@DineshDSouza Ask Ernst Rohm about thatIt would be too bad to not remember that and I'm happy you called it to mind. I remember thinking, "what a drip." https://t.co/4NkE2KHgfyMy sources say that @RepTomEmmer is eager to hear your views on his accepting money from NRA. He's standing by at (202)225-2332 #bloodmoney @_LAZERBEAK_ I heard you were all over moves like Jagger and have a crush on the one with the beard? But maybe my sources were fucked up?Thank you @rosannecash for speaking out. Be nice to get such realness from some of our elected officials.
