I will sum up the last 3 days of hearings from the Democrats: and I quote, "REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" "WWWAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHJHHHHHHH" end quote. In other words it's the same whining we've been hearing since November 8, 2016 in between sobs of "drumpf is finally going down" and "it was her turn/I'm still with her". pathetic.

Wow, all of these trump-bowing snow flakes are raging and it's hilarious. How does everyone believe that the man who's cheated on 3 wives, cheated students out for money, stolen from a charity for veterans, defrauded investors, and has chosen publically to believe Putin over our own national defense is the truthful patriot, while numerous bipartisan public servants are all being called liars and hoaxes? Liberals shouldn't stand with every liberal and conservatives shouldn't stand with every conservative.

Fuck this clown show and the insane and totally childish democratic party. Nothing but a colossal tantrum fit, like a child flopping to the ground screaming and flailing their arms and legs around. You lost! Get the fuck over it, man up and try to win the next one you fragile, whining and self entitled snow flakes! Listen to the ACTUAL hearing!

I am not sure how this propaganda made my push notifications, but i watched these events. Clearly if you say Quid Pro Quo enough it makes it true. Ukraine got nothing for the money...and gave us nothing...on money the US is not even required to give. I realize you hate Trump...But this just made this podcast look like bad.
