I was soooooo butthurt that Barron was brought into all this. My pussy is sore.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Barren, himself, was not brought into anything. He was merely alluded to as an example of the limitations of the Office of President.

"Trump can name his son Barron, but he can't make him a Barren."

If you think this comment was inappropriate, then you're just looking for something to bitch about.

You're using allude incorrectly and are being disingenuous. It means to make an indirect reference to. Using someones name is a direct reference. Here's the dictionary to help you out:

It was inappropriate. I know that you're not sincere though and either tony pretending to be a jackass for site engagement or someone with a like minded agenda.

Karol Markowicz, one of the Russian-born apologists Fox News has hired, wrote this piece, just to give you some concept of her journalistic credibility.

She's also wrong, the World laughs at Trump (and the USA) because Trump is and does things that are laughable.

Unfortunately, the USA is being tainted by his foolishness, and all the spin doctoring that Russians can spew won't change that fact.

Bust a gut - laughing all the way to reelection 2020... TRUMP!

It would be one thing if the Euro leaders hated Trump because he was a tough negotiator or they personally didn't like him.

But no, they were laughing AT him because he's an idiot and a buffoon.

Trump is embarrassment to this country. Nobody respects him. Not allies nor enemies.

Trump needs to go based on that alone. Liberals and conservatives should be united about that.
