      He shuffled across the middle of the court, stumbled, realized too late he couldn’t reach the ball, switched his racquet from his right to his left hand, lunged and swung weakly as he tumbled to the hard-tru.

        We recently learned that President Donald Trump uses the term “fake news” to disparage news about his administration that he just doesn’t like.
