100 thoughts on “Grieving Victims Tell Trump To Stay Away After Shootings | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

  1. Trump has a similar personality and magnetism that Charles Manson had. That in relation to his ability to manipulate, control and influence othes to do his bidding. I'm just saying.
    BTW Manson was guilty of the crimes the others carried out.

  2. It makes me so sad how brainwashed and divided people are because the media ia used to divide the people to make us easier to control. Blows my mind how any person in America believes that their political party or a politician is the answer to their problems. People turn to the same thing thats destorying them to save them.

  3. he does bring people together, he has the country engaged in an era when they don't talk to their neighbors about the important things in life, we have the possibility to engage in a exponential increase of understanding , but we must be logical and fair in our arguments, empty words from politicians during an election is deceit prone and needs to be scrutinized

  4. Anti-American, anti-white, communist PROPAGANDA pretending to be news. President Trump is probably the best American president since George Washington. Ridiculous to listen to these invaders attack America's president.

  5. He’s the new thing with an old hatred. Eventually, Donald’s nightmares about himself will soon become a reality. The day he’s no longer deemed relevant and was just a flash in the pan. He’ll be ridiculed throughout history for his blunders.

  6. In defense of Donald Trump his rhetoric really does bring people together. For example : racists, the kkk, white supremeists, neo naziz, etc.

  7. How can we be in talk,s like this and about the president of America,my father was a world war two vet and this is not what he fought for, we must never forget what the great men and women of this country died for,God we need you now more than ever 🙏.

  8. you just article from new york Times who and why do you people say or speak for the people whst ur mayor what o'rouke gang this so sick listen buddy again uall opnion the mayor had no respect our President dud what he needed to do and I heard her may ur speak after our President left look at the group who are these people do i have to tell u stop the hate and bias when our President Clinton got caught with the girl under the desk this country started to be divided when Obama came the hate and bias to the people that didn't agree with Obama Congress is the one that has blood on there hands and the was invasion in this country costing over 138 billion dollars antics is a domestic terrorist group sorry America don't let the democrats use u the Mexican Latino are going to be used by the democrats stop lying grow up the media are lying about who were the invasion but boy when African started to come in few months boy you all were showing the borders. the American Mexican the American Latinos u will be use wake up illegals are illegals alot of people came in to this country legal stop do you all know who was the invader? ✊🇺🇸🕶 please God is not sleeping .

  9. Those poor little kids on their first day of school. No Parent to pick them up, the door locked. This is NOT MY COUNTRY anymore. I do NOT Recognize it.trump is MURDERING OUR DEMOCRACY.Shootings EVERYWHERE. OUR COUNTRY is a WAR ZONE

  10. Grieving Victims and Family Members have so much to deal with. But that doesn't stop the Fake News from acting like the self appointed spokesperson for everyone of them. The way that the Left wing in total goes into action blaming Trump, makes it look like they did it all. Because Fake News is not going to ever point the finger at themselves.

  11. The FBI and many other Gov. Employees have been and still are to busy trying to overthrow the President we elected.Instead of doing their jobs keeping our Nation safe.They could have prevented some of these innocent American's murders if their priorities are Americans.The FBI head has let it's body way down and us all.

  12. Im not the biggest fan of Trump. I certainly was not in support of him for president, but your blatently biassed coverage is ridiculous. You speak of Trump's inability to apologize fir a situation that any thinking person kniws that he did not create. As journalists, you are disgraceful. You are callous, and its apparent that you are all bought and paid for. What's in his hearr and brain is for him to know, abd is probably, at least his own thoughts. It's like you people were reading from a script, tag teaming the president. I know who pulls your strings. What did you have to do to get your jobs? Is the check worth your integrity? Did you have any to start with.? Growing up, going through journalism school, or broadcasting school, did your professors tell you, "The job of a journalist/broadcaster is to project the storyline dictated by their overlords, always being cognizant that truths are nice to be found in your story, but are optionalto pointed subjecture. Here's what I believe now that I have watched your entire report. Donald Trump's is President,you don't like that,he went to Texas (and he may have shot a lot of people)..SHAME ON YOU MSNBC!!! YouTube, I want you to stop showing MSNBC (an Fox News( after every video i watch. I'm about to cancel my subscription because of it. FIX YOUR ALGORHYTHM!

  13. This is all Trump's fault ? When Obama was in office the Demokkkrats must have been tongue tied or asleep because they were not blaming him for any of the murders that happened while he was in office. There were a lot of murders then to.So the Left wing's new found concern looks as fake as the Fake News is.

  14. The WH under this administration itself is a war zone, he enjoys a pit fight and seeing the survival of the fittest… sadist

  15. I would just like to say that if USA re-elects Trump, as well as those Republicans in the Senate blocking new gun laws, then there is no hope for your nation….

