  1. I dearly hope this is how the impeachment process feels for trump, it’s called Karma! 😔

      CynAnne1  …………..   Let’s anticipate when this period will be remembered as a clever black comedy where all the bad guys get killed in the end . In Darwin Award fashion .

    • And Robert Byrd was Hillary Clinton’s mentor.

    Trump can’t tell the difference between lynching and impeachment? Maybe we should impeach him then lynch him and then he will know the difference.

  3. Solipsistic manbaby whose father was arrested at a Clan rally says racist things. This isn’t a surprise but it’s still abhorrent.

    • I don’t believe Trump is solipsistic but rather a malignant narcissist who most ABSOLUTELY suffers from the Dunning-Kruger Effect proven by his self absorbed, idiotic actions, statements and tweets…….again…… TWEETS! What other respected world leader behaves this way? Anyone who tries to justify his behavior most likely also suffers from the same. #CountryOverPartisanship #permenantlyevict45NOW

  4. guy this was an attempt to distract from Bill Taylor’s testimony which was a bombshell apparently, make sure we stay focused!

      @Fiery Voice Only a moron would take sarcasm as truth.

    • @Liberal in Oklahoma Ahhh, I see where you’re confused. You think the Democratic party isn’t a party of racists. You’re also confusing The “Southern Democrats” with modern republicans. Bill Clinton who came with the 3 strikes law was a southern democrat. The 3 strikes law was the most harmful and detrimental thing that happened to the black community since integration. A form of genocide. Trump is the one who ended the three strikes and your out law. With the aid of devils like Harris, Pelosie and Newsome and Brown (All Demon-crats) California became a prison state. Obama was the first Northern Dem since JFK and he did absolutely nothing to help the black community with it’s most dire circumstances. The Democratic party traded the noose for the vote and are playing the Pied Piper. And through socialism they plan to completely end the idea of liberty all together. Hillary Clinton referred to black men as super predators and she is a friend of the man who exposed over 1000 black women to HIV. I can go on and on about the evils of the dems who only wanted statues in South Carolina destroyed because they were statues of Democratic leaders and they want to hide that history. You’re an aider and an abetter to their overall agenda through your ignorance.

    • Fiery Voice words, “Looks like you’re still driving home that KKK message”

      Yup, because there are fine people on both sides

    • Fiery Voice – Food for thought

      1991: A book by John O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, quoted Trump’s criticism of a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump at first denied the remarks, but later said in a 1997 Playboy interview that “the stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true.”

      Fiery Voice It isn’t white pointy hoods anymore, they modernized to red maggot caps.
      Most, if not every, programs to help the poor and middle classes have been started by Progressives and opposed by Conservatives, Regressives being better fitted, and now they are trying to cut Medicaid and Welfare to pay for the tax cuts to the very rich.
      My school year was from November to March because I grew up as a migrant worker but it is apparent I took to education better than you or Trump.

  6. he refused black people tenancy to property he owned or owns throughout decades and now he’s crying that he’s being treated like one. 😂😂😂

  7. Maybe if we lynched him he could tell the difference in the end.

      You’re a moron. Do you not know that lynching blacks was created by the democrat party? Didn’t you know that the democrat party created the KKK? Didn’t you know whites in Europe were also lynched? Didn’t you know lynching whites was very common???
      Wait! You’re a leftist. You people are too lazy to research and read. You people are incapable of thinking for yourselves. You people are Useful Idiots.

  8. NO. It’s not like lynching AT ALL. He just HATES to be held accountable (for his crimes), is what it is. Dump steady stays trying it, SMFH….

    • Agreeable Dragon I’m really sick of you tRumpettes constantly go “what crimes?”. Look you dumba$¥ your lord and master is stripping your country of anything worthwhile. Other than how much money it’s costing the American people, I’m happy he spends so much time golfing, it keeps him from screwing things up any further than ha has.

    • It’s a real crime that that sociopath even thought he should personally host the G7 in his personal home/property.

