Melania has one foot out the door

Melania Trump is on record saying she hates decorating for Christmas and thinks it’s a huge pain in the ass. Sources close to Melania are also saying, very much off-the-record, that she considers her marriage to Donald Trump “over.” The odds are very much against it — but will the Melania Trump Christmas 2020 theme have anything to do with the seemingly inexorable split?

The Trump event at Four Seasons Total Landscaping was the perfect end to his presidency

It was the absolute best and most fitting way for Donald Trump’s presidency to end. And it didn’t involve any electoral drama, political intrigue, or embarrassing White House standoffs.

Kanye doesn’t think Jared Kushner is manipulating him

If you needed further proof that Kanye West’s 2020 campaign is only a bizarre ego trip, you’ll find it in the latest feature on the would-be presidential spoiler.

Kanye’s 2020 presidential run is almost a mathematical impossibility

Thanks to a supremely late entry and a campaign equal parts secretive and disorganized, Kanye West is all but eliminated from the 2020 US presidential race as even a serious spoiler. It all comes down to ballot access — and where is Kanye on the ballot? As of this writing, he’s managed to be included in only three states. And, by contrast, there’s a long and growing list of states where Kanye can no longer get on the ballot at all.
