"If the support for the investigation into Russia continues to drop Trump might feel empowered to shut it down"... Doesn't he have the power to shut it down regardless of public opinion? He could shut it down and even pardon himself if he chose.
I had to stop watching this video. I can't watch one more fox news clip. I know this is said a lot, but I feel dumber when watching Fox News. Maybe I just needed a I second to collect myself before I finish the rest of this video.
This Has Become A Bold Face Disrespect to the intellect of the American People. If you believe anything Fox News Said or better yet repeats it as facts. Your more than likely over 50 and we’re all waiting on you to die so the grown ups can run the planet.
the thing is that the people who think that its a witch hunt are the ones who are die hard republicans, which is the problem. Its our tribalistic tendencies to see anyone out side our group as the enemy. If your not on my side your bad, anyone on my side is good. And thats the problem, too many people will just vote for a party not the person on the ballot, we NEED to look at who is on the ballot no matter what side their actually on and determine, is this person going to do a good job and do what is needed, and not just use their public tax payer appointment to make themselves and their friends rich with insider trading, low bid contracts, useless and pointless appointments that serve only to pay them for sitting on a panel and producing a report that is not reviewed by actual professionals but by people who are there to push an agenda.
Hannity got rektd. He is one of the biggest problems in America. He doesnt even considered himself a journalist. Hes a talk show host. So anything that he says is his idea or opinion. And for anyone listening to his shit. Guess what? His idea and opinion could be complete bullshit with no evidence to his claim. And you believe it. That's called a cult.
i still remember when the south park creators said that they couldnt make fun of trump because they couldnt come up with something more absurd and/or ridiculous than what the president can come out on his own
you know sht hit the fan when south park cant make fun of the president because he is doing it all by himself
Whenever Guiliani does that "bug-eyed, look down" face, he looks like Smeagol getting surprise buttsex. Fucking ghoul.
It's like he has a split personality, and His Face can't even believe the shit His Mouth is saying.
Republican Presidencies Have 91X the Convictions Rate of Democratic Presidencies
Comparing presidential administrations by arrests and convictions: A warning for Trump appointees
Since 1969, Republican presidential administrations have 121 criminal indictments and 89 convictions, while Democrats have had 3 and 1.
“This brings the total number of the people charged in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to 32.”

The fact the mainstream media are hiding that Hillary Clinton and DNC paid the dossier which Steele (a British) collected from Russians says it's a witch hunt. Here's a collusion!
And I still haven't forgotten the fact that this witch hunt is just a distraction from the crimes that were done in the Obama administration, don't forget the spying that went on during the 2016 and 2015 campaign.
Don't watch many fox news but Hannity was right and those were facts!
There was no crime to appoint a special counsel and you need one to order 1.
Again John is not arguing against the facts that hannity showed. Instead John is just trying to humiliate Hannity. For example FBI lovers were in charge for Hillary Clinton "investigation" and cleared her before that that did any investigation. Strozk said he wanted to impeach Trump before this witch hunt began and typed in phone he wanted to stop trump from being president!!!
Why didn't the deep state warn trump about this so called Witch hunt???
Well they didn't bother to warn the democrat senator feinstein that her driver (20 years) was a chines spy!
“Set aside for now how you feel about Trump or politics because the question, ‘did a foreign government interfere in our election’ is something any reasonable person should want answered quickly.”
Oh John, when will you learn that Trumptards aren’t reasonable people? They reject reality itself whenever it doesn’t support their Dear Leader or their worldview.
I bet you would be stone cold silent if Lucifer Clinton was President with vice president being the Anti-Christ, except for laughing about millions of Christians being be-headed for knowing the truth, and refusing to denounce it! You are a very funny man, who, unfortunately, wouldn't know the truth if it kicked your ass!
Please don't make fun of physical aids like the sock gadget you made fun of on the show. Some people legitimately need these devices. The only way they can advertise these as normal devices is by having actors pretend to have the same issues with many people with disabilities have every day. (I understand if you don't agree or listen, but I thought I'd ask. :) It's important to help support persons with disabilities.)
