Trump continues to write off more losses in newly leaked 2005 tax return. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/14/us/politics/donald-trump-taxes.html The White House responded without even waiting for the show to air, issuing a statement that seemed to confirm the authenticity of the forms even as it de...

You smell that? Take a deep breath through the nose. Really let that seep in. What are you getting? Because to me, that's part man-smell, and the other part is really bad man-smell. I don't know why, but overall it just smells like the color brown. Your thoughts?
