  1. “I don’t know the guy, but look, I want everyone to know I’ll spring ’em from the slammer if they do me a favour. And look, only for non-flippers okay.”

  2. Trump “I don’t know him, but he is a fraud just like me, so I don’t care, because I am a criminal myself too so I love to pardon criminals just like me.”

    • lmao

    • Get back on the boat Noah, you are all wet.

      Tell the truth even you know Trumps done nothing but ride in Obama’s upward trend. He’s screwed up foreign policies, dialed back up the environmental pollution and global scorching and picked the peoples pickets every way he could with sled dealing. This nut didn’t win the popular vote do he doesn’t earn the peoples respect since he’s done nothing to prove them wrong. Now Hecs pardoning fellow Democrat criminals to justify releasing his personal criminal friends. Now he calls himself the chief law enforcement officer. No, because he breaks law doesn’t mean he’s the chief. “I chose to be”, “I am the chosen one” me myself & I are his 3 sole mates and nobody else.

    • Right. Trump is a fraud. That’s why he is the most effective President in modern times. Stupid troll.

  3. Of course he’s going to pardon Roger Stone. I’d be surprised if he didn’t.

      I agree… I also expect him to pardon Roger Stone, Republican politician, after he was convicted on seven counts, including lying to investigators, tampering with witnesses…

      “President Donald Trump criticized the Justice Department for prosecuting his longtime associate Roger Stone and recommending that Stone serve up to nine years in prison. He claims Stone did “nothing” and “nobody even can define what he did,” but that’s his opinion.

      The Justice Department summed it up in November when the jury rendered its verdict: “Stone was found guilty of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”

      All of the charges stemmed from Stone’s attempts to thwart the House intelligence committee’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    • Moscow kkk member “Interested party”, you say all of that like it’s wrong.

      IT IS NOT!!!!

      Stone will never walk one step as a criminal.

    • Moscow kkk member “Kyle Towers”, nope 👎🏻 you’re lying.

  4. Trump making it very clear the 1% will continue to enjoy a different set of laws than you and I as long as he is president.

      I want to see what these “PARAGONS OF CORRUPTION”, with a resume of FRAUD, EXTORTION, TAX FRAUD, are gonna do for him when released from prison… It will be interesting to see if they join the Republican party, support both GOP and Election efforts…

  5. I heard ted Bundy was a nice person too.

    • Tingle Matthews | February 18, 2020 at 6:05 PM | Reply

      No, that was Al Bundy.

    • And if he was still alive Trump would probably pardon him too.

    • Trump would commute his sentence too saying death was too harsh!

    • @Tony Montana Well he assaulted and killed women so Trump probably thinks of Bundy as a hero. Truly disgusting. The GOP does nothing while this corruption continues. It’s going to be up to the voters to vote Blue across the board. Hopefully, Russia won’t interfere. Although I doubt it. There is a reason why McConnell refuses to even hear the bills passed by the House for election security.

  6. “I dont know him!” yeah right you both have the same hair stylist.

    Sounds familiar” I don’t know him very well”
    I e he’s my best buddy and I’m looking after him
    Certainly draining the swamp
    He’s clearing the way to pardon Roger Stone

  8. “I only met him a couple of times.” “He served on _The Apprentice_ “. …followed by “I don’t know him.” Classic Trump.

    • Do you know everyone you meet?

      Classic low IQ

      @Daniel F aw the lengths you have to go to to justify your president killing brown children kidnapped at the border. Just watch the video of the teen dying of a treatable fever in your government’s custody after all trump is the only president to give his base free porn.

    • Trump should pardon Avinatti so he can run for president and win the democrats nomination.

    He’s putting his inner circle together…..

  10. Whenever Trump says: “I don’t know him/her” = He’s/She’s a fellow criminal and I know him quite intimately.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton
      Well whether he is a Democrat doesn’t matter. Unlike Republicans we don’t stand by them even when they are corrupt.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton Fun Fact: Republicans and Democrats both can be criminals.

