  1. Hurd and the other retirees could do some good by staying in Congress and voting against the Trump fueled hate.

  2. I love Trump. He takes $1 salary per month and kicks all the million dollar Democrats who hate hate him. Can anyone please tell me who can take on Trump in 2020. I want to bet on the winner.

  3. We have great new Republican candidates coming up in the ranks. It's time for some of the weaker candidates to get out of way.

  4. This message to all Americans. The biggest enemy of the US are the Democrats who are secretly communication, conniving with China, Iran, N. Korea, with feelers, "do not make any agreement with Trump until 2020, where he will be out of office defeated by the democrats. Who are acting behalf for the democrats are John Kerry, Joe Biden son, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and all the US Ambassadors appointed by Obama. Why I write Democrats are the greatest enemy? There is an Arabic saying: "A enemy inside the house is thousand times dangerous, than a thousand enemies out the house." The Democrats have used every weapon to remove Trump from office inside America. You can read tens of thousands hate comments against Trump from inside America.from the democrats followers. Now you see N. Korea firing missiles again. Iran has taken another tanker. and China warning Trump we will never deal with you. That is enough for the democrats to tell Americans Trump foreign policy has failed since he took office and we want to take him out. The Arabs were right. The enemy inside the US is thousand times dangerous who want to sell to China. Don't believe the Democrats!

  5. Who or what "treats abortion as a sacrament"? That makes absolutely NO sense. It is an idiotic comment, besides.

  6. Please you got to see the video on YouTube titled
    Moscow Mitch The Musical by Bruce W. Nelson. 🤭🤭🤸🤸🤸🤸🚶🎱🚶🎱🚶🎱🚶🎱🚶🎱🙆💕🙆💕💕💕

  7. I said this over 2 years ago, Trump had taken the party completely withing 6 weeks !. The GOP is DEAD! there is only a Trump Cult of low IQ LOSER worshippers !. What i also promise is that almost all House and Senate Republicans will go to prison, including many of those who left at the 2018 midterms!.

  8. So sick of abortion being used as a main reason to vote republican, what is so hypocritical is that republicans are the ones who want to cut Medicaid that covers poor young women, they want to cut food stamps and help with housing, so life is only valuable in the womb, makes no sense, just as giving over a 100 Billion in taxpayer money to Corporations making huge profits, socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor.

  9. Trumpty Dumpty sat on his wall, Trumpty Dumpty had a big fall, all of Putin's spies and KGB men, couldn't get Trumpty elected again.

  10. Rino: A species threatened by extinction that is being preserved with all means necessary, deemed infinetly precious.
    Rich chavs hunt them for fun and prestige.

  11. Gosh Democrats are really getting desperate poor dears , these black people are really lost and shows how weak they are, Democrats use this word like a weapon, it's not working. Trump just gets rid of weak men like this guy another sewer rat gone they are weak and can't take it, The more they rubbish him the more they love him . l think Democrats are the people lost the only thing they can use is the word racist. Why are these people talking like children. This black woman is so weak, OMG talk about ugly that is funny coming from her, Don't be so Judgemental black people were as racist against white people when l was in America, Russia did it to Obama and he did nothing stop talking rubbish this is all propaganda. President Trump is the only one who can save America, Democrats have lost already they are fighting like cats and dogs.l ask you what a laugh they look,all the democrats sitting for President is weak and funny in it's self. They are all so lost they have to use this word racist which is killing them, most black people hate this using this race crap. You are making black people look so weak. Carry on you will loose Trump will win he is not a racist this is just a word means nothing. He is great we love it, no we love it you fool, just like you make Black people look weak, you can't do it to Trump supporters this is why he fills stadiums you dummies .

  12. These anti-abortion lunatics are NOT capable of rational discussion. DNA is NOT a human being, but I'm beginning to wonder if they qualify.

  13. This guy with his "High Priestess of abortion" comment. And then of course it wouldn't be a republican talking point if he didn't bring up the Clintons. What a clown.

  14. Morning, AMERICAN PEOPLE (?). WHAT IS WRING WITH THESE, UNFORTUNATELY, WHIT PEOPLE!!???. THEY REALLY WANT TO DESTROY, AMERICA. WOW!!!, THAT IS SICK, LITERALLY!!??

  15. As a 42 yr old blk wmn i walk the world differently now. I look at white ppl now. Wht pll cheering 4 ppl like me 2 go bk from were we come from is mind blowing. I never thought id c this ugliness again. Lets not 4get blk ppl were forced 2 b in this country. This country is built on the backs of immigrants. White ppl r crossing a line u wont b able 2 come bk from. This a dangerous stand 2 take up. It will not work out 4 u. Republicans u might want 2 think twice about there silence, about this issue, it comes off as if u agree with dumps racist feelings. Beware this will not b tolerated. We are not weak or stupid.

