I know lots of folks have some issues with anything that comes from old white men.
I'll say this:
The Romans offered bread and circuses to their dupes and dedicated followers.
Today's republicans tax your bread to help out corporate CEOs and offer only circuses. So were the Romans better than today's republicans?

Twenty years ago I knew trump only as just another rich guy. I know now he's always been such an awful man, the embodiment of the quote, "You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth?"
