DONALD TRUMP AND THE RUSSIAN CONSPIRACY

Donald Trump was the perfect target for Vladimir Putin and Russia. He was a selfish and greedy man of little character, and he was desperate. He was also an egomaniac and a horrible businessman who had squandered his inheritance, gone into bankruptcy, and no American bank would touch him. 

RUSSIA PULLS TRUMP OUT OF BANKRUPTCY AND HELP TO MAKE HIM PRESIDENT, AND IN RETURN HE FOCUSES ANIMOSITY TOWARDS CHINA TO DISTRACT ATTENTION AWAY FROM RUSSIAN AGGRESSION.

IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.


IT'S UNBELIEVABLE HOW MANY AMERICANS ARE WILLING TO SHUT THEIR EYES AND SELLOUT AMERICA FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH REASONS - INCLUDING THE CHURCH.  HAS EVEN PATRIOTISM AND RELIGION BECOME A FRAUD?

ALL RELIGIONS ARE A LIE - AND SO IS ATHEISM

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY

ALL RELIGIONS ARE A LIE - AND SO IS ATHEISM

I want to start by saying that I’m a devoted man of God, and I’m also one of the most spiritual people you’ll ever meet. But like many others, I too have had to struggle with my beliefs, because like most of us, I was also taught to believe in Mother Goose and the Bogeyman as a child. But as I grew into an adult and began to embrace independent thought, it became clear to me that the only way to know God’s will is by observing what he has done, not through the words of man - and what God has done, is blessed us all with the capacity for common sense. 

That’s why I have the courage to tell you what I’m about to say, which is, anyone who has allowed themselves to be convinced of walking dead men and talking snakes have, by definition, obviously ignored God’s blessing and have embraced the word of of man. But I’m going to speak-out nevertheless, for the benefit of those who may be on the borderline. 

Based on the Bible, God doesn’t even acknowledge anyone unless they’re a White male. Open up your Bible and try to find a St. Willie, St. Linda, or St. Chong, or go into just about any church in America and look at their portrayal of Jesus. If Jesus was the White man who’s generally portrayed, and he had been born in the desert, they wouldn’t have had to crucify him, he would have died of heat stroke. So if man will even lie to you about what Jesus looked like, how can you believe a thing they tell you about what he said?

But that’s religion for you. It’s merely a form of socialized brainwashing. Every culture does it in order to try to make themselves seem special in the eyes of God. There are over 4200 religions on Earth, and God doesn’t have anything to do with any of them. If he did, there would only be one. So regardless of what your preacher tells you, the underlying message that Christianity is sending to your children is that
Black people are ungodly, and that message is constantly being reinforced when they speak of “forces of darkness”, and “Black magic”.

As a direct result of  Black people buying into this Christian dogma, while we claim to love our brothers and sisters, we’ll kill each other without giving it a second thought, and we feel no shame at all in calling the very womb of our culture “bitches” and “hoes.” That’s directly due to our religious indoctrination. We think of ourselves as evil, and we’ve been trained that it’s perfectly alright to treat each other as such. That’s why instead of using the church and its resources to educate and organize the Black community, your preacher uses it to rob you of the money you should be using in the best interest of your family.

God speaks to us through common sense, not through scriptures. “The Scriptures” are the superstitious rantings of 3000-year-old dead men who believed in talkin’ snakes. But you just can’t get that across to some people, because they’re so afraid of the Bogeyman dragging them to off to “Hell” that they continue to blindly dance to the White man’s music and completely ignore his shackles. So, believe me. Slavery still exists, but now, it exists in our minds instead of on Georgia cotton fields – do you hear me Gladys? That’s why Gladys Knight fell all over herself for the opportunity to sing the National Anthem in homage to White supremacy even as they were condemning Colin Kaepernick for taking a knee in protest against the brutal murder of Black people, because Black people have been indoctrinated to subconsciously believe that White supremacy is Godly. That’s what religion is for. “How dare Colin Kaepernick refuse to stand for the National Anthem just because our glorious officers of the Lord killed a few Godless coons on the street!!!? It’s an act of God! – OH SAY CAN’T YOU SEE!!!?”

