For reasons that are difficult to understand, Garry turned on Trump's daily "briefing" on the Coronavirus. Now, we both know our so-called president does not have a good grip on English, but this evening was special. After a couple of sentences, I realized he wasn't making any sense. If he were a doper, I'd have … Continue reading DONALD TRUMP GETS CONFUSED BETWEEN TOM BRADY AND CORONAVIRUS – DA NOOZE
IT’S PERSONAL. TIME FOR A ‘GIVE ME FREEDOM FROM TRUMP’ MOMENT WRITTEN BY MACINELLI As an old-school journalist — just the facts please — and a descendant of Revolutionary War-era orator extraordinaire Patrick Henry (I’m related to one of his brothers, not the man himself), I accepted an invitation by the founder of The Shinbone Star to … Continue reading IT’S NOW PERSONAL.
