The day marks the Aug. 26, 1920 adoption of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

says the daughter of the world's greatest misogynist, philanderer, narcissist, bully, hate monger & liar. Yet you stand by his side without a single public utterance voicing any displeasure about anything he does, says or tweets. Either speak up of just go the the fuck away!

Somehow you do not capture the soul of women in society. Voting is our right to spread Justice, humanity and freedom for all. Your Administration doesn't have any of those. Especially trust and truth!
