      I can’t disagree

      Usually madmen becoming leaders of powerful nations have a higher IQ than average… not so in America.

      Jaikee Berlin Neah, just Trump. He’s a self proclaimed genius. We all know he’s fcked up in the brain.

    • @Jaikee Berlin That is a common misconception. Politicians are not measured for their IQ in any way, shape or form. That is what politicians would like you to think though…

    So, elections can’t be held safely due to Covid, but it is safe to open schools ! Brilliant Trumpism !

  4. We the people have met the enemy and he lives in the White House.

  5. I stopped telling myself “it can’t get any worse”.

      @TigR 5hark You are so right he is insanely dangerous the good news is that the MILITARY is not supporting his fascist playbook…that is maybe are only hope…

    • Mary Phillips-Blackshear | August 4, 2020 at 9:26 AM | Reply

      Unfortunately that is the saddest comment I ever felt.

      @Dennis Moon Well said and the news need to not keep repeating it to my children and their friends 😅

    • Please someone tell me that they replaced the nuclear codes in the briefcase with coloring books and crayons.

    • Opi Nion – No kidding. If Trump doesn’t win I can see him letting loose like the psychopath he is.

  6. When Trump says “everyone knows” he means everyone one in his little circle.

    • Crush Everything | August 1, 2020 at 5:21 PM | Reply

      No, it means it’s something he heard from alt-right media and he wants us all to “believe him”.

    • “Everyone” in his head. He hasn’t got a split personality (A voice in his head) He’s got a Shattered personality (Hundreds of voices in his head)

    • Larry Williams | August 3, 2020 at 12:23 AM | Reply

      The ones in his little circle are often next in line for the chute that leads directly under the bus

  7. “It will be rigged” sniff sniff. He is on drugs take him out of office before he destroys us

  8. He’s almost ten points back in all polls, yet he thinks the election is rigged against him, trump is so desperate right now, and he’s going to be a lot worse the closer his end gets.

    • Because the polls are soooo accurate…….how quickly you forget about the polls in 2016……

    • VOTE BIG too Big to Rig! Vote trumpviris45 out!!

    • Darrell Smith | August 2, 2020 at 9:46 AM | Reply

      You can compare the Trump presidency to DR. Frankenstein’s creation of the monster they both started off with good intentions but they went South quick😱

    • Well:
      He is right!
      The polls is riged against him, but he’s the one who rigged them with his stupid antics and do nothing response to everything as president.
      Ppl know everything is his fault and nobody wants him as their leader.
      Ppl didn’t vote him in the office to be ostricized from their citizenship and human rights.
      Trump and his administration caused all this, so yes the voting system is riged and he rigged it.
      Phuc Donald Trump and his administration.

    When he loses he can finally be prosecuted for his crimes.

    • cindykford ford | August 3, 2020 at 8:18 AM | Reply

      That’s why he’s afraid and keeps speaking against mail in voting is a fruad so he can justify defunded the post office…he’s losing badly in the polls, and will be no longer president and that will leave him open to be arrested and prosecuted in New York for his corruption money laundering crimes.

    • Like Nixon was, sorry folks but sadly ex presidents appear to be above the law. Particularly when it would set a President.

    • Gerri Wright Ingerson | August 4, 2020 at 1:25 AM | Reply

      @Robin But he can’t be pardoned by any President for state crimes and Letia James the Attorney General of NY has stated her number one goal is to indict prosecute and imprison the entire Trump crime family. I hope she succeeds. Also a pardon from one president can be rescinded by another President Andrew Johnson’s pardons were rescinded by President Ulysses S Grant. So if Trump resigns on 1/19/21 so Pence can pardon him before Biden becomes President, Biden could turn right around and rescind that pardon. He could so the same for all Trump’s pardoned co conspirators….

    Trump will make a huge crisis in November. We should all be afraid of this maniac.

  11. Lee louis Bush | August 1, 2020 at 2:47 PM | Reply

    NOW the world know everything Trump touch dies,his business life is finish.

  12. Whenever Trump starts a statement with “everyone knows” you know he is about to lie again and again😂😂😂

    • Sallyanne Putter | August 2, 2020 at 12:37 AM | Reply

      When his mouth is moving, he’s lying.

    • I call BS… Politicians are the real liars and Trump exposed them. The media is the real liars too. Propaganda media swamp rats.

    • Gnirol Namlerf | August 2, 2020 at 5:50 AM | Reply

      @8ernity8 In case you didn’t notice, Donald John Trump has been a politician and used the media for propaganda his whole adult life. Open eyes. Use head for something besides a hatrack, as my father used to say…please. Then comment again. Thank you.

    • @8ernity8 : Kayleigh M promised from day one as press secretary that she would never “lie to the media and to the American people”!!! Then she promptly began to read massive lies from her script book of lies!!!😂😂😂. You might easily qualify as a future Trompisite Press Secretary. Your claim that ole Trump is not a liar is truly amazing. He lies and then lies about the lies he’s just told! Has the virus “just magically disappeared yet”???🤣🤣🤣

  13. Trump has a ” tell”. Anytime he’s doing something illegal, he accused other people of doing that exact same thing.

  15. Vote trump out of the White House and straight into the Big House.
    Orange will suit him perfectly.

  16. A0merica don’t let this president foul you with all this BS on voting.

  17. Trump is filled with so much hate and bigotry.

  18. Just like Hitler did, create chaos they offer a solution. And that’s exactly what Trump is doing

    Trump is out of control and desperate due to his ignorance, he’s got to go one way or another

  20. Cynthia Clayworth | August 2, 2020 at 3:09 PM | Reply

    This “president” and this administration are exhausting. It has got to end.

    • He exists in chaos. He has us in Chaos. It’s how he hides his total incompetence. Total chaos from minute to minute, hour by hour, day by day. It’s insanity.
