"They are the scum of Europe," said the Iron Duke. "I don’t know if they scare Napoleon but they scare me."
I’ve just finished watching Debate No. 2 of the leading Democratic presidential candidates. I watched Debate No. 1 last night. My conclusion: they are scary, angry people.
I don’t think I have ever seen a candidate for high office as demented-looking and just plain crazy as Cory Booker. "The most fraudulent human being in America," said Tucker Carlson about him, and he didn’t go far enough.
