That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! Today marks six months of the Donald Trump presidency. I have to give extreme thanks to the administration for making my job so much easier. Seriously, a lot of material just sort of falls out of the sky into my lap these days. Sometimes the worse things get, the better they get. A door closes and a window opens. Just three and a half more years of this and we will probably elect someone worse. Never underestimate what the American voter is capable of doing next. All I can say is that this country can make it through anything, and I am reassured of that when you all remember to always keep on sending the love!
