  1. Ah…so, that’s where the US secret service dumped the Bidens’ stash of drugs, which was recently discovered in the White House!

    The stash would have lasted for two months between them: Half for Hunter Biden’s recreational use; and half for Joe Biden to appear awake for masking his current pre-death comatose state!

  2. Theyin the Caribbean sea after cocaine but in the white house have more coke heads
