  1. How many times have we heard Barletta’s line, “The only poll that counts is the one on election day.” The whiff of desperation.

  2. My concern with Trump is a “Mini Trump” like Scott Wagner who has taken it upon himself to issue an edict that he will not release his tax returns. Good government is not an option in a free society and full disclosure is essential for good government. Trump seemingly has inspired in a “Mini Trump” like Scott Wagner the decision to not fully disclose by not releasing his tax forms. Democracy weeps.

  3. Trump sucks. His collusion with Russia is criminal conspiracy and traitorous to USA.

    1. You must be joking or drinking the bourbon the EU hit with Tariffs.
      When it comes to treason and incompetence—Obama wins. Nixon tried to corrupt IRS- Obama did it. I might not like Trump but he didn’t collude with anyone-but Obama gave the butchers of Tehran a billion plus – ran away from Assad and polarized our Nation as much as Trump. Don’t listen to Jim Acosta – and turn off MSNBC.
      The trumpies leave a lot to be desired – but the left wing extremists are the real threat to this Nation!
