|My "AHAH" moment|
I had a revelation yesterday while listening to NPR. The revelation came to me following two news reports that together, made me confident that I knew what the Leader of the Free World is doing during those long nights awake and alone in the White House.
While other people are asleep, he is awake, (at the WH or at one of his golf courses, or at Mar a Lago—but rarely in his gold filigreed New York penthouse-showroom where his wife and young son live) and now I know what he is doing there, all alone, in the dark.

To statues, yes.
You see, he may be able to admit (to himself alone) that he has at least a few things to learn about presidenting. After all, it was only recently that he discovered that his new job is harder than he thought it would be. Awwww. So sad.

of me after my presidency. I'll probably
go down in history as one of the best,
maybe THE best president this
country has ever had."

His favorite verbs are “to See” as in “You will see me bring the jobs back to coal country; “to Hear” as in “when I hear that Congress has failed yet again to destroy ObamaCare as they promised;” and “to Tell” or “to Say” as in “I’m telling you right now, nobody has ever stood up for America like I do”

And “As I said to Putin, thank you for helping us trim our budget by sending our diplomats home from Russia.” Now, compare those standard favorites with the underlined words in the first paragraph. It’s obvious, isn't it? The Drumpf has been spending time with one of those “Learn One New Word a Day” phone apps!
Putin’s Most Avid Admirer has learned a New Verb — “to Utter.” I utter, you utter, he utters, they utter, we utter….” (He has not yet tackled the present, past and future perfect conjugations—is uttering, will have uttered and would have been uttering. These will follow in a much later more advanced chapter, no doubt.)

The player may 1) poke the bear with a sharp stick, which you and I can foresee will only serve to piss off the bear, or 2) yell insults to the bear which visibly cling to the bear’s thick coat like a noisy swarm of wasps, or 3) the player can choose someone else (for example, someone who knows how to handle angry bears) to take the lead in calming the bear. An unlikely outcome, I’m afraid. Allowing someone else to be the center of attention is just not palatable to our Limelight Loving Nighttime App Explorer.
