    That's why Putin doing it back……

  • Martín Lopez on April 28, 2022

    Lightning fast means hypersonic misiles, not nuclear bombs.

  • Courtney Hunnell on April 28, 2022

    Return to Camelot, I've been told y'all jfk jr is the legitimate V.P.. every lie will be revealed,most don't even know JFK truth. He warned us and was murdered

  • Martín Lopez on April 28, 2022

    Ukraine is Russia's Bay of Pigs.

  • Steve Folkes on April 28, 2022

    More dangerous now? I remember '62. Didn't a Russian officer have an American jet shot down over Cuba with the loss of the pilot's life? Did we not fire some shots across some Russians bows? Yes, to both. It is IMPOSSIBLE to come that close ever again without HAVING nuclear war.

  • Stephen Sloan on April 28, 2022

    very interesting

    "One true measure of a nation is its success in fulfilling the promise of a better life for each of its members. Let this be the measure of our nation." — JFK

  • Brother Taro on April 28, 2022

    Maybe MSNBC and/or YT could do a better job with the trolls. Think?

  • jeff mazzei on April 28, 2022

    Trump and Putin are
    Evil and now the most dangerous leaders in History.

  • Jay Gibson on April 28, 2022

    Johnson wanted war, so JFK had to go. Sound familiar?

  • NO WAY on April 28, 2022

    The Kennedy crime family killed Monroe

  • Turd Ferguson on April 28, 2022

    Today's Democrats: "Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can do for you".

  • T. R. Campbell on April 28, 2022

    One of the greatest things that our iconic JFK did was to look at Americans tax system and realize that it was detrimental to growth and to prosperity. JFK drastically revamped and revised Americans tax system and the end result was a supercharged economy in his era.
    Trump dusted off the iconic JFK tax system. He then turned America’s energy sector loose and revived America’s mining sector. He also removed bureaucratic growth impediments. The result was a supercharged economy until COVID-19 killed millions of people and ravaged the globes economies.
    JFK left us a partial roadmap for economic success. We have a roadmap for energy independence. I don’t know why we don’t open that roadmap and instead we have runaway inflation, the highest in 40 years before the Russian/Ukrainian war. What we see now with our new administration is catastrophic.

  • D on April 28, 2022

    When Putin''s troops are faced with mined & /or booby-trapped roads, that his railway beds have been destabilized, that his fuel supplies have been watered down, that food cannot reach his troops, that his "Oily Garchs" have abandoned him & have left Russia, he will cease to inflict his evil on the people of Ukraine.
    His supposed allies have realized that supporting him may be okay for a week or a month, but in the long-term, to stick with Putin, is a Fool Errand, much like supporting Trump will soon be.


  • Steve Harding on April 28, 2022

    Becoming President was NOT a daunting task for the 'Orange Mango' who was just going to con, and lie his way through like he has his entire life. he also didn't learn from his mistakes,
    because the 'stable genius' doesn't make mistakes. Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV.

  • Roger Out on April 28, 2022

    Incoming conspiracy morons with absolutely no evidence.

  • Gabe West on April 28, 2022

    Jfk wasn't radical like democrats are today

  • Daniel Richter on April 28, 2022

    Interesting the a left wing propaganda network would use JFK’s quotes. Do they realize that, by the actions of the current leftist democrats, JFK would be called a right wing extremist. He was a true hero and stood for the United States. You haven’t got any democrat today that fit that description.

  • Mike McLintock on April 28, 2022

    Don't get JFK started on Jordan Marsh furniture!

  • Paul on April 28, 2022

    Man could we use a guy like JFK today!

  • Ismael Behi on April 28, 2022


  • DJ Pomare on April 28, 2022

    Why are people fighting in Ukraine when Putin is in Russia? STOP THE WAR.

    Why do Americans shoot 44 other Americans each day? PUT THE GUNS DOWN.

    Why are Trump's trials taking so long? JAIL TRAITOR TRUMP.

    Why does America ignore 1,020,149 Covid deaths? USE MASKS & VACCINATE.

  • Burke Herrick on April 28, 2022

    JFK and Khrushchev never wanted open war never wanted the death of millions of billions of people that would’ve resulted from nuclear warfare. They were I think in 62 and even in 63 allies for peace it was the generals in both of their militaries who wanted that war to turn into a hot war. When I look at President Kennedy and I don’t see a blood thirsty tyrant who seek to impose his own will upon the world. What I do see is a measured, thoughtful, introspective and caring individual who learn from his mistakes, Learned from history‘s greatest thinkers and only wanted the best for his country and the world. These people on the news today when they speak of heroes like Kennedy, king, Bobby Kennedy, Malcolm X, in the end Abraham Lincoln I really do believe that they don’t really know these men they don’t know the danger they all were in they don’t understand the gravity but what happens to men in their positions and they don’t understand the impact that their deaths have had upon this country in the world. They like to use heroic language, brave talk with chests puffed up and held up high but they don’t know these men they truly do not know these great American heroes that gave they’re all for a better country and a better world.

  • Dave Sonowski on April 28, 2022

    JFK would not recognize this Democrat Party as a matter of fact he couldn't of lead this Disgrace of a Party and thats fact

  • Matthew Newbold on April 29, 2022

    If he were alive today MSNBC would absolutely hate him. He was an anti war, small govt, tax lowering President, which goes directly against the Leftist ideology. Rick Maddow and company would falsely accuse him of Russian collusion, misogyny, and racism. The one trick pony network.

  • Michael Bee on April 29, 2022

    Nice try but Biden is no JFK.

  • Janie K Carney on April 29, 2022

    Why hasn’t gas been turned off to Ukraine!! Hate to ask a stupid question but I don’t know the answer.

  • Janie K Carney on April 29, 2022

    But he didn’t respect his Wife!!! Slept with every skirt around.

  • Janie K Carney on April 29, 2022

    If he had lived, people would have torn him down. America rips every President we have. So sad. Only 20 years later we might acknowledge they did a great job.

  • I D on April 30, 2022

    Given the Circumstance

    What's it matter
    if you're old and
    weathered. What
    matters is whether
    you can do the job.

    Given the Circumstance

    Especially, whennn
    Sense and Wisdom
    is a premium, aaa
    Seasoned prune has
    an advantage.

    Given the Circumstance.

    It's concentrated
    Sugars like Wisdom
    concentrated, the
    proof's in the eating –
    doing the job, Aplomb.

    Given the Circumstance..

    T.R. with heavy bipolar,
    Lincoln's depression,
    Wilson with a stroke,
    FDR's having Polio, &
    Reagan's Alzheimer's.

    Given the Circumstance…

    Just a small sample
    of doing it with forms
    of weathered dementia.
    So we ask whether Biden,
    while doing it so, So Well.

    Given the Circumstance… !

    So, so much better than
    the Disturbing, Sociopathic,
    Narcissist Failure 🎃🐴🤡.

    If remember Mr.JFK American people must unity and diffending Amerika

  • Danny Burch on May 1, 2022

    Every man women an child lives under a nuclear sort of Damocles capable of being cut at any moment by miscalculation or by madness the weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us J.F.K.

  • Norm Dyer on May 3, 2022

    Have read all of his speeches. His philosophy was as sound and noble as any. In fact the best. His deficiency was not taking the need for a palace guard seriously. He needed a lot more protection from powers greater than himself, and he needed enough constraint on the media so as to expose the forces arraigned against the presidency without being censoring by them.
