Eleven presidential campaigns with no one crying about rigged elections. Then came Trump

Brothers and Sisters of the Resistance, Melania Trump is not the Enemy
Melania Trump has drawn the ire of the Liberal universe in a way that is totally disproportionate with anything that you can possibly accuse her of doing. The name calling is shameful and embarrassing. Michelle Obama is one the most beloved first ladies since Jackie Kennedy.  She’s smart, articulate and passionate in her beliefs and... Read more »
