    WCCO didn’t want to talk about Hillary’s disastrous debate last night. So they hide it here. Along with the Mosul failure. Mosul invasion was created to give Obama-Hillary some kind of military authority. All retired generals said the invasion was totally bizarre and unwarranted. ISIS leaders were given 3 months to flee. Obama publicized it! W T F?

    So why is liberal Democrat state owned WCCO hiding all the WikiLeaks info on the Democrats and Hillary? The corruption and illegal activity clearly shown by these people is enormous!
