McSally announces Senate bid, fails to condemn Trump’s racism, still wants you to think she’s cool

Saudi Arabia is the model for the American Right

1. Trump Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is VERY IMPRESSED there were no protests during Trump's trip to Saudi Arabia https://t.co/IsiFBQRRdK — Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) May 22, 2017 Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross is taking a lot of ribbing for what seems to be a willfully obtuse observation about the lack of protests of Trump’s visit […]
