Happy Birthday, Mr. President

on June 13, 2019, 10:55 AM / in National News, Opinion

 by streiff  |  Red State So far the media has managed to avert its eyes and studiously ignore a major story of corruption and malfeasance in Congress because to cover said story would totally destroy a narrative and expose them to allegations that they are racist.
