Trump has been saying that he didn’t stay overnight in Moscow in 2013, which was during the Miss Universe pageant.

The DCCC Screws Up Again

By Michael Jay Tucker What is wrong with the Democratic Party? Or, rather, what’s wrong with its elites? Why don’t they get it? Why do they keep screwing up?
