Mike's Blog Round Up
September 1, 2016

So I could mention Trump here, and his stupid, pointless trip to Mexico (where he didn't even talk about getting them to pay for his stupid, un-American wall (some negotiator, eh? BAD!)), and how Mexicans are furious with their (highly unpopular) president for meeting with him, and basically furious that Trump was in their country to begin with (can you blame them?), and so on and so forth, but why not mention instead that America has a pretty awesome president right now and that, on the whole, Americans' lives have gotten a whole lot better while he's been in office (and that Hillary, as his successor, would very much continue the positive work he's done)?

All Things Democrat: How the Clinton Foundation works.

AMERICAblog: How the media dropped the ball.

Gin and Tacos: How the wall isn't a virtual thing.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here all week.
