"Prez Trump Military Threat Against American Rioters"

And yet a lot of the rioting is being done by right wing extremists in order to give Trump an excuse for fascist action.

Yeah, no. Deflect all you like.

Order will be restored. You have no clue what fascism is.

Looks like Mayor McDrinkerson got what he wanted all along. Airtime. Now, after kneeling to rioters and marching with them, tonight he'll go the full monty and bend all the way over. What a clownish, clueless disgrace he is.

7:45: From here it looks like an orange Mussolini holding a Bible standing in front of a church (neither of which he is familiar with) after announcing he'd be calling in the military to quash protests.

President Trump embarrassed himself yesterday all to pander to a bunch of CHUDS who think that by simply holding a Bible, he's familiar with it. Evangelicals and Trumturds are some of the dumbest people walking the earth.

Are you off your meds? The so-called Episcopal “Bishop” has to be to refer to the Protestant Bible as the Judeo-Christian bible. Jews do not accept any books of the New Testament as canonical. And it is not hers to restrict. Trump has as much right to the Bible as she does as she dresses up her fashionable leftism as Christianity-lite.

No, I have to go back to the news where they tell me it is Christian teaching to open your door to robbers and murderers and the Bible supports abortion and queer ideology. And that African Americans looting Nike and Rolex stores are really right wingers working to give Trump an excuse for fascist action.

5:57 EVERY body knows the Right Wingers are at the Lake of the Ozarks or Branson. Saying I'm glad I didn't go to the Plaza this weekend. Do you think The Conservatives would plan such violence .Sleepy JOE will Loose because American Voters see what The violent left has in store. ENJOY THE SHOW WEATHER YOU ARE IN BRANSON OR THE PLAZA.

7:45 - Facism is gassing and shooting rubber bullets at a peaceful demonstration (a good portion of which was clergy) so you can have a clear path to walk over to a church and hold up a bible while you pretend you're religious.

Fucking Magats, go fuck yourselves. Bunch of fucking easy marks for a fucking grifter.

Anonymous said...

^^Ha! So true! The problem is though, the rubes don't know how stupid they are. At this point Trump can shit down their throats and all the MAGATS would say is "I always ate shit! I have loved eating shit my whole life! There is literally no end they won't go to to debase themselves for him.

And yet Jews accept the Old Testament, and without Jews there would be no Christianity. Weird.

I am Donald Trump and I approve this message and will completely contradict it with a tweet tomorrow morning.
