The 2016 Presidential Election was draining, and I anticipate the next four years will be Hell.

The Bull in the proverbial China Shop is now running wild in White House.

On Election Nite I heard the voices of many undecided voters pondering the question, “How bad can it get?”

There won’t be enough ice cream to make this situation palatable. We must remain focused and alert.

Remember: we are facing the King of Distraction.

Thus far, Trump, seems to have broken the record for creating anxiety, anger, panic, conflict, depression.

I feel like I am watching a bad scifi movie, vintage Godzilla.

Other times, I imagine Trump is in a giant playroom playing a game called Push Their Buttons.

And when we are too exhausted to move, the real game starts!

We have been played by the King of Distraction.
