  • awesome content bro

  • somebody has a really hard time doing simple math!! Even if they gave every man, woman and CHILD a thousand dollars it would still not add up to $500 billion dollars. How much money is tRump stuffing in his pocket??

    How much money is he spending on eradicating the actual virus?? So far, he has not mentioned spending ANY money on eradicating the virus.

    PEOPLE ARE DYING AND HIS FIRST AND ONLY CONCERN IS THE ECONOMY!!! That and screwing his own daughter.

  • Turn the volume up! I keep posting that on the news YouTube channels we cant hear on our phones
