Funny how the blacks in the city get by with discrimination but the white people get crucified for nothing and accused of things that aren't true.

The Kansas City Chiefs suffer losses when they disrespected this country that has been so good to them. They are scum. The lowest of the low.

If Obama wants to reach out he needs to keep his ignorant mouth shut. He speaks out of both side of his mouth one minute bashing the right and the next putting out this reaching out BS. He points a finger at Trump calling him a dictator but yet Obama is the one that force a dictatorship down our throats by making people pay a penalty if they didn't buy insurance and making people pay for someone else's abortion with their tax money. That's a dictator. Oh and it was Obama who colluded with Russia not Trump. Remember when he whispered in Putin's ear?? Wait until after the election when I have more leverage.
