    Sabotaging the US postal service to suppress votes was just the tip of the iceberg in Trump’s quest to rig the elections.

    • @Angelika Bertrand trump is Putin’s tool or puppet and I’m sure that there is a collaboration between Putin and Trump.

    • yeshttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8

    • Call Trump’s sabotaging of USPS what it is: FASCISM. One of the tactics used by Fascists is Voter Suppression.

    • @Julie B And it is illegal to temper with mail or election, so why trump isn’t charged already by authorities ? And all his cronies ?

      @Enko Viewer perhaps you would see better for yourself if you pulled the propaganda wool out of your eyes. To someone as biased as you from the outset solid proof would be ignored. This isn’t my first rodeo – any source of proof would rapidly be removed from the web post haste after being pointed out. Why must you ask for something you don’t want to acknowledge? If you had an eye for truth you would have noticed that Russia is a chosen enemy for increasing your military budget etc. etc…

  2. Bad news: Trump wants to be a dictator
    Good news: He’s too dumb

      Breaking News AP: Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation ( FBI) have confirmed Tuesday that Hunter Biden’s Laptop is his and not part of a Russian Intelligence Disinformation operation. Biden Campaign has not deny the authenticity of the Hunter Biden Emails. FBI has confirmed they are in possession of Hunter Biden’s Laptop.

      @look whats happening now You should listen to a real dictator, and then say POTUS wants to be one..

    • @delonix regia I come from Venezuela , I know how it started. Chavez started dosing the same things Trump did. This is Venezuela it it’s beginnings around 2001-2003

    • and still dangerous, VOTE Landslide to send a very clear message!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lUO9s9t4Vw

      Barr, McConnell & co. are not, though.

  3. I put my ballot in a drop box. Donnie and his traitors can cram it.

    • Travis Pomeroy | October 21, 2020 at 7:41 AM | Reply

      Tell that to the people who had their drop box sat on fire the other day. You can’t trust anything for a proper vote unless you can do it in person. It’s gotten so sad and petty these days that you can’t trust the USPS or lock ballot boxes, especially not under surveillance. We need police to sit at each box across the country for the next 2 weeks.

    • There were local police watching our drop box 🙂

    • @Dee Jones some people have to travel 40 miles to a drop box and can’t travel that far.

    • yeshttps://youtu.be/zFJ2AN_CZH8

    • @vincent james Understood but, how about people in towns/communities doing organized car pools.
      My point is I rather go out of my way for one day to vote than endure another 4 years of someone I not want for a President. The disappointing part for me are Dems leaders whinning instead of helping people get around the obstacles.

  4. Last Week a Trump Supporter was
    Busted for Destroying Mail. This is
    how Trump Plans to Derail Elections…..☝

  5. Geez I hope this madness is over soon. It’s worrisome to think when trump loses the election, Trump will still be around for 60 days in the White House right?? God only knows what Trump will be doing during that time.

    • @Tweety Bird
      You have the same fear that I have. Trump loses, and is a Lame Duck President for 60 days…..that does not give me comfort at all.
      Trump is a deranged, narcissist, sociopath. He is extremely vindictive as we all know.
      I could literally see him doing any one of these 3 things…
      1) Start a war or international conflict, then say he has to stay in office and declare a national emergency
      2) Incite violence from the whackjob right extremists. Q Anon, MAGA, Militia, etc.
      3) Steal the election, if in fact, we end up having to let State Legislature decide in 4-5 key swing states, who wins the state.

    • @Dre-Day 1127 I have the same fears. Worse would be if he wins & another 4 years of this maniac. He’s even said he would run for a 3rd term! Either way, I believe we have troubled times ahead of us. I hope we all stand united & against whatever lies ahead…we don’t have a choice if America ever is to stand for integrity again.

    • @Jean McGinnis
      Things are going to be rough after the election either way. But nothing can be worse than 4 more years of @sshole.
      But we have to heal, and unite, and talk about why we are so divided. WE have to fix this. Nobody is coming into America to do it for us, WE have to fix this mess.

    • Taking drugs and selling off public lands for his own profit.

    Dejoy is definitely a top 5 on the Biden-Harris to be dealt with list.

  7. Nothing is shocking with this administration anymore. Donald Trump is trying his best to become a full on authoritarian & we need to stop him. Deliver your absentee ballots to your precinct yourself. We can’t trust the USPS as long as Dejoy is in charge.

    • @Irma Vera ~ Really? What about the *illegal* ballot boxes the GOP is placing around the state? And they intend to break the law further by adding more. Have you let your state representatives know how you feel about that? #VoteBLUE2020 _all the way down._

    • @William H Music 2020 ~ In your eye.

      @my2cents2u William is a bot btw.. there are a surprising amount really.. I only know the leftist ones.. I’m sure there are right wing ones too…. sweet giving souls.

