Sorry.  Klepper is remarkable for his comic interviews of hapless Trump supporters.  Most are stunningly uninformed and unaware of recent events and they barely manage to watch Fox News.

I wish he lived closer as the weeds here are out of control.  The weather has been lovely and the weeds are super happy.  At least it rained a few days ago so they're not so hard to pull.

We're just breaking in the grandson as a lawn mower. Higher rates than I remember from my youth, but saves me putting sun tan lotion on!

 ;D ;D

Not too bad in the garden but then again my better half feeds a lot to the tortoise ( note to oneself, tortoise needs a out door spce this year)

I'm properly ahead of the curve with this "no mow May" idea. I started June last year.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

If our lawn didn't just die off due to lack of water in the summer, I'd hire a team of goats, or should that be herd?  Sometimes when one drives onto the local expressway, there are goats on the hillsides chomping on the vegetation. They were hired specifically for that purpose.  It's kind of fun to see them there "working."

Just had a spat with the local council who have just decided to mow adjacent to our bridlepath, thus removing so many flowering plants that it was worth a few minutes to see and hear the bees .

To someone who didn't know German, that sounds like "a bee field is a bee field!"

Aber, das Befehl gefällt mir nicht!

Based on some casual research I did yesterday, there is nothing official preventing a felon from running for president. So our nightmare isn't over yet.

There is nothing obliging hundreds (thousands?) of politicians to continue to support a felon, or tens of millions of people to vote for a felon, though: people never cease to amaze me.

I am reminded of a quote that I once heard (I have changed the gender, to protect the identity of the speaker):

"He shouldnt be allowed to run...If he wins, it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis. In that situation, we could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and, ultimately, a criminal trial. It would grind government to a halt"

As far as I know, he can run for President as a convicted murderer as long as he was born in the U.S. and is at least 35 years old.  I am dismayed by the people who choose to look the other way and insist that the jury that sat through 4 weeks of tedious testimony (instead of living their daily lives as normal) were somehow corrupt and the justice system that should apply equally to everyone, in this case, was rigged against Trump. 

I am so tired of his whining and unending claims of victimization.  Listening to the endless justifications of his supporters, really makes me think that people are not fundamentally good or clever.  They're either as bad as he is or they're stupid.  Neither choice is particularly attractive as an option, but there you have it.  It's a cult based on the worship of an authoritarian personality.

USA already split in Opinion may well in fact split.

In my opinion, if Trump were to run for a political seat here in the U.K., he'd romp home.

This isn't an American thing, it's a "world gone bonkers" thing.
