      @Bully Olly lying implies being purposefully misleading. Give me one example of him doing that.

    • when he goes full dictator he’ll be doing as the arabs and cutting off heads.
      Foreign ministers etc, he’ll have fired from their job with threats of sanctions or war.

    If there is one thing that autocrats hate more than anything else it’s naysayers.

  3. So…..basically we got a modern day Nixon in office and no one is doing anything about it. Well then, guess I’m going to smoke weed in front of the police station. 🤷🏿‍♂️

  4. Many former Trumpers at least saved Trump from damaging the nation further. Saved him from himself.

    He wants YES MEN . it’s funny when conservative say FREE THOUGHT when trump hires yes men and fire anyone with a opinion of their own .

      @michaelthemovieman Name 3 specific instances of your allegations. Who was fired and pls make sure they were not fired for their incompetence?

    • But you are free to think whatever – they tell you to. Free thought = whatever you want to think. As long as it is exactly what conservatives tell you. You are totally free to share their opinion.

      @nand nicarrabla Stanley McChrystal, David Petraeus and Michael Flynn all disagreed with Obama and were fired by him for it. Oops. You lose.

    • @michaelthemovieman Name one. Just one. Besides, cute whataboutism, but this is about the insane dodderer in the WH and the flock of sheep – oops -his administration. And the former GOP, now trumpublican party. trump claims: the earth is flat and his lemmings shout YESYESYES and try to jump over the edge.

      michaelthemovieman you guys are arguing about the wrong thing. the president is allowed to have yes men to carry out his orders and can fire them if they disagree with him and get in the way of executing policy but there’s an unspoken understanding that the president’s orders would all be legal. Trump ordered Mcgahn to get rid of Mueller (obstruction) and Mcgahn was gonna resign because of it. Trump tried to have Jeff Sessions unrecuse himself and get Mueller to look only at future election interference (obstruction again) and forget about what happened in 2016. I don’t think any of this is comparable to anything that happened in the Obama administration (although I’m sure you’ll be able to find something) and even if there was something comparable let me let you in on a little secret: OBAMA ISN’T THE PRESIDENT ANYMORE!

  6. Thicc stuff news aw yea 😂😂😂🇨🇦

  7. Yes-men do not occur because of friendliness or fondness. They arise out of fear or disengagement.

  8. EXCELLENT REPORTING!! Clarity at its finest..

  9. The problem is that Trump has been running his big businesses for so long, he’s never had to deal with people telling him no.

    To many yes men or women around this fool. But it’s not surprising because it’s been that way for him his entire life.

  12. This should be used as evidence that can show the pattern of his lawless mentally unfit state of mind.

    Like he said he can get away murder and it’s being proved everyday

    That’s the language of tyrants and dictators.

    When people tell Trump no, he banishes them to the cornfield.

    Trump is a runaway demagogue who must be stopped.

  18. If it’s possible to work for Donald Trump and still remain an honest person, we haven’t seen evidence of it yet.

    They aren’t people, but mostly criminals for the country of USA.
