    Trump had the stench of defeat on him last night.

    Does anyone else think he will go completely bonkers after he loses?

          Who cares. We know Trump is a man that gets stuff done. Is he always the most tactful and the best orator? No, but he does what he says he’s going to do.

          I know there is a sizeable contingent of voters that like status quo, that like a leader that sits on their hands and do nothing but collect a taxpayer funded salary (look at Branstad or Obama for evidence of this). For those of us that aren’t afraid of change and moving the needle, Trump is our guy!

    Twenty-two presidents were faced with the scenario of replacing a Supreme Court seat in an election year, some with multiple openings. Those presidents went forward to nominate someone — 29 times. So to suggest it is wrong for Trump to do so now is operating from ignorance…

    1950’s SAGA of a JOE BIDEN – Roosevelt middle school -GYM arrived for gym and we were told to go to the stadium/football field – when we arrived we were told to line up for a 100 yard dash across. I was looking at the coach down about 25′ right of me -approx. 25/30 boys for the race – while looking at the coach I seen him push off the kid whose dad owned the local sporting goods store and which the school bought from – when BOY was out there on his second step the coach fired his blank pistol and everyone was off! Of course he beat me by a yard and was the winner- Setup? He was the only kid in sweatpants and tennis shoes -the rest of us were in street clothes and penny loafers. – moral of story -he went out for track and was a disaster at the first meet – Holy Holly he claimed he sprained his ankle and was out for the season -still got his letter -seems like if old JOE cons his way to president the same way then bows out we have Cameltoe/AOC/the mpls bitch and schumer along with the Chinese in charge. Phony Bastard.
