      Get in TOP SHAPE with “Red Pull” and do easily 20 pull up’s ! TRUMP himself gives the proof in
      . See Donnie at his best !

  2. Gen. Flynn is not only wrong, but clearly he has lost it.
    His pardon should not stand.

    • @Titanium Is Real Seriously? Unemployment was 3.5% in 2019 – Dropping it nearly 1.2% in 3 years – the fastest decline in years.

    • @LD Belanger You are wrong about that. Trump WAS impeached, but not removed from office. He was impeached on two counts of obstruction of justice, but only one Republican Senator, Mitt Romney, along with the 47 Democratic minority voted him out of office. It takes a 2/3 Senate majority vote to have a President removed from office. Those are the facts. You’re welcome.

    • @michalena333 obviously you didn’t read the my entire entry but it doesn’t surprise me you want a trophy.

    • @LD Belanger I can’t find your post that I commented on, so I’ll just say I’m sorry for any miscommunication. I thought I was agreeing with you because you do have a good sense of the legal matters at hand.

  3. As P.T. Barnum said, “there’s a sucker born every minute.” Trump has located all of them. An incredible outreach program.

    • @Benjamin Romberg — I think you’ll find Rick is being extremely sarcastic , he’s definitely not a Trump supporter .
      He’s actually encouraging the halfwits to weigh in with their cash ; not a bad thing , these nutters need to learn the hard way.

    • Perfect thank you love the comment

    • You can’t fix stupid, but the red hats make them easier to spot….

    • @Dudley Burleson google how much trump has put the us in debt and that 50 million u were mention that’s clearly fake, all of a sudden becomes a very very very small number compared to trillions. White boy

  4. Still fleecing the rubes on his way out the door. Serves them right.

    After Flynn comments promoting sedition, you deduce that it was true he really did betray America by breaking byte Logan Act.

    • It’s like trump never really was a president, he’s just a mob boss. All these people getting threats for standing against him, these are the people who have American values.

      According to six scholars of constitutional law and presidential power, a 2018 executive order gives the president the ability to impose economic sanctions on foreign entities who interfere in a U.S. election. It does not give the president the ability to impose martial law. Under the Constitution, the president can’t unilaterally impose martial law. ​

      Meaning – Trump and his Supporters can’t ask for martial law to overturn the election it’s unconstitutional SORRRRY TRUMP BAAAABBBBBY 🤪🥴😘 😘😘😘🤪🤪🤪🤪🥴🥴🥴

    • @Strawberries Nd Crème only half true but you tried here’s your participation trophy now go get in your safe space cuz this might hurt your weak fragile little mind. He does have the power to enact marshall law not to overturn anything but to gather the evidence that is being held back from his team. He should have declared it weeks ago and he wouldn’t be in the time crunch he’s in. But we need to see how deep this corruption runs and boy oh boy it certainly does run deep. Supreme court justices? Yep
      Members of our higher parts of government? Oh absolutely they’re in on it. Anyone can see what they are doing. If there’s nothing to hide let the examinations take place let the signature verification happen. But no we’re just supposed to sit back and shut up because they said this was the safest election ever? Hardly the case. Why are the ones claiming this on record only 4 short years ago claiming the systems are bad and can be fraudulent and easily hacked

  6. Taking a page from his hero: “You can fool some of the people some of the time, you can fool some of the people all of the time….”
    What? there’s more?!?

  7. The thing is, they don’t care. His cult followers love being conned by him. It’s unreal.

  8. Do you need any more proof that Flynn is anti-democracy? He belongs in prison and so does Trump.

  9. When Trumpolini is finally indicted i hope bail is revoked due to him being a flight risk!

    How are these people not being charged with sedition and domestic terrorism? WTF.

  11. Trump to his donors, I like uneducated people…oops, except you guys, your money is good with me…🤔🤔

  12. The trumpons robbing the country under the table!

  13. Why is any of this a surprise, of course he’s been ripping the country’s what he does, what he has always done.. he deserves nothing more than a place in GITMO along with is whole family and enablers..

  14. Are you surprised? He needs money. You know how in debt he’s in. His disease is STILL spreading.

    Merry Christmas Suckers!!! He’s Going To Have A Happy New Year.

    He’s laughing all the way to the bank a his believers expenses.

  17. He’s been a conman his whole life, why would he change now…?

  18. It’s irrelevant how much he’s raised. he can’t spend it on Riker’s Island.

  19. This was the most corrupt administration ever!!! It will take years before we know it all!

  20. Audit the TREASURY FUNDS.
