What, specifically, are Trump's (alleged) crimes?
AIDS in the 1950's and 60's.


Has he denied it?

You've only seen the sequel(s)?


I've never seen a WW2 Holocaust tattoo, only WW 11.

Why is online dating, along with trying to meet someone in person, frustrating at times?
Why are some people not open or interested when it comes meeting new people?


Because the people you're trying to meet are not interested in meeting new people???

Now they want to ban the sale of pointed kitchen knives in the UK to reduce knife crime.
How do you suppose the Republican Party plans to survive, or even thrive, as demographics change?


My guess is they'll switch to brass knuckles.

Why are some people so insistent on wearing a hat?


Because they're patriotic. At least they're not all as big as the Large Sombrero Guy meme or the streets would get crowded quickly.
