Trump Is NOT Banning TikTok Because This Comedy Is TOO GOOD TO BAN!!

Okay, TikTok not getting banned has less to do with its comedy and more to do with politics and money - BUT I’M SO HAPPY THE APP IS HERE TO STAY SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO WATCH THESE CREATORS SUCCEED Not to start off on a totally dark note, but I wish Trump cared as much about the pandemic as he does about TikTok.
