The current frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination spoke on the USS Yorktown this week, saying 70 to 75 percent of the media are "absolute scum."
Hirsute sweet potato and not-at-all-fake presidential candidate Donald Trump stopped off in Charleston this week for the standard sort of "whites only" rally America has come to love him for. There were #BlackLivesMatter representatives in attendance, though not for long, who were summarily ushered out by police to the vociferous glee of Trumpsters and Trumpettes alike.
Earlier in the day, The Donald had released a new and frankly horrifying statement regarding the non-place of Muslims on American soil, a wonderful bit of neo-fascism dressed up as due diligence if ever there were.

Just FYI, Donald. One certainly expects a full apology when you return to Chucktown for the Republican debate in January.
