  • LTV The Locker Room says:

    I have it on a good sourse that your colegues and friends got caught out behind the capitol whacking mr winkinky and discussing how you had no reat and true evidense but how you would be paid very well by mr reinhold

  • LTV The Locker Room says:

    my sourses tell me that you are having a very hard time doing your taxes for last year because you cant make a decission how to explain certain items that point to you being a wanker

  • Joel Wateres-muddy says:

    Calling all American allies America needs an intervention we must take down the Trump regime. Our government no longer works we must get help

  • Republicans can not call or consider themselves "patriots" if they don't do anything about foreign intervention in our democracy. They are neither patriots nor defenders of the constitution. They're activity seeking to undermine the USA.

  • Sharon Farmer says:

    Deanna Delmar…you are talking about Obama aren’t you? Trump has not even taken a salary… Obama and Hillary made a fortune thru her so called Charitable organizations with other countries paying them unbelievable amounts of money so the other countries can get what they want from the United States…..

  • Cheryl Kallman says:

    I dislike responding to the idiots wasting my time, however, If u don't confront their lies they THINK they are getting away with it. That's what is wrong with frump. He has never been confronted. Wait…. Bubbas not going to like that when he gets to prison. Sad.

  • Teresa Morales says:

    Trump does not hear the words "disrespecting americans or america".
    Trump does not operate within "the rule of law", his dictionary doesn't go there.

    THE MADAM SECRETARY HILLARY CLINTON ALWAYS SOUNDS PRESIDENTIAL, ARTICULATE, COHESIVE AND INTELLIGENT. FINE WORDS CRAFTING. SHE MIGHT STILL BE OUR FIRST LADY PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THANK YOU MADAM. PLEASE CONTINUE TO WATCH OVER US AND THE NATION. GOD BLESS YOU.

  • Conrad Sunkiojack says:

    YES. YOU WOULD FIRST HEAD TO THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. NO DOUBT, THAT IS THE REASON WHY YOU INSTALLED YOUR STOOGE BRETT KAVANAUGH IN FEAR OF THIS MOMENT DONALD TRUMP. WE KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN HAVING TALKS WITH HIM THAT HE HAS YOUR BACK. CONTINUE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE WHOLE WORLD CAN SEE WHY YOU HAVE BEEN MISBEHAVING THE WAY YOU DO. SO THE SUPREME COURT IS WHAT IS MAKING YOU BIG HEADED. THAT WAS WHY YOU AND YOUR SON TRUMP JR. ACCEPTED DEROGATORY INFORMATION FROM THE RUSSIANS TO HELP YOU DURING THE 2016 UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CAMPAIGNS. WELL THERE IS NEWS FOR YOU. WHEN TIME COMES, POSSIBLY YOU AND THAT CORRUPT, IRATE, KAVANAUGH, BOTH SHALL BE IMPEACHED TOGETHER.

  • But….it sure is costing a fortune that the little people will pay for, but more seriously, this kook president is causing fear, loss of admiration as the strong and free country! He
    Obviously has taken lessons from Putin in their private meetings, but he does not have Putin’s smarts to handle the people! He should go down in the History Books as a terrorist and self-serving hit job! We, the People have to draw out his selfish crimes if there is any hope of returning to a peaceful life on earth!

  • Mike Mayhaus Sr says:

    It is very satisfying to see trump and his groupys going down the tubes and into the swamp. I have been asking locally for those who made any effort to vote trump into office, it is there responsibility to make an effort to remove him, I didn't vote for him so why should I have to correct there incredible mistake for them. They can't deny he has to go, there is no defense of him unless your an enemy of the united states of America. Im so filled with joy happiness and relief that he is going to jail, no possible way he can avoid that and at his age its almost certain he will die in prison and he is so very deserving of this demise I

  • Donald Storm says:

    They must do impeachment hearings immediately tired of this crapp, Hillary Clinton is not president trump should not even be bringing up her name. But it's Time to round up all of these criminals and some of them are senators.

  • KILLAWATTS 804 says:

    All I know is Trump is in a world of trouble when he leaves office….should have stayed out of politics fool

  • Wrong…if tRump goes to the Supreme Court he might get a 5-4 protection. The new SCOTUS, especially Gorsuch, Thomas and Kavanaugh, will go against the Constitution and protect tRump.
    What goes around comes around, these same SCOTUS Judges will have to give liberties to democrat presidents. Yet I hope America never gets another POTUS like tRump!!

  • Under Trump's leadership America has become from a strong country to a very weak country
    Trump's lies ,corruption , dividing the country ,other countries can't believe a word America say's
    So many lie's from their president,Trump trying to work with dictators
    Trump telling the world his military leader's and his own cabinate don't know what their doing
    Trump is not a gift from GOD,Trump was sent by the antichrist, this is scary stuff for America
    America,with nobody in their Whitehouse but liar's and Trump family is scary stuff

  • All the conversations of democrat candidates reaching out to the republican voters is empty. Those that still support that party will never change. If they haven't seen the corruption, lawlessness, and soul less state of the leadership they are in a state of tribalism that will not be deterred. There are good people on both sides, it is the corruption of the leadership that must be attacked. We Americans should have the representation that our founding fathers stated as for the people, by the people. All good for all whether we are of this party or that.

