NEW CARAVAN FORMING: A new migrant caravan is forming in Central America, with plans to leave on Tuesday.

They didn’t gather any Trump voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, and ask them if they’re still behind Trump. The media didn’t do any of the stuff they usually do. We have no idea what the valued and very wise independents thought of Trump’s speech.” – Rush Limbaugh, Jan 11, 2019
