I Have One Last Thing To Say About Hur's Report [View all]

Robert Hur wrote in his report that President Biden couldn't even remember when his son died.

What a horrible, despicable thing to say. Everyfuckingbody should be condemning Hur for putting that lie in his report.

If Merrick Garland read that line in Hur's report and allowed it to be made public, then Garland is complicit.

No President Biden can't fire Garland, it is way too late, besides, I'm not sure that incompetence is legal grounds for firing someone.

I'm going grocery shopping, maybe I will buy a chunk of big fat bologna.

Because laughing at someone's grief and associated memory loss is so funny, right? hlthe2b Feb 10 #93
