shame on you Chris for giving a platform to his lies. I hope you took a shower after. he is one of the most vile people in the world. like his latest where he compared his family being outed for their many crimes to soldiers who died in the line of duty. on veterans day weekend. when we honor these people for their service to our country. always remember our country is the most important. not the trump crime family
