Obama is a traitor, anyone who helped him is too.

OBAMA LIVED TO REGRET DOING THAT BUT REAL AMERICANS ARE HAPPY HE DID IT GAVE POTUS TRUMP THE PUSH TO RUN...

Fidel Obama KNEW ... IG Report released July 16 2018. Obama KGB operative Lisa Page to Clinton operative Peter Strzok "POSTUS Trump not ever going to become president, right, Right?” the lawyer Lisa Page wrote to Strzok. “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded. We have Bruce and Nellie Orh peddling the Weissmen kosher nostra "insurance policy" via Rosenstien team and Obama briefed already! Are KGB Comey, mystified Mueller, incompetent Rod Rosenstein and wife Lisa Barsoomian, comrades Strozk and Paige guilty of Sedition or Treason?

The Weissmen Kosher Nostra COUP FAILED, the Rosenstien "insurance policy" FAILED, KGB Comey, mystified Mueller, comrades Lisa Barsoomian, Peter Strozk and Paige are guilty of Sedition! Next Clinton, Clapper and Brennan for FISA FRAUD.

24 year old polesmoker none of your jokes are funny...

It's funny that he thinks Trump was offended by that. Liberals think us normal people get offended by words that people say. You were more angry about the joke not working. Lmao.
