A Song For Donald

What exactly Donald Trump will do after he leaves office other than be a defendant in multiple lawsuits is a matter of conjecture. How much golf can he play without his needed ego boosts?  I am among those who have long suspected that the launching of Trump TV with a starring role for The Donald is a good possibility.  Any star needs a theme song and that is the point/punch line of today’s article.  Let’s explore and laughing is not only allowed; it is encouraged.  Continue reading A Song For Donald
