  • Being a psychotic tweeter involves never having to face reality.

    Maybe the mainstream media should wise up and stop republishing the psychotic tweets.

  • Did the president learn nothing from being a father? For example, "But he did it too!" doesn't work! Meanwhile, I am learning
    "the presidential diet" -- I read about him and lose my appetite.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Look at Dumb Donald and Eric and make your own conclusion. Maybe Ivanka raised herself.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Didn't Ivana raise the kids? Donald was usually out gallavanting and carrying on his serial fornications and oblivious to the responsibilities of fatherhood. I recall one report that while Junior was in college, Senior visitied and was so furious to find Junior in casual apparel that he actually rung his bell.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    gallivanting, that is.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    And yet, the only thing Junior has done is unconvincingly said "I met with this Russian and that Russian and that Russian, but nothing happened." Since Ivana is from Czechoslovakia, she isn't that dumb.

    Maybe she raised Ivanka. And someone else must have really raised Tiffany, as she has managed to stay out of this pigsty.
