    Seems like all the Republicans want a dictator in our president

    An ounce of decency from McConnell. Thank you senator for your honesty. Respect hard earned.

    Trump needs to be arrested, indicted, tried and thrown in prison for a long time. If not and he ends up in the white house again this country will be in deep shit. As a former republican I'm not saying there couldn't or shouldn't be a republican president. Just not Trump.


    Meanwhile, the age of consent for sex is under 18 in 40 states in america

    That's offensive to me ( what Graham said), but in some circles it's rumored Trump will be re- elected so he might be right. ( That's a very scary thought).

    Most influential Republican since Ronald Regan!? President Regan is the one that put “trickle down” economy into effect! Which really started the slide downhill for average Americans and helping to create the 1% being in control of this country! Ah, I see, so the former guy is here to finish us off and turn it into an autocracy under the great orange dictator! Please vote blue or any freedoms left in this country (except for the rich) are doomed! I am not a big fan of our government at this time, any of them, but republicans are trying to destroy our democracy! It may be flawed but it is up to us save it!

    What can I say L.Graham is talking to the wind,Your guy is not a president wish that they stop calling the former loser president,president.

  • Daniel Bradford on January 18, 2022

    Thanks to Biden's bumbling, the GOP is going to gain 40+ seats in the House in 2022 and 6-8 seats in the Senate.

  • David McKendry on January 18, 2022

    Remember what Lindsey said on Jan 6th Subject, at the time. McCain would slap him silly today.

  • Richard Thomas on January 18, 2022

    If Lyndsay ever got married .Knew what it's like to care for another person other than himself. OH , Never mind .Trump was married 3 times , so nevermind.

  • Jay Gray on January 18, 2022

    FORMER president. Stunning to me that anyone would want a leader still under investigation for crimes, and possibly end up being charged…and believe HIM as opposed to the evidence. Not meaning to downplay the seriousness, but one guy held some people hostage and is immediately designated a terrorist. Why not the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers? They threatened and tried to kill people too, they held people hostage, people died because of them.

    0:45 This is what that RACIST is talking about, just in case you were wondering…


  • Carolyn Thomas on January 18, 2022

    He's not a president and I pray that he never becomes president again. It's awful that the people are so caught up that they can't (& some will not even when they know the difference) distinguish right from wrong. The people that follow one that does wrong, will follow Satan to hell and have the nerves to blame God and ask why they r there
