How does one write about the era of Trump, which begins on January 20, 2017? Does one take the bitter, this-country-will-never-be-the-same again point of view? Does one take the perspective that whatever Trump does, it will be better than what has occurred in, like, forever? Shall I write with fear and loathing, or become the next poli-comedy internet sensation, cherry-picking what may be the easiest material in the history of comedy?
For your sake and mine, I decided against all of those. Instead, this site will be a mostly-daily diary – probably Monday through Friday – of the U.S. during the Trump presidency. There is ample opportunity to turn the snark up to eleven, but that is not my intent. Seeing that everyone will have an opinion – just like everyone has an, er, nose – I will not go there, as much as every cell in my body wants to. Instead I will do my best to keep it straight, and will link to the articles that I think are relevant.
If this blog evolves in any way, I will be sure to let you know. Until then, watch for the Day Zero post, to occur after the POTUS Inauguration.
Thanks for reading!
