  1. People who have been around 45 want to talk about it because they’re all members of a survivor’s group.

    1. @Sophie Katt- so, you really don’t care that you repeat the leftist propaganda even when you’re caught doing it?

    2. Not really. They’re all just greedy cowards that want to make a buck without ever disclosing that they aided and abetted a despicable, corrupt person as he tried to ruin Democracy for his own selfish ego.

    3. @Scott Harrison “make up crap because you idiots will believe it!!!”
      Yes, that is Trump in a nutshell

  2. Can you imagine that crusted tangerine on the witness stand under cross examination? It will probably never happen but the mere thought is delicious!

    1. *He’s too old and fat to pull off a Lana Turner performance! (Sorry to the younger viewers that may not get the reference!)*

  3. “At least two Walter Reed doctors who refused to sign nondisclosure agreements last year were not permitted to be involved in Trump’s care.”

  4. Thankfully, Trump doesn’t have many years left, and then he’ll be nothing but a page in the history books…and history is going to be very, VERY unkind to the name Trump.

    1. So what? When you are walking off with the loot, why care about what the history books will say fifty years later?
      Trump was the syndrome and an accelerant of the problem, not the problem. Pretending that the problem is solved because he lost the election is very dangerous. Fox Not-At-All-News is still there. Millions of US americans who get their reality from Fox are still there. The SC judges Trump appointed are still there. The belief that patriotism means going into a melt-down whenever ones nations’ actions are being questioned is still there.
      Most of the senators who kow-towed to Trump are still there.
      Lobbyists are still there.
      And I suspect that when Trump keels over, somebody else – maybe a relative of his (his favorite son seems to be a good candidate), maybe just a kindred evil spirit – will quickly fill the hole he leaves behind.

  5. PARANOID in final days ??? HE was paranoid through the whole 4 year’s …. someone was always out to get him and yet I don’t believe he ever spoke of the PM of Iran placing a bounty on him !!!!

  6. A California hotel booted an ‘America First’ event when it found out Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene were the featured speakers

    1. Musta been nearer south California; cause up in nor CA they still don’t wear masks and and sell # 45 T shirts,hats…..

    1. maybe it was his enormous rallies as compared to the dismal showings of ‘most votes eve’r Biden, that got him that big head, lol

  7. Trump is about as far from a “stable genius” as you can be without having to be locked up to ensure your own safety from your actions

    1. Trump needs to be locked up to keep from destroying America whether he is in the WH or out. He continually destroys to this day. He has a whole militia still following him.

  8. the “I was just following orders” defense didn’t work too well for the Nazis at the Nuremberg Trials.

    1. @James Timlin. Didn’t work too very well for those complicit at Abu Ghraib, or Me Lai, either.

      Or Catholic Diocese, either.
      “I was just doing my job, covering up the abuse and the violence and the graft and the corruption”, nope, nope, nope.

      Doesn’t work that way.

    1. @Bill G again, not true..where is the “evidence” showing it was a ‘Dem stunt’ when Dump teargassed protesters??

    2. @Bill G just coz your authoritarian wannabe demonised the msm, doesn’t mean accrual footage of what happened in reality is not real!! Mostly they just report what happens ss in that case.
      Stump hated being called out is all.
      And yet you believe any old BS on bull crap opinion shows that don’t even meet journalistic standards to allow them to be called news. Or more likely, crazy ranting right wing radio…. Good one.
      On you to provide evidence of your ridiculous claims. Waiting….

    3. @Bill G one more thing – that sh1t you say about repeating lies enough til they’re believed ?!? I have no idea why Sump has started saying that, as the world already knew that’s been his own stated, admitted MO for years…. He used to say it all the time about himself, and it’s in his own books, where he again admitted that’s how he plays….
      Hilarious you just spout his bs like a good little pawn

    4. @Bill G 40 indictments on who ?? Well over 40- how about you Google it, you’ll learn facts for the first time. Challenge yourself….

    5. @Bill G You Clowns give Democrats too much credit, as if the democrats were so almighty and powerful that they can control what Trump does and they had total control of the election systems all over the country in both Democrat and Republican states to cheat the Orange Goblin out of the election, stop thinking so highly of democrats and get real you silly Goof.

    1. @Brian warshow Well, given that he’s either aimlessly wandering down shakedown street or goin’ down the road feeling bad after losing and being indicted, he’ll probably just try to take his rings and four bucks in change.

    2. @I’m not that Dave He’s back to steering his Ship of Fools and waving that flag, eh? Ha!

    3. @Brian warshow You know it! But, his fools are blind to the fact that there is no help on the way for their big boss man 😉

  9. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes accepted as truth.”
    Josef Goebbels, Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda.

  10. There is a dimension totally missed here: trump’s tenure was thanks to the Russian mob and Russian underground services. His lunacy has been masterfully used by Kremlin operatives. What he’ll do next depends on Vladimir Putin in the first place

    1. See the Guardian article of 15 July on the Kremlin Papers, for confirmation of Russian interference and manipulation on Tr**’s behalf.

    1. @Scott Harrison Does having a timely and appropriate sense of humor make me insane?

    2. @Scott Harrison
      Most people have hated Trump for decades, even when he was a Democrat. He’s just that kind of guy.

    3. That’s why he spent 25% of his term playing golf, he didn’t understand the seat of president, nor respected it, it was all about him.

    4. @Discrimination is not a right. Well, whoever wrote that line for “The Dark Knight” would probably enjoy hearing that.

  11. He overcame by being surrounded by CORRUPTION like McConnell, Graham, Gaetz and every other GOP member.

  12. All of these people are… essentially traumatized! This is why they talked for the whole four years.

    1. Well you see, that’s the thing about lying down with DOGS.

      You get up with FLEAS.

      It’s hard to feel to very sorry for any of them. We all know what Trump is about, and we’ve all known it FOR YEARS.

    1. It is the ultimate example of the “Peter principle” how a person can be promoted way beyond his competency level. Trump exemplifies that perfectly.
