  1. They're pro independence, not pro democracy. Liberals are just as weird about maga-esque world view as their deplorable roommates.

  2. How on earth could the situation in Hong Kong possibly work out for everybody? That would be like someone in 1775 saying " I hope the Revolutionary War works out for everyone."
    What is wrong with Trump?

  3. Why isn't trump backing the UK and China 50 yr agreement on Hong Kong stating after hand over HK would remain self governing for 50 yrs?!

  4. Congratulations. I hope the drain is swamped, the economy is working for everybody, the office of the POTUS is served by the best people, the opioid crisis is solved, the best healthcare is available for everybody. I hope electing the failed businessman buffoon to the highest office was worth it.

  5. I knew there was a reason why he was toying with China on this tariff crap. I felt in my heart there was a personal reason for his threats. He is pure trash.

  6. Ultimately, Trump and his crime family's own financial gain is what his presidency is all about. That's what it's always been about. What's worse is that they don't even hide it.

  7. The fog around America's image is lifting, and unfortunately what the world is seeing is not what America's people think it is, because it isn't any longer.

  8. Hey liberals this is happening world wide. Many Independents are with you we need to unite and drop our petty differences.

  9. MSNBCannibals desperate to weave fake news linking Indonesia with Chinese Businesses etc etc .. When MSNBCannibals is the mouthpiece for the Chinese communist politburo and pedofile organized crime interests in the USA .. This is why they are HOAX NEWS reporting EPSTEIN getting ahead of what they are involved in (It is all coming out and MSNBCannibals know it)

  10. Reminds me so much of the sixies in America as the Vietnam anti draft students were bloodied badly by their so called democracic forces??

  11. Rachel – I am sorry to see MSNBC carrying the water for the warmongers – I have never seen proof of any of the claims of IP theft or their intent to crush America, on the contrary I see America attacking them –  starting an economic war with them along with everyone else we are currently attacking – Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Venezuela, North Korea, Iran to name a few. I thought competition was the bedrock of capitalism – at least that's what the workers are told, but when the our executives get worried another company is beating them the people all have to go to war to fight the new bogeyman.Another thing,Why don't we ask Tom about the bills that just passed thru the house that take away America's independence forever – we will be linked as one  – and will never be able to claim impartiality again. When asked about impeachment why didn't we hear about the 'great new bills' the democrats were working on instead of impeachment – the same bills that Mitch will definitely pass and trump will sign to become the great deliverer to Israel. Nancy already went to Israel during the August break with Steny Hoyer to celebrate her passage of the big one to the senate July 24th. I'm not sure everyone in the country will be happy to have America partner with Israel but maybe they will,  I think we should have the opportunity to discuss it – when the American people overwhelmingly voted democrat it wasn't so they could prioritize bills regarding Israel – it was to fight back against trump. Israel loves trump and now we know our house priorities and it is not the American people – it is the Israeli people. in my opinion.  When Israel decides trump should go then he will go, in my opinion. This is not a slam against Israel, they are doing what is in their best interest –  this is about what is in the best interest of an independent America and the media responsibility in delivering that information.

  12. the Trump family were bad enough when they abused the real estate market, state and federal tax laws and business ethics domestically; then they went international and became a global criminal enterprise, a global threat!
    the good news – the investigations do not cease when they leave office!

  13. Mitch and Trump has sold Kentucky's and America's soul to China and Russia. Isn't that what Judas did to Jesus.

  14. This is the worst sort of journalism that america can promote, hypocrisy at its finest. Trump was correctly rebuffed on unfounded clinton conspiracy theory (even tho most of us if we dont agree, still think the whole epstin case is fishy😉) however, rachel makes a living out of conspiracy theories. She compiles informatiom and delivers it in the most salacious way. If you recall all of her trump is a russian plant etc. Where she'd compile all these names with open ended question and no concrete proof of anything. I can accept that trump clearly dosent have a standard of truth or political correctness. But shouldnt you have some journalistic integrity.
