How shameless they have become!
These idiots show repeatedly everything that is wrong with the establishmenr.
I'd imagine we'll see a number of accounts suddenly posting articles full of Haley accolades.
Nimarata Randhawa (Nikki Haley) does not have a chance in Hell of being
President, no matter how much rich donors throw money to her.
Icky Niki will disown the MAGA agenda on day one. She wants to worshipped by the establishment like the First Wookie.
