  • As a European following the US elections, I'm still flabbergasted as to how, in a country founded on ideas of liberty and progress, the terms 'liberal' and 'progressive' are dirty words to such a large number of the population. ... especially since the logical opposite to these is to be illiberal and backwards and who would consciously WANT that?!

  • Joe Biden is a GOOF that voted for NAFTA which devastated the manufacturing industry in the rust belt states. President Trump brought the lowest unemployment rate in the history of the USA for African Americans, Hispanics and Asians because you have a businessman in the White House instead of BS politicians like dimensia joe Biden..

  • @ 0:28 "... brazenly ..." Ohhhhhhhh, SNAP !!! That is superb! 👑👍 Very interesting to note that out of all the possibilities / combinations of putting the candidates together, @ 2:07 there are Joe and Kamala - front row and *together* .... Spooky prediction? 😲 Whoooooooooo..... 🔮

  • ...Read more... Mr. Trump and his disorganized crime family, his consigliere William Barr, his "inside guy" Mnuchin and 'old guard' Republicans have been appointing judges throughout the entire justice system in America while enriching the wealthy and the wealthy corporations. All the while filling their pockets from the National Treasury, and Mr.Trumps acolytes have been buying up foreclosed mortgages 'cuz, "That's what smart business people do." ..(Trumps words NOT mine) !!!... VOTE BLUE ALL THE WAY THRU ...!!!

  • .Yeah it was Trump . Not the Corruption of the Democrat party and their Censorship of the Biden China, Ukraine, Russia Scandal with a Corrupt Mainstream Media. Joe Biden 47 years in the Corrupt Swamp Pay to Play Reveled, You are seeing the rabid-leftist takeover of the Democrat party and their absolute Embrace of Cancel Culture, the rabid leftist BLM/Antifa militia burning down Cities, Murdering and Intimidating people in the street, Looting and burning businesses, Threating anyone daring to Dissent from their Marxist narratives. TRUMP NOT A POLITION. CHINA OWNS BIDEN Marxist History = Watch Your Back (YOU WILL BE NEXT)

  • If it wasn't for the DNC leadership and their hatred of progressives Bernie Sanders would have won. But since joe biden was losing Amy And Pete pooled their delegates to Biden. And that's how he won. They never want a real progressive because they know progressives would end their corruption. Even Obama got in on that action. Biden is not even considering Warren for any of his cabinet seats only Bush era republicans. 🙄

    Lisa LenzLisa LenzMonth ago
    • I think he actually did show it, the first few times he tried the show without an audience -- one night in the theater, then a few nights at different places in his home. But then he pulled together the nice bookcase corner and the open-throat shirt and adjusted to only a couple of people being there, and he's been seeming not to miss the audience since. But I think you're right; he still does miss it.
