  1. TAINTED BY!?!? The campaign is BASED on that!!!

  2. Scary desperate despot in a country he’s made more scary. Great guest speaker.

    • My thought exactly! And for some time now I can’t help thinking about the great Costa-Gavras’s films or so many others about the Greek or the Spanish or the Chilean dictatorships, or the end of the Irish documentary on the aborted coup in Venezuela(the Revolution won’t be televised).
      The american educated elites have to reflect on why such a character was able to be brought to and stay in power for 4 years. Some will say the american institutions were strong enough to sustain the damages since the country continued to function, others might question the cost of it, on different levels, either the human costs, in image deficit, in influence deficit, or the financial cost, etc. This episode also reminds(edit) us of somber pages of the recent modern History even though in a softer version.
      I very much doubt that a former president will ever end up in prison -just for the sake of the country and its reputation, it won’t be done and this might very well be a leverage for a “peaceful” transition of power.

    • Donald J. Trump Treasonous Actions Exposed.
      Cashapp is $SongofMyrrh and tips

    • B

  3. Trump just has too much stuff mostly bad true or false but still too much stuff coming out about him

  4. Hopefully his grifter kids and their spouses go to prison too.

  5. TRUMP is going to LOSE in 24 days……..

    • Marina – I hope he loses as you say because with this President he will do anything to win. He’ll cheat. I don’t trust him. All I know is that another four with dTrump will be worst than the pandemic. People please make every effort to go our and vote blue. We have to save not only our lives but the ALL American lives.

    • Why wait. I say evict him now into a prison Guard’s custody. America would save so much more money by not financially supporting trump as president but instead supporting him as an inmate. Presidential treatment or prisoner?🤔

  6. True Americans beware, stay strong,vote, stand together. ..dangerous times ahead for you all …Stand firm …Stand Tall. …good luck.

      @Brent Anderson

      We seem to agree on almost all of the points you listed.

      I’m for the second amendment but I believe that reasonable restrictions are a good idea.
      I believe that high capacity clips are overkill for civilian use.

      I have no idea where you got the idea that Democrats disrespect the flag. You seem to be painting with an awfully broad brush.

      I doubt that any Democrats carry flags with Swastikas on them. I also doubt that the right wing nut cases that carry Swastikas around are republicans, although some of them may be ignorant enough to think they are.

      What we seem to disagree about is Trump and the method necessary to accomplish the same goals.

      I’m only slightly left of center and used to be an independent.

      Trump changed that. Today I’m Democrat.

    • @Zeek Banistor I think the electoral college cheated us. Hillary won by 3 million votes. Trump is so incompetent – he should have never been President of the US. Even if you do not like Biden/Harris – the US cannot take 4 more years of this incompetent fool. Please Vote – you are smart – you should consider office and help make the needed changes where you are. Not voting for Biden is a vote for trump. Vote Science, Vote Truth, Vote for Rule of Law, Vote for Common Decency, Vote for the US Constitution, Vote for our Military, Vote for Liberty and Justice for ALL. – not an incompetent fool who received a 72 million dollar refund but only paid $1500.00 in taxes in the past 10 years. Vote to get your money back. But please Vote.

    • 100%

    • Go TRUMP!!

    • I wonder how much outrage journalists make? And what are they going to do if Slow Joe wins?

  7. President bone spurs is clearly stating” INSURRERECTION ACT”👺👺👺

  8. Best news ever. Failed his country Failed Himself gonna get what he deserves

    • Why are you still feeding from the MSM Silo of misinformation? This is the same channel that told Americans Hilary will be president.Wrong! Trump Russian Collusion Wrong. Instead the” Accusers were the Colluders” Trump will be impeached again Wrong! This is what they are not telling you ,Real news.

  9. The ‘Day of the Rat’ is coming with a sordid account of major criminal activity conducted by the Trump Org

  10. Zokizzy Foshizzy | October 10, 2020 at 4:49 AM | Reply

    I cannot wait to see Trump try to “fake news” his way out of federal court and debt collectors.

    • @Chasmal Report the tweet as hatmful

    • Zokizzy Foshizzy exactly and all the countries like South Korea had under 100 deaths during the first wave unlike us who haven’t stopped the first wave. It must have been the plan all along. Be nice to the countries China has despised for years as a stark example of freedoms for the Chinese people to see. While in his communist authoritarian dictatorship he attacks the country where the leader gushes all over him and supports Xi locking up 3 +MILLION Muslims in concentration camps. Maybe the millions Trump inc owes China personally came due and Trump could not pay up so they decided to send us the “China virus”. A much more virulent strain that only attacks morons in red hats that refuse to wear masks.

    • Cody Jarvis 😂😂😂 ok delusions of grandeur. Trumps avoiding the debate, trying to cheat steal and lie seems like he knows he’s got this in the bag. Those 16 national polls points he’s behind mean nada. Too bad we are the majority and we say tuff tit tees we Despise everything he stands for.. pretty much nothing

      @Trump IS the HOAX okay and none of this made it to the debates or to the totally run democratic news corporations like cnn,abc,cbs,? I guess they kept it covered up and controlled all the news and info.That makes sense

    • @Truth seeker Johnson:
      WOW, you really can twist yourself into a pretzel, trying to rationalize his criminality, can’t you? Did you used to be a circus contortionist?

    • Lol Trump 2020 he already got it won

    • You must be delusional or have you been drinking Clorox bwahahaha 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
      Biden and Kamala Harris 2020🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

    • I think his behavior all along has been the result of mental illness,

  12. At last debate, trump looked desperate, or obsessed to win. Not like a man who is passionate about his policies because he wants to help lead the country. Presidency is his ticket to help himself. That everyday Americans can’t see this is astonishing.

