Trump’s TV Boast; Is Biden Demented?

What we’re going through now reminds me of 9-11 and its aftermath, which includes the invasion of Iraq. Lot of people made money from that, and a lot of soldiers lost their lives. Yet, today, W is considered a statesman even though I consider him to be a war criminal. Cheney, too. All of Bush’s inner circle and corporate war-profiteers. Now, Trump is doing the same thing Bush did: doing things that make no sense to anyone with a thinking brain. Last week, after one of the president’s daily press conferences, which has become a study in narcissism and kiddy tirades, Trump sounded ecstatic that the TV viewers for his press conferences were higher than some other shows.

Look me over. If you like what you see, help me out; if not, you can vote for the other Biden. Give me a look, though.” Geez, Joe, I am looking at you, and I don’t like what I see. During a speech last month, Biden gave us his inside look at the U.S. Constitution: “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.” Joe, the “Thing” in that context is God. Okay, I’ll toss you another beer, but this is your last. On the home front, more people are covering their faces and noses when they go out in public. So far, and there are more now, the cities of Mission, Edinburg, and Elsa have passed ...
