      @marcus milla I just love you little millennials you haven’t done a single thing with your life. Your group is the least educated of any group of the population. Yet you are critical of others do you realize that the vast majority of Americans are laughing at you? Go back to mom’s basement and play with your video games that’s all you have LOL 🤣🤣😂😂😁

    • @Lawrence DeHarde 1 : I’m 32
      2 : My life is irrelevant , I have no need to boast it’s below me. You are a trump supporter the world is embarrassed and ashamed of you.

    • Don’t worry democrats, when your political leaders have failed you, when your own cities have been set on fire, when you realize that defunding the police is a idiot IQ idea. We will welcome you to TEXAS, where we enjoy 0 state income tax, good wages, and safe streets. Feel free to bring your guns too, so we can go shooting on the weekends.

  3. I love how 90% of comments on here are pro Trump trolls

    • @String Monkey “Trump shut down flights from China, “.
      Not immediately he didn’t, he banned CHINESE passengers from China.

      Phuket Wurd and I wondering why? Dose he believe the virus only attack Chinese at that time?

    • I wish world peace uh. You wanna know why? Well, according to the facts… china had the majority of the covid cases when he closed the airways. Not to mention it originated in Wuhan.

      @Khadija Fleming Many have turned to unemployment, data speaks louder about those that will/are been evicted from their homes than CovID death toll.

    They should’ve been worried about that since he was elected. Especially, on Inauguration Day.

    Driving society into the ground doesn’t do him any favours

    • You don’t feel the Democrats running all these crumbling cities for the last 40 yrs have anything to do with it. Trump in office for 3 yrs. Obama for 8 and did NOTHING. Good luck with that whole Biden thing.

    • Regan Pelletier | June 30, 2020 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      Mark N show us on the mannequin where the Democrats touched you? Was it your dingus? Maybe on the bottom?

    • @Regan Pelletier yep, he’s a liberal. Emboldened by the herd of cowardly, indoctrinated, self loathing, do nothing, spoiled sheep. Yep.

  8. Remember this walk away.

    Trump is already laying the foundation for why he’s going to lose and it’ll be blamed on mail-in voting

  10. Starting to…….😂😂😂wow

    • We only worried about having the government control everything in our lives including our minds. Like in Harrison Bergeron. We’d prefer to work our booty off to go to college or get a good job. We dont give a damn if we are black, brown, or white. We dont let others cognitive bias to define us. We cant be worried if we have chips that prevent us from even thinking about stuff tho. But I guess thats when a liberal gov will stop trying to control those stupid Republicans eh.

    • Amy Victoria …… It’s OK to smile ….. we have all been cautiously awaiting the time to collectively “take out the trash” ….. that day is getting closer and closer …… November 3rd.

    • TRUMP 2020 baby. Time to stamp out every Democrat who HATES America. Who kneels for the flag, who pisses on the police and military, and crys racism at every objection to blatant insanity. You guys are going down so hard and you’ve been blinded by the media. Let me know how those political polls came about in 2016 with Hillary winning. CNN and this modern day liberalism is so blatantly out of control it’s sad that you guys are still here. I check both sides and it’s pretty easy to see where the insane people lay lie. Red Tsunami. Get woke, go broke.

    • Edwardo Karrano not his fault gov cuomo put covid patients in nursing homes. Or biden called trump closing airlines xenophobic. I beg to differ. Plenty of people where at fault and id like to see someone create a time machine, become president and do better. Biden wont do shat. Changes his political views all the time just to get votes. Bet he will do it again when the truth comes out.

      You, cause those who love low taxes will vote other than Biden. Anyhow both parties got dirty secrets, full of bs.

    • EternalFame I’ll entertain you. As someone who would’ve preferred someone with ideals between Bernie and Yang, I’ll take any candidate over Trump. I like how you’re ignoring the alternative as if no one at all has anything better to offer. Trumps presidency is a disaster. He’s a moron. He gave morons a voice which helped land us in this current mess. The party backing him are a spineless, selfish, idiotic group of people who would put anything and anyone at risk to protect their personal interests which benefit only them. I’m sure there are plenty of people who actually want Biden and I think they’re a bit less crazy than anyone wanting more of a Republican majority but know that Biden is a bitter pill to swallow as while I’d much rather vote for a progressive who won’t cater to the corruption of money in politics, Biden is the closest realistic option to that. I’ll take hope over an ignorant sociopath who cares for nothing but his own gain and ego. Trump’s gotta go because he is objectively in the name of human and planetary interests, and in the interest of peace and shared prosperity, the absolute worst option. Biden, with all his flaws (which I’m assuming is your pointless point), is incredibly more appealing than Don. And I don’t like Biden! That’s how bad Trump and the GOP are. I’m more than happy to settle.

  13. Last week Tucker Carlson warned his viewers that Trump “could actually lose.” LOL

  14. I need a drink I dont know what have a clorox cocktail or a vodka and tonic.

  15. They should have started worrying the moment this man was elected.

    • @Looney Times Nah, he’s proud of being ignorant

    • @Mike L … That’s the problem. Half of Trumpletons are anarchists… They want to watch Orange Julius burn the world down….

    • Looney Times sorry watch the news. Its actually liberal anarchists lmao!

    • Let me explain something to you. Conservatives ARE NOT worried. We are laughing at you. The silent majority sees you imploding. CNN is fake news. You really think ole creppy Dementia Joe Biden really has a shot against Trump? The guy cant even put his own pants on. Have you seen him speak? He cant even complete a full sentence with forgetting what hes talking about. Joe Biden has been hiding and is praying this virus lasts until election time so he doesnt have to do a national debate. The left is a JOKE. Mark my words, this virus will just “disappear” after the election.Let me explain something to you CNN. Conservatives ARE NOT worried. We are laughing at you.

    No sympathy for the GOP… their corruption enabled this disaster of a Fraud in Chief.

    • Exactly, the Gop allowed themselves to be put in this position

    • Biden committed federal crimes in the Ukraine and you all wrongfully blamed Trump for it! We will destroy you at the polls- all of you GD liars!

      Meanwhile Democrat cities are eating eachother up and fucking it up. Gun sales sky rocket because of “protesters”. BLM charity money goes to the Democrat party (the slavery party). Businesses are burned from riots
      ( wonder what city do these come from), oregon county made a race law(democrats, again), but trUmP iS eViL even though nobody has evidence for anything they claim.

    • 15k DOW 2022 – A Trump follower calling Biden senile, crooked or racist is like the ocean calling a puddle wet.

    • If you say, “Dems are the racists,” or, “Dems started the Klan,”
      1)- That was long ago.
      2)- Dems always get around 90% of the black vote.
      3)- Literally every racial hate group in America supports Republican politicians and candidates.
      4)- Protesting racism is not racist. If you say that, you’re an idiot.

    I’d have started worrying heavily when Senate Republicans threw our justice system into the gutter and let Trump off the impeachment hook.

    • Northern Pacific Railway History lol. Impeachment for what? Ah, yes. Something that never happened but cnn and msnbc would not like to dwell over

    • MYRIAM SANDOVAL | June 30, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      Wrong. The democrats have been trying to impeach Trump on the first day he became president. They have done nothing in the last 4 years put try to impeach Trump. How about the fact that Biden and Obama attempted a coup on the president. There is documentation and transcripts in the Flynn case which were exhibits in his Motion to Dismiss. His case is public record and easily accessible. Don’t believe what the media is reporting. It is all fake news!!!

      Y’all in America are so brainwashed by the media it’s ridiculous.

    • Elias Geistanger the amount of arguments in the comments beg to differ

  18. Let’s hope. The party needs to be burned to the ground
