If you ask me, I wait up every morning and go, “Good Lord, what’s happened now”, and I think a lot of Americans wonder what’s going on. If you ask Donald Trump, he’ll say he’s been brilliant….

He’s got the highest unpopularity ratings of any President in 70 years, but the key is that 30%, 35% who support him, they’re pretty diehard. As long as America is divided and polarized, he’s gonna play to that base and hope that gets him through.

And to the question, “Will we Be celebrating the second year of Donald Trump as President?”

We’ll be celebrating he’s gone.
