Disfunction Junction

Are people really surprised by what’s happening in this country now? Mass shootings, terrorizing minorities and immigrants, death threats against actors for being in movies; that’s apparently who we are now.

At that time, he was one of sixteen Republican candidates, most of whom had better qualifications, organizations, and support from the party than him. Now, he's the Republican nominee and … Continue reading Trumpland Trumpland Uber Alles
