"Trump video mocking Obama's Biden endorsement outpaces viewership of Obama address within hours"

And yet Obama actually won the popular vote twice and remains more popular than Trump will ever be. Weird.

Weird that the mockery was so much more popular than the more popular person.
It is an effective hit on the fool Biden and on his patriarch, who is a fool for endorsing a fool. Biden actually is demented old fool so Trump will drag him down and they will both be so smeared with shit that most people will just want to keep away. You can't love Obama enough to stop the train wreck.

Demented old fool? Are you sure you want to go there?

POTUS said...

It is amazing that I became President of the United States with such a totally corrupt and dishonest Lamestream Media going after me all day, and all night. Either I’m really good, far better than the Fake News wants to admit, or they don’t have nearly the power as once thought!

Self Realization is not a strong point of Trump Republicans. They reserve the right to mock Joe Biden but look the other way when Trump does one of his word salad press conferences. Trump is basically your drunk uncle.

Fool - there is no way Anastasia could "stand" anywhere!
She falls forward every time she tries, but don't worry, she never hits her face on the floor!

A drunk and insane Uncle - he claimed yesterday that he hadn't left the White House "in Months", dealing with the Trump Flu, yet he went to SIX Campaign Rallies in February and March!
Demented is as demented does, GOPers!

Obama read polls in order to say the right thing, his goal was to make everyone happy. Good customer service rep, lousy leader. Good leaders do piss some people off. Generally those not pulling their own weight.

i appreciate that trump is a wrench in the machine that did not go full throttle into war with Syria which Hillary would have definitely done. Everything else is the usual superfluous, deceitful, misleading partisan bullshit.
