  • I bet Trump has Putin on a Ear Piece, telling him what to say minute by minute. Even if not literally that's essentially the case.

  • INDONESIA IS MOVING IT'S CAPITAL CITY JAKARTA……AS THE USA CONTINUES TO DEBATE THE REALISM OF CLIMATE CHANGE. SUPER POOR LEADERSHIP…..

  • Once again msnbc lying to push their agenda. Notice this month its his health and last month it was Russia, and remember when msnbc was saying Hillary was going to win in 2016?! If you pay close attention you will see its made up twisted information trying to keep Trump down. but even they cant keep him from winning again in 2020. How many times will it take for you ''msnbc cnn '' watchers to realize its all twisted information and you're being lied too?! PAY CLOSER ATTENTION TO THE WORDS / INFO. learn something for once….all lies!

  • Stephen Robinson says:

    PMSDNS is the deep state propaganda machine that you sheep willingly eat it up because their lies fit right into your narrative and your narrow minds

  • Crazytown.
    America, welcome to the world of full-blown Malignant Narcissism. This is how they operate, keeping everyone off-balance, normal people reacting with incredulity to lie after lie, as if there is sense to be made of this madness.
    Jeb Bush: "He is a chaos candidate, and he will be a chaos president."

  • Sharon Bodimeade says:

    He should be denied the right to run for 2020. In fact the only right he should have is to “ go straight to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $300”. Part of his melt down is probably because he knows there are many court dates waiting for him once his presidency is over

  • America is babysitting an unfit, fake, notorious president. DT is like a 6 year old boy, when you don’t give what he wants, he’ll do his tantrums to the fullest. GOP are spoiling this narcissistic fraud, greedy and boastful orange-hair conman.

  • Michael Flower says:

    Or Donald Trump is doing his best Vincent "the Chin" Gigante imitation in order to stay out of prison after the 2020 Presidential Election…

  • Just a point of interest – the soy beans from Brazil that the USA is buying are farmed on land that was once Amazonian rainforest.
    Buy local, support a farmer.

  • So what is being done to remove him? How many benefit from the situation (in particular in the GOP)? Why are they silent? What's going on??

  • It’ll be funny if the next Summit becomes a G2, just the US and Russia, with the rest of the members boycotting with a “no show”. 😂😂😂

  • G6 plus one should go to planB and go to a different country, if not refuse to go to his golf coarse, they must be able to do that

  • Trump could not do any of this alone. The entire GOP establishment puts party before country. TRUMP IS SENILE BUT THE GOP WILL PROTECT HIM FOR AS LONG AS HE GIVES THEM POWER.
    Expect the GOP professional political operators come out post 2020 and distance themselves from dirty Donald. Americans should never forget that Moscow Mitch et al made all this possible.
    The entire GOP must be destroyed because their next candidate for dictator might actually be competent

  • Iridescent ink says:

    "The chosen one" to crash the global markets and leave America wide open to take it up the behind. It's like he loves America so much he has to destroy it with himself.

  • Another day chasing its own tail on Trump being crazy and useless. This is lazy programming.
    WE KNOW!! THIS ISNT NEWS!!
    Please cover actual news – stuff we didn't know!

  • AnotherButt 4chair says:

    In order to save any shred of credibility for the USA, Trump needs to voluntarily resign. If Trump had any shred of decency he would resign tomorrow morning. But he wont, instead this criminal minded con man would rather see our nation deeply divided. The damage will outlive this madman for generations.

  • The fact is : in the G7 we saw the world has moved on from American leadership. They really moved on! As long as trump is there clearly America is out…

  • Someone needs to tell Nicole Wallace and her best buddy Joe Biden that no one around the world has looked at America for leadership, since probably the first Iraq war in the early 90s.
    The USA has been a deteriorating shithole country since way back then.
    Civics, education, healthcare, economics, environmental policies: everyone who wants to move in the right direction follows Scandinavian countries.
    America? Give me a break. It's a shithole wrapped in a fat joke.

  • So well said.. what will it take for this white president who is sleeping with multiple enemies to get removed and shut up. If it were Obama or another colored individual they would have been lynched already! White privilege at it's best..

