He's making an example out of her, to scare the rest of the Repubs of how he'll treat them if they don't stay on their knees and fellate him 100% of the time. I don't see why this tactic even works, but somehow it does.

Re: NFL Off-season 2020

I don’t know nearly enough about hockey to compare Gretzky to modern guys like Crosby or Ovechkin. However, the best sports example I can think of for “untouchable stats due to his era but not the best ever” is Wilt Chamberlain. No one will ever average 50 ppg again or touch his rebounding stats, b...
