For off-the-cuff gaffes, casual insults to the audience, and every category of cringe-worthy idiocy, any Donald Trump speech is hard to match. Consider his remarks in North Dakota, annotated and commentated here by a certain Stephen Colbert. He was supposed to talk about tax reform, but he went off script.

Do you feel jaded by the daily offenses of the man serving as POTUS? Does Trump seem to have degraded the office of the presidency so radically that nothing he says or does can awaken a sense of outrage?

Seven years in the making — and now the Republican legislation to “repeal and replace Obamacare” is finally here.
