    Bernie 2020, bring back America to it’s American peoples

    • @Dragonice Lakeoffire Democratic Socialism is not Communism. These big bang pow words only serve to scare and frighten the unread. Try to look up “socialism” videos if you can ‘bring yourself to stomach’ it so to speak. You’ll know that communism happened because of a great many things that happened to GENERAL socialism back when it was ancient and countries were trying new things to manage people.

      Screw that. I like that Bernie doesn’t lie about the fact that his policies will destroy the middle class but i like having my own house and my own yard and property for my family to enjoy. Call me selfish but i really dont want to give that up because Bernie wants to give my money to everyone else. Ive worked hard to be in a good spot and so can anyone else if they put in the work. Imagine trying to save for a house if you’re giving 70% of your earnings to gov. Its impossible.

    • @TheAileZX2 America will never be a socialist country!

      HAIL TRUMP!!! 🤚🤚🤚

      THIS IS MAGA COUNTRY!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  3. The whole administration has that haunted I have no soul face.

    • Cuz the are on a list provided by Russian intelligence of people they can leverage because they have something on them. And then the Russians leak it. And the civil unrest they are fomenting grows.

  7. Here we go….. military industrial complex gets another gimp to help line their pockets with our tax dollars and then they turn around and cut 3 million off food assistance.

      Bingo on the military industrial complex. But forget the free handouts. Should only be given to those who really need it. Id rather put the little bit of exta money i earn towards providing a good life for my son than give it to the millions who abuse those funds.

      @ thiskidkatits …So you are more concerned about your tax money going to help Americans living in poverty than funding the military industrial complex, I really am not surprised that America is circling the drain when I read comments like yours.

    • thiskidkatits | July 24, 2019 at 9:30 AM | Reply

      Neg. id rather cut the defense budget as well as cut money going to people who abuse the system. Wouldnt you agree?

    Msnbc has NO issue w this guy. Think about that. Out of all the things they’ve complained about, this Ratheon guy gets the “okie doke.” For those not paying attention, what does that tell you about the media?

    • Mike Nunyabizness | July 23, 2019 at 6:30 PM | Reply

      It tells me you are a paid troll posting propaganda. I am SS your posts and reporting you to the FBI and House security council. Traitor or troll, we will find you.

    • thiskidkatits | July 23, 2019 at 6:59 PM | Reply

      A little logic got you triggered huh Mike? Don’t want people to think for themselves do ya? Don’t like when people question the media huh? Your communism is showing 👉

    • Mike Nunyabizness | July 24, 2019 at 5:27 AM | Reply

      @thiskidkatits It tells me you are a troll posting lies. That’s why I already reported you. Weep all you want princess.

  11. wow, that’s weird… MSNBC talked for 3 minutes without trashing Trump.

    • thiskidkatits | July 23, 2019 at 6:29 PM | Reply

      Its because this guy is a military industrial complex guru. Showing their true colors. Bunch of dems voted for him too. The media is the biggest threat to the people and this is a great example.

    And the corruption of Trumps cabinet never ends, another lobbyist as a department head.

    So where did the story on Trump suing New York State and the Democratic Ways and Means committee go? Disappeared as it was being watched.

      You nailed it, orange man filled the swamp with all the lobbyists he could find, he’s worse than bad, he’s evil.

    Future-felon # what?

  17. Trump loves surrounding himself with Gulf War veterans or people who never saw combat. Maybe he should try hearing more voices from people who served after 9/11. If you’ve studied HW Bush’s war, you know it wasn’t much of one.

  18. 90-8. Meltdown time!

  19. Right on thru the revolving door..spinning like an out of control carousel

  20. Yay, another lobbyist in Trump’s cabinet! Can we hire someone who is ready to serve the country, not the special interests please?
