  1. We *haven’t* forgotten… 🤨
    *Only* ‘Russian press’ *were allowed* to film #45 and Putin this past July…as Putin joked about “…getting rid…” of reporters.
    And #45 *laughed right along* with the former *KGB agent who rules over* Russia.
    *No* other American President *would’ve allowed* such insults to *our country* and *constitutionally-protected* ‘free press’.
    But #45 loves his -banker- -mentor- ‘like-minded leader’.
    *So* embarrassing for America… 😒

    OH God every time i hear this guy did something i can hear my brain cells dying.. He says listen to me don’t listen the media and then he admits something and he goes no don’t listen what i said see what i do and then he does something stupid in public AND AGAIN he says NO NO dont see what i do… IT IS ALL THEM;. OMG wtf pick a side man PICK A SIDE .

  3. so. much. corruption. #ImpeachTrump

  4. They all are defending Putin!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!

    • they’ve all been bought by the nra which putin feeds money into.

    • Their new guide to live by WWPD(what would Putin do?) has replaced the old one about WWJD, hard to pretend Jesus is a guideline for anything this adm does. In the big picture the Trump adm does exactly what Putin wants done. Note that Rudy just cancelled his speaking engagement at Putin’s anti-NATO yearly conference because of media scrutiny..but he spoke there LAST YEAR:(

    • Defending Russian President Putin by discrediting the US intelligence community. By soliciting foreign governments against US agencies. Wow.

      Putin must be so happy at all the chaos.

  5. The President has ceased to even pretend to govern, but is spending all his time defending himself from the Constitution.

    • @Mirror face Telling people what you think they know is a sign of desperation on your part. The Dems are desperate, as well. They know Biden is done.

    • @Mirror face Why won’t you complain on Obama wiretapping Trump?Because you’re a hypocrite.All DEMONRATS are hypocrites.

    • @Vnk 007 Because it never happened. More Trump lies. Read some credible news sources and avoid the “opinion” columns.

      I agree Bidens son earning 600k a year at an oil company without experience is fishy, but this might be a surprise to the average person but 600k salary isn’t particularly high at executive level, especially for overseas work. None of it has any relevance anyway, look at the shakedown and cover up if you want to find corruption, politicians get sweetheart deals and help their families, its gross but not illegal.

    • @UCEAuGx5NJ66McZTJBP1B0tw to be fair, he’s been working hard….for Russia….hehehe

  6. Elections: Putin’s “A-Bomb”. His Super-Weapon, enabling him to control “democracies”, because he controls the count.
    If Ukraine agreed to elections, they just ceded to Russia, because Putin will make sure that election goes the way he wants it to go.

    Trump fans: you did this. Ukraine is the front line. You broke it, in favour of Putin.

    • Nothing was done…this is all lies and fake news Scooter. Watch and learn.

    • ꧁Ian Moone꧂ | October 2, 2019 at 9:25 AM | Reply

      @UberToob where is your proof that this is all fake? There is no war in Ukraine? Trump campaign didn’t have numerous ties to Russia? Trump doesnt show uncharacteristic deference to Putin? Congressionally funded NATO upgrades weren’t just slashed by Trump?
      What’s fake?

    • Crazy Hondamom | October 2, 2019 at 9:33 AM | Reply

      UberToob the papers are forthcoming. Trump will be impeached. How dare he play with the lives of Ukraine’s citizens, cover up info, and extort foreign leaders!

    • @Ken Wilson Exactly. That is the awful truth.

  8. Okay… let’s get something straight .. The media keeps saying the “origins of the russia investigation” Everyone knows it’s ORANGES ! ; >

    Putin has deep pockets, follow the money!!!!!

  10. The whole thing makes sense when you accept that the Trump campaign and Russia colluded. There is no other explanation for all the events otherwise.

