HARD FACTOR 4/9: (H)UGE Trumpdate, Uncle Chaps Joins to Talk Mussolini
On Today's Episode of Hard Factor:We're joined by special guest host @UncleChaps. Trump had such a big day. So much stuff.Trump fired the director of the Secret Service. He named the Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corpsas terrorists. The Senators he tapped for the “healthcare policy group” just aren't that into him. And a California judge blocked Trump's policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for their cases to be heard by an immigration court, and it's only Monday. I would bet the over on an early departure to Mar-a-Lago for Donald this week.If you're saying to yourself “yea, there is something vaguely familiar and also evil about this guy's face” then you may have paid attention in history class. Meet Julius Caesar Mussolini. He is the great grandson of the bad boy of the Axis Of Evil, Benito Mussolini. Beyond his name being Julius Caesar (which is equivalent of an Austrian being named Archduke Franz Ferdinand) he is running on behalf the the Brothers of Italy Party; so this should work out well for all parties involved.
