Now it’s no longer novel, so we’re not as easily to please. Really looking forward to your take on Grease Live. That is easily may favorite of the… Read more »

She supports Ukrainian Nazis look it up as well as Obamarama Islamicist kiss-ass spreader. By the way Beth why are you a “Democrat” if you were homeschooled all your life?

Lol omg we get it you hate trump! Jesus and why was beth acting like nazi supporters just started up when trump became preseident? Sadly there were some before he even started running. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like trump either, but whining about it throughout this video was annoying.
