They mention it's a China/India de facto border. Whose court will make the border determination? Who cares?

The Great Pumpkin likes to campaign on the Second Amendment; the First he's not so fond of. Weird.

I understand his niece is coming out with a tell-all book as well.

"And your moist dreams of unseating the duly elected President persist. Quaint.;)"

And yet if he loses in November, he won't be "duly elected" anymore. Weird.

"Meanwhile, BLM and the riots have virtually guaranteed Trump a second term."

And yet most of the protests have been peaceful and much of the violence was instigated by the radical right. Reichstag anyone?

You have a keen grasp of how the process works. Yes, we will have an election in November that will determine the next President.

But your silly conspiracy theory belongs in an Oliver Stone film. Face it; the Democrat party platform is now anti-law enforcement and pro-anarchy. The silly, brutal communist thing failed state in Seattle is all the campaign commercial Trump needs.

Look, you wanted this. Now your brand is all over the place. Who knows? Let's see how the anarchy and fake grievance politics sell come November.
