Trump Watch August 24 2017

Day 208:

Don’t Stop Fighting!:

When your enemy is on the ropes, that is exactly the moment when you punch them in the fucking face. Trump and his ilk are a mess, now is the time to bring out the progressive policies.

We run on them, we win on them, we implement them.

Trump has woken up a lot of people, just ask yourself this, if Hillary was president would be we be taking down all these confederate monuments right now? Would all these people be in the streets? Would this revolution have happened?
