Hi ImMrMeseeks LookAtMe All because she sucked off the right men at the right time

LOL wow the hypocrisy in the msm is astounding. Genuflect much asshoed press Even though she doesn't come from said indian village and didn't earn her position? Lines up for the nonstop dick sucking and pussy licking we'll get for the next 4 years. Looks like communist propaganda. No, seriously Thanks...just vomited in my mouth reading this fawning bullshit

Fawn more over the elites please. Lick their boots harder. This is what the people needs and wants over all else. Who needs food and healthcare if they can't praise their betters? Lol How do they feel about Kamala not acknowledging her Indian heritage until she was forced to? Wipe your chins. Not first woman of color... but, narrative, right? 😆
