Re: TRI NATIONS 2020 R5: Pumas v All Blacks MATCH THREAD: Nov 28, 08:45 GMT

Re: The enormity of the Democrats' US Election crime

The Orange Roughy inflicted mortal damage to his campaign by insisting that postal voting was a security risk. Turned off Republicans and encoured Democrats to post their vote. Much like like what Don and Melania did. Too funny.
