Yes, this (now former) Facebook friend threatened to murder super delegates My father was a man whose default setting was bitter and his temper, when he lost it completely, was hot-fire explosive. Growing up in his household was not fun, as you might imagine. One thing I learned about my dad early in life, out […]

Sanders supporters continue to make the incredible claim that Clinton “stole” Arizona primary
