    The most corrupted administration in U.S history.

  2. Manafort Flynn Gates Epstein Cohen Papadopoulos…. I’m just waiting for Trump’s time to be put in handcuffs.🤡🎪

    Drain the swamp…??! Really? This is a ‘who’s who’ of corporations and lobbyists. Should I go to Fox and tell Trump supporters? Naw….waste of time because it’s fake news.

    • More like changing out swamp water for raw sewage

    • Do pls! Sometimes I watch Hannity & troll the comments with facts. And, the # of ppl doing that is increasing. To avoid the “fake news” reply, i try to stick to govt reports e.g. specific pages of the Mueller report, gov data showing Obama deported much more ppl than Trump, Trump droning 7 countries & increasing the # of troops in Iraq, Syria and Libya despite running on “no more troops in the MEast.” US citizens detained for weeks by border patrol by mistake, or the most common one, pasting a Constitutional Amendment to remind them why Trump’s White Supremacy’s 100% unAmerican!
      Trump is likely to get re-elected: in 2016 it boiled down to 90 000 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Plus, those ppl are fact-deprived : )
      The hannity crowd’s too far gone, but those who watch the actual journalists on Fox (Chris Wallace, Brett Baier) include some redeemables. Plus, it feels good at times to just blow some steam at the very worst deplorables lol

      Great points!
      I’ve been on Fox news clips posting from time to time also. I was on last week during Trump’s tweet meltdown and attack of the 4 Congresswomen. All I would do is just vote and point out facts in the Constitution why Trump’s comments were not only racist, and actually more xenophobic, and Unamerican. Sure enough some unbelievably twisted comments. Some just wouldn’t respond because they knew I was right. I did attack them with bring racist, instead I said they were Unamerican. That’s a strategy I started using recently. Because honestly, some people are so much in denial of Trump’s wrongdoings and behavior, you’ll ‘never’ be able to make them see otherwise.

      Biggest money lobby in the US- AIPAC.

  4. Boris is a bumbling simpleton but compared to US Trump, Boris is a “stable genius.” 😬😬

      @David Brisbane when Scotland becomes independent, I am reclaiming my Scottish heritage….!!

    • The Brexiters are still under the illusion that the EU badly wants them back lol
      Much like Trump believes he’s adored by the masses. I hope for the Brits that Boris is at least less criminal, bc they’re gonna have fun while the UK disintegrates over some kipper with an ice pillow.

    • My personal stereotype is that anyone with an English accent sounds more intelligent.

  5. I for one cannot wait until this farce of an administration crumbles under it’s own weight of corruption.🌼

      @Ash Roskell open mic with Obama and Putin give me little more time…tells ??? both parties USA playing the game, everywhere..

    • The entire world is waiting. They appreciate that this kind of leader (one who does not serve the people – despite his swearing of the sacred Oath) might infect their own government.

    I find it hard to believe that Flynn was a three-star general. This borders on treason.

      And don’t forget John Kelly lve always found this mind boggling that these two that was so highly decorated was so easily corrupted are we missing a farce somewhere here?

      @Godfrey Jemand
      You make a good point and most high ranking military officers are more like logistics personnel in essence, if you actually think about how few legendary generals that could think a little more creatively there have been you can count them on your fingers.

      @Some Guy trump’s time will come, let’s hope it comes sooner rather than later.

  7. The current occupant of the Oval Office also happens to be an unregistered agent of a foreign government.

  8. Come on America, this administration is selling you to the highest bidder, foreign or domestic and caIIs it MAGA while guIIibIe Trump supporters applaud !!!! Thats really bad!

    The theme of the whole Dotard tRump’s administration is criminal.

    • Richard Untch | July 24, 2019 at 9:22 AM | Reply

      @Downright Dutch Bot? Or Just a bunch of incoherent and inane drivel?

    • Trump is taking all of those who brought about the near collapse of the wprld financial system and given them jobs in hos government. So what do they have their greedy eyes upon ths time round??

    • Olmo Barragán | July 24, 2019 at 11:42 AM | Reply

      Nice play of words! Funny. I have a darker one: Demian Trump or Donald Thorn, refers to the Antichrist movie.

    • And Pelosi is the ringleader!! She wrote the script for this hearing and its going just as I had expected it would with her at the wheel. We lost the 2016 election because of her, now we will lose 2020 because of her. Im ready to throw in the towel and NEVER vote again.

  10. When he said “Drain the swamp” I don’t think many thought he meant “into the cabinet.”

    • @Ash Roskell What else does he quote from Stalin apart from the infamous Vrag Naroda. “enemy of the people”? “America first” is straight from the American Nazi sympathizers in the 30s, guessing Bannon and Miller play a part, plus Trump’s only known book, a compilation of Nazi speeches on his bedside table.

    • As the High Priest of the Cult of Trump, the swamp has been utilised as the Baptismal Font.

    As a foreigner, I simply don’t understand how you can allow this to go on.
    A dodgy administration.
    Where’s the morality, the decency?

    • cindy hatch I always vote blue. I don’t understand why any working stiff could vote for the republican party. They’ve always been about the super rich. Don’t get it. Could it be the racism, the misogyny? Warren 2020

    The Swamp Things have taken over the government.

    • Keoki Ciervo | July 24, 2019 at 4:00 AM | Reply

      Well yeaaaaaaaaaa and thanks mainly to the GO-P utin party aka Republikkkans.

    • Let’s put one of the rats in office that will fix it a cure for cancer a 1000 a month open borders tax dollars to illegals

  13. the WORST ENEMY == the united states has ever had == BAR NONE ! ===== the RUSSIANS are not coming == they are ALREADY HERE ! !

    Trump didn’t drain the swamp by adding these lobbying corporations to the administration… he built another swamp right next to it

  15. How many more proofs does America need. Why does America put up with this president.

    • James Walker | July 24, 2019 at 10:40 AM | Reply

      same reason we put up with all our presidents. they are our president,you don’t have to like them.

    • ruebensfilms | July 24, 2019 at 10:40 AM | Reply

      Because half the voters of the electoral college either like it or are not moved enough to say no.

    • @James Walker
      Ah, stupidity, then. Right, gotcha.

    • James Walker | July 24, 2019 at 12:24 PM | Reply

      yes the idea of a presidency is stupid. its become a joke. but im not going to hate someone as a person because I disagree with their politics. someones personnel opinion is just that. ive seen 6 presidents in my lifetime. only one of them has affected my personnel life. I don’t bash him. this whole right vs left is bunch of crap. as long as we argue over how we FEEL,we will never get past the bickering.

  16. Andrew Mastin | July 24, 2019 at 2:49 AM | Reply

    Flynn richly deserves to spend the remainder of his life in prison.

  17. It should be clear to everyone how corrupt this administration is. Yet there are some who still support them. It is hard to believe this is reality.

  18. None of the lobbyist are in it for service to the country but rather , self gain

  19. “This is not an administration, it is a crime spree” – Sarah Kendzior

  20. Trump next tweet “never know the guy, never met him, never a fan of the individual”