  • Its been obvious for ever that Trump is a lunatic. This is a continued distraction from main issues: Climate change, inequality, poverty, healthcare, education. The Amazon is burning to extinction! We have 11 years to save the planet. Lets get to the REAL concerns and stop feeding the narcissism of the most shameful, disastrous president in history.

  • Bestoink Dooley says:

    And NO, China did not phone call during the night asking to make a deal, as he claimed. He lied! The Chinese said WTF? As climate becomes a more serious issue all the time, he didn't even bother to attend the climate meeting, even as Siberia and the Amazon are burning. This ignorant, deranged fool has to go a.s.a.p. 16 more months left! He can still do a lot of damage before we can get rid of him. If we're "lucky" Gump will just leave us with a nasty recession and not start a war too. Sheesh.

  • girlfriendofnone says:

    As an outsider – looking in. It so seems, that Trump is on his knees for Kim Jong Un – begging to be let in. Clearly he wants to be remembered in history as the 'great' leader who made peace with North Korea. We all know it'll never happen. As a matter of fact: it's likely Trump is jealous and would loooove to BE Kim Jong Un. If anyone will bring America down, it'll be him. He's crazy enough to start a war – just because his ego dosn't match his actual p size. God bless America and Good luck!

  • MARGIE DANIELS says:

    When you are a RACIST, you don't care about the lies you tell on the person you hate! When you know that you are INADEQUATE, you are always looking for a way to shine, even if it's a lie. #DUMPTRUMP

  • Trump is looking forward to corporate America buying up all the foreclosed farms. He don't care about anyone who's not rich

  • We've reached the limit. It's all insane! In the end, the Reps in the Senate let it all happen out of greed. The WH Mafia Nazi Pervert & his cronies need to go. Pelosi, however, lets him get away with everything. No impeachment = support. Shame on you Pelosi, Schumer etc.

  • I say, leave trump in office until he can be voted out. If the article 25 is used, and he is relieved of duty, then there's Pence, who is a zealot. Then there will be a theocracy. The US will be no better than Saudi Arabia, just a different religion. Get rid of both!!

  • Why do you guys say that Joe Biden is the front runner why do you guys lie about that why don’t you guys start tell the hole truth

  • I do not understand why reporters let 45 tell his lies. Why ask him these questions in the first place, while you know he's going to lie? Don't ask him questions. Just ignore him. You don't have to ask him anything. The media are keeping the lies coming!

    The best moment in all 45's time in the WH was during his trip to Dayton and El Paso. You weren't allowed to come along and 45 realised afterwards that he needed you. And sadly, there you all went again. Don't! Just don't!

  • TRUMP IS A BAD/DARK GEMINI
    The Good and Bad Twin

    Most Geminis are cheerful, tactful, enthusiastic, versatile, fun and witty social beings. However, all astrological signs can be expressed in positive, negative, or dark ways. Gemini is no different. All Geminis display a duality of sorts.

    The Dark Side of a Gemini

    Moody, Irresponsible, Inconsistent, Untrustworthy, Gossipy and Quick-tempered

    However, if a Gemini goes to their darkest side they can become erratic, unstable, and volatile. At their worst, they can have garden variety sociopathic and bipolar-like traits, which can lead others to think they might be suffering from a mental illness.

    The Dark Twin

    Geminis tend to intellectualize their emotions, but a dark Gemini has difficulty empathizing with other people or understanding the emotional consequences of their actions. They tend to act without regard for others and feel no guilt or remorse. It's this lack of empathy that leads to all of Gemini's darkest traits.

    Manipulators

    Though a dark Gemini lacks empathy they are capable of mimicking emotions and manipulating others by appearing friendly, charming, and caring.

    Compulsive Liars

    Dark Geminis are compulsive liars. They will stretch the truth, exaggerate, talk trash, and outright lie. Even if everyone knows what they are saying is a lie they'll disregard the truth if the lie makes them look better or gets them what they want.

    Back Stabbers

    A dark Gemini will compliment you to your face and then turn around and whisper something foul behind your back. Rub them the wrong way and you can be sure they'll have something cheeky or negative to say about you. They may even lie and spread false rumors about you.

    Impulsive Behavior

    A Dark Gemini can turn on a dime and impulsively say or do anything they feel is expedient to the moment, even if it's cruel, reckless, improper or immoral.

