About the author



  • Why is the dumb ass male host asking Daniel Bekele of Human Rights Watch (HRW) if he thinks Drumpf's cuts to the U.N. are political? We know they are but Daniel sure doesn't want to get HRW on manbaby's enemies list.

  • With trump and his new budget getting money from the US is growing impossible. Its going to be the other counties like Switzerland or the UK who are among the most charitable countries in the world. Until trump either gets impeached, assassinated or his term is over you'll have to go to them for aid.
