    now he wont pay the state or city security cost for his rally

  2. I love how in the South, “bless your heart” can mean anything from “bless your heart” to “go F yourself.”

  3. I live in louisiana and I made sure to vote. Thanks Trump for letting me know I should vote for Edwards.

  4. Are the trump apologists tired of winning yet?

      @buddy camp Hmmmm… So… Your mother never told you that you really weren’t a wizard? Magic isn’t real… so unless you have a secret time machine, there’s not really any way you can qualify that statement, is there? 😁✌

    • This is only the beginning of the winning.. So many gop members are gonna be out of a job because of donald trump its not gonna be freakin funny..

      Their gonna be begging him to NOT come around..

      Trump is toxic he makes people get out and vote AGAINST YOU…



  5. I like that Louisiana’s election is held on a Saturday.

  6. This is just the beginning. Just wait till 2020 💙💙💙💙

    • Georgia Peach That’s right baby. You’re goddam gorgeous baby. 💙💙💙

    • @gb032645 That’s right. And the idiots that are middle class, getting screwed, are supporting the bullshit.

      They didn’t these libs just hate republicans because they want everything free and republicans are trying to teach them to takecare of themselves I have no faith in younger generations.

    • @Br Car You want to tell me your life story too? I’m having fun at your expense. Good for you if you are doing well and has it be more than 4 years? If it has then thank Obama for that since most people want to thank trump. I’m doing okay and so is my grown daughter and we do our best to take care of my granddaughter.

    The fact that Edwards damn near worked a miracle by cleaning up the catastrophe Jindal left behind was enough to get me to vote for him again. The Democrat was the actual fiscal conservative in this case.

    🙋‍♀️🇺🇸🦅Congratulations Governor Edward’s.

  10. I live in Michigan but I even know whenever someone say ‘bless his heart”, mean they think he’s slow!

      @Selebrity 152 Are you seriously this delusional? You realize Trump is a CEO, right? You actually don’t realize it, that’s so sad. Doesn’t seem in the bag. Republicans are being routed in elections since the midterms. Trump couldn’t even get the popular vote in 2016, I wonder how he makes up for it now. See you in 2020 buddy. God bless your heart.

      @myko freder The economies of Mich., Wis,, and Penn. has not recovered as Trump is boasting. The majority of jobs were those that became vacant by low paying immigrants that were deported for awhile. Few jobs have been created in the professional $100,000 + range . We are luckier than many others still living in US poverty.

      From southeast Michigan, that’s what you say while patting someone or a pet on the head.

    • @Selebrity 152 You should come out of your bubble occasionally. I think you are missing how tired 70% of the population is of Trump and his stupid behavior. We live in Arizona and it’s turning into a blue state – fast.

      R. McBride very sad that it’s turning blue. Evil wants to Rule.

  11. I like when the reporter said: “Trump’s visit to Louisiana may have impacted the vote in a way that he didn’t expect…” Man, that says A LOT. Polls can’t capture that information, folks.

  12. “Eddie Rispone ? ? I didn’t really know him.”

    Republican: “I’m going to run for governor!”
    Trump: “I’ll back you!”
    Republican: “NOOO! I WANT TO WIN!”

    i just hope it’s a sign that the u.s is waking up and kicking out the GOP

    • While the state voted for a Dem Governor, it also voted for 14 Republicans including attorney general. At least the governor won’t be able to do much damage to the state.

      Im seeing the signs every day….looking pretty damn good for dems so far

    • Previous month I managed to pull my first five figure income ever!!! I’ve been working for this company on the net for 2 yrs now and I never been happier… They are paying me $95 per hour, and the most important thing about that is the fact I am not really that tech-savvy, they only asked for standard understanding of internet and key typing skill…Amazing thing about it is that now I have more time with my kids. I am able to spend quality time with my relatives and buddies and look after my babies and also going on holiday with them very consistently. Don’t miss this chance and make sure to react quickly. Let me show you what I do… *foryou49­.­c­o­m*

    • Victor Barnes I mean he’s a pro gun anti abortion governor who got rid of the state deficit, he can bring gop voters on his board easy!

    • Nah Louisiana is still a very red state. On paper JBE identifies as a democrat but in reality he’s extremely moderate as far as his actual policies and political beliefs. I never understood why he didn’t run as an independent or even a moderate Repub.


  16. The guy in the cowboy hat is giving me life lol 😂

    Yeah we say bless his heart all the time here in the south😁

  18. Thanks, Louisiana for looking out for our country’s best interests!

  19. I like the vanity of trump to assume that just because he backs someone that it will have his desired result.

    • He came really close though. It was no-name Rispone against a popular incumbent, if it weren’t for Trump Rispone would have lost waaaay worse than just 2%.
