The backstory here speaks much louder than the verdict.
Oliver's laundry list of red flags began when he was in middle school.
According to court records, he was a member of a group called Caucasians in Effect, carried a stun gun and a knife, posted swastikas in public places and "hated anyone who was not caucasian."
Ok, with Trump set to take the stage in West Virginia in a mere 90 mins, might as well take a swing at what we might see from him.

I'm gonna throw a curve though.
I used to write about Trump's narcissistic personality disorder all the time. Back in the day, it was almost eerie how accurately his shtick could be predicted. Folks who have been around my feed for a while can vouch for that...

We just don't have enough of a window anymore. We see too little.
