Wide Condemnation Of Trump’s Threats About Protests - But Silence From Most Republicans | MSNBC 1


President Trump drew wide condemnation a day after he threatened to use military force against people protesting police brutality. Many found it especially appalling that he made the threat as federal police used tear gas to roughly clear a peaceful protest in Lafayette Square, so that Trump could subsequently use the nearby church for a photo op. But for the most part, Republican politicians were refusing to comment. Aired on 6/2/2020.

    So where are the people who always speek about how their second amendment rights are crucial to stop a tyrannical government?

    Man the look on Sen. Cory Booker’s eyes. its pure FURY. I wish he was my senator.

    • You mention hypocrisy. There’s no greater hypocrisy than the way Trump was brandishing that Bible.

    • this booker guy, isn’t he the dude that does the spin-a-rooni…. i guess he’s too old and just talks a lot of smack nowadays.

      @Kar……what projection??? I’m talking about DOCUMENTED PAST you half-wit. And your stupid comments, just like the rest of you liberal imbeciles are ALL EMOTIONS. You have nothing to say. Ever. Trump is bad…yeah, we get it.

      No comment on Biden? No comment on Clinton? No comment on Obama? Nope…to easy to obfuscate DOCUMENTED FACTS. Unbelievable! So incredibly stupid.

      The DNC funded the production of false information to apply for FISA warrants. That is a series of very serious felony offences. 10x worse than Watergate.

      Biden openly brags about a quid-pro quo withholding a billion dollars to interfere with investigation of Burisma and his son…and Kerrys son.

      Clinton foundation receives less than 10% of donations since 2016 when she lost her influence. They’ve been using it as a slush fund for years. Not to mention deleting 33,000 emails…nothing to see here folks!

      Those are facts! Legally, Trump is cleaner than a preachers sheets compared to the Liberal Crime Syndicate.

      You’re on glue! Wake the F up toolbox!

      @kar, the worst part about you idiots is that I can’t learn ANYTHING from any of you. You never say anything. You’re all hiveminded. I can talk to one Liberal and I know where every single one of you stand on every issue. You’re all morons.

    • @Cory Williamson “cleaner than a preachers sheets”……… 😄

    And the “Republicans band” played on in this “Ball Of Confusion”.

    If protesters can take all this abuse to bring change, the least we all can do is go out there and vote!

    • That means a lot : vote. Thank you so much

      You mean criminals, rite.

      @Michael Cera and thinking like that lost us the last election because enough folks didn’t vote in high enough numbers to make the gerrymandering moot. That is what it takes. Staying home and whining about “my vote doesn’t count” just makes you not counted and helps the vy flks you don’t want to win. Only offices not directly elected are the Pres and VP…everything else direct, do vote Michael, it does most certainly count. I have not missed an election since November 1976, and don’t intend to miss any until I am no longer breathing.

      I Agree

  6. One of them actually says, “I’m late for lunch” – I’d say he’s “out to lunch” meaning totally wackadoodle and incompetent for the position he holds.

    • they did not have any excuses so they merely said whatever is in their mind at that moment (which is their lunch, because they never care about anyone else).

      It’s was a perp walk of old fools and ineffectual tired old men.

    Absolute shame! Why would we expect any different from a child?

  8. college boy | June 3, 2020 at 1:10 PM | Reply

    Any marginally educated, fair minded person; whether democrat or republican, would interpret Trump’s Bible escapade as an act of adolescent level stupidity. This is how a child acts when he or she can’t get their way. Trump’s cognitive skills are at an all time low and Bill Barr is right there with him. They belong in a nursing home, not running the country in Washington. Shame on them.

  9. The Republican who’s “late for lunch” could afford to skip a meal. It’s not like eating lunch is going to grow him a backbone anyways.

    Sincerely… he did this to “ALL” of us.

  11. Trump will not divide us! Repube senator’s are cowards. Vote!

  12. Javier Aviles | June 3, 2020 at 2:33 PM | Reply

    They will defend them until he’s out of office. Watch everyone go against him once he’s out. The hypocrisy will be tenfold.

  13. Elizabeth Ayres | June 3, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

    Republicans owe everyone an explanation. They slink away like snakes

  14. “Im late for lunch…” wow, and you work for who again?

  15. Joanne Nicastro | June 3, 2020 at 5:26 PM | Reply

    Donald trump is the worst excuse for a human being. The mystery is how does any decent person support him.

    Fox reported “no teargas was used in these violent protesters” was is steam that they were using? Fox should hang their heads in shame

      @Professor Liberal Avenger no wrong try again Junior 😉
      You are merely Projecting at this point. Your name is a fraud just like your arguments have been so far.
      Try Again ✌️

      @Alan aka FANG You again? Yawn.

    • Raven Rodriguez | June 4, 2020 at 8:12 PM | Reply

      @Alan aka FANG so far… five people are saying in this thread that there was tear gas, politicfact says tear gas, cnn says tear gas, bbc says teargas, even Australian news reporters who were beaten by police officers says there was tear gas.

      But your mind must so much better with one vid to think otherwise, maybe you need to fix the issue and actually attend one. Get vids and post on youtube, Facebook and twitter to call out the false narrative.

      But for now, its widely credited there was tear gas that was used AGAINST the protesters. Keep denying all you want, that whole mob who got gassed has more voting power than your little mond, and they wont be voting for any GOP or Trump this November.

      @Raven Rodriguez show me a video of the police wearing gas masks?

      Probably the steam from the steamed hams? /s

    Beating people up while hes holding the bible. It’s like something in a cartoon it’s so insane.

    The only thing that’s “dominant” about trump is his utter stupidity. Please keep on keeping on trump cus it will make it easier for Americans seeking honor and truth in November.
