Trump: I'll break it and then claim credit for almost fixing it

Sharing fake information does not promote your cause
I remember a while back, one of my acquaintances shared a photo in Facebook, with a caption something like "That's what happens to Muslims in X country run by Christians". My friend is a Muslim, and while he is a really great guy, sometimes he gets some things very wrong.
Paris Climate agreement, Iran Nuclear deal, Human Rights Council, Healthcare ... Flat Earth?
After becoming the president of the United States of America, Trump has done everything but build his wall. He has insulted disabled people; he has separated immigrant children from their families; he has been in ugly non-presidential Twitter fights with pretty much everyone; he has been an eight-year-old two-faced twat that he actually is; he's left the Paris Climate agreement because, well, climate change is obviously not real; he has abandoned the Iran Nuclear deal; he has left the UN Human Rights Council; he has taken away affordable(ish) healthcare from a number of people; he has lied possible around at least thousand times about everything from meetings with Russians to crowd size during his inauguration; he gave tax cuts for himself and his wealthy friends. Probably his next statement will be claiming that the Flat Earth conspiracy theorists have been right all along. But at least he has made on friend one the way, Kim Jong-un.
Trump's State of the Union was NOT watched by record number of people
It's not even news anymore that Trump's claims don't hold up in the world of...well, reality, but here we go again. Trump tweeted that his State of the Union was watched by the highest number of people in history. And this time we can't even understand why would he have to shout out an obvious lie.

Trump keeps children hostage, demands $25 billion
While the wording is slightly incorrect, considering the issue is not necessarily with children, but 1.8 million undocumented immigrants who have been brought to the United States as children, he is essentially keeping them hostage, saying that he would offer them path to citizenship only if Democrats are willing to create a $25 billion trust fund for border wall.

Trump's speech hailed as brilliant
Trump gave a long speech in Poland. I read the full transcript from The Australian, and then read the comments under it - one thing you should never do, but you still do it every once in a while from sick interest.
Trump visited Twitter again
Not that it's something new. But it definitely is a new day. And new day brings new tweets from the dude. And the new tweets bring new controversy. And in that perspective, there's actually nothing new. As if even the day hasn't changed.
Washington, cannabis, and the secret public high
During Obama's presidency the laws related to marijuana, or pot, weed, dope, burrito, rope, ganja, schwag, became ... let's say, softer. They removed the bureaucratic obstacle to privately-funded medical marijuana research, making medical marijuana research easier.

Donald Trump's wall problems
Donald Trump, the unfortunate 45th president of the United States, as one of his main promises to the people who elected him, he said that he will build a big, beautiful wall, so beautiful that even Ivanka is nothing next to it.
Ivanka - you are beautiful, but your father is still an ignorant asshole
And I believe you know it. You've been living together with the man for ages, so you'd be the first to know who he is. Of course he is your father, and nobody likes people talking crap about our family, but even if you don't like it, much of it can be true, as it is the case with your father.
