  1. Our RUSSIAN president
    Thinks trolling people
    Is how the country
    Earns him respect
    Only his inbreeder base
    Loves this
    Let's show him different
    On election day

  2. ALL YOU DEMOCRATS WE SEE YOU INVITING CENTRAL AMERICANS TO FLOOD AMERICA AND CEMENT THE REPLACEMENT OF STRAIGHT WHITE MEN BUT BE AWARE WE WILL FIGHT

  3. Democrats are at their all-time weakest from being no-minded. Democrats have turned brain dead. They've become the "Fredo" team.

  4. President Trump, it's going to pass into history as one of the strongest President in the history of America. He is not a politician and most Americans are not aware that he donates his salary, about time we have a President that his priority are Americans.

  5. The media makes the majority of Americans weaker. Look at the left for example. Everything offends them lol, they even think an inanimate object kills people.

  6. If people actually listen to this everything this woman a saying is strictly for women it's not for the country as a whole it's for women her beliefs on things that should change but all the policies need to change in favor for women

  7. Politicians are basically being BRIBED by the NRA. This should be outlawed. Otherwise this will truly be a government run by the corporations not the people

  8. Your hate is making you week and from england the biggest mistake america can do is take your guns criminals dont give up guns criminals take your self defance away what is wrong in putting a red hat on do you only work for womens rights or profit from womens rights do you work for black people or profit from black people why dont you say peoples rights shame on you sounds very racist snd very sexist to me.

  9. Gillibrand is as much a flip flopper as Chuckie the schmuck Schumer. But her poll numbers are hovering around 1% .

  10. Wealthy white Europeans don't want to come here. They have it way better where they are and just laugh at trump and his mobster gang.

  11. You Have The Nerves To Call SomeOne Small- Minded..
    iF You Had A Big Mind You Would Have Had Thousands oF Views and LIKEs…!
    ONe Million Puerto Ricans Para Donald J. Trump.!..2020.!

  12. To have one nut job, ruthless, greedy crook get elected through voting is not a big surprise. It's Congress who sits by and watches that's the real problem. Congress is making us weaker.

  13. No really? This is clear since 3 years. Until then I was convinced Americans aren´t more or less stupid than others because I had no idea about what´s going on there. Since I follow this disaster on US television and on here frequently it became crystal clear that Americans in general aren´t just as stupid former generations over here thought they were, it´s by far worse. It´s unbelievable and not possible to emphasize for me because this is far beyond anything I´m used to. I don´t even know where I should begin explaining. It feels actually more like an own, different species. No offending just the blatant, sad truth.

  14. MSNBC should be covering more of Russia and Hong Kong protests and police brutality. Those countries need the help of the U.S. media or the protesters could lose their fight for democracy.

  15. Gillibrand is a far left radical socialist! She spews hate, confusion and racism! She is an open border,
    give everything for free Democrat! She is an alpha female with issues!!!

  16. On the evidence from Sydney where good guys with a milk crate and a chair restrained a mentally ill killer with a knife, shouldn't the usa be calling for milk crates and chairs to be issued to all those good guys with guns and police officers?

  17. What this broad, Gillibrand, did to Al Franken was terrible. The only women who spoke out about Franken were republican party activists or pundits. It is a gop move to have women speak out about democrats they want to get rid of because they know the democrats will run around screaming and remove the person without proof.

  18. our 2nd amendment is not just for hunting…it is also to bear arms against a corrupt government who will deprive us of our rights

  19. Moscow Mitch's courage is directly correlated with his bank account! Thing about Moscow Mitch is there$ never enough!

  20. I'd feel a lot better about her had she not led the Charge against Al Franken and forced his resignation over relatively nothing. He and Liz Warren would be the dream ticket (in either order…).

  21. Alright, kirstengillibrand.com. You need 30,000 individual supporters to advance. I will check it out madam.

  22. Mitch McConnell complains privately that he sets up a vote and the Whitehouse bails for some leverage & chaos in the markets and he is flanked by Dems again and again. He refuses to do any work at all now in our Senate. The Dow Jones dropped 3% today, that is a marker for a worldwide recession. 10% is a correction & triggers market regs and equity tests, it's a thing, historically speaking. This week could be going better. The trade standoff with China is like a rust on the world machine.

