Just thought I’d be the first to say it and get it over with.
Tuesday evening, a friend at Howie’s showed me an email he’d gotten from his sister in Indiana, who earlier that day had visited their mother, who has Alzheimer’s. The sister reported that she had told their mother that she had to go vote and added, “Did you know Trump is running for president?”
“President of what?”
“Of the United States.”
The idea of a Trump presidency was enough to give my friend’s mother a moment of perfect, albeit horrified lucidity.
