    What do you do when your boss shows up at you house uninvited, unannounced on your day off? And you are forced to be confronted by him/her while you are in your pajamas because you were sleeping when it happened. It’s stressful to your family and very upsetting for everybody. There is absolutely no pretend excuse for being co fronted except that he or she is mad. It had no impact on the company being able to function.

    JFK had been expounding on a plan to change American culture and everything as we know it.” He brought this up in his commencement speech to the graduating class at the University of Miami in 1963. He told the graduating class he was “going to use his bully pulpit to expose it”. It cost him and his brother their lives and that PLOT by Liberals has come to fruition for the most part.

      He accepts the salary, then writes a check to the organization, which he knows very well they can’t legally cash. The check is sent back to him, which we never hear him talk about. Even if this weren’t the case, he’s made millions billing the taxpayers for rooms at Mar-A-Lago and a dozen other scams. He also still owes millions to a dozen cities for expenses related to MAGA rallies, which are not covered by taxpayer money, or aren’t supposed to be.

    In Michigan, nearly two dozen nursing homes were designated to take in coronavirus-positive patients. These facilities were paid $5,000 for every patient taken in, on top of a daily fee for each. Barely half of these locations had even been inspected. The state legislature, already upset with the governess, has become angry over the policy.

    The promises and predictions in the media have been plentiful. The failing of those pandemic predictions has nearly been as widespread. When it comes to bad policy there has been far less enthusiasm. The policy of sending patients who were positive for the coronavirus into nursing homes, alongside the most vulnerable segment of our population. This completely wrong-headed decision was not just isolated to Gov. Cuomo’s realm. A number of other governors have also had this policy in their states, yet the national press has not been dutiful in reporting these examples.

    Former President Barack Obama is a smooth-talking liar. He uses his tongue like a brush to paint vivid word pictures so believable, the clueless swoon, believing every word. Likewise, his administration followed his lead, spinning a web of corruption we’re only now starting to unravel. We had no idea how far, deep, and wide the corruption within the Obama administration reached. That is until the Michael Flynn unmaskers were themselves, unmasked. We now see up close how much Obama and his administration, along with Deep State players in various three-letter agencies and leftist-run media, bartered in corruption, lies, and the weaponization of government power.

    The comments from Joe Biden were truly offensive……but a rare and honest insight into liberals thinking. Liberals believe you really can’t be black, Latino, female, or intelligent unless you support their liberal agenda. This attitude is wearing thin and one of the reasons President Trump will be reelected.

      FUN FACT: Last August, Trump said: “I think any Jewish people that votes for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.” so, TRUMP FANS, PLEASE SPARE ME YOUR AKE OUTRAGE ABOUT BIDEN.

    Since Joe has been in lockdown and doesn’t have anyone to police what he says and does-he’s finally showing his true colors!

    Really a repulsive thing to say, and more evidence that even today in 2020 the Democratic Party continues its long history of exploiting minority voters for political gain. Now this is the kind of overt racism the media should be calling out.

      The issue wasn’t what Joe Biden said, because it was accurate. The issue was that it came from Biden. It also was clearly a joke that didn’t land. But I’m wondering where all this outrage was yesterday when y’all president declared his public devotion to a Nazi sympathizer.

        Lysol/Clorox was a joke also, but the media spun it into a frenzy.

          You know that it wasn’t a joke. You can tell by the reactions of the people around him. They were horrified. With Biden, watch the entire interview. His demeanor shows it was a joke. The only time Trump ever jokes is when he tells his supporters he is doing everything he does because he cares about them.

            In today’s shock culture, every tiny statement, even in jest, is micro-analyzed and played to an audience to anyone’s benefit. Some dolt said again today in here that Trump was joking when he told Americans during an official press conference about tens of thousands of dead citizens to inject bleach into themselves. What kind of person jokes at that moment? No one laughed, there was no levity in that time. He meant it. I didn’t watch Biden’s remark about who’s black or not, seems like a dumb joke that fell flat. Along that note, if you are black, you must be the dumbest bamboozled moron on the planet to vote for Donny, he clearly hates you unless you are shining his shoes, but hey, you do you.

          Trump was dead serious when he told Americans to inject themselves with bleach. No one laughed, it was a serious moment. The video doesn’t lie.
