    Donald’s day just keeps getting worse…

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Former campaign manager for Donald Trump, Brad Parscale, who was replaced by the President less than four months before the 2020 election, was reportedly armed with a gun and threatening to harm himself at his Fort Lauderdale home on Sunday afternoon.

    Police responded to a home in the upscale Seven Isles neighborhood around 4 p.m. in reference to a man barricaded inside a house. When officers arrived on the scene, they made contact with the woman, the man’s wife, who had called 911. She told police that her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the house and was threatening to kill himself.

        Mr. Biden has worked with advisers to create nonprofits and academic centers while holding a paid professorship at the University of Pennsylvania. His campaign said in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Biden had worked to “generate ideas on how we can help rebuild the American middle class, strengthen global leadership and end cancer as we know it.”

        Mr. Biden has also given dozens of paid speeches, including to universities and business leaders, with fees as high as $234,820. And in 2017, he and his wife signed a three-book deal with Flatiron Books, which was reported to be worth $8 million. After the announcement, they purchased a six-bedroom vacation house in Rehoboth Beach, Del., for $2.7 million.

      Trump is like a fattened calf. All orange and pink and tasty around the edges, creamy veal delite. The cotton candy on his scalp wold just melt in a girls mouth I think. I do like mushroom on my pizza. He can dip his wrnkley forest shroom in my Italian red sauce any time he likes just as long as he settles the lawsuit quickly.

      Wall Street contributors fund the one they think will win. They’ve enjoyed their fun during the Dumpster’s term, but know that it will inevitably, and soon, collapse the economy completely. It’s more self-interest.

He has every right to permit or prohibit whatever he wants on property he owns.

      Yes, at almost zero percent interest rates, it’s a good time to invest in almost anything. That’s why the stock market is so high.

      But that 25 million could be spent on far better things than a sports complex.
