Donald Trump Is Making Me Fat

I wrote this post back in November and lo’ and behold, on Wednesday of this week, NPR did a segment about people complaining that the state of American politics was making them gain weight, what they are colloquially calling, The Trump 10.

Donald Trump Is Making Me Fat

Like most humans, I am a creature of habit. I get up, go to the gym, go to work, come home, eat dinner with the family, walk the dog, write, stay up way too late, go to bed and do it again.

    Sending love & best wishes! ⭐

  4. I loves that post! I agree – never underestimate the power of metta, intention and a united group of people. Ditch the bitching – it just produces more stuff to moan about. Take the positive tack, there is always another route.

  5. Trump isn’t making me fat. He is, however,
    making me sick.

    PJ, your article from November is a good one. Very sensible advice.
