Eighty-one days ago, a begrimed burlap puppet choked by a red power tie flopped into the Oval Office. And now, as his first 100 days as President come to a lugubrious close, the White House must try to convince us that they weren’t an utter disaster. Sad!
Sean Hannity, a Fox News host and malevolent Teddy Ruxpin, joined Ted Koppel on CBS Sunday Morning for a discussion on political polarization in the media. And with admirable serenity, Koppel informed Hannity that he is part of the problem.

He did, however, state outright that “President Trump is not trying to be a…
Mike Pence, aged zombie Ken doll and United States vice president, declared on Sunday that he is confident education secretary pick Betsy DeVos will be confirmed. Pence indicated that he will use his tie-breaking vote to resolve the current 50-50 Senate gridlock.
Donald Trump, a clump of moldering chickpeas and the 45th President of the United States, is quite agitated over the prevailing negative response to his inauguration: the dinky crowd, the roaring protests, the tweets — oh the tweets!
