  2. Ten actual quotes from President Bafoon:

    1. "So you go ahead and you stack spaghetti sauce at a store, and and and a supermarket, you control the guy or the woman who runs the brings out the carts on on on ah, on a forklift."

    2. "High-speed rail at 200 miles an hour from Charlotte, one, and another line going from, in Florida, down to Tampa. Another line, if we had moved Gov, we would have had that tunnel fixed in New York now. The money was there to get it done."

    3. "Could.. take care if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care running a you know, a department store, thing, uh, you know, where the second floor of the ladies department or whatever."

    4. "And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again. So I learned about roaches, and about kids jumping on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap.”


    5. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”

    6. “I may be Irish but I’m not stupid.”

    7. "I guess what I'm trying to say without boring you too long at breakfast—and you all look dull as hell, I might add. The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!"


    8. "His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul."

    9. "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids."

    10. "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent... I'm not joking."

  4. If that many people are getting vaccinated then why are they pushing it so hard with the ads on TV? I highly doubt 500K in the entire metro got the shot. BUT I will have to say I think all democrats need to get it and fast. It's going to make you glow at night and maybe even grow a tail.
