She might consider not even running again.

It will be hard to outlive this.

Some enviro group took back an award they gave her.

“She probably thought voting RED meant voting WITH Republicans.”

Does that mean that she does NOT get the food pellet reward?

Racist vote button configuration. Call the U.N. for an investigation!
