  • BAHAHAHA, too bad they're peddling Socialism and the opposite of what legal citizens want.
    LibTurds will never be in power again.

  • Women should vote GOP if they want to get sexually assaulted.
    A vote for the Republican Party is a vote to legalise sexual assault on women.
    Great set of values the right have, at least there'll be plenty of babies born so the NRA supporters can commit mass murder in preschools.

  • Bernie Sanders broke records with his small donation fund raising. and you people shut him down. you pushed hillary and thanks to that we now have trump. do not pull that garbage again

  • Conservatives may get Kavanaugh confirmed but he won't make it unscathed. We can see Trump's insidious intent with this choice. The GOP knew Kavanaugh was trouble yet Trump insisted. The point is the GOP thought Liberals would roll over after choosing an extremely biased blatant Republican operative just so Trump can get away with crimes. The Conservatives are not dealing with Chuck & Nancy- they have ZERO influence on liberals. We're not letting this go. One way or the other the GOP will pay the price especially for over turning Roe & ending environmental laws in this country. The people are on the side of not having radical minority rule that subverts the will of the people.

  • Voting makes no difference. Its just an illusion to make you think that corporations don't control everything

  • Kavanaugh/Trump embody the GOP "values" — white privilege, abuse of women, lying for a living, ethical and moral midgets, superiority complex.

    The difference between the parties?

    The GOP helps those born on third base steal home.

    Democrats want everyone to get their turn at bat.

  • 🚩🏎 REPUBLICAN STOCKS πŸ“ˆ—— DEMOC🐁 STOCKSπŸ“‰ —— πŸ”₯MIDTERMSπŸ”₯ —— πŸš‚πŸšƒπŸšƒπŸšƒπŸšƒπŸ’¨ —— RED OCTOBER

  • Russian hackers and Bots are funneling big money through individual small donations… it's a trick. These donations to the GOP and the Trump campaign are fake… not all of them mind you but a vast majority. I fear this story will not break before it's too late.

  • trump will never make it to 2020.
    Either Mr. Mueller or years of Big Macs, Fish Fillets and diet Coke will do him in.

  • First of all small donations should be the ONLY thing that should be fueling a candidate running not corporation pacs. Vote for a candidate that takes small dollar donations and no super pacs and should run on getting money out of politics.

  • Don't buy it. Democrats are funded and owned by big finance. Besides, what does it say about your message, when you outspend the opposition by a huge margin, and still manage to lose? I hope Democrats do get the message out there. Because it seems the more ordinary Americans are exposed to it, the more they go Republican.

  • C'mon MSNBC, The vote for Kavanaugh isn't until tomorrow. Can't you just pay another "brave" accuser to come forward before then just like all the other recent important republicans that have run since Trump has become president. What a weird coincidence that every politician accused during the #metoo movement have been Republicans that are eligible for an important position? You obviously think half the country is dumb and the other half is so emotional you can make them form any opinion you want them to. And of coarse you target the more emotional gender….

  • The tone of this network all day has been pro Trump and that scares me because they seem to only speak about Republicans and never talk about Dems

  • If Avenatti runs for president in 2020 he would get 70 million or more votes in the popular vote while Trump will only get votes in the 60 million range just saying lol

  • I have never seen a man, like Mr Trump, his tongue is loaded with ABUSE AND SHAME!!!!! HE INSULTS AMERICA EVERYDAY!!!!!

  • The Progressives are coming. Vote for humanity and non-corrupted politics. Vote for the people by the people. Vote Democrat.

  • It's a pity little Donny Jr doesn't realise that half the people on his Dad's social media saying they can't wait to vote for Trump are Russian bots πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • I'm confident the Blue is going to take the house back. The majority of Americans are fed up with Trump and wanted their lives and country back.

  • Obama & Michelle need to work hard to help flip both houses in DC. Trump needs to be stopped. Vote Blue in midterms. Vote No on Brett. Call your Senators.

  • Not all votes are cheap, these woman voters will put Trump where he belongs, RETIREMENT😎😎😎😎😎😎😎

  • Its because people are tired of "their" politicians being owned by billionaires and corporations. They represent the wealthy while screwing over everyone else.

  • All the protest votes Trump got in β€˜16 are gone. It will be landslide victories for dems in β€˜18 and β€˜20.

  • How is dirty money contributed to even dirtier politicians protected under the constitution (freedom of speech)?

