  1. Why is absolutely nobody talking about the huge amount of irony, in Trump, or anyone else, suggesting we should have armed churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, etc?
    Aren't they supposed to be houses of worship? Their god's temple? If his followers can't even go to their churches to worship their god, what use is he? What use is there in even going there? It's a joke.

    Of course, I know the real reason why these atrocities happen. No one is protecting them. At least nothing divine.

  11. "Amazing grace, how sweet the song that saved a wretch like me…", I remember Obama leading that song with some high profile religious leaders, i wonder if Trump could sing that song and feels empathy in his heart.

  12. Along with Rachel Maddow, this is the reason why The Last Word is a nightly favorite, as always well said Lawrence 👏🏽👏🏽.

  13. Your not Hebrew , Even ISRAEL knows you took over to STEAL , You are OTTOMAN TURKS / ASHKENAZI …All Religions are ARAB set UPS in Society !!!

  14. by the definition of terrorists isn't the shooter is one as he checks all boxes yet i never heard them mention him like one. btw i am neither a Muslim or a christian

  15. Trump is a deluded dangerous old white man stuck in the 1950's. Go back to Reality TV with the rest of your freaks… Leave the real business to people with brains and heart…

  16. What is the right wing calling for exactly? For us to live our lives like we are under some kind of military occupation with armed guards at schools, churches, supermarkets, shopping malls, movie theaters, etc?

  17. There is much more than enough that all people have witnessed from this POS and why he cannot comply with a simple request, not to come during the burials, is beyond comprehension, but so is he. He needs, immediately , to be removed before so much more devastation call come about. trumpturd, You are NOT WELCOME HERE, OR ANYWHERE AT THIS TIME OR ANY OTHER TIME.

  18. #PittsburghMassacre / #HateCrime #DomesticTerrorism:

    No greeters for #Trumps #AirForceOne; nor for the #InstigatorInChief, himself. It matters little that he feigns grief and compassion, for the #carnage that he incited; and caused.

    #EvilIsAsEvilDoes; and a vote for #Tennessees #Blackburn is a vote for #Evil Trump. The devil is a liar, you know!

  19. Donald Trump's Grand-Pappy was a whoremonger.. literally. Obviously he's inherited that DNA for conning people into believing he's a righteous man

  20. How much worse do these followers of Trump want America to get in the mutual relations of all her Citizens before they realize the Nation is being 'rent asunder' to the delight of her arch enemy, Russia? Putin couldn't be any happier for all the massive cloud of hate the American Society is infused with by Trump. Putin's Russia has already achieved so much of her goal to avenge America, through Trump, a huge victory, that the former KGB guru could never have dreamed of achieving on the battlefield against America. It had always been Putin's aim to avenge the dissolution of the Soviet Empire that he blames America for orchestrating with Gorbachev. And, all it took was a willing, gullible, bankrupt American Real Estate Entrepreneur and President-wannabe and a few Cyber hackers to deal the killer blow.

  21. I wonder what it would be like to have a president who traveled around trying to make the world a better place on the taxpayers dime instead of campaigning? If the Republicans do lose it'll be from all the younger generation that got sick of all the school shootings in the last 2 years and demanded change and got nothing but a bill for a wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for and a trumped up tax cut for the rich

  22. Trump…what do you not understand about normalChristians not making sure they have their guns before they head out for church. I know you were raised Presbyterian…so was I..but never, ever was I told to remember to take my gun along! Never!

  23. The "Republican" President's way: rile up the BASE, the lowest of the low, and commit voter SUPPRESSION so that he will win, but not by much.

  24. To suggest armed guards at a place of worship is ludicrous! Why can tRump respect the dead? Why can't he keep his nasty mouth shut?

  25. MSNBC is dividing the country even more! After 9/11 president Bush went to Manhattan, where I’m sure he did not initially have so many supporters as NYC always votes democrat! Yet, President Bush was welcome and lifted the spirits of so many New Yorkers. President bush was even honored to throw the first pitch at Yankees Stadium for the World Series in 2001! Stop politicizing tragedy!

  26. I say we just ignore Trump and his people for a few days and really watch how far he goes for attention. I believe that for all his crying about the. "Fake news" he couldn't live even a day of being ignored.

