Twenty-one has actually started, and God knows what it has in store for us after the Capitol was stormed by the President’s “troops”. But unless we’re in some way beyond belief, The Donald is actually leaving the White House soon and, as much as I hate to admit it, in weird ways, we’re going to miss him.
