Only a steadily shrinking minority believes the president’s “witch hunt” rhetoric, and not very strongly. As I say, it’s poorly-scripted melodrama.
“I don’t want to be alarmist, but we’re all gonna die,” responded Late Show host Stephen Colbert to the nuclear pissing contest between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump.
