Watch A Republican Congressman Scold Trump: Don’t Be ‘An A**hole’ | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


As the majority of House Dems are now calling for impeachment, another Republican Congressman is now retiring. Rep. Hurd is the sixth Republican to retire in the last two weeks, and was the last black Congressman left in the GOP. Hurd strongly criticized Trump, being one of only four GOP members who voted to condemn Trump’s racist attacks on the House floor, and said his party needs to learn not to be ‘racist.’

  1. Trump says ” only the best people ” and ” so much winning” handcuffs are waiting for this clown when he leaves office. 🤡🎪

    The conservatives will never NOT be racist against people of color, I wish these POC republicans had enough insight to figure this out ahead of time.

    • Evan Degenfelder so at this point would he vote for Trump again?

    • @Evan Degenfelder – makes you wonder why he doesn’t switch to independent, doesn’t it? How bad does it have to get, before he says enough is enough, Donny diapers actually shooting someone in times square?

    • Why would they want to? They are surely being bribed.

  3. Has anyone thought of how the last 3 years of our lives could’ve been so much better had 45 not been elected in?

    • @Darrell Madden TRIGGERED 😃

    • Kevin Lee
      Like ANTIFA ohh there the new KKKDemoncrats. STFU you know NOTHING

    • Cassidy Smith
      Obama put us 9 1/2 TRILLION more in debt. In his OWN OPINION that was unpatriotic.

      @HT0wN 4 l1f3 unemployment is at a all time low stock market is at a all time high, more people are working than ever before!!
      Obummer doubled the national debt I’m sure Hillary would have done the same. Trump only spent 3 trillion & most of that was on dummykkkrates💩💩💩
      Trump’s been freeing a lot of people Clinton & Biden locked up with the 94 crime bill. & hes working with black pastors 2 clean up cities like Baltimore!!! That have been destroyed by commie politics. So I’m pretty😎
      Pull your head out your butt and vote for trump in 2020

    • The True Apache Chief Patriot | August 3, 2019 at 12:32 PM | Reply

      Righttt. You mean like when Obama was in office and nobody worked ?

  4. Mueller came to testify not impress anyone by being showy, he did great. Trump is showy a “reality tv show” pundit and he looks and acts awful to spew his hate and bigotry. If those are the people backing Trump doesn’t shine a very favorable light on them…..VOTE BLUE IN 2020, VOTE TRAITOROUS RACIST TRUMP, MOSCOW MITCH AND AS MANY REPUBLICANS AS POSSIBLE OUT IN 2020. SAVE OUR COUNTRY.

      🇺🇸😇 Yes indeed Pam!!! All thoughtful american did not need a show! What was needed were facts and Muller did a very honest and damning work. The russian troll grifter In chief infiltrated in the White House and his unpatriotic greedy republicrooc enablers were, are and will end up paying for all the traitorous disservices they did this country in buying into the Putin and the KGB plan to avenge the USSR Perestroika and lead The USA towards Amerstroika🇺🇸😁😀🙊America wake up before it is too late and save your democratic institutions from these evil empire!!! 🇺🇸😁😁😀😀👋👋👋👍🙏🙌

    • Sunrise Sunset | August 3, 2019 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      @jacques mbikila Exactly!!! Well said!!! 😃😊😃

    • @jacques mbikila the problem with that is that trump knows most Americans dont care about substance. They dont care about policy. They dont care about how the country is actually being run.

      They like that someone is telling them – in simple sentences, with simple words – thhat everything is just great, and all their problems are someone else’s fault.

      He knows that if you give them a reason to feel good about themselves and give them a focal point for their anger, they will believe whatever nonsense he spews.

      And apparently, it works.

    • Trump’s desire for ratings and to dominate media has worked for his base. But the side effect has been national angst and frayed nerves. Divide and conquer is no way to run a country. Let’s hope dems and indies get off their bums and vote before too much institutional and irreversible damage is done.

      @Rob C 👍Yes Rob! I quite frankly agree with and let’s not be fooled by this Putin’s mission impossible man infiltrated in the White House and his Senate of republicrooc enablers with no policy but greedy and selfish democratic institutions haters at a point to destroy the whole country and what we are.🇺🇸😇 Sad enough for all their die-hard brain dead fanatics!!!😎 No matter how hard their spiritual crooked leaders try * We the people will prevail if we only don’t give in all this distraction while Russia with Putin and the KGB plan is being implemented to steal the elections one more time to cause Amerstroika!!! Watch out the voting machines are almost hacked as we are here trying to warn us all!!! May God save America.🇺🇸😇😎👍👋👋👋🙏🙌

    Congressional GOPs “retiring”= “I’m getting outta here while I maybe still have enough credibility left to maybe salvage some sort of a career for myself.”

    Trump is excrement. The USA will never be rid of his stench.

    • OneEyedJack1970 | August 3, 2019 at 8:32 AM | Reply

      @Da Choppah He would say He hates child-sacrifice. The Bible is very clear on this matter.

    • @OneEyedJack1970 Explain to me what the Passover means. The way I understand it is that God sent his avenging angel to murder and slice up innocent babies with his heavenly sword. God approves of post-partum abortions while the mothers scream in horror.

  7. Da_Most_Shady | August 2, 2019 at 10:18 PM | Reply

    They need to impeach even if it’s a losing battle just so Americans can see who the traitors are in the Senate.

    • @Da_Most_Shady she wants to be sure he is in jail!! If he gets impeached, he can still get reelected. If he is in jail, he cannot. Safer in jail if you ask me.

