Every word out of trumpturds' mouth is a lie yet his supporters still believe everything he says.

So according to the article...........

" But another man, Tom Gram , told the local outlet  TMJ4  that he's actually owned the 109-year-old store for eight years — and had declined to join Trump's photo op.

So is this one of the people that the BLM "leader" in Chicago who has insurance so he lost nothing and doesn't care cause he can rebuild? So what is the problem with the former owner who himself had spent blood, sweat, and tears and money in the same location who said

"I just appreciate President Trump coming today — everybody here does," Rode said. "We're so thankful we got the federal troops here. Once they got here things did calm down quite a bit."

Wouldn't you be a little melancholy if your old childhood home had been destroyed for no fucking reason?

From your own seeded article. Trump called the owner of the property- who probably owned the building as well. The owner of the business rented the property, including the building, from Rode's. So Rode's suffered a loss.

Of course all this pales to the left's denial of their "not so peaceful" protesters causing damage everywhere they go.

It's the outside agitators, rightwing terrorists, white supremacists who are doing the majority of damage 'everywhere they go'

Like the rest of the Democrats you are vainly searching for those imaginary figures; but can never seem to find them.

Next you will be telling us Antifa is really a right wing terrorist organization.

They're not imaginary.  

I posted something earlier - I'm not sure now where I posted it - there have been over 400 documented cases of outside agitators, right wing terrorists, white supremacists inciting and escalating.

You can add QANon to these scumbags also.

As backup

The White House called John Rode III, who still owns the property and building of the business, the "owner" of the shop.

Was Rode's building destroyed? Yes it was. He suffered a loss at the hands of the left's Brown Shirts. [deleted]

Trump is going to throw money at them but refuses to address the root cause of the problems.

5.1  Ronin2  replied to  Paula Bartholomew @5    3 weeks ago

The root cause of the problem is the Democrats allowing their Brown Shirts to have a free run of cities. 

Trump has nothing to do with their incompetence.

You are correct in an abstract sort of way.  Trump does have nothing to do with anything.  K. McDougal claimed 'he' couldn't finish.

Trump offered federal assistance to those Democrat cities that are burning- the governors and mayors turned him down.

All of the destruction and loss is directly on them.

How do you account for the republican led cities that have experienced rioting and looting? 

Here are just a few of them:

San Diego

Miami

Jacksonville

Oklahoma City

I am not sure why the left are so dumb. Tom Gram, who owns the business is probably a democrat who wants to play politics with his camera store. It is a great disrespect to refuse President's call and to not show up beside him for tv. It is more so when he cries that President showed up with the building owner instead. The camera business had a merchandise value of $20,000.00 to $30,000.00 max inside it before was looted, I suspect. If Tom had paid insurance he is covered, if not, he is out of luck. On the other hand the owner of the building is John Rode III. The building is destroyed as well beside the business. The building is important too, probably more so because Tom can go and rent somewhere else why John has to wait for the building to be rebuilt. John will be paying higher insurance in the future too. Now doesn't Rhode has the right to come on television with the president and stand beside him?

What is wrong with these people?

No

He uses people as props for photo ops.  He cares about no one but himself.  

What is wrong with you people who believe every lie out of trumpturds' mouth?

Otherwise, what a rambling bunch of nonsense.

I believe you are rumbling nonsense. What did I say? The building owner has the right to show up with president whether you like it or not. I, as a lot of other people did not like Obama or Clinton. You did not see any republican making fun of Obama or Clinton like you are doing with Trump with your crazy fake CNN. Liberals are all lunatics that want to overturn an election with riots. President was lawfully elected as so was Obama or others previous to him. Fortunately Trump will be reelected again and you will still cry.

Is that all I have to do to disrespect Trump?

OK - Henceforth I will refuse all calls from the President. And turn down all photo ops.

Take that Donald!
