Thousands of people celebrated at Pride events in cities across the world on Sunday, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Jeno Anthony Horvath JT only does this for votes. He only goes to the one in Toronto as that's where a huge amount of votes come from as we do not have an electoral college here in Canada unfortunatley.
Susan Wilson Where was Donny, Ivanka, Melania, Pence......? Anyone from Trumpville? Yeah the bunch of fakers.... couldn't even pretend to show their support....really, really sad !
Kathy Snow I don't see anything to celebrate. You want to be gay? Good for you. The world doesn't have to approve of the spectacles you make out of yourselves in these parades of your lifestyle choices. You act like spoiled children who got their own way for doing something they shouldn't be doing, so you celebrate and want the world to agree with you.....just wrong. It's really sad the news gives you this attention.
Emeka Mmadu I wear rainbow shirts not in solidarity with LGBT community, but in celebration of God's covenant. The rainbow colour is God's colour but the children of perdition are poised to change that. God forgive them for their ignorance.
William J R Hall And people still wonder why the Democrats are in the worst position politically since Reconstruction?? Look no further than yesterday across this country!! Keep up the fringe marches, riots, looting, American flag burning and replacing, and LBHTQUABBSD+ worshipping and you will be out of power for another 50+ years at least!!
JR Anderson Just a thought here, I changed my mind on this gay thing. I am now for this gay pride, transsexual rights movement. If everybody will turn gay we can control the over-population problem here in the US and Canada. This might be the answer to climate control also, less humans to drive cars, fly on airplanes, etc. Oh and think of the money saved on delivering all those babies on Obamacare. And last but not least no more abortion problems. Folks this could actually save humanity, go Gay Pride!
Lorraine Craft I love the fact that Christians are so called spewing hate and are judgemental because we don't condone your life style. Doesn't mean i hate you, don't agree with you and i don't have to agree!! Big difference! Keep speaking truth!!!!!!
Chandler Smith Barack Obama was President for 8 years the Republicans elected Trump for 4 years where they accomplished almost nothing Democrats in 2020 and 2024 are going to win the presidency 22 years of Republicans not being able to accomplish anything sad but that's because their party is falling apart.
Szabi Agyagasi Not across the world only in a couple of western countries
Robert Hovis So much hate.... Well don't closed minded fools are becoming the minority more and more everyday... Hopefully in the coming years gay kids will never have to see your hateful ways
Judith Lewis Foolish are so called "christians" who claim they follow Jesus's teaching...but hate their brothers. Sad that no one can be born different in America.l..since the homophobics run wild with their "religious freedom" and persecute the different..See following posts....
Angela Landestoy I am in my 50's, but I still wonder, why and how is important for the whole humanity, who we have sex with? How people will feel, if every time when I have sex, would go telling everyone. Wouldn't be nice, isn't it? I don't care what people think of me, I don't care how many accept me. It will be , people who love us, and people who hate us. Why been part of LGBT, needs a parade and a "pride day"? everybody should be proud to be who we are, regardless who we decide to sleep with, or love, or married. None of my gay friends, participate in this shows. I have several, and they don't see the need of this. But this colorful propaganda is good for business. I guess. Politicians take great advantage of this. Some others use this platforms, to show how progressive they are. In reality is not a life changing thing, to be gay. It is who they are. Why have to be taken out of proportion? Is not a human right. Guy people can vote, they can get married now. What else is left? This is just a show, and is also, some kind of imposition for the rest of us. Why is so important, to show pride on something, they want to be seen as normal? Still not getting it.
Tulibaleka Paul Seems I don't really understand !!! I read across the world and expected to see video showing the event from all the continents.
Ali Collins When the world according to CNN is a couple US cities, Toronto, and Istanbul 😂😂😂. The sky is your limit, CNN. You never run out of ideas!
Devin Brown How do people call themselves Christians but out here judging and hating others.
Paul Austin I wonder why they insist on forcing everybody to accept their bedroom habits...geez a bit ridiculous. When will heterosexual pride day come about. I mean afterall without heterosexuals there would be no homosexuals.
Danny Richards We are in the last days , the Bible says this will happen
Gamal M M Ibrahim A russian went for an eye check up. The doctor showed the letters on the board: CXWSNQSTAZKY Doctor: Can u read this ? Russian: Read ??? I even know the guy .... he's my cousin
William Lashley Interesting thought, you can freely do this in Western nations, but call those western nations evil. Yet at the same time, some nations hate you and prevent you from even living there, and you want to turn western society into that?
Azril Ayub Those group of people should be taught a painful lesson of not going for same sex intercourse as even animals don't gay up among themselves. Wtf is wrong with the humans nowadays. SICKENING ! 😡
Mary L Whitelaw Justin Trudeau participated to show support! It will likely get him votes! So what? He's earned them on this front! Now fiscally, I'm not so sure!
Corby Miller You do realize that he is bringing in some bad ones that if given the chance, or in a generation will be killing gays right ? He's not your friend.
Joseph F. Swift Kids and infants in a gay parade. Rediculas. You wanna pickle puff and rug rub at least send the kids somewhere
Scott Arend It's a sad day in America when people take to the streets to celebrate where they stick their parts instead of celebrating something virtuous
Lovet Mufandarabwa What's pride about shame and anarchy?

Nearly six months after he took office, US President Donald J. Trump will welcome Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the White House on Monday.

Ernest Murphy Modi is Trump's kind of guy. Cuts health care and social programs, considers his own religion the only one appropriate for India, hates Muslims.
Jeff Wegner US President Donald J. Trump will welcome Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the White House on Monday. Fixed the headline for you, CNN.
Matt Currie I got deported from India back in 2006. It isn't as horrible as libs make it out to be. They just send you home. Libs should try it. Its not that bad.
Abhishek Shenoy Long live President Trump and PM Modi. And CNN as usual, you would surely focus on a biased narrative as a liberal mouthpiece won't you?
Stan Piznarski There is no doubt President Donald Trump will be in the White House for the next eight years. America is way better under his presidency, The economy is improving constantly ,illegal Crossing down 75%. M.A.G.A.. WINNING 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Dar Nelson My sympathy to PM. I can see you getting bashed once you leave leave the house. He'll probably want to show you all the gold items he's shipped in to decorate.
Lance Thompson Mr. Prime Minister, Do everything you can to ignore the fact that you're sitting across from a moron. It'll be hard but you can do it. Just focus on pleasant things like your Mom's home cooking when you were little.
Berry Griffin Is not the government's job to fix the climate. You idiots want the government to have less power, yet you keep depending on them for everything. Companies like Tesla have done more for your cause than the US government could ever do
Eric L Gallardo I hope the author of this story got approval from top brass at Comedy News Network. I just saw story on Fox News that CNN story tellers got a slap from the "boss" for false and unconfirmed stories. A step in the right direction CNN, but MANY months too late. Your trust will take a LONG TIME to be re-established by real American Patriots who were smart enough to look through the smoke of VERY FAKE NEWS and Demolost party propaganda.
Ryan J. Farrick Waiting for the inevitable back-and-forth of bad insults between Indian and Pakistani trolls.
Shirley Klein I would like to apologize to PM Mondi for our ignorant president. The majority of Americans did NOT vote for him
Aamar Javed butcher of Gujrat is on the way to meet one of the most hated and prejudiced President of USA.
John Carr Modi will not find it as easy as the last President he negotiated with.
Eric L Gallardo Our great new Leader has been so busy!! His resolve to put the USA first has already secured his win for 2020.
Michael Crouse YET ... the liberals will find something to criticize instead of creating good-will communication
Robert Mouton
Denese Spataro Paszko Everything for Trump is tough talking. He's a babbling idiot.

Chard Ducharme Is there a betting pool for what dumba$$ sh*t he will say?
Pat Roberts where he'll thank him for taking care of his family business interests in that country?

Ahalya Bhan Well, I am waiting for the interesting press conference to follow 😂😂 Both leaders love to make big promises, we'll know soon enough who will deliver them.

A giant rainbow flag was raised atop the Space Needle in Seattle during the city's Pride parade on Sunday.

Paul D Pelton Jr. They took down the American flag and raised the gay flag.
Steven Brooks Want a joke. America is getting worse by the day.Put up a military flag.For people who fought for this country.Want a disgrace.God is watching everybody.Want a slap in the face to the military and the American flag.I will have to face god one day.So will everybody else.
Katie Burckhard many people angry & objecting. Makes me curious how many of those SAME PEOPLE are up in arms when Seattle flies the 12th Man flag. I'll wait.
Harold Melton Isn't that just so EXCITING? A rainbow flag was raised atop the Space Needle and the Cartoon News Network made it a FRONT PAGE item. ...oh, isn't that jux so exciting? One would think the Fake News Headquarters could come up with something that..., oh, never mind.
Brian Hawks If you are a gay Bible thumper and like to say God approves of same sex acts, then WHY is Leviticus in the Bible. It says, " A man shall not lie wiith another man as he lies with a woman. Interpret all you want to soothe your souls, but you can not spin this in your gay favor.
Amy Bausher It is terrifying and saddening to me to read these hateful, fear-filled comments. So many self-righteous hypocrites and not enough love to go around. The world evolves. Progress of civil liberties always wins out over oppression eventually. Your hating a losing battle. 🌈
Beatriz Dos Reys Unnecessary .. put up the straight flag also.. the refugees, Hispanics, blacks .. oh wait the confederate??Is there one ? 😂 a flag won't change anything. Fight for your rights .. the right way and maybe by demonstrating in your communities how tolerant and wonderful citizens you all can be respecting the rights of everyone, including the Christian beliefs as well.
Adrian Aguinaga Remember, judgement day will fall upon us all, ignore me in this world, and I will ignore you when you are next to me, in front of my father...Jesus
David Finley Taking down American flags everywhere but this is acceptable in today's society ?!?! As an American, and as an American family filled with generations of American Veterans that have fought for that American flag and every walk of life's freedoms here.....I am highly offended !
Elyse Pearl Steer These comments show how disgusting American society is, overrun by a toxic patriotic mindset. Your biblical hostility is one beheading short from being extremism. I don't know how you can spit hate on the faces of LBGTQ people, but remain saying "Love thy neighbor" every sunday.
Carol Epperley Why can't that flag be taken down becausse it offends me, but because others are offended by a Confederate flag, they ban it. Thank you for letting only a few minorities have the right to freedom of speech and expression.
Jane Williams Haddox I love when they decorate with the rainbow! It reminds me of the promise God made too never destroy the world by flood again! God is so good!
Owolabi Yusuf Facebook is celebrating Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone's 20th anniversary. Apparently the words Harry Potter, Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff change colors AND if you touch the house names and Harry Potter, magic happens.
Eugene Sant This is gay nationalism gone wild. Keep up The craziness...more votes for Trump. So sad for you to only have your sexuality To be proud of. Pathetic leftists.
Homer Futol I just watch what's the future on human evolution apparently we could all become mono-ethnicity the think tanks in the scientific community obviously forgot the gay people 😂
Jane Birkin Incoming trigerred comments by the conservatives in 3..2...1
Sandate Mary Bible also says.thy shall not kill,covet thy neighbors wife,steal,adultery,.hate,judge, dishonesty, and the list goes on and on......
Craig Hill Yea let's celebrate perversion, and let's do it from the highest point we can find. Surely God can see it if we shove it up His nose!
Veronica Bruce Mike Claypool, they all blaming Donald Trump for America' s demise.America's downfall is immortality.and this is just the tip of the ice-berg.
Birgit Gordon When I read all these hateful comments I could throw up. How are the words of your national anthem? "The land of the free" ?????? It must be a joke!!!!!!
Gary Hughes And you wonder why the Democratic Party and the biased media behind them keep losing elections? You wonder why they have lost over 1,000 elected offices since Nobama was elected? America is fed up with the left.
Anita David We are in sodom and gomorrah we are in the last days. Goodbye CNN, ur promotion if this will make u 1 of first to go to. World run be satanists why else this flag there.
Matt Howell This offends me. Take it down. It's not the United States of Gay. Fly it to the left side with the rest don't take down the main flag to get attention and think you're special. No one's angry but if anyone else raised a flag someone would raise hell
Kechi Otta All the haters commenting be like they are the most righteous, holiest, most perfect Christians in this world. Won't be surprised their list of sins is more than even an atheist sin. 😕😕
Mike Claypool We will get the judgement we so deserve. You will be made to care at some point. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the Earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning. Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, Alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city, for in one hour is thy judgment come.

The Texas senator he'd worked the phones all weekend trying to win support for the Senate health care bill.

Michelle Hopkins DeLeo Think we citizens need to work the phones all morning telling our senators not to pass this. Also, does anyone else think the post with this article doesn't make any sense grammatically? It could just be me. It is the middle of the night and I have barely slept.
Joe Kalicki Maybe if these Senators had to actually live with the healthcare bill they want to pass they wouldn't be so quick to vote for it. But of course they get their own separate healthcare so why should they care about anyone else?
Lorraine Hodgson Republican priority is having the President sign the bill on the 4th of July (great optics) rather than if their Bill is good for all Americans. No debates, no Town Halls where they can see what their constituents actually think, no explanations, other than double talk around issues, but let's get it signed on July 4th. Congressional Bill had 17% approval and Senate Bill isn't much better for middle and low income Americans.
Roque Coral I hope for the American public's sake it doesn't pass but if it does, Republicans are basically handing over the 2018 mid terms. This bill will not only result in millions of Americans losing healthcare coverage but premiums will rise(without a mandate, healthy people won't be inclined to purchase health insurance), people will be receiving less benefits from their healthcare plan, & the very wealthy will receive huge tax cuts.
Diane Collum God help us all if this bill passes. It will hurt me and it will hurt you unless you are very wealthy. Trump does not care about any of us and this bill proves it. It will only make the rich richer.
Matthew Baughman Wow, you have to be pretty divorced from reality to want to "work the phone lines" to rob millions of their health insurance.
Mary Reed 58 countries have legislation mandating universal health care, along with 90% health insurance coverage, and 90% skilled birth attendance. We are alone as a country allowing medical insurance and big Pharma dictate our healthcare. Don't think that several of these politicians are not in their pocket.
Scott Aaron Evans I just want to ask, did they even read what was inside this so called bill? I know in the recent pass they said they didnt even crack it open to read. But they are and most of politics is pretty much a cult following. They must say Yes Master and follow the rules by their fellow mates .
Barbara Jane So how did those phone conversations go. Yes I know it will kick granny out of the nursing home when she meets the new caps but it's not your granny so don't worry. Yes I know it will kill some children when we deny them the expensive medicine they need to stay alive but honestly. Don't you think they are better off dead. And just think of the massive tax breaks we will be getting. You know it's all about the money so vote yes You are a disgusting piece of human waste.
Missy Davis Take note: the biggest cuts won't occur until it is too late to feel the impact before the 2020 elections . . . That should tell you something!!!!!!!!!!! The tax cuts for the wealthy starts immediately though.
John Gannon Obama you did nothing about the Russian hacking until just when you were leaving instead of in 2014 when it was first noticed! I hope the Republicans don't touch Obamacare it will help get better than 5-0 for Republicans
Ernest Murphy Look into the face of a Nazi mass murderer. He probably would eat your babies if you gave him the opportunity. Even by Texas standards, he is a monster.
Cathy Ryder Thomas This whole bill if passed will be the biggest step backwards this nation has taken since November. The republican party has been waltzing it merry way towards removing any positive action taken in the 8 previous years. This could erase much of the social safety nets put in place in the past 50 years.
Carol Mccannon So he "worked the phones." What did he say to his buddies or bribe them with to make them support this bill??? If they cave, they're wimps, weasels, chump groupies, and total evil mean people-mostly white old men who all get their health care paid for by us.
Brian Nicas I find it quite ironic they are "crafting" this bill at the Koch retreat who has their hands in legislatures pockets stuffing them full of cash!!! Might as well call this bill the anti America healthcare Koch Tax reform bill!! Pure sickening his republicans can think what their doing is remotely good for the majority, not the top 2/10ths of a percent!!
Stephanie M Teran Although this bill would be devastating to me and my children as a single mother, there's no point in worrying about it. If the bill starts to fail, Russia will just come in and somehow make it pass any way. Screwing Americans for the second time since November.
Brian Correia Everyone needs to get on the phone and call their Senators for the next 3 days and stop them from passing this bill. There's a reason why they are pushing to pass this by Thursday and the house to pass it by Friday. Because they know that when they go home to their districts, their constituents will be against it, and they can just say, "oh what's done is done." This is not a healthcare bill, they are taking your tax money that is currently be used by your parents, grandparents and kids, and giving it back to the 1/10 of a percent of the wealthiest families in America. Your premiums WILL NOT go down! On top of it, it doesn't take effect till after the 2020 election, so their bet is that you won't notice it till after you vote next election. STOP THEM BEFORE ITS TOO LATE! Call your senator NOW!!!!
Pat Fisher So how much money is it in the bribe to vote yes or how much the lobbyists paying you to vote yes and screw the people more and more politicians you work for the people not corporations remember that when people go voting for your next term
Shano Thomas It's not going to pass! If for any reason it does, America will be screwed BIG TIME!! The only people it'll benefit are the rich!
Naomi DC The republicans should pass their death panel bill. The red states who benefit from government welfare need to feel the pain. They feared death panels they got death panels grab a straw!
Craig Schlinger I hope this passes. Would love to see all thos that voted for these idiots loss their health insurance or have to pay more for it.
Charlie Baldwin Tax cuts seem to be at the heart of the repeal and replace call. Health care reform is isn't possible with our leaders current priorities.
Pnar Bradford I wish the media would have published the 400 fortune companies which will get tax cuts if#trumpcare passes. We would know them and boycott their products,do not work for them and sell their stocks, etf's till they get bankrupt
Elisabeth Hillock Sen. Cornyn, you are an idiot to back this bill. Stop caring more about your "friends" staying rich, and getting richer, and REALLY LOOK at who your constituents are! Want to continue to be a Senator, vote for US, not for THEM!
Dana Collins It's not healthcare.Stop calling it that.Wealthcare for the rich is more accurate

The company has lost roughly 17% of the stores it had in January.

