  • Chris– you can't have it both ways: (paraphrasing) 80% of Republicans approve of Rump and 65% of Americans will not vote for him this time. If we're going to chant anything, it should be:
    No more polls! No more polls!

  • No one ever claims Black children are "too Black" and have to be chased down with "Diversity."
    No one ever claims Asian children are "too Asian" and have to be chased down with "Diversity."
    But anti-Whites tell us that White children and ONLY White children are "too White" and must be chased down with "Diversity."
    Diversity means chasing down the last White child.
    Diversity is a codeword for White Genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  • Thank you for pointing this out to people who just aren't recognizing the seriousness of this situation Mr Reagan. We should be a very long way past being surprised, yet, Pelosi refuses to try to save America because her handlers are making money.

  • After witnessing Trump’s presidency, any fool who goes into private “business” with him or any other Trump family member and inevitably loses money, they deserve it. He only could ever make money from illegitimate scams, any legitimate business he’s ever attempted went bankrupt. So if you lose money going forward, it’s on you!

  • Some morning, when Trump is well rested, someone should explain that he could make a deal so that he would not be prosecuted after he left office if he simply agreed to resign. It's what Trump would consider a "win-win".

  • I agree with Ron, Trump is crazy because he's crazy! I don't care if he's scared, he's created his own reality. As a Canadian I don't understand why the Americans still haven't gotten rid of him. Grow some balls, people, he's creating havoc in every corner of the world!

  • Has anyone noticed this? It seems that the blonder trump dyes his hair, the crazier he gets and his hair is now neon yellow! The hair dye is affecting his already off the wall, crazy brain. He's completely nuts and not in a funny way. His hair is a hideous direct reflection of his mental health and it's screeming out "I'm crazy!!!" He has got to go! I don't care if he gets locked up in jail for all his con job crimes or in a mental institution, but he has got to go.

  • Blayze Is My Name says:

    Just think, within a week or so he will do or say something even more intensely stupid and we wont even think about this stuff. It never fails.

  • Trump should try to stop worrying. With his (alleged) wealth and status as an ex-President, after he leaves office he will be well looked after, even as he continues his slide into la-la land. There will be people to feed him, to change his nappy and wipe his botty, to bathe him, to tell him what day it is and what the weather is like outside. He will still be able to enjoy his fast foods, even if some have to be pureed for him. He can still pretend to drive trucks and go "toot-toot". In his mind he can play golf whenever and imagine winning every game without cheating. Imagine that! When he lies, no-one will attempt to fact check him, they will just say "sure, Donald, sure". It is likely that some of his dwindling fan base and other crazies will send him birthday cards and make pretend he is still needed. His paid carer's will still call him 'sir', at least to his face. His family will visit him even when he no longer remembers them. When the time comes he will be given a lovely funeral, perhaps with a tiny model helicopter put next to him in his coffin for company. Although it is most unlikely he will rise from death on the third day, he won't know about it anyway. In the meantime there is so much for him to look forward to e.g. watching TV and Twittering-away right up until he is put to bed. There will be a nice plaque erected in his honor at Mar-a-Lago, depicting him eating a slice of their b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l chocolate cake. He won't be forgotten for at least several years. And a new, better President will have the task of making America great again.

  • Trump is barking as loud as he can to his base "I am the savior you hoped I would be. I'm not politically correct at all. Re-elect me!" He's pathetic and dangerous and doesn't give a cr*p about this country or the American people.

  • Logikael Impakt Senzory Overload says:

    This really has nothing to do with politics anymore. He's a very poor figurehead who misrepresents the face of our nation. Ethically, he's morally reprehensible driving us so far back through the stone ages via tactical repetition devices centered around key words designed to incite fringe society – that there won't be ANY making way for social evolution. Problem being the poliferation of fringe mentality is taking place at such a rapid rate, Johhny BeNormal next door is now filled with violent bigotry. It becomes near impossible to deal with on any interpersonal level as the individual has been subject to a particular targeted form of psychological abuse. He's a mentally ill Self Help book for the mentally ill.

  • Tracey Edwards says:

    When someone lies constantly it’s no doubt they implode after they’ve been caught or just run out of steam it’s going to be ugly soon but then once he’s gone we’ll be able to be sane again….. the Republicans look like nothing but a bunch of clowns, just like Moscow Mitch. Boooo Republicans!!!

  • Michael Schwartz says:

    Spanky thinks our press is mean?! Good luck when Denmark sics Lars Von f$*%!n$ Trier on your ugly a$$. I hope he goes full "Antichrist"

  • Dancing With Nature says:

    trump reminds me of a more horrifying version of the old Charlie Chaplin film, 'The Dictator'. Eewww, creeps me out!

  • I console myself with the knowledge that when this circus of an administration end's Trump will be forever in fear that "this might be the day"

  • fried spaghetti says:

    Time to fly Marine 1 by remote. Hate to lose any decent pilots or aircrew in the event of a “tragic” accident.

