Andrew Cuomo has to be the most narcisstic asshole in America.

Calling himself Al Pacino and Fauci the Robert DeNiro of fighting Covid.

I guess that makes little brother Chris; Fredo.

China Joe probably gets a 10% cut from Communist China for every mask made in China and sold in America.

Stolen Election. Fuck China Joe Biden and Fuck the Democrat Party.

Deniro is pissed at the world . Partially because his father was a flaming tranny homo of embarrassment and then his black wife took all his money and broke his dumb ass. To that one should say both are his fault. 1- he followed his homo hate by entering a gay surrounded lifestyle of a star and 2 - he married a black person and thought he would have a stable and financially secure life. LOL. Tough guy DeNegro.
