Terrorist or pedophile? This start-up says it can out secrets by analyzing faces. And I can tell the future via haruspicy. Like for real.
Nothing But The Truth. This is “radical” and “new” only if you are a goddamn moron.
Clinton cronies smearing voters she’ll need. Clinton is the worst campaigner I’ve seen in my lifetime.
