  • After 100 days: A strange, failed presidency

        It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt who established the standard of measuring a presidency by what is accomplished during its first 100 days.

         Naturally, it was a case of a conservative icon being “persecuted” by liberal women. They unfairly accused him – charges he called “unfounded” – the same way such charges were lobbied at our “Make America White Again,” president, God’s own Donald Trump.
