Scenes from a marriage

On Air Force One, Melania Trump was watching CNN. Donald Trump was angry:

He raged at his staff for violating a rule that the White House entourage should begin each trip tuned to Fox — his preferred network over what he considers the “fake news” CNN — and caused “a bit of a stir” aboard Air Force One, according to an email obtained by The New York Times. The email, an internal exchange between officials in the White House Military Office and the White House Communications Agency last Thursday, also called for the ordering of two additional televisions to support Beam, a TiVo-like streaming device, to make sure the president and first lady could both watch TV in their separate hotel rooms when they travel.
Rage about television channels, separate bedrooms (each with a television): I’d hate to be a partner in such a marriage.

If you can even call that a marriage...whenever a conservative says that gays and lesbians are a threat to the institution of marriage, I like to point out heterosexuals like the Trumps, who truly are a threat.

So true. I wonder what will happen if it turns out that Trump has paid for one or more abortions through the years. The Republican political consultant Rick Wilson (fiercely anti-Trump) made a cryptic tweet in 2016 about Trump saying “The last call they get to me is ‘Donald, I'm late.’”
