Mocking Middle America

Needless to say, Washington’s media elites did not care for the president’s Tampa, Florida speech.  CNN’s Jim Acosta was “triggered” by Trump’s remarks, and he tweeted this: “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow […]
