Trump is the biggest idiot anybody who voted for him you should be ashamed of yourself! Go dig yourself a hole and go rot in it. When the man gives a speech he sounds like a f****** idiot. He slows down a speech so you can try to come up with something but it never makes any sense. Trump is the kid who's in class and makes fun of the person who is handicapped and thinks he's funny.

As an atheist I'll be needing that earthly health care. Since all the Christian health care needs are covered by God, the U.S. government can afford universal healthcare for the rest of us. Thanks Christians!!!

America was founded on suppression and slavery! Truth! trump drags out the "socialism" b.s. - OH THE HORROR!!! bWAHAhHA! What do you think social security is? What do you actually know about socialism?? Look up decent countries - Democratic Socialist govt.'s actually work! Unlike your failed, racist, republic. IF you ever actually practice true democracy - you would know the difference. So Sad, so many of you just keep swallowing slimy lies and end up with absolutely nothing except the privilege of living poor, losing sleep because of hideous health care, being homeless, having failing infrastucture problems - and best of all - millions of you drinking poisoned water. Oh yeah - it's important to back a pathetic republic. God help you all!

Nobody rich complained about Socialism when the big bailouts, taken from the public purse, were used in 2008 to save greedy Investment banks and other corporations, some of which have lately been closing plants and laying off workers to show their appreciation for the country taking on billion and billions of dollars of debt, to save their greedy asses! Do you know who's paying it back, middle class workers?

It's just not true that "nothing is free." If this dude is a man of faith, he should know that we've been given the greatest gift in the universe: This life and this planet. If God wanted us to up and die ASAP, he could've made this planet rather less habitable. Virtually all sensible religious people believe in preserving life precisely so that we can improve the world and its people.

The Cold War rhetoric is just plain degrading. This president is using the most austere platform to make partisan attacks against well-meaning people whom he never bothered to listen to. Meanwhile, the former Assistant Director of the FBI had admitted that the FBI targeted "people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez" with counterespionage operations based solely on partisan preferences - illegally, of course. Then there's the history of the CIA doing the same thing. And the history of the State Department supporting fascist organizations in South America just to keep those nations' women, workers, and indigenous people from having equal democratic rights. America can not progress - or survive - as a society if public officials continue to engage in acts of Cold War against its own citizens' simple desire to create an economy where workers and the most needy are given freedom, and agency in their own lives.

I get that this is a comedy show and people are not depicted under the best light. Yet, comedy or not, whenever I see or hear a Trump supporter they are generally one of the dumbest, most willfully ignorant people to have EVER walked the face of the Earth. I have yet to see a single one of them who doesn't believe in some fairy tale, imaginary bullshit all backed with zero evidence. To top it all off, not a single one of these fucking morons has a clue what socialism is; nor can they identify fascism when it is staring them right in the face! I'll never forget the one guy, a few years ago, protesting Obamacare and socialism by screaming out, "Keep your government hands off my medicare!"

+olds767 That's part of my point. Reality exists whether you believe it or not. Be it man made or just a natural occurrence global climate change does exist. Evidence shows mankind had a lot to do with it. To what degree or what percentage... I cannot say for sure. I know mankind is not 100% responsible. I also know mankind is not 0% either. There is an argument that most of the harmful gasses come from cows. To them I simply ask, "Between Dairy cows and those that end up in slaughter houses, why are there so many cows?" Because people require them to such a massive degree and have intentionally bred that many of them?

What a hoot! Born free?? Stay free?? The USA was founded on slavery - built on slavery - and since the dawn of your country, the ONLY people who were born free were so-called "white" people! The USA reputation is one of subjugation, inhumanity, and military terrorization! Not to mention - the US govt. invaded the USA and tried it's ugly level best to totally destroy millions of Native Americans by any means possible. FREE?? Now your govt. spies on you daily, you HAVE NO RIGHTS as citizens in your own country - both Bush & Obama cancelled those - trump is just exploiting you and the govt. to fill his pockets. Now, in electionville, it's time to pull out the moldy old nugget - "SOCIALISM". Gasp - shake - suck in your breath! "Socialism" - oh the horror!!! Bwahahaha! Of course, millions of idiots will, as per usual, listen to all the lies from your main-stream media, your senators, and the people running for president! It's best if you shrink back - swallow the crap you are fed - and vote yourselves into MORE years of disgusting B.S. - keep going bankrupt, watch your family members die from lack of care. THIS is much better than having "Universal Health Care" - just ask Canada, Australia, Britain, Denmark, Norway etc. etc. etc. Who am I kidding? Forget it. Go back to your dismal, horrible mess, and vote the way you are told to do. God bless and help you all.

