Trump, have you heard of F. Scott Fitzerald and the "Gold-Star Mothers"?
My Warfield Cousin F. Scott Fitzgerald knew that a place could be consecrated by the presence of Gold-Star Mothers.
Someone could read to Donald Trump 140 characters of prose from TENDER IS THE NIGHT.
Another cousin of ours, Paul Warfield Tibbets, Jr., might have had something to say about Trump's disrespect to those who have sacrificed for the country.
