I don’t know how the bar keeps on getting lower, but it does. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Losing All Hope
Why: Because Trump lost his communications director (I still find it impossible that someone actually held this job), is probably going to have to kick his son-in-law out, and is still openly feuding with most of his remaining staff.
