Does this now constitute "brandishing a weapon"?

Not victims are “alleged” too? Vince Foster, alleged victim. But then, what difference does it make at this point IN TIME?!

Are these allegations of victimhood worth pursuit?

Should the alleged victim form a PAC to lobby candidates?

Is that really a picture of the “alleged” president? If so, where’s the fly? They must have photshopped it out.

How can they be so sure his hand wasn’t an assault handgun? Well I guess it technically was a hand gun! BWAHAHAHAHAHA

It had to be an assault hand gun.

I think his finger did have a bayonet mount and certainly a flash hider. And nearly everyone has a foldable stock for their trigger finger. And, my finger can fire thousands of rounds a second for hours! Even when I was a kid. So, I would imagine his could, too.

Verdict: assault finger/hand gun.
