  1. I love how the “stable genius” opens his mouth to dig himself further into his grave.

    Trump is an embarrassment to our country and should resign NOW

  3. I don’t know who the whistleblower is…..but .
    ……”Thank you” ….. for standing up and doing the right thing. A much better person then who we currently have in the Senate ( cowards)

      Morgan J.S. You are focusing on grammar , instead of worrying about Corruption in the Whitehouse, What’s wrong with you ???

    • @Morgan J.S.

      What, “no doubt”, am I????  Can you guess from my grammar???  I, too, dislike others’ inability to spell correctly and differentiate words as well; however, for this subject matter I don’t care.  We are discussing the most corrupt poor excuse of a human being that, at this point, I’m not concerned and you shouldn’t be either.  “All is forgiven” from my point of view.  At least that person is not corrupt and has the ability to distinguish between good and evil/right and wrong.

      I simply hope they keep this American hero safe; that perverted individual in the white house could easily and might “put out a hit” on him/her (it encouraged this in one of its Hitler like speeches) and I believe that’s what happened to Jeffrey Epstein.

      By the way, I’m a black uneducated American.  Did you guess correctly??????

      Jake Okay , first of all, I did not guess you were an uneducated Black American, second, who cares who you are, what colour you are, or what level of education you have? , I was commenting on your post, not your race or Education, why would you think that? I apologise to you, it was rude of me to say “ What’s wrong with you “ I take that back. I support your post about protecting the Whistleblower and I think this post is Well Said,and intelligent. My opinion has always been, uneducated people can have more intelligence than highly educated people, Please visit Australia one day, I would welcome you to stay at our place in Ocean Grove , Victoria, Australia, we are Way down under, at the bottom of Australia 🇦🇺 PM me if you do decide to visit one day, 🇺🇸🇦🇺🇺🇸🇦🇺🇺🇸🇦🇺🦘🦘🦘🦘🦘🦘🦘

    What would trump know about the good old days? He never served. He bowled and won a bowling trophy while Muller fought in Vietnam and won the Purple Heart.

  5. That “Wiggins” moment is close at hand, we had the Nixon moment the other day when all Trump could say was, “I didn’t do it…” The impeachment is happening.

  6. “become unmangeable”…what the heck has he been this entire time LOL.

  7. Trump should be more careful how he suggests what be done to traitors, he is the traitor.

    Witness intimidation is a federal crime: 18 U.S. Code § 1512. Tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant…

    • I voted for Obama both times! He made his mistakes, as all presidents do as they’re only human, except for the cretin in the American people’s White House! It defies believe how much damage trump has caused. It’s hard to fathom that he has any supporters! I hope that America can wither through and get back to some sense of normalcy. What this has exposed is deeply seated discontent that has been on a slow burn for many years! trump is but a symptom! The system is completely broken and needs immediate attention!

      @Deborah Lawson she had to nudge him to put his hand over his heart because he thought the national anthem was playing for him.

    • @Liam Lians I am sad you feel this way. Unfortunately, Obama was not leading us to maintain ourselves as the worlds economic and military powerhouse that we are. He also was part of the world welfare we had going on (give with no expectation of returning our costs even). It is always good to help others, of course, but not at the risk of our country. If we are not first, then how can we continue to help everyone we do? We were being taken advantage of and it was not fair to a country that at that time was not in the best of shape economically. Trump handles everything like a businessman vs a politician. I for one, am ok with this, because the politicians recently are no longer for the people. This is due to career politicians and lobbyists, but that is another conversation. The politicians are loyal to themselves and their contributors (people lining their pockets with cash/opportunists) and not the people that elected them. They basically all lie (the same lies) and get into power and never leave. That is corrupt as it gets. They system is broken on many levels, that is just relevant to what we are talking about now. So Again, I am not upset that Trump does not act like these fake politically correct politicians and whether or not I agree with what he says, you understand where he stands and he goes after it as hard as he can, as he promised he would do/was elected by the people to do. He also understands that saying things creates a reaction on the world stage, and he knows how to take advantage of that, to the US’s advantage. Talk Loudly and Carry a Big Stick, if you will. If he says it, you think it is at least possible, but then when you meet with him behind closed doors, he simply wants to make the deal. He wants these deals on his life’s resume, if you will. He prides himself on making the deals nobody can, and part of this is psychological in nature. He was elected on this platform and has stuck to his word, unlike politicians. Half of the country was sick of politicians never doing anything, everything always staying the same and the politicians getting rich while in many cases, somehow becoming above the law. I refused to vote last election, that is how much I disliked both choices, but since he has been in office, it is not debatable, we are now better off than we have been in half a century and in some cases, such as minorities, ever in our history as a country. Trump knows how to negotiate on the grandest scales possible (he is in the billionaire club) and touched shoulders with (and bought) politicians legally all day everyday, before he came to be POTUS. So, it was a well played stab at the establishment from half of the country.

    • @Deborah Lawson Please give examples of how Trump has destroyed our country? The reason Trump was brought in to power by half of the country, is because they agree the system is broken, an controlled by the establishment. So, they elected a billionaire businessman that bought and paid for the established politicians, to smack them all around and get rid of the BS that brought our country down for decades. We are now in the best shape we have been in for half a century……So, I am wondering by which metric you are measuring damage? Honest questions I promise.

    • @Myrna Washington He was taking in the scene and forgot. Oh no. Bet that never happened to any other POTUS, oh wait…it for sure has and worse.

    Dear Mr./Ms. Whistleblower, thank you for your patriotism. To me, it is YOU, (not the ACTING DNI) who is the Honorable One

  10. When he speaks, those who follow him find a way to react and end up hurting innocent lives. This is beyond…the beyond!!!

    I’m so shocked a president has so much room to be a dictator. Wow America 😂😂😂😂

  12. Trump has a mental disorder that’s ‘untweetable”! Lol

  13. Seems like President Bonespurs has evolved to President Bonesaw.

    Guess he won’t be getting the Nobel Peace prize 😆

  15. Hitler used Rally’s to work up the lemmings…..they have so much in common.

  16. I want the good old days when the rule of law actually ment something.

  17. OccasionalGamer | September 27, 2019 at 6:36 PM | Reply

    That was clear witness intimidation and should be added to the charges against Trump.

  18. The fact he wants to know who gave the info and calls them a spy, means it’s all true

  19. Like true mob boss. Threaten those who a “rat”. It will never end until he is removed and totally humiliated.

  20. By calling the whistleblower’s sources spies he’s kind of just verifying that their accounts are accurate.
