      You guys don’t get it. Trump supporters aren’t necessarily supporting Trump per se. They support his agenda and policies. Period! That explains the deafening silence of the republican lawmakers. 🧐

                              I beg you my fellow Americans to read an article I found by accident called, "Beyond Reason: Mental Retardation: An Overview." It's totally Trump. It explains everything about him. Why he has no morals and doesn't understand what they are. And why for dirt of the Bidens as a favor he and the General in charge of our troops in Syria pulled them out to leave the Kurdish people to be slaughtered and to let the ISIS prisoners escape. There's a video that came out today that show them leaving the prison. They should have shot them before they left but they probably need the ammunition to protect their families. God help them. We now have a retarded boy in the White House who murders people for his own gain. Can you imagine how horrible the Biden's are feeling now? It's not their fault but it is Putin's fault. The hater of American who knew Trump is retarded and told his fellow Communist psychopaths Xi and Kim how to play Trump to get what they want. Please pray for the Kurdish people. There is now a child in the White House whose become a murderer. Again. God help America. No country is going to trust us for this evil Trump has brought down on us. He should be taken out of the Oval Office and immediately put in jail before he calls someone else and gets more people killed for his own ends. :( Songs

                                  Zippy? Wheres my Zippy? Sounds like he is looking for his Teddy bear. Maybe he has started giving jobs to his stuffed animals and imaginary friends? Wouldn't doubt it. Just take Kushner for example. Giving out appointments to imaginary comfort animals- a new high in nepotism!

                                        Wait. I just realized...holy shit, Trump actually gave a time frame when claiming he had the lowest unemployment in 51 years...he usually just claims whatever he does is the best "ever" or a vague "in a long time" - and he seemed clear when he said it. So either he finally learn to read teleprompters properly amd they had the info, or he is so nervous about the impeachment he actually gave a time frame rather than his usual hyperbole.

                                            I think it is funny when the Democrats talk about Republicans toeing the party line. What in the blazes do the Democrats do? Hollywood, all the late night so called comedians, a large majority of the newspapers,ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN all fall right in line with the Democrat talking points. A survey was done and 90% of the media vote Democrat, so. . .

                                                      A lot of you seem very negative of Trump... but guess how he got voted in? Yeah, weak republican candidates, voted in by dumb Americans because the Democrats had very bad candidates like Hilary Clinton. Maybe, Democracy doesn't always work...