So the fact is, religion is a political game, but just because it’s a fraud, that doesn’t mean that God is also a fraud. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. But atheists tend to take the position that the concept of God is just as fraudulent as man’s religion, but that position is based on a lack of insight. They're basing their opinion regarding the existence of God on a preconceived idea of what criteria God has to meet in order to exist.
.
So the bottom line is, atheist can't find God because their thinking is so limited that they don’t know where to look. They’re looking for a humanoid-like entity that must adhere to what they perceive of as reality, but who says God has to look like them or share their nature and limitations? Atheists completely fail to consider the fact that existence itself is a form of existence. So instead of falling all over one another trying to come up with condescending little witticisms like “The great Houdini in the sky”, they should take the time to expand their minds. God is not required to adhere to their limited level of comprehension for the right to exist.

So to answer the question that theists, agnostics, and atheists endlessly debate, "Does God exist?", yes, there is a God. God is existence itself, or to put it quite simply, God is what "is" is.

So again, yes, I believe in God, and no, I don’t hate all White people. But God gave me the common sense to know that the White man and God are two entirely different things. God blessed me with enough common sense to know that the very same people who taught slaves about God, and are thumpin’ the Bible the loudest are also cheering the loudest for Donald Trump. Look it up, it’s a matter of record. But these people don’t believe in God, they believe in White supremacy. They’ve been taught – just like you – that all non-White people are ungodly. But at least they know it.

So wake up, Black people! Get up off your knees and educate yourself!!! God created you with the ability to answer your own prayers. But you're treating him like some kind of sugar daddy, somebody that's convenient to have around when you want something. Stop begging and talking about God so much. You ain't fooling nobody, and you're certainly not fooling God. So we'd all be a lot better off if you'd just keep your mouth shut and live a Godly life, and then leave it at that. Because all your Bible-thumping is sickening. It only amounts to trying to lie to God. God knows he gave you the common sense to know that dead men don't get up and just walk away - not even Jesus.

NEVER FORGET TO SPOIL YOUR KIDS

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY

NEVER FORGET TO SPOIL YOUR KIDS


One of the greatest joys in life is spoiling our kids. Many people consider that a bad thing, but it’s just the opposite as long as it's done properly. Spoiling our children provides them with a sense of self-esteem that will assist them throughout their journey in life. As parents, we are the ones who define our children, and we’re the ones who tell them who they are, and how important they are as individuals. If we fail do that as parents, they’ll be seeking that validation from strangers throughout their entire lives.
.
When we let our children know how much they're loved it gives them a sense of self-esteem and a knowledge of their importance that will stay with them throughout their lives. It also helps you to bond as parent and child. As a result, you’ll always be a better friend to your children than the people on the street who can become a negative influence in their lives.

KAI, MOKE, AND TAY

But while lavishing your children with the knowledge of how special they are, it’s also important to teach them to have a sense of responsibility, and to respect the importance of others, because as we’re learning in the current political environment, the level of respect, or lack thereof, in which we treat others, is merely a reflection of how we view ourselves. So regardless to how much of a fa├žade we put on, if we’re disrespectful of others, it demonstrates that we lack respect for ourselves.
.
And finally, we must teach our children to be independent thinkers, to have confidence in their own ability to think, and to develop a love and a yearning for the pursuit of knowledge. If you do those things, you'll raise your children to be steppers that you'll can be proud of, and you’ll also be doing your part to contribute to the excellence of the Black community.
MILES AND TAYLOR

So spoiling our children is one of the most important things we do as a parent, and it's also, one of the great joys in life. At this point in my life, I think about my “babies” all the time, and I’d do anything to be able to relive the experience of raising them all over again. So don’t make parenting a hobby. Get into it and enjoy it while you can, because before you know it, they’ll be your peer.

DADDY’S BABY BOY
ERIC L. WATTREE, JR


"DADDY, MOMMIE SAID YOU BEAT UP THE BOGEYMAN.

DID YOU REALLY BEAT HIM UP?"
.

"YEAH, TWICE. THAT'S WHY HE'S SCARED TO COME

IN OUR HOUSE."

HOWLING WINDS
.

As I watched my son, dapper as they come, walk down our walkway and into manhood,

what I remember most was the howling winds. I'd seen such winds before, but never like this - my old foe was pulling up trees by the roots,

.

So I watched, but I watched alone.

