    He should be help accountable. Lock him up😷

  5. And STILL his fan club hasn’t figured out that he is not rich. All this grifting and begging for donations are not the tactics of a billionaire.

  6. Trump is a Grifter like Televangelists who gives False Hopes and take their Money 💰. Highest bidders will get early Pardons.

  7. Any pardons issued by the president since this bribery investigation started should be declared to be “corrupt pardons” and therefore be Void.

  8. tRump corrupts everything he touches. ……COVID? “WE’RE ROUNDING THE CORNER”

  9. I mean, if trumps innocent, WHY PARDON?🤔🤔🤔

    • Please, when will people learn you can’t reason with Trumpists. They’ll just claim he’s protecting himself from some deep state conspiracy to imprison him. Rational thought has no place in the US right wing.

      No evidence? 😂😅😂😅 It will surface when he’s out of office. He knows that, that’s why he’s scrambling to turn election around. Not happening.
      Mueller’s report stated a president could not be indicted WHILE in office That will end Jan 20. 2020 at noon.

      Trump ordered Flynn to lie. As he does to all that work for him. Some didn’t & resigned or got fired. The ones that stayed, well are or were in jail , until trump pardoned them.

    • ​@Alicia Espinosa Reference link to backup your claim that Trump ‘ordered’ Flynn to lie?

  10. The Crooks are getting more Crooked. 🤔

  11. The money trail for Pardons —-> Trump

    Americans should be ashamed, to had voted for this man. I feel ashamed just to know he is our President.

    • Bennie Crawford | December 2, 2020 at 7:21 PM | Reply

      Me to, I felt dirty ever since he was elected and I live in Texas from long generations of Texans and to know those children are in camps on our border makes me constantly feel so ashamed that I live here and Texas looks like a very dark place to me now and it’s a stain that will never leave us.

      I couldn’t believe it. I still cannot. I can not believe that Trump of the 1980s and 1990s managed to convince that many people that he could improve their lives

    • Me too an am not even American!

    • I thought getting him out of our house would end his reign..but to my horror he’s talking about running for president in 2024 so he can keep dismantling our wonderful Democracy into a One party Republican rule with no voting and all white people evangelical…So scared for our country..

      @Toni Butts
      He can run, but we’ll remember and will show up to vote in millions and stop him.

  13. As a reality show man he is doing a good job, it’s quite entertaining. Sadly his followers don’t get the show part of it.

  14. ,He’s gonna start breaking things up” (Mary Trump)

  15. It looks like the Trump Syndicate is having a “Going Out of Business Sale”.

    • The guy selling Trump flags in my area is having a 2 for 1 sale. Still not selling any. Can’t even give ’em away.

    • That’s what I though. they may be out of the WH, but out of business I don’t think so. Trump and family has milked the system to the max, and that include the GOP in every possible way. Forget the crimes they have already pocketed million of dollars apparently “legally”, some under the table. Confronting Trump is not the sole responsibility of the SDNY it’s gotta be a concerted effort. Biden wants to move forward. I say accountability must prevail.

    • @Howard Taylor Tell him to Give them to The Homeless.
      They might be good for the Camp 🔥 Fire🙄

  16. Trump will sell those pardons in order to get himself out of debt. Let’s face it, he has a lot of it!

  17. He said : drain the swamp , actually he creates a monster septic swamp .

  18. There has to be “a government official” involved, only the President can give a pardon.

  19. Trump has debt coming due of 400 million of course he’s trying to sell pardons.

  20. Remember T**** pardoned the Illinois governor who sold the Senate seat
