  1. Cory Booker is such a disgrace. That’s why he’s struck from my list. I have no patience for his a*ss kissing.

    I have the post about the Chicago Election all prepared. I’ll put it in the dashboard for tomorrow when I get home. I gotta admit…I was sort of calm, but, as it gets closer to the closing of the polls, I’m getting excited!

  3. The disgraced bum in our Oval Office is afraid of the Mueller report being released. Boo, mofo! The public will see that report.