    Create Chaos

    A dark Gemini plays games with a lot of different people at the same time and creates chaotic interpersonal interactions. They'll doublespeak, tell you one thing and someone else another, and play one person against another. Generally, they have fun toying with people to set up dramas.

    When Do the Dark Traits Appear?

    A dark Gemini has a grandiose self-image, wants the approval of others and is very cocky. Criticize, ignore, or show them any kind of disapproval and they go ballistic and begin acting out to prove they are brightest and best. The more they are criticized or ignored the more manic and grandiose their behavior becomes.

    Can a Dark Gemini Change?

    Alternative therapies like yoga, exercise, and guided meditative strategies can help by reducing anxiety and stress. Psychotherapy could help. However, a Gemini who has gone to the dark side usually won't seek help or take advice from others because in their mind they're "all- knowing."

    How to Deal With a Dark Gemini

    If a Gemini expresses negative traits you can talk to them and they'll usually try to change their behavior. But if a Gemini reveals the dark traits above, they'll behave quite differently. Try to talk to or change a dark Gemini's behavior and they'll feel criticized and will only get worse. If you believe you're dealing with the worst kind of Gemini, it's best not to trust or believe anything they say and quickly run for the door. https://horoscopes.lovetoknow.com/astrology-signs-personality/dark-side-gemini

  • Theynsee him lie constantly, when he speaks its raciat or the markets crash. His stupidity and incompetence are on display 24 hours 365…

    And still there are people who are will vote for him no matter what.

  • This is so painful. When people started saying how they can't wait for Pres. Obama to leave, I KNEW it was going to be bad. On election night of 2016, it was like watching the blood gush out of the elevators in the movie "The Shining" as the states lit up RED. I was stunned for MANY reasons but… Here's someone that has NOT "SERVED" in any real capacity of government that is now going to be The President? But because too many people woke up realizing we had a man of color in the office… (At some point it really sank in) they'd rather cut off their nose to spite their faces and so here we are. SAD 🙁

  • Georg Helpenstein-Michels says:

    if you guys would have a sensible voting process that could not be influenced by your own politicians (gerrymandering), by your CEO´s (Supreme Court decision) your educational system (stupidity, while this might be a worldwide problem) and a lot of other mind blowing undemocratic procedures, you would not have this problem with a narcissistic clown in the oval office in the first place. As much as I, as a German, admire your country and a lot of citizens you have, these reactionary ways of public life are mind blowing, the times of shining beacon of the free world seem to be a distant memory of the "good old times"

  • The country doesn't want Biden not sure why the media keeps pushing him on us. Dude wants to work with racist. Biden is Republican light

  • I'm certain that Republicans hate Obama so much because of the colour of his skin, some voters have admitted as much that that motivated them to go out and give the controls of the country to quite possibly the worst con man on the planet.

  • Maria Hinojosa appears rambling and unprepared here and her constant use of "like" made her sound juvenile. Otherwise, good discussion, good panel.

  • Economics by the creator of Trump University? Yip, it doesn't take much to realise that the biggest Con in USA history happened

  • As a Brit living and working in Spain, I have only come across one person over the last three years that has spoken up for Trump! Most people aren't as obsessed as me and think he's just a bit of a nut job, but the ones that are into American/World politics think he's a total disaster!
    The one constant in American politics was even bad POTUS's have listened to advice, shown respect for the office, put the country first, not been so obviously racist, not been self obsessed and basically been a grown up! This constant is no more, there is a mad man in the Whitehouse!

  • I have an easy answer: he's trying hard to not be president again, but nothing is bad enough to get him arrested or thrown out…. they just "clean up" after him. He's had this power for years, he's either getting bored or getting senile…..

  • all of those countries that offer great health care to their citizens for about a 16
    % tax on citizens wages and employers so that employers do not have to deal with it. amazing how that works. this is why drugs are so much cheaper every where else in the major countries in this world than the USA. Drug prices are negotiated for all. With 600 million strong insulin would be 10 bux. Why are the politicians in this country siding with health insurance and big pharma? I can guess, because they make them very wealthy for helping them rob us and keeping good health care out of the country.

