Trump is going to lose the election. And Trump will make us pay. (HINT: It’s Trump’s Version of Hitler’s “scorched earth” Policy) Here’s How to Stop Him Taking Revenge on America

Netanyahu and the Boehner-enabled end-run around the American commander in chief might as well be advertised like this: A Great Day For Anti-Semites Everywhere!