The term "Green New Deal was coinded in 2007. Anyone who is paying attention to the climate crisis and who also knows about FDR's New Deal Programs and how effective they were (even a program for artists!) could create this terminology. I associate NGD with Bernie Sanders and Our Revolution. I think the " Waldorf comparison" featuring Sanders was fun --but now I want to SEE HIM APPEAR ON YOUR PROGRAM to do a bit on New Green Deal.

Phil Robertson didn't say He doesn't care about people getting sick, He said it isn't governments job to give everyone healthcare and basically Fining people for not having it is STUPID. Try reading the Bible yourself and realize people who follow the Bible still sin and do evil or dont adhere to what the Bible says. Bible NEVER ONCE SAID TO PRAY TO MARY, yet look at Catholics building a whole religion on that! and then CALLING THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS. Christian means Christ like and Jesus prayed to God his father not mary. Religion ruins the BIBLE , READ THE BIBLE, BELIEVE IN JESUS AND FORGOT RELIGION!

Is he the same guy who pointed out that "most of those people going on about children in cages don't have children themselves, that proves they're just pretending to care" ? Come to think about it, isn't that the network that habitually points out how much DT cares about the "forgotten people" and their darling little socks? Honestly, I'm from a country where a comment like that usually leads to a minor sh*tstorm, the network apologizing and that jerk either apologizing, loosing his job or both. DT is one thing, but comments like that being acceptable is just ... it's frightening. Honestly, it is. If not giving a damn about the avoidable suffering of yout own neighbours becomes socially acceptable, things don't get any better from there.

When you take away the burden of paying for basic healthcare from your citizens and their employers you free up time and revenue for other things. It's like welfare: it allows people to more easily recover, bounce back or take more job opportunities (and therefore risks). The current system in America is hamstringing capitalism in the long term, what most 'socialists' want is those basic safety nets and protections which can then augment a capitalist economy. Problem is American corporate bastardisation of capitalism is opposed to the notion of long term investment and long term gains. They forgot the 'well-regulated' part of the 'well-regulated free market' and the reasons for it: to protect the market from it's own excesses.

The problem with Americans using the words "socialism" and "communism" is that each has been abused, mauled, trampled, and changed over time by so many different news agents that each has become a competely unrecognisable term. So to start off a discussion about socialism and communism you usually SHOULD start with exchanging definitions about what each individual partaking in that discussion believes socialism and communism to be. As that is not done in most cases, the term 'socialism' or even worse (gasp) 'communism' has become a scare word for republicans, and somewhat of a misued term for democrats. It's similar to the boogey man for reps, and some amorphous undefined term somewhere between a utopia touched by the slippery grasp of pornography, and a lush, verdant green meadow covered in cow patties for the dems. It get's really strange when Americans claim that most of western Europe is socialist. As a 49 year old German I can tell you, I KNOW, not suspect, believe, or claim, but KNOW how socialism looked. It was the German Democratic Republic, or the Deutsche Demokratische Republik (DDR) that had ONE form of socialism. As a German living in the Bundesrepublik (the Federal Republic of Germany) I traveled to the DDR, and our family had friends and distant relatives there. That was what socialism meant. We were lucky to finally get rid of it in 1990 with the reunification. What is currently around in Europe has about as much to do with socialism as a burger has to do with breakfast cereal. Both are foods but they are distinctly different. Rather, both systems are socio-economic systems. Socialism in one of its many definitions is a socio-economic model that desires ALL means of production to be held by the workers. Not unionized workers, but simply NO one alone has the right to own a company. Period. For that, the government institutes rigid controls over ANY means of production, centralizes all control over it, and controls most aspects of distribution and sales, up to and including sale price for most products. What currently is around in most of Europe are some more or less social ASPECTS institutionalized BY the government, but not CONTROLLED by the government. Such as a healthcare system (not free, no, because someone HAS to pay for the costs, but the cost is spread among all people), unemployment benefits, etc. What we DON'T have is a centralized government that controls sales prices, distribution, ownership of private property, yada-yada-yada. You know, all the shebangs usually attributed to 'socialism'. So, please, dear Americans, please be so kind and learn to differentiate between Socialism, and social care. They look the same, but there are very significant differences. Just for your own good, learn those differences. It will make you look a lot less ignorant when you talk to someone who has seen socialism in its true and ugly form.
