  • Bahahahaha George's description of Pence is spot on!
    "Pence is a reminder that no one can have sustained transactions with Trump without becoming too soiled for subsequent scrubbing."

  • conservative = conserve a system where all money goes to the top…….not family or religious values like they tell you…….wake up , spred the word

  • George Will is an honest advocate for the American conservative position. I'm on the opposite side of just about everything he stands for, but I do render considerable respect to him for his intellectual honesty. I wish he were emblematic of today's 'conservatives', but the right has been hijacked by populist demagogues and has devolved into the gutter.

  • The only poodle is the  liberal medias token house "Conservative" George Will. A complete fraud.who is hired by the Gop Establishment and Globalists to take down Trump

  • George Will is an articulate thinker. You watch Pence on TV with that fake fawning look on his face and that vapid look  in his eyes and you think Manchurian Candidate in real time. What horrid force will be behind him if Trump goes down.

  • America is in trouble because we have an amoral president. Now is not the time for party politics. We have to stand as Americans against this tyranny and protect our country regardless of party. God bless America.

  • You know it how odd it seems that Pence is cautiously quiet? Hasn’t said word one. If Trump goes, how can the American people possibly trust someone who is so incredibly deceptive? We don’t know how he feels on any subject, issue, scandal or circumstance. If not a public show of support for the American people, does he speak up in meetings? Does even TRY to advise #45? Does he slip him a note providing options to policies? Does he DO ANYTHING TO HELP THE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS who are continue to suffer? Or…does he offer us his thoughts and prayers? For a man of such strong religious beliefs, his silence shouts complicity.

  • George Will could see what Trump is from a distance, I wish the republicans had listened to him. I think Pence knows a lot more of the dirt in Trump's campaign and presidency than he admits.

  • You folks are all smart. Use your skills to semantically analyze this statement:

    “They are imparting — these people who want to "Make America Great Again" — continental European, enthno-tribal, blood-and-soil right-wingery, which is the antithesis of the founders’ version.”

    OK, OK — so you have to put aside your southern predispositions to the undeniable economic efficiencies of slavery, your European enthrallment with natural-born entitlements, your visceral propensities for murder and genocide, and your all-American predispositions toward the concepts of Manifest Destiny when it suits you and makes you feel good. But still, there can be no doubt, we are all ‘Murricans, eh?

    Color me disgusted, and a very poor citizen these days..

  • This guy is part of a coup day ta in slow motion by the multitude of elites , not that this guy is an elite figure,and partisan opposition, they have aligned to over throw the electoral college winner Donald Trump. This is to lead a minority force into power over a ligit gov, it’s leaderless , but it exposes the deepest fissures in our gov it’s not the rule of one man but by the multitude of our elites.

  • I applaud the fact that George Will speaks out against Trump, but if he thinks far right wing fascism has never been in America before (because that is what he was obviously alluding to), he is either lying or cluelessly in denial of reality. What was the fight against the Civil Rights movement in the 60s, and McCarthyism in the 50s/60s, or segregation, or the slave trade, or the genocide of the Native Americans??? All that ticked the boxes of what fascism is about……the word "fascism" is not old, but the concept and actions of fascism are…..

  • gawd george will is a despicable little twerp. i remember when he was working for carter. he stole president carters debate prep for the carter reagan debate, and gave it to reagan. what a sneaky little thief. i was no carter supporter, but my heart went out to him on this issue. to have a snake, a betrayer, right in your camp must be demoralizing beyond measure. i sure liked it when bill orielly took him on and wiped the floor with him. george will is clearly a disgusting pos.

  • President Trump is hoping for good outcome in North Korean talks, economy to continue to grow, jobs and more jobs etc…
    Hillary expected to win. 💘 from Sandieago!

  • It was Trump or Hillary… thank God MSNBC doesn't pick the President or we'd be in serious trouble. From what most people can tell, there is a double standard in applying the Law in this country. That's why we elected Trump. He simply expressed a desire to get the criminals out of the government. But, there are those who must create conflict and dissension to sell their ad slots and preserve their employment. These groups are known as the MSM but MSNBC and CNN are quickly falling by the wayside and are no longer considered mainstream since they garner an insignificant percentage of viewers. Trump is not the problem, he is not the enemy. The enemy is supporting your network with their poisons and MSNBC is an accessory to this criminal activity. Anyway, sycophant behavior is now standard teaching in our schools so it must be a good thing, right? As is often the case, you have hung yourselves by your own words and deeds.

  • Yep! MSNBC another Fake News that will say and do anything to crush America… Wake Up America Bring our country back.. Liberals use people as pawns..

