  1. BTW your inner cities are a reflection of your failed progressive policies over the years…. and The President Just pointed it out…. there's poverty because the demonrats have made it that way in their districts… stop voting for the same old people and maybe the people should do something too… stop blaming President Trump .
    He's not ignorant or a RACIST… stop with the RACISTS crap…

  2. Not our business Russian intervention in our elections that's our business one saudi kills another saudi the only place it's an issue is in the USA Saudis don't care why should we

  3. Donald trump’s negativity was fully on display in his inauguration speech. He hasn’t got any better, he just has more targets now. He is a deeply insecure and unhappy man and his only pleasure is demeaning and criticising others.

  4. Thank god there are good people like this who are still trying to get justice for Jamal Khashoggi! It goes so much deeper than one man, but bless him for doing what was hard and dangerous. The media is NOT the enemy of the people.

  5. Trump is the one that acts a traitor, ignoring or rather closing eyes yo the killing of Kashogi in order to sell the weapon at the expense of loss of US jobs and to get money in his hands, eventually the money going into his pockets as had happened in many instances before. The same way he did the businesses with Russia…all for his own gain of money. At the expense of American lives. The same way he did for North Korea at the expense of the young life of Otto. All of his acts are considered a violation of FCPA and OFAC. Why has the DOJ ignore such crimes?? Trump is a criminal!

  6. It’s funny the people that are licking trumps boots saying they are better than new Trump clones what’s the difference

  7. All of Trumoism and his cult actions are connected through money…Mcconnel – his wife who has done dirty bribery and violation of FCPA herself – Senate – the WH – Trump – money from Saudi and Russia – money from money laundering of Trump businesses – Trump family marketing frauds – Graham and Barr enjoyment of golf memberships – Russian money to Trump condos – Saudi money into Trump condos …. Endlless lists of money connections through all over the government and Trump family and corrupt congressmen…
    America a country of people is ending. Because of Trump's destructive and cowardly con-man selfish and greedy actions. He does not care about the American lives. He only cares for his money and his name. He wants to put his name all over the world, and he wants to make America a Crime-infested country, not MAGS but MAIC… He wanted to use the presidency to escape from the charges of his crimes depending on the DOJ Guideline, otherwise he should have been already indicted and sentenced to the prison!! And if he has to leave the office, he knows what is waiting for him. That is why he is now strengthening the attacks. When in fact he is a coward and only wants to escape from the legal consequences. Coward criminal, is he.

  8. I have someone in my life who is negative, even more than Trump {{{if you can imagine}}}, and it IS kind of like a trap. Our first impulse is to say something mean right back, but if we stay silent, how long can we do that with someone dropping stink bombs? It puts everybody in a bad mood. Then we unintentionally end up snapping at people totally uninvolved. Negativity breeds negativity and ripples throughout the lake. The ones closest to the epicenter rock the hardest. Those farther away have a better chance of enjoying their day. And sometines, those who abuse words were abused by other people. It's a learned behavior and hard to break. Some people wake up rotten, not even knowing why they feel that way. It's just hard bein a recipient bystander, especially if you feel you didn't provoke anything. It's hard to have a good day when those around you are complainy. Words can never hurt me, is easier said than done. At the end of the day, every person is revealed, not by words, but by their actions or inactions. Words are cheap, and everybody buys too many of them. :/ The scary thing is, people eventually become what they are constantly saying, whether they realize it, or not.

  9. Public lynchings again. Is that what's next Americans. Ugh! 💩 💩 💩
    Tell us again. When was America great? And you think caging kids will do it.

  10. And the Republican Party was the party of President Lincoln?
    I know that Pres. Lincoln
    Would be very disappointed in what their party has become . Trump has disappointed american people and we hear his stupid attacks and stupid rhetoric . Trump is uneducated on everything but on how to be a liar and criminal . Trump cannot debate the issues and deflect from the purpose of campaigning on issues instead of inciting and inviting the violence and rascism . Trump is more worried about ratings, crowd sizes, performances, lokks and himself . Trumps reality is a fake ..like him . Trump is fake man playing at being president and HAS ONCE AGAIN ..DESTROYED AND DIVIDED THE NATION .
    TRUMP IS "ONE TERM LOSER"!

  11. kudos Mika…I think it's time for some public shaming of Republicans who won't condemn the racism, public confrontation.

  12. Yes! Unfollow Trump on Twitter and other outlets. It’s our morbid fascination with his banality — The Apprentice, talk show appearances — that made us all complicit in his election, Russia-orchestrated or not

  13. Senator Murphy is spot on: Pig Trump is Flaming destruction, all of the Republican Senators are castrated traitorous collaborators. History will not be kind- WE STAND VIGILANT AGAINST THIS FASCIST IDEATION. MAKE NO MISTAKE.

