    1. Russia didn't interfere in the election
    2. Ok they did, but no one on the Trump team met them
    3. Ok they did, but it was just about adoptions (the Magnitsky Act)
    4. Ok it wasn't, it was about Hillary dirt, but it's not illegal
    5. Ok maybe it is, but collusion isn't a crime
    6. Ok it is, but HILLARY, COMEY, BING BING BONG MAGA !
    1. I didn't have an affair with any pornstar
    2. Ok I did, but no one on my side paid them
    3. Ok they did, but it was just a settlement and I still didn't have affairs
    4. Ok it wasn't, but I didn't know about the payments, ask my lawyer Cohen.
    5. Ok maybe I did, but the payment isn't an illegal campaign contribution
    1. We never spoke to anyone about Trump Tower Moscow.
    2. Ok we did, but it wasn't during my run for the Presidency
    3. Ok it was, but it was just an enquiry, no formal agreement existed
    4. Ok it did, but it was never signed and I didn't know about it.
    5. Ok I did, and I signed it myself, but it isn't illegal.
    6. Ok it is, but THE BORDER WALL, ECONOMY IS UP, MAGA!
    You get the idea. Now repeat above for Trump's statements about the shutdown. 1st prize for whoever posts a solution here is pure cred. Good luck (or not as it's too easy for all Trump ad nauseam lies).
    The REAL BUMMER was when the news showed the actual Trump Tower Moscow agreement that was actually SIGNED by Trump himself. When I saw the contract with his signature on the TV I literally slapped my forehead so hard my eyeballs hit the wall behind me (I'm typing blind now).

    Seriously think your president is mentally ill. Or something similar. Kind of scary actually.

    Is Trump's explanation of Afghanistan an episode of Drunk History?

    Well he did say he was going to run the gov like one of his businesses so I'm not surprised it's shutdown.

    I love how Drumpf is amazed that he had never experienced sitting down with a large group of generals before becoming president... and that they have a large number of computers... and seriously, how does anyone stand behind him with a straight face?

    All this building a wall nonsense is a smokescreen to entertain the masses and to shift the national focus away from Trump crimes...

    It's getting harder and harder to defend this guy, yet still there are people who claim any negative press on Trump is fake.. HOW IS THE MEDIA LYING WHEN THEY SHOW A FULL CLIP OF HIM SAYING WHAT THEY CLAIM HE SAID.

    Two points:
    1. Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks on 9/11 were national emergencies. There is no crisis on the southern border, so there is no national emergency. This would be abuse of power.
    2. Trump airlines? Shut down.
    Trump casinos? Shut down.
    Trump steaks? Shut down.
    Trump university? Shut down.
    Trump magazine? Shut down.

    Trump kept his promise to run the government like he ran his companies: shut down, with unpaid workers & blaming everyone but himself.

    Man! Trump is true entertainment. It’s shocking how he doesn’t drink or do drugs and still can’t stick to real topic :D
