This week's Fool-on-the-Hill is Rep. Evan Jenkins (Repugnican-W.Va.) who is concerned the Mad King's anti-enviro edicts won't go far enough to destroy the planet recently said: "We need to put the legislative stamp of approval on what the Trump administration is doing."

It's an idea that Trump is "really interested" in, said Gov. Jim Justice, who made headlines last week for switching political parties from Democrat to Republican as Trump visited the state."
