It's pretend complaining about Trump. He has helped their ratings more than anything. Anybody who thinks the outrage is real might be desperate for entertainment.

wrong. TDS is a very dangerous condition.

Not that I think killing a black man when his is just out jogging in right, it's a terrible thing, but what about the black people who kill white people for no reason? After all look at the killing of the cops who were protecting the blacks at all of their riots. Making sure they had the right to protest and were killed in cold blood because of the hate incited by Beyonce and the Obama's. No one seems to look at that.

I don't know if I'd call TDS dangerous, but, yeah, it's real. I mean, people are pissed at Trump for, in general terms, being a huge fuck up of a President. Justifiably so. New unemployment numbers came out this morning, highest since the Great Depression. Can't imagine why anyone would be pissed?

People are pissed he appointed his useless son in law and daughter to WH positions with Intelligence clearance they were rejected on.

People are kinda pissed he put in some half ass travel ban from China and then washed his hands of dealing with COVID 19 and trying to mitigate impacts and here we are today.

People are pissed that he shits on our allies yet kisses dictator ass.

I mean, you could go on and on. Even ignoring the fact that he was impeached and clearly tried to strong arm Ukraine into smearing Biden.

An innocent man with enough money for competent lawyering doesn't plead guilty.

^^^ every good and decent father would do it to protect his son from fake charges that they threatened to put him in jail over, remember, all these charges were fake and he lost everything and in the end it all comes down to lies and deceit on the governments part. They all are admitting there wasn’t anything to charge anyone with. Scary to think this man almost went to jail.

You should be real worried about that part, all this was done in the name of power for certain democrooks.

Wake up hyperblogal.

8:48 this is today calling, all those things you keep talking about have been proven to be lies. I know it can be hard to accept the truth but I think you can do it!

^^^Haha. What, exactly, has been proven a lie? You don't read do you? No, I'm guessing Trump told you? You know Trump lies constantly right? It's his thing.

Fact is, you don't give a shit. You like Russia. You like Putin. You don't care because you've been grifted by a guy who's been grifting all his life and you were a mark and you fell for it. I know, it's embarrassing. I'm embarrassed for you.
