    3. Update: Trump’s first 100 days infrastructure plan may just be bills that have already passed and proposals he campaigned against

    4. Settling a lawsuit for $25 million dollars is not what you do just because "don’t have time," it's what you do because you don't have a case

    5. Guys, Mike Pence deserved to be booed, because seriously, how long does a man have to run for VP before he decides to get comp seats to Hamilton?
