  • Crickets mighty quiet out there today. Sarge, kuroiwaj, lespark, moilee, thos, blueyedevil, where are you. There will be a long line of Chumps suppoters seeking therapy after the election. Most of them should have had therapy a long time ago.

  • Both sides has their problems but Trump supporters will pretend that this newsworthy finding does not exist. In fact, they will deflect this whole story by talking about how the election is rigged.
