  • DeFranco the liberal shill deleting all his old videos. Funny how even Linus Tech Tips did a whole video about DeFranco deleting vids and trying to figure out why he did such a thing. For those speculating here are the facts. When the Covington Kid video first dropped DeFranco was so upset about how he perceived Nick Sandmann was mocking an elderly Indian man banging a drum in front of Nick that he took it upon himself do film a video not in his studio but outside from what appeared to be his backyard. At the time I watched the entire video and knew main stream media was editing the vid to make Nick look real bad; basically a racist Trump supporting teen, blah blah blah narrative. This was taken to another level by DeFranco who wanted to punch Sandmann and he was quite vile and hateful in his opinion/commentary. Fast forward to now when Nick and his legal team have won defamation law suits against CNN and other media. Moreover, his team is now going after other defamation cases. Now you can see why DeFranco most likely scrubbed so many vids. But also DeFranco had the BetterHelp scandal and his shill promoting the service. But in general Phil tries to present himself as someone just reporting the news but I've followed him long enough to know he is a leftist shill never Trumper and all his reporting I've seen regarding politics and somehow connected to Trump administration is always negative. For someone with generally a young audience I find it quite disturbing he has this platform to basically brain wash impressionable minds to further his political agenda and hate towards conservatives etc. How you like them apples?.......

  • DeFranco is a leftist shill peddling the lies of MSM and anything to discredit the Trump administration. Remember this is the same guy who jumped on the bandwagon denouncing Nick Sandmann when anyone worth their salt commenting on politics etc would have watched the entire tape. No wonder CNN et al have now settle lawsuit with him for their baseless defamation of Nick. Also, remember DeFranco is the same guy peddling the bs psychology site BetterHelp. I've followed DeFranco long enough to know he is biased and whatever he says take it with a grain of salt. By the way I am Canadian and have no skin when it comes to US elections etc but know a shill when I see one. Talking fast like DeFranco doesn't mean its of any substance. Be mindful of that.....

  • Extremely disappointed about the project, I never hold hopes that it would make the miles that it promised, and after Trump twitted about the quality, it was pretty clear for most that they were squeezing the money, I thought it was poor organization and costs were greater than anticipated, I hope they get crushed by the books, and the project can continue in the hands of other more honest people with whatever money is left.

  • The fact that people take this fraudulent act done and use it as a political tactic. All of a sudden capitalism and Trumps wall are a problem. Since when does isolated events speak for entire ideologies as a whole? How are these few people and their corruption proof that capitalism as a whole is evil? How is this not looked at as simply bad people taking advantage of the GoFund me system? A system which is privately run and has nothing to do with the government, and has millions of users and causes that people post hoping to be funded for. Rather than look at this as capitalism being a problem, is this not a GOFUNDME problem? The fact that a whole platform exists which is known to be relatively trusted, thats sole purpose is for people to raise money for their causes. How is this a capitalism issue? IT NOT. Its someone finding loopholes in the GOFUNDME system to exploit the users of the service. TF does it have to do with capitalism or Trump. For all we know those guys HATE Trump and the right and figured lets scam these poor saps. Lol yall a bunch of clowns. cApITaLisM bAaaAD juS liKE bIg oRanGE maN

They ended up selling the stock to cover the fee. Now, I did a manual transaction and it seemed to have worked. I like the interface and I think it will end up being a nice place for me to do micro buys and putz around with it but wanted to point out a the few problems I had to help anyone else signing up for the service.

The Clintons, he insisted, are corrupt. “The Clinton have sold out their own people for cold cash,” Bannon said. “They are grifters.” He added, baselessly, that the former first couple was running a “money laundering operation.” (Bannon would go on to run the Trump campaign and briefly serve in the Trump White House.)'

    • @javidgt8 Well of course they don't only come over by planes, but the majority of illegal immigrants do come here legally and just overstay their visa's, thus making the wall an extremely expensive waste of money, since said wall would have to plow through towns,, mountains and other obstacles, and since a wall also doesn't stop people from digging under or doing around it all together.
