Some of you should recognize these.

quote [ Thousands of Facebook ads bought by Russians to fool U.S. voters released by Congress ]

The misinformation about this is still going on. How long is it going to be OK for a political party in the United States to be underwritten by a foreign power?

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee released thousands of Russian Facebook ads on Thursday, offering the public its first in-depth look at the troubling messages used to heighten tensions among Americans during and after the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

These news stories are so ridiculous! Just take a moment and think about them:
1) Why would a celebrated RELIGIOUS leader endorse someone as morally compromised as Trump?
2) How would a politician involved in sex acts with minors be a viable candidate?
3) And selling weapons to America's enemy? What patriotic citizen would do that?
4) (I got nothing ..... yet)

While these headlines may or may not be true, Hillary, Francis, and probably even Trump are clearly Reptilians. They barely bother to disguise Melania, Don Jr. and Eric.
