Trump quit?
You mean just walk away from his failure, blaming somebody else?
You mean just like he's already done SIX TIMES?

Hahaha! The President is a master in winding up the presstitutes and watching them lose their little minds.

^^Or get this geezer...he's a total moron, suffering from early-onset dementia, unable to think or speak clearly, can't walk without help and about to be voted out of office in an unprecedented blowout. Yep that's it!

Biden is still hiding from any tough questions in his basement. The guy's mind is completely gone. Watch how his campaign staff tries to get him out of the debates against Trump with the lamest of reasons or unreasonable demands.

^^and yet he's STILL going to be the next president in a landslide. Weird.

The whole election delay thing was simply a tweet made by Trumptard to distract from what was an epic shit show of a day all the way around for Trump.

Shit show.

Biden is already brain dead. In California, everyone talks about how Kamala Harris, his probable VP, slept her way to the top of politics there. How noble.

Anonymous said...

The Dems want to load the mailboxes with ballots from illegals and dead people so Biden wins. They've already shown over the last four years that they don't care about justifying their means to get Trump out of office. The fact that Trump is still in office proves just how false their charges against him were, but yet American taxpayers had to pay the price for the stupid Mueller Report and other responses to fake charges. Can't wait for the Durham Report to show just how corrupt Obama, Biden and other Dems were in trying to hamper and remove a duly-elected president with no regard for the truth.

^^No they don't Boomer. You're spreading false information and outright lies. Not a surprise most old, white people, traffic in them daily. This failed administration certainly does. It's what the feeble-minded do when they cannot explain why everybody hates them and they always lose. I can't wait for the imaginary Durham report either! About how long we been waiting now? Oh, the election comes in 3 months, think it will be out before then dummy? Here's a clue: NO. No it won't. Because there isn't one dummy. It's another lie the feeble-minded tell themselves to explain their failures away. You keep waiting CHUD!

Even Trump knows he is going to lose. That's the only reason to try to delay the election.

Winners can't wait for the date and want to sprint towards the election.

Losers make excuses and complain about "poor me".
