Senate Indictment Doesn’t Stick to Teflon Don— Again

Before I start my rant about the Saturday vote to acquit Donald Trump, I believe the defense team’s creative method of distraction on Friday merits mention. The following people were randomly brought into the defense team's argument: Madonna, Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, ANTIFA, and of course Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton. Très bizarre. Democrats … Continue reading Senate Indictment Doesn’t Stick to Teflon Don— Again
