We're back from our holiday hiatus. Donald Trump made very intemperate tweets aimed at North Korea's leader, to much DC condemnation. But, oddly, Kim Jong-Un subsequently opened a hotline to Seoul. The new, Comey-free FBI appears to be investigating Hillary Clinton again. Steve Bannon made himself unpopular with the Trump Administration, based on some quotes from a new book that updates the narrative of the 2016 campaign to inform us that Donald Trump NEVER wanted to win the election he colluded with the Russians to win. Oregonians are facing the existential terror of filling the gas tanks of their own cars, while Iranians are facing the existential terror of standing up to a murderous, repressive government. Which kind of puts things in perspective, really.
