"Following a controversial election, Donald Trump has seemingly done everything in his power to make a laughingstock of the executive office. He’s crass, immature and some say unfit for power. After a long string of departures and criminal charges leading back to the doorstep of the White House, it seems that Donald Trump has taken an America that was respected worldwide and turned it into a laughingstock in less than one election cycle."

"On Feb. 12, Attorney General Jeff Sessions praised the nation’s sheriffs at a National Sheriffs Winter Conference in Washington, calling them a “critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.” As one might imagine, immediate backlash from groups such as the NAACP ensued and accused Sessions of racist rhetoric. Many news outlets such as CNN and NBC were quick to report this unusual term by saying this wasn’t in the prepared remarks. When I saw this, I also thought “Wow, that’s racist.” However, as it turns out, this term is used all the time in legal cases. Another day, another distraction from what the Trump administration is doing behind the scenes."

"The phrase “What did Donald Trump do now?” has become a common household topic around the country and this week will be no different. Trump recently released his budget plan for 2019, and of course, there’s a sea of red flags within it. So, it’s quite clear with this new bill that he’d rather parade his masculinity through higher budgets for militia and defense instead of facing real problems like the decline of education and informed media. His victims this time: NPR, PBS and our sanity.

Last week, the president of the United States made an unprecedented move by authorizing the release of a classified memo for his own selfish purposes. The memo, written by Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes, was supposed to detail abuses of power by the FBI and Justice Department. Instead, it was an insubstantial, partisan attempt to discredit the investigation run by special counsel Robert Mueller. President Donald Trump even went so far as to say that this memo “vindicates” him in the Russia probe.