    I know that 2016 the circumstances were in many ways different where even heck of lot of Democratic voters did not want to vote for Hillary Clinton….but now that its not gonna be the case and everyone has seen just what kind of person/leader Trump really is, then I cant see how anyone but the most radical Trump supporters/red neck hillbilly Americans could vote for him again.

    Honestly in those swinger states that turned the 2016 election for Trump I could imagine that many who voted Trump back then would have no trouble whatsoever in 2020 to vote for Biden (since he is most likely gonna be the one to be Democrats nominee)

  16. Yes SOME in Dayton protested Trump coming, The rest of the world welcomed him. The left is actually trying to make money off of the pain and suffering. Dozens of episodes of the left's propaganda machine (yes that is u MSNBC) used this horrific event as an excuse to dump on Trump, Conservatives and millions of Americans.
    So WHO EXACTLY is the side which is abusing this event and using it for their own purposes? yeah you know who you are. Even your own mindless followers are starting to see who u are as well.

  17. Does someone mind telling me why republicans lack every form of empathy and common sense?

    Amnesty International was right to declare the US not safe for travels, because it is not. I am actually starting to believe that the US doesn't deserve the status of a developed country. You can't control your people, you can't make education accessible, you don't have anything that would qualify as a health care system where I live and so on. We have all heard the horror stories but I as a european can't help but become numb to it.
    I am truly sorry for everyone who has lost someone due to americas gun idiotism.

  18. It's the same "script" with these shootings over and over again. The shooting happens, then the grieving families are in the spotlight, asking for gun control. It's a bit too simple, too repetitive, it makes one wonder about these events.

  19. Trump speaks with a Forked Tongue! And he should be jailed like the hate preaching Imams who promote terrorism!

  20. No actual video..don't believe fake MSNBC. Time to wake up Pelosi to ammend the 2nd amendment. Msnbc is the front news media of Youtube

  21. My heart hurts to see such hate and cruelty in this country! I don’t even want to watch the news anymore it’s so depressing. God help us all.

  22. Who attacked him repeatedly? No integrity, hypocrisy from the angry, hateful, race-baiting, globalist morons and scum also known as DemocRATS.

  23. Hey America – seriously – could he be David Dukes' long lost brother ?(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Duke)... considering the lies just keep on spewing from T rump – USA's 1st fascist racist dictator! And then there's Moscow Mitch – T rumps favorite .itche next to Barr & Kelly Ann Conway that is… and dont for forget Fox's darling – F.cker Carlson. Imho, if the current scenario does not change, expect yet another FALSELY ELECTED potus in 2020!

  24. Should Trump be reelected will Americans begin seeking to flee the violence, chaos and stagnant wages? Should other countries treat American immigrants the same way we treat our own?

  25. He is a citizen of the United States no better than the rest of us. If the congress and the courts cannot or will not deal with this blastfullmess excuse for a human being. Deal with him in the only language he understands MONEY. Bring law suite down upon him like he has never seen. FOR: Inciting civil unrest, damages. personal harm and injury etc, etc. ask any law studend let alone a lawyer. You can bankrupt him into impotence. Start today.

  26. Everyone here that "Hate Trump" are going to get Karma is a word meaning the result of a person's actions as well as the actions themselves. It is a term about the cycle of cause and effect. You Cause "Hate Trump" The Effect "People Love Trump" Do not hate someone that is helping people because those people will support him.

  27. 45 have ethics, a conscientious code relating to human dignity and rights? He doesn't have any moral criteria, he has no philosophy, no coherent system to organize his beliefs other than what seems to benefit himself. His beliefs are momentary without an understanding of society or historical context nor economic realities outside his sphere. This untethering detaches morality from any binding ethical doctrine, it allows him to lie since in any moment his views relate only to how he feels about a subject in that situation. As a fish remains unaware of water 45 sees no racism in his language or directives, 45 sees no problem going to El Paso.

  28. Trump is a play book Narcisist and narcisits are unable to feel empathy.
    His wife is not much different. She posted on her Twitter account a photo holding the baby of the murdered parents with a broad smle.The baby was picked up from his relatives for the photo op.

  29. so wait a minute this is funny .. if i am listening to this right …Trump the liar in chief , is saying that the mayor is lying about everyone welcoming him and he did the right things at the hospital?? So, hes saying he didnt say the right things and did well. hmmmm a lie about a lie ..

