Outstanding. Different. Might appeal to those tempted to vote for Trump. Well done Virginia. Have you thought of writing an autobiography? Or an account of Trumpcast and how you came to join it?

Really enjoyed that analogous way of looking at our troubled times. Well done.

I'm at the 34 minute mark. I'm distracted by the anxiety I've felt since VH mentioned that all 12 jurors are "white" men. I'm anxiously wondering "what color is the accused?" and "what color is the judge?" and "why did she mention they were white?"
