With Trump in office the news continues to be troubling, disturbing, and somewhat chaotic. In addition this morning there is an attack in Russia with many people dead. Unfortunately it's only a matter of time before the US is in a major crisis and there will be two effects. One is that people will rally behind the less than prepared president and the second is that his Russia connection woes and reality will take a back page. We also are learning that Bill O of FOX fame, is a pig. FOX has paid out nearly $13Million to keep his victims of sexual harassment quiet. Chalk up another GOPer who purports to obnoxiously tell the world what is wrong and that the GOP has the answer along with condescending stupidity, as just another run of the mill arrogant pig.
