Pound cake in the age of Trump

My president is crazy, but my pound cake is sweet.

The phrase, “I'll see you in court” is a hallmark of narcissistic lunatics. It is the last gasp of the entitled when faced with the reality that things don’t have to go their way. It is the idiomatic equivalent of screaming “I was told by Apple Care” in the Apple store. Our president, who lambasted the Judicial branch of government this week for not bending to his whims, fired off an all caps tweet with the phrase following a decision from the ninth circuit to deny the administration an emergency stay of their disastrous immigration ban.

These are the times we are living in. Will sane people survive? Who knows! When Kellyanne Conway, the counselor to the president, went on TV this week to endorse the tacky products of the president’s daughter, I was sure I’d have a coniption. But alas, here I am.

The only bit of solace one can take from the current administration is how unbelievably bad everyone is at their jobs. No one on the White House staff should endorse the president’s children’s products on TV. They also shouldn’t invite random disk jockeys to White House press hearings, or draft executive orders without informing the departments affected. Trump supporters, whoever they are, surely can't go on like this forever. Who in their right mind could want a president who acts so obviously like a petulant child? I could be giving the American people too much credit. We've certainly done worse.

ANYWAY, to take your mind off all of this, I’d like to suggest baking this absurdly sweet pound cake. If you’re health conscious, don’t worry about it. How much time do we really have left on Earth anyway?
