Democrats cheer a Pence presidency? You bet your bottom dollar they would...

Not by accident did US President Donald Trump bring up Hillary Clinton multiple times at his mind-numbing news conference. He has been in office four weeks. He won the election over three months ago. But, he still feels compelled to bring up his former opponent.

"We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20pc of the uranium in our country," he said. "You know what uranium is, right? This thing called nuclear weapons, and other things. Like, lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things. Nobody talks about that."

He's unintelligible and wrong, but his supporters hear: Hillary Clinton gave away uranium. (By the way, during her tenure as secretary of state, a sale of a Canadian company with mines in the United States was approved. The sale was to Russian oligarchs. Yes, it's bad to give Russians a strategic boost, Mr President.)
