January, you’ve really knocked it out of the park. In addition to Kimye possibly splitting up and Tanya Roberts being accidentally declared dead before actually dying, the President of the United States has been impeached for the second time and he can’t even rant about it on Twitter.

I felt a weird sense of hysteria mixed with relief when Donald Trump was, at long last, given a permanent ban from Twitter due to the risk of further incitement of violence, following last week’s Capitol riots.
