It‘s a lazy Sunday night in our household. I‘m binge-watching Designing Women on Hulu while #ChipmunkCat and #YetiCat keep me company. I didn‘t know there were so many Donald Trump references! (And a Marla Maples cameo) 😳😖🥺 #CatsofLitsy

Leftcoastzen Awwww😻😻 3d
MicheleinPhilly I was watching an old episode of Gilmore Girls recently and there was a Donald Trump reference. I visibly recoiled and then yelled “Stay out of Stars Hollow!” 🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d
Scochrane26 I watched golden girls a while back, & Dorothy slams trump in a comment in the jeopardy ep. It was funny. It‘s on YouTube. 3d

Hi, Littens! I need your help. I‘ve been looking for more of these (and the other ones I‘m missing, like the Read sign). We‘ve been to all the Targets around here and Tampa and nothing.

Could you check the dollar spot at your local Target and see if you find them for me? I‘ll reimburse you and pay for shipping. 🤞🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
