  2. Biden is probably thinking, maybe this wasn’t a good idea, retirement, playing fetch with the dog wasn’t bad. Everyone wants something, the Kamala effect has worn off.

  3. Time to stop, enough is enough.

  4. Just identify as Asian. Problem solved.

  5. Duckworth may not have understood it while in Uniform; but she WASN’T blown up & injured bcz she was an “Asian” soldier; but bcz she was perceived as an AMERICAN soldier. Clearly, they perceived WRONG.

      This is a pitiful lame attack. May you find your way into the light : (

    • @Susie Bigelow how is it an attack? It’s the truth she was in the military as an American soldier, not an Asian woman. Facts my dear find the light!

    She said she would oppose all non white candidates until her demands were met and that it wasn’t a strange position to have. Hilarious show of outright racism promoted by the media. Just stop

  14. Backing off open racism. 😂

    Hmm racist hiring policies don’t seem to make much of a fuss anymore.

  16. “So woke you’re racist.”

    Explain how using race in any form in hiring decisions is not racist. Amazing.

    The joke is on them, as Hawaiians and Blacks in Illinois are exterminated with the Covid bioweapon vaccines. Karma comes quickly…
