This week in anti-Trump activism: Conclusion? Collusion

It genuinely feels like months, if not years, since we found out Donald Trump’s oldest son (may or may not have) colluded with the Russian government to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. In reality, it has been just over a week, but time is moving so slowly and I don’t know if this administration will ever end.