    • @Teresa H Yes! It’s so funny when Republicans point out Democrat criminals like we are supposed to be “ride or die” like them. The dif between Republicans and Democrats, is Democrats don’t support criminals EVEN if they are Democrats WTH!

    • @Brittany Dietzel And you’re a dollar a ride mattress back

    “Don’t know him…”. Lying MFer

  12. Kinda destroys that “concerned about corruption” talking point they’ve been trying to push on us.

  13. I’m so sick of this narcissistic, entitled, orange atrocity!

    • @D.A. Risse you forgot Trump never testified and blocked witnesses and evidence. Cannot claim innocence if it wasn’t proven. Can’t claim “no corruption” when Senators publicly state they “will not be an impartial juror” with the intent to work with the president. Impeached Pres. Trump.

    • Trump should pardon Avinatti so he can run for president and win the democrats nomination.

    • America: we’re a country of laws, our founding fathers blah blah blah, we’re the strongest democracy blah blah blah.

      World: HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA 🤣🤣🤣

    • It was obama who once said, “There are consequences to elections”….see you in Nov. lol

      S Miller you forgot to mention the witnesses were not allowed to be cross examined cause’ democrats knew their witnesses were lying for them, and democrats pushed the impeachment with no evidence, so they didnt do their job in the house

  14. Growing up in America until I was 21 and now living in Australia I can’t believe all this. What has happened?

    • Interested party | February 18, 2020 at 9:46 PM | Reply

      TRUMP is what has happened… Election 2020 is 9 months away, and I can’t WAIT!!! I agree with you… I have NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE IN AMERICA… I don’t think America HAS EVER seen anything like this before… Trump also has a following; they remind me of a BRAINWASHED CULT… many of them cannot spell; I guess their reading/comprehension/writing skills to be about 8th grade, which speaks to their IQ… Many use name calling and hurl slanderous claims against DEMS, then try to force him down our throats, try to convert DEMS… OMG!!! On a positive note, we have got some AWESOME DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES running for President, intelligent, experienced professionals… I am counting the days to election… bring the DEMS on…

  15. 45 just loves thugs. The scummier they are the better he likes them.

  16. How’s Linsey Graham gonna swing this one for cheese face.

  17. He probably sees himself in these criminals.

      @PK Cazadores You’re just a terrible person Just like Trump is no integrity at all . You don’t watch fox news. You just nearly subscribe to it .No You’re a moron. I guess fox news 10 Phoenix is not on your subscription f-ing idiot.

      @PK Cazadores Tell me how do liars like you live with yah selves? You surely would make a great character witness 😂😂😂😂😂.

    • @PK Cazadores and your what we call an incel

  18. Lucifer opening Pandora’s box…releasing all his criminal angels from justice…wake up

  19. They let this man obstruct the law because now he really thinks now he’s gotten away with everything. Now he feels he can be a dictator!

    • Interested party | February 18, 2020 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      I read Trump wants to revoke TERM LIMITS for a President so that he can remain President indefinitely… Others have warned in remarks I have read that we have a dictator in the making… I agree… AMERICAN NEEDS TO TAKE ITS POWER BACK, CLEAN HOUSE ON ELECTION DAY… THIS IS JUST MORE OF THE SAME… After firing several staff members that testified against him (impeachment), Trump tweeted, quoting a poet… making a statement about messing with “THE KING”. I Judge explained to him that HE IS NO KING… Don’t think he gets that… REMEMBER WHAT JUST HAPPEN WITH GOP SENATORS VOTING FOR ACQUITTAL, VOTING FOR HIS TRIAL NOT TO ALLOW EVIDENCE AND WITNESSES… What the hell kind of trial DOES NOT ALLOW EVIDENCE OR WITNESSES… I think we can see a pattern here… THE PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE THEIR POWER BACK, CLEAN HOUSE ON ELECTION DAY!!!

  20. of course the whole deal with him doing these criminals favors is because he is expecting something in return.
