    Meanwhile, dummy-in-chief is allowing and encouraging hordes of locusts across the Southern border without covid testing.
    …keep believing the slight of hand and all its deceptive trimmings about this “fight”
    …the flu-bug is real, but, EVERYTHING after that is a big deception, money-racket.
    …it’s been a year now…endless lockdowns, masks, distancing, endless mandates, thousands of nursing home deaths due to neglectful policy, children out of school and falling behind in learning and life skills, teachers unions holding everybody hostage, the list goes on and on with no end in sight…now TWO f-ing masks.
