On Saturday Feb. 29 President Donald Trump gave his annual CPAC speech, which spanned about two hours and took full advantage of roasting the press box.

It’s become a yearly tradition for President Trump to take the long journey over to National Harbor, Maryland every February.

After three and a half frustrating years, it feels like a breath of fresh air to see Brexit finally happen.
