This parade of slime is exposing Trump’s speed-dial contents. In a sane society individual investigations would ensue, probably alphabetically.

Donald Trump is an imperfect man doing God's work, unlike Joe Biden, an incredible family man and genuinely practicing Christian, who embodies all that is evil in the world.

Yo Donald, getcher character witnesses right here.. We’ll send ‘em right over, after they get out of the Menendez trial. It’s a 2 minute walk.

Religion is a tool they use when it suits them, but it's left in the toolbox when it doesn't.
It's all a matter of convenience and public show.

religion is the last refuge of the scoundrels who can no longer invoke the patriotism that they so obviously have forsaken in the pursuit of power. if ever these heretics achieve total control, they will go after god just as they they have everything that is good and decent in this nation.

America elected - and then re-elected - a brown skin Democrat with a funny name. Tens of millions of people "lost their minds" and now want to pretend they are the victims of a stolen America. And they want their blood. Nothing any person with an (R) next to their name does matters anymore to them. See: George Santos, Ken Paxton. Tens of millions of right wingers are simply insane.

One minor quibble, though. I don't think "insane" is the right word. I think it goes back to what you said about a "stolen America." They want to return America to a vision of it now embraced by a horrendously corrupt racist fat slob because it's their comfort zone. It's really all about power.

Wed May 15, 2024, 11:55 AM

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” (Matthew 23:13, 27-28)

And he never entered the courtroom. Sorta like he had to give in to tsf's demands, and didn't really want to be underneath, I mean, near him.
