Webtacular World Issue # 178, April 30, 2017

Greetings Webtaculators! Well, the Trump Presidency officially turned one hundred days old. In his mind, the hundred day marker is stupid, but he’s also doing tremendously, so Trump gave a speech, and then went golfing. The press threw a different sort of party, which the President declined to attend (SAD!) because, well, to put it nicely, his first 100 days have been sort of a mixed bag. On to the news.
