    What utter rububish . The US voters combined with a 18th C editorial system has managed to elect a set of complete degenerates to to the Congress and Senate of the USA and the orange winner is assembling the most toxic set of cabnen members and other advisers. Therefore blame Russia.

    Perhaps it’s time for the USA to admit it did it to itself?
