The weather in Washington DC is ugly; the flag on my neighbour's porch drips with rain. The TV is loud: everyone in news talks in capital letters nowadays. "THE MIDTERMS ARE ON AND IT'S A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP!" Fox says he's our last hope. MSNBC says he's the Antichrist. I wonder if Trump would be doing better if he wasn't Trump.
