For bitter, angry people who love to mix their booze and Xanax, the election season is like freaking Christmas.

What The Hillary?!?

Do you remember back when everyone was sure the Donald’s campaign would fizzle out before summer’s end? That was around when Hillary was the presumed Democratic nominee?
