    This is about as bad as when she unveiled Trump's taxes... so now, she will just make something else up and the desperate snowflakes will buy that too.

    If liberals had a spine, they would melt at a much slower rate. Watching liberals and the liberal media
    continue to self implode is highly entertaining.
    Maddow will be spending SEVEN more Christmas holidays with the Trump''s in the White House.
    That is a great present to all of us who have spines and common sense.

    This professor is unstoppable lol. Trump stole the election with 80,000 votes based on 3 states with questionable election practices.
    Fact: In Detroit alone over 70,000 people, mostly minorities were forced to use provisional ballots that NEVER got counted. How do you reckon those minorities voted? For Trump? Guess again. Voter suppression and other techniques like gerrymandering, slow or fewer voting machines in poor areas all added to Trump's squeak by win which in actually WASN'T a win at all. It was a coup d'etat.

    Fake News makes me disgusted. Why are they ignoring the facts? Why are they hiding the facts from the people? Mueller is under criminal investigation. Why does the MSM, the FBI and the CIA intent on protecting the Pizzagate Pedophiles and all their cohorts... Hiliary, Weiner, Abedin, Podesta? Is the MSN involved in that disgusting ring of people that abuse babies and children? Why no mention of Weiner's laptop videos and pictures incriminating Gary and Abedin? Why doesn't MSM identify MCain's and Hiliary's ankle bracelets? What about the money trail and Russian trail? Freaking MSM makes me have to work harder at finding REAL INFORMATION.

  • Are we not entertained?

    Don't seek equity in dealings of the Republicans and Democrats. Politics is about power, influence and downright manipulation. The ends justify the means. The sooner Democrats get over their ethical sensitivities and play for the win, the better. This does not preclude the desirability of having good and worthy ends...

He isn't much to these filthy rich people and it wouldn't be much of an issue to see him gone. Cooperating provides protection that he couldn't afford on his own...

  • Lady Deadpool 💋

    I'm telling y'all back when Trump got elected he and his family had no idea how to run the country. That they thought what they seen on TV and in the movies was how it was done and that The Leader of the Free World could do no wrong and everyone would love him and they could do anything they wanted and not worry about the consequences.

    Trump's lawyers have clearly moves from point 1 to point 2. Sure, he obstructed justice, but it's okay that he did because he's president.

    • nevyen

      Sadly, even though the Russian meddling in the election is a proven thing, there is no provision in the rules of the election to even call their win an "illegal premise".
      And Ford didn't go down when Nixon did,
      In this case though, Pence allegedly has his own stack of lies for which to be fired.

      You are wrong, he IS elected. The ballot reads "Trump/Pence, Clinton/Kaine, Johnson/Weld...etc. 'You' are voting for the pair when the box is 'checked'.
      The problem with Pence, if reports turn out to be accurate, is that he's been shown to be lying several time throughout this whole escapade.
