    Here is a question to both parties. Why are all our politicians millionaires? How is this representation? There clothes cost more than I make in a month. Why have we accepted this?

    • And some became millionaires after taking office 🇺🇸

    • @PAPA Giarnella … Sound like a PERFECT Description Of Mitch McConnell’s 40 Year Career in the Senate. VOTE And Demand Full Public Funding and Term Limits. Now McConnell is selling American Institutions to FOREIGN As Well as DOMESTIC Donors (Google: $7 5 Million Dollars; Russian born Len BLAVATNIK And Russian Oligarch Oleg DERIPASKA $200 Million in Kentucky, RUSAL; Chinese born James S Chao; along with Koch Brothers, Mercer Family Foundation).

      @Ann Owens Restoring properly drawn district maps ends the widespread gerrymandering which is an un-American impediment to our votes and the Will of the People. This also makes our votes count as cast, and once again, we can vote out of office reps who do not represent. Term limits, where tried, have been shown to cause apathy in office, as no one can stay very long. Eliminate the poison intrusion of Big $ upon our elections/govt.-it is the causative factor in all our major difficulties.

    Officials at the Dept of Homeland Security struggled to get the Trump administration to pay attention to the threat of violent domestic extremists.
    His tweets are the reason the Governor of Michigan was targeted.

    • @lowmardiep d I expect him to OD or have a trip & fall.
      Melania deserves to be a widow.

    • She was targeted because she’s acting like a Dictator! No because of Trump

    • Michael should should be praised for helping the. Authorities Trump just used him like he used everyones he can.

    • Targeted? You mean because people said mean things to her? Remember all of the GOP members getting chased out of public places? Remember Maxine Waters telling people to do that? Do you know who the Brown Shirts were and what they did? Striking resemblance.

      As opposed to The intelligence agencies alont with Biden-Obama, DNC, Hillary, colluting to overthrow a duly elected president, not accepting peacefully the results of the elections, unlawfully spying on a presidential candidate, illegally obtaining FISA warrants to spy on Americans and A presidential candidate. shall I go on.. Best…watch “the plot against the President” documentary film released just now.

  3. Adolf, Mussolini, Stalin, Lenin, Kim Jung Un, Idi Amin, MBS, and Putin all did the same thing. So of course Trump wants to follow in the footsteps of his idols.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 no wonder why you believe in Trump. What is propaganda?

      You can’t see the scam if the one who is telling you is selling you.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 why would you believe opinions over words spoken by the one who is telling different.

      Go back in time to see Trump scam.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 have you ever been wrong?

  4. I like this Cohen guy & tells like it is….

    • I’m skeptical of the conversion of someone with such a long career in evilness. Remember, he wasn’t just a paper pusher for Trump, he was one of Trump’s goons. I admit, he’s charming and I want to like him, but I know better than to trust him.

  5. …one of the FATTEST presidents…. the doctor misspoke..

    • Trump’s a whopper. There is a shot of him and Biden from behind. He is not fit.

    • A Big Fat Pig.

    • William Howard Taft?

    • @Joe Wynne More. Couple things. He was 6’3″ at one time. His youngest son is evidence of that. But no way is he 6’3″ now. And no way is he that 245 or so weight being passed around. Any chubbster will tell you Don is up around 298. And those catalytic steroids are going to make him very hungry. That nondisclosure agreement at the hospital didn’t include a nurse hanging up his pants and peking at his belt size. Which is probably around 56.

    • @Malca’s Grace you can’t even spell the word 😁😂😄😭😬😲😵

  6. If Moscow Mitch will not do anything about this, he must go. Fox news should go too.

  7. Looking more like trump is the one going to jail.

  8. NEVER EVER FORGET – The Trump Propaganda Playbook is all too simple – “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” – Joseph Goebbels

      Repeat a lie all you want– it is still a lie; people in large part will, unfortunately simply become inured to, innoculated by, or complacent to it if it is heard constantly without being challenged or checked or corrected. However, it still remains– a lie.

    • If you want real brainwashing evidence, youtube, “media using key words” or “liberal media dog whistles.” See if you have been influenced if your thoughts are your own?

    • Charles Darwin | October 8, 2020 at 11:12 PM | Reply

      Trumps supporters believe this as well. The most long standing repeated lie is that Gods are real. Do you believe?

  9. The Republican Party is responsible for Trump’s atrocities.

    • Uh, we have one party. It’s called the corrupt donor party.
      Ever think why Nancy Pelosi gives Trump everything he wants? Then pretends on camera to oppose him? Lollollollollol.
      One party rule baby.

    • CAPTAIN CHARLIE same as dems. Point?