    • This is not lies, he did it only reason you support it is due to the fact you are a racist and feel he will be the way to get the America where white people ruled over all without restraint. It wont happen, it will end the US. Did you know Putin also has a plan to supply black and brown people with training and weapons to defend themselves against white america. Didnt know that did you? Planned to give black and brown people certain states of their choicing but including Florida.
      I keep repeating to MAGA people and white supremacist. And I’ll ask you. Is you hate so important that your willing to destroy the country to have it?

      The reason he sucks up to all the world’s dictators is to obfuscate the relationship with the big dic, putin

    • It is a possibility, but certainly not the only one. One must be open to all possibilities.

    • @HS Lowendorf You’re an imbecile.

    • Remember when there was a 2 year investigation on Trump and Russia and they couldn’t find any evidence? Are we pretending that never happened?

  11. What Have you done, AG Barr? Why? Shamefull!!

  12. Not only was the 2016 election stolen…history is being rewritten…straight out of ‘1984’.
    Trump = Treason

  13. KGB! Donald is the perfect person for their deceptive needs!!……A sitting US President engaging with foreign agents to undermine our election process, and intelligence agencies that do the work for he to better out smart the aggressor……but nope Trump is a Moscow Agent Governing America MAGA!!!!!!

  14. Idea for T-Shirt:
    I miss the old America when only criminals were criminals

    • That makes no sense

    • that was so weak. the better t-shirt would be “I like Presidents that arent criminals” as a twist on Trump’s comment about John McCain “I like people that werent captured”.

    • “I miss the good old days when only criminals
      were criminals.”👕🕵️‍♀️👕🕵️‍♀️👕🕵️‍♂️👕🕵️‍♀️👕🕵️‍♀️👕👕🕵️‍♂️👕👕🕵️‍♀️👕🕵️‍♂️👕🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️🕵️‍♀️

  15. It’s starting to seem more and more like Russia and Putin are holding the truth about the 2016 elections over Trump –:to force him do their bidding. Like lifting sanctions, holding military aid back for Ukraine, etc…. This is why you don’t enlist foreign aid to help you in your elections. You become beholden to them.

    And we are weasels now under Russia’s thumb. Thanks to Trump and Republicans. Sickening.

    • I think you got something there, like the whole enchilada.
      Yes, many of us are just sick both physically and mentally from all these treasonous behaviors.

  16. Why do I feel like I’m hearing a mandolin playing whilst looking at this ‘sequence of events’ logo?

  17. I SWEAR, it’s like Trump is LITERALLY a Russian agent. Not a, “spy,” per se, but an actual American citizen who is actively and persistently working towards improving his own personal and political circumstances with the singularly goal of using the levers of power of our own Federal Government to benefit the Russian oligarchy.

    If he isn’t defeated in this upcoming election cycle, he MUST be impeached, removed from office and potentially incarcerated because he’s not just using his position to increase his own personal wealth, he is actually literally using his position to improve the wealth and prosperity of the ruling body of America’s most significant foreign adversary at the expense of the Safety and Security of the United States, and her entire population.

    This goes WELL beyond, “treason.”

    • You’re right, and he always has been, from before day one. What else were they all so happy about that day in the oval office…we won!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Your right did our government even know they were there. Plotting on how to screw Americans out of more money. Is it that easy to become a president fill out a app that’s it don’t they check backgrounds of people like they do Joe public…

    • He’ll get six months or some kinda a plea deal. It’s a joke the punishment these people get That’s in higher places. But keep the prison full of long term people. Don’t get me wrong people deserve what they get but some don’t.. It’s a business.

      I concur; 100%, 💯 ; Absolutely ! He is Putin’s Manchurian candidate ever since the Russians laundered proceeds from their crimes to buy apartments in Trump buildings that Trump didn’t own at thrice the going rate in a building industry that was in a pro-longed economic slump.

    • @Thivian Padayachi Ouch. You and the other posters are nailing so many criminal behaviors I am getting dizzy. Unbelievable that folks still worship these charlatans.

  18. Traveling the world on this fool’s errand more than likely at the taxpayer’s expense!!!
