They don’t recognize the authority of the people, as expressed through their representatives, assembled.

Boom goes the dynamite...

She's starting to look like Granny from the Beverly HIllbillys
Granny from the Hillbillies was way better looking than Cankles.
I do love it when snake oil salesman Carney is caught in yet another lie. This whole administration is a joke.
OMG great pics - great comparo!
Carney’s gone-—like five of the detainees....
...and America’s honor.
Lies are a daily practice of the Democrat party.
Too much Room-a-tiz medicine is what made Hillary fall down and go BOOM
