Sue Carswell

We need you Oprah. Women are being grabbed by their pussies and you've chosen to stay quiet and sit by the side. Too much is at stake here for you to be so silent. Womankind is being attacked; the very women you taught us to become through your TV show, through your choice of what we should read, and by your soulful messages on OWN.

Paul Stoller | Posted 01.18.2017 | Politics
Paul Stoller

In his Big Man discourse, Mr. Trump says that no one else can do what he can do. He offers no specifics about how he will fix the world and "make America great again."