.

As the winds raged on and the mighty palms bowed, a single leaf from our Winter-bare ficus tree

held tough against the ferocious storm. It fought valiantly against the angry gale, as though hanging tough Just to witness the changing of the guard,

.

So I stood, but I stood alone.

.

Like that solitary leaf, all my life I've fought the ferocious winds, and now they’ve returned, this mighty foe, poised to seize the hopes and dreams of my only son,

.

So I cringed, but I cringed alone.

.

Then, posterity glanced back, squared its shoulders, and beat back hopelessness as it

trudged through fields of ivy. Then it spread its wings and rode those howling winds

over yonder mountaintop,

.

So I wept, but I wept with a crowd . . .


AZUSA, Calif. – In a tense, high stakes, pressure situation, where only two options exist and just one that is favorable, there is no man better the moment and no one better to protect your interests than Eric  Wattree.  And that's not just in sports but in real life too.

Wattree, the burly 6-foot-6 former college basketball standout, is cool, calm, and collected.  He always has been and probably always will be.  It's just the way he is.

Thus, when he takes the stage Oct. 26 for induction into Azusa Pacific's Athletics Hall of Fame, the former DEA agent and Air Force officer will do so with little fanfare or personal reaction.  It's the Wattree way … cool at all times.

Bill Odell, an APU Hall of Famer himself after a 16-year coaching career for the Cougars, knows firsthand how composed Wattree can be.  He handed Wattree nearly every must-come-through situation during Eric's 57-game at Azusa Pacific, and Wattree delivered repeatedly.

"Eric was one of the most respected players I ever coached," said Odell who served as a head coach for 36 years on the college and high school levels.  "He was a humble, quiet leader who led with his work ethic and personal demand for excellence."

A former standout at nearby Northview High School in Covina, Calif., Wattree played for former Odell pupil Ron Rice before transferring to Fremont High in Los Angeles.  He opened his college career at the University of Wyoming, playing two years for the Cowboys before Rice alerted Odell that Eric was returning home to Southern California.  In the summer of 1994, he transferred to Azusa Pacific. Wattree's demand for excellence led him to averaging 13.9 points and 8.6 rebounds during his two seasons at Azusa Pacific, leading the Cougars to back-to-back Golden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) championships and a pair of NAIA Tournament appearances.  As a 1996 senior, he averaged 15.4 points and 7.7 rebounds while shooting at an impressive .634 (201-for-317) clip from the floor.  Justifiably, he was named the GSAC Player of the Year.

The Cougars entered the final week of Wattree's 1996 senior season with just a one-game lead in the GSAC race over rival Westmont College.  Wins were a must for Azusa Pacific, and adding to the tension of the situation was the fact that the Cougars opened that final week with a visit to Westmont in Santa Barbara.  The Warriors needed the win to pull even with APU with one game left.  The Cougars, on the other hand, needed the victory to put away the pesky Warriors and collect yet another conference title. 

In a raucous Murchison Gym, with the score tied at 64-64 and less than 30 seconds to play and the ball in the hands of the Cougars, Odell called a timeout, and designed a play to go to Tim Sebek for the final shot.  However, the Warriors smothered Sebek, and his attempt at a game-winning shot was off the mark, wide right.  Wattree saw the trajectory of the shot and realizing it was not going in, charged the hoop, jumped up, gathered the air ball, and laid it back in for the game winner with just 2 seconds to play.

"A Westmont player turned to me and said 'you think the game is over?' Wattree recalled, "and I answered, 'it's definitely over!'"

Protecting teammates in 1996 was just the beginning of a career of security.  Following graduation from Azusa Pacific in May of that year, Wattree entered the Air Force where he served for ten years, most notably as a certified Phoenix Raven Anti-Terrorism Specialist.  He was tasked with ensuring the safety of government officials and high-ranking military personnel while providing support on highly classified special operation missions in Afghanistan and other places throughout the world.

While still with the Air Force, he joined the Drug Enforcement Administration out of the Seattle area, working on complex conspiracy and international investigations.  He stayed with the DEA for 15 years until last year, when he accepted a new position as senior investigator and security specialist with the Arizona Department of Economic Security.

