    What is it that people do not understand about President Trump’s penchant for “trolling” the lefty press, and politicians ? He got them again, whether they realize it, or want to admit it, or not ! He doesn’t have to even put bait on the hook a lot of the time they just like the taste of bare steel, or is it the flashiness of the bare hook ? And evidently there is no limit on ignorant lefties. I rather enjoy watching him chuckin’ um out and reelin’ um in !
