  1. Trump is the perfect Example of NPD and not too mention his low IQ and inability to act honestly, this imposter has to go…..!

  2. Just imagine being a career military person with the highest rank, or a foreign relations expert with decades of experience….and having to explain things to the Stable Genius using only pictures because he's too dumb to otherwise get it. 🤔😆😅

  3. THE REASON WHY SO CALLED JOURNOS ARE HAVING THEIR LIVES RUINED: because they lied or fabricated stories to make the president look bad and GOT CAUGHT.

  4. After ALL that said and evidence presented, the Tramp in the w/h will still get 40+% of the vote in November. What does it say about your fellow citizens of the US?!

  5. I am shocked at how many representatives and senators have accepted Nazi ideals by following their Fuhrer Trump. And how many Americans are following what the 1930 Germans did by being mesmerized by Hitler. I do know that "FEAR" played an extreme part in pressuring Nazi acceptance.

  6. As bad a president as most of us believe him to be once he is out of office we will find out it was 100 times worse then we could have guessed

  7. “Trump struck me as adolescent, hilariously ostentatious, arbitrary, unkind, profane, dishonest, loudly opinionated, and consistently wrong,” Bowden wrote last year in Vanity Fair, recalling his time profiling Trump. “He remains the most vain man I have ever met. And he was trying to make a good impression.”
    — Mark Bowden, author of Blackhawk Down

    "Lying is second nature to him. More than anyone else I have ever met, Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or sort of true, or at least ought to be true..
    He said that Trump had no ideology or beliefs, except that he should prevail in the end.

    "Trump’s temperament and his habits have hardened with age." Schwartz said. "He was always cartoonish, but compared with the man for whom I wrote The Art of the Deal 30 years ago, he is significantly angrier today: more reactive, deceitful, distracted, vindictive, impulsive and, above all, self-absorbed."
    "Every American ought to be concerned about his character." Schwartz said.

    –Tony Schwartz, the ghost writer for Trump's book "The Art of the Deal":

  8. Make no mistake, Trump isn't just a national security threat, he poses the biggest national security threat to the country today. And no one knows this more than the people closest to him.

    “I think he’s a kook, I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office."
    –Lindsey Graham on Trump,  Feb, 2016

    "Here’s what you’re buying: He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. And you know how you make America great again, by telling Donald Trump to go to he//."
    –Lindsey Graham on Trump, Dec 8, 2015

  9. The red hats should display MDTG (Make Donald Trump Great).
    On the other hand, if he really wanted to create a better image, he would have kept his mouth shut about 16,241 public lies ago.

  10. I wonder how much more the book can expand on General Mattis' remark about Trump having "limited cognitive ability" and Rex Tillerson's comment that, "Trump is an effing moron".

  11. Just as I and my daughter suspected. Smh there are bad people out there. Really bad People that are selfish and hateful.

  12. what you folks still don't get Is that the WH Mobster already established the Dictatorship. No Law is valid anymore as the Senate neglects any reason to follow Law. As a mentally deranged psychopath "the Family" used this character to push forward their 200+ old program to transform the world into a Dictatorship. The Moron is guided by Putin. There will be no consequences for the Mobster because of the Dictatorship. Wake up to reality. Either take the streets or accept. To you the choice

  13. Phil Rucker is a bloody legend👍

    he’ll go down in political journalism as one of the hardest working, honest and unbiased reporters of all time👍

  14. IT WAS NOT CONGRESS THAT IMPEACHED THE PRESIDENT IT WAS THE PRESIDENT WITH ARTICLE TWO THAT GOT HIM IMPEACHED SOME PEOPLE CAN'T HANDLE POWER LIKE A DONALD TRUMP ? IS A EXAMPLE OF TO MUCH POWER IN THE WRONG HANDS

  15. THE FOUR FAUX REPUBLICAN TROUBLE MARKERS

    The WHY:

