  1. President Trump is not Racist, accdg to Trump and Sean Hannity, and David Duke, and his 32% base.

      @Deer Slayer Slabaugh The qualifier here is: Is character a factor in determining approval of a president’s job performance. Many would say, no. That’s why his approval rating is still a respectable 45% or 46%.

      @Vic Drago It’s a matter of perception. Your assuming that everything you believe is the truth, when you claim that anyone who disagrees with you “can’t handle” it. No one is perfect. So everything you believe CAN’T be the truth. It’s called “cognitive dissonance.” Research the term.

  2. I’m not surprised…but what’s surprising is they’re still calling this ill individual a *”president”.*

    Baltimore, isn’t that the place where Kushner Companies were found to have been sited for renting out rat infested properties to people? So essentially what Trump is saying is that the “corruption” in Baltimore is because of his son-in-law/member of the Trump administration, and by association, Trump himself? Yeah, seems Trump just brought up an issue that he himself is partly responsible for.

      @Lala Land <- This person gets it

    • Rats, mice, maggots and mould. There’s also a class action law suit against Kushner Companies’ real estate management arm, Westminster Management regarding unlawful and fallacious fees they charged tenants. I think there’s around 3,000 complainants involved.

    • Hey commie! Guilt by association has been ruled out by American courts 230 yrs ago. You know…you may know J-Z that does not make *YOU* a rapper.

    • His own crook of a father was arrested years ago for the slums he owned there! His scum son in law is carrying on the family tradition!!

  4. What a joke 😂

    The comedy of 45 calling someone corrupt or racist

  6. “I’m not a puppet YOU’RE the puppet!” lol…

    • Dems: Baltimore is not rat infested and YOU’RE ALL racists!

    • Dems have ran Baltimore into the ground over the last 50 years. In 1989, a Democrat, Thomas Miller, the Maryland State Senate leader, called Baltimore a ghetto and warzone. Bernie years down the road said it’s akin to a third world country. Nothing has changed. Repubs take over – golden age. Lowest unemployment ever for blacks. Orkin’s top 10 rattiest cities list – all run by Dems.

    • @Kip McEwen *”According to the U.S. Census Bureau, national poverty rate was 12.3 percent or 39.7 million Americans in 2017. These states have the highest percentages of poverty in the country: Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, South Carolina, Arizona, and Georgia.”* Republican states. Facts hate the right wing.

    • “Cummings district is the *second-wealthiest majority-black district in the country,* with a $58,000 median household income, trailing Maryland’s 4th Congressional District, which includes parts of the Prince George’s and Anne Arundel counties. Cummings’ district is also the *second-most-well-educated majority-black district* because 37% of the residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher, trailing Georgia’s 4th District”* #FactsHateRacists

    Comrade Trump is good at pointing out everything he dislikes about America but offers zero in the way of solutions…SO WHAT GOOD IS HE TOO AMERICA!!!

      He doesn’t care. He doesn’t expect to suffer his consequences. Let everyone else pay. Get him out. And don’t forget soul brother to the Taliban: pence.

      He does not offer! He does! Go back to Moscow Mitch baby. Get outa the country shame face!

    • Stop calling this EMBICILE “comrade”. He,wants to be our dictator but we dont want him. If you dont en outage him by calling him names like “comrade”, “dictator”,”prez”, “POTUS”. THEN HIS attitude will see we as Americans have no respect for him. He does not deserve respect t of any kind. Dont vive him aNy. LOWLIFE BAST……

    “I’m the least racist person in the world!” LMFAO Yeah and I am the pope!

    • As Trump said, it’s the race card when the Democratic Marxists fail.

    • If you’re the Pope then you’re a pedophile.

    • Robert Heintze | July 31, 2019 at 10:18 AM | Reply

      So Trump is the least racist out of 7 and a half BILLION people on this planet? And many of his supporters are delusional enough, to actually believe this! If this is true, I have some phoney properties I’d like to sell him, and acquire a portion of his $4 billion!

