All that, regardless she had sufficient energy to snap ungainly Christmas-themed photographs of herself “festivating” in underwear.
Donald Trump, Scott Baio and Kid Rock
Hillary Clinton jogged out her parade of A-rundown lefties, yet President-elect Trump and his swarm of has-beens had the last snicker.
