7. Hogan Gidley, – is the mad magazine guy – surely

  8. Hogan’s the only Fraud I see.

    They’re just making up excuses left and right pulling stuff out of you know where 🤔 💯 😏

    • Out of their asses?

    • …and that is why all their excuses stink. 😖

    • SusanBailey AmazingEstate | August 8, 2020 at 7:21 PM | Reply

      CNN does make excuses. You’re right. For racist crazy Biden. Trump is going to win huge this time.

      And how dare Orange Man Bad fight for fair elections? The only hope Democrats have is to sow mass confusion. This has gotten ludicrous.

    • Joy Phillips | August 8, 2020 at 7:26 PM | Reply

      @Lorrie yeah sure that’s why Biden hired 600 litigators, to challenge the results. Keep up with the news.

    • @SusanBailey AmazingEstate ? how is trump fighting for fair elections? he is actively defunding the postal service.

  10. “We tried it in Wisconsin and it worked”. How many cases of Covid were traced to that primary? This clown needs to lick a doorknob.

    Trump on Ghislaine Maxwell: ‘I wish her well, frankly’

    • Insomnia Pictures | August 8, 2020 at 3:23 PM | Reply

      Maybe he still believes in due process of the law, and institution that certain Democrats seem intent to destroy.

    • @Maxime De Winter why would a woman hang on to a nasty dirty dress with come all over it ? She probably wiped her mouth off with it.
      I don’t know about you, but most women wash a nasty dirty dress.
      She keeps it in her dresser for MONTHS !!

      @J. Noble Okay, that is not an argument. You are just namecalling. Do you deny the fact that Donald Trump has accomplished a lot while in office and made significant improvements to our country?

    • he is trolling her, you and the MSM who refuses to describe Epstein’s case as a murder. You ppl keep saying “conspiracy theories”, “debunked” or “no basis.” These same ppl REFUSE to cover Ghislaine’s confession/interrogation. Nothing from CNN,MSNBC,NYTs or Hollywood, Dems, etc… NOTHING.

  12. A desperate attempt by the Trump campaign to undermine the US postal service. The Trump campaign has zero credibility.

  13. I actually enjoy watching reporters questioning this type of rhetoric…and find it fascinating how far these people being interviewed go in attempts to justify their hypothetical views. Facts just don’t seem to matter. Like they think people don’t fact check for themselves….and will blindly believe them, just because they throw it out there.

  14. Washingtonian here, and I can affirm that we’ve used Mail in voting for all of our elections. Never had a problem. So this whole claim is BS. This is sure gonna be one hell of an election.

    • Boris Johnson made the same bullshit argument a while back in the UK as an argument in favour of requiring ID to vote. In the UK 2017 General Election there was 1 case of fraud. 40+ million votes. He just doesn’t want the poor to vote because it means more votes for his party.

      @TalesOfWar I had to re-register to vote because I moved house a few weeks ago, and because I transposed two digits of my NI number, had to jump through a whole load of hoops to prove my identity. Birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce papers, utility bills, council tax forms, you name it! Because I don’t drive, or have a passport (expired, never renewed, sadly ill-health prevents travel abroad), they wanted a lot of proof. I’m surprised I didn’t have to tell them my blood group and inside leg measurement! I’ve voted by post ever since my work hours made it difficult to get to the polling station, and never once not voted. Why BJ wants to make the process ridiculously long-winded, god knows. I did finally get my stuff sorted out, and and am back where I should be, on the electoral register, with a postal vote. I’ll be more careful with my numbers in future!
      It’s such a simple way to vote, and I’m surprised that a country as large as America doesn’t embrace it full-on. If trump expects fraud, it doesn’t say much for the American postal service, which I always understood to be excellent, and highly praised. Hey, you postal workers in the States! How do you feel, if your president doesn’t trust you? Because I would be spitting feathers!

  15. The GOP can cry all they want. They don’t matter. This is a matter of states rights. DC doesn’t control the voting process. Go cry at FOX

    A head in the sand mentally ??
    Really , kinda like the virus will
    Magically disappear !!
    Oh ok

    • and once it magically disappears, what will you say? “Oh, well whatever! Trump is still dUmB and bAd!”
      What did you say when Trump said we needed a wall for security?
      What did you say when Trump said Obama spied on his campaign?
      What did you say when Trump called the Russia-collusion a HOAX?
      What did you say when Trump said Hydroxinchloroquine works?
      What did you say when Trump said he would make our economy boom?

      Everyone laughed at him. Have you ever admitted he was correct?

      You all forget how right he was and how wrong you were. You ppl are what we call HATERS. You don’t stop hating. You will always move to the next thing to hate/criticize and will NEVER admit he is/was correct.

    Wow he is getting DESPERATE…
    and hes projecting again, all the things he’s worried about are the things hes doing or going to do.

    Translation: We can’t cheat if people vote by mail.

    • GlassOpper11b | August 8, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      @Gary Zero credibility on that statement,, coming from another conservative.
      Just sayin, you look pretty desperate.

      @PKay Gray wow that’s exactly what I was thinking 🤔😮😵

    • lmfaooo.. Like one of the most brilliant men said: are you dumb, stupid, or dumb, huh?

      Vote-by-mail has a horrendous record/history. Just google “NYC congressional race chaos.”

  19. Trumps legacy: “Lies made, lies kept”

  20. There is zero proof that mail in voting is rife with fraud. He’s lying about Nevada. He’s lying about proof…..he, like Trump and all his minions, are liars.

    • @Eric Swartzmiller It’s still post-marked. You are incorrect.

    • Eric Swartzmiller | August 8, 2020 at 8:47 PM | Reply

      @Carl Saganyou are wrong! post mark irregularities are the subject here. Maybe YOU should do a little more research before commenting!!!

    • @Eric Swartzmiller You said “pre-paid postage is not post-marked.” You are wrong. Prepaid postage is still post marked. And that only matters for 12 states that prepay postage in the first place. You are absolutely, and without question, wrong.

    • Eric Swartzmiller | August 8, 2020 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      @Carl Sagan NOT here to argue just SIMPLY Google the FACTS about post mark irregularities and have a nice day!!!

    • @Eric Swartzmiller Who’s arguing? You’re wrong, and I’m simply telling you that. I’m not “arguing” anything. What you said it entirely incorrect – the post office does indeed post-mark post-paid mail items. If you are now trying to change you post and say “sometimes there are irregularities” then so what? Who cares?
