Prairie Village and Overlsnd Park is not Kansas City. Nice try, though.

"Overland Park neighborhood sustains damage during tornado warning"

More like Vindman targeted Trump and is a traitor to the country. We all saw how Trump was a target so if Vindman can't take the heat right back then he needs to keep his fat mouth shut. This divided country is not going to stand much longer. They say we won't fight each other and take out our own countryman. I say BS to that, I would in a heartbeat.
