To the [Too Many] Women Who Voted For Trump: You Broke My Heart

Winners and Losers in Last Night’s Debate

I woke up this morning with a massive debate hangover. So for a little tail of the dog I compiled this list of winners and losers in the second Presidential Debate.

  4. Neener neener.
  5. Mommy! She’s being mean to me!

Lord help us.
