  1. That’s how he’ll doctor the 2020 elections results to a second term.

  2. What is even more sad is that I have been overseas and have talked to people there, and it is beyond their imagination how crazy Trump is. I was so ashamed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to be an American??? The people there understand that this so called leader is unstable!!!

      @Adam Muklewicz So you are good with him literally pocketing your money? He is making some serious bank off of you inbred kinfuckers. None of you see it because your parents DNA was a bit closer than need be.

    • @Heywood Jablomi I”m trying. Thank you for your encouragement !!!!

    • @M Ppp You’re not as bright as you look, are you?

    • Phuket Wurd. I didn’t know my picture was available for this screen name. I’m a businessman and I have that sharp useless look abut me. lol. How did you get my pic?

  3. Trump just took a sharpie to another world map by drawing the shape of Greenland off the coast of Florida, and declaring it the 51st State. It appears no map is safe from this sharpie wielding menace.😄

    America has a President who cannot grow up but keep lying on and on.

    Fake President should be ashamed. What a nimrod.

    • Think for yourself for a change and you might find some truth there.

    • Yeah MAGA really meant MAWA – Make America White Again.  I say MRAA 2020 – Make Racists Afraid Again.

    • @Dale Cox You fools have been lied to and it appears totally brainwashed. He is NOT a racist and you would know that if you did any thinking for yourself or watched and listened to him yourself, rather than get your information second hand from the bought and paid for lying media. They are owned by the Deep State who never expected to lose the election and now they will do or say anything to get their power back. That is all the Democrats and their Media have been working on 24/7 for over two years is denigrating, defaming and trying to make people believe things about him that are untrue so that you won’t listen to him because if you did, you would vote for him.

    A man that will lie about his (crowd) size will lie about anything.

    “Just remember, it’s not a lie if you believe it.” – George Costanza on Seinfeld

    • @SkyGemini I’d check Wikipedia if I were you (I knew that Hitler coined it from history class and that Goebbels used it as a tool for propaganda).

      This is the full quote, taken from Wikipedia:

      “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

      It is verified that Joseph Goebbels did put forth a theory which has come to be more commonly associated with the expression “big lie”. Goebbels wrote the following paragraph in an article dated 12 January 1941, 16 years after Hitler’s first use of the phrase. The article, titled Aus Churchills Lügenfabrik (English: “From Churchill’s Lie Factory”) was published in Die Zeit ohne Beispiel.

      The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously”.

    • @SkyGemini I suppose it’s a bit of both (I mostly wanted to add the rest of the quote – which I think adds a pretty scary dimension to any fascist regime).

  8. Donald Trump is focusing on he only thing that matters to him: his own self image. What Trump does not realize is that he has done more damage to himself in the last five days than he has in the last five weeks, and that is a considerable feat, because he seems to have spent the entire summer shooting himself in the foot almost every single day.

    • The Great Dragon’s proud visage is shone.
      “I’m great!”, “I’m bright!”, “I did it on my own!”

    • trump is what happens when a human being has ZERO sense of humor. this whole sh*tshow started when a roomful of people laughed at obama’s trump jokes.

    • @Nonya Bizness Trump’s sense of humor is the same sense of humor every grade school bully has. When he does or says something truly horrific, he says, “Just kidding.”

    • I would argue that just as Trump can only fake feelings for others [and then badly] he also has no real depth of feeling for himself. Yes, he can meet those primal needs and have moments of being ‘temporary satisfied’ ‘or one may say ’emotionally bloated’ [like stuffing himself with so much food that he feels sick] but I don’t think he can do complex feelings at all [ones that involve both himself and something extra e.g. other people and their thoughts or feelings, the future, the past, or alternative choices. Hence he has no concern about changing his mind; it does not cross his mind that he has done so. He has just reacted to a situation and said what makes him feel sated/full/big/important – all the same to him I guess.. And as I said, if he can’t do future stuff [well not complex future thoughts] then it won’t cross his mind that there will be detrimental consequences. For him consequences exist only in the here-and-now and his focus is on getting immediate satisfaction anyway he can. Of course I may be over-analyzing him but it sort of makes sense [and I am fascinated how such a monster got into the White House]; and it may explain you own insight into his apparently self-destructive behavior.

    7 year olds can read and write

    • Remember most americans are low IQ inbreds on drugs with lead water pipes so most adults can only function at a grade 2 or 3 level.

    • When Donald dump says make America great again what he really means is make Asiatic black people slaves again. For that I want my reparations today 30 billion dollars tax free for life

    • OMG he IS Harold and the purple crayon.

    Evil Trump Only Lies.
    Trump’s soul, like his hands, is small and weak.

    When his pants start to flame up, don’t put them out!! Burn baby burn!!

  12. All that goes through that tiny little mind is …I’m the president and I can do whatever I want.

      @Daniel if you refer to my above comment about limiting the voting age of white males over 50 (made largely in provocative jest), I was not so much “criticizing those in power” as “advocating for a reform of our political system that takes into account necessary reparations for past discriminations by promoting the vote of categories of citizens which have historically been oppressed”. It’s a much cheaper way to achieve reparations than anything else I’ve seen offered, and it’s not as bad as it sounds. You still get to vote from age 15 to 50.

      @PAGAN ROXX Try reading fewer comments…

    • @Thomas Ponsard uh huh uh huh… sure man… lemme know how that works out for ya. there are only so many self loathing white folks bud…. the rest of us do what we think is right… but, we also get sick of being thrown in your generalization… you like being generalized? are you an illiterate gang banger? ridiculous.

    • @Daniel I dont watch tv.

    • @Ryan North so your ignorant and “woke”, comical… you get your “news” from right wing conspiracy sites….. great.

  16. Anybody remember when people said Hillary didn’t have the temperament or mental strength to be president? Instead now we have a man baby who is SO FRAGILE he has to create an IMAGINARY WORLD for himself because the real world is TOO TOUGH.

    If he was a mad dog we would have him put down to protect the family.

  19. But Narcissists ARE “insecure” …..extremely insecure —- to the point of fear, sabotage, destruction, paranoia, and disloyalty, etc.,….

  20. You all see how donald trump tweaked that weather map with the Sharpie marker, to appease himself?……🤔Now, think about what he will try for the 2020 Election…..

    • @Ronald Moore You are the morons who have such major fear of reality

    • Should he lose, (knock on wood) the spin will be next level. I dont know that we are prepared for how thats going to go down.

    • @amanda flohr I would HOPE that the Secret Service would stand by their jobs and forcibly remove Trump from the White House if he lost and refused to accept it…

      I can fully see Trump trying to ignore the results when he loses though, and trying to ignite a civil war, just so he could declare himself king.

      He’s already attempted to push the idea of him being “President for Life” on multiple occasions, as well as calling himself “the chosen one”, “the second coming” and even more insane and self-deifying crazy names…
      Frankly, he merely calling himself king would be the least I expect, and a big step down from recent insane outbursts.

    • @Dahn, thats exactly what i mean. There is no way to know what this loon is capable of trying to pull when he gets ousted. I would enjoy seeing secret service drag him across the white house lawn though.
