        Wait. I just realized...holy shit, Trump actually gave a time frame when claiming he had the lowest unemployment in 51 years...he usually just claims whatever he does is the best "ever" or a vague "in a long time" - and he seemed clear when he said it. So either he finally learn to read teleprompters properly amd they had the info, or he is so nervous about the impeachment he actually gave a time frame rather than his usual hyperbole.

            I think it is funny when the Democrats talk about Republicans toeing the party line. What in the blazes do the Democrats do? Hollywood, all the late night so called comedians, a large majority of the newspapers,ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN all fall right in line with the Democrat talking points. A survey was done and 90% of the media vote Democrat, so. . .

                      A lot of you seem very negative of Trump... but guess how he got voted in? Yeah, weak republican candidates, voted in by dumb Americans because the Democrats had very bad candidates like Hilary Clinton. Maybe, Democracy doesn't always work...

                                Why do people think the economy has anything to do with the current president? It’s a reflection of the previous president.

                                                                                          1. At the airport. Avoid jokes about bombs, guns, hijacking, etc.
                                                                                          2. When testifying. Stick to the truth and nothing but the truth. Kidding around is not generally approved by the judge.
                                                                                          3. When giving a press conference claiming your innocence. Don't then jokingly commit the same crime that you are accused of.

You all told me to "take your meds" and that I was "bat-shit crazy". Now EVERYONE is reporting it. It's remarkable to us on the Right how your Media has taught you to *RUN AWAY FROM ANY TRUTH YOU DON'T LIKE.* Absolutely remarkable.
