“It could be the emptiness of your words. The taste of your false promises. The ignorance of Laura Ingraham telling Lebron James to ‘shut up and dribble.’ It could also be the imaginary deal with Mexico to build a wall to keep their own people out after you called them lazy immigrants stealing good tax payers money and jobs. Or your complete misunderstanding of the laws of time, space, and history with your delusions of Pocahontas being in the Senate, or Fredrick Douglas still actively participating in anything.” — MA UBU
