The Dawn Of Trump's America


I won’t always be writing about the: Cheeto-In-Cheif, but I did want to post this film because this is what the core of Trump’s America consists of.  Don’t kid yourself, this is no small faction.  This is the core and Kelly Ann Conway’s double talk on TV, her “alternative facts” and Dan Spicer’s outright LIES as they are commonly referred to are nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
