(Melody: “The Twelve Days of Christmas”)
On the fourth day til Post-Trump, my true love gave to me
Four stunning flops
Three new indictments
Two votes of impeachment
And a sweet card in a green tree.
*check in tomorrow for Day five of “The Ten Days til Post-Trump”–a little ditty to raise spirits and bring hope in this, the darkest of seasons.
 Here are four from today’s news (more to come!): 1. “Arctic Oil Drilling Plans Suffer ‘Stunning Setback’ as Almost ‘No One Shows Up’ For the Sale”, https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/no-one-buys-alaska-arctic-oil-drilling-leases/?utm_campaign=newsletters&utm_medium=weekly_mailout&utm_source=12-01-2021 . This is heartening!
2. “Shopify Removes Trump Stores,” https://www.newsmax.com/politics/shopify-trump-organization-online-store-retail/2021/01/07/id/1004659/ . This follows his banishment from Twitter, but also is effective because it deprives him of money from his online efforts to sell vulgar Tshirts, red MAGA caps and other essential stuff for overturning the government.
3. “PGA Tournament Dumps Trump”, https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2021/01/pga-dumps-trump-as-the-gop-brand-takes-a-hit-in-corporate-america The ever-sporty Dumpster will have to find somewhere else to t-off, if he wants to play with the big boys. As for playing host, looks like they will be very small events from now on.
4. “Patriots coach Bill Belichick declines to accept Medal of Freedom from Trump,” https://www.cbsnews.com/news/bill-belichick-declines-presidential-medal-of-freedom-trump/ Ouch! I thought they were BFF.
