Fake news in the article about Melanie. Trump never boasted of grabbing women by the p****. He boasted of going in for the kiss right away and then joked about how gold diggers will let rich guys get away with almost anything, using the p-word grab as an extreme example. English is not that hard, people.

So why should we believe any of the claims? There is no good reason.

Who are you gonna believe? Me or your lying eyes and ears.

Trump's family hates him. Fox News employees, when off the record, say Trump is insane. We all know it's true.

This guy won't be in the Demonrat party much longer.

Thanks bandit, that’s a helluva a lot of truth in that speech, he just doomed himself with all those truth bombs and the despicable dimwits will hate him and find a way to get rid of him.

It’s funny that a guy like that hasn’t gotten any air time or national exposure, I’m glad you found this, gave me goose bumps.

Bandit said...

The loons will push him out of the party very soon.

OOPS! CNN reported honestly and then turned their honesty back into the usual propaganda.

"mostly peaceful protests"

Why idiots insist on putting happy faces on turds is astounding. If you draw a happy face on a turd, it's still a turd. Doesn't change the violence or property at all. My bad! black lives supposedly matter. Sorry, but when they do this crap they don't. They are worth a round or two at best. This stuff wins nobody over to their argument. "Mostly peaceful" my ass!

Here’s a summary of the future vision of Biden and the Democratic Party based on their pathetic past behavior:

- Open borders to all illegals so they stream into our country and then we have to pay for their healthcare, food, education and other needs with higher property, sales and income taxes.

- Weaken the police so crime is out of control in all cities, not just the big ones like it is now where the Dem mayors are in charge.

- Weaken the military so terrorists and foreign armies can more easily threaten our safety, take over regions of the world and kill us.

- Don't hold criminals accountable for their actions and make sure they either don't go to jail or can post bond easily so they can quickly get back on the street and commit more crimes against law-abiding citizens and property.

- Weaken the economy with more industry regulations, like no fracking, and more corporate taxes so fewer people can get hired for jobs and unemployment skyrockets.

- Raise the taxes on our paychecks so our net pay is miniscule so the government can pay for more socialist and welfare programs.

- Let doctors abort babies even after birth if the mother doesn't really want the child.

- Continue with false accusations and endless hearings on subjects like Trump-Russian collusion against the President that wastes millions of American taxpayers’ dollars and takes the focus off legislative focus on the real problems facing Americans.

- Continue to work with the corrupt liberal media to take Trump statements out of context to make him look like a racist at a time when he was the one president to decrease the unemployment of Blacks, Hispanics and many other societal segments to record low levels; has no record of being racist; and gave more aid to Black colleges and universities than any other president.

- Be hypocritical about how well Biden would have handled COVID-19 as evidenced by Biden and/or his staff stating that Trump was being xenophobic by stopping flights from Chinese residents to America early in the pandemic, stating that COVID-19 won’t end up being any worse than the flu, and stating masks aren’t very helpful.

- Keep segmenting Americans by ethnic, gender and sexual preference groups so the Dems can act like they are saviors to those groups when they really are only preventing the idea of one America full of people who have differences but who all love their country.

Everyone knows the Dems are becoming desperate and nervous because Trump is quickly catching Biden in the polls. They need to figure out a way to cheat, since the party has lost all integrity with the false charges aimed at Trump and his staff for four years. They will stop at nothing and believe the end justifies any means to regain the White House. The convention will give Biden a little bump, but then it's lights out unless he shows he can think on his feet and answer tough questions from reporters.

The Durham Report and the Republican Convention might be the final nail in Biden's coffin. Most blacks are not enthused about Kamala Harris, whose relative owned 200 slaves in Jamaica in the late 1800s, and like how Trump lowered black unemployment to record lows. Ironically, Obama still holds records for high black unemployment.

Bandit said...

Kamala Ferraro was the last nail in his coffin. The race card gained nothing. In fact, many blacks don't like her.
