It is 11 months later. Making America Great Again sounded like a good enough rallying cry to a great many (but not majority) of our fellow citizens to put the man in the White House. The POTUS, with the modesty we have come to expect, reminisces about the many lavish state banquets thrown by his friends on his visits around the world. (They were unbelievable!)
This busy schedule apparently was the reason he could not revisit the territory of Puerto Rico, still not recovered months after suffering the effects of a devastating hurricane. With no running water or food for the starving population, the expected aid comes from charitable organizations. People are anxiously awaiting a touchdown by Air Force One so the Great One can throw more rolls of paper towels to the people he once called ingrates.
Well, good luck with your wishes for a happy New Year, unless you are resident at the Mar-a-Lago.
