It's nice to be back home. I hope y'all enjoyed your bun and cheese (if you are Jamaican) and your chocolate Easter eggs.
A lot has been happening in the world. The two world leaders with the worst haircuts in the history of world leaders, have damn near brought us to the brink of World War III.
Our president has threatened North Korea with a preemptive strike if they don't chill out, and we even dropped the "mother of all bombs" to make a point. Sadly, though, it didn't seem to have an impact on the North Koreans. Not even all those war ships steaming to the Korean Peninsula seems to be scaring the little bad haircut guy.
The American press, as is always the case, have been getting this one wrong all along. They have been declaring the North Korean missile test a failure, which it probably was, but that's not the point. The point is that there was a test. Even after trump all but dared Kim Jong-un to test another missile.
Apparently the blustering didn't work, because the North Koreans were not deterred. Dare I say it? "trump blinked first".
I am not sure how this is a fight that trump believes that he can win. I mean when you are dealing with a suicidal maniac you don't try to play chicken with him. Unless, of course, trump himself has some mental issues. Which, if true, might make this the last Easter Sunday many of us will spend here on earth.
Tax day will be on us in a couple of days, for all of you have not done your taxes you are running out of time.
This is also a good time to remind everyone that we have still not seen the president's tax returns. I suspect that this so called audit will last at least four more years.
Folks protested about it this weekend, and the president was no pleased.
"President Donald Trump on Twitter Sunday lashed out against citizens who'd taken to the streets to exercise their First Amendment rights.
While claiming that thousands of people who on Saturday demanded Trump finally release his full tax returns were "paid" protesters, Trump tweeted, "The election is over!"
"Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies," Trump tweeted a day after thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in more than 150 cities across the country.
An hour after wishing his 28 million followers a Happy Easter, Trump hailed his November win and called out those making his undisclosed tax history an issue. "
Someone should have told him that the election was over when he was doing his redneck victory tour.
Anyway, it's time for our orange haired leader to put down the golf clubs, delete his twitter account, and start focusing on the stuff happening in the world.
I think I speak for most people when I say that staying alive and avoiding a global catastrophe is what's most important to me right now. And seeing the president's tax returns would give us confidence in our commander in chief and would allow us to trust him a little bit more.
Let's face it, the man might lead us into a serious war any day now, the least he could do is show us his damn tax returns.
