    Boo hoo! Someone did not speak the right way too him and it was a girl!! He is such a child and it was absurd! He needs to fire whoever told him it is okay. And by the way…stop trying to live up to Obama…you never will!

    The hand movements and hand “spreading” must be a diversion from the actual size…same way a lot of meaningless words to try and appear smart diverts attention away from a meaningless brain.

    • It was a good magic show. I thought his hands were as big as Shaquille O’Neal’s hands. What a ‘deception’. This could be the word to describe his presidency.

    Trump is good at name calling. he’s on brand bulling and slandering the American people

    • thats the name of the game… “deplorables” etc etc.. lol have you just noticed that politicans do that for the first time watching Trump?

    • hes just better than Democrats embarassing attempts to label people.. im getting tired of Trump winning so much

  4. Pp trumpakov called himself the second coming of god today. Cult members beware, lightning bolts are dangerous

    • Their churches should spontaneously combust, while they’re bringing in the sheaves!

    • @Carrie nice

    • And he’s your president 😂🤣😂😂

    • @Mya Goodbody as teddy Roosevelt said…I love my country, I do not love the president. In the first couple weeks in office, trump declared that he should be on Mt. Rushmore. When asked who he should replace, trumpakov said that he’d only ever heard of one of those old guys. Geeeneus

    • John Kurtz
      A little reminder that people who call themselves the second coming of Christ and their followers commited suicide.

  5. Ten years ago you wouldn’t have been able to sell the story of this administration as fiction.

    • hahhah Don that is completely ironic seeing how much fake news there is about Trump… e.g. “very fine people” comment, people STILL think he was talking about Nazis when he was literally saying the EXACT opposite

    • and people think that Trump is a Russian asset controlled by Putin lmao…

      Don Anderson and in 100 years, this will be a night time horror story for kids..!

    • Don Anderson
      Shame mate🌹 that is quite something to be able to say!!

      I wonder if your brother was like our Dad..? He was very black n white…. it’s was either right or wrong, he would not stand for “BS artists”… zero…, I think he’d seen the results of the Pacific war and the cost of selfish people….. so lucky to have that start from him👍

    • Robie Robertson
      Didn’t know about that… but living in a nation with “universal healthcare “.. I can’t imagine living in the US

    let him (Trumpeltrampel) speak, speak and speak. With every sentence he throws out, we can clearly see that Trump is a little bit ill, crazy, irrational and sometimes dumb, silly and flexible as a brick.

    • I thought it was clear that he was mentally ill, severely affected, long prior to the election. I say it’s enough now. Please vote him out. Those who do not understand by now, probably aren’t going to change in close time,..

    • stephen glover | August 22, 2019 at 12:10 AM | Reply

      Is he as ill as Joe Biden…….ha ha ha ha – but the little bit ill, crazy, irrational guy, is doing good things everywhere you look, border, economy, china (do you think any democratic president is going to tackle China like Trump is, do you not understand that China seriously needs to be addressed, what is wrong with you people)

  7. every single day. Trump keeps sounding like hitler.

    This is Donald Trump lighting the match for some unhinged person, right now….for the next Mass Shooting…..

      @David Watson you failed.

    • free2express08 | August 21, 2019 at 10:34 PM | Reply

      Sadly true. Law enforcement has already stopped a few people who had planned mass shootings – one who was anti-semitic.

    • True. And the illegitimate president needs to be held accountable! Time for removal. Vote blue.

    • David Watson wrong

    • @David Watson lol wtf is going on here? there are so many delusional people saying irrational nonsense… its like listening to inmates talk at an insane assylum.

      you could show them a clip of Trump talking about judging people by the content of their charachter and not by the colour of their skin and that everyone should unite under this way of thinking… but of course MSNBC NEVER shows how hes constantly preaching this…. NYT literally edited a title the other day because they were honest about Trump condemning racists etc etc

      instead you have accusations that make zero sense about some theory where Trump must be using code to communicate with white supremacists in order to orchestrate the next mass shooting… its absolute absurdity

  9. What can you say about Trump? He’s racist, incompetent, psychotic, just generally disgusting– the total nutcase package. Our President, ladies and gentlemen!

    • Wado Waleli not for long.

    • @Mya Goodbody You forget, Mya, that this Chosen One also happens to be item #1 on the list above, so don’t expect that miracle anytime soon. Take care.

    • His daughter and son-in-law are actuqlly jewish XD keep calling him racist,it doesnt change thr truth

    • @Hans Solo Those are just complications for an already-deeply confused Trump mental process. He probably has a “do later” file in the back of his brain for matters like that. Actually, it’s probably more like a shredder– rationalization, you know. Take care.

    • Hans Solo another laughable troll

  10. This is why he want to buy Greenland he needs a place to hide

    It’s almost like calling those who scream about Jews replacing them “very fine people” is a sure way to earn the Jewish vote. Makes sense to me.

