    1. @Justice Justice
      Biden and his Son is still wicked and Pure Evil and so are you ..I use to be democratic raised democratic..No more…Because of people like you and Biden… It seems Satan has put that party under a Curse..it’s Darkness.. Democrats seem like they are hypnotized in a strange trance demons has taken over that party..I’m willing to bet Money that you Hate God
      Trump talks about God that’s why you hate him

    1. @daniel harris – And after watching MAGAs *beating Capitol cops* with ballbats, fire extinguishers *and* an American flag-still-attached flagpole, I *don’t* want to hear their ‘Blue Lives Matter’ spiels anymore.

    1. I hope you’re right. The GOP needs to go extinct. Maybe rational conservatives can build a new party. A one party system is not good either.

    2. Not so much the end of the GOP, there was already an autopsy published on that, this is the rise of the Mercan Fascist Party, the Evangelical Talibanis. The RoT voters (republic of trump) wil always be a force to be reckoned with because they are 13.8% of the electorate – the good news is that they are scattered all over the place and can’t control battleground states like another 13.8% demographic (African Americans as percentageof total population).

      Pew states:
      “The number of Black Americans eligible to vote for president has reached a record 30 million in 2020, with more than one-third living in nine of the nation’s most competitive states – Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – a higher share than the 29% of all U.S. eligible voters who live in these states. Nationwide, Black eligible voters now make up 12.5% of the U.S. electorate, up from 11.5% in 2000.”

  1. Trump’s actions directly lead to a democratic president, democratic house, and democratic senate. He really did make America great again!

    1. @Barbara Wanlass Both parties have done wrong all along. He was just too bold with his. Because he isn’t a “real politician”, he didn’t know how to play the game discreetly and keep his mouth shut whenever he lost a round.

    2. @KD That has to scare trump knowing he’s more of a loser than he wants us to see. We know it , now the courts will show it.

    3. If, by ‘bold’, you meant *’gleefully punching down* at those he disagreed with, and *doing so from the highest office* in our nation’, Ms. White…then sure, we’ll stipulate to that.
      *No one was safe* from #45’s *grammar-mangled, randomly-capitalized rage-tweets* – not our allies, or grieving widows, “Gold Star” families, almost *every race and religion* on Earth, and *most especially* ‘women’… *all* of the above listed were ‘fair game’ from the self-appointed ‘Dear Leader’.
      #45WasTheWorstPresidentEver

  2. The answer is MONEY! Trump and Lindsay know if they stay in the spot light, Crazy Right Wingers gonna keep sending money!

    1. Work to publicly shame all republican doners, pressure & boycott them all to choke off their $$$, work to see they wear their party over country seditous stain forever, & start work now to see they are NEVER elected to ANY public office ever again! Coup attempts & sedition must have consequences or they are only dress rehearsals!

    1. Biden has already issued over 50 executive orders. Democrats, the fake news and big tech are censoring Trump and other conservatives. It’s the very definition of fascism.

    2. I live in Germany and I do know what facism means. Trump is a facist – no ifs, ands or buts. A right-wind facist.

    1. @CynAnne1 And my god, how could I forget that he bragged to letterman about how he breached the capitol building and sat in a senators chair and got arrested for it, called African Americans “super predators,” Leeched of the people for 48 years, Enriched his family by abusing his position in government, 10% for the big guy, Assulted a woman in 1993, told voters that if they don’t vote for him they ain’t black, said that cuomos response to coronavirus was the “gold standard” of responses,I guess a cover up is the gold standard to him. Pathetic president..

    1. @Barbara Wanlass For whatever reason they are scared of him, or is Putin they fear.I do believe they also owe money to Russia and China, that’s just one possible reason.

    2. The unstoppable demise of the repub party is now inevitable. To the chicken littles out there that does NOT mean US will be a single party nation. That’s just nonsense, other parties will form. Two groups within the repub party are already negotiating their existence either as factions or break aways. As much as I relish the dismantling of the current republican party, I recognize an opposition party is essential for democracy.
      I hope dump does start up his own party, “patriot party” apparently, all the dross can move there clearing out the swamp.

