  1. @ Wonderer… Please… the treasonous Dementia Patient thinks “facts” is that funny little printer thing that notifies him when Hunter deposits payments from China into his account.

  2. You know you’re on to something when the local Progressively-Marxist plebes are directed to jump on the site and attack the messenger for exposing their devious plans. LMAO at these mania levels clowns.

    Keep up the good work, Steve and TR.

  4. Trump loves tik tok! He came out *against* the bill banning it. Not really surprising, the guy is always for sale and the Chinese have big pockets.
