When I first thought about writing a blog, the least original idea of our time, I wanted to comment on the world under Donald Trump with an glance at my international friends. This didn’t come to pass. Maybe it was the built in depression factor. Maybe it is because President Trump writes so much about himself that only commentary is possible. He doesn’t allow outside originality as his own creation story obscures any others. I think it just wasn’t any fun. This restart will use my class “American Politics Thru Film” as a structure but will also contain links, personal observations, book lists, and more.