"I am so proud of Eric and how he has served our country with honor and protected some of our most important people." Said Odell.  "He has been in some extremely dangerous situations, and just as he had proven to us on the basketball court, he was trustworthy in all situations.  Simply put, he is unflappable."

Wattree's Cougar career will be enshrined forever at Azusa Pacific when he joins nine other former Cougar athletes for induction into the Azusa Pacific Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 10 a.m. in the Felix Event Center

MEMORANDUM FOR OFFICER TRAINING SCHOOL SELECTION COMMITTEE


FROM: 92 SFS/SFO
2 E. ARNOLD STREET
FAIRCHILD AFB, WA 99011

SUBJECT: Recommendation for Staff Sergeant Eric L. Wattree


1. I wholeheartedly concur with Staff Sergeant Wattree’s request to attend Officer Training School. He represents the enlisted ranks with the highest standard and will bring that dedication and professionalism to the officer corps.


2. Eric continues to lead a stellar military career; his enlisted performance reports speak for themselves. His leadership and experience, especially in contingency environments, remains a vital asset to our unit and wing. As one of my primary Phoenix Raven team leaders, he’s propelled to the forefront of all major deployments throughout the world. He’s repeatedly secured aircraft and crews, supporting a wide variety of missions, in the most austere and terrorist-ridden environments where security is severely inadequate. The diversity of these missions never limited SSgt Wattree’s capacity to adapt to each situation. For this reason, Eric was selected as our 2000 Outstanding Phoenix Raven Member of the Year and the 2001 Air Force Reserve Component Airman of the Year for the 92d Security Forces Squadron.

3. Whether operating under peacetime or contingency operations, Eric easily assumes control and tackles every situation with meticulous tenacity, a quality highly desired in our Air Force officers. Requested by name, Sergeant Wattree, provided security for presidential Banner missions throughout Greece, Peru and Viet Nam. While deployed to Afghanistan, he flew numerous combat missions in our nation’s pursuit to eradicate terrorism through Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. Additionally, he provided round-the-clock force protection for aircraft in other high-threat environments including Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Oman.

4. Sergeant Wattree motivated his personnel during the worst conditions and raised the level of esprit de corps to integrate personnel from other Air Force specialties into a cohesive team. His leadership, integrity and devotion to our Air Force play an integral part in our future leadership. Eric has what it takes to become a commissioned officer and earns my full support to attend Officer Training School.

.
I recently graduated from Oklahoma City University with a BBA - Economics (Minor in Marketing).

While at OCU I obtained many certifications, an example being the Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) Certification. I've also been a member of the Investment Club where we managed a portfolio of actual securities initially worth $100,000 - profits going towards OCU scholarships. Throughout my 4 years, my ability to establish and maintain relationships has been my biggest asset. Being able to think critically, analyze data and relay information effectively have been critical to my success.

I also had the pleasure of being a 4-year student-athlete, spending two years as Team Captain. As a captain, the importance of taking necessary sacrifices for overall team success as well as effective time management as it relates to workload efficiencies are vital. I served 4 years as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) in which we created a vehicle for student-athlete representation, organized community service efforts and promoted a positive student-athlete image on campus. I was selected on numerous occasions to speak publicly at various high schools, as well as at OCU's Sports Spectacular, the end-of-year sports banquet.

I love to learn, build relationships and WIN!

ATHEISTS LACK INSIGHT

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY

ATHEISTS LACK INSIGHT

Atheists take the position that God doesn’t exist because they lack insight. They're basing their opinion regarding the existence of God on a preconceived idea of what God has to be to exist. So the bottom line is, they can't find God because their thinking is so limited that they don’t know where to look. They’re looking for a humanoid-like entity, but who says God has to look like them or share their nature? Atheists completely fail to consider the fact that existence itself is a form of existence. So instead of falling all over one another trying to come up with condescending little witticisms like “The great Houdini in the sky”, they should take the time to expand their minds.

And no, I’m not a religious fanatic.  I'm a firm believer in God but I have absolutely no time for religion. God blessed us with common sense to guide our lives, and then man came along and created religion in order to claim that he speaks for God. But there are over 4200 different religions on Earth, and if God had anything to do with any of them, there’d only be one. 