    • Victor Johnson | October 10, 2020 at 3:12 PM | Reply

      Best thing he could do is die. Case closed on all his crimes.

    • President Trump will win by a landslide victory because the silent majority are behind him. He has done more for all America than his predecessors. He created the greatest economy with the highest employment rate and highest wages in 50 years, for Blacks ,Hispanics and Asians. He rebuilt the strongest military force on the planet, put a stop to the endless wars that enriched many on both sides of the aisle. in congress. Neutralised Nrth Korea brought peace to Israel and their Arab neighbours after 70 years, Built the wall in time to prevent illegal aliens spreading Covid 19. Only this time he will make our economy even greater.

      @gypsy gypsy I remember the Democrats tried but didn’t have a case once the evidence was presented. Shocking isn’t it? That a group of the brightest minds in America would tolerate the willful misleading of the American public.

    • kitty mccollum | October 11, 2020 at 2:02 AM | Reply

      @Good congress is made up of the house and the Senate correct?

    • @kitty mccollum correct, most don’t understand that. Most refer to the house as congress and the senate as two separate bodies. As I believe the original poster was referring to.

      You are welcome.

    • @kitty mccollum I see you are a righty. Regeneron! Take it! It’s healthy for you! Next cure for covid! Makes you strong like trump!

      Trumps ordered 100s of thousands of units to be produced so the the American people can enjoy Regeneron! Even thou it’s made from stems cells from aborted fetuses. Lol! Moral right my foot! It only took three abortions to heal the supreme leader!

    • @kitty mccollum Are still crying about Hillary’s email? Ha! That’s funny! The russian investigation was the most successful investigation by a special council in American history!

      The impeachment was solid, btw. It was just the tow the line senate that sold out our democracy!

      what are you talking about? Trumps campaign met hundreds of times with the russians.
      Remember “russia if you are listening”…traitor Trump.
      Trump lost his ability to lift russian sanctions for a reason.
      Trump sided with russia NOT THE US….

    The impeached fraudster now realizes that turning his “Howard-Stern-fake-president” prank into reality was a seriously bad idea. His adult children know him and should not have encouraged him to embark on this “fake president hoax” and damage this country in the process. Real lives have been affected by this self-serving Pinocchio; Therefore, we have zero sympathy!

    • I really want to appreciate Mr. Daniel, my account manager, who is the best operator for helping me achieve all my dreams in life. It helped me get back all the money I lost. Today I am living in my own apartment, having a good life with my children, doing things that I could not do. I’m very happy to meet you sometime sir and God bless whoever referred you to me. Thank you. Whoever is reading this should contact him too, you can reach him on Instagram @Danielwrightfx or reach him on WhatsApp: +17865272947 and thank me later

    • Mark Hill Donald trump colluded with the Russians. No, Hillary did to fool you and win the presidency. treasonous. Donald Trump called white nationalists “ good people”. Already debunked lie. Donald Trump plans to get rid of the “pre existing” clause: lie. . . . Let’s just go back to the first one. Hillary and the DNC paid money and tried to put political rivals in jail to support her 4 year long Russian collusion lie. Joe Biden promised that his tax plan would not triple your taxes , yet simply removing Trumps tax cuts would do that. So he lied. And yes he is a stable genus. Who brokered a brilliant Mid East peace ✌️ lan That was signed. He orchestrated TWO trade deals that even Bidden approved off. Do you believe it was fair and just that Hillary and the DNC would weaponize the department of Justice , the FBI lie to the FISA court to win your vote? The Durham repot is coming out soon. You’ll be needing new excuses soon so by all means stay tuned to this channel.

    • This one man has turned this country upside down. It will decades to recover because his enablers will still be in office. Now we know how our country will end. From the inside out.

    • Well said.

    • Cornelia Auer you can’t be so dumb as to think that the trump organization only pays income taxes on Trumps income. I suppos you think that all the people he employs and provide a living for don’t pay taxes either. One person who doesn’t pay taxes in the U. S . . . Christopher Steel. It was only a million dollars to make you think that our president was a traitor. But Democrats will break any law to win.

  19. Trump is just lying to cover his butt. He will say and do anything to cheat in this election

    • @Captain do some research and you will find how the dems have played games for years with voter fraud..
      Although it didnt work for 2016, did it?

    • @Jeff Woods Yah know…I don’t have to research anything to know what Trump is up to. If you are so desperate to use whataboutism…than show the proof. Either way, it shows there is little left in defense of crooked Donnie and crew.

    • This is the same channel that told Americans Hilary will be president.Wrong! Trump Russian Collusion Wrong. Instead the” Accusers were the Colluders” Trump will be impeached again Wrong! This is what they are not telling you ,Real news.

    • Sleepyjoe just said the American ppl don’t deserve😂😂😂there is ur dictator hehehe lmmfgdao

    • @Captain your post says it are a short sighted, brainwashed leftist..Maybe try something new and use your brain, investigate and learn that there are 2 sides to everything and somewhere inbetween there’s your thoughts on the matter..
      You may have personal opinions about this President but, he works and has worked even through the negative publicity and bs..

  20. Hes so anti-freedom, trump is a bad man, how, people still cant see this, goes to show, party is everything to certain people , they dont care, as long as its their guy, if we enter a, Dictatorship, I always believed, it was the republicans. , who will be responsible, for ending freedom, then he can do anything, people aren’t smart enough, to get, we need 2 parties, to keep each one, honest, goes for Dems….. why is this hard to get.
