“B-but MAGAman,” he says, “orange man has done some pretty unrad things. Here’s a list.” I cut him off. After being cucked for the 5th consecutive time this week, the libtard is clearly delusional. When he hands me the list, I crumple it into a paper ball and eat it. He stares into my eyes the entire time, and he is too petrified to look away. Putting my mouth to his ear, I whisper, “shut up libtard, facts don’t care about your feelings.”
