If you are looking for a part timer I have a very good friend who might be able to do this. But he's doing his masters so he can't work full-time.
Who's ready for another 4 years of Trump 2020!

If they are qualified, we might be able to work with them! Please tell them to apply using the link in the ad (I also recommend they submit a cover letter). Thank you so much!

Is your friend happy to work for any amount of money? Because they don't seem to have mentioned that in the ad? They're still counting on being inundated with applications, though.
