I am not kidding. We need UN election observers in Georgia...the state, not the country.

If you thought you wouldn't live long enough to hear a president mock a guy going thru chemo for brain cancer, congratulations. You made it.

If you’re using more airtime on Jussie Smollett than on Christopher Hasson, you’re doing TV very wrong.
