    Quite an impressive list!

    The public must become aware of what happens to friends of the Clintonsy or do anything to get what it wants. we need to add the 4 DEAD AMERICANS IN BENGHAZI TO THIS LIST.

  15. Amazing to the Bush's, Clinton's and Obama's with genuine affection for each other. We need more of that spirt now.

  16. Bill Clinton how was the Island ?

  17. Epstein's island regular attendee 🤥😅

  18. What people fail to understand that story about how he almost got killed that same person had kids and raised his kids to have the same beliefs, and it's passed down from generation to generation neverending cycle of hate and anger towards someone who doesn't look like them. Things would never get better in America until we come together and discussed the issue at hand and find a solution to fix it.

  19. Beautiful tribute and encouragement. Rest in Peace John Lewis. Thank you for all you did to make this country a better place.

  20. How many of the gutless GOP and their families, will want Trump to give the eulogy at their funerals?

  21. Apparently everyone has forgotten that Slick Willy was a member of a whites only country club..

  22. This is great to see!
    Just think, who will ever, in their right mind, ever give such eloquent eulogies to that orange turd Trump! Hahahah, that will be icing on the cake when he (Trump) is shut out, an empty church!!
