Fox News analyst Juan Williams offered a grand political post-mortem in The Hill newspaper this week: “Let’s agree on one fact: Donald Trump upended the political world with his win.

Since then, the most revealing aspect of the fallout from those…
Williams: Clintons' 'Make America Great' Uses Had Different 'Context'
September 10th, 2016 1:23 PM
Leftist reporters and commentators have been tagging the "Make America Great Again" slogan of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign as bigoted and hateful virtually since his candidacy began.

In the first of two Super Tuesday 4 editions of FNC’s The Five, co-host Juan Williams sought to admit the obvious that much of the media has become obsessed with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, but he didn’t employ such a term and instead awkwardly asserted that “[w]e’re all attracted to Donald Trump.”
