So apparently the PM managed to get through a 15 minute call without “upsetting” Trump. That’s where we set the bar these days.

The Trump / Spicer claim that the inauguration crowds were “the largest audience ever to witness and inauguration, period” are such an obvious lie that it seems unhinged. But there could be method to the madness.

This year, who knows?
UPDATE: Barack Obama LIVE STREAMING NOW.
