  1. Heh.. "This isn’t my trade war," Says Donald Trump just one of these amazing stories that probably his supporters believe.

  2. If the economy tanks, Orange's truth-denying dithering will make W's shockingly slow and minimal response to 2008 look very good.

  3. He's a damned lunatic, he needs to be put in a straight-jacket & an asylum needs to be re-opened & him put in it!!

  4. President Donald. J. Trump is not qualified to be president of the United States of America. It is ultimately the fault of the American people for allowing such a mentally ill man the chance to occupy the Oval office. It is now clear. If we get through this, we need to change the way we choose our leaders.

  5. Trump goes from "I am God/the chosen one" to screaming at his staff calling them the enemy off the state. This man needs his medication asap. He is mentally ill and getting more unstable with the day.

  6. The system of governance in the USA is in shreds !! The man is nuts but millions are still willing to vote for him because he said he would build a wall !!

  7. MSNBC, although I agree 100% with your sentiments on Donald Trump, I can’t watch/listen to you for more than a couple of minutes because you speak so fast and so much that it fries my brain. For heaven’s sake, slow down, insert sone pauses, stop tripping over your own words. It’s exhausting.

  8. It's a feel-good segment for perpetually appalled, but it's been largely the same thing for years now. Each time the response is this is the week it reeely went bonkers and, yes, it feels that way. But nothing changes. And while I like John Heilemann, his "Wick-Wilson" moments and inability to accurately read from a teleprompter – a rather common problem on MSNBC – reminds me that people go to school for this. It's why, in the UK, anchors are called News Readers. A little supplemental training would not hurt these folks 😉

  9. We do have to look at the whole concept of a mental institution for baseball cap hairdo guy. Being least racist doesn’t mean your not. Trumps just sayin he less racist than other racists.

  10. One morning not so far into the future the staff of White House finds Donald Trump searching the corners of that Oval room and mumbling to himself.
    And then USA will have Mike Pence as President, what a time line to be alive.

  11. All I want is TRUMP free days. No escape.This man is everywhere. He is mentally ill! How do you talk to a lunatic?

  12. Hahaha Allies who's been hypocritical now I already in my people does too LMFAO trump you should pay close attention to this I was a lil boy I started of making music then it went to tv shows then movies then Congress and Democrats in some of the president I am one who can sale you out in put you out so you can be homeless like the rest of us Trump wink wink bye chica

  13. Jesus Christ. What does he have to do to be removed? For his own sake. He needs to be taken care of as a vulnerable older man.

  14. IT'S THE LUIBERALS FAULT FOR NEVER LETTING UP. THEY SHOULD HAVE JUST LET HIM BE PRESIDENT. THE POOR GUY CAN'T EVEN THINK WITH ALL YOU SNOWFLAKES YELLING AT HIM ALL THE TIME. LEAVE TRUMP ALONE JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE! 😉

  15. Privilidge, entitlement and huge wealth do not necessarily make the best ingredients for a stable, balanced perspective of life.

  16. This panel is too slow to come to the realization that tRump is mentally ill. Too little, too late. Your long-term support for tRump speaks louder than anything you say today. Nobody cares what you think.

  17. I never go to Fox News but it could be interesting to see the only (lonely) place where they are praising and praying for their choosen one (Christ and Savior) for the G6 summit but I think… I would give it a pass.

  18. So, we keep hearing about people who have become Democrats since this presidency has anyone changed from being a Democrat to Republican during the current Presidency? Just a question that crossed my mind…

  19. Fact is, Trump The Chump inherited $200 million then went broke, $900 million in the hole.
    At the same time, Don The Con was fighting thousands of lawsuits (contractors he screwed) he was paying a guy to ghostwrite write "ART OF THE DEAL" all while he was going bankrupt. LOL 

    Fox viewers somehow claim Trump is a great businessman that will do the same for the country. They think he is a faithful, honest, good Christian man that cares about the average American.
    Good lord. These morons walk amongst us.

  20. Please the American People are begging for someone to do what is necessary to have this President Mentally Evaluated !! Its not Funny our Nation and the SECURITY of the World !! Remove him from office he is mentally unstable !! Our Nation is at stake !

