When it comes to the latest nonsense involving Trump, the easiest way to proceed is to assume everyone involved is lying. Trump, Bannon, Michael Wolff, Donald Trump Jr. -- all of them.
It's also best to assume none of it matters very much. All the calliope music is just that.
Things happening at home matter more. Especially in our little corner of the world. We're only four days into the new year and we've got plenty to consider.
