LOL what mental health..I think by them freaking out like this over an ELECTION shows they are LOW LIFE LOSERS
The media are a herd of cats and Twitter is President Trump’s laser pointer!

Thanks to the divorce/cohabitation/pothead regime started by my fellow Baby Boomers.
Tough Shiite, pussays...

Sure, that works.
Thus confirming why they're called "Snowflakes"
