Thematically there will be the same contradictory elements: freedom of religion only for specific religions, carnage is here because it’s been manufactured, the stock market is the economy, the other side is subversive even as we’re trying to pervert the rule of law and sabotage the election. And mainly, ignore...

Thanks to Donald Trump’s sweeping “America Worst” policy, we’ve become a world pariah in many ways. And now Americans may be barred from traveling to Europe as it reopens its borders in the wake of COVID-19.
