Well, so much for compassion. I’m sick of this and so are you. That debate on Sunday was violating to all who watched. We don’t need to rehash it.

While the accusations come pouring in, Trump’s loony “surrogates” are screaming that the victims are all liars, and female journalists are fighting back tears. It reminds every woman of every man who didn’t take no for an answer.
I wish we could cancel the third debate! How much more can we stand? And who will pay for the therapy?
