  1. PELOSI:   enough is enough. YOU are enabling dictatorship by stopping impeachment. This WH Mafia

    Nazi Pervert is making a joke of the Dems, the country and is implementing his
    Dictatorship. The  fascists feel empowered by his example.

  2. 5:08 if ppl had focused more on his emoluments violations rather than russiagate maybe he would have been impeached by now

  3. i salute this representative standing up for her people in face of such discrimination and racism …its a shame that the president is not worthy of the office , whilst she is doing her best for her own public …..sad to see the puerto rican's treated again as second class citizens considering their sacrifice in so many wars for america, and they have only received attention from the corporate exploiters for their pains :(… If was them , i would go push for the greenland swap deal , as at least the dane's would treat them fairly 🙂

  4. Every single promise that Trump made to his base, back in 2016, has been a broken promise. All of them except one: he continually brutalizes innocent Hispanic people. So I guess we know why Trump's base continues to support him, despite all of those broken promises: they're evil, disgusting, racist Nazis. Every single one of them. They don't care if Trump lies to them — just so long as he keeps terrorizing Hispanic people.

  5. This hurricane starts as a storm down in the Caribbean brushing over the windward Islands about two days ago and it's now a hurricane heading towards Florida. Why is it that Florida is such a hot zone for hurricanes.

  6. I just moved out of Florida a month ago.. Phew.. Was in the last one 2yrs ago. I'm over it.. Now I'm in Atlanta so what we get here 😆

  7. I am still wonder how they are going to build the wall with rolls of paper towels?? Are they going to be made in Mexico ?

  8. republicanism#REPUBLICANISMisAGAINST90percentOFamerica #MOSCOWMITCH + #POOTINbonespurs2020 + #2russiaAssistSCJustices for fascism usa, TO JOIN florida/georgia/sowcow…, the #SOUTHSgoodOldBoyPOLICESTATE. come visit, y'all!

  9. Trump pulling FEMA Funds is yet another urgent reason to e mail our reps, along with our, "reps,". Article 25 has been indicated basically from the start. Trump is inept, unfit, needs to be removed. We the People can make this stance clear-and relentless by sheer number.

  10. Let us just hope that Dorian wipes out Doral, and saves America from yet another diplomatic disaster, with a wall, of water.

  11. This is terrible to say but it’s the truth: I have very little sympathy for Florida. They voted for DeSantis and Trump. They are consistently involved in some nonsense (Trayvon Martin) and oftentimes I wish they would secede from the Union ends rant

  12. The House should start diverting funds away from the white house.  Let the "billionaire" blowhard pay for all his and his staffs  transportation/Living costs like every American must do.  He's living on welfare while in the white house.  If he did a presidential job then it's ok, but he's not doing a job.  Too busy tweeting, and watching tv.  Cut as much funds from the white house and any department that is diverting funds for his "wall".

  13. No one has stopped the people who own trump from doing as they pleased since trump took office. Something is happening that the people are in the dark about. Why does Congress behave as though they are not going to have to face re-election? What happened to the rule of law? Why is Congress totally stopped from doing anything that is not exactly what the people who actually own the country want by the Speakers of the House and Senate. Like this lady, all she has to offer is amazement and single letter to the temporary head of FEMA. We will hear nothing more about this. After midnight a whole new cycle starts. There will be no impeachment. But there will be something that we may never really understand because the media is so filtered here. There will be gun bills that do nothing. There will be billions of dollars missing after trump passes. The end is near.

  14. OUR STRONGEST HAND IMPEACHMENT .. TRUMP And REPUBLICANS are going to STALL you in court until after the election. Wake up begin impeachment now

  15. What is it precisely, we hope to accomplish, with this kindergarten roundtable, of sloppy journalistic finger painting? News flash, let me just put that on the mama boy fridge so's everyone can see.

  16. The only way that these United States of America is going to even "survive" Trump is if Moscow Mitch and Putrified Pelosi are removed from their positions immediately and the rest of Congress moves swiftly and deadly to block and stop every illegal move that Trump is doing! As soon as he does something, the house needs to move fast and pass legislation, to make sure his evil policies are never implemented! This is what the 3 branches of government was set up to accomplish and it is way past time for Congress to get up and and FINALLY do the job they are being highly paid to do!!!

  17. So I guess Obama…when he did exactly the same thing in 2014 had an "obsession with immigration, rooted in his xenophobia and racism" too. Hilarious. Go ahead. Google it. And guess what? There will be NO shortage of funds for any Hurricane disaster, ever. (They don't put the money in Al Gore's "Lockbox") Just more useless garbage from the Russian Oligarch Hoam-Masters!

  18. I just watched sixteen year old Greta Thunberg land in New York having sailed across the Atlantic in a small racing boat and heard her remind us again about the huge danger of climate change. Trump suddenly seemed even smaller and more pathetic an excuse for a human being than before and I felt quite humbled [and a little ashamed ] by the actions of a sixteen year old who had the guts to do something for all of us because she actually cares.

  19. WORTHLESS JONI ERNST AND CHUCK GRASSLEY OF IOWA BETRAYED IOWA. THEY KNEW WHAT TRUMP WAS DOING. THEY APPROVED WELFARE FOR FARMERS EVEN THOUGH FARMERS WERE EXPERIENCING THE MOST BANKRUPTCIES EVER. TRADE WAR IS ABOUT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES OR THE RICH PEOPLES MONEY. NOT IMPORTANT.

  20. If it was black people doing mass shooting they would have been done something but since it's white people they feel like all they really don't mean it

  21. Trump, Pence and their entire criminal administration are probably hoping Trump's Doral and it's bed bugs will be destroyed. Trump will leave the FEMA money alone if he will benefit from it and if Doral no longer exists; the inquiry into whether Trump is committing a crime by trying to hold the G6 (can we even say G7 anymore since Trump hates our allies so much) at his private resort.

