What I’m wondering, along with so many of my fellow Americans, is how we wound up being led by a guy like Donald J. Trump, a man whose hair-do alone should have alienated enough voters to keep him from being elected to anything.
All the time I’d been dead—or in heaven, if that was, most improbably, where I had wound up—I also never heard the names Kellyanne Conway, Paul Manafort, Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Mike Pence, or Paul Ryan.

Why would anyone look beyond Fox News for information, or seek opinions from any sources other Sean Hannity, or no-nonsense news guys like Hugh Hewitt, Alex Jones, or Rush Limbaugh?
Since we are now led by a man who asserts that “no one has more respect for women” than he, it seemed like a good time to share a little of the history of sneering and disregard for women left behind by a variety of men.
Jaime O’Neill: Despite the fact that Trump assured us that, unlike Obama, he wouldn’t have time to play golf if he were elected, the new POTUS has demonstrated that he has the leisure to jet down to his place in Florida each weekend for time on the links.
