Give that lady a break. The whole country talks trash about Trump when they think nobody is listening.

Trump has no idea who his Sister is - he never once met her, he never liked her, and every word she said on that tape recording is "Fake News", just designed by the Democratic Party and MSM to overthrow a duly elected President.

So use lies and invective to distract from the facts that Democrats push the violent crime rate higher and protest those who try and lower it because y'all PROFIT from minorities being killed.

When the state banned probation for murder convictions, Democrats cried out.

Lying about what "local control" and "small government" mean. Gaslighting darvo liars. Look up darvo - it's what you do.

When the Feds came in to catch people with open warrants Democrats cried out.

America can stop Dems from profiting off minorities being killed, but the Democrat party stands in our way.

"DARVO refers to a reaction perpetrators of wrong doing, particularly sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. DARVO stands for "Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender.""

And they also think a bigger toy choo choo is needed in Kansas Shitty. That proves they don't know much.

$84 mil for a fancy complex in a shithole part of the city overlooking a sewage canal is par for the course in Kansas Shitty. It will be garbage in 5 years if it isn't looted and burnt before completion.

9:04. True. There may be photos of the two of them together, but he takes photos with a lot of people. He never actually met her.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Those photographs are faked too, @12:05 - he never met his Sister at all - ever!

They're fakes just like the ones the KGB has of him in that room at the Moscow Hilton, and those phony videos of Melania and the six guys!

Come to think of it, he never met Melania either!

@ 9:31 thank you!

Now we all know that this Country sat through eight years of Republican DARVO when Obama was in Office, and we've just been subjected to four years of DARVO coming from the White House!

I've always called it "lying bullshit", but DARVO is much more polite. Again, thank you.

So is it a safe bet that Maryanne Whatshername won't be speaking at the Republican National Convention along with the other five members of Trump's immediate Family?
But what about Tiffany? She get a shot?

Unless that 84 mil is going to bulldoze large sections of the east side, nothing is getting remade in KC.

Proving Democrats refuse to read. Proving Democrats refuse to accept reality and they sure as hell refuse to accept responsibility for their actions.

They may no have a personal understanding of shame (that requires a sense of morality, psychopaths don't have this) but they do understand social shame. The loss of face.

Presented with a clear description of their philosophical and behavioral history, they have to lash out.

I suspect there will be some cats that get kicked tonight. Maybe some goldfish flushed while still alive.

Yet when Dems do it, even bringing a crack head, brother widow banging cheater - it's holy gospel and cannot be questioned.

Darvo dude. You keep proving how the "sexual predator" mindset is so applicable to Democrats.

"DARVO refers to a reaction perpetrators of wrong doing, particularly sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. DARVO stands for "Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender." "

Anonymous said...

Literally conducting it for us, right now.

Deny, attack, reverse victim and offender.

Democrats are not critical thinkers.

Democrats are critical. All they know how to do is bitch.

Anonymous said...

@5:00 and exactly what do you think Trump has been doing for four years, if not "Deny, attack, reverse victim and
offender"? That has been his standard tactic when confronted with every one of his lies and every proof of his amorality.

Obama set several records related to black unemployment during his eight years in office-- record highs, that is. Trump's business acumen lowered black, Hispanic, female and several other unemployment figures to record lows. Trump has been the best president for blacks since Abraham Lincoln. The Dems have done nothing to help blacks out of poverty. They want to keep them poor and needy.
