What about an employee who lies to all customers every day? Or an employee who won't serve immigrants? Or an employee who refuses to answer questions about continuous corrupt and criminal actions?

The employee we are discussing is, of course, D Trump. Today our top military commander apologized for appearing with Trump during Trump's bizarre photo op which required gassing and beating peaceful protesters. Also Trump has threatened to have the military invade Seattle if the mayor doesn't dominate peaceful protesters. And employee Trump refuses to acknowledge systemic racism associated with the Confederate flag, a prize of his political base of white supremacists. If anyone should be fired, it's Trump. He cares nothing for the safety of Texans who are now suffering a second wave of coronavirus, thanks in part to the stupidity of Gov Abbott for opening Texas while infections were rising. I hope Abbott is fired too.

Hey al, if I were you I'd leave this state with a stupid governor. You would be much happier in New York or Illinois. Let me know what the U haul fees are and I'll pay them....

N/A Martin, as usual you avoid the facts that there's a strong tide turning against Traitor Trump, a pathological liar and sociopath. Since you're paying, the U-haul fees are $5 million. A certified cashiers check made out to me is fine.

Hey al, checks in the mail, as being a democrat that should be normal for you....

I can only assume you're lying, Mr Martin, which as a cult Republican, is normal for you. BTW, what did you think of Bunker boy wetting his diaper?