  12. Actually, only a weak person would have to so desperately resort to fear-mongering and lies, as a strategy, as much as this President.

    • @Kim B – “Its amazing you have not noticed” is not a figure of speech. It literally *is* you telling me that it’s amazing that I haven’t noticed something, which is not merely condescending but presumptuous. Don’t play “smartest person in the room” and don’t “Kim-splain.” It’s rude, and now you know. I could get testy with you and say, “Don’t blame me if you don’t know the meaning of the words you’re speaking,” but I’ll say this instead: “Why is it so hard for you to simply say, “Okay, yeah, I see what you mean. My bad”? Just say that.

    • @wolfman02.. right.. Trump lies about things.. Obama, Bush, Clinton etc all did things like that.. you are not proving me wrong, your example is entirely consistent with everything i said.. all of the dot points you mentioned applies to Bernies Sanders, Andrew Yang, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden etc etc.. they are all “divisive”.. none more so than Trump

      and i have seen some of these lists “Trump told 10 000 lies” etc etc, they included things that are clearly not lies, the claim of 10 000 lies is a lie itself… these so-called “fact checkers” are just as bad, its like they get their propaganda staight from media matters sometimes lol

      i hope you dont believe in this fake news that Trump called nazis “very fine people”.. even though he literally said the exact opposite..

    • lol and my comment was figurative, not literal.. im not “playing” “smartest person in the room”… you are “being” the dumbest person in the room.. or maybe thats Blake, hard to tell

    • @Kim B – You mention Hillary Clinton. Well, when I said “as much as this President,” that’s a measure of frequency and extent, and I can tell you that not even Hillary is anything like Trump, because here’s the difference between the two.

      Unlike Trump, Hillary would not go to a rally and say, “There’s a bill that all the Republicans signed, and it’s called the ____ bill (and meanwhile there’s no bill called that),” because if she did, people would say, “There’s no bill called that. What are you talking about? Have you gone crazy?” And she’d look like a crazy person. She’d want to avoid that as much as possible. Trump doesn’t care, and I’ll explain why in a moment.

      And Hillary would also not want to say that the bill in question did _____ when it didn’t, because then people would say, “Hold on. Never mind that the bill isn’t called by that name, it also does NOT do that. But the real question is, why are you saying it does do that? It clearly doesn’t. Aren’t you supposed to be a lawyer? Aren’t you supposed to know how to read legal language? Can’t you read and understand a piece of legislation? Are you THAT unqualified to do your job, and yet you want to be PRESIDENT??” It would shame and embarrass her.

      She has enough of a capacity to embarrass herself without wanting to fall into ridicule by telling SUUUUCH blatant and obvious lies that can be fact-checked THAT easily. I’m not saying she won’t be dishonest. I believe she absolutely has been, but she wouldn’t do something SO blatant as to speak about imaginary bills.

      Trump, however, has done this. He doesn’t care about humiliating himself with lies. He has no shame. He feels he can lie to his supporters because he essentially thinks, “My supporters believe anything I tell them. And even if someone comes along and UNDENIABLY PROVES to them that I’m wrong, they STILL won’t believe I was wrong. They’ll deny it and ignore it. I can pull out a gun and shoot people and I won’t lose any supporters.”

      That’s the difference between Trump and most other politicians in the US. Most have SOME shame. Most don’t want the world calling them idiots and will self-edit SOMEWHAT to prevent that from happening. Most don’t take it for granted that they have SUCH a cult-like following that they can get away with saying ANYTHING, and it’s because most don’t have this proven to them time and time again by their voters.

      This is extremely dangerous, to give that kind of power to any politician.

    • Kim B look at little Kimmy. Thinks she is so clever. Another pessimistic tool

  13. Bernie Sanders is Jewish. Bernie is a good person.

    • Jewish Bernie is good man way better than Trump is and I don’t Suport what Israel do i like Jewish people look, we just express our opinions Trump don’t like nobody who do not agree with him that means he hav a mental problem.

  14. Trump doesn’t pay taxes but he decides how taxpayer money is spent. Doesn’t that seem odd?

    For how much longer is congress going to tollerate this spoilled 3rd grader as #45 , 25 the 45th

  16. Trump apparently thinks that observing the religion of Judaism means supporting militarism, ultra-nationalism, racism, and shooting unarmed protestors.

    Many American Jews would disagree with him…thankfully.

  17. Trump was able to pull the evil ones from the darkness. Can you see them now? I can

  18. Folks are damned tired of seeing this low life acting reckless and disgusting everyday. He has no compassion and no willingness to understand people or anything. Just runs his mouth.

    He said the tiki torch carrying Republicans were good people with their anti Jewish chants

    United States pays for Israel’s Healthcare but they won’t do the same for its own citizens
