  1. Trump is merely proving, yet again, that his only priority is himself, not the nation.

    • @TigerMom Smith im not going to argue with you for the fact you believe so strongly of him that you won’t listen to other people’s opinions.

    • @Cedric Daniels Again, if those ties were real… it would be beyond huge news. Fred Trump lived in Jamaica Queens during the same time some things went down. As a young man, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Theres no actual affliction, but you don’t do research… you just believe in racism so much that you’d jump to conclusions. TRUMP did big things for the black community and it really hurts you to know that someone you view as a racist would be so considerate and caring towards black people… do your freakin research!

      @COOL GUY you can continue to live in your bubble I understand you love your bubble you love the fact that hey Donald Trump don’t do nothing wrong he’s the most perfect man in the world I understand y’all think that but you Trump supporters need to realize he’s a fraud he’s racist is the biggest liar in history worst president in history and caused nothing but damage and killed people in America so until you’re able to realize what Trump has done I have nothing more to say on this matter nothing else to try to prove to you because obviously facts doesn’t live and Trump World

      @Pointless Matter You cannot convince Trump supporters otherwise I showed him pictures that Trump is racist and with facts and evidence he still don’t believe. So we can’t change stupid.

      @TigerMom Smith What actions acting like a baby, not stop covid, letting my brother and sister in the military with me get killed by Russia, or touching women when they dont want it.

  2. Trump is mad, that doesn’t disturb me, what freaks me out is the number of Trump supporter that believe whatever he says.

    • @Kwarkool
      Well that is ok too, as long as he going to jail!

      @Barnabas Collins soar losers are you even seeing what’s going on Biden is not the president elect lol just because the media says so Trump will win Arizona watch it happen and pennsylvania he will win you will see !!!

    • Matthew Patterson | November 11, 2020 at 5:37 PM | Reply

      @Barnabas Collins and 4 years of you baby’s crying over everything and you still probably think that Trump will go prison after which is funny cause everything that had been said has become common knowledge that it’s not true even if you don’t want to believe

    • Barnabas Collins | November 11, 2020 at 6:02 PM | Reply

      @Matthew Patterson hopefully his Reign of Terror is over. As far as the Trumps going to jail. Let’s hope so. He’s going to be sued by everybody and their grandmother. No word from Vladimir? I don’t feel sorry for the Lying King. The racist/Lying King deserves whatever his fate. And you wonder why people weren dancing in the streets

    • @D M he won’t, he will pardon himself, however, he is so dirty, they will find something.

  3. Why can’t anyone just stand up to him?

    • @Awiza Natan Hahaha, you don’t seem to understand one very basic thing, Trump followers will NEVER accept that he lost, EVER. Conspiracies can grow indefinitely because they don’t answer to reality or proven facts, I can imagine them saying: “The judges were bought out by Soros”, “Bill gates introduced a virus in the voting machines”. They will NEVER stop.
      30-40 years ago a politician caught in a lie paid a price, liying was bad, now it seems only the left politicians pay a price, the right wing has become more accepting of lies and corruption, they follow a “the end justifies any means” policy, but they point out and overblow any misdeed by the left, that then gets all flustered.
      It’s not a sprint it’s a marathon and they are winning.

    • Thaddeus Stevens | November 11, 2020 at 4:52 PM | Reply

      In January, Trump will pack his bags and get out of the White House. If he refuses, uniformed police officers will do it for him!

    • @James Miller Do you see how no one on the dems’ side is talking or even mentioning “cheating”?…..We’re not that desperate because we know we kicked that piece of crap in office–..OUT!….But who’s crying and denying….YOU should be insulted as the “stop the count” idiocy could have included your vote—..for him. Maybe “cheated” you out of a vote,huh?……Think.

    • @James Miller James, I don’t mean to be rude, but I’m not engaging with you. Goodbye.

    • Because a lot of them are egotistical and think they have a legacy to protect. Probably trying to secure a pension on top of it. It’s the same reason cops don’t rat out bad cops when they break the law. I assume keeping their pensions is a big part of it.

    Who’s trying to “steal” the election now?!?!

