    I am very surprised that Zinke said he was against Federal land transfers then voted for them. NOT!

    How anyone could have voted for this glory seeking clown is beyond me. He is anti-Montanan, and he will do anything for his personal gain, regardless of how it affects us.
    Republicans should hold their collective heads in shame for allowing him to take office, any office.

    This whole thing just keeps getting worse and worse. When drumpf was elected I knew things would be bad, but what is occurring now is like I have entered the “Twilight Zone”. God help us all.
