Guess who said it: President Trump or Kim Jong Un
Sadly there are no checks and balances right now, the republicans have all the branches of the government including the supreme court. And they the republicans kiss Trump’s ring and bow at his feet. The republicans own Trump or should I say Trump owns the republicans. Ya’ have to lose all respect for most of them and how they react to Trump.

Apparently, like most conservatives on this forum, you share the same "I got mine" attitude and could care less for other people, as well as the planet. That's not the case with Bill Maher (not that you'll understand, of course).

Not surprised by Maher's assertion. One wonders whose side these Leftists are on: democracy or true dictatorships like NK.

Keith Ellison recently claimed that a dictator who feeds his political enemies to dogs is more responsible than Trump.

Go to the Internet and look up comedian, then joke, and get back to us.

Brazil got where it is via colonial exploitation, military coups, and more recently by socialist government policies. Trump is an anti-socialist, as such he is leading the U.S. in a different direction than Brazil.

it is pretty obvious they are telling their true thoughts. Many liberals have also admitted using these types of shows as news sources

Trump doesn’t want to read intelligence reports, he might learn something.

Exactly. Maher is a comedian, and entertainer. He says stuff so people talk about him. However, Bill, exactly what has Trump done to make us like North Korea?

Has Trump:

Replaced Capitalism, with Communism
Stopped free speech
Taken over the media
Taken away our legally owned guns, and the 2A
Abolished the Constitution
Jailed those who disagree with him

Well, what has he done, Bill? Please do tell. Maher is a TWIT.
