Fifteen years after becoming eligible, Devo was nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, and I was immediately struck by the timing of our sudden recognition.

Share to Twitter Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he often had to push back on President Trump, telling him that some of his requests would violate the law. "So often, the president would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President, I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way.

But as preposterous as it sounds, there's a case to be made that he's simultaneously America's most honest president. Every now and then, in the midst of his unending eruption of prevarication, Trump will blurt out the truth about the United States in a way that no normal politician ever has.
