Of course, everytime I go to Twitter, Trump’s posts show up with the intro: “Presudent Trump” retweeted." Who retweets their own posts?

After all it was Epstein who introduced Melania to Donald. You can tell a lot about a person from their friends.

This was according to Epstein but not confirmed. Not that I don’t believe it, but others have disputed it.

If it’s “totally fine” to secure Russian help to win an election, to use the presidency as a means to make personal financial gains, to lie to the public more than 12,000 times in less than 1000 days, to equate white supremacists with people protesting racism, to enact policies which are themselves overtly racist, to pardon law enforcement officials who violate arrestees’ Constitutional rights, to stonewall legitimate Congressional oversight, to repeatedly obstruct a lawful investigation and to generally undermine the foundations of this democracy, then I guess it is “totally fine” to retweet a bogus conspiracy theory.

When you deliberately propagate a malicious rumor, you take ownership of it.

"As you know, Bill Barr wants to do an entire investigation of the whole Epstein matter. What happened, he’s been going on for a long time, the whole Epstein episode, and I know it’s under investigation by Attorney General Barr,” he said.

Yep and that’s what we’re worried about, your personal attorney doing the investigation.

“I want a full investigation, and that’s what I am absolutely demanding.”

Right, we are convinced you’re demanding a full investigation.

27 times? Multiple legs on a flight i.e. stopping to refuel, is not the same thing as individual flights.

“It’s totally fine” whatever I decide. Now that Barr has either not found blaring Dump evidence of screwing little girls like Epstein did or has already found and destroyed it.
On last night’s national news disBarr displayed a brand new Barr. It was like a Barrmercial.
