      Play class based games win collapsing prizes. Maybe ask your wealthy ballywood and oligarchs to chip in… ohhh wait the money will be worthless soon just like in the 80s and 90’s. Best of luck. My suggestion dont try to be like the people who conquered you.

  3. 🇺🇸 ACB 🇺🇸

  4. The Democrats have nothing she’s absolutely crushing it

  5. Kon kon india se hy🙏🙌♥️🥰

  6. Teach your kids to comply with the police and there’s a 99% chance the floyd incident won’t happen to your kids, black, white, yellow, blue, do what they say and hash it out in court. Agree or not it’s the truth!

  7. She has the ultimate “I cant be raciest ” come back ” But I have two black kids”. If you understand what I’m saying, you know its just like every woman beater has a mother; but will excuse themselves to beat any other women. Sen. Whitehouse made everything clear, shes a political pawn and tool regardless what she thinks.

    • And that statement makes you profoundly stupid

    • but the question doesn’t demand a racial card to be pulled. She omitting that she has 2 adopted black kids would lead to confusion and fools like you saying “what does she know about hatred she and her kids have white privilege.”

      She mentioned the fact to eliminate any confusion. While typical ignorant and incomprehensive fools like you take any chance to spin a narrative.

    • The prodigy of the one judge who will stop at nothing to make laws her very children could be effected by 10-20yrs from now, but she’s is not willing to say this is her views during this hearing. That alone should tell us a lot about her.

  8. Republican senators ask about the legal process and the role of the supreme court. Democrats ask about policy support. If this is how Democrats view the role of the supreme court everyone should be wary of them ever being able to nominate another supreme court justice.

  9. Can send this illegal home too. The law.

    “ACB : ” as and owner, I mean “parent ” of two children this will effect, it was hard to explain how my ideology which helped oppress them would be their savior. Dont worry though, all Americans will be under corpate control soon enough.”

    If you were going to accurately cite George Floyd youd have to snort meth, use counterfeit money, use fentanyl, theft, aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, and possession of cocaine. Cite that while your at it.

  12. ALL cops are awesome! Floyd was guilty! Officer Chauvin is awesome and innocent! EVERYONE killed by the police is guilty! Floyd doesn’t need justice.

  13. This isn’t journalism. This is so bizarre.

  14. Her kids haven’t seen racism because it’s very rare. George Floyd wasn’t because of racism. The officers actually were very cordial with him given his behavior. George asked to be taken out of the police car and put in the ground and so they did. There will need to be more training on what to do at that point with suspects they suspect are under the influence and experiencing excited delirium. The other two people with George complied and walked away from the scene. The cops were there because of a call from the store they were patrons.

  15. From what I have learned by reading and watching, I would not say racism played a part in the demise of Floyd. His lifestyle played a definite role. It would, however, benefit everyone if officers were more attuned to true medical distress when apprehending. But being able to distinquish between real or pretended distress is problematic at best.
