Since the left and complicit journalists in the mainstream media cannot defeat President Donald Trump on the issues or legitimate grounds such as dishonesty, they have resorted to a superficial collection of tactics. They “make a mountain out of a molehill” and spend endless hours focusing on things that don’t matter.
