Fake news or mad-man President?
This is the question being discussed today all over the world after one of the most provocative pressers in recent memory, or, say, even-- ever, in US presidential politics.
Roger Stone denies Russian involvement, slams fake news, Priebus, talks press conference
One of the politicos, right in the middle of the 2016 election, who played a major role outside of the Donald Trump campaign, is Roger Stone.
Instead of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, maybe, Donald Trump should have invited the Red Army Chorus to his inauguration.

The mirepoix of Donald J. Trump is, typically, bravado bluster and bull. For this, among other reasons, it’s hard to accuse him of scholarship, but Trump says he has “learned a lot in the last two weeks.” He’s only got 208 weeks left to get it right or flunk out.

Today, on the 38th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution, thousands of Iranians demonstrated in Tehran. As usual, the crowd rallied against the “Great Satan,” yelling “Death to America.

Most likely, the nation’s financial problems would be at the top of anyone’s list. “It’s the economy, stupid,” says the Ragin’ Cajun, James Carville. But can a president really make that much difference in solving the country’s economic woes?
