Guess they found out both men and women Trump supporters eat hot dogs and bacon.
Makes me want to kill more pigs.
My wife is an excellent nurse, and she makes sure that I don't turn into a maniac. She buys the following from Costco and keeps an opened package in our refrigerator in case either of us has signs of bacon withdrawal.
This great product is used on salads, in soups, in omelets, and just as a handful of goodness to prevent bacon withdrawal.
I’d wager that Scott Berson (author) is a vegetarian/vegan.
