Sadistic cop from a democrat run state, a democrat run city, a democrat majority police force, murders a gentle giant. Now democrat majority mobs of criminals are rioting, looting, attacking innocent people and destroying businesses in their own towns, cities, their own neighborhoods. Democrats like Biden say we need a leader! Well Mr Biden, you were a leader, but you did nothing as VP, the second most powerful man in the United States. Well you did get your son the crackhead some jobs he wasn't qualified for. You used your influence as VP (illegal to do) and by withholding a Billion Dollars in aid to help your son, so I guess I can't say you did nothing.
So now we have rioting all across our nation, the majority or the rioting by people of the Democratic Party.
Congratulations Democrats, your party shines"

The Hypocrisy of the dems is tearing our country apart. During the Obama years, all of these killings of black Americans (though we rarely heard of the brutal killings made by black Americans against other races) and he did nothing but talk, and he STILL IS, along with Biden, another all talk. It's like the "METOO MOVEMENT, when a dem in political system has a sexual assault/ rape then the media barely covers it, and the dem (Biden) says not true, she's a liar, and not to believe her, only believe the accuser, IF...they're conservative.

    With all due respect, the accuser lied about her supposed degrees and now many court cases are in jeopardy as she testified as an expert witness. Not exactly what you would call credible.

    Try getting your news from another source or two on occasion besides FOX. Perhaps even a newspaper or two with researched articles instead of sound bites and slogans. Trump is imploding and the GOP party will be turning on him soon. That's what happens when one is a bully, they're with you until they sense weakness. Just a few months now until we can begin to turn this country around from the divisiveness, economic inequality and environmental destruction that Trump has wrought.

          But nope, the Ignorant democrat doesn't see it that way because these things are only applied to the right, when you point your finger.
          Look in the mirror again Mr Bigot Hypocrite, it's your ugly face in denial

        Mattis, the Secretary of the Army, and the Chief if the US Air Force, all just released statements. They are turning against him.

        They understand their oath to the Constitution, including upholding the right to free speech.

        Which is a cause y'all felt pretty strong on when people wanted a haircut...

          Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Murkowski applauded Mattis for his excoriating statement about the president’s response to the George Floyd protests.

          Murkowski said the former defense secretary’s words were “true, honest, necessary and overdue,” going on to say she is sruggling with whether to support Trump this year.

          “Perhaps we’re getting to the point where we can be more honest with the concerns that we might hold internally, and have the courage of our own convictions to speak up,” Murkowski said.

          In his statement, Mattis said he was “angry and appalled” by Trump’s response to the protests. “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people – does not even pretend to try,” Mattis said. “Instead he tries to divide us.”

            Murkowski......what can you say. A more venal and disingenuous piece of milk toast has never existed. With any luck at all she is history this November.

      To that group of GOP who will want to keep their jobs, we can add many qualified, talented public servants he stabbed in the back along the way. Including former Secretary of Defense Mattis who states Trump is a threat to the Constitution.

I’m a moderate liberal who mostly votes democratic. I was furloughed and I’m currently collecting unemployment. I’m actually itching real bad to get back to work but please don’t tell my neighbors. They’re very conservative (good people) but I feel if I go back to work before they do they’ll have no one to gossip about at dinner time.
