Tell me what ya know. I’m still little. I just learned my ABC’s. I’ll take history when I’m three! Send Granmpa your answers. quick. . . before he takes his nap!
Numbers 6 & 11 are surely from 45? Several others sound like Ayn Rand, and others like Goebbels (especially the 7th and 8th). On the other hand, it wouldn’t surprise me to find that 45 said them all, though the phrase “cultural elevation” really doesn’t sound like what I’ve become accustomed to hearing from him. Mostly he is about cultural degradation.
How’d you get to be so smart! Must have gone to Marple-Newtown and Oberlin!
It’s too hot to think. Thank the Lord there’s no climate change.
And Elijah is the most adorable little one ever…….and you are now Grandpa and no longer Bumpaa?? Everything changes…..
Isn’t he something? Yup. I’m now Grandpa.

He is, Carolyn. He goes back and forth between Bumpa and Grandpa, but Grandma is his favorite person in the world!
Adolph Hitler for at least the first few….45 has read His scree and is using it as a guide. How long will “we” put up with this?? MSMedia needs to call him what he is- it’s not editorializing, it’s fact providing.
The silence of the GOP is chilling. We’re in for one heck of a ride, Barb! Most of the quotations are Hitler. There’s one by Trump. Can’t remember the other.
