  1. POTUS TRUMP is the greatest POTUS that will transform the world and remake US into a brightest star~nation! Give him another 4years and US will become Super great again!

  2. I believe you I just don’t care. I feel for the people in Hong Kong to protect their democracy but that’s between them and China. We already have waaaay to many conflicts and shouldn’t be looking for another

  3. I love her show. But honestly the impotence of our government to police itself is really depressing. What a house of cards.

  4. If Congress doesn't get the Great Trumpkin indicted on his numerous violations of the emoluments clause, and his failure to uphold his oath of office, it won't be because his subtlety hid his intentions so well that they missed the signs…..

  5. He and his dad have the same pose. I don't know if he thinks this makes him look smart or successful or what but it only makes him look stupid

  6. Indonesia is the most populous Islamic country in the world. I wonder if these morons have heard about Trump's Muslim ban? They are all as stupid as each other and my god do they ever deserve each other. I'm not sure who are more moronic, Trumpists or religionists. It's close!

  7. the shamefull thing is (WE THE PEOPLE) dont cumin together and march against the raping our county's morality ,our jobs, the blatant dishonesty of our government officials ,the lies of the wealthy to continue wars in our names. americans (the world) must stop these few who are destroying life itself.

  8. So…the 3-year-long Russian conspiracy theory bit Rachel in the azz. Hmmm…what to do? Muh China! Heh. That some people are being duped by Rachel is saddening.

  9. So would it have been better if he said he wants the people of Hong Kong to bathe in the blood of the Chinese people because it seems to me saying he wants everything to work out for both sides is a pretty reasonable response but then again I dont have a show on MSNBC so I dont know

  10. No wonder the people of Russia wanted to vote Putin out, ten cities made in 1987 you bet they are radioactivity when it is normal for citizens run out to get iodine to off set radioactive poising.
    Now our President gives them both a free pass on controlling population by force?

  11. So, the Chinese last defeated a significant enemy in…? Sure, they are good at attacking unarmed civilians and maybe at standing over their poorly armed neighbors but as for fighting a real war…

  12. So while tRuMp has degraded all in this country China has been organized planning and building up there credibility on all things China! The fall of America is closer then u think? Maget supporters have now been officially confirmed as …. used up no good ….CONNED leftovers 😆 because that's what con artists do. Chew u up and spit u out😝

  13. It is to late to vote this dump out, the players have all been in place since day one! Do u really think voting rights and polling places are protected…… sadly this has been planned and is now being shown as if we are the FOOLS just by the flaunting of their abuse of power as the new norm.

  14. Like how Rachel maddow talks about the Chinese military against protestors ….like that’s never happened in America ….hypocrites

  15. His Tariffs with China hurts American… buuuuut he gets paid from and use state owned co. of China!…not to mention Ivanka's coziness with China contract deals.

  16. unless the people of Hong Kong utilize Martin Luther King's strategy of nonviolent protest they will be massacred, and trump `inc. will find a way to profit from it

  17. He only cares about money.
    A ‘Bridge’ to China, and Her Family’s Business, in the Trump Cabinet
    Elaine Chao has boosted the profile of her family’s shipping company, which benefits from industrial policies in China that are roiling the Trump administration.😡
    ELIZABETH WARREN 2020
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  18. This is all the Chinese and Russian army can do. Be used against civilians and weak countries. America didn't even Show HALF of what the American militarz could do during the Gulf War.

  19. Dear Rachel. Often love to see your show. Now this one is over the top. Violent rioting is confronted with police force anywhere. Also in New York. Showing capability from Chinese side is to show their patience. The demands of protesters are as coherent as a sugar pile. They would be wiser to demonstrate calmly over a longer period of time and formulate a concrete wishlist and the go into dialogue. All these so-called Chinese troops can not hold 20% of Hong Kong. So they are useless for that.

  20. China: Entrenched in Corrupt Communist Aristocracy . HONG KONG is fantastic and the TRUE face of China. The delusional trump junior is a reptilian fool. GHASTLY.

  21. This is why we have the 2nd amendment MSNBC NOT FOR HUNTING. The poor China people in Hongkon don't have chance and if you incompetent people don't understand history and can't believe this can happen here you're fools

  22. We in N. America may have to prepare to absorb the Chinese freedom fighters who manage to escape from Hong Kong. The good news is that they are generally hard workers and good at creating successful businesses that feeds the local economies.

  23. Be it China or USA, our governments are being run by the 1%. Our corrupt government officials are their puppets, being rewarded financially for doing the 1% dirt. God be with the pro democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong

  24. Which person who is independently and legally wealthy would want to come to Trump's America? Great move, Ken. Moronic understudy to trump.

  25. What is Trump gonna do if China’s army storms into HK batons flying!!… Probably jerking it, wishing he could do this in San Francisco or Chicago…

  26. You better.get.ready Trump is going to start a war
    . Trump is the man of darkness
    Trump is just a man . He is evil
    The man of sin. Why is every one afraid of him.
    He is the ANITICHRIST think about it befor it's to late

  27. The Chinese army along with the Russian army North Korea army if all four countries invaded America America wouldn’t stand a chance

  28. I hope folks in HK stay strong and don't back down. Their democratic freedoms are worth fighting for. The CCP and its corrupt authoritarian regime needs to fall. Just don't expect any support from the current US administration. While I don't with agree with Rachel Maddow when it comes to her general support for corporate Democrats, I do appreciate her in-depth analysis of the connections and context. It always comes down to greed and corruption. In Trump's case it adds yet another layer as he just loves authoritarian governments and tin-pot dictators. It is nice to see that some folks in Russia are now also seeming to push back against Putin's self-serving regime. That takes a lot of courage as those who oppose Putin tend to disappear just like folks in mainland China who oppose the CCP. I do hope that all those who are brave enough to stand up for what is right keep doing so and will eventually succeed in bringing about lasting democratic change.

