Donald Trump our new Czar, the political ISIS of American politics, the one who beheaded more than a dozen career politicians on national TV during GOP debates. In his crusade against Muslims and Islam, the leader of the civilized world, replacing the leader of the free world, called for “a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
As he is now running the country, he came up with an unhinged, uncooked Executive Order to ban people from seven countries with a majority Muslim population.

His erratic orders have caused huge chaos and disruption to thousands of families in our communities, but how though will this Muslim ban affect my gastronomy in America?!

What Donald Trump phenomenon says about GOP and America!!


My interview with political consultant Bob Meek

How Donald Trump stole the election and America , my conversation with Political consultant Bob Meek,,

Supporters of the likely GOP nominee have been punching, kicking, choking, and harassing people at his events and in his name since he launched his campaign. It’s not surprising when he entered the presidential race by comparing Mexicans to rapists and criminals, and has since insulted women, disparaged Muslims and immigrants, and threatened violence against Black Lives Matter activists and other protesters.
