14. I can't get behind some holding up.a likeness off a severed head.
Fri Jun 2, 2017, 05:37 PM
Jun 2017

Even though i dislike tRump and his politics what she did IMO was over the top and innappropriate. CNN rightfully gave her the boot.

She has the right to do whatever she wants but what she did imo is not socially acceptable. The fact that there are offensive aholes on the right doesn't justify her actions.
