The Trump Administration is guilty of countless wrongdoing, including monstrous acts that no one cares about, at least not in the press. In the meantime, the media is obsessing over a meeting between a 2016 Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer, Donald Trump, Jr. and a number of other attendees.
Once again, GOP Senate leaders have been forced to cancel a planned vote on Trumpcare’s “repeal and replace” plan. Now President Trump says he wants to repeal Obamacare without replacing it. Can you say political suicide?
In the current healthcare reform debate, GOP lawmakers have made clear that they view healthcare like any other commodity governed by the laws of supply and demand. But there’s a big difference between shopping for a new refrigerator and looking for a doctor while you’re sick.
Many American workers say they’re wary of interacting with members of the opposite sex at work. Women are worried about sexual harassment; men are worried about being falsely accused of sexual harassment. But how will women advance if they can’t socialize with men in the workplace?
President Trump’s voter-fraud commission made news when states refused to share personal voter data with it.

Amusingly, Democrats and media outlets criticize the very Trump agenda items that they’re also criticizing them for not being able to pass due to legislative dysfunction.