  • In the mid-terms, Dem voters voted for Trump's head on a platter. Trump voters don't want that and Trump blocks and parries partisan moves on principle.

  • pig wood is POTUS because people could not abide HRC"S continuous swivel and Arsin. I am sure lots votes for Pig wood where against her. We could readily do without this evil wench's input.

  • Richard Dastrup says:

    Nancy Pelosi dementia . Maxine waters attack on President Donald Trump supporters . Chuck Schumer going behind the President back talking to Mexico President. Bernie Sanders threatens the President . Where I'm from Bernie should be in prison for 7 years. Corey Booker attacks men at the airport restrooms. If you ask me we need a new party. Not a party of hate. Democrats should be locked up they are not above the law.

  • It doesn't make any difference Congress don't have the STONES to enforce the law, if they did they have done something by now…. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

    Out of 362.8 million people in the United States… #270 Electorial College votes are what put Trump in office. Not a balanced vote ! Plus , our Electorial Colege was tampered with. Obviously ! We are going to see him re-elected. Because it's a broken lame system. No ones paying attention to the checks and balances. We are totally unbalanced! Transparency only happens with good. Brick walls are not transparency. They are wicked walls you can't get through !

  • Timothy Hallbeck says:

    What obstruction? You mean full access to all his emails, all his advisors including his kids, you mean publishing the Mueller report when it was not in any way required? You are a hateful buffon, and your ratings reflect that.

  • Kitty Barbieto says:

    PLEASE DON'T ASK GUESTS THAT SEEM CONFUSED ABOUT WHY REPUBLICANS REFUSE TO PASS LEGISLATION TO PROTECT OUR ELECTIONS ON YOUR SHOW!!! I am sooo tired of listening to pundits, candidates, politicians, express their shock and dismay when McConnell does something like squashing bills to safeguard our elections. Frankly I'm embarrassed that they show little to no insight into the motives. And I'm not even talking about McConnells donations from voting machine lobbyists When a group systematically debases themselves to support virtually EVERYTHING that this despot does, says, desires, including sexual exploitation of little girls, (oops, that last one is a mere accusation not yet proven) I don't think it's much of a stretch to see that these are not nice, moral, reasonable, or trustworthy people. Only thing missing in action is the clear assessment of the magnitude of the danger by these "slow in getting it guests".

  • no conspiracy no collusion and Mueller stated his investigation was not an interfere with or impeded in any way so what did Trump obstruct exactly since Mueller said his investigation was not interfere with what was it that Trump obstructed I'm still waiting

  • We're watching and hearing this man every day selling our country to whoever has enough money to put in his pocket then he's gone.But you have to think,where can he go????!!!!This is life not his dreams.

  • Because Donald Trump is so f**** criminal he was a criminal before he became president is it criminal not when he's president and he's going to be a criminal to the end of his days Donald Trump is a f**** a****

  • Who am I ? No one! says:

    1 and a 1/2 years is too long. Our democracy and safety will be over if they don't get him and pence out of office. We are finished. Obviously our Congress is corrupt and does not care about the American people , how we suffer and die. More die in mass shootings. The working poor have no hope. It's all falling down around us and government doesn't care. It's all rehtoric. He is a liar a cheat , totally immoral and we all know it. But Congress has no power. America now has a travel ban against it. Other International countries are telling the world not to come here to America , because it is to dangerous. Thanks Electorial College and also Congress for destroying America. We won't make it out of this administration. We are falling !!!!!!

  • stop crying. you people lost. he is your president get over it. economy is stronger then its ever been before , unemployment ALL TIME LOW , BLACK EMPOYMENT ALL TIME HIGH.

  • Mark Palluccio says:

    The Congress should begin fining anyone who refuses to comply with these sipesnas and with today's ruling these fines will be paid. Make the fines heavy and well served how quick most of the morons comply now. If they still refuse jail them for contempt

  • DESTROYING 33THOUSAND EMAILS IS OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE RIGHT CROOKED HILARY RIGHT,BENGHAZI AND SO MUCH MORE, THE FAKE PHONY CLINTON FOUNDATION OR PEDO FOUNDATION STEALING MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT NEVER WENT TO ANYBODY BUT U AND BILLY BOY EPSTEIN'S BEST FRIEND.OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE FOR ALL THE CRIMINAL CORRUPT DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS ABSOLUTELY

  • 3 YRS u LIED to your Viewers where's your apology Lying Corrupt Lawrence the deepstate will give u permission to apologise.

  • This position that Donald Trump is taking has proved he is guilty, he is guilty as sin and should be impeached as soon as possible by Congress!!!

  • LVT The Locker Room…
    WHO r u taking to? …or are u just practicing screen-play character driven writing skills…some of it's not bad

  • for decades every part of government including the courts has refused to act in good faith when it comes to poor people; Yuppies act somehow stunned that government now does this thing, to which we have allowed it to get used to doing. When you let someone else be abused it always ends in "and when they came for me"

  • Can the House hold McConnell accountable for his obstruction of the Obama administration? He has Not done the job we have paid him for. He owes the taxpayers his wages, plus prison time for saying he would not allow any of elected president Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nominees to the floor for a vote. Shameful and should be arrested.
