  1. Trump is a corrupt draft dodging criminal. He and his mafia crime family should be dragged out of the White House in shackles and thrown in a moat full of snakes and alligators.

    The GOP is beyond corrupted. Just too spineless to even stand up to themselves and the country.

  4. Is anyone actually SURPRISED to find out that The Republican Party is absolutely CORRUPT

    • No

      STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS The speaker of the house earns $223,000 a year, a very significant salary. Pelosi has been in the workforce for well over half a century, much of that time spent in high paying positions. She and her husband, whose earning potential has likewise contributed to their shared wealth, have been together for 56 years. They have investments. There is nothing remarkable about people with that level of earning potential, who have been earning as long as they have, owning a 10 million dollar home. Even if you DID have evidence she was corrupt (and what you offer certainly ain’t it) it wouldn’t have any bearing on the validity of the comment you were responding to.

  5. They will all be remembered as traitors.

    • “No Paris Accord” – Trump pulling the US out of the Paris Accord was a very, very bad thing to do.  There is no way in Hell that is an accomplishment.

  7. But Pompeo had a heady shot at a vaunted job that almost surely wasn’t going to come his way any other time. So he lunged for it, then demonstrated with his obsequiousness that doing good and doing right were never high on the agenda.
    He wrote an op-ed article that essentially broke with his fellow Republicans to promote Trump’s view that Saudi Arabia’s butchery of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi shouldn’t give anyone pause. What are a few severed body parts among allies?
    He recalled the ambassador to Ukraine just to please the president and his babbling Beelzebub, Rudy Giuliani. He listened mutely to that July 25 phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president, decided to ignore what he heard and then claimed — until a few days ago — that he was utterly in the dark about any pressure on Ukraine to kneecap Joe Biden.
    Had he spoken up or pushed back, he would have risked ending up on the outside, among the swelling Trump administration diaspora. He preferred the inside, with its glossier trappings and cushier thrones. He and his wife were diplomatic royalty, jetting around the world. He could bear the ache of a tongue full of tooth marks. Better to be a wretched part of history than no part at all.

    • ​@Ken Murphy Yes we know reading past a third-grade level is difficult for Trumpturds and traitors like you.
      Russian Troll Alert!…..Russian Troll Alert!…..Russian Troll Alert!…..Russian Troll Alert!…..Russian Troll Alert!…..

  8. Difference is.. Republicans now don’t care…they want power money and to live lives without consequences.

      I agree with you that DEMOCRATS ARE EVIL MONSTERS 😨

    • Are we talking the Clintons and Pelousi. Both talked about power with strange looks on their faces and each has enriched themselves while in office. Are you that removed from reality that you can’t see that.

    • I must be. Sorry I can’t say what I’d like to say… not because it is bad or rude or even threatening… No I would never say or write anything such as that to anyone.. I can only say… Sorry you somehow are misinformed.

    Yep!! These soulless ‘people’ in the GOP will not be remembered how they want and I have zero sympathy.

    • The Republican party embraced the tea party which leads to Donald. Old disgruntled white people bitching that no one listens to them. And now we see why. They are fucking crazy with conspiracies, deep state and everyone in government is up to some devious purpose.

    • @citizenxgen Those in the GOP will be asking. I know being miserable is hard, so, Have a beautiful day.

    Great piece and a timely reminder.

  11. The GOP? The GOP is dead. This is the POT. The party of Trump. The GOP died on the day they endorsed him.

  12. GOP: Goons of Putin

    • @ardurbin2 RACHEL MADCOW fake news?!! i could believe you on dems corrupted because some effectively are but i am sure about one thing she said the true particularity about the Russians way to lead a country!….

  13. Sounds funny but I guess in a special way…
    *America will thank Donald Trump one future day.*
    *He is really draining the swamp.*
    His totally immoral behavior proves how corrupt the GOP really is. Cheaters all together.
    The FBI is now investigating his crimes and corruption. And they will come across a lot of collusion of the leading GOP lawmakers with this criminal.
    This mafia-type mentality in politics has to stop. And money and fund raising playing such a crucial role in politics has to stop also.
    All that will come out now.
    The constitutional institutions have to ensure that such a catastrophe does not repeat:
    – immoral presidents like Trump
    – bought elections
    – voter suppression
    – voting fraud
    – candidates who are overseeing their own elections
    Pray for all righteous people close to power!
    And pray that this nightmare of a corrupt presidency is over soon.
    With Trump, half of his Nazi-like administration, and the complicit Repugnant lawmakers in prison.

      You know I tend to agree.
      Trump has just demonstrated how bad the Washington swamp, and American politics…and I would extend to American life..(certainly American version of Christianity) ..the corruption of its entirety in pursuit of the mighty greenback.
      Morals, ethics, doing the right thing, looking after others is all forgotten or paid lip service.
      Look at Jimmy Carter…he sold his farm to become President, and now in his 90s still humbly does good things with no mega dollars pay-offs as far as I can recall.
      How it’s all changed in 30 yes.
      America is basically rotten to the core, lost its way, and is polluting the planet to death (US has by far the highest energy consumption per citizen of any country on the planet), over consumption for consumption sake.

      So maybe the moron Dotard is doing everyone a favour by sabotaging it from the inside.

    • Yeah! You tell’em! We need another 3 years of investigations that go absolutely no where and reveal no crimes!
      To the gallows!

    • @Adam E.
      No crimes?
      Michael Cohen…
      … Trump’s lawyer
      … in prison
      Paul Manafort…
      … Trump’s campaign manager
      … in prison
      Michael Flynn…
      … Trump’s 1st security adviser
      … indicted, awaiting sentencing
      The Trump inauguration…
      … under investigation
      Sure no crimes!
      Fox News is thoroughly washing your brain and you obviously like it.
      Weird Trump cult delusion!

    Oh I agree! The GOP may not have to answer to their coward ness today, tomorrow or next year. But somewhere in the future…This will come back and HAUNT them!

    Everyone Republican who has turn a blind eye to Trump’s foolishness, I hope they will be disgusted with themselves for the remainder of their lives!

    • You people are so fucking nieve. Do you really think Trump and the Republicans will ever yield to an election again? As in Nazi Germany in 1933 the ultimate power grab has begun. Democracy in America is dead. we now have a banana republic.

  17. “There are empirical wrong s in the world”. Ethics and Justice demand their voice be heard.

  18. I believe History will one day discuss the “RICO unSuave Presidency” and what it taught us about people who inform the camera that they would like to date their own daughter.

    • If anyone wanted Jeffery Epstein murdered it was the Clinton crime family, and Democrats.

      @Christian Somers yet trump hasn’t talked to him in like 20 years but Clinton was flying all around with him

  20. When your goals are myopically short term and self interested, how history will regard you is the last thing on your mind.