    This has never been done before. What does PMG Louis DeJoy and DJT have planned for the next two weeks? Those who think others have conspiracies usually have their own.

    • @Dre-Day 1127 no not crazy… it’s just the trump patrol MAGA…

    • @Jazz Haze
      Those people are literally capable of anything.

    • VirAmicusSpaceTime | October 21, 2020 at 7:16 PM | Reply

      @Dre-Day 1127 this has started already. My best friend lives in Los Angeles and it happened near him in one of the boxes which is not protected outside and no cameras.

      Luckily there had been a pick up earlier so there were only a few ballots inside.

      Again if you abled bodied and you have been running around to stores and the beach – go vote in person no matter what.

      Those who can’t due to age or immuno or other sensitive pathogens should not but…we cannot let ANY small chance of mail in ballots hamper this election.

      People have know for months this man will do anything why some would still vote by mail when they can easily go vote in person I do not understand esp if you are voting Blue.

      And this is one of them no one could foresee but not surprising.

      And she says it seems to be election tampering…no IT IS…
      This should seriously not be allowed at all.

    • @VirAmicusSpaceTime
      Well said!
      Let others know about what happened to your friend in L.A.
      I really don’t see any problems at all in Chicago where I’m from. But I feel for ANY American that feels their voice, and vote is being suppressed!

      Lastly, I believe the early voting, shattering any previous early voting records, is very bad news for Trump, and his Senators. The vast majority of the American public, is speaking Truth to Power!
      Blue Wave!

    • Virginia Taylor | October 21, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      @VirAmicusSpaceTime Took my ABSENTEE BALLOT to the ELECTION CLERK’S office last Friday but our state doesn’t allow counting to start until Election day. Many election clerk’s requested that rule be changed but the predominately Republican State legislature voted that down as they are still seething about the democratic election wave in 2018 for governor and other upper political offices.

  9. this isn’t crazy, it’s America and you reap what you sow. Vote Biden 2020 to start clean up!!

  10. VOTE🇺🇸VOTE🇺🇸VOTE🇺🇸


  11. Expect millions of ballots to disappear, stolen by right wing nut jobs who’ll blame it on the Dems.. Expect Biden votes to be uncounted or rejected. Track your vote!!

    • @Jason Bourne Voter Fraud is Fraud committed BY the Voter; not Against the Voter. This is Voter Suppression or Voter Interference.
      Nothing Hypocritical about being able to tell the difference.
      Only the Right think BY and AGAINST are the same thing just because Voting is concerned. But then again, Victim Blaming is a popular habit by the Right when another issue is concerned as well.

    • @HoshiReed cool man

    • Doug Emhoff love’s sloppy Joe seconds.😂😂😝😝😝😜😳

    • Go in and vote or use drop boxes. Don’t use the postal service to vote.

    • @Jason Bourne Isn’t it more hypocritical to pull officers off the street after decrying mail ballots as being fraudulent? Like shouldn’t gop be *helping* the USPS be safer rather than further crippling it?

    Trumps is breaking federal law, tampering with the mail.
    No one, including the President should be above the law.

    Everything about Trump ruins and kills american everything. The official anti american president

  14. USA is now The Third world country! Corruption to it’s core!!!!!!

  15. John Te Whauwhau | October 21, 2020 at 4:10 AM | Reply

    Trump, trying hard to steal this election, anyway he can. Not even hiding his corruption, to win re-election. Trying to get his opponent Biden in jail, for what no one knows. Looking at every avenue to win this election. Get out and vote in person, don’t let this crook steal this election.

  16. Trump’s psycho’s will take up arms and occupy the streets when he loses election. Time to pick a side. I know which side I’m on.

  17. Jonathan Bester | October 21, 2020 at 4:12 AM | Reply

    According to the KKK this is all fake news… lol… So the logical conclusion is………. They want you to ignore this!!! Keep the Postal Service in the news. Put pressure on Congress to reverse these changes. Do not let the Voter Suppression War go unchallenged

  18. Sabotaging the USPS has been a disservice to the American people. This administration has tried to destroy our institutions, constitution and our democracy.

    • @Hai Coai <---> BOT ..delete immediately. Don’t click on link!!!!!!!


    • @COOKIE CAT How many M E D S do you take?


    • @COOKIE CAT How many???

  19. The United States Postal Service belongs to the people. This corrupt administration is trying to treat the postal service like they are Trump’s taxes…meaning they don’t want the American people to see what’s going on.

  20. It’s only going to get worse. This guy is coming apart at the seams, because he knows what’s going to happen at the end of his joy ride. I’m pretty sure he’s not sleeping at night. Oh man, the thoughts of going to prison are driving these insane ideas of messing with the election, it’s like he keeps trying to rewrite a bad script, and the plot backfires. What was the last one? Oh yeah, “Uncle Rudy’s GRU Computer Repair Service”. The bad part is, we’re getting to that annoying part of almost every bad infomercial, that “But wait! There’s more!”
