Joe Biden is not the president he was never elected by the people, not even close. What happened in this country was the biggest act of tyranny we have ever seen. When tyranny becomes law rebellion becomes duty......Thomas Jefferson.

Presidents are NEVER elected by the people, @9:37 - they are elected by the Electoral College.

There is a pretty close relationship between the Popular Vote for President and the Electoral College though, so one could say that "the People" USUALLY elect the President.

In all 59 of the Presidential Elections so far, there have only been 4 instances where the Electoral College put a President who had not gained a majority of the Popular Vote into Office.

All four of those Presidents (Hayes, McKinley, Bush 2 and Trump) have been Republicans, but that is understandable, given the historical maakeup of the American Voters, who have since 1920 been 40% Independent, 37% Democrat and 23% Republican.

Sorry you weren't taught any of this in School.

Remember that time when Eric Swalwell threatened American gun owners with nuclear weapons? Then there was that time he farted on live TV. And who could ever forget when he was banging a Chinese spy and honeypot? Fang Fang Bang Bang! Good times.

Thanks Alec! Speaking of assholishness, you're the poster child. Most drunken has-beens don't make a second career out of family abuse and being a dick in general.

Loved Red October tho!

9:37 just got back from the Trump inauguration, it was a beautiful event full of pomp and circumstance jets flying over head, battleships blazing in the Potomac, thousands of marching troops and bands. What a glorious sight to see and witness

Too bad we have Siler Alert Biden, who treats the National Guard like his private army and hides from the press and the people so they won't know how far gone he is.

So you thought Trump would fulfill the long-awaited prophecy known as "the storm" and order the mass arrests and executions of satanic pedophiles? Trump's friends like Epstein and Maxwell are the pedophiles and its possible Trump has had sex with underaged girls too! If Trump doesnt follow God, then he follows Satan - could he be everything Q-anon hates? I dont think Trump has turned over his heart and free will and life to God. A matter of fact, he never mentioned God once the whole time he was in office!
