BTRTN September 2017 Month in Review: Trump's Best Month Yet. Really???

The numbers say so, but it is hard to fathom:

"North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. The efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare died a new death, and this time for good. The United States failed to support adequately Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Jared Kushner and other White House officials were discovered to have created private email accounts to conduct government business after the election. Trumpís candidate of choice in the Alabama Senate run-off election, Luther Strange, for whom he personally campaigned, was thrashed. Robert Muellerís investigation heated up considerably and is now clearly focused on Trump himself. And Secretary of Health Human Services Tom Price was forced to resign after proving himself to be the Master of the Swamp with profligate spending of taxpayer money on private jets.

And this was a good month for Donald Trump.

How so, you may ask? Quite simply, for the first time, Trump managed to achieve an increase in his approval rating, after seven months of steady declines; it edged back up to 40%, matching June and July levels, after dipping to 38% in a hideous August."
