  1. Americans did in 2016, voted in a non Politician, a businessman of action, and since you mentioned better Leadership, ZERO WARS, 3 PEACE AGREEMENTS, etc, etc, etc, walk, crawl, roll, wheelbarrow, rollerblade, bike, President Trump, THE OUTSIDER, THE NON POLITICIAN, been standing on your behalf for 4 years, while under attack 24/7/365. It is now your turn, Stand Up For Him. "GET OUT AND VOTE". CNN, the people know!

  2. Why can't you be American first not Democrat not Republican but American and pick from different parties whichever candidate seems better but Republicans always choose Republicans Democrats always choose Democrats it's never going to end and it's wrong

  3. Do not listen to the POLLS they don’t matter just vote! Democrats do not get complacent vote and vote early bring a friend or family member so they can vote as well. If you have a mail ballot take to a elections office or polling location or drop box it’s to late to mail & count ! VOTE BLUE, VOTE BIDEN/HARRIS 2020!!

  4. If the Biden-Harris Administration gets elected, they are going to take over the Senate and pack the Supreme Court. In doing so, it takes the freedom away from the American Voter and gives it to the Government. How so you may ask? When a President signs an Executive Order, it virtually cuts the process of legislation in half, making it easier to pass. So instead of providing a bill that will go through the legislative branch of government to be evaluated, it skips straight to the Supreme Court to be voted on. If Joe Biden wins, he is going to pack the Supreme Court and be allowed to make as many laws as he wants, without having to be approved by legislation. If he becomes President, he is going to do whatever his lobbyists and donors tell him to do, and by that point, there will be nothing the American people can do about it except stand up against the government, and we see how well that works out in the different countries all over the world, and the people never win.

  5. I have subscribed to CNN from the beginning. It was 8-hour, then repeat twice before the next day starts. Ted Turner, Bernard Shaw, Pat Buchanan, Evans and Novak, Larry King Live, CrossFire, then wolf and LouDobbs. I wouldn't stay in a hotel unless it had CNN. 1988 Larry interviewed Trump. He was complaining the same thing he is today – how America was the world's military FOR FREE and how Japan was skimming 200-500 billion a year from America. He said if America didn't turn that around, there won't be much left very soon. Now? For 4 years every single program was picking on Trump. Enough already!!!! Let us hear some news. I am done with CNN.

  6. JOE BIDEN IS TOTALLY CORRUPT. HOW ABOUT HUNTER'S LAPTOP. I SUPPOSE PUTIN PACKED THE CRACK PIPE FOR HUNTER IN THOSE PHOTOS TOO. A DRUG ADDICT SON WHO SELLS HIS FATHERS OFFICE AND IS DANGEROUS BY SMOKING CRACK NAKED AROUND HIS 14 Y/O NIECE. IT'S ALL FALLING APART FOR THEM.

  7. CNN IS BETRAYING THE TRUST of the AMERICAN PEOPLE. With each passing day, they are doing irreparable harm to what remains of their near non-existent credibility. While our media’s ethics and journalistic integrity has been in decline for some time, their decision to intentionally mislead the public about Joe Biden’s unparalleled corruption and hide the fact that he is a compromised Chinese asset takes their malfeasance to a whole new level. Tony Bobulinski, the CEO of the Biden Family's China Company has just revealed in an explosive interview with Tucker Carlson that Joe Biden was VERY involved in directing all of Hunter's business deals and dollars flowed directly to Joe Biden even when he was Vice President. Biden lied to the American people and there is a mountain of emails, text messages, voice mails and financial records to prove it. Ron Walker, Biden Family Friend is on tape telling Bobulinski if he goes public he "WILL BURY" THE ENTIRE BIDEN FAMILY. The media’s casual dismissal of a mountain of evidence by Bobulinski, a highly decorated Navy Veteran with a Top Secret & Nuclear Clearance as simply Russian misinformation without any evidence is unforgivable especially when the national director of intellegence, Director Ratcliffe, has sad there is ZERO evidence of Russian involvement and stated Congressman Schiff was LYING. The real problem is the Media knows Biden is corrupt but they are hiding it from the American people so they can unelect Trump because they hate him so much. It is shameful the Media is lying to us. See interview with Bbulinski: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zLfBRgeFFo

  8. Hey Ken Burns, remember when the Democrats teamed up with the KKK and fought to keep blacks slavery? Care to educate us on that bit of history right before the election?

  9. Ken Burns. WTF. This is the guy who gave us decades of the BS Lost Cause myth by placing the charming non-historian apologist for The Confederacy Shelby Foote center stage in his CW fantasy. No, Ken, you can't try to make up for the lost decades you helped impose on us. Go help take down some Confed statues and help the uneducated whites you messed up learn some real facts about US history.

  10. Yeah right Ken. Tell that to the Democratic party that deprived voters from casting votes in Bithlo precinct543 because of disabilities!
    Check out " voter deprivation in Bithlo precinct543 " on YouTube for proof!!! Stop advertising your delusional ignorance!!!!

  11. If these media people want to contribute to democracy, they should preface every discussion involving the electoral college with how much it sucks and the need to have a simple popular vote system instead.
