I am so tired of the time suck all the drama has created

Summer of 2016, we were traveling with friends and she was fascinated with the pre-election behavior of Trump. I kept saying to ignore it, no one can take him seriously and after November we will never see him again.
And here we are, three years later, and it is and has been all this time, impossible for me to ignore what has happened, and the creature that has emerged in full from the candidate. I have found it very difficult to ignore the daily outrages and frustrations, so have spent an inordinate amount of time checking news, reading my favorite pundits, watching a few news shows. Nostalgic for a time when we could go about our lives, secure in the knowledge that at least parts of our government were taking care of business in the interest of the country. Thanks, Obama.
Now this trial is starting and we are getting into the full swing of elections that will determine whether our country and likely the world will survive. This is not how I planned to spend retirement.

1. That's the real damage

 

Win or lose, chaos is the point.

3. I'm tired of trump drama, too, but this chapter of this impeached

president is a good chapter. The right side won, he lost bigly! Who knows what the entire story will be. If our country doesn’t crumble under the weight of the current presidential drama, things will calm.

Like you, I long for a news day without the orange one lying to me. Hang in there and enjoy the win.
