Made in America

Like the Trump administration’s previously themed weeks, “Made in America” failed to take the media by storm, concluding with the President’s Mar-a-Lago Club applying for 70 additional visas for foreign workers. However, it was another failure which overshadowed the White House’s attempt to control the media narrative: Donald Trump’s negotiating of health care reform.

Dark City

After a chaotic start to the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump officially became the GOP candidate for President last Tuesday.  Conservatives such as GOP strategist Ana Navarro were quick to celebrate the historic moment:  “Tonight, a part of me feels like my puppy died.”

How appropriate that the week ended in a night of jokes at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.

The Berning

Since last week’s 5-state sweep by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton on Super Tuesday 3, supporters of Bernie Sanders have reacted on social media in such a way that suggests we may need a stronger word than hyperbole in the national lexicon to describe it.

Bad Words

“With great power there must also come great responsibility,” reads the narration at the conclusion of Spider-Man’s 1962 origin story. The GOP should make Amazing Fantasy #15 mandatory reading, because the party’s presidential candidates have skipped this life lesson.

The CNN/Telemundo debate was an all-out wrestling event that at times saw moderator Wolf Blitzer lose complete control of the situation. Last week’s Michigan debate saw frontrunner Donald Trump take it from a cage match to a literal dick measuring contest.
