  • June 23: “…..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!”
  • June 23: “Washed up Creepster John Bolton is a lowlife who should be in jail, money seized, for disseminating, for profit, highly Classified information. Remember what they did to the young submarine sailor, but did nothing to Crooked Hillary. I ended up pardoning him – It wasn’t fair!”

  • June 22: “Looks what’s going on here. Where are the protesters? Was this man arrested?”  Retweet:  Matt Walsh @MattWalshBlog · Jun 22 · This guy brutally assaulted a Macy’s employee because of his race and then slandered him by claiming he said the n-word, which was a lie. This is a horrific hate crime and if the races were reversed it would be the only thing we talk about for days. [Video]
  • June 22: “So terrible!”  Retweet:  Jeff Segor @JSegor · 20h · The invention of the cell phone now records gratuitous violence everywhere. Where are the protests for this?

  • June 22: “Could somebody please explain to reporter Doug Mckelway of @FoxNews that the Border Wall has long been under construction, the battle (war) is won, the Dems have FINALLY given in. In fact, I will be in Arizona tomorrow to celebrate the 212th plus mile of @BretBaier
