Nobody Called Anyone An Ignorant Slut

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Salvador Dalí The discovery of America by Christopher Columbus 1959   Let’s get one thing straight: Donald Trump is as American as apple pie (even if both are imports). He’s brash and loud and abrasive and entirely focused on money, he’s given to exaggeration, he stretches the truth, he constantly seeks to appear bigger and richer than he really is; he ticks all the boxes of what it is to be American.
