Some of you guys may be a little young. But, Saturday Night Live opened with the same pointless story for about a month:
General Franco is still dead!!
Franco took several months to die and the media gave pointless updates every day (before and after his death), just like they are doing with Russian ties to Trump. Three months is a long time for key investigators (Not partisan politicians) to tell us they have found no links between Trump and Putin.
The regular news headline each day (I'm not kidding....read the New York Times):
After three months the investigation of ties between Trump and Russia continues, without evidence.
