With all the festivities going down in December, it always takes a while for the new year to actually kick in. Well, this past week was a rude reminder that 2017 is officially here:
Republicans worked their tails off after midnight to start repealing the Affordable Care Act.
Jeff Sessions’ attorney general confirmation hearing began. Sessions once reportedly joked that he thought the KKK were “OK” until he learned that they smoked pot.
And then there was Trump being Trump. After an unsubstantiated document was leaked claiming the PEOTUS had hired prostitutes to perform “golden showers” in front of him, he went on a rampage, calling out CNN reporter Jim Acosta as “fake news” while conveniently sidestepping allegations that Russia might have compromising material on him. (He also weaseled out of his ridiculous promise that Mexico would pay for that Wall and took a shot at Meryl Streep after she criticized him during her Golden Globes speech.) And Trump is still a week away from being sworn in. Yeah, it’s only gonna get worse before it gets any better. But at least there are always movies to take our minds off all this crap.