    1.) Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the easiest to understand. Mitt Romney made a warm, congratulatory call to Donald Trump after winning the Presidency. The President then made Mitt Romney grovel for the Secretary of State job and passed him over for the position. Remember that Mitt Romney lost the previous election to President Obama. Mitt Romney actually hates President Trump and is extremely disgruntled because he believes he should be President. Mitt Romney has a grave decision to make. Does he want to continue to enjoy his parties support in the future. It's really as simple as that. I hope he will remember that there are many many ways that politicians end up leaving office.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee is a little more complex but to boil the cabbage down, I'll just say this. Lamar Alexander started his political career and his legacy up to this point in time is that of a bipartisan voter of the truth. He was able to help convict Ray Blanton for corruption and he's now calculating how best to end his legacy. His choice is to side with a corrupt process to try and remove President Trump in the Senate trial or side with his party and possible be remembered by some of his bipartisan buddies for his partisan support of his party for President Trump. Lamar Alexander should seriously consider this. John McCain could have been remembered by the entire country with favor, but his choice to defy his party only to gain perceived revenge on President Trump has left his legacy by 50% of the nation he served his entire life remembering him as a traitor to his principles, his party and his country. If Lamar Alexander has interest in being remembered favorably by the right side of history he'll do the RIGHT thing.

    Sen. Susan Collins of Maine is a self proclaimed Liberal politician. She models herself a Moderate Republican to her constituents. In her best year of service Collins sided with the Democrat Party position 75.9% of the time. Susan Collins skates on very thin ice in Republican Maine. She counts on the Republican Party support and financial backing possibly more than any other Senator. Her friendships in Congress are strongly Democrat relationships. She loves being a Senator with all the perks and power that comes with it. So again she leans on her left elbow while buttering her bread from the right. She knows or should know that the Republican party and all it's supporters have long memories and she is up for reelection in 2020.

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska just like Susan Collins from Maine, she is frequently described as one of the most Moderate Republicans in the Senate and is many times a swing voter. She has a composite voting score of 56% conservative and 45% liberal. She voted with President Obama's position on votes 72.3% of the time. But to be fair to her, she has voted with President Trump's position approximately 75% of the time. However she is known to be the second most liberal Republican Senator behind Susan Collins. She is Pro-Choice and opposes defunding Planned Parenthood, but has voted to ban late-term abortions.
    She was one of two Republicans who voted against an amendment to prohibit federal funding from being given to facilities that promote abortion services or family planning. Guess who the other Republican Senator was? Surprisingly she voted in favor of a federal constitutional amendment to define marriage to be between one man and one woman. Oh and she has an A rating from the National Rifle Association. Lisa Murkowski is an enigma, there's really no telling how she's going to vote. Best description of her is Luke Warm.

  16. Trump's not that crazy and he's a real useful tool to transform the US into a modern fascist 1 party state. In order to effectively destroy or irreparably damage the republic, the constitution and the law of the land, Trump had to abuse his power in public in front of the whole country and he has to get away with it in the absolute certainty that everyone knows he did it but no one can do anything against it. This is the first step towards to transform the US into the Rhodesian model. This is the only and last chance the GOP has to stay in power. Forever.

  17. I have known what our President is long before he became President. It was just vivid how much he lusted after tearing into anyone. Often, he would be much worse off. But that didn't matter to him. He "won" by dragging the person down to the cesspool.

  18. Can a copy of this book can be left on every Republican senator's desk so they can read it while ignoring the plethora of damning evidence about their fearful, incompetent leader?

  19. Well now. Individual 1a is stupid trash person. What makes him powerful is that he serve a totally corrupt party and doing there secret desires. A party full of people with no shame, a party that only want to have power to enrich themselves and have no misgiving if it is in a criminal way. Individual 1 is in the perfect spot for himself and for that party. And the ordinary people that vote on him/goes to his rallies are starstrucked. (When you see a celebrity in person and you get really excited. You get an adrenaline rush!!)

