    Gotta be amazed at how the rotten fruit and feces just slide off the limo and don’t even leave a mark.

    Sondra, I don’t think that’s Malia. It looks like the Supreme Mooch, Michelle’s mother, yannow, the deadbeat who lives in luxury at the White House on our dime. Since when did adult family members of the first couple rate a free ride?
    Oh, I know. She pays room and board, probably at the rate of the government travel per diem. Just like Pelosi’s pigs rode ultra first class on AF 3 for coach fare reimbursement.
    Bitchez.

    WTF!
