Comrade Trump

Trump was right when he said the he could kill someone on 5th avenue and not lose a single vote. That’s because a large minority of Americans would be happy living under fascism (while claiming to be patriots). These knuckle-dragging trump monkeys have an excuse for all his lies, crimes and scandals. God help America.
