    Donald Trump didn’t make the party who it is….. he just exposed them. Its time for the GOP to go away forever! The ideology was based on corruption and lining their own pockets!

  2. Instead of cringing like the cowards they are and defending the Criminal trump every time he opens his pie hole, the repubs should be stepping up and calling him out. Otherwise they are complicit in his crimes and open themselves up to legal action.

    • Nah we will keep trump.
      And you will continue to be a blubbering baby.

      They are already ‘complicit’ and complacent

    • @MIchael Rigby We are still not tired of winning.
      Get a job MOOCHERS!

    • they’d rather distract their gullible followers with “they’re gonna take yer guns” and “they’re soshalists” as they give corporations tax refunds and happily take oil company bribes to ignore the climate

      @You You why do you Trump idiots always think people who dont like Trump are moochers or dont have jobs? That would mean unemployment would be 60 percent! How can you be so proud to be an ignoramus?

    The dude from south Carolina seems to forget Hillary Clinton won the popular vote

  4. As a former registered Republican, I can’t ever see going back.

    • @thomas swihart : Just Get Ready To Scream At The Sky Again You Loser , The Greatest President Mr Trump In History WILL Get RE-ELECTION … keep believing MSHIV .

      @WAKE UP JEFF if they are gone, why do they live rent free in your head? But, but, but OBAMA!!! But, but, but HILLARY!!!! You’re a sad sap and a clueless sheep. Now, go brush your tooth, kiss your sister/wife goodbye on your way out of your trailer for work at McDonald’s, and don’t forget to ask if they want fries with that.

    • @WAKE UP JEFF They are going to have to invent a new word for how stupid you are.

    • @gorams csu <-- this, don't ditch your party and principles just because of one dingbat. Take your party back and stand proud to be a GOP. Our parties may not always agree but we can agree that we want to see the better for this country for EVERY citizen that calls it their home and not just a few people who would want to exclude people who many not look or think like them.

  5. Im curious what do trump supporters think about Moscow mitch refusals to bring on the many bills to protect American elections!

      @Dawn Cunningham Israel, Saudi Arabia, Russia… wouldn’t be surprised if North Korea tried ( although, they don’t have the same money the others do ).

    • Dj Smith Nothing, they welcome the help. They were selling shirts that said “Rather be Russian than a Democrat”. I’m an independent and I didn’t want to be a Democrat or a republican because I want to just vote for the best candidate but this division has totally turned me off against republicans

    • mike bronicki | August 3, 2019 at 10:38 AM | Reply

      @You You fun fact: the 12 states most dependent on federal aid all voted for tRump. Moochers.

      maybe they just do not care……..like trump

  6. Let’s not forget Fox news accusing Michelle and Barack Obama of that “terrorist fist bump.” I’ll never get over that ever.

    • Mike Reseigh | August 3, 2019 at 8:53 AM | Reply

      @William George and thE right is the party of cruelty, lies , racism , hate and open corruption. Trump seemed very pliable when had his meeting with Putin that he wouldn’t even let his own staff in for. Then he cowers to Pootie in front of the world. That’s a traitor.

    • @William George Do you honestly think Michelle Obama is a trans? I think you’d be wise to look in the mirror before you call anyone else a “brainwashed nut”.

    • i look forward to the fox news tears as the day comes when they end their poisonous broadcasts and close their hateful studios

  7. Beto almost won Texas. Ann Richards was Governor of Texas. A Democrat

    You better look in the republican party INSTEAD of criticizing the democratic party…they are trying to help poor people instead of the republicans who are filling their pockets…

      @Terry Normalcy – In principle I agree with you. However there is a small minority of people who don’t think we are all created equal and they are controlling the world’s wealth. The rate of return being demanded by these oligarchs has bankrupted us and is ruining whole countries, they will continue on because that is what they do with their time. Something needs to be done about them.

      Their pockets will never be full because their crook.

    • Go pick up the poop on your streets and be green and eat the rats.

      @MIchael Rigby so you must love Dear Leader’s hiring of convicted pedophile George Nader, and the countless lobbyists and former executives running America’s government agencies? “drain the swamp” right? Hypocrite.

    Wow!! For once I agree with a republican!! I also wish for trump to just go away…lol

    Sorry but people get what the deserve! They chose Trump. The Republicans chose to how down and kiss his ring instead of holding him accountable. Hopefully the Southern District will jail him!

    Lol,retirements? Yeah right,all the rats are finally jumping ship.

  14. Joe Fernandez | August 3, 2019 at 1:46 AM | Reply

    People not wanting to work with trump. His wife not wanting tto sleep in the same bed with him. To use trump’s own word’s that were tweeted about elijah cummings, TOO BAD.

    • MIchael Rigby | August 3, 2019 at 9:26 AM | Reply

      The ‘Trump” marriage was over when he announced his candidacy. Trumpf and Melania were living in separate houses in 2015.The marriage just as phony as Hillary and Bill’s….

  15. This all boils down to how racist and how dumb America really is. Let’s be clear here, the 2020 electoin is not just a fight for the future of America, it’s a fight for the very soul of the USA.

    • Lucid Dreamer | August 3, 2019 at 11:19 AM | Reply

      @Brian Powell It’s anyone’s “place” to comment. It’s your place to articulate that I’m an absolute fool if that were your conclusion; that would not “offend” or “traumatize” me, at all. Trump has no aspirations “to become president for life.” The distortions of the perceptions of millions of humans is astounding. The self-imposed torment and turmoil of the minds of most humans is profoundly sad. Most derive a perverted “comfort” by nurturing, cultivating and disseminating fear, to their detriment. “I fear that will be the last meaningful election…” Fear is the fundamental prism through which most project, and perceive, their world view. Revel within the self-imposed suffering of that consciousness; I am infinitely apart from it, in a realm you cannot imagine.

    • It was racism and general inbred stupidity from small town white America that elected tRump and is still to stupid to explain why or to see tRump for what he is.

    • @firefox5926 According to some of the crazies, if the dotard loses, there will be a civil war.

    • @D.E.B. B A lot of ppl voted for him, but that doesn’t mean they were all like him. Many voted for him because they felt disenfranchised from the politcal system or economically squeezed. That’s how popularist leaders gain power, they jump on a crumbling system, promise the moon, and fail to deliver while blaming some other group for all the issues. Remember, Hilary won the popular vote, so I have to believe there are more decent ppl than racists, bigots and morons in the US.

    It would be better for these “retiring” Republicans put in their vote for impeachment before leaving. Their votes will speak volume and they will be known for standing up for democracy and decency.

      EXACTLY!!!!! They may be ending their political career by quitting… but if your quitting anyway, why not make a stand. Be remembered for at least making the right decision for your country

    • Diane d'Lune | August 3, 2019 at 7:30 AM | Reply

      Very good point!

    • BRENDA VIGEANT | August 3, 2019 at 7:43 AM | Reply

      You’re right. Historians will not be kind to them if they stay silent. They will be viewed as cowards who ran away from their oath to protect and serve the nation. Peace and patience neighbour 🇨🇦

      Good idea but it won’t happen.

  17. Just Remember…45 & family are facing another fraud charge which will make it 3 in 3 years with fines & convictions to date of over $30 Million…
    America has a Criminal in Charge of the Country who should be in jail and not in the White House…His ravings are that of a lunatic

    • And, California just passed the law that requires all presidential candidates to submit 5 yrs of tax returns before they can be put on the ballot.
      I do believe at least some of the chickies are comin home to roost….