Fabian Tepezano And I thought trump said he was going to fix the economy, create jobs, destroy Isis, and make America great again. I guess fat orange men are known to be liars. Sad!
Hodges JL Sad. The internet sales and people feel the need to have designer names all over their garments to impress people who don't pay their bills have caused the loss of many jobs!
Douglas Brantley Have they considered hooking up with the Made in America company? If people could count on Sears selling only American products I bet they'd be awesome again.
Cassie Zanger Eckert They closed the one in my mall. Not surprised. It looked like you walked into a store straight out of 1985. Nothing at all looked appealing. Looked dirty and run down. Shoppers are looking for what's current and aesthetically pleasing. I can't believe anyone is surprised about this.
Nick Pettersson That's what happens when you let go of craftsman tools. That was their bread and butter.
Pilar Brown He so busy saving measly small coal jobs but can't save numerous retail jobs which is the real bread & butter of the US economy. 🙄🙄🙄
Jo Ann Clark I think they did it to themselves! Their customer service is non existent. I don't buy from,them,since 1987 and I used to always shop there.
Charline Taylor Really. I loved me some sears my husband had an account there use to buy sooooo much much. There had it mailed. Alot of my children's clothes. Their toys their pampers when they were infants. They are now 50 and 48 you knew that was a long time ago. I use to avoid shopping especially in Manhattan on the Christmas holidays. Everyone fighting and pulling items from each other in the big stores. I use to love to see the packages come to the house. Ah those catalogs. Sears J c Penney and Speigal. Ah the good old days. That is when I could say make America swell again.
Joe Hegarty Well what did you think was going to happen after Obama crushed heavy industry and manufacturing jobs? Low paying retailers are next!
Peggy Elliott Poenisch Sears has been restructuring and trying to hold on for years. I haven't shopped a Sears in the past 40 years, and I shop at Kmart maybe twice a year. Prices, no matter which stores you shop, are getting ridiculous. I spend most of my money at farmers markets, thrift shops, yard sales, and online community selling sites.
Gilles Des They only have themselves to blame for stores closing, the last straw with them was when we were shopping for furniture and we went to their Sears central store, we waited and waited for service and not one single person came to see if we needed assistance, we couldn't find one single person, so we left and bought our stuff at their competitors next door, good riddance I say.
Paul Stuart No surprise. Last time I went in one, they didn't have the tools I needed. And it was a dirty dump. Customer service was no where to be found. It's hard to make a profit with a shopping experience like that.
Manuel A Paris-Botega Don't worry. Trump will bring them back along with the coal jobs and Blockbuster Video Stores because MAGA.✊Who needs an education & technological advancement, when you can just time travel back to Post Reconstruction America, where your ideas were on the cutting edge of the looming Industrial Revolution. This is fake news people. Very fake.
Russell Brown Almost everything is overpriced at Sears. Not surprising that they're closing more stores.
Rizwan Rizwi This is what happens when you hand over a retail Businness to an investment banker without any retail management experience. Destroyed an iconic American brand.
Wayne White See what happens when you purchase products through Amazon. Don't blame Obama or Trump. Sears Roebuck has been struggling for years, Since the eCommerce era started. The Sears I worked for closed down about 5 years ago.
Gloria Ferrara The quality at Sears has gone way down over the years. Also experienced a horrendous customer service experience. It's important to have the right leadership in place otherwise this eventually happens.
Vincent Lanzetta Tripoli More people are shopping "ON-LINE" ... it's quicker, you don't have to deal with crowds or pushy sales people and your purchase is delivered to you. Now, some fools will blame TRUMP, when they should blame technology !!! Douglas, there WAS a store called MADE IN AMERICA ... it went out of business, because people didn't shop there ... maybe (with the internet) it might have a chance, if they tried again !!
Pnar Bradford I wish the media would have published the 400 fortune companies which will get tax cuts if#trumpcare passes. We would know them and boycott their products,do not work for them and sell their stocks, etf's till they get bankrupt
Aliya Reeves It's been real Sears...don't feel bad Macy's is right behind you!! Online shopping has taken over...maybe they should just strictly sell goods online...
Jeff Lann I worked for them in the 1990s and wasn't impressed with the higher management. I know people claim Martinez saved Sears but in reality he set in motion the chain of events that got us to where we are right now. He started up a lot of the crap like "do more with less" and "lean" concepts, both of which have been proven colossal failures time and again. Ended up with so many layoffs that customers were literally walking away from sales and employees having to work harder and longer to try and make up for it. I ended up leaving for greener pastured cause even in the late 1990s the writing was on the wall. They had gone away so far from what they once were that it really didn't hold any value anymore, they didn't stand out anymore, they became just another Walmart/KMart/Belks/JCPenny and ultimately couldn't compete.
Marie Russo No worries, Trump will fix it lol. He's bringing more jobs 😒.
Melodie Blankenship Sears has lost billions of dollars since 2010 and continues to bleed out. Isn't it ironic that the original mail order company is going to be killed by today's version of mail order--online shopping?
James Bachmann Forget about the coal industry. Retail jobs are going byebye.
Chuck Scharrer They know how to close stores. How about eliminating some Vice Presidents.

"All joking aside, Stephen Colbert could be a formidable candidate," writes Dean Obeidallah for CNN Opinion.

Marc Degnan The man is a genius, and not just in a comedic sense. He has brains, understanding of the issues, personality, a following and (something that the current wanna-be dictator has none of).... integrity. I'd vote for him in a second
Jenny Crawford Colbert would be great,but Al Franken should run. He has years of experience now in govt and is also extremely funny. He could also crush Trump in a debate.
Camron Iannalfo Unfortunately this is true. Not saying Colbert isn't necessarily smart enough but celebrity culture has now made its way to the White House. Dems should just put up Bill Maher already!! Charismatic, liberal, intelligent, tough-talking, straight-shooting, celebrity - this is the anti-Trump the Dems have been looking for!!!
Preston Mote No. Unless liberals want to lose again. Find someone who is willing to talk about class issues and then maybe the dems have a chance.
Nate Kelly Ladies and gentlemen, what you are witnessing here is the implosion of the self-subservient leftist ideology in America. Give yourselves a pat on the back, because you've done a darn good job of supporting Stephen Colbert giving himself one.
Loretta Luglio One so called celebrity in the White House is enough. I do think he'd be better then what we have (minus the narcissistic tendencies, nepotism, autocratic leanings). There should be no short cuts to the presidency. Get the proper degrees, serve in public office, serve the people. Then run.
Matthew Williams You are all are so full of BS. You ask "if the Rock will run, if Oprah will run, if Colbert will run," but you never ask if Bernie Sanders (the most popular politician in the United States) will run. Mainstream media news is no longer the source of actual journalism, just ratings.
Kimberly A Challa I don't think Colbert was serious about it. However; I don't see why not. The republicans have had 2 b-list actors so why can't left? Personally; I like the idea of Tom Hanks. 😊
Barbara Kaffee Atkins I wish people would stop suggesting celebrities as the answer to our political issues! America, stop being obsessed by tv and film stars! Hasn't Trump taught you a lesson? Try choosing a qualified candidate!
Becky McDaniel Cole Ignorant People have made the Office of presidency and the White House, a joke. It doesn't matter who will run, in the next few years, because the job isn't being taken seriously enough. I blame both parties for this crap!
Mahesh Kollipara Me too..but You may ask me why am i getting away from Facebook, I'm getting into a new Job, Software development, really there is no time for me, if i find a little time N space i'll be coding and learning n training developers and Develop the application ASAP ....BYE BYE
Pat Roberts Jenny...Al has ethics, a conscience, a grasp on reality and an understanding of politics as it applies to "we".......he would not stand a chance running in a Trumpville nation where hate rules.......we just have to wait for reality to set in with the koolade crowd before we ever see any changes............buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Heng Qing Zhu I like the man, but it much easier to see all in the side line then in the game your self! But after President Orange, I highly doubt any one could do worst hen him!
Pablo J. Diaz Ramos Please, we already have had TV figures (including the actual joke) and look what they have done. Please choose WISELY for the sake of our country.
Gary Hughes Yeah, go ahead and run him. It won't matter who you run. After 4 years of a good economy, low unemployment, and secure borders he'll destroy a candidate pushing transgender bathrooms.
Scott Sanford One President without any previous political experience is quite enough, thank you very much. Anyone who is serious about running for President in 2020 that has no previous government experience needs to be running for state or national office next year and have at least some experience in government before running for President in 2020 if they want my vote.
George Rosa Ah hahaha... Colbert would win 22% of the vote... he's not clever, mildly informed and has an ability to sound arrogant not matter what he says...
Mike Bull It would be a wonderful thing for Trump supporters for him to run. The liberal elite speaks for a small percentage of our country.
Jeff Apan I hope all these celebrities do run for Democratic ticket improve chances for another Republican president. Splitting votes is the best way.
Vernon Maynard I use to get up and follow cnn at 400 am but the show is a joke any more. Chris only has his democrat view it wouldn't matter if a Democrat political servant had a smoking gun in his hands chris would say a Republican put it in his hands. The show is a joke now ,will go back to watching fox. Nuff said.
Joe Bushey Bahahaha!! Love it!!! They are really digging because they have no message, no leader, and can't relate to the American people... cnn I hope your "opinion " works out!!
Richard Keyes One more thing Trump won the seat 💺 😂 fairly he didn't need the illegal immigrant vote but he is way out of his league.. Cnn Trump will never win 😂😂😂😂😂😂
Ben Capuchin Hey lefties, I know you all are coming waaaaay out of left field right now, but your desperation is showing again. First Oprah, then Chelsea, now this... smh. You still seem to be laboring under the impression that this about personality and one liners. What you are seeing now is the rejection of the democrat policies of the Obama administration. That's why all the celebrity endorsements, the billion and millions spent, and news outlets like this one acting as the ministry of propaganda for the DNC, have failed in the last three election cycles and four special elections. You can sprinkle all the glitter you want on the turd that is democrat policy, but it will still be a turd. America isn't buying what the democrats are selling. Add to this all the madness of intolerance, hatred, and violence against free speech, gender identity politics, and the other assorted insanity coming from the left, and people are fleeing from the democrats. The democrats are that one uncle you don't leave the kids alone with right now. Get a clue, or don't, what you guys are doing right now is working out great... for us.
Ray Tang He certainly would do a better job being president than the current occupant. But I highly doubt he is serious since he has a good gig going now and he had once before registered as a presidential candidate in only one state so as to show the absudity of superpacs and wasn't really running for office.
Steve Harrod Anything is possible ...look who just won the electorate in November. Just stir up a bunch of hate and fear .. tell working and middle class Americans how much you care for them . How you and you alone can fix everything ..because you're like a smart person .. how you can fix the system because you've been gaming the system . Blame everything on Mexicans and Muslims. Shiiit. Hello Pennsylvania Ave. Truth . We just witnessed it .

At least 66 Philippines soldiers have died and hundreds have been wounded since the conflict began -- the highest military death toll in recent Philippines history.

Myles Mas Wounded soldiers in the hospitals are eager to get back into the fight. There are infighting between the ranks of Maute, not to mention the 200+ dead terrorists. So I do not get the reference "Bloodied and broken" you're trying to feed the public. 🤔
Stephen Patrick "After leaving Corregidor, MacArthur and his family traveled by boat 560 miles to the Philippine island of Mindanao, braving mines, rough seas, and the Japanese Navy. At the end of the hair-raising 35-hour journey, MacArthur told the boat commander, John D. Bulkeley, “You’ve taken me out of the jaws of death, and I won’t forget it.” On March 17, the general and his family boarded a B-17 Flying Fortress for Northern Australia. He then took another aircraft and a long train ride down to Melbourne. During this journey, he was informed that there were far fewer Allied troops in Australia than he had hoped. Relief of his forces trapped in the Philippines would not be forthcoming. Deeply disappointed, he issued a statement to the press in which he promised his men and the people of the Philippines, “I shall return.” The promise would become his mantra during the next two and a half years, and he would repeat it often in public appearances". Along with the great men and women of our past I would like to say. We owe the Philippine people the same compassion that was once shown for this land and its people! We should not and can not forget the past ! If it were not for the Philippines America and the west might not be the land it is today. We owe a debt to the Philippine people! I want to say I am sorry and I hope and pray for you with a heavy heavy heart ! ✊🏻
Ayse Ordu What a joke. Suddenly isis is all over the place. We only started to hear from them3 - 4 years ago. Under the cover isis muslims get surpressed, killed throughout the globe.

Günter Wahl There might be migration of fighters too since the war in Bosnia when Saudi Arabs joined, then Chechnya when they lost against Russia once only for the self government of their own province they became Legionaires but also who are the influential islamics oligarchs beneath Malaysia, Indonesia who will hire the hands for a non productive republic, Duterte wanted so see the winner in Russia but not correspondent to american international law,
John K Gaddis It was only a matter of time before Duterte lost control and terrorism infected the country. Karma has a strange way of working itself into history.
Hen Ry Mays Amazing how the Filipinos in America and the Philippines support in general Duterte and Trump unconditionally. They consider themselves good Catholics , go to Church but turn a blind eye to Dutertes past of murdering people with no trial - throwing off a helicopter for one . And they have no issue with Trumps bigotry , racism , womanizing , and communist ties . Bible toting hypocrites all

You said nothing about when Obama ended some terror asylum restrictions, by allowing asylum for people who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” material support of terrorists. 34. You said nothing when the national debt doubled under Obama. 35. You said nothing when 9 times the Supreme Court unanimously overturned Obama’s expansive use of Executive Power. 36.

Kimbo Y. Laurel I know many Filipinos are complaining about this CNN report on Marawi but sadly, many members of AFP(Armed Forces of the Philippines) have no training in urban combat. As for ISIS, many of them already have experience due to travel in Iraq and Syria. Worse, some of the ISIS members are from Marawi City which they know the city deeply.
Verdugo Farm ISIS are Gay MUSLIM Arm Forces of the Philippines are not fighting totally with GAY MUSLIMS but by the Muslims funded by the Drug Lord and the Liberal Party who are CROOKS PUBLIC SUCKERS in the Philippine Island...CNN are just Crazy Nonsense News mostly Bad News are FUNDED by the Enemy of the new Administration
Olatunde Michaels Could this be the reward for Duterte's hot insult to Obama last year??? ( just joking).. Cos America is alleged to have created ISIS.. Look at Syria today, where america shot down Syrian plane for targetting ISIS positions in their (Syrian) own country!
Joy Jones In Nigeria more than 15000 soldiers have died in the battle with Boko Haram. They are in alliance with the ISIS. This terrorists don't think they are killing people's loved ones.
Nick Vespa No one finds it suspicious that some yahoos can just pick up some weapons and challenge a trained military? Duterte better wise up...and he can start by stfu challenging the U.S. then expect to run to Russia and China for help.
Jamique Williams You're worried about I.S.I.S? You need to worry about that psycho Duterte. He just has people murdering people who may or may not be drug addicts.
Cris Bengtsson YES there's a war going on in Mindanao (Marawi City) but life continues everywhere else in Philippines. We are sad and in deep sympathy for our brothers and sisters pressed in between the conflict but we will never be shaken. This war has been there for years. It's a headline now because of Islamic States' influence.
Bobby A. Luraas Nobody knows who they are or is it a coupe where they took land and are trying to hold it because they should be dead "he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword."

Baraka Lako That's just amazing! you've invaded Iraq over a lie! causing the destruction and deaths of over 3 million souls and the list still ranking till this day, you've ruin a country's infrastructures. all was sponsored by the poor American hard working citizens money! via "taxes" and now you want to deport these poor iraqis back just when they though they now safe in America! "wow" this is just amazing. #So shameful.
Quinn Martin With high probability there will be current/future terrorists among these folks, with much higher probability there will be many, hundreds even, people that the Iraqi government will hang. A no brainer, even for federal bureaucrats. Thank you ACLU!
Henry RA They had a stable government until POTUS decided to save them. Now, they are being robbed of all forms of dignity. Shame on Uncle Sam and its bigotry. this is what you get when you make America your friend. BETRAYAL.
Jerry Berard The media is now openly practicing open activism for the socialists Democratic Party! The talking points are flowing through the ABC networks like an over flowing cesspool! The so called journalist reporting the news reek with negativity and bias ! The media seem to support illegal immigration which has resulted in hundreds of murders and crimes every month by MS13 gang members ,democratic thugs wearing masks that are destroying property and attacking anyone that disagree with the their agenda! The media and the Democratic Party are not supporting Christians , our military or our police ❗️ They think they are above scrutiny claiming they can judge their selves and hiding behind freedom of the press while at the same time spewing lies ,hatred ,race baiting and embellished news❗️ Time to call them out❗️
Adam Muhd This is what happens when you vote a nutcase for president. As bloody racist as he is, it is also a big irony to how he likes potraying himself as a good american when he condones shootings,bombings onto middle east. Bloody hypocrites, be prepared to face God's wrath for slaying innocents and kids just for the hope of invading the whole middle east and its oil preservation. 😡
Sam Jacob For all you miss informed people these are Assyrian/Chaldean Christians. That don't have a country. There not Muslims. You can't send people to there death to a country like Iraq Islamic extremist country. Think. Before you talk get your facts right before you judge grow up. what happen when the USA did not let the Jews come over world war 2 they went to France and so on 2 million. We're killed don't let history repeat its self.
Jade Vomacka What about Pelosi being removed? Is there a point at which family members step in and let her know that she's not fit to serve? Everyone ends up having to have, "the talk" with their parent or grandparent. Pelosi children-The time has come, multiple times. She gets fewer questions right than a person being quizzed after a concussion. Trump is the president dear, stop getting so angry at Bush. Be a Grandma Nancy, that's fun and fulfilling as well.
Mark Rubello why do we have laws? if laws don't matter, does this mean I can slap an ACLU representative in the face, without consequence? this is ridiculous. illegals = breaking laws = they have to go.
Mark Stanley So that's like 0.0001% of the people in America but yet like 90% percent chance someone targeting America would come from a group like this.... That's kinda like going back in time when they did the Mississippi burning and saying having the G-men flood the town didn't do anything to stop the violence.

The family is seeking a little more than $2 million in damages, which includes $20,768 in funeral and burial costs.

