Too Many Americans Underestimate The Trump Threat, Says Writer | MSNBC


  1. “Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer”.
    Do not underestimate a man who has brought the Republican Party to it’s knees, with the help of Russia.

  2. when you consider the acquiescence of GOP lawmakers to look the other way regarding sedition you should be greatly alarmed

    1. @Nancy Ross Not a single person was KILLED protecting the CAPITOL! Betsy was hotter than you……..

  3. I don’t see why they would underestimate him.When he and all the rest get to do what they like. They have no laws.

    1. @Joshua Aaron if you hate socialism so much quit using everything that socialism provides such as your government, military, police, judicial, sewage, waste, roads, electrical. Good luck opening a business when anyone can just rob you.

    2. @Tristan Bennett it isn’t socialism dolt. “Oh, America is such evil capitalism, also stop enjoying American socialism.” It is called a mixed economic philosophy, and even then we have this thing called “tax return” so you are still wrong.

    3. Reminds me of what Jenna Ryan said (who went to break in to the Capitol 1-6-21), White people don’t belong in Jail

    4. @Tristan Bennett mulligan? you are the one pointing out crimes as if the U.S. and its capitalist philosophy is the only bad guy. You do realize that the U.S. is one the the youngest countries in the world right?

  4. When Has His August Campaign Rally/Riot Coming Up.
    A Very Strict Handling Of That Mob Might Help In the Long Run.

  5. Interesting to go from “our democracy is in a state of emergency” to levity and jokes for using big words… I wonder what cute quips they’ll drop when the GOP refuses to count electoral votes in swing states, denying a Biden reelection its EC votes and kicking it to the house where GOP state delegation will make trump president again in 2024… but, yuck it up for big words in the face of that…

    1. I completely agree with you Christopher … stupid and clumsy attempts to turn all this alarming news into bad comedy by supposedly serious journalists is whistling past the graveyard. It is not amusing. You insult the intelligence of the viewers . Cut it out .

    1. @Bob Brock”Hitler was far from a puppet. Hiter made puppets out of other leaders such as Mussolini. *Hindenburg thought that he could use Hitler as a puppet, a move that he surely regretted.* ”

      Did you stop reading my comment the moment you thought you found a flaw in my logic? Because you missed this part:

      *But initially the plan by the elites was to ride his populism to power exactly the way our republicans believe they are using trump.*

      Try as we might, we simply cannot whistle past this graveyard. Not this time. Trump will come back, the GOP will do everything they can to get him back into power, including burning the entire place to the ground if that’s what they believe is called for.

    1. @Anita Bruton

      no president in history has wreaked more havoc on the U.S. in just a few short months than biden.
      open borders.
      pipelines shut down.
      highest gas prices since 2012.
      horrendous jobs report just out in May. (which WH Econ Advisor blamed on Easter being in March. Easter was in April.)
      record skyrocketing inflation.
      stock market down.
      excelsior project- goverment tracking covid vaccine recipients.
      spent trillions and trillions of taxpayer money (billions of it going out of the country) and he’s not done spending.
      staunch supporter of Antifa, the terrorist ‘idea’.
      Told a reporter he would answer their question “if you step in front of my vehicle while i hit the gas” (haha).
      only president in history not to mention God on National Prayer Day this year.
      can’t speak for himself, needs speech teleprompter then still goofs up.
      falls Up the stairs.
      apparently likes hair barretts on girls and ice cream.
      biden destroyed CNN! ratings down 70% since january.

      “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f— things up.”
      said Obama.

      all this just a few months in.
      it will only get worse..


    2. @Anita Bruton

      No. He didn’t. And a traitor’s fate awaits him. When you get cheated. I’ll be the first to laugh as you’re wailing and moaning. Like begets like.

    3. @g h Stop with the distraction contacts.The GOP and Diaper Don are so far over the edge,the only way is down.

  6. The whole story asks us to take the Trump threat seriously (correctly, in my opinion), then all three presenters get the giggles over a silly word from kids’ literature. Really, get serious.

  7. I do not underestimate the threat. I’m scared to death. When I saw those lunatics attack our capital with almost no resistance, I was very concerned. I now own weapons and I do not like it.

    1. I bought my first gun when all the Riots were happening during the Summer of 2020. Federal buildings burned, Police Stations Burned, Box and Mom n Pop stores Burned and looted. Over 1000 officers injured. Still counting the dead.
      Police being ambushed while protecting statues that been here for Centuries.
      All this done in Democrat Run Cities.
      Arrest them all including the intruders that went into the Federal Capital.

