Crab lives matter!


OMG! What the heck is he going to do with all those crabs? I’m sure NO one will buy those! He didnt even pack them in ice?

Unless he stole them to set them free?? Then he will have the “Save the Crabs” group protest outside the courthouse during his trial. This could go Nation wide!!


I think we need a March for social justice. Defund the commercial fishermen! It’s all Trump’s fault!


Of course it is!! Shame! HE only gave even $ stimulus for hamburger when they really wanted surf&Turf! Shame!
