Well, President Trump is back from his “Embarrass America” tour of Europe, the Middle East and Israel (which apparently is no longer in the Middle East). So we’re back, too, ready to join his Welcome Home celebration.
By early morning, we’ll be hearing the reassuring chants of White House correspondents, reporting: “The President is awake, and he’s tweeting.” And with that will come the next stream of Trumpian Alternative Facts.
Don’t forget: The Russian influence probes are still on. So are the Republican efforts to “repeal and replace” Obamacare and pass a new budget. And the Denier-in-Chief promises a decision ASAP on whether to back the U.S. out of the Paris Accords on climate change.
All are fertile ground for POTUSian prevarication. So, stay tuned for our next round of what promises to be a frenzied flow of fact-checking.
