O Bummer. Shouldn’t they hire Dump insider instead? I have a bad feeling Dump will get elected again with all the crazy left wing demonstrators causing mayhem and “marching” for causes they care little about.

So you are continuing to repeat Faux News propaganda I see.

You should get out more!

You are the perfect spokesman for re-electing Dump. All the Faux news cheerleaders love it when you talk dirty, because that will push more and more people away from center to Dump.

Sounds like Sparky is already planning on voting for Dump again!

THE perfect example of getting people to vote for Dump: tell them to do so after making Dump opposition look like horrible a-holes.

LMAO, the PERFECT EXAMPLE of someone so weak that they decide critically important choices of theirs to make based on the actions of others, or blaming others for why they did it again!


Hire someone from the previous opposing political side!

Who made that decision? I can’t imagine it was Elon.
