  1. Says the man who claimed Iraq was an intimate threat

      The word is imminent Gary not intimate.

      @Stay Casual holding hands and chatting about any little thing, while strolling down the sidewalk… cuddling together on the porch swing and watching the sun set… gently caressing her chin and kissing her full lips… … …

      @Cliff Wheeler better intimate then inmate?

  2. WHY ARE THESE LYING WAR MONGERS STILL IN OFFICE?!?!?!?!!!

    • and the truth is | January 6, 2020 at 5:44 PM | Reply

      @Shelley Ross Trump has made more than 12,000 false or misleading claims …
      https://www.washingtonpost.com › politics › 2019/08/12 › president-trump-…
      Aug 12, 2019 – President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims over 928 days. By … 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading … a percentage that has grown since the government shut down over … In fact, his most repeated claim — 190 times — is that his border wall is being built.

    • @and the truth is It’s ridiculous isn’t it. I don’t have any respect for anyone still defending all his lies.

    • @Oracle of the Most High How can they be wicked if the churches and their sheep voted them into office? Trump is perfect. Just ask him.

      @speedstick77 perfectly.wicked 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 frfr tho!
      They will hold themselves not accountable. They think that their kingdom & power will last 4eva!

  3. Pompeo is another corrupt sleaze ball on the government payroll.

    Pompous Pompeo lies as easily as he breaths and just as often.

    • You know it’s impossible to breath and talk at the same time? Stop supporting the terrorist Soleimani who burned and drilled young children in front of their parents, or not, it’s your choice.

    • Lol quit pretending to care you lying scums. We all know absolutely nothing will happen to people like Pompeo or Barr after trump leaves office. Americans have always enabled war criminals, that’s why trump’s even in office in the first place, because americans have been enabling trump’s base for over half a century. You can save your fake crocodile tears, everyone’s been watching this on repeat for so many decades, it’s absolutely hilarious americans think they’re fooling anyone but themselves by spewing more lies

      @Octavius Chan

      Well put 👍

  5. Pompeo is sickening with his lies.

    • @Delroy Brower you’re a smart man..Trump wants peace this is why both parties hated him trying in north Korea..the military industrial complex runs America!!!$$$$$$$$. Both parties want war. The generals want war because it’s what they practice and the politicians for power and money. Israel could have leaked bad info then trumps advisors forced his hand knowing iran response hard and bingo there is your war $$$$. President Kennedy ignored his generals during the cuban missile crisis thank god we where this close to nuclear war. Scary stuff ..its not going to change delroy

    • Area 51 raid 20th of April when they are occupied with Iran. With cyber trucks we will be protected against the bullets. Hope you can come 💪🏼

      He’s sickening with his face.

    • @jason Timberlake lol

  6. MAGA: Morons And Goons Administration.

  7. Pompeo lies, with that smug look.

  8. He keeps dancing around the questions. He still has not given a complete answer.

    • Gnirol Namlerf | January 6, 2020 at 12:55 PM | Reply

      Is that Mrs. Covina (“Cov”) Fefe? You’re absolutely right. Most politicians dance around questions when it is inconvenient to answer them. Secy Pompeo does it so clumsily, haltingly, incompetently, though. He might as well have a tattoo on his upper lip saying, “This too is a lie.” I’ve heard five-year olds deal with accusatory questions better when they are innocent, and about as badly when they are not.

    • and he never will. these people from trump on down were all given power they do not deserve.

  9. Chris Kiran Aarya | January 6, 2020 at 11:23 AM | Reply

    Pompeo is a craven fool who sold his soul to Trump.

  10. Pompeo is a liar and has made all Americans less safe.

    • @Carson Morris Um, yes!

    • Dayna Jones Given the impulsive and overkill-type nature of this act, I believe, is evidence that Trump is actually behind this, and Pompeo is taking the fall. I could be wrong, but I would not be at all surprised if Trump were allowing other officials to take the blame for him, for his own decisions. The US election is less than a year away, and Republicans are desperate to save face. Their “face” is currently Donald Trump, so they are perhaps now trying more desperately than ever before to save his face leading up to the election.

    • @Karin Meyer this might be why Pompeo is no longer going to run in the Senate race in Kansas

    “It was right because I say so”

  12. American people are smart enough to know we are being lied to.

  13. Pepper Grinder | January 6, 2020 at 12:58 PM | Reply

    No American will shed a tear if the Iranians target Trumps family.

  14. Pompeo is a lying rat. He like Trump couldn’t tell the truth to save his life. Disgusting

  15. WHY DIDN’T THEY RETALIATE WHEN AN “AMERICAN”REPORTER WAS BUTCHERED IN SAUDI ARABIA 🤔NO OUTRAGE THERE?!

    • Renegadeproject | January 6, 2020 at 10:12 PM | Reply

      Saudi money is sweet

    • Preston Williams | January 6, 2020 at 10:15 PM | Reply

      Because selling out the lives of American citizens, who happen to be brown AND journalists who probably had dirt not just on Saudi Arabia, but also this administration and gop, is worth the arms deal money and the return on the investments gop leadership bought in stock, made with an extremist dictatorship. Silly goose 😊

    • The answer is simple! MONEY! Just follow the money!

    • @K41 Yes it was and it happened in the Saudi embassy.

  16. “We took a bad guy off the battlefield.”

    Why do they all sound like they’re 12?

  17. “In the CIA, we were taught to lie, cheat, and steal”

    -Mike Pompeo

    • He’s got the cheating and stealing down pat. His lying could use some work though – he’s a patently obvious liar.

  18. Does anyone trust face talkers like Pompeo and Gym Jordan.

  19. Mickey Hutton | January 6, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

    He doesn’t sound to convincing sounds like a lies to the American people

  20. Pompeo saying “The American people are smart” is like a pedophile pitching children to play a game.

    • Poe Lou Chan Pompeo saying “The American people are smart”, with this administration, that is code for “Oh yes, we’re definitely hiding something important from the American people”. In this particular case, I believe what Pompeo is hiding is that Trump ordered the Iraqi general killed, and Pompeo is possibly taking the fall for it. Why? Because the US election is just months away, and the Republican party’s “anointed one” Trump has to look as squeaky clean as possible from now until the election.
