Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

President-elect Donald Trump is now on the record on the Dakota Access Pipeline and his investment. John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, Lee Camp and Michael A. Wood, Jr. break down Trump's DAPL comments on The Young Turks. Do you think it's possible for Trump to have an unbiased opinion on the pipeline?

Read more here:

"Donald Trump has said he supports a controversial oil pipeline that runs next to a Native American reservation in North Dakota – a project that the president-elect is personally invested in.

A briefing from Trump’s transition team said that the real estate magnate supports the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline and that his backing “has nothing to do with his personal investments and everything to do with promoting policies that benefit all Americans”.

Financial disclosure forms released earlier this year show that Trump has a stake in Energy Transfer Partners, the Texas-based firm behind the pipeline, and Phillips 66, which will hold a share of the project once completed.

Trump’s investment in Energy Transfer Partners dropped from between $500,000 and $1m in 2015 to between $1,500 and $50,000 this year. His stake in Phillips 66, however, rose from between $50,000 and $100,000 last year to between $250,000 and $500,000 this year, according to the forms."*

    Trump is reaching across the aisle
    to democrats and is helping
    with Obamas legacy on this project.

      As long as your water supply isn’t in danger of being contaminated by
      pollutants, who cares, right?

      You need to reassess your values, friend.

      As sad as it is, that would make them appear as a threat. The police won’t
      see it that way, but half of the public will. The police can play off of
      that.

      I won’t defend him but you liberals are embarrassing. First you let Hillary
      win over Bernie. Then you got the whole email thing. and in the grand
      finale you guys lost to a reality star and non politician. sad and funny
      hhahahah

      Let’s all just admit that this guy Trump is all in it for his own gains. He
      is also part of that establishment. It’s time for us the people to stand
      together regardless of party and race and come together against the
      establishment and fight for our rights!

      https://www.democracynow.org/2016/12/2/trumps_deal_that_saved_jobs_at
      I didn’t know about this but I’m not shocked.

      Last March during the campaign Trump said, “I will call the head of
      Carrier, and I will say, “I hope you enjoy your new building. I hope you
      enjoy your stay in Mexico. Here’s the story, folks: Every single
      air-conditioning unit that you build and send across our border, you’re
      going to pay a 35 percent tax on that unit.”

      Again Trump did the opposite of what he said on the campaign trail.

      Public Citizen’s president, Robert Weissman said on Democracy Now, “You
      know, Trump, yesterday in his speech, said companies that leave the United
      States to take jobs out will be punished, one way or another. But, in fact,
      what this deal is about is paying a bribe to Carrier to stay—and, you know,
      as you were saying in the lead up, not really stay. Some jobs stay, not the
      number he said, on terms that are unknown, for a time that’s unknown. We do
      know that in the past these kinds of deals to pay subsidies to retain jobs
      or to get new jobs typically don’t work and that the jobs that are promised
      don’t materialize, or the jobs that are supposed to stay don’t stay very
      long.”

    Trump supporters were previously saying it’s only a small investment and
    that Trump will no doubt speak out against the pipeline. Let’s see what
    they say now.

    • Posted by Sinessa, at Reply

      +Chris Fent
      Right, but that’s after we heard Trump’s position. I’m talking about prior
      to hearing about it. There were plenty of Trump supporters saying Obama has
      failed and that Trump will swoop in and save the day. The fact that a lot
      of Trump supporters are now saying the opposite doesn’t surprise me. That’s
      pretty much what I imply in my OP.

    • Posted by Chris Fent, at Reply

      +Sinessa Okay. I’m getting what you’re saying now. So they’re usually
      talking about how Obama is letting these people down, as if they actually
      care about the people. I had this argument with someone. I said “it’s funny
      how they’re PEOPLE once you want to blame Obama, but when it comes to Trump
      being okay with DAPL those same PEOPLE become the trespassers.” Just keep
      in mind that a lot of us, democrats and republicans, feel that Obama should
      be doing something. That’s a fight that I’m sitting out. I get what you’re
      saying now though.

    • Posted by Sinessa, at Reply

      +Chris Fent
      He absolutely should be doing something. This pipeline is disgraceful and
      it’s happening on his watch. It’s basically a real life version of all of
      those cautionary fictional stories of evil industrial corporations
      steamrollering through indigenous lands, and it’s happening right in front
      of our eyes. That’s how blatantly bad it is. He needs to do something now
      while he still can, because Trump sure as hell wont.

    • Posted by Chris Fent, at Reply

      +Sinessa I hear ya! I’m afraid to see where this ends.

    • Posted by Bob Riemersma, at Reply

      Sinessa don’t forget this isn’t new. Pipelines run all over, even through
      waterways, and they DO experience nasty leaks that contaminate soils and
      waters people depend on. Expansion needs to stop and existing pipelines
      should be drained and drastically upgraded or shut down and safely removed.
      These are time bombs that go off all the time.

