Good morning. ⛅ We’re all a little more relieved, right? Maybe? Anyway, I hope so.
This week, enjoy these stories about the Trump Presidential LIE- brary, John Waters is donating his collection to a museum as long as they name the bathrooms after him, and reviews of Clyfford Still, Karen Russo, Sophia Narrett, and others.

With Donald Trump’s failure to win reelection officially confirmed, it’s time for Trump to start thinking about his legacy. Fortunately, the Donald J. Trump Library is already up and running.
Designed by an anonymous New York-based architect, the digital library has something to highlight all parts of Trump’s run in the Oval Office, including a COVID memorial, jail cells, and disinformation.
