Begin by telling the truth

He’s got to go

He’s on the air-waves, Trump, with his amateurish notions and his outright lies. Why does he want, demand, that schools open in September? It’s for his re-election prospects. He will strong-arm for what he wants; health science be damned. He, with craftily concerned (it’s called ...
