What is Fake News and Where The Hell Does It Come From?

President Trump – Where To Go From Here?

As a 19-year-old student at the University of Michigan, politics is something that has been so far from my mind. With midterm season, a case of seasonal allergies, and tailgating season still going on, you could say I have been more than distracted these past couple weeks. After the results last night, the lack of […]
