  1. Dems, should use this picture as ad for the election.

    Oh, I’m sure Susan Collins is, concerned. Spanky Bonespurs did indeed learn his lesson, that he can do anything he wants.

  3. Yeah, this is like when Augustus was declared emperor of Rome and exactly why we were supposed to have coequal branches of government.

    This is some scary, fascist, authorization stuff right here.

    • @Abel Gonzales That’s your argument? That the US hasn’t become as authoritarian as North Korea or China, so there’s nothing to worry about and that’s why people should not bother speaking up and/or acting to prevent the US from proceeding further down that political path? Wow.

      Do you know what fascist means?

    • @Jeffrey Duclos that’s a loaded question. It means a lot of things, but it’s basically like a cult for an entire nation.

    • @Abel Gonzales the United States Senate just raises it’s hand in support of whatever Trump wants. That’s not coequal.

  4. TRUMP: I’ll make a great leader if only I’m allowed to do whatever I want. Keep the Constitution away, overlook all laid down laws and then you’ll see how great a president I’ll be.”

  5. And you expected, what? It’s lumpy Trump, executive assclown in chief.

      Coming for you TRAITORS next January:
      Rudy Ghouliani, William Barr, Steve Mnuchin, Devin Nunez, Rick Perry, Don Jr, Mick Mulveny, and the MAGAT God himself. Can’t wait to see the Orange Cheeto in an Orange Jumpsuit!

      Coming for you too Moscow Mitch McConnell for interfering with the bipartisan election-security bills and for taking Russian oligarch bribes to reduce sanctions.

    • @P. Wasser HIGHEST EVER IN HISTORY DEFICIT AND NATIONAL DEBT. Thank your MAGAT God for BANKRUPTING the US like the rest of his businesses.

      @Gary Vance blah blah blah..burp

    • He will come for us and shut down all social media sites that oppose him. Wait and see! Get 2nd passports, Americans, and do it fast!

    Ahhh, we have our own little Hitler for President. Isn’t that just special? Aren’t we proud?

  10. The USA has been punked BIGLY!!!

    • Eric Martin “Unemployment shot up dramatically during the financial crisis at the end of George W. Bush’s and the start of Barack Obama’s terms before steadily dropping for most of the decade.”

    • Eric Martin “The typical household’s income fell dramatically after the recession, but has recovered since Obama’s second term.”

    • @Antandra i’ve seen the numbers on the recovery after 2009. basically Obama took out a $5 trillion loan to pay off Wall Street’s blunder. did we see anyone get charged for the massive amount of fraud that had gone on for years throughout the whole financial system? no, in fact they were paid huge bonuses for collapsing the global economy. Obama did not care because its those same people who financially contributes to any politician that will allow the fraud to continue and its the US Taxpayer thats paying for it. when will you people *wake up* to the corruption in Washington that has been going on for decades. when will you ask the question of how these career politicians became multi-millionaires on a government salary?

    • @Antandra you talk about trivial numbers of what Obama did just because he injected $5 trillion into the US economy but never addressed the causes of the market crash. it was business as usual back in Wall Street and Washington. something magical is going to happen between now and 2024 and i have a really good idea of how Trump will pull off this financial magic trick and slay these swamp monsters throughout the globe.

  11. How a single member of our armed forces could support this pathetic little wannabe stalin after this final straw boggles my mind.

  12. thats the way how mobsters rule.

  13. Dictators ‘ lives never end peacefully!

    • @jaydee040 apparently you are hopelessly ignorant of the election process. The electoral college system works by the will of the American people. So how can you say that Trump was never LEGITIMATELY elected? The Democrats ran an incredibly stupid campaign in 2016 and it isn’t looking much different this year. 😁 Why didn’t you learn this in school?

    • @jaydee040 you are also ignorant of the constitution and some of its intents
      Put your head back in the sand.

      Usa is a joke now, really funny to watch, dummy trumpies LMAO

    • Yes they do, unfortunately. Stalin, Francisco Franco, Trujillo. Not fair but try to be honest with the facts.

  14. LMFAO….. And the circus still continues.smh

  15. And his Senators blow at the whim of the “President”

  16. RUMP🖕Is a Dicktaker 🤣

    Small-minded scared men protecting a dictator. Sad day for the United States.

  18. DOJ is planning to reduce Roger Stone’s sentence …. soon all the crooks will be on the streets again

  19. Cleaning the swamp! Slowly revealing the snakes in the grass.

  20. The Vindmans should most definitely “SUE” For unfair dismissal

    • They were in appointed positions and are employed at the President’s behest in those positions, therefore President Trump has every right to dismiss them. You should probably educate yourself before running your ignorant mouth. 😁

    • They were re assinged moron

    • Natasha Norman | February 11, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      @Bob Riedel no they shouldn’t, they have no standing. They are military and hi is commander in chief, end of story.

    • Wonder Wonderful | February 11, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @Bob Riedel Altho Trump have every right to dismissed them don’t make it right! We all know it was to get even.
