    Imagine a party with Cruz, Gaetz, Trump, Carlson, Hannity, and all of the other FOX NEWS hosts? My god I'd be suicidal if I were asked to attend such a crap fest...HORRENDOUSLY DEPRESSING!! I'd rather pull my own teeth and finger nails out, and remove my own kidneys with a rusty spoon.

    Joe Bidens press conference was a joke, completely scripted asking him what ice cream he likes. It was like watching reporters talking to a child... Why not show how he has been in office for 120 years, or him giving up to answer questions wasn't just this one that looney left Seth showed here... Your President is just a old man being used as a puppet while the elite control him, you've all lost it if you think that press conference of his was successful. PS:Seth is a dirty communist

    Biden was never near the center let alone left of it. He is a right-wing neoliberal Reaganite conservative and always has been. Partisan attacks against him by sellout Repubs do not magically make him more liberal than conservative.

    Why is multiculturalism foisted on EVERY White country and ONLY on White countries? Why aren't ANY White countries permitted to maintain their own race and culture? This is not done to any non-White country. Assimilation and integration are foisted ONLY on White countries. They call this anti-racist, but the end result is the elimination of only one race, the White race. Multiculturalism is a codeword for White genocide. Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

But its fine we all know Joe isn't the greatest with number that or he's setting the bar so incredibly low for himself it would literally be impossible to fail.

This virus is just a flu . If you have a weak immune system then take precautions so the rest of us can run the world , pay our bills and live as we have . Let the government look after those people . Focus on them and stop shutting everything down . It's really about control and not our health.

      And that selfish, entitled mode of thinking is like me saying that I have the right NOT to wear pants and wave my tackle at every mask-less person I see. It states loudly and clearly NOT that you're free but rather that you couldn't care less about anyone else. But two people liked your comment so I guess that makes you Mr. Popular for the day.

But we survived! Only to have Bidden arranging to hike my property tax so high I’ll loose the house and he will stuff illegals in it with me. While you enjoy Hating Trump and all of middle America.
