So it was sheer coincidence that all of Cathy Reinhart's votes got counted and NONE of Carpenter's did, right?

^^ You live in Rainbow fantasyland dudette. Libtards don't want to open up free trade , education, jobs or religion. Just butt drillin', sports ( same as butt drillin') illegal drugs and give the largest libtard Union Teachers an extended paid vacation. You can't "GIVE" people everything. People have to want to achieve on their own. Butt drilling, illegal drugs and free cheese is not achieving, except in Fantasyland. Jim Jones handed out the same Kool aid as your Party.

@7:41, you do remember that a Russian Operative pleaded guilty to and was sentenced to three years in Federal Prison for acting as an unregistered Agent for a Foreign Power and funneling hundreds of millions of dollars through the NRA to be distributed as "member donations" to various Republican Candidates' campaigns in the 2016 elections, don't you?

If not, look up "Maria Butina" to refresh your memory.

Of course, she only served four months before receiving a Presidential Pardon, and she has since returned to Russia and cannot now be located, but her Guilty Plea and the facts of what she plead guilty to are Public Record. The only questions not answered in the matter is if the recipients of the money knew its real source.

^^You can't present facts to Trumptards. They don't believe in them. Anything that makes Dear leader look bad is made up. Hell, even when Dear Leader opens his mouth and utters something stupid, lies, or has a senior moment(which is everyday mind you) it's fake news. At this point, the CHUDS know they backed a sundowning, lying, con-man with the IQ of a box of rocks, but they can't admit it. Remember, the reason so many of these CHUDS believe all his conspiracy theories is because they need to feel smarter about something than everybody else.

Such a sad piece of shit.

I wonder if "The Donald" thinks that the "Yo-See-Might" National Park he tried to read about in a speech Wednesday is in the Country of "Thighland" he tried to read about in a speech yesterday?

Lysdexia maybe?

I wonder if Biden still thinks all black people think alike or if he got "reeducated". I just love it when he gets in front of a camera. Hell, he doesn't even realize where he is much less what he's saying.

You seem so interested in investigations! Durham's investigation, which if you recall is about the biggest intelligence community scandal since Watergate, is due to produce indictments soon. If you recall, the FBI engaged in rampant abuses in securing fraudulent FISA warrants to investigate Trump. This is exactly the Nixonian crime writ large.

Refresh your own memory on the Mueller investigation. "No collusion." Isn't that interesting?

Oh Chimpy. You only like the Russian collusion conspiracies! Lol

The only fear that delayed cancer diagnoses was that of hospital staff which was so acute that they delayed all diagnosis procedures during the lock down. The medical professionals are lying if they are trying to put this off on the patients. Patients tried calling their cancer doctors during that time and ended up leaving messages in full voicemail inboxes. It was a crime but no one will ever be punished for the blatant disregard of patient welfare.

When's Obamagate happening? I'm still waiting. Trumptards have pointed this out as the biggest scandal our nation has ever endured.

How long has that Durham investigation been going on? They haven't even interviewed Comey yet? When's the election again? Sorry Trumpkin-the Durham Investigation is yet another lie sold to you by The most criminal Administration ever. Keep waiting day it's coming!

Devout Catholic Biden is described by Trump as having “no religion, no anything, he will hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God"

His campaign then mocked a photo Biden praying. Not unexpected from a completely immoral candidate that previously attacked the Pope and used the Bible as a prop.

Just like his fake Christian Evangelical advisors, Trump again has proven to be an anti-Catholic bigot. Attacking and mocking Catholics as against religion and God will ensure Trump's landslide defeat in November.

@1:52, where in Mueller's report does it say "no collusion" was found? That's right, NOWHERE! Right wing mythology aside, absolutely NOWHERE!

The conclusion of Mueller's report was that it was up to the Attorney General and the Courts to determine whether it was Constitutionally possible to issue indictments against a sitting President. The redacted report that was released did not specify what those charges might be.

This report and the questions it raised were released just before Trump fired his (own choice for) Attorney General and put Barr in his place. So far Barr has done absolutely nothing to conclude the Mueller Investigation's issues one way or the other, and Fox, Breitbart, Epoch, Cato et al. have done their best to bury the AG's inaction.

5:09 The Mueller report found no evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign "colluded" with the Russian government. The decision it left to the AG was whether to pursue charges of interfering in the investigation and the AG determined that since there was no underlying crime, and therefore no legitimate investigation, there could be no interference. Those facts are incontrovertible.
