    You know it’s not all of russia the new generation is happy with the lgbtq community.i know this is for fun but we are no longer communist. Or soviet... America needs to educate itself. At least we don’t have school shootings.. our schools are safe and our people are smart. Yes we have anti lgbtq community violence but honestly which country doesn’t

    The alphabet people(LGBTQ..... community wants equality yet a whole month is dedicated to them because of they sexual and personal preferences I have nothing against the LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈 community but I just don’t get why a month should be PRIDE MONTH PLUS WHY THEY NEED TO HAVE PRIDE WEEK WHERE everything has be about them. The isn’t a month for ‘straight’ folks why should there be for them.

    I notice Trevor's audience patterns. Rarely applauds if he mention successful black celebrities wealth, small claps here & there for jabs at certain political figures/celebrities, but loud cheers & clapping when he exaggerate false claims by Michael Jackson, R-Kelly (current ones not past offenses) and so on. I see y'all.

    But it’s ok to try to censor a British newspaper printing a story about him and his gay lover splitting after adopting kids. Such a double standard smh

    Oh god, the amount of fake ass kissing this bloke does in this video is embarrassing. He’s not funny at all. Blimey. The bit where he’s sucking off that gay bloke for having a nice body and it’s clear that man has never been in a gym in his life. Even my hero Elton John, would detest this homephilic ass kissing. Fake guy, pandering.

    I actually watched Ashton Kutcher's speech when it came out, and it's actually a really good one, and was widely shared on the internet. The target audience was teens which fits with a high school graduation, but doesn't mean it's ok to steal of course 😅 and surely a high school principal should be capable of writing a speech

    Hey!....HEY! Ashton is a HERO!!! For real for real! He’s worked WONDERS in his drive to fight sex trafficking! In regards toRihanna’s name, people have always HEARD her say it like, “red-Anna”, but we all just assumed it was due to her accent. She’s not that big a part of my life on a day to day basis so it’s likely I’ll STILL just call her RIHANNA. 🤣 She’ll never know. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Plus, I think the “wrong” way sounds better, imo.

    Hi Trevor, you got it wrong. The "magic dildos" we have on the Red Square is a secret Soviet-era weapon designed to use on The Pentagon building, whatever bodily opening of yet... Virginia it represents:)
