  1. Biden shouldn't worry if he has nothing to hide like Clinton and her emails. Problem is their isn't a centerist out there without some dirt that can't be uncovered with today's money.

  2. For the love of money.
    THE PEOPLE money is getting all the criminal high.
    Put trump in jail for all the crimes, which he has done against America.
    Trump still crying for help against America, oh Russia, Russia, I need your help against another white man.
    Can you help the cry baby in the WH?

  3. Rachel – I like you. And I respect many of the journalists at MSNBC. But I have to ask this: all of the hours, the labor, the research, the MONEY, the commercials… the frustration and all of the hours that your regular viewers put in watching programs like this… over the PAST THREE YEARS… what has it accomplished? We're more educated? I guess so. But King Truthie is still President of the Divided States of America, he's still doing damage, "turning over tables," lying, accumulating wealth and such and despite losing so much of his administration, he's still married to Melania and has TENS of MILLIONS of supporters and it looks like he's got a shot at winning the next election (with or w/o the help of Russia).

  4. THIS IS TRUMP,S REWARD FOR GIVING THE MILITARY AN ADDITIONAL 760 MILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDING.
    THE FACT THAT IT IS TAXPAYER MONEY,NOT HIS,IS INCONSEQENTIAL.

  5. nitwit trump base how is trump stealing money from the military to finance his failing businesses and once again favoring russian interests OK ? why are u turning your back on this country and backing trump the traitor ?

  6. Somebody please get Jim Mattis in studio and ask him how this happened under his watch as Secretary of Defense. FN ridiculous

  7. If this is true and sourced this is disgusting and should not be allowed. Wake up please this is not normal… The country will be bankrupt and all you Trump fans will pay (as well as those who are not fans) please wake up…

  8. Impeach Trump!
    He's defunding the troops that we support to build a wall that we don't support.
    He's helping Russia by hurting Ukraine Military aid and funding so they can't resist Russia.

    He is an absolute threat to America.

  9. You can't put anything pass this President, If he does not win, were talking jail and/or TREASON. He is getting more and more desperate. Put your self in his shoes, you would do the same thing.

  10. this is how trump came to power at least as outlined in the Mueller report – Israel said it would 'help' trump win so he could remove the Russian sanctions and then Russia promised if the sanctions were removed it would vote favorably to Israel at the UN in regards to the illegal settlements – in the end Egypt withdrew it's resolution after submitting it – who knows what they got in return. All in all – once again it seems Israel was at the center, which is why we will never be released from this- the American government simply lets Israel do anything it wants including taking over America. in my opinion

  11. It is HILARIOUS to me that tRump's supporters actually believe he is "draining the swamp". His administration IS the swamp! He made the swamp worse!

  12. Most military people, like John Kelly,
    dont care what donald T. RUMP does to them because they love him like an Oracle and he could say "the sky black and white polka dot" and they would simply commence to frivolously proving that the stars in the sky cam be considered white polka dots.

  13. https://thepoliticalinsider.com/one-america-news-network-sues-msnbcs-rachel-maddow-for-10-million/?utm_campaign=TPI09092019BR2&utm_source=criticalimpact&utm_medium=email&utm_content=956f50fa62275b7da6473c7b9fa19141&source=CI

  14. Build the Canada Wall, trump will use military money. So sad how far americants are letting the fool go….PS-tell trump Canada loves and misses Obama…..where's our wall? If mexico gets a wall on tax payer money, we want a wall too.

  15. fRump sez: Putin told me he's done nothing wrong, and I believe him. Don't listen to our Intel people, they are not to be trusted! America first means Russia firster!

  16. The military must be so happy to get a free round of golf.
    I mean.. they may only stay there for 4 to 5 hours, but at least they can enjoy some golf.

  17. OMG why is this so hard to impeach him to see what Asset Aiding he does to russian OCCUPATIONIST. Europe never will have peace !

  18. Lot of lambs in the government,it would be a good time to put a lot of traitors behind bars before the damage is too great.Maybe it is time the armed services stepped in to do it,bring back what has been taken away from the American people and the world.

  19. The US Air Force is hosted by RAF Lakenheath (48th Fighter Wing), about an hours flight from Glasgow. There is absolutely no practical reason for the plane to stop at Glasgow.

  20. Trump is just the vehicle, the End Of Days Evangelical GOP has been waiting for this for decades.

    He'll be tossed once all unloyal judges are purged, and a complete white ethnostate has been established.

