The GOP is in free-fall. Republicans won’t seat another President for 30 more years at the earliest. You have normal people in your party. Run them for president instead of these boy-Palins and snake handling traveling preachers.

Barnum, he also does an excellent job of mimicking Huey P. Long of Louisiana and George Wallace of Alabama in his ability to draw the enthusiasm of crowds attending his rallys.

Barnum had served two terms in the Connecticut Legislature, and advocated for voting rights and citizenship for freed slaves. Trump doesn’t even know what the 13th Amendment is.

Trump has no legislative or elected experience at all. Trump is a hoax.

Going after – Free-trade/VAT, WALL/Illegals, NATO/Defense, FED/Tax-Havens – should send shivers down the spines of the establishment folks.

Trump is no humbug – he means business in bringing terror to these crooks.

The only thing Trump will be President of, is the shady acres retirement community in Gainesville, FL in two years.
