100 thoughts to “President Donald Trump’s Stunning Grip On The Republican Party | Deadline | MSNBC”

  1. Donald trump is evil to the core and now the Repugs are joining the evil The democrats are not Democrats

  2. Anger..fear..and hate…Hitler did the exact same thing..is Trump Hitler.? No he's not. But he's using the old fascist playbook step by step. It's disgusting.

  3. The news can be part of the problem at times by kept giving this corrupt WH communist too much attention with his divisiveness!

    We know this clown loves to talk to the media he calls fake news!

    This clown is starved for attention!

  4. I see much of the problem is that many whites in this country have gotten used to the white privilege mentality, and that's under threat by brown people!

  5. Go back to the 2008 election. Specifically a town hall in October of that year when a woman got up and said this to GOP presidential nominee John McCain: "I can't trust Obama. I have read about him and he's not… he's not… he's an Arab. And…" McCain grabbed the microphone back from the woman at that point while vigorously shaking his head "no." And he said this of then-Sen. Barack Obama: "He's a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. That's what this campaign is all about."
    McCain knew, instinctively, the message that would have been sent if he had let the woman keep talking or ignored her question after she finished asking it. McCain knew that even if the GOP base believed the idea that Obama was exotic and other, that might work for him politically, but he wasn't willing to win that way.
    Just more than a decade later, we have a President — and a party — willing to not only stoke and condone behavior along those same lines but then tell you that he didn't do what we all know he did.

  6. longtime conservative commentator George Will offered a stirring and stark assessment of what Donald Trump's presidency will mean for our politics and our culture.

    Here's the key bit:
    "I believe that what this president has done to our culture, to our civic discourse … you cannot unring these bells and you cannot unsay what he has said, and you cannot change that he has now in a very short time made it seem normal for schoolboy taunts and obvious lies to be spun out in a constant stream. I think this will do more lasting damage than Richard Nixon's surreptitious burglaries did."
    That's George Will, folks. Not Rachel Maddow. And it's George Will saying that what Trump is doing, has done and will do to — and with — the presidency is more destructive than the actions of a president who was forced to resign in order to keep from being impeached.

  7. Democrats should focus in combatting the economic impact of Trump's claim of the economic boom. There may be economic boom but at whose end – who got the economic benefits? How much the rich got richer and how much the working class got if ever they got any economic benefit…. The immigration issues that Trump is spitting out is just a distraction away from the real issues – his tax ivasion, enrichment of the rich and powerful through his tax policy, russian control of him, healthcare, among others.

  8. The americans should support fight on gerrymandering, this is very important..to set the fair rules of redistricting for fair election process.

  9. Professor Glaude, that was an inspiring, and refreshingly authentic plea to the core of good in everyone. Please run for office… https://youtu.be/Fwh7OPv0v2I?t=394 (6:34)

  10. All this is a deflection from Epstein and trumps own pedophilia. What’s the next deflection in the lead up to the election – war against Iran or Venezuela?

  11. This lady was focused so had on her teleprompter you could see it in her eye teflections😂😂. Ive heard of news bias and democratic propaganda schemes, but really now? He didnt attack anyone specifically, if you watch for ypuself he just states that if anyone doesnt agree with things Done in America for America to leave. Something people outside of political worlds who work for a living and arent living amongst the systems have been saying for years. Honestly if you ask me we should trade out every last one of the people who have spent more them 12 consecutive months using government money under the age pf 60 who are not in a wheelchair or something of that caliber. Switch them out for people who actually want to be contributing citizens of the united states and put forth the effort to make the country a better place. Msnbc, nbc, abc, all jokes

  12. I disagree He is a dictator a monster criminal.He was illegally voted in.The people I know can’t understand why he’s not in prison. The president should not be sheltered from prosecution.

  13. The whole world is watching Trump, and his Republican party.
    Wonder what this is going to do for US tourism, and all those that work directly or indirectly for it…..all those billions of dollars that are invested in it.
    Trump has all but destroyed relations with America's allies, has absolutely no interest in anything or anybody outside of America, and is clearly racist.
    He's alienating not only people of different races and religions in the US, but is alienating America itself.

