There ya go…make it political in the most uneducated GOP way you can. Maybe your post should have read something like this…..

Maybe we’ll be Gary by the end of the year. When will people learn that GUNS aren’t out to help you, just like our epic failure, self serving GOP, President. Re-elect that moron and watch as America becomes more and more like the Soviet ‘Socialist’ Republic that you republicans are so afraid of. Or maybe we should all drink Lysol and shoot golden rays of sunshine up our anus??? I’d say don’t drink the kool-aid but I’m pretty sure there isn’t any left at this point. This country is becoming the proverbial “Shit hole” A phrase Cheeto Benito so eloquently uses to describe other nations (our once upon a time allies). Maybe, just maybe….someday…..all of the Trumpanzees will evolve and become part of a civilized society. Doubt it though. Fear and ignorance are powerful motivators.

Someone died. Someone lost a family member and all you do is whine about Democrats like your equally uneducated leader. Lemmings…..
