  1. Republicans have proved beyond any doubt over the last three years that they are just as immoral and unpatriotic, just as devoid of character and principle, as Toxic Traitor Trump, whose crimes they continue to cover-up and gaslight!

    • @MainelyLong before Russian oligarchs interfering in American elections, an Australian plutocrat called Murdoch was–and continues–manipulating public opinion and unduly influencing American elections!

    • @Mainely Bingo another one wins ! Wish more people would get it right. Thank you !

    • @wily wascal Well done ! So much fascism from so many dolts (Republicans).

    • @Diane Hooper Don’t allow their sick obsession with guns to deceive–Republicans are the Klueless Keystone Krooks who can’t shoot straight!

  2. If Donald trump still considers himself a host for hospitality then boom! That’s a conflict of interests causes he is president not a host for his business

  3. Mulvaney is a grown man and denies to have said exactly what the cameras recorded him saying 🤦‍♂️

    • @payneicecold3000 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😅😅🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅😅

    • @earthychef” That’s a Fact, JACK ” !!!

    • @payneicecold3000 he did not say on Fox news he misspoke he said we all misunderstood big difference and I know where his head is and everybody has missed this part. Mulvaney believes that this ask of Zelensky is foreign policy NOT a political favor. He firmly believes that and the white house in this belief that it was foreign policy to fight Ukraine corruption and not a political favor they think that makes it all legit and there is no wrongdoing and this impeachment is a baseless wurch hunt to quote the tangerine.

    • The media denies Biden said what he said on Youtube about his son and Ukraine bragging about Quid Pro Quo

  4. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: “The Trump administration has been characterized by five things: chaos, crisis, confusion, corruption, and criminal activity.”

      @Barry Sutton You’re one of the many victims of demagoguery. Get well.

    • You’re describing Hillary in 2016. Trump is record low minority unemployment, lower taxes with record high tax revenue, smoking economy, better trade deals, double EIC for poor families, NATO paying fair share, temp cease fire with Kurds and Turkey, bringing troops home, and polls similar to Obama despite 92% negative coverage from the MSM swamp. Oh wait you are watching the fake news swamp. Sorry for you. Come over to the winning side you’ll be happy and prosperous!

    • @DK Durham : I have never been a fan of the “Prosperity Gospel” in politics OR religion.

  5. Time to Save America.. ..IMPEACH and PROSECUTE TRUMP and PENCE and all involved…..all have Committed Treason and Obstruction of Justice.

    • @GhostHuntersOfOzarks I think we’re done here. You clearly do not understand the rules of government.

      I am in government, I’ve see alot of crap, but you just go ahead and sound intelligent or what ever builds your ego..

      Same people chatting on here are the same ones crying russia russia russia. But we know it was hilary that tried to buy dirt on trump. But you all been singing the same tune over and over again like the puppets of the media you are. Dance puppets Dance!

  6. Watching republicans self immolate is truly remarkable.

    • @CynAnne1
      Never give conservatism any power, it decays the whole system.

    • @jeck jeck – We’ll give them ‘power’, all right…but first let them sit in this specially-designed chair and wear this wet ballcap. ⚡🧢⚡

    • Arguing with Lefties is too easy when by all measurements the Pres is excelling at his job. Goes something like this. D: The pres is a doo doo head. R: Record low minority unemployment. D: Orange man bad. R: 65 year low female unemployment. D: Stupid Hair R: Better trade deals. D: Open Borders. R: Secure Borders. R: Better GDP than Obama said possible. D: Biggot R:Bringing troops home like Dems used to support. D: Russian spy R: Lower taxe sAND higher revenue D: Orange man bad…. It’s too easy

    • @CynAnne1 I know! Record low unemployment for minorities, what the heck! They going to think they are too good for welfare then what are we going to do?

    God I just want this administration done with 😩 I want to go back to a boring political sphere where everything isn’t on fire

      @ramo moreno so in 2022 there might be a recession. There might be a cure for TDS by then too I highly doubt it but it’s possible.

    • Leo, Januszewski | October 22, 2019 at 4:13 AM | Reply

      Lol…so stop setting everything on fire.

    • The media is lying to you nothing is on fire except for them. Turn off your cable and go spend your tax savings on something nice and be happy like us.

    Mulvaney said it better than any Republican so far… Trump’s a corrupt, greedy, criminal…

  9. Syria was used as a down payment to the Russians for 2020 help.

  10. It will be interesting to see what lies they come up with this week.

  11. There’s not enough ‘Windex’ in the entire world to clean the crust of corruption off #45’s *utterly abysmal* ‘administration’… 😒

    Now Don-the-Con and his gang of spiders are really stuck in their own cobweb…

    • Wait….is it Toxic Traitor Trump sucking down Goofy Gilligan Giuliani with him, or the Goof dragging down the Chump with him? What, now Mickey Mouse Mulvaney muscling in on the action, too? Guess it don’t even matter! Go, team Orange!!!

      Republicans got themselves trapped in the spin cycle with the cult they created, now incapable of rinsing out corruption, can’t launder crimes anymore. What’s a GOP to do?

  13. Rats don’t desert a sinking ship until they have to tread water. Same with Republicans.

  14. Make Racists Afraid Again | October 21, 2019 at 2:52 PM | Reply

    No more Criminal Republicans!
    But my respect for the few who stood up to Trump

  15. The first “improvement” would be getting rid of the bed bugs

  16. Some of these retiring Republican Senators will still be around until the end of 2019 & would be able to vote for impeachment if they want.

  17. He’s still in the hospitality business? Uh oh. Mulveney accidentally told the truth again.

    • Mick’s a dead man walking! Most folks, in this administration, don’t make it past one truth telling accident, and nobody tells the truth twice, and lives to tell the tale… NOBODY! 😉
      I’m so ready for this bunch of bullshitters to be escorted out of power. Enough with the lies, the poor decision making, and the straight up ignorance that so freely pours from The Trump & Friends administration. I often call it “The Trump Bullshitathon”, it just seems fitting… 🤷🏼‍♀️
      Have a good night, bryson west, my friend! ✌️💜🇺🇸

    • Drumpf wouldn’t know “hospitality” if it hit him in the wallet.

  18. The White House isn’t Trump’s special piggy bank.

    • And the military isn’t a force he can rent out.

    • No, that was the Trump Foundation.

    • ​@W Brown Everything is something he can rent out… at least he thinks so. He isn’t capable of thinking of anything in any way that isn’t transactional. There always has to be something in it for him personally or it isn’t worth bothering about… you know something like the Constitution, or the Separations of Powers, or Honesty… He isn’t getting any profit from them so they don’t matter…

  19. Michael Steele: “I need declarative statements.”
    Senate Republicans: “We need testicular reattachment microsurgery first.”

  20. Nick Mulvaney’s looks like a man condemned
    The stress is killing him.