    3. @Richard Batchelder Pfizer and Moderna created those vaccines without any financial help from the Trump administration. So stuff your praise, science works.

    4. Work to publicly shame all republican doners, pressure & boycott them all to choke off their $$$, work to see they wear their party over country seditous stain forever, & start work now to see they are NEVER elected to ANY public office ever again! Coup attempts & sedition must have consequences or they are only dress rehearsals!

  3. Joe forgot the rest of Lyin’ Lindsey’s quote, which is even more appropriate: “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…

    …AND WE WILL DESERVE IT!”

    1. It’s amazing how so many Republican politicians made accurate apocalyptic predictions about Trump and the future of the Republican party and they are the ones who are destroying themselves for him. It’s almost like they knew they were going to be hypnotized by him. SMH

    1. Agreed on! Now they feel comfortable with it. Didn’t notice them before Donald Fraud Duck gave them courage to hate openly.

    1. Don’t take that for granted but we can hope. If dems follow the rule of law, dump and his family would be jailed for life.

    2. @Richard Batchelder you don’t forget that your mister tRump denied that the virus was deadly. I would not be so sure that you got your 2 doses thanks to him. Don’t be so sure. Only time will tell. Have a nice day.

    1. But why? The most rabid trumpcult members are people trump wouldn’t bother to pee on if they were on fire. He did nothing for them except use them for votes & donations, give them Covid then got them arrested & they STILL love him!

    2. It’s like Stormfront from “The Boys” said: “People love what I have to say! They believe in it! They just don’t like the word Nazi…”

    3. Numerically white America is outnumbered and they do not like it, or want to embrace it. They are choosing to fight it out through jerrymandering and non white voter oppression.

  4. Lindsey not only said “When we nominate Trump, we’ll get dstroyed” He also added: “And we will deserve it.” Right!

    1. @Taylor Fox I’ll stand by my statement, History will tell… so far Biden has killed over 80,000 Jobs.!!!

    2. @Richard Batchelder You can stand by it all day long, you just can’t prove it’s true. Because it’s BS.
      How can a man that lost the House, Senate and White House in one term be all that? trump is a one term twice impeached 3rd rate con man with the IQ of a turnip, and is still smarter than his simple minded cult members. Sad and Pathetic.

    1. I wouldn’t be so sure. I think you might live to regret how your media have indoctrinated you.

      It all depends upon whether the socialists take complete control, however, and it’s no longer possible to get them out of office.

    2. @TheDiamond2009 I am sure you are a braindead cultist MAGAt fascist traitor. Now go cry and go back to your CONspiracy bs.

  5. The reason is they think the American public will forget if they themselves act like nothings wrong with Trump’s actions. They are enablers normalizing destructive behavior as being, not so bad. “There’s nothing so bad as something, that’s not so bad.” That’s the mind games they are playing ruthlessly. We must believe what we see with our own eyes and what we have heard if we are to salvage our Country from this madness.

  6. Lost the popular vote, lost the house, lost the presidency, lost the senate…why wouldn’t the Republicans stick with this serial winner.

    1. They stay on the hook because Trump may be a bad president, but he’s an excellent con-man. He sells the notion of, “Greatness is just around the corner! Believe me! Anyone who doesn’t is a Loser!” No matter how many times he is proven wrong or his marks don’t get the returns they expected, he will state “that’s actually a good thing!” and they just need to trust him a little bit longer. And on and on.

  7. Meanwhile, the rest of Baby Cheesus’s congregation still pray to the Toddler Messiah and even make pilgrimages to Mecc A Largo.

  8. People forget that the Republican party was filled with racist self-serving politicians before Trump. They are just more embolden since Trump

  9. Republicans live in opposite land, where bad is good and good is bad. They believe in magical beings, and deny science. There’s no hope for them.