  29. Black men and women here in the United States and children can tell the unharmed Chinese people how it feels to be targeted buy your government and local police smfh 🧐

  30. The ONLY thing, the only real thing, that can save us now LOVE! Love is kind, is peaceable, blames not, accuses not, is longsuffering, it is pure, it is genial! ONLY LOVE can save us now. One sure Love is the love of God! If you love him, he will never leave you or forsake you! His love, through The Christ, can save us all! Please read the Book of Acts(The acts of the apostles) in the New Testament to find out how to reach this selfless love of God.

  31. I knew from start that Trump's tariff BS was to get more from China. They paid $500 for his other real state project last year but he wanted more. And now he is getting it.

    This crime family will pay but the real criminals are the ones that voted for and STILL support this racist criminal orange traitor.

  32. America will NEVER forget that the white supremacy Republican voters, aka the descendants of Confederacy, aka THE DEPLORABLE, cause this massive decline and shame for America. SOON!!!

  33. He sold his soul to the Devil. Why are we surprised? He only wants money, power and pledges of unwavering, undying, fall on your face obedience, loyalty and glorious, spontaneous adoration and worship (reminds me of another of God's creation, the Father of all Liars, Satan, himself.)

  34. I hope they place this totally useless 'Real Estate Project' right by an active Volcano that erupts as soon as it's done.

  35. Once all this stupidity is over and every Trump supporter is asked about this type of obviously corrupt activity, the refrain they'll use is either, "Yeah, but where are the 33,000 emails," or "How could anyone have known."

  36. this is what happens when you actively avoid teaching your children about that one time you ran over a dude with a tank.

  37. well rest assured if Xi goes too far with the protestors Tronny D will give him a stern talking to. A stern talking to and a tounge lashing should force the despot to change his awful ways concerning Hong Kong.

    And if you belive that I got some great, cheap property in Miami for sale. Just send me a check and youll be pool side in Miami for cheap.

    Really its a sad state of affairs our country seems to be in: politicians, authorities and the media all pitting us fellow Muricans against each other, trying to redirect our attention from the actual real problems that matter. And all the while our real problems are not talked about, not discussed because the powers that be wanna deflect responsibility and accountability away from where it should be focused.

    The media and the government are all just parts in the infernal machine that it is Murica today. They pit us against each other so that we wont pay attention to the fact that they get richer and richer and amass more power while the placated masses get poorer and have less and less rights and power.

    Really its diabolical genius to redirect the masses anger this way, especially the gulliable uneducated white people of this country. Evil but genius. The ignorant simpletons of our country have been throughly duped by the whole scam, and because most dont wanna admit they got suckered for fear of being stupid, they double down on the belief of the lie. Because the economy is good and theres now a white guy in the white house, uneducated whites shouldnt have any qualms.Yet notice they do? And what are those qualms? The machine make them up for them. Muslims, immigrants, democrats, anything besides the real actual problems that are really holding them back: lack of financial and educational opportunities. They get poorer while the rich get richer…..But instead of blaming those actually responsible for these inequalities these simpletons take their cue from the infernal machine and blame immigrants, blacks anybody they can for their problems instead of the actual culprit……Well how exactly can an immigrant mowing your lawn or building your house be responsible for your lack of education or opportunity? How exactly is it their fault that the rich get richer all while they squeeze everyone else out? How is it a Central American immigrant, who lives on a dollar day, fault?

    It's really sad to see how throughly both the government and the media seem to be failing and adding to the problems instead of helping. Instead of being the oversight of the government the media is supposed to be it becomes its enabler. The media is meant to hold the powerful in the the government accountable.
    Not as a tool to spead social disharmony amongst its most gullible, ignorant and impressionable citizens!

  38. open production line and manufactory
    help farming system and land process
    the education centre, school, university
    hospital
    training centre to teach people to find a job
    housing
    remove the weapons from the market
    help the people need
    international marketing

  39. Why doesn't the emoluments clause apply to this POTUS?Teflon Don the con screws America whilst lining his pockets.

  40. Profiting from power is not new to gov just Trump is blatantly the fox-in-the-hen-house who isn't hiding stuff and maybe he wants revenge on a crooked system that bankrupt him then hearing Obama call gov corruption just Asleep at the Wheel…

  41. @ Rachel Maddow, there is nothing spontaneous about the protests in Russia and Hong Kong, It's all organised and financed by the CIA, to create turmoil in those countries. be honest for once and admit it.protest for democracy? there is more democracy in Russia and China than in the US Congress and Senate, they aren't controlled by the Israeli lobby.

  42. They are simply schmoozing. They think if they get the tramp name on anything they will have a place in the country. Clearly a conflict of interest and should not to go forward what Trump is in office
