How can any woman be so stupid!

As I listened to this podcast, I just couldn’t believe how such a seemingly smart business woman could actually be this dumb! And to put her family through hell because of Dirty John. All because she said she loved him! She’s got to be the dumbest woman in America!! And shame on her after her family tried over and over again to warn her!
