  1. If the G7 Summit wasn't important enough for him to attend that meeting…they shouldn't waste their money paying to stay at his privately owned resort. It's unconstitutional…so why is the White House allowed to announce that is where the next summit will be held? To the World Leaders, do yourselves a favor, and convene in another appropriate location in the U.S..

  2. There is a little tiny problems, most evangelicals desire the world to end!! because of the rapture and hope a bearded mid eastern dude takes them to another dimension in a white horse somewhere over the rainbow and all that nonsense, the problem is than cadet bonespurs listen to them and try to please them!

  3. Oh Rachel Madcow, what would you have to talk about if Trump wasn't president? Fact is half the liberal media outlets would be out of work!

  4. This POTUS speaks like a chronic "Bar Fly"! He sounds like the loud mouthed drunk who has reached his one too many drink limit!!!

  5. I’m so tired of politics being a game. I wish Face The Nation was still a thing. A one on one with the head of state to directly question certain policies and leadership. Maybe then his supporters could see how unprofessional and unqualified he is….

  6. I love the report about the black hole bc it suggest all the republicans lost theirs in it. As they support the president.

  7. Trump is a liar and a cheat. That is his way of getting through life with his lower IQ. Money helps too. Keep calling him out with his lies! Watch how he profits from all of this and throw the book at him.

  8. He's just become so used to lying whenever he feels like it the history of his professional life, that he's not used to people actually trying to verify what he says.

  9. The 'cleaners' are at it again! Trying to clean up Donald's most recent episode of diarrhoea – sorry, I meant verbal diarrhoea. This geriatric confuses me at times. I never know which end it is coming out of at any given time. But the 'cleaners' always seem to know as they always have mops and pails handy. Trouble is they often make a bigger mess, and this has to be cleaned up as well. But worst of all are the times when they are busy cleaning up one mess and the President is busy making another. This often creates a dilemma for them. So how do they deal with it. They lie. They simply say that this is not the President 's poo because it is the wrong colour. So whose poo is it? Perhaps Obama's or Hillary's. And when you corner them, they sheepishly mutter that they know it smells bad but it's not really poo. It really is an exotic stew from a country which they will not name because it would be rude to do so. When you point out that their explanation does not measure up to the facts as you can see them they shuffle off muttering something about " alternative facts " "alternative " truth and complaining quite audibly that when Obama was in power nobody ever made so much fuss over his poo.

  10. To be fair, buying territory from other nations isn't unheard of. We bought Alaska from Russia and roughly one third of the continental U.S. (most of the area between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains) from France. Of course, Denmark isn't in the cash strapped predicament that a prolonged, European continental war engaged, Napoleon led, France or a Russian monarchy trying to quickly jump from the past and modernize itself on par with a Europe that had been gorging itself on colonial wealth streams for centuries, found themselves in at the times they sold. Obviously, there wasn't any need for Denmark to sell at this time. But , who knows? If the price was right, they might say yes. It sounds like he may have gave an insultingly low offer, which resulted in the description of it being "absurd". Oranges McSnowFlake's response of backing out of the visit in response to the response is the most absurd part of the story, no question…

  11. He lies every time he opens his mouth. Why does anybody listen to him and believe him? He's putting on a show. He's pretending to be president.

  12. And….Think about his poor (sic) Wife….just imagine what she has to go through, before climbing into bed with him 🙂

  13. LOL, after three years this guy finally shut up about "collusion". Ratings tanked afterwards and yet here they are… still talking about Trump. The irony is that they need him for any worthwhile ratings 😂

  14. he is the choosen one; he is the second coming of……families separator;, father less kids creator; an insane wall, why is he still a presidente…..ignorant and bigot people are going to vote for him next term….; america is watching powerless

  15. Well its not like he has to try anymore. with the Federal election commission gone, who cares what the public thinks?

  16. Oh yeah ,you and your network said it so it must be so.The Russians,Koreans ,Chinese should study our "free press"and see firsthand how delusionally closed and unfree it actually is.Theyre not stupid.They already know.Even most Americans now know it to be a failed human experiment.For the most part the only people that believe in it are those that actually work in it.I'd believe in it too if I received a paycheck every week and hung out in that pompous echo chamber.MSNBC is news for perpetual 22 year olds.Maddow is smart in NYC.But that is hardly the world.Or even the country.Her narrative is always garbage.

  17. Msnbc. This is teaching people to be a bully . Grow up. Everyone has their own opinion about the president, but cutting feeds and making a snide comment is immature and childish. Please be a leader and report the news without bias.

