Someone reminded me of what I was saying when I first started commenting here, eight or nine years ago: The only time the Very Serious People are willing to give a black man or a woman a job is when they’re desperate for someone to come in and clean up the mess they’ve made. So maybe there’s a shot we’ll finally get the first woman President in 2020 — assuming there’s an election then, or a nation capable of holding one.
Apart from organizing among ourselves in preparation for the upcoming debacle, what’s on the agenda for the evening?

I kinda hope Melania and Barron do stay in the NY penthouse — it’s not like they’re responsible for the old man’s upcoming implosion, and if half the latest stories about his inner circle / older kids are true, thing may go full-metal Game of Thrones at the Trump White House before next summer.
THANKS, REPUBLICANS! YOU BUILT THIS!
