Thursday, August 31, 2017

by Bill Whalenvia Forbes
Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Rahm Emanuel is famous for two things. One is this quote: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that: it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” That passage comes to mind watching President Trump’s stops in Texas and Missouri.
