Immediately after the crowd chanted “Lock her up!” and “Build that wall!” – yes, even now – Trump mentioned he is having care of veterans “for the 1st time in a prolonged time” and called Brett Kavanaugh “a wonderful fantastic person…one of the best human beings you will ever have the privilege of knowing” and fortunately imagined when Dean Heller, the man he was selling, would appear to him and say, “Mr. President, cease successful so a lot. The men and women of Nevada can’t just take it any for a longer time.” Actually….Mr. President, none of us can choose it any more time. Are we practically performed?
