Don't worry about me, my eyes are wide open. These eyes are enjoying you libtards freak out about anything and everything pertaining to Trump. Especialy, when it exposes your own hypocrisy.

I will admit the childish nature of recieving joy out of your pain......but I don't give a fck, I still enjoy it........