    • learn about how the process works… there is dispute time build in. there is no new president until all of that if over, which can go on into dec. Biden, if proven the winner, Biden is not the president until sworn in. live with the process.

    • Ernest Martinez | November 11, 2020 at 4:12 PM | Reply

      @Jonathan * I’m perfectly aware of the process and how it works. I didn’t express any sentiment in regards to the process. But thank you for your concern.

      My comment was more related to the fact that we have a petulant child in the White House acting a complete fool.

      At the end of the day, though, it’s all an act. It’s all to save face and avoid the “looser label.” He’s just taking control of his narrative. As per usual – only thinking of himself.

    • @Ernest Martinez there are multiple complaints by people who were apart of the voting count. people should be focused on our process of law above there petty dislike for trump. I have my complaints of the man, myself, but quiet honestly, if people would have done more research into the man, they would not hate him as much as they do. you mostly hate him because of repetition of leftist media. brainwashing. sorry, but if people took more time watch full videos and reading full statements of the man, they would have notice just how far out the media either didn’t give him credit, lied or took him far out of context. but im waisting my time. people who hate him will not take it back even when proven wrong. not picking on you in particular. you have yourself a nice week

    • Ernest Martinez | November 11, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

      @Jonathan * I’ve done my research. I know all I need to know. Thanks.

    • @Ernest Martinez well, keep reading.

  5. At NOON 20 Jan 2021:
    *The President ELECT POTUS Power will INCREASE to ABSOLUTE and LAME DUCK President will DIMINISH to ZERO* .
    Others are IRRELEVANT pls ignore them.

  6. “What’s the harm?” Well, off the top of my head, the cold reality is that the Republican Party is coddling an infant. Who, tragically, is the current President. That should do wonders for America’s place on the world stage.

  7. who’s hiding in basement now? me thinks someone’s too embarassed to show his face.

  8. The president has abandoned his day job?
    Point of correction, he never had a job besides watching Fox News,tweeting or golfing all day.

    • @Mary Collins Good morning Mary ! Hope for better days ahead. Joe Biden will choose his Secretary of State this week and this will put more subtle pressure on Trump. Bit by bit.
      He definitely is the worst President of all time. 2nd worst is fantastic co pared to him.

      Kiwis for Joe Biden

  9. As a viewer who saw Pompeo’s press conference, I didn’t perceived it as a “dry joke”, I saw it as serious and he meant it.🤔

    • He has to tow the line. Trump will can him

    • Chubby, maybe Classified as Obese Pompeo is Done after Jan 20. He is also a tritor to the US democracy. Send Trump. him and all those who are publicly backing a lame duck pres to court for treason.

    • Robert Schumann | November 11, 2020 at 2:50 PM | Reply

      It was a joke. You could tell by his tone of voice. I have always seen CNN as pretty much the bipartisan news station with MSNBC being pretty left and Fox going about as far right as you can. I finally see what inflames Trump supporters so much about CNN. They were only talking about the “second Trump administration” comment and left out where he said no matter what the transition will always be smooth at the State Dept. Believe me I am no Pompeo fan. I thought he was a horrible choice to head the CIA and an even worse choice for State but he did everything but laugh while giving that Press Conference. CNN was trying to inflate their ratings yesterday by scaring the left and I have far less respect for them for doing it. People on both sides of the political isle need to realize the country doesn’t stop and start with their party of choice. You couldn’t get a worse President than Trump and look after 4 years nothing major has happened except a Pandemic which would have happened regardless of who was in the WH. I am still in shock at the Republican voters in 2016. They chose somebody based off of a tv show. They didn’t look into his business record, refused to believe the horrible things that were reported about his personal life. They put a man in the White House because he gave entertaining speeches and made them feel like they were the popular kids in school. He put a coals look lobbyist in charge of the EPA. He put someone who hates public schools in charge of Education. He put a confirmed torturer in charge of the CIA. He put a corporate lobbyist in charge of the labor dept. He put a hedge fund manager in charge of the Treasury. He made a war hawk the NSA. An oil lobbyist runs the Interior Dept. A shipping heiress runs transportation. Like I said the absolute worst choice you could ever make as President. And look the government ran just fine enduring every hindrance Trump’s cronies could throw up. I am surprised anyone even voted for him. Even his supporters should know how much he loves those rallies. He will be doing them far more often out of office than he could as President and he can say spout conspiracy theories and lies about the current President to his hearts content. So, Trump fans I say give up this losing battle over fraud. You know it’s BS as does the rest of America.

