I thought I was inured to Trump's bullshit, but this video actually makes me physically sick.

Vitamins are sort of like cats. If you have no cats, you'll be lonely. If you have a cat or two, you'll feel better. But that's enough cats. No one needs to load up on cats.

Yesss, an explanation for my internet-adjusted brain.

I have a number of friends and colleagues who work in London and whose living situations and livelihoods have just been severely threatened by the Brexit. Which was the point I guess.

As the Trump apocalypse becomes increasingly likely, this set of lines from Eminem's The Real Slim Shady keep running through my head:

All you do is annoy me
So I've been sent here to destroy you

Who dress like me
Walk, talk and act like me,
It just might be
The next best thing
