i don't care if the president is Republican or Democrat this is inappropriate and individuals who work in government who "joke" about these things need to be removed from office.

Regardless of your side of the political spectrum you sit or wha in office- that isn’t only out of taste that’s tantamount to inciting an attack. This is getting out of hand, a place where racism and genocide were openly called for wasn’t something I’d have ever thought would happen in a million years, let alone in the United States- the envy of the vast majority of the world. Kill all white males? Kill Trump? What have we become. This open season on a specific race needs to stop and now.

This is bad. If people keep joking about assassination, someone is eventually going to try something stupid.

Dear soon-to-be-ex state senator Sandoval, here are some suggested titles for the book you may soon consider writing: - Hot to get Unelected in 1 Easy Step - Things to Not do on the Campaign Trail (or ever actually) - I Be Dumb

The behaviour of Democrats since their 2016 loss to the Republican Party has been truly staggering. The mobilisation of media and political allies around the globe has been hugely illuminating though and has done much to expose the true corrupt nature of their network. Truth has been largely abandoned by the legacy media, internet platforms have engaged in political censorship and manipulation and a climate of violence encouraged. Nothing could have played out better for the Presidents 2020 re election they have truly portrayed themselves as incompetent buffoons. I would despair if I were a Dem moderate.
