    Anewr a question for me Black Communitty of Milwaukee. Other then call Republican’s racist, and Sexist. What accomplishment’s did Chelsea say her mother has done. Other then say she has had more exsperiance? Is the world safer because of Hillary? No it is not. Did Chelsea say how her mother would bring more job’s for inner city ppeople? No? Did she mention how Hillary would help in education? Nope. All she did was call Republican’s racist, and sexist. I noticed the crowd that showed up for Chelsea were mostly White. Why is that? I’m just saying.

      The idiot feral parasitic black plague must be exterminated. God sent Trump to do just that. HEIL TRUMP!!!

    I’d rather listen to Trump and Cruz argue over wives than listen to the bs being spewed from Chelsea and Bernies mouths.

  • Rafael Perez

    Talk about good omens. Senator Bernie Sanders for President. Birdie Sanders for Vice-President. It would be the cutest and most intelligent Vice-President we ever had.
    Unbought and Unpaid for. Talk about a discerning bird.

    Cruz’s wife looks pretty ugly.
    There are many ugly women running around in politic already, Hillary Clinton for one. It is more than enough for the country to bear.

    Surprise that Hillary Clinton is still allowed to be on the campaign trail instead of being in orange scrubs, in the big house, in upstate New York prison.

    Chelsea Clinton husband Marc Medvinsky is a Hedge Fund Manager for GOLDMAN SACHS! It’s a Family Affair. I will not vote for any candidate who takes money from MONSANTO, Private Prisons, Fracking or Saudi Arabia ( 2 million!) Who’s dictator treats women like dogs
