  1. Am I a hero if I “fix” a problem I had created?
    …enter Donnie.

    • @Shannon Nonnahs honnestly you’re a sheep

      @Brun Lenoix Thank you because your right I LOVE Jesus and he is my Sheppard. God bless you.✌

    • @Gags Double J according to Donnie Patron Saint of Grift,, Grievance and Gross Incompetence, we are all saved…by his bigly grace and tremendous powerfulness.
      Praise be!!
      Now send him your stimulus check….

      The Bible is a historical fact.
      Life is very short and there is no time for fussing and fighting with my friend.
      Did you know about Earth when you were in your mum’s womb?
      There’s a cup because someone made it.
      In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
      For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
      You are a person born to be loved.
      Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement.
      Trust Lord Jesus, and your house will be saved.

    • @Gags Double J is YouTube the conduit of the word of a god? Did the Bible not get written about 200 years after the fact by Greeks who did not know Jesus and get revised over the centuries?
      What about Buddhism and reincarnation?
      How about Shinto?
      And did Islam come about to correct the errors of Judaism and Christianity?
      Oh what a tangled web is woven to make money and grift the gullible through religion.
      All hail the Golden Calf that is Donnie….

  2. I knew he’d cave. And he calls himself the best negotiator! What a lie. Just like everything he touches.

      The question is: are you an establishment schill? Why don’t you take the energy you’re spending on me, and do your own research — away from the elite establishment’s news monopoly? Don’t want your take on reality turned upside down? Lol. “The Great Awakening” and “covid 19 and the great reset.”

      @natasha maier “the great reset” so you are at least quackanon-adjacent. i don’t need my ego boosted by pretending I know more than the common “rabble” or scientists or whatever booman comes up in the rabbit holes you inhabit. takes no energy to point out where you are coming from so your campaign of disinformation does not cause real harm. and elite? hahahaha Start researching who set up and finances those alt-right spin factories you are recommending. the core of america’s wealthy. Sky News is same as Fox News. I thought y’all was abandoning them as MSM. Project Veritas is a criminal swindling project. Ginning up hate against your chosen scapegoats is exactly what the elite would like to see you spending your time on.

    • @youtube watcher
      Cognitive dissonance, much? Lol.
      Video: “President Trump asks Congress to amend COVID-19 relief bill”

    • far as the eye can’s all lies.

      @natasha maier is that your vocabulary word of the day? what day did you have confirmation bias? I saw the mango Mussolini self production from 23 December if that is what you are hawking. A master class in demagoguery, conflating the two bills and feigning outrage at items that were in his own budget. Just as you push the “illegals are stealing your resources” button, he pushed the “congress cares more about transgender people in Pakistan than real Americans” narrative. Slick, but intellectually dishonest and morally bankrupt. Why pretend you are crusading for truth when you are merely pawning off the lies of the actual elite you claim to despise. I don’t really care what gods you worship and kneel before, but to the extent you push the “Covid is a plan for world domination” crap, you erncourage Americans (a significant portion of whom are the most gullible people on earth) to disregard basic decency and simple hygiene by feeling righteous in their ignorant selfishness. That is what I can not let stand uncommented. It is disrespectful and misanthropic. If you have a soul, some day you will regret being part of all that. But maybe you are just a slef-employed wretch shilling for your masters. Who really knows — this is the internet.

  3. This will be the longest January ever!

    • @Diane Black the US has a short but complex history…. But, as to what you are saying, I play with the idea of having “Jesus” standing at the southern Mexican /American border, poor, dirty, tired, torn clothes and speaking Armenian. I wonder how he would be treated by many of the white and right winged “Christians”….

    • @Diane Black as to what you name “moral hypocracy” , covering up root issues throughout politicising – well that is interesting. The US is in one sense rather isolated and still a “new nation” composed by immigrants trying to get a better life. The culture has grown out of a lot of ancestors’ cultures. You had slavery and therefor segregation whtch we don’t have. I read an interesting article about American children who are tought to stand before the American flag dayly, repeating the pledge. This is quite fascinating as this is probably something implemented only in dictatorships. What do you think? Before they changed from a gesture close to the fascist symbolic raised arm with the palm of the hand upwards, into putting the hand over the heart, the photos from that time looks creepy. In the article it was pointed out that this obligation to stand in front of the flag monotonously repeating this pledge text is not far from any authoritarian rule where the population is indoctrinated by the leaders. You just do not question this. In dictatorships It might be more about the portrait than the flag, but still. Under Mao tse toung, Kim yonh un, Lenin and Stalin, Fidel Castro, Pinochet, Hitler, Moussolini Franco…. Always the same. Lead with indoctrination and teach patriotism and superiority. This I think are very dangerous tendencies. It is at the moment very clear how easy this power can be accomplished if you know the “how”. How many have actually read Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”? It’s exquisit know-how. We had to read Mein Kampf in school as we had to study history and world history during approximately 8 years. We also read the communistic manifesto by Marx and Engels, and I believe most people in most European countries have a rather profound understanding of why our history looks at it does. Wars, occupations, ideologies have shattered our countries and changed borders, while the history of your nation is so completely different. Maybe not very influenced from the outside, and that can be the trap… A cultural trap where the outside world passes you, overtakes and develops without making any impression on the US, still convinced it’s the greatest. All countries face problems, but what we see when looking at the US from an otside perspective is a devided nation, a lot of extreme religious people, cults, conspiracy theories and social problems. The electoral system is not very democratic and very slow, the corporations rule, money talks, the press is far from free and you pay a lot of taxes without even being close to the comfortable life we benefit in the EU. We all have free health care and our health care here in Spain is among the top quality health cares in the world. We have paid vacations, most have 5 weeks, we have unions which have negociated good conditions for workers etc etc. I actually think that big part of the US population is exhausted and fearful. Afraid of being sick in the hands of insurance companies thinking only of profit (ours are not private and not profitable) afraid of gun violence, afraid of losing the job and not having enough savings, Maybe this is the time to make big changes in the US.
      (I will probably be trashed for having written this, but I really do not envy you. I get tired just by watching) ….
      I also think women must keep fighting for women’s rights like in many other countries with to much of the society still resting in a patriarchal society. These are just some thoughts and I really hope it will be better for all the people, not just for the rich.