  14. You're just now unfollowing him for negativity? This guy probably didn't figure out that Marcie was cheating on Dale Gribble until King of the Hill ended.

  15. The tweeting QUEEN 😈 PENITENTIARY impeached her him comedians making sure they'll be exposing how much orangutan fat boy What 😈 PALE kkkkkras 😈 border patrol and predators Repubikkkkkans. SOUTHWEST IS MEXICO INHUMANE 😈 Stolen from y'all Criminals presikklldent 😈SOUTHWEST I. The cartoon yallprresikkkkkkdent

  16. Like any politician he didn't answer the question. when are you going to PUBLICLY shame these spineless GOP cowards?

  17. trump and his criminal organisation are going to be arrested the day his term as potus ends, I'd be getting ready to make sure he can't slip out of the country before it can happen.

  18. Chris Murphy Democrat! Your party is responsible for our problems with our boarders. We don't want anyone from the OCA party, what a joke! How embarrassing, so much more to say but I'll let someone else attack!

  19. Did I Hear the Senator rite ? , Trump GAVE the PLANS of our Secret Military Weapons to the Saudis . . . . Because he didn't want the Congress to disapprove and stop it , or the Public to know about it ? ? ? so now they can make their own Weapons with our Intelectual Property ( isn't that the Reason why were having a Trade War with China due to China Stealing our " INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES " ) ? ? ? then he lies about it saying we will lose Jobs if the sale to them is Stopped ? ? ? , doesn't Congress have to APPROVE the Sale of our Weapons Technology ? ? ? to a Foreign Government prior ? ? ? Or its OK to Allowed # 45 to sell our Weapons Technology down the Sewer to Whoever he Wants in the World ,is this the way we Reward the Saudis for Murdering an American Journalist , ? ? ? if this Act isn't Treasonous I don't know what is . . . .the Parents of our Military Personnel better Pray that that Technology / Weapons are not used on our own Troops in Future Wars as I'm sure we will continue with these Endless Wars

  20. Trump is so obvious in wanting Ratcliff – his Trump "shouldn't be held below the law line was the ticket, and the absurd defense of a president that has degraded every "law" from political to moral to culturally. And remember, Trump is shallow – he's gotta like that this guy is right out of Madmen, a telegenic smooth talker business-looking white man in a fitted suit – a t.v. guy. Trump never read about "higher laws" never would know about Antigone or MLk for that matter, he likes that he looks good and defends his ignorance, which is "authentic" because we have a bumbling facist beholding to Putin, MBS, and all the other strong man bullies using him as a tool.

  21. Oh, Mika, you do have the power to do that. You're a cable news commentator, after all, not a journalist. Go for it! You can't do much more harm than you're already doing, subjecting us who watch MSM to the fascism of the con of Donald Trump, and the last gasp of white male privilege.

  22. Many more should follow senator murphy and unfollow president. News media should stop playing into presidents tweets

  23. I'm sure that someone MUST have mentioned this before and I apologise if that is the case but, from this side of the pond, it looks like President Liar is doing everything that Putin would want him to do if he were his handler. Alienating allies, cosying up to tyrants, splitting your country on every fault line he can think of and, most worrying of all, saddling the US with massive debt which will become unmanageable in a very short time. Don't dismiss the possiblilty of bankruptcy. It looks like Putin owns Liar. Surely not?!!

  24. Residents in Baltimore are in an uproar, and it's not about Trump, it's about Elijah Cummings' poor leadership and the conditions they are living in.

  25. What an astonishingly brave Democrat to make such an incredibly tough decision. He should certainly be considered for a position on one of the Democrat run committees or a commission to study racism next year, or at least during Trump's second term.

  26. Murphy is equivocating he will vote for Trumps Fox News propaganda minister and go along to get along with the doners!

  27. This congressperson has the right idea, Trump lives for attention. If everyone stopped following him across the board (of course, his supporters live for his rhetoric ao they are lost causes), it would at the very least allow space for independents and democrats to focus on the genuine issues at hand vs. his vile spillage. His crap is just that, misdirection and distraction. This would also allow thinking republican voters to hear the full story on democratic platforms and relevant issues vs. discourse fostered by attempting to address his every evil policy and thought.

  28. No security for the very thing that makes our nation great & a democracy: our elections. Putin destroyed the United States without killing anyone & he is pleased.

