Who are President
Yeah, I know what you're thinking. You see their smirks and those six bloody elbows between the three of them, and you figure this is no relationship.
But it is a relationship that works for the president because they keep bringing up his favorite subject. And it works fine for Barack and Hillary because it fills their egos with a mighty wind.

Every day and every night, the West and South sides bleed and roll over on the sidewalks, another deadly spring turning into another deadly summer.