  • What a laughing stock America has become . The values of America, are being thrown out the window. 45 and company, has lied to all who voted for the orange clown. America deserves better, but vote for someone who is trustworthy. 45 has been corrupt all his life , and these flakes believed the con man. He couldn't get voted for president, nowhere else in the world. That says a lot about the people, who voted this clown for office. Smh

  • George Will claims to be a great historian, but he is living in a fantasy world if he ever truly believed the Republican Party was the party of "limited government" (with the exception of the presidency of Calvin Coolidge!). From Lincoln, to Teddy Roosevelt, to Thomas Dewy and even Richard Nixon (reference Danial P. Moynihan's work on Nixon welfare policy and Nixon's idea of a Guaranteed Annual Income), the Republicans have been right in there with progressive, big government views – if not always on domestic policy, then certainly on foreign.

  • George Will calls himself a conservative but he's in reality is a neocon and favors globalism over our sovereignty.

  • George F. Will and Joe Arpaio: Separated at birth?

    The only problem George F. Will has is with reconciling his outrage at Pence with lunch with Nancy Reagan at the Jockey Club every week without making a definition of "lickspittle" congenial to his relationship with Nancy Reagan.

    The whole history of the GOP since crypto-Nazis jacked the GOP when they came to town with Reagan looks like Mike Pence and Joe Arpaio as a proxy for the GOP's Deep State. Trump is what can only be understood as a practical demonstration of the nature of cause and effect, logical outcomes and unintended consequences.

    Mike Pence and Joe Arpaio do not fit George F. Will's vision of his personal ideal self in any respects associated with Conservatism and his personal "ideologly".

    The problem for me, as an army brat who grew up avoiding civilian kids like Mike Pence and Joe Arpaio to become a hard-wired Eisenhower Republican who had to choose between a political party dominated by kids like Mike Pence and Joe Arpaio who grew up to be thugs like Mike Pence and Joe Arpaio.

    This is the face of the GOP's Deep State, George, and the only way to tell them apart from Russian bots is that the Russian bots can dance better than Tucker Carlson.

    You are ugly people, George, spiritually, intellectually, morally and politically, You all dress real nice and look almost human almost all the time, but then Mike Pence and Joe Arpio spoil the illusion.

    Trump is Frank Sinatra's "My Way", personified

    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
    ——Giving money to trumps lawyer in expectation of political favors is bribery. Citizens United which allows campaign contributions in return for political favors is an unconstitutional law. We need to fix this. PLEASE COPY AND SHARE THIS IF YOU AGREE. Our Democracy depends on this.

  • F' Republicans. All the smart ones are dropping from the race. All the racist crap left over, is sticking to their guns to undermine America.

    I'm sorry, but if you are a true American Patriot, the last thing you are, is a traitor Republican.

  • I might be somewhat liberal and have usually disagreed w/George Will,he is an American and he sure is making sense here,no doubt!

  • Amazing how much more popular Trump is today than when he was elected! Check out real clear politics poll of likely voters! (One of the most accurate on Election Day!)
    Latest generic poll for congressional elections shows GOP actually has a slight lead!
    And as was the case with Ronald Reagan who is constantly vilified by the mainstream media, as the actual results of his governance took hold, the population came to embrace him, and ignore the caricature created by the media.

  • Pence and his ilk are infiltrating politics for the purpose of imposing their extreme religious ideology on the rest of us.
    American Taliban/Christian Sharia. Look up 'Seven Mountains Dominionism'.

  • George Will has no idea what he is talking about here. Populist movements as well as tribalism have been a part of American presidential politics almost from the "get go." From Andy Jackson, to William Jennings Bryan to Franklin Roosevelt, presidential candidates have played both mass appeal politics as well as singled out particular ethnic / religious groups for support. Mr. Will is simply against the policies of Trump and doesn't have the courage to say so directly — so he goes for the "un-American" argument.

  • Good riddance Will! You are where you belong: Looking down your nose at we Americans who love this country. Your faux noble rhetoric is laughable to those of us who are fighting to save our country! Stay on MSNBC! You deserve each other!

  • We cannot impeach Trump because what waits in the wings is worse than Trump! this is a really sad State of Affairs we find ourselves in Mike Pence is a religious psychopath his wife is a religious psychopath we cannot impeach Donald Trump. Do you know what would make me feel better? if the United States attorney would arrest his son, his daughter and his son in law.

