    The Liar and Chief. can't even tell the truth about his "illegal alien" uncle. He lived with the "illegal alien" for about three weeks and he even lied about that.

    what a president you people elected for us, an illegal drunk uncle and an illegal aunt living on welfare and in public housing meant for Americans.

    We deserve the government we elect. Sadly the rest of us are stuck with it.