    • @Robert Schumann Read every word. I still think Pompeo was serious as Mitch on the Senate floor backing Trump and rally all his goons in line. If you compare Pompeo statement to Trump statement it’s exactly the same! Trump: “Just toss out mail-in ballots then we have a continuation of power and smooth transition”.🤔 Trump knows if you don’t count the mail-in (mostly Democrat) then of course he wins. 😒 Trump tries so hard to stop the count or don’t count the fraud (mail-in). It’s so crazy to me what Trump is doing. There is no Democracy and he tramples on everyone like trash – literally!👀

    • wow

  10. Why is everyone even still talking about this? You’re just giving his narrative more oxygen. The law suites aren’t about overturning the election results. They are about reinforcing the story of election theft for his base (and so he doesn’t have to admit to being a “loser” as a bonus), so that once he leaves the White House, he can become the “leader of the resistance”. He plans to launch a subscription based TV channel and he wants his 70 million followers to sign up and fill his pockets and pay his debts.
    This is not about the White House, the presidency, the election or any of that…its about his ego and his next big income stream!

    • Michel Petersen | November 11, 2020 at 12:49 PM | Reply

      So we can spend 4 years and millions of dollars on absolutely no evidence of Russian collusion. And you can’t even take 5 minutes to look at actual evidence. Wow

    • He is going to Rob them blind!

    • @Michel Petersen 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    • I saw that too but no corroborative evidence…It makes sense, the Trumpinator has always treated the presidency like he was in a TV show…

    • Ginger Nightmare | November 11, 2020 at 1:23 PM | Reply

      There is a lil problem with that. SDNY will jail him! He is gonna do 2 rallies in Georgia, his final tour, to raise money for his debts and incite as much violence as possible to hurt the election for the Senate race. That is the reason Republicunts stopped saying anything against him.. til after the Georgia vote.

    Trump is afraid, he knows exactly how much crime he has done.

    • @T. R. Campbell there are crimes, plenty of them. Withholding funds, emoluments up the wazoo, etc.,etc,etc. I think the anger comes partially how he makes most of us feel. After hearing him talk, I feel like I need to take a shower. Name-calling, lying incessantly, sometimes when it makes no sense. No loyalty to the rule of truth. No common sense, poor judgement. Shunning our allies, buddying to despots and criminals. Hating people for the color of their skin or their religion. Threatening anyone who disagrees with him with jail or expulsion. His behavior right now is disgusting and beyond not helpful. The chosen one? A pi** poor example for children and adults. His only redeeming is, when we look at or listen to him, we know we don’t want to be like that!

    • T. R. Campbell | November 11, 2020 at 6:38 PM | Reply

      @Dotty Powers You can’t name any, you can’t be specific. The emollient clause does not pertain to the president or vice president, which was specifically the intent of the founders. Name-calling and lying is not a crime, if it were every politician in DC would be behind bars. You mentioned lying but if that were the case again most politicians would be behind bars. We recall the whoppers a former President Obama, (you can keep your doctor, you can keep your insurance, the Americans who died in Benghazi was a result of the movie).
      Our iconic JFK gave us the roadmap to economic prosperity. Obama did not open the roadmap but Trump did and we had a supercharged economy up until COVID-19 hit the world. I don’t think that was poor judgment. The Trumpstir has implemented many Democrat party platform issues. Making our allies pay their fair share is good for America.
      We recall the German Chancellor attempting to convince Trump to stay in the failed and disastrous Paris accord, she told him it was necessary for globalism.
      Poor judgment is not a crime, if it were many politicians would be in jail. It’s going to be interesting to see if Democrats hold Joe and Kamala to the same high standards that we placed on the Trumpster.

    • @T. R. Campbell I didn’t say those were crimes, I said that’s how he makes us feel. Boy oh boy, have YOU swallowed the koolaid!

    • @T. R. Campbell how many times do two wrongs make a right?

