    • The Real Threat To Europe Is Neither America Nor Russia
      So, much hysteria over Donald Trump’s disdain for NATO and his dislike of Germany. Andrea Merkel said that Germany no longer has a reliable American partner. Oh dear. Oh dear.

It genuinely feels as though the country was highjacked on Election Day last November. The party that took over does not represent the majority of Americans and we’re really starting to resent it.

They’re beginning to be very unpopular. No one I know wants to admit they voted for Trump anymore. It’s bad government but could make for wildly entertaining reality TV. Trump makes an excellent villain. He’s the kind of rich evil guy on soap operas who is always reeling in sweet young things while the audience cringes at her stupidity and screams at her to watch out. 

She never listens but eventually wakes up when he gets caught red handed or in flagrante delicto or one of those other delicious Romance language phrases. 

Then the denouement. The catharsis. The older but wiser. 

Bring. It. On.
