    I know how we balance the federal budget: Chris Christie on one side, and all the gold the US owns on the other.

  8. duchesswannabe says:

  9. Jason Blade says:

    The Trump budget will mark the real decline of the US as a superpower

  10. CYIPRO says:

    Trump supporters will continue to follow blindly no matter what happens.

  11. moocowisback says:

    Man, I don’t live geographically close to the US and I’m really worried about its future.
    for the first time, you guys might have a president capable of destroying the country. And the scariest part, trump supporters will never blame him for it.

  12. Dustin Hansford says:

    So essentially what we have here is whoever runs on the Democratic ticket wins in 2020, unless 3rd parties actually become a viable option.

  13. Gavin Moore says:

    Okay, listen up trump supporters because I’m about to educate you. America spends more on the military than the next 10-12 counties COMBINED. No one is at our border trying to invade us. So why does it make sense to spend more on the military?? That’s right it doesn’t at all!

    I patiently await the day Donald Trump is a guest on the show and John Oliver rips him a new asshole by using educated facts.

  16. Aria Antimony says:

    How the fuck does a nuclear bomb keep anyone safe?

  17. Vloggerihardlyknowher says:

    Why do we need to upgrade our nuclear program? We have enough nukes to end all life on Earth like 10 times over. What’s an upgrade going to do? Allow to us end the world 11 times over?

  18. Todd Taliaferro says:

    With each passing day, it’s becoming scarier and scarier to be an American citizen. Trump doesn’t even try to hide the fact that he plans to take from the poor to give to the rich.

    He wants to take food out of the mouths of the aged in order to expand an already bloated military.

    He wants to gut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to give massive tax breaks to the super wealthy, while raising taxes of the poor and middle class.

    The programs Trump will cut or eliminate are indicative of how little his ilk care about everyone who isn’t super rich.

    I have to wonder if the day will ever come when the people who voted for Trump are screwed over by him so badly that they’re forced to admit that they may have made a mistake in voting for him.

    Nah, they’d never do that. He could have his boot on their throat, crushing their windpipe, and their last words would be “lock her up.”

  19. William Stewart says:

    Honestly if Trump wants to bring manufacturing back to the US I don’t understand why he just doesn’t invest in factories for solar panels, windmills etc. here in the US.

  20. Trunkalunx says:

    Keep in mind guys, there was a Simpsons prediction that Trump would not only become president one day, but also bankrupt the entire country after he left office taking all the money with him.

    Let that sink in.