Religions are designed to allow man to control other men. That’s why you’ll find that the most highly religious people in the world are also the most undereducated and gullible. If you can get a person to believe in walking dead men and talkin' snakes, you can get him to believe anything, including everything in Heaven is White. That’s why in spite of the many rumors that Black people also go to Heaven, you’ll never see one depicted (as clearly shown in the attached depiction). That alone speaks volumes. It clearly demonstrates that religions are a reflection of what their followers want to believe, as opposed to a message from God.

So to answer the question that theists agnostics, and atheists endlessly debate, "Does God exist?", yes, there is a God. God is existence itself, or to put it quite simply, God is what "is" is.

TO A FRIEND WHO TURNED OUT TO BE A TRUMP SUPPORTER

Beneath the Spin*Eric L. Wattree

EXCELLENCE IS THE KEY TO BLACK EQUALITY

TO A FRIEND WHO TURNED OUT TO BE A TRUMP SUPPORTER
 . 
I recently met a guy online by the name of Howard, and we rapidly became friends. I won’t give his last name as I’d planned because we had also planned to write this piece together, but it turned out that, that wasn’t meant to be. 
Howard and I are both widowers and we both loved and currently miss our late wives desperately, so it wasn’t a bit unusual that we immediately connected. I liked this guy upon first contact, and with the pain of our mutual loss in common, when we first spoke over the phone I felt like I was talking to a fellow traveler and someone I had known for years. 
It turned out that we were also both passionate in our political views as well - I, a passionate progressive, and he’s just as passionate in his support of Donald Trump. Once we recognized our unusual situation, we decided to not only try to navigate it, but to try to turn it to our advantage by using our unique connection to get a better understanding of what motivates the political opposition. We recognized that we had an excellent opportunity to address the differences in our political philosophies without having to deal with the attendant hostility. We even spoke of collaborating on this article together, so I sent him these first three paragraphs in an attempt to try set the tone. 
But it turned out that, that wasn’t as easy as it sounded. When I asked Howard to explain to me why he supported Donald Trump, he asked me to give him a couple of days to think about it, but he never got back with me with a response. So I decided to turn it around and I started writing him about some of the many things I found wrong with Trump, and asked him how he could possibly ignore them. I also sent him the video below, and evidence of alleged Trump and Russian collusion reported by a Trump administration whistleblower: 
TRUMP LIED AND AMERICANS DIED https://twitter.com/i/status/1303834571176378376 
FURTHER EVIDENCE OF TRUMP-RUSSIAN COLLUSION
On 9/11/20 the Washington Post reported that “Last week, the director of national intelligence, Trump loyalist John Ratcliffe, told Congress that he would suspend in-person briefings on foreign election interference. This week, Brian Murphy, who until recently was a senior intelligence official at DHS, came forward with a whistleblower’s complaint alleging that senior department officials told him to falsify intelligence to play down Russian attacks and play up the purported threat from China and Iran. Murphy quotes acting DHS secretary Chad Wolf telling him that those instructions came straight from the White House.” 
In response, Howard posted the following: 
.
“To all my friends here, I sit in a brown recliner and have my computer on my lap. It is quiet and I marvel at the sense of community I feel here. The sense of quiet confidence with a driving goal. To reelect the President. It is lovely. I have not belonged like this in a while.”
 . 
That told me two things – first, that Howard couldn’t tell me why he supported Trump, and second, that he had decided to ignore Trump's flaws - even his possible treason. 
Prior to getting to know Howard I would have simply written someone like him off as just an ignorant fascist. But now I’m left with a dilemma – I know that’s not the case. I wish it were, because then I would have been able to simply dismiss him and move on. But now I can’t dismiss him – at least, not without knowing that I was being remiss. Because I know for a fact that Howard is not the least bit ignorant, and I’m confident that he’s not a bigoted fascist. So how then do I explain his seeming blind loyalty to Donald Trump?
People like Howard, who are ordinarily intelligent and insightful people, yet, for some reason have a visceral attachment to a self-serving, bigoted, and corrupt politician like Donald Trump can’t simply be ignored, because they represent an insidious element within our body politic, and also a serious threat to our democracy. It’s not the people themselves that’s the problem, but the conditions that continue to create such people that represent a threat to our way of life. So to simply ignore what I’ve found to be the case here without examination would not only be reckless, but dangerously remiss, because it would be like ignoring a cancer that's quietly eating away at our society. 
I’ve come to the conclusion that while many of the people who support Trump are indeed simply bigots, there are many, like Howard, who may not be consciously racist at all, but they’ve simply become accustomed to the relative comfort of a racist America. In the past, as they struggled through their lives they had the comfort of knowing that regardless to how challenging life became, they would always be protected from being at the bottom of the barrel. But that’s no longer the case. Now that they’ve seen a Black man become one of our most honored Presidents, a Black woman running for Vice President, and hordes of non-White individuals moving to the very top of our society, they feel both insecure, and under an intense threat for their own survival. 
.
And I can understand how they feel. It was one thing to see a young Black man like myself coming up back in the day, because I wasn't a threat, but it's completely another to see brilliant young, highly educated Black people like my grandkids coming up, because they are indeed more than capable of leaving many White folks behind. They have the confidence, education, and creativity to do it. Because they realize what we call "soul" is nothing less than creative brilliance straining to be unleashed, and it can be applied to much more than just music.
That’s why “Make America Great Again” is such a popular slogan - because it recalls a time when America was great for White people and they were relatively secure. But the fact is, America has never been great in the sense that it’s been propagandized, and highly educated young Black people clearly recognize that fact, so now the chickens are coming home to roost. 
.
As I pointed out in a previous article, during the "Manifest Destiney" era (when Europeans came here and claimed that "God wants us to have this land"), and after being welcomed here by the Native Americans, they responded by presenting hosts with disease-infected blankets, and then brought in their army to eradicate them. So while we condemn the Nazis for killing 6 million Jews, American settlers killed as many as 10 generations of Native Americans in order to rob them of their land – and Trump is still robbing them of their natural resources as we speak. 
MAKE AMERICA GREAT
AGAIN