  21. Trump is Billy Mummy in that Twilight Zone episode, and Walsh is trying to get everyone to rush him before he banishes everyone in gov, nation & the world to the cornfield… But daddy McConnell won't let anyone at him.

  22. We are constantly told we can disagree but still be civil. But how do you have civil discourse with these Trumpites that accept constant lies, race baiting, and flailing buffoonery as a virtue. What you will countenance exposes your character and while we should respect everyone's right to an opinion, not every opinion (or person) has a right to be respected.

  23. OR they could be deliberately encouraging him because they're fed up and want the world to know what he's really like. Also Mike Pence wants him outed because he wants to be president at least for a little while

  24. Area 51 should be sufficient to contain Trump, but it might be a bit overcrowded. Yea man we're all doped up on news and entertainment as a sheep could ever be. "antula" The electoral is just another entity other than the one "We" voted for.

  25. Trump is reflecting on the Fellowship deceased leader plan who visited him before his death. What was the conversation? What was his marching orders for Russia and China? Why are the fellowship of Republican Congressmen and Senators giving him free reigns? The media is Trump puppets and they can't see it because it has become personal.

  26. Donald Turmoil Trump, has nothing but screw America. He has caused division within his very own country. He isolated America from friendly alias purposely, why? Trump didn't run for office to better the USA. He ran for all the wrong reasons. No matter what this fool says about racism his behavior shows opposite. Why should America and other world leaders trust an out spoken liar. If a candidate cannot be fair across the board that candidate should be disqualified. We all should able to enjoy benefit from changes.

  27. "…in this world nobody can be trusted." Well guess what, Donny, since you are in this world, you cannot be trusted either, by your own declaration. Most of us already know that.

    Donny did make one accurate statement: "…we have great mental illness." The imperial "we" means "me," or "I." Yes, Donny is mentally ill, unfit to serve in the most powerful seat in the world. When will We The People rectify that situation?

  28. "DICKTATOR" In short Trump & his administration is Not Educated UP TO THE PAR .Very Sorry to said those less info and educated are still believe in "Trump".If he can save the payroll by received "$1 Salary" but "He HAD Screw Up The Business World" by End Up Losing Trillions of $.Who Want To Hire Him? or FIRE HIM?

  29. Why is it nearly impossible to get rid of this disaster? What does it take? How can he be favored to win the primary and be in a position to win re-election? What's wrong with our system that this man is out there destroying everything he touches but no one seems to have the power to stop him? How could we impeach Bill Clinton without much trouble, but it seems nearly impossible to get impeachment proceedings moving against this wacko? There is something wrong with a system that can't deal effectively with a disastrous situation like this. And a system that would allow the re-election of this man—that would allow this man to continue to torment and destroy this country for another 4 years is beyond comprehension.

  30. What a load of BS., Using mental illness is letting the republican party off easy.. the collateral damage is on the streets .

  31. I believe the fact that he faces indictment when he's out of office is getting to him. Especially, since he's based his entire Administration on Hateful Racist Conspiratorial Alternative Facts! That has no[ FACTUAL ] bearing on the Real World that is now A Big Hand of Truth Slapping him AND HIS SUPPORTERS [ THOSE GUN TOTING DREAMERS LOSING IT AS WELL WITH THEIR DOMESTIC TERRORIST ANGRY RANTS ] in the Face!!!!!!! THE True Planet doesn't fit their Fake one , Never will and begining with the Electing of A Barack Obama in the White House ( Who Trump uses as a counterpoint to His Own Presidency) They Are All Losing It! From the Top on Down. There is no Hateful Make Believe that can Stand Up to the Truth that This Country, It's Citizens Are Better Than What Is Pushed Now! The world of 44, Since 45 is always bringing him up as a comparison, is nothing like what 45 is giving and he knows it! And the Mental breakdown is self evident that the latter and his supporters can't take it! And the proof ……just watch Your TV News, [Fox News isn't even hiding the Truth anymore ] and those despot tweets.. Really People and these are just the least of the Bubble Worlds popping!
