  1. As a Canadian, I am shocked, disappointed, bewildered, and very sad when I hear how Nancy Pelosi was treated at this event. I hope the performers stepped up and defended her.
    You realize that Trump once said on a late night tv show that if he ever ran for president he (at the time a Democrat) would run as a Republican because “they are stupid enough to vote for me”.
    Trump’s words.
