    I ... wouldn't have ... I feel bad saying so but I'm kind of surprised you say that you would.

    Pore, pore Donald, he just can't seem to catch a brake!!

    I always mangle the English language and misspell when I come here to hit and post.......I am usually appalled when I look back at times to see how mangled my posts are. If I were Donald or POTUS, I would hire a full time editor, but I don't believe Donald cares much about appearing smart, for as much as he likes to bash elitists out of one side of his mouth and brag about how elite (well educated) he is out of the other side of his mouth. He speaks to a base that does not seem to care much about facts, figures, lies, contradictions, double standards, hypocrisy and being intelligent, to any degree.

    There is a term or phrase that has meaning with regard to what it refers to and it seems apropos to our current POTUS, unfortunately, for America.



    The phrase "speaks with a forked tongue" means to say one thing and mean another or, to be hypocritical, or act in a duplicitous manner. In the longstanding tradition of many Native American tribes, "speaking with a forked tongue" has meant lying, and a person was no longer considered worthy of trust, once he had been shown to "speak with a forked tongue". This phrase was also adopted by Americans around the time of the Revolution, and may be found in abundant references from the early 19th century — often reporting on American officers who sought to convince the tribal leaders with whom they negotiated that they "spoke with a straight and not with a forked tongue" (as for example, President Andrew Jackson told the Creek Nation in 1829[16]) According to one 1859 account, the native proverb that the "white man spoke with a forked tongue" originated as a result of the French tactic of the 1690s, in their war with the Iroquois, of inviting their enemies to attend a Peace Conference, only to be slaughtered or captured.[17]

    Yes, yes, we have been told lies and untruths by many people and other POTUS's, but none have done it to the level our current POTUS has and done so without rebuke, by the very people that elected him, even as they too, constantly speak of the lies of all others, BUT the POTUS's.
    Thanks from BigLeRoy

    Even worse is the fact Trump is getting worse each day as he lies about his successes and does not mention his failures,except to continue to lie about them.

    On the bright side, there's only 2 1/2 years to go.

    Or 6 1/2.

    Enjoy!

    Regarding the photo, I think we can finally see why Melania married Donald.
