I have found it nothing short of amazing what a change in tone has occurred since the change in occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I swear, it has become "Opposites Day", to the point where it has become hypocritical. Let me illustrate:

If you spouted "birtherism" in 2009, you don't get to decry stories that don't expressly validate your worldview as "Fake News" in 2017.

If your mantra January 21, 2009 was "Make Obama a One-term President," you don't get to plead "Give Trump a chance" in January 2017.

OK, 2016 Can End Already!
