    Mueller didn't work ! impeachment part 1 didn't work ! Race baiting didn't work ! RUSSIA didn't work ! and now the Ukraine .The Democrats can't run on anything but their hatred for Trump can't run on the economy, can't run on unemployment , can't run on security , can't run on defending free speech . Next they'll advocate for conflict with your neighbors because you voted a way they didn't like .

    it's sad. after obama shows the world how kind and compasionate americans can be, then come trumps that do a complete 360. This sounds racists but it seems like they represent the blacks and whites perfectly.

    Please. He set up this "whistleblower" as a stunt to embarrass Dems and media. Just another scheme by the gaggle of manipulative crooks propping this orange goon up.

    Tramp claims that he doesn't know the whistleblower yet he concludes that he is a partisan.

    This guy needs to be impeached.

    Somehow I had a feeling the msm would leave that part out of their nightly clips to frame this ridiculous narrative no one but idiots is buying anymore.
    This is another reason no one trusts you. Selective editing. The full presser is online 😏

    I gave up trying to have a meaningful conversation with any trump supporter. These people are intentionally wearing horse blinders, miserable and living a hate-filled meaningless life and wants everyone else to experience their misery. How can anyone not see what is happening to this country every single day?

      So explain to me what's happening since you're so smart. Things are going pretty good here in Tennessee, I think you guys are blinded by the media, sitting around listening to all these lies instead of using your own eyes to look around and see that the grass is still green and the sky is still blue. Liberals act as if the world is ending. Shut up, go to work, make yourself some money instead of looking for a hand out and life will get better for you.

      My feeling at this time after everything he has said and done is: Those that still support him, "think" just like him. That is sad and scary, because I have also seen friends and relatives still be behind him.

    Trump is doing his own Mueller report on Biden. Sounds perfectly fair. But Biden can't win in 2020. He is already on the road to senility. Trump should use extreme caution.

    While Democrats keep losing and desperately make mistake after mistake Trump keeps winning and makes good move after good move....and after 3 years they still haven't worked it out..... Just imagine how much more America would have if the loosing Dems actually worked with the President to improve America instead of doing all they can to slander Trump at Americas expense....Why would you vote for the Dems after they have repeatedly shown they would rather harm America in order to make Trump look bad, especially after 3 years of repeated efforts which have not worked against Trump.

    • electro1622

      gb032645... No.. I mean like in the 2016 Presidential election.... you know, the one CNN, MSNBC, and all the rest of the fake news media that guaranteed Crooked Hillary would win in a landslide, you know, the Election which you lost and then you lay in the fetal position on the ground yelling NOOOOO like the rest of your nancy boy and man hating feminist friends... that's the one I mean, the important one, the one that lets him govern over YOU.....MAGA, TRUMP 2020.

      Salb Wild Bunch actually no it’s not, while Mexico has a still failing government the United States still has a running government with the biggest economy, military, and GDP in the world, where the unemployment rates are the lowest they have ever been for minorities and women, the economy is booming more than it ever did during Obama and yet trump doesn’t get the credit for the left media

      If the president doesn't have to cooperate with investigations involving himself then no one has to cooperate in investigations that he demands. Conservatives are liars who have zero moral standing anyway.

      If he truly did something wrong, within his capacity as the P, than he should be.
      A Ukraine story like this is more plausable than any Russian collusion delusion. He has a gang of lawyers to keep him from making a serious mis step.
      To quote someone, however (because joe bidens son or w/e did have ties to ukranians) *"at this point, what difference does it make????"*

      Excellent point, @Patricia roe. This is an unprecedented situation and cleaning up after it may take a very long time, and the seeds of blight Trump has planted may be an ongoing problem. If he ends up at the end of a rope, that's fine with me.

      @Jim Burig He crossed the line - with the majority of people in this country. It's over for him and his cronies, he just doesn't know it yet. Once he's out of office, he'll be fair game to the SDNY - who he's been giving the finger to for years.

    • Patricia roe
      Patricia roe 25 days ago +1

      Every time I think Pelosi may be right about voting him out instead of impeachment. Something new comes up. He is very detrimental in being a bad influence to the well being of this country and will never serve a good purpose. But he is not the only problem. While no-one is paying attention, there have been 170 Federal Judges put in place and 35 more pending Senate confirmation. They in the long run may do more damage than Trump will do while he is in.