  16. Apathy on the left and voter ignorance and fickleness everywhere aren't being taken into account. Dems would never lose an election if they voted, which is why republicans cheat with voter suppression laws and gerrymandering districts. Fickle ignorant voters also create instability. Polls show, for instance, most voters want some form of universal healthcare. But when proposed voters can't connect the dots. Labels of "socialist" make voters' brains go "tilt", in that voters neither know what socialist is, nor what social democracies and social programs are, and how they differ from "socialism". So voters back off into their perspective corners of ignorance from whence they came, and/or decide not to vote because they don't understand anything.

  17. The vile, disgusting truth is; good Republicans have allowed Trump to use their mouths as condoms. Repulsive post? Really? Any worse than . . . https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/08/us/donald-trump-tape-transcript.amp.html

  18. Not exactly a crisis.They will be replaced by Republicans and not Democrats. Their replacements will be more loyal to the President and party…

  19. If there are a lot of Republicans cringing remind me again what is the popularity for Trump in the Republican party

  20. Jesus, can these people just stop focusing so much on Abortion. If all you give a flying crap about is "loving Jesus" and "dead babies" (which is not true, because we are talking about something that at that point is not capable of living without a parasitic relationship), find something else to care about! Seriously, all I ever hear from some people is how important god is to them…and then they put on a red baseball hat and go and praise a false idol (yes, I meant that, just that way… maybe Moses should smack you across the face with a few tablets and see if you head clears). I mean, really…if all you care about is getting Federalist Society-approved judges on the bench…you priorities REALLY need to be looked at. You are supporting a philandering tax-dodging narcissist because he puts judges on the court that want the country to be the way it was in the 1950s…maybe mid-1960s. You are hurting our country because you can't handle social change…stop hurting the rest of us because you can't deal with the changing world and culture around you.

  21. Ref flags? This is obviously what they want. They want less and less diversity in thought, word, skin tone, and gender. That's fine. Please commit demographic suicidw. So in your desperate attempt to maintain power you continue to resort to rigging the rules as well as flat out break them. So eventually the American public will see you for the con artists and corporate sellouts that cooperate with foreign powers, that you are. In the short term you may make gains, but your ineptitude (how's that repeal and replace for Obamacare going?) will always be your greatest shortcoming. So will the pendulum swings back hard against you, hope you learn embrace reality finally.

  22. Time to stand against him? LMAO
    Where were they in 2016?
    Where were they to primary against him in 2020?
    Where were they during the Mueller investigation?
    Where were they in votes against him?

    NO, they have enabled him time and time again in some short sighted acts of party fealty. Problem is they forgot their job to act as a check against executive excesses. So fine let Representative Token retire. Let less than a dozen women remain. The Grumpy Old People deserve that and more.

  23. So in order to win the presidency you must win the south? Are we the United States of America or United States of the South? If southerners can't let go of their racist views they don't deserve a say!!! Idiots like these people are the reason that the electorate exists!!!!

  24. Too much acquiesces to the base? Isn't the base the PEOPLE? What the fu$#?!! If this dude Represents decent Repsublicans thier party is DOOMED 🤣

  25. It was a good run, but I don't see the Republican brand surviving this. They will follow their predecessors, the WHIG party, into the dustbin of history. I wonder what the new conservative party that rises to take their place will call themselves? Maybe the Conservative Party.

  26. Yeah, and President Hindenburg appointed Hitler Chancellor and gave him arbitrary powers and then died. Kinda like the Republican Party is doing now.

  27. That old guy needs to retire….old white men are on the decline……abortion has been legal since 1975…….if people would just leave this to an individuals choice it would be fine. Those same people against it will not give a dime to the child that is born to a person who didn't want the child to begin with…….

  28. With all due respect to Mr. Inglis and his rather disingenuous assertion, there remains within the POT (Party of Trump formerly known as the GOP) principled conscientious conservatives who reject or oppose the deep pernicious cancer of racism within it.

    Mr. Inglis's comments are disturbingly reminiscent of rationalizations made by German officers at the Nuremberg trials after the end of WWII when confronted with the evidence of the atrocities of Hitler's infamous Final Solution.

