  1. Milkesse Jones: πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’™it πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘, it’s not any train , it’s ACELA . We love your comment .

  2. Walsh have a nerve to talk about anyone…all these sleez should be ran out of town on a rail…the party is dead and no clawing back good riddance including you Michael Steele!

  3. A challenger. This is a joke where will he get the money? Where will they get the Support and the RNC will never back a challenger. The TDS runs deep at MSNBC

  4. We need to drive trump more crazy , he has a thin skin , we can fix him without guns or knife , by driving him banana ( no offense to bananas & banana lovers ) .

  5. As soon as Nikki Haley throws herself into the republican mix, the GOP will drop Trump. First woman President and bipartisan agenda. Come on Ambassador Haley…..would be good for the world, the US and would also wake the Democrats up.

  6. NONE of those REPUBLICAN who have allowed the moron to destroyed everything so far, are to be trusted.They need to see the light an loose their rotten money. Or take it to the cemetery with them .

  7. Vilenvarselfmakenmivendatkavelbasttrumhifrhapapotmakenokmidochtortchelvstvereklakdatnojpazvelvarmaniachtervilendatchutmendenchelokmidochtortvar900makenselftrum600datchutnijvarumvilvarsmirtmakenmiokdochtort

  8. The only cracks will be seeing is liberal America bending over again after Trump wins his second term.πŸ’©

  9. Our Republican Senators know it, too! They just opt to cower and kau-tau. Right, Tom Cotton? Right, John Bozeman? YOU SELF-SERVING COWARDS! Love to see how you explain it to your grandkids, as their tapwater ignites in flames and every drink of water comes from a plastic Nestle's bottle!

    You had your chance to stand up like men and you pussied out. Now we can't wait to blue you OUT!

  10. I hope the unstable genius finally takes a hint and resigns, and he probably would if he wasn't facing prison after he leaves office!

  11. Republicans you can run whomever, we've had enough of you.We want the white house and Senate…see ya Nov 2020 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊 🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊 🌊🌊

  12. I honestly can't say what's worse – the Republicans thinking he is fit or them not thinking he's fit and going along with it.

  13. LOL, yeah. Just like the Russian Oligarchs co-signed Trump's loans with Deutche Bank. (The loan papers are available online – no Russians there, lol.) MSNBC – what a bunch of losers.

  14. This is great news because GOP challengers to Trump are exposing what many elected Republicans are saying in private, and that can only hurt Dumb Donald in the long run.

  15. Trump is under direct order from Putin to crater the US economy and destroy the Atlantic alliance. If he succeeds in this term he may not even run in 2020, but will flee to Russia to collect a fat $20 billion cheque from his Russian bosses and retire to a nice, secure dacha on the Black Sea. All for a job well done.

  16. Maybe it doesn't really matter. Maybe Trump already knows that Russia is ready to send randsomware to state and local voter lists in November '20 too late for anyone to do anything about it.

  17. Mark "Hiking the Appalachian trail" Sanford or Joe "I lied about Obama but trust me" Walsh. GOP choice Sanford (the adulterer), Walsh (the racist liar) or Trump (the adulterous, racist liar). The party of family values, the Manson family maybe.
