  1. Correction Trump has NO cognitive ability.

  2. At this stage I don’t think Dumb Donald has the ability to answer a serious question. All he can produce is meaningless word salad.

    Trump doesn’t need to talk about systemic racism since he’s a part of it.

      @Kevin Preston I never mentioned anything about RACISM or anything about being PROGRESSIVE either. However, if the cap fits…..!

    • Kevin Preston | June 6, 2020 at 4:28 PM | Reply

      @Too-much-cider What you implied was those that call themselves nationalist are racists. What you implied was that that progressives believe in the Constitution. Let me rephrase.. Name one Democrat that does.

      @Tahir Ali, I don’t mean to bust your bubble but you do have some Black people that do support Donald Trump, people like Chi Brown, Ben Carson, David Clarke, Patricia Dickson, Damani Felder, Derrick Gradenigo, Anthony Brian Logan, Jesse Lee Peterson, Brandon Tatum and the twin sisters Diamond and Silk so Tahir what do you say about all these people that I have mention that are Trump supporters.

    We see protesting all around the globe, not just these 50 States.. I was so thankful to the Pope for his words and his prayer for America.. I’m not catholic but that was so very touching..

      MMAorNada So umm, I can’t argue with you on that 😆😆 OK sorry not funny..

    • @ღSwnsasyღ _ nothing to apologize dear. You appreciate the goodness of people or an individual bring to everyone, and so the sincere approach of the Pope, instead of being cynical and judgemental without understanding the foundation of somebodys faith. Thank you for acknowledging it. To you and your family, stay safe!

    • @Teresa S well said. As if any other religion or sect or cult is perfect. Just like what you said, it is better to empower what is good for everyone, rather than blaming and judging that causes inaction. If someone else still lives in the past, theres no use of them in the present.

    • @MMAorNada what does it make you? Are you perfect and of no sin? Whos making the agenda now and making division as you said that Catholics should not befriends? Your arguments are like of the high priest that push Christ to be crucified.

    • @John Gomez the makes me logical . Some one who thinks for him self and researches instead of taking things as they are. I don’t just accept things to spare some ones feeling and I believe in what is right. When I make mistakes I acknowledge them and work to fix them. I’m a human with faults but I don’t use it as a reason to justify premeditated mistakes .

    First, tell us, oh Dear Leader, what EXACTLY is it that YOU have done for Black America that is, ‘more than any other president has ever done.’ (if you can name a single thing YOU have done, at all)
    And Second, why is it the no one mentions that Trump has the rare distinction of LOSING the largest discrimination lawsuit in the history of NY? For discriminating against Blacks specifically. He and his father were sued for their systematic culling of rental applications for one submitted by Blacks and had instructed their managers to mark all of those applications with a ‘C’, for colored. They also employed thuggish and sometimes disgusting tactics to try and force the few Black renters out of their buildings. Trump and his daddy were sued. And they lost.

    • @Mike Polakowski Why, because they resent your white privilege and demand equality?

    • Lynette Wood | June 6, 2020 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      @Colin Cleveland I know Polish people, I know how they think, my father was one. There is no way they would support what trump is doing. Are they racist? yes they can be vey racist, the funny thing is, they dont realise they are being racist. There are many good ones many many level headed ones, but the history of their country, and how they have been treated, would tell them that trump is heading that way.

  8. Trump probably doesn’t even know what the word systemic means.

    • Awe yes, because a bunch of people say “systemic” then systemic exists… Liberal reasoning as usual.

    • Kelly M. Loves Trump and thinks he should wear a crown.

    • LOL you sound like a racist child

    • @Scott Gust That’s racist… the anti-racists are more racist that the racist… and incredibly stupid too.

    • @Tech ti donnie is not standing strong. His administration is shaky and apt to jump ship at any time. He’s an illiterate uneducated unqualified leader. His history of failures are far too many to name
      He has law suites galore. He caused the death of hundreds americans by sleeping on the covid 19. Not to mention he was impeached. His legacy is 💩and he will go down as the worst modern day president.

    Trump’s playbook: ignore the poor, ignore the the pandemic, ignore the violence.
    Next step? Ignore the election results.

    • @Killroy was here,
      A 100% partisan vote for impeachment is such a violation of the essence of America it is already Null and Void in the minds of all good and intelligent people and will be Null and Void officially during President Trump’s next 4 years!

    • @Mark bodman,
      Five years ago during Obama’s ‘New American Normal’ Pelosi, making light of his horrible economy and continuous layoffs, said, “Look on the brightside if you lose your job you can finally take that walk in the Park or take up watercolor painting.” We should have cut her airhead off and placed it with Marie Antoinette’s, but like you said, she’s still out there with her insanity!

    • Downright Dutch | June 6, 2020 at 12:13 PM | Reply

      Mark bodman A federal court ruling just dismissed a Democratic National Committee (DNC) civil suit against Julian Assange‼️ “with prejudice” was a devastating indictment of the US ruling elite’s campaign to destroy the WikiLeaks founder.🤪 It exposed as a fraud the entire “Russiagate” conspiracy theory peddled by the Democratic Party, the corporate media and the intelligence agencies for the past three years‼️
      The decision, by Judge John Koeltl of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, rejected the smears that Assange “colluded” with Russia. It upheld his status as a journalist and publisher and dismissed claims that WikiLeaks’ 2016 publication of leaked emails from the DNC was “illegal.”
      Despite the significance of the ruling, and its clear newsworthiness, it has been subjected to an almost complete BLACKOUT by the entire FAKE NEWS media in the US and internationally.
      The universal silence on the court decision—extending from the New York Slimes (which buried a six-paragraph report on the ruling on page 25) and the Washington ComPost, to “alternative” outlets such as the Intercept, the television evening news programs and the publications of the pseudo-left— can be described only as a coordinated political conspiracy.📣💸💸💸

      @Downright Dutch Julian Asanage is a whistleblower. Funny how the ducking femocrats support some but not all whistleblowers. Let me see what’s the difference. Oh i know whistleblowers against them the sue, whistleblowers against Trump they support.

    I’m German. When I hear, “He’s just a black man,” I automatically hear, “He’s just a Jew.” And I know the consequences.

    • Christopher Wenning | June 6, 2020 at 12:29 PM | Reply

      @Larry Garland For me there is a person of the Jewish faith. A human being. No more, no less. I’m a Catholic theologian. I’m friends with Jews. I go to synagogue. The Jews attend my church. We are united in Germany. We live in peace.
      The same is now with the Muslims. Although we despise political Islam that instrumentalizes its own religion – just as we despise the abuse of our own religion -, we know that religious and enlightened Islam (which certainly exists) is peaceful and civilized. We learn to live together in peace. The American president said to Germany when we took in people threatened by terror: “It’s insane.” Every western country chooses its own leaders.
