  1. And thankyou Nbc and Lester?The Kidney story is the second time in 2 weeks ive heard there is a major group going around trying to donate their Kidney to capatible patients.THE GIFY OF LIFE.??

  2. 12,000 trump lies why would we be live trump? Trump says he does not believe military and fake news…

  3. Boeing says an App is good enough to train pilots for an emergency; meanwhile after years of R&D they can't make a comfortable seat in economy class. Now we have to give reparations to African Americans? Then what? These other people are afraid of Biden, they just go after him for ANY little thing. Trump is having another pep rally; ho hum. Those truck drivers truly are heroes and they knew the job was dangerous (and low paying) when they took it. I drove enough trucks in my life and safety is most important to most of us.

  4. The Monmouth poll found Biden is currently leading others in the primary, with 32% support from Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents. So bashing Biden is Futile.The more they attack Biden, the higher he rises in the polls. Biden has not attacked a single one of them, yet his poll numbers remain high.
    When asked about Democrats in 2020, most people are "excited" to see Biden run (51% of Democrat and Democratic-leaning independent voters)

  5. When he was talking about Hillary, he was speaking about the collusion between the dnc, Hillary, and the Russians that took place in 2016… this is why he calls you fake news… omission of the facts is also lying… ??‍♂️??? (08:45) #facts = #news

  6. President Trumps’ big idea; putting Americans and America first, it’s quite a concept and helping Make America Great Again… ?????

  7. When the so-called president of the United States still thinks he's running against Hillary Clinton do we need any further proof that he is suffering from Alzheimer and dementia!

  8. May the two truck drivers who died horribly on the road Rest In Peace. Their thankless sacrifice, driving countless miles and endless hours so that goods and materials arrive at their destination can never be fully acknowledged. These are the people who are the backbone of our nation and still drivers don’t get the recognition for the good that they do. My prayers go to the deceased truckers and their grieving families with the heartening thought that one day we shall join them in that Big Convoy in the sky. ???

  9. EVERYONE NEEDS YESHUA HAMASIACH, OUR ABBA FATHER IS A MERCIFUL AND LOVING FATHER??♥️??♥️??♥️✝️✝️✝️✝️OUR LORD AND SAVIOR IS OUR HEALER, OUR PROVIDER IN OUR NEEDS, GOD USED NOAH, MOSES, JONAH, AND HE USED SAUL THAT PERSECUTED SO MANY CHRISTIANS, THEN A BRIGHT LIGHT SHINING AND A VOICE CAME UPON SAUL, he was blinded, Jesus said to Saul, “Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And Saul said “Lord” WOW!!! PRAISE GOD ALMIGHTY OUR BLESSED REDEEMER♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️Saul is Apostle Paul that journeyed to Corinth,Ephesus, Apostle Paul wrote letters and he was so committed to Lord God Most High♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  10. U.S can prove anything it want's to. I am from the UK, I still remember being told how "Weapons of Mass Destruction" could reach the UK in 15 minutes! That was a huge lie, so governments can prove whatever they want to prove.

  11. SICK of robocalls and MARKETING – all together. The cummulative amount of my time it wastes – from junk mail. SPAM, robocalls, now banners across my keyboard on my phone. It's a INVASION of my privacy, when they collect their information of my transactions – and a waste of time and resource.

  12. Can someone who is civilised please get Lester a pocket square to match his shirt and tie. Thank you, a friend of NBC.

  13. tRUMP could go on stage and take a dump and leave and the reds would applaud him for that. When I try to delve into their minds they go on a rampage against Hillary and liberals and evade the entire question. I have just come to realize I can have a better conversation with my cat's ashes.

  14. Train wreck: two concerns, now driving thru your neighborhood a train full of grenades and explosives, and, now some nut cases are thinking, I wonder when the next train full of grenades is coming to thru ?

  15. THE WHITE SUPREMACIST FAVORABLE POSITION IN ALL WEALTH IN TODAY USA IS A DIRECT RESULT OF SLAVE LABOR.. & IT'S A MESS TODAY IN TERMS OF DISPARITY IN WEALTH DISTRIBUTION….most of everything Whites have today is because of the Crimes perpetrated by their grandfather's & mothers MURDEROUS OPPRESSON THAT WOULD SHAME SAVAGES ! Even MURDERED Dr king & many many more…

  16. Truck wreck: the second truck driver was a hero, hit the concrete barrier to avoid ramming into stopped cars. But, what about the first semi driver ?

  17. If the blood of 620,000 union soldiers was not enough, no amount of money ever will be, Enough is enough, Move on people.

  18. The Biden crisis is absurd. Joe is correct. There are those we disagree with on many fronts. But you absolutely must work with others to make America great again. Defeating Trump and Republicans will help. But there will always be these types of people present, so either we find common ground on some issues, or sink. Together.

  19. Them plane crashes weren't accidents they were technologically on purpose like all these other private planes falling from the sky

  20. It's to late for secularist judaic/trinitarian white world (and their shills from every nation) to fix Muslim, black oppression questions

  21. I'm liberal, but this attack on Biden is really really stupid. Did you people not actually listen to what he said?

  22. Thank you for the nightly news but air time is precious yet you waste time at the beginning with "coming attactions". C'mon man.

  23. Wonderfull story of love at the end of the video , but let me remind you : Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth Exodus 20:4

  24. THE ORTIZ STORY IS A LIE !!! GOV. CORRUPTION , DONT BELIEVE IT , THEY LIE !!!!!! ITS A COVER UP , HOW MANY PEOPLE LOOK LIKE DAVID ORTIZ ????? A BLIND MAN CAN PICK OUT ORTIZ !!!! DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION AT IT'S FINEST !!!

