MY BLACK FEMALE SENATE NOMINEES FROM CAL. KEEP BUILDING THE LIST
LISSO TO REPRESENT THE MORBIDLY OBESE
TOO SMALL A JOB FOR OPRAH
BERKELEY CONGRESSWOMAN BARBARA KEE, NOT COMMUNIST ENOUGH.
LA MAYIOR KAREN BASS, GET HER OUT OF AN IMPORTANT JOB SHE IS UNQUALIFIED FOR AND INCOMPETENT TO ONE WHERE THEY CAN HIDE HER.

Three of the many major reasons that CA should be given back to mexico...
A random selection from Folsom would be better than any fo those three filthy communists...
It will be newsome. A checkmark on his way to the White House.

I ACCEPT CLAIMING LIKE SOME OF THE KARSDASHIANS WHO HAVE A LOT OF BLACK IN THEM, SO TO SPEAK.

Tricky? Newsom just needs to go to the nearest hospital and pick up the latest lobotomized patient or he can just choose Shiff for brains.
Armenia is not in Africa, it’s in Asia.
He’ll make the appointment inside of two weeks. Dems can’t do w/o a majority for more than that.
Still, Newsom reiterated this month that he plans to appoint a Black woman. “We hope we never have to make this decision, but I abide by what I’ve said very publicly on a consistent basis,” he said during a Sept. 10 interview on “Meet the Press.”
In other news, today Governor Gavin Newsom announced that going forward he/she/it now identifies as a black woman.

The Kardashians aren’t black.
