Hey, anyone heard anything about Trump lately?

Nope.
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.

If the election was between Trump and Cthulhu the choice would be simple. We would pick the lesser of two evils and let President Cthulhu govern us for the next four years.

In 2015 Trump said it was time to remove the Confederate Flag from capitols to museums.

Four days ago (July 2020) he said: ""All I say is freedom of speech, it's very simple," he replied. "My attitude is freedom of speech. Very strong views on the Confederate flag. With me, it's freedom of speech. Very simple. Like it, don't like it, it's freedom of speech."

Currently he can be found sitting in a corner draped in a Confederate Flag. The question remains, when will both be moved to museums?

This is a very helpful video in terms of understanding Donald Trump: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUTYsl9TTvA

I can think of a very strong reason why Mormons and everyone else should be concerned with the damage Trump and his Postmaster General are doing to the Post Office in order to win the upcoming election. The damage Trump does before November will be reaped with a greater vengeance at Christmas time when gifts do not arrive.

That brand new solid pewter gold-plated Christus statue will be stuck aboard some freighter bound for ports unknown because the sorting machines were removed to interfere with mail-in ballots!!!

Think again about receiving your Liahona in time to prepare for your scheduled talk.

And yet, the few TBMs I still follow on FB are adamant Trump supporters. I don't know why. It baffles me. They are not dumb people. I guess it is to do with voting for the republican party, no matter the outcome. My dad is like that. He does NOT like Trump, but will vote for him anyway. He's republican. Democrats are dangerous and spend too much. I do have one cousin, TBM, that does not live in the US. She thinks Trump is a putz, and should be voted out. Watching her threads (thankfully with translation) shows that her friends find the USA as laughable in a tragic way.

This seems like a pretty big story:

This helps explain Trump's support. It is called Top 10 Obama Scandals. Some of the scandals as told by Fox News were not wearing a suit coat in the Oval Office, Barak and Michelle going out on a date, and wearing a light tan suit.

Oh yeah, seems this calling fallen American soldiers "a bunch of losers" is still a big story:
