    Trump doesn’t care about America or all people…he is only for himself

  2. Why can’t people just be themselves without others harming them ?

    • The short answer is that humans are flawed. Even the trans woman in this video has done SOMETHING f***ed up to someone. No one is immune. It’s just that some people get it much worse than others.

      But the truth is that it’s not something we’re likely to erase from society. Why? Because kids are mean. And think about all of the people that carry pain from childhood into adulthood.

      It is the nature of some to hurt others, tragically we cannot deny them there natural selves anymore than anyone else.

      @Ron Shepard yeah you do. Couples and families walk proudly all the time. Only ones that should hide are people who are ashamed of themselves, everyone else, head up!

      @Paul Reveres Horse LIBERTY people who are on Medicare now get to choose their own doctor.

    • @shelovestowander I know President Trump is pushing for surprice medical bill in his effor to lower the cost and be more transparent, he has already try to lower the prices by making companies to charge the same to all countries so we don’t subsidize other countries, while they offer less price to other countries we pay extra , so I see he is try to push for changes.

      @Laura Lafauve yea something tells me I’m a bit older then you are too. Last March was my 32nd anniversary of my 30th birthday. Colourful Colorado you say (note the spelling on colourful) near the mountians, we have a mountian it’s called the niagara escarpment , people from Vancouver laugh at us for calling it the mountian, to them it’s just a big hill!

    • @Laura Lafauve but the doctor still on charge, and Trump have the right to made his own healthcare decision, with his doctor supervision. Nothing wrong with it.

    • Laura Lafauve | June 14, 2020 at 10:38 PM | Reply

      @Markus Stewart sounds like we’re close in age, actually. Although, people keep insisting I’m in my 20s in these comments. Some of them flat out refuse to believe I’m not a youngster! I guess my age inside shows!

    Here we see Donald Trump again catering to his base of evangelical “Christians”, a group defined totally by hate.

    Is Trump trying to get all of America to protest against him?

    • Nobody cares about this but leftist and people who complain about everything Trump does.

    Trump wants to erase anything that is related to Obama first then shows he is biased against gays

    Nosferatu Miller specifically picked the date ss an extra ” Haha , Haha you’re screwed ” moment.

    • Nope, it is just a distraction. It means he’s really getting ready to do something else or something detrimental is coming out and everyone will be focused on the issue at hand and won’t notice the other truly awful and unfixable issue that he doesn’t want seen.

    • Robert Lavelle | June 13, 2020 at 5:35 PM | Reply

      @Mr_R N It conveniently serves both purposes.

    • Can’t wait for the real clean-up to begin and dumbasses wedged on an orange rocket to Mars.

      I’m guessing it is to help the Trumpets get over not holding their RACE rally on Juneteenth.

  8. Don’t worry folks. Soon there will be more equality in Trump’s healthcare. No one will be covered…

    Kindness, empathy, respect, love.
    Its easy.

  10. The only people he has left to call on is his Evangelists. He’s going to lose this race and he’s desperate. Please vote in 2020.

  11. Usually when Dinald starts randomly going to oppress random minority groups he’s seeing some bad numbers from his base and he panicked

    • @Mathy Don Trump is not getting any money he’s working for free for the USA, his hotels are giving to treasury their profits , what rlse do you want his blood?

    • @Mathy Don I’m latina and I’m well inform about the pictures we saw , where the children were in cages, those pictures where taken in times of the Obama administration, Trump have change them by returning the families back to Mexico while they wait for their turn for a judge to see their case, so they stay together.

    • Milagros B. Trump receive 500million from the Communist Party’s bank as an “investment” in a hotel that was never built. Google it, Dinald makes May more from selling his office than the lousy 400k salary

    • @Mathy Don so I don’t mind if China donates 1.5 billions to Trump’s son, as long as President Trump do his job,in putting USA first .

    • Milagros B. Donald allowed 40,000 infected Chinese into the country after signing a fake ban and then has only worked to help the virus spread in order the help Chinese Communist Party so that’s why the Constitution says the president can not accept payments of any kind from foreign governments,

      And now its even less if Trump is allowed to do this…he is just like Hitler.Starts small with gays/lesbian’s and trans people then mkves on minority’s and next will come non Christians.

