on the clip of trump saying he is providing monetary help to jan 6 rioters isn’t the worst part of that clip which is bad enough but trump said he had met with these jan 6 people. i will assume it was at maralago in his office that he calls the 45 because he is nuts BUT everyone knows trump's mo, he’s a bragger. there is no doubt in my mind that while the jan 6 rioters were in trump’s maralago #45 office criminal dumbarss showed them top secret docs...u know that he did. look at this. look at what i have. he definitely did that. he must be dealt with as the rosenberg’s were because his security/espionage leakage is way worse and farther reaching. criminal trump must be dealt with.

ANOTHER failed "journalist"

The demise of CNN is near complete with Tapper insane suggestion our President invite Trump to the Queen's funeral. Going for the sound bite for clicks/trends is the lowest of schitcks. You had a good run, time to spend your remaining career at Faux where you belong
