How Donald Trump’s ‘Apprentice’ moved from capitalism to sexism

in 2017/Top Headlines by

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Which is appropriate, because so far there has been lots of menacing rumbling, if not a great deal of light. And, like any storm on the horizon, this one might pass without leaving a trace. Still, it seems the time is right to brace ourselves. Based on the freshest available evidence, it’s no longer…
