  1. Lies, lies and more lies. Our taxes paid for the clowns lying speech. Remember in November

    • @N W fact check that. You are wrong it’s held on govt prop! Trump pocked almost 400 million dollars of rnc donor money. Check it out!

    • @Paula Sparrow smart girl!

    • I can see that his cult members are energized by all his lies last night. Trump and the Republicans message at the RNC. Don’t vote for the Joe Biden because if you do, he is just going to copy me and continue to destroy America causing deaths, destruction and doom. That’s basically Trump plan for another 4 years.

      Trumplestilskin has and his family and friends have been stuffing themselves at the trough of the taxpayers dollar since walking into office. That’s all they do, walk in and steal as much as they can before Trump fires them or their grift becomes too stinky to Ignore

    Cotton better be investigated when this is over, he’s the one who assaulted peaceful protesters for a photo op!

      @R Thomas probably a paid troll, ignore it. You know better!👍🤗

    • … *YouTube search Legal Analysis videos* (below) by Former Fed. Prosecutor Glenn Kirschner, on Trump’s dangerous & criminally negligent response to COVID19…

      | Watch *Trump, Coronavirus and the Case for Manslaughter*  on YouTube

      | Watch “Additional Criminal Referrals, Both State & Fed, for Trump & DeJoy’s Intentional Slowing of Mail” on YouTube

      | Watch “”Dodgy” DeJoy Testifies to the Senate: His “Credibility” Reminiscent of Manafort, Pompeo & Bannon” on YouTube

      Republicans or anyone who remains silent while enabling Trump to *# divide & trash America* while HE lets *172,000 people die* of Covid19 – IS COMPLICIT & equally guilty of Trump’s crimes!

      @Eric Phelps 180,000 dead under republicans. You win as the biggest murderers.

      @N W What about deputy Damon Gutwiller? he was killed by right wing extremists, the boogaloos bois. Somehow you aren’t mentioning that. Hmmm

  3. A covid party on the White House lawn !

  4. America no longer leads the world in anything other than stupidity.

    • As a proud American, Reading this comment is painful. We have had such a hard fall from grace. We can turn this back around and become once again a beacon of hope. But it starts with getting Trump out of the White House.

    • Lesley Watson | August 28, 2020 at 5:36 PM | Reply

      Jon.T WELL SAID!!!

    • sad but pretty true….nah we definitely lead in corona virus deaths !
      Big shout out to the orange faced clown.

    • Agreed. Stupidity, thuggery and violence of the leftist back BLM/Antifa are unfortunately giving America a very bad reputation worldwide.

    I think it’s interesting how so many things in this country where never an issue until Trump came into office and suddenly he says they’re wrong.
    China trade deals (which we’ve been doing for over 50 years)
    Mail in voting (which he does)
    Vaccines, the first one invented in 1796 for smallpox and we’ve been using them successfully since then
    the Democrat Party is EVIL and racist
    The “main stream media” is FAKE NEWS. including Fox News if they say something against him.
    He comes into office and suddenly everything about our country is wrong according to him.
    How can anyone support him?

      @Mark Gorenshtein then in 2025 i hope PENCE will keep it great

      @Stephanie Drake do you think that family seperation was caused by Trump

    • Mark Gorenshtein | August 29, 2020 at 10:12 PM | Reply

      bachcottage2005 I’m rooting more for Matt Gaetz and maybe Katrina Pierson would be interesting or I believe Rep Gabbard may flip to the Red Team as VP picks. Honestly a lot of good choices I like Dr. Rand Paul myself and Ivanka.

    • Mark Gorenshtein | August 29, 2020 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      But I’d be totally fine with Pence he’s solid

  6. If the USA cannot control their President’s illegal and fraudulent behaviour,
    then what can they control?

  7. Michael Ulbricht | August 28, 2020 at 7:36 AM | Reply

    He has no platform. He’s trying to abolish healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. Also, he’s “tampering” with Social Security. Vote ByeDon on 11/3

  9. How dare The Stable Genius go on like ALWAYS with his spectakular lies. WE are not stupid to bealive this ANYMORE.V-O-T-E EARLY!

    • He loves to boast and exaggerate, but he’s no first rate liar like Biden and some democrats.

    • Danny Barichello | August 28, 2020 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      @C. MURPHY WTF? I was trying to help you to get you to correct your misspelling as so you might appear more credible in what you are saying.

    • D

    • @FSAUDIOGUY Communist red? No thanks cult member. #trump-virus

    • Look at Ba Doal’s post here, more foreign interference. Just an innocuous unrelated video to gum up the works and distract instead of Americans talking about real issues. Once again, Repubs can’t win unless they CHEAT. (copy and paste and throw it right back at Fox!)

  10. “We’ll lead the free world.” Who’s we? USA? That’s a joke-the world is laughing at your country.

    • @Pat Riot That was what some media and their “experts” said last time too. That Trump’s win will put the economy in a tailspin. On the contrary, there was economic boom until this Covid arrived.