      Not really. Sounds about right 😂

    • @Zeel FarshmekThose fanatics that support him aren’t Christians, but I get your point.

  14. Ok He is using these dates on purpose . The Oklahoma on that he finally changed .. this one .. and the one where they are holding their convention . These days had to be chosen !

    • Even if Trump himself did not come up with them (quite likely, as he really ISN’T that bright), Miller WOULD. And that one, however evil he is, is NOT stupid. He is just the modern-day JosephGoebbels, a very intelligent, but thoroughly evil, man. Now, once he explained the reasoning to the slimeball in the Oval Office, I have no doubt he would have clapped his little hands in joy… but I doubt he had the cohesive thought to come up with it on his own.

    • Constituent A | June 14, 2020 at 12:46 AM | Reply

      They are intentionally selected, but you give president plague too much credit here. This is undoubtedly the machination of Stephen Miller.

    • Leeanne Bishop pretty boys? Have you seen a lot of Trump supporters . Literal inbreds. Majority of his supporters look inbred and are overweight, idk what’s pretty about that

    • Oh I never meant Trump did it on his own because I knew miller was involved however Trump made the decision because even Miller can’t tell Trump what to do . He can only guide him along . It really doesn’t take much because Miller has the brain & both of them racist & compatible .

    • Cinder Boy I’m sure she doesn’t mean that literally

  15. I think everyone should have access to healthcare irrespective of gender orientation. . Should be basic human right

    • @panthera50 me???you mean trump

    • Ali DW Neither is forcing someone to be your doctor for free.

    • caseyd321 I have health insurance as part of my work compensation. You don’t pay anything for my health benefits, why do you think you do? Even if your talking about Medicare for people who get it….you pay into that when you work. I never understood people that act like somehow they are paying for transgender people to have medical treatment.

    • Nino Almighty | June 14, 2020 at 1:01 PM | Reply

      Anyone can and I do have health care. Tax payers just aren’t paying for your form of crazy.

    • Nino Almighty So I’m assuming your replying to me. If you are saying being transgender is crazy…then your opinion is different than the vast majority of the medical and scientific communities as well as the latest DSM. If you are saying that people aren’t paying for my health care with their taxes…..I agree, they aren’t and never have. So you really have absolutely nothing to complain about. In fact….I probably pay more in taxes than you do.

  16. Disgusting though the situation may be, this is far from what I’d call “surprising” in any way. Today it’s this, a day or 2 ago it was the bit about hunting in Alaska, tomorrow, the day after, etc.. it’s just going to keep escalating. These things are meant to be as divisive and diversionary as possible. The orange moron wants as much chaos and panic as possible. If anybody is expecting things co calm, don’t. If anybody is expecting a peaceful transition come election time, definitely don’t.

    • I  have a feeling he asks Barr to announce Election void if Biden wins on some cook up charges against Biden and then declare martial law saying it is justified to preserve law and order becos of the impending protests by democrats over the coup d’état

  17. Trump be sitting at his desk like: “iT hAs NoThiNg tO dO wiTh dEsCriMiNAtiON”

      Its about protecting religious freedom.

    • BKSTANDARD88 It’s not like their religious freedom is being threatened, they have had the freedom to practice and believe whatever they want for a long time now but some people are fascists and want to take rights away from other people just because they don’t approve of their lifestyle. It’s sickening.

    • @BKSTANDARD88 Religious freedom has no basis when it comes to legally being able to discriminate against others.

    • Ralph Bernhard | June 14, 2020 at 10:18 AM | Reply

      The strategy Trump uses is called “Divide and rule”.
      The objective is to to have the people squabble and fight each other so that him and his 1% buddies can raid the USA’s wealth, and strip it bare to the bone like the vultures they are….

    • Ralph Bernhard Your right, try getting his zealots to believe it. They believe he is looking out for their interests and cements his hold by attacking the marginalized and holding up bibles he has never read…..like most of his base.
