  • Michael Baughman says:

    All I can say is:
    May his office be empty
    May an other take his place
    May his wife be a widow
    May his children be ophans
    The Book of Psalms
    The Holy Bible.
    When Obama was President I had GOID CHRISTIAN friends who were told to pray thus about President Obama. To me turn about is fair play.

  • Fear (and the empathy it kills) is what separates the right from the left.

    Let's be honest, no amount or size of Great Walls, or military spending, or nuclear arsenal, or non US soil military bases and ops, or international weapons sales, or personal weapons and magazine sizes, or of school teachers with guns, or of privatized, militarized and systemically racist police and mass incarceration, or of mass deportations including the Dreamers, or of bans of entire groups of people, or torture of immigrant children as a deterrent, or threats to shoot rock-throwing refugees, or torture of POWs, or control over women, or Space Farces, or anything else will ever Make American Republicans Feel Safe enough… American Republican fear is historically extraordinary and virtually limitless! Fear (and the empathy and critical thought it kills) is what separates the right from the left. #NationalEmergency #DeportMeToo #BanMeToo

  • I'm not an American, I don't live in the US and don't have political affiliation with either Republicans or Democrats, so I can look at the picture with a non bias approach, focused solely on the values I grew up with and basic knowledge of politics. What I see is a person who is not fit to occupy the highest office chair in US politics, and therefore the world. He seems dishonest, deceiving, ill intended, ignorant of basic facts, has no empathy, can't speak coherently, has no political and social skills, and is a pathological liar. Now, you watch some of Fox Channel videos and none of this seems to come up to the viewers, jornalists, pundits and hosts. It's like a complete different game altogether.

    How can it be? Oh, and I apologize for my broken English.

  • I m glad the submarines of Russia are not as "large and powerful" as the American ones.
    …"Just look at those hands"…. I guess…😊

  • Trump's answers to legitimate question makes my head spin. He's like a three year old trying to explain quantum physics and this joker is the president of the united states. Truly unbelievable

  • I didn't like the idea of "Vote Blue No Matter Who," but the more I listen to this slimy POS, the more it grows on me.
    If you you're a true Patriot – you'll not only VOTE, you'll take a group of people to the polls with you for this one. We have to drain this very REAL swamp next year!!
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • Crypto money team says:

    This guy is the most entertaining President ever. This gives me so much laughter watching cnn and msnbc news and the Trump supporters go back and fourth. Trump will go down as the most comedic President ever lol. By the way im from UK and this is absolutely jokes to watch.

  • Kenneth Greifer says:

    I talked to a Trump supporter who said that he voted for him because he is not part of the establishment and he knows that he doesn't know anything, and that is why he likes him. That is what makes him better because he is not part of the system that they see as bad. All of this actually won't affect his supporters because most of them don't understand the same issues he misunderstands and they don't watch the news or any criticism of him. The more he is criticized, the more they like him.

  • "Limitless Ignorance"….. tRump to a tee…..The G6 are Thankful that sumit is over, I'll bet. Next year, just put donnie at the childrens table. SO Embarrassing, truly.

  • Omg How can Trump say that Crimea was taken away from Obama? Are you guys in the USA stupid too in keeping this stupid man as president?

  • This is what happens when half of the American voting population voted for and currently supports a pompous big mouthed unintelligent reality star personality! They adore him because he is not a politician, but a businessman. (An historically failed one at that) It really makes you wonder how America functions at all. Lol. Donald Trump has absolutely no business running one of the greatest nations on our planet. You would think by now he would have learned to be somewhat presidential, oh no….His obscene lack of knowledge and increasing ignorance worsens with every passing day.

  • Baskirk Brecher says:

    So the rainforest burns because farmers there are expanding their land for cows and soybeans. China struck a trade deal with brazil. So our farmers permanently lost a massive trade partner. All the aforementioned facets stem from the trump tariffs.

  • I don't think normal people any longer doubt that Mr. Trump suffers from megalomania as a part of sociopathy. It would be wrong to talk bad about his beautiful family because of their father's problematic outburst, cause they can certainly not help that their father has problems, so please, don't do that.

  • How deep can a president sink? Trump is surely breaking every record. It's terrible that USA has elected this "what ever" for beeing their president. How is that proverb again?….The people get the leader they deserve.

  • It's time to put a progressive in the white house. Vote for Bernie if you want the human race and this country to have any chance of surviving and prospering.

  • "Or whatever" means war. War between the US & NATO against Russia. It was the only solution possible to not intervene. So Trump´s words are ricicuülous. In the other hand he should ask himself why he´s always cozying up to Putin.

  • That reporter should have said "Crimson" instead of Crimea to watch him repeatedly use the wrong word in his mumbling response..

  • I'm sorry to say there are still a large swath of Americans that still want him in office. There are darker days to come.

  • Progressive Humanist says:

    45* suffers from dysphasia, brought about by a low IQ coupled with crippling dementia. He's unfit to play Scrabble, much less run a nation!

  • Philosopher of Nonsense says:

    "Who knew presidenting was so complicated?"
    So we know it's illegal, Trump is violating the law while in office, we know he is a moron that is destroying the country out of his incompetence, so when do we do something about it? We can't wait for 2020, we may not make it to then at this rate. Impeach the clown!

  • Cynthia Hawkins says:

    People in 45's inner circle and entities surrounding/supporting him, remain scared for their jobs. They'll shrug, knuckle under or, just wimp out. Wow. When history judges this embarrassment of a leader, it will also judge the people around him. And..those who did nothing when they were called upon to speak out, push back or to act will also have Trump manure on THEIR shoes. Ugh…

  • The right whatever…. the thingy! The item! The dingleboop! The Hafnarhacklepotspurdungheepmonkeywrenchwhatever…!
    Seriously, someone put this moron on the moon or " something ", cause this is just a tragedy now.

