WTAF??? REALLY? [View all]

“Donald Trump has adopted a more moderate tone” is what I’m hearing in the vaunted MSM.

Really…? Hannibal Lecter has apparently also decided that he prefers kidney beans rather than fava beans with the cooked liver and Chianti.

When is somebody on TV going to literally throw down the prepared script and just do the equivalent of what Joseph Welch did to McCarthy? Enough is goddamned enough of this utter bullshit and lies, this modern Hitlerian regime, this tinhorn Stalin/Mussolini. It’s like going to the Carnival that opened outside of town and trying to win that game where you drop the discs and try to cover the red dot. When is it the end of being bullshat to? Wake the Fuck up America and stop listening to this already and send this asshole back to his lair where he can sell rancid steaks and putrid water to the complete idiots.
