  1. Again Trump trounces the fake Latino…
    Now we have the fake news crying about it.
    Lol. How many times does Betoe have to be slapped down to know he's irrelevant!.. Dain bramage🤯 you shouldn't have ate that dirt

  2. Just showing the truth is all. The left wing media liars said Trump wasn't welcome, that was a LIE. Beto tried to politicize the whole thing to help his dead campaign. And HE was the one nobody wanted..

  3. Trump will turn around some day and realise that nobody is willing to defend him. That's the day he goes completely insane.

  4. How can ICE personnel take part in such damaging child care abuse by denying children of their parents and also exposing children to such horrific separation. It reminded me of what you saw in 2nd world war Europe, with the SS, shameful and abusive.

  5. I have to disagree with Joel Payne that Trump "doesn't have a way out".
    He could do us all a favor by taking the "Epstein exit"!!

  6. As I look at "Baby Man" standing there with "Clueless Barbie", smiling and laughing while mass-shooting victims are feet away at death's door, two words come to mind: TWEEDLE-DEE & TWEEDLE-DUM!!!

  7. That proves that people in politics need and want jobs! That’s why they work there. That they are embarrassed by Trump only shows that they know what damage he is doing, so they reach out to journalists so that when in the future Trump is wholly agreed to be a national embarrassment, they can say, “ask that journalist, I was an inside critic”.

  8. Robert O'Rouke is a disappointment to El Paso who keeps the city of El Paso in the poor section of the country.

  9. 🚨🚨🚨 the president has put GUILLOTINES in the Concentration Camps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZ07CINbFoE&list=PL6RsCLN8pBdcYwdOixPQ2S7iEBWizvQzo&index=21&t=0s

  10. The only thing on planet earth Trump cares about is himself.

    And yet he has people convinced he's fighting for them.

    The US used to be a beacon to the world, what have we become.

  11. Beto throws "racist" around so often that the word has lost its power. Beto will do whatever it takes to try and save his pitiful campaign. Even Beto knows what he is saying is a lie. I am a hispanic Texan and Beto does not speak for me. MSNBC is tanking.

  12. Tom McConnell security officer at AV college in Lancaster California on west avenue k, is in a sick-minded peesing contest with victims of violent crimes like myself! He wakes up insulting me and goes to sleep insulting me for no reason other than being a racist terrorist hog swine wild boar pig 🐖 with military grenades according to him!!!

  13. How is Anyone surprised by any of this?? Trump is for Trump. He would push Melania into danger if it meant saving himself!!

  14. Here's the thing, if you figure the agregate I.Q. of trumps crowd to that of Beto's then Beto wins by a factor of ten..

  15. If you actually read your Bible it makes clear that you can expect this type of behavior FROM ALL CHRISTIANS…. 😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈

  16. Lock him up 4 inciting violence three months ago now1 of his followers going out and shoot committing mass murder now he shows up to brag about it what a piece of s*** was the shooter at the Trump rally 3 months ago

  17. All the good die young, John f Kennedy. Oh how this country needs you now 🙏🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  18. Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism. MAYO CLINIC https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/narcissistic-personality-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20366662

  19. America lost big time letting trump become president hes unfit and a disgrace to our great nation it was a honor calling obama president im a shame knowing trump is president

  20. I was there when in el paso
    Beto the clown O' Rourke
    Was having a rally i could
    Count his followers with
    My fingers while Mr.Trump
    Was indoors having a rally
    In El Paso Coliseum
    With more than 6 thousand
    Followers the only way Beto
    Could gatter maybe few
    Hundreds is by giving them
    Food stops paid by my taxes

  21. Trump lovers this is your president bragging crowd size he can't show empathy because he doesn't have a heart he's a Despicable human being you can have him

  22. TRUMP Stop Racist Comments to Brain wash IGNORANTS ( We Are not Animals )Raise your VOICES,.,, Repent Jesus Christ coming soon.,

  23. Trump needs to be told to care?? The White House press is saying that he needs to be a unifier. He needs to care without being told to.

  24. Trump often likes to use the word "disaster" to describe people and things he doesn't like. And I'll say Trump's visit to El Paso and Dayton was a PR disaster!

  25. Mr. Scaramoochi, you have been defending this so-called President for his entire Presidency. Yes, I hear you, you've "called him out" when he's gone to far, but can I ask you, if "his economy" weren't so good, would you put up with all this racist rhetoric and bullying A-hole behavior….? And if you wouldn't support him, if his economy sucked then I ask you, are you selling your morals and your sense of common decency for a good economy…??? Shame on you and all Trumpists.

  26. How does it feel knowing your going to have another 4 years of Trump? Don't just say you are going to leave the country, do it this time!!!

  27. I'm not surprised that trump can't play unifier with everyone calling him a white supremacist and his voters kkk members Chris. To think I used to respect Chris Matthews

  28. MSNBC and Democrats are p.o.s propagandist El Paso shooter was a leftist his manifesto is named after AL Gores book !

  29. Trump in el paso is like Hitler in israel and like Osama Bin Laden in new york. Nobody likes him nor wants to see him.

  30. Beto-

    1995 – Burglary arrest

    1998 – DUI and leaving the scene of an accident

    2006 – eminent domain ethics committee violation

    2013 – illegal Twitter stock purchase

    2018 – FEC charges illegal campaign contribution violation

  31. Wow talk about CHOOSING TO FILTER LIFE THROUGH YOUR PREJUDICE TO PRODUCE PROPAGANDA!🤢🤮🤢🤮guess this station now owned by Chinese Communist party.

  32. In the meantime! One more time these guys got scooped! We now have proof hard proof and a whole lot more of it that Obama and Clinton and their KGP colluded to undermine the free elections of 2016!

  33. Trump is the greatest president we’ve ever had! So excited to vote for him next year and watch all you democrats and hypocrites cry your liberal tears for another 4 years!!!! MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  34. Lets "do something". Holy moly. Do something that will actually DO SOMETHING! Not something that just makes you feel good. Anyone reading this, research the "facts" you are told.

  35. Robert Francis O'Rourke is just like me! He goes to the dentist! OMG!!! He can change a tire! Astounding! He gets his hair cut! FASCINATING!!! He eats doughnuts! So compelling!!! He speaks Spanish!!! Dios mio!!! I MUST vote for him!!!

  36. Trump has ZERO INTEGRITY and ZERO MORAL FIBER…. why is this suprising to ANYONE??? And, I am sorry, but WHAT A F*CKING MORON….. he thinks he is going to get Votes in Texas by saying, "This Crazy Beto…."?? Who is BELOVED by El Paso, and who was ACTUALLY CONSOLING VICTIMS?? He is JUST A FOOL.
    #WeThePeopleMustUNITE #Vote45OUT2020 #VoteOutGOP2020 #ThisMadnessMustEND

  37. NO Free-press to witness the losses/leaders actions, only his own Propaganda is to be released. Is this what America is? Time to start teaching our children “State Anthem of the Russian Federation”

  38. El Paso shooting, the best thing that could happen for his pathetic campaign and he didn't waste a minute to exploit the moment.

  39. There was no love or care, who only wanted to be in the press that worshiped the ground he walked on, that won’t turn left or right, unless Putin tells him what to do. All he cares about is fame, and having no way to push gun control the NRA won’t pay him in 2020. It is all b u l l a h I t,

  40. If Trump truly cares for all, then who he was supposed to stand up for and defend, can make 1 phone call to border patrol, re-unite children with their parents, and give first class accommodations not a abandoned Wal Mart. It takes nothing from the Supreme Court or Congress, just 1 phone call and policy changes instantly
