So hot, so stupid...
She is a grifter just as is the Clintons.
She’s been such a quick study in learning the time-honored ways of the Democrat party.
Remember. This is the c unit that stole those from her coworkers while she was a barmaid.
Well, speaking for myself, the second part neutralizes the first part...