  29. All Presidents have to be far in bed with the Saudis, because without them, the Petrodollar is dead, and the Dollar would collapse. The Saudis have always been a feudal tyranny that practices medieval torture and arbitrary capital punishment. Trump is just the latest symptom of our country's moral cowardice and calculating opportunism. It's hard to believe that cynical evil could fail us now when it's served us so well thus far.

  30. You know the Obama's unfollowed and deleted all tweets concerning the Clintons recently. Tribunals are coming soon. Time to pay the Barr tab.

  31. Hold the Phone trump is selling the weapons technology to the Saudis? because of his business interests. America will then forever have the threat of the Saudis turning that tech back on us So Trump makes a buck that is TREASON ON the Action Block!

  32. Have you heard of free speech,Chris? Enjoy Trump. You have 5 1/2 more years
    until your ride aboard the Trump Train comes to an end.
    BTW, How is your 401K looking since Trump was elected? I am up 38%.Yes, 38%.

  33. I am sure Trump will have to go on suicide watch with such a luminary agent of wonderfulness unsubbing to his Twitter page. Oh my God, IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!!!

  34. Oh christ, is this what our leadership has come down to? "I unfollowed you on twitter! take that" …. c'mon….

  35. Murphy claims he is trying to "lift intelligence out of the political soup". He is fighting a losing battle, because there is no intelligence to lift.

  36. No one can control the white house toddler. Voting is easy now. Racist? Vote Donny diapers. All others vote sanity. #VOTEBLUE2020!!

  37. You're one of the few logical ones left in the congress, why would you follow such a fool anyway? Trump is an illigitamate potus placed in the nations WH! He is trully a domestic terrorist and he appears to love that position of bullying the world, as much as being a fake potus. Everytime he gives one of his instructional "speeches" to his worshippers somebody, somewhere loses their life, everytime, he goes on one of his racially laced hate rants several people loses their lives, each and everytime! He knows what he's doing and its purposefully scripted, choreographed for his reality sitcom he's starring in?

  38. President Trump called out Cummings and Baltimore. Now the good people of Baltimore are showing the rats, the garbage, and deteriorating neighborhood. I guess all those people are racists too (even though they're black).

  39. I think and many Americans should go to the Capitol like the movie v for vendetta mask and all and stand up with strength 💪 like our late Martin Luther and many others like him.

  40. Anyone— and that includes voters as well as republican politicians at all levels — anyone who supports trump, even with their silence, has to wear the mantle of racist, and bear the opprobrium it deserves. You cannot support and enable a racist and not BE a racist.

  41. Hey Murphy! What's so wrong with that?! I follow him for the giggles! Hypocrisy & etc. That's all! I liked your tweet! If you were Repub, I would bow down & kiss your feet!

  42. You see the best America has to offer, when you travel with its troops in other countries, where they are killing people. If that is America's best, then I hate to see their worst.

  43. It creeped me out when that orange clown started following me on Twitter so I dropped myself. Then I thought about it and came back a few days later. trump actually started following me again within minutes. I've seen many ppl say this clown blocks them when they oppose him. So I answer under another's commentary and I'm sure he gets to see it but, CAN'T block me.

  44. Rational people are opposed by imbeciles with losing arguments. These losers claim the opposition is racist.

  45. It's time to start reporting these videos for containing hateful speech, by calling the president of the United States racist, with no just reasons !!

  46. Donald Trump is proudly setting the ground work for his a race war campaign . Simply ignoring his intentionally egregious and disgusting racial attacks against ALL people of color isn't a solution. Impeaching him will !  It's time to flush this #HelterSkelterPresident down the toilet of this country !

  47. Okay, this is getting beyond embarrassing now… This is more like the point where a family has to get together to seriously discuss what to do about the Uncle with Alzheimer's who not only wanders around the neighborhood lost, he does it while naked and shrieking passages from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" while brandishing a three-iron at shocked passers-by. What must be done before he truly injures himself or someone else?

  48. OMG when are you people going to get that Saudi like all the other Gulf countries is a Kingdom where the King is the head and the right to rule is inherited. There is only one law and that is the King can do whatever, whenever.

  49. I do not see what the problem is when selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, not like they could use it against the USA one day, could they? Not like the USA trained Bin Laden or anything like that…so I don't see the problem at all.

  50. This president , his puppets and the republican party will go down in history as the worst 4 years ever held that put Amerikkka on blast

  51. Trump is so bent on supplying Saudi Arabia with weapons that I wonder, did he or Kushner tell Khashoggi "hey, yeah, you have nothing to worry about in Turkey."

  52. Trump,,is,a,Nazi,,🤪his,father,was,in,the,, Gestapo 🤪,he's,a,Nazi,,🤪then,his, party,are, Nazis🤪
