I don't want politics mixed in with my medical decisions. And when all of our news sources for Covid information have an agenda to spin us, you wind up with a badly misinformed population. #BreakingNews #ScaredStraight
The Russia sanctions confirm what we've long known: Trump’s campaign chairman shared internal polling data and strategy with Konstantin Kilimnik - who shared it with Russian intelligence. While Russia was helping Trump’s campaign. So much for the “no collusion” crowd.
