  1. FAKE NEWS! This terrorist attack could of never happened. Pretty boy Chris Wray, the new puppet leading the CORRUPT FBI, just told us last week, that the FBI is very busy keeping us safe from terrorism! The FBI is controlled by the DNC and their only job is to bring down every Republican politician and protect every Democrat politician! When they have some free time, their job is to go after Orthodox Jews. After that, their job is to cook up hate crimes against evil white racist heterosexual males. The FBI must be disbanded.
