Trump and his supporters
Is the president a danger to our country? Are his supporters delusional?
The Hunter Biden Non-scandal

Stumping For Trump
Actor Jon Voight endorses Trump in an anti-BIden video.
The star began the video by saying: “Biden is evil. Trump must win. He’s real. He will bring back the people’s trust. These leftists are not for the American people; it’s the biggest cover-up ever.”
He continued: “Biden is an extension of the policies of Obama that weakened America and we cannot let that happen again. The left are deceitful and have lied to the American people. They have stripped down her mighty powers for their own ego of power to rule the nation’s economy.
Polls and Political Consequences
French President Emmanuel Macron denounced what he called an “Islamist terrorist attack” against a history teacher decapitated in a Paris suburb Friday, urging the nation to stand united against extremism.The teacher had discussed caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad with his class, authorities said. The suspected attacker was shot to death by police after Friday’s beheading.
Following this week’s announcement that the Israeli actress Gal Gadot will play ancient Egypt’s Queen Cleopatra in a new movie, social media erupted in a bitter battle between advocates for greater diversity in film, and opponents of what is perceived as political correctness gone mad.
