  1. This MAGA cat has exposed himself as a closet racist. He has no problem soliciting businesses from Blacks and brown people but aligns himself with the most racist president since Andrew Jackson.

    I kept wondering how many internet marketers are among the freaks who attended the protest in DC, little did I know that someone from the ClickFunnels world actually stormed the capital and gleefully boasted about it.

    Trump is exposing y’all to the world. Racist pigs!


    • Can you clarify exactly what makes Trump racist, other than MSM tropes? Trump was the first club owner in Florida to allow blacks and Jews in and prior to his running for president (he truly is an outsider). I know a very wealthy man who I thought was conservative state that he was going to donate to Kamala Harris’ campaign in Calif. and I stated that she’s a liberal and his response is (he’s in the .001% club) “we can handle her.” They couldn’t handle Trump so every tool in the shed was brought out to get rid of him. Yet people like you believe the lies. How sad.
