It’s about time I finally write about the giant elephant in the room. You know, the orange one, with hair that resembles an awkwardly groomed troll doll doused with enough hairspray to ignite Washington into flames.
I tried to keep this blog unscathed from discussion of the latest hit reality show “American Politics.” While there is certainly no one chomping at the bit to get their news fix from this site, nor is anyone labeling me as an established member of the media, even lowly aspiring student journalists have a responsibility to remain impartial.

Fake news. Tax returns. Putin. Immigrants. Meatloaf Dinners.
It's clear to me now, this shit isn't going to end. And it makes me want to bury every connection I have with the outside world.
This worst part about Twitter is that it's a new Presidential norm.
It’s hard to uphold a rugged persona when you're on social media as much as a heartbroken thirteen year-old.
Powerful people are supposed to be unfamiliar with social media.
(see: my grandfather, Bill Belichick, Tina Fey, etc.).
