I actually had a “Karen” call me out on the National Mall for being unmasked, and I wasn’t within 40 yards of another person. I “politely” told her she needed a life.

I grade his first week in office a complete disaster and one that sets the stage for what to expect. Unfortunately, what we seem to have is a less benevolent Chauncey Gardner. Hopefully, “there will be growth in the spring.” The question is how much damage can be done before the electorate has a chance in the 2022 elections to reverse this train wreck.
