    Make America Great Again… impeach the orange clown.

  2. Just the latest attempt by Trump to mimic his favorite tin pot dictators and he’s got just the Banana ReTrumplitards to enable it all.

    • Putin controls the small trump mind… 🇷🇺💰👎

    • @ignantassninja urrealdad You liberal supremacists crack me up! As dumb as you make yourselves look!

    • 3LD MAGA2020!!!!

      They are dragging their feet.
      The orange one is consolidating power in the executive branch. He hired Barr to keep him out of prison.
      Mueller was getting ready to nail individual number one for obstruction of justice, money laundering, conspiracy, etc… He’s been impeachable since day one.
      State charges are piling up against him.
      They need to make Republicans own their great orange mistake. He’s lying to them.

    Shocking Republicans would ruin our Intelligence Agencies to appease Trump…

    • Newsflash brood ape you can impeach him but you cant remove him from office so go ahead is will only make him stronger 😂

      It’s not if he will be impeached.
      It’s for which crime.

    • Power corrupts what do you numbnutts think impeachment will do you can’t remove him with the republicans holding the senate it will just give him another win when the senate exonerates him

      Republicans in Congress need to wtfu and recognize that they all took the same oath of office to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    • Power corrupts he’s the most popular(among the republican base) president in modern history for a republican politician to go against him is political suicide

    Apparently Congressman John RATcliffe is a Moscow approved Trumpanzee. #TrumpForPrison2020 🇺🇲 #FuckDonaldTrump #PutinsWhore 🖕🇷🇺

    Well…he already politicized basic human decency

    Never trust a repuke from Texas with “Rat” in his name, especially one with orange lips.

    steal from the poor and give to the rich!!! Feed them—— in the dark, let them spew hate and they can’t see the $$$ flying away!!!!

  9. 1. Pick someone who is wholly unqualified for the job.
    2. Make them indebted to you for said job.
    3. Demand they show loyalty to you above everything else.
    4. And that’s how t’rump picks his people. The Best People! 😃😆😅😂

      Trump’s best people; Betsy De Vos, Ben Carson, Elaine Chao, Mick Mulvaney, Stephen Miller, Ryan ” Stinks “, Scott Pruitt, Jared Kushner, Ivanka, Linda McMahon and others who have no knowledge or experience of doing the jobs assigned to them. The only requirement is absolute loyalty. I wonder if Trump has a pledge of allegiance to him that is similar to Hitler’s that his appointees have to swear.

    • Is that not blackmail?

    • Ro G, yeah best as in “best”

  10. Trumps building his dictatorship. You really think he’d step down even if dems got the spine to reach impeachment?

  11. Each and every Senator who votes for RATcliffe’s confirmation will be committing an anti-American and unpatriotic act of high crimes and misdemeanors. RATcliffe is nothing but a conspiracy spouting traitor with no agenda, but to destroy America and enable the dictator in the Oval Office.

  12. Come on Dems? Have the COURAGE to SHAPE public opinion, instead of chasing it? When the TRUTH comes out, AT LAST, through Impeachment, America will want him GONE

  13. We are the United States of America. “We the People, in order to form a more perfect UNION ….”
    Don’t let one divider in chief spread his hate.

    “The reality show we’re all trapped in together”

  15. I am surprised he didn’t put forward Alexander Bortnikov (Current head of FSB). I would have thought he would have helped the Trump, Putin and Moscow Mitch collaboration even more.

    Funny, America wants to move backwards. Considering we’re not even 250 year’s old, that’s a horrible thought.


  18. When Trump says “highly respected” he means: a crook, a villain, a ganster, a soulless grifter, a cheater, a liar, a money grabbing despicable being. You are welcome for this translation ♡

    Benedict Barr and Moscow Mitch trying to bury EVERYTHING about the Russians. Just because a criminal in the WH said so.

  20. Craig Crawford | July 30, 2019 at 9:25 AM | Reply

    And one wonders why all those republicans went to Russia over 4th of July way back…
