As a public service, here are all the things Donald Trump has been right about:

  1. Sweden
  2. Anthony Weiner
  3. NATO not focusing on terrorism
  4. Brexit
  5. Election being rigged against Bernie Sanders
  6. Obama “wiretapping” him
  7. Three million illegal votes

Not bad, Mr. President! Maybe you could whisper in my ear who the next Super Bowl champ is going to be. I promise not to tell anyone.