  20. And, it just won’t get any better. The GOP will have to keep half of its own members out of jail by rigging the, “Impeachment,” and the 2020, “Elections.” The most guilty seem to be the ones on Trump’s Impeachment Defence Team? Former Epstein customers and other Trump Conspirators. It has come down to a stark choice: the END of the Democratic Process, and a Dictatorship that will consolidate its power, until we’re all too SCARED to mention that the Republic is clearly OVER, or the restoration of the Republic, which will land the Trump family in jail, and, “ratting out,” all of the GOP members for EVERY DIRTY TRICK THEY EVER PULLED FOR TRUMP. Which do YOU think they’ll choose? . . . RIP America’s Republic: 2019 . . . Smh

  21. Donald Trump… Maybe the greatest president we've ever had. Of course those who seek to harm the country want to remove him. Of course…

  22. Yeah, everyone can keep writing books but for f*cksake, how is his exit being so monumentally mishandled.

    And, once he’s back in the civilian world, he’ll be even worse…and will boast that “He had the most books written about however many presidents combined”

    Less talk, more do.

  23. Meanwhile his public image is in tatter. More than ever now, the whole world can see him for what he is. If self image is what concerns him, he should never run for president in the first place. Now he's naked for all to see.

  24. lol welcome to every politician , BIG EGOs and Self Image, and why is he any different from the rest, i know you dont want Social taking over main stream media, Bummer look for another job ,

  25. PEOPLE WHO STAND UP TO TRUMP, ARE GOING TO GO THROUGH SOME THINGS. BUT THEY WILL BE REMEMBERED AS HEROES IN HISTORY WHO STOOD UP FOR THE UNITED STATES AND OUR DEMOCRACY

  26. Someone once told me " If you always focus on the negatives , you will always get negative results.. Try focusing more on the positives and you will be very surprised!" I can't tell you how that has helped me in my relationships and my everyday life! President Trump and his administration are doing a very good job and I am proud to be an American! trump2020 🐱‍🏍

  27. Its a scary time. If the gop were more morally guided then this guy would have been forced out and Pence would have been in charge.
    Pence is a worry but he is a safer option.

  28. The USA is now a FULL blown dictatorship. The GOP has successfully executed a de-facto Coup D'Etat, all with the blessing of Republican voters. Enjoy!

  29. liers history remembers Napoleon was notorious for deceiving. the great big lie will spark the fire keg. history repeats and it rymes

  30. Answer to the epic ? of as to WHY Trump is the daily progressively out of control freak that Trump is : IS b/c Trump is a drug addict spinning out in Trumps "end stage addiction progress" !! Addicts cannot fool other addicts !!

  31. When it comes to Trump & loyalty, what I've taken away from his time in office so far is that if you're in any way disloyal to him personally – even though you may put your heart and soul into serving the country – you're screwed. If you're completely loyal to him – whatever you do for or too the USA – you're only delaying the inevitable. When it comes to loyalty, the only person the marmalade Mussolini trusts is himself, like any good (!) dictator.

  32. Agree W Joyce – and speaking of Trump finally out of the W House – Trump getting back out into "general population" should be a given, that someone (if not 100's of common US citizens) will attempt to blow Trumps head off !! Trump should have an army of body guards once his coward despicable self leaves the NOW W House cesspool of corrupt politicians !!

  33. The Madness of President 'Don the Con' Trump a.k.a. Private Bonespurs. The Very Stable Genius, with Grandiose Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Emperor of the Divided States of America. The biggest, most beautiful man-child in the Universe. A legend in his own mind. Whose oranges come from the Great Orange Ape Wall of Covfefe, declares that from this day forth, America will be named the Democratic People's Republic of Trumpazeeland. Amen!

  34. Dumpy doo doo is garbage is a liar a womanizer a bully a corporate pig a mentally ill person and harmful to the country !a traitor !! Remove this cancer !

  35. This toxic newswoman is filled with such negativity and hate around the clock, Its hard to believe a God who is supposedly love, would have created her. But then God did say, He created evil.
