That Should Do it


I was on a plane when I received a text from a buddy:

"See the Trump news today?"

"This one's a doozy."

"That's horrible," I texted my buddy.

"Despicable," he answered.

I stopped short of saying deplorable.

But I'm disgusted.

...God help you.

Don't preach Christianity to me...

...that's for sure.
