Riiiiiight.. They still do not get why Trump was elected.
Actually it is pretty funny.
I want a Jew elected as party chair!
Sending a message?
Trump got elected. That's where the country is at. Sorry, Charlie.
“They still do not get why Trump was elected.”
There’s no use trying to make stupid people learn. Liberals are like those stupid kids hammering a circle into those square pegs in kindergarten. They wont get it and never will.
Did you see any headline liket his when Republican were winning state seat and Governorships like crazy during the Obama years?
Ha ha the second whitest state besides mine (Maine) has a tolkien muzzie...freakin rascist hippies of ol’ Vahmont . Who cares.
The message I get out of it is the deomcRATS still have no idea why they lost all those seats.
Strong Message to Trump
We Surrender ,you should too ?
They elected Sanders too. Freakin barking fruitbats.

Yes we’re crazy. Muslims are out for blood - their history and deeds prove it.
Sweden on Lake Champlain.
I swear, those people in Vermont just get dumber by the day.
Wake up Vermont. You are on your way down the drain and this ignorant move should finish the job. Try to act like American’s.
Big mistake. They are not compatible with civilization. Get out.
