  1. Mitch McConnell is the enemy of progress

      @Bill Billson Are you dense..? Nixon spent no time in prison, because he was pardoned. If he hadn’t been pardoned, he certainly would have wound up in the slammer. Stop grasping at straws.

    • Nothing but an opportunist. Nothing more. NOTHING

    • @Tessmage Tessera — pardon or no pardon, the point is the system keeps presidents out of jail.. lol he ain’t going, and any attempt to put him there and biden will have a civil war on top pf the massive amount of problems he already has lol

      @Bill Billson You still haven’t answered my earlier question… instead, you keep side-stepping it. I asked why Gerald Ford felt compelled to give Nixon a pardon in the first place.

    • @Terry Hawk Yeah, we should ship you to China.. all aboard!

  2. And so is Joe Manchen…we were afraid of this. As for Trumpo, I think he’ll be in jail

    • Manchen is a fake Democrat.

    • @john smith The only kind of Democrat that can get elected in West Virginia is a fake Democrat. And if he were not there, Democrats would not have a chance to take control of the Senate in three weeks. There is no other Democrat who could get elected from WV, is there? You fight with the resources you have, not the resources you’d like to have, to paraphrase.

  3. It’s sad that Repugs are so afraid that they will cave to a lunatic and his minions….sad, sad, sad.

    • @Hani Jim — what happened to all that great treason and sedition talk!? 😂 folded like a chair

    • @Zues Blue when half of republicans joined Texas in a lawsuit in four battle states that kinda cemented people’s opinions of them….and showed they didn’t care about dividing the U.S….whats even worse is attempting supressing votes and Trumps racial slurs and comments during his term was main reasons why the civil started…if you look up causes of the civil war your going to see this is similar to whats happining now

    • Cynthia King — I like “repugs”… The Repugnant Party.

    • @A Sise i like to call them re-dumplicans party..

    • Christopher Miller | December 16, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      Spineless, feckless party of cowards.

  4. _”And let’s do a ‘Hail Mary’ with the real right-wing lunatic…”_ lol. Never truer word was spoken.

    • @michael boultinghouse oooh, you internet warriors are so scary! i won’t be able to sleep tonight knowing the Playstation militia is so upset!

    • michael boultinghouse | December 16, 2020 at 8:46 PM | Reply

      @simon kenton next year you will be worrying about your kids..your treason has enraged thousands of insurgents and now you are going to face IRA-type guerrillas. i bet you forget all about covid! how is Joe going to stop that, simon? without turning US into a police state?

    • michael boultinghouse | December 16, 2020 at 8:48 PM | Reply

      @Mot Goai the IRA drove Thatcher mad, how do you think the UK got all those cameras? Biden is going to face an Viet Cong-like guerrilla war! and your kids gonna go to school during it?? LOL think again!

    • ​@michael boultinghouse The people you’ve voted for know the only way to keep your loyalty is to keep you desperately terrified of this Biden boogeyman.

      There’s no sense trying to spread your fear here. We’ve been hearing about whats gonna happen “in the next few weeks”, “next month”, “next year” for the last 4 years. The same thing is going to happen “next year” as every other time we’ve heard that – nothing.

      Every real Christian and every real patriot is praying that you and your ilk that a good look at what’s driven you to threaten your countrymen and neighbors. I’d be ashamed to be comparing myself to the IRA, VC, and AQ.

  5. Over 300,000 dead. Millions are homeless. No Covid relief package for the people. BLAME MITCH AND THE SENATE!

  6. We will see how loud Trump is without his Twitter account

  7. Trump’s not a true Republican or politition,he won’t carry on for long after his gone, because he’ll see most of his supporters aren’t the kind of people he actually likes or cares about

  8. Let’s go vote and take the Senate back democrats it’s in your hands Georgia…..

    • @Bill Steinmetz <---- Another 2 week old tRoll account.

    • @Bill Billson<--- 5 hour old tRoll account.

