18. The point in not watching is not giving ratings to the stations who should not be airing this

in the first place.

The best thing in the world for us would be if the ratings on this flopped. He is a vampire who lives on our attention. When he gets it he will use it to destroy us. If he doesn't get it, he will shrivel.

And you say you'd like to hear it yourself and form your own opinions. Are you expecting that he might win you over? Are you expecting that the whole thing will not be lies? Are you expecting that the wall will suddenly make sense? If not, what opinions are you thinking he will change tonight?

Watch the pundits, watch the Democrats. Turn your back on him.

I'm with you. NT WeekiWater Jan 2019 #1
