Stumping for Trump

Yesterday I posted a video clip of Sarah Palin and Wayne Allyn Root discussing The Donald’s bid to be the GOP’s candidate for President in 2016. Although I agreed with Palin and Root’s reasoning on Trump’s success in the polls, some of you took my post to mean I am behind Trump for President. […]
