    you trump haters, are your really that stupid? this country washijacked and almost turned over to the u.n. and THe Smart American people and Trump saved it. its not over yet and we need everyone to be awake. don't you get it. you have been systematically robbed in everyway. your rights have been taken or regulated so much that they are really rights. you have been taxed without representation, they have stolen property, they take bribes(illegal and should be fired). Obama stole over 250 million to pay for his health tax. stole the money from fanny may and one other. just took the money from the stock holders. he also used the irs , the blm, and the fbi to go after Christian groups and individuals because they opposed him. hes a traitor and a tyrant and a piece of shit. I could go on. all of these facts are verifiable. go look them up yourself. if you don't then your part of the problem and we need solutions, not more of you

    An Obama rally today in 2018 held 750 people out of 7500 people. A Trump rally today held 12,000 people out of the 10,000 crowd seat minimum. Something's the biased media won't report or show.

    That first piece on Trump - he sounded drunk to me (or does he often sound like that?)
    Anyone else think that maybe Obama will be encouraged to stand again by popular demand, or think that he might be considering it?
    As an ex-president, he doesn't seem to have given up much of the political limelight, unlike so many others, and his audiences seem as large and enthusiastic as ever (perhaps Trump's audiences attend, in part, to 'be there' for the next gigantic faux pas).
    When our British Prime Ministers give up/fall from grace/get kicked out of power, they almost disappear, like snails tucking themselves into shells. Only Tony Blair has carried on voicing his unwanted opinions - his former popularity has almost dried up now... Thank goodness.

    Man that plaid shirt guy mirrors my expressions when I heard Trump speak for the first time. Well, atleast now I know how Trumpists must feel when Obama speaks and they cannot understand a word or make head or tail out of it.

  • Wrong Turn
    Wrong Turn 2 months ago

    Obama was a good POTUS for America and I agree that he deserved a break after the harrowing 8 years in WH. But man, all this time you remain silent with only one statement about dreamers. Now you resurface near election time? I know that progressives need to be reminded to vote in 2016 because many progressives and nearly half the millennials don't plan to vote. I am not criticizing you for appearing. I am criticizing you for not appearing sooner.
    You should have issued more statements from time to time, IMO. As should have Hillary who surfaces only to whine about how misogyny made her lose 2016 elections. I know it was hard on you two but it was hard on all of reasonable America, too - still is. And we didn't get to take a break. I know that you guys are probably not gonna run again (Obama can't, Hillary may not) but that is why you should give a coherent voice to the reasonable half of the people. That's how we know that at least someone is standing with the people on principle and not for votes alone.
    That would also give direction to the Dems who seem to be scared at times to say anything because they might lose office. So things that need to be said but people in the office don't say them for the love of their office, you should be giving voice to them. I know these expectations are a lot. But if you are a great President, there will be great expectations of you - always.
    All that aside, It was nice to hear a reasonable person speak again to confirm I am not losing my marbles. Trumpp's speeches really make me dumber with every semblance of a word.
    As for your pauses - that is just proof that you think before you speak. Current POTUS wouldn't know that because it hates thinking more than salad or exercise.

      After Franklin Roosevelt was voted in for his fourth term (he died in 1945, which was his 13th year as president), there was a new law passed that limited presidential terms to two-not just two consecutive, but two total.

Oh, and Colbert taking part in this crap shows what a sellout loser he is.

      Actually he did not win the Popular Vote. He won because of the Electoral College. And even if he had won the Popular Vote, the audience wouldn't be full of people who voted for him. You might want to get your facts straight next time you want to make an uninformed comment.

    Doesn't everyone readily see that the way Donnie talks with his moments of incoherent speech, problems forming words, mumbling, etc., is 100% IDENTICAL to how small children talk, typically age 6 or less. Seriously. Among the reasons are attention span deficit, wandering thoughts, unfamiliar with words, and a limited overall vocabulary. Functionally, emotionally, and intellectually, Donnie is somewhere between the ages of 4 and 6. Essentially, Donnie is STUPID! This is not intended as a joke. He is both illiterate and profoundly STUPID!!