    • Robert Heintze | July 31, 2019 at 10:26 AM | Reply

      @Chris Macola If he has changed (to a righteous heart) then why is he still insulting and attacking everyone whom he dislikes, or disagrees with? Most of his supporters keep insisting that character isn’t an important trait in a leader. Would you trust a true/genuine friend, whose character was suspect?…Then why wouldn’t you want this trait in your president? If you believe that this man has repented, I’m afraid that, like many of his base, you’re not as discerning as you THINK you are!

      @Chris Macola Obama was born in Hawaii (in 1961). Hawaii became the 50th state in 1959, so Obama IS a U.S. citizen, by birth! He took so long because, as a Harvard law school grad, he figured most Americans would be smart enough to know that, and decided it was ridiculous to have to prove that! That’s why he took so long.

    If Trump hates American Cities so much maybe he should, well you know

    I would love to know who’s calling the white house let alone black people from Baltimore lol

    • Yo! It’s 2019….Blacks are allowed to use phones and own them too.

    • Chris Garcia | July 31, 2019 at 12:04 PM | Reply

      @No GMO Joe Yo, you’re right it’s 2019, no one calls anyone. They text. My point was every time something happens, he or Sarah Sanders used to say the WH is getting flooded with calls and that Trump, the president of the United States is taking calls from average American’s. Come on people, wake up. Last time he said people were calling, the Gov’t was in a shutdown and no one was even there to answer the phone.

    • Chris Garcia | July 31, 2019 at 12:12 PM | Reply

      @RoadRage I’ll tell you Donald Trump is still the racist. He’s the president of the United States. All the states not just Republican states, who voted for him. If Baltimore is bad and mismanaging funds, it’s his infrastructure plan (or lack of) that’s failing. Every city has rat infested areas. I’m from NY, one of the dirtiest, rat infested cities in America. Kentucky is the 5th poorest state in the country. How come Trump isn’t pointing the corrupt finger at Moscow Mitch? His state took over 11 billion in welfare last year and their poverty rate is 14.8%, well below that of Maryland. Oh I know, because Mitch McConnell is white and doesn’t challenge Trump.

      Do some research before you respond to me with nonsensical statements, which have no facts or evidence behind them.

      Stay Partisan

  13. 45, no one is more corrupt than you…

    • @Whitey O’Banion proof? We got hilary’s proof

    • Robert Heintze | July 31, 2019 at 10:48 AM | Reply

      @Dino The Clinton’s ARE very corrupt and dishonest! But an honest person, doesn’t have to keep deflecting.and blaming everyone else, while refusing to own up to his own improprieties!

    • @Robert Heintze I can explain his deflections from my on point of view. It seems like the dems are attacking him at every angle with race, hate speech, or anything, i seen the headline on msnbc “bug interrupts trumps speech”. If you had the spotlight on you for every move you make with the fear that the dems will burn your reputation in any way they can. You would stay out of that spotlight. It seems he doesn’t agree with any of their accusations and is almost forced to deflect and defend his own reputation. For years they don’t even acknowledge that he won the election and was duly elected president. That is why, the Hillary’s are corrupt as well, fake documents causing chaos and defamation.

    • @Dino ok, I will take the bait. What are you talking about.

    Trump belongs in a straight Jacket and Padded room.

    • Why? You miss Hillary or that fake bratha Barry who followed the Bush doctrine to the letter? You still don’t know that the Bush/Clinton/Obama clans were one following a communist plan against this nation? WAKE UP!

    I just called the White House no one picked up, I’ll wait until the people from Baltimore finish calling.

    • How racist is it to mention the House’s skin color? It’s a House, okay, color is not important.

      Ha you didn’t call the correct number… try 1 – 8 0 0 – R A C I S T

    • @Andy Crosbie Why did you avoid mention number 9, 5, 4 and 3? They are different numbers, but they are still numbers . Racist of numbers you are!