    American aparthied in the name of Jesus

  21. Omg this fool will win in 2020 because he has Russia backing him and cheating for him and then he will really do stuff and not care. This is Hitler level crap and Nancy is too chicken to impeach him. He has probably got russia threatening all of them and their families. Dark days folks smh

  22. how much darkness and illegality (emollients clause is law and he is breaking it out in the open…if nothing else sticks) is it going to take before the democrats do something NOW? taking money from the military?????? i just want to throw up…

  23. I wonder if those authorities in Scotland are now regretting what Trumputin paid them to sell out their own countrymen. Money already spent? Poor babies. No MORE bribe money, and soon no income from the craptastic golf course.

  24. A question NO ONE seems to want to ask is: Exactly how much of the 'Wall Money' that's being ripped out of everywhere else, is paying for the wall? And where is the rest of the money going? First he asked for 3 Billion. This quickly became 10B, then 57B and God knows what it's being charged at now – nothing, not one thing about that long black fence is ever going to cost that much money. It will have a definite fixed cost BUT that would never be shooting roof-wards in the way he is saying it is.
    Simple equation: Longtime conman and bankrupt who tells a LOT of lies + Ridiculous unlimited project which is being estimated in billions by that conman and bankrupt =????
    We're being conned bigtime people. Demand to know what its really costing

  25. Maddow low IQ viewers dumbed down do the research history of Democrats founders of slavery KKK Jim Crow planed parenthood 30 million black babies killed who listens to this shill low IQ people

  26. Benedict Arnold at it again.It's because Bolton refused to stay at the Trump Turncoat property in Scotland on a fake layover just so Trump could continue bilking government resources to save his belly up property.

  27. Rachel Maddow, your name was used in an episode of Timeless. It was during the 1950 Korean war. Your name was used as a war corespondent who got lost from the group. Season 2 episode 12 @ 7 min and 42 seconds in.

  28. If Russia, Ukraine or anyone else has dirt on Joe Biden then we should receive it, report it verify it and accept it (grovel with it).

  29. Conservative Network One America News Network (OANN) has filed a $10multi million defamation lawsuit
    against the liberal, anti-American 46 years old, and mediocre, so-called
    commentator Rachel MADDOW, Comcast Corporation, NBC Universal and MSNBC in a California federal court,
    claiming this commentator “maliciously and recklessly” smeared the network as a
    Russian state propaganda outlet. The lawsuit tracks a series of longstanding
    grievances between OANN and Comcast, which Comcast refused to carry the right-wing
    network because OANN “counters the liberal politics of its own channel, MSNBC.”
    One week after that, OANN’s founder Charles Herring sent an open
    email to Comcast deriding their alleged “anti-competitive censorship.” Particularly
    at issue is Maddow's claim that OANN is “really literally is paid Russian
    propaganda.” OANN is claiming that the corporate entities and MADDOW knew the
    statement was false and maliciously when issuing the statement.

  30. Hundreds of thousands U.S.
    have reacted outraged against this mediocre indifferent so-called herself
    “commentator” who is using her obsessed hatred, insidiousness, evil and
    vileness to lied, slander, and attribute crimes to President Trump, his
    administration, its supporters, and even U.S. Citizens toward destroying the
    Republican Political Party and its supporters; therefore, this is on the
    hundreds of times that the mainstream media CNN, MSNBC affiliates and Rachel
    MADDOW have acted premeditated and wickedly have attacked to destroy U.S. and
    its Citizens using pre-fabricated lies to frame them, as Citizens Ron G. said:
    “MSNBC should have canned MADDOW long ago. All she ever does is attack citizens
    and the country! It is about time that the left leaning media is called out for
    their one sided reporting and in many cases flat out lies;” opinion which is
    corroborated by Citizen Melmark1 who stated: “NBC should be canned, then
    crushed and recycled into a REAL news station.”

  31. Thousands of U.S. Citizens are
    pointing CNN, MSNBC, its affiliates mainstream media, and the so-called “commentator”
    Rachel MADDOW as members of a Terrorist Organization because their insane
    obsession to destroy President Trump, its administration, U.S. and its
    Citizens, as Citizen NoComZone said: “MSNBC and others are known terrorist organization.
    They should be out law as such by the DOJ,” while Citizen Askjrskid said:  “This broadcaster and its employers have
    damaged our nation with their reckless, irresponsible reporting of made up
    news. The evening she illegally broadcast President Trump’s tax returns she
    should have been locked up. President Trump please sues these shams of news
    reporters. They are worse at gossiping than an old lady’s sewing circle with
    loose lips and absolutely no accountability.”

