Trump’s First 100 Days

Just about every media outlet has done a story about President Trump’s first one hundred days. Some made an attempt to be different and did his next 265, or next 1360 instead.

He finally does nab it, but I’ll leave you to see for yourself whether he exhibits typical cat behaviour.
