*by Noah* A skeleton in a MAGA hat. The definition of irony! Or, is it just a symbol for a horrible truth? Problem is those 62 million who cast their votes against themselves and for a Putin-directed Trump regime will never see the irony. They have no interest in the world of the living. They are the brainwashed conned, the self-hating zombie walking dead, and proud of it. But, we're stuck with them stumbling mindlessly among us as they try to drag humankind faster and deeper into the abyss. As for the monstrously psychotic Trump himself, he doesn't need a costume. Whether he wa... more »