Jared Stinson Why are all these "family members" just now in the picture.. this dude was homeless... how about you take care of him prior to death or mistaken death..yeah thanks...
Luis Hatchett That's ridiculous! I can see reimbursement for funeral costs, and other expenses associated with this, but two million is Greed! There's absolutely no reason for asking for that much....
Alan Montgomery The story headline when you open it says "family buries man wrongfully ID'd as son" but on the feed it says "buries man wrongfully ID'd as dead". So in the article, a family was mistakenly told a dead man was their son, but on my feed, a family accidentally buried a man alive, which was far more interesting. Utter stupidity and woeful incompetence or brilliant click bait?
Jeslin Well, you were all living in nice homes while your so called son and so called brother was homeless and was feeding of trash and now you want $2 million coz the cononer cared less for a "homeless man" who is a complete stranger to him than his dad/sister did ? The coroner was given a chance to do good to a dead body, he failed. You both were given a chance to do good to a living man and you failed too. Shame on you.
Annie Lynn The amount of money seems a big high but for everyone commenting about not helping him before this... how do you know they weren't or the reasons he ended up homeless? Don't judge with a lot of info not part of the story.
Beck Gene I am now learning how hard it is to care for someone who ia mentally ill. You do the best you can and it will never be enough. Your patience will be tested all the time. All in all love is just too powerful not to give up. You love them unconditionally but it the end, you can't make them do things to better themselves. It has to come from them. Let's not judge his family for letting him be homeless.
Amy Leigh Adams If he was so loved by his family as the article/family claim, how did they; upon seeing the corpse not know it wasn't him? I would know if it were my family member or not because I actually know what they look like...
Stefan Puffer So let me get this straight. Their son is homeless and now they want to cash in? They even saw the body before it was buried. They don't even know what their own kid looks like, didn't bother to help him off the streets now suddenly want two million for their grief? This is a family as greed as CNN is fake.
Colleen Culver-Jaffe I am so sorry for the angst caused by the misidentification. The family should be reimbursed for the funeral expenses. Any monetary award beyond that would be a burden to the public coffer, and would provide no relief to the family. The suit for millions is greed in its purist form.
Robert Geller To those lambasting the fact they're seeking tortious damages, these damages aren't merely a way to get rich, although that may happen. Most importantly, they provide a disincentive for the wrongdoing party to continue doing what they did before in the way they did it. I.e., it helps teach them a lesson. Sure, the mayor can call the coroners department and lecture them, the press can make them look bad, etc. but when the almighty dollar is involved, actual change happens. Whether the amount is excessive is in the eye of the beholder, but it's worth noting they likely won't get $2m and may settle out of court for substantially less (even in the hundreds of thousands). This error by the coroner is inexcusable. They are charged with one of the most important jobs in the world, one where a mere oversight can mean emotional and/or financial catastrophe for people. No one should have to endure this, and damages like these are guaranteed to set into motion serious procedural changes in the department that led to this grievous mistake.
Eric Small So...coroner couldn't ID a guy that the family members didn't even realize wasn't their kin. If you can't even tell your own son from a random stranger, you probably don't have a leg to stand on here.
Carol Krab Yeah 2 million if case like that. They rather killed your Son secretly. Maybe claim What is reasonable price for your grieft. Half million I think to start one broken life. And Thanks your Son is alive. Did you claim the life insurance of your Son? Then might concidered
PJ Bassey Family indeed ... wished they spent the $20k on their son/brother instead of leaving him homeless to eventually 'die'. We are such a pretentious specie. Why spend so much for funerals?
Deanna Boetsma-Feringa Hmm, my thoughts are that the guy was homeless and had mental issues but yet no family member took him in or was in charge of his well being. Not sure why he was identified by finger prints only and not give a viewing for positive identification. I think this family should be reimbursed for their out of pocket funeral expenses for sure, but 2 million for pain and suffering for a family member they allowed to live on the streets? 2 weeks after "he" was buried he shows up. Just not seeing the $ amount, sounds like a greedy lawyer!
Keirn Thomas This is America at its finest. 2 million dollars for what? You buried someone who wasn't the right person to begin with. What does that say about you, the family? How can you bury a brother/son who isn't your own? Greed is never a good thing. The most y'all rightfully deserve is what you spent on the funeral. Trying to act like y'all care now. Y'all didn't care enough to recognise the man you were burying wasn't your relative. Utter disgrace!
Joan Walker They should have given him a home in the first place. This story pisses me off because of the homeless man's family. What are they suing for? Money for their suffering? Crap!
Audrey Ann Sometimes mentally ill people don't want help. Families can try to help and either they refuse entirely or for long periods of time. It's impossible to say what the full story is here.
Hamza Yousif Mirza I hope now that their mentally ill son is "back from the dead" they'll appreciate him. They've been given a chance thanks to the coroner. They should be thankful for this mistake happening.
Nick Guerrero 😒 so they cared about him so much that they let him be homeless. Now that he's dead and there was a "human error" they want to cash in. Riiiiiight, hopefully the judge can see through their BS and toss the case.
Jay Vineyard So I keep seeing the term "wrongfully" but do you mean "erroneously"? Or maybe even "incorrectly"? As I read this article I can't help but to notice how out of place this sounds.
Philip Heath Feel bad for the situation, but civil rights violation. They even admitted they couldn't recognize him prior. I have to wonder if they saw dollar signs.
Marisol Estrada $2 million isn't enough! Even if he was homeless, he was still his brother and they still loved him. The amount of grief they must've gone through doesn't have a price!
John F. Wozniak They should get triple damages for sure. I hate the adversarial justice system because they practically have to seek seven digits to expect just that.
Jenny Lynn So they want to profit off the guy because he isn't really dead. Ridiculous. Accept fair reimbursement for the funeral costs, and embrace and love the man who is now proven alive as much as u pretend to love him at his misdiagnosed death.
Jen Seung $2 million is greed. His family is going to pocket it. Like everyone said, they should just be reimbursed the $ the spent & a little more for grieving. I also think they need to reimbursed those families & friends who spent $ for airline tickets! & gas $ for that person who drove.

You probably don't have a Remembrall, so here's a reminder that 20 years ago, the first Harry Potter book was published.

Joe Siris A remembrall wouldn't remind you about this. It only tells you when you've forgotten something, not what the something is. CNN can't even get fictional facts right.
Bobby Fuller In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the philosophers stone... Facebook is bringing Hogwarts Magic to life! Just type Harry Potter Gryffindor Slytherin Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff then click on the words! Or just click on the words already typed here!
Tricia Barton I read it with a small group of elementary school librarians right after it was published. We all read it in less than a week, and unanimously predicted a children's literature revolution around it. I read every subsequent book (after re-reading the entire extant books) and became a huge fan. I can't believe it's been 20 years since the first book and almost 20 years that I've taught elementary school. Thanks in rainbows and sparkles, JK Rowling, for making reading cool.
Mads Dahl Christensen Yes thats right right . JK Rowling was single mother Living on wellfare in Edinburgh Scotland back then . I remember Reading somewhere that she woud at cafe with baby buggy and that she wrote the first book on notepads in hand . She later transcribed the scribt down on an old type writer and Harry Potter was born . And the rest as you say is history . So congratulations with the 20 years Harry Potter 😊
Cinjim Motz Harry Potter Fans!!! Facebook is celebrating Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone's 20th anniversary! For today, the words Harry Potter, Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff change colors AND if you touch the colorful words... magic happens!!!
Aparup Aich If you type Harry Potter things, the color changes. Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw. Then, if you touch the words, freakin magic happens... Wow 🙂
Isi Schilling I remember that my mother gave the book to me as a gift for my ... 7th birthday. At first I was disappointed, because even back then I used to be very picky with my books. But when I read it I immediately fell in love with Harry Potter and Hogwarts. Such an awesome thing to came into this world! Thank you, Joanne K. Rowling <3
Terri Brodfuehrer Armitage They just said on our local new that if you're lucky enough to have an original hardback Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, it's worth $63,000.. only about 200 or so were sold.

If the Republican plan passes and Planned Parenthood leaves town, this mom says her best option would be to cross the border.

Scott Kelley I'm just here to watch total strangers on the internet lecture someone they don't know about how to live their life and whine about a couple pennies of tax money. Keep it up, fellas.
Amber Lyn Why can't she just learn to have safer sex? There's a lot more options out there. This is why we need sex education. Ever heard of spermicide? Keeping track of your cycle? Maybe even buying cheap condoms? Cervical caps? Hmmmm how hard was that? Also, if its for something else other than protection from getting pregnant, go to the health department. PP isn't the only place to get birth control pills.
Eric Ripes Two things. One not every job provides the best insurance coverage or any at all. Two stop thinking what is ethical and religiously when in comes to abortion. If there are medical complications sometime the baby needs to be aborted. Okay third, not every job pays a lot and not everyone can be a CEO and afford the best healthcare
Matt Jones If Planned Parenthood were a viable business, they could survive without government handouts.
Victor Kalasa Planned Parenthood is far than just killing babies....but don't tell that to bible thumpers...👍
Robyn Wall There are places you can go online for birth control and pick up at Walmart or Target or another pharmacy. I pay $15 for a "visit " once every 3 months and my rx is $9 per month without insurance
Robert Hooker I'm pretty sure planned parenthood isn't the only place to get birth control...if she has a doctor or if she doesn't have insurance there are places available to her...
Josh Coy Remember that whole if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor spiel???..yeah about that #CNN helped sell that lie, don't think they wouldn't tell another to keep the lie alive.
Sharon Ellis-Konop There are over 13,000 non-abortion providing Federally Qualified Health Centers that provide whole health care to women and their families. And that number doesn’t include the tens of thousands of private and group physicians that accept government subsidy programs like Medicaid. Women are not desperate to find health care clinics, and they won’t be even without Planned Parenthood. In fact, the only thing Planned Parenthood provides that these other facilities do not is abortion. Should Planned Parenthood be defunded, women will still have access to great quality healthcare. I know that quality health care is best provided outside of Planned Parenthood. Example, PP wants to charge 200 for a pap smear for someone with no insurance at an income level of $25000. At Womens Health Eastside they charge $75.00. I'm tired of the public bring led to believe that PP is the end all of women's health care when in reality it is and always had been known for its abortion services. The real deal is they are huge donors to political candidates. Just enough of all this fear mongering.
Cody LoPresti Can she stay in Mexico then please? 😂😂 If she is so ignorant that she can't pay $9 a month for birth control (In some places) or doesn't even realize there are hundreds of free clinics for every one Planned Parenthood, we don't need a mouth breather like that here. 😂
Virgina Powell Just have safe sex or no sex. Be a responsible adult. I was a teen mom for my first child in hs. I totally learned my lesson. I had my other two kids in my 20's. I'm not ashamed but what on earth was I thinking to have a kid so young?! The point: think before you act. Regardless of your age. It IS as easy as its said.
Ryan Hannington Planned Parenthood Only gets 3% of its funding from federal money. They aren't going to suddenly shut their doors because of that loss. Besides, private donations, like the one Mark Zuckerberg made, will quickly make up more then the difference.
Matt Currie I admit, I just read the headline and I'm against government of any kind(etymology of the word "government" is mind-controllers). Especially, when their "help" requires coercion. But, I could get behind paying for liberal birth control.
Quinn Martin So we need to fund Planned Parenthood so a teacher (average salary $58.000/year) can get more frequent appointments and not wait so long to see the doctor. Welcome to the curent situation in Germany.
Steve Robinson Cross the border? How about cross her legs? I know that's unrealistic so I'll chip in a buck to keep her nocturnal liasons unproductive even if the Republican Party would rather have a million unwanted brats.
Jared Conway Women should have the freedom to make whatever choice they decide. You don't own her body and cannot judge what is best for her. Why force someone to have a child they don't want? The USA is supposed to be a free country.
Michael Thomas Moquin So the moral of this is she got pregnant at 16, then married hen had trouble conceiving and she wants planned parenthood to help her conceive? Do you know how many couples pay tens of thousands for invitro fertilization? So she is upset she didn't get birth control when she was a minor, but now that she's older she wants the same system to pay for help conceiving another child? She didn't want to be pregnant, the. It turned out well, now she's mad at the same system that didn't give her the birhcontrol without parents knowledge, but now she wants them to subsidize her effort on conceiving? This is goddamn ridicoulous, before people bash on me, read the entire article
Tony Lee It's not my job to pay for something she should be paying for herself considering that she's an adult. Or is she?
Trevor Stricklin Why do you idiots think Planned Parenthood is the only ones who provide those services? There are thousands of clinics throughout this country that do the exact same thing as PP does. Besides if PP can afford to donate $730,000 to Jon Ossoff's campaign then they don't need taxpayer funds to operate. If she can't afford a $1 condom or $15 per month birth control then she shouldn't be having sex.
Greg Prince For one you have to wait for the allotted time allowed by your insurance otherwise the visit is not covered, All those saying other options, well they have higher failure rate 😂 Not every one can use condoms, cervical caps , or spermicide, due to allergies , as for pills, not every once can use the cheap ones and it still cost for the Dr and check up..for cervical caps and pills, it's not a one size fits all. The ladies must have regular check ups while taking them as well, some women also take them for other issues other then BC ...
Kate Pare I have always had health insurance, even though it was not easy because there were times we had to pay for it ourselves. Until Obamacare my insurance did not cover birth control, I had to pay for it if I wanted it. I'm not quite understanding why she would have to go to Mexico for it, since you can get a prescription for 6-12 months for the pill, so plan for it. As far as Planned Parenthood, they use the private donations to lobby, how about they use them to survive.
William Chilton Planned parenthood isn't the only option out there. Also planned parenthood spent how much on the last election? Doesn't sound they need the tax payers to cover there expenditures.
Don Pressman Why did she choose to have sex w/o protection or a birth control pill when she was 15.She didn't need planned parenthood for that or ,if available, why didn't she seeek their advice
Ronnie Allen I am ok with this. Planned parenthood for is EXPENDABLE in terms of the healthcare bill. Denying people because of preexisting conditions and not having employer provided insurance-non negotiable!!!
Lori Andersen Beck Planned Parenthood will NEVER leave town, unfortunately, because they can survive without taxpayer dollars. Good grief. This is what I believe the Left calls *fear mongering.*

This hospital has been taking in the growing number of casualties since ISIS-aligned fighters stormed the city of Marawi in the Philippines.

James Shirley Barnes The world is in a state of Armageddon. < tiag0 > 2017-06-25 18:36 Those people that they call ISIL are not Muslims. They are criminals of the worst sort. Worse than David Koresh and Jim Jones who were not Christians, but criminals themselves. Something must be done on a tactical level rather than this carpet bombing. What? IDK. There's an idiot in the WH.
Kenny Chung Those dedicated nurses are angels of the Philippines Armed Forces. My respect to them and the soldiers. May God bless them all kindly.
Tracey Gallagher History starting to repeat itself. But the news is so fixed on Russia w the elections. Wake up people there is a crisis going on in this world.
Christopher White Lol this is how they push the US into the country. A few pictures with an Isis flag, a bunch of fake news reports then here comes the blue helmets.
Mogiaco James We will crushed them. I just hope our Government will learn and make additional Budget for our Armed Forces for building up its arsenal.
John K Gaddis It was only a matter of time. Call it what you will, karma has a strange way of working its way back to you Duterte! Stop killing your own citizenry though they might not be of the righteous.
Siarnaq Frost Yet there are politicians and idiot rallyist here who blames the govt for bombing Marawi. XD. We say we will stop dropping bombs and drop them instead @_@.

John Lewandowski CNN is in a deathbed tail spin since the Trump Russia Collusion story was a hoax!
Benjamin Hogge They picked the wrong leader hands down, just look at his positions on any topic lately. Daesh saw this as an opportunity in a power vacuum
Inder Kor The president of Philippines has a big mouth ,now he can deal with what ever is happing in his country America dont need to help..
Charlene Bukaw Any country that Trump associated with, ISIS is killing people. See he is building a Trump Hotel in the Philippines. Now Philippines is being prosecuted by The ISIS. Does anybody think about it? Look at Europe How many times they've bombed everytime Trump planned to or been to. Coincidence? I don't think so. It's Trump bringing all the bad luck everywhere.
Michael James Wardlow Rodrigo "I wish I could have raped her first" Duterte is on the case! He'll handle this!
Edward Jl Booth I'm wondering how Chechen fighters found it easier to get to the Philippines than Syria?? Philippines was for those that couldn't make it to Syria... I smell a rat
Mark Rubello CNN you've been quiet about Russia recently, could it be cause you retracted a story? fake news? 🤔
Ian Warren The ones fighting alongside Isis are called "moderate rebels" are they not? I thought they were good guys, or is that only in Syria?

Gloria Johnson Unfortunately we also got our own HOME-GROWN terrorists in the USA. So we can't point too many fingers..

Chelsea Manning joined her first Pride event since her early release in May as part of ACLU's contingent.

Rob Singleton Is it just coincidence that CNN toned down the rhetoric against Trump & friends since retracting a fake news story Friday? No I highly doubt it. Too late CNN. Can't pretend to be a legitimate news agency now. You're done for.

William Dale Fulk By the way, mental illness shouldn't be the grounds for bathroom selection preference. Let me spell it out for you in simple words transgender dysphoria is a mental illness because DNA doesn't lie were brain chemistry does.
Sarang Banne A lot of conservatives are mad that Obama commuted her sentence but love leaks that make democrats look bad. They like leaks that damage their opponent but hate leaks that shed a light on the abusive practices of our government. That's something we are all better off knowing.
Josh Bryant In real news: As we witness the far left Democratic party collapse, many ask "what's in the best interest of this party"?..the best interest of the Democratic party would be to distance themselves from the far left, to stop victimizing criminals and to stop criminalizing the white working class
Matthew Sweeney A good person who revealed to the American public important information is becoming more accepting and proud of who she is. That's a good thing.
Matthew Brock Don't let this distract you from the the fact that in 1966, Al Bundy scored four touchdowns in a single game while playing for the Polk High School Panthers in the 1966 city championship game versus Andrew Johnson High School, including the game-winning touchdown in the final seconds against his old nemesis, Bubba "Spare Tire" Dixon.
Jake Green This traitor should've got the noose for what he did. Instead he's a beacon of treason for the entire gay community. Wonderful. Exactly what they need, to be represented on media by this trashy POS.
Tony Velez Well being a gay Soldier I definitely feel this traitor should be rotting in jail right now.

Alan-Michael Shedd Three million more votes. Less than 1% deficit in three tampered States. Not 'her loss.' A theft. And a successful attack on America by a hostile foreign government.

Brian Davis Oh wow! So she was at the ACLU contingent & not the Wikileaks contingent? Oh, wait. Lol. Wikileaks wasn't there? Suppose that'd infuriate their Russia-Trump loving base. The Kremlin Elf is so mad!!! How delicious! Rot in hell, Assange. I mean: rot in the Ecuadorian embassy.
Aparup Aich The only fact I don't get it is like What's all this "Pride" about... Aren't they just normal people like Heterosexuals...This itself is creating a segregation..
Matthew Dowling I was just there! I think I did see her but didn't recognize her in the ACLU contingent! Gonna have to check my photos I took! Happy Pride, Chelsea!
Alan Holmes I find it funny that Obama pardoned Chelsea Manning, someone who's leaks quite literally put soldiers in harms way, because she came out as trans. Edward Snowden however, an American hero, no pardon.
Steve Richardson CNN is not completely fake news but it is biased therefore it cannot be considered a factual news agency because they do not report the news without their own personal opinions or agenda
Jónatas Machado All human beings (including all LGBT) receive their genetic material from one man and one woman having one father and one mother. This is a universal, gender equal, sustainable and non-discriminatory reality! Its quantitative and qualitative parameters are well defined: two; male and female! It is the same for fascists, liberals, marxists, Christians, Jews, Muslims, atheists, rich, poor, black, white, men, women, LGBT, INDEBTED, etc. Every child, without discrimination, deserves to live with its own one father and one mother, regardless how much they are loved by other people. That's why there is an objective, universal, rational and non discriminatory reason to promote the union from which all individuals derive their existence and identity. This union is more important than all possible sexual combinations and permutations. We need to promote it along with love, respect, commitment, responsibility and good parenting. The union of one man and one woman is important to the existence and identity of all human beings in all times and places. It should be placed above sexual preferences, orientations or impulses, for all childen's sake. Children don't organize pride parades. They just want us to value, protect and promote the union of mom and dad.
Rick Edwards Traitor deserter front and center... Too self absorbed to honor the commitment it volunteered for. Sigh.. Clinton News Network! Fake and falling
Jeremy J. Niles I'd really rather had never seen that person's face again....and that has NOTHING to do with gender identity. Thanks CNN.
Buttery Males A true American hero. She stands for liberty and justice. If you oppose what she did, you may want to reconsider what you think it means to be an American. Because it surely doesn't mean berating someone who had the courage to expose the gross wrongdoings of our government

For this New Jersey mom, the health care debate is personal.

