But between chants of “not my president” at protests across the country and calls from politicians to "take a wait and see approach,” people from marginalized groups have been quietly preparing for the possibilities of that a Trump presidency makes good on all, or even some, of its campaign promises. “We’re not having a debate...

Like a playground built for them. While Trump boasts about grabbing women by the pussy, something he can do “because he’s famous.”, Marla Maples, his ex-mistress, tried to score a free hair-do for her and Tiffany...
