    I’m tired of seeing all the insane, moronic or just not-well-thought-out posts regarding abolishing the electoral college. We KNOW the Left is still butt-hurt about Killary losing. We get it. We KNOW you mooks THINK ‘the’ answer is “soft socialism.” (No such thing) So here’s some actual facts, from real books and such, that you all need to digest so you’re not so inept sounding… The 2000 and 2016 elections were only the 4th and 5th time in our country’s history of 58 contests, wherein the winner lost the popular vote. The other 3 times were in the 19th century. 53 for 58, not bad. And as Winston Churchill once said, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.” Have a nice day!

    Well George you have just shown your True Colors; I don’t intend to watch you at all anymore. You are supposed to be doing the news, not making it up. What a liar!! Just like all Liberals.

    Seems like every other TV program is labeled. Shouldn’t the news be labeled that “the following program is the sole opinion and views of the news reporters. It may not contain facts, just opinions and biases.” Aren’t there laws about false advertising and/or being transparent about program contents? I’m just saying journalism is dead and these news sources are just shows now.

    What is truth in report and journalism when it is one sided like communists. There was a time in America printed news had truth and values. It’s bothersome these smears on all sides of political parties and tactics are used to win an American’s Citizen’s vote. Once in office politicians somehow get rich and make it a permanent lifetime career instead of working for the American Citizens fixing economy. Now President Trump is different, wealthy before his position, a true philanthropist, there to make a difference govern for what is right for those with less in a positive way and these career politicians hate him for that. Jealously because these politicians need to kiss everyone to rise in rank level owing others.

    I think that the Democrats should have to pay back all the money they used for the impeachment witch hunt we the people are tired of our money being used for false investigations in order to unseat our President it is corruption by the Democrats and we should not have to pay for it also the Democrats should be held accountable for their actions

    Any fair minded person watching the Senate trial today would be able to see how unfairly Trump has been treated and that this is indeed the totally partisan Impeachment Hoax that EVERYBODY, including the Democrats, truly knows it is. This should never be allowed to happen again!

    Nancy didn’t even go through the proper channels to open the inquiry. The buck should stop right there. However, if anyone with half a brain watched this morning the calm, collected Senate presentation of FACTS, you would see right through this trainwreck of a Schiff show that most of us knew would be debunked. What is done in darkness always comes to light. Even the Dems secret basement meetings.

    Truth is calm, succinct, and confident, without requiring a long diatribe of repetitive misleading assertions that the deliverer seeks to present, digest, and regurgitate ad nauseam, as if the misrepresentations will become facts. Trump’s team was perfect!

    QUID PRO QUO:
    What Congressmen do at election time to raise support for their campaign. Consider the dollars given to them by Planned Parenthood alone. Lol. And they “impeached” our President for trying to build relationship and discourage corruption with another country’s President. Lame.

    *And the reason they are uninformed voters is journalistic integrity is dead. Most mainstream media outlets are nothing more than propaganda machines. Many of the uninformed don’t know how or are too lazy to verify a story before taking it as the truth.

    * For as long as Bernie (and Liz and Joe) has been in Washington and has a record of doing very little, I’m surprised that anyone believes that he will ever be able to accomplish his big ideas. He will not.

    * Those that blame others for wrongdoing are usually trying to cover up their own! I believe Adam started writing his book somewhere back in 2016, and has been adding to it ever since! How in the Hell can anyone possibly believe any of his fictional BS?

      Once again you are a liar. Your comment is not true at all. You really should check your facts so you don’t look so stupid. Trump said he took a picture with him one time but has never talked with him. You are a IDIOT!

    Stopped by to read comments.

    It’s obvious there are a lot of people that don’t understand America is in a Culture War. A war that uses political correctness to destroy free thought.

    When a phone call to seek inquiry into foreign corruption with the use of our tax dollars is considered a crime, this country has lost its way.

    There is no interference in our election looking into corruption by anybody running for public office. While it may interfere with a candidate seeking a nomination, that is part of politics. It’s the President’s duty to look into corruption regardless of who it affects.

    We have a whole group of people that want to create a problems when there isn’t one. This is all politics and a waste of time and the taxpayer’s money!
