What idiot staffer thought it was a good idea to get into that kind of direct sparring match with Trump on Twitter? Let the 9713967012 Clinton proxies handle it.
I feel like I need to know why the banner is the Twilight kids along with a velociraptor.
PA has some of the weirdest liquor laws.
My dog really like the Blue Buffalo stuff for some reason, so that's what I've been getting for the last couple months. I might have to get the gator stuff just for a laugh.UMC privilege in action, buying overpriced alligator dog just for amusement.
