I don't usually take pleasure in someone else's pain, BUT ... [View all]

… I seem to be doing that a lot these days.

When I know Donald Trump can’t sleep, it makes me sleep peacefully.

When I know Donald Trump is seething with rage, it makes me calm.

When I know Donald Trump is lashing out in fear, it makes me joyful.

When I know Donald Trump is languishing in loneliness and isolation, I rejoice in the feeling of being surrounded by millions of my fellow decent, moral, ethical Americans.

I know that it may take months, even years, for all of Donald Trump’s crimes to be exposed, and for him to finally be held accountable.

But the fact that he is staring into the dark abyss that his life is about to become, along with his realization that there is no means of escape from everything about to befall him – well, I’m good with that for now.
