This isn’t “disappointing.” It’s not “unfortunate.” It’s not “regrettable.”
It’s f***ing un-American. It’s undemocratic. It’s wrong. It’s what they do in places like Russia and China. Not here.
Denying Americans the right to vote in order to protect Donald Trump? Outrageous. https://t.co/NF64F8Pzt8
