Trump White House

The Circus Just Arrived — at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Bernard Goldberg, I’m starting to think the real reason the Barnum & Bailey circus is going out of business has nothing to do with the elephants. Rather, I think, it has to do with the stiff competition it’s been getting from the Trump White House.        The three-ring circus that’s been coming out

The Left Won’t Stop Threatening Violence Against Trump

Ben Shapiro, We’re barely a week and a half into President Trump’s administration, and the left is in sheer panic mode. We’ve seen headlines blaring that Trump instituted a Muslim ban (he didn’t).
