Trump is going to need bigger hands for all this blood. If a girl can be convicted for sending texts encouraging a boy to commit suicide, surely Trump can be convicted for this suicide that he very clearly owns. Condolences to his family. And I sincerely hope all the others take it less hard when they finally figure out they been had. If you find yourself in the pit of despair because your guy lost the election and/or because of the reasons why your guy says he lost the election, please seek help.
