  1. There is no low to which Trump won’t sink.

  2. Trump and the Republicans screw over the middle and lower class Americans, just to help the rich get richer. No one should be surprised by this.

    • @burningfeet 57 for jail.

    • @yaimavol you are so far into debt that China now owns you.

    • Real Americans support our Constitution as was written over 200 yrs ago: Wake up Americans to the Puppet politicians and the Propaganda news attempting to take away your defense through the lies protected by the 1st of 27 amendments! Ask them one question and if the say yes then flee from the “New World Order” // Ask this: “Are you a member of the CFR”: THAT GOES FOR THE GOP AS WELL!!

    • @Malcolm Sprott China has their own debt issues. Their banking system is mostly a fraud. EU debt is just as bad. At some point it all comes crashing down. That’s why I tell people prepare now. You can’t trust anything you hear out of any government.

    • @Chuck Kady way to openly take that pro-chattel slavery position. You should start a club at work to promote your pro-slavery ideas. I’m sure HR won’t object.

  3. This is just another example of how this administration has no interest in helping the commoners…

  5. This sounds just like how drug dealers get people addicted to drugs….a little taste and you keep coming back for more. A cycle that is very difficult to stop.

  6. Because Trump only cares about money. Even if it bankrupts and ruins people’s lives.

    • well yes, but push come to shove he may love power almost as much as money. Orange dictator is a bit like a leech sucking the treasury dry at the expense of everyone not in the upper one or two percent as well as every bit of decency this country once represented.

    • @Maggie Seider I don’t think it’s really about money or power with Trump. He wants prestige, but most of all I think he wants validation and adoration. The other things are mostly means to that end.

  7. SURPRISE! Trump is a predator who supports other predators!

    • @omi god … I disagree for the reasons already stated.

    • @c. j. macq I dislike being victimized by someone else’s bad choices. I empathize with the poor – I have been there. I give money in aid to people on a personal level whenever and to whom I feel is appropriate, and I vote Democrat. That’s all I expect any average citizen to do about this.
      People make dumb decisions and then suffer as a result. That is the way of the world. Don’t make dumb decisions, and you’ll probably come out alright.

    • Dylan Baxter….Correctly and Precisely Stated. “Trump is a Predator, who supports other predators.” With the help of individuals such omi god.

    • omi god so you must clearly oppose all that trump has done. Trump’s massive tax cut for the ultra rich is being paid for by the middle class. The rich are not putting back into the economy and government spending has gone way up under trump.

    • @Triplicarius I do oppose everything that Trump has done, you’re correct. I don’t know how you could come to any other conclusion.

  8. I am very thankful there are journalists like these, who investigate this stuff and bring it to light…. Thank you MSNBC…….

      but unfortunately no brain dead americans will watch or believed this because their chosen one said so.

    • @Hunter schmidt ….DECADES Of Political Manipulation by A Morally Corrupt “Aluminum” Mitch McConnell And His Puppet Masters, Placed This Obscenity In The Oval Office. 3 Million Americans Voted NO To A President and YET Trump, Demonically Sits In The Oval Office.

      The Brain Dead Trump Zombies, Did Not Create Themselves Our Education System Has Been Dumbing Down Our Citizens In Preparation Of A Trump ‘like’ Figure (Remember Ronald Reagan).

      No. What We SHOULD Concern Ourselves With ARE The Men and Women Who Have Worked Tirelessly For Decades To Create This Catastrophe (ie Koch Brothers, the Mercer Family Foundation… and Many Others). These Entitled Entities EXPLOIT Us All, Brain Dead or Normal Functioning Brain Activity.

    • @Chuck Kady ….September 07. 1819?

    • @Ann Owens It was a mis-key Ann :o( Real Americans support our Constitution as was written over 200 yrs ago: Wake up Americans to the Puppet politicians and the Propaganda news attempting to take away your defense through the lies protected by the 1st of 27 amendments!

  9. Trump is a guy only rich bc his dad gave him money…hes lost and squandered more money than anyone in history and Trumpers still believe this loser is a good business man🤣😅😂🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    • He will destroy the U.S.economy.

      But the people who voted for him make more money than most people in the United States. A third of his supporters take home more than a hundred grand a year. And They will cry the loudest when the recession hits.

  10. Trump and his cronies are CROOK and CON men, they should have been in prison long ago.

  11. America’s main streets are seeing a boom in pawn shops, payday and car title loan businesses. Further down the street you’ll find the financial counselors, psychiatrists, pharmacies and substance abuse clinics.
    All these between the liquor stores and vaping parlors. The video gambling is right there too- next to the new marijuana dispensary. And, the bail bondsman right where you need him. And, a new dollar store going in! The American dream exemplified!

  12. This is why Trump and his cronies are coming after the reporters.

  13. It’s ironic that many of the people they are screwing are Trump supporters

    • Yep,and they’re still singing his praise.. it’s madness.

    • Clarity of Mind | September 6, 2019 at 1:25 AM | Reply

      I think it is a wonderful thing that Trump supporters are suffering from this with Trump stopping rules that would protect them. He is screwing his own voters… It’s the least he can do for the rest of us. Thoughts and prayers!

  14. Just remember, it’s the Republicans who enable this criminal president. Vote them out — every single one!

    • @yaimavol Well if you’re not gonna believe that, how many of the 12,500 + PROVEN LIES that Trump has told do you believe? And do you even remember which ones they are?

    • @Ann Owens Incorrect, how? The Democrat party is a cesspool of corruption. Look at the cities they control. Detroit made an art form out of stealing taxpayer money and bankrupting the city. Puerto Rico another great example. They lie about climate change, Medicare, Russian collusion, white nationalism… Your argument is of a person with their head deeply buried somewhere, but there’s no light penetrating.

    • @yaimavol you are one very stupid person!!!

    • @v blackwell My problem is with Democrat lies. Why do they get to lie and get nobody says anything, but every Trump lie is recorded. Not playing this partisan hack game.

    • His supporters will suffer the most from their mistake to trust the lying orange puppet. And they will continue to blame Obama, Hillary, the Democrats, the immigrants, the liberals, etc..

    And the people getting screwed are the ones that voted for him.

  16. Down south, every drug addict i know has relied upon them weekly, for years….

  17. The mob used to run the streets with loan sharks, today they have storefronts.

    • @Cameron J Mafia never messed with kids, with those on the outside or women. The highest interest on loans was charged by Al Capone, at a rate of 22% – do you know how much credit card companies charge today? And they went to Congress asking for a 39% rate. They controlled the cement and construction in most major cities: 1) none of those buildings has fallen down so far (or natural causes), 2) they only took a 2% surcharge on transport. Compare that to what companies charge now. In addition, they took care of those in needs in their neighborhood. The MAfia was borne out of the need for protection from discrimination. Read some history, then we can talk boy.

    • @Rica Garcia it used to, before the corrupt Republicans killed it.

    • @Rica Garcia ..Since the establishing of the US, state usury laws protected consumers from abusive lending until the last quarter of the twentieth century. Then “preemption” wiped out usury laws for most banks.Those laws have been “preempted” – wiped out – by recent federal bank regulations and court interpretations of federal laws.

      Yeah but the mob doesn’t even charge that much interest

  18. But yet people are fighting to keep him in power and most have nothing to gain but a red hat and poverty.

  19. I’ll never be convinced Trump is not a Russian asset.

    You sleep in a car to save money. Never take out loans!
