      @Don Williams Awww, Republicucks are so cute when they’re triggered. It’s okay snowflake.

    • Don Williams … do you need me to write it in sharpie for you? And as for your other question, google it. Although you should probably have a VPN enabled or you’ll be tracked by your authorities. Mind you, with the lifestyles of your senators and president, you’ll probably get a years membership to Mar-a-Lago.

      @Don Williams and construction workers make less than 15 years ago. Yeah we living the dream.

  4. A clown car full of attorneys for a clown car president. How fitting.

  5. The republicans need to be voted out! Good grief I am tired of this daily s*it show!

    • claire bigelow Hmmmm I wonder why for both? Fake News has BASHED Trump since day 1. Mocked him, called him every IST and ISM known to man, edited video’s to show certain things, leave out parts of a comment to look a different way. And with Obama, ask him what his favorite M&M’s are.

    • @Jim L you paying for it?

      Don Williams You sound triggered. It’s okay princess, get a nap and the adults will take care of things.

      @Randy Couch the people r going to vote them yes they r 😂😂😂lol

  6. The Senate trial is a cover-up. The whole Trump presidency/criminal enterprise has been a cover-up from day one.

    • Sukhbir Sekhon | January 20, 2020 at 2:00 PM | Reply

      Trump has barely said a word about epstein. He’s worried about corruption in Ukraine but a suspicious death like epstein under his jurisdiction he completely ignores.

    • @Sukhbir Sekhon Coincidence or Hit’s by the Trump Crime Family? – Trumps friend Jeffery Epstein Death by Suicide, the CEO for Trump’s bank Deutsche Bank (approved all of Trumps loans) Thomas Bowers suicide, Peter W. Smith another banker and one of the people involved in Trumps Russia email scam Suicide. All were Trumps money men.

    • *Jesus on ‘True news’*

      Message to John Leary.

      Saturday, February 4, 2017:
      Jesus said: “My people, I am showing you this evil eye that is projecting a bright light of movies onto a big screen. There is also an evil brainwashing going on in your programs on television. You are seeing how some of your Hollywood actors are speaking out against your President, and some are so bold that they want to overthrow your government. It may be better not to watch TV, and avoid supporting these bad actors and their ‘R’ movies. Your people listen to your news commentators, and they trust their words, but some of them are lying with fake news. It is difficult to discern which people are telling the truth. It is better to trust in My Word of the Bible as truth, and I will set you free from the bonds of your sins. My words last forever because they are Divine, but your words in the newspaper are thrown out in the trash tomorrow.It is better to believe in My ‘Good News’ than the devil’s ‘fake news’ that lead people into sin.”

    The statement: trump is guilty AF.

  9. rebecca gerringer | January 20, 2020 at 12:36 PM | Reply

    This legal team is the equivalent of Melania wear The Who Cares? jacket. It makes a statement: the statement is a big f-you to all Americans. Wake up, America. Your president has openly said he is not the president of all Americans.

    • I agree but his base doesn’t care. I spoke to a client who was attempting to convert me to trumps side. Regardless of the evidence he still loves him and thinks he’s great. When I asked for specific evidence he couldn’t site any. When I brought up evidence he waved it away.

    • Rebecca, the biggest f-you is to women.

    • Abadullah Khan | January 20, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

      rebecca gerringer I did not understand it Rebecca. If you read this can you please explain it to me why it means he is not the president of all Americans

  10. Why Mr. Putin wanted
    Mr. Trump to become a
    USA President? You Guess
    It to ” Influence or Control
    USA Politics from Russia”

    • putin is afraid of Hillary so he chose to back the weaker candidate

    • @Boudica Yep. Putin said as much a few times, starting back in ’98.

    • Phil Gallagher | January 20, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      @Boudica Yep – when he realised Trump was getting the Republican Ticket, Putin must have thrown off his Communist Ideologies, become a Christian & fallen to his knees saying “My Prayers have been answered, God IS real after all!!”**

      **Footnote: No he isn’t

    Hire a TV team when you don’t have the facts and evidence on your side.

    • I thought Trump wanted this to just go away,but then he hires a circus of clowns to make everyone notice.They will notice the unbelievable corruption of this conman Trump.

