The question

There is only one word to describe the Democrats’ no-holds-barred, bar-room brawl of a debate in Las Vegas and the contentious beatdown of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg by the rest of the 2020 hopefuls – Ouch! Watching the debate, the only thing many of us took away was this: Those people are […]
