    TRUMP POPULIST:
    Make America Great Again!

    BIDEN REALIST
    : America was Great before Trump.
    Vote DEMOCRAT.

    • @REAL BLACKS KNOW THE TRUTH
      The economy continued t improve under Trump at about the same rate it had been improving under Obama.

    • @Jock Young unemployement lowering slowed during trump

    • Independent Voter | July 11, 2020 at 5:09 PM | Reply

      SinBae have you looked at unemployment numbers recently? 😂😂😂😂

    • @Independent Voter Still goes together with my statement :^) but I refer to the same timeline he refers to, aka pre covid, you can clearly see a slowing end of 2015 aka trump

    • Independent Voter well when democrat governors keep their states closed, what would you expect 🤷🏾‍♂️

  2. Can you say “quid pro quo”

  3. I DONT THINK THATS THE DONNY-VIRUS PLAN, He Was Thinking Put Them In The Tank And See How Many Walk Out.

    What you talking about Velshi. Trump would never pay out for Education.See Trump University.

    • Jim Battersbee | July 11, 2020 at 5:00 PM | Reply

      The Democrats and the Republicans had no problem recently agreeing on a 740 billion dollar military budget. The hypocrisy of America is eye-watering.

      Jim Battersbee teachers unions are a travesty and a joke! Ban the unions and mandate school choice, then education will boom and the indoctrination of our kids will cease

    • Strange Wayfaring Stranger | July 11, 2020 at 7:26 PM | Reply

      He’s obviously talking about life after trump.

      @YouRuse is A leftist org
      The USA is a “travesty and a joke”. Listen to yourself in the land of the free, “ban unions!!” hahahahahahaha, talk about ‘indoctrination’.

  10. Funny how The Trump Administration and Betsy Devos are concern about schools when they keep cutting funds every year.🥴

    • All they want is the very cheapest day care possible so that their parents are free to work. They would probably cut off public education at age 14 because they no longer need child car.

    • Alex Hamilton | July 11, 2020 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      Dittzx
      the States and cities don’t have taxes to pay for Education?

    • Their children probably go to private schools that, somehow, receive public funding; less funds for us and more for them, maybe?

    • DeVos makes her money from private schools. That’s the reason she wants them open.

  11. This is our chance as Americans to make many changes. Who doesn’t want that?

    • Jim Battersbee | July 11, 2020 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      Watch carefully, nothing will change, a few cosmetic changes, a bit of window dressing, maybe a return to a president who can actually string a sentence together, but essentially the basic barbarism and hypocrisy that is America will remain.
      Cheers

    Greatest investment is investing in children’s education. That was the reason why America was Great not so long ago.

      America has never been great. In 1944 America executed a 14 year old boy (of course he was black) for a crime it later turned out he didn’t commit.
      You executed a 14 year old child.
      Today you separate children from their parents and keep them in cages.
      America has always been unequalled in the world for it’s barbarism and hypocrisy however.

    • Richard McMasky | July 11, 2020 at 5:14 PM | Reply

      @Jim Battersbee America has never been great, it’s just that the rest of the world has *tended* to be worse than us.

    • Jim Battersbee | July 11, 2020 at 5:46 PM | Reply

      @Richard McMasky
      Nope. America has always *claimed* itself to be great. The rest of the world just isn’t so hypocritical. The US is the only country in the entire world with a *rising* maternal death rate and is ranked only 46th in world life expectancy rankings. People in Hong Kong and Japan outlive Americans by over 6 years.
      In the developed world, America has the worst inequality, and the worst gun violence.
      America is a fantasyland, it’s all flag waving, bible bashing, advertising, movies, television and marketing. It leads the world in hypocrisy and Covid 19 deaths.
      Cheers

    • @Jim Battersbee Sad, but true! 🤷🏻‍♂️🙈

  13. MSNBC: More Velshi and Joy Reid please.

  14. My son has asthma, there is ZERO chance I will send him to school. If he caught it he could die. No way! They cant assure his safety so not happening.

    • Steve’s Guitars | July 11, 2020 at 4:55 PM | Reply

      Keep those kids home until YOU know it’s safe. Don’t hurry. Protect and defend them.