  23. Hey here is an idea. What if, we pretend to set up a law on guns and they forget all about Russia? We take $30 million from the NRA so obviously nothing will happen, ofcourse.

  24. Kirsten G. is possibly the most radical of all the declared Socialists running (in her case, limping) for 2020.. (THAT is saying a LOT!)

    Progressive Socialists? Ever hear of Venezuela?

    1992 – Venezuela became the 3rd richest country in Western Hemisphere

    1997 – Venezuela was 2nd largest purchaser of F-150's from America

    2001 – Venezuela votes for Socialist President/Government due to "Income Inequality"

    2004 – Private healthcare is completely Socialized in Venezuela

    2007 – All higher education in Venezuela becomes "Free"

    2009 – Socialists ban private ownership of guns by citizens

    2012 – Bernie Sanders praises Venezuela's "American Dream"

    2014 – Opposition leaders are imprisoned

    2016 – Food/healthcare shortages become wide spread

    2017 – Constitution and elections are suspended

    2019 – Unarmed citizens massacred by Venezuelan government

    In ONE generation of Socialist ("Progressive?") leadership, Civil War.

  25. I don't see any stories about the black drug dealers shooting it out in Philadelphia from the vermin at MSNBC. Why is that, is it because they are blacks in a scumacrat run City ?. Either way law abiding gun owners will pay the price for a bunch of lowlifes Democrats side with. The poor black man, is only doing it because his ansestors were slaves.

  26. Joe Biden, backed by Wall Street with fundraisers at the home of Comcast. Sick of MSNBC & AT&T’s CNN’s blatant everyday PR campaign of their corporate sponsors, Joe "Hillary" Biden, with his Declining Cognitive State.

  27. If you ever had occasion to watch Yes Prime Minister you might remember when the head of the civil service Sir Humphrey would try to dissuade Hacker the PM from action he would sug
    gest such an act was courage’s. In saying this Hacker would realize it was rife with inherent risk. Suggesting to McConnell that gun control legislation requires courage is imbued with the likelihood that he’ll run like the scared cat he is.

  28. if the people are well off and can take care of themselves back in "The Old Country", they wouldn't have immigrated
    immigrants come here to BETTER themselves and their children

    IT TAKES A LOT OF WHITE PRIVILEGE TO STAND IN A COUNTRY OF STOLEN LAND AND COMPLAIN ABOUT IMMIGRATION

  29. What a fake person. The political left in America and the Chinese have the same goals for America. Break it up and destroy it.

  30. Look at how excessively Gillibrand blinks! It's a tell…poker players wear sunglasses b/c of this, but typically it signals lying, excitement, nervousness (or a combination thereof).
    She's fcking creepy.
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2589073/Liars-are-exposed-by-blinking.html

  31. She's not the dumbest in Congress as she's often said to be along with brainless AOC. Kristen is a corrupt pig

  32. The latest model of The Gillibrand 2.0 Robot to roll out of the factory is replete with:
    • Furrowed brow (for use with serious topic discussion)
    • Excessive blinking (more of a bug than a feature to be fixed in Gilly 2.1)
    • Miosis or Synthetic Pupil Constriction™ (SPC)

  33. With our huge national deficit you want to buy every assault weapons off the street so our national deficit can be worse than it already is. Politicians don't have a clue when it comes to spending within their means.

  34. Kirsten Gillibrand is AWESOME! I hope she continues further in the race – VERY CLEAR, INFORMED AND WORTHY OF THE OVAL OFFICE! Kirsten, if not now – DO NOT WORRY – you are young enough – 4 or 8 years from now you can STILL get the BIG SEAT!!! YOU WOULD BE EXCELLENT AS LEADER OF THE WORLD!!!

