    Thinks he is such a good product he can carry the show.

    • The issue of Social Media is very complex. It has completely changed the playing field. Whats ironic here is that Obama, whose very election was predicated on it, seems to be criticising Trump, who we know uses it a much more direct way.

      • I think the problem is that elites can no longer control the narrative.

        A selection of erudite comments from Trumpy’s supporters on the Breitbart article.

        “Isn’t Barry technically a Brit? Kenya was still a British colony or protectorate when he rolled down the alley there.

        The thing is Barry never had citizenship.

        Get lost Harry !!! Idiot.
        Get lost Barry too. Go and marry each other…

        Who cares…Trump is busy cleaning the Brown skid stain off America…
        MAGA

        MUCH of the guest list for this wedding will be behind bars by May

        typical libtard…responding to things that no one even said.
        I dont think anyone here gives half a 💩 if trump goes to this douchebag’s wedding. If i were him, i wouldnt go anyway!

        But the donald’s going to care, big time. If Obama goes and he doesn’t he’ll see it as the ultimate snub, but he’ll tell everybody he didn’t want to go anyway.

        Without Trump and with the HildeCunt as President the 2nd Civil War would already be underway.

        michelle could give the prince one of her old jockstraps to sniff. Degenerate liberals love the smell of tranny balls.

        If you do get an invite, you blue-blooded devil you, make sure and send Trump a picture of yourself curtsying before the Queen…he will be so upset that he will probably resign and appoint Hillary as POTUS; and then, all the mystical magical unicorns will come out of hiding and bestow their blessings on humanity.

        But Melania is beautiful and Michelle looks like a fullback!

        More like a linebacker

        Yessiree. the first First Lady who had wider shoulders than her hubby. Ewe.

        Not full back, hunch back of Notre Dame. Speaking of which there will be a time change for the superbowl as it has been moved to be played on Micheles ass.

        Melania looks like she’s made of plastic.

        Like you ever f’ed a woman, much less a woman that looks half as good.

        Michelle is UGLY! Now go away”

        Social media is becoming the news source for many.

        Next challenge will be how to educate them in using Snopes etc before accepting all that’s posted.

    Why evangelicals are happy with Trump

    “‘Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem, where the King of Kings — where our soon-coming king — is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel.” That was a Florida state senator named Doug Broxson, introducing Trump at a rally in Pensacola, Fla., Friday night, cheered by a large crowd of believers eager to get on with the thousand-year reign of Jesus they were promised in Sunday school.

    This is all conveniently, if somewhat cryptically, discussed in the Book of Revelation, or in more palatable form in the “Left Behind” series of apocalyptic novels. There are some minor theological quibbles about the exact sequence in which all this will play out, but the prevailing theory holds that rebuilding the temple that was destroyed by the Romans in the year A.D. 70 is a precondition for it to occur. And because America, to Christian evangelicals, stands in a special relationship to Israel — and therefore to God — establishing an American Embassy in Jerusalem is an important first step.

    “The prophets’ words of prophecy are coming forth from the Bible and becoming facts right before our eyes,” said the American-born rabbi Yehuda Glick, a member of Israel’s Parliament from the ruling Likud party who is active in the movement to restore the temple. An organization called the Temple Institute is meticulously reconstructing ritual artifacts for use there and has a project underway to breed a perfect red calf, to be killed and burned and its ashes mixed with pure spring water to perform a ritual purification that is a necessary precondition to occupying the temple.

    But if evangelical Christians are correct, history will take a very different course: The Antichrist will arise to desecrate the rebuilt temple, which will cause the Jews to finally realize that Jesus was the real Messiah, triggering a mass conversion. There will be seven years of tribulation, the Ten Plagues times 10,000, the worst thing that the Jews have ever gone through. (“When I explained this to my husband, he said, ‘Worse than the Holocaust?’ And I said, Yes! Worse than that!” Bass says.) And at the end of those seven years, there will be Armageddon, and in the middle of that battle, Jesus will return with all of the righteous from heaven and defeat the forces of evil and institute the millennial kingdom, the thousand-year reign of Christ. That’s probably not quite what Rabbi Glick has in mind to happen, but for now they are working together to get the process underway.

    And it was all set in motion by Donald Trump.”

    😬 Jesus! What was he thinking❓😕
