News, I am sad to report, continues to occur. And it is even worse than I thought. If US President Donald Trump's press appearances on Wednesday and yesterday were any indication, Americans are still trapped inside the 2016 election and will stay trapped there forever.

It is the 'Groundhog Day' edition of Hell. We will stay trapped in here until Mr Trump learns his lesson, or we learn not to be so free with Hitler comparisons, or something.

Mr Trump is very upset with the bad job that the US government is doing, and he is finally going to do something about it: He will run for president. It's about time. Whoever is in there now is terrible, and we can't have this any longer!
