If bigotry is a crime in America, Dr. Alma Lynch will be doing hard time behind bars. While she was running for election to the U.S. House to represent Texas' 23rd Congressional District, the Republican candidate suggested that spraying the nation with pig's blood would keep Muslims out of the US. What planet does this doctor live on? This is the most ludicrous anti-Muslim suggestion I heard!

While Democrats have been too tangled-up wasting their time, talent and treasure trying unsuccessfully to remove the president from office, he’s been busy working for the American people. He’s been happily dancing the two-step. The two-step is a partner dance, consisting of a “leader” and a “follower.” President Trump is the leader of the free-world and the rest of the world is closely-watching, taking-note and following in his foot-steps.
