It would be interesting to see a correlation between so-called Trump Trauma and alcohol sales, which always go up in times of national stress. If there isn't one, it might be safe to say that the alleged injury is a lie, perpetrated to gain sympathy and support.

The only issue all democrats need to come to terms with is that they are habitual liars and yes this applies to all democrats.
