Thanks, MAGAts, for continuing to spread COVID. I'm hoping your family now experiences the hoax symptoms from the hoax Democrat virus you passed around at the Thanksgiving table.

Enjoy the intubation tube, hospital bills, exhaustion of all financial resources, and bankruptcy. Better not see your lazy, leech as in line for gubmit handouts as well. Cockroaches.

Anyone who has followed Cramer's advice on "Mad Money" has probably gone mad, and they've certainly lost money.

Jimmy Kimmel is a big bag of steaming shit.

The guy started his career with blackface and the most chauvenistic comedy show on cable, The Man Show, and now he pretends to be a Marxist progressive to make money.

Typical lying Democrat.

Heard the latest lunacy from Trump Planet?

Some jackass in Georgia is calling on Trump to "suspend the Constitution and declare Martial Law" so he and others can "exercise their Constitutional Rights"!

Hey, Dumbass - if Trump could somehow "suspend the Constitution",

And others are calling for a "shooting Civil War" - guess they have never heard what happened last time some fools tried that.

I completely agree that no GOPers should vote in Georgia until the changes in voting requested are made...especially on January 5th. Don't be bullied, stay home.
