Re: Politics & Current Events

I know we're beyond the point where analysis of Trump & his army of idiots is repetitive, but I'm just struck by how closely this thread tracks w/ a conversation I had at a house party recently. Nichols is one of those #nevertrump'ers who sometimes annoys me because of his attempts at excusing ...

That’s funny but there is something really psychologically going on with Trump. He has frequently been taped moving bottles around when he sits down at tables. It’s like an OCD ritual.