Juwana Riggins Simon I don't understand people saying fake news. This lady and her son are real. How is this fake?
Kevin Rivers Wait, is she only paying 500 dollars out of several hundred thousand? I'd say she got some good insurance.
Amy Gilner Why bother to even comment if you think it is fake news. This is a very serious healthcare crisis for some families in the US who have children with life-threatening medical conditions. So go comment on Fox News and get off of CNN if you do not like it.
Jonathan Durré Lets talk about why the bill is that high. How much profit are the companies that make the equipment getting? What about the pharmaceutical companies? The lack of transparency on why a hospital stay is so much? Don't only go after insurance companies.
Osama Sayed The new healthcare bill is terrible for everyone except the insurance companies. It's terrible for patients most importantly, it's also terrible for doctors who now have to watch patients suffer from treatable diseases because the hospital won't admit them once they're in stable condition because they can't afford it. Healthcare may not be the best right now as it is but keep it as it is. Keep the Affordable Care Act. If it's not broken don't fix it.
Paul Tucker so taxpayers are now responsible to pay for 'rare genetic disorder' treatment?... really?
Cristina Mancillas Actually without insurance the bill would have been much higher than 231k because that is her insurances negotiated rate, without insurance, she would have to pay the services at 100% and thast would be devastating.
Brett Hooks Guess good thing they have insurance. Trumpcare won't change their situation. So what point is being made her against Trump? Seems like this is more proof how Obamacare failed by pricing out so many people that would be in worse shape then this family.
Beverly Votta Ever request an itemized bill??? Especially a hospital invoice! After red lining bogus & duplicated charges with a billing rep I shaved over $4,000 off my bill! The rep was overwhelmed, taking just about an hr to complete this task. So, after all is said & done she says... "I don't know why you should care about the bill, you have insurance" Pausing for a few seconds my response was... Would you rather pay 20% of $17,000 or $13,ooo? Thinking hard she went silent for awhile then said..."Oh, I get it" I don't think she did, but hey why should she care who pays the bill!
Candi Dehart Under the ACA people lost access to vital drugs. Insurance companies were not required to cover these drugs but they had to pay for all the so called free service. What about those people? They don't matter to democrats.
Dawn Fucci Vigliotti Everyone who has or knows someone who has a child with special needs (especially an adult child) should pay very close attention to what's going on right now. You stand to lose the most and your loved ones will be in more danger than others!
Ryan Hannington First, I wish the child a speedy recovery and the means to experience a normal childhood. Do not ever be deceived by what you see on a hospital bill when you have insurance. Those rates drop drastically when the staff find out you are uninsured. They are by no means "affordable" but this tiny fact is a big part of the problem. Why does it cost more if you have insurance? The cost of care and materials doesnt change. The medical facility knows that an insurance company will pay the negotiated rates they agreed to in order to get patients while those fees are unaffordable for anyone who is uninsured.
Sharon Mathews So if a parent wants their kid to live and you don't want their kid to live, perhaps we need to just have you go personally watch the kid die from the lack of healthcare that this nation CAN absolutely afford to provide. But I guess we will just continue to give those poor billionaire ceo's their desperately needed tax breaks and allow the corporations to hide their assets in offshore tax havens. How will that kids ever pay those medical bills? Guess those kids should have lived more virtuous lives. Who's going to hire a defecting toddler? Stoopid child labor laws! (Sarcasm)
Natasha Thomas Reading these comments are so bad so let's do this, if you do not want to pay for this poor child who needs our help, how about we round you all up, have you all move to Mississippi or some horrid down south state, have Trump be your president so we can get back to business. Good lord it's called humanity people!!!
Elin Thorn Blessed to live in Sweden where we have national health care which is heavily subsidized by taxes. For children it's fully paid for by taxes and so are medicine. I wish The same system for the US so all families could feel safe and taken care of by their government.
Lorna Lawrence The child's disorder was diagnosed in utero. The parents chose life. Health care appears to only apply from conception to birth. The child is born with a pre-existing condition so good luck with health care!
Kish H. Pat If just 231,000 of the millions of obama and Hillary voters donated $1 each to this family, they wouldn't need insurance at all. But of course liberals don't really care about healthcare or other people unless someone else is paying for it.
Corey Judie That's the problem with the Federal government meddling in healthcare. They can only plan and account for issues that affect a large majority, not rare cases. A large central government cannot account for 360 million individuals, nor was it designed to do so. A free market would be able to react and provide exactly what people like her stand in need of a lot faster than the government can.
Chad Romaniuk It is so very sad. I keep scratching my head at this. Those that voted for trump knew he was going to try and dismantle Obama care. This is very disconcerting how NOW after he was voted in , that people are now waking up and realizing how healthcare is getting screwed. It is very sick to think anyone has to suffer, it truly is sick, but what is happening now was forewarned , many , many people tried to educate voters but Americans went to the polling stations and casted their votes
Kim Fregia You realize the prices are about 1,000 percent inflated for the services offered, compared to other countries. For example, In China, India, Spain, the UK, etc. the cost of an MRI is about $60.
Kalli Bunch It's not fake news. I go through the same thing. My nieces, other family members, friends, other children I have met go through the same thing. Health care is a serious matter and should never be a struggle for people who have to worry about surgery, medications, lifetime chronic illnesses, etc...the cost is extremely high, and it keeps poor people poor and kills them faster sometimes than their conditions.
Josh Tucker The bigger item to address is the behind the scenes contracts that insurance companies tell doctors they must bill for certain procedures. So while insurance shows they paid $900 of the $1000 bill they actually paid $100. Many doctor offices would rather a cash paying customer to avoid the filing of insurance paper work and to get paid quicker. Insurance has become such a massive scam it's pathetic.
Susanna Duran Republicans don't care and Trump is on his 31 day of golfing so he could care less about sick children and the plight of the family. Don't bother Republicans, they want tax cuts for the rich, the wealthy are the real victims. The fat cats are hurting.
Tami Zwicke My son has Down syndrome. His therapies are 15,000 a month and those are basic therapies so he can be the best he can be and go to school and hopefully be a productive part of society. Speech is his main one as he is 3 but only says a few words. He also wears ankle braces which need to be checked 2 times a year which are 1,000 a piece and new ones each year, ear tubes which need to have surgery and have new ones placed every 2 years, docs appointments at least 2 times a year, eye doc two times a year a specialist and glasses, and ear doc 2 times a year. Also a geneticist. My son is also con sidered healthy with no real serious health issues. Many ds kids have heart surgeries, bowel,feeding tubes and more......also My son will def have more health issues as he ages. Normal insurance pays barely anything. I am a teacher who works fulltime his dad as well but neither of us can cover his costs. He just wouldn't get any services because they are like $100 A session minimum some more and that isn't private those are public therapists the cheap ones.
George Tarek I'll repeat what I've been saying and what others are saying but majority of people don't want to listen. The insurance is not the problem, well only a part. It's the fact that this bill shouldn't even be close to that. That is insane and should be illegal. In America, subsidized healthcare will only drive these bill up even more. We need laws to bring these prices down where a hospital can't charge 40k for a 2k visit.

Activists carrying signs declaring "No Justice No Pride" and "Black Lives Matter" appeared in New York, Minneapolis and Seattle, among other major cities.

Andy Humphreys Lol, that's cute. A victim group protesting against another victim group in order to determine who gets to be the biggest victim. You can't make this stuff up. 😀
Bryan Baccari That's fine, they are welcomed to march there too. We are all for Justice. What happened to Philando was not right.
Nitra La Flare Good to see! Black lives matter is a movement everyone can be involved with. The only way we'll see change in the future is by sticking together and that's the first step in seeking justice.
Pat Stump All he had to do was follow the instructions of the LEO who told him x 3 to leave the gun. What is it with these people who have no concept of the word " comply??? " Do they gave a death wish??
Noel Zeigler Oppression is intersectional. If the LGBT community does not also address race issues, that means that white gay people are the only ones who are completely liberated while gay people of color still struggle for other reasons. Is that truly progress for the gay community, or just progress for some? None of us are free until all of us are free.
David Pressel If that same jury found the officer guilty, they would be saying justice was served. But guess what, the jury said otherwise. Those that say they want justice, really could care less about justice, they want the person to be found guilty no matter what.

Christopher Hines Where is the justice for 131 police officers murdered last year......??
ショート 強太 I can see why the BLM movement exists but it's seems like they pick and choose what to be mad about. You never really see any of them protest black on black violence. I mean there are black people dying in the US all the time but it's appropriate to protest if they were killed by a white person. I get confused if they think that black on black crimes are okay. Can a BLM supporter enlighten me? It just doesn't seem consistent.
Thomas Wilkins Regardless of sexual orientation White liberals have shown a blatant disregard for all people of color. This no more evident than the nationwide gentrification of Black and Brown communities. White Gays and White Lesbians play a huge role in the eradication of those communities .

Gloria Johnson You got Chartered Schools, right? You now need Chartered-Jurors.. Because those in Phil Castille's case should have NOT been there. They were PRO-GUNS and PRO-Filming Cops.
Sue Phillips That's one of the silliest things I've seen yet . A group who screams about being allowed to stand up for your rights interrupts another groups right to stand up for theirs when the two have nothing to do with each other . I thought they were about only scaring their opposition into silence but I guess they want everyone silent too unless you're only supporting their cause . It's like a 5 year old yelling pay attention to me. Unless the people involved with the movement were fine with it but I didn't read that they were . Maybe I missed it

Almustapha Aliyu Thank you for all your concern Nigeria is very beautiful country blessed with every resources a man need , we have everything fertile land , natural resources, water resources human resources , the biggest aid you can give us is to stop your banks from accepting stollen money from our country , and as for those who are labelling all of us as scam ,retract your statement because those people do not represent 1% of nigerians , we are very good and diversified people , and we are proud of who we are .
Eugene Semikobyla Lots of uneducated illiterate mass polluting the planet. In the countries which can not produce anything or support those people. It will only result in famines the world never saw before or mass migration which will destroy the rest of the world.
Pary Skoutariotis Gee thats great keep over populating we got plenty of food,fertile ground and rubbish tips and congested roads to accommodate, like a filling cup there will be a time when it spills.
Kevin LeVar Bryant And this is the greatest fear of bigots and the "Make America White Again" "keep the foreigners out" clan in America today. Mix anything with white and white is gone forever. This is not a racist post, this is factual. Sad but true
Peter Akomaye Ayabi Great country, no matter the negative comments, Nigeria like any other country has its challenges and will excel someday no matter how long it takes.. Keep to your negative criticisms while we keep trying to make our country great for Nigerians and the whole world. #Proudly Nigerian..
Alfred Mulya More poverty and social injustice would occur. Countries in Africe r known for their resources yet so poor in economics development due to civil and tribal war..
Tejiri Yarhere Africans are victims of the white slavery either physical or mental.This is what we continue to suffer.The stats could be an advantage but seems if the leaders are thesame in their ways and approach,It would be a disaster!!!. If you have been to any part of Africa or Nigeria then you might understand...but if not....dont come here assuming you know because the media is always right like we saw in the last us elections then commenting on things you know nothing about.Read and leave. We were just fine until slavery came knocking and found its way through some greedy individuals.Yet we are still the blessed and rich enough to cater for far more than that stats.The future still belongs to us.We need to act now.
Rodante Sayo Nigeria needs to update rule of law and corruption, as well as good governance, they should not be worried about population growth as it will contribute to their economic growth if their resources will be properly handled.
Fran Antwi When someone is scared to be in the minority, number wise, economic wise and political wise they turn their fear and panic into lies and propaganda. If they can add population density by various continents surely they ll be exposed.
Louis Swanepoel Good for them! I'd like to see them reach that goal without food assistance and aid that they are getting from other countries. I fear they will not be able to sustain a population and the rest of the world won't have any extra resources to spare with their own populations depleting the strained food supplies we already have.
Olivia Hauser Ummm do some of you not realize thats beacuse many lack access to medical care including birth control and many women have no knowledge of family planning because many of these countries are poor, women are not allowed or dont have the money to go to school, the topic can be taboo, and because many young children are sold as brides to much older men so their family can eat and those men rape them and force them to have many childern. Some of you need to educate yourselves on the economic, societal, and cultural issues that propagate that population increase in many African nations. Virtually all less developed nations' populations are rapidly increasing because of similar issues and because people lack the access to basic medical supplies such as birth control.
Celestine Chidozie This is good news. We are open to life. We love life, we don't contracept babies, we don't suction them out of the womb, we don't euthanize. We may have economic problem but we are not naive as not to know the distinction between "being and Having". Fear not UN, Nigeria is not scared of babies we want more of them.
Ssemusu William Cox Idiots against large populations are already envious about the mass development of India and China . Until your nukes detonate until you know that earth needs more humans, but since majority of u will be LGBT , you'll be put on the list of endangered species. Africa is still too large
Marcus Joseph If only there were organizations who's sole purpose was offering a variety of health services to 3rd world countries to help these people help keep their populations down. What's that? There are? But their funding is being cut? Why? Because they offer contraception and abortions? But isn't that the point? {shrug}
Brian Metzer in the country that can afford it the least, breed like rabbits and let the world worry about how to feed them. I see a Sally Struthers commercial coming soon.......
Kamendra N. Mishra The report does not include declining trend in population in Japan, Europe, USA and some developing countries. Yes Africa is likely to increase. But rest of the world, including China and India will stabilize or show declining trend.
Dennis K Wafula Every white supremacist I mean "white nationalists" biggest nightmare, these people are complaning about white genocide and this just pisses them off more 😂 soon they'll be a minority even in america
Robert R Torres Quality, not quantity. If population was the determining factor in quality of life, then the ILLEGAL ALIENS would stop invading the U.S. and head to China, India, and Nigeria.
Paul M Winters Nigeria recently surpassed South Africa as the continents largest economy. Now if they can just get rid of massive corruption and exremists threats from Boko Haram and others, they will be primed to be a huge player in the future. They are a potentially strong & emerging outsource market.
Utee Atakpa Kese This is why I see Nigerians everywhere I go. Sometimes I think I'm the only black person somewhere, but often wrong. Example is Benton. 😂

"You can't call yourself pro-life if you're not willing to be part of a system that protects the most vulnerable." As lawmakers push to get a health care bill through the Senate, this New Jersey mom is speaking out about it.

Joe Stefanovich Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're fuc*ed! George Carlin
Shane Nelson Donald trump effectively got poor white people to aid in the destruction of their economic class with the promise of acceptable hatred and racism.I'm not sure if that shows how slick trump is or how gullible people are.
Maggie Downey They are not pro-life, they are pro-fetus. The Republicans want to kill off the sick, the weak and the elderly so they can run ramrod through the social security funds. It isn't only about health insurance, they want the bank. #WallStreetintheWhiteHouse
Jeremy Davis Let's not forget, being pro life means supporting the lives living under the bridges we drive across every day to work. Pro life means pro life, not just pro baby being born.
Tmra Young I'm pro-having affordable healthcare so babies and other people can seek and obtain the medical attention they need. I'm also pro-understanding that a woman should be the only person with the authority to decide what happens with her body.
Marie Ann Pro life, want to ban all abortion, and yes am aganist abortion, but hey how about free health care for all pregnant woman, theses MF don't care about no one but themselves, only the rich.
Jenny Melenciano The current system isn't collapsing.... it's being sabotaged by the current administration... smh.. the current bill isn't a "healthcare" bill, it's a giant tax cut for the richest in the nation.... and don't keep believing we are broke... impossible..... look at our Army!!! We have plenty of money, it's just being funneled in another direction..... #wakeup #theyareplayingusagainsteachother #healthcareisaright
Stanley Sonny Adamczyk And when the current system collapses, as it was designed to do.what is CNNs solution to save it, or the Democrats? Fear mongering for political gain is easier than finding or even helping find; a solution.
Terry Watson Brave mom and baby. These pro-life Republicans need to understand that if they are going to be so pro life towards unborn fetuses then this is a lifetime commitment to the child we see, hold and love in front of us.
Sara Young Agree. Those lifetime caps are a death sentence to some Americans. Studies have shown they don't lower premiums significantly at all, because so few people go over the caps, but for those who need protection from lifetime caps, it is a life saver.
Heath Osborn "Pro-life" movement finally being exposed for the frauds they are. "Pro birth" is the only term that fits,because they could care less when the child is born, as they are cutting benefits and programs left and right. Like George Carlin said "Pre born you're fine,Pre School you're f***ed"
Wes Schmatz Thank you President Trump for saving America and doing exactly what you were elected to do.
Yoosuf Rasheed Trump is a business man he looks for profit he don't understand public health care or people's need, he never needed the public health care or education system so he can't understand the needs of a nation but can understand making profits, he thinks USA is a new company that He got under his emperor of businesses so he is making it profitable business by reducing or cutting off common people entitlement, probably he have done same with all his business when things were not going great and it worked out well. USA have a CEO now to run the country not a president, remember a CEO always keeps rich connections and favors them but never deals with everyday line staff issues for that they have got excuses no time, it's not profitable enough yet bla bla blah
Lanny Mullins Yes i can be anti killing babies and pro not paying for you to go out not work and have a good time. Im pro people actually taki g responsibility for their iwn lifes And it not costing me a fortune in taxes.....
Jeremy Lawhern So you want it both ways? You want to be able to kill babies but also save them?
Akshay Natu I'm pro-choice and also pro-death penalty. I cherry pick the best things from both parties and form my own ideology. Unfortunately, that also means I'm completely screwed come voting time.
Shana Segat They aren't pro-life. They are pro-forced birth. They don't even care about the health of that embryo, fetus nor baby. Just gotta make sure it's born and that women know their place as chattel.
Malcolm Gonzales I see roughly $500K in in that child's medical bills; now who (reading this) wants to say, that's enough money, pull the plug. I sure couldn't. Remember this, one day you'll be old and you will be sick.
Hamayun Sikander I live Uk's NHS health system where people have free operations. They don't pay monthly money to insurance companies. When people of USA will demand this from their government????
Sharon Clydesdale This is the Democratic party's talking point the Democratic party screwed our Healthcare up they are not helping to correct the problem they caused this bill is not a final bill yet get your facts straight pay attention to what is going on and stop listening to the Democratic talking points it's time people woke up the Republican party did not screw the healthcare up the Democratic party did and that's who you should be upset with cuz they're sitting back laughing at the problem they caused and blaming the Republicans
Jim Ash How much is your child worth? Do you really want to put a price or co-pay or a deductible as a value of the people you love? We have to be better than this, don't we?
Jason Michael You are either pro life or pro abortion it's that easy. Choose adoption...plenty of options other than murdering your child. But I suppose those minorities aren't going to manage their own numbers are they...disgusting
Ruth McDonald Bedeian GOP had sevens years to come up with a great alternative plan or fix the Obama plan. They did nothing but constantly try to destroy the Obama plan. Because they do not believe that poor folks should get any help from the government and really sick people should just die and stop costing insurance companies so much. They don't care about families having to make hard choices. And they don't care because they will never be in that position. They have the best insurance and its free to them.
Adriana Lucia I am with you, my daughter was born with a chromosome defect, the bill was 1'700.000.00, she is amazing and every moment of her life is priceless, we didn't ask for her to come with this problem, Her life doesn't have a price, what they should do is have the president pay his taxes
Yesenia Salguero Now we really know that pro- life for Republicans means if you are born with abnormalities that exceed over a 1-2 Mil cost than in this case is ok for baby to die, ummm, so this is better than pro-choice. This is such hypocritical standard. This is not pro-life. Is hardly pro-birth and after that if you're very sick than you are not worth to keep alive. Insane!

