We can make this case anywhere along the course of Mitch’s career, but let’s start in January 2009, when he announced that his sole purpose for the following four years... Read more »

Little Donnie put his reelection and Trump Towers in Turkey ahead of the safety and security of every American citizen.  Is that bad?
According to Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), a man who allowed the team doctor at Ohio State University to sexually abuse wrestlers, Donnie is doing a great job. Anyone who’s ever fact checked my writing though, knows that you can trust me when I say he is lying. Bigly. Donnie called Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and... Read more »
