The media, in their infinite Liberal bias, blasted the Republican who demanded the barricades taken down, while applauding Biden for commending the Ranger who kept those veterans out.
And people claim Obama, Biden, Democrats love Americans and American Military? LMFAO!!! Unfckingbelievable.
Obama is a fcking disgrace.
