Yesterday it was a positive jobs report, today it’s illegal immigration, I know that its been less than two months since the inauguration, and so much good has happened in that short time. The president promised there would be so much winning that we would get sick and tired of all the winning. But if I were to be perfectly honest, there’s not even a twinge…no feeling of being sick and tired of all of the Trump winning.
