Y'all make me sick

Y’all as in President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, along with their crews of genius political consultants, cowards who won’t abide compromise and the ideologically impaired whose  tantrums echo across the land when they don’t get their way. The issue, of course, is immigration. From both sides, it’s compromise and moderation be damned. Even worse, it’s both... Read more »
