Waaaay too heavy-handed
26 April 2019 | by evmc-1See all my reviews

No one - I swear, no one - loathes Donald Trump more than I do, but this was simply too, too heavy-handed. I am so disappointed in the lack of finesse in these episodes. I gave this a 5 only because the performers were so good. They deserved better.
