President Trump’s claim of former President Barack Obama wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign is about as believable as Reince Priebus’ head exploding from mixing Pop Rocks and Coke. However, Priebus having his own Scanners moment at some point over the next four years is not only more realistic; but likely.
“Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget and I will tell you what you value,” former Vice President Joe Biden said throughout the 2012 campaign. On Thursday, President Trump showed the American people what he valued when he unveiled his budget blueprint… unfortunately, it wasn’t them.
This is a tough one to write. In the wee hours of November 9th, it was announced Donald Trump would be our nation’s 45th President of the United States. Typing that sentence, I feel as if I’m living in the world of Demolition Man… and we all got served a rat burger.

A lot, actually.