  32. Other hundreds of thousands U.S.
    Citizens are incredulous of “commentator” Rachel MADDOW real identity and
    gender, as Citizen Ralph Kramden said: “Fire Maddow. She is ugly, fat, stupid,
    a mental case, vicious, lies constantly, and is definitely NOT a reporter. Red
    flags her mangy face too. She is a danger to herself, others and all Americans,”

    Comment extended by Citizens Mathew Molk who said: “She? You have any verification of that? From the way it looks
    it could be just about anything. Again, let's verify it is a "she".
    Don't want to be spreading fake news ourselves. – Mad cow could be just about
    anything,” while Citizen DrBarbara states: “I forget how many genders the loony
    liberals have now? About 75?” Citizen R1055 is more direct and said: “Rachel
    MADDOW is a member of the protected class of homosexuals OBAMA helped initiate
    into our society. Seems there are a lot of these "protected" people
    in the Media and in our congress, you know, people like Adam Schiff, Smallest, Don Lemon, Cooper, and Shep Smith.”

  33. Why bother? Biden has no chance against trump and most American People right or left know that. This narrative is counterproductive for the interests of American People

  34. Irrelevant. PRESIDENT TRUMP will easily be RE ELECTED in 2020.🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲🙂🇺🇲

  35. What the democratic party and Biden's family having him run for president is just wrong. My mother has dementia and Mr Biden is where she was roughly 3 years ago. The guy should relax at this point in his life and enjoy the time he has left the disease is brutal. The thought of having Mr Biden on a debate stage against President Trump is tantamount to elder abuse. No matter how you feel about the president

  36. From Carter Reagan bush Clinton Obama Trump all just fronts for the Rich, corporations,and military complex,and infrastructure companies like bectel

  37. After initially fuelling political unrest in Ukraine, leading to the Eastern Ukraine war and Crimean takeover by Russia, subsequent US aid to Ukraine has largely been used to line the coffers of corrupt past president Poroshenko, who personally profited massively from sales of war equipment to his government at 10 times their market value. This is aid that has simply fed corruption and unrest in the past, so why continue it on the same level or basis? Indeed there is a valid case for external review of the corruption that any competent US officials involved would have been well aware of.

  38. Opposition Research is always done by both sides, but asking Ukraine to indulge in same? Well, now that's a horse of a different color.

  39. Shocking! The administration who welcome Russian interference is working with a foreign power to acquire information on a political adversary… why I he still not impeached?

  40. By using Trump's private sources, INCLUDING government sources, to EXTENSIVELY CHECK THE BACKGROUNDS OF OTHERS, I wonder if THIS PRESIDENT is blackmailing "some" Republicans to do his bidding . . . that is THREATENING them that the secrets of their nefarious personal past (possibly unethical or immoral, etc.) will be announced to the world.

    It is hard to believe that ALL OF THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS are WILLINGLY playing Renfield to Trump's Dracula.

  43. Her show is a waste of time…. literally the USAF has fueled at that stop many times. Also, apparently this Rhodes Scholar (in name only..cuz she is a shill) thinks that the story of Trump, Biden, and Ukraine is about the abuse of power of Trump instead of the abuse of power of Biden. THIS is what happens when the left are losing the political dialogue and starts throwing anything around to see what sticks. This is GARBAGE. Biden CLEARLY used the bully pulpit to get govt official fired. GUILTY!

  44. The woman that dresses like a witch everyday is not tell you about the video where Joe Biden is bragging about how he forced the president of Ukraine to fire the prosecutor investigating his son hunter in a billion dollar deal with Ukraine.

  46. The real fact is that the executive branch of the U.S. government is responsible for enforcing laws; its power is vested in the President. President Trump should be impeached only if he suspected that the Biden family participating in a corruption scheme in Ukraine and he did not request an investigation to prevent a political storm. However, the liberals have it backwards; the liberals and the news media are portraying President Trump as “seeking dirt on Biden” they don’t see it as President Trump fulfilling his constitutional duty to enforce the laws as requested by the laws of the nation.

    On the other hand, when a non-elected, unknown whistle blower says that President Trump is abusing the power he was entrusted to use for helping to enforce the law, the news media does not say that liberals are seeking dirt on Trump. It is not wonder that the same news media that applauds boys waking up thinking to be girls going into the girls’ bathroom are the same people that wish to deny President Trump his constitutional duty to make sure there is not corruption in government while giving powers to a non-elected, unknown official to be able to make illegal something that is requested by law from any US president.