  22. You say you saw a difference in 2018? That was a Blue Wave 🌊, in 2020 your going to see a BLUE SUNAMI !!!
    BERNIE SANDERS 2020!!

  23. Do nothing Corporate Dem's, the Courts said, you would have more subpoena power under Official Impeachment Inquiry. I could careless about that milktoast Mueller Report. He passed the baton to you Congress so do your job. Emoluments Clause and all the other corruption will fall in place!

  24. Yet another impotent oath breaker. You promised your constituents to be a check on the administration and hold Trump accountable. You took an oath to the United States, to defend the constitution. Not to deny doing so and punt the job to the general public to deal with. House dems should all have their salaries withheld until they start upholding their oaths or resign. Starting with Pelosi. Your oaths didn't come with a "but only if all members of all branches of government agree with and support you" clause.

  25. There is no problem for Trump to instruct anything anybody to come or go to different country like the instructions he ga e to trade with other countries but not China

  26. “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired with the Russian Government in its election interference activities.” Robert Mueller, III, Congressional Testimony. July 24, 2019

  27. priorities, gun control which is never ending while democracy is being shut down. fascism will take control of gun control. they will take all of them, and your dangerous looking knives

  28. it is also the will of the American people to have trump impeached. except for the wingnuts that support him, but really, are they Americans? or just members of the DJT cult.

  29. Any chance Lying,Cover-up THE TRUTH MSNBC HACKS will report .THE 70 PAGE I.Q. report about Corrupt Lying James Comey?? Doubt it,the entire lot of worthless Frauds at this Garbage news outlet won't report the truth,or even Mention THE I.Q. report about the most CORRUPT F.B.I. director in U.S.History!!!!

  30. No One Is Protecting Us…How many products can you name in consumer or business hands if used as directed cause bodily harm or even death? try these on for size. Weed killers, most kinds of industrial coal mining, asbestos, tobacco and vaping products, opioid products, assault rifles, and the process of fracking near ground or surface waterways, unless under strict professional guidelines and care, absent those, are deadly, all the while allowing the manufactures of such products to earn millions of dollars in sales or licensing fees. When made aware of the dangers of their products, can claim not to be responsible since government oversight allowed them to exist.

  31. De santos said kemp are beneficiaries of voter suppression, gerrymandering and Russian hacking. Neither of these people should be in office

  32. Americans including the House of Representatives would rather spend our money destroying other countries infrastructure than repairing ours

  33. FEMA bosses said they have tens of billions sitting banks. They had no objection to this small reallocation of funds to the border crisis. Yet again, MSNBC are misleading their audience.

  34. People are still sitting waiting instead of moving to safer ground. Waht idiots. If this storm maintains its power and hits just the right point it could be the most deadly storm EVER to hist the US. We (in the UK) are already feeling the tail of the storm and its clearly going to cause real damage over here. If waters around Miami surge and rise, then all of those sink holes and subterranian rivers might pull at the foundations of multi story properties in the towns and cities creating very dangerous conditions/

  35. what percent of the money is been diverted very very low fema chief says no problem but only dems have voice on dem media

  36. Let’s hope there is a direct hit from hurricane Dorian on Mar-a-Lago and Donald Trump and his whole family is staying there when it happens. LOL If they were all washed out to sea, my reaction would be “thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers.” LOL

  37. If U.S. federal law remove limits from Puerto Ricans to vote in Presidential elections (while in the Island) .. I am assure (that at least) Trump will 'fake' a different approach to them.
    Trump is trash human being!!!!

  38. Seriously, evacuate fast! If anyone saw the movie "Crawl", don't be like those people who chose to ride out the storm, and end up being gator bait!

  39. "Justice has it's own timeline" and yet every day Trump is in office he gets more desperate and crazier and Rep. Debbie just doesn't seem to understand that and she can't figure out why the FEMA funds she has asked for from the last hurricane still have not been delivered. I am still thinking that Adam Schiff is the only person in the DOJ who has a clear understanding of the need to impeach Trump.

  40. americans want him out NOW.we are aware that he is not for America.he is not for the survival of humanity,except the wealthy.the longer hes allowed to run rough,the more dangerous he is to ALL LIFE on planet earth

  41. They will never get an impeachment, Pelosi knows this, it will only back fire and house seats will be lost.

    First President to be impeached for a nothing Burger it's also retribution

    Dems lost to bad so sad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. Mr. Trump gave up a Billionaire life style , spent his own money to get elected ! is doinating his salary to charity ,, to try and preserve this great country from being taken over by a bunch of Washington Bereaucrats ,,,better know as the Swamp ,,, who are trying to turn America into a socialist country with the result America turning into Venezuela or Argentina . Thank You Mr. Trump !!!!!!!!

  43. They needed to stay on topic. You're throwing too many issues into one interview. It's not like she's running for president. It would have been nice to have reporting on fema's funds and how much their spending grows every year as these natural disasters become more common. The american people need to understand the costs of inaction to combat climate change.

  44. If Democrats were serious, we'd print out the Mueller report and send it, throught the mail, to every household in the country. Yes, it would be expensive. But it will get people reading it.

  45. Congresswoman, American people know exactly what this WH is doing, looks like our congress is the one with your heads in the sand. Do your jobs!

  46. A few days ago, I heard through the grapevine, that Melissa Lee would be doing a report on CNBC called Cannabis, Inc., I immediately made up my mind to watch, however, after watching her pitch it on Squawk Alley today, with greasy lips, I almost had second thoughts about watching, her supposedly marketing greasy lip appearance only served for this blogger as a distraction, its hoped that for the program, saner heads will prevail.

  47. Informative Video! I think you will find this interesting
