Who is Really the Leader of the Free World?


Not another rant against (or for) Trump, but rather a deconstruction of this mindless term so often repeated. “Leader of the free world” is notable for its idiocy on multiple levels. First of all, WTF is the “free world?” Presumably, the Western “democracies,” as opposed to the “unfree” world, run by communist or fascist dictators. Of course, the truth is…