    Regardless who the president is, Obama, Trump or Hillary, the pipe line is
    going in. The elite has spoken. We have to get the right people in office
    and hold them accountable.

    • Posted by Joe Black, at Reply

      Yes and it is only going to get worse. The financial district, oil
      companies, pharmacutical companies and weapon manufactures will continue to
      rake in billions. This will happen for the next 8 years while the people
      lives continue to go down the toilet.

    Trump is a complete monster. He will gleefully ruin anything and everyone
    he can in the name of making more money.

    Please, Electors, do what’s right for America! Don’t let this absolute
    abomination into the White House!

    • Posted by pencewins, at Reply

      They are both amoral white trash. Until third party candidates have a fair
      shot and the electoral college is abolished you will continue to have CEO’s
      instead of presidents, and have two ‘choices’ instead of 5 or 6 like a real
      democracy should have.

    • Posted by OrionPax09, at Reply

      +pencewins Believe me, I am painfully aware of just how badly this sucks.
      We need to get rid of Citizens United, among other things.

    I almost gave Palin credit on that too until she equated crony capitalism
    with socialism. Idiot Supreme Palin was sooo close this time but still
    fucked it up.

    • Posted by J Allen, at Reply

      yeah, hard to believe, but Palin is a few brain cells short to be a
      republican higher than state level.

    • Posted by Ryan DeGrave, at Reply

      +J Allen Well I have to admit, she was pretty spot-on in her op-ed
      untiiilllll she mentioned the word socialism. It was like an epic game of
      jenga and then it all came crashing down when that piece came out.

    It’s really irrelevant what Trump says about anything- he’s dishonest and
    delusional all around, he’s obviously going to be a simple puppet for the
    GOP and Corporate America, that his words DON’T MATTER

    • Posted by Beachdudeca, at Reply

      these guys are such idiots , HE DID DIVEST ITS RIGHT HERE !
      http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2016/11/23/trump-offloaded-etp-investmentethics-questions.html

      hate that they are friggen lazy when it comes to doing any research

      They could have done something constructive like reach out to TULSI GABBARD
      and ask her to talk to Trump .
      I am thinking he based the stance on a conversation he just had with a Dem
      Senator from ND that he meet today about DAPL

    • Posted by ReGo001, at Reply

      Beachdudeca this is from a live show. They where dealing with the
      information they had at the moment they where filming.

    • Posted by Beachdudeca, at Reply

      +ReGo001 sigh , dude , I work in online media , and that means they have a
      staff that you do not see that supports them , like their producers . so
      with a little effort they could see this ,
      but , the goal here is Not Truth , its just another story pushed out by
      John and Cenk to drive traffic on a story that might drive views .
      Truth is that he did divest , and what would be far more helpful would be
      if someone reached out to Trump that could advocate why the DAPL needs to
      be stopped or rerouted , that could be the Tribe or a person like Tulsi
      Gabbard

    Trump is a man that is only motivated by money. Everything he has done, is
    doing and will do…… will be to increase his wealth. Everything else is
    irrelevant to him. It’s so obvious.

    • Posted by Megatom, at Reply

      Dwayne Robbie I just can’t understand that kind of person. What’s the point
      of buying a lot of stuff and gold? Like I don’t get why that’s an enjoyable
      lifestyle. It’s meaningless! I’d rather use my riches like Elon Musk and
      help humanity.

    The only thing Trump is interested in how much money he can make hes not a
    politician hes a business man thats what they do. If you think he will stop
    this pipeline your wrong here in Scotland he fought to stop a windfarm from
    being made a windfarm that would produce clean energy for the people but he
    dont care.

      If that’s true Kristy can you explain to me Trump’s motive in refusing the
      presidential salary, and doing the job on a voluntary basis? Also explain
      why he funded his campaign mostly himself without taking donor money.

    • Posted by KNUCKLEHEAD STREET, at Reply

      Kelly Smith he took huge donations what in the Sam hell are you talking
      about

      Because he plans on stealing and making deals that benefit him while in
      office… duh! Is it that hard to understand not taking a $350,000 salary,
      but possibly stealing billions within that same four years?

    • Posted by hed9870, at Reply

      Because he knows that his supporters are stupid enough to try to use that
      as if it matters when they’ll have to spend 1 million a day to keep his

      jeffscomp Hillary would have beaten Trump had she chosen Bernie as her VP
      to show she respects real progressives. She did not and it cost her the
      presidency while creating a red Fascist tidal wave that controls every
      branch of federal government and most state governments.

      That’s pure conjecture although granted it wouldn’t have hurt her chances.

      +jeffscomp definitely could have been better as a show of faith though.
      Even if you believe Tim Kaine might secretly be progressive as Cenk has
      admitted himself you have to acknowledge that to Sanders demographic it was
      a bit of a slap in the face especially when progressives like Warren would
      have not only added to Clinton’s pseudo Feminist argument but been a
      consolation to those that wanted progressive change in terms of class
      inequality.