  35. Gillibrand thinks a total BAN on all semi autos even hand guns should be put in effect…and any AMERICAN that doesn't comply should be put in prison….so she's ready to put millions of AMERICANS in prison that have not committed any crime other than standing up for their 2A right should be imprisoned….let that sink in….

  36. HR8 would make it felony for a rancher to hand a rifle to a ranch hand who is a better shot to protect a calf from a predator without going to a gun shop, waiting days for a background check, temporarily transferring the rifle to take the shot, then returning to a gun shop to transfer the rifle back. That's just one of a bunch of problems for farmers, museums, rural families, and others. The media never reports what is in gun bills or asks why Congress just can't write simple bills. There are an average of 316 rifle homicides including the AR15 each year in a country of 329 million people plus around 78 million tourists and perhaps 11.4 million undocumented. If all rifle homicides were AR15's your chances of being killed by an AR15 are 1 in 1.3 million. Around the same as being electrocuted. 1,000 people are killed riding bikes every year in the US. Here is a video of a girl using old west guns to hit 25 targets in 10 seconds less than the Dayton shooter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsexKLYtCkI

  37. Gun Control is ANTI WOMAN'S RIGHTS — it prevents women from defending themselves. Historically, Gun Control began as a way to control African Americans.
    It doesn't take courage to defy the will of the majority of Americans. Criminals act contrary to our laws every day.

  38. Only in America are civilians allowed to walk the streets with loaded semiautomatic assault guns in peace time.

  39. 2nd AMMENDMENT ISNT FOR HUNTING! ITS TO GIVE THE PEOPLE THE SAME OR MORE ARMS THAN GOVERNMENT TO PREVENT TYRANNY! ALL GUN CONTROL IS ILLEGAL AND ALL WHO SUPPORT IT IS COMMITING TREASON WHICH OFFENSE CALLS FOR DEATH ACCORDING TO OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. IF YOU LOVE DEMOCRACY AND CITIZENS BANNED FROM OWNING GUNS, PLEASE MOVE TO MEXICO OR VENUEZELA. SOUNDS LIKE HEAVEN FOR YOU DEMOCRATS. STOP TRYING TO ILLEGALLY CHANGE THIS COUNTRY AND MOVE TO A COUNTRY THAT CONFORMS TO YOUR BELIEFS OF WHAT A COUNTRY SHOULD BE. 75% OF COUNTRIES ARE DEMOCRACIES ALREADY. SEE HOW YOU LOVE IT.

  40. Two illegal aliens living in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Montgomery County, Maryland, have been arrested and accused of raping an 11-year-old girl.

    Democrats fail Americans again.

  41. It seems odd that politicians who take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution still don't understand what the 2nd amendment's purpose is.

  42. Racists democrats promote terrorism against ice ,government employees enforcing congress law democrats refuse to solve problems promote hate division,and don't fund them for 6 months!

  43. Sorry but I'm not going to give my guns to a government that actively encourages, controls, and regulates babies making my phone. Not to mention the fact that crooked cops exist. Guns are nesscecary and the moment people hand them over the workers have lost. So have the people.

  44. Small hands, small mind. What else is small? Ask Lying Teddy Oswald Cruz. If he can't remember his dog ugly Old Lady certainly will.

  45. I really hates the left. Literally go out and buy a " scary assault rifle 15" literally assault weapons have been banned for years. Literally try and buy one the absolute first thing you have to do is FILL OUT A FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECK!!!!! REGARDLESS OF STATE!! shut up seriously. If anyone here doesn't care about children is you and your party!

  46. This tyrant really wants to start a war huh? I guess she didn't learn what happened to the British when they tried. Oh and we shot them, just so you know.

  47. Maybe it is good thing to first license publications and politicians with screening for 1st amendment rights.
    Make the lying liberals (both legislators and media) to be licence to "tell the truth". Some say liberals are unable to tell the truth, let alone know the difference.

  48. Sen, Gillibrand, I dare you to come over to my house and confiscate my guns!! Why not start by taking the guns away from your bodyguards? You hypocrite!! I would never vote for someone that violates their oath of office! You swore to defend The Constitution moron!!! Just my thoughts
