Meanwhile, here’s more fake news from NBC:
As former FBI Director James Comey prepares to provide oral testimony — a written version was just released publicly — to the Senate on Thursday, President Trump’s approval ratings hover between 35 percent and 40 percent.
The 40 percent approval rating in a recent Gallup poll was the lowest for a newly elected president since it began measuring it.
On prediction trading site PredictIt, 23 percent of bettors think Trump will not be president at the end of 2017; 18 percent think Trump will be impeached in 2017.
Based on his time as Indiana governor, a “President” Pence would likely be a by-the-book conservative on tax cuts and deregulation; possibly a hard-line Tea Party member on health-care repeal; less ardent on infrastructure than Trump and more supportive of free trade.
Only 23%, which doesn’t even cover all those affected by raging Trump Derangement Syndrome.
As a fun capper to the morning, here’s fake news leader CNN:

So a leader in fake news is fighting fake news.
Oh, and back to Newsweek: They may want to have a chat with one of their “star” reporters:
