    Her lifting the restrictions just means that the school districts have the choice. The districts set the allowable size of the event. So as the commenter below put it, “Basically a big FU to the gov. “. Not at all.

    On Thursday, Reynolds told reporters the attack was unacceptable and that those responsible should be prosecuted. But she says it’s a concern that half of the electorate doesn’t believe the election results and that something should be done to address that.

    Reynolds has been a staunch advocate of President Donald Trump. She hasn’t criticized him for encouraging supporters before the attack, and she only acknowledged President-elect Joe Biden’s victory after Congress certified the electoral results.

    SHE STILL HAS HER HEAD BURIED IN TRUMPS ASS, SHOULD BE THE NEXT ONE TO GO
