#Trump #Military #MorningJoe


  1. Republicans will eagerly sacrifice the troops and the country to sabotage anyone who opposes them. That’s how evil they are.

    1. As George Carlin said, the ‘Publicans are obsessed with fetuses and abortion, but once those fetuses reach military age, they don’t care about them at all.

    2. @Gaz TinTin ….better re-check those numbers….covid death toll in the U.S. is more than 580K as 0f May 16, 2021…….

    3. They are ruled by Evil trump is the Antichrist while Jesus is Antifa- see my books The Art of Betrayal by God and The Book of Judas

    4. President Obama promised to shut down Guantanamo Bay, that housed people collected by the President Bush and also the Obama administration…… President’s Obama and Bush are part of the same ideology apparently? Both President Obama and President Bush should be brought up on war crimes. But then again you people only watch and read giant corporations actling like real news media….. What a shame.

    5. It was Democrats who sacrifice our troops by prolonging wars with no hope of ending them. Vietnam was the classic example. We’ve had troops in Afghanistan and Iraq for many years. Once Bin Laden was killed, the Taliban, Al Quida and ISIS were weakened in Afghanistan, and Sadam was killed in Iraq, what was left to be gained, more dead and maimed American soldiers? Oh, by the way, it was the Democrats who made the national guard sleep in parking garages while they put up illegal immigrants in first star hotels, who also provided contaminated food to the troops after the Jan 6th riot at the capital, or did you conveniently forget these facts?

  2. His intention was to have the Military here, when his insurrection failed, he was willing and wanted to use the US Military as his personal police force, he wanted them on the street, when he issued the Marshall law orders.

    1. @Paul Wilson Donny Little Hanz expected his lop mercs to hang pence, the big J, and Pelosi. Then he would ‘liberate the capitol’ with the DC Guard, invoke the insurrection act, and declare martial law so he could issue PEAD and start the round-ups and disappearings. If you doubt that, look at the underbelly chatter and foreboding warnings of the traitQrs leading up to J6.

    2. That makes sense. I actually agree with pulling all of our troops around the world. Our troops are in places we should have never been in in the first place. To have the troops here so Trump can initiate Martial Law would be something he would think of.

    1. You could talk about Trump would be doing with vaccines once the country was vaccinated, except for the fact that I would be waiting till December to be vaccinated with states running incompetent programs, like Trump’s ‘testing’ program.

    2. Which Senators went to Moscow on the Fourth of July 2018? They went to ask for the Kremlins help. Thats whats behind the GOP becoming the GQP.

    1. @Rod I know Rod & you Trumpers will still be shouting fake news as he is led away for a nice long rest in the big house..JAIL Lol πŸ˜‰

    2. Don’t hold your breath brother. Would love it to happen, but I just can’t see it happening, no matter what evidence is found.

    3. I don’t know when we will have the joy of him doing the perp walk, but I do know those tiny grasping little fingers of his will be stirring as much trouble as he can in order to u determine Biden. He, Jared and Pompous were all pretty tight with Netanyahu. Someone wondered just a few days ago where he might flee to.

      I don’t think he’ll flee the country… he’d see that as a sucker loser option. Then I thought hmmm maybe Isreal because they appear welded to the US and Trump was pretty tight with Netanyahu… both corrupt to and through the bone.

      We’ll probably never know for certain re this, but it occurred to me after hearing re Israel and the Palestinians if Trump didn’t make a phone call.

      For quite some time now there is this constant chaos and all of it seems to be about undermining Biden in any way possible.

  3. If this was just 6 days after the election, it shows Trump knew he lost the election. The list reads like Putin’s Christmas list. Sorry Vlad, there is no Santa anymore. Closing the military hospital in Germany would result in loss of so many service personnel because the wounded from the Middle East are first sent there.

    1. @Robert Arthurs “gender sensitive dems”??? you might want to re-think that. The last gender sensitive political advocate being showcased in the media is Republican Trump supporter Caitlin Jenner. LOL!

    2. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Soooo Sorry Vlad….Americans sooooo GLAD
      Democracy is Wonderful!!!!!!!!!

    3. Who will betray whom.1st, Trump or Putin? Waterboardem. Terrorists. They asked for it. I wrote a chapter on this in The Art of Betrayal by God

    4. @Robert Arthurs I can confirm that fool my brother was took to Germany for emergency surgery before being flown to Virginia for his recovery

    5. @Robert Arthurs Trump lost, lost, lost, lost…. ALL claims to the contrary have been rejected by courts and /or fact checked to death. Rep’s second last move was to commit a violent attempted insurrection and last move is to manufacture evidence in a fake Cyber Ninja scam. BTW, did I mention how happy the entire world is that Dump lost? Lost. Now, all America needs to do is role play Old Yeller Old and put America out of its misery.

  4. So now we finally know what was discussed in meeting at Helsinki where no presidential aides could be present.

    1. @Eddie martinez Foreign Agent Giuliani reported to Foreign Agent Trump who reported to KGB Col. Vladimir Putin.

  5. I think the original copy was drafted by Vladimir Putin, this is truly incredible. And the Trump train rolls on.

    1. The Trump train is coming in hot a the station everyone better evacuate πŸŒ‹πŸš‚

    2. @Mad Mike please see my response to you. I’d posted it generally and don’t know if you’ve seen it re T and Putin.

  6. How do republicans even get one vote during elections? On almost every subject they disagree with the majority of Americans. We stopped a dictatorship last November. Our job is not done though…we better show up in 2022. Our beautiful country is still in grave danger

    1. @Santiago Pina and you act like there weren’t far more mass shootings under trump. There were, plus look at who is perpetrating those shootings.

