"Am I the only one who thinks the 7 jurors chosen thus far sound totally in the tank for Trump? The guy from Puerto Rico [View all]

I really have not been listening to much of this jury selection but thought interesting.

Am I the only one who thinks the 7 jurors chosen thus far sound totally in the tank for Trump? The guy from Puerto Rico thinks Trump is "fascinating and mysterious" and the guy born in Ireland who has already been designated foreperson (how?) the same. The teacher says she thinks Trump "speaks his mind" and "that's what you want." This all sounds very MAGA.
