  1. They succeeded fully. I personally knew they were doing this the summer before the election. Russians are easy to spot if you know what to look for. Most people are far to stupid to see the obvious propaganda.

  2. Democrats play book tell a lie over and over have the corrupt media tell it over and over and it becomes the truth .
    All Americans need to vote all dems out in 2020 .
