Question: Doesn't that sound like something a mobster would say?

As I have said many times before, the average Montana voter is such a blithering moron that they will probably listen to President Lying Sack of Poo and vote against Senator Tester. Who correctly had a hunch that just by being a doctor does not make you qualified to manage the second biggest bureaucracy in the federal government.

We are doomed. Thanks to you stupid Trump supporters.

I think Senator Tester is more familiar with a Democracy. Don't you question who will run the Departments that have not been filled with anyone? One person running everything, always..or, for particular people? Lots to question. Some countries have swallowed it...hope the majority of ours does not☺ A great book by Madelaine Albright is available...a person who has lived it. "Fascism: A Warning".

Regarding Trump's threats and bully tactics, my advice to Senator Jon Tester is that he just Shake It Off! It's gonna be all right!

"'Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off"
by Taylor Swift

As a Korean War Veteran and ex pat Montana I totally support Sen. Tester against the attacks from Trump. He will have my support and money in the upcoming election. We must fight against the tyrant in the White House, Sen. Tester
continues the fight.

The tRumpbots are out in full force on Jon's FB page, lying and insulting folks left and right. Funny thing is, when you post there, you are flagged as a constituent or not. Guess what? The tRumpbots telling lies and calling people names are NOT constituents. It is interesting to see the pattern of what they are being told to say, though.

Another of the many hundreds of reasons I avoid Facebook like the plague. It just makes people of normal intelligence dumber.

It's extremely unfortunate that the citizens of Montana are going to vote out a common-sense moderate, true Montanan and working farmer during this coming election cycle. Especially for a Koch brother extremist like Maryland Matt who lied about his residency on tax forms to get extra tax breaks.

As far as Facebook is concerned, I deleted my account several months ago. It was a great decision. The level of stupid amongst the Trump supporters was amazing. I started to question the basic decency and intelligence of my fellow voters. And not seeing the disinformation spread by the pro-Trump Russian bot army allowed me to focus on fact-based information and news.

Ronny Jackson withdrew from consideration for the job of Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs and now he apparently isn't even going to return as the White House doctor. It seems likely that Senator Tester was onto something and he should be thanked for having the courage to speak up. The U.S. needs more people like Senator Tester in Congress. And President Trump should be ashamed for trying to bully the people of Montana into voting Senator Tester out.

Jon Tester had a duty to call BS on Trump's unqualified pick to lead the Veterans Administration. I am sick of gutless hypocritical Republicans’ unabashed support of their immoral lying leader. We need more Republicans like Vietnam Veteran Chuck Hagel, former Senator and Secretary of Defense, who said “What I heard this morning out of the president and others vilifying Tester, it made me sick. John tester is as clear, direct, honest, transparent and pure on veterans matters as anyone I’ve ever run into.” Hagel went on to say that the GOP needs to stand up to Trump’s outbursts and “say enough is enough.”

I have not seen anything anywhere that points out that he withdrew before any of the complaints against him were even investigated. To me that points out something was there. Being a doctor and looking good on TV are not qualifications for running the VA. Now he is being investigated by the Navy for the complaints against him.

Jon Tester, sitting in the cab of his tractor, looks happy that Montana's winter is over and he can get his crops in.
