Everyone’s talking about Trump’s first 100 days in office, but I’m going to keep my comments fairly short.

To be clear, I don’t believe the titular statement is true, nor would anyone else in their right mind. (Hey, I made a pun!) But, there are certain people on the Left who think it’s true, or at the very least would like you to believe it is. Take Vanity Fair, for instance…. As I […]
