  1. Trumps managed a coup, he has replaced everyone within the WH with his minions, can this really get any more bizarre???

    • @Dre-Day 1127
      He can joke all he wants the only limit he’s changing is the limited amount of time he has to walk freely. After NY locks him up the south will really hate the NY’ers more. Well the southern swampy areas of the south

    • @Eric Thurmond
      And they pay well for doing nothing

    • @Mike Reseigh
      He won’t break any law he wants, he’ll break every law he can. Desperate people doing desperate things. He’s going to get relentless the closer we get to the election. He may even try some horrible scare/threat tactic? But our CIA will stop him I believe that there’s people he can’t corrupt. Too many honorable ex military in office now. Those who served won’t tolerate treason. Especially who says fellow soldiers die for no good reason. This is what America has to always remember. Trump trying to bring the Taliban here for 911 can’t sit well with Ex Vets. The ones in my family can’t fathom it

  2. thank goodness we are down to the last season of the trump show. All we can hope for is an uneventful end.

      @Eric Cole Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee.

      Eric Cole he may lose his mind by then since sleepy Joe is beating him in the polls. Win/win.

      Redpill christopher I guess if you are rooting for fascism that would be nice for you. Wonder how you’ll do with no freedoms?

    • tainty freshness I’m a veteran too, but if this person was in my chain of command when I served, I’d would be a Canadian citizen by now. (Going through all of the correct legal loops of course.)

    This is a putin installed criminal enterprise folks, drumpf is a national security threat


    • It’s out of dni director hand now. It doesn’t matter really because intelligence committee will look into the complaint.

    • I know and you can bet if he us re-elected it was by illegal means, we need to stop electoral college and do this election old school.

    Trump stupidity and corruption has reached lowest point. Lock him up.

  6. Enough is enough is ENOUGH!! This EVIL CON needs to be placed in a jail cell for the remainder of his lifetime.

  7. His voters don’t understand or even care. Trump does what they want: to keep their guns, to promote racism, get rid of immigrants and worsening the environment. Any other politics are communist in their tiny minds

      Trumps’ primary goal has always been…oppose any and everything Obama had anything to do with…Bush “the elder” made the environmental rules strengthening R eagans’ rules…immigration…this only because a major issue in the last 20 years…but..violence in the southern countries has grown…so has poverty…not drug dealers…not “bad hombres” Trumps’ scared of his shadow…and he wants you be also !!!

    • @Charles L Jones building that wall protect Americans even worthless ones like you. Get out of mommy’s basement and get a job

    • @Arkhamkey it is an FBI statistic, go on their website and look it up lug nut. And get out of mommy’s basement and get a job

    • @Jay Muller

      I can site the sources unlike your lazy tail …. and in that data table it shows 10k gun homicides to 1k knife homicides in 2017 …. how is that anywhere close? Gun homicides took up 66% of the total homicides in that year.

      I actually have a job and live in a house with gf, don’t project your failures in life onto me.

  8. Why am i not surprise? There’s no telling what he’s telling his.mentor and buddy putin.

  9. Rogue administration what is trump getting the usa into

  10. Elizabeth Cameron | September 19, 2019 at 2:11 PM | Reply

    Someone better tackle Trump or he will take this country down. This is serious.

  11. Trump just dug the deep state deeper. He’s involved in a cover up and he needs to be punished. This is why nobody trust the American government.

    • wont do a day in JAIL just destroying usa n JAIL russia got his backmaking MEXICO grate again

      only way chump will be impeached is with real people physically stand in front of him COWARDS ALWAYS RUN

    • fun 419farm nor the media and that is exactly his intentions 👿 sad reality is that he is supported by 39% of voters and republican representatives….

    • Trump: “Look, Puti baby, hand over those pee tapes, let me build a hotel in Moscow, and America is all yours.”
      Putin: “Sounds good Donnie. But you throw in Ivana, ya?”
      Trump: “No worries Puti. Now, about that non-extradition thing we talked about in Helsinki.”

    • His name was Seth Rich

  12. Trump is either selling out the US, or he is lining his own pockets. Traitorous Rat!

  13. OMG does this not sound like a broken system??? A system that refuses to operate as designed is broken… ALL BAD unless the course changes and all gov’t start acting the way the constitution designed.

    Trump worshiping morons love the fact that trump is selling out America for personal profit. There isn’t a single American in the bunch of them.

    • they don’t care, they’re all anti-american traitors

    • No there isn’t….bigly sad

    • I don’t think you people understand what we’re dealing with when you mention Trump followers. These people think he’s an answer to prayer and will be the one to lead the US in the end times. These followers has already infected the Republican Party from the state level on up. That’s why we will never get anything done in Congress that will cross party lines. This tribal politics is hurting our country’s standing, along with Trump, in this world. I can only hope that voting in 2020 will change things, but with Pelosi clogging up the works, I think I’ll vote for a hamster.🐹

  15. Treason is punishable by death under United States Federal Law.

    The departure of Dan Coates and his second in charge seems a lot more troubling now. Seems as if Trump cleaned house so he could control the narrative and flow of the whistleblower report.

  17. Drain the swamp? Heck, the swamp looked like heaven on Earth compared to this black hole.

    • @Stuart WARD
      Then when does he lock us the corrupt Senate, his pitiful AG Barr and then turn himself in. Then it would be mission complete. Or is he setting himself up with the rest of these lowlife so the Democrats can finish them all of in the next 2 elections and he done with them all. In a way by being so obviously corrupt heçs going to get them all voted out and therefore draining this cesspool for good. Then he completed his promise. Only Trump is so stupid to accidently do something right by trying not to do it lol. Stable Genius alright!

    • @S A thoughts I will not, I vote just like you, I have the right to my opion , also I said swamp because he is draining all the money he can from our pocketbooks & he never clarified what the swamp was. If you don’t like my opinion, you get out of the this country. Btw, I vote your way most of the time jerk

    • @David Lafleche
      Buuuuut OBAMAAAAAAA!!!
      you’re a sad weakling David.

    • @stephen gibbs
      tRump IS the swamp Creature, slimy demon…

  18. Trump continues to lie & committing crimes like a mob boss.

  19. This guy Trump is truly the absolute worst president America has ever had!

    • Not according to Lou Dobbs ! He literally said that he is the best president we have ever had.

    • Dobbs. Hahaha. What an old fool.

    • And he’s setting precedents that either he or future presidents will be able to use to turn that office into a dictatorship. Congress needs to totally revamp the system to make sure this kind of thing can’t ever happen again.

  20. Trump is a lying traitor. What else do we need to know?
