Today's Open Thread Brought To You By Donald Trump's Open Umbrella.
Hello, and welcome to your Saturday open thread! It's kind of a shitty day today, so let's all just take a deep breath, take care of ourselves, hug our loved ones, and watch this video of Donald Trump trying to get an open umbrella through the door of a plane, and -- upon failing, just leaving said umbrella outside, his umbrella valet nowhere to be found.
Oh, what a whimsical, wacky "silly rich guy!" thing it would have been, had he not just been standing outside of said airplane, talking about how all the Jewish people murdered today were kind of to blame for their own murder, on account of the fact that they didn't have any guns or armed guards at their synagogue. Instead, it just feels like a giant metaphor for not giving a flying shit about literally anything.
The only surprise was that the umbrella did not say "I Don't Care, Do U?" on it.
Anyway! It is now your open thread, in which you can talk about this, or about other things. Maybe what you are being for Halloween? I am going as Reptilian Queen Elizabeth, in case you are interested. As always, feel free to drop some change in our tip jar on your way out!
