Just read a story where Trump said he didnt mind being called a racist. Nice. Must be a tough life knowing you cant condemn some one because it goes against your party, when you know its wrong. Thats just living a lie. Does these people have mirrors in their homes.

What racist tweets?

In this day in time:
If you disagree with someone, obviously they are a racist!
If you don't like what someone says, obviously they are a racist!
If you are white, obviously you are a racist!
If you align yourself as a Republican, obviously you are a racist!
If you are an Independent, obviously you are a racist!
If you are a Democrat but disagree with the "new socialists" in the party, obviously you are a racist!
If your name is Joe Biden, obviously you are a racist!
By the way, just what is a racist?

I don't care if people call me racist either.

1) I know I'm not.

2) Name calling stopped being effective somewhere around the third or fourth grade.

I'd say Trump probably feels about the same.

That was the purpose of the vote. It forced GOP reps to vote to support the hate pouring out of the White House.

Hope someone got that on tape as it'll make a good commercial for his opponent in the next election - but nothing earth shattering because it's something well known for awhile - since he was charged with the Fair Housing Act.

And the "Squad" and Dems in general dropped the ball on condemning that terrorist ANTIFA creep who tried to attack the ICE facility with guns and firebombs. When asked directly about it they just turned turtle.

We like Trump and appreciate him calling out far left wing, America hating nut jobs.


Let's see who is more popular in 2020- Trump or "the squad"!


Omar and AOC are hated by most mainstream Americans (the people who vote). Trump completely won in this match, as now the dems are stuck with those whack jobs as the new face of the dems.


Trump will use AOC and Omar in campaign ads to frighten America, as they should be, if the policies of those whack jobs are initiated.


America does not like radical Muslims or open borders. The dems now own those two philosophies.

All of them, except for a couple, have folded........thrown in the towel. They, for some unknown reason, are absolutely fearful of his wrath. When one of them dares to do something contrary to what Trump wants, he blasts them on Twitter and they whimper and slink away like a whipped dog.

The worst of the lot is McConnell. He reminds me of one of those two Muppets who sit in the balcony, complaining about everything. He is about as low as his leader Trump. What a weaka** ! Stand up and do what the American people elected you, and pay you, to do, for God's sake !

But everything has a breaking point. Sooner or later, some of them will have had enough of his garbage and treasonous behavior, and they will be forced to do the right things. But, from what I am seeing from them, they are going to hide in the shadows for a very long time.
