Greetings Webtaculators! Did you hear? Trump’s inauguration was YUGE! The biggest, period, even if NPS doesn’t count them. Even Kellyanne says so, because there are now such things as “alternative facts.” In all seriousness, what Trump said on his inauguration was atrocious. Here are my thoughts.
For those of you asking for people like me who think he is not fit to be President to “just give him a chance,” well, I just did, and he failed. On to the news.