    • @AA ZZ The Donald just picked up were Obama left it, there was already a strong growth for three years and it did not rise much when the Don came in.
      He did nothing special ,in fact he could have done much better çause of the uprising trade worldwide after 2017.
      Donny is a fake hustler , just looking at his own interests his tax cut did not reach the average man but the ones who were well of anyway and certanly millionairs and billionair-buddies.
      His trade wars will damage the USA in the long term, mark my words, it has always been that way and it gonna be this way again.

    • @Pat Riot His trade war is mostly with China. So how will it have any disastrous consequences in the long run ? Can China prevent other countries from engaging in trade with USA or stopping them from re-negotiating existing deals ?

    • OREGON IS bracing for a storm of far-right violence.
      Police complicity and politicians’ inaction have allowed groups like the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer groups to stage violent spectacles, police affinity for the far right has enabled its violence. White supremacists have infiltrating law enforcement. As the pandemic worsens, it’s not just the virus itself that threatens human life. The corruption, cronyism, and incompetence of trump and co in power is adding fuel to the fire. The proud boys and patriot prayer groups are responsible for internal domestic terrorism in America.

  11. Trump, 1 month ago: “We’re doing too much testing, slow down.”

    Trump yesterday: “We’ve done so much more testing than anybody, and we’re proud of that.”

      For such a seasoned liar he sure sucks at it.

    • @Richard Bambenek bemusingly, the thing about chronic liars? Is they begin having trouble keeping their own lies straight and being able tell the difference between truth and lies. When comes to mental rejects, like the Orange-in-Office, that leads to sad reveals.

    When you LIE almost every day like a Trump, people will eventually stop believing in you no matter what

  13. Trump so used to lying 🤥, it just comes our so easy.

    He dug up the whole Rose Garden That has been there for years before he got there,just so the cameras could get a good shot of MELANIA,even though she doesn’t live there.!!!!

    • Melania is the ONE responsible for BUTCHERING the Rose Garden!

    • @Mikka Linka 4 years ago this week Melania was supposed to give a press conference answering questions as to why she was working here illegally on a tourist visa (she had 10 photo shoots as a model). Maybe the Oct. surprise will be her serving him the divorce papers.

    • @codent that would be a cool Oct surprise! Did you know she got into the states on what they call an “Einstein Visa”? For people who have exceptional talent & knowledge? Seriously? She & Baron have dual citizenship (USA & Slovenia). I”m Sure the TWO of them will have a private jet ready to go when the time is right. VOTE & Stay SAFE out there….

    • A prostitute and a person buy prostitute don’t care about nothing

  15. He likes it when people are willing to give there lives for him, total devotion, no will of there own. All is true in my world. Follow him like zombies. Right.
    He’s gotta go.

    Tom Cotton did NOT just accuse BIDEN of “coddling to dictators?!” You CANT BE SERIOUS?!?? 🤥
    You mean the Trump that LOVES Putin & Kim?! Who trusts Putin over U.S. intelligence?! Who doesn’t care about Russian bounties on soldiers?!

    • @J G ” Have you read… Biden’s manifest?” No, but by implication you have, which is quite strange because Biden has never written such a thing. You’re not playing with a full deck, kid. Like Joe Biden is some sort of Marxist revolutionary with a poster of Che on the wall, Fer Chrissakes. Don’t worry, though, it could be worse! I’ve got a buddy in NYC who in 2016 was sending me videos showing how Hillary was really a robot. I don’t want to make fun if you have a learning disability or something but I suggest some blank paper and a box of crayons. Be Best!

    • @codent Yes, it’s on his campaign website. Saved to my phone and computer so I can easily share it with people who care.

      Have YOU read it? The Unity Task Force Recommendations.

      Now, try again.

    • @J G Oh I see what you meant “The Unity Task Force Recommendations”, which you called a manifest (I think you meant to say “manifesto”) is something that you should actually read, instead of listening to others who told you that Dems will “outlaw cows”. Stuff that that is so silly nobody could take you seriously.

    • @codent I called it a manifest purposefully. I have read it, and I’ve downloaded it to share readily with others.

      It is a dangerous power grab. Period.

      How big do you think is too big for the government to get?

    • That Russian bounty story never went past coming from an unidentified source.

  17. Creepy VP “Pointless” Pence, aka Nazi Sgt. Schultz: “I know nothing!”

    DIDN’T watch!!! I’ve had ENOUGH of his lies!!! He is trying to avoid prison DOESN’T care about us!!!

  19. USPS Poopmaster Loser DeJoy testifying at House hearing: “I know nothing about the U.S. Postal Service!

    • They will face justice later, but November has to be a big win or Repubs will fight it, and their crazy supporters could become violent. Unfortunately, a mere 270 electoral college won’t be enough.

  20. He’s warning America about CHAOS as CHAOS is occuring RIGHT now under this administration!!!
    Don’t look at the polls VOTE BLUE all the way to save OUR nation! Biden/Harris 2020
