  1. I would have pulled all of the hair on my head out by now without the refuge of political satire during the age of Trump.

    In 2017, I find myself thankful on a daily basis for political satire and our free press……it no longer requires much imagination to foresee what our world would be without it.

    You folks seem to really like foaming at the mouth and shouting the world is ending. Why not simply acknowledge you message did not result in your candidate being elected despite her stealing the nomination with the collusion of the DNC. You have congressional elections coming up in two years and another try two years after that. How about coming up with policies that address the concerns of people who did not vote for Hillary?
