Yee haw! Yeah, lock her up! Oh, wait. Trump uses an unsecured phone in the White House. Nevermind. I guess we are all cool with cyber security breeches now. Did she force secret service to illegally use money and resources on her commercial properties? Because that would be a serious.. oh, wait. Nope. We are way cool with that now too.

Sure, but when the rest of the pictures are recent, it's a bit odd to have one photo that's (by the looks of him) from half a century ago. I'm surprised they had colour photography when Greenspan was that young!

I actually lost interest before the first time. I think emulating Trump for his stand-up comedy skills is quite a reach even for those who think he's killin' it bigly as president. My shoes have better comedic chops.

If you want to renew your interest, you should just ask these people what crime she committed as a follow-up question. They'll mumble something about unsecured email, and then you can ask how that is a crime and which law it violates, and then the fun really starts. Because they have absolutely no freaking idea.

Booker is a Senator from New Jersey (D) and is considered noteworthy for his bipartisanship; Boehner was a Congressman from Ohio (R) and was also Speaker of the House for part of his time in office; Franken is a comic actor turned liberal politician who was a Senator from Minnesota (D), and Warren is a Senator from Massachusetts (D) known for her criticism of big business and the sleazy type of businessmen once known as "robber barons."

Considering Warren tried to fake Native American heritage and Booker more admitted to sexually assaulting someone in his teen year, it would be quite hypocritical for either one to make it out of the nominating process after the last few weeks.
