  1. Not only Nixon was about to be impeached he was about to go to jail too

    • And then he got pardoned, which I’m afraid will happen with Trump as well, if it gets to that point.

    • @drew pedersen hopefully he faces the wrath of god and Jesus

    • *you really sound stupid saying nixon was about to go to jail.. shows howe very little you know about processes*

    • @drew pedersen Trump can only be pardoned by Pence for the federal crimes but the charges in the Southern District of New York can’t be pardoned by Pence. Trump’s legal trouble not only continues, but appears to get worse on the day he leaves office, whenever that day does come.

  2. Republicans during the Nixon impeachment were actual conservatives. Republicans during the Trump impeachment call themselves “conservative” but upon being pressed, reveal themselves to be moral nihilists.

  3. Trump realizes Nixon’s mistake…NEVER accept responsibility for ANYTHING.

  4. Trump never wanted the job in the first place.
    He was planning to use his presidental run as a “get rich Quick” scheme for himself and, as usual, messed it up when the russians decided to turn him into a toxic element to undermine and destroy America from within.

    Trump is a goon and a failure, through and through, and has been for his entire life.

    • @Relative Insanity lol

      Marc Emson Says the guy who’s never amounted to anything, never will, and never could.

      Bravo. Your parents are so proud.

    • Indeed. Trump and his cronies found themselves amazed at winning and totally unprepared to “transition” with the outgoing Obama administration. Trump probably still has vacancies to fill left over from that administration. I remember when postmasters in even tiny rural villages were likely to be replaced with members of the winning party as necessary to maintain party consistency. Never figured out why, though.

      OMG there were no Russians. Can’t you people read or comprehend anything. You should have your voting rights removed.

  5. Trump* is garbage.

  6. Here is a man fighting so hard to win a position and power, but not the responsibility.

  7. He Plays from the GUTTER because that is Where he has Psychological Lived his Entire CORRUPT Life. He was able to CON Retiress out of their Life Savings without Looking back. He SCAMMED Working People with a Fake University and Fake Property, Without Looking Back. He Bankrupted his Father and tried to FORGE the Family Will, Leaving Out his Sibling. This VILE piece of FLESH has always been about SELF and the Only difference is, He has Putin, Saudi, Turkey and a Position to take his CON to a HIGHER Level.

    • @Never Again truth you say. Amen.

      @Saltponds239 😂😂😂😂😂that’s a joke right?

      You can’t be serious. The Democratic party has taken your social security and spent in on their own retirement. Are you really this blind? Best economy in decades and people actually have retirement accounts because of Trump. You must be another one suckling on the Government boob

  8. The only reason there’s this he said she said is because we’ve got fake news channels that are propping up a corrupt president and right wing conspiracy theories. We’ve got main stream media and news networks who are constantly both siding everything. Spreading blame in equal measure by aserting “both sides are dug in” NO there is onoly ONE side is dug in the other side is dealing in TRUTH and FACTS. Media has turned into a let’s you and him fight drama machine for the sake og ratings with your false equivalency!!!

    • When I was a kid, we lived on a property that bordered Murdoch’s mother in Australia. I always remember her telling my father that Rupert was dangerous and she was worried. My father never really questioned her on it. Our family still talk about it often.

      Trump gets zero media coverage so try again cry baby

  9. The crimes Nixon and co. committed would constitute a rather boring Tuesday morning for the Trump admin. Our man Boris probably did just as terrible things during the Brexit campaign and he’s not a patch on Trump.
    Nixon knew he was in deep, deep doo-doo when this question was posed to him. Trump just blames the journalists for being biased and closes down all press conferences.

    *I would rather have four more years of Richard Nixon, than four more days of Donald Trump.*

    Trump will always be the “illegitimate president”.

    Impeach and incarcerate the dotard

    There is another utterly sad thing about this whole affair. As long as Trump is alive there will never be a ‘gathering of former presidents’ without some real embarrassment. Just think about that.

  14. There is no justice or truth in government. Lies for profit at any human cost, especially humans of color otherwise know as the powerless.

  15. Trump is low-class trash!

  16. You can’t really compare Trump to Nixon. First off, Nixon spoke English. Then there’s the whole intelligence thing Trump seems to lack completely. Nixon was far more cunning and machiavellian, whereas the Donald is merely an orange ape-shaped rug with a gooey substance* where normal people got their brains, solely driven by his lower urges…

    * due to his extensive use of Adderall

    Trump = thug

  18. trump Plays From The Gutter!!!!!

  19. The gutter isn’t low enough

  20. Yes
    People took what they did seriously then
    They remembered what they were raised with-MORALS, PRINCIPLES, STANDARDS
    Today everyone only operates on WHAT IS IN IT FOR ME, MY POCKET
