If Trump doesn't wear a mask. He should resign.

Maybe he should just resign anyway. Just to be safe.

Well, since none of the joke investigations have worked to overturn the election, I guess that's what you're left with.

Trump should call on the Michigan A.G. to respect the Bill of Rights.

Joke investigations, that's laughable. Anyone who can read knows Trump was involved in some shit. So involved, he refused to sit down and testify. It doesn't matter, Republicans are all in and weren't going to take any action regardless. Mueller specifically say he could not exonerate the POTUS. But we know that doesn't matter to Trumptards.

Innocent people show their taxes and financials too.
