    • @Chewie Knievel Too many Trump supporters really do have the intellect and maturity of not-too-bright 16-year-olds. You can find them everywhere: old men in seedy bars who claim they could have been in the NFL except for some imaginary knee injury; or that they’d be millionaires today except for having been cheated out of their lucky break, probably by some minority or immigrant. And all the while extolling the virtues of personal responsibility they have never themselves practiced or acknowledged.

    • @Rigo the kid If I only had a nickel for every lie a Trump supporter has said …

    • @Will Black It allows them to blame their numerous personal failures on others. Just as Trump does.

    • @Chadillac Bill Barr, Trump’s lackey Attorney General said there was NO Voter Fraud of any Consequence. Well except for the Trump voter in Pennsylvania whose dead mother voted with him for Trump.

    • @stray fiftynine u might wanna look at congressmans death just happened, strange fox news comments disabled, say covid but his heart they are saying gave out..with no underlying conditions. Im not one for reaches in the dark, but at this point im just going on gut feelings that strange happenings are afoot. Why does it feel like we are in communist china all day everyday. Next thing trump will die in 2 yrs and biden will die in office.

  3. The country is falling apart…and these people want to play games… shameful😞🤬🤔

      @RoadTripA1A Dem play games? Really? Republicans are the ones playing games. He lost because he is the worst President in US history EVER! Trump and all u insane clown posse need to accept your loss… You all need therapy or something because something is seriously wrong with you.

    • @Beezer D.B. too late 😂😂😂

    • Caroline Hicks | January 2, 2021 at 9:22 PM | Reply

      @RoadTripA1A and btw the Dems are the ones fight to give American a fair stimulus. Republicans don’t give a crap about Americans families struggling to pay mortgage/rent or that they are starving! U have the odasicty to point fingers at Dems when your party only cares about not making Trump mad and keeping the rich, rich. Shame on your party…

    • @stray fiftynine That’s because they had none to offer and under court law “they have to tell the truth so help me god”. His attorneys cannot lie in court and take a chance to lose their BAR license. Why do you think the Supreme Court is not even considering it ALL 9 justices? Because there is no evidence to prove fraud. All they are do is a dog and pony show to the public and make money on those who donated to the lost cause. Trump and his people have made hundreds of millions of dollars out of this. They are go to milk this cash cow for every drop which is destroying the fabric of this country and having its citizens attack each other. We are in troubling times and it doesn’t matter which side you are on at this point. 😕

    • @#NOTMYPRESIDENT #RESIST WTF

  4. More concern over staying in office than upholding the constitution.
    Vote them out.

    • @billycarson Incoherent. Take your meds.

      @Gregg Zillges So you are ok with an illegitimate election and a pro china president who is a racist cheating in an election.

    • @Kommon Cents – Did you expect the courts to dismiss with the term, “I’m afraid for my career and life.”?? Why the hell does saying “without merit” mean there’s actually no merit? There’s a mountain of merit.

    • @Kommon Cents How is a judge handing a victory to Trump disenfranchising voters? They voted, didn’t they?

    • @red rum you know shiner!. too bas so few rant about that truth!!. 🖖

  5. Yep republicans are officially a cult

    • @James Mckellar They’ve arrested several people for voter fraud to bad they were all TRUMP voters who were trying, but of course failed, to cheat! They can’t even do that right!

      @James Mckellar It’s a great shame none of this overwhelming ‘hard’ evidence was presented to a single court during those 60 cases in federal court which were all dismissed because there was no evidence of electoral fraud. Even Guiliani said his case wasn’t alleging fraud when confronted by a federal judge in court in Pennsylvania!

      @Graham Campbell Well if that’s the case then its very odd my friend.

    This mess is costing Americans. The government would have spent money better helping needy Americans.