Passage of the Republican plan would be "a moral outrage that this nation will never live down," says Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Daniel Glover So Bernie Sanders who discriminates against christians and is currently under FBI investigation thinks that he has a right to Lecture others?
Alisa Wood Early on I donated to Sanders campaign but, now things aren't adding up with him and there is something very fishy about him. For example, why on earth would he vote NO on putting stiffer sanctions against Russia? The vote for stiffer sanctions on Russia would have changed nothing with the nuclear deal with Iran. It appears now Bernie Sanders and his wife are being investigated for Bank fraud. And I find it very interesting that of all the places in the world to go on a honeymoon he and his wife go to Russia/ Soviet Union?
Richard Heilman In defense of Donald Trump : Try to keep this in mind, Donald Trump did not steal your money. Donald Trump did not raise your taxes. Donald Trump did not quadruple the price of food. Trump is not stirring a race war. Trump did not leave any US soldiers in Benghazi to be slaughtered and desecrated by Muslims. Trump did not send the US Navy to fight for Syrian Al-Qaeda. Trump did not arm ISIS and systematically exterminate Christians throughout the Middle East. Trump did not betray Israel. Trump did not provide financing and technology to Iran's nuclear weapons program. Trump did not give our military secrets to China. Trump did not remove our nuclear missile shield in Poland at the behest of Russia. Trump did not shrivel our military, and betray our veterans. Trump did not cripple our economy. Trump did not increase our debt to 20 trillion dollars. Trump did not ruin our credit, twice. Trump did not double African American unemployment. Trump did not increase welfare to a record level for eight years. Trump did not sign a law making it legal to execute, and imprison Americans. Trump did not set free all of terrorists in Guantanamo bay. Trump did not steal your rights, violate US Constitutional law, or commit treason, hundreds of times. Yet Trump is being ripped apart in the news, non stop. Barrack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton and the criminals occupying our government, are not. The media is the Democratic Party. Save our culture. Stop listening to them..!! Please copy and Paste
Timothy Larsen Hey CNN, why don't you spend the next three weeks covering nothing but this idiots possible involvement with fraud? C'mon boys! I've seen you do it with "other" politicians, really dig in there with your investigative reporting team!
Will Billy Oh no fnn, sounds like the "Jig is up", sounds like the house is starting cave in on you! Have you thought of a response yet to Breibart News request for comment? Have you thought yet about how you will respond to federal investigators? Have you decided which country you will flee to? Sounds like the Jig is Up FNN. ,,,!,,
Misty King Jane Sanders is under FBI investigation and Bernie possibly used his influence as a senator to get an approval for a loan for the big banks he hates so much. They lied....the college no longer exists.
Julio Nunez The same medicine one takes in USA that cost hundred dollars , cost few dollars in South America and those medicines are made in USA or Puerto Rico USA. Then some medicines made in Puerto Rico and send from Puerto Rico to the Mainland are send back to Puerto Rico at a higher cost that in the Mainland. Something is fishing in the insurance and pharma industry.
Matt Caddell Isn't Bernie actually under investigation by the FBI for bank fraud? Isn't he the same guy who openly, and unconstitutionally, gave a religious test to a Trump appointee? Isn't he the same person who couldn't protect a microphone, but was running for the job of protecting the country?
Lisa St-Georges You Americans will be screwed if this bill is passed and then you'll be screwed again when the tax reform is passed.The orange one is only looking for a tax cut for his businesses and his personal taxes.
Rayna Rogerson The ACA is dying. It's unsustainable. I'm not sure what we'll do when our COBRA runs out, but we're using it because comparable coverage under the ACA would cost us almost double. I remember a time when COBRA was the most expensive option.
Alisa Wood All I know is progressives and Democrats have to come together whoever the best supported Democrat/Progressive candidates are against these corrupt Republicans!!
Jim Mohr Democrats passed Obamacare with lies and forced people to buy it with the threat of IRS fines......and then bragged about it's popularity! When do Democrats begin burning history books?
Daniel Barza Let the people take their medicine, so to speak. They voted for Trump amd that comes with serious consequences. Let it hurt so badly that the next time there is an election, people start lining up a week in advance to vote this man out of office and out of everyone's lives.
Brian Whittle But in all reality. How many people do you think, holding up the health care signs, behind Bernie there are actually on Obama Care ???
Max Climb All I hear and read is negative comments on the Republican plan and nothing about how badly it is going for Obamacare right now in several states. Providers are pulling out, premiums up 43%, etc. Do Democrats not really see these things happening? This is why the Government has no business being in the healthcare business. Neither side will ever get this right. There will always be someone or some condition left out.
Kirk Gillis Who cares about Royce Heath. Totally irrelevant. And not that i agree, but even if you believe that Sanders discriminates against Christians, what does it have to do with this so called health care bill. Why are Trump supporters incapable of staying on topic and using facts to make a point. Constant deflecting to Obama this, Hillary that, and other unrelated radical right fear mongering will not help the consevative platform.
David Nixey Under investigation for 10 million dollar bank fraud hmm. Lose a bet that if you support Hillary and she wins all will be fine? Hmm, the lower the water gets in the swamp the more dems are what they say they are against.
Steve Smith So keep Obamacare. When Insurer leaves your State ALL YOU WILL BE PAYING FOR IS THE CARD, NO INSURANCE*****Hey this country can't afford everybody on Medicaid.
Scott Bolinger he never presented a way to fix the health care, and he has no idea of how to fix it, so why would he even say anything about it. He needs to go back to his coloring books.

Ryan J. Farrick CNN's policy towards Bernie Sanders: Is something negative tangentially related to Bernie Sanders? If yes, proceed to blast Sanders' name across article and title. Is something related to both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton? If yes, downplay Sanders' role while gently stroking the former presidential candidate's ego. Is Bernie Sanders speaking out against a Republican policy? If yes, portray him as a champion for liberal values until one of the two former scenarios arises. Do not mention Sanders' continued efforts to reform American politics unless they coincide with convenient CNN talking point.
Jason Michael We'll be fine. Bernie should concentrate more on making sure no other employees are terrorists...that is if he wasn't involved...I still think an investigation into that is warranted
Greg Wyndham We have succumb to discouragement, disheartenment, knowing all too well the incompetence of our leadership. It is not as though we could have anticipated their selfish antics. We thought they understood democracy, as if this were credential enough to matter. But they understood only power as coercing the narrative: of utilizing popular rhetoric and applying it subsequently in their oratory. We must break the acceptability of this political etiquette. We must rethink our particular participation in power.
Jacqui Graf Smith Yes Bernie, saying he's going to introduce single payer, as if that will get passed by the GOP, once again, Bernie all talk and NO he and Jane are under FBI bank fraud investigation..he is a fraud

Brooke Guinan joined the FDNY in 2008 and three years into her firefighting career, she came out as a transgender woman.

Brandon Smith This is the gayest thing ive seen all day. What a freakshow
Jeffrey Bleeker She is a firefighter saving peoples lives and trying to save peoples livelihood of what they worked hard for and should be looked at as such. You people are disgusting and need to grow up.
Kate Perry This story belongs on Ripleys believe it or not!
Marcus Joseph So basically, those who insist everybody sing the praises of first responders and their deserved respect are having a crisis of conscience right now? That or selective ignorance based hypocrisy Probably best then not to mention the thousands of estimated transgender people in active service as a cop, fire fighter or in the military
Alfredo Reyna But science says he is a man. So what's the confusion all about?
Mary Nameth So many negative comments for someone that saves lives everyday. I'm not going to particularly call her couregous - she's living the life she wants to live...but to demolish her when she's doing a huge public service...come on! This isn't a freaking beauty pageant. It's disgusting of commenters to treat her like she has to be "attractive" to be female. She's a heroine. Nothing but.
Yvette Enriquez Stuuuuupid haters. Wouldn't be a freak Show if she saved your child's life would it? What about all the transgender doctors and nurses out there? Freakshow for saving your family and friends lives? What about yours? Idiots. Show your pride!!!

Michael Norwood Homosexually is a lust of the devil is evil and it is wrong and it is clearly displayed in the remarks and the comments made by those who condone the sin. Homosexuality is nothing more than an evil lust and has nothing at all to do with love or equal rights and yet wicked societies like the United States and France have endorsed the evil act. Homosexuals live in their delusional world where they think it is normal for a man to lust after another man or a woman to lust after another woman. And they are blind to the fact that they are just misguided children of the devil who cannot even see how ridiculous Satan has made them look and act. So go and laugh and insult me for speaking God's truth but in the end the only laughing that will be heard will be that of Jesus. “The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭37:12-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Harvey Tan The pride parade USED to stand for something. It used to stand for various causes that affect the LGBTQ community. Now it is just another propaganda machine, misinforming its constituents.

William Caylor Telling the truth of what the bible says about homosexuality is not hatred, homophobic or whatever! The bible is the voice of YOUR creator! Christians are just relaying and warning what the bible says regarding what you have chosen for your life. God gives everyone a choice. They either accept Him or they don't, the latter not being a wise choice. Christians are trying to warn you, if you would just listen!

Here's how to tackle that sore throat, without getting slammed with surprise charges

Jessica Skow Naber The problem isn't providers trying to convince patients of a necessary test, the problem is patients who "know their bodies" and won't leave without a prescription for an antibiotic. With so many standards in place now, in order to prescribe an antibiotic the testing has to be done. And of course it's usually negative and they still throw a fit and DEMAND an antibiotic for their virus. If anything the providers repeatedly try to convince patients testing is unnecessary.
Dylan Lee The problem is that the healthcare industry is filled with people who are only looking for the money. I'm sure there are many health care professionals who will contend that. But they can't deny that their industry (in the US) is bleeding people dry. It's cutthroat, evil, and only looks out for number one. I'll happily change my opinion when health care is treated as a service instead of an industry. Until then, they are immoral, regardless of individual intent. If you participate in an unfair system, you are wrong
Tara Robicheaux What's most upsetting about this article is CNN saying "don't get ripped off at the doctor's office". The one big truth about this article is telling people that they are their own best advocate. It is up to the patient to get familiar with their insurance plan and how it works and who accepts it........and yes, asking questions prior to any service is smart. Doctor's offices are not familiar with EVERY insurance plan out there and what your particular benefits are. It's important to not assume that all doctors in this country are seeking to rip you off.
Mike Biagioni Glad I'm in Canada... we don't worry about this kind of crap.. lol.
Karen Sword I don't understand how this article even needs to be written. How America, the once shining beacon of hope in the world, has even one person that has no access to healthcare. How any American has to make calls and investigate before heading to the doctor or worry about a big bill showing up or deductibles and co-pays. Seriously? Let this sink in. Every other developed country can at least get up and go to the doctor without worry. Please don't tell me it's not "free" and that I have to hand over my hard earned pay in taxes - I am well aware how single payer works and I don't care. When I'm sick I go to the doctor. It's stress free and I can be pro-active about my health. How is America not the leader in taking care of its people?!
Casey Gargac This article is so inaccurate. Be an informed insurer! It's not the doctors office responsibility to know how your plan/contract covers and who....know your plan! It costs a lot of money every month to have so why don't people know their plans inside and out😑
Abiola Dada If you dont know anything about your illness, go to your doctor and dont listen to CNN advice on how to tackle sore throat that could turn to bronchitis and maybe death..😡
Robert Burrola I spent two to three hours or more waiting to see the dr and once I see him and it's over in 5 mins I get a huge drs bill plus so call surgery just to look into my nose . I get a bill later forcing me to pay $265.00 and insurance did very little to pay . I'm still struggling paying my bills and medical bills plus from the hospital bill from 6 years ago and still paying ... its nerve wrecking labs are very expensive too . I have insurance but they don't always cover everything . I once was told I met my deductibles and I call the insurance co that I have not met my deductibles I was very upset . As far my medication livinmer for my insulin the pharmacy told me it will cost me to pay $247.00 I told the clerk I refuse to pay and it's costly . I don't have the money to pay for it.
Candi Dehart Find a doctor that doesn't accept insurance and operates on a cash only basis. They usually charge less and don't do unnecessary tests. The other option is a subscription clinic. You pay a relatively small fee that covers most of your basic doctors office fees. Specialized care is extra.
Rosanna Frazier A lot of doctors and hospitals will let you pay on a sliding scale if you do not have insurance as well. Due to a billing error( that was later fixed) that our vsit was not covered. We were told the charge would be $60.00 if they billed us as no insurance. It was nice to know since we pay 150.00 a month per family member( no matter if we use it or not) plus a copay when we see a doctor. We could have saved $110.00 on that one visit if we didn't have insurance.
Nancy Nolan There are good doctors and there are bad Doctor Who rip you off. The point is that you do need to pay attention to what they are charging for. It is easy for them when insurance covers it., but when it is coming out of your pocket you think twice if it is necessary. You have a say in your own health, and some doctors just don't take the time to listen. If they don't, it's time to move on.
Hetal Patel Main keys of not getting ripped off -- 1) don't go to Dr's office 2) Get Medicaid- there is no copay, no high deductible, no bills. Use those money for luxurious life style !!!( Expensive cars etc) 3) Make medical school free. It's a complex thing. Hope people understand.
Rabia Hussain Contesting a bill isn't that easy. I received a very high charge for a medical test; I checked other sources to see how much that test usually costs and even after numerous calls to the service provider and the insurance company I didn't get a straight answer as to why my bill was 3x the average (for that specific provider in my state). Pretty much was just told to pay up because that's what was agreed between the hospital and the insurer in this case even though it want in line with the published rates!
Christopher Bowler I feel bad for anyone that has to worry about this. Oh you foolish Americans...
Joyce Murray You'll stay healthier by staying away from the Dr and trying some good old fashioned least give it a try before rushing off to the Dr for every ache and pain.
Dina Najar The best way is to stay far away from them, unless it's a yearly exam or an emergency situation. For most things, give yourself enough time and some home remedies and you'll get better on your own.
Will Billy Oh no fnn, sounds like the "Jig is up", sounds like the house is starting cave in on you! Have you thought of a response yet to Breibart News request for comment?

Jennifer McGlashan Larson Knowing and understanding the difference between a bacterial infection and a virus is helpful too. Antibiotics will not treat a virus.
Joanna Morales Don't call the doctors office to find out if we have a contract with them. We take hundreds of plans and I don't know them all. Call your insurance plan to see if we are in your network.
Betti Mike Everyone should be allowed to see the doctor when they are sick, without fear of bankruptcy. Everyone should be allowed to take their child to the doctor when the child is sick, without fear of bankruptcy. If these two things are not true in a society (as they are not true in America), then that society is unjust and needs to change. Don't let the Republicans control the conversation. Get out and show them what you think of their plan to take away healthcare from tens of millions of Americans...
Billy Brown Only in America do people have to worry about getting ripped off by their doctor. Thankfully I don't have to worry about that or worry about getting a bill for anything medical related. I live in a civilized country.
Steve Richardson CNN is not completely fake news but it is biased therefore it cannot be considered a factual news agency because they do not report the news without their own personal opinions or agenda
Clint Bell Finding a good doctor is like finding a good mechanic for your car or a good maintenance company for your lawn. Doctors these days over prescribe. It's their default response to patient complaints--just write a prescription and send the patient on their way. One reason they're so eager to do this is liability. They have to address the patient's concerns or anything they might find wrong with the patient during an exam. So for example, your blood pressure is reading a little high today, and your doctor puts you on a blood pressure med. But you've never taken a prescription med before... but it's okay. You trust your doctor. But then you start experiencing side effects, so your doctor prescribes medicine to treat those issues. And so on. It's a snowball effect. I work with the elderly and I see it all the time. Either an elderly person is on no meds or they're on twenty, and once they're prescribed the one, they're rolling downhill accumulating more. Sorry for the ramble and I know it's somewhat off topic, but it's a troublesome aspect of our health care system in the United States.
Stew Road If you get the free odummycare go to the doctor right away. If you are a hard working tax payer with 4,500 deductible you will try to suck it up and have suffer. That's the way the democraps healthcare works
Daniel Craig We need to keep up the pressure. Several key Republican Senators have balked at McConnell's bill to repeal and “replace” the Affordable Care Act. Senator Dean Heller of Nevada -- who will likely face a tough reelection next year -- said he couldn't support the bill. Deep cuts to Medicaid could jeopardized health care for 600,000 Nevadans. Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski are also on the fence. They're rightfully concerned about a provision to defund Planned Parenthood. Two others -- Rob Portman of Ohio and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia -- could go either way. Meanwhile, four conservative senators led by Rand Paul oppose the bill because it's still not extreme enough for them. McConnell can only afford to lose only 2 Republican senators. We can still stop this travesty. Call your senators, organize, resist. Lives are literally on the line. The Capitol switchboard is (202) 224-3121.

"There's no way we should be voting on this next week," one Republican senator said

Cristian Garcerant I think we can all understand this isn't about getting better healthcare it's about one man wanting to destroy another mans legacy. Thankfully some republicans have found their spines and put this country over their party.
Fabian Tepezano Trump supporters hate the affordable care act because they pay a little more from their paychecks to help out sick people who can't afford their healthcare yet they have nothing against big corporations like Walmart taking tax money right into their pockets? Come on most of you claim you're Christians. God punishes you not only for the things you do but for the things you don't do.
Karen Loveless I hope every Senator who votes for this horrible "Health Care" bill is voted out of office the next time they are up for reelection. Call it what it is a Tax Cut for the Rich not a healthcare for the rest of us.
Jeanne Barron Knudsen Republicans had time, seven years to be exact, to draft their own healthcare bill. I guess governing is a lot harder than obstructing. The Senate should take all the time they need to review this legislation; especially those up for reelection in November 2018.
Lorraine Hodgson They complained about Obamacare but there were over 100 debates and Town Hall meetings plus one on one interviews where Obama explained to the electorate. Also, over 100 Republican recommendations were inserted into the final bill. Trumpcare had 13 men sitting in a room secretly writing a bill, no time for debates or Town Hall meetings and the President isn't on TV explaining his bill. He spent months telling voters 'everyone would be covered (not access to but covered), pre-existing conditions would remain, would be better and cheaper and no cuts to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Services. Wonder why he's not bragging about his bill?
Jeremy Silverman Why can't they just give everyone in the country the same health insurance the Senators have?
Randy D Adler Just vote on they can kill it and then perhaps have a bipartisan bill that will be done transparently and with input from the American public. Sorry you old troll Mitch McConnell...and Paul Ryan.....Even your own Health Secretary realizes how toxic this is....
Nathaniel Patriarca Sad our leaders in this country no longer represent the people that put them in office but represent those that make the biggest donations or those that have financial backing to sway their votes. I wish they would remember why they are elected and who they truly serve which is the people.
Candy White Still cannot begin to understand why Republicans won't take the Democrats on their offer to work with them to upgrade the affordable care act, if Republicans drop the need to repeal? Why must Republicans mandate repeal and replace? Because of sheer hatred of Obama, a black president? Both parties represent Americans, all Americans. Compromise people!! Do your $&+#=+% job. None of you would make it in Corporate America where working on teams is mandatory and you get fired if you can't work within the team. I will never believe only 5 Republicans actually believe this secret health care is wrong for America. Just afraid they won't get reelected. Well they shouldn't if this bill passes. The rich can afford the tiny bit of tax they were paying, they never even notice.
Tish Sayler It is very clear. Multi millionaires get a tax cut. Everyone else gets nothing. People on Medicare lose benefits they have been paying g for for years oh and the poor don't get health care or have to pay the penalty for not having it. Regulations have been lifted on insurance companies. What's the problem?
David Fetterer How much of the wealth in our country is going to decide this, we all should know our politicians aren't going to make health care work. Follow the money. Why isn't the news media working this angle
Joe Flynn The best part is, there's a huge number of poor Trump supporters who use the ACA and don't realize that their glorious master is trying to take it away from them. Total dumbasses
Nicholas Tokulah Here was a question asked a Fox News Brit Hume that no one seems to have an answer for. And the question was "If there are no mandate or fines to get people into buying health insurance and there are mandates for pre existing conditions to be covered?? Then what's plan for stopping healthy people from buying health insurance only when sick" 🤔🤔 That question there illustrates the future failure of your current health care proposed plan.
Maureen E Simmons Trump ran for president to prove he could win (he doesn't know he really did win because he's still campaigning) and to erase Obama because he hated him. He also has to pay back the rich folk who put him in office such as his ego-stroking cabinet members. That's it.
Diane Green I hope the GOP Senators can put what's best for the people's health and welfare over blind support of the party. This should be a bipartisan effort to have affordable healthcare for all --- especially to include the elderly, the sickly and the poor--- populations that need it the most. Please do the morally/ethically right thing for your constituents---- NOT just for the wealthy and those in government offices!
David Squeege Weigant Senator Sanders has already filed a bill to replace ACA with something that would actually save everyone money. Medicare for All pays for all of the health care Americans would need and cuts the overhead of multi-million dollar salaries for Insurance Board Rooms. Even the necessary increase in oversight expenditures brings down the cost for everyone. True separation of Health Care and employment gives a boost to employment and gives workers the freedom to choose a job because they like the job, not the health plan. It would eliminate some of the bias against hiring women of childbearing age. It also places healthcare back in the hands of doctors and patients, instead of corporate beancounters (death panel A) or Washington beaurocrats (death panel B) by looking at medically necessary procedures instead of cash flow. of a for-profit company.
Adrienne Alexander Show us the real cost of a plan!!!! How much for a family of four making $50,000? How much for a couple under 65 with preexisting conditions ? Show us the real numbers!!! What guarantee do we have insurance companies will provide plans that are reasonable???
Angie Schladoer I thought it was wrong when the Republicans weren't allowed sufficient time to read the bill. I still think everyone needs time to read it.
Cheryl Moe The bill is a mockery of governmental ethics. They want to rush through a bill they really do not believe in. They keep. Attempting to dismiss the fact that they wanted to repeal for years but are forced to create the replace in a matter of months. Where are the adults in the room? Is the fear of not being reelected more of a reason to rush rather than finally sitting down working to get it right? This true of immigration reform, tax reform, human rights, ... Do What's Right.
Hodges JL What about cutting their healthcare? What about them paying for their own lifetime healthcare--they're making enough money. How many working people get to give themselves a raise and paid benefits like they do and they were elected officials yet they don't look out for our best interests? Why are people complaining or concerned. They have to tier benefits--but we shouldn't?
Sandy Basso Why can't we go back to the way health care use to be! If people need help,prove it, then let the states handle it! The fed's need to stay out of it completely. Let the states handle their own Plans. We don't need socialized medicine. Kiss your health options, good bye. Look at Europe, Canada. If you really get sick, you don't get the specialized treatment you need. If you are a senior, bye, bye.
Dianna Kim Scott The reps have done so many things that they condemned the Dems for! Take a look in the mirror guys! There are reps who say they are against the bill but only till they get what they want even if it kills thousands of Americans. Integrity, morals , ethics my a.s!
Joe Robine The Republicans who want to fight this bill . Think it's to generous. The Democrats think it's not generous enough . How about a compromise. Pass the bill the way it's written.
Greg Wyndham Everywhere observation is cheated by ungrounded presuppositions. Discounted is reason from reality; and for this, we are doomed to a an unpopular though equally plausible truth: that we are somewhat incapable of overcoming ourselves, our predilection for embracing only what corresponds to our presumptions.
Steven Munn What are the Republican Party so afraid of. When the ACA came out the democrats let them debate it for 17 months. They didn't even rise a stink when the Republicans added 150+ amendments. It even when voted on was bi-partisan. I can only guess that Donald Chump and the rest of the top 1% want their money quicker.

