  1. u should you know… what we have said, and stand by our continued statements… #Treason mass murders… mass media matters…. no more Foxconn silly-ness both in China and America…

  2. how about Fox actually worry about what is happening in the world… not to worry about cronies like trump and his hosts on fox… FCC get your act together… trumps media are braqinwashing people into killing each other

  3. Traitor Trump is one of the most evil human I've seen in my 67 years on this planet!!! His election as President of our country will be a scar on our nation forever!! More over, Moscow Mitch and weasel Linsey Graham and all of Trump's puppets, will pay one day for selling their souls to the Devil!!!!

  4. LOCK UP TRAITOR TRUMP AND MOSCOW MITCH, THEY ARE BANKRUPTING OUR COUNTRY BY BLOWING UP THE DEBT, BOYCOTT FAKE FOX NEWS AND SPONSORS LIKE WELLS FARGO, TRIVAGO, BOWFLEX, USAA

  5. Image, ratings, chaos, gossip, chatter, disputes, drama, coining nonsense terms, name-calling, whirling helicopter motors, shouting, grimacing, mugging 4 limp laughs, basking in ill-will chants…this is our president.

  6. The left has no good policies so all they do is attack the president all day. Its sad that people watch this network and think they are watching real news. It’s nothing more than Democratic propaganda. Without the constant lies from the MSM and ignorance of the American people the Democratic party would have no supporters. Sad.

  7. Why not show the tweets ? They're straight from the source, they're facts and will be hard for you to tweak …and leave the dissecting to us

  8. Republicans: "He's not racist. You are for saying he is! He's not saying other races are inferior!"…Me: Oh, ok…that's like saying, "He's not talking about the sun when he says: 'It's hot, It's yellow, it's where you don't want to fly into when in space, It makes plants create photosynthesis, white people use it to turn brown, and some people use it to generate power. But I didn't say the word 'sun'! You are accusing me of talking about the sun! That means you are talking about the sun!'"

  9. 6:48 "Leadership involves taking responsibility". That's still true, albeit slightly morphed from yesteryear. Today, it seems, a leader is responsible for assigning blame rather than taking the heat.

  10. Here’s another conspiracy theory…How do we know that Epstein is REALLY DEAD? He could have been drugged to simulate death and whisked out of the country to go get plastic surgery to alter his looks. A court should have his assets frozen just in case…

  11. The left and its dishonest truths! "Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth"! Is a lesson the demorats left has mastered to perfection. They laugh at the gallable their voters are!

  12. It's way too late for Trump to apologize for all of the evil and loss of life that his abuse of power and dereliction of duty have caused.

    He is not Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus.. TRUMP is being led, if not totally possessed, by the EVIL SPIRIT.

    The anti-President is destroying our government. Cast him and his followers OUT !

    On earth as it is in heaven ..
    In God we Trust

  13. I used to live in a place where reading the news backward would let me know what was really happening. So if the headlines read “no meat shortage in July” then I would know that, in July, there would be a meat shortage. Time to stock up on cans of tuna fish.
    I never thought the U.S. would suffer from the same phenomenon. I read Trump backward now “I didn’t know Epstein well” becomes ‘Epstein was my best pal’. Try it! It works.

  14. The Clinton's did it……. come on donny, you and Epstein were pal's with the young girls.
    Remember donny video don't lie.

  15. Donald Trump Is it Alex Jones fan There’s nothing more to say that both racist homophobic xenophobic freaks🤪

  16. Wish we would stop giving credit to the cons, who have been doing this for decades, screw sorry, screw empathy, screw feeling ashamed in these people, if you want to call them that, it's simple, been getting by with the abuses of children, women, and men of all over, can harm people and make money off the same people in so many ways, no confusion to it, figure it out, "do the math" =money made from abusing people, all over, come on

  17. Why are we worried about what trump said? The focus should be on the victims of Epstein and the people that worked and visited that island , they should all be arrested questioned and ask bill wtf is going on while your at it

  18. Holy smokes Ari. You are a journalist and you are only just now seeing the light?
    Trumps methods of media manipulation is based upon a typical propagandist formula. This was made clear by his birther campaign. Since then it has been an endless cycle of repetition. Wake up son.

  19. Isn't this one of the things Trump admires in Kim Jong Un? Having people who could damage his position bumped off in prison?

  20. trump and Epstein raping that 13 yr old girl together, let's not forget that fact. Not surprised trump had Epstein put out of the equation.

  21. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  22. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  23. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  24. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  25. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  26. No Problems here, Epstein Dead. Names Named Time for Executive Order 13818 of December 20, 2017 signed by TRUMP

  27. Trump is in charge of the system that incarcerated Epstein. With that being the case it is quite possible that he is responsible for the death of Epstein who no doubt had the power to derail this bid for the WH, especially if he would have sought to try and pardon him while in custody. Trump is a Pedophile and most of the women who are bringing accusations against Epstein were underage teens – which is Trump's preference and without a doubt used!

  28. Bottom line: Trump and Barr are in charge of the country and the justice system, respectively. Epstein's suicide happened after he was put on suicide watch and the responsibility falls directly on Trump and Barr. This is all Trump and Barr. If anything, maybe they wanted Epstein to commit suicide because Epstein may have known a lot more about Trump than Trump wanted the world to know.

