8 Tweets That Sum Up How Everyone Is Already OVER This Election
How many times have you tuned in to some election news in the last several months and immediately pulled a horrified face, recoiling from what appeared to be a dark parody of American politics? Like, f’real, this election is never-ending! And the parties HAVEN’T EVEN PICKED THEIR NOMINEES!