  • He's freaking out because he knows that time is running out on him being in the wh and the orange jumpsuit is around the corner!!!!! Impeach, imprison the orange baby!!!!

  • What else do you expect from a two year old? He's (Trump) gotten away with everything else he's fuked up, and now Mr baby wants more!

  • Ronnie Hopkins says:

    Is this what America wont in the white house can America get of the bull and vote this man out I don't have hate in my heart for trump it just time for him toe go like yesterday America I say again if you give a dam put trump out

  • This Failing Administration an President are reaching the Wall , an of course fellow Redumbicans are still mute…All TWIT SCARED. VOTE HIM OUT!

  • Terrence Vergauwen says:

    5:51 Why is melania wearing sunglasses at night ??? Is she a reptilian invader from the 80's TV series "V" ??? She sure looks like it 😉

  • We have monikers like 'Moscow Mitch' and 'Sleepy Joe', is trump creating his own one now 'Crazy trump' or are there more memorable ones out there?

  • Amy Estep-Lake says:

    The King of Israel The Chosen One God's Returned to Earth.
    Anyone who said any of this and a cop heard them would be taken to the ER have a tox screen done and psych evaluation. He's not mentally ill he's legally insane. He has shown this many times before but after this he's proven he's insane.

  • Oh please shut up! This network is the most hypocritical network there is! On one side they say Trump is destroyer of democracy and on the other side they support Democrats who support the terrorist regime of Iran that tortures and executes anyone who is against it!!!

  • Ronnie Hopkins says:

    All trump was looking to say he was in the white house from the white to the black any other races it is need to end you can talk trash about me but from my heart I am not race's I love America for life the people need better can we as one people stand together and take back our country as one people one country under God

  • Time for Capital One (the bank) to make a few more Viking commercials with the Donald making a guest appearance. Might be the most entertaining thing on TV.

  • trump is a narcissistic sociopath with psychopathic tendencies. he is behaving as expected, unfortunately. his behavior is becoming worse now because he has gotten some actual power, with no director behind the scenes to yell cut, etc.

  • Pay attention, they are here trying to make us fight, don't let them win, remember what Mueller said, Every America Needs To Pay Attention, Pray for ALL

  • This mullah's regime that this network supports, not only tortures and executes people, it also tortures and executes DOGS BY INJECTING ACID INTO THEIR HEARTS AND LEGS! The killings of dogs were ordered by the Mayors on different cities! PLEASE SEE THE KIND GOVERNMENT THIS NETWORK AND DEMOCRATS SUPPORT! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWhYE7qiB0I

  • Dumpy Trump sat on his Mexican wall,
    Dumpy Trump made the NASDAC fall,
    All of Putin's forces and his MAGA Cult,
    Couldn't get Dumpy Trump elected President again.

  • In 2009 millions of Iranian people poured into the streets of Tehran, Iran, and shouted: "Obama: are with us the people of Iran, or with them, the regime of Islamic mullahs." BARACK HOSSEIN OBAMA THE WINNER OF NOBLE PEACE PRICE NOT ONLY DID NOT LISTEN TO THE MILLIONS OF IRANIAN PEOPLE, HE WROTE LETTERS TO THE MURDERER IN CHIEF AND THE TERRORIST IN CHIEF, dismissing the Iranian people! HOW DARE YOU SHOW YOURSELVES AND DEMOCRATS AS SUPPORTERS OF DEMOCRACY?!

  • Fidel loved the long speech, as did Khrushchev—the ex-leader of the Soviet Union, for you young’uns—and now trump is giving it a try.
    NK has its “Dear Leader”. The US has our “Weird Tweeter”.

  • The real Donny Trump is emerging, his false bravado facade is crumbling, he doesn't act presidential because he literally doesn't know how. And I said it before, he's only going to get worse!!!!

  • he can not be charged with a crime if he is in office so he will remain for as long as he is able … when he does go, his 'I am insane' act will see him rushed to a private hospital, already organised by his children, and he will still be able to avoid prosecution because of insanity… he will see out his days being waited on hand and foot and will retire from public life and hide from the eyes of those who do not believe his lie of insanity.

  • Luc Préfontaine says:

    Put an incompetent unable to admit his lack of abilities in charge of a job for which he's outmatched in every aspect.
    How do you expect this to end ? In flames obviously. Hopefully not like Rome 🤣🤣🤣

  • musicmaster101 says:

    Please help me understand why anyone would vote for this volatile angry man …the economy always has ups and downs so this doesn't fly

  • When are they going to report on all these AMERICAN BORN RACIST WHITE AMERICAN MASS SHOOTERS KILLING INNOCENT CIVILIANS

  • Jacqueline Quinne says:

    As for Reagan's son, he knows the smell of the political stink as his parents visited many times the GROVE, where they all rolled in the secret stink of each other for the secret to being held for generations of the cover-up! Perhaps that is why Ron jr doesn't believe in anyone or thing on this beautiful Earth, and the blessings of having a paid homes and trust fund for his entire life!
