1/ So the new argument I'm getting from Trump supporters who read my columns is this: "Look at how well the economy is doing! Why don't you look at your 401k before criticizing the president!" Setting aside the questionable assumption that Trump has done anything to...
2/ ...significantly spur the economy, is that really what drives these people? You don't care about Trump's obvious unfitness for office or his constant degradation of the presidency, you just care about whether you're making money? I know the answer to this is yes, but that...