      @Ramon Gonzalez 👈🏻 ICE is coming for you.

    • @Lisa Clark I’m curious – how exactly do you expect Trump to emerge victorious on January 6th? I know of several illegal ways he might try, but the only legal way I’m aware of would require a majority vote of the House to reject one of the certified slates of electors. The House has a Democratic majority, and I can’t see any way for Trump to get even a single Democrat to join such a vote.

    • @James Kuyper Read the constitution stupid 🤪

  4. No point to find here. He never knew what was in the Bill, he has no convictions so yes, no point, just a sad sad man who loves attention

    • @Celtica not if he would attend the meeting. He could have first hand and speak up before they vote to put BS in the bill.

    • Season 4 of The Worse President, I am just happy the show has been cancelled

    • He is two-year-old that never grew UP!!!!! Poor little Donnie!!!!☹☹

    • sentiment is correct however i am certain he has no idea what is in the bill lol, he has never read a book thicker then his checkbook i am certain of as well

    • Trump held up $900 billion of aid for a week. At 0.5% annual interest, that comes to about $86 million. Trump should be required to personally stump up that money – without dipping into any fraudulently obtained funds he has access to – and the money passed on to those who lost out.

    He screwed up unemployment and stimulus checks for everyone
    Lesson to America ….
    Trump is getting even….for getting caught.





    • i though trump has a better plan .. he has no plan what a fool .. waste millions of people relaxing time during Xmas weekend ..

    So many opportunities wasted, by such a small, insecure little man.

  7. Wanted the optics of a last minute hail Mary, to look like a hero… But we know better.

    • @Quaker 2019 Agree – and that’s why he Must Remain in White House Power with help now from Russia.

    • @billycarson 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ It’s amazing how stupid you cult#45ers are.

    • There are a lot of suckers out there who cannot see what’s in front of their faces. They’re still giving him money, which is what this is all about. He’ll need it to defend himself against the charges soon to be filed regarding his multitude of crimes.

    • Brian Williams | December 28, 2020 at 1:36 PM | Reply

      @Michael Seymore What’s insane is that many of them believe tRump is also fighting the cannibal, pedophile, satanic dems.

    • @Bryce Brogan I don’t believe the money will help like the suckers think – just like he appointed the Supreme Court justices & he thought they will work for him & not the Constitution of the USA. Also I believe the King in the White House will be going to jail for most likely the rest of his life If he remains In the USA Outside of White House Power after the November Election is over with by past women who he did enjoy, obstruction of justice through the Mueller Report, City & State of New York Taxes, Debt, etc. The King Must Remain In White House Power (to stop Uncle Joe from becoming President) but this time as their Dictator (because he lost the election as President) not President under a Totalitarianism regime supporting Civil War & I believe that the supposed over 70 million voters (he conned) who did vote for the King in the White House will now support the King more than ever – Not the Constitution of the USA and some will be forced to also. Unfortunately I don’t believe Uncle Joe will be President when the law is saying he should be if Democracy fails due to Civil War, Economic Collapse (Only the Wealthy get More Wealthy), etc. like it did in Greece, etc. Russia, the King and section 230 will now be front & center in the USA besides COVID-19 come January I believe.

  8. The Lord of Chaos strikes again.

    The Trump play plan:

    Create an issue where no issue exists.

    Demand, demand, demand.

    Get nothing.

    Agree and claim credit.

    Bigly good!

      @patrick kennedy I see that Trump isn’t the only giving Obama a free place to live.

      Why can’t you just admit that, given all the political games the Republicans played during his tenure, Obama not only pulled this nation out of the Great Recession ( a curse inflicted upon us by Bush’s embracing of trickle down economics), he & Biden built us an economy that, try as he might, it took Trump 4 years to break. And that wasn’t the only thing he did which has proven to be a great boon to many Americans! The ACA, while far from perfect, is a very popular program & has provided so many Americans who could not afford health care to obtain it. I was NOT an Obama supporter, but he earned my respect. But then I am a reasonable person who is open-minded enough that I can & will change my views if I’m presented with facts that make sense & can be confirmed to be true.