    • Molly Misandrist | January 20, 2020 at 2:53 PM | Reply

      Alex M we can only hope. We will have to employ years of patience and empathy to get them through the long and arduous venture of deprogramming. His blind supporters are convincing themselves he wasn’t impeached. That’s the level of disassociation from reality we’re dealing with.

    • Alex M 👏🏾👏🏻👏🏿👏🏼👏🏽👏🏾👏🏻👏🏿👏👏🏼👏🏾👏🏻👏🏿👏👏🏽👏🏼👏🏾👏🏻👏🏿🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣

    • @Molly Misandrist He was impeached by only democrats and 1 of them LEFT the party to join the republicans. lol The Senate will follow suit and articles will be rejected.

  12. It comes down to whether he’s above the law or just ‘one of us.’ If he’s above the law (by the Senates standards), it’s time to vote out all incumbents because they are not defending the Constitution., and they put Party over country.

    • karenza t. Wall | January 20, 2020 at 4:01 PM | Reply

      Incumbent Republicans

    • Notice that Kenny there never challenged the statement as wrong?

    • I voted against my Democratic Congressman and Senator in the early 2000s because they voted for the Iraq War. I knew it was useless but I didn’t care. Will any Republican voters have the courage to do the same against their R members who don’t hold this lawless President to account?

    • If they believed he was lawless, they would. They don’t, though. They think he’s the victim, just like they are. That’s why the GOP in Congress stands by him, because their voters demand it.

    • @Daniel V 2 Dems voted against, 1 left the party! so no, do not expect the R’s to vote yes after that.

  14. ” its only illegal because he got caught ”
    That’s the REPUBLICANS defense ….. PERIOD !! 😠

    • @Richard Hunt Not sure where you got you law degree, but if you want a total refund on your tuition, you’re entitled to it. Because that was a really stupid and incorrect statement. Unless you can state the statute.

    • @Richard Hunt did you forget “Vincent Foster’s suicide”, when he knew too much about the Whitewater land deal in Arkansas, Hillary Clinton, the Rose Law Firm where she was a partner, he’d just finished the 3 years in arrears of tax returns. After all, all of us from that region could have saved Ken Star a lot of time investigating BILL for the land deal, which forced them to settle on hanky spanky with an aide, when we all knew he’d had rushing hands and roaming fingers, even in Arkansas and Hillary payed to cover her ambitions.

      In reality, the only 2 TRULY legal Impeachm]ents for Crimes HAVE BEEN NIXON and TRUMP (Venezuela, Ukraine, , BUT all three were impeached for Obstructed Justice, TRUMPS Executive Orders over use and use EVEN AFTER COURT ORDERED TO RELEASE DOCUMENTS is the MOST EGREGIOUS.
      I can’t wait for GOP to lose for PERJURY!

  15. Pedophiles of a feather defend together

  16. Seriously, trump’s whole legal team should be in jail on their own merits… They are all criminals…..

    • Trump’s going to be acquitted and then he’s going to be re-elected😁
      I’m an independent, so you all can just skip that phony Russian troll BS

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | January 20, 2020 at 5:51 PM | Reply

      Dershowitz claims to be NOT a member of trump’s legal team / ‘defense’, but as a Constitutional authority . That makes Dershowitz a WITNESS ! – an EXPERT witness . This should open the door to other, material witnesses; conclusively .

  17. Trump on Epstein, “He’s a very fine man.” Shows how much more corrupt he really is. I wonder how many little girls Trump has paid to bang.

  18. Two lawyers who defended Epstein are defending Trump. Makes sense. Trump said Jeff likes them on the younger side and he’s a lot of fun.

    His defense team will try to acquit him using the old

    “It’s lawful only when you commit crimes while wearing your magic underwear!.”


    • @Bubbles McGee magic wands & magat hats are made in China!

    • Magic Underwear ! Hahahahahahaha ! (Old Men’s white y-fronts)

    • @Bubbles McGee magic wands are water proof you should use yours in the bath!

    • But Trump’s not a Mormon! That’s Mitt Romney. He actually wears “magic underwear.” We in Utah aren’t big Trumpists. Mormons are a little skeptical of big Gov., and aren’t really big on Trump. But still a “red state.” Go figure.

      & one South Park episode later they’re like?…..🤫😇🤪🤔🧐😳😳😳😶😶😶😭😠😡🤬🥳😎

  20. The most perverted legal team in America history.
