  3. Andrew Yang doesn’t exist in CNN polls but they sure can pull his crying footage. WTF CNN?

      @Cherie Cullum did I stutter muthafucka? Outperforming is exactly what I said and exactly what President Trump is doing. Do your part though and keep crying about politics.

    • @Far Left Radicalized White Supremacy Liberal what an ignorant sucker. I bet you lack a high school diploma. Now go have that tRump sandwich, white bread, full of baloney, with a small pickle on the side. I’m sure u can relate…the small pickle

    • Mike Hunt it would seem that way to a person who has no empathy and who has no child the age of the woman who lost her little boy. YOU should be crying for Trump screwing you every day. But again, if you don’t have the sense to know it……

    • Barry Chen 👍

  4. You know he was pulling his Yang on that setup…

      All you cuntservative lizard people are fully aware President Babyrapist is going to jail, hence the crybaby victim act

    • @michaelthemovieman Anyone who wants someone to die in a mass shooting needs to be in a mental hospital. PERIOD. Get some help dude. Your hate will only cause pain for you and everyone around you.

  7. There’s also crying at CNN and MSNBC.
    The 2016 election night coverage is still to this day the most fantastic, revealing, genuinely out of script TV moment in history.

      What’s revealing about it? That they didn’t like trump? The revealing thing is the thing you already knew.

    • Daniela dos Santos Silva | September 3, 2019 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      Yes. Indeed. Very revealing. Racism is alive and well. Racists could stand the first black president and got out of their way in order to elect the most racist person they could find.

    • Daniela, you are brainwashed.

    • Daniela, people who voted for Obama twice (twice) voted for Trump. Trump flipped States that voted blue for 40+ years. The people voted for Obama in 2008 because they were sick and tired of the Washington Establishment but Obama was only an empty puppet, an empty promess.. He pushed the same agenda, proceeded to carpetb*mb 7 more countries, rebranded the RomneyCare for ObamaCare, tried to fast track the TPP, etc, etc, etc.
