But this is still very soothing and contains tons of fascinating data and I have bookmarked it so I can calm myself down as necessary.

The president is not happy with Trump calling himself a populist.

As funny as the "Trump solicits liberal foreign politicians for donations" story was, it sounds right to me that it was probably a prank.
