Collusion & The Rise of ChristiaNationalist Morality

Each day I hear someone ask the question “what is the stepping off point for the Republican Party?” How long will they look the other way as Trump lies, violates the rule of law and ignores the constitution?

Progressive Regression – Lies We Tell Ourselves About The Lies We Told Others
