France experiences historic election turnout.
I guess you should share your superior knowledge with the media. They say you're wrong.
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus insisted on Sunday that President Donald Trump is fulfilling his campaign promises at “breakneck speed,” though Trump will likely reach his 100th day in office with no notable pieces of legislation to his name.
Speaking on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Priebus also claimed that “historical unbelievable obstruction” from Democratic senators is to blame for the hundreds of jobs throughout the federal government which Trump’s administration has not yet filled.
In fact, the White House has nominated only 24 people — 22 of whom have been confirmed — of 553 key appointments that require Senate confirmation, according to a Politico report published earlier in April.
To Scare Dems, Trump Threatens to Light Himself On Fire
Looks like it's gunna be Le Pen in a major landslide, eh?

A HUNDRED DAYS OF TRUMP
On April 29th, Donald Trump will have occupied the Oval Office for a hundred days. For most people, the luxury of living in a relatively stable democracy is the luxury of not following politics with a nerve-racked constancy. Trump does not afford this. His Presidency has become the demoralizing daily obsession of anyone concerned with global security, the vitality of the natural world, the national health, constitutionalism, civil rights, criminal justice, a free press, science, public education, and the distinction between fact and its opposite. The hundred-day marker is never an entirely reliable indicator of a four-year term, but it’s worth remembering that Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama were among those who came to office at a moment of national crisis and had the discipline, the preparation, and the rigor to set an entirely new course. Impulsive, egocentric, and mendacious, Trump has, in the same span, set fire to the integrity of his office.
Le Pen, Macron win top two places in French presidential election
In Hénin-Beaumont, Le Pen's heartland, crowds of supporters chanted "Marine president" and waved tricolor flags. Seconds before the results were announced, they were singing the national anthem, La Marseillaise.
The words most used to describe the election were “historic” and “unprecedented.” The unheard of field of 11 candidates included a former sheep farmer, two Trotskyists and man who wants to colonize Mars.
The representative of the ruling Socialist Party, Benoît Hamon, suffered a humiliating defeat, finishing in fifth place with just 6.1% of the vote. There was a virtual tie for third place, with François Fillon of the opposition conservative Les Républicains and the far leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon hovering at 19.5%.
Le Pen voted in her northern heartland, the former coal mining town of Hénin-Beaumont, which is governed by mayor who is a member of her National Front (FN) party and where she has a second home.
While she was inside the polling station, a dozen members of the feminist activist group FEMEN, known for their topless protests, turned up wearing Donald Trump and Le Pen masks and with Team Marine written across their chests.
After the result that was announced at 8 p.m. local time (11 a.m. PDT) after the closing of the last polling stations, Le Pen was due to address journalists in Hénin-Beaumont.
"What the polls don't show is the 'shy vote'; these are people who still won't say they will vote for the FN. It doesn't mean they won't vote, it means they won't say. We are slowly moving towards a stage where people are no longer ashamed to say they voted FN, they are proud."
