  1. NBC should be renamed Democrat Fake News for Gullible Idiots. BTW, lad, its spelled Antoine. You would know that, had you actually finished high school.

  2. I'm too distracted by the badly made tie over a tight collar polo-shirt. The script of this performance was confusing.

  3. Too many candidates split the Party before General Election vote. ALL single digit candidates should quit not. Biden, Sanders &/or Warren should drop out after Early STATE losses. Or Clinton/Obama 2020.

  4. Donald Trump, $22 trillion debt is no Laughing matter
    Are 2018 tax cuts permanent?
    On December 22, 2017, President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. … The Act cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% beginning in 2018. The corporate cuts are permanent, while the individual changes expire at the end of 2025.
    How Debt Could Blow Up the Trump Economy
    The nation’s total debt has topped $22 trillion for the first time in U.S. history.

  5. #TULSI2020 THE candidate NBC will not talk about. They keep pushing creepy joe. She is the only one who can take on Trump, she's a vet, he's a draft dodger. She's the only one willing to talk about and take on the MIC. Not cop Kamela, who locks up pot smokers. #Tulsi2020 will END Prohibition.
