The Senate is slipping from Republicans

The Senate is slipping from Republicans 1

 

While Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden is the big-ticket race in November, the fight for Senate majority is also crucially important. Chris Cillizza explains why the Trump White House is becoming increasingly nervous about losing the majority in the Senate in 2020, and the impact that loss could have.

  1. Hey, Chris here – do you know if either of your senators are up for re-election?

      Here in Iowa Ernst is up for re-election. (I won’t be voting for her)
      Poor Chris. You asked a simple question and what did you get? A bunch of really stupid replies and mostly off-topic.

      @Ricky Fontaine He and tRump share red noses and wigs. Putin must have all those idiots firmly under his thumb.

      @RC They support the peaceful protesters (1st Amendment – ever heard of it?), not the punks doing the looting and being jackasses. These looters are the fringe idiots, all of them, and should be arrested regardless of their politics. Apparently Trump doesn’t even respect the 1st Amendment or he wouldn’t have violently dispersed those people for his silent, useless photo op with a backwards, upside-down bible (not his bible, but “a bible”).
      He needs to go so we can return to some sort of normal with some decency again.

    • @NOTHING BURGER – CONFIRMED. lol 2 months ago you were on board with your Supreme lord commander calling covid 19 a democratic hoax, now its a threat you care about? Your eyes must be brown because you are massively full of sh*t.

      Come on dont be sad Cuomo. Your brother killed a lot of old people. =/

  2. Everyone needs to go out and vote this Nov 3rd and let your voice be heard!

      YES STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN.

      @james smith vote Blue all the way through 💙💪🏾

    • Maria A trump already has the voting machines rigged. That is why he is against mail in voting

    • @james smith You left out top former military brass with a lot of bipartisan clout coming out in condemnation of CEO Trump’s threats to deploy the military in response to the protests. Out of the kindness of his heart, he decided not to go golf at his own resort this weekend while American cities burn. Maybe Trump can pay 150 million people $50 bucks each to vote for him in November. Barring that, he’s TOAST.

      Bob leroy ALL LIES! Don’t believe the media! TRUMP IS BETTER THAN SLEEPY JOE!

  3. As a Georgian, I can’t believe Kelly Loeffler is still representing us. She should be in jail.

      @J dawg or vote republicans to get your first amendments violated in daylight with batons and shields

      @John michael is that the newest version of the bible? The 2020 bible: trump edition?

    • McKinney Man | June 4, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      J dawg … I guess the only question any voter should ask is …is the Country or your state better of than it was 4yrs ago? Law breaking politicians (impeached Trump and insider trading Loeffler) and murdering police officers have led people risking their health to protest…just like every cop is not a racist murderer not every protester is a rioter ….protect our 1st amendment rights

      J dawg ….better than how you all live in Russia

      @E DJ E you obviously don’t know U.S history very well do you. The parties have flipflopped several times. Lincoln was a Republican fighting DEMOCRAT SLAVE OWNERS in the South. Doesn’t sound like democrates fixing everything as usual to me. Learn your history you are all blind sheep following the lies of leftist media. Shame!

  4. What about Kentucky? How in the world would Republicans continue to vote for Moscow Mitch?

  5. Faux News STILL has their comments section turned off, wonder why, hmm!?

  6. Exactly what we need, get them cockroaches out of there

  7. Lindsey Graham, Moscow Mitch, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, are a few of the others that need to GO !

    I’m giving to three Democrats opponents outside of my state.

      @Trump Is My President maybe you need one yourself, considering that there is no context to what you just said; but then again looking at your username tells me why you’re incoherent, you seem to be suffering from trumpism, don’t worry we’re working on a vaccine for this disease come november

    Bless your heart, Chris, for bringing such epic news!

    Collins sounds like she’s been hit in the head by a train.

  14. Bubble Head Susan Collins , Martha McSally, and Loefler are History in their Political Careers!!

  15. Bernardo Martinez | June 4, 2020 at 5:15 PM | Reply

    I hope everyone votes the way they are protesting if they really want change because that’s where it starts.

  16. 2020 is when the Republican party gives its last gasp and dies

    Good riddance to bad rubbish

  17. As a Georgian, we must vote out Loeffler!

  18. That Maine senator needs to go. She has two faces

  19. Your “president” is scared he’ll go to prison following his loss in Nov

    • Humphrey W. | June 4, 2020 at 9:11 PM | Reply

      Biden for president

    • @choronos I was just thinking the same thing that Trump will literally die before those records can legally be unearthed. That is so true, the one line drawn with anyone is damn taxes. Even Trump couldn’t weasel out of that.

    • @blizrd11m Nah. For tax evasion and everything else that’s hiding in his taxes. Mazars, his former accounting firm, agreed with the Manhattan court’s decision to hand over his tax returns til 2011 and he sued them for it. Will be interesting to see a new trial. It will be better than both OJ’s and Conrad Murray’s. Prime time TV. At least Trump will love the ratings!😎

    • For what idiot?

    • Crimson Spirit | June 4, 2020 at 10:39 PM | Reply

      @Jim Patriot the guy ontop of you kiterally just said why, blind idiot

  20. The so called “Republicans” need to be exited from the Senate, period ! ! !
