I hope somebody tells him.

Or maybe he's just trying to meet the ship at the shore and claim he brought it in.

I really Wonder if those AF pilots will think about how their fellow vets gave their lives for the traitors who kneel at the football game. Sad day when the air force kneels to hatred and disrespect too. Makes me want to disrespect the vets that support this. As a matter of fact I do disrespect them. They are traitors too.

I’d like to screw that Jenna gal real deep and hard. I’ve only screwed on other gal named Jenna. She had bigger tits than this one.

@11:07-and yet, you un-American fucktard, those pilots gave their lives so those players can do anything they want at the football game. That's America you seditious, treasonous fuck. If you don't think so, you need to get your commie ass over to China STAT. Shove all your phony patriotism up your gaped ass.

Trump's favorite pollster just released his extensive study of how Trump managed to lose the Election.

It turns out that the biggest loss was in the American voter's belief in Trump's honesty and integrity (big surprise) and, while Trump did manage to increase his support slightly among all Minority Groups, his biggest losses of likely voter support were among the Elderly White population and especially among White Males over 55!

Wonder if it's sheer coincidence that the losses were in the group that contains the most Veterans and Veterans Spouses, and whether the contempt that Trump and the Trump Cultists have for America's Military (see @11:07 above) and that they display constantly had anything to do with his managing to "snatch Defeat from the jaws of Victory"?

Unemployed gay momma's basement BLM imbecile or tree dwelling fat flea eating bonobo Chimpy libtard troll, is awake and active.

Be prepared for amazing progressive stupidity. Remarks may include such terms as: CHUD, geezer, racisssst, MAGAT, Maude, boomer, Trumptard and weird. Often starts with two or more silly little ^^ marks. Also, very often pretends to be someone else complimenting and supporting his own prior inane posts. It's obvious when this happens, as nobody thinks they're clever.

It is strongly recommended one should ignore what he/she/it posts as it may result in permanent brain damage, which would be evidenced by voting dimocrapic.

Wow. Where to start with this one, 1:20. Who or what is unemployed? Who or what is gay? The momma could be unemployed, as could the basement, or ..., hell it could be anyone or anything. Could you please repeat fourth grade so you can learn to get your point across? And of course, with a post like that one, you might want to reconsider calling anyone an imbecile.
