  1. Faith, not fear. Hope, not hate. Love, not lies. Biden, not trump.

    We don’t want to overthrow the government, we just want to oust the trump administration.

  3. Your nutjob cleared Lafayette square, filled with peaceful protesters, to hold up a Bible upside down for a photo op.

    Any idea how ridiculous this makes the US look around the world? 🤔

  4. Everyone in the Trump administration should be charged with Treason !

    People that are okay with a person soliciting Russia for funds to run for President of the USA are insane.

    Sedition? this administration? I proudly stand “guilty” as charged!


  7. If the federal officials were looking for a weapon to make people feel as if their skin was burning, they could have just borrowed one of Trumps sun lamps 🤣



    • Carol what do you mean even Canada and Cuba?? Both countries have a form of universal health care and more importantly people who are reasonable enough to understand that wearing a mask saves lives. Masks are NOT a political statement!

    • Carol trump knew it hit minorities and elderly disproportionately. He wants to do away with social security. For god sakes, he stopped his own nephews medical coverage after his father died. This man cares for one person DJT🙏🏼💙💙🌊🇺🇸

  9. Barr thinks he is a politician instead of a public servant, he has a blown-up ego like his boss.

    • Barr lies as easily as Trump. His lies about the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation being from the mostly proven true Steele Dossier and his four page summary of lies about the Mueller Report are reason enough for the House to call his fat butt in an explain why he is lying and misdirecting to aid the corrupt POS Trump.

    • & a blown up stomach too… May God save innocent Americans..

  10. Heat rays on citizens because:
    We’re 1930s Germany since 2016.

  11. Charge those guys with sedition but don’t charge the “protestors” that were supporting Confederate soldiers who were actual seditious. Welcome to the twilight zone!

  12. *Trump is the President of CRIMES AND CHAOS*

  13. The next world war will be America vs … … America.

  14. Use our own military against American people that’s not right.

  15. I remember trump saying they had “ominous” weapons ready for use months ago. He said it to frighten off would be protesters. Even the peaceful protests.

  16. One of these guys said that protesters were violent, and warned over a “megaphone speaker” to “move back,” yet this National Guard Major said “no such speaking device was present, and there was no violence.” Somebody lied to Congress!!!

  17. Sounds like they’re aiming for a Tianimen square style action; just deplorable

  18. Sedition: the act of overthrowing a government
    Donnie: I want to serve three terms

    They rushed the president to safety when they should’ve just kicked him out the front door🤣🤣🤣

    • We definitely need to stop providing Secret Service protection for life to former presidents. Waste of the taxpayers’ money.

  20. How can anyone not see that Trump is trying to install himself as a dictator???
