  1. Biden is leading by 16% in National polls. I’d be in a panic too. Vote out Typhoid Trump and his enablers.

  2. Trump and barr need to be HELD accountable for their actions

  3. Barr is a scared puppet!

    When will Trump start foaming at the mouth? This pitiful man-child has lost any trace of sanity: he is so full of desperation, rage, and steroids that just churning out deranged tweets and calling his opponents hateful names is not enough! He will soon erupt like a volcano with foam pouring out of his foul mouth instead of lava. God save America!

    Trump ran out of fools he’s tired let’s talk about something else 🤔

      Remember the Racist Senator Robert Byrd?
      Robert Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, a designated hate group, The Washington Post reported in 2005. In his autobiography Robert C. Byrd: Child of the Appalachian Coalfields, Byrd wrote that he viewed his leadership in the Klan as a helpful platform from which to launch his Democrat Career.

      The Senator, who once filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for more than 14 hours in the Senate.
      Finally the Republicans had to push through the Civil Rights act of 1964.

      Senator Robert Byrd died in 2010.
      At Senator Robert Byrd’s Funeral a eulogy by then Vice-President Joe Biden described Byrd as “Fiercely Devoted to his Principles,” a 👉”Friend,” “Mentor” and a “Guide”, comments which have brought Joe Biden Fresh Criticism as he enters the final stretch of his Campaign for President of the United States.

      President Trump has never been a Racist.

    • Let’s keep Trump under the microscope until a new president is sworn in.

      Yepp, they’re all infected by the orange agent Covid. he’s really drainig his own swamp, the only job he’s for 4 years.

    • @Rocky Koast Keep looking for that Russian collusion that never occurred.

  6. Think it’s bad now? Wait until the final days until the election. Trump’s coronavirus infected brain is going to wreck mayhem on this country.

    • Angel M. Bouchard | October 9, 2020 at 12:57 AM | Reply

      Or from November 3rd to January 20th.

    • What about the further derangement after the election landslide loss… its not truly over until January when they finally pry him out of the White House – until then expect rage, spite, revenge, law suits, pardoning the guilty/himself and general public mayhem.

      I don’t think Trump knows how to do lame duck…

    • RoseMarie Hogan | October 9, 2020 at 1:21 AM | Reply

      As of it already hasn’t.

    • Alan Moore they can transport him directly from the White House to Riker’s Island.

    • No the real test will be after he loses but not out of the white house till Jan 20th..

  7. Buckle up folks, Trump’s about to turn up the CRAZY to 11. He’s desperate!

    • And he will do that in the 11th hour.

    • Vote, Vote, Vote!!!

      no of us will be able to say life was boring.


    • Trump knows his lies only work on his gullibles and complicit republican Senators. If the Democrats take the Senate and Trump is no longer President, Trump’s corruptions may be investigated. Not to mention any other Law Agency will have at him, because he won’t be protected by the Presidency. Not to mention all his financial debts will be due, And also Putin may reveal what he has on Trump, since he no longer would be useful. Trump is a cornered rat, but will lash out like a rattlesnake in desperation.

    • Everyday Americans can CHOOSE to ignore his ridiculous orders. If that happens, Trump has no power. I’d go further and say the same to DOJ employees; “refuse illegal and unconstitutional orders from Barr”. When that happens, and I can’t believe it hasn’t already, Trump and his enablers are done for.

  8. George Washington would demand that Trump resign . One nation united that Trump must go away from the White House for good.

  9. Trump is grabbing for any and everything he can, but it’s not working

      @Tessmage Tessera don’t get so cocky. never underestimate the enemy..

    • @Vlad Skeiroskvlasida <---- YouTube account 3 days old. Ignore.

    • Tessmage Tessera | October 9, 2020 at 3:23 AM | Reply

      @Vlad Skeiroskvlasida I’m not underestimating anything.

    • I think Barr was forced to show the results of his latest investigation and another grand jury in which these Democratic politicians were not even brought up, they probably for the 3rd or 4th time got 0 indictments. Barr. Trump and the RNC should be charged for the cost of all these bogus grand juries and those who have spent 4 years defending themselves should sue.

    • He’ll be grabbing a hospital bed rail before the end of next week.

  10. Billy Barr is Trump’s puppy….😂😂

  11. How a guy who is not even a Republican but a mere imposter blew up the GOP . The real hoax .

    • @Tyler Bates If Obama did it… but he didn’t. Now finish making that sandwich.