  • 20 millions dollars , mayor bloomberg in nyc , must really hate trump . but he's easy to hate !! that is if you are a logical human ,

  • The real story here is that these people sending money to the DNC are just supporting whatever Corporate Democrat candidate the DNC picks. Hold your money! Wait for them to run someone worth supporting! Democrats are voting for the oligarchs agenda.This Noelle is just disgusting.

  • Why are you not reporting this MSNBC?

  • It's really sad and pathetic how politicians of America are making even intelligent Americans very STUPID. You can not really trust all of them starting from the leader down to the lower level of political system. They are working for themselves and competing against each other and really forget that they
    must work together for Americans and ordinary Americans are following suit hating each other. If you would read all the postings they are just attacking each other with vile comments like imitating the ones in the senate.Americans are forgetting the words kindness, united(not divided), helping each other, etc which they used to practice before. I wouldn't be surprised if some voters in November would not go out and vote because of what's happening today.They would ask themselves if it's worth it. Really sad.

  • The problem with a Trump local rally is that Trump only talks about himself instead of talking up the local candidate.

  • There is nothing that is going to change. The filthy, greedy, soulless 1% now control your Congress, White House and soon to be Supreme Court. So go back to your iPhones & Reality TV, so the gentile can finish what their ancestors start.

  • MoveOn, Common Cause, Courage Campaign, Act Blue and several other grassroots organizations are good places for liberals and progressives to give donations. For example, Common Cause recently won a major lawsuit to put an end to Republican gerrymandering in North Carolina.

  • hated politics cause dems lie steal cheat every chance they can.. thank god crooked Hillary didn't win.. I bet most you know not much bout her… look up some fact its all online be informed how she treated women who accused her husband.. how many millions they took from arab countries where women have no rights… who is kidding who… its all online look it up jackwads =)

  • Kkk folks trading hoods for red caps are the GOP base now,,,,VOTE to IMPEACH the treasonous LITTLE MUSHROOM DK

  • This president and this administration has become the downfall of all that is decent, Republicans must be voted out and kept out of the WH. Please get out and vote blue in November. And all you red states that are so poor and have been for decades, how sad that your bigotry and racism is the driving force behind continuing to vote red. You obviously don't care about the future of your children, grandchildren and your states. You obviously like being the poorest and most uneducated states.

  • Is there an age limit for Presidents? He's getting too old to run for president again. The USA needs a younger president with a good head on his shoulders.

  • πŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸ—³οΈπŸ—³οΈπŸ—³οΈπŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸŒŠ
    Remember remember vote blue in November
    πŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸ—³οΈπŸ—³οΈπŸ—³οΈπŸŒŠπŸŒŠπŸŒŠ

  • Difference between Democrat & republikkklan voters. Dems have education & money. repubs have low income trailer trash. 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣!!!

  • Trump rallying for voters while the USA is losing it all abroad. What type of president is that? Can't do a proper job. Only wants to secure his own private situation.

  • Capitalism is an epic fail. Proof: the first thing successful capitalists buy is socialism for themselves. Also known as the Republican Party.

  • Republicans are behaving as though there is no reckoning… Consistent with their varied end times scenarios. Ditto their leaders. They are openly looting and burning the USA, expecting no future punishment.

  • D.T. will be Revealed as a Crooked Elite long before 2020, and that his being for the working people was a ruse to enrich himself.

  • the loser dems ,.. getting ready for their latest embarrassing defeat ; Democrats are going to get wiped out next month ; massive Loss for these Losers coming !! They cannot hold back the #Red Wave #WalkAway is just too #Yuge now !! Dems are GONE !

  • You know what the democrats have recently outspent republicans and still lost. You have no idea how many republicans were woke up with these Kavanaugh "lynching"

  • Donations coming for Democrats only means ONE THING ..!! They are Pimping off their little brothers and little sisters at $5.00 a wack. And their children at $3.00 a wack… Hey, Democrats and Liberals ARE THE SCUM OF AMERICA.. They even BELIEVE incest is The way to build their voter base. !!

  • There's gonna be a LOT of dead Russian trolls floating face-down in the Neva river on November 7th. Putin does not tolerate failure.

  • Why in the name of all that’s holy, does MSNBC continue to invite β€œNoelle Shitpoor” on their shows? She is a far RIGHT wing knuckle head. Please spare us her right wing, tRump rhetoric, please! I would prefer to watch MSNBC without having to change stations because of these right wing wack jobs.

  • Every single day since Trump was elected, I donate $5 via ActBlue to various Democratic candidates and organizations. At this point I am almost at $5,000. I encourage everyone to donate $5 per day. It is easy and really adds up.