    2. @Santiago Pina Trump caused a massive heart attack to the country, Biden and Harris have had to initiate emergency resuscitation for a country that was flat lined(dead) when the Russian installed orange turd( your false god, who cheats in every aspect of his life, even convinced you all he believed in God, believes using you, and your tax dollars to benefit himself is okay, obviously you think it’s okay too).
      I’ll pray for your recovery from the cult of the biggest loser, in the history of mankind.
      Be well

    3. @Santiago Pina you mean the country was dying under trump. Prices were rising under his presidency also. He deported a lot of people that do the kind of work employers are looking for that’s part of the reason they are having trouble filling these positions restaurant and labor positions. Even if trump were president it would probably be worse because he didn’t care about anyone but himself. Glad he’s gone .

    4. @Santiago Pina Now Santiago, were you keeping a check on the rapid decline of America through the 4 years of trump to the stage where it was an international joke? Did you watch as corporations and the very wealthy received tax breaks while the lower and middle income earners gained virtually nothing? What were you doing as he and his enablers encouraged his followers to attack the capitol and threaten the lives of elected representatives? How did you feel when trump had police forcibly clear demonstrators (as well as media and bystanders) so the president could walk across Lafayette Square to stand in front of St. John’s Church holding a Bible upside down? What questions did you raise then?

  7. Classic narcissism. He never deserved to be in power, and I’m so proud that my vote helped kick him out.

    1. @curtis wilson Trump always was going to end up in a trap he made for himself, and be angry about it too.

  8. He needed something after his Koup Klutz Klan members failed πŸ˜‚ can’t spell HATRED without RED HAT

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

    1. @Jen Vicinity I was about to question Pot Cal for straying off topic, until I saw your comment. It is totally off topic, but if one new person such as you can be made aware, then I must withhold my criticism. And I have seen the film and it is worth seeking out and was in fact available last I checked. If for any reason you cannot locate it contact me through my channel (on any page) for assistance. And if you have never heard of Harrt Anslinger, or seen _”Reefer Madness”,_ you should if you want the 411 on pot prohibition. Namaste.

    2. @Robert Arthurs We know you’re pleasuring yourself pretending you said something oh-so-clever and snarky, but Mama told you to stop eating out of the kitty litter box. You’re scaring the cat, and you’ll spoil your supper. And no matter what you think your talking unicorn is telling you, you really need to stop removing your pants and running down the middle of the street screaming “Lock Her Up.” Now back in your cage like a good girl.

    3. @chuck wick *_On behalf of Barack Obama, George Soros, and all the deep state liberals who stole this election for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Beelzebub, I am authorized to inform all you butthurt MAGA crybabies that next we are coming to steal your household pets, appliances, possum rifles and pickup trucks. After that we will be stealing your cha-cha heels, wigs and zaftig foundation garments. Thank you for your cooperation._*

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚…that’s perfect!!!….it might finally finish tRump off…..πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  9. sounds like he wanted to give daddy putin a really, really big christmas present by crippling nato, among other alliances. imagine the power vacuum.

    1. He was recruited to Russia years ago. What did you expect. He wants to be like the rest of the despotic leaders. When are you poor folks going to deal with him, when your country has the Russian flag on the Whitehouse πŸ΄β€β˜ οΈ

    2. tRump has always been a TRAITOR to the USA. So are his supporters because THEY KNOW all about this and DO NOT CARE!

  10. I told y’all when he lost, “removing Donnie from office is like watching a 4 year old child being pulled out of Chuckie Cheese pizza by the parents!” 🀣

    1. Do you ever wonder why MSNBC/CNN cover the former President more than they cover the current administration? Or is that too much critical thought for a liberal?

    2. @dublinjazz1 James Comey testified before congress after being terminated by Donnie about his “bs loyalty oath” that he did not commit to. How soon we forget, and now the whole party except for a few committed to that loyalty oath from a loser !

    3. @Rod Do you ever think the coverage on Donnie and the Republican Party is to remind us how an immature old man/party acts when losing the presidency and not conceding to reality in the U.S.A ?

    4. LMBO πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ his own Niece said this. I listened to her before the election and she knows her uncle like the back of her hand

  11. When Trump said “Let’s not leave that expensive equipment behind” what he meant was that they, as in the Trump Cartel, could sell it on the black market and make a fortune

    1. Or that they could sell it directly to those countries that they were in. But really, Putin didn’t want him to leave that stuff behind because it would make it harder for him to do the things he wants to do in Europe and elsewhere.

    2. Like he sold the pipeline codes. Like he sold American lives to Putin to pay off his debts like $4000 x 500,000 maybe hes paid up

  12. “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” George Orwell

    1. @Rod I would say thank you for proving his point but it didn’t need proving. More superflous Confederate flag waving from planet trumpia. Don’t worry, chief, we see you. We can hardly believe that we’re actually seeing it, but we do see you.

    2. @Rod Yep.
      But these idiots hate Trump more than they love our country.
      Nothing we can do about that, but just wait to repair their damage.

    3. @Gary Grud Trump hates our country.He only believes the rich matter. He was an embarrassment. It’s embarrassing that he was somehow elected at all.

    4. Every time we speak a lie, we incur a debt to the truth. And sooner, or later, this debt should be paid.

  13. In summary. He knew he lost. Before he exits, he orders “his Generals” to surrender the world to Vladdy. “His Generals” ignore the insane, dangerous order. 😳 Thank you Generals!

    1. Yes as much to hurt Biden vs help Putin. Does he realize Germany is a Hospital and staging area and not an active war zone?

  14. Not surprising this is what happens when you are dealing with a man that is a complete manipulator corrupt individual

  15. George W. Bush: “We’ll fight them there so we don’t have to face them in USA.”
    Trump: “Let’s start a Civil War here in USA.”