  30. "Oppressive language does more than represent violence; it is violence; does more than represent the limits of knowledge; it limits knowledge… language designed for the estrangement of minorities, hiding its racist plunder in its literary cheek… It is the language that drinks blood, laps vulnerabilities, tucks its fascist boots under crinolines of respectability and patriotism as it moves relentlessly toward the bottom line and the bottomed-out mind." – Toni Morrison This is on all of us. Every millionaire working for billionaire network owners who kept cameras focused on the Trump campaign, normalized lies, modeled respect for brutality, bigotry & violence. Every member of the swamp & oligarchy who supported fascist bigots to further enrich themselves. Americans who didn't call for a general strike and allowed a regime rejected by the majority of voters to take power without protest. Every member of Congress who voted to increase CBP & ICE funding for crimes against humanity. Everyone who doesn't demand daily the resignation or impeachment of Trump/Pence. https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/news/a47407/american-nazi-party-supports-trump/ https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2018/10/caravan-lie-sparked-massacre-american-jews/574213/ https://www.mediamatters.org/tucker-carlson/white-supremacists-rally-behind-tucker-carlson-heil-tucker

  31. Trump has no conscience. He is a completely empty vessel. He is a modern Frankenstein. Isolate Trump supporters.

  32. What else do you expect from MNBC ~ They earn a Living bashing Trump ! If it weren't for Trump – MSNBC wouldn't exist – Tell me I'm wrong !|! I remember a progressive main stream media station in Australia commenting on a talk, University of Toronto professor Jordan B. Peterson was to give – that there were 'thousand's' of people protesting his appearance online. What the main stream media DIDN"T tell their viewers was that for every negative online comment there were approximately TEN POSITIVE comments in support of him ! So even though the TV station 'proclaimed' he had thousands against ! (2000) against Peterson ? They DIDN"T show he had 24,000 comments SUPPORTING him !|!|! Don't believe ANY media people !|! Think for yourselves !

  33. privately trump is rejoicing over the elimination of non-whites. And the republicans protect this dirt bag. in 2020 go full blue and MAGA for real, you know how it was before trump.

  34. He should have stayed away if the mourners did not want him. A competent leader would have stayed away but asked for a meeting in a couple of weeks to talk about why they did not want him to be there and what he could do to help them. Just a meeting outsider of the lime lights.
    What happend now is comparable to an uncle that insists of showing up at the funeral of your father allthough they were not on speaking terms for years. And this uncle even insists on talking on the funeral.

  35. Wow….. all those comments. It's easy to see why MSN is tanking in the ratings. The viewers seem to be compromised almost entirely of petulant, ill-informed children.

  36. most of the anti Trump people are very sick in their minds. I work in a hospital and I see so many off balanced people come into the ER with suicidal behavior, and they are blaming it on Trump! they are eventually sent to the behavioral health center where they are treated with psych meds to calm them down. some of these deluded people demand drugs like Ativan to "cure the problem"most of these people are so mentally off they are hopeless. this is what I am seeing with the people on MSNBC. something is off with all of them. not a logical thought in their brains. and look at their eyes! they cant control their emotions. they are a mess!

  37. illegals are a huge problem for our country. you can be in denial if you want. that's probably why all of you are so pro- abortion, because when the illegal immigrant impregnates an underage girl, (OH YES THEY DO) you wanna be sure she runs straight to planned parenthood

  38. Fake news!!!…. I watched a video of the people…nurses doctors, first responders, and victims of the shooting clapping for our great president!!!.. try showing those videos on your CNN news your RATINGS may improve if you were honest…. But again pigs will never fly!!… TRUMP 🇺🇸 2020🇺🇸

  39. Well mom if you did life the Legal way maybe your kid would still be here ..TRUMP is Right,And its not his fault.

  40. this it the most racist president we ever have his action and his language prover they is more hate this day since he become president .

  41. Trump is bringing us together , not only in America but around the world. He's bringing us together to fight AGAINST him. We cant allow this dictator to continue.

  42. Why Aren't People Paying Attention? Where Are The
    "FACT CHECKERS???"
    "Donald John Trump Has Already Said, That His Job Is 'NOT' TO
    COMFORT YOU!!!"

  43. President Donald Trump is NOT a racist. WAKE UP people!!! Media continues to twist the truth. MAGA 2020. ❤🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷

  44. Donald Trump supporters will continue to support him, regardless of how you spread evil gossip.GET REAL.HE IS NOT A RACIST NOR DOES HE HAVE HATE FOR ANYONE. YOU ARE ALL PATHETIC. MAGA 2020

    6. Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection

  46. Something is seriously mentally wrong with Trump. His dad suffered from Alzheimer's and he may be experiencing early onset.

  47. All democrats! He ,trump ,should watch himself in Dayton Ohio! There the shooter was a Warren supporter, using the democrat playbook, Warren is s racist!
