  1. Don't wish to believe Trump deliberately chose August 8 to return the flag to full-staff, knowing the significance of '88' to white nationalists and their ilk. However, that is the logical inference to be drawn from Trump's acts and behavior.

  2. Is the prime focus of this new FBI task force focusing on white nationalist / supremacist / neo-Nazi terrorist hate groups going to be their current prime enabler, instigator and de facto leader, President Trump? Otherwise, won't that task force just be fighting a losing battle?

  3. He laughs off being called a f*cking moron, a narcissist, serial bankruptee, president bonespurs, orange turd, sexual deviant, child abuse and child killer, yet goes over the top at being called a racist – which he's been all his life.

  4. President Trump: "We have racist Republican traitors INVADING America, SLAUGHTERING and KILLING Americans! If we had a proper AG and Senate, we wouldn't have to work so much harder impeaching the head of their KLAN, and it would be a lot safer and a lot better! These are rough, rough people in many cases, and if they're allowed to permeate our society, only larger and bigger, we will have EMBOLDENED these people, and they will DESTROY America!"

  5. Toddler Trump turns public grief in the immediate aftermath of these tragic atrocities into personal grievances and political campaigning, heartlessly heedless of the victims and their loved ones, ramping up divisiveness — rather than admitting his own significant culpability, thereby engendering and promoting healing and unity, as any true leader would. Unfortunately, Biggest Loser has never been a true leader, as is once again demonstrated for the world to see.

  6. NRA distributed tinder and kindling nationwide, the GOP saturated them with gasoline, and President Nero turned up his flamethrower.

  7. Why is this incredibly, seriously vile racist still have followers? Oh yeah right lots of the country is getting to now come out of the shadows and proclaim themselves proud white supremacy idiots. I am sad

  8. If it walks like a duck, and if it quacks like a duck……It is a racist tRUMP!!! I hope EVERYONE keeps calling this moron out on his racist crap.

  9. Prayers don't stop them bullets from killing people, Sen. Tim Scott! Why are you silent in face of Trump, if you believe people shouldn't be silent? Why are you being all political about these terrorist attacks, if you don't think issue should be politicized? Why are you like the volunteer for the train to Auschwitz, silly fool?

  10. Most criminal, incompetent, divisive, corrupt, unpatriotic Presidential administration in U.S. history. No joke! The big joke is Republicans pretending nothing wrong.

  11. It's become patently obvious always jingoistic Republicans just phony pretend patriots! The GOP has now taken it the absurd level of becoming a CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE NATION!

  12. OK. Let’s compromise. trump is an obese, scalp reduced, anchor baby father, serial adulterer, money launderer, tax cheat, homonger racist.

  13. Barr "un-recuses" himself to take over Epstein case, mysteriously visiting Epstein in prison, shortly after which Epstein dies in Barr's DOJ custody. Pure coincidence seems out of the question; given the reputation Barr's made for himself, we're instead left to ponder just what kind of hit job Assassination Goon B.S. Barr did on Epstein.

  14. ''But….I'm not intolerant'', says the President who chose as his vice-President a religious bigot who believes in conversion therapy for homosexuals, and whose entire campaign to be elected consisted of bragging about building a giant Wall to prevent Mexicans from ''flooding'' the country.

  15. The way she said "the R word" displays how deeply racist this country still is. It's not a slur, it's a disgusting word but it shouldn't be avoided when it applies. Only took mass killings using his own words for the so-called liberal media to call it for what it is.

  16. C' mon [eople, push it, Tweet tRump is a racist; FB racist tRump, share this video to @realDonaldTrump, now. It is the perfect protest

  17. I can't wait till I see him in court after he's thrown out of office by voters. You think he's running his mouth now .. just wait.

  18. Where is the Republican pride? If they had tackled this much earlier they could have won 2020 with a new candidate. Even now they're too neutered to act, and it's costing them.

  19. The irony is the Rep. Party DEMANDED he swear not to run independently, to be synonymous with the GOP. Boy, did they get their wish…

  20. The liberals are with Satan.U all are so caught up in making this country socialist everything is racist.I never thought I'd live in a country where right is wrong and wrong is right

  21. @14:45: Does Tucker understand he just defined what happened to the everyone here in the Americas when the Europeans came over?

  22. I called donnie a racist some 20 years ago now. Sad to see I was stunningly correct. The fact lazy donal is completely worthless.

  23. This hate starts and taught at home look at trump daddy it was taught by his parents.And his supporters are showing tbeir true colors.Do anyone have a racist living next door to u,just watch trump ralleys u will see your next door neighbor a racist and promote hate.

