It’s Inauguration Day. If you don’t feel embarrassed, angry, or a little bit sad, let’s see how you’ll feel 100 days from now, or in six months, or a year. Because if you honestly believe that Trump will Make America Great Again for anybody other than fellow rich people, you’re in for a shock.
“There’s a sucker born every minute” is a phrase often attributed to P. T. Barnum, but it was actually one of his competitors who said it. Regardless, it feels appropriate now. Coinciding with the start of the Trump administration is the news that the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is closing its curtains after 146 years in business. If you feel sad for all the clowns who have lost their jobs, just know that the biggest clown will soon take the world stage.
Most of us can’t afford to pack up and leave the country, so we’re gonna have to stick it out. Maybe watch a few movies and hope we don’t get seriously sick without medical insurance.