Nathan Smith Jr. CNN is always so late in reporting happenings these days. So busy worrying about Trump's latest trip to the toilet that they forget they're an international news organisation. Will be sticking to BBC and the Guardian from now on.
Derek Hershey CNN is Very Fake Fake that they deleted an article on Friday about conspiracies about Trump and Russia because it was too obvious. The owner of the company also is doing an investigation lololol. CNN = FAKE NEWS
David Seif I cant believe a story about a bunch of tourists dieing in another country has this bunch talking about politics very sad !

Ronnie Scott McIntire Fox reported this like 30 minutes to an hour ago, and I only know that from flipping between the networks to see who's losing their minds today. 😉

For the first time in nearly two decades, the White House did not host an iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Christian James Gregory You know... I'm an atheist, but even I celebrate Christmas and wished my mulsim coworkers a happy Ramadan today. Want muslims to hate you less? Maybe you should respect them and treat them like actual people. Just like how I didn't stop drinking orange juice just because we elected a rotten one as president.
Eric Barrera I don't see what the big deal is. I'm not religious at all. Nor do I bash it. But I thought seperation from church and state was a thing? Or does that only apply towards christians?
Joe Ciesielski Good. Our country was founded on Christian principle... Not islamic.
Jeff Nekuza Has any muslim country celebrated Christmas in their government seat ?
Jeanne-Marie Rosenthal Neuroth That's because cheeto is an idiot and probably has no idea WHAT Ramadan is all about.
Michelle Hunter All you haters tell me why he can go to prayer breakfasts and talk Christianity but can't carry on a tradition of celebrating Ramadan. This country was founded by people who felt persecuted in their own country bc of their religious beliefs. Yes, they were Christians but it was about religious freedom. And here we are now an intolerant and hateful nation.
Kristine Hogan Watry Who picks what religion this "country" is. We have freedom of religion that doesn't mean we are all Christian! Ignorance & hate! BTW I'm Christian and i feel disgusted & embarrassed that trump has done this. He is a racist idiot
Anthony Riggio Trump has problems with reality, so what else is new.
Stan Piznarski There is no doubt President Donald Trump will be in the White House for the next eight years. America is way better under his presidency, The economy is improving constantly ,illegal Crossing down 75%. M.A.G.A.. WINNING 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Sam J Marquez So what seriously cmon now I'm sure the Arab world is just fine with it.. CNN you are petty in every sense report the lawsuit against you by your employees current and past about unequal pay for minorities do that
Michael Rogers They will sell $110 billion in arms to the Wahabbist rulers of Saudi Arabia, but hosting a Ramadan meal is unacceptable to them. Wrap your brain around that one, people.
Chuck Deboe Last couple of times I was in Saudi Arabia they "forgot" to invite me to a Christmas celebration. So, why anyone, not Muslim, would host a Ramadan dinner is beyond me.
Cetenay Kaghado What does that say about Trump and his administration? Islamophobic to the core! No tolerance whatsoever to people who are not: Christian, wealthy, white, conservative men who deal in business. #ImpeachTrumpNow
Yaghoub Sharifi Good for Trump White House! Enough celebrating f**king Ramadan, the bloodiest month of the year. And also, Muslims are not even 1% of the US population, why should the government give a f**k about Ramadan or any Islamic occasion?
Cathy Smith It is an honor and also the responsibility of the president of the United States to serve and represent all of the people who live here. Celebrating our diversity is part of that privilege. Presidents of both parties have gladly participated in these types of events for many, many years. Choosing not to is ignorant, mean spirited and small minded.
Diane Collum Just another way Trump can divide the people. I thought a president would try to unite everyone but not this guy. He's only out for himself and his pockets.
Ronnie Allen How many countries you know celebrate holidays of ideologies that hate how they do things? When you go to their countries, they don't go out of their way for you. They know what we are. Celebrating Ramadan in America???-- Like inviting a reggae band to a klan rally!!!!
Bronson Naab He golfs every weekend and is still holding campaign rallies....while still having time to tweet all day. Yeah...working so hard.
Todd Joseph Last time I checked this country had 1 president representing all citizens: black, white, brown, christian, jewish, muslim, atheist, gay, straight, men, women. Not just the white christian straight ones who voted for him. And that is all who voted for him.
Veronica Neisser Our country was founded on the principles of freedom of religion. And, if we celebrate Christmas, should we not celebrate other religious holidays as well, to include all?
Ash Baucum President Trump supports American values, Islamic values are not American values. In America, we don't execute people for being gay. In America men an women have equal rights. In America men are not allowed to marry ten year old girls. In America we don't celebrate holidays of barbaric savages.
Mike Claypool What a ridiculous article. CNN, it looks as though your organization is in complete meltdown: CNNMoney Executive Editor Rich Barbieri has sent an internal memo to all staff instructing them that all Russia-related stories must be cleared by him or another high-ranking executive, following a Breitbart News investigation which forced the retraction of a fake news story. CNN...the most BUSTED name in news!!!!
Chelsea Pray Why is this such a thing? Separation of religion from state. Or not anymore so everyone can get offended? I'm really just overwhelmed by people these days.😱
Crystal Kucera For those screaming that the White House celebrating Ramadan is some kind of liberal conspiracy, you know that the tradition was started when George W Bush was in office and Republicans had the majority? G. W., for all his faults, actually had respect for others, even those who did things differently than him. He did a lot of wrong, but he was not a Xenophobe or Islamaphobe.
John Elwell And to defeat ISIS we need the assistance of Muslims on the ground here and overseas. But if we insult them, why should they want to do the right thing. It is obvious Trump does not want to do the right thing. Probably has a golf appointment to keep.

A 14-year-old girl was injured when she dropped 25 feet from a ride at a Six Flags amusement park in New York

Ray Atkins She was injured but transported to the hospital and had no serious injuries?! Who the hell did this article?! Were they drunk?
Rich Petrillo The Ride was cleared right after she fell. It was the Guest's fault, and no one else's. The ones she fell on should Sue the Family since he hurt his Back trying to catch her.
Dustin Adams Glad she wasn't seriously hurt. However, being there were no defects/problems with the ride and the fact that those rides go slower than molasses. At 14, I'm assuming it was some type of negligence on her part, so the park shouldn't be responsible. Would like to know the whole story though.. How SHE says it happened.
Sharon A. Knieper I admire the people who gathered underneath. I'd like to think I would but the idea of someone falling on me from 20+ feet up...
Holly Schulz Wouldn't have fell out if she wasn't trying to kick the tree branch.
Alesha Amber Bartsch Well if she hadn't been messing around. Which she obviously was, she wouldn't have fallen from the ride. Pure ignorance on her part.
Katie Marie Riley I've been on this ride numerous times since I was a child. Unless you are messing around there's no way that could have happened. The bar is clearly still clicked and locked in. I've seen multiple people say she was trying to touch the trees with her foot. This ride is safe if you follow the rules. Been on it at least 25 times in my life
Angel Murray Cotton I'm sure none of you have done something seemingly innocent at 10, 14, 24 years old that accidentally ended in hurting yourself or nearly hurting yourself. Ever. Because you make no mistakes. Good grief the comments from some of you. It was probably an accident on her part, not thinking completely logically like the 30 yr old person that she is not, and thankfully nice people gathered to help her. Can we just be happy she's ok? I just can't believe the name calling and people saying people should sue her.
Gina Miccio-Rogers Thanks to all who helped catch her and reduce what could have been deadly injuries. Thank God she is now safe and will be okay. I hope she recovers mentally from the trauma.
Steve Bancroft I rode the Batman in Illinois once, (Six Flag Great America) and my harness came unhooked mid loop.. lucky it was still buckled .. but scared the piss out of me.. (not literally)
Chad Grieser Why was she screwing around on the ride to start with? The tell you how to sit in those before you get in it. She either didnt listen, or decided it didnt pertain to her so she did what she wanted.
LuAnn Bauman Lopez APPARENTLY YOU HAVEN'T READ THE REAL STORY... She was deliberately trying to touch the trees with her foot. She caused her own injuries and the park should be suing her and her inattentive parents.
Susannah Eitleman It was the guests fault.... nothing was wrong with the ride and today I sent my 6 year old there with his friend to have a great day! He's now a happy camper and on his way home... 😊
Noemi Martinez-Cora Just knowing that people united to get her to safety is a blessing. She got the scare of her life. Teenagers are open to things with no thought of the end results. I am sure everyone has done what shouldn't be done. Just happy she is okay thanks to the good people that saved her. Lesson learned for her I am sure
Jeremy Finger The pod isn't even leaning. The guest appears to have been screwing around in all honesty. Even though Six Flags has a tragic history, they cannot be held liable for this one in my opinion. Why can't people just follow safety rules at amusement parks? That's like the one jerk on the roller coaster rocking the carts back in forth...If you don't follow ride rules you are not only endangering yourself but everyone else on the ride. Be Sensible!
Keith Landry I have ridden this sky ride with my daughters from when they were five years old to the present (they're in their teens). The only way to fall out of this ride is to try to fall out of this ride. While I commend those on the ground for preventing her injury, they were likely put in such a position by poor teenage judgment at best and reckless stupidity at worst.
Katharine Evans Story Town USA on route 9 in Lake George! This ride has been in existence in many forms since the 60's. Original owner Charles Wood had rules, adult accompanied and signage of not dangling feet in tree tops. I worked there 2 summers and I'm happy Glens Falls Hospital took care and she got very lucky with no injury.
John Glah Beth Hayes Glah, this happened at Story Town USA in LG, although the story states it happened at a Six Flags Amusement Park, which would be Great Escape...
Kimberly White Ok.. this ride was not moving fast. It looks like she made herself slip out of that seat and I'm sure there were seat belts that she was supposed to be wearing.
Jessica Seymore Im.sure those people knew exactly what they were doing when they gathered to catch her. Her fault or not, I'm greatful they were there and greatful ahe is ok! I'm sure she has learned her lesson. People need to stop being so nasty...what if it was ur child?
Barbara Robin Looks like the kid was doing something she wasn't supposed to do---but I'm sure her parents will cash in on it, even if it was her fault.
Kelli Shafer I've been to this Park tons of times and have been on this ride. Unless she had a health problem, she was messing around You don't just fall out of that ride.
Shaine Andrew They have them at cedar point as well, and they travel farther and much higher, like 70 feet high. No seat belts or anything keeping you in but your own will. Never thought they were safe especially with children that can get on without any supervision. They could climb right out of the side if they wish.
Patricia J Esquibel Harden Another person looking for a quick buck. Now her parents will go get the best lawyers so they can try and get millions of dollars when it was the daughter who created the problem by trying to kick the trees. But there were witnesses. Thank God for that who saw her kicking the trees. The park should sue the daughter and her parents for negligence.
Audrey Travis On the television broadcast of this story, the headline runner BLOCKS viewers from seeing the actual fall. And they keep showing it over and over again with the text completely covering the part that is most interesting: the fall and the save. Is there not someone in the editing room during the video playback watching? Producers are usually on set to move the runner above or below depending on the footage recorded. Film/broadcast 101.

There was a loud bang and the plane started shaking. It went on for two hours. That's when the pilot asked everyone to just pray.

Peter Murphy I'm a private pilot. Before every takeoff, I join my passengers in a brief prayer for a safe and enjoyable flight. It's on my preflight checklist. So far, it's working...:-)
Cassie Foster A lot of atheist coming out the wood works... but let's call a spade a spade. If you were on that plane you would have found God real quick lol Edit: Kanye's Voice--I ain't here to argue..Or here to convert atheists into believers I'm just tryna say the way school need teachers The way Kathie Lee needed Regis, that's the way I need Jesus 🙂
Jason Roy Now only if marijuana was legal that jet would have felt less nervous.
Gloria Johnson And people did not care whether or not the ones next to them were Muslims or whatever Race or religion one serves. Maybe we need more messages like this from the Pilots
Ryan Mosee Talking to an imaginary sky wizard friend isnt going to do anything. Id rather save my breath for telling those real people i love how much they mean to me.
Richfield Duku-Mensah I presume the pilot asked them to pray because he realized, his experience as a professional and well-trained pilot all the years could not help at that point. Only God can help! Sometimes, I just don't understand why some people don't believe there's God. I just don't get it! God is real! He really do EXIST. He brought them back safely! God loves you!
Carlota Gigi Guzman Their collective prayers were answered. Hopefully, the people did not forget to thank God for safe landing and the protection.
Vincent Daniel Here comes all the atheists to inform us about how they think their religion is superior, and how much they dislike Christianity. These are the same people who are notably silent when radical Muslims are doing their dirt
Talha Kausar And the irony is The atheists that propagate their ideologies down people's throat now were also praying that time in that plane 😂😂
Juan Aguilera Pilot should have not told them to pray. That woulda made me scared as a Mf. He shoulda said we have to turn around for whatever b.s. reason, to keep everyone calm
Josh Elliott As someone who doesn't believe in God, I just don't get it. It's a terrifying moment, and the pilot wanted people's potentially last moments alive to be peaceful. Would you rather that he told them to go crazy? Praying brings people to a moment of peace, similar to meditation, similar to just thinking about loved ones and fond memories. He wasn't asking people to "turn to God," and he wasn't asking people to "accept Jesus" or some BS like that, he was simply trying to maintain a level of civility and peace in a terrifying situation, and prayer happened to be the first thing that came to his mind. God forbid. This shouldn't be a big deal, but apparently we aren't allowed to express any sort of religious belief in America anymore, even in a potentially near death situation.
Tristan Wolf Why can't all of you just be happy that they made it safely, despite how or why? The point is no one died and a plane landed without incident. I don't pray,but some might. It that situation, one does whatever they need to to feel safe.
Brian Sarpalius The pilot ask people to pray?? What an idiot. Good way to get everyone panicking.
Shaun Whit "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain speaking: Please pray to the imaginary deity, which someone else told you to believe in, based on where you were born."
Christopher Aaron Munday No, if the guy in charge of a flying pressurized tin can tells me to pray I've immediately lost confidence in his ability to fly just as he has.
Rhonda Henry Clearly the prayers worked. They landed safely. Prayer changes things. 🙏🏾
Matthew Hydorn 2 Timothy Chapter 3 Verse 1-5 "But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people." The CNN comment section proves this more and more with every post that they mention God in.
Mark A Ibarra It's not that I'm offended by the religious implications. That part doesn't bother me. What bothers me is that the trained professional whom you expect to keep his mind on the safety and security of his passengers just announces something that could be interpreted by already panicky people as "well, it's out of my hands, get ready to die."
Eric Decker 2 hours of that?? I can't even imagine how long that must of felt...
David Stallsmith Boy that pilot obviously didn't follow the sop. Shut down the affected engine and land. One of the most basic emergency procedures. And then asking everyone to pray?! This guy really scared the crap out of people for no reason.
Niels Schmidt Well looks like the engine lost a blade. Happens and is usually no real threat to plane and passangers. If the engine would shake dangerously violent then they are designed to fall off before they rip the wing off.
Don Savage I'm not an engineer, but.....if that's an engine causing that shake, would it not help to shut down that engine? 2 hours is a long time
Fred L Smith Ahhhhh This is your pilot speaking. To any of you back there who aren't saved, ahhhhh You might want to take this time to get right....... Ahhhhh Jesus, Ali, Buddha they're all good. Ahhhh We thank you for fly with us and hope to see you ag........ Never mind.
Ryan Steuck Pilot may have asked people to pray but with that much vibration, I'm sure there were a few calling out "ohhhh god!" followed by a cigarette.
James DiDio That pilot should be fired. You're supposed to remain cool and professional. You lie. You tell them it's a "small technical issue". You DON'T tell them to pray. What an idiot. Why not just say, "I think we're all gonna die, enjoy the rest of your flight"?

All three cases began with a traffic stop. All three men were fatally shot by police. All three were caught on video. None of the officers were convicted.

