    How many officials of Trump’s Administration does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    Nine:
    One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed.
    One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs
    to be changed.
    Trump to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb.
    Trump to tell the nations of the world that they are either “for”
    changing the light bulb or “for” darkness.
    One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract for the
    new light bulb.
    One to deny there was ever a light bulb.
    One to arrange a photograph of Trump, dressed as a janitor, standing
    on a step ladder under the banner: “Light Bulb Change Accomplished”.
    One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting
    in detail how Trump was literally in the dark.
    Trump to viciously smear the others.
    That Russian guy.
    One to say:”But what about those missing light bulbs?”?
    Trump to campaign at rallies on how he had
    a strong light-bulb-changing policy all along.
    One that’s going to steal the light bulb.
    Trump to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing
    a light bulb and screwing the country.

  2. “TRUMPSTER” is the only one that’s never heard of JUNTEENTH…because he’s never in his lifetime opened up a History Book!!! Lol…😂…or A Reading Book for that matter!!!

  3. “Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man’s nature — opposition to it is in his love of justice.
    —Abraham Lincoln, October 16, 1854 Speech in Peoria

    “I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.”
    –Abraham Lincoln, April 4, 1864

    “This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.”
    –Abraham Lincoln, April 6, 1859

      David, I could not conclude Trump committed a crime! – Robert Mueller!

    • “I should not know what to do as to the existing institution. My first impulse would be to free all the slaves, and send them to Liberia, to their own native land.”
      ~ Abraham Lincoln, October 16, 1854 Speech in Peoria

      @Bud Fudlacker

      What does quotes about ending slavery have to do with Muller? Do you think Muller supports slavery like our confederate president?

      Thank you David! That last quote is my favorite quote of 2020 cause it still applies to this very day!

      @Shango Sankofa I could not conclude Trump committed a crime! – Robert Mueller! I like that quote!

  4. *The enemy of Trump is his mouth,*
    It’s very strong to him.
    *his mouth will destroy him*
    The MOUTH of Trump always *#HUMILIATE** HIMSELF.*
    i don’t need to add it.
    *Even if he do or not, he lost it!*
    *#FROM** **#HIS** **#MOUTH**!!!*

      TAKE DOWN THE RACIST DEMOCRAT PARTY AS THAT TOO REMINDS MILLIONS OF US, DURING THE TIMES WHEN THEY HAD SLAVES, LYNCHING AND THE KKK.

      @OBAMAGATE OBAMAGATE Its always hilarious the right-wing racist cry. They were racist 200 years ago, so we can be now, just make sure you bring up pre civil war.

      Corn Pop hairy legs and kids rubbing his legs and jumping on his lap? Dementia Joe?

      @Dave Ponsford what about the Democrats that just dropped a Confederate soldier statue on a black man’s head, putting him in a coma? No one has been charged! It happened in Portsmouth Virginia you can look it up!

    • Ignorant person didn’t know that his words can humiliate himself,
      Because he can’t be a courage to see his faults.
      So his enemies is himself,
      even if you blame others.

  5. Brian’s dry humor is so precious. Love it.

    We defeated colonialism, we defeated slavery yet both of those things are still prevalent in our day to day lives. Could it be the stubbornness of white patriarchy? Just asking.

  8. The Man is an embarrassment.

    • I think after having a black president who didn’t have the “stain” of slavery and was a scandal free administration give or take a few foul ups for sure. Then electing this man, I think as black people we finally figured out how much had the country hates us. And how the other half tolerates is in a country we built but have no power in.

      @John Brown Obama bombed Libya creating a booming African slave trade, due to leaving them without a government, the slaves are being traded to this day! Are you cool with that?

    • @John Brown yes now we need to Use our Votes and turn that around.

  9. Trump is also proud of making the victims of his sexual misconduct, whom nobody had ever heard of until he groped them, famous.
