Youth pastor has a weird, bloody dream involving President Trump
“So I had the weirdest dream last night. I was at my Grandmother’s house in Waynesboro on the couch talking to Donald Trump and he was really being cool and charming. And then my (deceased) dog Tyson jumped up on the couch and started biting at one of Trump’s friends face. We calmed Tyson down and then another dog came and bit Tyson’s tail and wouldn’t let go. And it was so sad. He was crying because he was in so much pain. So I start punching the other dog in the face and he finally let go, leaving a pool of Tyson’s blood. What’s funny is how I woke up with my heart pounding after such a stupid dream.” — Eric Anthony Brown.
