I fail to see why anybody should be worried by Trump's fast food binges. Frankly, they fill me with hope.

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

Are Republicans allowed to bang the popular vote drum? I thought that was only for Hillary supporters right now. It's a slutty drum. The only thing people can't seem to bang it against is a popular vote win, and I'm probably forgetting examples of that . Proprietary rights to the popular vote drum ...

Other news stories are saying he had the vials of atropine, but no syringe or auto-injector, so he would have had no way to use it.
