    For too long, democrats went unchallenged in their over-the-top, outrageous smear, feeding frenzies against conservatives. So, now there’s a person who happens to be President, who fights back. The unsolicited advice from the peanut gallery is that one should be more presidential when occupying the Oval Office. Yet, the leftists and Trump haters also say that the President is not above the law and should be treated like an ordinary citizen. So, under unfounded attacks and outrageous smears, should not the President be able to defend himself and answer attacks as any ordinary citizen?

    I took a different perspective from her testimony. Giuliani had a mission to get her out of Ukraine directed by Trump so he could proceed with his plan on the Bidens.
    Discredit Yovanovitch so the plan could succeed was the goal. She had just been asked to continue until 2021 so a sudden dismissal was a surprise. The excuse was her suddenly doing a terrible job in Ukraine where she had been since 2016.
    If Trump had asked her to leave instead of telling her the story could be decidedly different.

    Yes, The President can and does put himself in positions that aren’t favorable but that’s him and his personality. This one man, however, has made this country so much better that the last President could ever do. He has had the Left swamper’s stay on him about everything since he took office. A person can only take so much then they start fighting back. Can you blame him? Would you not do the same?? Leave him alone! Let him finish out his Presidency and GOD help us if Killary comes in at the last minute!! She will demand to be addressed as the Queen of American. A thief, a liar, a murderer, lastly a person that allowed men to be murdered in Benghazi. She’s what we need as President in these troubled times?? No, hell no! Leave Trump alone let him run this country as he has been. He is and has been doing a good job!!

    I’m a big fan of President Trump.
    However, he has to learn to be more tactful.

    Impetuous Trump is his folly. The president, the world leader, must conduct himself with class and not create space for criticism. Let Go of frivolous matters. The president will rise above the waters when he leaves his supporters to speak on his behalf.

    You are right. The only thing that could make the Trump Presidency any better than it already is, considering the many great things that he has done, would be for someone to break his twitter habit.

    I totally agree, he does not know when to politely shut up and stay out of things.

    Agreed. He really needs a filter. I like him and support him, but would respect him more if he just would stay off Twitter and keep some of his comments to himself. It would DEFINITELY be to his benefit. Sometimes he is his own worse enemy.

    It was Schitt who broadcasted to the people and the witness in the hearings about what Trump tweeted. This is not witness tampering because the witness would not have known had Schitt not have been paying attention to twitter instead of the hearings and had he not opened his big mouth to try and make a dig at the president. As usual this is on the demoasses.

    I am wondering if maybe the President for some reason feels betrayed by her, especially if the Ukrainian President was also not happy with her? It may be possible that she did something, leaked info, spread gossip, etc…or he believes she did and he is angry about it? You know; Trump is probably under a tremendous amount of pressure, frustration, is constantly attacked, and also being betrayed by his own staff. He has done many great things for this country, is working endlessly to honor the promises he made to the American people, address issues we have wanted and needed addressed, on top of being constantly attacked and put down instead of praised for what he’s accomplished. I think if this kind of stuff the House Democrats, leftists, and Trump haters were doing this non stop crap to any one of us and our family, we would be just as angry and distrustful/discouraged as he must be. This stupid impeachment B.S. is taking it’s toll on him as well as many of the American people. It’s exactly what the House wants to happen, push him to the breaking point till he either gives up and walks away, or loses his cool and gives them what they need to destroy him. He may even be feeling very pressured about trying to get everything he promised and that he wanted to accomplish done before he runs out of the time to finish it all. The American people who voted for him need to come together and stand with him. He is honoring his words to us, and we need to do the same for him. The people have the ultimate power as stated in our Constitution to oust any tyrannical entity – foreign or domestic, and we need to come together and oust these crooked Democrats – Schiff, Pelosi, Waters, Nadler, Schumer, Quinley, and all the rest of them.

    Oh, God, it’s Larry Horist again, the dumbest commentator in existence. Everybody knew that Yovanovitch was out of office at the time of the July 25 phone call. She couldn’t shed any light on it. What Yovanovitch was there for was to describe her smear campaign headed by Rudy Giuiliani, plus to reveal the Ukrainians felt pressured to launch a needless investigation into the Bidens before she left Ukraine in May. She succeeded brilliantly!

    Why did Trump want to have Rudy do a smear campaign on Yovanovitch to get her out of Ukraine? This was the start of the plan and clear a path for Trump’s favor.
    I keep forgetting everyone is a liar except Trump.

    I agree. I understand that he is angry and hurt from all these lies when he has done nothing but good. He promised to uncover corruptness in government and is doing just that, But I do wish he wouldn’t lower himself to the enemy’s level and give them ammunition to continue to go after him. Can you imagine the fear that would invade the Dems if he didn’t remark or tweet about their lying? He is a wonderful President and would hate to lose him.
