Which Hunt?

Donald Trump is America's worst president, says a survey of 170 members of the American Political Science Association’s Presidents and Executive Politics section.

The survey was conducted by Brandon Rottinghaus, a professor of political science at the University of Houston, and Justin S. Vaughn, an associate professor of political science and director of the Center for Idaho History and Politics at Boise State University.

They showed Barack Obama towering over Trump. Obama was in the top 10, up from 18th when a previous survey was conducted in 2014. The authors said since the four years when the previous survey was released, the other big change in rankings had James Buchanan benefiting from Trump. Buchanan was evicted from his position at the very bottom by Trump.

in other news,

More than a month after President Trump pledged to testify before Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation, there is no evidence he might do so — or if he will speak to the special counsel at all. As Trump continues to denounce the Russia investigation as a "witch hunt" — or "WITCH HUNT!" as he put in a tweet — administration officials said his attorneys continue to negotiate with Mueller's office.

While the Trump and Mueller teams have refused to comment, one question hovers above all: If Trump refuses to testify, will Mueller subpoena the president?

Wait, and see…
