  1. At checkout, I have asked the local Save Mart to take the Enquirer off the rack in line. David Pecker the owner of this rag has helped defraud the American people time and time again. He bought the story of Trump having an affair with a porn star and buried it so it wouldn’t come out before the election. Criminal acts to cover up the life of a perverted, infidelity fueled, madman— Donald Trump.
