Clay Aiken: Whoops, Looks Like I Was Wrong About Trump ...

This week, Trump gave what might be his worse press conference in the history of his administration. While we have every confidence that he can and well do an even worse one, leaping to the defense of Nazis in Charlottesville is pretty bad. Even for him.
