      @JoeyFiveandDimes Interesting? Got any particular links handy? I’d like to learn more. I do know that Traitor TRump rewrote his Father’s WILL to cut out his sister and anybody else in the family – and tried to get his Father to sign it.

      Trumpty D ………………   Contemporary accounts have been covered up, so 2nd and 3rd hand rumor, but numerous. Why we need to find what was holed away in that safe of the National Enquirer . This I do know: There is NO death certificate, NO doctor’s or coroner’s report, NO ’cause of death’, NO documents available concerning anything about the early death of Freddie trump Jr. which should be a matter of public record . There is ONLY Donald trump’s words that the death was suicide from alcoholism . ( PS, NOT ‘alcohol poisoning’ which is real . Death from the ambiguous ‘alcoholism’ is not ) .

      Trump doesn’t know he’s a crook.

    • Very true.

      No Dogman Mama ******
      Trump’s a well-seasoned and polished con-man. He’s been conning people all his adult life. That’s why he’s able to convince those with less perception that he’s actually telling the truth. All you have to do is observe him awhile before you see what a blatant liar he is. I have to wonder, doesn’t he realize there are videotapes of him saying one thing on a given topic, and then completely contradicting himself on another? Apparently, his cultists don’t reference anything except junk journalism like FAUX or Judicial Watch, so they haven’t seen the proof with their own eyes and ears. Either that, or they just don’t care.

    • That is as true today as it EVER was. Trump knows just enough to gt himself in trouble. He speaks, therefore he IS. Arrgh

    • Ego is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity. ( * Booker T. Washington )

  5. Someone should collect every bad thing Trump did, every lie he told, every time he showed his low IQ or
    dyslexia and than rank them and print small Satanic Pocket Bibles.
    And if a Republican starts with *BUT OBAMA* you only need to open your book and start with *BUT TRUMP*
    Good Chapter names would be *Nemesis*, *Covfefe*, *ExodusMaximus* or *WALLfart*

    In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham called Parnas “a man who is currently out on bail for federal crimes and is desperate to reduce his exposure to prison.”

    DjT, a man who has been impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and is currently on trial in the Senate and is desperate to reduce his exposure to more incriminating evidence that would include witness testimony and ensure a guilty verdict that would remove him from office.

  7. “Trump only know what he *thinks* he knows”

    Aka: “Trump only knows Trump”

    • trump doesn’t know just how much he doesn’t know.

      Marc Emson 👌KNOWN also, is that NO Dems donkeys can do better . Name calling, insults, bad mouthing & such does not render “qualification” to Dems.👌.

    Gotta love Joe’s authentic belly laugh at the end of the opening bit, it made the solid burn on the “stable genius” even better! Great job Morning Joe production / writing team!

  9. Trump knows not to cross the Kremlin. He’s been doing everything to their advantage and America’s demise since day one.

    • Alex P …dead right …He is terrified of putin …and he has probably been told “he can be got to either now or later” that several times in the past …and now it is in his head putin has him by the balls.

    • Alex P Is that why he actually gave Ukraine weapons, as opposed to Obama who gave them blankets? Is that why the new defense bill incorporated sanctions against Russia? Don’t let facts get in the way of your fun “Russian asset” fairytale though. 🤣

    • Richard Jansen | January 17, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      Absolutely Putin told Trump I’ll get you elected and I want you to make United States have the greatest economy ever in the lowest unemployment rates ever and then make the world’s best trade deals with everybody exempt Russian Place more sanctions on Russia and then arm Ukraine so they can defend themselves from Russia all makes perfect sense you people are morons

    • ​@Richard Jansen
      no one that is idiotic enough to spew that verbal diarrhea, should ever call anyone else a Moron.
      no one that is ignorant & brainwashed enough, to still support Trump, should ever call anyone else a Moron.

  11. i love it how he knows everything and everyone until they are in trouble then all of a sudden he knows nothing what a con man

  12. chris sinclair | January 17, 2020 at 10:50 AM | Reply

    Just imagine the books and movies that will be made about the madman and his partners in crime. If you do just one important thing this year, get out and vote.

  13. I present you the most stable genius, the chosen one, the greatest mind in history who is all knowing without question the Manchild in Chief LoL. That little montage was fnckin hilarious 🤣😂🤣

  14. Think of the dumbest person you know.
    Now think of t’rump.
    That first person doesn’t seem so stupid now, am I right?

    • Ro G I thought of anyone who still watches MSNBC/CNN after 2 years of being suckered with “Russian collusion”. It doesn’t get dumber than that

  15. Mussolini’s Taint is a guilty MF and was incharge of the crimes being committed for his benefit.

  16. how stupid is trump ? 🙂 he could have avoided impeachment by saying : “i don’t know me, i’ve never met me, i don’t know what i did” 🙂

  17. Joe is right; when Trump says he knows more than anyone, Trump doesn’t know squat, when Trump says he doesn’t know someone, he’s known them for years.

    • * when Trump says he doesn’t know someone, he’s COMMITTED CRIMES with them for years…..

      THERE, i FIXED it for you.

  18. When Trump denies something, the exact opposite is true.

      TRUMP 2020 !

    • Yes, did you see how many times he said he “didn’t know” those gentlemen or Lev Parnas. I liked Lev Parnas’ answer to Rachel: “He lied.” Simple and sweet words with no malice or disbelief. “He lied.” Something that will help when people want to argue or fight about what trump has done or not done. “He lied.” and kept on lying and is lying any time he opens his mouth. If he said he DID something, he did not. If he said he did NOT do something, he did it. “He lied.” about everything he could get his hands on.

    • @Anthony hopperpup guilty as charged❗

  19. Add: “Many people” means him. And any story where the other person calls him sir is completely made up.

    How can you study windmills when you can’t even read a briefing you can barely read a teleprompter