  • The liberal left has lost it's collective mind, you can no longer debate issues because you feel your position is the right and just one and everyone else can just shut up, disagree and we will call you a racist and ruin you in public via our liberal progressive FAKE NEWS machine known as the MSM. America elected this POTUS to do a few things, No. 1 Secure the border and start deporting all the illegal aliens the previous treasonous traitor Barak Obama allowed into the country via his pen and his phone, No. 2 create jobs and boy has Trump delivered on that point in spades and 3rd clean up the cesspool of traitors that is now DC. We have a POTUS who is willing to take the established swamp dwellers head on and he continues to expose the deep state and it's minions. The last thing we asked him to do was to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her crimes against the USA, and low and behold guess what the investigation the Democrats started to find the truth regarding a phony election collusion story/excuse between the Russians and Trump has now show a very bright light on the treasonous Obama administration who now has been caught lying and spying on the Trump campaign and using their dedicated minions in the FBI and DOJ to do their dirty work. People who were regulars at the swamp bar are now finding themselves without jobs and facing the possibility of years behind bars. So as we inch closer to jailing the Clintons and possibly Obama, I urge the reasonable people of America to look at the truth and if they do they will see that the Democrats have nothing to offer in 2018 or even in 2020 for that matter in fact I don't see them taking back anything as more and more of them find themselves at the end of a Congressional subpoena or demoted in their workplace or having to take early retirement to avoid prosecution. The DNC is run by a foul mouthed moron and a muslim with known connections to terrorists, what pray tell do these to un-America POS have to offer our country besides more plane loads of our tax dollars being loaded onto planes in the middle of the night and flown to our sworn enemies and known sponsors of terror? Vote Republican because we still have a lot of thing to fix that the Democrats broke and will never be able to fix, elect adults not spoiled ignorant brat Democrats who only want to flood our nation with illegals and then give them the right to vote, that really is all the Democrats have to offer you.

  • If anyone has trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights it has been the liberal left. Using government forces against citizens at Waco and Ruby Ridge. The illegal internment (under FDR) of American citizens simply because of their Japanese ancestry. Using the IRS to target conservative groups, and using the FBI in an attempt to ruin Trump and elect Hillary. All of the liberal desires (defined as rights) have been granted by liberal courts AND NOT by majority voters. In fact, when voters have TURNED DOWN liberal propositions, the courts have been used to over turn the voter. Now you have Universities and Hollywood threatening violence against opposing speech. You try to ignore a government request for information, then delete thousands of emails, and smash lap tops and government phones and see if YOU don't go to jail. Spare us your hypocracy.

  • So thankful that George Will is now forced to pander to the hard "left" and fools at MSNBC. Perfect place for him.

  • I’m a life long Democrat. I don’t know much about George Will, but I like him.
    He’s a smart man. He is scrupulous. He telling the truth about these people.


  • After they both get thrown out of office, they could go on tour with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and call themselves "Triumph and The Sycophantic Poodles" promoting their new album "America…For Me to Poop On!"

  • Pence is as shameless as Trump. He has no self-pride, only ambition. He took the VP job, hoping that Trump will step down, so he can become POTUS.

  • Where Have All The Statesmen Gone? (parody song of) Where Have All the Flowers Gone?,

    Mike Pence, one of three men unfit to eulogize John McCain. :And then there were the three who spoke on Friday. You had to control your gag reflex watching Vice President Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) extol McCain’s greatness as he was accorded the honor of lying in state. … Consider Pence for a moment. He began with a ludicrous declaration that broke all records for disingenuousness: “The president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation, to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life, in uniform and in public office. It’s my great honor to be here.” President Trump despised McCain and routinely mocked him. Suggesting that Pence was there to represent Trump would require him to insult and mock McCain. Pence accepted the vice presidency and stuck with Trump despite the “Access Hollywood” tape, despite Trump’s denigration of McCain’s service, despite overt racism and contempt for human rights. He has not batted an eye over the hush-money payments to women, the attacks on the rule of law, the evisceration of decorum. Only in Washington could such a spineless creature sally forth to declare McCain a hero. To call McCain a hero is to recognize his heroic qualities, of which Trump has none. You can worship Trump or admire McCain; it’s metaphysically impossible to do both. Meghan McCain’s glare was an appropriate reaction to Pence’s hypocrisy.
    — Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post Opinion writer, August 31, 2018,

    "The oleaginous Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America's most repulsive public figure… Because [Mike Pence] is the authentic voice of today's Iickspittle Republican Party, he clarifies this year's elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing."
    — George F. Will, Conservative Republican commentator and former Fox News contributor, May 9, 2018

  • Seems to me that George Will is the disgusting little sycophantic lap-dog.  A lap-dog propagandist for the radical leftist America-haters in the Communist (formerly known as "Democrat") Party and their so-called "main-stream" media fake news and political propaganda tools.

  • George Will is an odd bird. He will tell you he is a conservative. But he appeared on liberal ABC for many years. I think he says he is a Libertarian now which means he can sound like a Dem on many issues.

  • The republican party are Nazis in principal you can come out of your sheets now. Oh you people of color who follow Trump, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, ARE Y'ALL CRAZY?????😲😲😲

  • George is not a conservative. He lies about America being an "experiment" or "idea." He thinks the Alt-Right is a bad thing because it is the right-wing version of "identity politics." Yet, America was indeed founded by white people for white people. Here's proof:

    1790 1795 1798 Naturalization Act limited naturalization to immigrants who were "WHITE persons of good moral character."
    The Constitution was created for "ourselves and our posterity."

    The 1828 Webster's Dictionary defined an American as, "A native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the DESCENDENTS OF EUROPEANS born in America."

    John Jay in 1787 wrote: "Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people DESCENDED FROM THE SAME ANCESTORS, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs…"

     "I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people." — Abraham Lincoln
