  1. Yessir…He Did Quo Prophylactic!!!

  2. even a fool will never admit he was pressured by him but that is what actually happened.

  3. In B4 Republicans try to blame _this_ President’s behavior, in office – on the _last_ vice-president’s, son’s business interests… in Ukraine.

    Mob Boss Trump finally being held to account for his strong arm tactics caught in plain sight… BUSTED

      He’s going to get away with it just watch, he’ll pay everybody under the table and everybody’s just going to forget about it. That’s how he takes care of his problems paying people off.

    • @Estella Trevino I think that this is a turning point. Of course Trump will try every tric in and out the book. But now it is al ready known that there are several people that could be a witness. Even if they like the money Trump promises, you do also know that there is a high chance of being caught on purgory.
      I getting the sense that Trump is loosing control. The blower and the potential witnessess seem not to belong to his inner circle. So he has less influence on them. They also can support each other. And I think it are career professionals who are less political motivated.
      I only hope that there will be no innocent victims. I really hope that the whistelblower and the potential witnessess will be protected.

  5. for the psychopath, asking for help is not enough, it is the manipulation and coercion he must use, as the answer would otherwise be no

    Donald Trump deals with World Leaders like he was a Mob Boss. *Badda Bing, Badda Bang, Badda Boom.*

    The Ukraine presidents face is deep with sadness. Probably cause he knows his country’s life is depending on this……… guy

      @P J : And have the Champaign on ice for the final tally on Election Night. But maybe he’ll be impeached by then and not be able to run. Won’t THAT be a Coup?👍

      @William Stall Well, how about rolling over on The Oath of Office. That is the worst thing. That is why some of your MAGA friends and Repub Congress people are jumping ship.

    • Jeannie Winters | September 27, 2019 at 4:50 AM | Reply

      @William Stall Guess you’re having a hard time following along with the facts. Your big a$$ orange clown is so dumb he admitted it. He confessed….handle it….he’s going down!

    • If they had ANYTHING, then why are the House Democrats in hiding?  Why didn’t ol’ Nancy call for a vote on formal impeachment hearings?  Why?  Because she can’t get the votes from her own party!!!  House Dems from swing districts knows this is a kiss of death for their re-election so they’ve gone into hiding from their own Speaker!  LOL  Over 2/3s of American do NOT support impeachment.  The fringe that actually watch MSNBC (and that’s less than those who watch Nickelodeon) are about the only ones who do…  Hide away Dems, America wishes WE could hide from Pelosi, too.

  8. Putin wants control over Ukraine. Trump is a catastrophe for Ukrainians.

    • @Brian Cramer So say Putin and Trump. Stop being dumb and gullible – for your own sake.

    • you don’t get the game. The West wants to destroy Ukraine to the maximum and then * transfer * to Russia that Russia restored it and pulled together the resources from the world to Ukraine. It won’t happen. Putin understands this game. It is a pity only simple Ukrainians, though if to think, they are responsible for their destiny. The betrayal of their great ancestors, the saviors of mankind, cannot lead to good life and glory…This land is waiting for only blood and poverty, because Russia will not restore it. Russians are already used to money, don’t want useless spend it, although the Ukrainians are their brothers in blood

      @Brian Cramer you must be under illusion to say nonsense (no offence) like that.

    • christoph paessler | September 26, 2019 at 5:19 PM | Reply

      @Brian Cramer what a disgusting comment (that most ukranians want 2 be part of russia). Putins Troll speaking? Knowing nothing about history, just trolling, this is not OK!

      @Alabama Mothman it was the congress!

    Just throw in the towel will YA! IT’S over for you BUDDY! 2020💙here💙we💙COME!

  10. Did you see his face! I don’t know how he stayed quiet. That poor, poor man just new leading in Ukraine filling overwhelmed.
    If trump were any kind of a decent leader the reciprocity would be the lives of the people that have not perished in this WAR with Russia. (I sure wouldn’t want to live that close to Russia)

  11. I’m ashamed of the United States, this President is a disaster.

    • Soraeon : ✌️👍

    • @cessna caravan I am shocked and appalled that some folks, especially right-winger actually believe that Fox News. Is a reputable news organization.

    • @C A Just like me, no person has to be living in the states to be American. I am from NYC but I now live in the UK, I cannot afford to live back in NYC because I could not afford my health care as it would be over $500,000 a year. Having worked a lot in the UK I get all of my care free of charge and all I had to do was to pay my taxes here. Every right minded person should be able to see what a criminal Trump is.

    • say it LOUDLY with your vote to get this guy OUT so that the New York lawyers can carve him up and send him away.

  12. Watch how the racist in America, especially in the Southern States, continue to support Trump no matter what. They couldn’t care less about the country, but getting that wall built… That’s the thing.

  13. I’ve never been more mortified in my lifetime to be an American.
    Trump is the most disgusting human being. He’s borderline illiterate, has no empathy, no integrity, no knowledge of history, current events, the economy, nothing. All he knows is corruption. I’m so sorry to the people of Ukraine. Yet one more country I feel the need to apologize to for my president.
    Just appalling on every level of human decency. We are getting him out, the process is slow, but with all of his crimes, it shouldn’t be long now.

    Trump is such a punk. He has no respect for foreign country leaders, he doesn’t even know how, he is so full of himself and how to use them. Trump’s ugliness knows no bounds.

  15. Uniqueness Entertainment | September 26, 2019 at 4:15 AM | Reply

    I really hope that you and Putin can solve your problem. That was a soft undertone of a threat again. Trump thinks he’s slick but he’s not.

  16. That Ukranian president looks as scared and subdued as Trump in the presence of Putin. He is like a mouse.

  17. Jeannie Winters | September 26, 2019 at 4:47 AM | Reply

    Remember when trump’s attorney Cohen stated that trump never would actually come right out and directly stated what he wants you to do? But you knew what he really wanted to happen.
    This sounds exactly the same thing trump did with Zewlenski. I feel sorry for the guy. Did you see the look of horror on his face when trump said Putin would be down to work it out?

    • Jeannie Winters yes he probably said it to intimidate Zewlenski, in case he was thinking of saying something in that media setting.

    • Jeannie Winters | September 27, 2019 at 4:31 AM | Reply

      @Tracey Edwards oh, I dont doubt that one bit. And have you noticed how he sits? Elbows on the knees leaning forward. According to experts on body language, that is a power and intimidating position. Just like his grab hand and arm pulling it towards him with the handshake and he refuses to release the shake until he’s good and ready.

  18. Make this guy give proper aid and step down for trying to cheat the next election .

  19. The Ukraine president appears intimidated sitting next to the mob boss.

    The look on Ukraine’s presidents face when dumbshit Donnie tells him to work it out with Putin says it all.
