I know that absolutely nothing will change, but I do take some pleasure in seeing the White House Press Corps stand up to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and call her a liar to her face

When we first found out about that secret July 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian operatives, Donald Trump Jr., as you may recall, came forward with a ridiculous explanation.

White Power shoutouts from the White House

As everyone else is writing about the Trump’s first hundred days, how he didn’t accomplish anything that he’d said that he would, and how he just responded with yet another lie, telling the American people that, despite what we might hear from the “lying press,” he’s kept his promises, I’ve decided to spend my time […]
