So why does the governor not leave America and go to Mexico? He can point fingers there at those who speak against Americans. BTW: who does the governor think is paying for those rats?
Because there is nothing you can do about it but thump your keyboard fingers and write stupid stuff.

Opinions are a dime a dozen, we’re all entitled to them.
Likening human beings to parasites has been done before with other groups of people—Irish, Chinese, Italian, Native Americans, African Americans. The faces may change but the epithets stay the same. A case of been there, done that ~~~~~~~ redux.

Can’t apologize for something beyond my control, something I was not responsible for.

I’d rather try finding a solution to a problem. The name-calling, the need to degrade others, that’s best left to those who’ve allowed fear to rule their lives.

We don't need 'citizens' that are the offspring of CRIMINALS (as all illegals are)!

Sneaking across the border is as illegal and wrong as robbing a bank.

I don't attribute your comments to ignorance, maggot.

Covering your foreign criminal ass is a more likely explanation, followed by treason as a secondary possibility.

Either way, you're still vermin.

Ah yes, that OTHER worn out old card, second only to the race card as a last resort of simple-minded trash.

You don’t stray far from being a cliché, an old, worn out, predictable one at that.
“Maggot”,“vermin,”“simple-mind ed trash” all terms you frequently use from you trusty repertoire of insults.
But don’t you find them a little boring? Some of those terms are so commonplace. Why don’t I help you add a little pizzazz, interject a little bit of variety to your repertoire of insults.

Let’s see.... hmmmmmmm, instead of maggot” how about guano, replace “vermin” with scurrilous scalawag, and for “simple-minded trash” replace it with cretinous miscreant.

You’re welcome.
