I think you meant Bidee boy ,clitoris', Huntndope and Obummer. Confused on who has gotten what ? The Russian and Ukraine link have been proven in your backyard, not others.

Not so @8:20, Eric has stated publicly that the Trump Organization has been floated for decades on Russian money fed through Deutsche Bank, because, as he said "nobody else will loan money to us". Or perhaps you believe Eric Trump is just trying to make his Dad look bad?

And remember, when Junior was testifying before Congress, when he met with the Russians to get "dirt on Hillary", he had been in contact with the same people for years, arranging loans. Possibly trying to sabotage Dad?

And the entire feed of the "Hunter Briefcase" fiasco was proven to be "disinformation" that had been passed on to Rudy two years before by Ukrainians then in power, some of the same ones the President tried to blackmail and got himself impeached for.

Alyssa Milano gave a talk explaining her 2 abortions. Saying it "wasnt the right time" for kids. Even though she was a very rich actress then.

But now she has kids. What will the kids think when they grown up and realize she killed their older siblings. And would have killed them too if the "time wasnt right"? Whats wrong with people?

What if your Mom had aborted you? Would you be ok with it?
