I Wouldn’t Live in Montana

I’ve never been to Montana. And I know very little about the state. When I learned that the people of Montana had chosen body slamming Greg Gianforte to represent them in Congress, I was stunned.

The Thug Life Culture

If Trump’s underworld connections were not already widely known, his rude, ugly behavior would be a dead giveaway. That’s how “gangstas” behave. The “made men” in the mob swagger, bully and brag, treat women with disrespect and tell fantastic lies. So do the “gangsta” rappers. So does Trump. And so do his minions.
