"Trump's Tulsa crowd went wild after he proved he could drink a glass of water with 1 hand."

Now if that's not worth another four years, I don't know what is!

If Eskimo Pie is derogatory then we need to change the name of Italian food, Chinese food, Mexican food, Japanese food, Cajun food, polish food, soul food. and on and on this thing will never stop that's how ridiculous it all is. There's nothing wrong with Eskimo Pie it's been that way for years and there's nothing wrong with uncle Ben's rice or Aunt jemima syrup. It would be different if you called it dago food or zipper head food or spick food but it's not. This is down right stupid and so are the liberals. You people are unhinged radicals.

Eskimo Pies have nothing to do with Eskimos, dummy.

Ranting & raving about how the left is unhinged doesn't make you look like a stable genius.

And your point retard Byron?

It's a cold treat and that is why it was called that years ago. As in Eskimos eating a cold chocolate treat.

And you Byron have no room to rule rather someone else is a stable genus when paperwork exists proving you to be the nut case.

bLIEron is a paid troll, that’s why his posts make no sense, he’s being told what to say by the despicable dimwit party. The problem is the translation from Chinese to English gets mixed up and it ends up making no sense so....

Being happy about anything Tik Tok does is just a sign of being a Chicom asset or in other words...Chairman Xi's cock holster.