      @S Mikell What is the Republican Party doing for Donald Trump? No, really? I do not understand your post. Name three things the GOP is doing specifically for Donald Trump. I see all he has done for America: Increased jobs, improved the economy with record-breaking Stock market results, established peace in at least two very dangerous regions of the earth, prevented (without war) Kim Jung Un from continuing his threats to nuke America, return American servicemen to their homes from war-torn countries such as Afghanistan (why are we fighting there again? Oh, yeah, that was Obama’s war.) This is a shortlist of the many things he has done as President of the United States to strengthen and uplift America. And he is not even being paid to do it as he donates his “pay” back to the government. He has been leading the USA in a positive direction since day one of his Presidency. He does this because he loves the USA, as do I (and I am sure you do too). But making a baseless comment like your comment and not providing any support is not a fair or even smart thing to do. So, really, tell me three things that the GOP has done for Donald Trump. I am really interested in your POV on this subject.

    • @Pedro Daniel Lopes Ferreira I am neither scared or ignorant, thanks for your concern…I am a realist and don’t like how the Democrats and others are trying to steal this election? So many people voted for each party that is where it should have been left at? No fake ballots or messing with voting machines or throwing filled out paper ballots in trash like the Democrats did…It discourages anyone from casting a vote, why do it when the other party comes in and stacks the deck in their favor at the 11th hour?…

    • @Dean Doepke Better let them die and decrease the surplus population, eh, Ebenezer?

    • @WARRIOR OF GOD First of all, try decaf. Second, the reason Covid-19 is still spreading like wildfire is because a significant portion of the population has refused to follow the guidelines, contrary to your claims of fidelity. Third, I hope to see you on Jan 20 when Biden becomes President. Between now and then, make sure you give every last cent in your possession to Donald Trump, he’s not done fleecing you yet.

  7. Hawley wants his day in the lime lite. Says 74 million votes for Trump yes but more voted for Biden. Live with it.

    • Lisa Zabriskie | January 2, 2021 at 7:10 PM | Reply

      Jawless IG page showed oh 75% of posts disgusted with his behavior. Something needs to be done so this never happens again. They took an Oath to support and defend the constitution, as did I years ago, it’s their duty, and seditious otherwise.

  8. Trump should have used this much determination to stop the spread of covid 19!!

  9. all this will do is gonna waste time it’s not change the results overall , and in the end it will hurt Republicans more than democrats

    • Watch how logic alone will prove these statements invalid as we progress to the CAPITOL 🏎

    • Well I hope what you see in your crystal ball may turn out. Because that must be how you arrived at your viewpoint. I’ll accept whatever the result turns out to be.

    • @T B I arrived at this Energy level by conducting a month long live study of YouTube’s algorithms. I watched CNN and real news such as NTD. I conducted what I call. THE SUPREME STUDY. I’ve logged 100’s of hours or wtvr the math is inside the actual senate hearings live which CNN does NOT SHOW U

      @Carolyn Moore we got to remember there are more of us ie. People capable of rational thought and they are the minority. But it is exhausting arguing with crazy illiterates.Our Democracy will prevail.

    • Chelsea Jackson | January 2, 2021 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      No 50 court cases were thrown out due to lack of evidence plus the Supreme Court threw out trumps case. So much for the Kraken?! Lol.

      @Lou Manza they do not deal in Reality. It’s really hard to understand why they are suffering from cognitive dissidence when information is so widely available!

      Do you even know what Communism is? Or do you think that silencing the free press is totally normal?

    • @Jimmy Stanbery Is that all you got Jimmy Boy! Trump Supporters SCREAM! The system is corrupt/rigged. So if it’s that F…..g. Corrupt. Then it was just as corrupt. When Trump was voted in… that’s why the World was shocked that Sleeze Ball Trump was President. But did the Democrats B.. about Trump not being President. No! People excepted the outcome and kept it moving. But now the system is so corrupt that Trump is willing to bring down and destroy Democracy as we know it and you brainwashed Supporters. Along with Trump. Should all ne locked up! Lock-up all you Traitors against America. 🇺🇸

  11. Trump is like the worst sea captain ever, if he’s going down he’s taking the ship down with him

    • @Inge larson everything thing you just said was scripted for you by CNN hello sexy brains. Watch NTD NEWS on YOUTUBE and hug me 🥺

    • @Douglas Best Maybe it was scripted, but that is exactly my thoughts and feelings.

    • Well he did compare himself to Captain Bligh. he evidently missed that Bligh was not the hero of Mutiny on the Bounty, lol.

