Trump has not been heard from for three nights. Clearly his staff has taken control of his Twitter feed? Did Trump have a stroke? Is it Parkinson's?

Meloonia got the date wrong. It's not November, honey. Guess that wasn't on her citizenship test. Go back to hanging your Nightmare before Halloween themed Christmas decorations.

The tangerine Edi Amin got the quote wrong. "A day that will live in infamy?" Damn, you're dumb. If he showed up to serve instead of skipping out with 5 deferments, maybe he would have learned that one.

He mocked veterans at the White House, again. God damn disgrace.

So much for MAGA and winning.

The only thing winning is his stroke. Bigly. Goh bess, ha Huniha Sathes.

^^^ you three are enjoying a wonderful circle jerk. You still lost.

^^^ We all lost.

The sheep just refuse to admit it. MAAAGAAA.

Hey, I think that's also the sound of his supporters sucking his cock.

Good luck in 2018 supporting the new GOP. Greedy old Pedophiles.

^^^ thanks for the good laugh. The sheeple are you pussy hat wearers that continue to bleat like a sheep getting fucked in the ass. The stock market continues to hit all-time highs. Unemployment is at record lows. ISIS' caliphate in the Middle East has been destroyed. Actually, we all won.

The Party of Pedophiles = Democrats. Al Franken said that he'll resign "in the next weeks". Bob Menendez is still in the Senate. Anthony Wiener is a Democrat. Harvey Weinstein is a Democrat. The Clintons are still part of the party leadership. Sorry dude, you still own the moniker.

But Trump grabs'em by the pussy!

@7:00 - Menendez is Fake News. Manufactured with paid liars. Also, a recent jury trial did not convict him on any bribery charges. As in not guilty. Try to keep up.

Weiner (note the spelling, genius) sent sexting messages, including one to a teenager. He's in jail for sending a picture to a minor. He never attacked children like Roy Moore, but again, is in jail. Franken faked groped in a picture and is gone. Who did Hilary molest? Nobody, but anyway the Clintons are out. Weinstein isn't even a politician. You are truly brain dead.

None of the names you mentioned are pedophiles. Your hero Roy Moore is.

In summary, you're wrong again, 500 billion, trillion times.

Meanwhile tonight down south, Trump campaigned to send a child molester to the US Senate.

Here's a slogan for you and your party, the Greedy old Perverts: Roy Moore, Pedophile Less.

Before you cheer on the stock market (I know you can't afford to actually invest), you better check with the Groper-in-Chief first. His exact words:

“The only thing that is strong is the artificial stock market”

“(American Workers) They worked all their lives to save and now what happens is they’re being forced into an inflated stock market and at some point they’ll get wiped out”

“The only thing that looks good is the stock market, but if you raise interest rates even a little bit, that’s going to come crashing down,” Mr. Trump said. “We are in a big, fat, ugly bubble.”

You better agree with him sheep. Are you calling your President a liar?

BTW, there are still almost 100 million not in the workforce. Heard that from Hannity and Trump.

Even Trump isn't stupid enough to say ISIS is defeated. Army Rangers died just 2 months ago in Niger and their killers are still at large. Don't forget and disrespect the fallen (or those still serving), you asshole.

False. Your babyish ire is funny though. :)

Such hard work, so many desperate words! The country is doing better and the left hates it.

I'm waiting for the next CNN or ABC retraction about one of their bombshell stories. Shouldn't be long.:)
