6:15 What in the hell are you talking about? Your comment makes no sense. Since you're so pro communist China why don't you move there? You know, you democrats have always had your heads up China's butt and then complain about no jobs here. You people are so flipping stupid.
Oh and does Biden know where he is today. That's just like you idiots to put a man in the White House that can't even remember who he and loves to fondle little girls.

^^Who Trump? You know he likes to grab them by the pussy.

I dunno, that was just him talking about it. Ol Two-finger Biden seems to have actually done it. Without consent.

How ironic is it that Remdesivir, the drug now being touted as a method of shortening the recovery time of Covid-19 patients (not as a preventative or a "cure") was developed by Gilead, a gene-therapy lab that has been under attack since its beginning by the "Pro-Life" fanatics!

Guess all that "baby-killing" genetic research they've been screaming about for years might have been worthwhile, right?

^^ 7:15.. you must still get your information by the Pony express. Biden seems to be the one that grabs the pussy. And then enter Killary the harasser or her Husband's pussy grab, the same day as the scandal hit the press. Grab that pussy boy. Please use the girl's bathroom. Men don't need you in ours.

The drug Remdesivir touted 100mg tablet $950.00 US Dollars, verses Hydroxychloroquine Price $00.80 cents. US.......... No Wonder!

356 shhh we are not suppose to think like that. The media says HCQ does not work isn't that enough, no need to listen to the doctors actually treating patients who report HCQ works the best.

Biden can win if he just disappears and returns in November. Trump will do Trump in.
