A while back, I decided that I no longer want to refer to the United States president-elect by name. This is for three reasons:
- So that I don’t have to think as much about him or what he might do when in office.
- The new administration is more than just one man – there is an assorted collection of climate-change deniers, nest featherers, obstructionists, and sharks who will be taking office along with him. There’s a frightening but realistic possibility that the new president might very well be a moderate when compared with some of his team.
- By all accounts, he seems to enjoy plastering his surname in large letters all over everything he gets his hands on. I would rather not add to that.
