Sick of Hearing About Donald Trump

Let me be upfront here. I voted for the guy that seems to be the most loved / most hated man in America. If Donald Trump and Joe Biden are the only two choices on the ballot, I’ll vote for him again (and I am desperately hoping for better choices by then). But this aforementioned…
