It’s time to clean the White House!

The whole Republican party has become the racist tea partiers. The only way to bring smart, common sense politicians is to vote for liberal progressives.

It isn't just the trump environment tthat is to blame for the sub-par candidates, it's the fact that republicans chose to turn their backs on the USA and Americans and put party over Country. Why would anyone having aspirations toward a Life in Politics, want to attach themselves to a Sinking Ship"?

Another thing to keep in mind is that we don't actually need to impeach Donald Trump. All we need to do is begin the impeachment process in the House. Once that ball is rolling, the Dems can subpoena Trump's financial records, his tax returns and investigate every single shady deal that he's made during the past 30 years. When all of that information goes public, Trump is finished. He will be effectively shut down until 2020, at which time he will be voted out of office. And once he's out of office, he'll get nailed on charges of federal tax evasion, a slew of illegal business dealings and possibly Russian collusion as well. Trump's future will almost certainly be spent behind bars… and his kids will probably join him there.

Right wing is desperate, even to the point of closing voting stations in blue (African American) areas and demanding a voter ID card which would naturally discriminate non-white and low paid workers who are more likely to vote a candidate under democratic party. But the biggest factor is that Democrats historically stay away from voting booths.

Watch "Here's How Trump Talks About Women vs. How Obama Does" on YouTube

Watch "Opinion | An hour-by-hour comparison of Trump and Obama responding to school shootings" on YouTube

Donald j Trump you are a lying orange worm who getting ready to be feed to the Big Fish soon!! 😵😱😭😢😲🤡🤥

Pat Cook · September 8, 2018 at 2:53 pm

Joy Reid is now pretending she was for "Medicare for All" and the Progressive Platform all along, signaling that the Progressives have won the messaging War. Nancy P. however just screwed any future DNC President with "Pay-Go" that will force a tax increase or cut in services before any Policies can be enacted, something the Military or Elite Tax Cuts never have to abide by.

Joy Reid was Progressive all along?

neoc · September 8, 2018 at 2:59 pm

It's not a 'wave'. It's an ocean.

Marilyn Newman · September 8, 2018 at 3:27 pm

I fear Trump is going to do what all Republicans in trouble do, declare war on some small country for ridiculous reasons. And since Trump thinks Puerto Rico is not a part of the United States, I wouldn't be surprised if he declared war on them.

How does it happen, that the wealthiest man in the history of the world, Jeff Bezos, is also one of the largest welfare recipients in America? Jeff Bezos and his company, Amazon, make huge profits by paying their employees wages that are so inadequate that many of them need public assistance just to get by.

Kathryn Shaw · September 8, 2018 at 5:18 pm

As Obama has implied, the key to our future rests with the younger generation recognizing that the Republicans and Trump have mortgaged their future. Most of Trump's recent actions have been fiscally irresponsible.They threaten both a return to the recession and a accumulation of massive amounts of national debt. That will have a secondary impact on inflation, pricing and savings. Bill Clinton worked very hard with Alan Greenspan to pull us out of that economic spiral. He lost control of it when control transferred to Bush 2. The Foreign Exchange Market tracked the American dollars loss of value for at least 5 years before politicians were willing to acknowledge the "Great Recession". The future belongs to the next generation now! The young cannot allow a bunch of old frauds to put the future in a straight jacket or to fully mortgage it for their own pleasure. We need the young generation to educate yourselves. Register to vote. Vote no matter what happens in each and every election. You are the fresh new voice of America. Let us hear you!

Jackie Clark · September 8, 2018 at 5:19 pm

Help save our Democracy! Vote Blue! Traitor trump is a fake "president"! RESIST, PROTEST and REMOVE Traitor trump!

Sub par Republicans created sub par Trump. Republicans jumped headlong into criminality. It is their "lodestar". Just ask Half Pence and his mother.

Arrest Agolf Twittler for treason!

Vanessa Jackson · September 8, 2018 at 9:02 pm

yea, trump supporters get your head out of the crack of Trump's butt!

mg try awayne qaBowlby · September 8, 2018 at 9:34 pm

Trump is causing his own down fall. Trump uses Mussolini quotes in speeches and believes in Fascism. Sieg Heil!!! or its English version. Practice it learn it, Trump wants to have the words Americanized sooner than later. Write your loyalty oath, be ready for public lie detectors, because this president thinks he is God, Americas only hope according to his own words.

Dan O'Hiley · September 8, 2018 at 11:16 pm

Vote BLUE folks!

Satan In Hell · September 8, 2018 at 11:32 pm