  • Cynthia Hawkins says:

    (3:01)..and Oh before I forget..WHAT IS WITH THAT 'AIR ACCORDION' HE KEEPS PLAYING?? Joe Cocker must be spinning in his grave….

  • Hello Lawrence, perhaps the WH journalists could ask him “the right whatever” he is doing to retrieve Crimea from his best buddy ?

  • It’s amazing to me and l,m sure many others why trade an tariffs have to be explain over and over again to Americans DUH?

  • Jeremiah Bachmann says:

    If they are illegal, then why are they still around? We all know that many things that used to be against the law are now legal for him to do. Get with the program…tRump and his ilk are above the law.

  • As a child I learned that anyone could be the president of the US even yourself. But I never thought of it in a negative way like this. Anyone can grow up and be the president. Even Trump. 😖😭😫😡😲😟

  • Lawrence was actually pretty kind here to 45 when he said an oral exam for a PhD. If a High Schooler used the term " right whatever" they'd fail. At least it seems the rest of the world knows he doesn't properly represent the American public.

  • 8:03 Why does McDonald Tantrum'p think a submarine is shaped like a voluptuous woman? Does he actually know what either is? Does he sometimes confuse them? I can see him wanting to take a ride under the waves on Kim Kardashian.

  • This is someone who claims to have a degree in economics and brags about running businesses shows he has no clue what he is talking about. Trump has no business running this country– shamefully ignorant and arrogant.

  • Thomas Muscheck says:

    Doesn't deserve respect from anybody. Give him same respect he gives everyone else. SHOULD BE BOILED IN OIL WITH THOSE DESPICABLE RACIST WHITE LADIES WHO LOVE HIM. Make him take off his underwear.

  • Think Logically says:

    "Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness." – George Washington
    The G.O.Pigshit PUTIN-OWNED Republican Party being in power for so long in Congress became that licentious, arbitrary power because they do not believe in America's democracy.
    They can't govern, so they want to rule. The worst of it is is that PUTIN OWNS that TRAITOROUS party now, and he's the one who'll be the ruler of WE the PEOPLE. America, the newest SHITHOLE country.

  • Just look at Trump's face and demeanor, obviously the man is sick physically and mentally. It's been a tragedy that such a person is allowed to run the United States, the greatest military on earth. A catastrophy is waiting to happen, please take the nuclear option away from him before it's too late.

  • Who agrees that he forgot the word "Syria " and few others.
    Even his life. It's vocabulary was not fully present.
    He's not only tired, it old, or incult Trump is unwell.

  • Wasn't he looking like a scared chicken in that video? Probably the demons of the 2016 election he colluded with are catching up with him (or whoever and whatever)

  • All the good presidents faced the assassin's attack, the corrupt presidents don't get that opportunity to meet their maker !

  • Trump is scrambling to find a way to blame the Democrats for the republican tariffs enforced by the Trump administration !

  • joris suffuhrt says:

    and still 83% of the republicans suport this moron. What is wrong with this picture. They cannot all be stupid. There is another reason for that. Try and find that reason on the estate called Journalism. It is you the cable networks that are causing this partisanship. And you let yourself be painted in the corner by the breitbarts (and all the other fringe media) of the world. MSNBC,CNN and all the others, do something. Attack FOX.

  • Trump was never fit to serve in an administration in any capacity and it was blatantly obvious to everyone yet the trumplicans nominated him anyway. The Republican party is dead. Thoughts and prayers.

  • The stable genius feels no shame. He does not recognize the concept of self-awareness and continues to spout embarrassing statements in his attempt to demean others, not realizing they only reflect on his weak character. Woke people see his flaws clearly.

  • Trump is sick in the head. He needs to focus on his job as a president and stop blaming President Obama. He promised that he alone can fix it.

  • Actually, what he does know, is that Europe fought a war over it against Russia for two and a half years between 1853 and 1856, known as the Crimean war. It's knowing stuff like that, that is keeping him in his presidency and even got him it. He's a wideboy and using what he knows to get him things and to places. Golf course in Scotland? Buy it on the land that Scotland and England are supposed to have had a battle on. Trump's list goes on, but maybe you'd have to have a good knowledge of a lot of things to know that some of the things he says are what he uses as his insurance. More and more to me, he's proving that whoever is the American president is just the front man, the face, and you've got a team of a whole load of other people who are really calling the shots. He's just making it sound like you're at war with everyone, everything is a battle, it's all about one up man ship, only America, (not it's people), matters, no one is allowed to have anything bigger or better than America, blah, blah, blah, America has to win everything, America is happy to tread all over other people and countries, America thinks the human race is an actual race, it's not, the human race in this context just means all the populations of people on the planet. It's a collective description not a competition.

  • Trump has a diploma for kindergarten that is actually happened,all the rest Fred Trump paid off he didn't want a Dork six foot tall third grader!

  • Donny has been learning good, he has the alphabet down pat right up to the letter "L". Soon he will be able to string a sentence together.

  • Doesn't he know , that he uses phrases that are nonsensical and uses the same superlatives that phoney people use. He's not even good at using this snake oil salesman type language.
    He's been phoney his whole life, so it comes out naturally, it's obvious to some, wake up trump voters. If you support him you are just as phoney

    I'm not an American citizen, but literally each and every American I know personally, work relations and friends, would be fitter for the job. Really, what is wrong with your electoral system?
