trump twitter earthFor some reason, last night, when looking at the latest twitter storm conducted by Donald Trump, my mind wandered onto some of the great US Presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, Ronald Reagan.  To me, the very notion that very shortly, Donald J.

The media are ramping up the attacks on Donald Trump as the election draws nearer. On Monday, the Trump campaign banned the Washington Post from covering their political events. It was a response to a misrepresentation of Trump’s comments about President Obama. Media critic Howard Kurtz blasted the newspaper for an inaccurate headline suggesting that Trump was saying that Obama was somehow involved in the Orlando shooting.