  • While President Trump is bashing President Obama regarding Russia and Crimea, I cant help to guess what the other Members of the G-7 must be thinking, knowing the real truth!

  • Do you notice how Nicolle is still trying to figure out why a pathological liar is lying…. even if the lie doesn't benefit him. And you think she's the only one that does this? (No!)

  • Nikki Hurst-Bergheger says:

    Neutrality in not your job. Objectivity (TRUTH) is your job… true journalism. Just because you dont like the truth, doesnt make it any less the truth. Stop playing establishment political games & tell the TRUTH!

  • What Trump is doing by saying he has these non-existent trade deals is to setup the narrative that they are responsible for breaking the trade deal, rather than him for starting the trade war!

  • kathlene stafford says:

    Trump would love to become our dictator… he seems to be doing it rather than Putin America best interest to the table.. I always ask what is trump making from it for his personnel gain

  • JOSHUA ANDERSON says:

    Fake fake fake news! Some real reporting would be nice rather than the constant extreme left-wing propaganda. This would be more believable if they reported fair and balanced. But, NO! They are a constant hate Trump smear machine. Trump is not perfect and I would never claim that he is perfect. There are plenty of things he does that irritate the crap out of me. I just don't know how anyone could finish watching an hour of any of the shows without regurgitating their last meal. It's about as fake as watching pro wrestling. When was the last time they criticized a Democrat? Aside from the last 3-4 months, when Joe Biden and the rest of the clan announced their presidential bid, there have been no criticisms of Democrats. And the only reason they are criticizing "certain" Democrats now is that they have an establishment agenda so they need to prop up their chosen one. Sick.

    Tim Pool's channels are the only ones I found that will give it to you straight with an in-depth analysis that includes verifiable facts.

  • Eugenio Colussi filho says:

    DON'T TELL ME THAT THIS OBAMA'S BLAMING IS NOT RACE BASED THE DEEDS OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA IS WHAT HURTS TRUMP THE MOST.

  • karthika murugan says:

    I didn't know republicans were such commie lovers. Imagine it was a democratic president. These hypocrites would have lynched rest of us. Shame.

  • Funny what he hasn't said is How Much Melania & Ivanka like gazing at Trudeau when in his presence! Pretty sure that's why Melanie had to skip last year's event in Canada hmm

  • Freedom Speech says:

    Let’s not get all crazy about the China trade war. It’s about time that China stops owning our company item secrets for cheap labor. However, Trump needs to see that there’s other countries that can produce these items. But if we want to give Americans jobs, then we must buckle up and start paying the value that our items deserve but NOT WITHOUT THE INCREASE TO THE MINIMUM WAGE.

  • There is a very good explanation for Trump's behavior and inability to remember what he said 20 minutes ago on stage. Donald Trump has signs of Alzheimer's. Where in the world is the White House physician? Once Trump has been diagnosed, he cannot legally enter in legal agreements. He would have a hard time even being nominated.

  • Idiots. (these reporters with their spin takes)

    People stop listening to what reporters have to say, and start actually listening to your president when he speaks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_golxhw_eo&t=5s

    on the Russia topic: Haven't you ever heard, 'Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer'?
    Our president Trump knows what he is doing. It serves no purpose to have Putin alienated.

  • Putin is losing patience. He’s telling Trump to get it done soon or else. Trump has done a couple of things already, like weakening the NATO alliance, destroying US credibility, dividing the Americans, sow distrust in the American system … but he’s still not finishing his tasks fast enough!

  • QuantumFairing says:

    Sad to see how America turned their back on Europe. I live in Norway and know for a fact that Russia just moved nuclear weapons to our border, while Donald Trump is licking Putin from behind.

  • You know what… what if… Mueller really found something, Bill Barr actually tried to get it to go away, so trump would get reelected, congress wouldn't be able to get his tax returns with a second term for trump giving trump 4 more years to hide his business and payoffs by russians. GOP doesn't like Trump but they like his policies, so they let him continue. meanwhile putin parties 4 years long terrorizing neighboring countries with annoying crap like flying over nuclear bomb throwers over our territory.

  • Nicole Wallace is such a charismatic host. Well studied for every show, asks some of the best questions anywhere in news reporting and has excellent guests and contributors. And she's beautiful on top of it all!
