Oh, now. Don't let that Democrat and fake media hoax keep you from holding Trump rallies! The bigger the better!

What did anyone expect from UMKC? Didn't you know they are too busy bashing Trump, violently assaulting conservatives, and pleading for illegals to stay and get top priority. So just remember not to hire anyone who went to UMKC some of them don't even know how to count change back and that's a fact. I had the pleasure of dealing with these idiots.

Looks like the KCMO "business relief plan" is yet another not-thought-through knee-jerk reaction from smiley selfies Lucas.
$500,000 pool of tax money.
With grants up to $25,000.
That might mean ONLY 20 businesses get any help.
This will end up making way more enemies than friends.
And no, on to approval of another $4.7 million for streetcar PLANNING.
You really can't make this stuff up.
