    Trump continues to lie. Lies to try swaying public opinion. That was America’s largest lynch mob

  2. The father of lies strikes again.

  3. Give me a break. Anything but his voice! Even my dogs are howling for mercy.

    • Awwww lo.nina🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶

      😄Yeah. The voice is hideous. Its only competitors? The hideous yammerers on Fox. For the sake of your dogs, and for the rest of us, I’m praying for those horrible voices to magically go away.

      @Billy Joyner Thank you. If we ignore the threat, as Blind Bat’s supercilious comment suggests we should, the threat is free to grow and flourish.

      @Billy Joyner Blind Bat meant STUPID Bat — but he’s too stupid to get it right.

      @Megan Sainsbury 😄 I wish I could have flown away to get away from his voice. I just fast forward.

    The GOP at this point is like well…we’re already neck deep in raw sewage after 4 years with guy, let’s just dive in head first!

      @Victor Pradha Everyone knows there was Chinese interference in this election. Everybody knows Democrats falsified vote counts in their districts. It’s OBVIOUS. Libs know it too. They just don’t care.

    • I think you’re right.

    • Daniel Morales | March 26, 2021 at 8:54 PM | Reply

      @End The Matriarchy Sounds like a different language because those of us who refuse to make common cause with those who wave the confederate flag, carry a swastika or brandish a noose will sound alien to those that do!

    • Victor Pradha | March 26, 2021 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      @End The Matriarchy So Russia didn’t screw with the election in favor of tRump, but China somehow miraculously managed to swing MILLIONS of votes in Biden’s favor. Also…you can’t falsify vote tallies because hard copy ballots are kept for recount and audit purposes. And you can’t fabricate ballots because they all have special water marks per county and individualized ballot control numbers the ranges for which are assigned on a per county basis. Thus, without knowing the ballot control number range, nobody can fabricate a ballot for county and NOT get caught. Also, each ballot has a bar code which is specific to the county and there are 2 steps. The bar code validates the ballot as being for the county AND then the ballot marks are read into the system. The hard copy ballots are kept as well. So THERES no way to invent dozens, much less hundreds or thousands of fake ballots or fabricate vote counts because a paper trail is there as a safety check.

      Let go of your delusions. tRump lost because he played the violin as 550,000 Americans died from a virus he denied existed, then kept insisting was going to “disappear” by April, then June, then August, then October, then by Christmas. And he pushed snake oil remedies like hydroxychloroquine and injectable disinfectant. The guy literally stood there dumbfounded and clueless as people died by the thousands, even tens of thousands weekly. Duhnald tRump LOST due to his incompetence and willful dereliction of duty!

      @Victor Pradha WoW!
      That was a fine demonstration of the use of

      Keep up the good work 👍

  5. I’m seeing soooo much love….. You would have to be disturbed to see any love there. It IS beyond sick.

    Hugging with a flag pole. Kissing them with fire extinguishers. Holding hands with bear spray….
    Cant you just feel the love……..

    • @Yeesss Sirrr There were BLM protests around the world you know, in dozens of countries, all without issue, well there were a few incidents in London but nowhere else that was reported. Have zero idea what chop/Chaz is.

    • Yeesss Sirrr | March 26, 2021 at 8:14 PM | Reply

      @Jonas P On June 9, an area of around six blocks in downtown Seattle became known as CHAZ, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. It was formed after several nights of intense, sometimes violent standoffs between police and protesters ~ Source CNN

      @Jonas P Thank you!!! I have been saying that from day 1. They just don’t want to think that their actions can make America look like a shithole country.

    • @Yeesss Sirrr
      Most of the damage caused this last year was by looting; which had nothing to do with the protests in the vast majority of cases. You’re conflating separate phenomena just because they occurred at the same time.

    • @keir farnum arson ,looting, destruction gtfoh with that deflection

  7. keith zebrowski | March 26, 2021 at 9:31 AM | Reply

    I definitely didn’t see any hugging or kissing. I saw bearspray and windows and doors being smashed. I saw a guy with his feet on the speakers desk. He lies like no other

  8. It’s worth remembering that Fox News let him say that, unchallenged. All your networks can be criticized – but Fox News alone tacitly condones domestic terrorism.

  9. DJT loves police officers but only when they’re going after those “other” people

    it is absolutely necessary to show this. do not allow any gap for people to slip into an alternative reality

  11. When the insurrectionists were repeatedly shouting “Hang Mike Pence !!” as they attacked the Capitol Hill, I’m pretty sure they posed “zero threat”. LOL !.

      @Milton Bradley their reaction would be nothing but non stop spamming on youtube “you’re next….blah blah blah”. In reality, if they had, our military would’ve been called in and put some lead into those freaks. I would’ve loved to see a few Apache helicopters unload their 30mm’s on that crowd.

