  1. Drumpf is certainly a horror. But Reich is a neoliberal shill for the murderous neocons, whether he knows it or not—(he knows it)—and certainly those war-mongering whores, Bill and Hillary Clinton. Although the nagging and perpetual display of painful concern on his face that he wears with such bleeding-heart-intensity might lead you to believe that he’s only perpetually constipated.
