Is he going to try to organize Chicago again?

Because it worked out so well the first time he tried it.

Please don’t remind us. The less I hear about the former Enemy in Chief the better.

Cant wait to see what the high school kids have to say. I seek them out for all major life decisions. Just to bask in the waves of their vast stores of knowledge and experience is awe inspiring

He was very quietly at Dan Rooney’s funeral the other day and then slid back under his rock.

"Monday will be the day to have your TV turned off."

No problem. I've got plenty of DVR material, not to mention Netflix, plus other stuff I can watch, and my books. I don't ever watch live TV unless it's something important, like the election of 2016, and Trump's Inauguration.

I think “Un-Presidential” is more accurate!

This piece of crap needs to be a Federal Prison along with Lynch, Holder, Comey and Rice awaiting trial and execution for Treason.
