Trump steamrolling over liberals to save America

The best comedy since “Hot Shots” is now playing nightly on every news broadcast, minus Fox News.

President Trump is putting out more decoys for the media to follow than are displayed in a Texas snow goose hunt.  Examples include: squabbles with Mexico and illegal voters.

President Trump is steamrolling over them all to save this country. Meanwhile, the liberal media and Hollywood spend days picking ant doo-doo out of pepper in the decoy spread. The media’s panic and screaming is reminiscent of reading Revelation, which is where we may be headed if the president can’t pull all of this off.

The media elite has really gone bonkers over this last executive order to properly vet possible terrorists coming into the U.S. from terrorist-breeding hotbeds. Countries like France and Germany are also condemning the action.

Here’s how brilliant that is: In France, one terrorist murdered 80 men, women and children and permanently crippled dozens more with a truck in 30 seconds. In Germany, the entire nation saw a spike in pepper spray demand as German women tried to defend themselves after a string of sexual assaults by refugees from the Middle East.

You think it’s possible these victims  and their families would have relished having Mr. Trump’s executive order in play?

Guess how many non-vetted refugees it will take to fly through a county fair or down a parade route — wiping out hundreds, possibly including your family, with a rented transfer truck?

This is exactly why President Trump was elected. Unfortunately, half of the American population has their heads up their sun-free zones.

Religiously following a shameless, dishonest news media, and entertainers such as Ashley Judd and Madonna, who possess the mental stability of a rat on the Titanic, is a path to certain destruction. Wake up, America!
