So Long, Farewell, Aufwiedersehn, Goodbye!

We’ve almost made it. Four awful years with President Trump whittled down to barely three remaining days.

Here are some of the people I won’t miss:

De facto advisors like the MyPillow guy and the Fox and Friends team.

Pseudo-lawyers like Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.

Nepotistic heirs, you know their names.

Deceitful press secretaries like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kayleigh McEnany.

Destructive cabinet secretaries like Betsy DeVos and Mike Pompeo.

Kayleigh McEnany interviews Betsy DeVos at the 2017 CPAC Convention.

Here are some of the qualities I won’t miss:

A president who separated families.

A president who ignored science.

A president who lied.

A president who mocked his people.

A president who fostered white supremacy.

White supremacist protesters in Charlottesville, VA, August 2017.

When Joe Biden takes the oath of office at noon on Wednesday, January 20, we get to start over. Sort of. We can’t forget the last four years or banish these unfortunate characters and the values they espoused, but we can expect a new standard of governing. And with it, a renewed pride in our country.

The American flag.

I write once again, hoping to make sense of a world on the edge. Humor helps. So does my family. And, of course, there’s always another weed to pull.
