DoubleRinNKY HA!! Bet you said the same thing about Russians in 2016😂😂 But you see how “David Karesh , Jim Jones, that Space guy”, got their cult to fall on their swords for them‼️ The Republican Party and representatives thereof have long been short on evidence and obeying the rule of law. ideal gift for a Trump supporter and even for those who don't support him! Take a look and you'll see why ;-)

Trump cheats at everything including golf. If he doesn’t cheat, he can hardly win. If it was possible for anyone to cheat in the election, Trump would be the one to do it. It’s ironic when a cheater is crying about being cheated. “I didn’t win, so it wasn’t fair.” DiaperDon We need to have an air tight investigation for the good of USA. The General public will not be happy With anything less .

Trump engages in fact abuse.
