Trump and his supporters are out of touch with reality.   If you don't know by now, that the most powerful man in the world who would rather get his news from TV, or reading what some new outlet says,  when he has the best intel at his finger tips;  if you don't think something is wrong with that, you (like Trump) have no clue how the government works, or you're just as looney as he is.

Author William Engel ( ago)
This news agency is so pathetic and sad. I am perpetually surprised that they are still in business. The brainwashing techniques that you, the liberal, are being subjugated to and believing -> Constant repetition of tag lines, Patriarchal and matriarchal appearance of disappointment, the appearance of popularity, the perceived notion of what intelligence looks like to the common man being used as the foundation of their presentations of their lies, groups of like minded people in constant verbal agreement with a couple of them in slight variations of their paradigm in order to appear authentic, group laughter (to remind you of being laughed at in high-school and pressing you to take their side), and precisely timed emotional outbursts of frustrations in order to appeal to the group mentality of "we must band together" to solve this issue (never you mind what the actual issue is, for we are your leader figures and you can just trust that we know what we are doing"). It is my hope that some of you, the brainwashed, can find the freedom to think for yourselves. Trump is not your enemy, these soulless media creatures with their followers of mind slaves are.

The only moral and honourable thing that can be done is to replace the whole trump government and put the person in power that won the popular vote. If Mrs Clinton had came in second in votes or anyone else in the future they must be put in power because they were running an honest campaign, this is far worse than watergate. This is sadly as bad as no worse than the assassination of a president because it is the assassination of America and democracy

I spent half of my life (25 years) in the United States, and l have nothing but respect for american people, they appreciate hard working people, and they all have great values, l also respect who they voted for but not necessary agree with all of them, and I understand that is part of what America is, there is a right to disagree, and a freedom of speech, my humble opinion is that Mr. Trump does not represent what America is, he does not inspire unity or respect, and he is misrepresenting an awesome country and a lot of good hearted people, it is hard to please everybody while being the president of the USA, it is a task that not just anybody can accomplish , and l think we all are seeing it, God bless America specially in times like these.

Author Will Ganness ( ago)
FACT - There is no evidence after almost a year of exhaustive searching for a Trump/Russian connection.
FACT - We dont know yet if there is any evidence of Obama wiretapping Trump but we do know the Obama used many clandestine measures to promote his political agenda - ordering banks to finance liberal group instead of fines, using the IRS as a weapon against conservatives, Meeting hundreds of times with operatives who were involved in election fraud. Wiretapping EU leaders etc. There has not been any full investigation into this, and i bet Trump has the evidence and is waiting for the press to get all over its self on this one.

BUT the MSM still insists on investigating the Fake news on Trump/Russia Cnx & The insistence that NO wiretapping occurred despite it being reported in their own news sources, when the truth is they dont know. (clapper and the CIA and FBI arent the only ways to get a tap.

Pres. Trump might apologize once Obama apologizes for all the lies, letting Americans die, allowing terror to spread throughout the world, bowing down to communist dictators, targeting media and military personnel, giving terrorist nations tax payer money, releasing terrorist for a traitor, doubling the national debt with nothing to show for it and on and on.

I'm confused about this idea that Trump should apologize and get on with things. This is a criminal accusation. Besides this being libel if he was lying, wouldn't that be an impeachable offense? And if that directly is not impeachable, then let's get him on the stand during these hearings and have him say things under oath. THEN he can be impeached just like Clinton then. Nobody should be "moving forward" except for an IMPEACHMENT HEARING.

Team Trump Are LAIRS! ! ! ! Team Trump Create Fake News Daily! ! ! ! Dictator wannabe Trump will never apologized for anything he says because he is childish and petty. Dictator wannabe Trump lack leadership skills because he fails to take responsiblity for his actions. There are serious questions that need to be answered. Did Trump's campaign coordinate with Russian intelligence to sabotage our democracy? Does Trump keep lavishing praise on Putin as payback for helping Trump win? Is he being blackmailed by the Kremlin? We can't stop Team Trump from lying ten times a minute, but we can keep the pressure on Republicans in Congress not to let this administration off the hook. We the People need to demand an independent investigation into Trump and Russia immediately. Trump is not the SMARTEST person on Team Trump. There is no more dangerous menace to civilization than a government of incompetent, corrupt or vile men. Dictator wannabe Trump is the first President since FDR not to be considered The Leader of the Free World and has over 50 lawsuits within his first month of service. Trump is MAKING AMERICA WEAKER and not Safer and Stronger. Google “Impeach Trump” to express your desires to put an end to Dictator wannabe Trump agenda.

The great barrier reef is dead, that's important news. The sun has changed have any of you noticed? Why? All you news whores want to talk about is how much you hate Trump! I want to hear REAL NEWS, not repetitive  trash talk against our President or the people who support him!

Germany, Britain, Australia and Mexico ARE THE POINT of Donald's agenda: He was put in place by RUSSIA to sow discord in NATO so Putin can continue his Ukraine invasion and further Russian influence through Syria without a "united front" from "squabbling" NATO countries.

A president who: does all he can to destabilize NATO and America's relationships with it's allies; cripples America's ability to influence international affairs by gutting the State Department and aid budget; pours resources into military hardware which is ineffective in cold water power projection; increased internal security while gutting social cohesion programmes which will increase resentment among the poor; and plans tax reforms that increase inequality and destabilize society; sounds like the behaviourviour you would expect from someone working in the interests of Russia.

I appreciate Panetta's (very brief and limited) comments on North Korea. I live in South Korea (and have for over 13 years) and the "threat" has always been here. That said, people here are used to it and recognize it's a lot of posturing, mostly for the local North Korean audience. South Koreans fear Trump and uninformed, ill-advised, "strong-armed" policies in an area he knows is far away, and doesn't really have an interest in (no Trump Towers here in East Asia). He nevertheless has an ability to create chaos and potenially war. His Sec of State is worthless, and cannot be depended on to reign him in. Korea just impeached (yeah!!) the corrupt and scandal-ridden president, so has 2 months before the snap election gives us a new president-- not a long time to hold an election, yet seemingly too long to be without a president in the dangerous days of drumft.
