    How is the politician(Warren) the funny charismatic one while the "Comedian"(McKinnon) cant seem to even crack a single half decent joke? SNL, where the source material contains more humour than the parody.

    Also, respect to Ellen. She refuses to hate people even if that turns peoples hate on her. That is the sign of an admirable human being and a strong moral character.

    Democrats are proving don't know what their doing but can say this. Dems are doing nothing and getting paid easy big money for it. Taxpayers money to convict an innocent man. To brand guilty a Great president. Dems are working against taxpayers. The American people that love him. What a president this sets.
    1 No evidence needed just Democrats saying your guilty. Examples You "driving while black" your guilty or your "walking while black your guilty it's called Stop and Frisk. It helps white and black Democratic lawyers with billable hours. Democratic lawyers are criminal, example, Kamala Harris that put innocent black people in jail and kept them in longer then their sentence. Black politicians are for them selves and take advantage of black people. Look at Obama never did a thing for black people. He, they don't even think Blacks have IDs or know where the DMV is. If Adam Schiff Jerry Nadler or Nancy Pelosi saids you are guilty you are no trial needed. These are Democratic policies. Blacks wake up or you make black lives matters take 100 steps backwards. Democrats are racist dont want Blacks to work obvious and want blacks guilty no evidence or trial needed so obvious Democrats should of been put in jail for fighting for slavery.
    This is a bad point of law to have on books.
    Democrats actually know what their doing. To manipulate the 2020 election with lies to manipulate the ignorent uninformed putty mind voters.

    I could care less about the marriage between one man and one woman or two women or two men. None of those make you a bad person. But there's only two genders and a number of made up genders. There's only a p*nis and a v*gina and if you don't have a period you are not a woman and if you don't have sp*rm you are not a man. Men cannot breast feed or give birth. So there's only two genders just like we were created from the beginning. The creation of different genders are because they're trying to claim there's no god and running with it and planting their seeds with their brain washed ignorant voters.

    Being gay is sin. Leaders over at GLADD are trying to twist the bible an say Gay isnt sin n say "God loves you just like you are" . No. The truth hurts and helļ hurts even more if you do not repent. Pray you the best but twisting the bible doesnt fly these days. If you die gay you will burn gay.

    The story reminds me an old Eastern block joke. Call to Radio Jerevan: "Is it true, Ivan Ivanovich from Moscow won a car?" Answer: "It is true, but it was not in Moscow but in Leningrad, it was not a car but a bicycle and he didn't win it but it was stolen from him..."

      Except, Ellen is a gatekeeper, and she works for the deep state, and so do the Clinton's and the Bush's. It really doesn't matter what they call themselves, it is a big club and you ain't in it. She does not extend the same cutesy to Trump, because Trump is not in the club.

      .@CCLGamer "Deep State" who?
      The very same one who ensures America's "National Security" by strip-searching random people in the batches of CPB and TSA( is that also the "Deep State" that allows the latter, responsible for "boarding the plane"/"leaving the country" folks; to get far more bad rep than the former, which has been given the appearance as if harmless - in fact, when they're the ones nurturing the bad-rep of Uncle Sam almost single-handedly)??
      The very same one who has occupied a part of "enemy territory[ on [UNILATERAL] lease]" to run a mega prison-camp over there, so that the random world-citizen it abducts never face the light of Justice and die their slow-deaths over there? And hence, trumpeting their "Land of the Free" jingle???