  24. I came to live in America in 1993, when I was 19, after growing up in the UK with my English Mother
    and American Father. So I've been here 26 years and I have never heard a single racist comment.
    (Except the racism, sexism and general unpleasantness I hear in rap lyrics).

    Actually, now I come to think about it, I hear casual racism several times every day.
    Einstein famously wrote that 'racism is a disease of white people in America'.

  25. I don't think he's a racist. Alexandria the C and the squat started that. I'll bet you "reporters" were school bullies.

  26. Agree, the media has n still not counteracting his every lie with facts. Stand up for citizens n stop with shock ratings so much!

  27. Trump's attitude to African – Americans is similar to Hitler's attitude to Jesse Owens in the Berlin Olympics of 1936.

  28. That is an excellent idea: play the fear game with the Republicans. Ads that say: you are not safe because of Trump, his white nationalists will shoot you in the grocery store.

  29. With this irresponsible, incompetent President and his mendacious minions, the buck doesn't stop–it keeps getting passed on!

  30. Trump has been visiting his racist violence since he started state terrorism 'crack downs' by ICE raids and his Trump branded concentration camps.

  31. Graham Cracker tramples Senate rules, makes it official: Cruelty and human-rights abuses not a bug of Republican immigration policies…they are the racist creature feature!

  32. Scaramucci is a goddamned opportunist. He’s a more mild mannered Malignant narcissist soaking in the glory of being a contributor on countless news outlets and even appearances with Bill Maher. He still considers himself a very good friend of our lord little hands.

  33. Yeah, for the Democrats calling out the Trumpster for what he is. Add to RACISM, Trumpster mix of LUNACY & CRIMINALITY & 3RD GRADE MENTALITY AND CALL THE TRUMPSTER OUT AT EVERY TURN! Politicians have treated the Trumpster like he is a viable political alternative; he isn't! Trumpster is a political aberration in the same way that Hitler was and for the same reasons!

  34. Wow… the left in America is BAT SH*T CRAZY…. 🤣😂🤣😂

    No examples of these accusations of racism/sexism/xenophobia etc etc… just a sycophantic echo chamber .
    You sad… pathetic mental midgets

  35. {Burr/Trumpster] …was clearly a deviant type; whether he represented anything or anyone beyond himself is at best debatable." THE AGE OF FEDERALISM by Elkins & McKitrick, (page 743/744).

  36. So the Republicans are now debating whether or not to replace Trump. WoW. Mindblown. 3 years late doing that, but I guess better late than never.

  37. Indeed the media haven't called out his lies enough. Especially not to his face. He's given ample opportunity to tell his lies and reporters don't have each other's back. If he lies to one, the next should call him out for it. And the next. And the next.

    Deny him his moment on TV. Make him less prominent, he is NOT breaking news.

  38. your very words on this edition are "divisive"; you have done it for a long time and you don't want to own it; but it does not matter; what it matters is your ratings plummeted; and the word that drive you nuts is "unity", even Washington post editor was scolded just for putting a headline with that word. only the naive can't see the deceptive ways of MSNBC; remember Muller report, in which you made a living for two years every night. But the best of the new words: "Fredo" you happen to be the twin brother.

  39. If it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, smells like a duck, walks like a duck, spends its time with ducks, then it is not likely to be a cow. If you can't wear the label the don't be the brand.

  40. So it's an invasion when the Mexicans come over here but it wasn't an invasion when the white race came to America and killed millions of Indians.

  41. why is anyone listening to moochie still? I just don't get it. So many other sources, why him? (cheaper? lol )

  42. I know how Trump can shed the racist label…..SEW HIS MOUTH SHUT. I'm soooooo ready for this guy to disappear. I can't wait for a REAL leader with scruples, COMPASSION AND EMPATHY and morals to fill the seat of the presidency once again—A MATURE ADULT. This guy would be a complete nobody if it weren't for daddy's money in the very beginning. He's still a nobody and he knows it. That's why he is so determined to demand approval from all and throws tantrums when he doesn't get any respect. Manchild. Pathetic.

  43. The GOP and every American Republican that voted for and still support this patent bigot with patently bigoted policies will have ''Shame and Disgrace Will (that will) Linger''

  44. Racism is evil. It comes from the minds of uneducated hateful people. The 2020 election is crucial, and will determine what kind of country we are going to live in. Is it important enough for you to stand up and say NO TO RACISM…to vote even if it is inconvenient? I think it most definitely is. Everyone…register to vote, make sure you ARE actually registered, help a friend register, and most important…show up on election day and VOTE! The 'blue wave' we saw at the midterms must be made to look like a small ripple in a pond. Trump MUST lose by a landslide…if he doesn't, I can see him claiming voter fraud, and trying to invalidate the election. We can't allow Trump another four years to destroy the principles this country was founded on.
