    I don’t know if they are horo or straight, but they are definitely trolls. Bigozine comment section has become troll-infected and i don’t know why no-one does something to stop this bullshit.

  7. Derrick, anti , Nelson , CNN fires talk show host Cris Homo Cuomo over his role in helping his brother Andrew beat the harassment charges against him .

    By HHH on Dec 5, 2021

  8. Supposedly Cris was digging up dirt on the accusers and turning it over to Andrew and his lawyers . Actually to me Cuomo was the one anchor I could stomach at holier than thou cnn . Don Lemonhead is the worst . Lemonhead has his own legal issues. Supposedly he assaulted a man in a gay bar by jerking off and rubbing his hand in the guys face . Yet Lemonhead is still on the air . CNN talking heads are all mouthpieces for the George Soros destroy America agenda .

    By HHH on Dec 5, 2021

  9. In fairness to the Cuomos , these days if you want to wreck someone’s career and life, just bring on and play the SX card .pay off multiple whores and sluts to say they were fondled 20 years ago and presto , life and career ruined . Me too is alive and well in the 21st century.

    By HHH on Dec 5, 2021

  10. Triple, you are always on about Lemonhead when you know that it was you that he assaulted. Stop bragging about it .

    By DD on Dec 5, 2021

  11. Also triple, I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned the Crumbles .

    By DD on Dec 5, 2021

  12. Nice try with the name stealing Hebrew Mark .im sure that wasn’t dd / anti

    By HHH on Dec 6, 2021

  13. I never thought Cuomo was a Homo . Live and learn . I knew Lemon was a faggott .

    By T J on Dec 6, 2021

  14. tj , Cris Cuomo was always telling Lemon how much he loves him at the end of his show , before the little nigger fag started his . Sounds Homo to me .

    By Nelson on Dec 6, 2021

  15. Believe me, I know a gay when I see one. I’m gay myself.

    By Nelson on Dec 6, 2021

  16. He might be my dad, Mom fucked a LOT of guys who looked like him.

    By DD on Dec 6, 2021

  17. Mom played his skin flute a LOT, I bet.

    By DD on Dec 6, 2021

  18. I ate more of my shit for breakfast.

    I mixed in some fresh bacon bits and Montreal Steak seasoning, flattened it like a burger, then pan fried it with a light char on each side.

    I melted a cheese slice on it, then added a tomato slice, and topped it off with a fried egg, sunny side up.

    It was tasty but a bit dry, like a veggie burger. BBQ sauce would probably help some, or maybe even gravy.

    By HHH on Dec 6, 2021

  19. I beat off emotionlessly……. sigh…….

    By Derrick on Dec 6, 2021

  20. Take your meds Mark . You’re losing it .

    By HHH on Dec 6, 2021
