Pitch another softball

I’m breaking up with you Today Explained, can no longer handle the ridiculousness. Did you forget to ask Marianne Williamson about the collective violence in Portland and Seattle which has been going on for months? Does it not qualify as domestic terrorism? Please help me to understand how this has continued. Oh I know why- maybe because the far left calls it a protest. Biden and Harris are no better than Trump. They are all narcissistic liars. They are better at hiding it after their many years of practice in politics.
