Hello and welcome to 2018. Surprisingly, Donald Trump is still president. I can honestly say that I never saw that coming. Hell, I never saw Donald Trump becoming president happening. But he did, and here we are. It’s been a bit of a doozy over the last couple of days, and, quite frankly, 2018 is off to an interesting start.
On New Years, starting the year right, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un tweeted that he had a nuclear button on his desk at all times. Being the diplomatic man Donald Trump is, he took to twitter as well. He responded saying, “North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”(source). Not only is Trump inept at being President, but also inept at speaking the truth (shocking, right?). First of all, there is no such thing as a nuclear button. Secondly, why brag? Why do you fuel the flames and put us all at risk?
On January 3, in an article in New York Magazine, Michael Wolff explained that Trump didn’t want to be the president. Well, Mr. President, neither did the majority of America, so I guess we have something in common. Even Steve Bannon, whose Breitbart Media praised Donald Trump and ran tabloids in support of him, said that when he came onto the scene, it was a “broke-dick campaign.” No one, not us, not Donald Trump’s staffers, not Donald Trump himself, expected that they could win the 2016 Presidential election. However, he did, and here we are. (source)
If 2018 is anything like 2017, and it seems like it will be, and possibly worse, then please buckle up, because this is sure to be a wild ride.
