Resident appreciates satirical Trump letter

I believe the phrase goes as the going gets tough, the tough get going. Our member of Congress, Elise Stefanik, has certainly been going these past few weeks. As she works to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in our area, Elise has been speaking to local media in multiple interviews and to us directly in tele-town halls. She is doing everything in her power to keep us informed during this unprecedented crisis.

I am glad that we have someone like Elise representing us in Congress. She was one of the largest and most vocal supporters of the stimulus bill, which will inject hundreds of dollars into all of our hands directly. And she fought to get it back on track when U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi held it hostage for her partisan reasons.

Elise Stefanik is working with all levels of government including federal, state and local to solve this problem that we are all facing as quickly as possible. That is why I will be more than happy to vote for her in November.

These pro Stefanik letters come right from her campaign--robo-letters." I am so proud to have Elise as my representative because . . ." followed by vague statements. Thank goodness Elise is handing out the CDC postcards titled Trump's advice to prevent the Corona virus. Thanks so much for all her teleconferencing. Just what we need vapid words from a Congresswoman who has sold her soul for political expediency. Hope I don't catch her virus!

“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”


With a little imagination it’s not hard to picture the Lying Fake Holme’s sitting at home alone, Lying Fake Fox News pundits screaming in the back ground… dazed and confused, as he anxiously reflects as to why the Lying Fake President’s “theory” has yet to materialize.

Hang in there buddy. According to the calendar you still have another 22 days to go.

You never know.


Hey Tom! How many times did Stefanik vote to repeal or defund the ACA? Simple question & yet Stefanik or her staff don't really have an answer.

Affordable universal healthcare for all Americans might help quell a Global Pandemic right now, don't ya think?

Flashback quote:

“We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here… and isn’t it refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of President Obama.”

— Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnamy, on Fox News on February 25, 2020.


I predict that Stefanik and Trump will cause the sun to come up tomorrow.

Holmes -- the real one

Yeah, they're working hard to make that happen.


Unfortunately, for many people it will not.


Coronavirus is a “Democratic Hoax”, ask the President and Sen Hannity!

This is natural selection folks. The North Country wants to die. Stefanik will move away the moment she is out of Congress.



Holmes -- the real one

Stefanik is a Republican hoax.
