  1. Stupidity knows no racial boundaries. Given his background, I suspect Tam Pham is just another rabid ‘anti-communist’ simpleton duped into believing Donnie’s lies about being pro-America. The truth of the matter is Donnie is only for Donnie and not much else. Well, perhaps to be fair Donnie is also for his banker and boss Vladimir Putin.
