What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Without Music

And the Trump one was so much more awkward and uncomfortable than I thought possible since I thought Trump was already at his peak for that. My favourite element though and the thing that had me giggling was the PVC squeaking of Britney Spears and Gaga. So funny.
