David, you're looking fragile and tired.

Ignore the clinton crimes you hypocrites. Ignore Obama's misuse of the FBI and IRS and DOJ. Ignore the Comey Lies, The Lynch Tarmac Scandal , The Top Secret Emails on clinton Servers.
You all LOVE LIES because you Father IS A LIAR. It's in your DNA.

Watching delusional and desperate Democrats continue to melt down and self implode is highly
entertaining. Trump adheres to the Constitution whereas Obama never did. FACT
Obama weaponized the IRS to target his opposition. Did the liberals complain? Nope. Obama sold
AK 47's to the Mexican drug cartels. Democrats didn't care.The liberal media gave Obama a free pass.

You know Ronald Regan (Trump's hero) was mentally ill too. They need to do a full psychiatric evaluation of this man. Most of his base are deluded, low-education voters. Somethings gotta change in America because these people are not well.

Chuckling Sparrows · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

This is propaganda, speculation & opinion…not news – pure and simple. Is it possible to speak with someone on the phone, and also say that you don't know them?…well, yes, it is…

Shirley HSW · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Rump's statements about the Russian investigation just prove how Delusional he is.

This is a very Bad sign for Global Security,
Someone better be looking at him, to Ensure the Football doesn't get MisUsed

The Stonegate Roadrunner · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

The problem is not that Trump speaks like a true autocrat, the problem is that about half of the american population is cheering and praising him for it.
Trump is not the problem, he's just one of the symptoms.

Troy Thomas · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Greatest President of all time.If you people watched something other than lib media you would see it. shame.

nikprntss · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

As the secretary of state Rex Wayne Tillerson said, "he's a F#*king Moron". We have a self congratulating hypocrite as president

Steven Feduk · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

You, Trump, are not 'The Country'.
The Country looks better as it defends itself, from you.

Cyrus Slapatich · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Trump is setting the stage.

Trump is an Embarrassment. we all know why.

Nancy Smith · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Obsessed with being secretive dictator like friend Putin?

FamilyGene · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Real slow for the Leftards : He is Commander and Chief and yes the Justice department is part of the Executive branch.

President D.Trump should shut down any fake news channels that report lies to the American people as that would be good for America.

Nogent Alex · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Mastah of da free world

zach spetko · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

The left does not believe in freedom of speech and also promote social inequality, they want the rich to be better then you and tell you what to do and think. Simple.

Bombus Hypnorum · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Well, I'm with the President 100% Love from the UK.

1pt21jigawatt · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

The number subscribers is about the amount of people who watch BSNBC. More fake news.

p.c. · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

trump is in trouble! he is between a rock and a hard place. And trump knows that he is in trouble, and so does his lawyers. Why would you say, "Mueller will be fair," if you know that you are not in trouble? Why all of a sudden trump's lawyers are calling Flynn is a liar? Why does trump keep saying that there is no collusion? Why is trump always comparing his situation to Obama and Hillary? Why would trump say, "I can do whatever I want to with the Justice Dept.? FOLLOW THE MONEY! trump is running scared!

Mick Swagger · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

FBI made USA look bad!!

About that Christmas picture of Dotard & Melania in front of the decorated tree. "See! Look at MY tree! I have the biggest, greatest balls in the world! Oh! And some of them are Melania's boobs! I'm not sure, but I think she put them there! Nice boobs huh?!" – Dotard tRump

Timothy B · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Donald Adolf Trump the Hitler wannabe Dictator

Jim Roc · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

And yet the Republican Party still supports him. Trump supporters better wise up. He’s destroying everything he touches.

DataWaveTaGo · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

"I know the tax deal better than the greatest CPA." – Dotard tRump. LOL! Pure comedy Gold! Once again Dotard proves SNL lives at the White House 24/7.

Ivan Barkhuizen · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Trumps like the leader of a cult .. bunch of crazies if you ask me

KEN WALZ · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

I'm tired of hearing Chris Hays tell me to pick another video!! Keep them on a loop so I don't have to spend my time picking different shows! Most video have no picture on my computer so what you are is a talk radio with too much dead air!

Mason S · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

It's a little sad that they got three of them together for an interview and not one of them was there to give "the other side". All of them were on board with the same political view trying to convince you that Trump is somehow a dictator just because he said one thing about the judicial branch and just because of the probe, which has gotten absolutely nowhere.
First- The President can do some things with the judicial branch. He can get people into the. Supreme Court if there's an opening, advise against certain things, etc. Yes, ultimately there's a system of checks and balanced, but the President getting involved isn't necessarily a bad thing unless he's deliberately obstructing the judicial branch. 
I think he's more or less frustrated with a probe that is still acting like a legitimate threat when it has done nothing over the past year. Nothing.
Everything that was supposed to be there that the media has reported on has resulted in apologies and retractions, so don't be suprimes when it happens again.
Secondly- He's right about the Democrats being completely ignored in their own collusions. And that, even if he did collide with the Russians, there's nothing against the law there. They try to slide that one under the table in this interview though by writing it off.
Third- His trade policy with China is a good thing. That is something the Executive Branch specifically sets in place, and yet this interview is trying to make it seem aristocratic in nature. All he's trying to do is prevent a war.
So in conclusion, this entire interview is a bunch of biased crud. I came to watch a political discussion, not a rant about how much of a dictator you think the President is and how he's somehow worse than Kim Jong Un. The media today is so ridiculous.

Aurenghzeb The Great · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Is this a msm……with commentary like this, looks from a 3rd world shithole!

Captain Courage · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Trump is right, again.

Blair Loggie · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

This shows the weakness of your system and ours in Canada; The US needs proportional representation for starters. The next democratic congress should outlaw gerrymandering.

lesia Pellerino · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

No donny , not even your wife loves you.

Everyone, donny knows you are a Liar, ha,ha,ha!

David Frum looks like he just woke up with a huge hangover.

Ameha K · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Anything trump claims or denies, it's likely a lie.

Hulkonala · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

The CONMAN wants to OWN the department of justice… SHOCKER…

jody tahoe · December 31, 2017 at 1:05 am

Right there in a nutshell is the core problem with him and his administration:  he treats the Presidency as if he were "Dictator in Chief" but in fact he's (supposed) to work for us and over half of those voting did NOT choose him.  It's not quite been a full year and has long since already felt waaaaay too long for his tenure.  The GOP needs to make a New Year's Resolution to put country over party — y'know, that whole oath thing they all took…
