Skinner: When the voting is over the primary is over on DU. [View all]

This has gone on long enough. Once the voting is done I have no interest in pretending everyone doesn't already know the outcome.

My opinion is that Donald Trump represents an unprecedented threat to this country, and I have no interest in providing a platform for people to act like a Trump presidency isn't such a big deal. I have permitted it during primary season because many people seem determined to pretend we live in a fantasyland where Republicans don't exist -- but once the primary is over reality sets in and we can no longer afford to ignore our Republican opponent


Has this been discussed already and I missed it? If so I apologize for posting.. I couldn't find anything, but then I didn't get any sleep last night.

Good News! Thanks Skinner~
