(Reuters) – President-elect Donald Trump, in an apparent reference to media reports that the intelligence briefing he received last week included an unsubstantiated report that Russia had compromising information on him, said on Twitter on Tuesday: “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT.”

      Better idea shut off your computer as nothing you or any of you moron have to say is worth while,its always HRC fault, the crooked media,as Herr Trump is as innocent asthewhite snow so take a break mhave a nice wiskey and shut the hell up, thank you

      • FromThe70s

        Only the crooked stuff she did is her fault. For one example, blaming Benghazi on an anti-Islamic video. She said that. It was a calculated lie to serve as a smoke screen. I have no delusion about Trump being a cherub. But he is a much better option to her. She would continue selling us out to globalists and socialists. He is going to be a better president for all of us. Calm down and pretty please, with sugar on top, don’t misspell whiskey again. Now go get your homework done.
