Trump is wrong about El Paso. I've walked the streets and delivered to the poorest places since the 70's. I've never had a problem. I've never worried.

Like I said years ago "family values" were here long before it ever became a political catchphrase.

Pretty good for a corpse.

It was a miracle. Then he was resurrected, arrested and charged with capital murder.

Idiot.

He didn't have a MyLife account. It was created by others after he died.

The manifesto seems to be genuinely his.

Stop pretending this wasn't an Alt-Right idiot with a gun who repeated Trump's language to justify his targeting of Hispanics.