    • T. R. Campbell | November 11, 2020 at 7:06 PM | Reply

      @Dotty Powers No, I am afraid I am a little bit too old to drink Kool-Aid. I might’ve tricked you into this because so many people talk about crimes. So many people want the trumpeter to go to jail for the crimes that he committed. Now people want AG Barr to go to jail for the crimes that he committed. But whenever I ask them (or you) for specific crimes, details, evidence I get back nothing but crickets. All I hear is rhetoric.
      Nobody is going to go to jail. Hillary did not go to jail even though her careless handling of one classified document is a federal offense. How many did she mishandle? How much classified information escaped through her unsecured computer servers?
      Eric holder didn’t go to jail. The gun running scandal to Mexico that killed at least one border patrol agent and numerous Mexicans was a huge scandal that had to go to the highest levels. President Obama had to protect his “wing man” by classifying all of the fast and furious documents.
      The IRS agent who targeted conservative political groups and who had to take the “5” as if he was a mafia godfather one question by the Senate, she didn’t go to jail.
      So I don’t think we should rent about sending government officials to jail. The big question is are we going to hold Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the same standards that we held the trumpeter. If you do something stupid, which he will are we going to rent that he should go to jail? Very likely conservatives will do that but we won’t. We need to remember that this is all politics. I do appreciate your post and your sincerity.

  15. Who remembers Rudy Giuliani didn’t want to leave as NYC mayor post 9/11 and tried to cancel the election?

  16. Hannity and Tucker are trying to start a civil war with their lies.

    • Diane O'Donovan | November 11, 2020 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      Considering the harm their lies have done, among the great many people who listen to them, they should be treated like people who falsely call ‘fire’ in a theatre, and the panic leads to deaths in the crush. They lied and knew they lied – and people have died as more may do if this madness doesn’t stop.

    • Uh CNN and MSNBC played with your minds to much.

    • @summermojo still at fox? Or you move with the herd to newsmax 🐑

      @summermojo It’s strange, this assumption that everyone here must be American, but stranger that so many think the whole world thinks as much of their news channels as they do. The internet isn’t church and what you find online isn’t often the gospel truth. Better trust the Uk Guardian, or the NYT, or DW news or even the English BBC.

    Trump is going to bail and leave it all to Pence! This is why he told him to go on vacation now. Trump is a coward and is not programmed to handle this situation.

    • Yes he us a coward, You do know that he used a flimsy excuse to get out of serving in the military.
      If he couldn’t serve his country in the military, we don’t want the coward,

    • Been saying this for months. No one would even think of it. Wanna bet naysayers?

      This is exactly why he isn’t showing his face. And when he does, he’ll call a press conference & say;” I am resigning because I have better things to do” or something to that affect. That way he can say I quit instead of being fired. Doesn’t work that way trumpo, you were fired last week! Get over it as your cult followers told us to do over and over again, which had no merit!

      Exactly, who knows what he’s up to when he turns our heads in another direction, same old tactics, Look here, no Look There !! This is Crazy and so Unbelievably Insane that NO ONE is just Going in to GET HIM OUT!

    • You better hope not.. you think things are bad now! Let’s just hope he comes to terms w/ the fact he lost & concedes!

    • Ernest Martinez | November 11, 2020 at 4:43 PM | Reply

      I have those same fears. However, I choose to believe in our processes and institutions. I have to for my sanity.

      I choose to believe he’s simply avoiding the looser label. He’s in preproduction for his network. The fact is he never intended to win in 2016. The whole campaign was a big infomercial for his network. Now he’s trying to frame the story to sell his name. Rather than be a “looser”, which doesn’t really fire up his base, he’ll frame it as if it was stolen from “them” and That will infuriate his base and they will eat up his Subscription based network. The only thing he cares about is himself and his bank account.

      The saddest part of it all, really, is that we’ve only seen the beginning of groups like proud boys and the likes. He’s going to keep feeding them and influencing their inappropriate behavior.

    • @Teena Raven Snow I think everyone is afraid of setting a precedent and the downward slope it represents. I don’t know the answer. Maybe, a quick impeachment to get him out of the way for the final couple of months. But the Republican Senate won’t let this happen. They don’t want another Republican President going down.
