    He sure cheated to win the election and tried to cheat again doing the same thing smearing his opponent.

    • @Bugs Bunny Your the one ranting and raving because that’s all you have…….bottom line Trump is free and will never be Impeached and that’s FACTS #Getthecoldoutofyoureyes

    • @L. Shelton , I almost forgot to mention that Stone just got convicted as well. Guilty on all seven counts. Maybe he can get a cell next to Manafort! Another one of trump’s “only the best people” right? Hilarious!

    • @Bugs Bunny That was Stone not Trump……he still free as you and me out here…..Please keep my info to rub it in my face if Trump goes to jail and or doesn’t get re-elected……..If any and all of that happens I will acknowledge publicly FAKE NEWS is real and everything they say…..BUT if he doesn’t go to jail and gets re-elected…..I know you will convince yourself on some extravagant way the FAKE NEWS comes up with on how he got away with all the evidence against him which is going to tickle me pink lol……#Getthecoldoutofyoureyes

    • Zachary Fluke Well he’s being smeared beyond belief now.

    • Bezz80 Butt hurt about the Trump havoc.


  3. Just like he cheated to win the first time, we know this because of Gates testimony in the Roger Stone case.

      Ichabod Crane this about trump stop deflecting fool

    • @Ichabod Crane the mainstream media has been reporting on the criminal activity of the president of the United States just because you don’t like it doesn’t make it any less relevant.

    • @Richard Hammonds Russia is literally taking over US military and air bases in Syria. Putin must be patting himself on the back. He picked the perfect stooge to perpetuate crimes against the US and its allies.

  4. He didn’t get in trouble the first time he cheated, so of course he cheated again. We knew this, now when are the GOP gonna our country over party?

      They want their sellouts they get paid for their silence and that’s how the rich stay rich. We the people need to bring an upheaval.

    • Not gonna happen

    • Kathleen Dunlap | November 14, 2019 at 12:16 AM | Reply

      When 20 republican senators find pit from the polls they will lose if they don’t impeach and remove criminal traitor trump. Everyone that votes Republican must call their senator and ask them to VOTE to remiive this criminal from our Whitehouse

    • C Slye once a cheater. Always a cheater.

  5. Trump cheated on contractors, Trump University students, Trump’s charity, wives, banks, IRS, election…the only person he didn’t cheat is himself.

      @V Amen!! 💯 accurate!!

    • @Annette youtube the irs audits him every year. if he was cheating, he would have been charged long before now. or did that reality ever occur to you in SJW world.

    • Annette youtube | November 18, 2019 at 12:59 AM | Reply

      @John Doe …IRS audits only look to see if someone listed their taxable income, deductions, losses and expenses in compliance with federal tax laws.

      They’re not always digging around for illegal businesses….they just want the tax you owe; if you have a good accountant who puts all the numbers into the proper columns, the IRS may never suspect anything.

    • William Hollins | November 18, 2019 at 9:38 PM | Reply

      He cheated his self respect

  6. Impeachable, Removable and Illegal.

    “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” ― Mark Twain

    • It helps to be smart if you want to lie. The liar in chief is a stupid liar just like his boot lickers.

    • Yeah till the memory goes then you have to figure out if what you remember is accurate…and what people tell you of shared times is true,,, getting old sucks lol

    • karenza t. Wall | November 16, 2019 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      And the truth is so much easier, no brainer. Mark Twain, Huck & Tom have been constant companions for over 60 years. Thank you for the quote.

    • In reference to greedy dishonest people my mother would invariably say; Give them an inch and they take a mile. But if you give them enough rope and they’ll hang themselves.

    • @Brian Steve That’s how I heard it.

  8. Of course he was….and the gutless unethical GOP won’t do anything about it!

  9. The GOP are finished.
    Their “best” defense of their conman was utterly destroyed by Schiff in the span of three minutes.
    The former republican party is done for if they still cling to Trump after this.

    • I’m 56 and it’s been a criminal organization as long as I can remember. You’d have to go all the way back to johnson.

    • @Jon Nelson we live with reagan’s damage. He pretty much single handily destroyed the middle class. “Trickledown economics” (the rich buying congressmen to loot the federal budget) is the greatest scam of the last 100 years.

    • Joe Perez 141iq actually but nice try

    • @adamf663 If only reagonomics were as obviously bad to other people as it is to us.

  10. This is all the electoral college fault he lost the popular vote by 2.9 million. Remember that folks.

    • @Truth I’m not aware of any evidence of “cheating.” No vote totals were changed that I’m aware of. Voter suppression is absolutely a thing, though. The GOP knows that low turnout favors them.

      I understand the appeal of getting rid of the electoral college, but I think you are more likely to get struck by lightning indoors. It would require a constitutional amendment, which is very difficult to achieve by design, and as long as one group feels it favors them, they will not get on board. That’s not a partisan complaint against Republicans, either – if Democrats believed that the electoral college favored them more than the popular vote they would support it too.

    • @Bugs Bunny Polling data? That predicted a win for Hillary all along. Russian interference did not determine the outcome , The DNC and Hillary’s corruption, along with the fact people wanted change is what determined it.

    • @Patricia roe , Sorry, incorrect! Thanks for playing! Better luck next time!

    • @Bugs Bunny Go back to cartoons. Anyone that watched the primaries closely could see the corruption playing out in the DNC. Show me your facts and I will show you mine.


  12. I think Attorney Goldman did a great job. The attorney for republicans, not so much. He was hostile and unprofessional.

    ‘Saving Private Bonespurs’…limited engagement soon to be deferred to SDNY video.

  14. The liar in chief cheated in 2016. He can’t win without cheating, it’s the republican way.

  15. Every time the Fox News lackeys are lambasting you …it’s a sign you’re on the right side of history !!!

  16. For some people, it’s just that the learning curve is TOO steep.  They’re called Republicans.

  17. Trump is a cheater, he cheats always.

  18. The Republican Party has become a criminal organization

    • Has been for the last 40 plus years!! 😵 Drumpf 👿 is a symptom of the GOP CANCER!! We the people have to cut out the disease!! This had to happen to make the people WAKE UP!! VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO!! 👍

    • Yep

    • Anthony Barrett | November 17, 2019 at 7:12 PM | Reply

      Amen! That is accurate 100%!! The Republican party has basically become mobsters!

    • Anthony Barrett | November 17, 2019 at 7:13 PM | Reply

      And then Republicans want to know why we do not trust them anymore! and they always want to bring up that they are the party of Lincoln. Yes, once upon a time you were. But not anymore!

    • I hate that I agree with you… It’s horrible to know this. They are like real criminals.

  19. Trump: I cheated on *all* my wives. I cheated on my taxes. I cheated the banks. I cheated the investors. I cheated my employees. I cheated my contractors. I cheated my suppliers. *But trust me, I don’t cheat in elections*

      tRump’s been cheating for so long he doesn’t know how to not cheat.

    • Copy and place… Please share… We don’t put our hope in Trump we put it in Jesus.

    • He pretends to love he Military but he even cheats THEM ..stealing over 2 million from them in a charity event..whatta phoney!!!!

    • generationofswine | November 20, 2019 at 7:29 PM | Reply

      Trump’s supporters seem proud that he cheats and gets away with it. Their attitude is that law-abiding people are weak and stupid and cheating means you win, so it’s a great thing. They are more immoral than anyone I’ve ever heard of.

    He will never have a second mandate, and he will cry ” rigged elections” and that’s okay. America will move on and recover from this nightmare .
