    How about Mitch giving the common man a stimulus boost instead of wealthy donors and Corporations. His salary $190,000; $34 Million Net Worth!

      Like that is ever going to happen. Moscow Mitch would cut off his right arm before he’d ever give the common man an inch.

      @Tomorrow will be deleted blocked or silenced Maybe we should just stop giving Trump, Mitch and the Republican Party inches than, because they’ve been taking thousands of miles for decades.

      Actually in reality the stimulus checks have been held up by Nancy Pelosi just because she doesn’t want president Trump’s signature on them yet she’s worth an estimated 114 million dollars.

    • @William H Music 2020 Actually the stimulus was held up by Cocaine Mitch since he refused to the hero’s act in may. Tbh, I’m kinda glad that a stimulus wasn’t passed because sadly it could have won Trump a 2nd term.

    • @William H Music 2020 hello, Will Troll! I’m proud of you! This is a real comment.

    That’s actually not a bad idea at all!

  3. Well spoken truthful common fact

  4. Wise words from a wise man…. these wise words are increasingly in short supply

    • @R Bess …hypocrisy much!… you come from the party that held a grudge and blamed for 4 FRIGGIN YEARS and then write what you just wrote….republicans are inclusive, that’s why more minorities turned to them then ever, realizing the destruction the democrats have done to them. Hate, as you describe, exudes and secretes from the left, the burning, the looting, the selfishness…just stop your idiotic grandstanding and look around….I know what I am, and I know what you are…..

    • @Dan Krohn You are going to have a tough 8 years ahead. Sad

    • @Dan Krohn I’m afraid that you do not know me Dan, no matter how much you like to think that you do. It is unfortunate that you feel the way you do. It appears that, with your reply, you answered the last question I asked, which is also unfortunate. I wish you the best Dan.

    • @R Bess …get help, you support a party that called half of America deplorable, chumps, or worse, just listen to Michelle Obama’s pathetic “unity” speech. Stop trying to frost a turd, it’s still a turd. Good luck to you too.

    • @Dan Krohn Again and still, I wish you the best Dan.

  5. Bravo —- Mr. Brokaw —— wise counsel —— wonderful idea.

  6. What a wonderful idea. That rarity common sense.

  7. Mr. Brokaw is legend.

  8. Why are Democrats always expected to be fair when Republicans commit full on treason against this country?

    • ​@Shockwave 11 that’s a pretty overly simplistic thing to say, considering the answer is obvious, you know, an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind kind of thing… But I do see your point, there is a sort of saturation point that can happen where one party or movement becomes so destructive, it becomes a necessity to break one’s one moral code, to do ANYTHING to stop it. Genghis Khan and the Mongols for example, or Hitler and the Nazis. (worst band name ever). Thankfully, I don’t think we are at that point yet with Trump and his irrational loyalists.

      What is your alternative..? Everybody commits treason..?

    • They will have their day.

    • @Shockwave 11 Amen to that. Going high against republicans means getting cheated out of legitimate elections. We must fight fire with fire and without relent.

    • Diane O'Donovan | November 10, 2020 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      Because the definition of the Democratic party is reason and reasonableness, where that of the Republican party, these days is blind obedience to the party agenda and party’s corporate backers.

  9. I admire Tom Brokaw, I worked for NBC News as an IT analyst. He was always gracious and welcoming. I really like his idea to help unify our country.

  10. I had to check, “The Crazies” mountains are in Montana.

  11. Critical thinking should be implemented throughout schools in America.

      @Dan Krohn Yes, my liberal arts PhD gets me a larger salary than your whole family, you uncultured peasant.

    • Chris Anaxagoras | November 10, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      @Dan Krohn Oh my prepubescent pal, you have no clue wtf you’re talking about. Stay in school kid.

    • @Chris Anaxagoras …your liberal arts PhD gets you an egotistical ticket to be a jerkwaite numbskul with more supposed credential than sense, typical of the species…too friggin funny

    • @Chris Anaxagoras and I’m not your pal dillweed….

    • @French blue8 Just telling it like it is. The cult tell each other all the time that it is their “critical thinking skills” that enables them to discern their imaginary “global pedophile rings”, and it appears that 71 million people voted for the cult leader, so . . .

  12. Word of wisdom, the greatest ideas for Uniting each other . Hope to god . Thank you sir.

  13. It’s hard to reason with a group of people that subscribe to an “alternative reality”.

    • Jesus can you drop the Racism….You just been Reported

    • A Flock of Beagles | November 10, 2020 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      @Peter C WTF??? MyCvid didn’t say anything about race, YOU did! I’m pretty sure they were referring to the dim witted frump supporters. I’m pretty sure you already knew this but are so detached from reality that you are attempting to divert this into a race thing to avoid facing your own lack of comprehension.

      Hence, the difficulty in reasoning with the cultists.

    • Absolutely

    • @A Flock of Beagles You clearly didn’t know who he was quoting..check your facts and then apologise..unless you are a racist

    • @A Flock of Beagles I reported Pete.

  14. In the UK when a prime minister loses an election. The removal van shows up at no 10 downing Street the next day to avoid situations like these . No messing about no lame duck period. You out mate. End of.

    • O gosh, I envy you that..

    • Allan and Julie | November 10, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      As a Brit and now an American I’d say though that the President is also head of state. No removal vans are going to head over to Buckingham Palace anytime soon. Apples and oranges. Hopefully though Don the Con will get the message soon enough. Or else…

  15. “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney.

    • The only reason we don’t have voter ID is because the Democrats keep blocking it so they can continue… VOTER FRAUD!

    • Revenge of Ramen Smith | November 10, 2020 at 5:05 PM | Reply

      ​@Cliff Medina Are you joking? 33 states request or require you to show an ID when you vote, including Democrat states like Hawaii, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Washington, Delaware, Colorado, and New Hampshire. In addition, Nebraska, a hard Republican state, requires no ID to vote. I’m not even that much of a democrat but you should think about staying quiet and just letting everyone think you’re a fool before you open it and remove all doubt.

  16. You’re right, Tom. At the hospital, we leave our politics at the door. We just do what needs to be done to save lives.

  17. Tom Brokaw’,class act one of the original today show host I remember growing up

  18. Sorry America, you don’t look anything like the greatest nation on Earth anymore. It looks broken and foolish.

  19. Find ways to identify and shatter echo-chambers that distort reality for the American people. Conspiracy theories, provable toxic bias, and Q-Anon garbage are a poison in our nation. Unless we can find common ground using science, data, logic, compassion, and reason, we are doomed to a future of in-fighting and division.

  20. Lovely guy. I can never remember not hearing him on the nightly news, his voice in the background even when I was a little kid
