  1. Never trust a former president who wears Jim Bakker’s haircut and Tammy Faye’s makeup.

    1. I’ve despised this guy since the day he rocked up in Scotland selling snake oil to there natives he’s the worse of dogs in a pack that’s rabid

    1. @James Smith name one thing Biden has done that has helped Americans. I’ll wait. Was it inflation? Stock market drop? Insane gas prices? Paying hamas to shoot rockets at our allies? Destroying the southern border? He’s done nothing to help Americans. Or Maybe you live at home with no responsibility’s and you are just brainwashed.

    2. @Joshua Everett so nothing. You can’t name a single thing. His achievements match your IQ. Zero.

    3. @Punchy Fartbox Adorable. You think you’re scoring points here? You’re asking me about something I wasn’t responding to? Classic. And you have to resort to nonsense insults even then? You seem to be a walking Dunning-Kreuger case study. How do you make it through a day without accidentally hurting yourself?

    1. “Truininanashahabadepressure.”
      -Joe Biden

      Well, it beats, “You know…you know the thing.”

    2. @paul rollings Since last year, I saw a lot of things I never thought could happen. Maybe that will be one of them.

    3. @Helene Flamand Sadly, the rest of the world looked upon America in total disbelief with the Donald Trump saga and the elections itself; the George Floyd saga; and then the attack against the Capital. America certainly provided some intense viewing for the rest of the world.

  2. If you have a son in high school who is having girl problems, just tell him that it is ok. Matt Gaetz didn’t have his first high school girlfriend until he was 35.

  3. The people who delighted in telling Democrats to “get over” Hillary losing in 2016.

    Are the same people who are re-counting Arizona’s ballots in 2021.

    1. @John Lindblom
      No you didn’t get the $200. It has to be in the form of a question. 😅

      “What is hypocrisy ?”

    1. @Mainely Statutes of limitations should be frozen for the time a president is in office. The OLC memo isn’t law, therefore there should be a compensatory factor, otherwise a criminal president could get away with anything.

    2. @Linda Broomhead ⬛️ State charges are extremely important. Any future republican president would immediately issue a corrupt pardon to get Trump off the hook. ⬛️ GA is even better than NY because the GA governor does not have clemency powers — it is up to an independent board to recommend pardons. ⬛️

    3. @Bruce Molyneux yes, Faux and other far right anti-democracy propaganda outlets are playing you. They are like Chinese or Russian propaganda machines! Wake up dude.

    1. Yeah, I’d love it more than anything, but it’s not gonna happen. Those qyoo weirdos would lose their freaking minds.

    2. @Susan Maggiora I also think that he’ll get away with it as he always has. He will never be held accountable for his crimes.

  4. He moved from home state NY to FL saying he couldn’t afford the taxes while President

    1. I don’t know how he’s even able to afford his legal bills now.
      10 active lawsuits and 4 criminal investigations.. Lots and lots of lawyers.
      1. E. Jean Carroll Defamation and Federal Tort Claims Act Litigation
      2. Summer Zervos Defamation Suit
      3. Mary Trump Fraud Litigation
      4. Panama Hotel Fraud and Tax Litigation
      5. Doe v. The Trump Corporation Class Action
      6. DC Civil Suit over Misuse of 2017 Inauguration Funds
      7. Bennie Thompson Incitement Suit for Jan. 6 Capitol Attack
      8. Eric Swalwell Incitement Suit for Jan. 6 Riots
      9. Capitol Police Suit for Jan. 6 Riots
      10. NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund Voting Rights Case for Post-Election Actions

      13. DC AG Incitement Criminal Investigation
      14. Fulton County, Georgia Criminal Election Influence Investigation

    2. @Leonie Romanes He has a history of not paying contractors and employees so at least he’s consistent. He’s garbage.

    1. @Sylvie Walker what a great blunder, Trump runs on the platform he didn’t think anyone would buy into just to boost his brand, then wins and creates all kinds of attention to his crooked business practices and possibly ends up in jail…..the greatest comedy of errors

    1. His narcissistic ego wouldn’t allow to do that because it would make him look like the weak man that he is instead of the strong man he postures to the world at large.

    2. I don’t hear much about Harvey these days. Old fat white guys don’t do particularly well in prison.

    1. @gary Stoltzenberg Guess what Gary there was no evidence the laptop existed and we are not talking about the Biden’s right?

    2. no 1 is going to jail mabye house arrest youre all sick and this will cause permanent dmg

    3. @gary Stoltzenberg this laptop thing is lame…Rudy Guilani mentions hard drive when he gets raided…if he does have them it will be tossed out because it will be called tainted evidence , even this repair shop that said they had it…the repair guy is blind you would think vision is the biggest part of computer repair , however he let this device go to someone else other than law enforcement….that in itself is illegal that act is and is called identity theft no shop that repairs computers or anything that is a communication device cannot sell a device that someone left and failed to come back for…all info has to be wiped before you sell it…you can thank the shop and Rudy Giuliani if there was actual proof and these 2 idiots didn’t turn this over to law enforcement before they made their claims just dropped the ball…Rudy Guilani knows this yet he pulled this lie which any defense attorney would have a field day tearing this apart…

  5. Trump: “You knew I was a snake when you accepted me.”

    Me: Look out Weisselberg, he’s gonna finish you off with the final venomous bite.

  6. “allen, it’s terrible what they’re doing to us, allen. allen, I just need 17800 more. Just 17800 more, allen. if you just do that, allen, they’ll like you”

    1. Begging is a terrible suit for the fat orange man. Maybe fluorescent jumpsuits will look better on him.

  7. The reason for the insurrection….. he was terrified of losing immunity. He didn’t care who was killed or hurt.