  25. THE ORTIZ STORY IS A LIE !!! GOV. CORRUPTION , DONT BELIEVE IT , THEY LIE !!!!!! ITS A COVER UP , HOW MANY PEOPLE LOOK LIKE DAVID ORTIZ ????? A BLIND MAN CAN PICK OUT ORTIZ !!!! DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION AT IT'S FINEST !!!

  26. Regarding Joe Biden's past, I have this comment. Deng Xiaoping of China made the decision to create a market economy to eliminate poverty. The die-hard communists were aghast at the thought of a capitalist economic system but Deng Xiaoping answered his critics with this, "It doesn't matter if a cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice."

  27. Am I going to see the Democrats rip down Biden with his ancient actions that were actually beyond the norm for anyone outside of hate machine of the time? Get a better target than the good man that has done more than almost anyone else.

  28. I have a friend who is 85 years old. She is a beautiful person. This person takes pain meds because she has a condition with her feet that is so painful that if she does not have this pain medication she cannot walk at all. She lays in the bed and does nothing but cry in intense pain. With pain meds she can get up and walk and go places. If the weight of this pain can leave her body and give here her life back, why not????? I have seen her in intense pain without her meds and walking and laughing and happy with her meds. Why would you take that away from her. I have been in intense pain. I know what that is. Shame on all the politicians and idiots that would make this womans life useless, at 85 no less. SHAME ON YOU AMY. This woman is no druggie. She is trying to survive.

  29. Oh yes an African American president whom you battled at every step, made accomplishing his goals a nightmare…McConnell you need to retire…you're an old man who's lost touch with who lives in your country!!!!!!!

  30. Russia… if you're listening… You shot down a civilian plane. But the GOPP, Groupies of Putin's Puppets, will never see the Lier and Thief confront the murdering coward that holds the permission slip to a Rump Tower. You remember? The one with the free 50 million $ penthouse to be given as a gift to Putin.

  31. 8:00 Why are people still blindly supporting Trump?! Do they not care about truth and justice? They'd rather become the new Nazi Germany?

  32. That old racist from Kentucky Mitch McConell needs to get his neck circumcised. Wake up Kentucky don't vote for that racist old fart.

  33. When lester says "u find it odd all these angles r hanging around a bar"
    I couldnt help but yell "yeah….wooo…..this is america"!!!!

  34. I remember when he said vote or Democrats or go back to slavery. Elizabeth Warren is my pick. We already have a racist in the white house

  35. Wait a minute!! How much did they pay that black guy in the background?? Florida is for KKK, and white supremacists

  36. Action Trucking ,carry's hazmat loads in tankers and dry vans. Looks like the was a hazmat placard on the dry van, and the idiots were walking this the smoke?? Future cancer victims

  37. If African Americans get reparations then I want reparations from the germans for what they did to my Jewish ancestors.. it's just a ridiculous idea almost every culture every race has been enslaved at some point in history are we going to pay everyone that has ever had ancestors that had been mistreated in the past?

  38. I used to work for Senator Talmadge his entire staff was black, and I'm brown he was a gentleman, and the treated all of us with respect, so I never knew that he was a segregationist, but when his dad was governor of Georgia he ran his campaign on segregation…I'm glad things have changed for the better…rest in peace Herman.

  39. Reparations oh lord that should have been done ages ago! That's crazy where would cut it off? My black grand baby? Oh lord. I'm not going to instill victimhood into him- no way-what's a robo call?

  40. When are people going to wake up to the KKK DEMONCRAT party!

    They're the originators of racial hate! Ask Hitlery about her mentor Larry Byrd !!!

  41. Rail derail was a test pay attention; and how you not know Big Papi cmon sounds like since he wasnt killed it was a mistake yeah right.

  42. My prayers to the family of the hero truck driver and a true Ode to the song Phantom 309 God bless you the Lord keep you may he make his face to shine upon you brother trucker may heaven an open its arms to receive you amen and a note to all the other drivers out there just remember their lives on the road and their lives are in our hands every time we turn our wheel everytime we turn that key every time we step on our air brakes every time you tailgate a four-wheeler every time you cut off a four wheeler because you're going to miss an exit just remember trucks equipment even customers and loads can wait life's cannot life cannot be replaced

  43. Omg he truly loves his country what is she a robot? I mean gimme a brake , so lame, can I get an amen lol

  44. “As reported by the Washington Post, McConnell boasted to constituents at a 6 August 2016 political event in his home state of Kentucky about successfully blocking President Obama, the nomination of Merrick Garland :

    “One of my proudest moments was when I looked at Barack Obama in the eye and I said, ‘Mr. President, you will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy,’” he said to cheers at the annual Fancy Farm Picnic.”

    McConnell is denying reparations because not only is he busy being racist, but he’s also busy using tax payer money to pay $102 MILLION for his orange lover to go golfing. AND for the Cheeto’s kids to go on their business trips. AND for the orange troll’s immigrant “wife” to go wherever… $174,000 for one trip. Well, with secret service, and hotel accommodations, and flying on government planes and all, I can see how it all makes perfect sense?

    So how in the world is he supposed to pay for reparations, he’s spending he money elsewhere.?

  45. I'm Asian -Sorry, but why should I pay for reparations in this modern era…or any other ethnic minority (other than blacks)?? Unless they want to target ONLY white American's taxes to fund this free meal

  46. Come on my fellow American patriots !! LET'S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN !!! AND KEEP IT THAT WAY !! YES, WE CAN !! A Safer World and a More Hopeful America!! For People, for a Change !! It's Time to Change America YEAH !!! USA #1 The world, is a small part of America!

  47. Ortiz was no mistake the gun men was to close to be a mistake the guy looks like a gorrila how can it be a mistake ?