    • Da_Most_Shady | August 3, 2019 at 11:04 AM | Reply

      @Bev True Both can happen!!!

    • And because it’s the right thing to do. Sometime we have to stand up for what is right.

    • Da_Most_Shady ; Shady; America already knows who the traitors are, the freakin repulsive republicans. They have nothing to say onlybecause of their spineless cowardice

    I’m drinking a “Moscow Mitch’ Russian vodka – Kentucky sour – Orange zest – with a couple blocks of I.C.E Be careful tho, Don’t drink to many, You may loose your Rubles and end up in a cage at the border. Nostrovia!!

    • Chris P Bacon : I speak as a Conservative. And I say IMPEACH TRUMP! Remember. We don’t need to win the vote. We ONLY need the Tax Returns, the Emoluments Proof, The Trump Foundation Records, and the witness testimony, when they FINALLY, CANNOT LIE or withhold the TRUTH. That will END Trump’s, “election,” hopes. ENOUGH of the, “strategy,” Nancy! ✌️

    • I thought he was being sarcastic, am I wrong?

    • I bet Putin keeps Moscow Mitch supplied with cases of the good stuff.

  9. “Don’t be an A-hole…” too late

    • L Benson : Did you see that Trump Tramp, “hero,” beating on a defenceless old man? That’s the party of Trump. That’s who they are. The Republic and the Constitution needs Trump’s urine wiped from it

    • Herman Klump | August 3, 2019 at 8:08 AM | Reply

      L Benson 3 years too late.

      Trump was born as A-hole. Just like his daddy and his granddaddy.

    When will Carson get a spine and leave. He has been worthless in that office. Trump has only been using him so he can say look im not racist i have a black guy with zero experience running a office he knows zero about. Be brave and leave or be a spineless creature and stay

      Walter Ontiveros Carson is Trump’s, ‘patsy’ ⛄………..or maybe……Trumps, ‘GIMP’↔🔴!

    • Matthew Anderson | August 3, 2019 at 10:08 AM | Reply

      Walter Ontiveros Spine would imply that Carson disagrees with Trump’s racism. I don’t think he does.

    The closer we get to next year’s election, the more Republicans will split away from Trump. It’s inevitable.. and it has already begun.

    • Billie Singe | August 3, 2019 at 6:16 AM | Reply

      They know they won’t win the election if they don’t distant themselves from this moral delinquent president.

    • Sara Pulford | August 3, 2019 at 6:30 AM | Reply

      @Billie Singe: If they resign from re-election they are not going to win anyway.

    • Sara Pulford | August 3, 2019 at 6:33 AM | Reply

      🇬🇧 Probably won’t engulf Traitor Trump because I don’t think he will be available for re-election.

    • Michele Engel | August 3, 2019 at 8:42 AM | Reply

      Too late. The Repugs have done their damage, and I, for one, will never forget it. Remember: it’s not just about their support for the Trump administration; it’s also about their behavior during the Obama administration.

    • I sure hope you are right.

  13. I don’t get whyainstream anchors refuse, or maybe don’t even get, that a govt that is afraid of its leader is a dictatorship.

    • Media commentators (as opposed to real reporters) are in the entertainment business. They do some good, but that’s a secondary byproduct.

    Se need to get rid of the Electoral Collegue. Then you can say, WE HAVE A DEMOCRATRIC country

    • Yes, it needs to be weakened.
      Not till after Moscow Mitch is gone.
      The EC is literally our only hope while he blocks all the voting protection bills.

      The United States of America was not, is not, and never will be a “Majority Rules Democracy” without shredding the United States Constitution. The word does not exist in the Declaration of Independence, OR the United States Constitution. The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic. The ONLY way to officially remove the Electoral College is by Amending the Constitution. The 4 or 5 highest densly populated major cities would OWN the White House.

    • @Richie Tattersall the person whose comment we are discussing has no content on twitter. Thinking it may be a bot or troll.

      @lynn owen What does that have to do with anything, I’ll be 62 in October, I have nothing on it.

    • @Richie Tattersall whatever.

  15. As far as “how” Meuller testified:
    it’s not about the messenger; but rather the message.

      What’s funny when the Republican party is dead it will be Obama and Hilary killed it not their corrupt back door deals FFS wake up Rep. Lets get real lets get round table

    • GOD demoncrats are so STUPID. Your party is RESPONSIBLE for every single solitary RACIST law Passed in this COUNTRY. Without Exception. The KKK, Jim Crow, Anti- Miscegenation etc…

    • @Pete Rosa
      Good luck trying to reach out to swing voters (who Trump needs next year) with a message like that.

    • @Pete Rosa
      Could you back up your claim about Democrats racist legislation please?

    • They will be a party with over 95% of their elected members are white males, that reality is going to sink into the heads of new generation voters at some point.

  19. So freaking sick of these guys only finding their balls on the way out the door. 😡

    • Suzette Figgs | August 3, 2019 at 7:59 AM | Reply


    • That is probably WHY he is “out the door”, because he decided to fight back. Sad state of affairs.

    • @Charisma Hornum-Fries if they talk back, they get kicked out. Probably they try to hang in there, hoping to be able to do some good, yet when they speak up? They get pushed out. Scary situation. Dictator in the making.

      @Bev True pitiful white men…can’t take the same heat as the democratic women ! They even get DEATH threats…STILL speak out truth to power!

  20. Only time GOP finds courage is when they are on their political career deathbed.
