Yesterday, I compared this budget to terrorism. It is a form of domestic terrorism – deplorable!

Unlike Hillary, I am hitching it to the whole GOP who are enabling Trump’s agenda and celebrating these unconscionable cuts.

Katy Perry/Instagram

Over the course of her life, Hillary Clinton has had many important titles bestowed upon her. Of course, she was the First Lady of the United States for eight years, the Senator of New York for eight years, Secretary of State for four, and the first woman to ever be chosen as a major party’s nominee for President.

Now she can add “fashion muse” and “footwear model” to the list, thanks to Katy Perry, who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary. And when Clinton got her hands on a pair of the baby pink pumps, she was more than happy to show them off to their best effect for Perry’s Instagram.

Cute for Easter, they are affordable and come in small sizes, too!  Before I take any more abuse for talking about Hillary’s shoes, yes we do talk about such accessories on men too!  I have seen lots of comments about extra-long neck ties that do not camouflage a big gut.
