Trump to ‘make America great again, again!’  Meanwhile, reports continue to surface that say President Trump upon winning re-election on November 3 will fire both the corrupt director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, and Deep State apparatchik CIA Director Gina Haspel.  Both of them should have been terminated long ago but look for it to occur on November 4.  Elsewhere, rapper 50 Cent retracts his endorsement of President Trump following his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler, a bleach blond, saying he ‘ain’t black if he supports Trump’ and that she would throw another round of poontang on him if he retracted his endorsement.’  Dude, you can muff anywhere.

Cuomo, you, sir, are a murderer for having sent COVID-19-infected persons into rest homes where they could infect vulnerable populations.  Shame on you!
  58. 2020 Monday B: Hillary Clinton, disgruntled loser of the 2016 presidential election declares that ‘Republicans are cowards, that they are spineless, enablers of Donald Trump.’  Thank you for your input, loser.  Meanwhile, the Kremlin blasts “Pro-China Joe” Biden for spreading Russia hatred and for being a Russophobe.  Shame on you, Joe.  Democrats have always worshipped Russia so why you attacking them now and not the flipping Chi-Coms?  Wow.  What a day, going to be busy.  Speaking of Trump, he is barnstorming Pennsylvania today with THREE BIG RALLIES ahead of Election Day.  Polls show “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of four points.  Oh, oh.

  61. 2020 Monday E: The Washing Post writes that ‘we must treat the Hunter Biden laptop story as a foreign intelligence operation even though it’s probably not.’  Wow.  And they claim Russia ‘owns Donald Trump.’  Friends, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, and the Iranians own former Vice President Joe Biden.  Dire news for Biden-Harris: Rasmussen has Trump’s job approval rating at 52-percent.

  64. 2020 Monday H: The U.S. Senate votes to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the nation’s 115th Associate Supreme Court justice by a vote of 52-48.  Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called this the ‘darkest day in American history’ and vowed revenge when Democrats hold power. Other Democrat senators like Richard “Dick” aka “Hobgoblin” Blumenthal and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, she of phony Indian heritage vow ‘they’ll get even’ especially since President Trump did not ‘honor’ the purported dying wishes of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who wanted another president to fill her seat.  Folks, she could have retired under President Obama but believed- erroneously so- that the fix was in for Hillary Rodham Clinton and the first female president would nominate her successor.  Wah, wah, wah.  Ah, well, congratulations, Associate Justice Barrett.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court will not permit a mail-in ballot extension in the state of Wisconsin.
  65. 2020 Monday I: Monday Night Football: the Chicago Bears (5-2) are in Los Angeles playing the Rams (5-2).  The Rams won 24-10.
