  1. People need to get off FB & Twitter and live in the real world.

    The dead giveaway is when the tweet begins with “As a black American”. Lol😂😂😂

  3. this was the most important MSNBC segment of the day. thanks Ali Velshi and your guests for great reportage

  4. I am glad you are reporting this Velshi.

    • Nobody is talking about the swarm of pro conservative bots that plague the YouTube comments in trending news and its objectively a worse problem here than Twitter.

    People, we have all experienced what has happened over these past 6 months. Do not let fairytales that you hear on TV or read on social media let your forget what we KNOW.
    We KNOW it’s time for Trump to GO.

  6. 70 tweets in one day???
    Thats all trump* knows how to do…that and golf and he’s not good at either

    Let’s put integrity, empathy, and honesty back in the White House. Cause not ONE is currently there now.

    The same thing is happening in Facebook with fake “Latino” accounts!!!

  9. Pro Tip: If someone leads with “As a lifelong Democrat voter who is black….” then says they’re voting for Trump, it’s a troll. Trump is losing support by the day. Biden will be the next POTUS.

    Yep, we see this all over YouTube as well. What are you doing about it YouTube? Twitter is under the microscope, why aren’t you?

    I know, YouTube is doing the same thing. I just got through exposing one.

    If the vote meant nothing, they wouldn’t try to stop people from casting it.

    Bots on YouTube as well in the comments

  14. Seldom in the last 100 years have we watched a democracy disintegrate like this, Communist countries yes! Democracies no!

    If everyone stopped using Facebook and deleted it from their life, the world would be a better place!

  16. Civil unrest, riots in the street, militias policing – trumps America

    Herschel Walker was impersonating a Black American!

  18. Why do we keep pretending we’re worried about Biden’s mental state when Trump parades his unfit mind constantly?
    This is Trump saying exactly what he would do with another four years:

    “But so I think, I think it would be, I think it would be very, very, I think we’d have a very, very solid, we would continue what we’re doing, we’d solidify what we’ve done, and we have other things on our plate that we want to get done”

    This is real. Look it up.

  19. They will go as far as sending out text saying “don’t bother voteing today” early returns say Trump is loosing and can’t catch Biden.

  20. It is only people without ethical standards will vote for Trump, party or not.