    • @angela bluebird60 He’s a Republican now. And I agree that he’s not an American in character.

    • @John Wood agreed.

    • @Richard Darlington I do know that. So what? He’s been a Republican longer. Reagan was a Democrat once too. Did you not know that? What the F is your point?

      Trump registered as a Republican in Manhattan in 1987 and since that time has changed his party affiliation five times. In 1999, Trump changed his party affiliation to the Independence Party of New York. In August 2001, Trump changed his party affiliation to Democratic. In September 2009, Trump changed his party affiliation back to the Republican Party. In December 2011, Trump changed to “no party affiliation” (independent). In April 2012, Trump again returned to the Republican Party.[

    • The republicans law makers will learn their hard lesson on November 3rd for allowing the tyrant to destroy democracy.

  12. why doesnt anyone check into the trump campaign..

  13. He has lost what’s left of his diseased mind.

  14. Let us get out and Vote in GREAT NUMBERS for BIDEN/HARRIS so there would
    be NO QUESTION as to who is the clear WINNER! Let us save our

      @jlo Ignorance, doubt due to a steady diet of the fake news media.
      The truth —
      Trump = the Republic, the patriots, drain the swamp.
      Biden = the swamp, corruption, lies, same as with Obama and Clinton.

    • Trump needs to be arrested and LOOSE by default, he’s lost it and nothing else should be tolerated from this Sht!

    • Calvin Campbell | October 9, 2020 at 8:18 AM | Reply

      Maharajji NKB riiiight! Zero criminal indictments in 8 years of Obama/Biden. SEVEN under Trump, including his closest “advisors”. That’s not fake news, that’s HISTORY.

    • Maharajji NKB | October 9, 2020 at 2:12 PM | Reply

      @Calvin Campbell Zero indictments – Obama.
      Seven indictments – Trump.
      Just shows how the swamp is in desperate need of draining. How can we secure real justice, if the justice system itself has been corrupted? For example, just look at the situation with Clinton’s illegal e-mail server. Comey (corrupt) comes out and makes a statement. ‘Yes. We know she’s guilty, and here’s why – lists offenses. BUT, we are not going to recommend prosecution.’ WHAT??
      Then look at the Mueller fiasco (corrupt). It was a politically motivated hit job, all in the attempt to find something to take out the President with. They failed pinning the President, so they had to settle for ruining the lives of his close associates. All of the Mueller convictions/guilty pleas need to be thrown into the trash can,..recognized as fruit of a poisonous tree.

    • Calvin Campbell | October 9, 2020 at 4:20 PM | Reply

      Maharajji NKB keep believing all the lies from this administration who hasn’t told the truth since before the election.

  15. Covid boy Trump now desperate to keep power by any means.

  16. Desperate measures by a monstrous clown with a monstrous ego.

  17. Domestic Terrorists arrested for intent to kidnap, terrorise and overthrow an elected Governor and nothing but 🦗🦗from Trump and Barr.

    • Rodney Caviness | October 9, 2020 at 4:07 PM | Reply

      Biden had the decency to pull his negative ads out of empathy for trumps ..trump is trying to send him to jail..Message to your empathy …Stop bringing knives to a gunfight

    • taxiuniversum | October 9, 2020 at 4:43 PM | Reply

      Hadn’t Trump told them to „liberate“ Michigan?

    • @foxy brown The Governor is an elected official to threaten to kidnap terrorise and overthrow an elected Governor is to commit sedition. Do try and stick to the facts not just ‘alternative facts’

    • @Rodney Caviness Exactly and vote this wannabe Dictator and his enablers out of the People’s House

    • @American Patriot tRump lied and 200K+ American died…..

  18. Vote blue. All our lives depend on it.

    This has crossed over into terrorism…trump is a terrorist by definition .

    • Trump fit the the label of being a “terrorist” because because he terrorize the life of hundred thousands of American for his inept, not only mention his attempt to tear down our democracy.
      Down Ballot blue on November 3rd…BiDon 2020

      @B E More like Proud Boys and militia groups that plot to kidnap governs and attack law enforcement. Where your outrage?

    • @Brian Van Horne I stand corrected. You are completely correct.

    “donald trump is the worst president in the history of this country.”

    That is the official understatement of 2020

    • Obama gave money to Iran that was later used to fund attacks against US military personnel. Bill Clinton signed NAFTA into law which gutted US manufacturing.
