Michael Moore’s been saying the same thing, Dave. Trump started out wanting to be in a better negotiating position with NBC. He figured if his own ratings were through the roof, NBC would have to give him more money. That’s how he came up with being a Republican candidate for the presidency. Who in their right mind would think he’d win? Obviously, he didn’t, but he’s since had an epiphany. He mentioned the other night that he’s “tapped into” something. He’s found what America wants. Imagine promoting yourself as a racist bigot and finding it’s what voters want. I’m sure he’s as flummoxed as everybody else.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