    • Democrat party voters are airheads fruitcakes and bums being led by crooks

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 Trump’s handling of COVID has now resulted in over 60 9/11s.

    • Scott Comstock all Obama did was reveal how many vicious white supremacists flipped out because a black man was overwhelmingly embraced by the majority of people in the United States. It’s a revelation.

  10. “The fitte$t pre$ident in Amerikan hi$tory” i$n’t FIT TO BE PRE$IDENT.

  11. Trump is a façade. Look up “Trumpery” in the dictionary. Showy but worthless. That’s him alright.

  12. Trump’s entire presidency has felt like being tied to a chair, watching a toddler play with a loaded pistol.

    • Excellent description and very very true!

    • Satya Richburg Ju | October 8, 2020 at 10:40 PM | Reply

      And the pistol has a hairline trigger.

    • Trump is going to pull the trigger. This will happen. But first he is going to run the same course that Republicans want as well. He will threaten war with either Iran or N Korea by sending Troops. Then he will challenge the election results. Then he will abandon Republicans and begin arresting all his political foes, intellectuals, journalists and opposition in his own party. Trump will attempt to ban use of firearms in districts he deems “unfriendly”.

      And right before it is time to swear in Joe Biden as President, Trump will launch.

  13. Reading his book, I’m shocked that I’m no longer shocked by Trump’s shocking behavior.

    • I think the fact that he has gotten away with so much openly sleazy behavior for so long -for example not paying contractors and vendors, shows that he has people in positions of authority helping him – people who can intimidate others into backing down for fear of retaliation; people who can set up those who stand up to the sleazebag trump yet not have the power to stop his private mafia because it is so extensive and connected to authority.

      The business world thinks he is a joke according to Bloomberg, who I believe. trump has never been a successful businessman. Any other business person doing just some of the things he has done over the years would have been jailed long ago. I’m not just talking about his russian mafia links. I’m talking about his larger “private” mafia in a position of authority. There is a reason why cops are trump’s biggest supporters, and it is a lot more than the public support he gives them.

    This is like 1930’s Germany. I’m not an American but I’ve studied 20th century history. This man is the most dangerous world leader since Hitler. Get rid of him while you can.

  15. Trump has an authoritarian mindset. He is America’s Mussolini & his is using his base & they are too dumb to know this.

    • B Sha, Trump will throw anyone and everyone in jail and cause a mega spreading condition of COVID-19 to the worst degrees, if not straight-up telling the Department of Homeland Security to commit a series of massacres and genocide IF HE LOSES THE ELECTION

    • A old formula different faces and times.

    • Putin is his mentor but he forget that Americans are bigger than him.

    • Electric Gigolo | October 8, 2020 at 11:06 PM | Reply

      Mussolini was shot and beaten to death with hammers. They broke every bone in his body. And his corpse was hung and displayed from the central train station. That’s how you deal with dictator’s.

    • Delusional tds on full display here.
      Heels Up Harris spouted non stop debunked lies. I understand the msnbc crowd here has a willingness to believe and intellectual laziness to look anywhere else to fact check or get another opinion, but the losers in cemetery comment, debunked, Russian bounties, debunked, and the good people hoax is clever editing to falsely frame the comments. You may just be too lazy to find the entire comment and only want to listen to a portion out of context, or a victim of media brain washing. In either case, you’re all pretty pathetic.

  16. Please vote him OUT! Astonishing corruption 🤦‍♀️

    • ShutUpAndDance! | October 8, 2020 at 11:14 PM | Reply

      Trump is voted out? Now what? In 4-8 years we’ll get another Trump after Biden just like we ended up with this one after 8 years of Obama.

  17. Trump doesn’t have negotiating strategy. He runs in, runs his mouth, tries to bully then slinks away and claims victory.

  18. People we need to get this crazy, guy out of the white house, this is nuts 🥜 something has to be, done!!!! Tired of this lunatic.

  19. Dennis Johnson | October 8, 2020 at 10:29 PM | Reply

    Trump and Barr is like having Gotti and Cutler in Washington and White House .

  20. Trump thinks and sounds like the dictator of a communist country.

    • Irunwitha hatchet | October 8, 2020 at 11:01 PM | Reply

      @CM Singletary bidem doesnt owe 400 million to china, last i checked, i wasnt own by china when bidep was vp for 8 yeara and powerful congressman for triple that time, i do hope bidem send the cia after u and make u disappear, less idiots like is wat the world needs


    • No communist would be as dumb as trump. Trump is a fascist dictator in the tradition of Mussolini and Hitler. Those of us more libertarian minded see both Trump and Biden as horrible directions for the country. Americans deserve freedom, trump wants a police state where everyone is arrested if they don’t obey trump.


    • How so?
      Facts please.