Sanya' Glasco Anyone wanting the news to stop "the division" needs to stop acting like there's not a clear bias and an issue that needs to be addressed with abuse of power and the need to always feel like their lives are in danger once they confront a black person. Stop acting like this isn't an abuse of power, like these officers aren't guilty, and that if it were any normal citizen, we'd be convicted. There is a problem with our police officers getting off with killing black men and it needs to stop. Wake up and stop acting like the division just started with CNN posting stories. Be mad at the officers murdering these men who are guilty of nothing more than driving while black, not the media for reporting it.
Mari-Anne Berggren When I read about this I´m so happy to live in Sweden!! No matter what Trump say´s about our country.....he´s just a liar-in chief!!
Shannan Tyler CNN, is there a reason why you keep posting this story attempting to incite more fighting and violence between people? ~ it is blatantly obvious
Naomi DC But the white policeman were all fearful.... maybe the police need some training that they need to assess the situation first not shoot! If their so fearful then they shouldn't be cops
Nekia Harrison The answer is simple: The justice system was never for us. Hearing these stories of "police" abusing their "power", shooting people and getting off has become the narrative. It hurts my heart because they died in vain, and their murderers walk free. It's sickening and sad!
Brittny Fox That's grade A bull💩. They took off the mask and not riding horses with Lynch ropes. Now they ride in police cars, wear suits and ties and sit as judges. "Justice for all" really means "Just us" and not all.
Lillian Stolfi Roberge Castile's death is wholly unjustifiable. Sylville's death was a consequence of his own actions. I would have acquitted the officer as well.
Alex Smith Something needs to be done about this. Cops can't just shoot people because they "feel" scared. There needs to be an actual, legitimate, substantial and tangible threat present.
Tracy Bass Shumack And what did these 3 men do to make them get shot???? Come on CNN, CNN-News, tell the whole story...if you do not comply with the cops, you will be stopped or is simple as that. Did they comply???? Well, CNN, CNN-News did they?????
Daniel Keasler Why isn't the actual trial released by the media so we can see what the jurors saw? Hear what they heard. After all, the cases have been closed, right? All we hear is, "the officer was not convicted". We get nothing else to say as to why this decision was made. Maybe it is already released, I am not sure, but I am sure that I have not seen any news media post anything about it if it has been.
Charles H. Cook I'm sure this has happened to Whites and other Non-Blacks ... many whites killed by police after being traffic terry-stopped .. probably happens to millions of whites (male and female ... adults and teens) weekly if not daily. But the media just isn't focusing on how often and many whites are injured or killed due to police abuse, especially by non-White (but especially Black) police officers. This is such a 1-sided biased perspective, LOL. 🤔🤣
Larry Christensen Castile was reaching for his identification when the officer fired 7 shots one almost hitting the little girl in the back seat! When you get stopped for a light out, a license plate missing, you are not a violent criminal! Police have not had enough training so they panic! Too many killed with nobody being responsible!
Jon Laye One guy fought with police while he was in the car, the officer had his arm in the car when the driver started driving away. 2nd person, after running from the police, pulled out a gun. Yes, he threw it over a fence but the police reacted immediately once they saw the firearm. 3rd man told officers he had a firearm in the car and the officer instructed him not to reach for it and the subject reached for something. Was it his wallet? A gun? Something else? In each case the subject could have listened to the officer after being pulled over and been alive today. It's really sad that these men lost their lives but when you get pulled over for a traffic infraction, the police that pull you over are armed and trained and are not going to risk their well being for anything
Kaylon Centres If you're scared of darker shades of skin, and you work in law enforcement, it is a bad fit. Go pick another career as you're too dangerous and lack the judgment needed to serve the public.
Crystal Maskell Carey Yet white men still get shot more. Obviously that doesn't fit your narrative. Maybe the two who were acquitted actually were innocent in the eyes of the law? Oh no that can't be why 12 men and women of all walks of life found them innocent. 😐
Deborah Fritts Thank you for reporting on this CNN. However you forgot to mention Terrance Crutcher, although the wasn't pulled over, he was standing on the side of the road , unarmed and was shot by a police officer who was not convicted.
Amber Noelle I find it interesting that anyone could possibly blame CNN or any news outlet for the division in this country. It doesn't take the media to know that division and racism exists. If you think the media is the reason, you have a serious problem. I remember when people blamed Obama for the same thing. Heads up, the media, the President, whoever, cannot make you racist or cause division. The problem exists, and always has. Furthermore, the argument about more white people being killed by officers might be true, but being that white people are the majority in this country, the numbers are automatically going to be disproportionate.
Mark Monroe Why does CNN never show all the whites and Hispanics that are killed by police? Because liberals just want to be mad and self righteous.
Donnell Bates Yeah. We as blacks might as well be on the endangered species list. It's not like folks really care anyway. Hell in some parts of America that would make someone's day, month, year and life. If you can say that anyone being shot is justified, nothing else you need to say as far as I'm concerned...
Rich Waselik Wow... Keep up the nonsense... Keep inciting riots. Here's an idea. Shut down CNN for causing a danger to America and its citizens with this hate mongering. Jury's acquitted, jury of peers, so argument over.
Rebecca Essary But they feared for their lives! Must be a sad individual indeed, to be that afraid of everything. If you are that much of a wimp, consider a different career. Imagine if firemen were that fearful. "I didn't go get that baby out of the burning room because I feared for my life!" Or a doctor. "I didn't help that man because he could have had a gun and he reached for his waistband. I feared for my life." Sad state of affairs, indeed.
Tracy Philips When the police officer tells you to put your hands up... you do it. When you reach for something...the cops rightfully think your reaching for a gun... if all three guys did what the police told them to do...they would be alive today...
Amber Davis Huff My goodness. Please stop continuing division CNN, please.
Charlie Sierra Anyone who has never faced an angry or armed offender or hasn't been in a position where they fear for their life should probably remain silent. Armchair critics analysing video frame by frame in a sterile environment have no rights to second guess a reactionary decision made in the real world where instinct, body language, smells and experience could be the difference between going home or going to the morgue. I'm not defending these instances as I wasn't there but there is always more to consider.
Sid Norris All of these could have ended differently,with at least two of the cops being killed. Good advice to any one. Don't run down the street waving a gun as you're being chased by the cops, don't drive on a suspended license and follow the policeman's instructions. About 40 cops have been killed over the last 2 years. What did they do to deserve dying? Why should these cops go to jail while CNN runs all these BLM protesters screaming "we want dead cops, kill them now". These threats to cops surely cause anxiety and may adversely affect their judgement. So, maybe the news media should share the blame. Inciting violence used to be illegal.

This 93-year-old mother has carried the same sign to New York City's gay pride parade every year since the early 1970s.

Memo Blanquet How awesome!!! This lady has been standing up for human rights before it was the popular thing to do. I admire people like her. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈
Mark Monroe You have to be forgiving of the ignorant. I'm a Southern conservative but being from a metropolis like Houston and having gay family members and friends I have first hand experience that gay people are just people, for the most part. In my humble opinion I do think having parades to celebrate your sexuality is ridiculous. Just be a person. Don't define yourself by your sexuality. You wouldn't want every straight guy acting like a douchey version of Austin Powers, would you?
Tommy Eugene I'm a gay man myself.... I've been watching the Gay Pride on the left and they've gone a bit off the deep end... first adding the color Brown to the flag and then saying Pride has been mainly about the white man.... Pride is for all LGBTQ citizens no matter what race.... tired of them pulling this white thing.....
Kirsten Larson I love how the straight, cis, white, (predominantly) men on this thread are offended by the pride parade. And by gays having the UNMITIGATED GALL, to first of all be gay, and then *gasp* be proud of who they are. God they act like they had to fight years of oppression and persecution just to have the right to be who they are publicly, let alone marry who they love. I mean they've gotten everything they want handed to them! It only took until 2016 be able to marry who they love. And now they get a parade! The nerve of some marginalized members of society!
Bruce Blanton maybe people would be more accepting if it were not shoved down our throats every time we turn around......if you want to be gay.......if you want to be straight......."pride" "awareness""events", taking out billboards announcing how proud and strong you are,in reality, says just the OPPOSITE..... and the rest of that BS is just like some little kid crying "i want to be special tooooooo"......turn it off, and then be PROUD....
Pati Beardsley Seriously. I have NO desire to know what my two adult offspring do when they're intimate with other adults.. Everyone deserves respect. Now, can we please get on with life? (Good On Ya, granny!!)
Tioma Ozurenyi Dear Mum? Would you have been alive if ur mother was a lesbian? Sincere regards
Audrey Van Wyk Read the sign...Keep them safe! That was 50 years ago...a lot of things have happened in 50 years and we are still asking for them to be kept safe! SAD! We are all equal under the law, so you live your life and let them live their's.
Erickson Valencia I've never understood the whole "Pride" thing. Is ones sexuality really something to be "proud" of? I don't ask that in the sense that it's something we should be ashamed of. I just don't get why everyone needs to know. Most people are proud of goal and accomplishments. That goes for straight people too. Like really…who cares?
Robert W Dickinson Repent, You sinners! Romans 1:24-27 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
ANtar FAres I wonder if the freedom of other people has a limit when it comes to our freedom... For instance, how can my neighbor be gay living with another gay and if they adopted a child going to the same school as my child and they become friends... He will b visiting his frd at home n c his parents father and father kissing etc.. So my child will think it's normal and start kissing his frd at school... Something wrong... Other people freedom can't cross opposite people freedom Same applies for leabians
Mary Harris Stop judging people it is not your job. You were not appointed the judge of humanity. If you have a great need to judge start with yourself and stop there.
Onyeka Mbaneme If you fail to prepare for Heaven, you'd simply be preparing for Hell. Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. Turn to Jesus Christ and be saved. If you miss Heaven, you can't miss Hell. Today is your day of salvation.
Cecil Claude Tatom Why couldn't she just march in their pride parade and have sign stating "I adore my DAUGHTERS?" I think everyone would be able to put two and two together. Why do we as a society feel the need to label EVERYTHING and EVERYONE????
Harvey Tan The pride parade USED to stand for something. It used to stand for various causes that affect the LGBTQ community. Now it is just another propaganda machine, misinforming its constituents. With all the money pouring in, it has now become an arm of the Democratic party, a political hack group.
Awana Wong Your understanding, support to your daughter is noble. Do you realise I didn't put lesbian daughter in the my first sentence? It's not I am shamed to utter LGTB, but we are all children of GOD. SO WHY NEED TO EMPHASIS. Most important is world peace
Matthew Brown Gay people will kill their families bloodline. Gay people cant reproduce which mean if a parent only has a one kid and it becomes gay then the bloodline cant continue.
Chisala Pac Chisenga women love gay people, especially in Africa, they all have gay best friends lol, why? is it because they are undoubtedly harmless when it comes to certain private issues?
Nahshon Cummings Oh Lord, here comes the trump supporters.....
Ryan Arnold CNN is changing its rules for covering Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, and enhancing publishing restrictions for online stories, in the wake of a retracted story published on Thursday.
James Boardman The Rainbow Flag was meant to be inclusive of LGBTQ persons regardless of the color of their skin. Ar least it did when I attended the National Marches on Washington in 1987 & 1992 for our civil rights. I think adding the colors of brown & black to the Rainbow Flag is polarizing & divisive at a time when we should be united in our diversity!
Charlie Susan Hasselbach Interesting that my only sibling would not admit her daughter was gay but my Dutch brother-in-law came out to the entire Catholic family by writing individual and personal letters to the entire family.

"You will be held accountable Trump," text on the site said. "You and all your people for every drop of blood flowing in Muslim countries."

Chris Winston ISIS? Didn't Trump defeat them 30 days into his presidency? I mean, that's what he said. Must be those liberals pretending to be ISIS so Black Lives Matter can turn this country into socialism.
Sarang Banne Why are people putting the heart emoji? This is ISIS advocating terrorism on our country. This has nothing to do with most Muslims, this is a terrorist entity. I'm a democrat and I don't like trump but please, use some critical thinking!
Justin Konrad Democrats are now going to be best friends with ISIS. They will stop at nothing to attack Trump.
Laura Widener It was probably a republican attack on his website as kasich came out today with a video opposing the current health care legislation. He's been on Trumps hit list since he only endorsed him at the last minute.

Karen Mallinger Dan Rather 44 mins · The United States was attacked. It was attacked by a hostile foreign power who wished to harm our democracy. It was a sneak attack and its damage we are only starting to understand. What Russia did in the 2016 elections should have every patriotic American angry and determined to rally to the defense of the nation. The Russian attack is back to being the talk of Washington thanks to a blockbuster report in the Washington Post which laid bare the response of the Obama Administration. The facts detailed in that important piece of journalism have raised a series of recriminations among the political chattering class over whether President Obama acted forcefully enough. That is an important debate, and one that will likely be pored over by historians in the future. But while we shouldn't shy away from that discussion, we should also recognize that the threat posed by Russia has not dissipated. If anything it has only increased as Vladimir Putin has seen the success of his efforts to create political chaos in the United States. President Trump has to this point shown no interest in taking this threat seriously. If anything, he hasn't demonstrated that he even understands the nature of the threat. He famously has been flippant about whether he even believed Russia was involved - that was until he could tweet out attacks on Obama's handling of the attack yesterday. How convenient. But that doesn't excuse him, our current Commander and Chief, of his responsibility to protect our Republic. What hasn't gotten enough attention in the Post report, in my opinion, is how the Republicans in Congress reacted back in 2016. (From the Washington Post article) "the (Obama) White House turned to Congress for help, hoping that a bipartisan appeal to states would be more effective...(but) the meeting devolved into a partisan squabble. 'The Dems were, ‘Hey, we have to tell the public,’ recalled one participant. But Republicans resisted, arguing that to warn the public that the election was under attack would further Russia’s aim of sapping confidence in the system. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) went further, officials said, voicing skepticism that the underlying intelligence truly supported the White House’s claims. Through a spokeswoman, McConnell declined to comment, citing the secrecy of that meeting." In 1947, Republican Senator Arthur Vandenberg famously said, "we must stop partisan politics at the water's edge.” And by this he meant in foreign policy and issues of national security. Well in a digital world, there is no water's edge. But there certainly is politics. Criticize the response of the Obama Administration all you want. But we cannot let political point scoring distract us from the current threat to national security. The safety and security of this nation is now in the hands of President Trump and his allies in Congress. Will they take this Russia threat seriously? Or will they continue to play politics? "When it comes to keeping America safe and strong, when it comes to keeping America free, there should be no Republicans or Democrats, only patriotic Americans working together." That was President Ronald Reagan at the height of the Cold War. What would he say about the game the GOP is playing today?
Doug Shingler Orrrrrr maybe it was done by a republican team to scare middle America and turn them to be die hard supporters of Trump. I wouldn't put ANYTHING past this administration
Eddie Vega Curious how that would show up in Ohio. Like if ISIS even cares about Ohio. If the message was for Trump, why wouldn't it show up on a Federal webpage? Like the White House's website. Seems like some fear mongering tactic.
Edgar A. Moncayo Sr When US will united again?? I do remember in the past, Once that the President was elected the congress will be working together and looking to have the best for the country. Here the issue is the way how the current president won, (with controversy, making improper comments, not being "political ", etc.) at least the president should be looking to reunite the country, looking to have all parties working together. Hopefully this will be temporary and US will be the global leader that had been in the past.
Kathy Sue Fox It appears our less effective cyber security is allowing Russia and ISIS in... Maybe it's time our government addressed this dangerous issue. No American wants our country vulnerable to such attacks.
Dee Holleran Kasich is opposed to 45 - one of the Republicans to stand up to the reprobate that is 45. Would not be surprised if Putin's crack IT and fake news teams did this as a favor to their pet dog in the White House.
Robyn Johnson That's pretty scary, Dems and Repubs listen up!!! If we don't come together quick we will be more than just cyber attacked. Now I'm no fan of Trump or his ppl but I'm pretty sure that threat was issued to us all. One thing the right was right about is that second amendment! We all need to prepare because something bad is about to happen.
Alex O'Donnell Didn't Trump have a 30 days plan ... Blah blah ... You guys are ignorant to the aid our government has offered the middle East and helped turned it into what it is now. SMH. One more thing, ISIS can say what they want ... There not man enough to come to our home country. So stay in your little huts in the mountains where you belong.
Linda Mosh Oh, please, this can't be ISIS. ISIS hates all muslims who aren't with them. They've killed hundreds, if not thousands, of them. Don't fall for this stunt.
Lucas Runyon Meanwhile ISIS is massacring their own people by the thousands. As if they had any room to criticize our government over "spilling blood," when they've spilt blood many times over.
Mark Fudoli Quit f***ing around with something so deeply and dramatically important to the welfare and well being of hundreds of millions of Americans. Take the time. Do the grueling work required to deliver the truly comprehensive, affordable, multipartisan healthcare that the citizens of a nation of our stature deserve!

Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party "colluded" against Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential primary, President Donald J. Trump said in a Sunday morning tweet

Joe Recine You mean like how you "colluded" with the Russians to beat her? Even with the colluding, you still couldn't win the popular vote.
Chris Reid Hillary Clinton is irrelevant now... come up with something better to distract the American people from your lies and deceptions. #TangerineNightmare
Patrick Nichols Say what you will about the political infighting in the Democratic Party, that has nothing to do with enlisting the KGB to do your campaign's dirty work. Traitor...
Chris Hallen So when Hillary Clinton is President, she should be investigated. She's not. Trump is. And this is classic deflection. Basically the 'I know you are, but what am I?' Routine
Serge Polihcuk Wonder why CNN didn't do a story on her collusion when it came to light last June.
Monica Burnett So collusion is ONLY legal when you do it with Russia in order to steal the presidency, Mr. President? Do you seriously think we care more about in fighting within a party than we do about your collusion with hostile forgein powers?
Miroslav Patrick Henry There is no doubt America is way stronger since President Donald Trump took over White House and definitely will be in charge for the next eight years,🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸M.A.G.A.. WINNING .

Olivia Fergie Why is the media constantly repeating the verbal diarrhea and lies from this piece of orange shits mouth???!
Brendan Warner Yeah, pretty much everyone is aware of this. The DNC preferred Clinton. I think Trump simply learned the word 'Colluded' and couldn't wait to use it in a sentence. I hope they use it at HIS sentencing. -Ryan M. Kealy-
Mike Kester A. Bernie would have wiped the floor with Trump if he had been given a fair shot. B. Trump is the absolute last person who should be throwing stones regarding collusion to win an election.

How could you vote for this p.o.s. moron!!!???
Matt R. Greider Amazing that there is actual evidence that this happened and people deny it. And there is no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia and the entire left believes it.
Mark Webster Hillary is a Democrat. Bernie is an independant. So the Democrats colluded against a non democrat? WOW! Mr. President you really are on top of things!.
Patty Connors Finch Mr. Trump - please get over the election - you aren't a candidate, you are the President of the United States. Start studying policy, foreign affairs, national security and how to govern. (p.s. some people work weekends - remember criticizing Obama for playing too much golf LOL)
Adam Van Alphen Uh, Duh🙄. So what. She was the DEMOCRAT establishment candidate and they are the DEMOCRATIC party. Sanders isn't even a registered democrat. Trying to deflect to things that are over and done. You won dude. Why are you so bent? Feeling a little....insecure?😂
Phil Voltaire I finally find something I can agree with Nero the Orange: King of Deflection. Or maybe The Mango Menace sounds better. Or that cartoon Annoying Orange with his bad comb over doing an Evil Zoolander impression. He's still bad news for the country any way you slice that fruit.
Gordo Wyne Deflect, distract and distort. He's like a little kid. He can't argue effectively against what he has been accused of( or what he perceives he's been accused of.) so he accuses someone else of something. I would call it pathetic if it didn't work so effectively with his base. It's truly an embarrassing time to be an American.
Katie Lynn D People keep saying that the Dems can't accept that she lost....I have a feeling that it's really just Trump who can't accept that he's president and all eyes are on him. Keep up the diversions, Donny-boy. 🙄
Fanny L. Nunez He is pathetic! He is obsessed with Hillary. Let it go. Primaries are over. You wanted the Presidency, you have it. Act presidential and focus on working for the people instead of always attacking Hillaru and anyone you feel threatened to
Majd Naciri Why is he still talking about Hillary? Smart people (the Dems) know that he is using the same tactics he used in his business to divide people. His objective is to divide the Sanders and Hillary camps so he can keep the power. To all my Dems friends, stay united for the 2018/2020 elections. By the way, the DNC already took action last year. Now time for you to take action against Russia.
Patrick Mulrain Yes. The difference is rigging the DNC primary is unethical but not necessarily illegal. Working with an foreign government which has always opposed American interests to rig the presidential election is treason. The constitution does not address how political parties choose their candidates. It does address how the president will be elected.
Mark James Bill Clinton also met with Loratta Lynch. Who then turned around and collude with ex FBI Director Comey to say Hillary was innocent. In an attempt to affect the election.
Brett Cabral His stupidity and that of his followers still amazes me. Donny your collusion was treason . The Democratic party and Hillary didn't play fair but Bernie was an outsider so it was really politics. Again your campaign collusion with Russians illegal and treasonous. Enjoy jail.
Jerry Love And Obama wiretapped him, and he had the biggest landslide victory in history, and also the biggest inauguration crowds, and there were millions of illegal votes, and he is the healthiest president in history, and exercise kills you, and he will release his tax returns.

