A round up of Trumpian events 🖕🍊🤡

Yeah, the guy was somewhat of an ass, to be honest (though not too bad, if you avoided politics). It’s weird he ended up working in an archive among some pretty progressive folks. I think the archivist I worked for had an often contentious working relationship with the guy.

My bet is that he doesn’t even vaguely remember it, and that this was actually a talking point that came out of communications people. That this is the quality of staff he’s surrounding himself with. (It has a vague whiff of Stephen “that plaque was added later” Miller petulance to it)
