Trump’s a loon, and now, here’s why it flies

Trump’s a loon, Part 2, jiggled out easily from the shell of Greenland proves Trump’s a loon. The mass media did its part, treating the president’s Greenland pursuit as something real. They love clickbait, and Trump tosses them plenty. Can we ever forget how they fell all over the “but her emails” campaign?

So, why does the media keep tossing him handfuls of bird seed?