In addition, they moved on to either kill or make the lives of millions of African 
slaves miserable. Then after slavery, there was the Jim Crow era in which millions of African-Americans were discriminated against, brutalized, and in many cases murdered. And during that same time, the nation was also involved in WWII where Japanese-American citizens had their property seized and entire families were placed in concentration camps. In addition, the United States dropped not one, but TWO atomic bombs on the innocent men, women and children of Japan - and since they were noncombatants, that made it THE MOST horrendous act of terrorism in ALL of human history. 
But even then, “America the Beautiful” still wasn’t done - it went on to kill 3.1 million Vietnamese (2 million of which were innocent civilian men, women, and children), and then they did the very same thing to the people of Iraq (they were more compassionate with Iraqis, however - they only killed a million of them), and for no reason whatsoever, other than they didn’t like the cut of their jib. 
So American history is the most blatant lie ever told in the history of mankind. In America's short 244-years of existence America has undoubtedly been THE most brutally evil nation in human history. While some enlightened Americans - both Christian and non-Christian - are still willing to fight for what America COULD be, the Trumplodytes are waging Holy Hell against even that - and ironically, the so-called “Evangelical Christians” are screaming the loudest, which speaks volumes about who they really are. 
This is why Howard can’t tell me what he likes about Trump. While he craves the security that our brutal past provided White people, on a subconscious level he recognizes the price that was paid for White security in terms of injustice and immorality. That makes it impossible for Howard to explain what he likes about Trump without also embracing the truth about our past and what Trump actually represents, and right-wing Christians have the exact same problem. So instead of clearly stating what they really like about Trump, MAGA fans embrace their ambiguous slogan, “Make America Great Again”. That allows them to embrace White supremacy with a wink, but without actually having to claim it as their philosophy. But that’s exactly what America has always been, a hell-hole of White supremacy since its very inception.
.
But what Howard and his cohorts don't understand is, they're being bamboozled. As Trump's recklessly self-centered response to the Coronavirus clearly demonstrates, Trump and the GOP don't care any more about poor White folks than they do Blacks. Trump sees the poor, unwashed White masses as merely useful idiots to be used in his pursuit of self-aggrandizement, bigotry, and greed, and his all-inclusive bigotry also frowns upon poor White people of their motley breed.


So there you have it, Howard. Tell me where I’m wrong.

FORMER WHITE HOUSE AIDE SAYS TRUMP 
DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE,
HE ONLY CARES ABOUT BEING RE-ELECTED
