    Well, if Trump says it’s a “terrible thing”, it must be a wonderful thing.

  2. Yeah, it’s tragic to see people using their non-profit’s to profit get in trouble…

    O…m…g….how can anyone listen to this fool and not see the corruption in plain site

  4. I live in Texas, and own guns. The NRA/Russia Money Laundry can find somewhere else to poison.

      @Viktor Sv — so who should tell private non profits how to operate, they are not a business and have set themselves up to not pay taxes, furthermore who do you think the government is, here in the USA it’s we the people, so Yes we should have that authority

    • @Mdlclass Worker sadly today you have high school kids with very high powered weapons and no thoughts to look down range. The NRA instead of going in and offering safe gun training use this to sell more firearms.

    • @Viktor Sv That is the problem: the NRA is registered as a non-profit and must abide by certain regulations in order to maintain that starts legally.

      That’s where they run into trouble. From all the reports in the last few years of their executives using members’ fees as profits for themselves, it seems like they are breaking the law. They’re essentially committing tax fraud.

    • @The Blade So the thugs can get more daily kills?

    How can he even be on the wrong side of this issue? I’m sure Trump ‘wished them well’.

      @geek I agree brother

    • @MJB For Trump They laundered money from our enemy to the corrupt Republican Party & their leader’s stole money from donors. Why do you hate America?

    • The man who’s pretty sure he’d have run into a high school to stop a school shooting…. I’m surprised he’s not taking credit for reducing school shootings this year.

      @Trump is a POS Really?? Then who are you voting for? If Biden, then justify why Biden is a good choice over Trump.

    “devastated by the cost of that lawsuit”???? No, the NRA has been decimated by the corruption and greed of its officers. It’s been a long time coming.

  7. they been stealing for years right along with the Trumps.

  8. Without the NRA, how will Russian money get into Republicans’ election campaigns?

  9. Does Trump know any other adjectives other than ‘terrible’ and ‘tremendous’. What a mess.

  10. How about that ..a President impeached for Corruption endorses Corruption…what a surprise..

      @T. R. Campbell — no not acquditted, he was not removed, you can’t acquitte someone with out a trial, witnesses or hearing of the evidence, that was disgrace and a failure of the Senate to uphold their oaths of office , that’s why people like Susan Collins are so far behind in the polls, the republican party is all but over, turns out the vast majority of the public put patriotism and democracy above partisan nonsense, what’s it going to feel like if Biden and all future president’s engage in the corruption that Trump has now made the standards all will be judged by

      Mdlclass Worker You must have not paid attention. Witnesses were called. This was all political and there was nothing to it. We did the dog and pony impeachment and the Repubs acquitted him.

      MJB For Trump I’m with ya brutha

    • T. R. Campbell | August 7, 2020 at 5:46 PM | Reply

      Chris Getman I am a lifelong democrat but I am also not an NRA member. I see how this is going to do nothing but harm for the Democrat party.

  11. When I was a boy, my Grandpa told me, “Boy, don’t you trust some fool who wears Chewbaccas pubic hair on his head”. I’m sure glad I listened.

  12. They could also move to Moscow since that would bring them closer to their donors.

  13. Trump: “How dare these people try to shutdown the GOP money-laundering organization so foreign countries can funnel money to us”

    ‘It is what it is, a terrible thing’ – Trump

  15. Putin literally spent millions buying the NRA. So I guess Trump thinks his boss is due a refund.

  16. It’s a terrible thing, yes, for him and all the corrupt politicians who receive millions of dollars for their campains from the gun lobby industry. The NRA is the principal mediator of that money.

  17. Kimberly Galanti | August 6, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

    Sure…its a terrible thing for the crooks that were stealing peoples money.

  18. Who was it that said, “There were fine people on both sides”? Ah yes, Bunker Fuhrer Baby Donnie…

    So Trump supports corruption and greed. Imagine that.

    TRUMP INSISTS THAT THE ELECTION IS BEING RIGGED AND THAT’S NO LIE; HE’S THE ONE DOING IT! He does it in various ways: attempting to delay the election; repeatedly sowing doubt and undermining trust in the election process; falsely claiming that mail voting results in millions of fraudulent votes, except in “Red” States; undermining the USAPS and claiming that it’s unable to handle a large volume of mailed votes, etc. Trump’s efforts to sabotage the election are enabled and unconditionally supported by the Fake-GOP, the Party of Republican Turncoats. Fair and free elections are the foundation of any genuine democracy; if the American people lose trust in our election America shall be a democracy in name only! AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS UNDER ATTACK BY TRUMP, THE FAKE-GOP, AND PUTIN!
