  1. What Trump is doing to our government is disgusting. November can’t come soon enough.

    • I know Trump Train 2020 all aboard

    • @King OfTroy
      As if Trump cares about you and your family.

    • Evil trump will cheat again. Ivanka bought voting machines and trump replaced the head of the post office in case we have mail in ballots the fix is in. He must be removed asap

    • @Truth 90
      Meanwhile, this week Trump fired the top people at Voice of America. VOA, paid by taxpayers, has been thwarting communism since WWII but Trump accused VOA of being communist! This included the spin-offs of the top people at Voice of Europe, Asia, etc.
      Now he has free access to this worldwide media to do with what he wants.
      Sound familiar?

      People who supports Trump are supporting everything that is slicing the underbelly of the rule of law, the Constitution and the freedoms it gives.

    Wow, all broadcasting heads were removed. They will turn these entities into propaganda machines for Trump. This is crazy time.

  3. Trump really is going to try to steal the American 2020 election. We can’t let him do that.

      He cheated in 2016 and nothing happened to him. His braindead followers dont care how corrupt he is.. they are just as despicable.

      @Richard Parker
      Richard I am on awe of the years I have been here I have never seen such crap gping on a daily his stooges are really stooges… they have broken ever bow taken and they should not be in any seats… all this could have been avoided if they had been loyal to our country instead of a little boy that has a mayor learn get disorder …. I so…. dislike this numbnut ignorant little 9 year old boy …. can not just blame him though as much as we would like to… but it is the republicans..

    • Mistair Arts And why not? Who’s to stop him? Right Lindsey?: 🤷‍♂️

    • ​@Theocritus All the people in America who actually care about the Constitution and living in a democracy. Do you seriously think he will stop at just one thing. That he won’t come after your rights as well. He’s already after your right to vote… or does him rigging an election with the Russian’s or the Chinese mean your vote still counts… He wants to be a dictator. Dictators dictate what will be, and everyone else is forced to follow. That includes you. Whether you like it or not… I suspect that you won’t like it, but maybe you want to live as the subject of a tyrant. I don’t.

    • Mistair Arts You misread the post.

  4. No second impeachment, just a full on removal of Trump, because this has now become a war!

    • Penny Liqueur | June 20, 2020 at 11:48 AM | Reply


    • Sick or not, will fight to death with weapons, email me for war if needed, have to take these types people out, we need to stick up with weapons, we can’t play nice anymore, they haven’t seen nothing yet

    • @Penny Liqueur : You need to lay off of that that cheap Penny a shot moonshine. Let me take a guess. You live in one of those failed red states like McConnells Kentucky, dependant on socialist hand outs from the federal coffers.

    • Dorothy Gears | June 20, 2020 at 6:55 PM | Reply

      @Penny Liqueur
      Yup all those traitorous actions are trumps. He will fail bigly. Then you can stop trolling for murderous Putin.

    • time for an overthrow of the tyrant.

  5. Destruction of America one brick at a time. Trump the Traitor accelerates his Putin mission to obliterate democracy as he realizes he will lose 2020. Good Riddance, see you in jail bunker boy.

      @Pete 952 And Assange is still in prison?🤔

      “It is better to discuss things, to argue and engage in polemics than make perfidious plans of mutual destruction.”
      – Mikhail Gorbachev

      Don Quixote explains to Sancho that the windmills he thought were giants, really were giants; he says that his enemy turned them into windmills to prevent him from getting the glory of killing them.

      When Don Quixote sees the windmills in the distance, he immediately perceives them to be giants. When Sancho Panza can’t see giants and questions Don Quixote, the hero insists that they’re giants. He says that they’re two leagues tall with long arms…

      …enemy dependency: Is it a cultural thing, political, or economical?

    • trump loves america

    • Oh please yes! 🙏💗

      He needs to be ousted out of office and the Republican Senate needs to step up! They should have a long time ago. We all have been watching where this Presidency has been heading for too long now,yet here we are. If we keep waiting around around and twiddling our thumbs,I’m afraid it’ll be too late. I’m seriously concerned about the fate of this nation. Maybe we should start demanding that our elected officials step in and stop this madness.

    • @Denise Hughes good words. Too bad Republicans don’t care anymore.

    Once again Putin smiles again. His puppet Trump is killing freedoms across the globe. Beware American Trump’s evil spreads


    • For a little levity check out Putin’s Toy[click the J to play]. It’s a punk rock anti Trump song. The chorus echos your comment, so I know you’ll appreciate the sarcastic sense o humour in the video. It features top Canadian musicians and Female vocalists. I wrote it and do the lead vocals.Hopefully you ind the video to be a humorous diversion to break up your day. Feel free to leave a comment, I value your opinion Mignon Simpson

    • Yes, for Putin the KGB getting Trumpski elected has proven to be the gift that keeps on giving!


    • @mac turner : Let me guess. You’re a sheep Trump supporter that swallows every single one of his lies whole, and licks up every last drop of sludge from Fox News.
      Did I get that right ?
      Screaming in caps is cute. Seems to be trending with you lot.
      Is it the polls that are upsetting you ?

