On the brink of Donald Trump’s AmeriKKKa, the bigots keep failing up. And the latest beneficiary of the trend is none other than Megyn Kelly, whose moderating duties during a 2015 GOP Presidential debate Trump infamously surmised to CNN’s Don Lemon with “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes.

Personally, it was an indescribable feeling to see someone in such a position of power that looked like me, that understood things the same way I did. Here was a guy that could make an valid argument as to why Michael Jordan was the best to ever play basketball. And he was the president. It was the first time that I could say that maybe, just maybe, the President of the United States and I could swap iTunes libraries and not too much would beRead More →