Honestly we need to drop political parties bc all they do is allow biasism in one of the most important times we need to use our common sense and facts, blinding most people just becasue they want to support their party bc apparently that is more important than our actual problems. now im directly in the middle when it comes to parties theres a little bit of everything i agree with im just saying being biased it just the stupidest and most ignorant thing you can do
5:50 The argument is to ask why those individuals, some of whom have been outed as working with the Russians during the election, are not being investigated. The entire investigation is solely centered on Trump's campaign, when many people outside of that scope should ALSO be investigated. It isn't to say Trump did nothing wrong, but to say that others should also be looked into (and the investigation should be expanded).
That, so far, only Trump associates have been indicted is not proof of bias because we simply don't know all the details of the investigation. For all we know they investigated the entire 2016 election campaign and have only found a clear trail of evidence pointing to Trump associates. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point they find people in other places, but it makes sense that is only Trump's associates. After all, if Russia really wanted to manipulate the US, they need someone dense enough to ignore their own country counsel to make friends to the very entity that undeniably undermined our elections. Not to say those people are not being investigated, just that just because we don't know doesn't mean they are not under investigation.
Read the orders Muller got. They are open enough as it is.
And remember, Muller & Rosenstein are both registered Republicans. This is the main reason behind the addition of "establishment Republicans" to the "deep state" conspiracy theory. It is an ever growing theory that keeps adding people to it as more people get convinced of its stupidity. "You disagree with it? Then you must be a deep state agent! OMG!"
It's actually ALWAYS important to know what's been going on with Fox news, as well as the other major news outlets. All media is biased, and usually only gives one side, so you should reference outlets from both parties to get the full picture.
In Italy we had to go through this bullshit with Berlusconi when he first got elected. There were serious allegations about a possible ( but very plausibile and in my opinion undeniable) collusion with the italian mafia. He manufactured a conspiracy against him perpetrated by the "communist judges" and he got away with it. And i hate to be pessimistic america, but he is still very politcally avtive after almost twenty years
I'd say the elections should be declared invalid, all appointments and decisions made by tramp and his minions declared invalid as well, and Hilary givne the presidency that she won honestly with the majority of the us citizens voting for her..not for him, despite all his dishonesties with Russia and anyone else. I do not know constitutional law, nor if that is a possibility--but seeing as these people have trampled all over the constitution since they squirmed into office, let's do something fine and appropriate for the murrican people, and make an intelligent change, if needed..The only quick and e-intelligent way to end this horror story that has been foisted on the world and the citizens of that once great country, now reduced to laughing stock--horro film of the world.

It doesn’t matter what factual evidence you have, if they support Trump still they will not care. They will cast you aside as a liberal or deep state pawn. Fight them with the vote in November. Remember to register early in your state.
Those whataboutisms remind me of my childhood.
Mom: "You did [blank]? You know you're not allowed!"
Me: "Yeah, but what about my friend Dave? He does stuff like that all the time!"
Which inevitably ends in the "if he jumped off a bridge then would you too?" omni-answer.
I read the comments here (I'm a right winger Trump supporter) or as you might call me, a nazi white privileged fascist inbred racist but I have a legit question and I'm seeking OPEN discussion. These comments are a bunch of obvious democrats who are talking like there is proof. This comedian is literally just making funny spin offs of what CNN has been calling Russian Collusion and you are all saying these are facts. Then the people who are saying they are facts are saying the other side (right wing/fox news) doesn't have facts because you (democrats/left leaning) have the facts. So seriously, where the fuck are the facts? Someone, please enlighten me. I know youtube is the worst place for serious political discussion but I'm giving it a shot. Give me your wisdom. I'm honestly curious. "Blue pill me"
Hey! thank you for your response. I guess I'm confused about the fact checking part. Like, how do I know if it's a fact. I'm 29 years old and I haven't trusted any source of media for the majority of my adult life. You are completely right about party loyalty. I like that term. People literally just vote dem or con because that's what they've always voted. Even if they didn't know who they were voting for. My uncle ran for judge in my city and he was competing against a 35 year sitting judge. The republican party sent out pamphlets prior to the election suggesting who to vote for, like voters can't figure it out for themselves. That's scary.
