The only people who give a damn about celebs are the democrats. Other than that they are the most hated people in the world and thanks to their help Trump was acquitted. Most people know what they are like and how satanic they are. You have to wonder about people like Alyissa whatever her name is and people like Stevie Nicks and others who kill their babies.

Sorry but the George Floyd thing is funny.

@ 2:16 - Distribution of the vaccine began under Donald Trump, not Hiden Joe Biden. Also it would not be even possible to distribute a vaccine now if Donald Trump had not made development of the vaccine a top priority producing it in record time. You need to get your facts straight. Any take your stupid Hollywood babies put them into a knapsack and throw them in the Missouri River.

2:16 - Keep believing that shit and I will be president!!

Thanks moron!

It's too bad the Libtards aren't trying to find the killers of the two black men in Seattle's CHOP Zone last summer. I guess they don't give a sh*t about that because they can't blame it on a police officer or a Republican. The Libtards are ruining America by the minute they're in office. Don't do anything unless they give you permission to do it or else you'll be canceled quickly, your name ruined and you thrown into poverty for the rest of your life.

Trump delivers the vaccine in record time for Biden to take advantage of it and he fails miserably.

All of you racist white folks need to shut up, it was people just like you who raided the capital and killed people. It is people like you who allowed Trump to get away with everything he has done including inciting a riot. You all are a pathetic group of people, universally hated at home and abroad. Totally unholy and corrupt.

^^^ everything you just said is a lie and you know it. So desperate of you.

5:25 well you got to admit that the country is in a complete disaster with white people in charge of everything. Covid has been speading like wildfire, upwards of 485k dead, white folks sit back for 4 years and allowed Trump to steal rape and destroy everything, while 72 million whites voted for him mostly because of his racist policies and the list goes on and on. Then on Jan. 6 your lily white terrorist converged on the US Capital and broke in and killed people, and all you sick white dudes can do is get on these blogs and continue to spread you lies and racism. Mope not a lie at all, and you know it.
