President Trump’s use of the word “sh*thole” to describe Haiti and certain African nations has produced many emotions. For some, to describe a country as a “sh*thole” is racist. Disparaging a country is equivalent to disparaging the people of that country. Demeaning Haiti is said to be the same as demeaning Haitians.

Donald Trump’s greatest political skill is his ability to cause his opponents to be even crazier than he is. The best example of this can be seen through those who have seriously considered invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. “Unable” to Serve The 25th Amendment dictates rules for succession should a president die or become unable to serve.

While many resolutions don’t last past February, they are usually meant to help fix our lives in some way.

Remember the nuclear deal with Iran? The deal we were told would bring peace and stability to the Middle East? The one that would open a new era in the relationship between Washington and Tehran? The deal that people only opposed because they were warmongers? The deal that was touted as President Obama’s biggest foreign policy accomplishment? Well, the Iran deal is back in the news again–and it does not look good for Obama, John Kerry, and the rest of the deal’s advocates.
