THERE IS NO WAY to avoid sounding like a Donald Trump supporter with this column. I've already been accused of going over to the dark side by defending The Donald against accusations that he wanted to imprison women who had abortions, and that he cheered
IT'S NO SECRET I detest Donald Trump. I don't particularly hate the man, because it takes too much energy and effort to become enraged at people I don't know personally and will likely never meet, when more than enough humans are in my immediate orbit who fit the bill.
