    This video isn’t even political and the dislike squad has already showed up

    • Posted by rimmersbryggeri, at Reply

      Is it so wrong to dislike jimmy dore? He is obtuse annoying and unfunny.
      Not that I would click dislike because of that but people who are in the
      facebook generation communicate that way..

    And that’s how the establishment is created. Know each other, be nice to
    each other. If someone screws up, cover him…. add a few decades and you
    have a swamp.

    Trump did fool a lot of people with using the bible. Who’s seen him with
    his bible lately? His Christianity was nothing more than a cloak, a
    disguise, and a ruse. I almost want to applaud him for deceiving so many
    people with his gimmick.

    this comment requires viewer participation and it’d be greatly appreciated
    if you participate. I’m curious and I want to do a little poll. the
    question is: do you think TYT is unbiased, fair and hasn’t been corrupted
    and/or bought off?

      Biased, yes.
      Fair, somewhat.
      Bought, not in the slightest.

    • Posted by John Apple, at Reply

      TYT is one of the most biased political shows to ever exist.

    • Posted by Jonathan Knobel, at Reply

      They are completely biased unfair and bought.

    TRUMP speak the truth everyday!! Maybe that’s the reason liberals hate him.

    • Posted by MISTY1770, at Reply

      +Melanoma Trump
      Why can’t you imagine that a black person would ever support Trump. What
      kind of close minded bigots are these liberals?

    • Posted by kani75, at Reply

      Kareem – Trump also speak two lies with every truth.

    If the fear of becoming friendly with power is the only reason why you
    wouldn’t speak truth to it, how exactly is that even a problem? If I’m
    talking to the CEO of some company that dumps dead puppies into a river
    upstream from an orphanage, it wouldn’t matter to me that the guy is a
    great person to have a beer with or that he’s got great stories, he’s still
    getting a verbal punch to the throat. People enough in the world you can
    be friends with that you don’t have to feel bad that there’s some you
    intentionally don’t get chummy with.

    • Posted by LabTech, at Reply

      Just feels like a very defeatist attitude, to be honest.

  9. Posted by NismoFury, at Reply

    There is no downside to speaking the truth ever. Its liberals fault for
    lying in consideration of people’s feelings. If someone is dumb you tell
    them they are dumb BUT here’s how to change that. Just lying & saying oh no
    you’re smart is more diabolical & evil. Pessimism is how you fix anger.

      Great! I hope they killed some guys (Trump only won 3 states by 60000
      votes. If BLM kills 60.000 white people, Trump will lose in 2020)!

      Without realizing it, if you’re young or fairly young which i think you
      are, you just proved one of Cioran’s theories (a romanian philosopher of
      the XX century), lol.

    No. they are not not nice people. They are super friendly to people face to
    face, and then they get to work screwing the poor, and bombing civilians.

  13. Posted by toastsandwich, at Reply

    Same could be said about the anti tyt viewers (who for some reason keep
    warching) I bet 99% of them would be scared to say to Cenk in person what
    they type with their courageous keyboards.

      +silverpurkat Yeah only teenage boys are young and stupid enough to not
      know that it was FDR & Eisenhower who made America great in the first
      place, with policies that would be branded as “socialist” by the lizard
      brained ‘right thinkers’ these days……. history, economics or facts in
      general are huge threats to their bullshit talking points

    I feel your pain with regards Donna Brazil. I’m still saddened over her. I
    thought she was one of us. Damn!

      William Hunter ture and now she needs to go and go badly, she’s probably
      just been in the game too long and got use to the corruption

      Hamish, sadly, I think you are correct.

    Jimmy Dore is an idiot. A conspiracy theorist and anti-establishment
    propagandist.

    • Posted by filonin2, at Reply

      What is a “anti-establishment propagandist?” Are you actually *for* the
      corrupt, money controlled theives of our democracy? Shame on you.

      +dipojones hardly. Currently in the middle of making a video debunking his
      absurd claims about US and UK surveillance.
      Will link it here when I’m done.

      +filonin2 corruption is actually very rare at the federal level.

      Not at al:

      The US has far too much oversight to prevent it. Where it does happen is
      local levels where there is less oversight.

    your Donna Brazil story reminds me of the time I got a fist bump from a
    stripper for tipping another stripper (hillary clinton)

    Can we please stop using the phrase “Speak truth to power”? It is annoying
    and idiotic. The powerful know the truth; they don’t care.
