It's a shame SF didn't win the game. I'll bet they would have respected their fans way more than the the red foreskins. Don't you just hate that mahomes he's the one who comes here and shit's all over the fans, plus he looks so weird and freaky. Above the law cause he's a little black sambo.

@6:25 It’s a shame you didn’t die last night. Fingers crossed tonight’s the night! Mahomes is your daddy!

6:25 PM. If you're looking for attention. You got it.
Yes they did wrong. But everyone will get over it and move on except probably you.

Now to you,you low life prick, don't you know how to behave like a white person should? I would like to see a picture of your ugly inbred mug standing by your mommas trailer so we can all check out your perfect master race features.

I am a white guy with some long held racist tendencies but you are a shame on all levels to white people everywhere.

"Trump says Pelosi 'broke the law' by tearing State of the Union speech"

Every time you think this president can't become more deranged, you find out you were wrong.

Inspired by the SuperBowl halftime show, Abigail's only regret was that she doesn't have a young daughter to mentor!!!

Haven't you researched this? It is illegal.

Yes, @8:32 I've researched this, and, despite what Fox News "Commentators" may tell you, it is NOT a government Document (the certified copy the WH was required to send to the National Archives is,) and therefore it was a "gift" from Trump to Pelosi, and became her property to dispose of as she wished.

The fact of Trump actually having touched it does not make that copy some sort of "National Holy Relic" in anyone's mind (maybe with one exception).

9:48 and I should give a fuck, why?
Just because Trump has shit for brains doesn't excuse The Speaker of the GD House.

She took the bait, she lost it. He won, that's how
it works.
If you have ever boxed you would know tempers lose matches. This extends to a lot in life.

She looked petty, no strength in tit for tat politics even if someone else is doing it first second or third.
Playground shit. If you were impressed with her actions, so be it.

I think Pelosi is fucking hilarious. She gets so mad she looks like she is going to cry.

Ripping up a copy of a speech is against the law?

Don't think so, but I'm glad Mr. Sharpie-in-chief brought it up.

What is illegal is altering an official government weather map, like one with a NOAA hurricane projection. There is a specific federal code on the books with a 90 day jail sentence.

That's right. LOCK HIM UP!
