He calls political leaders “crazy,” “low IQ,” “dumb as a rock,” “very dumb,” a “loser,” and for some, like Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, hurls racist epithets at them.

According to The Washington Post’s “Fact Checker,” Trump has lied approximately 11,000 times since he took office. He’s a well-documented racist and misogynist. More than 20 women have credibly accused him of … [Read more...] about Does Trump have even one redeeming quality?
