  —  Mexican Proverb
[As long as #45 is a liar and moral coward, no one should ever believe he even asked Mexico to pay for the wall, particularly since they already announced (before he was elected) that they would not.  If he publicly asked (or demanded) and they refused, #45 would have been publicly outed as the incompetent “deal-maker” he really is.  —  KMAB]

  —  Abraham Lincoln
[A message to Donald Trump – who conspired with the Russians to defraud the American public and win the Presidency in the 2016 election:  A life of wealth and privilege which was granted to you by your father will soon be sacrificed on the altar of your ego, incompetence and criminal hubris.  You will be driven from office either by election or by impeachment.  And you will have to live with THAT and the judgement of history.
