Corrupt China Joe Biden will NEVER be the President of 80 million Americans.

^^^ He sure as hell will be on January 20th, so unless you can accept it, go find someplace else to sit, squeal and sulk. We had to put up with Trumps lies, greed and incompetence for four years while you lot shrieked hatred at us and did your best to destroy everything that has made this Country great, but Patriotism and Americanism are back now, and your divisiveness and destructiveness failed.

Some say evolution of the soul is in three stages over the course of many lifetimes: vegetable animal and human.
Vegetable is primarily concerned with survival food and sex.
Animal is concerned with money power fame.
Human is concerned with ethics, taking responsibility for their free will, soul, and spirit,serving God as God sees Himself through us.

@10:32, the other 230 million of us have just come through four years of not having a President, we've been ignored and battered and abused, but we have survived.

Now the 80 million you claim to exist have the choice of either isolating yourselves in a bitter cocoon of hate and fear or coming to terms with reality.

The World has moved past the brief aberration of Trumpism, why don't you try moving along with it?

6:50. They spent four years dredging slime pits looking for anything and anything and never found a single thing with which to smear President Trump that was real. It was all fake. The piss dossier. The Russian collusion. The Ukrainian phone call. None of it amounted to a hill of beans. Hunter Biden has more dirt in his little pinky than the Trump families have in all their bodies. China Joe Biden enabled him and profited from his international sleaze racket. There is your worse human being.

I guess snorting cocaine off a 13 year old's ass is acceptable behavior for the new "alleged" son-in-chief. Just one of the disgusting things on his Laptop From Hell the MSM buried months ago, that has now magically come back to the surface, since the dust has settled. I hope they do a forensics screen on everything on it and expose the vile BIDET family for the pieces of corrupt shit they are.
