I feel very bad for Mse Garza’s loss, and I mean her no ill will, but at the end of the interview she stated how surprised she was with the attitudes of the RussoFascist senators. Really? I doubt there is a dozen of the 80 million who voted for Biden, who would be surprised. How can anyone be so out of touch with reality. Are people really that blind.