    • @Inge larson that may be very accurate thus I encourage you to jump over to NTD news to see what’s happening. It’s a message sent with love ❤️

  12. So president Barack Obama got 2 terms, and Donald trump is a 1 term “stone cold loser”?

    • An impeached, one term, disgraced fail.

    • He is very sensitive to that name or the truth!

    • @Christa Simon drump’s flunky lawyers were also very careful not to use the word “fraud” when they were bringing these bogus suits to court.
      Because they could be held for lying if they did.

    • @Christine Benson Like Dumbo Don does.

    • @SkyGemini The Middle District of Pennsylvania case is the one I am most familiar with, relatively. In that case, The plaintiff changed the legal team at least twice before Giuliani himself made an appearance to plead the case, the plaintiffs kept adding and then withdrawing counts, and finally argued that because some mail-in ballots weren’t dated next to the signature, those were invalidated (but not discarded; those ballots were held separately in case some court ruling said to count them anyway). Giuliani argued that this was a denial of the right to vote. In the very next breath, Giuliani argued that ballots that had some other defect and the voter was notified of the problem (in Pennsylvania and other states, this is called “notice-and-cure”) should *NOT* be counted, and that the state’s notice-and-cure policy is illegal, trying to have it both ways. Giuliani then said that the _remedy_ should be that entire electorate of the state be disqualified, including millions and millions of ballots that had no issue whatsoever.

      The judge threw the case out. And rightfully so, imo.

      And since then, Trump has repeatedly declared that he should be given the electoral college votes of Pennsylvania (and all the other “swing state” votes) because reasons.
      And through all this, not a single incident of fraud could be found.

  13. The senators and congress should be spending their energy and our tax dollars getting US COVID vaccines, PPP, hospital staff, morges to handle the dead.

      They’ve been doing that since the beginning

    • dollar already in the slump and when he really goes, than Biden and his team will get blamed. People think only because there is a new president in it will all be cured! The damage what was causes by Republicans will take many, many years to rebuild.

    • Like big expensive nothing burgers 🍔

  15. Then the almighty spoke to him and said, “Donald, time to give it up, you lost the election.” And Trump replied, “Is there anyone else up there I can talk to?”.

    🇺🇸 It is difficult to legislate morality in the absence of moral legislators. 🇺🇸

  17. FLIP THE SENATE BLUE 💙 ONLY way for Americans to get help is making Mitch McConnell the minority

  18. “Fake News” = True red, white an blue Honest Reporting about the trump political crime syndicate.

  19. If it’s unconstitutional, then why is it being allowed? America voted. Electoral college voted. 0 evidence of mass voter fraud after numerous re-counts. Accept it and get over it.

    • @Mark – Well…you’re wrong. Many of us HAVE been following this whole ordeal and have looked at in depth news on both sides of the media, and news papers, videos of procedures carried out at the ballot counting locations, testimonies from workers (I personally caught clips of the same exact testimony, almost word for word, from at least 3 different people), saw those chosen to represent in Giuliani’s team efforts, and ALL the various spins on the machines and software debacle.
      I’m no lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but even I could see for myself why most of this was dismissed!
      All I can say is this… My vote was given properly, in good faith, and confidently, as were yours. My vote counts as much as yours. Any anomalies occurring were no doubt similar to any in ANY state. They just need to be examined under a magnifying glass as well.

    • @Noneshere yea for trump. Three cases of it in Pa. all went for trump 😂

    • Christopher Rosado | January 2, 2021 at 9:20 PM | Reply

      @Thomas Hutchinson Oh Tom. Bring it in, take a knee. Ok. Deep breath in….and out. Feeling better? OK, so we are done with alternate facts. We are done with ‘Democrats are so powerful they are the single source of the Covid19 disaster, stolen Presidential election (despite HOR losses and Senate up for grabs) etc etc etc.
      It’s time for you, and your buds, to realize your head is more than a container for your teeth, and think. Get with the program.

    • @Thomas Hutchinson scared of anti-fa?? Or the hearings were riddled with farts and snorts from lawyer and client?

  20. I would like to see far more DEFENSE of democracy, rather than TESTING!
