Quote of the Day


"Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me. Could you imagine if I lose? What am I gonna do? I'm not gonna feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country. I don't know."


Promise?? Infected, impeached POTUS Trump at a rally discussing his future plans should he lose to 'Sleepy Joe.' I for one would have to say that he finally has come up with a plan that I could agree with. Somehow after November 3rd, I envision the Trumps packing up in the middle of the night just like the Saudi contingent right after 9/11, and fleeing the country.
