  1. I never watched any of the freak show.

  2. I watched the DNC, I never gave the RNC a second of my time.

  3. Wow, the audience preferred logic, empathy and the promise of a more equal and just America over coked up, screaming and lying sycophants praising the president who let 180,000 die on his watch?

    • @Ellen Peba don’t worry about that lol

    • Well if you take out the democratic ran states, with democratic mayors, democratic governors, and democratic city councils, death rates are non existant

    • @Otay Buckwheat Just happened to stumble on this comment of yours, tb ♪ cnn, msnbc, thehill, goodmorningamerica–for the most part, those are the only Y-T channels I go to now. I’m not here to make friends, or get “subscribers”–I come to engage with Communists such as yourself…do you know Jesus, tb?? BTW, as soon as Trump is RE-elected, I’ll go back among among Conservatives ♥

    • @James Collier Did you see that CDC report a couple days ago?? 6% of reported deaths were due EXCLUSIVELY to the virus: that’s LESS than 10 THOUSAND people.

    • @Ellen Peba yeah. Figures. This will all be over Nov 4th

  4. His ratings were low because we’re all tired of his BS.

    Only he and he alone can fix it…oops no he didn’t.

  6. I didn’t watch a single minute of the Republican National Convention.

      Right, because Xi Jinping 🇨🇳 of China has a documented sexual relationship
      with POTUS. Your sexual fantasy with Xi is noted.

    • Trump needs to put Americans before Israeli interests ie kushner

    • Scarlet Compton Bellew | August 31, 2020 at 11:47 AM | Reply

      trump still owes cities for security and use of buildings since 2016

    • @Robert Guirguis Biden
      2020 Trumps convention was terrible .Nothing but lies .

  8. The criminal in chief is fighting for his life to stay out of prison, he has no agenda, none, he could care less hundreds of thousands of Americans die from Covid19, all he cares is money and greed

  9. that must be getting under his skin more than anything else!
    Indeed, dems should keep publicly hammering on that till the election. It will drive him crazy…er than he already is!

  10. RNC lied so much on the first night, many of us didn’t want a do-over, listening to that blatant BS!

      You are right – much of it contradicted what we were told on MSNBC, CNN and at DNC convention. Therefore = lies.

    • eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 | August 29, 2020 at 11:08 PM | Reply

      @Jackpot Clothing Much of it contradicted what we have seen with our own eyes and heard with our own ears. Bonespurs hates it when the media shows what he’s been saying and doing in his own words and by his own actions, Yuri.

    • Jackpot Clothing | August 29, 2020 at 11:17 PM | Reply

      eurekajim yes of course. You have seen and heard it on the main stream media with your own eyes and own ears. Just like Nick Sandmann story.
      No one argues that. 🖕🏻
      Obviously you are too lazy or stupid to confirm from different sources when the CNN or MSNBC serves you anything outrageous.
      Typical dumb Biden base.

      @Jackpot Clothing Ah, Yes. The “Truth isn’t Truth” and the “What you’re seeing and hearing isn’t True” rebuttal.
      Didn’t expect that one. /sarc
      It’s not like I don’t actually live here in America and am experiencing it for myself, Yuri.

    *Weekly reminder:* Trump doesn’t want 4 more years of presidency. He wants 4 more years of immunity.

      @Er Ker I don’t need to. Your the one spreading BS that you can’t back up.

    • DigitalSynapse0101 you back to your safe space warrior

    • @Cliff Roberson
      “Statutes freeze.”..
      That was my understanding… They
      resume clocking on term end. Why would he think he can hide out to run them out?
      Who’s advising him on NY?

    • @Vote him Out I have not heard that statutes freeze. I have heard numerous sources state his re-election would get him past a few indictments. I watch PBS and MSNBC. I watch ABC evening news and read some CNN online. Never heard that statutes freeze. I hope they do. As for tax crimes however, I have always heard that they go back what 9 years…. But if they find fraud, they have the power to go back to day one. State crimes, I an wondering if indictments can be sealed and frozen until he gets out of office. I just don’t know enough about the law. (Of course I wasn’t planning on breaking the law like he does either) lol

    • Make America Sane Again incredibly true.

  12. “His government was constantly in chaos, with officials having no idea what he wanted them to do, and nobody was entirely clear who was actually in charge of what.”

    “He procrastinated wildly when asked to make difficult decisions, and would often end up relying on gut feeling, leaving even close allies in the dark about his plans.”

    “His “unreliability had those who worked with him pulling out their hair,”… ”

    “This meant that rather than carrying out the duties of state, they spent most of their time in-fighting and back-stabbing each other in an attempt to either win his approval or avoid his attention altogether, depending on what mood he was in that day.”

    This sounds like Trump and his administration, but it’s actually a description of Hitler.

      “Sorry to have to provide the reality check again,” he said.⤵️
      The documentary film-maker & Democrat Michael Moore has warned that Donald Trump appears to have such momentum in some battleground states that liberals risk a repeat of 2016 when so many wrote off Trump only to see him grab the White House.

      Really? The same China on which he imposed all those sanctions and called out for cheating and stealing? They want him to win. Why not ask China Joe about that? C’mon man. LOL.

      Xi Jinping 🇨🇳 is Geriatric Joe’s biggest communist supporter.
      Biden promised, if elected China could continue to steal USA patents.
      Problem is Biden thinks he’s running against Ronald Reagan.

    • Ravendark jolls | August 30, 2020 at 11:06 PM | Reply

      @Randall Small don’t bother with the analysis of MSNBC viewers as MSNBC themselves have been wrong since 2016. 😂😂

    • The Lincoln project is not a reliable source. Again the dum. Party doesn’t know how to source information.

  14. LOL “…and you just know, that is going to make him absolutely crazy”… LOL.. yeah, I get satisfaction from knowing the too….

    Will Make Him Crazy??…That Train Left The Station Many Decades Ago.

  16. Oh the con man is going to be upset. Wonder what lies he’ll come up with to turn that into a tremendous success!👎

  17. You can’t “work out the kinks” when the biggest “kink” is the President himself.

  20. If I were Biden, I’ll have a campaign slogan that says “The CON game is over.”