  29. Virginia Roberts on page 110 of her autobiography states she saw Clinton on his island with 2 young girls without Hillary and he was being cheeky. It is not outside of the realm of possibility that he was killed, this is mainstream reporting.

  30. AG Barr jumped the gun and said it was a suicide BEFORE it was even investigated or an autopsy was completed. Trump is a legend in his own crazy mind.

  31. bonespurs used the money that was suppose to make sure the prisons are staffed for himself. BONESPURS IS USING THE EXTRA MONEY TO PLAY GOLF.

  32. What a true joke this news channel is.
    Talking about deflection, propaganda, and conspiracy theories!

    Oh how we are all seeing you.
    Every day
    Every chance you get.
    The pretense is revealed.
    …matter of time.

  33. Pravda propagandists at MSNBC understand the use of repetitive lies:
    • Trump-Russia
    • White-Nationalist
    • Trump-is-racist

  34. Trump and Barr are responsible for the death of Jeffery Epstein as he was under their protection not questionable suicide.

  35. Fact check this. Mostly Lies! Run – don't walk away from the Democratic Propaganda Machine. Get the truth and Support Trump 2020!

  36. Did you see the body, did you see the autopsy of Epstein? what make you think it wasn't a double of Jeffrey Epstein, after all he did have a lot of money and butt buddies in higher up places, right Trump?

  37. Eugene I don't think it was 'A SCREW UP' Epstein knew to much. Never underestimate Trump's connections and how deeply they have penetrated our systems.

  38. The only difference between Hitler and Trump is Hitler at least was in a war and was a lot smarter. This is why I cannot understand Trump supporters. Hitler was a gifted speaker and could sway people. Otherwise, morally they are one and the same. Same hate filled souls.

  39. The photo of Epstein being taken to the hospital is actually a picture of Anthony Bourdain…look it up and compare. Same ear canal, hair line and nose.

  40. As of August 11 the Washington Post Fact Checker has cataloged 12,091 times Trumpo The Aryan Clown has lied to the American people since taking office.
    Watch: CNN anchor list the baseless conspiracies Trump has pushed.

  41. I think trump knows if he isn't re-elected he goes to prison so he is willing to say anything to make re-election possible

  42. To expect Barr to express shame would be asking for the moon. The man has so consistently and repeatedly done shameless things that one can expect with certainity more of the same in future and not the opposite.

  43. Has anyone noticed that when anything happens that might reflect on Trump,
    He is very quick and usually ahead of the news, to deflect and blame someone
    else. This is called a " tell ". And usually he is somehow
    involved !!!

  44. FAKE LYING NEWS WHY ATENT U SHOWING THE PICTURES OF BILL CLINTON HIS BEST FRIEND EPSTEIN WHOS BEEN TO EPSTEIN ISLAND 26 TIMES WHY BECAUSE YOU THINK U CAN HIDE BILLY BOY,WHERES THE VIDEO OF OBAMA AND EPSTEIN IN A BOAT GOING TO EPSTEIN ISLAND WITH A CHILD ON BOARD WITH OBAMA HOLDING THE CHILDS HEAD DOWN WHILE EPSTEIN IS ZIPPING UP HIS PANTS OR ZIPPING DOWN HIS PANTS,YAH U WON'T SHOW THOSE WILL U FAKE LYING ARI,BUT ITS ALL GOING TO COME OUT PERIOD.MANY POLITICIANS, MSMEDIA LIARS, HOLLYWOOD STARS,BILL MAHR, RACHEL CHANDLER THE CHILD HANDLER O,PRINCE ANDREW, OBAMA, NADLER, SCHIFF AND HIS STANDARD HOTEL ,AND ITS NOT A CONSPIRACY THEORY BECAUSE FLYNN KNOWS WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED MISS CROOKED HILARY SO STOP LYING FAKE NEWS ARI SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT STUPID.SUCH CORRUPT LYING FAKE NEWS AND NO WONDER SEALED INDICTMENTS ARE COMING.TRUMP AND Q HAVE OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND SEALED INDICTMENTS COMING FOR MANY PEOPLE

  45. I've been in many, many jail cells. Turnkeys KNOW about suicide. JAILS are pretty much careful (in design) to make doing 'suicide' a difficult hill to mount.

  46. Donald, don't you know that pointing your little finger at someone, means 3 others are pointing back directly to YOU?

  47. And trump was number 1 in that little black book ! But wants to hide it because he knows he would be on the hook !

  48. I have my own theory. Trump had something to do it & Barr is wanting to protect him. Can't we get rid of Barr? Barr is responsible we all know that it's due diligence.

  49. Oh another thing, Barr twisted the Mueller report & he's doing the same now. He won't even get near Trump when investigating this sad state of affairs because he's made it clear the president shouldn't be investigated. Remember that's why Trump hired him. Now, let's get them both out!!! For the sake of the country.

  50. To say that anyone in this administration should admit that they screwed up (they did and continue to do so) and they should apologize for it is giving them too much credit. That is what we would expect from reputable people, people with morals and are ethical. This administration is completely devoid of any aspect of humanity that most of us would make an attempt to emulate. And then they hire people who share that void. The bottom line is that these people are soulless things and are inherently evil.

  51. Barr should NOT be investigating anything that he was a part of, covering up for Trump! In fact the FBI should be investigating him along with Trump.
