    "So what makes her qualified for this job? It probably isn’t all the money she’s made peddling racism"

    She's white ergo, a racist. It's science. This tactic is working so well for the Dems.

    have you watched WWF/WWE?

    you don't think their gross caricatures of other cultures/nationalities isn't racist? the iron shiek, chief jay strongbow, virgil - that isn't racist? the misogony & sex is obvious.....but are you really going to try and defend the WWE as wholesome entertainment?


    she PEDDLED racism - that really isn't disputable - didn't say she IS a racist, she just got rich off of, in part, selling racial stereotypes - that is indisputable fact

    Yes. That's how it works in the world of politics. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Trump certainly isn't the first to hire unqualified donors.



    one of his largest platforms was also all about 'cleaning up DC' and 'draining the swamp' - he ran on being an outsider, and not continuing to do business as usual, to changing the system of lobbyists and big money donors running the show


    what's the most alarming is how quickly his supporters still rush to his defense despite every single action he's undertaken since the election showing how badly they were scammed.......

    So does SNL and Key and Peel, and Chappelle, and Prior, and Carlin, and countless other entertainers and forms of entertainment. ****, can we not even laugh at each other anymore? I need to start building my safe space I guess. These entertainers have done more good for race relations than any of this PC warrior **** will ever do. It gets people talking about a common ground. Comedy, it's just comedy.

    Let's face it, the left has played the racist card so frivolously that it barely means anything anymore. Everyone is pretty much a racist now whether they know it or not. Well, everyone except the democrats I guess.

    Cucks don't want to admit they are cucks. It takes a level of self examination that eludes their fragile sensibilities.

    you said you were voting for change!!!
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    This is pretty true. If Trump is one thing for certain, it's anti-regulation. He's got an Education Secretary who doesn't believe in public education. The head of the EPA is a climate change skeptic currently suing the EPA. The Health Secretary is anti-ACA. The new Labor Secretary runs a fast food company and has been publicly quoted as saying machines "are always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there's never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex or race discrimination case."

    There's really been nothing like this.

    Colonials just don't get it. :)

    At least until the Germans took over, Rolls' were for those at Calais and East, or the nouveau riche. Ditto for Jaguar and Daimler. Real aristos wouldn't be caught dead in a Rolls newer than the 1950s or in a Jaguar, especially a not V-12; they bought Bentleys and Daimler Double Sixes.

    Well, the upshot is that we don't have to go to war with Iran. Just throw these tow gentlemen into a cage match and may the best man win!