    • BlackWind1909 | March 26, 2021 at 5:01 PM | Reply

      @Milton Bradley if people were killed you would have dealt with a much different situation, especially if the Vice President and the Speaker of the House would have been killed and congress people. For one, the electoral college votes would have likely not been counted and the democratic process would have stopped. For second, at that point that would have been a full on, unquetionable coup attempt, somewhat successful and It might have brought similar crazy people to create chaos all around the US. At that point the Lord knows what Trump would have done as a response. Maybe martial law, which according to some he was considering anyway. It could have been much worse, that’s for sure.

      Well, they weren’t a threat to anyone Trump cared about!

    • Heather Dequetteville | March 26, 2021 at 6:33 PM | Reply

      @BlackWind1909 If people were killed? 5 died. What,s your point?

    • BlackWind1909 | March 26, 2021 at 6:42 PM | Reply

      @Heather Dequetteville Sorry, we were talking about congress people, or the VP or someone like that, I know people died. Read the rest, you’ll get the context.

  12. lol “hugging and kissing”. Jesus Christ what absolute derangement.

  13. They Built a GALLOWS w/ a NOOSE hanging from it on Capital Grounds… Said on a National News Channel that Pelosie and Schumer needed to be led out and Hung for TREASON and they were CHANTING …”Hang MIKE PENCE” while they were storming through the Capital Building… JUST HOW IS THAT “Zero Threat”

    “Persecuting those people.” No, they’re prosecuting those people. Nothing could demonstrate Trump’s disregard for the law , more than this quote.

      @agf1700 Good thing we don’t live in any of those countries, huh?

      @Heather Dequetteville I haven’t seen any of the BLM and Antifa insurrectionists who caused 2 billion dollars worth of damage to the country, and murdered dozens of Americans being hunted down. They were most definitely trying to effect a political change with violence. If you don’t know that’s the definition of a terrorism, you should. I wonder if the FBI hadn’t been so busy hunting down, and persecuting Joe Biden’s political enemies, would they have had more time to keep an eye on what Amaud Al Assisi was up to. If your doing one thing, you can’t be doing another. Can you?

    • Heather Dequetteville | March 26, 2021 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @Henry Feilding Okay, you, clearly don,t understand the definition of insurrection or the meaning of antifa. End of.

    • Henry Feilding | March 26, 2021 at 8:33 PM | Reply

      @Heather Dequetteville I understand that BLM and Antifa were attempting to topple the government, and bring Donald Trump down. That’s the very definition of insurrection.

    • Stable genius … using wrong words again 😂

    “They’re persecuting some of those people.” THey should start at the top and persecute the lunatic.

    • He meant ‘prosecuting’. But that would be uttering the truth, and he would burst into eternal flames if he spoke the truth! So he had to change it. You know Donald, he has all the best words. He knows words.

    • Ken Albertsen | March 26, 2021 at 1:43 PM | Reply

      careful, calling him a lunatic. He may use that an excuse to avoid prosecution.

    • @Ken Albertsen Yeah, I know. At least if he claimed it, he would be admitting the truth.

    • @Phil Groves No. He definitely meant “persecuting”. They are being prosecuted, but Trump cultists (including Trump) have created a culture of straight, white, Christian conservative grievance, where they’re always the real victims, even when they’re literally maiming & killing people. To them, prosecution, or any other forms of accountability= persecution of the “righteous” right/ white.

  16. Trump didn’t even have the common decentcy to pay his respects to the officer who died when he laid in state.

    If Trump calls those hugs and kisses, it is no wonder that Melania sleeps in a separate bedroom🤭

  18. Wilamina Brown | March 26, 2021 at 11:47 AM | Reply

    Trump doesn’t realize he can’t lie his way out of his actions anymore. He doesn’t have Barr shutting down legal actions against him.

    • They hugged & kissed them to death! Hundreds ended up in the hospital. Officer Sicknick died & more. There’s a real zero–Trump–always was a ZERO! Prison is too good for that air-head!-Or anybody who backs him.

    • everyone (and I mean everyone) needs to realize Trump is insane – he has absolutely no touch with reality ~ his mind is gone.

    He’s a chronic liar who uses the excuse, “if “I” believe it, it ain’t a lie”. Hope he has the opportunity to scrawl that on a prison wall someday soon.

  20. Trump still using Hitler’s playbook: lie, lie, lie and eventually people will think it’s the truth!!!!! Let’s put him in prison where he belongs!!!!!

      You know what…I have been saying the same comment for FOUR YEARS. The only step Trump didn’t start-up…is the concentration camps.

    • Carol Lemieux | March 26, 2021 at 11:17 PM | Reply

      yes! imprison these cons–including McConnell whose actions for decades has severely damaged Democracy.

    • We are sharing the same whispers of fear and disgust as the common German people during the 1930s who were cast in the shadow of the Nazi Regime.
      We need to remind ourselves of history and the cost of turning a blind eye.
