Dave Barry’s Year in Review: 2016 — What the ... ?

This a bit long, but is funny as hell for those who enjoy satire. One excerpt:

After all that, the American people, looking for a leader, ended up with a choice between ointment and suppository. The fall campaign was an unending national nightmare, broadcast relentlessly on cable TV. CNN told us over and over that Donald Trump was a colossally ignorant, narcissistic, out-of-control sex-predator buffoon; Fox News countered that Hillary Clinton was a greedy, corrupt, coldly calculating liar of massive ambition and minimal accomplishment. And in our hearts we knew the awful truth: They were both right.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    I never thought, as CNN said, that Trump "was a colossally ignorant, narcissistic, out-of-control sex-predator buffoon;" I just thought he was cool, deliberately saying what he had to do to defeat the mainstream media and the GOP establishment. Fox was right about Hillary though.
