Joe Stolen sure is duum.
And not very “virile” at all.
And I’m certain he is NOT the one
Who is in charge, after all.
dumbvirate: Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, John Kerry
or better - tri-dumbvirate
DU - Democrat Underground aka DUmmies
UM - to hesitate
Virate - to inundate with viruses.
duumvirate - DUmmies hesitantly inundating with viruses.
Example Those Dummies protested in the street and duumvirated everyone.
The duumvirate, an ancient Roman institution, is not to be confused with the dumbvirate, the council of Democrat apparatchiks who are making decisions for the senile Biden adminisitration.
The biden administration is NOT a duumvirate between biden and harris. It is really administration by a committee of shadow “presidents”—i.e., a Politburo!!!!
Besides that, the “vir” in “duumvirate” means “man”. harris is a woman. So there is no duumvirate whatsoever!!!!
In our family, my wife and I are a duumvirate.
Then it's possibly a DUUMVAGRATE?............
A duumvirate is when two people are in charge, but the United States is currently suffering through a vacuumvirate where no one is in charge.
Would Harris be a dumbvirago?
Are Joe and the ho
a real duumvirate or
just a dumbvirate?
