    Although Michael Flynn was only Donald Trump’s national security adviser for 23 days, his rise, fall and resurgence — sort of — function as fitting bookends of Trump’s four years in the White House. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains why this often-overlooked character deserves more attention.