    2. @JW65mo My understanding was that the blm riots never went after private residences, only businesses. So if you were in your home, you’d be safe. No need to get a gun.

    3. @Richard Clarke he’s probably hoping when states start to flip to Trump, you’ll go riot in farm country hun.

    4. @Danny Sprinkle But he still is the prez In his own delusional world. How does it feel to live there Princess?

    5. Wow !…

      I hear there is “tuition assistance”
      (bail money) available to many
      “underpriveleged arsonists”
      through the programs of the
      “kam harris/blm/barrel-o-monkeys”
      organization !……

  8. “Those who cannot learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.” – attributed to George Santayana

    1. Well congratulations, you have repeated it. Jimmy Carter 2.0 is even worse than the original.

  9. Friendly reminder that the leader of the GQP is also the guy who lost re-election in historic fashion and who most of the world would take on face value that he put his pants on backwards because he really is that incompetent.

    1. Puppet master Biden uses a teleprompter for ever word that comes out of his mouth. If that’s not incompetence I don’t know what is. When he doesn’t have a teleprompter he thinks Arizona is a city and talks about little kids rubbing his legs. Lmao

  10. The Dems better wake-up or they will soon find the GOP controlling Congress and the White House by 2025.

    1. Exactly, this people will do whatever they have to do to take over the Presidency, is very dangerous

    2. Yep. Griping about him alone wont cut it. Say what you want, but Dems dont seem to honestly grasp what they are up against and are not really taking serious action.

    3. Wow !…

      I hear there is “tuition assistance”
      (bail money) available to many
      “underpriveleged arsonists”
      through the programs of the
      “kam harris/blm/barrel-o-monkeys”
      organization !……

    4. The GOP in their present form will never be reflected.The majority of the people will make sure of that.Hopefully Dump will be jail soon.

  11. If the half of the electorate that ignores their opportunity to vote would meet their patriotic duty and give their voice to the governance of their country, Donald Trump would never stand a chance at a reelection.

    Vote. Just vote.

    1. @Grateful Fredly that’s what people are going to believe. Trump won 2016 with Russian interference but he won.

  12. I’m sure someone already repeated this quote, “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” – George Carlin

    1. @Augie Rockero

      You’re right, I’m typing this from prison as I write.

      You’re so bright. I see how biden successfully cheated with your help and approval.

      You are very smart. No fooling you!

    2. @Augie Rockero

      But hey, at least the violent terrorists who burned down Minneapolis and killed David dorn are locked up.

    3. @NOPE =/= can’t deflect on the insurrection, MAGAT…no matter how hard you MAGATS try…we’ll keep playing the footage, keep arresting your friends, and keep playing the testimony of the police who survived.

    4. @Augie Rockero

      There was no insurrection, so I’m not deflecting. They were LET IN BY POLICE.

      1/6 is YOUR deflection away from the real insurrection of communism (self proclaimed marxists), with actual violence and casualties.

      You are not only a liar but pretty stupid even for a potato-voter.

      Cheating is a rule for you and those of your kind, along with lying.

    5. @Progressive Humanist

      Progressive humanism is a gimmick worldview of no real substance. I can see why the illegitimate potato appeals to you.

      You and he both share a disposable worldview that comes in 50-packs from Walmart, full of empty sound and fury.

  13. And this is why we have trump
    Joe having fun with this undermines the entire discussion
    Joe underestimating this

  14. Tell Manchin what he has to do. Tell him to get with the program, and” stay with his party. Come on Mr..Manchin wake up!!!

    1. He’s awake… He’s what you called a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s always been a republican pretending to be a democrat. I’m sure he’s got a lot of favors from McCONnell this year alone.

    2. He is wide awake he is not that stupid he is doing this on purpose he is not a Democrat,I don’t see him backing down on what is doing.

    3. @KPepper L Joe Manchin is a mole. The American Fascist Party alias The GOP, pays well even if it is in Rubles. Joe Manchin has an agenda as did TRAITOR Trump on January 6, 2021.

  15. Too many Americans underestimate him, he’s not a punchline!
    Also: hee hee, hornsnoggle.

  16. I said the same since I first laid eyes on Trump on one of his fascist campaign rallies in 2015. Nobody listened. Bach then, Joe was still pro Trump.

  17. Joe just made a joke instead of taking the guest seriously re the fact that Democrats need to take the threat to our democracy seriously .

    1. @ Newsie Nurse.
      You are correct.
      This is a attempt by FASCIST to take over the country.
      Lack of action, bipartisanship lip service by the Democrats is another squandering of power.

  18. Max is the author of the book “everything he touched will die” which become true in every instance of crisis in America.
