“I don’t know what Jumaane Williams stands for,” Gotlieb said. “No, I don’t think so.” [he’s here in good faith] because it contradicts the first amendment, it protests against freedom of speech, and you shut down someone who claimed to have given money to Daniel Storm, when Michael Cohen was doing the whole thing.
Meanwhile, Karen Irwan, 47, said Hell’s Kitchen showed up to celebrate Trump’s announcement.
“Be careful, we have fascism out there,” Irwan said of the pro-Trump rally, adding, “We’re celebrating the first moment in my life that our justice system seems to be trying to apply to people as well as people.” power It means that they can now pretend to have a democracy and start doing things like they do now.
