More politicians need to do this.I'm watching a Turkish historical series called

Payitaht Abdulhamid II which is about the declining years of the Ottoman Empire leading into WWI.

The memes with the guy praying and the one that said there were no white people in the Bible were particularly effective. I didnít have the heart to send the meme with the old guy and the halftime show but that is him
