Watched a couple of minutes of the "#MarchForTruth"
in New York City, one of a series of "nationwide rallies demanding

"commie" program -- the glories of state-run health care, the shame of
white privilege, the evils of Donald Trump ... who, by pulling out of
the Paris Accords, has emerged as the biggest threat to that same
since Ronald Reagan. Not that we discuss such things in such terms.
One of the rally speakers was House of Cards writer Beau Willimon...
