googling an idiot

The GOP, in case it isn’t apparent, is offended. That bitter mob of aged white dudes in DC has taken great umbrage to the fact their beloved President, Sideshow Don, is widely considered an idiot. However, this same Republican party regularly goes to great lengths to vilify and demonize, disenfranchise and marginalize us, the 99%, casting … Continue reading googling an idiot
