Donald Trump is a Prophet!

Gallups: UN Will Speed Up Global Takeover in Response to Trump

I find conspiracy theories about the United Nations highly amusing. The right wing has spun one ridiculous prediction after another since its formation, none of them ever coming true.

Konstantin Kilibarda and Daria Roithmayr have an article at Slate arguing that the narrative of Trump winning the all-important votes of the blue collar white working class in the rust belt states is false.

Reince Priebus, like everyone who works for Donald Trump, is continually forced to defend the stupid, horrifying or dishonest things he says.
