GOP Right Boobs of the Week – Which One’s the Hole in the Ground? Edition

by @SueInRockville and Milt Shook This has been a banner week for the Trump-led Republican Party. The week started with a tragic loss, which created a virtual vortex in the Republican ideology because it forced them to confront three issues … Continue reading
