Democrats at their gaslighting again it's them who are doing the sex trafficking not Matt Gaetz. The FBI is corrupt and they know what's going on at the border with the little kids and the fake phone numbers. But hey what's a democrat if you can't blame someone else for what you are doing. BTW is Quinton Lucas preparing for his next big riot that's coming soon?

Their days in office are so numbered.

Living large in downtown KCMO!
Oh, and already well on the way for an even larger record year of homicides.
