    Congress Votes to Limit Trump’s War Powers After Iran Lies: A Closer Look

Trump tried to say that he donates the money to good causes, like fighting the opioid epidemic,…

    Civil Rights Under Trump | Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj | Netflix

    These days,  the president gets so much attention, it kind of makes you feel bad for his team because you know what? They’re working really hard. We have a wonderful group of people. We have a great cabinet. There are those people that say this is one of the best cabinets  this country has ever had. I happen to agree. I do agree. If they’re so great, we should give them more attention. Forget Voldemort. Let’s talk about the Death Eaters surrounding him, because behind the scenes, they’re the ones  quietly getting scary shit done. And the best example of this  is civil rights.
