    That was one of the most beautiful days what are you talking about? Are you defending the US govt? How sick of a person must you be? No country in the history of the world has caused more damage to others than the US govt. aww did nancy Pelosi get scared and pee her diapers? Did poor Mitch McConnell have to lock himself in an office like a dog? That’s good! At least they didn’t have their houses, families, friends all bombed for doing nothing, like they have done for years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years to the rest of the world, that would be real karma for those fuckers. I’d bet you would have worn a brown shirt in 1940s Germany.

    Interesting you would mention a senator who helped him was a Republican but not mention the fact the senator preforming the act was a Democrat. I mean if you want to have an honest conversation about it you should do that, but by doing what you did it is clear bias, which I would have hoped you would be above.

    Buddy, party lines have reversed. I know you’re kinda dumb but you have to know this. Democrats and Republicans have switched ideologies since the fifties and sixties. Also I didn’t even notice that he had mentioned what party that they were from. He kinda just said it in passing, he didn’t mean literally anything bias. I mean are you gonna discredit the whole video because he mentioned the party a guy was in one time? Come on. I am a moderate conservative, and I have no issue about bias in this video.