  27. I always understood that Trump was too thinned skinned for public service. When it becam cler his skin is egg shell then I took to alling him Trumpty dumpty. Really sad he had to iject himself when when he was unwanted instead of waiting until he would have been welcome polity by the powers that be at that synagogue, in that city. He is a person who has never grown up despite his age.

  28. THE BALLOT HAS BLANKS FOR A REASON, YES? FILL THIS BLANK IN FOR WHO UNDERSTANDS AND WILL WATCH OUT FOR US AMERICANS.

  29. words matters especially from the President ,a crazy person might take his words for it and carry out the killing in Pittsburgh .R.I.P.

  30. PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE? NO EDUCATION WILL TEACH YOU RIGHT FROM WRONG. THIS IS YOUR CHOICE. DO IT. VOTE FOR ME ON THE BLANK SPACE WHERE YOU ARE AT THE DISABLING STRESSERS POINT. THESE BLANKS ARE ON THE VOTER'S BALLOT. LEARN YOU HAVE A CHOICE. RESET THE MOTION AND QUASH THE OPPRESSOR.

  31. HOWEVER, SHALL YOU CHOSE TO NOT REVOLT THEN STAY POOR, SICK, HUNGRY WATCHING THIS B S. IT IS A VERSION LADENED WITH RED HERRINGS, ETC… ETHICS DIED WITH PLATO.

  32. NOW ATTEND CHURCH, SYNAGOGUES, MOSHKES, AND LEARN WE NEVER ARE GOING TO GET A FAIR SHAKE. I'D RATHER STARVE, BE KILLED, HANG IN FRONT OF RAGING HUNGRY ANIMALS THAT WILL FEED UPON MY CARCASS AND DIE INDEED THAN FEED THE HUNGRY GREED OF PUBLICITY, RELIGIOUS DOGMATISM, AND POLITICS OF BLOODY HANDS GRUBBING FOR ANOTHER MAN'S SLAVE LABOR AS HUMAN CAPITAL. FAIR? UNFAIR? DIRE, DESPERATE, AND DEADLY MENTAL STRESSORS OF MENTAL PHILOSOPHY OF A DSM AND MEDICINES WHICH STUPOR UNRELENTLESSLY OUR YOUTH, INFANTS, AND US IN GENERAL. MOST, 99% ARE MENTALLY STABLE WITHOUT TECHNOLOGY AND PSYCHOTROPICS. IMHO GIVE ME THE REAL THING OR NOTHING AT ALL, BUT AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE SOMEBODY CARES IF I EXIST OR NOT IS A PUNISHMENT UNDESERVING HUMANITY. IF HUNGRY FEED ME, IF NASTY BATHE ME, IF VULGAR TEACH ME. IS THIS TOO MUCH TO ASK? GOOD SAMARITAN… YEAH, EVEN TODAY. TURN DOWN THE TECH AND EMBRACE REALITY. LET THE DOGS AND PIGS EAT MY BLOODY CARCASS FOR THEIR INJOYMENT THAN LET ME LIVE AS IF I NEVER MATTER OR WERE USED TO MAKE YOU THIS.

  37. Something to think about: White Supremacism = ZERO wealth & power. Muslim Supremacism = ZERO wealth & power. But JEWISH Supremacism = Enormous wealth & power. So just which group is the real problem in America today and who are you not allowed to criticize lest you be labeled an Anti-Semite and lose your job?….

  38. Lawrence I don't know you but the way you present your case of concern, the concern of common people of General People of USA are outstanding. Please don't consider me invader as I am at my age of 52 as the President of USA emphasizes. But my question is isn't USA a country of migrants? Migrants made USA great, Migrants contributes to the security of USA. Can majority of USA people that they are aborigines of USA? Why you are trusting lies all the time. Lies at this extent would call doomsday for you even your your existence in any place of the world.

  40. More guns always the answer from the right and Trump holds no responsibility for his words/actions. Todays Republican party needs to be gone.

  41. People don’t get it. Frankentrump was raised by a member of the KKK. He takes pride when ugly people take his words to heart and slaughter his enemies. Anti Semitism was such an issue in his family that his older brother Frank , who was a good man that renewed against their fathers bigotry, rebelled against his father by joining a Jewish Fraternity in college. Trump takes pride in these fuckwads acting out on what he considers is his command.

  42. trump has failed you.

