  1. I suggest you check all the fact-checkers and see how bias they are. They never say Obama’sm Clinton’s other liberals have ever been proven to do anything, it’s sickening.

  2. Can twitter be sued if they call me suicidal! When all I said Buttigieg might have cut his throat when he called the people names, like crooked Hillary did calling people deplorables
