Today, feeling the effects of cold weather, the political climate, and the subject matter of my last several posts, I find that my frame of mind is just a wee bit on the sad side. So, I thought it might do me good to write about something other than Trump and the lunacy that surrounds him. I wanted to write about anything other than Trump. Something upbeat and positive. But what? Every single headline on The Washington Post’s website has that ugly word, Trump, in it:
Trump’s national security adviser shared secrets without permission, files show
Trump recruits army of business titans to do battle in Washington
Trump displays unorthodox style in how he made State Department pick
Pence plays role of Trump’s ambassador to nervous Republicans
Sigh. Okay, moving on to The Guardian. Human tragedies in Aleppo; genocide in South Sudan; Duterte personally killing criminals; China wary of Rex Tillerson; Yemen airstrikes; Putin’s new ghetto …
New York Times …. Again, Trump is in every single bloomin’ headline.
Report: Women In Syria’s Aleppo Choosing Suicide To Escape Rape
Assad’s Forces Enter Syria’s Aleppo And Begins Executing Civilians
Trump Owes At Least $3B To Creditors, Including Chinese Gov’t
Ah wait! Here’s one about a 73-year-old man … with dementia … shot 7 times by a police officer. Sigh.
Okay, I give up. It is obvious that there is a media conspiracy to keep my mood from improving today, so I shall now return to my laundry, grocery list-making, and perhaps go clean some windows or something equally fun. Since I have cheated you out of a coherent blog post, here are a few funnies for your viewing pleasure.
