Where was everyone's opinion about the murderous BLM and ANTIFA when they were on a killing spree and burning cities down? BTW some of those people in the capitol building were ANTIFA. I guess it's O.K. for dirty black people to kill and riot and no one says a thing about it even when they shot and killed a police officer for no reason. You radical left people are gutter trash. Take your BLM and shove it up your selfish asses you filthy SCUM

Nothing else could possibly satisfy the American People after what he ordered his thugs to do to the Capitol!

When the virus vaccine gets to the KCMO health department, I hope someone tells Archer not to drink it.
Given what's gone on so far, you really have to question his medical expertise.
Probably time for another grandiose press conference with him and smiley selfies Lucas.
When you're not accomplishing much of anything, try to wow the crowd with another show.
