Jackson and Basura 9:17:2020

He’s a great kid, to me at this age; they’re all kids. He looks at life with a gentle heart. He wants to travel after High School, wants to feel the world. He wants to make a difference. Basura Cat knows my students, a great judge of character. For some…

Trump And His Mistress ~ America 9/9/2020

He Knew...it's on tape, undeniable, irrefutable...He Knew. It's the worst relationship of my life, the one with him.
