A ho-ho-ho and away we go.

I thought when I woke up this morning I would be living under a new president.

How wrong I was. We can’t have two presidents at the same time. Trump refuses to leave the White House (I don’t blame him. It’s rent free and comes with full service.)

Oh well. I’ll have to live another day with Trump as my president. Barring any unforeseen accidents, I think I can make it.

In the world outside my apartment, there is lots going on. The coronavirus is still biting people who have not heeded all the warnings and suggestions on how not to expose themselves.

Our stupid (an apt description of someone who does not accept proven facts) president calls them a hoax). He’s making another speech to crowds standing elbow to elbow, a Fauci no-no. Unmaksed, he proudly tells his audience how durable he is.

He survived his recent bout with the coronavirus. Like the legendary Pied Piper, he is leading his flock to sure destruction. He is a leader who misleads. “Woe is us.”

Our country has been imperiled many times and survived. I believe we will again. Future history will record our efforts.

P.S. “Dump Trump” (with or without a mask).