    • Me too i’m keeping my son home he also Asthma, no way no how i would even consider that possibility.

      Covid 19 like all previous Corona viruses will be here forever. You’re fked. Cheers from Toronto

      good for you. I assume you do not work or if you do you do it at home? You never go out? You and your kid stay
      in your house? Because I know for a fact that no place can assure your safety. They never will.

    • @Alex Hamilton Because in your world, in your tiny little mind, sending kids to school is the same as going out wearing a mask, social distancing and observing all the safety measures? Ever hear of homeschooling? Why would people who have enough sense to not send their kids to school, never leave the house? and you do not know for a fact “that no place can assure anyone’s safety”. How could you? you would have to know everyone and their circumstances. My goodness! you do talk a lot of tosh!

  15. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO TAKE MONEY FROM THE OVERBLOATED DEFENSE BUDGET AND PUT IN OUR SCHOOLS!

      Hahahahahaha, it’s the USA, ain’t gonna happen! Keep the people dumb is the motto.

      yes and after that you can learn, Russian, Chinese, or Persian. Study Muslim. I have a question. You do know that States and local Governments
      have taxes?

    • Bryce Brogan | July 11, 2020 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      I’d be happy if they took the subsidies and grants from the cruise line industry and gave it to the schools.

    • Jim Battersbee | July 11, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

      @Bryce Brogan
      Don’t forget the endless corporate bailouts and the agriculture subsidies.

      claim we need to educate our children
      Alex Hamilton’s reply: raise State and local taxes, get rid of the teachers unions, raise the pay for good teachers and fire the bad.
      Put curriculum and control there of in the hands of the parents.

    • Bryce Brogan | July 11, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

      @foreigner fan If they can get it past the Republican-controlled Senate (i.e., the Grim Reaper Mitch McConnell).

    • foreigner fan | July 11, 2020 at 10:05 PM | Reply

      @Bryce Brogan Democrats don’t give a sht about education. Obama was as lousy as Bush. And he was horrendous. Trumps better than both. Cheers

  17. School’s out for summer
    School’s out forever
    School’s been blown to pieces No more pencils
    No more books
    No more teacher’s
    Dirty looks
    Well, we got no class
    And we got no principals
    We ain’t got no intelligence
    We can’t even think of a word that rhymesSchool’s out for summer
    School’s out forever
    School’s been blown to pieces No more pencils
    No more books
    No more teacher’s
    Dirty looks Out for summer
    Out till fall
    We might not come
    Back at all

  18. Trump has managed to bring back the 1918 Pandemic, the 1929 Depression and the 1968 Race Riots all at the same time.
    You really want him making decisions on your children’s health?

    • A one man triple crown winner!!!

    • Come on, he’s not a shipping clerk you know. Lmfao

    • toddburress68 | July 11, 2020 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      Is it really Trump or are the Democrats behind it. Seems like they were the biggest racist in the past and it seems like they got all the money from these recent race riots and it seems like no one wants to say where the slaves came from which was the African brothers sold them into slavery which was probably better than just chopping their heads off but still. So I’m saying sure seems like it’s the Democrats behind all the chaos and that’s pretty obvious where is it all happens in Democratic cities

    • ​@toddburress68 I was going to reply, but there is no point: you obviously cannot put two and two together without making five.

  19. The only thing Betsy Duvos is missing is the witch’s broom

    • …and the intelligence.

    • THE MOST VILE CORRUPT MEMBER OF THIS AWFUL REGIME.
      SHE HAS DONE SO MUCH DAMAGE AND THAT INCLUDES TO CHILDREN TOO.
      SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED ASAP.
      SCHOOLS SHOULD NOT BE RE-OPENED. CHILDREN DO NOT NEED TO
      BE AT RISK JUST BECAUSE THESE TWO (TRUMP & DEVOS) ENTITLED JERKS THINK SO.

    • Mike, that’s the best you have up in that little brain?
      Make a juvenial comment about a person doing her job? Care to expand your brain with facts and common sense?
      Oh, you’re a member of the Teachers Union?