Then on a spectacular day in December last year our humble and paycheck to paycheck lifestyle was threatened when we received the news that our perfect little boy had Down Syndrome and a Congenital Heart Defect that would require life-saving open heart surgery. We knew it was going to be expensive, but was holding out to hope that my husband's good insurance would help out a lot, but through the encouragement of family, friends and healthcare professionals we were urged to file for medicaid because the amount of testing and services he was going to need was going to greatly exceed even what our insurance company would pay, so we did and thank goodness we were excepted. I am going to share with you a number that will forever be burned into my dyslexic brain... $1,101, 266.91. That is what it cost to save my 3 month olds life. That amount does not include all of the EKGs, ECHOs, blood work, consults, and therapy he had before his surgery and has had since. There is no way we could pay even a portion of that. If it wasn't for medicaid we would be facing foreclosure and bankruptcy. Like thousands of people like my son that are on medicaid, they are NOT drains on society and a waste of taxpayers dollars! Medicaid helps them and their families be and continue to be productive members of Society. I beg you whether you are a Democrat or Republican to call your state representative and tell them to vote NO on the new healthcare bill and tell them to go back to the drawing board and figure out a bill that helps ALL Americans. #nocapsnocuts #savemedicaid #mightymaverick 💪💙💛
Joe Miles Democrats don't vote against the interests of the poor. Republicans do.
Mitchell Parker He's right!!!! We're too blind to see it because we're "repping our parties" no matter what!!!! They've always played "good cop, bad cop" with us but we're just a bunch of sheep!!!!
Shelley Doucette Hartman He has a point. Both parties are too much in the pocket of corporations, wealthy donors and big pharma. Still while I don't think Democrats do enough to help the poor I don't see them forcibly yanking people from wheelchairs, or generally taking a perverse glee in stripping the safety net from our most vulnerable.
Dmitri Van Nostrand What a coward... his party is rolling out the worst piece of legislation to replace the ACA, which his party watered down with amendments, and thevonly way to save face with his constituents is to blame both parties in order to look like the consummate outsider. Just to catch him up on current events, it was the Democrats that passed the ACA. Seems like they cared about poor people by expanding medicare and allowing pre existing conditions. These are facts Mr Kasich. Democrats DO care for the poor!
Joel Casoria Health care is NOT just about poor people WTH..this guy Kasich is an idiot one to the reasons he is not the President...anything to make a head line to keep his loser face on the news because we all know Ohio is boring as hell...that is like say Black Lives Matter...BS all lives matter...Health Care is about all legal Americans middle class, low class, up class, no is for us all and must be affordable not tax one class to pay for everyone else...this would be such a easy is a no brainer to fix this mess...
Gerald Salamone I'm a registered democrat who in the past voted across party lines. No more though, in view of the state if the Republican party. But I would definitely have voted for John Kasich.
Sharon Curtis We will all be screwed. My husband and I will just walk into the woods and wait to die if we get sick. Guess since we are part of the baby boomer age, most of us retired and "getting up in age" who cares if we can't afford health care let alone stay in the home we worked to pay for. I'm reasonably healthy and could still have another 20+ years.
Nicholas Tokulah Here was a question asked a Fox News Brit Hume that no one seems to have an answer for. And the question was "If there are no mandate or fines to get people into buying health insurance and there are mandates for pre existing conditions to be covered?? Then what's plan for stopping healthy people from buying health insurance only when sick" 🤔🤔 That question there illustrates the future failure of your current health care proposed plan.
Benny E Hooper So he thinks that Democrats (the ones that expanded healthcare to include the poor) are the same as Republicans (the ones that want to take healthcare away from the poor) are somehow equally against helping the poor? That makes no sense.
Kevin Caloca So let me get this straight. The government no longer is going to require me to purchase health insurance, but the insurance options they want available for me to purchase are going to cost more and cover less conditions than the health insurance they required me to buy in the first place? Plus theyre going to remove a tax break from me and millions of Americans in order to give it to the 1% of wealthiest Americans and the medical insurance industry that dont need it in the first place? How uneducated do they think their constituents are? Who do they think they're fooling?
John Charlotte Mosto False equivalency. Democratic Party responsible for social security , Medicare, Medicaid , OSHA , child nutrition programs , And many other programs that directly supports Poor people. Kasich is half correct,his new GOP could care less.
Susan Welsh Kasish has no business talking about both parties. Republicans blocked everything the Democrats wanted to do to really help middle America. Get the Koch bros out of Republican politics and maybe you will be a better party.
Christine Putka Deutsch The new proposed healthcare bill is 142 pages long. Here is a quick overview of what is in the bill: On page 7 tax credits get clobbered and go way down, so basically premiums will skyrocket and people will no longer be able to buy insurance for their families. Page 29 starts the tax cuts to the rich, pharmaceutical and the insurance industry. The insurance industry already makes approximately 18 billion in profits each year, so they really don't need the tax cuts. And the wealthy get a retroactive tax break which allows them to go back and get a tax break on income earned prior to the bills passage not just future income. These people are doing fine (a million plus per year) and don't need the tax break. The top 1% will get 40% of the tax cuts money. The wealthy don't "NEED" this money to survive, but the people who will lose their Medicaid assistance do. Page 39 has the huge Medicaid cuts, even more cuts then the last draft from the House of Representatives. This will severely impact seniors in nursing home care, the battle against opioid addiction and care for the disabled. Page 134 is where the middle age get clobbered. Anyone 50+ can have their premiums increased 5 times the average rate, or 800%. On page 136 you will find that states are now allowed to get rid of protections. States can change the laws allowing insurance companies to charge higher monthly premiums for pre-existing conditions and insurance companies will be able to kick people off insurance after they've reached a certain amount. This is a terrible bill and will hurt so many people. I've attached a copy for you to read. Please educate yourself and call your senators. My suggestion is for you to bring up these major points when you call your senators.
Scott McKever Where do you stand on health care John, because the only senator who appears to be willing to make his position crystal clear, and support all citizens, is Bernie. The amount of money being spent discussing, writing, enacting and reversing laws must be more than a coffee at Starbucks
Phyllis Hendry Nohr Tunks I like Governor Kasich but, no, there are stark differences between the "mission statements", if you will, between the current Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The current Republican leadership exists solely to benefit the top 2% and apparently, with this Republican President at the helm, erode the First Amendment, so sorry Governor but false equivalency. I'm sure you have good thoughts to share, this isn't one of them.
Joanne Matthew He may have been the most logical of all the republican candidates, but he's no prize, either. Some of the bills he has backed are no better than what the rest of the republicans have proposed. We need people on both sides who can see the future in terms of technology, growth, and advancement in energy, science, and ecology----not put us back into the last century.
Michelle Renée We. All. Deserve. Health. Care. Every last one of us. From those with millions to those with less than nothing. Every single human need health care and the fact that this is still a debate is disgusting. Let me say it louder for the people in the back: EVERYONE. DESERVES. HEALTHCARE. PERIOD.
Josh Coy John kasich??.. wasn't even close to winning the presidency, pouted when he lost, and last time I checked Trump won Ohio maybe he should listen to his constituents.
Barbara Herron People without any medical insurance & without money hurt us all, because government pays most of their bills--that's our tax money. The rest is absorbed by hospitals and doctors, and that drives up the cost of care for all of us. We all benefit from affordable insurance and affordable care for everyone.
Michael Brown Is having a single-payer health insurance system any more of a crazy idea than than having your healthcare tied to where you work? Why is health insurance handled by your employer? It makes no sense and never has, but it's been that way for so long that everyone looks right past the absurdity. I think it was a perk after WWII to woo workers, but that was a long time ago (and I may not even be right about that.)
Erin Cronan So, without slamming either side, here is a question. Can you name one good thing that has turned out well either side has done for the poor? The key pat of that question is turned out Let's have a discussion.
Norma Henning I agree with him about health care - and that people who can work should be healthy so they can earn a living. But I still think that they need to earn a living wage and be allowed to organize. Health is good - health and being able to buy your kid braces is better.
Loretta Luglio I like Kasich but disagree with him here. The republicans only care about the rich and it is obvious in all their legislation. Environment (to benefit big oil companies) (healthcare - employers, ins companies). The Dems have at least tried to benefit the poor, sick and disadvantaged. With all its flaws Obamacare is a shining example. It's a shame Trump didn't put the same effort into fixing it as he did in destroying it.

We’re watching New York City’s annual gay pride march from the historic Stonewall Inn

Carolyn Elise You negative people are miserable. Let people live and take a seat. Happy Pride, everyone. 🖤❤️💛💚💙💜
Andora Luciano Still so much hatred and discrimination! That's WHY we gather and support one another and show our pride. You haters cannot stop us from being who we are.
Jewel Bigenho Excuse me! I am Christian but I fully support the LGBT community thank you very much. My daughter came out to me this past February and I couldn't have been more proud of her!
Rita Espinoza-Lew Don't call yourself Christian and discrimate another human's belief, because you think you are better or right. Hell is waiting then. Love is love.
Álvaro Guerrero Muniz "It's Sunday, people should be in church...." 😂 It's New York City! Not everyone is a Christian or let alone religious. 👍🏻 Happy Pride!!! 🏳️‍🌈❤️👍🏻
Sandi Harrington We don't have a "white pride" parade because we've been the dominant ones for centuries is why. Someone's missing their Klan rally, I guess.
Victoria Slaymaker All the so called Christians who hate - God is love and Jesus never preached hate. Stop judging others and get a life.
Carol DeLuca I went to church AND the Pride parade. How about that Bigots!
Paula Lee Clark Proud of my daughter and her wife, raising two incredible children and the twins will be born this week. I dare anyone
Sandi Harrington This day, this month is about love. Haters are unwelcome. Keep your heteronormativity to yourselves.
Heidi Storm God bless the gay Muslims, Christians, Atheists, Jews, and all the confused haters. The rainbow flag calls us all to love and unite!🌈❤️
Donna Palladino Just because something is on FB it doesn't mean you have to reply... stop with the hateful remarks and get off the feed!
Arelys De Jesus Mora Arias Happy Pride to everyone around the world, may love, joy and peace shine shine shine today worldwide SPRINKLE JOY AND KINDNESS ... PEACE
Laura Lee Cantwell This one's for my son Ricky... I'm so proud of you and will always be here to support you 🌈🌈🌈
Tony Pecorara There's no such think as straight pride just like there is no white history month. You are not a marginalized minority group, so every day is for you. Some of you really need to check your privilege.
David Elliott Happy Pride to all of God’s LGBT children (and those who love & support them)!! ❣️❤️💛💚💙💜
Gianni Belmonte For those of you who are being so hateful and negative.. If this is so disturbing to you, why are you even on this sight? Live and let live!!
Bonnie Stangland Why so many angry faces? You don't like it? Then don't watch it!
Ricardo Jose Why are Americans so full of hatred? These ppl aren't harming anyone
Trecie Bellinger To the people with negative comments, you don't have to watch. I know freedom of speech but you must not have a life to sit here and post comments about something you do not believe in.
Liz Richard Gradillas-Fimbres Happy Pride Day! Go with peace and love! Show what love looks like! 🌈🌈🌈🌈
Cill Vee Happy Pride day to all the LGBTQ+ community- they are ALL God's children and he loves them all too- for all those who hate in the name of God- you are the abomination
Sandi Harrington Pride is one of the most loving and life-affirming events we have. Doesn't the Bible also say to "Judge not ..."? Find something good in your own lives and leave everyone to theirs.
Alexa Roland CNN don't start streaming an emergency service vehicle live without telling us what's happening.
Joleen Bordallo Sablan Lmao don't involve the Bible most of you that go to church are the biggest sinners! You to will be judged 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

In an expletive-laced audio recording, he's heard saying that he wished Congressman Steve Scalise was dead

Patty Lau Liberal and Democrat here. This was completely unacceptable. He needed to be fired. We are better than this and must never lower ourselves to Republican levels.
Susanna Duran Republican Rand Paul tweeted the second Amendment was for citizens to shoot their government when the government became tyrannical. That is literally what just happened. In the mind of the shooter, his government is tyrannical. Has anyone fired Rand Paul yet for promoting violence on Twitter???
Abdul Linkin Trump insulted the whole world, yet he got "elected". (Except for Russia and Putin- tough love, AKA Russian connection, AKA Jeff Sessions-no-Russian-Recollection 😎) Quotes by Donald J. Trump on violent rhetoric: "I'll beat the crap out of you." "Part of the problem ... is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore." "The audience hit back. That's what we need a little bit more of." "In the good old days this doesn't happen because they used to treat them very, very rough." "Try not to hurt him. If you do, I'll defend you in court, don't worry about it." "I'd like to punch him in the face." "Knock the crap out of them." "Maybe he should have been roughed up." "I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will." “Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.” - Courtney Lynn, FB
Ashley Kellstrom No matter what party you are with or how much you hate the other side wishing death on people or that they get shot is just way out of line and a line that should never be crossed keep it classy USA
Kathy Montgomery Ratino Totally different standards for Dems. Republicans say this kind of thing and much worse every day and the same people posting below who need their smellin' salts say "meh." Blatant hypocrisy. SAD.
Eric Chen Though I still identify myself as a conservative more often than not, it's getting harder and harder to not see Democrats positively. They have morals. I get the whole Ted Kennedy argument but that's in the past. I just can't imagine today's Democratic Party to stand behind someone grabs them by the pussy, or to welcome someone body slams a reporter.
Sandra Maldonado I'm a democrat. But above all, i consider myself a decent human being. I'm so glad he was fired, because it is not acceptable to wish anyone dead.
Edward Casillas scalise survived. the elderly, ill and children scalise and his republican buddies want to take away their health care probably will die. I'm pretty sure he doesn't care.
Zack Fielder Cue the mad republicans saying this is a representation of all democrats.
Josh Cromer The right is the party of hate. Yes a few leftist people say a couple of dumb things but it is no where near what the right preaches. "Looking at both plots and attacks carried out, the group tracked 201 terrorist incidents on U.S. soil from January 2008 to the end of 2016. The database shows 115 cases by right-wing extremists ― from white supremacists to militias to “sovereign citizens” ― compared to 63 cases by Islamist extremists. Incidents from left-wing extremists, which include ecoterrorists and animal rights militants, were comparatively rare, with 19 incidents"
Ashley Wright I'm a liberal, registered democrat. If you're qualifying this behavior with any number of terrible things the republicans have said, please stop. This isn't okay. It doesn't excuse it. If we want to take back congress next year, we have got to be better than this. This just gives them a way to point the finger. There are plenty of issues to fight for. No one should be condoning or enabling violence. Beat them at the polls, not in pettiness.
Clara DeArmond I thought democrats didn't hate, or judge, or wish bad on others??? Hmmmm. Party of tolerance? That's not what's been demonstrated lately! They should not all be judged by the actions of some but unfortunately that's what they do to Republicans.
Marla Voyles He, Pelosi, Waters, SChumer, Warren, Chelsa with her ridiculous posts and both Clinton's. Bernie under investigating, Obama and his resisting along with Hollywood. The Democratic party has become a fringe leftist party of the coasts. There's no room for middle America there anymore. It's full of violent antifa and celebrities and elected Democrats calling for violence.
Scott Kelley "I wanna punch that guy in the face" - The President voted for by all the people who will pretend to be outraged by this statement from some nobody.
Kelvin Stubbs He needed to go, I'm a Democrat and disapprove of some of the actions of the Republican Party, but he has a family, a life and you wanted him to die? You're just sad for saying that, he has the same right to live as everyone else does regardless of his beliefs in his party
Carlota Gigi Guzman Only donald has a license to say expletive and demeaning words in the public, even violation of the laws and still maintains the oval office. Anyone in the gov't. showing the same braggadocio and gaucherie (social error) will be removed from their post. Donald invoked the 2nd Amendment during campaign which was a clear indication of inciting violence against his opponent Hillary Clinton. This guy did not only wish his opponent DEAD but inviting his supporters to KILL her. And what happened? He got the WH. SMH menacingly.
Rick Wilson He was a volunteer off the street, not elected spokesman for the Democratic Party. I'm sure that many worse things were said often about Obama and Hilary in Republican dominated party offices, excepting in that office culture nobody would think anything of it.
Gary White This is why Democrats lose. Republicans have no reservations about expressing their hate and even proudly making good on thier threats of violence. It's what their base craves. Dems have to stop being so civil when thier opponents will happily cut thier throats for it.
Alain Farmer And on the other side you have a President that insults, threatens, makes fun of and lies continuously and it's own party keeps on putting their head more and more in the sand and accepts this behavior in the name of being in power. Little men are not judge by their size but by the size of their actions.
Lisa Szeman-Moreau CNN how are you going to spin this one? Are you going to go after this POS now former Government worker and hold him accountable for his actions. I would guess not, cause it does nothing for you or those who pay your bills. This man and those like him are disgusting and it is scary to know that they hold Government positions. I love how once again, a leftist idiot gets away with saying it was taken "out of context" when we all heard quite clearly what he said. I hope the Secret Service run him over the coals and I hope his Political career is over. We do not need that kind of person involved in any way. Montag is a PIG and should be ashamed. He should also publicly apologize to Scalise and his family.
Phil Voltaire The party of Death Panels is now under literal fire. It's wrong and it's a shame... and it's also earned through their divisive behavior and determined course of destroying this country.
Deanna Opava Rosario Never assume that your words are not public. This idiot got what he deserved. A truly deplorable way to express himself. I am glad that the party took such quick action to rid themselves of him. That should be what happens when anyone in the public arena says or does anything like this about a tragedy.
Nate Byrne I'd love to see more comments from Democrats straight up admitting this is absolutely wrong, with no excuses, and yet here we are, with a thread of comments deflecting to "But Trump!" "But Republicans!" Pretty pathetic.
Jordan Dickerson Good, we need more of this type of accountability. It doesn't matter what anyone else did or didn't do or whether or not it makes them a hypocrite. In this instance, the individual in question was clearly wrong to say what he said, and I'm glad he will no longer be serving in a leadership capacity.
Tommy Brightman Typical Liberal Jihadist unmasked for his bigoted views for nonbelievers. People that don't share the Marxist Communist agenda dreams of shared misery for the masses are targets of their rage. That wing radicalized Liberals are full of hate.
