Everyone around Donald Trump is too polite to Donald Trump. Democrats, foreign dignitaries, underlings… all of them. And the White House press is perhaps the worst offender. From the media pool playing along with Sarah Sanders during press conferences—conferences where Sanders openly lies and pisses on democracy—to access merchants like Maggie Haberman doling out Trump gossip like so many bread crumbs, too many reporters have been far too deferential to an administration that is brazenly racist, dysfunctional, and corrupt.#WeTriedToTellYa

As Waters began to speak, House Speaker Paul Ryan was seen seated behind Biden laughing at the overture.
Who is laughing now?

Look no further than his voter base to unearth evidence of the erosion of our national IQ.
