David Duke worked at the TWA overhaul base with me and he is a standup guy. I agree with all his views. You would too if you really knew what was going on in the United States - John A.

Why does Trump watch TV all day??? I voted for a businessman to get things done. He should be working 24/7 on the economy now, and he just doesn't want to do the job. It seems like everyone around him has quit too. It will only get worse with another 4 years.

I really thought he could do the job well if he wanted. It's damn disappointing. I'm not a Biden fan, but at least I know he'll get people to work on fixing the economy.

Dr Fauci is a liar. He should have told everyone to wear goggles way back when this virus started. He wouldn't admit to protesters spreading the virus but would only say crowds. He also was the one who suggested everything be shut down. Just goes to show you he's a con and who's side he is really on. Now they are trying to say Herman Cain died of the virus when the fact is he died of advance colon cancer.

Foust realized that it was a hopeless situation in KCK. A lot of dead wood that needs trimmed off that district tree starting at the central office.

Not sure much about this David Duck guy but apparently while briefly belonging to the KKK as a young man he parted ways with it over four decades ago. In the meantime he was a U.S. Representative for a couple of terms. Whatever reason twitter gave for banning him it probably had more to do with his anti-zionism than any thing he ever said or did against blacks.
