  7. It appears Sleepy Joe Biden is losing a lot of voters in New York and California.

    Shows how stupid "Boomer Hater" is as he has been saying and wishing Coronavirus will take out the Boomers who he says are Trump supporters.

    Boomer Hater apparently does not know how to research or interpret data. He must lack simple math skills.

  10. 9:58 we still have free health care paid for by others. How many shot up ghetto rats do you suppose carry major medical insurance? But we still pay to have them scraped off the street, transported by expensive ambulance to an expensive ER, where they will be treated and allowed to convalesce in an expensive hospital room.

  18. After everyone watches the corona virus shit-show response going on in Democrat Party controlled New York and California with open borders and sanctuary cities; major MAGA 2020 landslide.

    President Trump was elected because Americans want secured borders. Democrats fought his efforts to secure American borders with "Sanctuary" cities and now we are witnessing the repercussions to California and New York.

  23. "11:16 - Donald Trump's multi-generational family built an international business worth $billions. His father started the business from scratch."

    Oh, please. Trump's grandfather was a lowlife that Germany would not allow to return. His father was a war and VA/FHA profiteer who attracted the attention of prosecutors during the Eisenhower administration. (Take a look at https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-stat/graphics/politics/trump-archive/docs/fha-investigation-1954-part-1.pdf The fun starts on page 395 and goes through page 420.)

    And the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
