The Donald Campaign Message 12/6/2015

Dear Staffee, That’s the familiar form of staff.  It shows love, devotion, humility and, and quite frankly, it gives a big bear hug to each of you without being present.  It also leads me into some of my recent findings on political persuasion and what this country is lacking today. First; If you haven’t noticed
