      Not even the 2 greatest actors in the world can make it believable. Trump is the greatest liar.

        Big Ben is what most people recognize about London. I’ve been many times, but even children recognize that.

                      @Cinda Bishop Your poor propaganda talk won't work here, go watch Faux news garbage. The only party of frauds is spineless GOP or should I say - real swamp and Trump cult. So stop lying, if you support Trump and don't support his removal, you don't support any of the policies you mentioned. Trump is hateful bigot, literally supporting crazy religious radicals, who hate LGBT community, he doesn't believe in protecting environment, he threw away every deal which protected our nature, Paris deal is prime example. He supports coal industry, which is killing all of us, our planet and children, and coal workers too, and he lies to coal workers, that he can bring back coal - no he can't and for 3 years he didn't. He is lying douche, spreading and supporting conspiracy theories, criminals in GOP, he is criminal himself, who broke the law and the Constitution of this country and real patriots are loyal to the Constitution, not traitor president. Trump welcomed help of Russia during election, it was written all over Mueller report, I read it, you and cowards from GOP didn't, its clear as day. Trump is a traitor to this country and all his supporters are as well. He is the only one playing dirty, criminal, traitor and a thug. News flash for you: you are getting voted out.

                                Lie #1:  "Here in America, we're trying to get Trump to exit the Oval Office."  I almost stopped there, but wrote this reply instead: --------- My reply:  America isn't doing any such thing.  A party of frauds pretending to fight for what I believe in (the right to choose, LGBT rights, protecting the environment) are messing with the dumbed-down minds of those still hanging onto a compromised, contaminated Democratic party.  If you're fighting for the causes I believe in, and you fight dirty, I vote you off the playing field.  And what America is doing is mopping the floor with you bitches.  You are getting voted out.  To hell with you.  ---------------  Here's where I had to actually stop:   Hellen Merrin's just about ready to say her line, when she asks, "What's the name of the guy I'm supposed to be talking to?"   She doesn't know, she doesn't care.  She knows zip about this subject, she's just playing to a dumbed-down US television audience and keeping alive her career as an actress.  As an actress, she's just great.  As a human being, she's an actress, and that won't do in the real world where people care about real things.

                                    ________________So this is supposed to suggest that the president merely asking for a favor, any favor at all, from a foreign leader is itself an illegal act? Well that makes it so very simple even a child could understand it! How could anyone who used to enjoy watching Stephen not feel disappointed?

                                                    Best line ever, there’s no way of saying that sentence that’s not considered guilty. Precisely! The words themselves and in the specific order they are used makes the sentence guilty. Improper. Inappropriate. And with any luck impeachable. Let’s put an end to this tyrant and move on so the country can heal.
