  1. Trump and his cult wanna destroy everything we stand for we wont let them#FactsFirst

    • @generationofswine #Facts

    • Like open borders, killing babies, and robbing tax payers bling. You’re damned right we are trying to destroy that garbage..

    • @Grif Torres Your opinion on his mark on history is with out a doubt, an opinion that you have as well as other peoples. However it is clearly an opinion and not a general consensus. Yes, politicans do make money in various ways during time spent in office. The clinton foundation made 10 of millions of dollars from saudi gov before a big arms deal. The foundation also received large sums of money from big oil corperations. I am not justifying any of trumps business actions but if you judge him on his records you need to do the same for all politicians. Cherry picking arguments is an illegitimate way to make a point

    • @Mighty Mouse The fact is that the Clinton Foundation does actual charitable work, and NONE of it’s funds in any way personally enrich the Clintons, unlike Trump,s “charitable” scams and frauds. There’s no evidence whatsoever that any of the donations you mentioned had any influence on any official decisions made by Clinton or anybody else in their official capacities. There’s nothing remotely resembling any equivalence between the two cases at all, and you know it. Why do you keep making excuses for Trump’s criminality? What are you getting out of Trump other than being entertained by his bragging and insults of people you don’t like, especially people of color? Why do you think that this is only “tit for tat” rather than a real inquiry into actual admitted crime by this administration?? Why do you want a dictator who is above the law in Trump and the fascist police-state it will bring? Why do you believe that a government that actually serves it’s citizens, instead of enriching some wealthy theocrats and wannabe oligarchs is somehow an “evil, socialist/communist tyranny”? Don’t even start with the old PeeWee Hermann [“I know you are, but what am I?”] arguments about how the Democrats are guilty of everything the criminal Trump administration is blatantly doing, here.

  2. The Trump tax cuts were a giveaway for the corporate class and people on Main Street are the big losers. States that voted for Trump have been the hardest hit economically. That’s why we are most likely headed for a recession in 2020.

  3. With doubling the debt and a tax cut for the wealthy that disappears for Americans family not surprised

    • @r385671 The tea baggerz, who are now all in on the Freedom Caucus now, were all upset about keeping the banking, insurance, and auto industries going in Obama’s bailouts being too expensive. You don’t hear any of those phonies say anything about how all of those industries paid back every dime with interest.

    • @John Swo Plus… The farmer bail because of trump’s trade war cost the US tax payer MORE and the money is mainly going to corporate farms that will NEVER be paid back!


    • @Gary Davidson – Also, the trade war tariffs get passed on to consumers.

  4. “The greatest economy in history”? Only if you’re already rich, apparently.

  5. trump said it out loud to his wealthy friends when he passed the tax cut.. ” I just made you all very rich”
    Meanwhile the average and poor American citizen get nothing but lies and no wage increase.

  6. Trump and the GOP have done NOTHING for the middle class…NOTHING!! They’ve done everything they could to make life harder for the working class.

    Republicans have Failed America

  8. USA is turning bluer everyday

  9. The only thing doing well “under Trump” is the Stock Market, but it’s doing well in *_spite_* of Trump, and not *_because_* of Trump.

  10. Extraordinary salesman? lmao, yea to idiots

    • I’m an Eskimo, and I love all this ice I bought. (DAMMIT.) Winning!

      “As Democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron” – Henry Louis Mencken
      The issue is: The US Constitution is apparently full of phony and false clauses and amendments … like Donald Trump saying, the “phony Emoluments Clause” … next will be the totally false Second Amendment maybe?

    • @Max Covfefe Well Max all you need now is a bridge oops sorry I meant fridge to store it in, I have a few if you’d like to make a offer!

  11. Those who were already doing well are temporarily doing better. Those working two jobs to feed their children haven’t seen much change. Those who didn’t even need a tax cut are chuckling.

  12. Largest wealth gap since the Great Republican Depression (Not the one in 2008 but the one in 1929)

    • It’s called the 2008 GOP Great Recession. Sadly, the Trump’s GOP would never be able to meet such a disaster as BHO did. The Trump team is filled with users who only know how to fill their own pockets while spewing lies and illegally ignoring the congress.

    • For being the party of “fiscal responsibility”, they sure do DESTROY THE ECONOMY on a pretty regular basis!!!

    A president is impeachable if he attempts to subvert the Constitution. – James Madison

  14. Are we worse off with trump? Is there a question there?

  15. *When an honest man discovers he has been mistaken through the revelation of TRUTH & FACTS, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest!*
    *Farmers AGAINST Trump! 🇺🇸🥳🍻*

    • Farmer Bob Go farmers. We care!

    • Well I am praying that farms like you can hold on and get through this. We need farms to produce organic food or people who prefer to healthy will die. Hope you and your family get through this.

    • @Timbone Out here in the Midwest, they did NOT know, unfortunately. If they had run ads telling the truth about certain things (such as that he never paid his workers, or that he was born a multi-millionaire and doesn’t give a crap about those of us who are not rich), I guarantee you he would not have gotten the votes he did here.

  16. 30 billion on a biggly beautiful wall that you can cut through with a 100 dollar saw.

    Just ask my in-laws who just had to sell their farm that was in the family for almost a hundred years. Reptilian party is trash

    • Ivanka speads for Quincy Jones so sorry for your in-laws, not fair all going to the top 1%.

    • Ivanka speads for Quincy Jones | November 6, 2019 at 5:01 PM | Reply

      @SL *** thanks for your kind words and yes it’s very sad especially when you see it happen right in front of you and what it does to a family. There are many families going through the same struggles right now. Vote blue and end this reptilian party nghtmre

    • I lost my whole savings and took a job making 45% less and then got laid off bc it was too slow.

    • Ivanka speads for Quincy Jones | November 6, 2019 at 6:02 PM | Reply

      @Don Johnson so sorry to hear that bro, I’ve been there and it sucks. What kind of work do you do?

    • Very sad.

    I’m doing about the same, but, I’m retired on Disability, so my life is very limited anyway. My adult children say they are worse off, due to increases in energy and food costs. They aren’t seeing the raises in pay they were promised, or the raise was less than predicted. My stress level watching the news about Trump has certainly increased. I do have major concerns about the economy and healthcare costs. Not sure what the president is going to be able to do now that he’s in the middle of an impeachment. I hope he is impeached, this country will be better for it.

    • he will more likely be impeached not removed. a simple majority will disqualify him for future elections

    • Keith Soderlund | November 6, 2019 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      Ya then he should go to a Toxic Waste dump!!

    • lol time will tell and the g.o.p. dosnt care about thed military, or the people of United states.
      they only care if the dollar is valuable worldwide just wait till they really screw the pooch and it turns into monopoly money

  19. I wasn’t polled – Add me to the Worse off category

  20. Roland Peralez | November 6, 2019 at 3:36 PM | Reply

    I’m worse off, lost my heath insurance, work two jobs and Favor when I can. Republican Voting blue 2020

    • Sorry your party sold their souls to Trump. Maybe one day, people like you can get it back. Then we can have reasonable discussions based on FACTS! And ANYONE who says “fake news” gets punched in the throat!
