THAT cannot happen soon enough. We are in desperate need of a new party.
McConnell is a pure dumb ars! He is too dense to understand how Trump works and Trump is always right. Turkey has now cease fire and it looks like it might be permanent. As for the rest of the Republican fools, beyond intelligence.
That’s his lobbyists talking.
Turtle needs to check breaking news before he continues to make a bigger fool of himself. Need more judges mitch.
Well, Mitch, you’ve opened your mouth and removed all doubt.
Totally in character.
Total snake in the grass waiting for the President to turn his back so he can slide another blade in.
“O ye of little faith.”
Yes, I despise (most) of them and they clearly despise us.
Sounds like Mitch will add a ‘poison pill’ - something too strong for the House Dems- and kill it all.
And his Chinese wife.
China wants the US to spend all our money and the lives of our young people in that G-d forsaken sandhole.
US blows up its own ammunition dumps in Syria to prevent weapons falling into the wrong hands
