  1. Why would President Trump or VP Pence or for that matter, any decent American, want to be at the funeral of America’s enemy and enemy of America’s Greatest President?

    • Just another dittohead here
      Wow so many ?
      The fellow devoted himself to his country.He was hardly some fifth columnist or leftist fellow traveler.Even after he lost in ’08,he went back and continued doing the his best he could for the Nation.
      Even the rest of the world respects him like few others

      • Devoted himself to his country by killing 134 sailors on the USS Aircraft Carrier and seriously injured another 161 sailors who lost their legs, arms or eyes.

        Who cares whether haters of America and haters of America’s greatest President respect an enemy of the country. He’d be best off to immediately go to Iran with his cronies where they’ll make a huge funeral for him the way he’d want and bury him, hopefully together with all his cronies including Obama.

        By the way, read some real news for a change instead of parroting fake news’ propaganda.
