      That’s the nightmare, it just goes on, and on, and on, and we all cry into our pillows, night after wretched night.

      Why don’t we confess the truth about this world of pain? – THE DEVIL IS IN CHARGE.

    America, how much more can you handle? Just when you think they can’t go any lower, doll hands Donnie and friends constantly lower the bar and time and time again hit a new threshold of racist dog whistling unapologetic cruel pettiness. These people and anyone associated with this administration are disgusting beyond words.

    By his own disgusting standards, Melania Trump should be the first to be deported. The one crucial element why her and others like her aren’t even brought into the equation is the desired pigmentation of her skin by the likes of white supremacists such as Stephen Miller. Disgusting.

      Rob Donaldson that’s all msnbc has is fake news! This channel is so pathetic 🤣

      Grace Munich haha oh does that sting liberal?! Did I make you cry?! 🤣🤣 God Bless America and God bless President Trump! The greatest president we’ll ever see!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸 don’t like America?! LEAVE!

    • Andrew Campbell : I keep telling you, America: Trump uses Stalin’s methods, for a Nazi goal. Probably coached by Putin and his admirers, like Steve Bannon. Re-Write history, and take control of the media. It’s an old, old story . . . ✌️👍

    • American Parrot: I note that none of the Trump Trolls have ANYTHING that passes for an, “argument,” on this issue . . . Just, “emotions.” Racists and idiots. Your end is nigh . . . 🙂

    • Rob Donaldson : More Trump Trolling, from the fake who LIVES on the channel he hates, because he’s either paid to, or he’s just insecure and frightened. I don’t know which is a worse way to sell your soul to Satan? 🙂

  4. Anything that does not conform to their ideology they believe should be rewritten, including the Constitution’s Second Amendment’s ‘well regulated militia’ clause. How they have twisted that to protect assault weapons and monstrous magazines in the hands of terrorists and the insane is a crime against the right to live in peace.

    • And the morons line up to applaud his every stupid word they look so stupid tax breaks don’t help them no health care plan no infrastructure bill no voter protection laws and the debt of our country taking to new highs that will have to be paid back by their children or their social security being cut or another collapse economically they’re like sheep being led to the slaughter by the pied Piper of b*******

  5. I am a foreigner. Until this point in history i never realized how beautiful the text on the statue of liberty really is. Do not worry right wing snowflakes as i am not planning to try to immigrate to the us. But that text is beautiful.

    • …at least you dodged a bullet! (No pun) Save yourself from this crazy administration!

    • The immigrants must be desperate to want to go to America. What a violent, racist , aggressive and cruel country it has become.

    • @Holly Hocks
      If only the Native Americans had just managed to keep the foreigner filth out Trump wouldn’t still be here robbing the world of money and dignity. Sorry Native Americans I’m blaming you. 😳😢

    • @Holly Hocks Ain’t that the truth

    • Angelena Boden | August 14, 2019 at 10:46 AM | Reply

      @Holly Hocks so true. My brother lives there and I used to visit a lot. Never again. Sorry.

  6. Captain Stupid has gotten away with too much already, and knows he’s not getting a second term in office. Now he’s really kicking it into high gear! And we ain’t seen nothing yet!!!

  7. Soon traitor trumpanzee’s Administration will rewrite the constitution…. and traitor become the dictator…..

  8. Ken “give us your independently wealthy poor” Cuccinelli.

    *For well qualified immigrants only.

    Someone get that man a dictionary for “tired” and “poor”. Then ask him if he or anyone in his family has ever been a government “charge”. Finally take his office chair away so he can stand on his own two feet.

  10. But if donald j. trump haven’t been paying his taxes….and is still trying to hide his taxes, then could it be that: donald j. trump is ‘a public charge’ towards all tax payers?!

    They’re all such Mfrs. let’s get rid of them with a blue tidal wave in 2020.

    Yet another Trump a**hole. Thank 45 for this continuation of taking the U.S. further down the toilet.

    • Rob Donaldson | August 14, 2019 at 5:27 AM | Reply

      MORE msnbc FAKE NEWS… this law was passed and signed by BUBBA CLINTON 23 years ago. MORE pathetic media propaganda!

  13. Is the Supreme Court basically a bought off lame duck?

  14. Another frigging psychopath in the Stephen Miller mould, hired by “Only The Best People” Trump. The Republican Party, Trump, The Right, Conservatives and Fascists, all continue to trash everything America stands for. When the government changes, and it will, eventually, The Right should be hunted down and locked up. Trump and other Republicans use undocumented immigrants as workers. Republican farmers, used undocumented immigrants. Now, there isn’t any and their produce is rotting on vines and trees. So much for whitey Trump supporters going to work, harvesting. They won’t do those jobs.

  15. So people who solicit government aid are a public charge. What would someone who does not pay taxes like the big companies and our president be? A nationwide charge?

  16. Cuccinelli is a shameful excuse for a human being. He’s made out of the same racist fabric as Trump.

  17. If they paid a decent wage more people could stand on their own.

  18. Donald trump said. am going to make America look Great again 😂 trump is the most races president , his not making America look Great his making it look bad everyday .

  19. Vote Big Blue in 2020. We cant accept another 4 years! When trump is out these stupid rules will be thrown out.

    Poor like Jesus Christ, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa would be deported… Evil is as evil does…
