Okay, they've now made (and remade) Movies of all the Novels, Short Stories, Plot Outlines and Post-it notes that Ian Fleming ever wrote, and Sean Connery has passed away, it's time to end the James Bond series.

Joe Biden was doing his low outcome rally and he called Trump supporters ugly fucks but it came out ugly felks because he can't speak with his dementia and all. Funny how these democrat idiots don't even know what's going on and how they "the democrats" are using this virus to bring in the totalitarian global life they have been pushing slowly for years. If you think this virus happened by China and only China you are the biggest MORON ever, but of course democrats have always been stupid look at the Obama administration and how he killed small business and built up big business. Don't get confused though when you hear Joe Biden say he's running for senate and running against George, you all know he's running for President....don't you?

Irony of irony, the NBC article on the suppression of the Hunter/Joe Biden scandal can't be accessed.

Talking to George Stephanopoulos, Biden said "George, Trump doesn't...".
Now, since Trump's supporters can't understand what a comma means, the Liars who tell them what to say now claim Biden "thought Trump's first name was George", and the herd parrots that lie constantly.

Rest assured, Biden and everyone else in the Real Word knows Trump's first name is "Asshole"!

9:07: And yet it can be, Chuck. Just go to the lower left of the popup and hit "continue without support." Weird.

Amazing that a blind computer repair guy, who is--SURPRISE!--a Trump supporter and who can't for sure say he was given the laptop by the real Hunter Biden (since he is, after all, blind), which computer was never picked is not deemed a reliable source. This has all the marks of yet another Giuliani FUBAR.

"'Politically correct': Trump pokes Fox News Host Laura Ingraham for wearing a mask"

Ah, the Trump Limbo Rock. How low can you go?

I don't have a horse in the race for presidency since I am not a citizen, but, I want to see all of you Trump haters come back here and talk smack if he wins. When you have to defend every gaffe Biden makes (he was referring to George Bush, but go ahead, believe the senatorial candidate), every elide, garble, every mistake, it's proof you are propping up a candidate. Trump says some crazy stupid shit, but he is in command of what he is saying, truth, lie, or exaggeration. It's obvious to anyone who doesn't watch mainstream media only that Biden, unless he's pumped full of vitamins, can't speak extemporaneously. If you aren't aware of this, then your Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube overlords have done their job. C'mon, man!

^^^^Many people have difficulty speaking extemporaneously. I'm one of them. I like to check facts before I speak, which works better for me than saying whatever inanities are hanging in the ether, as our president does, and letting the chips fall where they may.

Trump cheated on Melania while she was pregnant and had unprotected sex with a porn actress. How totally gross and unchristian. Then paid her 150k to say nothing! What do Trump supporters have to say about that?

Anonymous said...

Trump is no Christian - this per Jesus Christ and HIS beatitudes which he spoke, in order for followers like us, to ascertain who is a real Christian and who is NOT! There are wheat and weeds, sheep and goats. Real and fake followers, Jesus warned. He was betrayed by a fake, Judas.

Read the beatitudes = Trump has not 1 Christian trait mentioned by Jesus.

Oh the "judge not" argument? Sure sinners dont want to be judged so they bring that verse up. its the only Bible verse they know. Christ wants his follower to be like him. He judged many people when he was here. And will judge more on the day of judgement. So yes, Christians may judge someone as right, wrong, good, or evil as Christ did. God gave us a brain and we are to use it. If a Christian tells you that you are a sinner, and God's judgement awaits you one day, you may want to listen. It might be correct. You may be able to reconcile with God. Trump having unprotected sex with a porn star while married is not something a Christian follower filled with the Holy Spirit is going to do. And Trump had many affairs. He is not a true Christian. Its obvious.