It seems it would be a lot of time-consuming research to answer accurately: sourcing from multiple outlets starting at Fox, CNN, HBO, BBC, and the Washington Post (fact checking each), and moving down from there through a pyramid of resources is a good start.
It's great to be open to discussion and the solution is going to be a bipartisan agreement. Party loyalty has been divisive, and voting for the ideas one represents is more important than choosing a side....
What I'm attempting to say after rambling is you'll find better answers on a discussion board dedicated to political activity than YouTube comment sections - but someone more in touch could hopefully link you to a good one
In Sock Slider's defense, I work at a pharmacy with a medical equipment section, and we sell something like that.
Remember, Hannity mostly has old people watching his show, and those are the kind of people who will need help getting their socks on, because they can't bend well enough to do it.
I'm not saying it isn't inherently funny, but it does make sense for him to be advertising that.
Trump lies? Well, duh! He is a politician. All politicians lie 100% of the time. Trump lies 100% of the time. Hillary lies 100% of the time. Bernie lies 100% of the time. Cruz lies 100% of the time. Sessions lies 100% of the time. Political commentators lie 100% of the time. Leno lies 100% of the time. Letterman lies 100% of the time. Oliver lies 100% of the time. CBS lies 100% of the time. Fox lies 100% of the time. ABC lies 100% of the time. NBC lies 100% of the time. HBO lies 100% of the time. Everybody in politics and advertising lie 100% of the time. Anybody who believes a single thing these people say is a fool.
Did Americans really vote Trump to President, or is this some dark power experiment to destabilize the whole world? The US population cannot be this stupid / degenerate to allow Trump to represent them? Or are they?
because the greatest corruption is within our own nation...where did snowden run? you call russia's government hostile...but is it? or did they help undermine the evil shadow government that would have put hillary in power..
i'm worried that Trump could go on national TV, state unequivocally that he is absolutely guilty, and explain in great detail how he did it, and yet Hannity and the others would *still* find some bullshit way to frame it as a "witch hunt"
Fun Fact: Donald Trump is not the first president to fail at draining a swamp.
In the year 1763, George Washington, along with other prominent Virginians and North Carolinians, formed a company called the Adventurers for Draining the Great Dismal Swamp, which attempted to drain the Great Dismal Swamp located in parts of Virginia and North Carolina to use the land for farming, as well as harvest the trees in the area for lumber. They spent $20,000—which I presume equates to a heck of a lot of money in terms of US dollars at their current value—on 40,000 acres of swamp land. Eventually, the company gave up on draining the swamp as they realized that the task was too daunting to be completed, so they instead chose to focus on harvesting the trees.
The more you know.
Yes, you want to fully and thoroughly investigate if a foreign country interfered with a presidential election. I think the Mueller investigation would be helped if they formally declared what they think Russia did. Did they buy facebook ads and other social media ads or create fake accounts? A foreign government purchasing advertisements is a problem. It violates campaign finance laws. These laws are already serious flawed and desperately need revision. I assume facebook & others have records on who purchased political ads. However the main campaign finance violation by Trump appears to be the payment to Stormy Daniels. Did Trump Jr. have a meeting with Russian for possible dirt on Hilary? Yes, Trump Jr. inadvertently admitted that. The Trump campaign should have reported the contact to the FBI. But is failure to report the contact influencing the election?
I dislike much of what Trump has done as president: grandstanding over the immigration and the idiotic border wall, starting trade wars with China and Europe, and a self proclaimed master negotiator giving comments that at least appear to support white supremacist. However, what exactly did Russia do to influence the election? Mostly it seems to be using social media to influence public opinion. This is troubling, but not a smoking gun like hacking ballot counts. Meddling in social media by foreign nationalities is probably commonplace. I suspect North Korea and China have done this, or if haven't are certainly going to start. What exactly are we proposing to do about it?
If everyone is ganging up on Trump, why is it a bad thing?
Isn't this a Democracy? If a majority of people don't want Trump, then that means he's undemocratic. Don't throw how he won the Presidential election, even then a majority of U.S. Citizens didn't want him as he lost the popular vote. If you are against the populace you are anti-democracy. It doesn't matter how "brainwashed" the populace is. The entire point of democracy is for them to choose. If the fail because of their choice, then let them fail.