  18. If the G7 next year is at the bedbug failing Doral( 67 percent Ernie drop in past 2Years), we will know corruption reigns unchecked in this government..

  19. As a prisoner of Florida.. we really hope Florida breaks off and floats away…
    Just turn around if your thinking of coming this way.. SAVE YOURSELF..

  20. A woman whose main quality is her mind, not her appearance, and who stands up to Trump as well as any man, and far better than most? Trump's nightmare!

  21. Oh where oh where is tRump troll Ms. Typh-Eye and her legion of bedroom twats who do her typing when she has one of her hissy fits?

  22. I just finished watching the film "Good Night and Good Luck" about Edward R Murrow. I wish Rachel Maddow would watch it because she is so painfully difficult to watch. She speaks as if she is completely unprepared. She is a highly educated woman who should be able to actually articulate a position but instead we get little snide remarks broken up by odd facial expressions and fake laughter. We need someone (who is not a comedian) to be able to take a strong liberal stand; Maddow is not that person.

  23. My president said he got a call, he got a call from China, maybe ur source doesn't know who called who and that's not even possible, how would anybody else know who called who? BS

  24. u are tilted untrue and angry, playing to ur base and enforcing u hate base people like u are the problem, u are a true phony and lier for money.

  25. We know trump is not mentally well. Now let’s go after the congress and senate and get trump and all his appointees out of the White House.

  26. I'd like to point out that none of these behaviours is particularly unusual for a tinpot dictatorship in your average "s***hole country".

  27. Pacifying people with lies. Have you ever heard the saying you got trumped up charge's. Known as over inflated bull crap the saying "trumped up" "it's gonna be huge" "nobody knows more about trade, finance, auto,etc. Than me"

  28. Ain’t it something how these NEWS reporters claim to be neutral and bias.Yet, they get paid to discredit and disgrace a US President!…Lady reporter…have some respect,especially that he’s going to be here another term.🇺🇸

  29. The orange buffoon has already won 2020. Have you seen the democratic candidates? Bahahaha, Anderson Coopers prolapse has a better chance of beating Trumper than any democratic candidate..

  30. Trump doesn't JUST have second thoughts. He has third thoughts and fourth thoughts too. That's just what stable geniuses do.

  31. The fact that Obama has scheduled a trip to Denmark the week after he would have been there, and would undoubtedly be greeted more enthusiastically than he, is more believable reason for cancelling.

  32. OMG what a bunch of liberal whining…..Stretching and spinning the truth to make baseless accusations. . Pretty pathetic actually. Trump could cure cancer and CNN would headline how Trump destroyed the health care market putting treatment centers out of business and eliminating jobs.

  33. Why i want to leave the country. The amount of idiots i have met that actually stand behind trump. This is what they want.

  34. Does anyone else suspect that there are Trump insiders intentionally feeding him misinformation, bad advice and absurd ideas to try and expose his idiocy?

  35. I think anyone in any work setting would be sent home or the hospital if they started to speak like this "president".

  36. You OK? . Should be asked of the American people. It's just too exhausting! It's worse than being a parent responsible for triplet toddlers! If this coming hurricane could just wipe out his 'bestest' compound in Florida so be it.

  37. This is so upsetting and disheartening (as is the entire Trump presidency,) that I feel like watching Fox News so that I can pretend everything is okay.

  38. the best reporting about a laughable lying president but so serious enough to be soooo careful because it works to his base…americans should be smarter this time about all the president's spewing remarks

  39. We all know how "clueless" Illicit-45 behaves, and since we know what he really is, we also know what we really want – an actual President with interests beyond his own bank account. Let's vote BLUE across the board in 2020.

  40. Sick he got mixed up about his wife and daughter who he took to kim jong;s place.
    ivanka is is real wife in his mind

  41. Demographics are going to change as sure as the sun rises. Debt is completely beyond comprehension. People nowadays are viciously bickering over celebrities, personae, and nothing more. No amount of voting nor any multiple of candidates you support is going to change the fact that global conflict is coming. It's not any one leader's fault. It's not your fault. It's not your grandfather's fault or the the person living around the corner. It just is. Enjoy your lives for now because the hammer is about to drop and fantastic sacrifices are required by our masters. You will comply to their whims or meet destruction, whether by seemingly natural forces or direct malice. The end really is nigh, and there's nothing religious about it.

  42. Rest of the world is NINETYSEVEN percent…. USA has besides its constant masshootings worsest healthcare and education system by far of the G 7. The "rest" is more than equal, far more.
