Another milestone! Menopause, first day of Year 19. Sigh.
Nonsense in Politico this morning: It says some of my friends don’t want me to run. Who, friends who don’t want to be friends when I win? Puh-leeze! This is a lock. If only I had the press on my side! Ha! Ha! (Hashtag snark. Is that how you write it?)
“To Do When I Am President” List: Why do we still make staples out of metal? Surely we are running out of that. Everyone must fold over the corners and tear! Hashtag savetheplanet
Must stop at airport gift shop to buy hoodie for Putin, in case he ever shows up shirtless. (Just between us, though, dear diary… mama likey!)
Headed to Iowa today for DUH reasons: You want the hillbilly vote, you have to do the hillbilly dance. Locking myself in the airplane bathroom to practice my inbred-cracker accent. Y‘all. Shotgun.