    • Stay tuned to CSPAN for coverage Wed am re: the sociopath and his abuse of power. Rachael Maddow says she will be glued to the station as will I.

    Give the Imbecile more rope.

  10. Remember, Trump wanted to lynch the Central Park 5

    • ​@salmonline I call all those that still believe that Trump will win the 2020 election… The Trumpeter Disciples… Because every one of them is just like him, they all like to toot their own horn but couldn’t play a tune if their life depended on it.

    • @Sherry Messer What exactly is the Dems platform? Just a few examples

      How would Trump feel if his beloved Stephen Miller suffered the same fate as Leo Frank?

    • p ford I’m sorry. are you saying you don’t understand what their saying? Get out of here!

    • But even in ’77🤷🏽‍♂️… racially charged White Anglo Saxon males( aka immigrants) were #Lynching & #Raping folks.. trying to intimidate a portion of America, that doesn’t scare easy! 😒

    • So these people on his heels don’t want a great AMerica. CAN’T ANY OF YOU PEOPLE SEE THIS?

    • @Snowman374th Nah, Nazi Germany wasnt fun for everyone🤷🏽‍♂️😒🤷🏽‍♂️

  12. Hand him over to the Kurds. Let’s see if they lynch him.

  13. He just keeps sinking lower.

    Trump stuck his own head in the noose. Now It’s time to kick the stool out from under him.

    • So he cant say the word but you can fantasize about the actual lynching of someone? What a complete asinine view of this subject.

    • T Tullock he started it. Your orange buddy is going to be impeached because of high crimes and misdemeanors that he committed drawing our country into an international mess. Because of his idiocy we make fun of it. If you don’t like it…it’s your problem and the answer is stay on your own Fox News sites where they sold their souls to him. Troll. He is vile.

    Now you know what The Central Park 5 felt like: Only they were innocent – you, on the other hand, are guilty as SIN you should be lynched for real!

  16. I mean, he’s hanging himself, so he’s not wrong.

    • carolyn carter | October 22, 2019 at 4:27 PM | Reply

      You are correct……the noose is getting tighter and tighter by his own hand.

    • Capt wrote re lynching: “I mean, he’s hanging himself, so he’s not wrong.” ….. It is wrong. Hanging yourself is suicide, not lynching. Lynching is when you are hanged by a mob without a trial.

    • We wish.

    • @Witt Wittwer I mean, it was supposed to be a bad joke.

      But I can’t at all be mad at you for knowing the difference between the two, either, so cheers 🍻

    Just when I thought I couldn’t hate him any more, he does this.

    • Helen Stanford agree, i hate this pos fake president more each day. trumpanzee is nothing but a misogynistic narcissistic sociopath racist and pathological liar. Boy gotta go and ASAP. Impeach, lynch, whatever

    • You people full of hate anyway. You just want to blame someone but yourself for it.

    • Meanwhile, *most* predictably…
      *’Snowflake #45’* had *yet another ‘twittyfeed tantrum’* today, *whining* about how ‘unfair’ *everyone’s* been *to* him. 🍼👶🍼
      Poor put-upon prezzy… 😏

    …every time he is in a corner…he pulls the race card…here we go again….!

    • He is not pulling the race card MSNBC always do it. The truth hurts

    • Here we go with the racist crap again. I think channel played that about a thousand times already.

    • He didn’t pull the race card. It’s obvious he was simply talking about the ways of mob mentality as we are seeing with the left. It’s simple minded people like you who can’t read between the lines. As a black man I’m tired of the Alphabet Boy Networks telling me who’s racist. The racists are the ones who try to pander to me convincing me I have a booggieman to fear while being the very ones destroying my community. This isn’t going to turn out in your favor at all. Every time they push this b.s. they awaken another sleeping dem who either will sit out the next election or vote Trump

  19. Before we lynch him can we give him to the Kurds to kick around for a day.
