Why does Joe Briben' hate Americans but loves terrorists to the extent that dozens of known ones have been let into the country via the collapsed southern border?

The demoncrap fascist regime will do anything to stop the one man in power who was never on the Epstein list. And that tells you all you need to know.

Boo hoo, leftist filth, Marxist trash, demoncrap bums - your Georgia case, the jewel in the Anti-Trump porn fantasy, is blown to smithereens. Like I always say, the left will eat itself.

Joe Biden is a miserable failure.

Fani Willis gave her lover (a married man and mediocre lawyer at best) the lead prosecutorial job on the fake Georgia Trump case. She also gave him $600,000 in taxpayer money where he promptly spent it on vacations for the both of them to continue their adulterous affair. It's the very definition of prosecutorial misconduct. She's now being dragged into his divorce proceedings to testify on his financial disclosure. Now do you see what scum these demoncrap bums are? Crack, illegitimate children, illegal guns, prostitutes, infidelity, twink schtupping in a senate hearing room and now this...it's positively stomach turning.
