Today the
postman brought
me the ass-end
of Donuts T®ump.

him. "I wanted to
see the end of that
ass T®ump, not this
crappy T®umped-

A line from Stephen Hawking

By day, I'm an online
media buyer, grew up
with a passion & talent
for playing baseball.

On Fridays I like to shoot
pool or collect oral histories
at cocktail parties. I looked
in the toy section & saw

a sampling of narratives
drawn from doing jet
set events. Physics is
nearing its end; but I

have a similar juicer at
home that makes peanut
butter. There are things still
to prove. Looking inwards

at ourselves may influence
a child's perception of self
identity, but where are
the environmental benefits?

During a meeting with state governors at the White House, Trump said he would have felt compelled to confront the shooter personally, had he been on the scene.

“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” says the man who needed a golf cart to keep up with the other world leaders at the G7 summit.
