    Those 3000 people must be so relieved to find out they're not actually dead.

  • mackjeez  (Sep 20, 2018)

    The GWU researchers who were commissioned by the governor of Puerto Rico also counted those who died in the six months following, in what they claim is as a result of poor healthcare provision and a lack of electricity and clean water.. This left the death toll numbers to heavy interpretation, they even included a large numbers of elderly people and people that died of natural causes. Even Harvard researchers pointed out they were not giving a precise figure, not even close, and that there was an eleme...

    I almost feel bad for laughing

  • S Austin  (Sep 17, 2018)

    Trump has made sure that THIS Texan will be voting Blue ALL the way from now on.

  • m. rude  (Sep 20, 2018)

    Nobody cares, dunce. Believe it or not, the universe doesn't revolve around "Austin city limits" and PBS.

  • Let’s grow  (Sep 13, 2018)

    The entire world can clearly see that trump is not fit to be president

  • Jelle Waltman  (Sep 17, 2018)

    And why do you think he is fit to be president? You have a challenge, tell us why he is good for the USA without telling why the other choice would've been worse. Tell us why he is a good president without downplaying his opponents. What makes him the right person? Oddly enough

  • Lawrence Smith  (Sep 15, 2018)

    Entire, would include me, but oddly enough it doesn't.Not even close.

  • Yarr Harr  (Sep 13, 2018)

    "Medicare for all" is the reality in allmost every western country. -- AND IT WORKS !! -- There is nothing wrong with it... actually it is a really good investment in the country itself. Only healthy people can WORK, make money, pay taxes and could keep the stuff running. I really do not get why so many americans still think this is a bad thing.... especially exactly the people who benefit from it most!

  • Bladimir Valdes  (Jan 18, 2019)

    Because Republicans afraid of people taking "their" money little they know they ain't the only ones paying taxes

  • Homer Dalaine  (Jan 3, 2019)

    I would guess these are the people the term "ugly American" was coined for.

  • RandomAccessMisery  (Sep 13, 2018)

    He didn't *just* lie about the death toll. He unpersoned all those lost lives. Wiped them from existence. "They're just a lie to benefit the democrats."Donald Trump is the emptiest, most loathsome human being.

  • Michael de Boer  (Sep 16, 2018)

    It’s one thing that he lies about not having said a thing or denying being peed on, but it’s a completely different thing that he lies about 3000 people having died because their deaths inconvenienced him politically. He genuinely doesn’t care about doing the right thing.

  • WildwoodClaire1  (Sep 14, 2018)

    I think Paul Ryan's obsequious reaction to Trump's predictably demented comments was far more disgusting than anything Trump had to say. Anyone with a functioning brain realizes Trump is not quite sane. These days Trump sounds like he's reading a script written by the late Ed Wood: "for we are all interested in the future because THAT is where we'll be spending the REST of our lives."

  • Vito Wash  (Sep 14, 2018)

    Just impeach & lock him up.

  • Amy Hinton  (Sep 14, 2018)

    “running neck and no neck against Ted Cruz”😂😂😂

  • CareerFireman  (Sep 15, 2018)

    WilsonThere's no excuse needed for being anti-Commie/Socialist, so what's your excuse?

  • Girlgams  (Sep 15, 2018)


  • Stephanie Capelache  (Sep 14, 2018)

    When he speaks (trump) I have a feeling he’s talking like a toddler, just repeating the way someone might have explained It to him :|
