Taste The Rainbow

Taste The Rainbow

Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail.  While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy...

Breaking News…

Update: Madame Hillary weighs in.  The President still has no plans for his administration to actually enforce the law.
