What is the Pentagon playing at?

It makes you wonder what crazy Hillary will do!

The president, like all president, is trapped in the bubble and is therefore clueless. Incredibly, he is telling the American people not to believe their lying' eyes but to listen to the experts telling them how well off they really are but just don't realize it.

Another launch of a lead balloon.

They say it, and they believe it.

A whole lot of people here in the US don't believe it, and Bernie and the Donald are calling bullshit on it.
