Own It: If Trump Is The Nominee And Loses, Trump Supporters Are To Blame Not #NeverTrump
I’ve about had it with Trump supporters. They’re happy to tell you Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina and others just “weren’t good enough to win” and that any of their losses is completely their fault.

Today, with the well-being | Read More »
