    Hey americans! Please listen to me. I have a tip for you since you're less experienced in witch hunting then we people from good old europe. You don't do it by investigating and talking on TV. You gather a good number of people and enough wood to make a stake. Than you grab the bitch, put him on there and lit it. That's the way it is done.

    9:01- More accurately, the quote for Donald Trump would be, “FAKE NEWS! FAKE NEWS! MUELLER IS THE CRIMINAL!, THE DEMOCRATS DID IT! MUELLER IS THE CORRUPT ONE!”
    ...something along those lines. I mean, he spouts that constantly on his nightly Twitter tantrums.

    I think Donald Trump's purpose as a president is to appeal to young people because before I honestly did my best to avoid politics but now since hes been president every comedians material consists of them making fun of trump which has made me pay attention to politics as weird as it may sound I actually think ive learned more about politics since hes been president than when learning US History in high school.

Ad; The Daily Show LIVE: A Conversation With Trevor Noah 57 min 16 sec; CNN Sarah Sanders: Trump is 'certainly not' above the law 28 min 50 sec; and then, Finally, after all That!- The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Donald Jr's Testimony Summarized 'I Do not Recall' [which was published May 18, 2018] Now here's where the highly praised "Google Search Engine" Totally fails, or else "Google is guilty of manipulating and limiting viewers access to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. It is 7-post and more than six hours of programs before the next "Late Show With Stephen Colbert" episode shows up in a TVclip search specifically for that program.

    The biggest problem with this monologue Stephen is that everybody who pays attention already knows that the VIPs (retired Veteran Intelligence Professionals) as documented in July 2017 at, in their thoroughly vetted Forensic Analysis of the leaks (not hacks), already DEBUNKED Russian involvement. Are we just supposed to somehow UNREAD or FORGET their brilliant analysis so as to somehow see this monologue as "funny"? 'Cause, right now, you just sound pathetic, completely out of touch (or willfully ignorant) and/or thoroughly IN BED with the deep state. Which is it? So sad!

    I've posted this on other similar videos, not because I am spamming, but because I want to reach a larger pool of people and I think my point/question is valid and I'm sincerely wanting as large a variety of responses as possible. In response to people who troll Yahoo! articles and late night comedian videos... Really, it's a phenomenon that is quite one-sided in terms of sheer quantity. I posed the following question, prefaced as such: I do not subscribe fully to a conservative or liberal doctrine, but rather find myself somewhere in the middle, leaning from one end of the spectrum to the other based on the issue at hand. That stated: Is sewing discord and creating/perpetuating social/political discord and resentment a necessary element of (at least 50%) of America's daily diet? "Trolls" in other words. (And now for an excruciating run-on sentence...) Elaborating... do you think that Yahoo!, Colbert, Seth Meyers, SNL, John Oliver, Samantha Bee and their ilk would generate the ad revenue they do, and thus sustains/justifies their very existence - at the very least meeting minimum financial burdens to potentially (on the opposite end of the spectrum) actually exceed market expectations and becoming lucrative in the process, largely as a result of said "trolls"? Especially apparent on message boards where the claim is a "liberal/left-leaning bias", or "anti-Trump" agendas, sites like Yahoo! and the commentators on videos such as the one we're on now; I consistently see half the audience and responses from those who claim to hate Yahoo!, it's staff, journalists, editors, or the late night comedians. People who it appears visit this sites/videos solely for the intent of vehemently disagreeing, here only to bash and hate. Back to my question... would the "left" leaning, "liberal biased" media find their myriad of means for distributing their rhetoric and thus limit their audience, if you people simply stopped coming here/there/any and everywhere that apparently embodies everything that you hate about America? Are you not feeding the beast, not only bread and water, but filet mignon paired with a fine merlot? Sure, you may not starve the liberal agenda, but you'd certainly limit their palette and thus potentially cripple their menu. To finish the analogy, if you stripped away the ad revenue from your clicks/views and engagement, you would limit the amount of dishes (content) and close down some of the locations (having only 1 McDonalds in your town instead of 3). And this alllll goes back to what my initial query was. Is it a necessary evil for you people to have something you hate? Are you politically masochistic and so needy that you can't help but become part of your very own problem? Do you NEED to have something to hate in order to be fulfilled? Just curious!

      Small government doesn't help people, and the only viable small government option gets real big when it comes to social freedoms. I'm happy to pay higher taxes if it means more people have a chance of a good life. Even from a selfish standpoint, I could use universal health care, better infrastructure and more. I hope you'll vote for anyone but Trump. Like literally anyone else.

    • Bruce Shepherd

      JamesHLanier - I'm sure your a good tax paying citizen just as I, but I'm always voting for the smallest government offered. We'll agree to disagree, see you at the voting booth in 2020. I wish you the best my friend.

    • JamesHLanier

      Nope, he got us out of a recession, increased jobs, decrease unemployment and so on. The guy was far from perfect, but overall he did a damn good job. Like I said before, you can't put the debt entirely on Obama. Congress are the ones who create and pass spending bills, and most of Obama's terms had a Republican controlled congress. He also had to deal with poor economic policies in place that he inherited from Bush, who you admit was awful. In addition, cutting spending during a recession is a recipe for disaster. I know it's convenient to blame Obama for all our problems, but that's not really how this works.

    • Bruce Shepherd
      Bruce Shepherd 2 months ago

      JamesHLanier - wake up Alice your in wonderland, we had 8years of Barack Obama's economy and it almost ruined the nation ! 10 trillion dollars to the national debt is more than all the presidents combined before him ! Your children and grandchildren will be paying back the debt for the rest of their lives that Obama added by his self !

    • JamesHLanier

      Yeah, definitely. I never liked Hillary, but anything is better than what we have now. To answer your last question, yes. I don't think Dems like Hillary will do much to help, but those who lean further left will be more likely to actually balance the budget. Both sides have sold out to corporate interests though, so it's hard to say for sure.
