“What is all this hoopla over the Mueller Report?” Albert asked. “The Attorney General totally exonerated Trump. No collusion, no obstruction.”
“You are such an idiot,” I said. “It’s a good thing we’re not at my place or I’d take an egg and smash it on your head.”
“You’re just longing to see Trump taken down,” Albert said.
“You’re right,” I admitted. “He’s trying to turn our democracy into an autocracy. He’s destroying the environment, and he thinks he’s above the law. Doesn’t any of that annoy you?”
“Actually I’m impressed by him.”
“With lemmings like you, Albert, there’s little hope left for America.”
