"You've Been Trumped" is a potent study of the intimidating power of money not in theory but on the ground, an examination of how a wealthy man with a boundless sense of entitlement can strong-arm all opposition without really breaking a sweat.

Audience Reviews for You've Been Trumped

Angry and convincing polemic/documentary that tackles the gruesome figure of Donald Trump and reveals him to be an even bigger fuckwit of epic twattery than previously thought.
