The George Washington Presser: Donald Trump Delivers Crowning Achievement In Abject Absurdity

"...according to Mr. Pillsbury, China has total respect for Donald Trump's ahh-very large brain."

On August 15, 2017, in the wake of - and I can't even believe I'm saying this - a fatal Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Donald Trump convened a press conference ostensibly to talk to reporters about infrastructure. Suffice to say infrastructure ended up getting short shrift. The President, at wit's end with questions about his handling of the Charlottesville incident, had a meltdown on national television.

    I ask, when will this “national nightmare” be over? I’ll say that I look at history quit differently now. I thought extreme nationalism was always fanned only by dire situations.
