I went to the drugstore to buy a box of Claritin-D 24. I can’t say I’m miserable during allergy season, but my runny nose is annoying. The pharmacist asked me if I would like the generic version of Claritin which was less than half the price. She said it was the same drug with the same effects. “Why the difference in cost?” I asked, knowing the answer. “They don’t advertise,” she said.

Taylor Swift pressed sexual assault charges against DJ David Mueller who groped her at a photo shoot.

This is, of course, another one of trump’s brilliant ploys to keep his hypocritical hater posse, his base, happy. How do you keep a bunch of racist, frightened, ignorant so-called “good Christians” happy? Give them something while giving them nothing.
The fake president sets up the termination of DACA so he can blame congress for killing it or keeping it, whatever they decide. Take the wall. It’s not trump’s fault the United States Congress won’t approve it. He wants it. He