    “This world of ours… must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. “

    ——Dwight D. Eisenhower

  43. This is what this is all about, a self-imposed dictator speaking to a Radical Right Wing, Most Republican realize that the extreme right is Fascism or police controlled state! When the president speaks to an already troubled people and energizes that base problems are going to occur! There have always been problems within our country, but when the President condones such action, it like giving them the OK, to carry out violent acts!

  44. Adam is wishing that trump cares about Jews. Sorry, guy he doesn't. None of what Adam says Trump has does not matter…be it son-in-law or grand kids. He only embraces Jared because of Ivanka. He does not care. He does not care. He does not care. He does not care. Is it so hard to see?

  45. I am really sick of Trump's Jewish credentials being touted all the time because of his daughter's family.
    Having family members of a different race or culture does not make you more sympathetic or understanding towards that race or culture.
    I've known people who make racist comments about Asians while standing next to their own Asian or half Asian relatives.
    And when you point that out to them – they don't care. They have somehow managed to compartmentalise their family into a different box from the Asians they hate.

  46. 🙏🙏 ble wave in both House n Senate 🌊🌊 then we can impeach this racist neo nazi JErk!!!! 👍👊🇺🇸🌈

  47. There are 493,000 Jewish people in the greater Pittsburgh area. Of that 426 are leaders. Out of that, 11 of them don't like Trump, and write a letter. The Rabbi of the Synagogue and congregation welcomed Trump, and the First Lady. They laid whit roses and white stones in front of the markers of the fallen outside of the Synagogue. MSN is silent on that. Meanwhile, a woman preacher screams that she doesn't like Trump in Pittsburgh, with about 10 of her followres, and MSN jumps on that. Go Figure.

  48. This guy has no empathy for any of the people of Pittsburgh PA. He's the worst president we've ever had! No clue how to be presidential.

  49. If we just spend a a few billion dollars on guns everything will be fixed? Is that what our president said? That is what I heard.

  50. I can't believe this is happening in the US, a country so deeply embedded in many societies of the world is now being run by a lunatic. I'm saddened about the state of the United States and how a once proud and free country has fallen into such racism and hate. The US stood for something and it's about freedom, the freedom that freed slavery, the freedom of immigrants escaping poverty, cruelty and death. The US stood for the freedom of individuals to further their education for the good of humanity and to contribute to society. There are many things why most immigrants find the United States Of America as top on their agenda to settle in. Many of these immigrants grow roots in the US to help build the economy to further the aspirations of a nation and to bring support to their family and fellow citizens. Immigrants aren't demons or invaders they help build a nation and contribute to diversity and with diversity brings talents and new ways of developing ideas. There many other places in the world that have these qualities but most choose the US as their hopes to fulfill a dream. This dream have been sought by many who now call the United States as their country forgetting their true roots. Thanksgiving Day is about just this, but many think that Columbus was the first to discover the Americas, it isn't true and many has already gone before. Also Native Americans have inhabited these lands both the US and Canada but has been labeled a minority by some. The fact of the matter is we are all immigrants to this land and no one person can truly say they aren't an immigrant, unless you are a Native American who have every right to deserve that designation.

  51. I get that trump is the wannabe big boss man but if media were to completely ignore him by not giving him any air time, collectively, that would be a great torture to him. Just desserts. I know its a pipe dream but it is fun to think about.

  52. There is an English city called Kingston Upon Hull, more commonly known as Hull, a city famous for William Wilberforce, who was instrumental in the campaign to end slavery within the British Empire, and also famous for something else: Historically it once closed its gates and refused entry to the King of England.

    Sounds to me like Pittsburgh should have done the same thing to Donald Trump, a man who is pathologically incapable of empathy for his own citizens, stirs up unnecessary dissent between citizens, patronises racists and bigots, seeks to rule as a tyrant who believes laws and the constitution and common decency don't apply to him, has destroyed the moral standing of the USA within the world community, sucks up to dictators and criticises allies, is entirely focused on himself and his own aggrandisement at what ever cost to anyone else, and is thereby undeserving of his position as president.

  53. Read an excerpt now. In "America! Fight Back! The Foundation For A Better
    Country!" (found on Amazon or Barnes&Nobles websites) the solutions
    are here for the implementation.

  54. The moron said if they have a gunman guarding the synagogue , the killer could have been succumed, maybe he should be the gunman guard, period
