I was thinking this morning, Ryan, about in the age of Trump just how quickly all of us in life are becoming bored and exhausted by events. With Trump’s lies sending him and the world in different directions every ten seconds, I notice that even the Democratic leaders in Congress are beginning to shown signs of resignation, as they attempt to stumble on through the endless chaos of Trump world.

I have said it many times, the human ego hates change. I therefore expect to hear, by the time of the 2020 election, a collective national scream — stop already. I’m hoping that will bring an end to the Trump craziness, though I fully expect him to start some wars at the last minute as a desperate bid to hold onto power.

In conclusion, if Umair, unlike the rest of us, doesn’t soon run out of steam, I will conclude that he’s absolutely not a real person, Ryan. I do, however, love your casual insight regarding Umair.
