And has it been 4,471 days since Sean Hannity promised he would undergo waterboarding to prove it isn’t torture?
Not that anyone is counting.
News Headline: “Howard Schultz heckled at event: ‘Don’t help elect Trump, you egotistical billionaire a**hole.’ ”

Something you may not have noticed:
The Chinese students, in speaking Chinese in front of those who didn’t, were committing a microaggression in the form of a horizontal oppression leading to a microinvalidation and threatened safe space.

News Headline: “Sarah Sanders: Roger Stone indictment ‘has nothing to do with the president.’ ”
News Headline: “Trump’s first year was the most dishonest in history. His second was nearly three times worse.”

“When writing about 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, should we always capitalize the word ‘the,’ as in, The White House?”
No. It is “the White House.”