    Hopefully people will understand just how IMPORTANT IT IS TO VOTE! USA FOR BIDEN 🇺🇸

  8. He couldn’t have done this without moscow mitch. Traitors.

  9. It’s certainly is alarming for this group to represent the voice of America. Vote them out !

  10. He’s got his own State Run Media Company. This is what he’s been trying to do with Fox. Guess it didn’t work but someone figured it out.

    • Just another agency that has to be rebuilt from the ground up. Goebbels has taught this man well.

    • @Penny Liqueur So you think the capitalist controlled media that is reluctant to go deep into the Trump-Xi, U.S.-China, Covid19 connection is against Trump? You shouldn’t call other people names.

    • @Penny Liqueur Globalist??? Keep drinking your KoolAid! The most notable Globalist President in America was Reagan. Stop watching your TV and read a book. Any book. Just read. It’ll calm your fevered mind.

    • @Penny Liqueur : You really should take something for that screaming hysteria. Let me take a guess here. You’re deeply, deeply religious, right ?
      All fascists have their rote justifications close at hand.

      @Penny Liqueur hurling insults and using all caps, you must be one of trumps uneducated fans. Did you sign your waiver?

  11. American is slowly getting like Germany in the 1930swith trump running the country

    • @Rolyat Neek 1) align your self with only the wealthiest and make sure the are your friends.
      2) any media that does not blindly support everything you say and do is lying (fake News)
      3) choose an enemy. it does not matter who or why as long as your supporters can easily spot them in a crowd, by dress, skin colour, language, or all three. it gives you a common enemy.
      4) declare national emergency. we KNOW you can find a reason true or not. Hitler only had to do it once, if it takes you more, well you are not Hitler YET
      5) declare Martial law. we know you would need to use the Insurrection Act of 1807 but that will work just fine.
      6) suspend the constitution. once there is Martial law, your people will need extraordinary powers to maintain order, so this is a necessary step.

      these are the basic steps Hitler followed when taking over Germany, now, but for interference from the military, and not all of those, the Insurrection act would have been used by Garbage Drumpf and you half wits would be well on your way to a full blown Nazi Fascist gov’t

    • @Broken Connection and what the corporations want more than anything right now is a war. the profit margin is fabulous

    • You have no clue about Nazi Germany!! Your an uneducated, indoctrinated, clown!!

    • ​@Penny Liqueur You are just another Russian bot.

    • @Penny Liqueur ok boomer

    When one was un distress they sent out a cry for help: S.O.S, this is America’s message. So sad!!!!

    • I fly the flag upside down. Country in Distress.!

    • When our country is in distress we turn the flag upside down. This is a symbol to all countries the USA is in trouble. A sign asking help from our allies

      Unfortunately, I believe we are at that time again. But this president has made sure to alienate all the allies we have. His agenda is being well orchestrated behind the scenes & we the unwitting participants. By letting the Republican Senate, get away with not following through on his Impeachment. Completely removing him & his cronies from office.

      If We don’t fight for our country’s existence and freedoms, who will? We must fight this traitor, bringing him & allies to justice.

      Even 1,000,000 people could achieve retaking our government from trump!

      So very sad!

  13. I can’t believe in a country of 330 million people, you guys just seem to be sitting back while Trump and his fascist cult within the GOP destroy your country. Thank you Rachel for reporting on this.

    • 99% of the population are minding their own day to day struggles and just worry about their next paycheck,already divided,tRump and his cronies slice up Democracy uninterrupted,carving it up and converting it to Dictatorship.

    • @Ian Dalziel it’s actually Saturday

    • What do you suggest, that we run into their crosshairs? How can we fight the police and national guard and the DEA, FBI, etc?

    • its not us sitting back and watching, its the Republican party that sold us out!!!

      Bruce Osman Second Amendment? Tyrranical government? Those same officials see what’s happening. This is being done to them & their families as well. Once they realize that their just cannon fodder for the rich they’ll come around! We just have to make them REMEMBER THAT!

  14. Fascism is here, America. If you still can’t see it, you’re wilfully blind.

    • here in thailand. what trump did was similar to when our goverment got overthorne by soldier. they control a media .
      and the next thing they do is tear apart a constitution. make a new one. and write a new constitution that what they did never happen.
      i don’t know if trump gonna do that. but you never know..

    • nu , so is in Taiwan the government controls all the media now 🥺 all news are pro Tsai or else their NCC gets to fine them.

    • That you CAN see it, and do so while failing to consider that your own expression of free speech that was written with no fear of punishment is indeed the very opposite of what fascism would permit, is to say that you’re willfully stupid.

  15. hmmmm sounds like someone wants to declare Martial Law.



  17. I was missing Rachel’s “history lesson” lead-ins. They may not be for everyone, but very original and enlightening.

    Dictators always takes over the media. No surprise there.

  19. Thomasa Seymour | June 20, 2020 at 8:15 AM | Reply

    “That guy”needs to be arrested!!! With trump! The Americans deserve freedom from trumps lies!!!

  20. Holy crap, this looks & sounds like the beginnings of the collapse of America.
