“Has Trump Made Approval Polls Meaningless?”


POLITICO

It’s been just another 24 hours or so in the alternate political universe where we dwell. The president of the United States has retweeted incendiary—and some inauthentic—videos of supposed Muslim depredations that brought angry words from America’s oldest ally, and even from INFOWARS—home of Alex Jones’ conspiracy theories.

We are told by the New York Times that the president now says the voice on that infamous “Access Hollywood” tape—for which he publicly apologized in October 2016, and for which Billy Bush was fired—may not be his at all, and he has been reanimating the baseless, racist smear that Barack Obama may not have been born in the United States.” MORE

As Tweets reveal, in a clash between humans and weather that could threaten millions of individuals (holy and otherwise) in Florida, Cuba and Puerto Rico, the Church is decidedly pro-weather.” MORE