    At every increasingly racist xenophobic tweet or public comment made by Mr. Trump, Mr. Inglis and his band of "conservatives" have responded with silent acquiescence. Mr. Trump just publicly embraced the racism which has been emblematic of the GOP for decades as recent revelations of former President Ronald Reagan's comments, the epitome of American "conservatism", attests.

  29. The "Grumpy old Party"? Traitorous, compulsively lying racists are described as "grumpy"? This panelist is trying to gas-light the audience. It's offensive.

  30. Saturday August 3, your presidents' rhetoric has come home to rooost in El Paso and Dayton. Grow some balls Repubs, stick around and defy him.

  31. Shame on Americans/ trump is a Godsend, the ugly truth about the country and people, that are racist is now on the world stage, in the near future, so called black Americans will have a strong case against the American government in the NATO's court..

  32. Why don't they stay and speak of their protest instead of quitting? Quitting is giving up, no courage, no fighting spirit. What would have happened if the builders of this nation quit? Let Trump know that you that WE THE PEOPLE DESERVE BETTER LEADERS IN THIS COUNTRY, WE DON'T WANT, WE DON'T NEED, LYING, NARCISSIST, INEPT, BIGOT IN THE WHITE HOUSE. GET OUT

  33. this abortion issue needs to be put to bed once and for all, the majority of the people want the 40 year old law left alone, move on and as far as the south goes; it is time for them to join in the 21st century. Republicans harp on this because it is all they have

  34. Dear MSNBC: While you're castigating tRump and the GOP why don't you take a few minutes to review your own media coverage of tRump during his candidacy during 2015/2016? He was every BIT as guilty and corrupt in the years leading up to the 2016 elections as he has been since the 2016 elections but for some reason, we never heard anything about those concerns BEFORE he got elected. Just imagine – if we HAD, perhaps he wouldn't have become the GOP candidate at all. What's YOUR responsibility for THAT? Be Honest.

  35. I'm not a Democrat, but I find the fascists republicans far more "extreme" than any Democrat I've ever seen or heard about!

    The right wing nut jobs are far worse than the Democrats!

    And, the Democrats are much more equipped and more experienced at running government!

    This is not just my opinion, but base on history, and they controlled the congress for nearly 40 years up until around 2004!

  36. Bunch of hypocrites on all sides. If you dig into Every Democrat or Republican past you're gonna find some sort of racist remark. To take it further apply the same to both black and white. Now get over it and move forward and quit labeling individuals for your agenda. All have been quilty noe go to work for what's good and right and quit casting stones.

  37. "Wild ideas!" LOL at this point helping regular Americans is a "wild idea"–Where did you get this old paradigm guy! Next!

  38. If you pay attention to who is leaving the GOP today, it's either career Republicans or young Republicans on their 1st, 2nd or 3rd term. In short, it's either old gray heads/retirees or new guys/gals who have barely dipped their toes in the political waters who are leaving thr party. The commentators are right, though. If Congressional Republicans are leaving and likely to be replaced by Democrats, they may never recover from Trumpiasm.

  39. They are leaving door open for more trump like goons to take over our country. Any one trump wants, WILL win, as long as they are lowlife criminals like him. After all, Russia is in charge of this country. They own trump.

  41. GOP duffus: It's a wild idea to give everyone healthcare like every other 1st world country. How crazy! He mentions small guvmint and then promotes banning abortions stripping women of their bodily autonomy. Can't get more big guvmint than that!

  42. Regardless, I am still going to look at all of them as racist and causing our country to be the laughing stock of the world. Rotten to the core. Obama said a change is coming🤔 TH? Did he know? Let me get Barrak on da phone rat now! 😁

  43. "The Original Clinton Chronicles" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCGW033-82c A documentary about the Bill & Hillary Clinton cocaine cartel, the witnesses they murdered (which include 5 teenage boys from Arkansas), Bill's cocaine-orgies w/Little Rock high school cheerleaders, and more. #DemExit #WalkAway #FuckMSNBC

  44. Did my ears actually hear the Republcan guy say that free enterprise can solve climate change???? Somebody better inform him that free enterprise if not having directly caused climate change has certainly kicked it into turbo!

  45. White always hated other people of color. Trump just fullfill what his ppl wanted to see. Blood of innocent ppl. And controllig other's. I waited for the day like this since i was born i'm 47 now. I knew it will come..

  46. Trump has ruined just about everything he touches including his own party. Who does that? The world is watching. HIs negative results are seen daily. How many more "retirements"?

  47. Describe it accurately… It’s tribalism more so than racism – an unfortunate human condition in modern life. We need wise leadership to see people past their worst behavior and perceptions.
