    The trolls are all over these comments.

    Happy to be in the limelight? Lmao

    • @Play Geetar
      Not a good final sentence. Very general, and not to the point. Describing a news outlet as “filth”, is just so adolescent. But at least you didn’t use the ever juvenile “fake news”.

    • @Play Geetar
      Hey everyone this fella fancies himself a hacker…..

    • @Brad Dibble I’ve been called every name in the book online. You just deal with it. It’s called being an adult. This is just another excuse to shut down anyone that doesn’t agree with the left. Don’t use private information if you’re too thin skinned. My sons are adults and have never complained about being bullied. Nobody is forcing people to use social media. It’s a choice just like driving a car and being cut off in traffic. Ffs be an adult.

  2. This is America, we have free speech, But in America their is a responsibility with the use of free speech and some take it too far . My fellow
    American’s be civil too one another.

    • @Kate good point. Although, we need to do better. Its not good enough.

    • The problem is many of the posts, especially the hostile ones are from Putin’s army of hate.

      When they stop respecting (or ignoring) the principles in the constitution that’s when I tune them out.

    • This is not America. Goons posting nonsense on YouTube are not all Americans, though many have multiple accounts and pretend to be.

      They want you to think the conflict is within the US, when they only wish they were.

    • Free speech is the right to say anything, anywhere, there are no limits nor should there be.

    • @Dan Willow Dan, as a condition of your probation you are not to go online anymore. (Why are to taunting me?)

      I’m telling your mother and we’re going to talk about this before dinner young man. Your sister won’t be able to sneak you food this time.

      After you threatened the lives of many public figures the lenient judge decided you should not be online. If they find out your doing this at school they will expel you, and the courts could do far worse.

  3. I was trolled by Stuart Carney ‘s troll RICHARD MACARI.

    • CNN’s Brian Stelter and the rest of the kooks & sickos at CNN are the biggest liars the world has ever seen for the baby killers after birth wannabes Demonic Demonrats Party that they all voted for.

  4. The amount of ad hominems on social media is astonishing! Like here on YouTube. The comment sections can become cesspits of name-calling. Often because of lack of valid arguments.

    • @David Hand They are in large part Russians paid to be a$sholes.

      You have to feel sorry for them. Trapped spewing sh*t for their tryant. I hope they are free from him soon.

    • @Downright Dutch I fear there isnt a medication to make to rational again.

      Tim Ryan Well, โ€˜fearโ€™ always comes from hell, ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘น never from God. Secondly, there isa always a medicine for leftist, aroigant lying media activists (even Stelter!): REPENT en ask Jesus in your heart. The ONLY way for healing, even mental๐Ÿ‘น depression, psychiatric ๐ŸคชTrump disorders, fear (your problem?) and e.ve.ry. disorder. Eternal healing and joy! โœ๏ธโœ๏ธโœ๏ธโœ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    • @Downright Dutch well I don’t really fear you won’t get well.

      Unlike you I was raised to be polite. ๐Ÿ˜

    this whole video could have just been a sign saying “Read the comments below…”

      @Marius Thefaker “seem a little upset”? How strange, you must be livid and felt an overwhelming need to comment. Lol. I don’t have the capacity to derive emotional context in an in person to person conversation and less so from a text. Stop complaining about comments you pansy. That is all. Have a great day!

    • Marius Thefaker | September 9, 2019 at 11:10 AM | Reply

      @Gabriel Castaneda livid? nah, just bored. i was looking forwards to a battle of wits, but it seems you come half prepared…

      @Marius Thefaker having asperger’s doesn’t broadly make one’s intelligence inferior to another’s. It also doesn’t automatically make one a genius either. If you’re looking for a battle of wits while trolling in the YouTube comments section there are 2 things you must consider:
      1) most people think that their smarter than they really are. In fact in your case I would venture to assert that is more true than the average in my opinion.
      2) Seeking a “battle of wits” in the safe confines behind your screen and while on YouTube means your not only a coward but weak minded. I chose only to battle wits in person and against someone not as feeble minded as yourself.
      Have a great day! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

      @TheBase1aransas They didn’t teach you very well at troll school. “Populous” is an adjective. The noun for which you are looking is “populace”, Igor.

  6. All I can hear is mark dice ๐ŸŽฒ when brian opens his mouth ๐Ÿ‘„ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  7. Ask FREDDO if he wants some cheese with his whine!!

  8. All hail our Harasser in Chief. He has only to tweet and his troll army will target the enemy. CNN, for some inexplicable reason.

    It is the small calm voice, spoken as a whisper… that truly matters. This can come from a journalist, or a common person who live the stories that pay the journalists salary.
    That ‘new’ emerging mind that inspires others. He or she were just 1 amongst a billion. But… when one stills, just to listen to that voice yet unheard, others will follow. It is in this… that many find a voice that they want silenced.
    ANY and EVERY voice is important. I actually saw the woman being interviewed exhibit a small sneer when compared with the need for safety of an ordinary person. When will this issue of STATUS be addressed. A tool of ego. And the people want truth.
    All should be seen as targets of trolls. I would love to hear of how to protect one’s self against a troll attack. What does everyone need to know? ( and respectfully, from someone who does not see themselves as being better than another. )

  10. The solution is quite simple really, ignore social media. Or cut it off altogether. Aside from YouTube, I barely use social media. And I feel saner because of it.
