  1. Remember the Spence interview in Ireland when they asked him about him staying in a Trump owned hotel while the tax payers paid for it. It was classic on how he responded. He totally avoided answering the question. Being this totally weird Evangelical that he is I bet that all of this is torture for him. And now this. Honestly, I don’t think he’s going to make it through all of this without imploding himself.

      Evangelical = person who doesn’t notice that the word Grace is not in the gospel.

    • In the Bible belt, we called the Evangelicals 9th-Commandmenters, because they seemed to have a compulsion to bear false witness daily. Making up stories out of the blue to try to get co-workers fired, ludicrously false sexual harassment claims. But they were the ones who were stealing, manhandling the teenage employees, etc. It was the Christians that were doing ALL the sinning.

    • Trump will win 2020!!
      I can’t wait to see the meltdown…

    • @ Andrew Brent: Regarding your comment that Christians always find a loophole to explain away guilt is NOT TRUE. A lot of PEOPLE to CLAIM to be CHRISTIANS but are NOT TRUE CHRISTIANS. So PLEASE do not include All CHRISTIANS when you make that statement. The LORD JESUS KNOWS those who are Truly HIS.

  2. My God, this is getting juicier and juicier by the hour.

  3. Veep never knows anything about anything. Any kind of scandal and he knows nothing. Not the kind of man you want leading a nation…

  4. Pence: ” Mother….that orange Judas set me up!!!”😠

    Oh what a wicked web we weave when at first we practice to deceive……


  7. I’m surprised I haven’t crashed a YouTube server after all the thumbs up I’ve just given out reading these comments.
    The scary part is that surely, the crimes we know about, aren’t even 10% of what’s really been happening.

  8. When are these bones heads realize that cheeto only cares about cheeto. Everyone else is there for the using

  9. Miky Pence has accepted his status as Donald’s Punching Bag.

    I guess that leaves Nancy for President? 👌🏼

    According to Trump… “ Pelosi is no longer speaker of the house” she is now the President!

      pretty much

      Having Pence take over for Trump would make things 1000 times worse. It’s best both of them go.

      If as a consequence Nancy Pelosi lands in the presidential position, well, that would make her the first female president.

      Makes you wonder… Would things have been better or worse if Hillary had won the election?

      MagickFireWolf even if pence becomes president he won’t even be there long enough to nominate a V.P. because he was stupid enough to get involved in this.

    Pence`s defence is: “I told Selensky that he will not get weapons as promised, but I didn`t knew that there was a reason” LOL

  13. Sometimes I wish I could meet Rachel Maddow, shake her hand and thank her for her service to all of our countries.

    The cards are starting to fall. The media needs to keep up the pressure! He’s visibly unraveling in front of us. Trump is miserable right now.

    This sounds to me, exactly like what Trump wanted it to sound like to Pence: “If I go down, I’m taking you with me. Fall in line.”

  16. Rachel is being proven right about everything she’s been doubted on. Love it.

    • elitepanda3000 | October 3, 2019 at 11:59 AM | Reply

      she has never been doubted on anything, its only the righies trying to discredit her that tried the false doubt. But she was proven right very quickly.

    it’s like Pence will claim that his dog ate his homework.

    When you can’t win fairly you blackmail other leaders into doing you favors.

    I love Rachel Maddow, she says it as it is and does it with a little humor.

  20. Pelosi for president in 2019!
