    Iran is and always will be a rouge state as long as it's ruled by American and Israeli hatred Islamic ideologues.

    I guess it too much to expect you to understand that political humor needs to be topical in order to be funny.

    Touched a nerve hey! Because the left will not accept they lost the race in 2016, and the fact they think Obama IS the messiah to this day, I think he and Killery are always on topic here and elsewhere!

    I'm not sure that the left thinks Obama is the Messiah. A competent president? Sure. A man of above-average character? No doubt. Perfect savior of humanity? Not at all.

    On the other hand...



    There are lots of legitimate criticisms of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to be made without mischaracterizing your political opponents' position.

    What Happened (Clinton book)

    Copies of What Happened during Clinton's appearance at the Hill Auditorium in October 2017
    The hardcover edition was published on September 12, 2017; it immediately went to the top of the Barnes & Noble, Amazon,[24] and the USA Today bestseller lists.[25]

    It debuted at number one on The New York Times Best Seller List for both hardcover nonfiction and combined print and e-book nonfiction sales where it stayed for 2 weeks.[26][27] It dropped to number two on both lists in its third week.[28] By the beginning of November it had spent six weeks in the top four positions of the list.[29] By the beginning of January 2018 the book had spent sixteen weeks on the list.[30] The following week it fell off.[31]

    What Happened sold 300,000 copies in its first week.[32][33] The first-week sales were lower than her 2003 memoir, Living History, but triple the first-week sales of Clinton's previous memoir, 2014's Hard Choices.[32][34]

    The first-week hardcover sales for What Happened were 167,000.[32][33] This marked the strongest hardcover debut for a nonfiction book since 2012's No Easy Day.[32] Simon & Schuster also announced that What Happened sold more e-books in its first-week than any nonfiction book had since 2010.[32]

    The book debuted at number one of the Publishers Weekly "Top 10 overall" and "hardcover nonfiction" bestseller lists. In its third week on the lists, it dropped to number three of the "Top 10 overall" and to number two of the "hardcover nonfiction" lists with a total of 311,982 hardcover copies sold.[35][36] As of December 10, 2017, the book had sold 448,947 hardcover copies.
    Yup.

    Yup.
    There's a hell of a lot of Democrats in America, likely about half the US population. A large proportion of those people still haven't accepted Killery's defeat in 2016. Why anyone would want to read the ranting and raving of why she thinks she lost is beyond me!

    After 2020, when Cheeto loses and sinks into legal quagmires, there will be a rather large crop of books to come. "What Happened - The Rise And Fall of Donald J. Trump". The post-mortem of the Trump years will be one of the most written topics of political books of the near future.

    Then the battle over the carcass of the GOP will begin. Will it be a final extremist tea party take over? The rise of the next GOP demagogue populist? The attempt at mainstream Republicans to steer back to the center and relative sanity? Will the GOP collapse as a national party and lapse into local fly over red state organizations? Stay tuned for the madness this will all descend into.
