    As a European following the US elections, I'm still flabbergasted as to how, in a country founded on ideas of liberty and progress, the terms 'liberal' and 'progressive' are dirty words to such a large number of the population. ... especially since the logical opposite to these is to be illiberal and backwards and who would consciously WANT that?!

Joe Biden 47 years in the Corrupt Swamp Pay to Play Reveled, You are seeing the rabid-leftist takeover of the Democrat party and their absolute Embrace of Cancel Culture, the rabid leftist BLM/Antifa militia burning down Cities, Murdering and Intimidating people in the street, Looting and burning businesses, Threating anyone daring to Dissent from their Marxist narratives.

    If it wasn't for the DNC leadership and their hatred of progressives Bernie Sanders would have won. But since joe biden was losing Amy And Pete pooled their delegates to Biden. And that's how he won. They never want a real progressive because they know progressives would end their corruption. Even Obama got in on that action. Biden is not even considering Warren for any of his cabinet seats only Bush era republicans. 🙄

    Trump just reversed 134yr old edict to fire any or all of our high medical advisors and hospitals because they dont agree with him. Trump lies non stop. Trump will kill everyone. He does not believe science. Trump refuses to turn in his taxes. He has 3 sets one he inflates value for bank loans, one so he deflates value and pays no taxes. And a real set he keeps. Trump has committed so much tax fraud he shoutd be locked up for that alone 25yrs per count not served consecutively. Trump and McConnell stole $3.4Trillion from Social Security and $698Billion from Medicare and Medicaid. Trump has gone to court 15 times to remove everyone with previous conditions from any healthcare. 15 times to court to eliminates Obamacareand replace it with nothing. He is trying to eliminate Medicare and Medicaid plus Social Security completly. Trump was informed November 2019 Covid was coming and did nothing for America. He did sell thousands of ventalators to Russia and China. But refused to help America Kushner sold many to his friends stating all the ventalators the White House had were theres to do as they wished. WRONG WE YHE PEOPLE PAID FOR THEM. Then Trump tells each state go and buy your own. All while millions become I'll and 223,000 die. Millions left withing term effects. As Trump has only taken our money used it as his personal piggyback. Golf alone has cost America $330Billion including secret service. Trump has a clothing business in China that is run like a sweat shop. He never brought it back to America Says well they are used to this and they have a job. Ones a secret bank account in China deposits $17million withdraws $15million next day. That is money laundering. Trump has told 380,000 lies since in office. This does not include all his retweets and campaign rally lies restated over and over again. Trump has been impeached. He is a traitor to America and so is Barr. Trump supports boogaloo boys, white supremacy, Nazi, is a proven and self proclaimed peta file, preditor, bigamist, bully, bigot, sexist. Racist. Trump has locked up thousands of children ripped them out of parents arms and still has 538 children they can not find parents. They begged to stay stated they will be killed if they go back. Now they cannot locate them. All while he brings his in laws over to America buys there Citizenship. Keeps all his illegal alien workers stating they are very good workers. Taken part in human trafficking. Supposed to not profit from his time in office and broken that law countless of times. Pardens all his criminal buddies so they can do it all again, and again. Was proven he has allowed Russian collusion. Allowed Russia to hire hit men on our military. He has removed all big company standards for clean air, water, land and is allowing dumping again. Plus removed all endangered species from any form of protection. Then issued 45 hunting licenses for his work associates and 2 sons. Yes, this is the man who self proclaimed Second coming. Did not say of what but has proven to be as bad as Hitler or Stalin truly equal to the devil himself. This is who you call your good man????

      I think he actually did show it, the first few times he tried the show without an audience -- one night in the theater, then a few nights at different places in his home. But then he pulled together the nice bookcase corner and the open-throat shirt and adjusted to only a couple of people being there, and he's been seeming not to miss the audience since. But I think you're right; he still does miss it.
