Michigan MAGAs burn their own absentee ballot applications to own the libs

I have to admit, this is a strategy that never occurred to me: burning your own absentee ballot application to protest too much voting by the other side. This should become a national movement. Show them what you’re made of, Trump fans. You’re no fools! So, yeah, Grand Rapids, Michigan, MAGAs were apparently sent into a rage over…

Will Bernie Suspend After Next Tuesday?