    • @Michael williamson

      Please donald is the problem keep on truly the problem keep. Trusting him you will see wait for it smile

      @Effie Rodgers
      Thanks for your suggestion, I’ll sit and contemplate on it lol

    • @Bill Steinmetz You have totally lost the plot, if you knew your bible as you seem to imply, you will know that Christ commanded his followers to have nothing to do with politics. You truly believe the Almighty takes sides? Yes your god will protect you but its not the god you think it is.

  9. Once out of office the press should not give Trump any coverage

  10. The Republican Fascist Party will continue to block everything, like with Obama.

  11. The House of representatives should invoke the 14th amendments on all 126 traitors.

    • @T C , over 240 yrs ago, a bunch of Patriots, with the French help, defeated a tyrant in England and the established a Democracy country. Elected by the people, for the people.
      In WW II, my foster dad help the U.S. government defeated a Fascist regime in Europe with bombs and bullets.
      Nov. 3, 2020, with the help of over 82 millions people, cast our vote and defeated a Fascist regime in the US.
      This country will always be a Democracy and the Constitution that protects it.

      ^ Presidential Constitutional Republic ^

      Republic = We are a Republic due to the fact we have a Constitution. The minority aren’t subject to the tyranny of the majority. We all are eligible to elect our leaders. We hate Tyranny and we refrain from a Monarchy type rule.

      If we were a Democracy, 1) wouldn’t have a Constitution. 2) we’d be a Representative Democracy without a Constitution. The majority have the say over the minority. As the majority are the only ones eligible to elect our leaders.

      You should learn about why the Founding Fathers despised a purely Democracy type Government. The only similarity between Democracy and Republic is the fact we elect our leaders.

      Presidential = we elect a President as the figurehead of our government/country
      Constitutional = we are governed by leaders (elected by us) they cannot infringe on the specific rights and laws laid out in the Constitution. If they attempt, we can get them out of the elected office we elected them to.
      Republic = the majority do not rule over the minority. The minority have equal say as the “majority” do. We have rights that cannot be infringed on (per a Constitution/Bill of Rights)

      “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, murders itself. There is never a Democraxy that did not commit suicide. Democracy is hard and often fraud due to human error. Because of this, Democracy often leads to a government takeover of the people, organized by the people” – John Adams.

    • Totally agree. Too bad congress and DOJ treat the constitution like a Chinese takeout menu. Pick and choose what you want.

      @Duc Nguyen
      Did you know the Founding Fathers? They specifically formed a Constitutional Republic.

      Why do you think we have the Electoral College? What purpose does it serve? Why don’t we use the “popular vote”

      1) the Electoral College ensures that each presidential candidate has to go to each (50) state and talk to the people of each state.
      2) if we used the popular vote – that would mean the majority having the say over the minority. The minority are subject to the tyranny of the majority. This would be Democracy. We elect our leaders as if we were in a Republic. However, the majority would have the ultimate say in everything. Since we are a Republic, the majority (popular vote) cannot subject the minority to tyranny. The minorities have rights just like the majority. We are a Constitutional Republic because we have a Constitution. A Democracy does not have such a thing. The majority rule. It’s very simple to understand.

    • @El gato713 we as the American people need to demand this

    Put Donald J Trump through Psych Evaluation and LOCK him in a high-security prison for clinically insane!!

  13. Steele is saying, essentially, that McConnell has absolutely no ethical base. He’s a total chameleon. He doesn’t deserve power.

  14. gop is a failed party and, if allowed to continue, will turn America into a failed state

  15. resistance is futile | December 16, 2020 at 7:36 PM | Reply

    If Stephen Miller and co. abandon uncle scam, he will fade away.

  16. Mitch McConnell doesn’t care about dying Americans.

  17. Please. The “Party of Reagan” has never cared. Democratic Presidents since Reagan haven’t even cared. Both have been the party of “Trickle-down Economics” since the `80s.

  18. McConnell needs to be removed. I hope Georgia goes Blue.

  19. If Minus45 is in prison then he won’t have his tweeter.

  20. No politicians ever cared about the people. They care about their selves