    • @patrick kennedy So, you finally admit they’re practically the same—golfing instead of working included

    • @patrick kennedy I wish way better than Trump the con man

    • You got it right

  9. Glad he got to go play golf as Americans stressed and worried through Christmas about whether there would be even this tiny bit of relief. Him being put in prison will too good for this piece of crap.

  10. “ it will be harming his legacy, “ as if, there is something to harm.

    He tried to make it look like he was fighting for Americans lmao

    • @G d We will see what happens but I believe Russia, the King and section 230 will be right up front together with COVID-19 in January. I can’t wait until Uncle Joe takes over the White House. Also stay safe & keep the mask on if you do go out anywhere.

    • @Lisa Clark Go sit down somewhere, “Karen”..

    • @BILL W 😂😂😂😂😂😂you got jokes..another delusional racist maga cult member

    • @Shonte Brent 🤪

    • @Reece Reece So far only “Billions Spent on U.S. Defenses Failed to Detect Giant Russian Hack” did occur. I am still looking at a Complete & Total Power Blackout of the USA including section 230 all Communication (internet, radio, TV, hacking of many online bank accounts, etc.) through Connections with his own private Defense Department & take it from there with COVID-19 running wild just what will happen to the USA in January. Once Russia gets into the USA everything will be State communications on the internet, TV, Radio except for shortwave radio hidden up in your attic somewhere & the King in the White House will then stay & be promoted from President (to his many followers) now to Dictator over the entire USA including the USA 30 Billionaires who More than Gladly support him (because the fools think they won’t be Taxed at all like he was with no tax, etc.) but Wrong – now with future Big Huge Massive Private Taxes to the King & the Family to pay off Huge Massive Debts & from other Republicans, etc. & also take control of Unbelievable Private Wealth you can be quite sure the 30 billionaires will be stopped (COVID-19 also) from leaving the USA. I believe this will all happen before Uncle Joe gets into the White House. I believe the King in the White House is a pathological liar & con artist so watch out especially for communications & section 230 which can be changed next month when the King leaves Office if Russia does not enter the USA & Uncle Joe does go to the White House.

  12. It was a power trip at OUR EXPENSE.
    The Art of an _azz hol3_

    The End

    • 😄🤣😅

    • Like the bully in the playground who runs to the teacher first after you’ve punched them back

    • Disgusting, cheating pretend president Elect Joe and his disgusting, corrupt family Will NEVER get close to the White House. Heading to DC on the 6th to watch Mr Biden officially lose and Librals cry AGAIN!

    • Our mean the pathetic 600 bucks..oh good lord what would i do without the 600..If your waiting around for 6 months for 600 bucks to be tossed at you while congress sends billions to foreign countries..please find a tall tree and good rope..!!!

    • @Lisa Clark 👈🏼 Here to spread Russian propaganda joined 1 month ago

  13. Trump’s legacy is the blood of 320,000 Americans

  14. His last 9 holes finally got him a two digit golf score? And that’s with him cheating.

  15. “… it will hurt his legacy …” Nothing could ever hurt his legacy: worst president, laziest president, least competent president, corruptest president, dumbest president … All that makes him the most dangerous person on the face of the earth considering the military power of the US. What a legacy!

    • Really scary stuff! January 20th can’t come soon enough!

    • @Jo Co you are completely wrong about what his cronies when to prison for, they plead guilty for lying to the FBI on their contacts with Russian agents while working for Trump’s campaign, absolutely nothing to do with taxes, trump corruptly pardon these felons because they colluded with Russia on Trump’s behalf, but you would not know this because you only listen to the lies that come out of this con man’s mouth. It had zero to do with Clinton. Stay blind that’s the only way to support Trump

    • @Jo Co Trump worst and most corrupt president

    • President Donald J Trump is one of the finest President’s we have ever had. He upheld every thing he said he would do. Lowered taxes, reduced unemployment, got the stock market to record highs, got a covid vaccine in less than a year. What can you put on your resume, besides supplying the American people with nonsense?

    • @Jo Co yes he cut A deal in the middle east, so well done – you who only reads right wing propaganda. The deal is between Israel, UAE, and Bahrain, there are 22 countries that make up Arab states, so it is just a start. But moving the US embassy to Jerusalem heightened tensions in the middle east again. But kudos, 2 out of 22 Arab countries recognize Israel.

    He wanted to make people suffer for their vote! He had a tantrum

  17. The man is a reality tv “star” (lower case intended). He’s creating his version of a cliff-hanger. That’s all this is. We – the American people the GOP gave him power over – are merely bit players who get crumbs while he crows about how much more he did than anyone else in history.

    He did turn us into a third-world country, by his own admission. There’s that. 😕

  18. In his warped mind the point was to make the GOP look bad and him look like a saviour! His way to influence the Georgia Senate elections and stick it to the Republicans for not overturning the November elections. He is Trumping his true colours!

  19. This is what a malignant narcissist does. Creates confusion and pain for as many people as possible.

  20. Trump is like an arsonist who wants praise for putting out fires he started in the first place.
