2018! We begin our second century under the Trump administration—though that’s barely 30 in golf-years. Is it good when Donald takes his post Fox and Friends dotardisms out on golf balls rather than us and the rest of the world?
David Waldman begins his In Memoriam section by reminding us the counter has already begun to roll for this year in “gun deaths”, often by caused by bullets coming out of the guns, even during times of play and joy.
Cuba, Indonesia, Sierra Leone and North Carolina score about the same as functioning democracies. An Alabama newspaper publisher “regrets” spanking women reporters as he was a “very young man” in his 40s.
Even while busy flouting national, international and constitutional rules, laws and norms, Trump took time to stick his thumb in the eye of the Palm Beach town council.
Armando rings in the new year, by ringing into Skype to help us put together a 2018 agenda, including making things happen about emoluments, which Trump has so far willed away the way he holds planes up in the sky. Armando reminds us that the Russia inquiry began before the Dossier.
