It’s time for Jessie to join him for encouraging civil insurrection against law abiding businesses.
Where’s my Bud franchise ?
You realize how close JR. was to becoming a US Senator and then ....who knows as he followed Zero’s path.
Fudge. Breathtakingly cringe worthy. You get the government you deserve.

The Karaoke defense - why not?
Nobody knows the trouble I seen,
Nobody knows the sorrow....
In my best Hillary Clinton Black Church speaking voice...
