Insecure People Hate Without Cause

Do not let the hatred of you that may be flagrantly or clandestinely expressed by others rule your life.

For no reason at all, some people may hate you. They do so simply because their low self-esteem perceives your confidence as a threat that brings out their own insecurities.

Treason and Donald J. Trump

On Monday, February 5, 2018, Donald J, Trump gave a speech in Blue Ash, Ohio in which he slammed Democrats of the United States House of Representatives and United States Senate for not standing and for not applauding during his January 30, 2018 State of the Union address as “un-American” and “treasonous.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden was not pleased and called Trump “a joke” on Tuesday, February 6, 2018.

Hakeem Jeffries, a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, from New York’s 8th congressional district in Brooklyn and Queens, took to the House floor on February 6, 2018 in response to Trump’s inferred allegation that Congressional Democrats were treasonous in their refusal to applaud during Trump’s State of the Union.

Read the Washington Examiner article:
Hakeem Jeffries to Trump: ‘How dare you lecture us about treason’ by Melissa Quinn, February 6, 2018.

In typical Trump fashion, according to a Trump spokesperson, Trump was just clowning around when he suggested that Congressional Democrats had committed treason.

Adolf Hitler. Donald Trump

I found an interesting meme showing Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump side by side.

Can anyone tell me what is not factual about its contents?
