    And Stephen Colbert stole the phrase from comedian Carlos Mencia, the original author.

              And yet they still talk shit even though Barry said it 1st. That's how petty, childish and hypocritical the left is. Cracks me up with all the Bernie supporters here. Bernie actually said his Navy flunky crackhead junkie son was a better man than him! Who makes a statement saying a crackhead is better than them?!

                                                      In England, Moot is slang for a shit of the particularly foul smelling kind. A bit like Trump which is slang for a loud obnoxious fart.

                                                        First, this aligator thing is not true. Second, I have never ever seen Colbert drown into these democratic political games. All politicians are corrupt. But blindly attacking one person or one side each and every minute in all networks with childish clowning style, this is what even the fox news doesn't do.
                                                        Turning a show into a stupid political harassing campaign is an act of desperation. I'm not a Rep, and I don't want to watch Rep's media. But every time I watch CNN msnbc etc, they are screaming and taunting like 3 years old girls and boys fighting in the kindergarten and talking very stupid conspiracy theories 24/7. At least fight with some honor.

It's Trump from his head to his toes. It's why Putin (who hates America) put him in office. He must have laughed a lot that people cheered and applauded a man who hadn't a clue about the stats he pulled out of the air. A guy who said he could shoot someone and his followers still love him. And it explains why he has no morals. Many retarded people just don't understand what morals are. That's why he can cheat on his wives so openly. He didn't believe he was doing anything wrong. It's why he told the General to shoot the people in the caravan. It's why he's mentally a child. Why he tries to hide it. Many of them do. And you remember the deposition he did where he stared at the page? And then he said he forgot his glasses. He doesn't wear glasses. There's an example of a man in this article who did the same thing to hide his retardation. The exact same thing. It's why he said when the wall was built he wanted his name on it like everything else he owns. Remember when he had a man sit across from at a Cabinet meeting and praise him and praise him? He does that to feed his ego. When he first got in he really didn't understand as a President what that meant. He learned he can get anyone to do anything! And it says the retarded person looks to authority figures to be approved. Wow. Trump isn't running this country. Steve Miller is. He's the one who got Trump on this wall bit in the first place. And it was his idea to kidnap the Mexican children and put them in a concentration camp where six of them died. And it's why Trump never said a word about their deaths! He doesn't believe he's done anything wrong. No Doctors, nurses and they sleep on the floor on mats with those lite emergency blankets and that's it! In Clint a one year old got as much food as a 17 year old and Trump doesn't care. He and Steve didn't bother to go down and see the camps. Both are cowards. He doesn't even love his kids because he's not capable of loving them or his grandchildren who he calls brats. He only loves himself. I could go on but please read this. It will shock you. Songs