  14. When he says send them back where they are from…..why cant he mean " where they come from in their DNA….?"" It is an old saying that is a waste of time and easy to define. This whole mess is silly and empty. The demagogue is winning.

  15. Trump was send by God………."TO DESTROY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY"……and the republicans don't even know it.

  16. I just wish someone in the media would have the guts to say the United States of America is loaded with racists.

  17. Isn't it a bit strange that everything 45 is campaigning against and/or promoting, are really close to his own home. Illegal immigration (Melania), Chain Migration (her parents), children of illegal immigrants born in the US (ALL of his kids), etc…….!!!!!

  18. This is about trump trying to solidify the worst members of his base … Dot dot dot …. The deplorables, so when he losses in 2020 he can whack the hornet's nest

  19. L M F A O ! so we have one of the lowest rated network media outlets in america. calling trump out for lies, LMFAO! MSNBC's ratings are bricking, lol… viewership is cratering… and here we have another "trump is bad and here is our panel of haters to prove it", lmfao!

  20. Trump is lying on these women. They never uttered what he said they did. Trump stole the last Elections. He cheated with the help of Russia. These four Congresswomen handsomely WON their districts honestly and fairly. Trump is squatting illigimately in the White House. He is an imposter and he has to return from whence he came.

  21. WE'VE GOT TO TAKE ON ILHANI OMAR'S AMERICA HATING DIATRIBES IN THE US CONGRESS. OTHERWISE….IT'S LIKE A CANCER THAT SLOWLY CONSUMES YOU.

  22. Fake Scripted Theatre…
    Fake Scripted Elections…
    Fake Scripted Puppet Actor Leaders Installed by the World Elite …

  23. I just bought this book for my Kindle last night- I always read reviews. Very favorable reviews from people who could vouch for many events in this book. I can't wait to get into it

  24. I still have coworkers that privately support him. They are too big of cowards to support him publicly

  25. DJT: "KICK HIM OUT!" "KICK HIM OUT!" "KICK HIM OUT!" Republican Party Boot-lickers: "BOOT THEM OUT!"
    "BOOT THEM OUT!" "BOOT THEM OUT!" VOTE

  26. I tell my children that I think Donald Trump is a bad person and was only elected because he was racist and dishonest. And every word of that is the truth.

  27. This is just rich dbags getting paid vast treasures of income to sit around in their bubble, talking about everything the Democratic Party should/must do to win, except for everything they actually NEED to do, to win.

    If you offer nothing, or promise but ultimately never deliver nothing to the voters except only what corporate donors want, then there will be another major loss for the DNC who should be used to this by now.

    The DNC has a fatal, self-imposed flaw from how THEY LITERALLY RIGGED THE 2016 PRIMARY & BLAMED THE VOTERS & anyone w/ no $ & no power. The Democratic Party would be unstoppable against Trump or the GOP entirely w/ Bernie Sanders at the helm.
    80% of the democratic voters want an uncorrupted Bernie Sanders to be president, & on his own terms, while the other 20% has a tv show somewhere trying to spit out the msg of their corporate masters

  28. Eddie Glaude is a very smart man! It is a cold civil war and that is incredibly disturbing. What a great interview 10/10

  29. I was in America and complained. They told me exactly the same words. I left. Best decision of my life. America is a giant pigsty.

  30. Trump's on to at least one thing: the 2020 election is going to be down to turn out, pure and simple. Whoever motivates their base the most stands the best (and really only) shot at winning. The Republicans have been indoctrinated into a cult of personality, one that appeals to the worst unreasoning instincts in people. Those on this panel believing anyone can deprogram Republicans into voting for them are perhaps nice people, but, are delusional fools, frankly. If the Dems want to have a shot, especially with the granular level of gerrymandering against them over the last two decades, they have to elect someone in the primary who not only appeals to their base, but gets them excited to do door-to-door get out the vote work unceasingly. Just my opinion.

  31. All we have to do is vote, but 61% won't cut it. trump's strongest demographic was non college educated white males…….this country will crush this administration if everyone votes, especially the groups of people that have been targeted. In 1908 we had a 65% turnout and it's never been higher since, but imagine a 70% voter turnout ? That would truly be the tsunami that washes this toxic circus out of the WH.

  32. Racist at it's best no questions ask And i'm not surprise he let his bad evil feelings out in public

  33. The prof is right. This what we see, was there all the time. Trump is simple echoing loudly what always lived in the hearts of most white Christians in the US. They used those who they want out of the country to get rich and now the can go. The US is pretty much like WWI Germany.

  34. Quit wining. President TRUMP is not a racist. He has not said anything that most are not thinking. He has just said if u dont like this country then u dont have to stay here. How is that being racist?

  35. The republicans are in bed with the russians

    34 years ago, a KGB defector chillingly predicted modern America [BigThink]
    https://bigthink.com/paul-ratner/34-years-ago-a-kgb-defector-described-america-today

    –In 1984, Bezmenov gave an interview to G. Edward Griffin from which much can be learned today. His most chilling point was that there's a long-term plan put in play by Russia to defeat America through psychological warfare and "demoralization". It's a long game that takes decades to achieve but it may already be bearing fruit.

    –Bezmenov made the point that the work of the KGB mainly does not involve espionage, despite what our popular culture may tell us. Most of the work, 85% of it, was "a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare."

    –What does that mean? Bezmenov explained that the most striking thing about ideological subversion is that it happens in the open as a legitimate process. "You can see it with your own eyes," he said. The American media would be able to see it, if it just focused on it.

    –Bezmenov described this process as "a great brainwashing" which has four basic stages.
    The first stage is called "demoralization" which takes from 15 to 20 years to achieve.
    According to the former KGB agent, that is the minimum number of years it takes to re-educate one generation of students that is normally exposed to the ideology of its country.

    –Bezmenov was also instructed not to waste time with idealistic leftists, they would become disillusioned, bitter, and adversarial when they realized the true nature of Soviet Communism. He discovered that many such were listed for execution once the Soviets achieved control.

    –Bezmenov was encouraged to recruit from large circulation, established conservative media, rich filmmakers, intellectuals, cynical and egocentric people who lacked moral principles.

    The Russians know exactly what kind of people Trump, the GOP, the Kochs their followers are.

    The whole process follows 4-steps:
    1. Demoralize a nation (15-20 years):Expose your ideology to your nation’s “soft heads”. At the higher stage, the citizens of that country start brainwashing their own countrymen. (The Tea Party and the Trump Supporters)
    2. Destabilization (2-5 years): does not care about your patterns. Essentials are attacked – Defense, Economy and Polity. (Trump,the GOP and the Kochs are attacking the US)
    3. Crisis (6 weeks): bring a country to crisis in such a way that violent change happens, which is followed by the next stage. (The Faux Southern Border crisis, North Korea Nukes, Trump followers creating civil war if Trump impeached)
    4. Normalization (infinite period): This is “tongue-in-cheek” and cynical. Because Normalization means adherence of the enemy country to your own ideology. The people who were instrumental in bringing the enemy country to this stage are “lined up against the wall and shot dead”.

  36. It is ironic that so many complain that congress does nothing, and when they try, the President pours the hate on them. He told them to go back and fix the problems, which in fact that is exactly what they are doing.

  37. If they had any courage, they'd be lining up to denounce him. But no, they're thinking of themselves before thinking of the country.

  38. all of islamics are a fifth column, designed to take over through infiltration of government and out breeding the white man….IGTFO

  39. these mouthy "pundits" are deluded and driven by hatred of the people's champion, "The Donald", loser dims are done for.

  40. People underestimate Trump, the Truth is that the democrats need to up their game and come up with a narrative that would 're unite the people and stop fighting him or responding his narrative. They need to brainstorm and put on their thinking caps.

  41. Pushing the word racism isn't the answer, they need a better strategy than that . Because this situation was played during the last election but Trump still won. CHANGE THE STRATEGY!!!

