  1. It’s unbelievable that you still have to convince America what America stands for . The whole world knows it .

      @d2.r76.421 presumably you’ve seen the full video of Mayor Ted Wheeler surrounded by a hostile mob looking terrified as they hurled abuse at him?

    • @Dog Poo Fairy Heard about it, decided it was nothing. meh

    • The rioters you promote and protect have now killed over 100 innocent people since the start of this more than the police in 2019 and 2020 combined you msnbc are complicit and truly fakenews.

    • @fsf dsfa The protesters you don’t want to protect haven’t killed anyone, how about you make a distinction?

    • Dog Poo Fairy | July 26, 2020 at 4:53 PM | Reply

      fsf dsfa never mind, these geniuses don’t need the police, if they get attacked or robbed they can call Antifa who will be around straight away and blow their whistles and chant a bit.

  2. Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🤕

    I see the problem now, why red states have poor economy!

    • @Randy Welsh Hmm I dunno… fox news doesnt have a habit of getting caught lying, like cnn, msnbc etc, have multiple times. Those are the real fake news. You are too far gone to be convinced of these facts.. Good luck.

    • @Anonymous one Not sure what you’re talking about. I’m an Independent and there is no Presidential candidate in my state. Maybe you ought to take that cognitive test Trump took recently.

    • @Tera Tokomi TERRY, the right weinie troll Thanks!

    • The rioters you promote and protect have now killed over 100 innocent people since the start of this more than the police in 2019 and 2020 combined you msnbc are complicit and truly fakenews.

    • @fsf dsfa Folks! This is a perfect example of the ignorance right wing media breeds Bet, he doesn’t know or is it a she this month? That right wing Boogaloo Boys killed 2 cops in California

    Funny how Trump is now trying to blame the spread of the virus on the protests!!

    Wasn’t he the one encouraging Republicans to protest against the lockdown back in April?

    • GreenIdLady 1 | July 26, 2020 at 12:32 AM | Reply

      @Real Deal Most of the states – I believe 41 – have some kind of requirement for facemasks to be worn in public. If both people are wearing masks, the transmission rate is very low, even if one person is infectious. That doesn’t hold true if only one person is wearing a mask. The virus is transmitted through the air and not just directly from one person to another. Small viral particles can linger in the air for at least 3 hours after someone without a mask on exhales. Even an N95 mask only offers 95% protection against inhaling these small particles. The US is a very dangerous place right now, and the only way to lower the danger is for everyone to take this virus seriously and start wearing a mask when they are in public.

    • @Football Nerd What hypocrisy?

    • Football Nerd | July 26, 2020 at 2:47 PM | Reply

      @Tera Tokomi Seriously? You don’t see the hypocrisy of encouraging Republicans to protest against the lockdown in April, yet blaming democratic protesters in June for the spread of the virus?

    • The rioters you promote and protect have now killed over 100 innocent people since the start of this more than the police in 2019 and 2020 combined you msnbc are complicit and truly fakenews.

    • @fsf dsfa Stop replying to the wrong people.

  4. 2nd Admendment was made for times like this. Where are the proud boys? At home in there parents basements.

    • From the comments I’ve read they are backing the ATF’s efforts to reduce gun crime. I think they are confused by their Dear Leader.

    • One lesson to be learned from fascism is that it’s initial supporters mistakenly think that their common ground issues (mostly based on fear and hate) will not put them under the jack boots of those same fascists.

      Fascists find conservatives to be useful tools to help them gain power but as the Lincoln Project and others can attest, the fascists (Trumpists) have gone far away from anything resembling actual conservatism.

      The anti-government militias might delude themselves that they are not going to be stomped on at a later date but history has proven they are on the list unless they put on the jack boots and fall in line; many of them already have but this just indicates they were never actually patriots in the first place.

      We have one shot to stop this in November but that appears to be dissipating as the Trumpists realize they may not win the election and so must rig it, steal it or in some way hijack it to their advantage.

    The troops in the streets is both camouflage for the real crimes happening by this administration and a signal to the base

    • @joris suffurt I look forward to seeing Trump win again in landslide. Americans reject the communist Democrats.

    • @KentBalzer Trump will lose easily, as currently he’s still letting a virus run rampant. If he pushes schools to open you’ll have dead kids and even more disruptions to parents lives when they have to stay home with Covid positive kids for 2 weeks. Not to mention the flu season will be picking up right at election time, and the states that don’t have mail in voting will be a life or death choice for Trumps core of senior voters.

    It’s like watching Kent State all over again how low has this President gone.

    • trump slithers lower than snakes. He’s a traitor to the United States of America.
      November

    • Donald didn’t have to go too low. He was already among the lowest. It’s the Country being informed and guided by elements of white supremacy, it’s the country that’s been brought very low. Hopefully not to oin of no return. For the sake of the country.

    • MSM fueling the UNREST in America, so pathetic! The marxist anarchists pretending to be “peaceful protesters” need to be jailed with No bail, to get some civil order in America again. These are not small examples after 60 days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtloBs-ikhA

      News flash….Americans don’t like terrorists rioters and communists like ANTIFA.

    Protesting peacefully is 100% American, Red White and Blue… I support the protesters and hope that we can all work together to correct the part of the justice system that has no place in our society…

      Satan himself is setting up all this chaos, so the Antichrist can pretend to set up a false peace and a false economic boom. “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by PEACE he shall DESTROY many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes: but he shall be broken without hand” (Daniel 8:25, KJV).
      The Antichrist shall set up the Fifth Temple in Jerusalem, but he is a false Christ: A) His Temple will not match the dimensions given in Ezekiel 40 (KJV); and B) The Antichrist will allow Roman Catholicism to exist…temporarily. By the time the Lord Jesus Christ returns, Rome shall have been totally destroyed (Revelation 17-18, KJV).

  9. Pluck a chicken one feather at a time, nobody will notice’ – Mussolini on making a dictatorship out of a democracy
    ‘I think it’s very important for us to make clear that Trump has over-plucked’ – Madeline Albright

    • He’s a goddamned fascist mother plucker

    • Wise and true… sociopathic liar easily does that and it appears, people of the USA became Trump’s toys. Children are good at manipulating toys because they are curious and feel satisfaction in their interests. In the president’s case, he has clear psycho-neurotic traits and no satisfaction.

      @jollyandwaylo yup 🙂 the term “troops” here is misleading, these aren’t “troops” they are various law enforcement personnel. When it comes to the overthrow of dictators to replace with a democracy, the police/law enforcement will almost universally side with the dictator, but the military are the swing vote. If the protests remain non-violent, like these ones have, then the military will generally choose to respond to violence from the dictator’s employees by turning on the dictator & standing beside the people & protecting them …. & so the power shifts & the people take control of the country

    • @Truth 90 don’t forget ALL the Campaign stays and countries like Saudi Arabia taking up a whole floor at a tRump hotel, which at the time was struggling to turn a profit, much like his other businesses…take Turnberry for example, he told the US Ambassador to the UK to get the British Open moved to Turnberry as it was losing millions…the man is a criminal, plain and simple, hopefully he will be in an Orange Jumpsuit to match his Orange Face Paint
