Donald Trump lives in the tallest, most luxurious towers, which enables him to see things most commoners can’t. On September 11, 2001, he bore witness as a massive mob gathered in New Jersey to celebrated the terrorist attacks, which Mr. Trump correctly predicted. The poorly managed, money-losing media conglomerates that cower in fear at the thought of a Trump presidency have refused to acknowledge this celebration took place. Anti-truth zealots will do anything to damage the credibility of a noble billionaire who tells it like it is.

A couple of things to remember before engaging in any argument with an apologist for the Republic:
Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for publishing my column. I’m a big fan of this holiday because few things are more American than boozing up and chowing down ’til your ankles swell and your corduroys pop. In between, you get to watch some football and share your thoughts on the trainwreck presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (hint hint).
It’s that wonderful time of the year when studios send screeners to critics in an effort to boost a movie’s chances of winding up in the discussion for end-of-year awards/best-of lists.

One of the most traumatizing things a human being has ever had to endure is sitting at a table with family members and listening to opinions he disagrees with. Sonny Bunch has written a helpful guide for how to survive this excruciating scenario. Hopefully it never happens to you.
