Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.

The difference being, Trump actually said this, 10:50.

The Real News.....Not The MSM Bullshit said...

The Dailey Beast is ran by Editor in Chief Noah Shachtman who makes no bones about it, he hates Trump. The Beast is as well anti Trump so hence we have an anti Trump story.

Watch the video you asshats and Rudy appears to be trying to get her to calm down not shut her up. Yes she appears to be annoying but a lot of that could be her voice. But she is passionate about what she saw and to that I tip my hat. I like her comment where she throws back the fact she signed a statement that if proved she is lying could land her in jail. So far these hearings have not proved in anyway that what she said isn't the truth. Just because a Judge didn't want to believe her statement does not indeed make it false.

You assholes on here need to seek the truth and not walk around with your heads up your ass.

Biden hires all-female senior communications team

Wow is that suppose to be some real news? Hell Trump did it first. Joe is now going to save the economy after his party blocked Trump right and left from doing so.

Biden targets virus as his White House transition begins! That means he will ride on the coat tails of what the Trump crews and pharmaceutical giants already have in place and putting into action as I speak here.

Typical Democratic let someone else do all the work then take credit for it all.

Obummer and billy would shove their parents and grandparents to the fucking ground to get the vaccine first, fucking pussies. Real former presidents wouldn’t cut to the front of the line, they would show leadership in saying, hey, everybody gets the vaccine before we do, not these clowns, they’re scared they might get the China flu and die.

It won’t be a loss when they finally do!

entirely to busy with all that noise from the brubeck sample - one could dissect that one single track and come up with enough ideas to cut an entire album - too much going on without saying much.

matter of fact you could name the album "too much going on without saying much" - you're welcome.

The presidency is now for sale. The Biden crime family is in charge, and Hunter is out interviewing for Boards of Directors' positions.

BLM will see no Fed bucks until 2024, when this upcoming pathetic administration is on the ropes, and needs the black vote again. It's already getting hillary-ous. BLM units are wondering where all the money the central headquarters amassed is. AOC is pissed nobody important will now pay attention to her. Bernie bros are super pissed for the same reason.

Sleazy Joe is naming losers to his cabinet, even considering bringing John Fucking Swiftboat Horsefaced Kerry back to life!!!! His OMB choice is absurd. She hasn't a clue.

This may be fun to watch if we can avoid a war, but that's doubtful. Trump's attempts to bring our troops home were thwarted by reps and senators with their hands out to lobbyists, on behalf of those who profit from overseas posting. Dims love war, and wars are very, very profitable for certain folks. Perhaps China can build our tanks and aircraft for us as he reverses Trump's success in returning manufacturing back to the US.

Paris Accords simply means fuck us and let everyone else burn all the fossil fuel they want while we are supposed to cut back, putting miners and the petroleum out of business. Wind and solar won't do shit, and the progs hate nuclear.

$6.00/gal gas likely.

Happy 2121