  42. Trump wants black peoples to leave America, but these black, brown people pays taxes, built his mansions, tax payers pays all these GPO salaries with all of our taxes, but we should leave right, GPO are hidings because of not losing salaries, shame on them .

  43. Give us a viable candidate to vote for! Clinton, Trump??? No more of those dividers. We want guides who have true knowledge of the paths away from racism, xenophobia, hatred.

  44. Trump is so hateful, that his chief of staff cough and he was disgusted, you can imagine black, brown people what he think of use, let vote Trump out .

  45. Your not a news media. You are a place for democratic propaganda no better than any used in Russia, Vietnam, Korea, China, etc. If you are going to play responses to something, then have the fortitude to show the whole statement of what they are replying to. Let everyone know the WHOLE UNEDITED statement of President Trump's. Not just your bias, stupid, lying summary of it.

  46. At 6:50 she asks how & why to questions that Bernie has already provided answers to. Over & over. Wake up

  47. Meanwhile, Trump says that refugees should stay home and make changes they want in their countries. That's exactly what we intend to do.

  48. The Republicans have become spineless because they’re self preserving. They don’t care if America suffers with their “ I see nothing, I heard nothing, and I do nothing” stance on serving Americans.

  49. tRump is a pitifull excuse of a human being. Every time that he opens his mouth the whole world can see how dumb and ignorant he is. What are you doing about stopping him? ”Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”-MLK- SPEAK UP! Don't allow bigotry and racism to invade our country!

  50. Trump is like a giant, slowly rotating, motor driven mechanical paddle that has been lowered into a tank of raw sewage so that all of the vile sludge that had settled to the bottom is dredged up to the surface and fully exposed for what it truly is.

  51. Quote"Leader of the free world" soon to be dictator of a suppressed world aka reincarnation of Hitler Mussolini Franco and all ultra right wing dictators who use the race card to create diversity

  52. It is absolutely undemocratic when a candidate has less of the popular vote but yet is victorious through the corrupt undemocratic electoral college system, therefore for Americans to boast they are a democracy beggars belief. ONE PERSON ONE VOTE IS TRUE DEMOCRACY. America under corrupt GOP control will never experience true democracy and the USA with the help of Russia is now in danger of creating the first neo fascist right wing conservative dictator in the WH

  53. Hey Russia if you are listening please inject Trump with an isotope then we will believe you did not intervene in the 2016 election and have no intention of interfering in the 2020 elections and maybe then sanctions could be lifted.

  54. Trump really has to go and he's a racist, no doubt. But I can't help but feel that this coverage is nothing more than a diversion from the real topics: Healthcare, a living wage, affordable college, etc. All mainstream media is guilty of that diversion including MSNBC. If they can get into power by way of cheap shame, and don't have to ante up to win our alliance, then that is what they'll do.

  55. Republiklans have kept the racist fire burning for decades now, their own fire is flaring more than some of them anticipated, but this monster belongs to them.

  56. First I want to say that I absolutely love her and work, one of the best out there. Second, I never realized how creepy the dead faces and blank stares the other guests do while they are being introduced. When the camera is in tight it looks normal but when they zoom out and you realize they are ALL looking in different cameras with a creepy blank stare it's like the upcoming book that Stephen King needs to write. You're welcome

  57. Tant qui'l existera par le fait des lois et des moare une damnation social creant arteficielement en pleine civilisation des enfers Victor Hugo

  58. Man this is intense.
    I got a friend who is claiming that this blatent racism is politically calculated… So it's not racist??? I have no fricking clue.

  59. We agree that Trump is brain washing people by telling them he can make them millionaires if they stand by him. GRAY ROCKING Donald Trump is how to defeat him. He is a narcissistic emotional vampire and thrives off of the energy, attention and emotion of others.  "Gray Rock is primarily a way of encouraging a psychopath, a stalker or other emotionally unbalanced person, to lose interest in you. Psychopaths are addicted to drama and they can't stand to be bored."
