Boner Fight for July 18th, 2017

BONER CANDIDATE #1: NOT EVEN CLOSE, MR. PRESIDENT.

To hear President Trump tell it, his first six months in the White House should be judged in part by the legislation he has signed into law. At rallies, in speeches and on Twitter, Mr. Trump repeatedly boasts of the bills he has signed — 42 as of this week. He has said no president has “passed more legislation,” conceding once earlier this year that he trails Franklin D. Roosevelt, who he notes “had a major Depression to handle.” On Monday, he went even further, claiming to have bested all of his predecessors in turning bills into law.“We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through the legislature — than any president, ever,” Mr. Trump said at a “Made in America” event at the White House. “For a while, Harry Truman had us.

You’ll also see lots and lots of animals in their natural habitat.”
